    Welcome to the group. I'm working from home too, but I'm having a hard time figuring how you do that as a librarian. Please tell.

    We can't do as much as when we're open of course, but we've been offering virtual librarian services (basically our information desk, but via phone), I run a book club and moved to a Facebook group so that people can participate online, a lot of social media stuff in general.

    Hi! I’m Carla. 39, wife, mother of one 5yo, teacher, vegan, straightedge, derby girl.

    I’ve been using MFP on and off for years, but am new to challenged and am looking for in accountability.

    I’m trying to go more plant based rather than junk food vegan. Hubby & son are vegetarian.

    With the quarantine, I can’t do my normal HIIT classes and derby practices, so I’m trying to run 3x per week, Jillian Michaels DVDs 2x per week, yoga 2x per week, and casual outdoor skating once a week.

    Current: Size 12-14 (depends on brand)
    Goal: Size 8 (whatever that looks like)

    Hi everyone. I'm on my 31s. I joined this community just a couple of days ago to help me track faster my daily calories and general consumption as well as the burning.
    It has been working very well, with a goal of losing 1kg/week (which can as well be 0.5kg), and I need friends to keep me motivated!

    And then there are days your mom and her caregivers decide she needs to go to the er cause no one is returning her calls from the very specialized clinic she was calling.

    Ugh it sucks aging but it could always be worse I guess

    At least I'm sitting outside enjoying the Sun since I can't go to the hospital with her. ER in a pandemic is not the place to be right now

    I hope your mom is ok.

    Hey thanks. She's still there. She complained they were too busy, um pandemic mom. Haha. She should see the neurologist today. At least she'll have some good stories and the hospital posts how many covid cases their network have a d they're fairly low ....Phew

    So rad that you do roller derby! I did VERY briefly a couple years ago and really liked it, but ended up quitting because it was too intense for me. Hopefully someday I'll have the nerve to try again :)

    Hi all. 41, in the Uk with three kids and weight just going up and up.
    Just come back on these forum pages...not been here for a long time although still been “using” the food entry part of the app.
    I have put on an awful lot of weight in the last five years (since my 2nd child) and it’s really affecting my mental health now. I checked my waist measurement and it’s now in the “danger” zone for getting diabetes
    Etc. And still I eat so much crap. Eating is definitely my problem as my overall fitness isn’t too bad. Can run 5km a few times per week as well as online body weight work outs etc. But the more I workout, the more I eat. There is never one day I am under my daily allowance. And then I stray into the territory of just not entering half the things I eat into MFP.
    My meals are 90% healthy but the snack and crap I eat continuously all day and night is what is doing the harm.
    Anyone got any advice? Anyone want to be friends to help each other. I’m sick of spending most of my days thinking about food/eating/over eating over and over.

    I'm not sure I've ever spent so much of a day outside. It's finally feeling like spring!!! My lilacs are starting to get happy even. I guess it's time to figure out getting my snow tires off
