  • My experience with losing weight but maintaining muscle is to eat the maximum you can with still losing weight. It is a slower process. I've just hit 40 and am finding weight loss and general healthy behavior way different than when I was 30.
  • I'm going to try joining to get motivated :) I've been on MFP for several years but not very active the last few years. I'm starting at 182.2 lbs and I've been pretty consistent between 180-183 lbs for the last 6 months. Before I had my third child, I was 140 lbs and exercised several mornings a week. With my first two…
  • Best of luck!
  • Me too! Mom of 3 with about 40 lbs to go. Feel free to add me.
  • never stopped slacking...plus side is I'm holding steady.
  • I can't believe it has been so long. I wish life would calm down! I've had a rough time since I was on here. My grandma who I was very close to passed away. She was 95y so not unexpected. On a more shocking note, my dad passed away very unexpectedly at 65y. We were going to be visiting him the following week as we live on…
  • SW 184.4 CW 183.4 We've been painting in our free time and have finally gotten our baseboards and window frames painted. The kids got a garden in and we have baby peppers growing. I'm excited to have them be big peppers! In the last 2 weeks it has changed from cool spring weather to hot summer weather. I'm not actually a…
  • When I quit this last year, I was frustrated because I was eating to lose and losing nothing. I felt like what was the point. Well, I can say now that the point would have been to maintain rather than gain! I find no matter how long I go with good eating habits it always has to be conscious. When I move to autopilot, I…
  • I'm going to try to rejoin this group... I was doing ok last year after the birth of baby #3 and then struggled with eating and motivation and dropped out because I wasn't making progress. I gained 20 lbs and got just over my pregnancy weight high. I feel like I'm getting my motivation back now. I'm down 10 lbs from my…
  • You are doing great Eninad! I'm back. I'm in bad shape eating wise. I had been doing ok and then totally fell off the wagon in the summer. I have just over a month of maternity leave left and it would be nice to wear my normal work clothes. My baby is my worst sleeper of my kids and it is getting to me. He is starting to…
  • You've been doing awesome! I'm very impressed you've kept up with this! For me, the healthy lifestyle is a lot of work. Sometimes my life makes it easier but it is always a conscious effort. I'm not doing well with it this year but hopefully I will get back on track.
  • Body pump class today I'm also sad that my fitbit doesn't seem to be charging. I have one last thing to try and then I have to contact them. Monday it acted kind of strange but seemed ok Tuesday.
  • I'm trying to get back to this. I finished all the birthdays and vacation stuff this summer so now I have no excuse to be off plan. Esther - my oldest daughter is like that. In gymnastics and good for her age but can trip over her feet walking down the hall. Both my husband and I are looking to increase our life insurance…
  • @eninad you are doing great I'm holding steady but effort hasn't been great. These past 2 weeks my kids have been in daily swimming smack in the middle of when my gym has childcare so I haven't gone other than last weekend. I'm excited to get back to it. I also have my daughters birthday this weekend so hopefully making…
  • Hike looks beautiful! Yesterday was weights. I've been having trouble with my right knee (squating, lunges, step ups, walking down stairs...) I've been modifying some of those since the begining. I added in some physio exercises in addition to the modifications and it seems to be helping. Today is just a low key day of…
  • Vicky, I'm sorry to hear about your Dad. Hopefully you can find comfort in the good memories.
  • Thanks. I feel l a mess with no will power. In good news, I ate my veggies this afternoon like I was supposed to rather than the entire bag of Nibs we are using for potty training rewards According to my fitbit, I've been averaging an hour less sleep a night than I was in May so I'm going to work on that this month.
  • I'm now back too where I was when I started the previous challenge :( I hate I know what I need to do, I plan it out and by the end of the day I'm lost. I really hate that I make sure my kids have healthy snacks but I don't eat them myself. I need to hold myself to the same standard regarding quantity, quality and timing…
  • SW 180 CW 178 Goal for challenge 160 Ultimate goal 140.
  • You are getting so close to being below 200! Welcome to the new people :)
  • I'm from the July 4 challenge. I am on maternity leave until next January. I like to exercise but really struggle with emotional eating. Work is generally OK for me because I only eat what I pack for lunch. At home, I struggle with snacking all the time. Plus I feel like I'm making food all the time for my kids. I know…

  • I know this feeling well.
  • I remember a comic strip (cathy?) where she was asked if she ate when she was happy, sad, angry, or bored and she said yes. I'm part way through my 1 year mat leave. When I work, I have trouble losing due to time (work full time, hour commute each way, 2 (now 3) kids, husband gets home much later than me). Now at home, I…
  • I'm here too. I've been going up and down the same 5-7 lbs since February. Initially, it was stress (new baby had a NiCU stay and was followed by blood draws for a few issues for a few months). Now I am at home and all I want to do is eat. I know what I should do. I know meals I've used in the past. I know I sholdny eat…
  • Starting from June 8 monday June 15 Me 4 The Binge 4 Binge free (3) 1
  • Starting from June 8 Sunday June 14 Me 3 The Binge 4 Binge free (3) back to 0
  • One day :( I find the first couple days binge free are really hard and then it feels ok. Then I start to wonder why I had a problem and by days 15-20, I really struggle. In the last 5 years, I don't think I've made it over 30 days. Good luck!
  • For me it is eating. Both what and how much. My goal would be 80% healthy but the reality of that varies. My bigger problem is portions, healthy or not. I won't over eat carrots or anything but nuts, eggs, cheese, and seeds can easily add up if I'm not paying attention. I like exercising and I exercise regularly but it…
  • Yup. I tell myself the logic but I still do it :(
