Smile Welcome!

Hello Mamabear!! Nice to see ya again!

Welcome Stillhopeful!! Glad to have ya!
Basically, this thread is a place for you to check in, gain support, and stay motivated!! On our last thread, we would all post our progress on sunday of every week.
You can post everyday or every week if you want....or WHENEVER you want! You can set "mini goals" for yourself for each month, you can post how you are feeling..if u are staying on track or not (don't worry, there will always be someone to give ya a nice swift kick to get ya going again!), you can post your accomplishments....anything! Or just stay in with the convo that usually goes on w/in these challenges!
There's no right or wrong way to do a challenge. Just jump right in!!
I lost 11lbs from our last challenge "30lbs by May"...didn't quite make it to the challenge goal, but that's alright...I'm gonna keep on trucking!!

Does anyone have anything else to add to help Hopeful??

My goals for this challenge:
  • Get back on track again!!! Stop being lazy!
  • Drink more water, try to get up to 2 34oz bottles a day
  • walk at least 4x a week
  • Get back to the gym in the mornings
  • Remember to take my vitamins

30lbs is what I have left to reach my goal weight, so I'll join the fun. It'll give me some badly needed motivation.

My starting weight is 177.
Today I exercise biked 6.37 miles and did 5 minutes with 2lb handweights.
My goal is 127, which is 50 lbs away. But until then, we'll work on this challenge.

LET'S GO! I know we can do this!!!
