    My progress so far. Just finished my 8th week of a cut and have 4 more weeks to go. Still trying to lose those last few lbs for summer. No more cheat days and meals for me. Someone keep me accountable.mylpadlbdppy.jpeg

    Hi all. I am new to using the community so please forgive me if I don’t quite get how it all works yet. I’ve used MFP for years on and off and successfully lost weight with it quite a few times before and after I had a baby. My weight has always fluctuated but as I get older it gets harder to shift?! Cruelty! I am getting so demotivated by trying and failing again and again lately so am feeling a little downtrodden but committed to getting back in my favourite clothes and feeling fit and proud of myself for having done what I wanted to do. I’d like to find an approach that is sustainable too so I stop yo-yoing - can’t be good for health right?! Plus I don’t want my daughter worrying about weight like I do as she grows up (but the world isn’t helping me out here is it?!) Any and all tips welcome but my plan is to track/stick to set calories on here everyday and make sure I get some good physical activity everyday eg brisk walking with a couple of cardio sessions too. Good luck everyone I hope you have a good week. Xx

    Do people on here know that a Woo is not a good thing.

    Nope, I think people assume it's a "woohoo," and MFP could probably have chosen a less confusing negative flag because I've seen a lot of woos on posts where I'm sure they're trying to be supportive. BTW, you're doing great on your cut! If you only have a month to go, maybe post here for daily accountability? Something quick like whether you stuck to your eating plan.

    Hi, new people! I've been away on vacation and this little group is growing, yay! More folks to cheer for!
    3/11 157.8
    3/18 156.6. (-1.2 lbs)
    3/25 154.8 (-1.8 lbs)
    4/01 156 (+1.2)
    4/08 155.2 (-.08)
    4/15 152.8 (-2.4)
    4/22 ON VACATION, NO SCALE
    4/29 149.6 (-3.2)

    Total challenge weight loss: 8.2 lbs
    *But I'm 147.8 today, so hoping next week's weigh-in is dramatically awesome!

    Note: I'm starting a month of keto as of yesterday, so no calorie cycling, though it may happen naturally because when I did keto in the past, it really reduced my appetite. Calorie cycling and sticking to my minimum step goal worked great on vacation and I maintained.

    Goal weight for this challenge: 137

    We used Woo when we could not believe something or it was like Wow really! for example "I ate a whole family size bag of chips" my response would be "Woo". Is that how it is used here also?

    Thanks Hilogirl. I try to log everything I eat and if I go over I try to post something on my wall. Maybe I should update here as well. And woo means “you think and idea or approach is too good to be true”

    @mkgoodson1007 I always figured it was negative because my association with woo is "woo science"- basically what you said- but this is an international community and who knows if that term has any meaning outside the U.S. I guess MFP decided Boo would be too harsh lol.

    I have been lurking this thread for a couple days... I am joining! I am basically maintaining at this point. I signed up at a local gym and this year I am not letting my $ go to waste (aka: not going). I went last night, didn't make it today bc work travel... but I'm gonna do a PopSugar workout from Youtube shortly.

    Two steps forward, one step back. I totally deserved this week’s weight gain (1.4 lbs). Didn’t track for the weekend while I was in a three day workshop and too many cheets. This week I go back to diligence and staying on track.

    Some say it is a good thing...some people say it's the equivalent of reporting someone for inappropriate behavior...idk🤯

    I am frankly getting tired of this vicious cycle of weight loss in the summer/weight gain in the winter every damn year, but alas I failed to maintain my weight yet again this winter. Planning to lose about 20 lbs by summer. This time I want to keep it off. Who's down?

    I'm sooo in!🏃‍♀️🚴‍♀️🤽‍♀️🤸‍♀️

    Would it be easier to invite each other on here?
