  • Hi @laurahays764 welcome to MFP! You sync your watch to MFP via the health app on your phone. You have to go in and change the privacy settings for your watch to sync with MFP. I can share screen shots if you can’t figure out how. Steps will sync automatically. If you’re doing an exercise, you have to touch the little…
  • Barcode scanning isn’t what it’s cracked up to be. I just scanned a package of sundried tomatoes. I got “cottage pie”. 🤦🏻‍♀️ In all honesty, it’s just easier to look for the food, or enter the details myself.
  • ”Senior” female, weight train, and myriad other activities. I eat often, sometimes heavy, sometimes light. You could say I’m on a “special diet”. It’s a darn sight more special than it was a person-and-a-half ago. Familiarity is the key. Invest in learning the app, same as you’ve invested in learning proper lifting form.…

  • Have you considered pre-logging? Before I go to bed, I pre-log at least the next day, if not two or three or more out. I know what times I’ll get peckish, and I know when my workouts will need to be fueled. I plan meals and snack accordingly. I do a slow drip of food all day long, including four or five snacks or desserts.…
  • If you’re on the iOS app, you simply swipe left. Otherwise, at the very top of the diary page, there’s an “edit” button. Touch that and scroll down and delete either the specific food or the whole meal by selecting the adjacent radio button, scroll back to the top and mark “complete”. Selected food(s) will be deleted. Be…
  • This doesn’t make sense. If you’ve synced a fitness tracker to MFP, the tracker is telling MFP what the burn is, not vice versa. MFP is simply a blank slate to record the tracker info to. Sounds like an issue with the Garmin sync. Sorry, I’m an Apple Watch user so can’t tell you diddly about Garmin. But maybe try…
  • Yes!!!!! It wasn’t nearly as hard as I expected it to be. The “hard” came from expecting it to be hard, and waiting, tensed, for it to be hard.
  • I hate to state the usual, but try deleting the app and reinstalling. Irritating as hades, but works for me when I have problems. Oddly, I don’t have a single friend reporting this particular problem. Ours is glitchy friends feed.
  • My money is that you can do it, since you’re motivated and you’ve set a very reasonable goal. If you’re on suppressants, make sure you’re learning new techniques, skills and changing thought patterns so you can continue and maintain your loss once you’re ready to come off them. So many people reach goal, throw up their…
