Smile April Weight Loss Challenge

This is a stressful time. Let's be creative about how we set our goals this month. If setting a numerical weight loss goal will help you, go for it. If not, here are some other ideas:
  • maintain weight
  • eat vegetables
  • pray or meditate
  • exercise (check out our Exercise Challenge thread)
  • check in with 3FC or some other mutual support space
  • practice good sleep routines
  • listen to relaxing music
  • limit news and/or social media consumption
Join the April Weight Loss Challenge to set your goal, track it, and meet it -- with the help of a supportive and encouraging group. All the goals will be compiled into a list. As each goal is met during the month, it gets turned RED in celebration.

Since I just slipped into Onederland, my goal is to stay below 200.

My scale is in kgs, so I'm looking for numbers that are 90.7 are lower.

Thanks for starting up April's thread gardenerjoy.

I managed to lose a little bit in March instead of gaining. I'd like to continue that momentum and build on it. As an introvert who likes spending a lot of time with just me and my husband, I'm not having a hard time with the quarantine, but /hugs to those who are struggling.

Hello everyone.

I can use the focus on weightloss right now. I need to be accountable.

I will check in tomorrow with my stats and my plan for the month.

Gardenerjoy thank you for setting this up

Default Getting out of the diet trap

I have began my weight-loss plan a few weeks back, it pays to remember this: You are not fat. You have fat. Losing weight isn't about blame or shame; it's simply another achievement to accomplish.

Self discipline and persistence to push through indeed plays a big role.

S/C/G: SW 195.7 / CW 193.3 / GW 128

Height: 157cm/5'2"

Default Hello!

I would love to join April's challenge. This year, in January, I reached my all-time high at 201lbs and it really took a toll on me. I have been feeling terrible and decided to start again from a place of self-love.

I will not set a goal weight as I have realized I just lose motivation by thinking of how far away I am. Instead of doing that, I will try to think of milestones to achieve.

Month Goal: <188.

Week 1
01: 195.7
02: 194.88
03: 194.22
04: 193.3

It is nice to be back in the forum. Thanks
