    Luck is not required... Just the willingness to try and and try again should you falter! :)

    Okay okay! Good luck! 😀

    @Poobah1972 beat me to it.

    It’s not a matter of luck. It’s focus and application. If you provide both, MFP will provide the roadmap.

    Weigh your food accurately, log honestly, find a reasonable calorie goal that doesn’t leave you scrambling at the end of the day, and stick to it as closely as possible.

    We all screw up. Your weight will bounce around the first couple of months as you adjust to new habits, new dietary choices, and (probably) new exercises. Don’t panic and don’t give up.

    And remember, slower loss is better and more maintainable.

    Success to you! (Not luck.)
