  • I had a bypass way back in 2002 and I hate to say it but I never put in the effort that I should have. I started out at 425 lbs. and managed to get all the way down to 195 but slowly I allowed all my old habits to creep back in and by the time 2020 got here I was back up to 325 lbs! Luckily, I found MFP and I've made some…

  • What a delicious-looking loaf of bread! (I'm all in on the stress-head too! 😀)
  • @ready2lose2101 Hello and welcome! Great to have you here.
  • Congratulations! You look great!
  • Kind of having a tough go of it today in Foodieville so I found this offered me some measure of comfort and hoped it might do the same for ya'll:
  • Couldn't resist a little exercise humor for the day! 😀😉
  • @norafitz61 Hello and welcome! I can certainly relate to you on a few different levels. I, too, had bariatric surgery many years ago and gained a lot of the weight back and I also never made it to my goal weight so now I'm back to doing it the old-fashioned, tried-and-true way of diet and exercise and making it a forever…
  • @Arralethe Congrats on your 4 lb loss for this month. I don't know about you but my weight loss often happens at unexpected times rather than those times when I feel like it should register the most and, like you, I know it isn't usually fat gain so I chalk it up to water weight and the mysterious workings of the human…
  • @goal06082021 Goodness! It certainly sounds like you had a time of it! Back in the day I also suffered from plantar fasciitis so I know firsthand how painful it can be. Luckily, it "heeled" and I haven't had an issue with it for years - I wish you success with it and that it heals in the near future. I've always been…
  • You are not alone in the confusing world of tracking nutrition information in MFP - there are just WAY TOO MANY DUPLICATE AND INCORRECT ENTRIES IN THE DATABASE AND I find that I almost always have to update the nutrition information! After so much trial and error what I now do is save the items I know I am going to use…
  • I finally received my scales from Amazon. What a process I went through to get them! I was going to wait and post my weigh-in on Monday, but I decided I would rather do Friday weigh-ins. (I actually received the scales on Saturday, but I am just for this one time going to backdate it to Friday, the day before.) Age: 58…
  • @goal06082021 - Love what you said regarding throwing away food... "My body is not a trash can, I am better than that." I am going to tuck that one away into my foodie addict repertoire! :)
  • Soooo one of my favorite sandwiches in the whole wide world USED to be a Reuben Sandwich complete with delicious grilled white bread, corned beef, swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and thousand islands dressing... I say USED to be because today I had my daughter bring me home one from Winchell's and I DID NOT LIKE IT ONE BIT! The…
  • @goal06082021 - I think you are my foodie/beverage twin. Love a nice cold beer and eggplant parm is one of my absolute faves! Isn't it great when you can "indulge" yourself and still meet your goal! :)
  • Nice to meet you! I feel exactly the same way you do. I am just very slowly incorporating exercise into my daily routine and doing my best to get my health back. I have always been overweight throughout my life but I was always in good shape until I entered my 50's and my health slowly declined to the point that I recently…
  • Hello from Guam Everyone! :) So the good news is I should finally have my scales and body tape measure in the next couple of days. I gave up trying to find it at one of the stores on the island and went ahead and just ordered them off amazon and paid the huge shipping fee. I have been actively participating on MFP for the…
