    @TerriRichardson112 I like your Creativity focus.

    @enlightenme3 I just looked at your app that you mentioned. It does look great, especially that it would help a lot for multiple kinds of lists and other productivity needs!

    I use the free FlyLady Plus app that was developed by FlyLady's nephew and has very simple checklists that are customizable, and are specific to the FlyLady system.

    I'm using the FlyLady system to help me get back to or to get better with my daily housekeeping routines again, and also to help me get back to the tidy/ declutter habits that have been "misplaced" 🤦‍♀️ because of the busy last several months.

    🦋 means that I completed what I needed or wanted to do that day.

    [*] Reduce Fat%: 29.3; 27.1; 25.1; 24.5; 24.2 23.4 21%

    @TerriRichardson112 - are you focusing on body fat % or percentage of fat in your diet? If the former, how are you measuring? I've always been curious about mine, but thought that it was something a doctor or gym with special equipment had to do.
    I keep an eye on my %age body fat and adjust my diet if it begins to rise. My digital scale measures a range of stats which includes %age fat and muscle. I did a 3 month Bodytrax course at our local gym, and their fancy machine confirmed the figures from my scale.

    Not sure if I responded to this. Feeling really great now I'm focusing more on getting back to hving accountability around my habits. I've decided this month to just use this group to record my results daily instead of using a habit tracker. Seems to be working well as more efficient!!! Thanks for asking. Hope all is well with u.

    This June I will ... progress towards a lifestyle change.

    I'm 50+ and weigh around 250 lbs; otherwise healthy and physically active with love of the outdoors; exploring the OMAD lifestyle with a Low Carb component to help truly kick in the weight loss. Besides, much of the research I've explored indicates it is a good lifestyle choice to make when in the 50+ category and physically active.

    Seeking like-minded MFP "Friend's" to help encourage; educate; and support each other along our respective journeys

    My habit for this month will be to focus on learning to teach my intake better while fine tuning a workout regimen. I am new to this group and looking forward to figuring out the ins and outs of it all, as my daughter reminds me daily I am not a tech savvy person. But learning nutrition and working on a workout plan to start this journey is a start to my new lifestyle change.

    Habit for June 2022: Tracking my Food with MFP

    Have been doing well since June 1st, but last night was tricky with a little extras at a book club meeting. I estimated foods this morning instead of giving up on yesterday as a whole entry.

    Even though tracking food has never felt appealing to me, I REALLY think it is a great habit to cultivate—-even if it’s not forever because i definitely have mindless/overeating/emotional eating habits that continually cycle around and keep me from maintenance phase for weight and fitness. Instead? Always feels a bit “all or nothing”. For example, I’ve worn every women’s size from 2-16 in my adult life!!! I just want to get that sustainable weight—-probably around a size 8….and be in habits that are so ingrained, I don’t keep feeling the rollercoaster ride.

    This June I will - focus on reducing and hopefully eliminating my diet coke habit and get back into tracking (was great for over 140 days then started exercising and gave up). I have to find a way to get exercise in that is something I can do forever. I have been tracking monthly averages:

    Dec - started tracking - eating around 3500-4000 calories a day. took out eating out for breakfast and lunch
    Jan - down to around 2300 per day
    Feb - Down to around 1950 per day (ideal) added exercise
    Mar - up to 2400 average per day No more exercise - eating lunch out
    April - back up to around 3200 per day No more exercise -eating lunch out
    May - Eating average of 3500-4000 per day when I bothered to check. Sporadic inconsistent not challenging exercise. eating lunch out

    June - Fresh start.

    @PackerFanInGB Yay! I am super happy to see you here 💐🤸‍♀️. I've also been grateful for everyone's patience with me popping in and going MIA too.
    Sometimes the struggles are on the overwhelming side, but I am so glad that I also have a safe landing space to come back to. Which is why I am happy to see you here 💗 and be here to say it.

    MadisonMolly2017 Awwww 💗. Thank you so much for the kind and encouraging words for us 💗.

    Some additional thoughts:
    Even after all these years I still often get hung up in the all or nothing perfectionism trap. So I'm trying to recognize that when it tries to sneak up on me this time around.

    🦋 means that I completed what I needed or decided to do today.

    My May habit had 4 main results.
    • Positive feedback throughout the day of what I am actually accomplishing.
    • Massive reduction in negative thinking and pressure to ‘succeed’.
    • Motivation to do more little jobs and add to the list.
    • Valuable insight into my solid daily habits, and where they can be improved.
    It gave me much food for thought for this month.
    June Focus: CREATIVITY
