We will start Friday, March 1st. Fridays will be called Funday Friday. Friday will be our nutrition game day. Each day of the week will have a different theme. Ideally, we will all share ideas and those ideas will motivate each of us in ways we might not have thought of doing. Our sticky topic will be 'Health Challenge.' The days will have the following themes:
Menu Monday--what is on your menu? You can share just one meal or several. The idea is to think ahead and plan and perhaps we might want try one of those ideas that someone else does.
Tasty Tuesday: What is cooking? Share something you are making. You may even decide to share a recipe or link to something. Perhaps you are trying a new ingredient or using a fun kitchen gadget. The idea is to get us making healthy meals and share ideas.
Willpower Wednesday: Let's have will power today. Can we pass up an unhealthy treat? Can we decide to take a walk instead of nap? Celebrate that healthy choice today and let us know what you are doing.
Tip/Trick Thursday: This will be more of a nutrition/exercise information day. We will focus on one idea. There might be links to get more information or ideas on the topic.
Funday Friday: A nutritional related game
Substitution Saturday: Share a healthy substitution you made today.
Successful Sunday: Today we celebrate or successes. Tell us if you lost weight, clothes fit a better, you made some good choices, you met your exercise goal etc.

We can experiment with this plan in March and decide if we will continue it after the trial.

I have lost 6 this year. I did like this thread of accountability each week. It helped me stay focused on my weight loss goals. I wanted to be able to post a loss each week!

I have lost 4 so far this year. I think a thread separately like Meg is talking about in addition to the other Bev is talking about would be good.

I have lost 5.5 pounds this year, but haven't kept up with posting. I think we will go back to nutrition challenge and healthy eating threads.

Did any of us lose weight last year and keep it off? We have the monthly Goals and Resolutions (randomly without the S for some reason) threads but it doesn't seem like it's helping any of us with long term accountability.

I like the idea of a healthy eating board, but I also feel like even if it's not weekly, maybe we try a little more accountability with the weight side. We're doing State of the Stash, how about a State of the Scale?

It looks like lots of us didn't keep up. I guess I'm not doing well and that is the reason for not keeping up. I do plan to do better very soon. I might like more of a nutrition thread. Perhaps food/spice of week with info and input on how others use the item. Perhaps some links or recipes to try. Maybe even some of the spark recipes. Basically, a healthy eating thread (all sugary, fatty etc. items/recipe links banned!). Purely positive and healthy eating tips and ideas.

We will be trying something different, at least for January. Instead of a nutrition challenge, we will have a health challenge. To make things easier, we will start on Sunday, and run through Saturday for 4 weeks and see how it goes. On this thread we will keep our weekly results. There will be a challenge discussion thread for encouragement and discussion. Our exercise goal for each week will be to each exercise 200 minutes (that is less than 30 minutes per day). Choose your own exercise plan, it can be walk, run, bike, weights, jump rope, whatever suits you. The second part is to lose weight (set your own goal for that, but it should go down each week). Please copy and paste this chart as a reply to this thread, and edit your response to update (don't make a new post) and that will keep your results together.
