I’ll admit it. This challenge was a flop for me. My weight is right where it was when I started (which I know could be worse, I could have gained but still not losing = no success in this challenge). I feel disappointed the most for my teammate. For whatever reason I just couldn’t get checked-in. Pain was a big issue and I’ll admit that and also admit that there wasn’t anything I could do about it so as I’m taking steps to my new normal I refuse to beat myself up about it.
However, that doesn’t mean that I’m not going to work on changing it.
My work fridge is now stocked with healthy snacks to avoid trips to the vending machine.
My workout bag is packed to start working out on my lunch hour, even if its just walking on the treadmill.
I’m going to back to planning our meals for the week as I think the entire family suffers when I wait until 5pm to ask “what do you want for dinner?”
I downloaded the pushup app and myfitnesspal on my phone so I am determined to make this work. I will have guns by Disney and my skinny jeans will fit again.
While I won’t call the challenge a success, I’d call it a swift kick in the rear to make diet and exercise a priority in my new normal.

Same here. I didn’t lower the number on the scale. However, I agree with you in still making an effort, despite the results of the challenge.
if you’re able to learn from it and improve for the future then it does go into the “success”column
I can always count on your for words of wisdom! Thanks Brooke!
Ditto to what Brooke said. But the new normal may just include maintaining during the bad days/weeks/month. Having a plan is good though. ((hugs)) You are doing the best you can.
Thanks Kirsten! I need to understand that maintaining is a good thing too!
