And I watch my weight.
I'm gonna be as thin
As the proverbial pin.
If you come along
And sing my song
You can be skinny
Like Mickey and Minnie.
Don't eat no cakes
And other fresh bakes.
They're much too dodgy
And you'll get podgy.
Eat some salad,
And dance to my ballad
Then I think
That you will shrink!
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. This is a bare minimum, though and we'd love to see everyone, with their pom poms, cheering as many people as they wish, on as many days as they like
It would make things so much easier for us, if you could 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.
Last week I weighed 230 lbs, this week I weigh 230lb! that's a maintain , which as we all know, is better than a gain!
My weight loss is slow, usually 1-2lbs a week, but generally only a pound a week during the winter months which is ok by me.
If you're joining this weigh-in group 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’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).
