  • Well, this rollercoaster is getting really annoying! I have been sick with and recovering from a really nasty head cold, this week, so I've been letting myself just eat whatever and whenever I feel like it. Though I haven't been eating huge amounts, nor have I been eating excessively bad things. I was expecting some gain…
  • STARTING WEIGHT AND DATE WITH MFP(MY FITNESS PAL): 27th March 2022 220lbs YOUR CHALLENGE STARTING WEIGHT FOR THIS CHALLENGE: 215.4 lbs YOUR CHALLENGE WEIGHT LOSS GOAL: 205 lbs Ahhh, yes, allow me to explain . . . last week I had a large gain of almost 4 lbs. I knew I was dealing with some swelling around my abdomen and put…
  • Well this week has been rough. I've had some mental and physical health issues happening and so it's shown on the scale. My digestive system has been very unhappy, but I'm not lying when I say I'm shocked at the numbers this morning. I know it'll mostly be water, my abdomen and other areas of my body are bloated / swollen…
  • I have been wearing 'pull over' soft bras for the longest time because they were all I could be remotely comfortable in. The day before yesterday I went and got out one of my old (but still perfectly wearable - not like brand new, but still looks decent) regular bras and not only did it fit me pretty well, but I didn't…

  • Hi again everyone!!! I'm so ready for this! I've fiddled and faffed around with losing and gaining the same few lbs, so time to kick things up a gear and get down to dropping some more of this weight! 🥳😄👍 BEST OF LUCK TO EVERYONE FOR THE NEW CHALLENGE!

  • Hi there! Gosh! what a beautiful place to hike in! Thankyou so much for your kind comment. I'm keeping this thread as a motivator and a record for myself, so when I have anything to say about how the process is going, it'll be posted here. Sounds like you're well on your way to achieving your goals, so keep up the good…
  • Thankyou so much. Congratulations on learning to jump back into the weight loss groove. It took me like 20 years to learn to have the discipline to do it. it's really not an easy thing to just 'flip the switch ' and get back on track . Hope you had a fantastic 4th and I wish you all the best in achieving your goals. 🙂👍
  • So here's an update, just to keep a log of where I'm at and what I'm doing. These are in no particular order, just as I think of them. Overall weight loss -25lbs. MFP weight loss -7lbs since April 2022. The good stuff! : 1) I achieved my main goal for this year which is to drop a dress size. I am now fitting well into size…
  • Hi! Sorry about your dog. Being upset is a real trigger for me to 'eat to soth my hurts'. So I can empathise. Congratulations for realising though and getting back to working on your weight loss goals! That takes a lot of determination, especially if you're not feeling awesome about life. I'm sure you'll be back down to…
  • Hi There! Yes! That's exactly how I still feel. I wish you all the best in reaching your goals! You can do it! :)
  • My husband received his salary bonus this month, so he gave me some money from it as a late Birthday gift. I rarely buy myself new clothes, so ordered a couple of new items online. When they arrived I was astounded to find that they were on the large side!! So I went into the bottom of my closet and found the charity shop…
  • Hooray! Things finally moving in the right direction again! PArt of the loss will be TOM water weight for sure, but not all. I've been more vigilant with my food this week, honestly though my anxiety has been playing a part because there have been times when I just haven't felt hungry, so I suppose unconciously I've ben…
  • Thankyou very much and congratulations on all your hard work paying off! I'm still working on it. Slowly and surely, I'll get there. Best of luck with your last 10lbs! :)
  • Hello! Thankyou for your kind words. Yes it was a very tough 3 years! You're right though, it's now time for me to look after myself again. I'm hoping that this is the beginning of me taking my own health and wellbeing much more seriously. Ultimately I'm the only one who can make changes to myself, which will continue to…
  • Hello! Thankyou for checking in with me. I hope you're doing well? I'm still going, I'm still being careful with how much I eat, logging calories and I'm trying to move around a little more. I haven't had weight loss on the scales for 2 weeks, but I can already see changes in my body. This shows that ( I already kinda knew…
  • Urgh!! so frustrating to have gained this week. I am holding some water weight though, thanks to TOM, but I really need to tighten up my eating, to get the scales moving downward again!! April 10: 15st 10.6lbs. April 17: 15st 8.6lbs / 218.6lbs/ 99.2kg (-2lbs) April 24: 15st 7.4lbs / 217.4lbs/ 98.7kg (-1.2lbs) Total loss…
  • I'm ok with this tiniest of gains this week, my Fibromyalgia symptoms have been flaring and that means my brain desperately wants to take in more calories because it thinks my body is in crisis (it's not, my body imagines it is, but it's self-induced) , so my eating hasn't been as good as the previous weeks. IT's ok, I'm…
  • Really pleased to have lost weight again this week. :p I've been consistent with logging food and making it as accurate as I can. Portion control is key for me at the moment, when I lose more weight I'm sure that macros will come into play much more and adjustment of the constituents of my meals will too. But for now,…
  • Aww thankyou!
  • Thankyou!
  • Ok so I reaiise I goofed with my first check in last week. I was in the 15's not the 16's range lol! I used to be in the 16's last year and my brain still automatically goes there ! Anyways I'm so excited with a loss this week! I've been stuck in the 15st 10 range for a while, so it's nice to see it go down to the 15st 8…
  • Yup, me too. News feed is non existent. Only the box to Email Friends. It's a real pain!!
  • Hey @Janatki ! Of course I'll add you as a friend! Thankyou for putting yourself on the front lines of healthcare for us. Your hard work and care is very much appreciated. <3
  • Excellent, well done! Yeah I'm doing alright thanks. This isn't the first time I've used mfp, but honestly I'm so sick of being overweight, that tracking what I'm eating will keep me responsible and hopefully get me some results. I've already lost a few lbs by myself and I'm not at my highest weight ever, or anything, but…
  • Hi there! I'm in the UK too. Currently North West England, but got here after 15 years in Glasgow - my soul misses it terribly!! Gonnae add ye as a pal. :# Best of luck with your goals man!! <3
  • Thankyou so much @roz0810 :# Hi to everyone and here's to our success! <3 I have a higher SW, but my MFP SW is 16st10.6lbs / 220.6lbs/ 100kg I don't doubt that my body will be kind of stubbourn at the beginning, but then start losing weight slowly. I'm set for 0.5lbs per week. I don't have a target weight date in mind…
  • Hey there Kerrie!!! Nice to meet you! Looks like we have similar circumstances regarding exercise. How have you been getting on?
