Just joining today - this looks like a group I can relate to. I started my journey last year in September when I hit 233+. I've been feeling around for something I could stick with and think I've got it. As of today, I'm at 212.4. It's been interesting and I've found that I am sensitive (not allergic) to grain carbs. If I eat whole grain anything or bread of any kind, I bloat... and I do mean bloat. I'm not trying to get extreme on this weight loss - 2 to 3 lbs a week will be just fine for me and I'll be ok with no loss for a week or two while my body adjusts to the new me... as long as I don't gain any back. I tend to weigh every day, but only log it once per week - usually on Monday or Tuesday. I'm using MFP to track my progress and figured I'd try to make some new friends along the way.
Good luck to everyone!

Been out walking 5-6 times a week all month. 28 miles this week. Mostly because I get bored at home. Monday is my last contract day with school, our kiddos finished up yesterday (optional online, so haven’t been hearing much from them lately). I’m super psyched right now because my husband and I fell in love with an apartment and just found out yesterday that they accepted our application. We’ve been commuting for 4 years now, and the new place will be 10-20 minutes from our jobs, not on a busy (read: loud) intersection, and we will finally have 2 bathrooms, a washer/dryer, and central air. It’s also 3rd floor with vaulted ceilings, wood burning fireplace, a window garden, and a deck.

Hi all! Just found this thread and thought I’d join too
27/F from a tiny town in Wyoming. I’ve been ignoring my health for years and basically eating whatever whenever and not thinking too much about it. Sure, I had tried dieting in the past, got bored or frustrated and went for a burger vowing to try again. I was bigger,I have always been bigger, but i thought it wasn’t affecting my life(I mean I was still active wasn’t I?)....Until I hopped on the scale and cried like a child. decided right then and there that something had to be done. Not for looks, but for my health. Neither one of my parents made it to 65 and the road I’m on wont allow me to make it there either. I have to change. I have to be better. So I started again, except this time I mean business.
One month in 15lbs down. Only like 100 and something left to lose 😝

I just did my first excerise routine and man that was hard. There were three things I couldn't do. They have a lower less impact version of the harder ones. I'll let you know when I can do it all. One was push ups which I can't do. It's a two week shred so by next week maybe I'll be able to actually be more fluient in the motions.

Alright back on track! Can’t wait to hit the 200s. Is tomorrow the day? 🧐
I did see a 4 mile walk today. Hamstring was tight again. Could be dehydration I just realized. Next walk I’m going to make sure to drink up before and during. When I got back I also did planks (6 minutes so far in June. I bumped my goal up to 70 minutes for the month so I’ll need to either have longer sessions or fewer rest days than I did in May). And I did some jump rope. I decided that my next goal is jump rope, not pushups or whatever else I was considering. I’m going for 10 minutes a day and 1 minute straight by the end of the month.
Whew. Long day is over! Will be back next Tuesday at least for my weekly check in.
