I’m new to this

I’m tired of eating healthy...binging(then giving up)...and eating healthy again. It’s a vicious cycle. BUT enough is enough! I’m tired of giving up. I’m doing this for me, and losing this weight! I have no idea how to send people request....but I’m in strong need of some great motivation!!!! Send me some requests

    @cee134 has helped me so much with motivation and inspiration. Maybe he can help you too.

    I got all my motivation from @UrBaconMeCr8zy

    I just sent you a request (at least I think I did). I opened up diary the other day for others to see. I stick to wasting a bunch of the same stuff simply because it works for me and doesn't bother me. On weekends I'll splurge a little and have pizza one night (but I get thin crust) or if I go out to eat I'll have a couple rolls (if being served) and will get an order of fries with my meal (generally steak or chicken).

    I used to be in the same boat though. I started wanting to lose weight at the end of 2012 and I managed to lose nearly 50 lbs (by June 2013) without this wonderful MFP app but fell off the wagon after being turned down by sometime I worked with and pulled very much. I ended up getting back 30ish pounds and over the next several years went on and off the diet. Finally started using MFP last August and feel better than I can ever remember since I've carried this weight as a child.

    Things to remember though is you can still eat 'yummy' foods such as pizza, ice cream, chips, cookies, chocolate etc... I have chips and chocolate daily but keep it in moderation. Just go online or in store and get you a food scale to weigh all your foods on to log them in the app.

    If I can do this, you can do this. We all can do this!

    some people say follow 80-20 rule ,80% of your daily diet healthy and the rest can be what ever you wish .too much restricting only cause every one to stop eating clean . besides cheat days are allowed once a week

    Keep your head up. I’m there myself and it’s a daily struggle. I’m 22 pounds down and I have a long way to go so I’m in this fight with you! You can do this!
