@annliz23 thank you I know God will take care of them & send/lead her to resources/job etc, It's been going on for couple months & I just feel the strain. I have been making myself take better care of me, I went to the step class Tuesday & am going today soon. It's 2 days/wk. I decided if I don't go to any other class, I'll go to that at least. It's also supposed to be 102+ for the next 10 days. I don't do well in the heat & around this time of year my tolerance gets lower due to being hot all the time, but it'll be over soon for another year. I've been doing better on my deficit except for yesterday, I had too many chips. Tomorrow is one of my grandson's B day. Our youngest son is bringing dinner (gs requested spaghetti & chocolate cake) he's getting cake from Costco. I don't like chocolate cake so that will be easy to pass up, he makes great spaghetti but I'm going to eat at home before the party & hopefully skip the food. I'm glad he's not making his chocolate cake from scratch because I love that one(it's the only chocolate cake I love, with buttercream frosting-to die for) & it would be hard to stop. I'm picking up my friend & her dog in the morning before it gets hot & going to a large human park with trails & other things, it'll be a good walk. They do have a dog park also & will probably do a couple rounds in there. I always burn a lot of calories when ever I go there. I'm only taking Eleanor, my GSD girl

I had an awful morning grrrr...I got to my friends to pick her up. She wasn't ready. The door bell woke her up. I told her she can come next time, she said she'll hurry & get dressed. Me & Eleanor waited in car for about 15min when she opened the door & both her dogs ran out. One of them is aggressive & would have attacked Eleanor. That's why we waited in the car. I followed her in car while she went after the dogs. They turned into a cul de sac. I locked the doors & good thing cuz my friend tried to open them to get Cheif, the friendly dog to jump in but the other dog, Zoe didn't have leash on yet. I followed her home & eventually got Chief in car & went to park. Our mutual friend was down by the river so we wanted to go say "hi" but shouldn't have because the walk there was SO hot only a 12 minute walk but the delay made it too warm. My friend walked slow & stopped to chat so I was way ahead of her but did wait under shady tree. I was upset about the whole thing mostly because I've been worried about my daughter & it makes me short tempered plus my "best friend" doesn't usually think any thing is a big deal, ugh. They even messed up our order at Starbucks after! The good part is we walked for 1.5hrs & that was good exercise. I'm just glad we're home. Hope ya'll have a great weekend

Turned 60 earlier this year, and retired, and decided this is the year of tackling my weight. Gaining 5 lbs in a year doesn't seem like much, until you do it consecutively for 16 years (!!!). Am on day 26 of tracking w/MFP and down 7 lbs. Walking 1 hour every day; doing some kind of aqua fitness 4-5x per week. Just today got up the courage to actually measure my waist. (insert emoji with eyes popping out of head). Have a doc appt for next week and hope to get some guidance there. Goal is to lose 50 (43 to go!) in 50 weeks. Cheering on others and hope to get some encouragement here, too. Cheers!

Hi all—I’m 63 & I’m on day 2. I need to lose about 100 Lbs or else I’m in big trouble. A lifelong dieter, I’ve tried every program out there. Hoping MFP is the answer I’m looking for.
