    Congratulations to JaysFan82 who has already lost 21lb, well done.
    I'm refocusing the group now so some of our newer team mates can join. Anyone wishing to commit to losing 11lb by Christmas please let me know (people already in the challenge can you let me know if you want to continue with the 21lb or go for the 11lb
    Thanks Lis

    I would like to be part of the challenge to lose 11 by Christmas.

    Glad to have you in the challenge. I'll take this week's weight as your starting weight :)

    This weeks steps:
    Sunday: 3,049

    Tuesday: 10,071
    Wednesday: 10,552
    Thursday: 4,265

    I am sorry to say that I am sick my friends. After receiving my flu vaccination on Monday, I can down with a severe case of the flu Thursday evening. I have been sick since then, unable to eat anything and keep it down. Fever, chills, cold sweats, everything flu has to offer. Too weak to sit up let alone walk. So, don’t expect much from me this week. We will see how things go next.

    Awesome loss but being sick is not the way you want to lose it. I hope you feel better soon.

    Made it through Thanksgiving Dinner unscathed. Just had some white meat turkey, a little bit of mashed potatoes and some pasta. No dessert or party potatoes. Sigh lol.

    You have great willpower. I have been dreaming about the pumpkin cheesecake we are having for dessert today ever since I ordered it.

    Week in Review

    5'8"
    SW:168
    PW:160.2
    CW:158.1

    Last weeks goals:
    1: Prep and Plan meals :)
    2: Run x4 :'( only got 3 in
    3: Strength x3 :)
    4: Close all my circles on my apple watch :'( missed one day

    Overall, a good week. This is week 2 of me being back to MFP and tracking which usually has a slip up and a quit. Not this week, not this time.

    I slipped up on Friday, just over 2,000 calories consumed :( but I was very good yesterday for Canadian Thanksgiving.

    What I did Good! Meal plan and prep and sticking to it. (except friday)

    What needs work! Working out on workdays. I work 7am-7pm and its dark when I leave and when I get home. I hate running in the dark by myself. This week I will try power walks on my lunch/dinner breaks and finding good cardio videos online.

    No change, but that's ok. It will go down as long as I stick to my plan.

    Hey, @Megan_smartiepants1970 ans @lindamtuck2018 : can I change my posting dates to Mondays? For some reason I can’t get it together Sunday nights to actually make a post. I’m so sorry! I do want to be in this group.

    PW: I can’t remember

    Steps:
    10/2: 1,634
    10/3: 5,307
    10/4: 5,363
    10/5: 6,077

    I have been so stressed out lately: my diet and exercise have definitely continued to take a hit.
    Having said that - I have had a little bit of good news. I’ve been able to work my way into a part-time job doing what I used to love and have missed terribly. I used to work at a vet clinic with the plan of going to vet school. Long story short: I realized I don’t want to be a vet, I like the hands-on work of the tech. I switched plans and went into teaching - where I’ve been the last 10 years. Over the years I’ve kept in touch with an awesome coworker from my clinic days, and asked her if I could come work at her clinic a couple days a month (she and her vet-husband own their own clinic now!) She said yes! I am SO excited!! I’ve missed that world so much! The scheduling is perfect because it will only be 2 Saturdays a month, and they’re only open 8-2: so it won’t even be my whole Saturday! Plus it’ll be extra money coming in, in the field I’ve missed with an awesome coworker!!
    Hopefully this major boost in every aspect will also help with some weight loss. I will be moving around more, and it’ll alleviate some stress which hopefully will impact my diet, etc.

    Anyway… again, many apologies for not posting. It is not intentional, and I certainly do not want to be removed!

    Have a good week everyone.
