  • I thought I'd chim in. It's been a while since I shared on here. I've been busy doing the 5% challenge and then I joined the Half Size Me academy & it wasn't easy to be involved in both & had to find a good time for HSM. I've listened to the podcasts & on YouTube for couple years and am doing my best to be involved there &…

  • @AnnPT77 wow, that's so many bothersome things at once, so sorry, will pray you get it all resolved. I know what you mean about getting older, my body sure doesn't ask permission or even warn me about what's coming & some things I just have to live with & adjust my expectations. @ByeByetoDiabetes I'm sure you'll get…

  • It's been a while since I've checked in here. How are you now @AnnPT77 ? I've had "mystery" symptoms in the last 2 years but this last one they figured out what it is & I'm going to PT next week & it should clear up (I hope)I've been doing the 5% challenge on here (MFP) since last summer & it takes up most of my computer…
  • Hello, I'm looking forward to the next challenge. I've only found it last summer & love doing it. @CateAussie it's fun. Your dog is so cute. I love dogs, we have 5. don't give up anything you don't want to to lose weight unless it's for a medical reason. Eat with a maintenance mindset, that is eat the things you would for…
  • @Dianedoessmiles1 before I got laid off, I got off at 11:30 too for years but I used to get to bed asap after I got home. I was never a night person & got up at 8, walked the dogs & made dinner before work. Even though I'm not working late anymore, I still tend to stay up till 11:30. Love your kitties I would tell my…
  • We had so much rain but needed this winter in California but it's been lovely weather the past week & 70's this coming week. I've been able to spend much time outside walking my dogs, taking them to the parks & cleaning the patio. I finally got rid of all the leaves but forgot till my husband reminded me that our patio…

  • How many 5% Challenges have you done? Started last summer, so 3 What do you like to do for fun? I love the outdoors & reading What major city do you live in or near? State? Central California What are you health/fitness goals for this season? I've been maintaining but wouldn't mind losing 5 more lbs but my main goal is to…
  • I use Egg Beaters instead of eggs, thin cut cheese 70cal, or sometimes process cheese slice 40cal/ unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 0% plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream but also for eating...I add a flavor to it for a dessert & couple Tbl of cool whip, turkey sausage instead of beef/pork, ground turkey instead of…
  • I usually check in after dinner, before I get ready for the evening & after I tidy up the kitchen, wash my face & put on my lounge clothes. I really do need to work on scheduling my strength training at home workout, it's a newer habit so it's been challenging to find the right time to fit it into my routine. I spend…
  • In my meal plan I aim for the most protein I can get for each day...(I do eat the other macros too) sometimes what I make has a lot of protein, when not I add protein by having plain yogurt &/or cottage cheese for snack. As far as planning what to cook/eat ahead, I've always done this because I don't like to figure it out…
  • My goal for the next year is to cut down on fats & eat veggies every day. I do eat veggies but when I run out I tend not to get some more right away. My fats are over the recommend amount & I have to figure out how to get them down. I already started but I want to learn much more how & where to do it in my meal plan

  • Happy late birthday @AnnPT77 . I am sorry you have a cold. My favorite thing at the gym was the rowing machine but I had to stop because my arms/shoulder was getting achy due to a pinched nerve I had. The PT said after you have one the area is weak & there's a chance it could happen again & it was very painful. I put a…
  • Good Saturday morning to you all, just wanted to say hello. It's a rainy day here but not cold. Glad I got my walk with the dogs in this morning before the rain. Today is a no excuse day to do some much needed cleaning/organizing...I spend more time outdoors so don't get around to doing much besides maintenance & cooking…
  • I'm so sorry what your coworker is going through & her husband @Tabatha_Cain . I worked in ICU for 10 years. I will keep her in my prayers. So good of you to offer help, especially since you clash. My father never wanted to go into a nursing home so when he saw people in his house that weren't there, we moved our family of…
  • Welcome Kerry good to have you
  • Good afternoon to you all. I'm so glad that it's finally cooled down here in central California. I so enjoy going out in the afternoon for more walking & enjoying nature
  • I'm mentally ready to go through my closet. There's many things in there I like & have kept them because I think I'll wear them sometimes but haven't worn them for couple years, mostly some dressy tops but I have no where to wear them any more so.....I'm going to do my best to donate them. Wish me luck
  • maintaining weight is always better than gaining, no matter what weight you are. It's important to learn how to maintain. I maintained 198 lbs for years before I started losing
  • Happy Wednesday everyone. The weather here has been cooling down. It's been in the mid 80's with a few high 70's. woo hoo! I'm going to get some warm lounge pants for hubby & a few sweaters so he won't get the house up to the 80's inside this winter. He gets cold & I get too hot. I'm still sleeping with the window open,…
  • I still don't feel much smaller after losing 50lbs & I'm surprised when I look in the mirror
  • Activity #2 goals: my main goal is to get back to strength training (I've already started) had to stop due to health reasons (recovery from minor surgeries, injuries etc) I've been in maintenance but would love to lose about 7-8 more lbs. Also it keeps me accountable & share with like minded people
  • I used to be a mindless eater in the form of potato chips mostly but since I've lost weight I'm very mindful of my snacks & plan them. I also plan my meals. I was a fast eater( mostly because we only had 30min to eat at work) but have slowed down & drink sips of almond milk/water in between bites & try to take my time. I'm…
  • I took a long break from posting in any groups I was in in MFP but have been back for a short time though I did still log in here. When I was young I used to wonder at older people who talked about their "mallady's" and now I'm one of them lol Been going through many "non fatal" malady's but still some painful ones but am…
