    @MaggieGirl135 Glad to hear that exercise is going great.

    You can do this! Just make little changes at a time. Start logging accurately, including weighing your food, even on those days when you go over calories. Log your weight each day and you'll be able to see how what you eat relates to fluctuations in your weight. Someone recommended Happy Scale to me early on. It's an app that looks at trends over time. That's been really helpful when I'm struggling.

    I've seen people recommend taking things at a slower rate. Set your calories to losing a half pound a week and see what happens. Try to be lower than that calorie level at least half of the time.

    Don't give up and stay engaged in the MFP community. This is the first time I'm confident that I'm going to hit my goal weight after decades of struggle. This community is helping me change my life.
