Seems like lots of us have knee issues. I try to exercise without twisting or jumping since it hurts my knees and then my knee makes popping sounds. Not cool.

Hi all, do you mind if I join in?
I'm 55 years old, 1.54m tall (just a shade over 5 foot) and I currently weigh 93.4kg (206lbs) - my BMI is 39.4.
Five years ago I got to 60kg (132 lbs) using MFP, but in the intervening 5 years I've gained all the weight back.
This time I'm hoping to get to 54kg (119lbs) , which is a BMI of 22.8. That sounds about right, since I don't have much muscle mass.
I don't expect this to be fast. At a pound a week, I'll reach my goal by Christmas 2022. So I'm here for the long haul.
I walk for an hour most days, and I'm a keen gardener, so those are my main forms of exercise.

Hi everyone - new to MFP. I just joined a 16-week program on Tuesday to lose as much weight as I can & the doc recommended MFP for tracking so... here I am. I'm not 50 yet but will be in a few months so I hope I can be grandfathered in. I'm having a tough time understanding the macros vs. nutrients thing. Like yesterday I had some of the nutrients left, but my macros were maxed out or over goal, so I don't know how to balance that. Is there any kind of meal plans that I can refer to for my specific macro goals? I'm totally confused as to what I can eat to keep things within limits. Seems like everything I entered, I went over in some area or another and it's frustrating. Little did I realize that a freakin banana and apple for lunch would throw everything into chaos. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

whats that saying? Make God laugh, make plans?
So my mom fell back in mid march and broke her right femur up by her hip. She was in the hospital and then in rehab. Well in rehab they did a *kitten* job of monitoring her (she has Alzheimer's) and she fell AGAIN last week and broke her right femur AGAIN (this time down by her knee) and spent another week in the hospital. She's back in rehab again but I'm so angry because they are not willing to do any number of things that would help with control of her movements. They wont use guard rails, they wont use a bed alarm, et etc. Which results in us having to pay for private sitters who basically just sit next to her and help get the care team if she tries to get out of bed.
So yeah - my food intake has been crap and I'm just trying to be gentle with myself and watch quantity. I am liking this pretty spring weather though in this part of the world....
