Happy to see…
  • Rona finally got me :-( My NSV is that I’m not going to let it derail my exercise goals and will instead just scale back to some simple yoga today
  • Happy week 2! I’m 32 and 5’6” Starting Weight: 274.4 Jan Start Weight: 227.0 Jan Goal Weight: 223.0 Ultimate Goal Weight: 150.0 Jan 1: 227.0 Jan 8: 226.0 (-1.0) Jan 15: Jan 22: Jan 29: Jan 31: Got my 30+ minutes exercise in for my goal of 6 days this week. That’s 2 weeks now, with my ultimate goal of 15 weeks (trying to…
  • The nurse called yesterday with my test results and my A1C levels were in the normal range!!!! I’ve been prediabetic for a while, and I’m reversing it!
  • Completed my first week of exercising for at least 30 minutes for 6/7 days! Tomorrow is rest and then on to week 2!
  • Hey there! I’m 32 and 5’6” Starting Weight: 274.4 Jan Start Weight: 227.0 Jan Goal Weight: 223.0 Ultimate Goal Weight: 150.0 Jan 1: 227.0 Jan 8: Jan 15: Jan 22: Jan 29: Jan 31: Mini goals: Get under 200, lose 100lbs (174.4), making at least 30 minutes of daily exercise a habit. I’ve got 2 boys I’m trying to keep up with 😉
  • I’m in! Ready to post tomorrow!
  • Thanks for responding! I’ll check it out :-)
  • Thanks, that’s probably a better way to tackle things. I’ll look into that video! I will say that the program aspect that builds on itself without me having to figure it out is appealing to me, so that’s why SWEAT caught my eye.
  • Thanks, I’ll check it out! I thought about doing a bunch of free trials of apps to see if any click for me. But I also like committing to something so I can have consistency and can track change. I probably need to look at the bigger picture though and not worry about change at the beginning and instead focus on finding…
  • Thanks for your response! It’s all good insight. And it completely makes sense that what worked at 271lbs (my start weight) won’t be the same as 231lbs (my current weight). I think I need to really start committing to the fitness aspect. Now that I’ve cut down some weight and know the food routine, I think exercise needs…
  • Thank you for taking the time to respond! This was helpful. I’ve taken 1 week breaks in the past, but this time I just keep having a hard time restarting. I think a lot of it is things aligning poorly- stressful time at work+PMS+Easter holiday, things just kept colliding into the next with constant exhaustion on top of it…

  • Someone brought Crumbl cookies to work! I usually have 1/2 a cookie (they are HUGE) and today I had a 1/4 and felt completely satisfied and didn’t want more!!
  • My husband gave me a bear hug this morning and as he was about to let go, he paused, then pulled me in tighter and said “You feel different! I can tell hun!” ☺️☺️☺️

Breakfast and lunch I do awesome, but dinner/evening snacks come and I undo a lot of the deficit.

I’ve also struggled recently and these have always been helpful in the past, so I’m glad to get back with it. Good luck everyone!
  • Person, should’ve been more specific, sorry!
  • I’m working at things at a slower pace. It’s working, but will say I sometimes get frustrated with the slower loss rate and I’m thinking I need to try and add exercise into the mix now. It’s just hard working full time and not being with my kids. I end up wanting to play with them rather than carve out exercise time. And…
  • Thank you for the response, it made me feel a little better. Those are all good suggestions and I'll give them a try. New month, new start.

  • Yes, definitely water weight. I've been peeing like crazy the last couple days, so hopefully everything is normalizing and I'll be back on a downward trend soon enough. I know I'm not overeating because I'm tracking all my calories and staying well within in the green. Hormones are just a giant pain in the a**, no news…
