    Howdy all. Anyone feel free to add me; not sure how to get much out of the community aspect here. I used MFP for a bit years ago, and it was fantastic. Now back for more.

    Hello! Like many others on here, I'm also coming back to MFP to track progress. I'm currently on Noom but finishing with it in about a month. I have the Joe Wicks app and so doing HIIT (with modifications to protect my knees!) five times a week. I want to incorporate walking and swimming from next week (when the swimming pools open) into my daily schedule and am still in the process of adjusting my calorie/macros for steady weight loss. IF seems to be working for me and I've lost almost a stone (14lbs) since end of February. Feel free to add me if any of this is of any interest! :)

    Hello MFP. I'm back after a long hiatus to get my healthy habits back in check. Pandemic stress got me down pretty bad and I feel I've gone from Superman to Endgame Thor (Spoiler). Gotta get it back. 2 Days in but open to rebuilding my support network as much of my list is no longer active. Turning 49 next week so goal is to be perfect by 50!

    Stubborn plateau weight, plus being in my 30s and am constantly surrounded by food (CARBS) at work is no fun !!!

    Hello everyone. I've been off and on here for about 5 years... Lost 15 before the holidays. Got a wonderful wife and three great boys. I'm 49 now and turn 50 in August. I'd love to drop 50 as I'm turning 50. Really gotten into Boxing over the last year. If anyone wants to friend up lemme know cause I want to be accountable.

    I just turned 50 last month. Would also like to lose 50 pounds, but finding it so hard!!

    Morning. I'm back for the, um, I've honestly lost track. I'd start with good intentions, but I like cake. I was okay with it, but I'm finding myself having a harder time doing the things I enjoy. So here I am, once again, ready to get my eating habits under control so I can get my life back.
    I miss my 20s where the weight would just fall off. Now I gain 20 pounds just swallowing my own spit. :(
    Anyway, I'm always looking for friends. Add me if you'd like.

    I feel that. I’m 38 and it’s like I gain weight just drinking water any more! Lol

    Lol...20 pounds just swallowing your own spit. I laugh but totally feel you!

    It’s important you keep coming back. Eventually the cake won’t pull as hard or the cake becomes a small piece that your exercise can manage. Keep moving forward.

    Hi Guys. Not sure if I qualify as 'late 30s', I'm 36 rapidly approaching 37, my weight has yo-yoed up and down by up to 100lbs for the last 10 years. Getting closer to middle age I'm more and more aware how hard it is to lose.

    2 weeks ago I finished my 2nd Ironman, and today is the end of the post Ironman binge and will be the high water mark for my weight this yo-yo cycle. From now on I'm going to be logging everything, every day and will hit my targets more often than not.

    Looking for accountability buddies.

    I'm new to the community but have been using the app for almost 2 months now. I started my weightloss journey about a year and a half ago now. I've lost just shy of 120 lbs and feel amazing. I started using the app when I stalled out for about 4 months. Ive lost 6 lbs since using this app. Its slower than before but its better than stopped! Feel free to add me and oh I'll be 43 this year.
