  • I guess I forgot to log any of my weight for the last 6 weeks. I seem to have struck a plateau on weight loss, but I think because I did the half-marathon at the beginning of May, I really had to cut back on the cardio intensity and I've been gaining muscle mass pretty consistently. It's hard to tell, but I don't think I'm…
  • Welcome @mrmota70 and @runner_girl83! I haven't been as active in the forums the past month; I took a job in Virginia and am closing on a house in Chester next week, so getting the California condo ready to be a month-to-month rental through AirBnB has been a full-time job in itself. We found a leak in the ceiling of our…
  • Nice! Welcome all. Good to have people getting back in.
  • Hi and welcome to our group!
  • I finished my first half-marathon! 2:19:55! An hour better than my training times lol. 60 more days to train for a marathon.
  • Everyone here is pretty active - just add the friends in this group :)
  • Training for my first half-marathon on Sunday and have been focusing on muscle gains, so there was a 1/2 pound gain between the 13th and the 20th. It's likely higher now "giggle" but we'll see tomorrow! STARTING WEIGHT AND DATE WITH MFP (MY FITNESS PAL): 06/30/2021, 274 YOUR CHALLENGE STARTING WEIGHT FOR THIS CHALLENGE:…
  • I meant to stop by to tell this group that I did my first 5k race at the beginning of April with my doggo (she got doggy 1st place, I got 3rd). It was a lot of fun! I'm nervous because I'm doing my first half-marathon on Sunday and I'm recovering from a weird bronchitis thing. Anyway, the cut-off time in 3.5 hours and thus…

  • I was walking by black reflective glass in front of Whole Foods on Tuesday and didn't recognize myself; I looked... great?
  • Way to go Tony! keep up the great work.
  • @jessienani How's your training going? Still grinding over here - finally started my core work and lifting. Clocked in at 197 today; came back here to draw inspiration from your photos!
  • Ok, keeping this going from winter. I changed my work-out regime to focus on core and body-building so I don't expect to lose much weight, if any. Still, this was the best part of my week before - so I'm gonna partake. STARTING WEIGHT AND DATE WITH MFP (MY FITNESS PAL): 06/30/2021, 274 YOUR CHALLENGE STARTING WEIGHT FOR…

  • Allllllllright! I'm calling it quits kiddos, and heading into phase 4 of my 1-year transformation that ends on June 30th, 2022 (currently sitting at 75.8 pounds lost). I included starting and ending photos for the challenge. This honestly really helped me stay motivated and I appreciate this so much! I hope you all got the…

  • I started my journey in June 2021. I'm down 70 pounds, and I've experienced 3 nasty plateaus (currently on day 32 of one) during that timeline from 272 to 202 pounds. Plateau 1: October 6th, 2021: 20 days total @ 239 pounds. I didn't change much diet-wise, but added 30 minutes of exercise to my daily 1-hour mark. On days…

  • @emmamcgarity I'm actually in the market for two new pairs of running shoes, as the soles and compression on my nike's and adidas are pretty much shot now. I have another pair I got for Christmas that are unique, I forget what the brand name is called, but they're bright blue and orange and have huge compression zones with…
  • @gradchica27 I think it was likely this! The pain has been gone for awhile now. It was a weird occurrence for sure. I figured out that running with my dog was ultimately doing something to that region because of the torque applied when I have to pull her; I've since made a conscious effort to adjust my technique and I'm…

  • @marikaCL that sounds insane lol, I don't know where you got the inner strength from to do that. I do a 5 mile hike with 2000 elevation gain and my legs are shot for days after lol
  • I was telling Jill last week, I'm like 90% set on attempting my first half-marathon on March 5th/6th. I haven't committed yet because I want to see how my last long run next week goes. I struggled a bit last week after completing an 11.5 mile session on Monday - legs wouldn't work right, and by Friday I could barely even…

  • Good morning all, and happy Friday. I didn't know where else to take this, because this is where I originally posted my story and I couldn't quite find another storyboard that fits - I know that I am well beyond the original requirements for this thread, but I wanted to give a 30-day update on my progress. I've removed the…
