• Hi - if you have tried to donate and found that it hasn't worked please can you hit me up in PM? (Freya) I am trying to figure out with paypal what the issue is and they are asking for more data. It doesn't seem to be affecting everyone. Thank you so much :)
  • Hi - It is possible that I have figured out part of the problem with the donations. I believe that if you try to use paypal balance or your debit/credit card that should work now. Bank transfer still seems glitchy. If you try with a card and it fails please can you let me know? Fingers crossed that part is resolved though. Thanks so much for the support - Freya

Hey @Petal thanks for starting this thread. Healthy eating went out the window over the holidays. I've still got lots of naughty food in the house so I'm not going to start until Monday when I go back to work. Once I start I'd like to lose 4-5 pounds before the end of January.

As for longer term goals for the year, I'd like all the ones you mentioned; I want to lose weight and tone my stomach so that I'm able to wear a swimsuit in the summer without getting too self conscious and I want to eat healthier so that I have glowing skin and shiny hair.

I think healthy eating went out the window for everyone in the last few weeks lol

4-5lbs is totally do-able. Stick to whatever goals you have in mind and forget about the scales until the end of the month. My nurse is going to weigh me at the end of every month and i have so much motivation right now its unreal and i say that because i know you can do it too,

You'll rock in that swimsuit, you have plenty of time to make sure that happens. Wishing you the best of luck. When you want to give in, think of the shiny hair, teeth and skin. After what I saw you do over a 90 day period, i know you can do this more than anyone else i can think of.

Best of luck.

Thanks Petal. Getting into that swimsuit is going to be the thing that motivates me. I don't know if I'll even get a holiday again this year, but if I manage to sell the house and pay the debt off then I may be able to treat myself.

It's brilliant to have something to motivate you :) I hope you can get a holiday this year and unwind from life of work and stress :) Wish you the best & always here for you to spur you on.

I am definitely working on weight loss. I do not yet have any particular end goal in sight, I am doing weekly weigh-ins to make sure I am moving in the right direction. In addition to the fitness thread, I am working on my diet. Simple mindfulness is already going a long way. I am realizing I may have never before made a conscious effort to eat square meals, limit mindless snacking, and shun empty calories.

I have managed to reach my goal of 2018: losing 12 lbs.
By the end of this year I would like to cut off another 6 lbs. So should be easier perhaps, but I don't really know because I am very close to the BMI i was trying to achieve.

For January my aim is 1lbs. Let's see how we go *happyno
Great achievement in 2018! Good luck for this month and the year, 1 pound sounds like a good goal for January if you are closing in on the BMI you want.

Like others have said, December was a bad month, terribly bad in fact! Too many takeaways (sometimes twice in a day), too many big dinners and too many meals in restaurants. Too much food and drink in general. That all stops now. As of yesterday, the house has been emptied of food so I'll go shopping later today and pick up some bits for the house in preparation for a healthier month. My goal is to lose 4-6 lbs in January and I'm confident that with support from here I will make it. Let's have it 2019, I'm ready for ya

Hey Petal, thank you for the tag, my son's goal is to lose 10 k by April and mine is to stop smoking, try not to put on too much weight whilst quitting and avoid major flare ups by gently exercising more. Also my Border Collie Isaac is getting older and needs gentle exercise so it's for him too. Waiting for scales to arrive from Amazon

Day 31 yesterday: day 2 of no cigs, we walked twice around the village, 36 mins, around two miles.

Isaac the dog also walked twice around with my daughter and spanner
