  • Thanks @pierinifitness ! Have to take my own advice for the next year of recomp :). Small goals 1 day at a time.
  • Baby steps terry! Set your deficit goals and start loading up on those chicken and veggies! :). Or whatever works for you. Teeny tiny goals make the whole thing doable. I found being in group challenges helped with motivation for everything from logging everyday, staying under calories, getting steps in, etc.. I’m 6’4”, 39…
  • Thanks guys! Keep up the little losses @erikNJ . Awesome to see the progress you’re making. And keep being your awesome self @HASWLRS ! :)

Why is it so exhausting to sit on your butt for 6 hours?! Surprised I went over calories today. Had a lot of snacks packed and was feeling hungry most of the day. I didn’t log until…
  • Happy Easter! We’ve already done 1 egg hunt and party for the kids and are off to visit my step brothers house today for 2 kids birthday parties combined with an early Easter celebration. Then Sunday we head to my in-laws for another Easter dinner and egg hunt for the kids. Busy weekend of driving and family get togethers…

  • I have one that helps occasionally. But like you said, works best right away. Mostly this just takes time when it’s happened in the past. I over did it chopping wood which caused the muscle spasm, then it pulls my vertebrae out of alignment which causes more uncle spasms. It’s just a matter of not pushing things while…

  • @Coral333 so sorry to hear about your tough weak. I think I can speak for everybody here when I say we’ve all been there with emotions and food. First, you didn’t undo it all. Most likely you didn’t actually gain 4 pounds of fat. Water weight fluctuations really suck, but they also disappear quickly once you’re on track.…
  • Awesome drop this week!

  • @swauters If it was up to me I’d be in bed all day. Little kids and dogs constantly seem to need something so there is always a ton of up and down and moving around. It’s not a fun 7000 steps, that’s for sure. There actually is a NSV with all this back pain. My back brace no longer fits me, it’s way too big! :). It’s a…

  • I started changing things 7/25/18. Earlier in July I was mowing my lawn when I was suddenly swarmed by yellow jackets. I jumped off my mower, landing on 1 leg, and POP! I tore one of my hamstrings off and shredded my knee. After a few weeks of not moving it occurred to me I can’t exercise my way out of being over weight…
