    @KickassAmazon76 dont stress about logging unless you or your PT have suggested it. I have my meal plan set up and I just pick a day and follow it. Measurements etc that’s it. For many the scale can cause issues.

    For me, I need the structure of logging to see results. I don't have a pt, or a meal plan. I've been on mfp for about 9 years now and when I log, I lose. I did ok without logging for about 2 years, but years 3 and 4 saw a resurgence of emotional eating.

    Logging will help me break those habits.

    The hardest part is maintaining 115lbs.

    My “comfortable” weight seems to be 120lbs- 124lbs- where I can eat whatever I want without micromanaging. When I’m laid back, my weight won’t go higher than that.

    But 115lbs seems like I have to eat like a rabbit, and be extremely mindful.

    Getting enough protein, keeping up my lifting and making sure I don't lose muscle.

    @vanityy99 i would suggest you consider leaning down to 115 first and then from there rever diet. This will allow you to work your way to 124 with little to no fat gain.

    At this point, I am going for total cals with mild attention to macros.

    Eta... FWIW... I responded to this thread as a "partners in crime" type of response, and not an "I need help, please help me".

    I know what works for me... I just stopped doing it. Lol.

    Being prepared (meal prep)
    My “Tupperware life” is pretty time consuming. Other than that, I want to transform my weight. My last pod pod showed 21% bf. my next is in 2 weeks and then m hoping to have built 4 pounds lean muscle mass and dropped 4 pounds of fat. My “weight” is the same but the Ab’s are finally starting to show again

    Meal prep/being prepared is key for me. I cook all my food on the weekends so I have healthy food ready to go during my work week. I eat healthy Mon-Fri and let myself have ice cream and cookies on the weekends so that fills my sweets cravings. I've stayed at or a couple lbs below goal weight throughout the entire shut down.

    @jtegirl1 hows the lockdown treating you? Our gyms have been shut since November and won’t open at least till late January.

    @Liftsalotat5 i always tend to pick a day or two to prep depending on the weeks schedule. If it’s busy then I prep the daily meals in the lunch boxes ready to eat or ready to dry fry. As for the days I’m not busy I just have the meals set to know what I want to eat and I cook. Try different recipes every now and again to keep it exciting.

    I travel weekly for work so I prep the week
    On sundays, I fail miserably eating at restaurants so it’s worth the effort

    My gym opened back up in June. We didn't have to wear masks until the past couple weeks. Now we have to wear the entire time we're in there which really sucks. I also have some equipment at home so while it was closed I worked out here at home throughout the whole thing. Now I go to the gym on Sunday late afternoon when it's dead and do my other two lifting days at home. That stinks that yours are shut down again. :/ Even though I have stuff here that I can do, it's not the same as having access to everything the gym has. I missed the hammie and cable machines when ours was closed.

    @jtegirl1 i agree training at home is not the same. I don’t have that much equipment but looking to get rid of the sofa in the living room to purchase equipment. Word around the street is gyms are likely to still be closed in February

    @Liftsalotat5 yeah I understand, once you get that menu and you see all those meals infront of you as well as the visual of the plates on other people’s tables
