    I started the year good, but had a rough week or so. Started back to exercising and eating better this week though due to a weight loss competition at my crossfit gym. Would like to connect with people that can push each other. Like the poster above me, looking to push each other. Feel free to add me and I can help keep you accountable and hopefully you return the favor. Add me if you'd like.

    Got 2 miles in today. Just a light run but I’m having a stressful week so it was good to work off some of those nerves. I’m hoping to get in another outdoor run on Saturday but right now rain/snow is in the forecast and I’m not running in that so it might be another treadmill run.

    @steph333 congrats!

    I feel better but not looking at scale. Watching water intake, calories and making time to move!

    Lets keep it up!

    Been super busy with my kids, especially the newborn 😴😌. Weather is horrible. rain all week but I'm hoping I can find some dry spots and go run. Been doing better with my calorie intake. Is anyone else having issues adding recipes to the site? When I'm done adding all the ingredients and push save...it disappears 😟.

    @proudmotherof6 - I had that issue yesterday when I was trying to adjust a recipe. I clicked save and it just reverted back. MFP can be so glitchy sometimes

    Met my water, workout and stayed within calories.
    Here’s my question though, when you add a workout and you gain some calories back, and then it tells you you’re not having enough calories in the day, what do you do? I’m sitting here like uhhh ok should I eat more?

    Yup, eat more. MFP is giving you a calorie goal assume no exercise. If you do exercise you’ll need to eat additional calories to fuel that workout. You especially need to eat more if MFP is saying didn’t eat enough calories since that means you are under 1000 net calories and probably aren’t reaching your basic nutritional needs.

    I haven't been moving as much while working on this computer so much. BUT this computer work is short lived so then I can get back to it. I am watching what I eat so I am still losing weight though =)

    I figured that may be the answer. So I guess I need to think more during the day about how many calories I may burn exercising because I workout pretty late at night and don’t want to eat after.
    Thank you!

    Today is a rest day for me so I’m going to do a half hour yoga session at some point. And then I just need to stick to my calorie goal.

    Hi I would like to join the group! I am 29 years old and I need to start taking care of myself ( emotionally, physically and mentally). I also hate looking at myself in the mirror :( . I also have two kids ( 13 and 10) and work a full time job. I would like to have friends with similar goals as myself, to live a healthier lifestyle.
