  • Introductions & Week 2, Task #1

    Posted by Maximilian Blochberger-Claus on January 18, 2022 at 4:54 am

    I’m Max, I live in good-ol’ Germany and a bit about myself…I like science, mostly chemistry, nature and experimenting, so it’s no surprise that I ended up as a trained chemical lab assistant! I worked 5 years in R&D at a big, big chemical company and while I enjoy lab work, I was very unhappy with my job overall, so I left and pursued nutrition instead. You will see why this is hilarious in a second…Apart from that I very much enjoy bad puns, games (video or board or cards) and reading.

    So, my goal for this challenge is…to lose a bunch of weight! Very boring, very simple goal, not necessarily easy, but it is what it is.

    Success metrics:

    1. 20kg of weight lost
    2. OR body fat percentage <26%
    3. OR waist circumference <95cm


    Well, as embarassing as it is, I actually finished my degree in clinical nutrition in last october and trying to work as a clinical nutritionist while being overweight is, to put it bluntly, fucking embarassing. This is no way to be. It impacts my everyday experience very negatively and I actually avoid the topic of my educational background etc. as much as possible. So, this NEEDS to change. It is time to show up for myself.

    Max, I see that other people post their goals in the discussion of the 90 day challenge group. Maybe you should post there too.

      Whoopsie, you are absolutely right. It probably won’t hurt to have our goals posted here in the team to get things going and see where everyone’s at but if I want those points I should post in the general challenge group. Thanks for letting me know!

        Of course it doesn’t hurt! But for you to get your point maybe matters 😀

      I think I’m confused, I also posted in this discussion tab. What’s the difference between this discussion tab and the 90 day challenge group? I thought that’s where I was…

        Hey Jesse, this discussion tab is our very own Team 48ers tab, where we can basically discuss inertnally. Anything related to the official weekly tasks, e.g. this weeks task, needs to be posted in the Impact 90 discussion tab if you want to be awarded points. There was a little bit of confusion due to the original wording, which simply said ‘to post in the group discussion tab’. It should have said ‘post in the Impact 90 discussion tab’. Amy and Ambra were made aware of the issue and clarified the wording, so this issue shouldn’t come up again.

    I like your goal I think it’s very specific.
