    Hello folks!

    Approaching my mid-40s and now back on track with calorie counting and overall well-being. Not my first rodeo, but hopefully my last. I was off for a couple of years and MyFitnessPal seems to have developed nicely in the meantime.

    Starting from 120 kg (265lbs) range and shooting for 90 kilos (below 200lbs) during this year. Weight is not a priority, looking and feeling better is. Already now my mental well-being is much better! It's not really about the goal but the journey itself is meaningful and (somewhat) enjoyable.

    I've noticed that tracking progress in multiple ways is very helpful and also getting a no-*kitten* assessment of my starting point was needed. Started with Inbody measurement a few weeks back which gives you a lot of data and does not cost that much. It's available in the Nordics, at least. Weight, fat %, BMI, area of subcutaneous fat etc. It also pays to measure your waist, thighs and arms. If you're doing weight exercises, you may notice development on these measures even if your weight seems to stall. Helps with motivation. Weekly measurements are enough, no need to step on a scale on daily basis. For Inbody -type of measurement, every couple of months is good.

    I've done this journey a couple of times before and at least to myself, data is the key to make progress. I suppose for most of us (since we are here) this would apply.

    Happy to be part of this community, I wish everyone good luck and good progress. Looking for buddies for accountability and sharing tips and tricks, feel free to add me if you wish.

    Sorry for typos, English is not my first language.

    Happy Wednesday to everyone!

    54 here. Started back on MFP this year to address some weight I added over the past decade and it's been working so far. Great site, best people. Feel free to add me if you'd like to support each other.

    Happy Wednesday
    Two curling games with lots of sweeping in 12 hours is hard work. I'm starting to feel the effects but the scale showed a decrease so I'm taking it. Now time to stretch and hope I can make it through one more game tomorrow evening then I get a break.

    Good morning group and TGIF! Anyone have any plans for the weekend? Our weather is so up and down lately and looks like this weekend may be good for yard work for me. :)

    I'm on vacation as of today. Good bye snow hello sun and sand!!!! We're headed on a cruise, yes I've heard the reports of ships being turned away from ports, yes i heard about the one that was quarantined, yes I have heard there's a new virus out there. Seems people love to bombard you with all the negative stuff they have heard. Except for the over 65 crowd who thinks it's awesome to be getting away.

    Enjoy your time!

    Hooray for 5 hour delays!!!! We should be approaching our destination but instead we're still waiting for the plane to arrive. Our 2:45 departure turned into 3:15, 5:53, 6:30 and now 7:30. This is why were flying down the day before our cruise. Hooray for airport bars

    Great call Ali! I've heard, something like: "There's no such thing as early, you're either upon time or you're late.".

    I'm scared to check the board for an update. Seems there's always a delay. Luckily we board our cruise at 12:30 tomorrow so we'll get to enjoy a bit of Miami tomorrow morning

    Greetings,

    I'm 48 (18) going on 49 (19) next month. Been working out for the past 2 years and don't regret it for a second.

    Hows everyone doing?

    Pretty good! It's been a difficult start for me but trying to take it one day at a time. :smiley:

    I'm new to the community portion of MFP but wondering does anyone here ever meet up in person? Or is it all totally online?
