    Joining MFP. Always dabbled in eating healthy and exercising. Now that I'm getting older, I need to be a little more strategic about it. Looking forward to input and pointers on nutrition.

    I accidentally posted my "Intro" another place. So I copied here...
    Michael here... Looking forward to losing weight. I have been struggling with weight for some time and just had a shock. I have put it off and put it off and when I weighed myself the other day found I had jumped 10 pounds putting myself at 270lbs.

    I was an automotive mechanic for years and weight was always relatively okay. It was going up a little, I am almost 60 :# . 10 years ago I went from a physically active daily work routine to Service Writer (behind a counter) where I was just sitting mainly and my weight went ballistic. I watched it go up but over the last month it jumped 10 lbs.

    I am working on changing my eating habits and that's where I found MyFitnessPal. Maybe one could give me some guidance here as I care for my mother also and she is in love with the microwave. She insists on doing the cooking (microwaving lol). Are there any good microwave recipes websites out there?

    I joined planet fitness to help but have some bone issues so any suggestions there would be helpful. Sounds like things are going to be a long uphill climb but if I can find healthy recipes and some exercise routines that don't grind my bones, I will beat this overweight issue. God Willing.

    Hello, all, and Happy 2019! I've been lurking on and off for a few months. Finally switched from Calorie King to MFP. So much simpler and more user friendly. Enjoying keeping myself honest. lol Looking to lose 5 pounds....then 5 more...then 5 more...then 5 more. In other words, baby steps and small victories to add up to big ones. One day at a time method. ;) Wishing everyone here much success and happiness in the New Year.

    My name is Kerry, I live in Dubai and I have started MFP on the 1st January. Hoping to lose about 58 pounds. I have tried a million and one diets and never find one I can stick to. I didn't want to add anyone new until I knew if it was possible for me to stick to this one. I think I can o this :) (Hoping and praying).

    I still haven't figured out adding friends although a few have already added me which is great. If you are on this weight loss journey too and need some motivation then please add me and we can do it together :)

    Looking forward to meeting you all over time :)

    I'm new on this app, looking to become healthier. With age have gotten a little more "fluffy" than I'd like, LOL. Trying to increase physical activity, but limited by a recent 3rd degree sprained ankle(December 1st). I'm normally a lap swimmer, but can't get back to swimming until my ankle can handle the torque. Decided to start by increasing my "daily step count", and go on from there. I think having an app like this one will make me try harder to be accountable for my actions each day and give me a better idea what I am taking in calorie-wise because of recording everything I eat. Happy to be here!

    Hello community! I could really use some motivation in this new year. New year, new challenges ahead, and it's so hard to do it alone. I really don't have a support group, and everytime I complain about my weight or how I'm feeling, I'm not sure anyone is taking me seriously. I guess they see something that I'm not seeing myself!

    Hello All,

    Getting started. My goal is to eat healthier. Losing weight will be a bonus. Being healthier is the goal. 2018 was a rough year, bring it 2019.
