    Hi, 46, desperately wanting to lose weight and tone up, any advice on finding some motivation? I love food and hate the gym 🤔
    You don't have to go to the gym to lose weight. Just burn more calories than you eat. Lots of folks here have lost weight without intense exercise. Start logging your food every day. After a couple of weeks, you can look at your diary and start making changes to your food intake.

    Hey all. Happy rainy Monday from Alabama. Today is the day that I am starting (yet again) back on plan. I am thinking I will take baby steps and start with lazy keto. Would love to have new friends for sharing motivation and info. Have a good one.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all the Canadians. I need to get up and start cooking. I've done lots of prep already.

    Two more days and I get my surgery. In two days I'll be at the hospital getting ready. Eek.

    The big day is almost here. We will be here cheering you on while you're on the road to recovery.
    I hope you have a great Thanksgiving. Eat all the goodies!

    Hi! I am new on this forums (not to MFP). I would like to add accountability friends. In the past, like 5 years ago, you could do a search with people that had a similar journey to yours (Pounds to lose, age, etc...) is that still around?
    What would be a good place to start?
    Guidance will be greatly appreciated! :smile:

    We were just debating whether to keep the boy home from school That day. He's really sensitive and I worry he might be upset at school. He's used to his grandparents having surgeries but it's different with mom

    My brother is coming to town to help out and they are like twins so he'll have a fun time. I'm thinking part of keeping him off school is for me too. He's my buddy and will make sure to hold my hand if I'm nervous.....when I'm nervous

    Hi all! Just turned 40 back in June. Loosing weight, eating healthy, staying on track and motivated are not my strong points. Loosing weight even when I have tried eating healthy and doing good workouts resulted in no changes except bigger calf muscles which I didnt need as they are super strong and big and never seem to fully relax. Anyway, I joined in order to help my urology dr see how much water I am drinking daily and what my sodium intake is. Im hoping that by starting off with this I can maybe get onto a better grasp of healthy eating and exercising. P.s. I have been the same weight since my youngest child was born 17yrs ago. Ugh. Now that 17yr old has celiac disease and we eat gluten free meals together. I however, still eat regular foods and she sticks to her diet. Look forward to getting to know some of you!

    I've been off track for quite sometime. It's now time to get back on track and get back to healthy mind, body and soul. I'm ready to make this happen once and for all! For me. For my family. For my life. Would love to meet new friends so we can motivate and inspire one another. Feel free to add me:) Thanks!
