I'm good with an accountability check-in on Sundays. I have a different workout program that I complete that also includes yoga, VR Super Natural workouts, snow side-walk shoveling (LOL!), and personal trainer time. I think each person should write out what works for them and then hold themselves accountable on our Sunday posts. Did I TRULY make 10K steps for six days? Maybe not, but how many days did I reach my goal? We want this to be positive and uplifting as opposed to listing out what I did not get done. :) Being kind to ourselves is the utmost importance!

So perhaps my routine could look something like this:

Sunday - Rest day

Monday Goal - 15 min treadmill, Body Groove Dancing 30 min, 15 min yoga stretch, mindful meditation

Tuesday Goal - 15 min treadmill, Personal Trainer (1 hour), 35 min treadmill, mindful meditation

Wednesday Goal - 10 min Les Mills upper body stretch, 30 min VR workout, Svelte workout, mindful meditation

Thursday Goal - 15 min treadmill, Personal Trainer (1 hour), 35 min treadmill, mindful meditation

Friday Goal - 15 min yoga stretch, Body Groove Dancing 30 min, QiQuong Yoga, mindful meditation

Saturday Goal - 30 min bike, Body Groove Dancing 30 min, 10 min Les Mills upper body stretch, mindful meditation

Each one of us will have a different plan for what we want to accomplish, and we can check in on Sunday and review what we were able to get accomplished! :)

Love that!

I have been using the 1stPhorm app. you can track food and exercise with it. My apple watch reports to it for steps and what not. And they have a bunch of workout plans, you can choose a program and it will give you a daily workout. I have really enjoyed it.

Hey August Buddies! I'm looking to see if anyone is interested in being an Exercise Accountability Buddy. I have been exercising but not enough to be consistent, and I need more motivation. Does anyone have the FitBit app and might want to try sharing fitness and exercise plans?

I don't have a smart watch yet but I think I'm getting one for Christmas. Meanwhile, is it possible to set up a small group for those of us here that are willing to share in some way?

Hi everyone!

Do any of you add Protein Powder to your coffee? I drink a few cups of Decaf a day, but I know I haven't been getting in as much Protein as I should. I don't really want to drink the coffee Protein Shakes because of the amount of caffeine in them. I want to find a protein powder that dissolves well in coffee, but I don't know where to start.

Also, does anyone else have a problem drinking Water? I used to love water, but since the surgery it hurts my stomach and sits like a rock unless it's flavored water.

I drink my protein with my coffee everyday. I love my cold brew so that is what I mix it with.

I use the Level-1 Meal Replacement shakes from here... https://1stphorm.com/collections/protein

They actually taste amazing too.

And yeah, I used to drink a gallon a day, ad now I can't. I don't really like flavored water too much either, so I just do the best I can.

I definitely need to start exercising more, and I have a fitbit, but I lost my charger. I was walking outside, but not that it's getting a lot colder and slippery at times, I plan to rejoin a gym. I'm just finishing up my final assignments at university, which are all due next weekend.

However, I don't know if I'll have the time to work out five times a week. Walking outside is easy, but going to the gym takes time. I pretty much just have the time from when I finish work until my son needs to be picked up or comes home. Some days that's an hour, some days only half an hour or less. I definitely don't have the time to work out with a trainer, but I plan to have a trainer I know create a plan for me that I can follow on my own.

In other news, I had my hair cut to shoulder length today. My hair looks thicker, but I think I look worse. Not necessarily older, but worse. At least, it will take some time getting used to. Maybe I'll look better after I've lost more weight. If not, the hair will hopefully grow back.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.
