If your long term or short term goal is to reach 200 pounds on the scale, then join me on this challenge. I’m ready to have less achy joints, have more energy, and feel better about myself.

Everyone is welcome to join at anytime!

    To be honest, it’s always frustrating to see the scale go back up even though I know it’s part of this game. Right now I should realize that I’m taking baby steps toward getting back into the habit of logging every day. I’m not so worried about going over my calories right now, it’s about getting back into it.

    This morning I ate the rest of the pumpkin roll from Thanksgiving and I thought… “well I blew it for the day!” Then I logged it as breakfast and felt better. One misstep does not ruin everything! Log it, count it, and move on.

    Progress…not perfection…is the goal.

    Feeling great!!
    My hubby and I did a road trip yesterday to pick up my daughter’s bike at college, since it’s getting too cold for her to ride it. I didn’t drink a ton of water since we were in the car for 2 hours each way, so I drank more when we got home. Today I feel thirsty.

    Thank you JM!

    Glad to hear you are feeling great! How do you figure out how much water you should intake a day?

    Today I'm headed to the library to pick up a book I have on hold 🙂. Its gotten super cold today, so I'll probably walk in the house.
    I'm trying to get back in the habit of moving daily!

    I did a quick Google search with how much water should I drink each day based on weight. 💦 I have not gotten close yet.😊

    It’s been so busy at work and at home… but it’s been nice to take a moment for myself and time to catch up with logging.

    Hi Everybody!! Currently sitting at my HIGHEST WEIGHT ever: 232 lbs. Started TODAY 100% no more excuses. I'm going to see how much I can accomplish now until March. And then again March - July! :) No matter what, I'm going to stick to 1500-1600 calories a day. I'd like to do a minimum of 30-40 minutes of exercise, take my vitamins, and drink at least 1 gallon of water a day because I know ALL of these things will help. But at a MINIMUM......sticking to my calories no matter what! :) Excited to be here!!
