    Hi, I'm Diana. Just starting out here. I've lost weight this year due to some food sensitivity, and it took awhile to realize I'm having a dairy sensitivity. So I've lost 30 pounds this year, and as it's come off, I'm noticing I'm flabby. I want to tone up. I want to get healthier. I'm in my 40s, so I really didn't know where to start, and after I joined a gym a month ago, I met a trainer who helped me create a 4-6 week routine (I go 4 days a week - 2 days are focused on upper body, and 2 are lower body), and she introduced me to the Myfitness Pal app.

    So I'm on day 4 of this app, and I love it! I really enjoy having the app tell me what I need to watch out for - the whole "your sodium (or carb or whatever) goal today is... ".

    Hoping to read more inspiring stories like the ones I've seen so far. It's nice to have a community where we're all in this for the same reasons/ goals.

    Hello! Back on here for better accountability. California is pretty much shut down again so will be trying to do better at home workouts and get out and ride my bike more. Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy out there!

    Hey! So excited to be involved in a community of people to motivate each other and lift one another up! :)

    Back to the grind again. It has been years since I have logged food. Had success in the past, but once I had my son, took a break. Did keto for a while -- had success. But looking to adopt a more sustainable lifestyle. So, back to the basics: CI vs CO.

    Looking forward to being a part of this community -- hopefully getting and giving motivation to others.
    Feel free to add me as a friend so that we can build one another up! :)

    Hi Everyone. It is nice to be back on MFP. I am trying to lose 5 kg. Being over 55 it seems so hard to shed kilos. Hopefully with motivation from fellow members I can achieve my goal.

    I'm new to this group. I am going in for a revision on Dec 21. I'm going from a sleeve to a bypass. I had a sleeve in 2012. I drove to TX from Nashville for the surgery. I had no post treatment or anything. At that time I was on YouTube getting my advice and instruction. I lost 50 pounds, never met goal. I was 200# when I started my liver shrinking diet Monday. I am starting at 200. My goal weight is 150. I am 67 years old and looking forward to doing things right this time. I am already missing sweets, and cakes, puddings and fried chicken, etc. I am thinking these things are gone for good. I have to find healthier ways to make dishes that really taste good. I do not want to go back to doing things that made me gain weight in the first place. I received a can of cookies yesterday from my office and I haven't touched one and they look and smell great! Also doing great on my pre-op diet. Some evenings I'm not even hungry. I wish everyone on here well and sucessful!

    I been on a diet since May and i lost 88 pounds, on my own with no help or working out. Eating high protein counting calories, i do alot of green tea, protein shakes and i have a greek yougurt everyday. I went from 317 to 230, i am 6ft 3. Im almost there! I got 15 pounds left. You can do it, just stick with it. I fast sometimes, its hard but yoy can do it.

    I'm due to turn 40 in 2 months, my weight has been going up over the past few years with my health going in the opposite direction.

    Looking to make a change now rather than waiting and saying i'll do something next year.

    Will need some help staying on the right track, have made efforts in the past and ended up giving up after a few weeks at most.

    I'm from Doncaster in the UK, looking for a support network to help me achieve... please feel free to add as a friend, regardless of location.

    Take care and stay safe.

    Hello everyone im new here. I'm checking things out.
  • darlenep3darlenep3 Member, Premium Posts: 3 Member Member, Premium Posts: 3 Member
    Hi All, I just signed up 4 days ago for premium and I have my fit bit synced. I gained so much weight from lack of exercise, eating too much to often and eating the wrong foods. I can make all the excuses in the world i.e. I quit smoking, my medication, I can not work out because of medical issues. These might all be contributing factors, but I quite smoking 4 years ago, my medication does cause weight gain, I am limited physically because of an injury but I can still walk. After taking all this into consideration, I have decided to be the best version of myself I can be. this version will be much lighter, happier, healthier, and have more energy.
