Default New Year, Next Step, Fresh Start-January 2019 Daily Check-In & Accountability Thread

everyone!


Welcome to the January 2019 weigh-in/check-in thread. In honor of Rennie's return to posting I decided to borrow her title from an earlier thread as it's so very fitting. The big holidays are behind us and a brand new year is upon on us. How will 2019 be different from 2018? Are you a resolution person? A goal setter? Do you have some unfinished business that you want to complete? Or do you just like the idea of having the opportunity to begin again? Whatever your starting point, know that this thread is a place to chat, vent, and meet some great people along the way. This is a great "neighborhood" and we're always excited to have new people move in and get comfortable. Here, you will find generous support and encouragement so please take the leap and join us!

EVERYONE's

Here you can:
~track your weight daily, weekly or however you'd like ... but do check in
~keep track of what you eat or didn't eat
~keep track of your water intake or lack of
~keep track of your exercise/other goals
~vent, rant ... express yourself or just chit-chat

We can and will ALL get closer to our goals AND hit them together

Hope to see you soon and once again, Happy New Year

Gettinfit:Welcome to the thread! Settle in and make yourself at home

Iíve got a bit of water retention on board from starting some strengthening exercises yesterday. While the bump was expected, itís still messing with my mind a little bit. Onward and downward!

Wishing you all and your families a very happy and healthy New Year!

everyone!

You're all very welcome; I'm happy to keep the thread going and setting it up every month. I've had various levels of success in the years I've been posting here and I recognized early on that this thread was filled with supportive posters. I know lots of others feel/felt the same. Rennie had put so much time setting it up and responding to folks that I didn't want to see it end.

Not a lot to report today. Technically, I'm still on break but came in to attend my health and wellness class. While I saw a low of 205 several days ago my weight was 206.6 today. It's a number I've seen on and off over the break so I've been able to maintain and I'm content with that.

Wishing everyone a good day!

Happy new year ladies! I have been absent many months and a lot has happened, but it's about time I check in here and get careful about my weight again.

I'm preggers, yay, in my second trimester. During the first trimester I got hyperemesis and lost 10 lbs in 2 weeks (went from 152 to 142), which was really scary. However after getting medicine to treat it, I responded really well and was able to eat again. I gained back the 10 lbs (plus 2), so I'm hanging out at 154 right now (1/2/) And am off the meds, the severe vomiting has ceased!

Obviously I am not trying to lose weight now, but because I am at risk of developing gestational diabetes again, and also have limitations on exercise b/c of some pregnancy complications, I feel like I now have to be much more mindful of my food intake than I have been when I was in "regain" mode to gain back the 10 lbs I lost due to being so sick. Clearly that was (too) successful.

The doctor has suggested a total weight gain of 15 lbs over the course of the pregnancy is healthy, so my goal for the next several months is to limit the weight gain to 13 lbs. I plan to check in here at least weekly if not more, so that I keep myself accountable in meeting this goal.

Good luck to everyone in meeting their goals in 2019!

jazzfan22 it's nice to see you again and congratulations on your pregnancy! Wishing you success in controlling your weight gain during the next few months. I have a coworker who is struggling to put on weight during her pregnancy. And yet she eats so much. High metabolism and all.

curvynotlumpy maintaining during the Holidays is a big win. Are they adding new tasks (I don't think that's the right word for it) in the health and wellness class every week? Like building a foundation for a healthier life one step at a time.

GettinFit welcome to this thread and happy for you that you have been on plan and exercising. Each day becomes its own small victory.

RunningRedHead I had seen your December results in the previous thread and was amazed at how you managed to get into a new decade during the Holidays. What kind of strength training have you started doing? Wishing you another great month to start the year.

VickieLou great to see you.

I have started 2019 with an initial goal to just get a grip. So my first two goals are to eat on plan and drink more water for two weeks. That's usually how long it takes me to settle back into a routine. So far I”ve eaten healthy the first two days of this new year but I've not drank enough water (goal is 2 litres per day). My next goal will be reducing my portions at supper time. But for that I need to eat more throughout the day because I feel ravenous by the end of the day. I just don't stop at work to drink or eat a healthy snack, I have to change my ways. And I hope to get back into exercising after these initial couple of weeks of focusing on my eating. I am struggling again with sleep maintenance insomnia, sleeping 4-5 hours, then waking up, then taking 2 hours to fall back asleep. So I am tired most of the time but I'm hoping that by eating better I will find a bit more energy to get back to working out, which hopefully will also lead to better sleep.

Good morning everyone

Curvynotlumpy Ė Congrats on maintaining your weight over your break! That is an awesome accomplishment. Unfortunately, I am now working on losing what Iíve gained since my last WW weigh in at the end of Nov. I so regret not sticking closer to my plan. You are a great example!

Jazzfan Ė Congratulations on your pregnancy.

Martine Ė Great job on 2 days OP and on setting your goals and sticking to it.

Hi VickieLou and RunningRedHead and anyone else I've missed.

All is good with me. Iím starting day 3 and I am determined to make this my year to successfully reach my goal. Now my main reason for taking this journey is for my health. I am taking two B/P meds and my dr told me if I lose 50 pounds, I should be able to come off the meds. I am sick and tired of starting and restarting my journey so this is it!!! The problem I have is that I am a junk food addict and once I starting eating it, I just cannot stop and end up binging. I have challenged myself to stay away for junk food for now and to avoid any binges.

I hope we all have success on our journeys.

Hi all, I'd like to join if you don't mind! I have been a member here since 2009 but I have been gone for a while and unfortunately gained quite a bit of weight in that time. My goals are to stay within my calories (1,850-1,950 a day for now), drink 64+ oz of water per day (I will hopefully work my way up to a gallon a day eventually), and get 10,000 steps a day. I will eventually start working out 3 days a week as well. I am starting out at 227 which is my highest weight ever. I weigh on Fridays and hope to lose 5 lbs a month.

SW: 227.0
GW: 222.0

fashinjunkie09 welcome to this thread. Your goals to start the year sound within your reach and achievable, which is the first rule in goal-setting. Wishing you success on your journey.

GettinFit I too want to lose weight to improve my health before I have to start taking medication. Especially since diabetes and heart problems run in my family. And I too am a junk food addict but I find that after a couple of weeks of not eating any, I don't miss it and just enjoy healthy foods a lot more. One simple rule that works for me: no junk food gets in the house. You can't eat it if it's not there. And I always have healthy snacks on hand for when I get the munchies (mostly fruit, yogourt, nuts). You can work throught this junk food addiction, just take it one day at a time.

Another on-plan day in the books food-wise, but I barely drank 250ml of water yesterday. We just learned that David's shoulder surgery will be on the 31st. I will take a week off to help him get used to having his right arm completely immobilized. I just hope that he will handle the pain well and that after months of physiotherapy, he'll have normal use of his right arm again. I know he won't be able to do anything for 2-3 weeks, so I'm mentally bracing for having to do all the grocery shopping and cooking and chores during that time. Meal-prepping here I come.
