Hello Everyone! Welcome to the Check-In! Let's make it a great month!

I want to welcome everyone to the Daily Accountability Check-In. Our goal is to stay accountable and on track by posting our daily food and exercise choices. All food and exercise programs are welcome. Consistency is the key to reaching our weight loss goals.

Introduce yourself or jump right in and tell us what you have been doing.

Here's to the start of a great month!

Default Day 1

this is Day 1 for me, just meal planning and getting the kitchen ready.

Goals for the month: lose 1-2 lbs per week. Run with run club. Track all cals and $ daily.

I lost my way when I couldn't get a grasp on my goals- my medium term goal is to run 5k again, lots and for fun! and to attend my aunt's Nov wedding in a size 14 dress (1-2 sizes down). It would be FAB to have to have it altered but I'll settle for having it zip up!

Wedding is at West Point, full military- so excited!

Good Morning and Happy August Everyone!

Last night I was trying to come up with a reward for myself if I reach this month's goal (129.9) and the first thing that came to mind was chocolate cake. But then I remembered I can eat chocolate cake now if I wanted to (as long as I stay within my daily calories) and decided to make an appointment to get my spider veins taken care of instead. Win-win!

today's weight: 135.9 (down .4)
yesterday's calories: 1,175
yesterday's exercise: 1 hour at the gym doing various cardio machines, approx. 450 c. burn

Good morning! yesterday I was at goal with 1600 calories, and a 30 minute walk with the puppy.

I just got back from our walk for today. I have work today, so that should make staying within goal easier. yesterday was more difficult because I was home all day.

I'm new here but happy to have found a support group I can be accountable to. Originally I started out at 220 got down to 140 and felt great, kept it off for two years. Then my daughter moved back home and my good eating went to pot :-( so here I am starting back again needing to lose these aweful 40 lbs.

Thanks Shelflife. I have a salad bar at work to which I add exciting gourmet ingredients brought from home that I spend too many hours identifying and buying on the internet.

It's all about keeping my salads exciting and continuously striving to making them better for me.

Watch soon for picked quails eggs, picked garlic and canned (yes canned) scallops.
