  • Are you taking measurments? When I went from 250 to 175 pounds there were several plateau's. Some were weeks long! Measuring (chest, waist, hips) was the proof that I was still moving in the right direction even though the scale was stalled.
  • My daily weight loss/gain is HUGELY affected by what I eat after supper. Although I am not a person that practices fasting, I do consider after supper as no-eat-time.

  • I am a long time MFP on-and-off user. I noticed the change as well. Don’t care for it as much as the simple format from before. It also takes a lot longer to load and I can’t see how many new posts anymore. Even so, this change is not nearly as bad as when MFP added all of the Blog-clogs to my feed.
