    Tuesday weigh in day. I didn't check in last week because my weight had gone up slightly, probably due to water retention because I ate something salty the night before. Well it triggered a binge (I'm addicted to salty things especially potato chips) but I'm back and hoping to NOT do that again. My weight this morning is 201, up from 198 but It could have been worse considering the crap I was stuffing my face with this past week. So glad for this thread it makes me want to be accountable :)

    Hi, everyone! I just found this thread!
    Age: 33 Height 5'7
    Highest weight 225
    Current Weight 213
    Goal Weight 150 then reassess.

    I am just starting to track with MFP and plan on trying to start running again (slow and barely half a mile right now but I used to be a distance runner prior to gaining weight) and do yoga. Is anyone on Instagram? I created a private account I am going to use to keep myself accountable and am looking for good follows to inspire me!

    I have gained 50lbs, so I am looking to loose 50lbs. Looking for friends that have similar goal. I find it helps to loose it together. If anyone is interested please add as friends. Hope you all have a awesome day

    Believe in yourselves!
    I started in January '20 and when I stepped on the scale today I had lost 50 pounds. It can be done, because I did it, even with a diet that is the opposite of "clean" and "healthy" and with almost no planned exercise. I'm not done with my weight loss (Now I get to start on the next 50) but I have double the energy, have lost ten inches off my waist, and feel so much better than I did in January.

    So I'm sticking with you all for the next fifty off, and I hope I can do it a little faster than five pounds a month now that I know what I'm doing. (I think?)

    24lb gone so far, 16 this go round.

    After a roller coaster of October (mostly with stress) and stalling on the scale, where I managed not to gain at least, I'm finally heading the right direction again both mentally and physically. Sometimes all you can do is be kind to yourself and try to maintain til you get in a better headspace to keep going. I had to pause to take care of other mental health things but made sure to at least try and maintain weight vs gain it. Hopefully back on track and better than before. Still no exercise added in so if i get off my tush and do sometihing perhaps I'll get more than a pound a week.

    Tuesday weigh in.
    201 last week.
    200.4 this week. It's going in the right direction again, that's something anyway.
    I'm hoping to start on the treadmill again this week. Wish me luck :)

    Hi everybody. I have been off this board for a little bit. I have broken through my plateau and hired a health coach to keep me on track. It has really been helping me learn about and watch my macros. It's also inspiring me to move more and start a workout routine.

    My short term goal is to enter the 170s before Christmas

    Hi everyone! So glad I found this forum. My current weight is 174 lb and I’m hoping to get down to 140.
  • Susanschwartz84Susanschwartz84 Member Posts: 5 Member Member Posts: 5 Member
    Hi guys! I just found this forum and love it! I started off at 310 pounds and lost 170. Then my dad passed and I put weight back on. I'm 178 pounds today and I'm 36 years old. My goal is to lose around 25 to 30 pounds and maintain my weight.
  • CrozifletteCroziflette Member Posts: 5 Member Member Posts: 5 Member

    I'd love to add you as friends so that we can support each other.

    Looking back over my yo-yo weight loss history, I have to go all the way back to Feb 2017 to see this low of a weight. NSV- I was going to the grocery store today and my hubby jokingly told me to get some jeans that fit. These jeans just came out of the dryer and they are falling off me! They were tight at one point this year where I was using a hack with a ponytail elastic to be able to “button” them.
