Hey guys! So trying to find satisfying snacks and breakfast ideas that won’t break the bank. If anyone has some great low fat high protein breakfast ideas that are not sweet!! I could use some inspiration. Also snacks. But some sweet snacks are ok. Today I’m eating freeze dried strawberries. Jerky is my go to, but like, so much sodium.

Seeing my dietitian on Tuesday. I’m suppose to come prepared with things, but I’m drawing a blank! Help me help me!!!

Been dealing with such bad depression recently. And the hits keep on coming. I’m suppose to be back at it today. So I’m looking for easy. It’s so hard to get out of bed right now, and my job is being super understanding….. so the 16 hour days are kind of killing me right now. So….. not super worried about cost for the time being. I just need simple and satisfying. And maybe a leave of absence from work.

I usually don’t eat breakfast, but for snack I have any and all fruits if I want a sweet. For savory maybe a 100 calorie nut pack. For a crunchy, nutritious, (some) protein snack I air fry a can of chick peas with different spice mixes (could be Chinese five spice, taco, salt and pepper or whatever you like). Note the can is usually 3.5 servings.
Or frozen, in the shell edamame is good steamed and salted since you eat them somewhat slowly bc of the shells.
Or cucumber, celery, or red pepper with hummus or guacamole. Hope this helps…gotta go get a snack now (:

Plain Greek yogurt with a bit of fruit

Within 1 pound of goal, I'm going to execute a big brain plan... Get a haircut! 😁

And also eat clean + low sodium and get some walking in. Good luck to everyone in these last couple days for round 2!

I’m on the struggle bus. I took a vacation the first week of May and had a great time, but I went off program and basically haven’t lost any weight since before that trip. Starting to seriously worry about this upcoming weigh in.

I am right there with you, and we have a holiday cookout this weekend. But I am determined to stick to it and lose weight. I think it is okay to miss a round goal, but I just need to make sure it doesn't turn into me letting go of the big picture. We can do this!

Katherine M.

I’m right there with you, too! I was starting to feel discouraged and could see I was giving up (I’ve been on a very long plateau and then started gaining), so I reinvigorated myself yesterday by signing up for the Mayo Clinic Diet. Something new to help structure my diet, exercise, and healthy choices. I like the emphasis on long-term change, building healthy habits and breaking bad habits. Not sure I’ll make it this month, but I like the reminder that the big payout is at the end. That’s why I signed up for 6 months after doing a Kickstarter! Good luck everyone!

My parents visited last night and old eating habits flipped on without me even realizing it when my mom brought out dessert. Sigh.

Today is a new day and still think I'll make goal this week. One small decision at a time!

Hey guys,

Since we are in this together for six month, I thought it might be fun to share some fun info about ourself’s.

Maybe where you’re from? I’ve seen someone from Italy and another from Germany. Personally, I’m from California, USA so was impressed by the global representation!

Or maybe why are you on your weight loss journey? For me, I got fit two plus years ago but then let it slide with COVID and let it spiral when my parents got sick. I’m ready to get back to fit! Like my macros coach says: “FIT is hard! FAT is hard! Choose your hard!”

Lastly, what’s your weight loss strategy? Mine is counting macros and weight lifting with some cardio sprinkled in.

Good morning! I’m from Columbus Ohio. Go Bucks!
I discovered I was a type two diabetic in October of last year. I have been on a fitness journey since then.
I had gained 40 pounds since losing my mother several years ago. Yes, I eat my feelings. :disappointed:
I found that diet bet keeps me accountable. My concern is Maintaining now that I am almost at my goal weight.
Since I am a diabetic I do almost no carbs or sugar. Proteins vegetables and fruit consist of most my diet.


Hi. I'm from Colorado. I've literally lost and gained hundreds of pounds over the years. I've never mastered keeping it off. I retire to Alaska in two years and become a Grandma for the first time in four months. I want to be able to truly enjoy all the kayaking, hiking, fishing, and playing with grandkids that I have planned for my next twenty five years.

It's about health and longevity. I'm hoping this is the motivation that sticks!

I'm tracking calories in Fitness Pal and weighing in daily. These two things have always helped me succeed. Daily accountability. When those slip, so do I.

Not doing much exercise right now while I rest my Achilles, but my weight loss has always been tied to the table, not exercise.

But I am looking forward to getting back at the daily walks and some weights.

Good luck everyone!

You can probably email and ask. They're pretty responsive and helpful!

Jenn and Kandice

If the other game offers to re use it then you can. Otherwise go onto the other game and see if it is still requesting you weigh in, if it is unfortunately you'll need to weigh in again.
