    @MrsHermit Thanks. I had made it to just under 240 the day before Christmas.
    Now I am fasting to deplete the carbs that need to go. Back at it again

    What matters is that your back. I just have 3 days to get the last remaining things out of my system (cravings). January 1st is my day to start a new beginning. My treadmill has been fixed 3xs in the last month. I'm gonna have to try it out again today just to make sure it works this time. Ther's nothing more discouraging than building up your attitude to get back on the treadmill ( yes, you all know what I'm talking about), you get it going, get into your zone and have the treadmill stop dead. That's happened 3xs. Talk about getting a complex, when even the exercise equipment don't want anything to do with you.

    Today is the last day for 2021, Thank God. Next year has got to be better (in so many ways).
    Tonight, is a good time to purge the frig, the cupboards, your secret hiding places.... come on you know exactly what I'm talking about. It's time to take the clothes off the exercise equipment dig in the closet, find the scale or go out today and get one, you're going to need it cuz this is a challenge!! Not just a well maybe.

    Are you with me ????

    @ShadowyLady25 You can do it! Don't give up! Try small, specific changes. Look at patterns in your behavior and see if you can find "triggers" for bad behaviors and change them (do you eat when you're in between tasks? Try having tea instead.). Then look and see where you can add good habits, like reading a book before bed, setting a timer on the computer, doing five minutes of an exercise video, etc.

    I'm so grateful that God provided a place for us to move to. Now there's the prep and there's so so so much to do before we move to raw land. The task list is tremendous.

    @ladycopnh1 does packing count as purging? One day at a time! I'm still trying to fit in healthy choices in my day too. This week I started some IF, just not eating for longer (which seems to finally get my body to take the hint). I got a cold and overate a few days, but the IF days seemed to help which was good.

    Happy new year to all!

    January 1st, 2022.
    Are you still peeking in to see what it's all about or are you with us.
    I want to take off at the least 60pds this years. I am aiming to be under 200pds by Dec. 31st.
    I AM taking this challenge seriously ( or it wouldn't be a challenge ). So I am aiming for 81pds.
    The HARDEST part of all is stepping on the scale on Jan. 1st. accepting the fact and digging
    your heels in. Take it as starting a new job. You're out to do the best you can. For me, it's taking a hike in the White Mountains. Today my backpack is full ( 260pds ) and by the end of this year, it's gonna weigh a heck of a lot less, and I'm gonna feel a lot lighter to be able to move around.

    Well, I'm starting out at the trailhead (even though it's raining today).
    I'm excited.

    Starting Weight: 260

    I'm refocusing on weight loss. My thyroid levels are normal, so that shouldn't get in the way the way it has for the last year. I'm going to have the remaining half taken out in a couple weeks, so that will pause the workout/loss schedule for about a week, but otherwise I want to just put my head down and dig in!

    @ladycopnh1 The hike goal sounds great! A goal you enjoy throughout the year (gradually increasing hikes) - very nice!

    Hello everyone!

    About me:
    Age: 36
    5'6" tall
    Highest weight: 262.2 lbs
    Goal weight: 149 lbs (healthy BMI)
    Current weight: 243.6 lbs

    2022 goals
    Lose 2 lbs per week (at least 1 lb) - eat later in day, calorie limit, exercise in the morning
    Get to Onderland by the end of the year
    Make it in the new place - don't need to move again, functional and able to build a life
    Stick to small habits, goals, routine no matter the interruptions or lifestyle changes (do not set aside - it helps!)
    Devotional time in the morning
    Exercise in the morning even a little, helps
    Dishes before bed
    Crafts and music after dinner
    Device-free activities in the evening

    1/3 - 266
    1/4 - 264.6
    1/5 - 262.8
    1/6 - 262.6

    So I know this is water weight but I'll take it! I've also started exercising yeay for me. I play FitXR on my virtual reality headset. It's a HIIT workout, boxing and dance workout game. I'm loving it and it has a calorie counter in it too for my height and weight. I've also got a hello fresh delivery on Sunday. 5 recipes for 2 people. It was 50% off too. Looking forward to cooking more too.

    I think I have caught the thing, so trying to get over that. DH is further along than I am, getting better. Thankfully I have a few days to catch up on tasks once I get better. Yesterday I didn't really track (went way over calories), just focused on eating a large variety of food/veggies/fruits.

    I'm retaining ALL the water, but I know that this too will pass. So I'm drinking a lot and waiting for the twenty bathroom trips when my body decides to let go of it.
