    56 and trying again. Down 52 lbs on my way to 100. Im stuck. Just did 800 cal x 5 days and 1500 over the weeked and went up half a lb. This gets frustrating after while. Very disappointed. Just wanting 2 lbs to shed weekly. Ughhhhh!

    Please don't try to get by on 800 calories per day unless you are being medically supervised. You can do serious and permanent damage to your body. Have you used the MFP calorie setting tool? Set it to lose one pound a week and see what it says. Try to hit that target; don't try to undershoot it.

    Among other things that will sabotage you, if you undereat for long, you'll very likely go on a binge and undo what you were trying to do. It can also cause you to lose your hair. Your body will start to digest muscles for fuel. Your heart is a muscle. Your body can actually start to eat your heart just for fuel. Please take a step back and set yourself a healthy goal, then stick to it!

    Well it's a cold Sunday night, just starting My last shift of the weekend, roll on the morning so I can have a few days off for a bit of a rest.
    Hope you all have had a great weekend, I know I have, work or otherwise. Lots of exercising in the office with the resistance bands is helping and keeping Me going in the right direction.
    Staying off the alcohol for the rest of the month too which should also help, just shipped in supplies of alcohol free beer, at 46 calories a bottle I may well partake in one or two over the month just for the flavour.
    Doctors again tomorrow, going to find out, hopefully what the next stage is going to be, maybe surgery, maybe something else, am really quite unsure but whatever happens I will get right, eventually.

    Been to see the consultant today and his comment was "that's a bit of a mess"
    So now I'm being referred to the deformity reconstruction specialists who say they will will have to break the bone in several places pin it, plate it to straighten it.
    Not the best of days but it's not going to stop Me.

    Good Morning All! I have gained back half of the weight I lost. MFP worked so well for me, I'm back. I have been trying everything under the sun, but haven't had any success. MFP is the ONLY weight loss support/plan for me! So, here's to looking forward, not backwards and getting rid of those pounds, making better choices and getting healthy!

    Heard that, @berky06. This is the only thing that worked for me, too. I'm a believer in the power of this community!

    Good morning everyone. I'm new to all of this. Love the support y'all give to each other. I'm in the first stages of my long journey of trying to lose 100lbs. I started watching what I eat and logging everything into this MFP app. So far im down 13lbs. Any tips or pointers?

    Just rejoined after years away but after an injury that’s had me out of work for 3 mths most of it in lockdown I’ve struggled with my food.
    I’m also a postie (delivering mail and parcels) amd so usually quite active.

    I’m 40 and only slightly overweight at 165lbs 165cm height but I get so sluggish and my IBS reminds me I’m not eating correctly or doing enough exercise.
    I’m starting small and just trying to log my food for a while and see patterns in my bad eating and I usually find changing one small thing a week helps to not overwhelm.

    This week it is getting back out walking, next week will be upping my water intake (less tea and pop)

    I'm back on MFP for the first time in several years. I think I was around here a lot in 2015-2016? Anyway, I'm about to turn 38 and figured I should probably get the physique I want while I am still "young".

    There's lots of good information and tips in the sticky threads at the top of each forum category. The links below are from a couple of the forums. Each forum category has some of this useful information. Check the appropriate forum and/or post a question in the forum when you need information or input on a particular question.

    Get a food scale and use it. Just log everything at first. Once you have some data, you can figure out how to fine tune your diet for your preferences and needs.

    And get some friends on here. Very helpful at keeping me on track. I tell people that the community support is the best feature of MFP.

    Sending you a friend request. You got this!

    Good morning everyone. No idea why but I keep getting friend requests from men who have a semi naked woman as their profile pic and said women are certainly in no need to be here by the looks of them. Anyone else getting them ?

    Do everyone a favor. Report these to staff. There's a bunch of bots sending these out, and staff can shut the accounts down. There was a data breach a while ago, and now it seems that information is being used to hijack accounts, for what reason nobody is sure. But don't risk being taken for a ride.

    Staff will get our personal messages even if you're not friends. You can find links to staff at https://community.myfitnesspal.com/en/discussion/10028709/meet-our-community-team You can also go through the HELP feature at the top of each page.

    But please do report them.

    Thank you.
