    WELCOME @mojo48212 to our team!! Hope you find all of the help and support from the team that I've enjoyed for a long, long time. It's a great bunch of people...when you get a second, take time to introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about your journey and goals you've set.

    If you have any questions, please post and we'll all do our best to find answers for you. Most of all, post and share when you're having good days or bad...usually when you share, it ends up helping someone else...looking forward to getting to know you!

    Again, welcome!

    The scale went in the wrong direction 😕 this week. We had a celebratory Italian dinner yester evening - my daughter got student of the month @ school (Yay!) - probably went overboard with the warm brioche and garlic dipping oil.

    Shifts at work have increased my responsibilities and workload. I'll have to figure out how to keep/maintain my health habits (logging, meals, lunch walks) without getting overwhelmed and letting work take priority.

    Hello All, thank you for welcoming me to Shape Shifters! I am excited to be here.

    I'm a 47 yo female in MI. I have struggled with weight my entire life. I have also struggled with depression and anxiety for most of my adult life. Living in the COVID era has intensified the depression.

    I first joined MFP in 2012 to get healthier. I was working a job that had me on my feet 10 hours a day with an hour lunch and access to a free gym I utilized Monday through Friday. I had success with this setup and had my eating, anxiety, and depression under control. In 2017 I took a promotion that had me sitting at a desk for 75% of my day but I managed to maintain my previous success. I was able to join a gym and my living situation made it easy for me to prioritize my health and fitness.

    Fast-forwarding to today, I have gained back everything I lost and then some. I am very near going back on medication for depression and anxiety which I do not want to do. The meds are not for me, I find some of the side effects are worse than my issues, so I prefer to manage through exercise. I joined Noom for a bit but I did not find it helpful. I already knew much of the information I was being "taught." Needing a more social environment since I have little support for my goals in my current living situation, I have returned to MFP in search of a community I can lean on when times are tough.

    I have started running again, which has been tough, I have been battling breathing issues unrelated to COVID since the start of my training in January. But I keep pushing through. If anyone here is a runner and uses a Garmin I would love to have more connections. Just look for MJ Reeves

    I have no friends left from my original time spent here. I would love to add some friends. I am a bit introverted at times so I may not always respond quickly, please do take that personal.

    I look forward to our journies together!
