  • I have maintained my loss for almost 3 years now. I joined MFP and started weighing and logging my food. I started eating healthier and more appropriate portions and I got up off the couch and started moving more with joining the gym. At 43 years old, I loss 100 lbs from January 11th to September 15th of 2017(It took me 8…
  • Welcome and wishing you all the best with your goal! You can do it! They say 21 days sets a new habit in place... you're over half way there!
  • The community part of MFP is huge! Finding like minded friends who enjoy/share some of the same interests as you that are looking to improve their health/lifestyle is of the utmost importance. I honestly thing it is a huge factor in success. For this reason I keep an 'active & small' friends list. If you feel portion…
  • Y'all can do it!! Get your mind set and don't let anyone/anything deter you! Believe in yourself, Set a Long Term Goal, Set your first Short Term Goal and then Push for it!! Never Look Back!
  • If you are finding you're still feeling hungry often, it might help to increase your protein & fiber intake. Also making sure you are drinking plenty of water. When I feel like I need something more.... I find a cup of coffee (flavored) often does the trick for me. I use Sugar Free Italian Sweet Cream Creamer and one…
  • You've done a great job with your loss! Congrats. You're looking great! You'll reach your goal... just keep pushing!!
  • You have done a great job!! Congratulations on your loss. I must say, you look much more confident and younger.
  • Awesome work!! Congrats on your loss!
  • I feel 100x better. I'm definitely healthier and yes, happier too. Thank you for that very kind compliment.
  • I have approached maintenance a little differently than most. I guess you could say I've sorta stayed in weight loss mode. What I mean by that is this... I take my weekends off. I may or maynot get intentional exercise in. I typically don't weigh/log my food. BUT come Monday morning... I get back on the scale, weigh and…

  • I have sustained my loss for almost 3 years now, but I have gone about maintenance a little different than most. I loss 100 lbs from January 11th to September 15th of 2017. Once I reached goal (100 lb loss) I started taking my weekends off. I wouldn't gorge myself, but I ate more freely, no weighing or logging any meals &…
  • THIS. This is how I have sustained my loss for almost 3 years now. I loss 100 lbs from January 11th to September 15th of 2017. Once I reached goal (100 lb loss) I started taking my weekends off. I wouldn't gorge myself, but I ate more freely, no weighing or logging any meals & usually avoiding the scales to weigh myself.…
  • You guys can do it!! I lost just over 100 lbs from January 11th, 2017 to September 15, 2017.... exactly 8 months and 4 days. I changed what I ate and how much and I started moving. I was a complete couch potato who had convinced myself that I was going to be overweight my entire life and losing weight was impossible. I…
  • I have no doubt you can kick the weight right back off...you've proven you already know how. I think MFP will always play part in my life. I have taken most weekends off (not logging food, if I exercise good and if not.. that's okay too and eating a little more freely but not gorging myself) since reaching maintenance back…
  • I just want to offer some encouragment for all of you... You can do this! Surround yourself with like minded individuals... folks that will motivate, inspire, encourage and challenge you. Set yourself a long term goal (sounds like most of you already have that covered) and then set mini goals. Try to move a little every…
  • Started MFP January 2017 and loss 100 lbs in 8 months and 4 days (Sept 15, 2017). I have maintained and actually dropped more since. My method of maintaining is a bit different than most. Since reaching the 100 lb loss, I usually take my weekends off from logging. I eat more freely over the weekend, but not gorging myself.…
  • You can do it!! IMO, you're already starting off on the right foot by having a long term goal and setting mini goals.
  • You can do it. You've set yourself a goal. Now set yourself some mini goals to reach that main goal. Take progess pictures on a regular basis. No one has to see them but you. BUT they'll be a huge asset to you as you move forward. Sometimes the scale doesn't give you the info you desire and being able to compare your…
  • I'd also like to suggest that you may want to increase your protein and fiber intake. Higher amounts of protein and fiber can help you help you feel full & satisifed longer. Keep pushing! You can do it.
  • Allow me to be one of the first to welcome you back to MFP. You can do this! Keep your focus and set a long term goal with mini goals along the way. :)
  • You are doing great. Stay the course. Keep your focus and surround yourself with motivational people who will encourage and challenge you.
  • Despite the MFP blurps when the app and website get slow or go completely down... it's been a HUGE factor in my weight loss. I dropped 100 lbs in 8 months and 4 days and MFP was a HUGE resource allowing me to log my food and receive encouragement and inspiration from other MFP friends. I have maintained that loss for more…
  • Y'all can do it!! Set short term goals to reach that final goal. Take LOTS of progress pictures!
  • I also call BS!!! I loss more than 100 lbs back in 2017 and I have maintained that loss plus dropped more since. You can check this thread out for more details on my weight loss if you are interested... https://community.myfitnesspal.com/en/discussion/10603791/more-than-100-lbs-loss-in-8-months-4-days/p1
  • Congratulations on your loss!! Your hard work is showing! You are literally glowing now and your confidence certainly shows!! Keep going girl!! You've Got This!!! Super proud of you and your dedication!! It is all worth it and then some!!
  • Y'all got this!! Set your mind to it and nothing and no one can stop you. Take progress pictures... lots!! No one has to see them but you. They will show you change when the scale might not be showing you want you want to see. Focus. Set Goals. Go Get Them!! Wishing each of you the best!! You CAN do it!!
  • You are doing absolutely wonderful!! Your hard work and dedication shows. Just keep your focus and continue pushing! You Got This!! You should be so proud of yourself. I know what it takes and I am proud of you!!
  • Before Christmas (12/20) I was 151.4 and Monday morning (12/30) I was 159.6. Yes... you read that correctly. I knew a good amount was sodium/water weight as my body grabs hold of it like crazy. BUT I also knew some was actual weight gain too. Back to my regular workouts and healthier eating since Monday morning and as of…
  • First of all, Congrats on your upcoming wedding!!! Secondly, seeing the number on the scale shift in our desired direction is always uplifting, BUT it doesn't tell everything! If you've moved down two belt holes... Girl, YOU ARE DOING IT!! Strength training can make so many changes and you need to remember that one very…
  • You can do it girl!! No one at home jumped onboard with me either. I did get complimented as time went on, but I was and am the only one living the 'healthier lifestyle'. I think doing it alone might have been more challenging... but it also speaks measures of our commitment and dedication too. Congrats on your success…
