    @cgrout78, thanks for sharing. I've never taken medications before, and this one has me nervous. Which makes sense in an ironic way. I'm anxious about taking an anti-anxiety drug.

    @mtaratoot, I didn't know about the Cheese Sticks rule for pms, but it makes total sense.

    Hahaha the cheese sticks made me giggle!!

    Happy Monday all, if there is such a thing...! It's 11am and on my 4th coffee... sigh.

    Good morning everyone! It's Monday and my day started at 4am because I had to take my partner to the airport 😴.

    I'm hoping to add some new friends, I need to the motivation to stick to logging my meals. I'd like to lose about 25 pounds by summer. (I can't wait for summer!)

    There IS a way! Make sure it's a day off. A four-ten schedule is civilized. It's one less day to commute... well, it used to be in the before times. Three days off is almost like a vacation every week. Highly recommended. I wasn't sure I'd be able to do it at first, but I'm glad now.

    The next best option is 4/5 nine. Nine hour days four days a week, one eight-hour day every other week where the weekday officially begins halfway through the eight hour day (four hours assigned to each week).

    Hey hey. Any tips and trick on detoxing? What type of fruits or veggies you add to your water that helps? Add me if any wants too

    Hello! I'm Aimee. 47 year old (in March) military wife and mother of two adult children. I'm merely on Day 3 of being on MyFitnessPal and checking out the various features of Premium while its Free. I've never EVER been a calorie counter, in fact I run from it (not literally) but so far I'm finding it to be not so difficult. Granted, I haven't eaten out yet either. For now, I'm logging food intake as normal to see how it comes out. The awareness alone has made me not pick up the chips and cookies. I have a sedentary desk job but walking around the large office space, I normally get in at the very least 6k steps a day. That's about the extent of my exercise though.

    I'm at the highest weight of my life and my goal is to lose somewhere around 30lbs, but moreover to adopt healthier habits. When I hit 40, my hormone levels went crazy and though my childbearing days are behind me, I'm on birth control to help level me in that aspect but of course not without the consequences of weight gain to go alongside. Fix one problem, create another eh?! Learning to adjust to the many new things that middle age brings with it.

    Feel free to add if you think the connection of shared interests or challenges would be beneficial to either of us.

    Good luck to all on your personal goals!

    ~Aimee

    New year and 12 days in I am feeling quite good, weight wise anyway. Have managed to shift 9lb so far so getting towards the 18st threshold which always seems to be a bit of a sticking point, hopefully this time I will get through it and keep on going.

    Welcome newbies, great to see lots of new faces. Best of luck on MFP, it's really quite easy, just log everything you eat and drink as best as you can (food scales are a must) and try to add a bit of exercise, a walk is fine!

    Feel free to send me a friend request :)

    And now....coffee!

    Rest day for me today. So I meditated this morning, and plan on taking a long walk this afternoon with my wife. It is supposed to be sunny and warm (for winter, that is) and I'm looking forward to putting on sunglasses for a change. I think I've lived under a cloud dome for the last 3 weeks.
  • LunaTheFatCatLunaTheFatCat Member Posts: 225 Member Member Posts: 225 Member
    Enjoy your walk and the sun! Muggy day here, it's been grey and rainy for days now. I couldn't go out for a walk but I've done these "walk from home" YouTube videos a few times this week and it's surprisingly enjoyable.

    Happy Hump Day everyone!
    Not lunchtime yet, but I'm feeling hungry this morning, I'll try to hold out for another hour, or the afternoon will be too long :(
