  • @Katmary71 nudged me to share thoughts about the idea of getting just a little bit better, day by day. James Clear (author of Atomic Habits) has my all-time favorite picture of why it works to focus on getting a little bit better. It's the same principle as why you want to start saving, even just a bit, when you are young…

  • @Cornanda - Sending a hug. I so get the frustration. To all the brilliant things @micaroo4 said, I can only add -- salt? That makes my weight jump. Anyway, keep an eye on the things you are doing and watch for the patterns, to see if you can find what adjustments you want to make. Keep on doing! @trooworld - Yes, I have…
  • Hi there! I have done at least 15 minutes of movement every day this week and am feeling good about that. Today's movement so far has been wall/counter pushups, running up a flight of stars several times, and doing steps in the living room while watching something for a few minutes. I am about to shop for an audiobook and…

  • @sleepygirl79 -- Hang in there! It is oh, so human, to get disappointed with results, get upset, and give up! I am so, SO familiar! YAY, you, for getting back in the game after just a week! Tracking food can be a challenge, so forgive yourself and get back at it, if you miss some meals. Adding some fruit and veggies, and…
  • Austin checking in -- I had grand plans for a long walk yesterday, but prep for a Super Bowl party took longer than hoped. That said, I did get in way more than 15 minutes of movement. It was just housecleaning (stairs, vacuuming, etc.) rather than a lovely outdoor walk! I have already won at the game for today. I got in a…
  • @Katmary71 - Thank you so much for all your work corralling the numbers! We're grateful to have you and the rest of the spreadsheet team. It's a big job, and much appreciated!

  • Checking in on yesterday: 🟢 Great food choices. I was really happy with them. I had two social events with tempting food, a coffee date at a place that makes super tasty cookies, and a party with platters of not-the-best for -me food. I stuck with healthy choices so I could check in with a little green circle! :) 🟡…
  • @trooworld - I am so glad you liked some of the music! King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard is amazing! My son introduced me to them. I liked your silly cheese song! Your pug party made me smile. I hope all goes well with DH today. @865jessica - Great job holding pretty steady this week. All your goals sound great! You are…
  • Hurray! Challenge accepted. Super Bowl party or no, I am promising myself to get in my 15 today!

  • Belated Ice Breaker Answer I listen to a bunch of different things. I love 80's music (pop, punk, grunge, etc), classic Motown, 50's classics, jazz of many kinds, western classical. So much lovely music in the world. Here are a few current favorites: King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard Bluesy jazzy piece by maybe the most…
  • Austin here, with a belated check-in! It's so inspiring to read all this! Today was a good No Zero Day: 🟢 Food was on plan and under my calorie goal. I need to eat more veggies. Ah, well, I will get there. No zero! 🟡 Movement was under goal. I did get a little walking in and ran the stairs a few times, so not a zero! 🟢 I…
  • Great! Back to work I come! I have been letting life get in the way of health, and am determined to turn things around. WEIGH-IN DAY: Monday STARTING WEIGHT: 223.1 My wild guess is that I weighed the same last Monday as this one. :) I think I held steady.
  • I missed the window for February, but would like to join the Mission Slimpossibles team. Katmary suggested I might be able to join the chat for this month, and be part of team weigh-ins starting in March. Let me know! If that doesn't work, I'll put a reminder in my calendar to join in next month's window. Many thanks!
  • @DrewsAnna - Hurray! That is such great news! @trooworld - Me, too, to not wanting breakfast! I usually fast until lunchtime, though I have coffee (about 40 calories all told, as I include some almond or cashew milk). Maybe there's a way something like that can work for you? I keep reading about the value of a longer…

  • Username: AustinRuadhain Weigh-in: Mondays SW: 265.2 PW: 205.9 CW: 205.9 Sorry, team! It was a crazy week, family-wise. I did super great on exercise, but only so-so on food. Okay most of the week, and then went to the Renaissance Festival yesterday. Onwards! Today has been crazy because my husband and I needed to drop…

  • Happy Sunday, all! Mihani, congratulations on your weight being down. You have been great about eating on plan all month, and it's paying off! I hope you got in some good rest today. I did a long martial arts workout again yesterday (3 hours), and was kind of beat after that. Today I did a long walk. I need to do prep for…
  • Happy Sunday! I am catching up. Yesterday was super busy, and I peeked in and read, but didn't reply. @GabiV125 , @FushiaKat and @txcritter69 - Congratulations on being on the leaderboard! @DrewsAnna - Woohoo to all that work you are doing with dumbbells and resistance bands. It all sounds great! And double hooray to…
  • @txcritter69 Your before and after pictures are inspiring! What fun! I especially love the puppy supervising in some of the photos! @trooworld - I am glad you are keeping an eye on yourself as well as the pups.
