    How do we add people?
  • Longing4MauiLonging4Maui Posts: 42Member Member Posts: 42Member Member
    @chefbender5310 You should be able to click on blue hyperlink to their ‘name’ which opens a window, then click on blue hyperlink name again which opens second window where you can then click on the icon for person + which should send a request to the person. I just tried again, and it is not working for me, get to clicking on person + icon and nothing happens. So maybe a glitch today. Seems this app has glitches quite often and in a few days it all works again. Good luck

    After you click their name and get to the screen that says send message-click their name above that-you can then send friend request or message. Just sent you request.

    @kjaispuro -I usually do meal prep on weekends and reheat during the week, but it's just me. Try to preplan with some things you can cook quickly or reheat.

    @AbandondedKSCharger -good to have you back. You had a very rough July--let's hope for a much better August.

    @KCJen -glad my schools days are just memory!

    @Longing4Maui - I agree we just have to do it. I think we hit spells where it is harder than others, but keep taking the steps you can. Maybe you should eat at maintenance for a week or two.

    I need to post in here more - I really need the support of a "community" since no one in my family is interested in weight loss.

    Got all the back-to-school shopping done on Friday!! Now to clean house, laundry, and prep for a job interview!!

    Oh and of course, drink my water!!! (I have been slacking in my water intake) :(

    @ginnytez Graduation is in December, I am sooo excited. Rebuilding my life from my divorce has been a long road, however, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. The best is yet to come!!

    @KCJen - good deal! (and meeting your water quota will help!)

    I've been busy too & haven't been on this group for a while, @kjaispuro I'm unusual in that I cook in the late mornings after my dog walk. When I worked full time, I worked the swing shift on purpose so I can still have my mornings. I'm too tired to cook in the evenings. I now work part time in mornings so on those days, I don't cook. I'll cook enough for left overs the day before. I know this doesn't help. My mom cooked in the morning too for the 4 of us. I would often wake up to the smell of cooking

    I’m planning to eat this way for the rest of my life. Lost 15 inches in 8 weeks. Just adjusted my macros up to .5 lb loss a week so I am less hungry and the plan is sustainable. I stay off the scale. I judge my progress by the clothes I can a) now squeeze into, and a few weeks later, can comfortably wear. Every 8 weeks I’ll measure again. I love the plan I use and I can eat this way forever. Feeling pretty optimistic. So inspired by everyone here who lost 20 - 40 pounds. If you did it once you can do it again. I am learning from your experience not to stop what works!

    What are people making for dinner? that is when I struggle the most, after a long work day when I am tired and the kids and I are hungry...

    I agree. Planning ahead is my biggest....well, second biggest challenge.

    Hi everyone, so I am in another group and I have realized once I become "disqualified" I stop logging on to post in groups. I need to stop this, as I really need the support that I can find on here because no one in my family is interested in weight loss.

    Today's goal is to finish this week's homework for my class and drink my water.

    Happy Thursday!!

    My thoughts for UAC....log in anytime to report....

    I have found I must do it from a computer and not my App
  • ginnytezginnytez Posts: 289Member, Premium Member Posts: 289Member, Premium Member
    I agree. Primarily use app for food entry. Can also read forums from it fairly well.

    Well, my goal I set in January, to loose 3 pounds per month, hasn't gone very well. However, I feel I am still making progress and I am focused in the right direction.
    My plan was to be at 182 by the end of August. Today I weighed in at 191.
    Wednesday night yoga classes begin again this week.
    I will also continue to get bike riding completed each day.

    I have been waiting to “start” my treadmill schedule again. Life gets in the way and each passing week had its reasons why I couldn’t “start” that week. A lightbulb went off when I read this quote “If you are waiting for the perfect time, you will be waiting forever”. Another article this morning I read said that the most common excuse people give for not exercising is “lack of time”. So, I am already running behind on time for my schedule for today, but I am going to get on the treadmill and work this into my daily routine again. Being healthy and having a healthy lifestyle is extremely important to me. I am on my way to a better life : )

    Hi,
    I'm starting again after a long break from MFP.

    I would like friends that have similar stats to me.

    My amount to lose is 40kg/88lb
    Start weight: 120kg/265lb
    Age: 39
    Female.

    If you are motivated as well and would like some support and will give some back then please drop me a friend request. Please don't friend request me if you are trying to sell something.

    Thanks :D

    Jen it's so good to see your Chief's logo again!!! After just going home (San Diego) for vacation, it pulls on my heart strings still for the Chargers....but getting my Chief's vibe back again....seeing your post helps!
    @MySlimGoals Welcome to our small group...…...the more the merrier though. We all need support.
    I did find myself staying UNDER my budget of calories yesterday WITHOUT the exercise whoot-whoot!!
    Hope everyone has a great Tuesday! Let's make new routines that include healthy living.....exercise, meal planning.

    QUESTION - I have a 1,200 calories limit per day but when I workout additional calories are added that I can use per day........ Use them? or not use them? 1,200 is hard to stick to, I am basically eating fish and vegetables and unfortunately I know I won't be able to stick with it for long if I don't have a beer/wine every once in awhile, my guilty pleasure, but there are just not enough calories in a day to spare.....
  • AbandondedKSChargerAbandondedKSCharger Posts: 551Member Member Posts: 551Member Member
    @cmcgill1984 That's a great question, and I'm sure there are a variety of answers. My thoughts are it is up to each individual. I complete my diary without the exercise first to see what my 5 week prediction is, then I add in my exercise and complete it the second time. Yes, a 1200 diet is hard to maintain. My goal, is to stay within my calories and have the exercise calories be "extra". But I'm a ways off from that, currently they help way too much.
