Mission Slimpossible Team Chat - NOVEMBER 2021

jugar Posts: 9,067 Member

Here is your Team chat room for November 2021. This is where you weigh in every week, post your goals and progress, discuss any issues or topics of interest, share ideas, support your teammates, receive help when you need it, and dream big. Try to post often, and help each other succeed!

We have six great teams. The group and team leaders are as follows:

Every challenger weighs in on their chosen day, every week without fail! At the end of each week, the tallies are done to determine the team and individuals with the most weight lost. The best losers are announced with full fanfare every Sunday. The team competition is all in good spirits - may the most losing win!

We also celebrate those small, steady losses. If you lose, however small an amount, you are in the green! At the end of the month, we celebrate everyone who lost at least a bit every week. You are heading steadily towards your goal even if you aren't at the top of the weight loss leaderboard!

To make your weigh-in easy to find for your team Captains, please put it right at the top of a message, and use this format:

Weigh In Day:
PW (Previous Weight):
CW (Current Weight):

If you miss two weigh-ins in a row without asking for a break, you will be dropped from the team, so be sure to inform your team captain if you are traveling, sick, or just need some time off. If you take a break, you are moved to the Support Team. You can remain on the Support Team for as long as you need to. You still participate in the discussions, you can weigh in if you want to, but it will not count in the weekly tally.

Once you reach your goal weight, you join the Goal Zone! You continue to weigh in every week. If you have 2 weeks above your self-defined goal zone, you go back to the regular team to lose that amount before it builds up. You will have a chance to hone those maintenance skills and stick with your team!

In addition to your own team, there are weekly F2F Full Group CHALLENGES. You can do all or none - it's up to you. Participating adds a lot to your success, so we hope to see you there often! These can involve anything fitness, health, or nutrition - and they’ll get you moving, thinking, and learning about this journey. Check the Announcements section for full group challenges.

Let’s show our fellow challengers some F2F love! Introduce yourselves right away, and let the new month begin!!

    Hello everyone!!! Welcome to our new members - and welcome back returning members!! I am so glad you are all here! :)

    I am Teresa one of your Mission Slimpossibles captains along with Mark (@broncobuddee) The Mission Slimpossibles also have two wonderful motivators, @trooworld and @Katmary71, who help keep our team supported and chatty!

    :star: Stuff you need to know! :star:

    1)Weekly Weigh-In
    PLEASE read the opening post so that you know the format to use when recording your weekly weight. Our team captain, @broncobuddee will be putting your weight into the spreadsheet so please tag him if you need to move your weigh-in day or have other weight logging questions. Also please feel free to post your all-time losses as well and that way we can celebrate with you when you hit a big milestone.

    2) Check-ins
    Along with our weekly weigh-ins, we REALLY encourage our team members to participate in regular check-ins. It’s a great way to stay accountable to yourself and it allows the team to cheer you on and offer support as you need it. We are a community, and we are stronger together!

    3) Habit Tracker & Challenges
    For added help in your health journey make sure to take advantage of our monthly Habit Tracker and weekly/monthly challenges that you will find on our Home Page. Tracking our habits and doing the challenges will keep you mindful of your choices and help keep you motivated.

    :star:Finally, let's get to know each other! Please share your name, where you live, and what brought you here to The Fat 2 Fit Challenge Group. If you have specific goals for this year, please share those as well. We are here to support and cheer you on! :)

    I’ll go ahead with my introduction

    As I said above, my name is Teresa! I’m 55, live in Georgia with my incredible husband, my mom, and our fur baby Maggie Mae. I am the ministry assistant for my small church and a volunteer teacher in our children’s ministry.

    I’ve been striving for a healthy weight for most of my life and getting closer every day, but the struggle is real and ongoing. My primary diet is low carb and I’m involved in something called Data Driven Fasting that is run by Marty Kendall of Optimising Nutrition. You can Google if interested and please feel free to ask me.
    I also enjoy working out and doing Beachbody on Demand programs and I walk on my treadmill. For fun, I love to do jigsaw puzzles, listen to music, watch TV, and play with my dog.
    As your captain, I promise to remain available and supportive! This group means so much to me as does the success of each one of you. Please feel free to add me as a friend and message me any time. <3

    OK…your turn to share! :)

    @Katmary71 You are most welcome! Thanks, it should be fun! :) I'm sorry about you not being able to go to your aunt's party. Carving pumpkins with the nephews sounds fun. That's fun that you worked out to scary music.

    @TeresaW1020 I'm so very sorry about your husband. I hope he recovers quickly.

    @stanlfink Congrats on the loss! What a great way to start off. I think COVID really messed with a lot of people/is messing with a lot of people. You are in good company!

    @krea4 That's great that you figured out your triggers. You made some good progress! And congrats on finishing the month strong. :D

    Hello all. I will go ahead and do my introduction. I am one of the Slimpossibles' Team Motivators. I live in southern California with my husband. I'm originally from the midwest, specifically Ohio. I was on WW for many, many years but recently decided I had gained all I could from that program so now, I am counting calories. I hate to exercise but we have recently purchased a Tonal, which is an in-home gym system using magnetic weights and tension. On it, you can do pretty much all the exercises you would do at a gym and I absolutely love it. I spend what little spare time I have reading, doing artwork and photography, and watching movies. I also love to cook and have over 6,000 recipes, pretty much anything you'd want, so if you need recipes, please let me know. I'm happy to post them!

    Saturday check-in: I was expecting a gain this morning as I went to Colorado to visit my best friend last weekend so when I saw a loss, I was incredibly grateful. I have a lot to do today/tonight: I am having a mini-Halloween party tonight. It will be me and my husband and my sister-in-law. We will be in costumes watching scary movies and eating appetizers. We will have "Vampire's Kiss Martinis". It should be really fun. Here's a picture of one of the appetizers I am making:


    100-day challenge commitments:
    1. I will put my utensil down between bites. ✅
    2. Chew slowly and chew enough. ✅
    3. Stop Eating C.R.A.P. Challenge: X

    Hi everyone

    Newbie here - my name is Rita and I live in the small village of Hoo in Kent, U.K. I live with my hubby of nearly 50 years, have two wonderful grown up kids and three beautiful granddaughters.

    Have battled with my weight ‘forever’ and have continually yo-yo’d up and down with the pounds - but never permanently give up aiming for that elusive goal LOL.

    I love walking and since the pandemic have worked out along with U-tube videos. I’m not a fan of flex or strength exercises as I get bored quickly.

    So my first check in (30 October)

    @RYcare Welcome back! You've got this.

    @Rigibann Welcome to the team! :D Walking is great exercise. What kind of YouTube exercise do you like to do? Have you ever done any Leslie Sansone walking YouTube videos? Those are great.

    @Firefly743 @bgame4 Congrats on the losses!

    @TheGlwUp Never give up, hang in there. You are doing great. This is just a blip on the graph of your weight loss journey.

    @krea4 Wow, that's fantastic! What a great NSV. Congrats!

    @Cornanda Wowee! Congratulations. That must feel great! Woo hoo! Thank you re: the headaches and the loss. ;)

    Hello all. I had a great time last night. I didn't eat much, just one small appetizer plate of food. We had a drink called a Vampire's Kiss which was good. I'm going for a walk this morning with a friend, it should be nice. I need to eat something before I go because after the walk, I am donating blood. Here are some pics from last night.
