    I'm also starting over. After a long illness I had dropped 50#, I've put almost 30# back on. My glucose numbers have risen and I'll do anything to stay off insulin. Can someone tell me about Clean Eating? :(

    Been operating on a low carb high fat protocol, trying to eat at least mostly clean, for about 6 months. Looking to take my clean eating to the next level, though. Glad to have found this group!

    Hey there! You can do this!

    I think that adding friends is important to staying accountable. Perhaps add lots of friends and then make a post on your own board every day?

    It's been two years since I've tried to lose weight. I'm currently on day 2 and doing ok. Hubby and I even started doing couples yoga 😁 I'm hoping that with him doing it with me that it will help keep me accountable. Plus, I feel so much better after. ☺

    I started eating healthy again two weeks ago but im in to my first week back on mfp. I am more determined than ever to vet healthy again. I have lost 4lbs so far this time . I have a lot more to lose but I'm determined to push through this time and I won't give up no matter what. You will do it ! Set your mind to it and take it one day at a time. Set small goals and never give up😊

    I am starting over too. I finally decided to talk with my doctors about losing weight and they are finally helping me, my previous doctors did not. I am on wellbutrin, eating about 1300-1500 calories per day with 40% carbs, 30% protein and 30% fat. I do not eat 3 hours or less before bedtime, and have started adding bone broth and collagen to my diet. In one month, I have lost 7 pounds. Started at 215, now 208, but my goal is 130-150.
