    I've made a 21 day challenge health group with some of my Facebook friends. Each month this year, we'll pick a different healthy habit to build together. January- we are tracking water consumption with a goal of 64+ per day (some of us picked a gallon). Not sure what February will be, but I'm thinking most likely 5 a day fruits and veggies. The intention is that we will keep each good habit and just build onto it... so by this time next year, we'll be healthier in 12 different ways!

    I like many others gained weight in 2020 with my job moving online for most of the year! I'm the heaviest ever and hate it.
    1. Participate in some form of exercise a minimum of 4 days a week while resistance training at least twice a week- leg day and arm day. It's important bc before I become ingrown into my couch, I used to workout 6x a week. I've always favored HIIT and cardio so I know I need more resistance training.
    2. Reach my goal weight of 135 by July 4 so I can celebrate Independence Day FREE of all this fat😆

    4. To keep my husband on the healthy track too with me.
    5. To make 2021 best year of my life.
    6. To fight the anxiety through healthy habits and by taking it easy on myself.

    Happy New Year all. I am fairly new. A year ago I had a brain injury and that cost me many things including my health. I was a runner and going to the gym 5-6 days. Short story, since injury I have gained 23 pounds sadly and still I am dealing with rehab. I started to workout at home 5-6 days intense and some days walk.
    Based on level of my activity I need to consume 1200-1500. My app connected to my Garmin watch.

    When I exercise this is for example shows: 1200 (goal)-947(food)+141(exercise)=394(remaining)

    Question: Do I have still eat the 394 remaining calories in order to reach my goal?

    Second question: Does it matter how much carbs involved in my healthy diet or only calorie count matter in order to lose weight?

    I worried if I eat too much carbs even I stay in my calories goal (1200-1500) and not lose weight. Should I cut it and eat more protein, veggies, and fruits. I do eat good carbs tho :)

    I have tired a couple of things but not working and really struggling. I really appreciate if anyone can really help me. Thank you and wishing everyone around the world the best 2021 and peace

    Hey guys, i am relatively new on myfitnesspal. I am a 21 year old girl, all my life i have been the bigger girl in the group, the one with no boyfriend, the one guys would approach to help them out to get close to my friends that are prettier and of course skinny. It was never really an issue for me growing up, of course i always got bullied wether it being through school people would always call me 'fat','ugly','over weight' and the list of nasty names go on and on. I dealt with it as if it wasn't an issue as i have always had a supportive friend group and family that would always say yeah you maybe on the bigger side but you've got a good heart which is what kinda got me through the bullying, but on top of all that i have always considered myself to be someone that is very confident despite my weight. It was only last year since i started getting older, i realised i never had a boyfriend before and trends on the internet kept on advertising skinny girls in bikinis or fit girls working out at the gym and thats what guys would consider 'hot' or 'attractive'. Don't get me wrong, in this day and age people are more accepting to the fact that big girls are actually pretty too and there is this whole body positivity movement going around which si great. But, it was only when my friend had signed up for an online dating app and she encouraged me to do the same and i realised that i got no likes where she on the other hand was planning multiple dates. So as per usual, i would hang out with her and her date and would be known as the DUFF (designated ugly fat friend) and i came to a realisation that change needed to be made. I started my weightloss journey in the beginning of 2020, lucky for me i had a cousin that was already living a vegan lifestyle for 5 years and she is also one of the main reasons as to why i decided to make the switch, i am now a full vegan and its been a year and in total i have lost 35kg. I am still far from my goal but, i am persistent on making it happen. My dream goal is to be 70kg by my birthday which is in June. I am currently at 100kg and hopefully with 2021 i can reach my goal that is long overdue.
