    woke up to random rotator cuff pain this morning .... *kitten* this getting old crap!

    Yikes look after that.
    I totally know what rotator cuff issues are like and luckily as of a year ago it's a thing of the past

    Ali, the orthopedic specialist I saw ran a battery of tests and concluded the joint was too strong to warrant surgery. Sent me to do PT and although it has gotten better I believe in my core that there is something in there that isn't right.

    You should push to get it checked more

    Mine was sore for years and started giving out as I was doing push ups so I decided it was time to take action. I was sent to physio, 6 months later with no improvement I was sent for an ultrasound. I had to convince people it wasn't right because I had no tradition issues other than some pain. My range of motion was completely within the normal range even up to having surgery. The ultrasound showed a significant tear. I was sent for more physio and to see a sports dr. I tried the cortisone shot which did nothing and then got an MRI showing it was hanging on by a thread but I had good muscle tone which was why I could still function. When I had the surgery it was completely torn. I recovered pretty quickly cause I'm odd and heal quickly and now about a year out I have full range of normal motion and no pain!

    TL:dr you know your body best. If you think there's more the push for help

    Haha. I have several times been asked if I'm a university student. Being active is the fountain of youth. Oh and before my surgery I was told I'm young so a good candidate. I was like can you write that down So i can share it hahaha

    And autumn has well and truly started here. Cold, grey and drizzly rain. Meh. The trees are pretty though.

    I found out yesterday that I have high blood pressure. I kinda felt hard done by, as I'm living relatively healthy and I'm not overweight (even when I started back here I was at a BMI 26), so it's "not fair". Ordered myself a blood pressure monitor so I can keep track of it for a month or so. If it stays high I have to come back and get bloods done.

    I know how you feel. Checking every morning and I'm convinced my monitor is malfunctioning. Usually get a better reading when I check again 5 minutes later.

    Hi all! I'm a former user of this site (this is a new account I deleted my old one in a fit of stupidity), come back after a year+ long absence that resulted in me gaining back the 40ish pounds I lost and a few extra for good measure.

    I'm a 41 year old night shift worker in a grocery store so I don't really get to socialize much beyond coworkers and my household. So it's really nice to find a group of people in my age range with a common-ish goal! I look forward to getting to know you all!

    Morning everyone! Welcome (back) Cassandra and MissLithium, hope it'll go well for you.

    Now first, coffee... Busy day ahead of me by the looks of it.

    I think I should get my monitor on Friday, so I'll be keeping a check then. I really-really-really don't want to go the medicine route, so I'm hoping it's not that bad, as I honestly don't think I can make any further lifestyle changes to improve it.

    First time posting on this thread. Canadian living in Denmark and turning 49 this year. Was in very good shape until I had my second daughter at almost 46...yikes! Can't shed the 40ish pounds since then and it keeps going in the wrong direction. Back again here to try and take control. Wishing everyone a good day!

    Kudos to you for having a baby at 46💕💕
    I had one at 40 and was the same way - the weight has been a bugger to lose ever since.
    Welcome to the group 🤗

    A baby at 46! Wow fair play to you.
    How do you find Denmark? I work for a very large Danish company, they're global. Danes can be a strange bunch at times but I like them.

    Denmark is a lot of getting used to, especially the language. My husband is a Dane. We've been married 7 years and still find him strange :)

    Hello! I am not new to MyFitnessPal, but I am 37 and have been on a weight loss journey since October of 2018. I have lost 93 lbs.

    Fantastic!!! What's brought you here? More accountability to loose the last bit?
    I'm on the same trend. I'm down 55 and I am back to MFP for tracking and accountability. Need to really dial in these last 30-35 pounds

    I am here to meet people with the same goals and just help anyone that may need some motivation or ideas for Low calorie dense high volume foods. I follow the be good most of the time rule.
