Not going to lie I’m doing terribly. I initially lost 4 lbs of water weight. And gained it all back. It is that time of the month soon but I am struggling to sleep and that makes me overeat. Anyone struggle with stress and insomnia and have suggestions to prevent late night eating? Could really use the help!! 🙏

I always will have flavor soda water, spoon of peanut butter, hot tea take a sleep aid and that usually helps. Good luck


My biggest problem was always late night eating. I tried teas, veggies, etc and just could not stop it. Finally What I found really helped was taking about two weeks and going upstairs in my bedroom with a book at around 8. My hubby stepped in to get the kids to bed so I didn’t have to leave the room and be tempted to eat. Then I started eating a 50 cal halo bar right after dinner so I had my sweet treat and felt satisfied.
That is when I started seeing the weight fall off. Now I don’t want to eat at night anymore. I still try to go to bed early but when I don’t, I’m not tempted to eat. Also when I see my husband pull out the treats, I remind him that I don’t want them so please eat his and then put them away so they aren’t sitting out staring at me.

  • Made Buffalo Turkey meatballs- super easy & very good!
    2# 99/1 Turkey
    1/2 cup hot sauce
    1/2 garlic salt
    2 whole eggs
    Mix in bowl - I used a 1/8 measuring cup and a mini cupcake baking sheet, baked at 375 for 30 mins or until 165 degrees. YUM!

The husband and I went out to lunch. I did not make the best choices. I had chicken strip, French fries, ranch, and sweet tea. I am going to do my best to not beat my self up over it and get back on track with my next meal.

Make tons of cauliflower rice, roasted veg or veggie sticks and when bored munch on those. Celery sticks really do the trick for me — crunchy! I don’t do this at night though; at night I go for tea.


Pick me pick me. Haha. Keep busy with anything. Plus it might help to burn calories.

I’m excited to do this again. I should of been at 181 weight wise but not to give too much detail, I haven’t been able to use the bathroom. So I’m eating more foods with fiber to help. Hopefully this bloating will go away.

I hope it goes away! Bloating is so uncomfy


Drink more water. Dehydration is the worst!

I'm finishing up 80DO with A Little More Obsessed this week. I'm thinking of doing Megan Davies IG challenge to start Clean Week 1/4 and MBF 1/11.

Tiffany Q.

I am always nervous to start a program with this...I dont usually lose much weight with a program...but the inches and toning is always amazing!! Starting MBF today!

In the last game I failed, which I was v disappointed with because I got very close to my goal weight very fast, only to derail and actually gain more than I had started. Learning time and time again why drastic diets don’t work long term. Won’t be making the same mistake this time. Taking it slowly bit by bit week by week day by day.
Happy new year(‘s eve) to everybody and let’s slay this!!

I do that too Gia... you start to see success and then back track! So frustrating but the fact that you’re trying again is great! :heart:

I am losing weight when I am adding more greens and veggies. Reducing carbs in last days helps also. Hope Ilana will give some helpful tips for us

  • Hi, I’m Jackie, I’m very excited to be here and looking for motivation to get me through the next four weeks. I have gained an excessive amount of weight in the past 5 years and I am at rock bottom. I’m so uncomfortable that I don’t enjoy getting dressed anymore. I hate that I keep buying bigger clothes and still growing out of them. I’m done!! So anyone who can help I’m ready. Just ordered Publix with lots of veggies and lean meats to start off strong tomorrow. Can’t wait to wake up and start. Happy New Years to all.
