I hope everyone is doing well so far! I hit my goal last round but had a "relapse" with fast food last week so now have some catching up to do. Does anyone else have what feels almost like an addiction to fast food? Any suggestions on what worked for you to cut it out for good? This week I meal prepped so am focused on staying on the right track, just don't want to go back to old habits.

You can also try buying the kid's size. Sometimes we just want the taste. Do be ashamed to get a happy meal...lol

When I'm craving something bad to eat, I always try to look up the calorie/nutrition info. It usually shocks me into skipping it, because OMG that fast food has an incredible amount of fat and calories!!

Does the payout for each round come out when each round is done or at the very end? Thanks!

Wow. I wish I’d known that. :joy: they’re making so much money being able to invest our money before giving it back to us. Just saying :joy: Motivation to keep winning for sure!!

I had made my goal last week with a couple Lbs extra but I’ve been on vacation this week at an All-Inclusive resort and I sabotage myself. Gained several Lbs back and didn’t make my goal weight after all!! 😩 Congratulations to all that meet your goal weight. Round 2 here I come!! 😊

It's hard to diet anytime, but nearly impossible when you're on vacation and everyone else is enjoying lots of great food!! You'll catch-up in no time and hit the Round 2 goal!!

Denise L.

Thanks everyone for the positive comments!! :blush:

Congrats to all the winners this round! And to those who didn't make the goal, it's a marathon not a sprint, and we still have 5 more months left! It's never too late to get started.

Wise words my friend! And if this a mental health race, keep up the work, it is worth it!

Beth

Thanks for the encouraging words!! There lots of time for everyone to catch up who didn't quite hit this first goal. Hang in there! We're all winners for caring enough about ourselves to commit to a 6 month improvement effort!!!

I weighed in and usually I would give myself a splurge day and eat everything I want. I’m feeling so good with all the exercise I’m doing and eating much less I don’t feel like I need to splurge. Changing the way I’m eating is making a huge difference in how I feel.

That's so great! I'm slowly learning that too...fast food doesn't feel like the reward it used to. The "reward" is just feeling genuinely better when I eat healthy and take better care of myself. Nice job!

Beth

Good for you!!!! A splurge can be a healthy treat too, like a fresh fruit you wouldn't normally buy. I'm indulging in fresh figs!! Congrats on your success!!

That's amazing! Congratulations

Colleen U.

Amanda that's so exciting!!! I haven't seen the number 1 in.....probably 8 to 10 years as well. I am 20 pounds away from that goal (hoping to end the six month challenge with this victory). Congratulations, that's such a huge, wonderful moment!!!

  • Weighed myself and no where near my first round goal 😭 but today I went 2.5 miles longer than yesterday In only 20 more minutes also! So that’s a #NSV even though losing weight would be a main goal I can’t focus on the negative

  • Although it made the scale go up, the cake from my 44th birthday was worth it!

Happy birthday!

Colleen U.

Happy birthday! This is great, the beauty of a lifestyle change is that you can have your cake (dessert) and eat it too! Just not everyday like I used to haha

  • Cutting it close for my weigh in weight, so I'm pushing myself this week! Three meals a day of whole, plant based meals, and daily kayaking or hiking. This 90 degree heat is going to test me, but I'm trying! Good luck to everyone this week, ya'll got this!!
