    I gained 20 lbs during the last 2 years, so time to do something. I am trying out the 16-8 program. Eating no breakfast, lunch between 11 and 12 and dinner before it gets dark - between 5 & 6. But still have to keep track of food and calories. I started at 190 and hope when I way on Friday I will have come down. I do find I am not really hungry.

    Fasting really worked for me, still a ways to go but it works. I really like OMAD, the simplicity of it. Dunno might switch back to 18:6 after a while. I hope all goes well with your goals.

    Hello Everyone - I am new to this app and community. I am 54 years young and have been working out and exercising since I was 12. I was recently introduced to this app by a friend and I like being able to track my diet, exercises and steps.

    In my youth I focused on body building seeking size, mass and definition. At one point I tipped the scales at 260 lbs. Then I learned from my doctor that while I had size and strength and looked in great shape my health really was not where it needed to be. My blood pressure was high and all my metabolic tests were off. I was unhealthy.

    It was a wake up call to change my approach to fitness. Since then I have focused on a balanced exercise and fitness program, combining jogging, resistance training and martial arts. I workout 8 times per week over 5 days. Yes there a few “two-a-days” in there when I workout in the morning and train in martial arts in the evening. I live a very active lifestyle.

    I lost all of the weight years ago and have consistently weighed 195 lbs at 13% body fat. I am in the best health of my life my blood pressure is maintained at 120/64 on average, my metabolics are in perfect ranges and my resting heart rate is 54 bpm.

    Looking forward to hearing what others are doing and meeting folks with similar interest in fitness.

    Hello! I've been on MFP for a bit but never joined the community. I'm quite introverted and was used to CalorieCount until My Fitness Pal acquired it. I'm here to be healthy. Ever since I reached my healthy point, I must find peace with my IBS, gluten and lactose intolerance as well as incapability to digest red meat. I'm a vegan, btw. :)

    Hello! My name is Heather, I'm 53 and currently live in Washington state. I have been approved to start the process that leads up to bariatric surgery, and this app was recommended to help me track my food over the next six months. I have to lose a minimum of 15lbs by December in order to have the surgery. 3 days in, and so far, so good. I need to lose about 200lbs overall. I don't want to be a Victoria's Secret model or anything; I just want to have less pain and be able to take walks and ride a bicycle again!

    I have lived on the 18:6 fasting program for the past 20 years. You definitely get used to it and it helps keep my weight right where I want it. I do have a cheat day each week on Saturday where breakfast is on the agenda. We also follow the Mediterranean diet. Eating fresh fruits, vegetables and proteins.

    Looks like I don’t have a master list of my posts and comments- it’ll be like water under a bridge.

    I'm not totally new - I've had an account before, but I'm pretty inconsistent when it comes to being mindful regarding food and exercise. I'm back on as I've lost 20 pounds since October (cutting out fast food mostly as well as limiting snacking), but have hit a plateau. I really need to start prioritizing exercise and eating meals that are both healthy and filling. Please feel free to add me! I find having friends on here holds me a little more accountable LOL.

    Hi Everyone, I started using this app some time ago but never stuck to it. Now I have decided to commit to it as each year the weight just creeps up a little bit further and I am fed up with it.
    I am hoping being part of the community will provide me with inspiration and keep me accountable.
