    New stuff sucks but choosing to stay stuck in an unhappy place cuz it seem easier is by far way worse.

    YES! I needed to see this! And being stuck in an unhappy place may "seem" easier but it isn't - for me it's stressful, and I'm always annoyed with myself. That's not really "easier," is it?

    I am feeling pretty good about my body image this summer! Look forward to summer dresses and tan lines😎. I hope to make it to the beach at least once this summer and hope for a few camping trips as well!

    I have been doing YouTube videos and walking outdoors to stay active most everyday.

    I am eating mostly vegetables and some fruit and mainly turkey or chicken breasts for protein.

    I’m looking forward to my health journey. I feel I have most of the fundamentals to make this time actually stick when it comes to maintaining a healthy weight for my body and also for my spirit!!!!

    This is going to be an amazing summer! It has no other option (; Last year was a 'bummer summer' but I am going to do all the things this summer: beaches, kayaking, s'mores, etc
    This summer has the added bonus victory of new baby (2 months now) who is coming into her own.
    To stay on track I'm logging, I want to eat enough for breastfeeding, but have enough of a deficit to lose the extra weight.

    Going to have a great summer as I am off to a good start - following a lifestyle change program and doing well with it. Have just moved here to MFP and finding my way around. Would like help with starting a 'blog' as I made one but can't find it when I look for recent blogs so don't no why but 2 people gave it a vote - also 2nd blog does not show just the first one so not sure - Alex sure would appreciate hearing from you with respect to this as it is a bit frustrating.
    But summer is going to be great with losing between 10 - 30 pounds by end of August as long as I do what I need to do with respect to proper eating

    Hello my name is Hamad. I have just signed up and I am excited to share with you all my meal plan and what I do for sports. So I wake up early and I do fast during the day till about 3 pm, then off to workout, come back and eat my only meal of the whole day. I do not feel hungry at all and feel my body has gotten so adjusted to eating one meal a day. I also follow a ketogenic diet. I am wondering if what I am doing is good. The good thing though that I feel I have achieved so far is the fact that my body runs on fat most of the time. I am eager to hear from you all what you think about this plan. I know it is a bit boring as I only eat one meal a day, but that is what made me lose weight and keep up off for over a couple of years. I also have solved a chronic issue I had before, enlarged prostate, which I was so happy to have solved after so many visits to the doctors who did not help.
