    Happy Friday Everyone ! Got any weekend plans? I don't. In other areas - I've eaten below 1200 cal for the past 2 days. I've not been hungry during it, so no big deal. I just expected to see some weight loss. I committed to doing this for 5 days. And already I'm saying things to myself to get out of it. LOL. I'm my own worst enemy. But I did not put any sugar in my coffee. That would be my first failing. So I still have a chance to be strong and get through day #3. If I were to stop today I'd have a kodiak cakes chocolate pancake for breakfast. But I think I'll just go for what I've been having the past 2 days. I want to go to a Renaissance Faire this year.

    You did not put on weight in two days so you cannot expect to lose it in two days either. Slow and steady wins the race! Be consistent and you will start to see the scale move. I know MFP sets a most people to 1,200 cals a day, but you may want to check out a MACRO calculator elsewhere. I have never used the 1,200 cals or MACROs MFP gives me. I lift weights and bike so at 1,200 cals I would be absolutely famished.

    Best of luck to all of you ladies! You can do this, stay consistent!

    Hello.. Feel free to add me if you wish..

    Im finally trying to lose a little weight yet again.

    I was diagnosed with hashimoto's thyroiditis a few years ago so piled on the weight and couldn't seem to shift it no matter how hard I tried.

    Last year during lockdown I started to cycle to work a couple of days a week and have increased to 4 days now and hopefully will start 5 days next month.. 7 miles each way 😊

    I've finally started to lose the weight slowly as well as building up a little muscle..

    Hopefully I will get motivation and inspiration from this community and also help others with their journeys too 😊

    Last week was disastrous for me food and exercise wise, also my health wasn't the best. Today is a brand new day.... I am starting fresh! Slow cooking a pot of mushroom veggie soup

    @MaeesaAHHH I’m right there to support you honey ! Soup sounds wonderful . It’s raining ( again) here in RI & cool enough for soup . I just made my tea & im going to start my Artist Way Morning Pages . This week I have a car , there aren’t many things to worry about or go to , so the gym & what goes in this mouth are Job One ! Going to go take some stock out of my freezer right now ! I’m so glad we are friends !

    Does anyone one do The Artists Way Morning Pages ? Do you think they help you succeed on your weight loss journey ? I love them as a creative practice but really wondering if they have impact on other areas too . Would love to hear some voices on it .

    I have hashimoto’s too. I have been losing weight slowly since November. I added in daily walks and yoga. It’s very slow but in the right direction and it all adds up.

    Blargh. Things are crazy lately, but not necessarily in a bad way. Back to back we have a trip to the lake with friends, our official 7yr Anniversary, and then family visiting with their 2yo (freaking adorable yes, but also exhausting for those of us without toddler energy). In the midst of all this we are working our typically atypical hours. So I haven't been very active but still trying to track so it doesn't get away from me. I mad a bad call with lunch today (ordered at a restaurant without checking the nutrition first) so I know I will be over in everything, but I'm going to get in a workout after work to help stave off a gain (hopefully).
    Hello to anyone I don't know yet, feel free to add me! (I'll be a better friend again after this week)

    I'm brand new here. I'm a 54 year old stoke survivor and was just diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I'm here to lose weight, get healthy and keep my diabetes in check. Please add me if you want some to take this journey with.

    Hi everyone. Is it normal that I weight 136-137 in the morning and during the day to the end of I weight 138 to 140. I don’t even eat 2000 calorie a day and I work out on the stairmaster for 20 to 40 minutes day I my include standing exercise. Did anyone of you got this problem, it’s been almost a month now. Good luck to all of you.
