  • Yeah, I am running into this road block now. Money is extremely tight. My husband starts a new job on October 4th so that is a huge relief. As it is, we haven't had consistent basics in the house for a little while. We don't have bread. I have been using Nido powered milk because we can't afford milk. We stocked up on…
  • In the last 3 months I have lost 34 pounds. I was 217 and am now 182. I actually feel skinny. At around 185 I started feeling my old normal. But my old normal used to be around 175 or so....weird huh? I feel like I'm 175 but I still have 10 more pounds to go to get there. At 185, years ago, I would feel like I was fat and…
  • This gives me hope. I have labs in a month. I have lost 34 pounds in the last 6 months since my last labs. I am hoping that weight puts everything into good range again. I am so anxious to see these results. But, in the mean time, I can do a bit more work. I still have 20 pounds to go. I can't knock that out in a month but…
  • I find that preparation time is sometimes a need.... time to just wrap your brain around the journey that you are about to embark on. That time is like packing before leaving on a trip. Leaving without packing might be doable but the trip would likely be a whole lot harder. Enjoy your trip in both senses!
  • My mini goal is to weigh in under 180 pounds here in the next couple of weeks. On October 8th I have my next appointment and I want to be closer to 170 before then. I need my blood work to improve...up in some places, down in others. I'm getting nervous as the appointment date gets here. So far I have dropped 15.2 percent…
  • The doctors scale is motivating me too. Last appointment I was obese. I finally got below obese a couple weeks ago. You got this!
  • I live on a farm and I gain and lose that same 10 pounds every year. If I don't lose that ten pounds of winter weight then it just keeps packing on. For the last couple years I have managed to lose it every year but a few years ago I started college and then the weight didn't fall off. That's why I'm here...trying to lose…
  • I was told I have kidney issues in April and I already had fibromyalgia. I feel you. I'm 38 though but I completely understand the pain from exercise and suddenly needing to change up diet and lose weight. That's why I'm here now. I am not focusing on exercise for my weightloss at the moment because of the pain. That's not…
  • One other thing. Part of the reason I stalled out was I took a job renovating a house. We had a ton of heavy lifting to do for a few weeks at first. I expected my weight loss to stall for a little bit there do to the added muscle gain. But then I burned out and slacked off of my diet. It sounds to me like you are gaining…
  • I stalled out too and then life got crazy and I slacked off a bit on my logging and diet. I still made mostly healthier choices but I was cheating a lot more. This went on for about two weeks. Then I jumped back on the weightloss journey. I had gained 2 pounds. But that two pounds dropped right off within a couple of days…
  • Getting out of the 190's can't be my goal anymore because I just did it! I guess my next goal will be to tackle 185. My vegetable garden is producing now so I am aiming to have one meal a day almost entirely produced out of my land (eggs count). Granted I can't produce salt and olive oil but I can do what I can do. Trying…
  • I also am not vaxed (well I am prior military...I have had tons of vaxs just not this one) and had covid last October when delta was going around. My whole neighborhood got it even though I stayed clear of all of them so they didn't get it from me. My double vaxed neighbor got it from his work for the second time. He…
  • My pants, skirt, and shorts hardly stay up anymore. I have another 30 pounds to go yet though so I'm holding off on getting new stuff yet.
  • Great job! This where I am at too. I'm at 192.6 at the moment. Strayed off the path for a couple weeks there. Gained a couple back but they fell off as soon as I started back up...likely water weight. Hope to be under 190 here in a couple weeks.
  • BTW I've lost 24 pounds and have 30 more to go.
  • I have been on my fitnesspal off and on for years. Gained friends, lost friends. It is nice to have friends when we can but remember thar myfitnesspal is a tool. There is no shame in jumping on and off when we need to. I fell off of my plan for a couple weeks recently. Life has a way of side tracking you. But I'm back on…
  • Wow! My goal weight is 164. My starting weight was 217! I'm female though but I came here for inspiration and want expecting the exact same story lol I'm only half way there though. Great job! Thanks for posting!
  • 2 more pounds and I am no longer considered obese by scale. I say "by scale" because as a female, I truly do have more muscle than most females. My time in the Navy proved this when I would fail our bi-annual weigh-in at 10 pounds over my accepted weight yet when taped, I passed just fine. 4 more pounds and I will be…
  • A neighbor I haven't seen in a while asked me if I'm losing weight. I had never told him I was trying to. Almost to the 25 pounds lost mark.
  • Great job!
  • I injured my knee running in the military. THEY push a person sometimes more than one should go. Tore my meniscus. I eventually tore the other meniscus, I believe due to the military neglecting the first one as long as they did. Therefore, I'm not fond of running anymore. Being told at 24 years old that I will definitely…
  • I'm not always motivated. This last week I have been working my butt off trying to help someone move. I have been watching my calories too. But it seems that the day I started helping my friend clean up to move, my weight loss stopped. While it might be water weight or muscle gain...it's still frustrating that the scale…
  • Thank you! I don't think I have any links. I'm sorry. Mostly just been keeping my food journal and commenting on my page. I am at 198.2 on day 52. I am happy with my progress so far. I have some medical issues that I go in for blood work in October for. I am hoping a healthy diet and normal BMI will help correct these…
  • There are videos on YouTube for walking in your home. I have found a couple that look very doable. I haven't tried them yet though. You might want to look those up and start off with a very easy one. Even if you can just do ten minutes here and then ten minutes there. You really should talk to a doc though. I know that is…
  • Keep going! Oddly enough, I started at 217 pounds on April 8th or 9th and my goal is around 164 pounds by October. I have stalled out this week. Been doing a lot of work helping a neighbor move (3-4 hrs a day). It involves a lot of heavy lifting and moving none stop. We're practically packing a man's homestead to move two…
  • I worked on a neighbors homestead for roughly 4 hours today. Needed a lot of extra calories and protein. This salad has 2 ounces of cheese, 6.75 ounces of grilled chicken with BBQ glaze, 2 cups (roughly) of salad mix, 2 ounces of Brawells Creamy Vidalia Onion dressing, 4 tablespoons of classic croutons, and a seed blend…
  • One more thing. We have chickens so we have a lot of eggs. This year we have been saving the shells, drying them thoroughly, and then grind them in a blender until almost powdery. We saved the ground up shells in a half gallon mason jar and used two or three tablespoons(while it lasted) into each hole while planting our…
