    Happy Monday. Fell off the wagon pretty hard the last couple weeks, weight back up to 192 this morning. Ready to get back into the groove. Joining a new gym this week, so a little nervous about that, but it is more like a real gym and not a social club like the Planet Fitness I just left.

    It happens to us all. Deep breath....and begin again. Enjoy the new gym!

    I am all too familiar with falling off the wagon.... nothing beats a failure but a try..... it really is impossible to fail if you do not quit.... I have been gaining and losing for over 15 years..... I know that is really bad, but what can I do but to try again? I can go to all the doctors who scare me and tell me I’m slowly killing myself.... I can talk to those who care about me and tell me hard things for me to swallow as well but real change doesn’t come until you make that decision in your mind, and you did! You caught it and you’re doing something about it so kudos to you! We can and we will do this!

    Hey Mike you'll be great. Just cause it's a "real" gym doesn't mean people won't be friendly and helpful. I find in this situations you find that more. You will find your spot

    Hi, 46, desperately wanting to lose weight and tone up, any advice on finding some motivation? I love food and hate the gym 🤔

    You don't have to go to the gym to lose weight. Just burn more calories than you eat. Lots of folks here have lost weight without intense exercise. Start logging your food every day. After a couple of weeks, you can look at your diary and start making changes to your food intake.

    Hey all. Happy rainy Monday from Alabama. Today is the day that I am starting (yet again) back on plan. I am thinking I will take baby steps and start with lazy keto. Would love to have new friends for sharing motivation and info. Have a good one.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all the Canadians. I need to get up and start cooking. I've done lots of prep already.

    Two more days and I get my surgery. In two days I'll be at the hospital getting ready. Eek.

    The big day is almost here. We will be here cheering you on while you're on the road to recovery.
    I hope you have a great Thanksgiving. Eat all the goodies!

    Hi! I am new on this forums (not to MFP). I would like to add accountability friends. In the past, like 5 years ago, you could do a search with people that had a similar journey to yours (Pounds to lose, age, etc...) is that still around?
    What would be a good place to start?
    Guidance will be greatly appreciated! :smile:

    We were just debating whether to keep the boy home from school That day. He's really sensitive and I worry he might be upset at school. He's used to his grandparents having surgeries but it's different with mom
