  • My 3 month progress photo! 20 pounds down. Nowhere where I want to be, but it's a start! Just take a deep breath and take it one step at a time. Im hoping to be a success story too, but at least for now I'm a step further most days 🙂
  • Thank you for your reply! I'm in the same boat. I don't want to call it a food addiction, but it is really difficult to make the changes even with meal prep/meal planning. I'm a bit of an emotional eater too, so I've been working on my mental health as well as my physical health so hopefully I'll start to see a difference…
  • Thank you for this. I just switched to part time at work and am a full time student. I also started seeing a therapist and started an SSRI so I'm hoping the emotional aspects of my food cravings will lessen or at least that I will have the mental willpower to not give in to them. I gave in on Monday and was horrified to…
  • Recognize how crappy*
  • Thanks for the replies! For whatever reason, if I wake up before six I'm extremely nauseous whether I eat something or not and it's been that way for years. I've gotten the mini pouches of unsweetened applesauce to eat before I work out, and it helps some but not a whole lot. On the nutrition side of things, I feel like…
  • So I made the marinade as a recipe. The actual recipe I'm making is for 5, so I made the marinade's serving size 5 as well. When I logged it, I logged half a serving. Does that seem fair?
  • Yeah, I have a food scale and weigh everything. I've never been much of a snacker - my weight gain is because I have been addicted to coca-cola forever plus two hip surgeries and gaps of being inactive. Lol Thanks, I just bought regular peanut butter because I was using pb powder.
  • Usually I'm a little short, but I'm following a 1300 calorie diet and have trouble meeting all my calories after exercise
  • Well I tried two different calculators and they said: 130g carbs 178g protein 47g fat So to get it to equal 100% on MFP I just set it to: 90g carbs 150g protein 27g fat Does that seem right?
  • Lol, I understand that -- I just don't understand what my numbers should be then.
  • I'm interested! I'm 22 and I weigh 217 now, started at 227. I'll send a request!
  • Hi! I am from Michigan but I'd love to be online buddies! I am in the same boat -- my boyfriend is supportive but doesn't really tend to listen and talk things through with me. I know I am not in NJ, but feel free to add me if you'd like
  • Add me if you'd like! I have found that the only time I am successful is when a friend and I hold each other accountable -- I just haven't found a friend that will stick with it with me.
  • Sorry, I should have included that info in the original post! I have birth defects in my hips (bone spurs in the joint that tear the cartilage apart), and have had two surgeries on my left hip and have developed arthritis in the lumbar region of my spine as a result of my hips never properly carrying my weight and working…
