    May Challenge💐

    Hi all my name is Lisa B. I live in N. California. I was at my goal weight which is 135 before Covid and then the world went crazy and now it has been 2 years teleworking and my weight slowly just creeped up and up. Living life in sweatpants every day is HORRIBLE, you don't realize how evil the expandable attires are. My life consisted of working and several mindless trips to the refrig which became my besties for 2 years the unlimited access 24hrs a day my bestie was always willing to provide comfort urg but now I am taking back control.

    Trying figure out why I am not losing is so very frustrating and defeating. I exercise and remain under 1200 calories so I am just not getting what I am missing. I will stick with it and push through but today I weighed and took some aggression out on my scale.

    Heaviest weight: 161
    Current weight: 160

    Goals:
    🌼 45 min exercise a day at minimum
    🌼 Eat healthy
    🌼 Don’t beat up my scale
    🌼 drink 90 oz water daily
    🌼 Stay positive

    May 01 - 160 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️😡😡🤬🤬🤬

    This sounds motivating! I'll give it a shot!

    So ..

    My name's Sissy. I'm a 42 years old, partially physically disabled, autism, anxiety, ptsd, pre-menopausal mom to a 13 year old.

    I like math and logic but have about a billion issues with food, so logic doesn't always fix my problems. (I am also prone to bouts of hyperbole.) And I'm legitimately addicted to Mtn Dew, caffeine, and peanut butter. Been struggling with my weight and mobility for years. This time marks my heighest weight ever. (Yay?) If you wanna know anything else, go ahead and ask! Trying to be an open book this time around.

    Anyway.... STATS!:

    42F

    Starting weight: 273.0
    Heaviest weight: 274.4
    Old starting weights: 222.3/241.6
    Former (dieting) low weight: 161.8

    May 1st (predicted): 260
    Current weight: 262.3

    May weight lost so far:
    Weight lost this year: 11.1 lbs

    Daily Focus:
    🌼 Weigh in each morning
    🌼 Eat at or under my calorie goal
    🌼 Log honestly and consistently
    🌼 Post each morning under this challenge
    🌼 Move more each day than the day before
    🌼 Avoid Mtn Dew
    🌼 No fast food/Grubhub in May
    🌼 Reduce caffeine intake from coke zero and coffee


    Stretch Goals:

    🌱 Reduce number of snacks to earn bigger meals
    🌱 Plan meals and log in advance
    🌱 Eat at least 2 full servings of fruits or veg per day
    🌱 Cut down on coffee creamer
    🌱 Keep a running total of weekly average calories for transparency.

    Hi there, it’s a long time since I joined any of these groups but this one looks good. I agree with a comment above about wfh and snacking from the fridge. I was reallly good about taking my one day hourly walk in the first lockdown ( here in the UK) but I then let that fall to the wayside when we got more “freedoms “

    Current weight 198 lbs
    Target for end of May 191

    . Log in every day
    . At least half hour walk every day
    . One swim per week

    01 May. 198
