Welcome to Mondays Weigh In!
Please do not reply to this post until Monday 26th March.
Pineapple27 here, co-ordinating the weigh-in post for today. I host the Monday Weigh In thread on a fortnightly basis.
The picture above is my greenhouse last year - I love it! It's spacious enough for me to sit and work at the benches, which makes gardening with a disability "doable". You can spot my little stool there warming in the sunshine. I'll come onto more about the garden later on in my post.
Whatever your results are on the scales today, please do share them with us if you would like to. We are here to support one another on our journeys; if you’ve fallen by the way side, there is always someone to offer a hand to help you back up, dust you down and get you back track. If you’ve had a loss this week, we all want to celebrate that with you!
With that in mind, we ask that everyone respond to at least one other member, ideally the person directly ahead of you on the thread. This is a bare minimum, so feel free to cheer on as many people as you wish, on as many days as you like! Nobody complains about a bit of praise!
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/plans for the week ahead.
Other than that, feel free to share any details of your week that you like.
This is how you report today's weight:
Last week I weighed ____, this week I weigh ____, that's a loss/gain/maintain of _____
(Add a few words about your week and your aim for the following week, any struggles you might be experiencing and any other useful tips that have helped you to have a successful week.
Welcome all Newbies! If you're joining this weigh-in group for the first time today – WELCOME!! Please introduce yourself and share your starting weight 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 this might help you in the future if you find the scales are not being kind. Sometimes loss shows as inches rather than pounds or kilograms. Keep that tape measure handy!
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).
What is planned this week? Well of course, I am sure we are all suffering slightly from that hour of sleep that we lost last night (those of us in the UK). Next weekend is Easter weekend, so it might help you to plan how you’re going to cope with the additional family gatherings, social occasions and… any chocolate eggs that may come your way?
My plan had been to go use the anti-gravity treadmill this morning. However, I have managed to injure one of my knees, so have had to re-arrange. Nothing serious, just a pulled or strained ligament which isn’t going to serve me for a fast 30 minute walk.
This week we have plans to visit some local garden centres to start buying and planting vegetable seeds. I LOVE the approaching Summer and love to spend time out in the garden as the weather permits. I am looking forward to regular threads about how we work out in our “green gym” here in the site.
Please share your plans for the week ahead. Anything that poses a threat or a challenge to your success?
Please only use this thread if you're weighing in on Monday 26th March 2018.
