Getting Fit in the 30's

Hello! I've lost a bunch of weight a few years ago but gained it back after having my daughter. I'm having trouble with accountability and motivation this time around as there is less time in the day and I'm more tired than before! Looking for others in their 30's needing accountability. I have a fitbit I use. What would help everyone with accountability? Thoughts on how we can do this together?

    I don't have a fitbit but am using MFP for weight loss accountability. I'm in my 30s as well, and would love to check in to see how everyone is doing.

    Hi! I’m in my 30s and looking to lose 30 pounds. I’m in the same boat and would love to have someone hold me accountable and give and get support to help each other achieve our weight loss goals. Do you find your Fitbit has helped? I’ve contemplated getting one myself. Looking forward to shedding these pounds together!

    Yes!! I found the Fitbit helpful for me cause I need something visual to look at to make me see my progress more. I would definitely recommend something like it.

    How about this week everyone reports what they did for exercise and if they met their eating goals each day from Monday to Saturday?

    I am in the same boat. Mum of 5 here! I had gotten down to my lowest adult weight and was so fit and loving life after my 4th child. Then life happened and then another baby and I am stuck in a rutt!

    I was overweight in my 20s too but it does get harder in your 30s! I’m down to my lowest weight since my wedding 10 years ago but I still could go another 15 lbs to be ideal. I found that I had to stop trying to make my healthy meals my family’s healthy meals as well. It’s just too hard juggling what everyone will eat that is also good for me. Now I make dinner for my family and I make myself protein and veggies and sometimes they can overlap but it just takes the guessing out of it and I don’t feel like I have to eat the Mac and cheese when it’s really there for the kids.
