  • Hi. I'd like to join all y'all on this challenge. My name is Pam. I'm 63, 5'2". I weigh 243 and my goal is around 140-145. I've set mini goals for myself. The first one is to get down to 239, then down to 229, etc... My goals for Nov: Log daily Lose 5 pounds Walk daily Start weight: 243 lbs Current weight: 243.4 Goal for…
  • @jm216 good luck with your stress monster! I need to get my treadmill set up and start walking my stress off instead of trying to eat it away. Some days I just feel like giving up but I know that's not the answer so I just keep plugging along trusting that one day soon this stress will disappear!
  • Today was weigh-in day. It wasn't pretty, I was up 5 pounds. I haven't weighed in 2 weeks but still...5 pounds, yikes! I've got to get a hold on this stress eating!!
  • Maybe the people with updated versions pay for the premium version.
  • Hi everyone. I'd like to join your group. I'm 63, 5'2", 240 pounds. My goal is somewhere around 140ish. My first mini goal is to get to 230. Figure it'd be easier to do small goals then look at the big goal of 100 lbs.
  • Hi everyone. I'm doing fairly well with my diet. Staying within my calorie range but keep going over a little on the carbs and fat, especially the carbs so I raised them from 50 to 75 grams a day. I figure as long as I'm under 100 I'm good. I've managed to lose a little over 1 pound a week for the last 2 weeks. I'd like to…
  • Hi everyone. Happy October! I'm trying to get back on the keto wagon, second time around isn't as easy as I remember it being the first time but I'm working on it.
  • Hi everyone. Sorry I've been missing last week or so, life happens...but I can't let stuff knock me down and stay down. So I'm getting back on the wagon.
  • Hi and welcome. Sounds like we have a lot in common. There are some very supportive folks in here. I think you're going to like it.
  • I wish I could log all my food for the day but honestly I never know what we're going to be having. My husband and I are both retired. Husband is recovering from stage 4 liver cancer and also being diagnosed with stage 2 diabetes so his food likes/dislikes have changed. I can plan a certain meal for dinner then husband…
  • @AnnPT77 im set at 1 pound a week. I just need to get a hold on my eating. But like I said earlier, tracking has really been an eye opener. I know I can do this once my mind is set to it. Baby steps...first being dedicated to tracking then get a eating plan set. I know I don't won't to follow any kind of diet cause those…
  • Since I started tracking my food (honestly) I've been shocked at how many calories I've been eating! No wonder I haven't been able to lose. MFP has my calories set at 1200 a day. I've been eating around 2,000! I've always been an emotional eater, and this past year has been hard. Had a shoulder replacement surgery, lost my…
  • Thank you for the link. I'll definitely check it out.
  • @Evamutt i know exactly what you mean about tracking. I started getting serious enough to start tracking 2 days ago. I learned that weighing and measuring everything is a job in its self! I'm hoping it gets easier the more I do it!
  • @michaelhardie13 I would say yes since your body has to work harder at staying cool 😉. We've been having temps in mid-high 90's with heat index in the triple digits so far this month but this morning rain moved in which lowered our temps! For the next 6 days only getting up to the low-mid 80's with good chance of rain…
  • Hi Rosemarie2972, welcome. I'm new too. Congratulations on the weight loss, 30 pounds is awesome!
  • Good morning everyone. I've done good at tracking my food and drinks last couple days. I can already tell it's going to take dedication with having to weigh/measure everything. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
  • Hello everyone. I'm new here and would like to join the group. I'm 63 and need to lose 90 lbs. I'm needing motivation and am hoping being part of a group will give me that motivation! I start the day by tracking my food but for some reason during the day I just quit tracking, need to break that habit for sure.
