  • Hi everybody. Sorry for seeming out of touch the last few days. It has been a crazy time at work. I'm really tired tonight because I got woken up last night by endless phone calls from angry Uber drivers in the UK. My account was hacked and I had to get up at 2am and deal with shutting down my account and disputing…
  • I'm so glad more of you are thinking about this too. Even though I've had some muscle aches from the weight training this week, oddly enough I find that my joints don't hurt as much and I have a lot more energy than usual. Weight training is very good for women and helps with osteoporosis and arthritis, both of which I…
  • Good morning (and afternoon) friends! Today is a snow day for us here in New England, so I am writing to you from my comfy warm bed where my two pups, Lily Mae and Clara Belle, are snuggled up beside me under the covers. Here they are in their own bed! Thanks for getting us started Curlymop3! Today starts a new week, which…
  • I truly enjoy reading your posts. Jonathan, your struggle is so familiar to me! What you did in overcoming the cake challenge and being mindful in general is a huge achievement! Truly! Congratulations. Melissa, I also had a great workout at the gym and feel so much more in control with what's to come later. So far so good…
  • My plan for today was a bit ambitious because I didn't count on taking a 5 hour nap! I've had a pretty rough week at work and with all the new exercise I have done, I guess my body needed some good rest and sleep. I actually feel much better for it. So don't discount the impact good sleep has on our health! I still feel…
  • Hi Jess. Welcome! So glad you found us. You have us to help you keep accountable and not quit this time just because of one bad day. If you keep fighting for it, you will make a difference over the next 12 weeks. It takes about 12 weeks of consistency to change habits for the long run. I plan on keeping this going as long…
  • Great work Melissa! You are totally right about sodium. It can really sabotage your weight loss and it totally rules the scale. I know this happens to me when I have a high sodium day. So keep that in mind now for the future and don't let a high sodium day ruin your outlook on progress. You really had a great week!
  • Yay, You! That's an amazing milestone and something you can be really proud of. Congrats!
  • Hey, Ashley. Make the commitment and you can do it. Your kiddos need you!! I will send you a friend invite and also an invite to join my Lean on Me - 12 Week Fitness Achievers group. You might enjoy being part of it. We've had a great first week, but you can start any time. New goal setting starts on Monday, February 8th.…
  • That's terrific, Martin! We're so happy to have you here with us. Keep up the good work. And P.S. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your chicken (or is that a rooster?).
  • Hi Tracy! Welcome. We're going to do this together and make the best effort to reach our 12 week goals by taking little steps and focusing each week, day, hour! I'll add you to my friends list.
  • That is the most disheartening thing that we've all experienced. Seriously, it has to be the very worst! So let's all make a pact. Do not, and I repeat, DO NOT, give up or give in to what the scale tells you about yourself and DO NOT beat yourself up. Keep steady on your path and keep putting in that hard work. You will be…
  • Welcome! Your post is just fine and becomes part of the discussion thread. Keep up the focus of logging and checking in here. It seriously does help. Keeps your goals front of mind and you'll see that everyone else here is trying to do the same thing - stick to their health and fitness goals. Glad to have you in group.…
  • Wow that takes some willpower to be at Dairy Queen. Seriously, I love that place but luckily there aren't any near me at all!
  • So true! I'm also a former WW member and it does work. But I like using MFP for calorie management, because the TYPE of calories also matter a lot to me. I could spend my budget (love thinking of it as a budget), on refined carbs and processed food and still be within my calorie goal. BUT, I would likely not get in enough…
  • Ok, I'm in. No wine this weekend (I did have one glass tonight!). . Isn't it Super Bowl Sunday coming up??
  • Great updates everyone! Keep me coming and keep on track. Just sharing these little moments helps us all reflect on our week and keep those goals top of mind. 5 miles on the treadmill - awesome! No late night snacking, ditto here too! Just imagine how many calories we are saving over the course of a week but cutting down…
  • My mid-week update: I've had a strong start to the week and have managed to stick to my eating plan, calorie and protein goals, AND get in two cardio sessions and one personal training session. So I am hoping to end the week strong. I have another training session tomorrow night, then need to get in at least 2 more cardio…
  • Hi CJ, Welcome! Hope you get your cold under control soon and feel better. When the evening snacking bug hits me, I am opting for a nice hot cup of fancy tea or infused water. It helps stave off the mindless snacking before bed.
  • Welcome, Deborah, Jonathan and Pree! :) Yay! More members!! Thanks for sharing your introductions and goals. Let's do it people!!
  • Welcome Saira! You're part of the group now and I also sent you a friend invite.
  • Welcome Leslie and Deborah!
  • I'm so thrilled to see everyone here and read all your introductions, aspirations and goals. We are all different but I am motivated and inspired by everyone, which is so cool! And you know what? We can all achieve our goals. No one is looking for the impossible or has unrealistic expectations. But doing your very best to…
  • Hey Kari, those are some great goals. I have been prone to the same patterns and finally feel like setting realistic goals over manageable period of time work much better. Good luck!
  • I'm already loving this group. Thanks for joining us Emily, and Wendy. Everyone has different goals, but we share some common challenges and aspirations. Wendy, I have to say that your goal #4 is the most creative I've ever seen! Whatever keeps you on your fitness path makes sense to me! I will say that brushing my teeth…
  • Hi Jenn and Julie! Great to have you on board. I'm still getting the hang of putting the discussions up, but anyone else can feel free to create them, too. Ready both your posts reminded me to drink more water (glug, glug), so thanks for that reminder! I find that when I don't drink enough water I am much more prone to…
  • Wowza! Lots of people wanting to join us. I will send invites to everyone above this thread and will check back again later for more. If you have any problems finding the group or joining, just message me.
  • Hi Kendra! So happy you are here! I'm also on a long term quest to lose 100 pounds and it is a big goal. Breaking it down into manageable progress seems to be the best way it works for me. So welcome aboard and let's have a great week. You will feel fantastic and be able to keep up with your kiddos the more active and…
  • Okay, so anyone above this thread, I'm adding you and sending you an invite to the group if you haven't found it on your own. I'll check back here each day to see if anyone else comes along. Thanks to all - we can do it. I'm so motivated right now I think I could climb a mountain!
  • I'm so excited! Will send you all an invite to the group and you can start introductions and posting there. Happy to meet you. Let's do it!
