  • I'm also really interested in the article! Mini updates: 1) I made it into the kitchen TWICE this morning standing for nearly 2 minutes each time, to show my aspiring-chef daughter how to use the new food processor to chop bell peppers. I haven't been able to do that without extreme pain in awhile... but I feel fine!! 2)…
  • Well, to a certain extent... that depends. Calories are a unit if measurement of energy. Your recommended "Goal" daily calories are based on 3 mathematical formulas to determine how much energy your body needs. The first determines your BMR, or the amount of energy a body of your size with your type of hormones will need…
  • @deepwoodslady I love your little every 10lbs scratch off list ... and I have just entered the 250s lol... would you mind if I used that too? 🤔
  • Starting out May with a win! 259.2! Was hoping for 260, so yay! SW: 273.0 HW: 274.4 Old SWs: 222.3/241.6 Former (dieting) LW: 161.8 May GW: 247? UGW: 160 (then maintain 1 year, then we'll see) May 1st: 259.2 Current weight: 259.2 May weight lost so far: Weight lost this year: 15.2 lbs Daily Focus: 🌼 Weigh in each morning 🌼…
  • 259.2 !!!! Bodies are so weird. Everyone says you can't drop lbs overnight, but I literally do, starting out. I know it's water weight and the thyroid thing, so I *am* recording everything. I know that everything over what the calculations say I *should* be losing will be balanced out when Moses parts the sea, or in a…
  • @lynn_glenmont oh, she's just doing it to shock/offend me. It happened already. Pics are on her phone though, so I'll have her send them so i can upload tomorrow. Share the horror with yall. @SuzySunshine99 i don't know if even choux buns shaped like swans could convince me to undergo such a big social experience, but I do…
  • Just cancel the free trial. There's a few premium features that are nice to have, but unnecessary. You can use the app for free.
  • It's 9 pm and I'm still hanging in there with the one day fast! Was worried I would spend forever trying to find the new thread lol... So .. reintro/better intro... I'm Sissy. partially physically disabled, autism, anxiety, ptsd, pre-menopausal mom to a 13 year old. Problematic areas: Addiction to Mtn Dew, and caffeine I…
  • Yeah, it's a lot harder, and a lot *slower*, to lose weight when you're closer to goal. I know it's frustrating! It's because smaller bodies need less energy (calories) to maintain. Either our deficits are no longer deficits at all, or they are smaller deficits which mean slower weight loss. ...and that's okay. Every lb…
  • Hi Jerimiah! I wouldn't worry too much about your intro... I haven't even posted one lol. You said you're going for weight gain to meet Navy requirements, which I get, but mentioned a lower weight for "medical exemption", which I didn't understand. You don't have to explain, but I'm curious! I've got a very different goal,…
  • Just bumping because I found and checked this for the fat per lb of healthy weight calculation, and it deserves bumping
  • Sometimes it's the simplest solutions which elude me, lmao. Thank you. 😆 I'm so smooth-brained today!
  • If you're moderately active and nice, people tend to just add you, lol. But if you click on someone's name here, you can see their community profile. "View Profile" After tapping that, there's an button which says "MyFitnessPal Profile". There's 2 buttons near the top. One looks like an envelope or something, and the other…
  • @porquenoirl i think we posted over each other and i missed your update... sounds like you smashed all your april goals and had a lot of fun! Congrats!! @CupcakeCrusoe you said "see you in may" and i thought "wow thats a long birthday"... im slow lol. Also... is tagging easier on desktop? I've been chatting from my phone…
  • @porquenoirl thanks lol... I tend not to feel hungry until I eat, or until I think it's time to eat (skipping breakfast is usually helpful for me too) so the fast day itself isn't really challenging ... more like... boring, lol. Which says something I suppose. Maybe I tend to use food as entertainment? It's food for…
  • So, I managed to do all my hand movements yesterday, and nothing else. Today, back at it, and!!! Have increased ability for some exercises!!! And I can stand for a full minute now, which is huge. Feeling very encouraged by this bit of progress! :) @Sinisterbarbie1 thank you! I don't think i can do the thing with the ball…
  • If it helps... I'm 5'1 with shoes on. I'm 262 lbs right now. Was down to 175ish before, and still losing weight. I am not active at all (disabled) so I'm not burning much in the way of calories. My target for daily calories is ~1750. It was around ~1650 when I was down to 175 lbs. You're probably hungry because you arent…
  • Wrote this last night and hit "Save" instead of "Post", because I'm a *genius*!! Something which has worked well for me in the past, to take my focus off food/snacks, is to periodically do a one day "food fast". I'd set the first one for the last day of May. Not a real fast, the goals are different. So I will still have my…
  • Lmao oh no that's awful. Well, ...at least you know it's likely a scale problem? I hope you're able to get a different one soon! In the meantime I would just keep tracking/logging as normal. Little things like a wonky scale can be really discouraging. Don't let bad assembly throw off all your progress ❤
  • @AnnPT77 yeah, I think when I was trying last time, my "sweet spot" was somewhere between 1440 and 1640, so I am trying to make sure I get at least that much in, lol Calculators are insane. The first time I tried to lose weight the first calculator I found was telling me to aim for 1000 kcal or something crazy like that.…
  • @AnnPT77 yeah lol, I uh... never tasted a vegetable until my daughter was like... starting to eat table foods. I'm still struggling to eat more than a mouthful or two, and only very specific things I've trained myself to tolerate. Broccoli is one of the most tolerable but 1/2 cup to 1 cup is about my limit. I'm working on…
  • Hmm... this one is still a bit beyond my abilities... but I've been making a list of movements I can't do *yet* to work up to! This one's going on that list! I don't have an exercise ball but I have been thinking of getting one soon! I'll try that when I do.
  • Oh, not at all... it was my own as-yet-unrealized hang-ups that made me feel defensive about your totally appropriate (and helpful!!) comment. I hope you didn't feel bad about it, it was such a good thing! @LifeChangz omg I looooooove that little tracker! I'm definitely printing that out. Coloring it in will be a great…
  • Thanks for the encouragement everyone! So ... I did manage to make it out of bed and into the living room today. I'm even doing some of my small movements. And actively chatting on here. I can't do basically anything requiring me to use my leg/back muscles today, (even just sitting upright hurts) but it's more than I…
  • This sounds motivating! I'll give it a shot! So .. My name's Sissy. I'm a 42 years old, partially physically disabled, autism, anxiety, ptsd, pre-menopausal mom to a 13 year old. I like math and logic but have about a billion issues with food, so logic doesn't always fix my problems. (I am also prone to bouts of…
  • I love coffee smells, but I have an aversion to both the smell and the taste of alcohol in ... anything. I can even tell if something has been "beer-battered" or cooked in any kind of alcohol, really, bythe smell alone, and at that point I absolutely cannot eat it.
  • That looks amazing!!
  • @AnnPT77 unfortunately I used my 1 free username change to yknow... NOT be my email address, lol... but I read your username suffestion to my 13 year old, who has assured me I am definitely *not* too cool for.. anything. 😆 I'm glad you are finding some inspiration in my organized chaos lol. I finally decided that if I keep…
