Well it only took 6 years but I gained the 40lbs I lost back. Since 2020 I’ve been on a destructive journey! After my father passed I basically didn’t care about my weight or wellbeing. I quit walking or working out. Then my middle sister passed away last fall and I really didn’t care if I was over weight! I was content…
My 6th Week on the Acid Watchers Diet after a diagnoses of LPR
Today I am in week 6 of following the Acid Watchers Diet to heal my severe throat irritation due to Laryngopharyngeal Reflux (LPR). It's not easy to follow, but the acute reaction to triggers is motivating and I want to heal myself. I think following the plan in the book and the cookbook is helpful in that it not only…
New Plan is Working
I posted end of February that I was back to try and get my weight in control, but then I didn't really have a plan. My doctor referred me to a dietician and it took a few sessions for me to finally accept and realize that at least part of my weight and eating problem was related to carbs. Now, I hate extreme diets and…

We all see some beautiful sights on our various runs, walks, bikes, paddleboards, kayaks, canoes, horses, mastodons. Here’s a thread where we can share some of these special places.

58 and trying (yet again) to get myself in shape
Hi, I just turned 58 and while I make fits and starts toward getting myself in better shape, nothing sticks. I would like to say I've struggled with my weight, but it's like I'm frustrated and fluctuate between ignoring it and raging at it. I was a super skinny kid. I ate what I wanted, and in high school (class of 1983),…
Let’s get this group moving.
I keep sending friends request to then look at how old them posts are. I just turned 54. Im just doing one day at a time. Nice and steady.

Hi All, New here. Just started MFP last week and discovered the Groups today. Coming up on 55 and wishing I had taken a healthy diet and exercise seriously when I was younger. Fortunately, I am making the change now!
Some of us are lucky enough to be actually or semi retired. I'm presently retired for the second time (the first lasted two days) since May 20th, 2017. I'll likely go back to part time or a couple months on/off in the fall, but for now, I'm enjoying the first break excluding vacations in 41 years. I'm getting lots of long…
