    Hey all BIG announcement Bella & I are going Keto Light ( I made that up ) & bBelkas a dog so all meat is fine by her . I’m actually doing more like low carb . But Keto Bella sounded cuter . Something has to change in my life . I stayed at the beach shack Aline yesterday with Bella . Ladies no kidding it is actually last house on the left . It’s so dark down there but I did it ! So brave & so proud ! Worked there today , & decided to drive home instead of sleeping in the “ crime scene “! Missed you all today . First solid day of low carb . I expect to be at goal in the morning ! LOL JK ! Hope my girls are killing their Saturday

    @debq3 Yes be a consistent poster ! That’s what we need to stay motivated ! I HATE groups that haven’t posted in months what’s the point ! I literally typed in something the other day & the last group post was 2013 . Seriously they should just clear that stuff up ! Welcome list often ! Let’s inspire each other to do well !

    @amybroccoli86 ( that name is fantastic ! How are things going ? I’ve been pretty honest here lately at my sincere failure ! A little embarrassed that my progress line looks like a bad EKG but I’m trying again ! I hope you are doing well !

    I had a good day today.. I went to watch Barnsley Women play football and instead of getting my usual lift I decided to ride my bike there so a few extra calories burned this week 🚲⚽😊

    Phew. Had a great week in terms of fun, but certainly not so great in terms of calories/workouts. With family in town with their kids we were on a very different schedule, so I ate at weird times (like the morning, which is weird for me) and had a lot of coffee to keep up. I expect a little gain (who can turn down delicious Crab Cake Eggs Benedict?!) but that is worth it, not gonna beat myself up this time I'm just gonna hit it hard tomorrow and get back on track. From my catching up it sounds like a few ups and downs like myself, stick with it ladies we are gonna be moving mountains!

    Look at that, i missed all these wonderful posts again! For some reason i don't get the notifications from the community discussions. @vottav21 i do get weird requests from men all the time, i also got such requests last time i was on mfp so this time, i have made it pretty clear from the start that i have no interest in talking to men on mfp. But some of the requests i get are from pretty decent people with whom i have many mfp friends in common so it sucks to decline their requests (but the number of such people is very low)

    How often do you all check in with your doctor regarding health issues or weight loss? Just once a year, more, less? I know because I have health issues I am supposed to check in twice a year at least but it has been almost a full year.... and I am so nervous about my labs tomorrow that it is crazy. :#

    Are you a musician? I realize it doesn't take super huge big skill to play the uke, but you seem to speak with confidence about playing and singing.

    @MaeesaAHHH can I ask you & the other ladies here a question . Are you getting random requests from men to be your friends ? I have no interest in chatting with men . I’ve received 3 requests . It feels jerky to turn a friend request down but 2 were very young men & todays was someone in Alaska but I clicked on the photo & it said no friends no posts . Is this some fishy thing I should be afraid of ? I declined by the way . But I still feel bad . My mamma raised a girl who hates to offend .

    I've had a few requests too and if they seem dodgy I will remove them.. You shouldn't feel bad as it is your profile and you can have whomever you want on it.. Or not 😀

    I have some friends on here who are men and also trying to get fit and have been good friends and very supportive. I think you can tell pretty quickly who is here for the right reasons. For a while I actually got a bunch of...how shall I put this... pornographic female accounts lol not sure what list I ended up on but it's stopped now. I get skeeved out when a man private messages me, I usually just don't reply and then they delete me lol

    I have too many chronic conditions so i get checked every 3-4 months. I guess it depends on wat kind of problems u have, the doctor usually tells u how often u should follow up. If not, ask him or her at ur next appointment. Good luck 👍💓

    @allison8668 thanks for asking!!! I used to play lead guitar in a metal band when i was younger lol. I also played keys, guitar is 6 stringed whereas the uke is 4-stringed but i got my son a ukitar (or guilele) which is a hybrid (basically a 6 stringed uke). My son also has a guitar that his aunty gave him which he cant play yet. My voice is nothing out of the ordinary but i still sing cuz i love music so much hehe. I also played the mandolin briefly, another 4 stringed instrument like the uke. These days i just play/sing for fun, im no metal head lol 😆

    Lol @Gold6767 at ur experience! Yes, there are many nice people here i agree. But like everywhere else, it's a public network where we meet people we don't know. And we all have different priorities about using mfp: some of us are looking for new connections outside just fitness buddies, etc. I have lots of male friends in real life, my best friend from high school is a boy n we r still in touch but im not interested in meeting new people on social networks at this phase of life to be honest. N i dont want to deal with drama with my husband if any situation arises, so i just play it safe. Also, the reason i mentiom I've been approached by sketchy men here on mfp is that I've mentioned everywhere on mfp including my profile that im a mom n i dont want male friends but they add me anyway.
