2020 Welcome Noobs to MFP

    Hello all!! I'm new here too. I started on 9-16 and also started working with a personal trainer on that same day. Since I've started I have lost 15 lbs and about 4-5 inches overall. I will say the workouts seem to be easier to me than the calorie counting. I LOVE FOOD!! I'm getting the hang of MFP, slowly. I started adding everything I eat as a brand new food, it is more time consuming, but I feel, for me, it is more accurate than trying to find the right foods on the searches.
    Hoping to get lots of inspiration and motivation from all of you.

    Have a great night!!

    Hi everyone! I’ve been using MFP for a while but pretty spotty in actually tracking - gotten serious about it now. Have over 100 pounds to lose and definitely looking for more friends on here! :smile:

    Hello, I am not great at using boards, but I am giving it a try. I guess what I have learned in my first week is to be aware of what I am putting into my body and learning to live with the decisions I make. The most telling part is realizing that I do not need as many calories as I thought I did and feel satisfied with the food I am consuming. I am learning to designate when i am hungry and when what my body is telling me it needs is hydration. It is good to be in control of something in this age of the pandemic.

    Hi all. I’ve been trying this since 6th Oct & have lost 6.5 lbs. I feel that’s a little slow as I wanted to lose 2lb a week. However, I’m always hungry. I’m drinking and have started jogging now, but trying to stick to 2000 calories is really hard as what I’m having isn’t filling me up.

    I can only eat peanuts & pistachios & they’re quite fatty I understand. I stick to 5%fat mean unless I’m having steak. And rarely eat anything fried. It’s snacks that get me.

    Today I have had
    Cereal with semi skimmed milk fir breakfast.

    3 rice cakes with sardines for lunch
    A coffee & 4 sugar free cookies

    Dinner was twice cooked chips, boiled and roasted with fry light spray, and S slimming world curry.

    I had a scoop of ice cream and some crisps and dip as a treat. However I am famished. I feel like I could eat a full breakfast. It’s so frustrating.

    Please advise.

    Hi everyone. This is probably the 10th time I have downloaded this MFP app. So here we go again! I need exercise friends. I need someone to hold me accountable and go for a walk with me or go to the gym. I live in Benton Arkansas. Roughly 315 lbs. I have a 1.5 year old son that I HAVE to get healthy for. I’m an emotional and bored eater.
