  • Do you agree with this weight loss tip?  Don’t exercise when you start a diet.  The idea is twofold: 1. Cutting calories can cause fatigue and you may be too tired to workout. Which can also lead to giving up altogether. 2. At the beginning of your weight loss plan, you should focus on your diet because it matters more. Putting all your energy into healthy eating, you set yourself up for quicker results and staying motivated longer.  What do you think?

I agree! I get too overwhelmed trying to tackle both diet and exercise at once. I do light exercise like walking but mostly focus on the diet now because I wasn’t super active before. Later I’ll up my workout intensity so that I don’t hit a plateau.

Laura B.

I completely agree! If you try and do too much at once then you are setting yourself up for failure.

  • How was your weekend?

    You're all doing so great! Keep up the great work and stay positive. We have a week to go and it's just one out of 6 weigh-ins. We're here for the marathon not a sprint.

    So, here's something fun. Share with us what you would chose - if you could pick just one! I know, it's tough!

    Can't wait to see what you would choose! (Don't forget to give others a like if they share your choice!)

Grrr! I was so close to my goal on Tuesday morning and now I'm up 3 pounds. How does that happen overnight? I'm watching my points, observing my IF, and exercising. So frustrating! I thought for sure I would reach my goal by Feb 1-2 and now it seems so far away. :( Sorry, just needed to vent to people who understand the challenges we face when trying to lose weight. Have a great day!

Same! I’m working to drink more water and cut back on salt more. Hoping it helps!

For me if I go back and look at my macronutrients I’ll find I had too much sodium.

  • Is anyone else following V-Shred? I am using their workouts and a custom meal plan and it's been working really well for me so far! This week's grocery haul!

doing a meal.plan from them. I used it last year before and during most of my pregnancy and it was great!

I was thinking about doing it. I see the ads all the time. How are the recipes? And do you get a lot of choices?

Sidelined with a hip issue (pinched nerve or hip bursitis?) so my cardio activity has taken a nose dive.

Waaaaaaaaah, no walking or cycling! Gentle yoga and light weights for upper body the remainder of the week.

Staying the course though, I will not use this to slide into my old habits. Sticking to keto and fasting.

Stay confident friends, don’t let hiccups derail your progress! You got this!

I started having hip pain with working out a few years ago. Pretty sure it's from all the jumping, etc. If it doesn't improve, try glucosamine chondroitin with msm. I literally would not be able to walk (without severe pain that is) if I wasn't taking it.
Hopefully it's temporary :pray:

Monica S.

I really appreciate your comment. I have osteonecrosis of my left hip so I can’t hit the treadmill or elliptical without pain. Gentle yoga is a great idea to stay moving! Hope you get well soon. Have a healthy and happy day!

If you don't hit the goal for a round does that mean your disqualified? Do you have to hit each goal every month in order to win the whole thing?

Thank you!

Megan there are payouts for each month along the way so it's in your best interest to make each official weigh in count. Good luck!

  • I just wanted to share a personal achievement... so I just found my fire again and the scale has been moving for the first time in a long time and for weeks I have been trying to get under 200 pounds and I finally did! And the best part is- I’m eating enough and eating well and exercising and drinking enough water and sleeping and feeling really good with myself!

Apparently today is ‘quitters day’, when a lot of people give up on New Years resolutions. So I just wanted to say: you can succeed, you can hit your goal! If you’re struggling today refocus on your goals and motivation, be kind to yourself, get moving and try your best to stick to your plan! You’ve made it over half way through January, keep going! You will do it!!
