  • Current weight (28-day average): 186.8? (I have been recording the same weight each day, as I cannot reliably weigh yet, but have been eating at or slightly under maintenance since the last weigh-in, so figure it's a conservative estimate.)

  • Thank you so much for starting this thread, and thanks to those who have contributed. I only noticed the absence of data on recipes just today, leading to the discovery that my bookmarks list is noticeably shorter... Does anyone out there have other recipes saved? It is so incredibly disappointing that the decision was…

  • Logging for a whole year. The good, the bad, and the ugly. No breaks, just honesty.
  • 9/1 I got it today. Exactly at 52 pounds down, and it's the one year anniversary of my return to logging. Well, the first weigh-in wasn't for a few days (4th), but I'm checking the box and moving on toward the 187.3 28-day average by the 30th. Currently at 194.7 on the average, so it will take some hard work this month to…

  • I put back some of the crackers I'd logged and was working on as an evening snack. I was about 3/4 through them when I realized I wasn't hungry anymore and figured why continue. What an odd experience to someone who generally doesn't get moments like this! (I often don't feel "not hungry"; rather, I am hungry unless I'm…
  • New petty reason to add to my personal list: Cosplay. I don't have a specific character I'm set on at this point, but there are several video game characters who are particularly inspiring, if I can get my body to an "athletic" build!
  • So I've backpedalled. A fair bit. New mini-goal: My restarting tracking MFP-versary is in 10 days. Looking to shave a few pounds off my current weight, to reach 52 pounds in 52 weeks. From there, the next numeric mini-goal will be reaching 187.3 lbs on the 28-day average. Hoping to reach this on or before September 30th,…

  • I appreciate the sentiment that I believe is behind your post, but I do know the difference between deficit/maintenance/surplus. Unfortunately, today saw me landing in surplus territory, even when averages over a week... The average weight has been playing catch-up, so it seems a bit like I'm losing, though I'm not right…

  • It may have taken nearly two months, but I'm pleased to announce that my 28-day average has now dropped below 190.0 lbs (189.4 today). Next up: Under 185.0 on the 28-day average. Then under 184.0, as that's my BMI cutoff to the top of being class I obese (one class closer to normal).

  • Hope you are all doing OK. Haven't been able to get into the community pages much this week due to app issues. It's pretty frustrating. Saturday Check-in Good news: Med adjustment moving things in a more stable direction, been able to stay within kcal budget. Adherence: Room for improvement yet again, but thankful that I'm…

  • One thing I wanted to throw in from personal experience is to look at how much and how well you are sleeping at night (or during the day if you're a night person). The issues I have personally experienced are increased exponentially when I'm not sleeping well, both quantity and quality considered. If you are struggling…
