    Good morning, everybody! I am looking to start this weight-loss journey *again* after gaining/losing for many years. (long story...more on that later?) Anyway, I was looking for a challenge group that I used to belong to here a couple of years ago; it started up every 3 months. This group is the closest I've been able to find.
    I hope it's ok if I join, even at this late date...but I want to LOSE this weight that I've been carrying around since the pandemic; maybe, with any luck, I'll be able to KEEP it off this time. I've done it before; I can do it again.

    Starting weight: 198 lbs (as of today, Friday, 22 Oct., 2021)
    Goal weight: 135 lbs
    Current weight: 198 lbs
    Total weight lost: none so far
    This week's successes: I bought a new bike! 🚲😂
    This week's challenges: more walking, less sitting

    @whitewave39
    There is a 100 day challenge (approximately 3 months) that just started up again for Oct 22 - Jan 29. I participate it in along with this because I need multiple check points! I love the weekly challenge for 52 weeks ... it lets me see if I'm on track and a view of my progress for the year (that I've not stepped away or got lost during the year). But the shorter challenges let me focus on short term goals.
    Good luck on getting back into the groove of losing!

    Thank-you, LilyLady! I appreciate the help...as it turns out I actually joined that group 2 years ago & completely forgot about it! I guess I must've gotten busy/distracted/lazy...you name it?!
    Anyway, I will keep track of myself (and hopefully, my progress) both there AND here in this group.
    It's always nice to know that I'm not alone...even tho' it sometimes feels that way...
    love, Jenn. 💙 (whitewave39)

    Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in day out.
    A pound a week seems reasonable. Why is it so hard?
    42 down 10 weeks till 2022 🎉

    Ultimate Lifetime Goal: Weigh Less Each Year Than the Last
    2019 Starting Weight: 245 (1/2/2019) BMI 43.4
    2020 Starting Weight: 235 (1/1/2020) BMI 41.6
    2021 Starting Weight: 212 (1/1/2021) BMI 37.6
    Goal for 2021: <200 (Dr set target to reach & stay under 200)
    Stretch Goal for 2021: <170 (Overweight instead of obese)

    Past week's successes: I’m walking … and back on track to whittle down the pounds gained during vacation
    This week's challenges: Need to put on the full press court and get back to healthier eating!

    Hey everyone, Sorry I haven't been on here regularly with updated posts but I thought that being off I would have plenty of time to work on me but apparently all I think about is running out of money and reject letters after interviews. I will post this weekend on my progress but in sure I'm not going ti be proud of it. Sorry to vent but my mfp friends have been a positive light for me. I look forward to seeing your posts. I hope everyone has an awesome weekend.

    Stretch Goal for 2021: <170 (Overweight instead of obese)

    Note: Lowest in August 201.1
    Past week's successes: I sat down and created a menu! Reading Sugar Crush. Got my mom to multiple doctor’s appts, helped my DIL when she had an issue and had to see the OBGYN (due in Dec and my son was out of town), and made it through many many celebrations without drinking during the parties over the weekend.
    This week's challenges: Need to put on the full press court and get back to healthier eating!

    Testing out the changes. I saw mentioned that they are no longer supporting BBCodes. I was using color to highlight. No more color. No more bold or italics. No more hiding some of the history in spoilers to make the current messages more visible. 

    Looks like copy and paste spaces out my lines because it is using new paragraph. hmmmm 

    NOT A FAN!


    If you know how to use a new spoiler please let me know!

    When you click in the Comment box, click the paragraph symbol to the left, then click the Quote symbol, then click Spoiler. Yeah, they made it so easy to find.

    To type outside the Spoiler box, hit return, click the eyeball, then the parapgraph icon.

    To bold italicize and strikethrough, double click the word and click which one you want.

    Changes for changes' sake and to justify jobs.
