    Hello! My name is Lifeshy and I am 40 years old. Attempting to get healthy and excited about enjoying the process!
    I have been only on this for 3 days now so very new to everything. Trying to follow the eating plan as best as I can and have been walking for an hour a day. Hoping to lose the weight Ive put on during covid lockdown and due to new medications. Feeling motivated! Hope I can keep up the forward motion.
    Wishing everyone success at meeting their goals whatever they may be!

    Hi-I'm looking for help with working with a dietitian who will work with somebody with a nonexistent budget.

    That's the trick... make it a long and healthy life and it will be the only last try you need. Best of luck and wishes for your success!

    Long time lurker, first-time poster... I've been on MFP on and off for a couple of months. I've been on the weight loss journey since 6th grade. For a brief moment, I was at my goal weight. I'm back at it again.

    Hey everyone. My name is Terry. I've struggled with my weight for ages now. This isn't my first go with My Fitness Pal, but it is the beginning of a lifelong relationship I suspect. I have had high blood pressure and sleep apnea for awhile due to my weight and inability to commit myself to a diet. I was told today that my blood sugar was a touch high at my last draw and had an A1C taken. It may all come back normal, I know, but diabetes does run in my family, so I'm going to presume this is the next thing. It's time to change my eating habits for real and lose some weight. My long-term goal is lifelong tracking of foods to help me keep tabs and make better choices. Short-term goal, let's make it a week tracking everything. I'd like to think this message will be from when I truly hit bottom; only improvement from here on out! Look forward to being a part of the community!

    Hi everyone. After losing loads of weight last summer when my gallbladder was really painful I've now lost the gallbladder and gained the weight and am the heaviest I've ever been :-( I've been a member before on here but never really made the most of it so here goes!

    Would love some friends from the UK!

    I’m 26, currently dealing with an ankle injury and trying to cut fast food down quite a bit. I’m currently 180 and I’m working to get to 160, mainly through diet and working out.

    This is a good opportunity to concentrate on cutting your calorie intake and work in exercise as your ankle gets better. Think in terms of 80% diet and 20% exercise. As you've already learned, relying on exercise too much can leave you stranded if injury or aging forces you onto the bench. You'll be surprised how much you can do by just tracking your calorie intake and shaving calories here and there. Good luck and now that you've started, never, ever quit! 👍👍

    Hi my name is Kylie (fitness insta is fitness.recoverz). I lost 120lbs in 2019, but developed hypotension and got diagnosed with Pots syndrome. So I plateaued hard and haven’t moved on the scale since. I’m working to get back into the swing of things and have dropped 6 lbs since I got back into it.
