How do you verify the weight loss?

For all official weigh-ins, you'll be prompted to submit your official starting weight. Our standard weigh-in process involves you submitting 2 photos: one of you standing on a scale in lightweight clothing (no shoes, hats, belts, watches, coats, or outerwear), and another of the scale’s readout with your weigh-in word written on a piece of paper.

What you'll need

  • A scale (preferably digital)
  • A digital camera or smartphone
  • A full-length mirror or someone to take your photo

With all of the challenges we have going on throughout the next few weeks, it may be hard for some of you to get those steps in. Maybe it's the poor weather outside or the desk job that keeps you saddled for most of the day that prevents you from logging some steps.

Let's talk about all of the various ways you can get steps in without intentional exercise.

Here are a few of mine:

1. Walk or jog in place while you're watching some TV.

2. Be as inefficient as possible. Even if I can bring in all of the groceries or other items in one trip, I still break it up in to multiple.

3. When I am cleaning, I focus on one thing (like dusting for example) and do the whole house. Then go back and do the next thing.

4. The laundry area is right outside our bedroom. When it is time to fold clothes, I take one item out at a time. Fold it. And then put it away. Time consuming, yes. But the steps add up.

5. We have a recycle bin in our kitchen, but I usually will walk out whatever I'm trying to recycle out to the bigger bin out in the garage.

Again, all of these things may not seem like a lot. But when you combine little things like this throughout the day, those steps really do start to add up.

What are some of your favorite ways to get in extra steps on those days when you just can't get outside?

It doesn’t need to sync with any app. I just need screenshots of steps for the specified date of challenge. Any electronic device works.

How do you do the 10,000 steps/day validation? I’m making that a goal, but curious how this challenge works?

  • Tough day living in body numbing, brain fog but somehow managed my 10,000 steps. At least Maggie was happy to have me lying around. I really hope tomorrow is better because I miss the gym!

  • My #nevermissamonday is being missed! StrokeBrain was in full force today when I woke up, so no driving. I hate it when my hands and feet feel like they are on novacaine! Hoping to get to gym tonight, otherwise I will get my steps with a dance party for one.

One week down, three weeks to go!

I had a rough weekend food-wise. My husband and I got last minute tickets to the Army v Navy football game in Philadelphia. My husband graduated from West Point and had a 22 year career in the Army. So, obviously, we were happy with the result. However, food options at the stadium were less than desirable. And it was FREEZING! I'm not a coffee drinker so I had two cups of hot chocolate just to try and stay warm. Each one was 450 calories! Oh my. I don't like to drink calories. And just the thought of consuming 900 calories on just two cups of hot chocolate makes me want to cry. I won't even mention the food options. At least I got up to log a six mile run before 6:00 am.

But you know what? It's one day. Does that one day define the outcome of this challenge? NO. Did it define my day on Sunday? NO. Did I decide to skip my workout today? NO. When you have a day that is just beyond your control, you just move on and immediately get back on track. So that's what I did.

How was your weekend? And what food are you planning for the week ahead?

PS - Go Army! #threepeat

I’m traveling for work today and returning Wednesday so I’ll be looking for seafood and veggie options since I can’t meal prep. I’ll meal prep on Wed when I return for the remainder of the week.

My tip for getting water in - my water bottle is 20 ounces. I put 4 rubber bands on it towards the bottom. Every time I refill I move one up. It gives me a visual reminder to drink more (especially if midday I’m not 2 rubber bands up!!)
