Hello. First time posting and really engaging on MFP. Not sure how to join. I'm 44 and really have tried to put a serious focus on my health this year. I woke up one day in January and was over it. I went immediately into a 30 day Whole 30 style cooking/eating. I've been eating clean since January. Lost about 22 lbs initially but have been slipping with "cheat meals" on weekends so I need to reign it in this month. Last weekend was 3 cheat meals and that is enough. Thought joining a group like this will help me keep up the efforts day-to-day. I suffer from chronic back pain b/c of 2 heriniated discs so working out is a struggle. I just bought a stationary bike thinking that would be a good option. Did my first workout yesterday and it was rough lol but I got through 30 mins so I'm off to a good week. I know I have a long journey ahead and I have been good with turning the page when I do allow myself a cheat meal. I was pretty strict in Jan/Feb. I swear I gain wait just by looking at something sugary lol I am putting in a better effort this week and hoping this group will keep me going. My goals are simple...Lose weight, get strong and live healthier.

Hello! First time group joiner here. I really lost my grip in 2020. I'm 45, and very likely perimenopausal. Getting to my goal weight will take some serious work, but it's that or giving up - and I'm not ready to give up.
