Happy New Year!

It’s been a minute for me. I’ve been loosely tracking, loosely exercising, and loosely weighing. I’m unhappy with my current shape and need to tighten it all back up. I plan to do a dry January, get back to tracking everything, and log here at least once a week.

Good luck everyone!

    39 years old, 5'5"-ish here

    Not chasing a particular number, just physique goals. Will be shedding some bodyfat and chasing the shreds for the next 10 weeks.

    I'm 146 this-morning, pre Christmas I was bouncing between 142.5 and 143.5 so I'll I'd like to get back to the 142's ASAP - hoping a lot of the gain is temporary from extra salt and carbs. Ideally I'd like to hit 140 by Feb. Had a good break over the holidays and ate loads so certainly not going into January feeling deprived 😂. Actually looking forward to having my routine and lighter eating back.

    So far so good. My stomach feels SO much better when I wake up in the morning when I have been eating right! It’s one of the things I like most about tracking.

    I always stock up on berries when the store has a sale. Helped yesterday when I felt myself batting a craving for sweet. I don’t tend to worry about sugar too much, but I had way too much of it over the holidays so I’m not surprised to be craving.

    Hi guys,
    I'm back after a long break, I had to clear my mind and heal my body a bit.
    @Antiopelle it's so great you are back and on the mend! .What a journey but i hope you are feeling better now.

    Same to you @HoneyBadger302 - welcome back ! And yes It's crazy how fast liquid calories add up.

    @tracimckinney that's awesome about the job!

    There is plenty of inspiration and support here - I hope lots of us stick around beyond January.

    Hi Everyone! Long time no see - nice to see some familiar names pop up as well as new ones!

    2021 has been my most sedentary year yet and December was all about the food (and drink). I'm on the heavy side (13st/82.55kg/182lbs) and want to re-introduce running. I did up my PT sessions to weekly (was bi-weekly) back in October or so, and plan to go back to the gym probably early spring.

    I haven't decided on weigh in days yet, and I may just play it by ear a little. I got my starting numbers yesterday as that was my first working day of the year. Specific number goals also feel a bit too focussed. I'll just go with an arbitrary sub 180lbs goal for Jan because 1) it's achievable and 2) I really do care more about habit improvements.

    Hoping to check in a few times a month for some accountability.

    I think I'm mostly going to go with Friday weigh-ins. Having had a think, I think I'd like to ultimately go down to maybe the mid 160. Doesn't seem all that low, but my frame is medium/large, meaning I look odd if I get too thin.
