  • @AlexandraFindsHerself1971, yay to the bike! I've considered trying a cycling class, any tips or advice for someone who has literally never done a class? Do you find it to be a good workout? @AngelaHButterfly, welcome! Wow, Egypt, I bet that is going to be beautiful when the time comes. Great goals, I also am restarting.…
  • @uyister, thanks for the yogurt tip! Nice loss, I did T-25 awhile ago and it was quite the workout. @Tarzan37, sounds like a great visit with yummy foods! @Lasmartchika, sorry to hear about the stressful week, I hope this week is a little better. @Zadviv2, hello! Sounds like you're already on a great start. @MaxCat1000,…
  • November Weigh-In 11/2: 245.6 11/08: 244 So, progress! Did not incorporate exercise this week, but I did feel more in-control regarding my food and calming down excessive snacking. This week I am hoping to slowly start adding exercise back in. I really fell off the wagon, so I don't want to dive headfirst into 5x a week…
  • @pamiede, oh my goodness, I was wondering where you were. So happy you're on the mend and I hope that process continues. @KeriA, I hope the new job continues to go well! @chupacabragumbo, so sorry to hear about the hurricane and your grandfather. That is a lot at one time, sending you hugs. And thank you for what you do as…
  • Hi all! Hopefully starting November with a fresh start and mind. Thank you @RavenStCloud for setting up this space for us, so appreciated! October did not go well for me, but it helped me see what I need to work on to get back on track to where I was. November Weigh-In 11/2: 245.6 Goals! *Exercise 3x-5x per week…
  • I think I am going to put a pause on kickboxing and try a new group fitness class. I think I just need to switch my routine up a bit to find something new and excited to keep me motivated. I've loved kickboxing, but some of the times aren't working with my schedule any longer, so I use that as an excuse not to go, and then…
  • @heatherbluebell, I LOVE that advice, thanks so much for sharing it. Seriously, that is helpful. I hope the nutrionist visit goes well, I have always been interested in seeing one, but I've never done it. @MuttiNM, it really can feel like a long journey, but you're doing it. Those are such great accomplishments to have.…
  • @KMC55, you are definitely right, just have to keep going! We got this. @orangequilt, yes, that is exactly what I do, thanks for the kind words. @KeriA, yes, very overwhelming, but still trying to keep going. I know I can do it, I just have to get my mind focused. Thanks for the encouraging words! @remedieigotcha, thanks…
  • Hi all! I've definitely fallen off the wagon, hard. When I get overwhelmed, I shut down, and I have some life stuff happening that's causing me to feel ridiculously overwhelmed. What is frustrating is I can feel myself start to shutdown, begin to not care, fall back into those old habits and there's a little voice that is…
  • @aliciap0116, so sorry to hear about your husband. I hope he’s still on the mend! I also hope the COVID scare is nothing but a scare. @speyerj, thank you, I appreciate the positive words. I’ve been working on positive self-talk and it really does make a difference. And I made it to my workout class even though I didn’t…
  • @remedieigotcha, thank you for the supportive words and ideas. Sometimes I get a little overwhelmed with graduate school, my work, and trying to balance losing weight. It feels like a battle I won't win, but I know I just have to keep going and keep working on shifting my mindset. I am feeling a bit better and more focused…
  • @Lasmartchika, nice loss! And it sounds like you're hitting your goals. @AlexandraFindsHerself1971, make sure to take care of yourself, too. That space looks great! @micwrites, I agree. It is so nice to read stories of people struggling and succeeding. I love that visualize of a bungalow, you're taking the steps to get…
  • Weigh-In 10/1: 238.8 10/9: 239.2 🎃 October Goals 🎃 *log everyday, accurately and honestly: yes! Definitely too much sodium this week. *workout 3-5 times per week, preferably 4 *be kind to myself: hit my goal of 4x this week with two in the morning. I always feel better after a morning workout because it’s done and out of…
  • @KeriA, sending good vibes for the job!!
  • @iloveeggnog, that's a great idea. I find when I do side by sides it's much easier to see a difference. I think I might do that today just to boost my confidence. It really is hard for us to see all the changes because we look at ourselves every day. @shorepine, you're right. If I am kind to others when they're struggling,…
  • Hi to everyone new here! :smile: @MuttiNM, ahhh that is amazing!! So happy for you, you've worked so hard. I'm sure it came with a lot of emotions, but you did it and you should feel so proud. @shorepine, welcome back, you're going to crush your October goals! Ugh, I usually try to be positive and encouraging to other…
  • @janek1705, welcome! I also give myself one "cheat" day a week, I don't log but I still try not to overeat or indulge too much. It is the day where my partner and I order out, so I try not to stress too much. @Riddikulus89, I have also been struggling HARD to wake up in the morning since I WFH two days a week and…
  • Weigh-In CW: 238 10/1: 238.4 I usually weigh Friday, but I decided to do today since it was the first and I also knew I was going to be eating a bit of a heavier meal tonight so I wanted a bit more accurate result. I am quite sore from my exercises, so I am not too surprised by the small uptick, but I am hoping for a loss…
  • Hi everyone! I’m so happy I was able to come back for the September thread and now I’m more excited for October. SW: 272 CW: 238 GW: ?? My weigh-in days are on Fridays, so I plan to weigh in on 10/2 and I’ll report my starting weight then. I also don’t give myself a goal weight because I tend to become number obsessive so…
  • @speyerj, stress eating is frustrating. Also, sounds like your roll was quite impressive! Great work on the running. @cppeace, great loss! I love dancing as workouts. @AlexandraFindsHerself1971, I'm glad you're finally having your whoosh! @PennycillinEQ, you're having a nice, consistent loss though, great work! And nice…
  • Weekly Weigh-In 9/11: 239 9/18: 240 9/26: 238 I almost cried on the scale. I can’t remember the last time I saw this number. It’s also surprising since I felt like I was eating a lot more than normal this week. I was trying to be more intuitive with my body, so I’m proud of myself I was able to do so and still show a loss.…
  • @Riddikulus89, I love the "lessons learned" portion of your goals. We all have lessons to learn and ways to improve ourselves. I also notice if I don't eat as late the night before a weigh-in, I usually record lower. I am supposed to weigh-in tomorrow and I do not know how the results will be, but I am trying to be…
  • Weekly Weigh-In 9/11: 239 9/18: 240 Not too surprised by this, it is TOM for me so I am honestly surprised it isn't a lot higher. I also didn't really hit the gym last week, just was in a bit of a funk and listened to my body. I am hoping to get back on track this week though! @motivatedsister, great loss! @lilann1961,…
  • Thanks for the advice everyone, I am going to go through my closet this weekend and sort things out! Then try to find a few shirts to hold me over from the Goodwill. Luckily I am only in the office two days per week, so I don't need too many shirts and I can dress up a lot of what I have, I'll just need to get creative. I…
  • I'm not sure if anyone can relate, but it definitely sent me in a tizzy this morning. Some of my shirts are getting too big, I was wearing them before because they were loose but nothing that was unflattering. Now most of my shirts are loose to the point where it no longer looks the best as I work in a semi-professional…
  • @AlexandraFindsHerself1971, I also have to get up and moving otherwise things I have planned just won't happen. I am trying to turn myself into a morning exerciser but that is a work in progress at the moment. @katescurios, welcome! We are here for your successes and any struggles you may have. This is a wonderful group of…
  • Weekly Weigh-In 9/4: 241 9/11: 239 September Goals *Weighing under 241 for month of September--good so far *Continue exercising 3-5x a week, preferably 4--accomplished! *Track food daily, even when over calorie goals--successful! *Continue practicing self-kindness when working on relationship with food--always a work in…
  • @orangequilt,thank you! @CupcakeCrusoe, yummy, I wished I like oatmeal/oats, I know they can be so filling, but I just cannot get past the taste. @AlexandraFindsHerself1971, same to you! @iloveeggnog, it is definitely a process! I have my good days and the day I slip up. @lilann1961, so are you!! @jayemes, go you! Virtual…
  • @aliciap0116, sending warm thoughts to your family. Those are HUGE accomplishments, it is very easy to turn to food during times of stress like that. @speyerj, thank you for the welcome back! I am excited to be back in this community. @lilann1961, welcome back! Love your goals, we can do this. @wanderinglight, beautiful…
  • @RavenStCloud, thank you for creating this space for us! Hi everyone! I know I have been absent the last two months on this wonderful thread, but I am hoping to be active again for September. SW: 272 CW: 240 GW: under 240 for September Summer was ROUGH for me, hence the dropping off forums for two months. I started…
