  • Yes & Yes & Yes- - -2 pass days taken I am so pleased to have reestablished those good habits. I have to take October off, but look forward to participating again in November. Congrats to ALL the winners, and a hearty well done! And to all the pluggers, good on you for sticking in there, you did not fail. "You have not…
  • I was looking for ideas, too. Pretty sure I want an incline/decline bench rather than a flat bench. I am just beginning to lift and I have read that incline bench presses are safer for you than flat bench presses. Also, I just don't plan on lifting truly heavy weights, so I don't need something that handles massive…
  • cheese enchiladas, like, a whole 9 x 13 pan of them
  • @springerling62 oh my, that does sound like great fun. I would probably have begged to groom those wonderful steeds. I think horses are the most beautiful animal in all their amazing varieties. I have seen the power and beauty of a herd of horses thundering across a mesa in Colorado, and the amazing Lipizaners performance,…
  • Did I exercise for at least 20 minutes? No Did I stay within my calorie budget for the day? Yes Did I keep track of everything I ate and drank?

  • Wow! Didn't expect that much response! I do appreciate the conveniences, especially when I am pressed for time. When I worked full-time it would have been dreadful to have to do those things. But now that DH and I are retired I have found great delight in practicing what I learned when we were first married and poor. We…
  • cheese enchiladas-MY cheese enchiladas, I have NO control, zero, nada, zip!
  • @sijomial I wonder what you would have thunk of me counting doing laundry using a scrub board today??? 😜 I am a throwback that likes my white dishcloths and towels WHITE and the stupid new front load washers just don't get them clean. Hence, I have turned into an old-fashioned washer woman.

  • @isumner170 great job! Your posture is improving, good to see you lose the slouch!
  • 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼 Winner's Circle 👍🏼😎 "The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don't define them, learn about them, or even seriously consider them as believable or achievable.

  • Did I exercise for at least 20 minutes? ✓ Did I stay within my calorie budget for the day? ✓ Did I keep track of everything I ate and drank? ✓ Nothing special for Sunday dinner. Tonight was leftovers because we were both uninterested in cooking. Other times we get on a tear and cook like Julia Child! Most times I prep the…
  • @curtisbk3 I am so glad that was helpful. Don't remember where I saw/read that, but if I can think of anything else that might help you to stick with it I will definitely share it. Since you are keeping your efforts private from your "real" life, perhaps a friend or two that you could message for help would be good?…
  • @neffaria Welcome to MFP and hopefully a new way to look at food. As a beginner you really don't want to try to do EVERYTHING right in a single day. Make little changes that you can live with. You have done that with walking, and what a good way to begin. As far as food goes, does what you eat matter? It can, but in the…
  • @curtisbk3 just wondering, would it help you to put post-it notes on your refrigerator and snack cabinet to remind you not to eat mindlessly? And perhaps post-it notes that suggest alternatives to over-eating? I have heard that with ADHD it can help to "see" the reminders to change your focus. If you can change your focus…
  • @FeelingFroggy13 Wow, you look great! Love your Giant Jack or Jill in the before photo <3
  • @russellholtslander1 thank you for your kind wishes. This plan is really geared toward pre- to post-menopausal women. It isn't a "diet" it is an approach. Pahla Bowers advocates for a slow weight-loss rather than fast, and encourages consistency and moderation in both calories and exercise. She also encourages…
  • @sollyn23l2 I did read her post, and sympathize deeply with her plight. But really, other than telling us how many calories she was doing and what she is now doing really isn't enough information, is it? Her username makes it sound as if she enjoys working out. If that is so, and she is only trying to lose 20 pounds, then…
  • Whenever a newbie asks for help I encourage them to join the UAC. I truly believe that forming good habits can help overcome inertia when will-power and motivation fail. UAC has helped me develop the best habits of staying within my caloric allowance by tracking daily, and exercising daily. Those that participate in this…

Yes "Sharing knowledge is not about giving people something, or getting something from them. That is only valid for information sharing. Sharing knowledge occurs when people are…
  • @Workoutsnotwhisky why are you trying to lose so fast, or are you really tiny? Did you set it for 2 pounds a week loss? Slow down, hon. 1200 is pretty much the minimum for preventing starvation. If you do any exercise, you need more.
  • @AnnPT77 You have no idea how much you just made my day. I have read your posts, and seen the changes you made. Madam, you have my deep respect! Now that I've brown-nosed you to death, I have to say that I truly do respect your opinion. And I agree very much that each person has to deal with their own metabolism as it…
  • @AnnPT77 @paperpudding Pahla B propounds that most of us are so conditioned to the "eat less, move more" that we try to eat too little and exercise too much all at once, which can lead to fatigue and failure to comply. Her basic recommendation is to be content with 1/2 lb. per week loss and not such severe calorie…

  • Not technically, but sorta. I don't eat before lunch and stop at 8 pm because it causes heartburn if I do. There are variances, but that is my usual pattern. I also prefer 2 meals and 2 snacks.
  • Okay @MDubbery , @thnksfrthmmrsjx, and @talltrees500 here's the thing. Y'ALL QUIT SMOKING!!! Terrific, wonderful, great job! Really, it is such a hard thing to do. I have been quit for 5 years and it was one of the best, but harder things I have done. Now for the reality. Losing weight is harder. Let that sink in. There is…

  • @PatDMuddle to add friends you click on their name under their profile picture, then click it again in the pop-up window it will give you the option to add as friend. If you want that person to see you mentioned them in a post, you have to put the @ in front of their user name, like I did with yours
  • @jamcnewman hoping your visit with the nutritionist is nothing but positive! Puppy dog noses are meant to be booped! Hope they made you smile. :)
