    Hi Y'all! Mid-50s, Florida, Tampa area, looking for virtual motivation to help with keeping up while my box is closed :(. Been eating too much junk the last week or two, due to CV lockdowns & dealing with home schooling & dull times. I work out at 5AM, so any early risers check in!

    I understand that feeling - "Nothing works for me". I sometimes felt the same way. I'm on my third year here. Lost about 45 pounds in the first nine months. Am currently down about 55 pounds from where I started. That is by far the longest time I have maintained any significant weight loss. Keep coming back here and checking in - the mutual support and encouragement is the best feature of MFP. You can do this!

    yes, challenging times right now. I think we are all learning to appreciate things we took for granted. I do hope that as a Country we learn some valuable lessons regarding health care and being prepared.

    I'm curious about the USA....are people still charged if they go to get a covid test? Have they waived those fees?

    I'm watching our local briefing and our city is putting up the homeless in hotels downtown. They're separating those who are positive for covid. We don't need this going through our less fortunate population and heck the hotels have no business anyway

    Morning all.

    I've literally been climbing the walls. My new climb is the main bedroom to spare bedroom traverse - it's about v3. The radiator is a very risky hold, so I've defined it to be out of bounds. The features are two doorways and the stairs which require some fun routes. Once in the spare bedroom, it's possible to extend the climb a little bit to the fireplace.

    That sounds like great fun!

    I'll try and video it next time - it may be this evening.

    On a slightly related note, I now need to find a good way of removing rubber from walls

    Hi I am Sterling 43. Looking for a few more friends for mutual support. I am kind of stuck in my weight loss so reduced my calories but muscle tone seems to be faded too.
    Feel free to add

    Hi, I set my profile up 51yo female, 96 kilos and 159cm. I specified that I walk 90 minutes a day which is around 11,000 steps. Myfitnesspal calculated my daily calories at 1675 calories. Question - am I supposed to eat this much (I am having around 1300) has the figure taken into account the walking I told it I would do? Also is there a weight loss projection graph. I would like to lose a kilo a week for the next 26 weeks. I know as I reduce it will slow done. Thanks

    Happy Friday Guys. Have a great weekend.
  • AliNouveauAliNouveau Member Posts: 34,870 Member Member Posts: 34,870 Member
    Hooray for Friday!!! Well I guess Fridays these days are pretty much like any other day really.

    I hope everyone is keeping busy and staying healthy. I'm excited to pick up a grocery order this weekend which includes yard waste bags so I'll get to start cleaning up my yard. Have a good one my middle aged friends

    Sunday is almost done. Tomorrow I start my first week of "working from home". Seems like 50ish isn't too old to learn new things.

    So it was a beautiful day here today and I decided to do some yard work. This included climbing up on a fence to prune a lilac tree and getting attacked by the raspberries. I'd say all in all a good day. I'll tackle more tomorrow. It's nice getting outside and getting some exercise wrestling with overgrown plants
  • mtaratootmtaratoot Member Posts: 2,852 Member Member Posts: 2,852 Member
    Don't prune any more lilacs until they bloom for the season. It can't be long, even up there. I have some lilacs that I should have cleaned up last year that will get done this year, but not for another month. They are FAT with buds; I can hardly wait. I miss my winter daphne; it died years ago.
