Like Isou yesterday, I'm posting this now because of work and school tomorrow morning.
Please reply to this post on TUESDAY to join the weigh-in. Thank you
I think this is the first time there has been a Tuesday weigh-in, and its my first time posting one. I like weighing in on a Tuesday, as I always feel like I need that extra day after the weekend!
We hope that you've all had a good week and are pleased with the results on the scales. If this isn't the case, don't get despondent, weight loss isn't linear and we're all human. Think of where things may have slipped a little. If you're convinced that you've had a squeaky clean week, then take out the tape measure and see if you've lost inches instead. If that fails to satisfy too, then look back to the beginning of your journey and be proud of how far you've come. Progress may be slow, but if you keep the faith and stick to plan, you'll eventually get the results you've been wanting
Our aim today, is to support and encourage, so we ask that everyone responds to at least ONE other member, ideally the person directly ahead of you on the thread. The main aim of this new weigh-in, is to prevent one person being burdened with answering every single post. Of course you can respond to as many posts as you wish, but it should be a minimum of one.
We have also decided to introduce a new stats system, again to reduce the workload of one person having to produce a spreadsheet every week. If you could now state your weight today, how much weight you've lost/gained/maintained this week and your goals for the week ahead. Other than that, feel free to share any details of your week that you like.
If you are joining this weigh-in group thread for the first time today, then please introduce yourself and share your starting weight (if you feel comfortable doing so) and your initial weight loss goals – setting yourself mini-goals leading to your ultimate weight loss goal, is particularly helpful.
You could also make a note of your body measurements. Sometimes the scales stick at a particular weight, but there can be body measurement changes which are very motivating. It’s not all about the scales after all – it’s how you feel in yourself. If you have a look in your profile section, you will see there is a space there to record your progress, if you so wish.
If you’ve not already seen it, then take a moment to read the ‘Welcome Newbie’ pack, which is a Pinned post (situated on the right hand side of the homepage, or scroll right down to the bottom, if you're using a mobile).
I'm going to weigh in tomorrow, so will catch up with you all then. I have enjoyed getting back to a more regular routine since going back to work on Thursday last week, and the kids being back at school. I find it so much easier to eat well and plan meals properly when my day has that structure, and I eat dinner earlier which I’m sure is better for me. Fingers crossed for all of us!
Please only use this thread if you're weighing on Tuesday 10th January.
Onwards and downwards!
