    Hi all. I'm Jen, 40 from Florida. Married with 3 kids and 4 dogs, and chickens. I have struggled with weight literally all of my life. I started at 285 in January and would like to get to my first goal weight of 185 by the end of the summer. Then the final 30-50 pounds shouldn’t be a problem after that because living healthy will be a way of life by then.

    During covid, I gained at least 50 pounds, but never took it off because I stayed working remotely and my habits never really improved/changed, like my peers who were going back into the office. We did do some RVing during and after covid, and would like to keep that up, because it's great family time!

    Well, I recently just got laid off, so now I’m NOT in front of a computer 10 hours+ per day and feel like I’m free to enjoy life more. I don’t know if I want to find another job or not yet, but I’m just focusing on myself, and continuing to homeschool my kids (2 are graduating high school 1 & 3 years early and starting college this fall - very proud mama!), and I’m finishing up preschool with the youngest.

    With all of this free time now, I’m looking forward to some me time of working out/yoga, landscaping/garden, taking walks during the day with kids & the dogs, playing and laughing with them more, getting into a happy/healthy lifestyle and good routines to lose this weight for good, and just focus on what truly matters for me…. Ensuring that the oldest 2 become fun/well adjusted adults, and enjoying the little one because they grow up way too fast!

    So happy to be here, and get started on my new journey.

    I also home schooled my daughter ... we were with K12aka Cava ...I loved and I miss it ...She is now 18

    That's awesome! In Florida they have a good virtual school system.. FLVS that we use. I start on K with the youngest, and we're going to do dual enrollment with the local college starting in 6th grade, so when the kids in this program graduate from high school, they already have their associate's degree. Crazy.. huh?

    Would you rather know what your pets think of you or never hear them speak?

    I think I would never want to hear them speak

    Hi, I',m Charissa. I've been with Downsizers for over a year now (March).

    While focusing on health and making life style changes, things (like life) just get in the way and I end up losing/gaining the same few pounds. I did really well this January , February was ok, March came and I just got tired, think they call it "diet" fatigue. And while I don't consider what I'm doing as a "diet", I just got tired of all the requirements (for lack of a better description). By the end of April, I had a mental reset and am back pushing 100% towards my goals.


    Daily Goals for May
    1. Calories @1650 and protein 150g.
    2. Limit Wine to the weekend, if at all.
    3. Water - Minimum of 80 ounces
    4. Exercise 6 days a week (core/strength train/cardio)
    5. Consistently hit 10k steps - Goal 20+ days.
    6. Daily reads or audible.
    7. Post work out snack

    Motto:
    🏋🏾‍♀️ Don't think, just do it!!
    Eat well 🥗to Live Well 🚢✈️🧳
    H2O - Make it Flow 💦💦💦


    Recap: The weekend bumped me up again. It always does. I also didn't sleep well last night and I think that affects the scale as well (at least that's my story and I'm sticking to it!)

    Waffles or Pancakes. Not really a fan of either, too many carbs and then you need butter and syrup to make them worth eating :). But, If I had to chose, I'd chose waffles.

    I'd love to hear what my pets think of me. I'm petless at the moment, but when I did have them, they were treated like royalty! I saw a little Puggle this morning. He was soooo cute. I'm not quick to start a conversation with strangers, but if they have a cute dog, that quickly changes. His name is Bruno.

    @MommieJeannie ~ Welcome. You're in one of my other groups🙂 Enjoy your free time and time spent on you!
