Default Get your glow on! May 2019 Daily Check-in & Accountability Thread

to the May 2019 daily weigh-in/check-in. ALL our welcome to this thread. Here you will find support, encouragement, and endless kindness.

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

As we are now into the second month of spring, it's a good time for an accountability check to see where we're at in terms of our progress. Sometimes it can take awhile to shake off the heaviness of winter especially if you live in a geography that still might see some very low temps or even snow . At some point what's happening outside will match with the calendar. Even if you haven't been able to fully embrace the season, what's on your progress bucket ? Do you want to get more and better sleep? Spend more time outside? Have cleaning and clutter projects you want to handle? Feed yourself better and healthier? Enjoy friends and family more? Whether you are just beginning your journey or are a long time traveler, let's use this month to our advantage to become healthier in mind, body and spirit. Whatever it is that will help you glow from the inside out let's make May memorable.

Good luck to all!

Curvy: I love your intro for the month and I think I am going to borrow one of the goals you mentioned and focus on improving my sleep this month as I have not been sleeping lately and I'm exhausted! Thank you for continuing the thread, best of luck this month!

April was far more productive than I anticipated it would be, a portion of which was due to some food poisoning I got two days before my friends wedding (a 6 lb drop in 24 hours is safe, right?). April ended with a bang and I can't wait to see what is in store for the month of May!! Best of luck to everyone as you continue to slay your goals!

Happy May 1! Good to see you Kayla and VickieLou Kayla, your goal for better sleep is an excellent one and one I struggle with as well. It's not so much good sleep as it is enough of it. I can only blame myself.

Accountability is my top priority for the month. I've been MIA on this thread for the last two months so one of my goals is to check in here at least 3 times per week. My health and wellness group is in phase three and we're only supposed to be meeting once per month. As our meetings gradually decreased my weight increased and I've cut too many corners and have gotten lazy with my good habits. Today the university where I work had a walking lunch hour and several of my group met up and walked a mile while discussing the challenges we've each experienced this month. I mentioned that I missed the accountability to the group and others agreed. I was pleasantly surprised to see an updated meeting schedule in my inbox late this afternoon from our leader; she carved out several additional times for us to meet. I'm very happy about this! I'm also making a concerted effort to handle my workload differently. I'll keep you posted as to my progress.

A wonderful evening to all.

curvynotlumpy thank you for keeping this thread going. I may not post as regularly as before but I check every day to see how everyone is doing. Glad to hear that your wellness group will have more meetings than originally planned this month. That support can make a lot of difference. Much success to you in getting a handle on your work load and sleep and getting back into a healthy routine.

runningredhead sorry to hear you had food poisoning at the end of April. Hope you were able to enjoy your friend's wedding nonetheless. Hope you continue to build on your great results as you get closer to Onederland.

After walking a lot the towards the end of last month, my right knee was becoming a real issue so I stopped altogether. As David said, I had to take care of it before it got so bad that I would need medical help. So I rested and iced my knee a lot and after a week, it feels normal again but still a bit fragile. I'm waiting a couple more days before getting back to walking, just to be safe. My goals remain the same this month: eat on plan, drink 2 litres of water per day and walk each day.

Im wishing everyone great success in May.

Good morning

I hope Saturday is off to a great start for everyone. Today we're doing senior portraits for our reentry students (+25) and their families. One of my colleagues does this for her unit of first-generation, low-income students and graciously invited us to participate. She hires a very talented student photographer who does outstanding work. We did this last year and the students were thrilled with the results. It will be a long but very satisfying day.

merilung: Never too late! with all your efforts this month!

Martine: So good to hear from you No explanations needed as you can see by how little I've checked in these last two months. Like you though, I am a constant lurker on the threads

imthegoddess, Kayla, and VickieLou

It's good to see so many of the regulars checking in; it's such a good way to be accountable even if it's just a fly-by and quick hello. As I mentioned in my previous post, I'm really working on finding areas where I can be more accountable and raise the bar for myself in my life.

Wishing everyone a wonderful day!

Hope everyone has been enjoying their weekend. The sun finally came out and it really warmed up today. I went for a walk this morning and Iím happy to report that my leg and knee were ok. I also drank 2 litres of water and ate on plan.

I couldíve been more active the rest of the day though. We just stayed in and watched movies/Netflix while I ran loads of laundry. First time this year hanging clothes out to dry, always a joy for me.

Wishing everyone a great start to the week.

5: 3.2 km walk

It will be a Summer-like day here. We went for a walk by the lake in the park this morning, as I work the afternoon/evening shift. It shows just how out of shape I am that just by walking, my heart rate goes up to 140bpm. If I stick with it, that number should improve.

5: 3.2km walk
6: 3.8km walk

Iím playing catch up, so bear with me

Curvy: It can be very difficult to remain accountable, especially in a setting where support meetings become more spaced out. I think itís so awesome that you have a walking lunch hour! I do this at work with a friend if sheís working, but mine is more to stay awake during nightshift I hear you on the issue not being quality sleep, but enough of it (I also have only myself to blame). This first week has had ups and downs in that regard, but itís definitely improving. Glad to hear your groupís leader made some extra times for your group to meet, thatís excellent news! I hope all went well with the senior portraits, what a wonderful idea

Martine: Sorry to hear your knee was giving you such trouble, but Iím glad to hear that itís getting better with some rest and ice!! Way to go on getting your walks in, thatís awesome!

Goddess, Merilung, & VickieLou: Welcome back!

Sorry for the spotty posting, my semester for orchestra was coming to an end last week and my summer courses just started up on Monday Things have been busy, I battled a cold throughout my friendís bridal shower and bachelorette weekend, but it was still a ton of fun regardless! In other news (bear with me, because in a way this is totally related to a weight-loss journey), I began online dating. If you had told me a year (or even six months ago) that I would be joining my generation in online dating, I probably would have laughed at you. I donít think my self-esteem and self-image couldíve handled it, but I think this whole journey has helped me get over that But let me tell you, Iím learning a lot (putting the crash in crash-course) and there are some veryÖ letís say ďinterestingĒ guys out there I hope everyone is having a fantastic week so far!

I have not yet been very active in the forum, but I notice that it is hard to stay on track and feel accountable. I really hope that keeping track here will help. My highest weight (around 20 years ago) was 301 lb. About 10 years ago I got down to about 235, but did not keep it off for long, and gradually went back up. My weight in June of 2018 was 287, and then I decided to try to make changes. This month on 1 May it was 278. It is not much progress for nearly one year, so I want to change this.

My goals for long term :
  • improve stamina and flexibility, be more active
  • improve health, reduce pain
  • achieve weight approximately 170 lb

My goals for this month :
  • stretch every day (now I do it just once in a while)
  • get better sleep
  • consistently stop eating by 8 pm (now achieve this about half the time)
  • learn how much is a sensible portion of each food
  • reduce weight from 278.0 to 268.0

1 : 278.0
2 : 276.6
3 : -
4 : 274.6
5 : 274.4
6 : -
7 : 275.4
8 : -
9 : 273.8
10 : 273.0
11 : 270.8
12 : -
13 : 269.8
14 : 270.0
15 : 269.6
16 : 268.6
17 : 269.2
18 : 267.8
19 : 268.6

Hello, didn't I say I'd be more active. Sorry, my current classes are wrapping up and work was crap last week. It seems I had to come home from work and do school work until around nine each night but yesterday. I'm going to get my hair colored and cut today then off to Costco. Then it's back to school work for me. I did find my missing Cize video, so I'm hoping to begin using it soon. Here's my news. I hit the 100's last week.Next week will mark one year since I went on this weight loss plan. I had my PA appointment yesterday and she always does my body composition. Here are the results. Weight lost: 88 pounds
Body fat percentage change: -20.9%
Fat weight change: -60.1%
Lean weight change: -27.9%
BMI change: -14.4

I just needed to share. I read everyone's post soon and reply.

Hello, I am new on here and posting half-way through the month. I am in the hope this is allowed.

Today starting fresh at 264 lbs. I am beginning my mini-goal for 25 lbs and hoping to reach around 240 in the next few months. I have fallen off with exercise and eating poorly again (I had gone down to 238 lbs and breathing better for daily ymca visits). Yesterday, I walked with my husband 2 and a half miles. It was a beautiful day here at close to 70 degrees F. Today cold again but still aiming to get out.

Daily accountability is a must for me right now. So for today's check-in:

SW-246
today weigh-in-246
exercise for last evening was a walk to the cemetary with hubby and our 3 baby chihuahuas.

I don't know many here but I am very glad to meet all of you. Hope to get a little more fluid with this by the day.

It's Mother's Day here in America and we plan to go out later to the local Mansion for tours (instead of buffet; kids and hubby haven't tried to treat this time. I love them for that!). So, Happy Mother's Day to all moms of two-legged creatures, four-legged creatures and any other babies you take your precious time and love to give to.
