  • Judging Amy (I loved that show!) :)
  • @jm216 You had a great week with both exercise and diet - AWESOME! I like eating pre-made salads, too! Quick, convenient, and nutritious. @daydrem_dw Congratulations on getting below 185 lbs. I so look forward to the day when I can post that I am below 200 lbs. @KeriA - Great weekly workout routine!
  • Hi everybody! Just wanted to share some exercise ramblings from this 58-year-old, 300+/lb senior! I am still waiting on the purchase of some scales so I really can't log my weight or body measurements just yet, but I can share some fitness goals... Today I completed my 10-minute Indoor Walking Workout #2 for Seniors,…
  • Your story is inspiring. I am so sorry for the loss of your father but happy that you are honoring his memory through your weight loss. I am just starting my journey and have a lot of weight to lose and I also have to push through the pain when exercising since I also have a bad knee and need my hips replaced. BUT...I am…
  • You are a great source of inspiration. Congratulations on all of your hard work!
  • @supersparklyk Greetings! I too am trying to eat a more plant-based diet and have a big love affair with veggies and legumes. You might find some good ideas here (this is one of my favorite "foodie" websites: https://www.eatingwell.com/search/?q=plant-based+recipes - best of luck in your journey to a healthier you.…
  • My March goals are to continue exercising 4-5 days a week and progressively build upon my routine. I am only 22 days in and I have a very long way to go before I will see myself as being fit, but I am already feeling a difference and that keeps me focused. I will also continue charting my food and exercise on a daily basis…
  • Feeling really down and depressed today and I'm in quite a bit of pain so I am taking an exercise break today. Hopefully, I will be rested and recuperated tomorrow and be ready for another round of exercise. My lack of consistent sleep is taking its toll on me. I soooo wish that for just one night, or even one day for that…
  • Hello and Welcome from Guam. I agree with you that MFP does a great job at keeping you focused and aware of your eating patterns. I can never say too many good things about MFP! Best of luck on your journey of mindful eating.
  • Welcome and Hello from Guam. Congratulations on your 26-pound loss and your desire to eat healthier. I started here 20 days ago at about 320 lbs (I am kind of guesstimating this right now because I have to get some scales - my last weigh-in I weighed 301 and I know I had gained some since then so I chose 320 as my starting…
  • I hope you are now fully recovered from your vaccine. Adequate sleep is a HUGE issue for me. I rarely sleep more than 2 hours without waking up. I would so love to be able to get 6-8 hours of uninterrupted sleep. I know how important it is, but my body just doesn't seem to want to cooperate.
  • Had to really push myself to exercise today, but I did it. And with that in mind... :D :D :D
  • Really depressing day for me. I moved here with my daughter and grandchildren to Guam from the US a few months ago. I am disabled and was planning on applying for SSI here in Guam, but found out I cannot get it here on the islands. This was a big blow for me because I have always been financially independent and I now have…
  • You are not alone! I had my gastric bypass way back in 2002. My starting weight was 425 pounds and the smallest I got was 195 but I didn't stay there very long. To be honest, I never took my surgery seriously. I didn't exercise other than walking and didn't follow a nutritional diet plan. I did manage to stay at 220-230…
  • @azalea4175 Hello from Guam - Feb 23rd, 12:47 pm - It sounds like we have a lot in common! Both of my hips need to be replaced so that was guiding me to take it easy yesterday. I woke up today and felt refreshed. I was still sore (lol that's a daily thing!), but I did some morning stretches and felt better. I also did some…
  • What beautiful photos! You look so happy and that fills me with joy. :)
  • Monday, February 22nd, 11:59 pm. Hello from Guam! It was a bit of a rough day for me in terms of both diet and exercise. Not many healthy food choices in the house at the moment, so I did go over my sugar by 12 grams, but the good news is everything else was slightly below my goal (including my protein. This is…
  • My Big Fat Greek Wedding
  • Just starting my weight loss journey at 320 lbs, 58 yrs old. Two bad hips, one bad right knee, COPD, and last year moving to a very hot climate and not having air conditioning for the first few months found me laying in my bed all day long which resulted in gaining weight and losing A LOT of muscle, to the point where it…

  • I am 58 yrs old and I currently weigh 320 pounds (this is currently an educated guess since I still need to purchase scales, but last weigh-in I was 301 pounds and I know I have gained some since then) and I am nearly bedridden. My short-term goals are to follow my recommended myfitness pal nutrition and exercise…
  • Hello! Great to meet you! We seem to share similarities in terms of our weight. I am new here and always looking for inspiration. I recently moved from the US to Guam with my daughter and grandchildren and do not like it ... it is too hot and so I find myself spending my days lying in my bed since my room is the only one…
  • We all have days like this! Just gotta forge ahead and get back on track. You got this! :)
