2019 Welcome Noobs to MFP



  • IndigoWitchIndigoWitch Member Posts: 54 Member Member Posts: 54 Member
    Hello! I'm completely new to MFP. I've heard of it but never jumped in. What's changed for me is that I am now serious about getting healthy and fit! I'm 50, and lucky to have my health and I want to keep it that way. So my goal is to lose 40 pounds by September 15th and hopefully have some fun while I'm at it. I love to run, but I am going to sideline the running, and focus on introducing strength training and some yoga (which will be completely new to me). Good Luck to all!!!

    New here,

    Over the past 5 weeks or so I have lost about 12-15 pounds and now just trying to lose that stubborn belly and try to get the abs to show through.
    Any good eating tricks for that?

    Hello everyone! I'm super excited to be here and part of the community. This is not the first time I've attempted to get healthy, but this time I feel like I'm walking in with more will power and energy. I'm really looking forward to talking with other members and sharing ideas. 😊

    What do you want to join? This is just an open thread for those new to MFP. Nothing to join here. Just continue to post here if you like.

    There are some groups on MFP that you have to join, and the instructions for that are usually in the first post in the thread.

    Hi all! I have been away for many years and am looking to re-start my health journey! I'll take any tips or other forums/groups to join for others in the same situation. I got off track for awhile and am looking for MFP to help my surge of motivation right now! =) Happy Tuesday everybody. =)

    Hello everyone, Mahmoud here from Cairo, Egypt.
    I'm quite the hard gainer, so my current goal is to gain size and muscle.
    Trying a caloric surplus plus a 5x5 program 💪💪

    Hi, I just joined today and am trying to improve my diet. I like to cook, but it's not easy where I am living right now, so my diet has suffered. I'm hoping the guilt factor will motivate me to try harder! xb.

    My main nooby question today is about adding an exercise. I have been doing pottery for 4-5 days most weeks, and since starting that my arm muscles have grown exponentially (slight exaggeration)! But I have no idea how to describe it/compare to other exercises. We roll clay often, which is much like rolling dough, if you're a baker, but the clay is usually harder to roll than bakery dough. So what can I compare that to??

    I am posting for my husband . He is T1 Diabetic on Keto/modified atkins diet for seizure control and blood glucose control. I do not know how to work with "my fitness pal", but need to log exercise and food eaten/nutrition at physician request. We "are" under physician supervision. I posted a question about the exercise log yesterday but can't find it now. We exercise on a ZAAZ eliptical vibration plate machine. I guess I am clueless about what I'm doing. Also I need to find how to post Factor 75 keto meals. They told me all their meals are in your database. I am not finding them. Probably searching incorrectly. My Husband is underweight. Would like to get his weight up.

    I heard about MFP through my teacher and I thought might as well lose some weight for my Quinceñera.
