    Hi All,

    Hi all,
    First time on MFP, but I lost 20+ pounds 3 years ago. Recently I have gained 12 back. Community has always been helpful on my fitness journey, so I am hoping to find groups with similar interests for encouragement. I run some, quite slowly, and I am in my 50s so everything happens slower.

    New returning member, over 70 years old, female, still active, and I want to keep it that way. I have 30# to lose to my ideal weight. I do need more help this time, and commitment on my part.

    I just joined MFP for the first time as a young adult so I can easily track calories and exercise to lose weight and get stronger. I would love some support and tips to achieve my fitness goals!

    Hi everyone! Trying this out. I have found through the years, my mind/emotions and thoughts are either my enemy or what helps me be successful.

    I have been an emotional eater for most of my life. Getting a hold on that, by being forgiving to others and mostly myself is where I am the most successful with being healthy.

    Choosing to love myself in how others are to me has been a breakthrough.

    We can not change how people treat us BUT we can set boundaries for ourselves and be forgiving.

    Move towards a support system of people who are caring and not hurtful to you. Replacing those, who sometimes might be family members.

    With setting BOUNDARIES, you decide what comes to your heart.

    This has taken me years to learn. Still learning but have made huge success!

    Blessing to all of us for making a choice to break the hurtful pattern of turning to food for comfort.

    Over eating is not comfortable!

    Recognize our emotions and feelings while we are turning to food.

    Ask yourself...am I hurt? Am I angry? If this is true, and your not really hungry, walk away.

    Pet a pet, step outside and breathe etc.

    God Bless
