    (In maintenance)
    🍎🥝JANUARY 2022
    Definitely on the mend.
    • In Maintenance since July 2019
    • Smart BMI - optimal weight.
    • Muscle/Fat %ages in normal range
    Just because Covid restrictions aren’t compulsory doesn’t mean they’re not necessary.
    People are still dying out there……… and the numbers are on the rise again.
    😷Take care! Stay safe!😷
    JANUARY focus:
    * maintain weight < 140 (I have been maintaining since July 2019)
    * Maintain Daily Solid Habits
    I liked this so much I'm borrowing it.
    Every healthy habit brings me closer to scratching each of these off to NEVER see them again!
    220's; 210's; 200's; 190's; 180's; 170's; 160's; 150's; 140's; 130's

    🔹Posting weight and comments each evening.

    THERE ARE NO QUICK FIXES OR SHORTCUTS to achieving permanent change.
    REMINDERS: One or two thoughts which might give heart to some of you.
    • Daily weight fluctuations are normal, and can be as much as 2 lbs a day for no apparent reason.
    • A general downward trend is what we are looking for.
    • Eating out can cause apparent weight gain because of high sodium levels, but usually goes quickly. Drinking extra water helps with this.
    • The human body does not react instantly to what we do to it. Sometimes it can take several days to see results.
    • Plateaus are a normal part of the process. The body is consolidating and adapting to your new way of eating/exercising.
    • The closer you get to your goal weight, the more difficult it becomes to lose weight, as your body becomes more efficient at using what you feed it.
    • When you exercise you build muscle, which takes up less space than fat, so use measurements as well as weight to assess your progress.
    • Getting/Staying fit and healthy requires a lifestyle change for most people.
    Stick with the process. It DOES work! But it does take time, effort, and most of all, patience!

    I'm coming back again for try 1,100,000. This time though, I am focusing not so much on losing weight just to look better, but losing weight to lower my blood pressure and get off of my medications and overall just improve my health. No quitting this time, my health and life depend on this. So lets do this!

    Hi everyone, I’m Amanda. I did these 10 day challenges all through last summer and most of fall. I stopped due to some medical issues in November and I really missed it but just couldn’t swing it. Anyway, I’m back, having gained 5 pounds but still with the medical issue. So, I’m giving this a try again as this is the challenge that works the best for me!
    Good luck to everyone!

    Day, Weight, Comment
    1/02 - 164.7 - Had wings yesterday with Fam and I know that always brings an uptick. Oh and I hit my highest weight EVER on New Years Eve.... joy. Apologies for not posting much, MFP decided that my account had been deactivated whenever I'd try to come on to post. But it wasn't deactivated on my phone as I was able to log in, log food, update progress (measurements and weight). Finally got it sorted out, though. Happy New Year, everyone! I'm not one for resolutions so I simply have my Nerd Fitness Anti-Challenge/Anti-Resolution. Its a 5 day program to set us up to NOT fail like most resolutions. And we are only making "resolutions" we have plans for by the end of this mini challenge (plans meaning: what to do when life gets in the way and we'd normally quit). I also have my new planner which has a place to note daily what you're grateful for, your mood, your self care (yes or no: food, movement, sleep, water, nutrition/supplements/vitamins) daily affirmations, dream journals, ritual/mindful minutes (meditation, morning rituals/bedtime rituals, etc), scripting (I'm scripting my day ahead what I hope/imagine it will be. Speaking good things into existence), 3-6-9 manifestation (learning more about that still), and 1 thing I did to move forward that day. In addition, I'm conveniently over my sinus infection as of Saturday so yesterday I woke up, took all my measurements, and got ready to start my FeelGood Plan (book) work. Week 1 is mostly just paying attention -- journal about sleep (when I went to bed, when I turned lights off, when I woke up, how I felt.), food (when I ate, how I felt right before/during/after eating. Log the food to start to see patterns, etc), and begin the 15 minute workout (provided bodyweight 3x week, Mon/Wed/Fri and choose 15 minutes of activity Saturday to get me moving, even if its just walking). I'm up super early today (430am!) but I went to bed super early last night and listened to my body. Instead of forcing myself back to sleep and oversleeping, I woke up and and I'm doing my morning ritual. I decided what I'm grateful for, wrote my affirmation, completed my dream journal (didn't remember anything, but can note down FeelGood Plan stuff), check in here, and then off to work out! Then coffee once it brews so I can sip that while scripting out my day. It's a day off work (not for BF) so I'm running errands and making dinner. Sorry so long! A lot to catch up on!

    @CamandJarvis Thank you for your kind words and thoughts. I really should not complain. Many have so much more to deal with than I. I really should feel fortunate. :) Sadly, I get distracted more easily than I would care to admit. I'm glad to be back!

    Happy New Year everyone!
    I regained all I had lost in December over Christmas *le sigh*. I am a bit worried that when I take my eye off the ball things go very wrong very quickly. I think it's a sign I haven't mastered the "it's a lifestyle" thing properly.

    @refactored I feel your pain. If I don't track my food my weight starts going up. I would love to master the "lifestyle" part of it.
