Hello! I used to weigh 350, I lost 42 pounds, then had a gastric bypass...I got down to 183, and over the past year have creeped back up to 209.5. My goal weight is 163. I have a new grandbaby on the way...and I want to be healthy enough to all kinds of things with him or her. I am new (again) to MFP. I'd like some friends here for encouragement (and to give support). I look forward to getting to know you all.

I’ll get the weight check in started this Sunday.
Start date 6/27/20
So I lost 2lbs so far in the last 30 days. My daily calorie goals were initially set at 1700 and I am not eating back calories from exercise. My PT lowered my calorie goal to 1500 after 2.5 weeks with no loss. I actually only hit 1700 on 3 days. That was too much food for me. So currently I am working on 1500 with a 35, 35, 30 split for protein, carbs, and fat. I have a hard time reaching my protein goal (130g) so that is my primary focus right now. I have no problem staying at 1500 and usually end up in the 1300-1400 range unless I eat again before bed. I am strength training using body weight and bands 3 times a week and will be doing cardio 3 times a week.
I am keeping unhealthy foods out of the house. A good NSV for me is lower blood sugar levels with increased exercise and lower carb levels <130g daily. My fasting bs levels have been consistently 85-98 the past month!! So I will be doing my best to sticking with the plan even when the scale doesn’t always go down. The weight trending app is going to help a lot with that I think. I hope all of you ladies have a great Sunday! I am off to get my workouts in.

Sorry, I'm a little late checking in. As you know I just started My Fitness Pal on Thursday the 24th.
I'm not really great at keeping myself accountable by recording my daily weight. I'll work on that. I hadn't weghed myself since Thursday.; but good news!! I am down from Thursday until today 3 lbs. 245 to 242! Thanks for your detailed check in Jill, and congratulations on your weight loss.🤗 It's all very inspiring!! Great job Ellen.😊 You are also very detailed in your post. I can see I have some work to do. Yesterday I went for a 40 minute walk and today I got some weights. So I'm ready to move!

Hi can I join too? I sound more like sherim1963 same height & always battled weight but it was a hell of a lot easier than now.
I had my kids quite late & despite weight falling off due to hyperemesis I still ended up 4 stone over with each. Almost got to my goal inbetween & then after 2nd as I required corrective surgery but that had complications & I piled weight on during a fairly immobie 5 month (instead of 1 month) recovery. Started too loose & train again- then fell at school & broke arm, turned out also torn & shredded tendon on rotator cuff but it didn't really show up making diagnosis difficult, less exercise then off again post surgery. Again almost at goal & perimenopause started- weight crept on, I tried & got disheartened so would give up then start again.
I've got a lot of my shoulder mobility back. I struggle with backpain & muscles not firing evenly due to car accident & compensating- thus learning bad "muscle memory" habits. So plodding on with gym.
Currently trying to loose lockdown stone so my work clothes fit- then I want about 3 more stone off my Christmas.
Just altered diet on advice of personal trainer at gym ( they reopened yesterday in UK but could do outdoor PT 1:1 since end of May).
With you on the higher protein.
I've got between 80-90lb to loose

I like how you’ve committed yourself to working out by walking. Walking is one of my favorite forms of exercise. It’s gentle on your joints and it’s so good for you. On rainy, or snowy days, I watch Leslie Sansone walking workouts on YouTube. She’s great. 👍
We’re so glad you’ve joined us on this journey!

Hi Grandory. It is great to meet you. There are a few of us here that are in the same situation as you with needing to lose weight again. I agree with Jill walking is excellent and easy on the body. I have 4 grandchildren also!!! They will help keep you moving 😀.
