    Back on the app after a long rest period, even longer on fitness. Starting a new fitness guided career and need to be at my best, its just logic, ya know? I am looking to plug into accountability partners and lock into a tight smaller group of like minds. If your serious about your health and body , let's toss ideas around.......

    I love the idea of smaller groups the community is really hard to navigate and no one ever really responds back to anything.

    Hi everyone, been on mfp since jan but only recently found the community area.

    First time in my life of tracking what i eat (and a massive eye opener it has been!) this after years of being told that what i fill my face with would catch up with me when i get older....turns out its true haha damn you metabolism (excuses i know) 🙄

    So far so good though and combined with exercise i have managed to shed over 7kg in a little over 4 weeks, which im super proud of and also a little surprised at too.

    Genuinely excited to progress more and to reap the benefits of choosing a healthier lifestlye.

    Feel free to add me as a friend, i can be someone to lean on, kick up the backside... im versatile 🤷😅 best of wishes to everyone going for their own goals ✌️

    New member here. Trying to get motivated to workout and eat right. Lots of life stresses at the moment so it makes it difficult. Any tips for getting the energy to get started, I'm all ears! Hopefully being a part of this community will help.

    Hello everyone, I'm a new premium member, I was on the app several years ago, but never really took it seriously. I've hit 50 and wow, time moves quicker but my body not so much any more. I want to get back in shape for health reasons and would like to be supported and support other in their journey.

    Question, can anyone share some wisdom on what is better to track? Carbs or calories? I was on a low carb diet and lost 20lbs, but the agency I was with is way to expensive and not very supportive. Now I'm going to try and do it more on my own and through this platform.

    Calories.
    When you are in a caloric deficit you’ll lose weight. Here is a link to a calorie calculator to help you try to find your range.

    I’ll send you a friend request to help motivate you along the way.
    Good luck!

    I've been hhere a while with stops and starts. I decided to get a mini bike this year and try starting over and the virus really scared me since I'm high risk. I now have a smart watch and S health by Samsung linked to MFP and haven't lost much weight yet but am seeing small changes and feeling encouraged.

    I'm loving this app! I've never calorie counted before but this seems to be working. Also its great how I can put in all the daily training and exercise 💪

    Hello all! I am working toward a healthier lifestyle through better food choices and more defined exercise. Though I walked consistently (5 - 7 days a week/averaging 2.5 miles daily) throughout 2020 I did not lose weight. Determined to lose weight in 2021! May we all end 2021 in better health.
