  • [/quote] I just have all the confidence that you will succeed! Having such a down to earth realistic approach is so key to long term success (I’ve found) for me, it helps my headspace which in turn contributes to my continued success. I love that you’re not counting those weeks as 1lb loss weeks! It’s such a smart way to…
  • Haha I still have my step in my closet and was just talking to my husband about whether I should get rid of it. Boy what a blast from the past. I used to be obsessed with the Firm and had tons of their videos. I used to also have Kelli Roberts Ultimate Step and loved it. However, I got my start with Cher's step workout.…
  • I have 9 months until my 50th and about 40-45 pounds to lose. I started on August 1st and have lost 10 pounds so far. I'm taking it very slowly so I don't crash and burn and gain it all back. My next goal is 10 pounds by the end of the year. I am very low maintenance and just want to be fit and healthy. I'm dealing with…
  • Losing 10 pounds by Christmas. It doesn't sound like much, but I just lost my first 10 pounds (started 8/1) and I have calculated a pound a week between now and Christmas that doesn't include Thanksgiving week, Christmas week, or the mini vacation my DH and I have planned in October. I'm trying to approach this very…
  • Here's my final weigh-in: SW: - 168.5 7/26 - 168.7 8/2 - 169 8/9 - 167.8 8/16 - 162.5 8/23 - 166.1 8/30 -166.7 Yep. Somehow I've gone up since last week. So while I'm disappointed that I didn't come close to my initial goal, I'm ok that at least I lost a little bit. I was 170 lbs. on August 1st so I've made some strides. I…
  • Here's my weekly weigh-in: SW: - 168.5 7/26 - 168.7 8/2 - 169 8/9 - 167.8 8/16 - 162.5 8/23 - 166.1 8/30 - Ugh the scale was not my friend this morning. I knew I'd be up from last week because I'm actually eating again, but it really went up. I contribute that to an over indulgence of my husband's delicious pasta last…
  • Here's my weekly weigh-in: SW: - 168.5 7/26 - 168.7 8/2 - 169 8/9 - 167.8 8/16 - 162.5 8/23 - 8/30 - I've dropped quite a bit. Normally I would be happy but it is because I'm so depressed and not eating. I'm having a tough time dealing with my Mom's death. Some days are good, others not so much. I'm sorry I haven't been…
  • Hang in there SuzOh. I'm sorry about your shoulder. Injuries stink but especially when you are trying so hard to make things happen. Here's my weekly weigh-in: SW: - 168.5 7/26 - 168.7 8/2 - 169 8/9 - 167.8 8/16 - 8/23 - 8/30 - After going up last week, the scale is finally coming down. I have worked darn hard at it this…
  • I weigh daily. I have a Fitbit scale so it automatically syncs the info to my app. I have an official weigh-in on Fridays here on MFP. It helps keep me on the right path.
  • I'm actually excited for tomorrow's weigh-in. I think I'll see a loss. I've already told hubby we have to have a very healthy dinner tonight because I have to log my weight tomorrow. :)
  • Hope the neck soreness goes away quickly. They are the worst. I'm feeling good about the challenge so far. I've been hitting my goals as far as walking/running and I'm sticking to 1500 or less calories a day. I hate that I initially put on two pounds that I've had to fight to get off but at least now I'm under the weight I…
  • The same thing happened to me too. I went up by about 2 pounds at first too. Just keep at it. There really is no other option. Good luck! You got this.
  • SuzOh, can you fix my starting weight. I cut and pasted last week and obviously was trying to do too many things at once because my weight wasn't right. Here is the correct information: SW: - 168.5 7/26 - 168.7 8/2 - 169 8/9 - 8/16 - 8/23 - 8/30 - So today was my one week weigh-in. I went up by a half a pound and I'm ok…
  • My breakfast lately is to sauté spinach, scramble two eggs in it and top with feta cheese.
  • Feel free to add me. I’m 46 and trying to work on my health to help me with deal with losing my Mom in May. I understand grief.
  • Well yesterday was a mixed bag of success and not so much. I dutifully pre-logged all of the day's calories and planned to do a 3.5 mile walk after work. So we get a heck of a storm that lasts all evening and knocks out our power. I was not able to get my walk in BUT I did manage to do all 11,500 steps. As the evening went…
  • I would love to join. I'm 48 and am over any kind of fad diet. I technically have 50 lbs. to lose but I'm only 5'1".
  • Feel free to add me. I'm 48, 5'1" and 171 lbs. I've been on this roller coaster before and am determined that this time is it.
  • Florida Native here. I'm 48 and looking to lose 48. Welcome!
  • Feel free to add me. I'm trying to change my way of eating for good and to make exercise a consistent part of my life. I love experimenting with recipes and trying new things. If you haven't already, check out She has great recipes for just about every kind of eater.

  • Feel free to add me Cindy. I'm 48, 5'1" and 271 lbs. Looking to lose 40 lbs. and change my way of eating forever.
  • Congratulations on your loss so far. I'm looking to lose 40 lbs and change my eating habits forever. Feel free to add me. :)
  • Feel free to add me. I’m starting again after a difficult year and am determined to do it this time.
  • I feel ya. I'm the heaviest I've ever been and determined to make a change. I'm 48 yrs old and need to lose 40 lbs. It's not a good look on this 5'1" frame, not to mention being bad for my health. Friend me if you want and we can encourage each other.
  • Those are the choices I struggle with too. I know what I need to do. It's the actual doing it part that I have a hard time with. I did pretty well this weekend as far as logging everything and not indulging too much. I went for a long walk on Saturday, which felt really good. I ended up not walking Sunday or yesterday (but…
  • Sorry you are right. It is from today.
  • Happy Friday! I usually weigh-in on Fridays so here goes. SW: - 185.5 7/26 - 185.7 8/2 - 8/9 - 8/16 - 8/23 - 8/30 - I'm so disappointed that I actually went up. I'm not sure why. I have a slight peanut butter addiction that may have played a role. :) Anyway, I'll keep logging and walking and see what next week brings. My…
  • By any chance does anyone use Fitbit? If so, and you would like to be friends let me know. Thanks. Most of my current Fitbit friends have dropped off the radar.
  • I'd like to join. I've had an incredibly difficult year and am trying very hard to focus on my health and weight again. I'm 5'1", 48 yrs. and currently weigh 168.5. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself so my goal is to log my calories everyday and stay between 1300-1500, and walk at least 4x a week. I'd like to…
  • Salad kits. I'm in love with Salad Express Pear Gorgonzola kit. The whole bag with dressing and walnuts is only 250 calories. I add some grilled chicken and it makes a perfect lunch. I am also really digging the strawberry spinach kit from Fresh Express right now. That's lunch for today.
