    I need to take a break for a couple weeks. Starting a new chemo regimen Friday and unsure what the effects are. I am under 150 so have lost a couple more pounds I will log it on Thursday and then see what happens with the new routine.

    Do you want me to move you to the support team for the month of October?

    So happy to have some new faces on the team! Welcome aboard @healthygirlintransit and @ssssseika !!!

    As for everyone else, last week was not our best. I've decided to buckle down a bit further this week to hopefully help reach a team-wide loss for next week. If anyone is interested in joining in, let me know!

    What are you doing to make this week a bit better than last? Personally, I'm not eating any snack foods straight out of the bag - it MUST go into a bowl, and I can only put one serving into the bowl at a time.

    As I'm reading this, I am literally eating candy corn out of the bag. I buy 1 bag a year...but I should not be grazing on it. Don't know what I will do ...will think on it.

    @minstrelofsarcasm I'm with you for trying harder this week. Today I have concentrated on making better choices. I wanted to treat myself at lunch as I'm tired and stressed so I bought a fruit salad and sandwich instead of something big and chocolatey. Tonight I am going to have a smaller portion than my tall slim partner who is actually trying to gain weight!

    An extra motivator for me is that I have a really nice winter coat but it's just too tight at the moment, I'd really like to wear it soon as its getting chilly 😁

    What’s up squad, happy to be part of the team, do I need access to the October group or is this it?

    I’m big into lifting weights and am currently training for a half marathon run in late October. Hoping to be around 185-190 by end of October, I already started losing weight and hoping to keep momentum.

    Weigh-in: Saturdays
    Pw: 211
    Cw: 206

    When the October thread opens, Liselyn (jugar) will post a link to the new chat, where we'll be posting throughout the month. You're welcome to hang out and chat in here, but you won't be required to make any weight updates until next week.

    A little bit of a slump this week compared to the previous. I wonder if the weather has something to do with it - I know I haven't been getting outside as much as I'd like recently, and it's all because of the wind and rain.

    Hi everyone! Sorry to not come over and say before now, I'm finding it a little difficult to navigate the community section on my mobile so have moved to the laptop instead! Thanks so much for the welcomes.

    I'm struggling with motivation at the moment, particularly on eating - I'm not doing too bad at exercising at the moment but mindless eating is a very bad habit of mine. I'm hoping that having the accountability weigh ins will help! I'd love to join the steppers challenge from October if that's OK?

    Feeling proud of myself today though because I was so, so tempted to skip the planned gym session this evening after a pants day at work. I did not, and I (mostly) worked hard :smile: And it meant I hit my step goal for the day even if the less said about food today, the better.

    Hope everyone is doing OK and well done on the marathon training @kicomataj1, would love to know more about your weights routine as well - I love weights but am never quite sure where to start with an organised plan.

    Hi! Welcome aboard!

    And absolutely, you're welcome to join the step challenge in October. All you need to do is post your October Week 1 (October 2nd - 8th) steps by October 11th and I'll take care of the rest!

    Hello Team Weight No More,

    Weight wise, I have been putting it on since mid 2020. My biggest issue has been eating whatever I want, whenever I want to. At the end of last year, I had a back injury, which had made it tough for me to do a whole heck of a lot as far as physical activity. I finished PT a couple weeks ago and my back is almost back to wear it was. I am hoping that having to post my weight once a week and the food tracking that I am going to start doing with MFP will help me shed some of this weight. Also going to start exercising again.

    I'm very excited to start and hope that I reach my goal weight in the coming months!

    Thank you!
