  • Hello All, I am not thrilled with my weight at the half way point but it is my own fault! I have not lost any weight but on the plus side I have been moving more. I wear a Garmin VivoFit and used to get only about 6,000 steps a day (I sit at a desk all day for work) but when I started this group I promised myself that I…
  • Hello my motivation team!! Last week was a good week for exercise but a bad week for eating! I gave into sweets pretty much everyday and today is the day I am stopping this! I have put about 4 pounds back on and not thrilled with that number at all so I took a minute (well longer than a minute) to re-group and think about…
  • @curlymop3, I usually do Greek yogurt with fresh blueberries and some granola or some scrambled eggs with fresh spinach. Here in the US cereal is also a popular breakfast food and is also loaded with sugars and artificial colors. I tend to stay away from cereal as it is like eating a doughnut but in cereal form, LOL
  • @Sillybee727, I hope you feel better soon. That cold went through my house starting the beginning of this month and my daughter still has it. Get healthy first and than you can workout, your body needs rest!
  • @martinezkrauss, you gave me a good laugh when I was reading your post. I was reading how you were bored with TV and started stacking a bunch of puzzle boxes on your dining room table and in my head I thought you were going to say that you started to do puzzles. I had that image in my head and not an image of you using it…
  • My week had it ups and downs but overall pretty good. I finally got 6 workouts in this past week at the gym and it felt GREAT (after not really working out since Oct.)! I do both cardio and weights when I go so I feel like I am on the right path. Now if the eating was on the right path I would be good but that is a work in…
  • Your children (puppies) are adorable! I too was wide awake at 3am and by 4am still awake so I decided to get out of bed and get my butt to the gym. Thank God that Planet Fitness is open 24 hours so that insomniacs like me can get up at any time and go work out. LOL My week has been tough as I have been craving sweets…
  • I love this idea also!!! I am going to start doing this right now. No need to look in the mirror for this one, I am grateful that this body was strong and healthy enough to allow me to go workout this morning before my hectic day started. That felt good to say (or type) out loud. Thank you for the idea!
  • Not down any weight at all but I am not letting that stop me. I finally made it to the gym this morning after 2 months of being sick and dealing with insomnia. My goal this week is to make it to the gym every morning and stay away from sweets. I was eating sweets just to stay awake during the day so no more for me. I…
  • This week I am focusing first on getting healthy as I was hit with a nasty cold this past Friday. It is driving me nuts with this non-stop coughing but it forces me to eat healthy and drink plenty of fluids. Great job to all of you who have posted on here that you had great weeks and lost either inches and/or pounds! That…
  • Now I want your Mother in laws cake as it sounds good and you didn't even say what kind of cake it is. LOL. I realized after reading your post that all I was focusing on is the cake. I seriously have a sweets addiction. Awesome job on passing up taking cake home. I am sure it felt good to say no to bringing it home.
  • When I was weight training I did feel great and had more energy. Time to get back to weight training at least 3 times a week. Thanks for sharing the information on weight training and reminding me how important it is for me.
  • My Saturday has been me on the couch with the remote control in hand. I am trying to get plenty of rest so that by Monday when I have to go back to work my cold will be hopefully gone. I am going to be dragging my butt to the grocery store tomorrow to stock up on healthy foods for my week.
  • I am one who also gets on the scale every single morning and if it does not move down or goes up I am instantly in a bad mood and really mad at myself and sometimes mad at the world for having such yummy fattening food available. This weekend I am focusing on just getting healthy as I caught a nasty cold Thursday night.…
  • Hello Everyone, I am Tracy and going to be 47 next month. I am a Mom to an 11 y.o. daughter and a 15 y.o. son and a wife and full time buyer. I am 5'6" and currently weight 165lbs but would love to ultimately be 140lbs. I was there 3 years ago and let myself go so I am once again working towards my ultimate weight goal. I…
  • Feel Free to add me also. :)
  • You should definitely get tested for underactive thyroid, aka hypothyroidism. You shouldn't need an ultra sound but a simple blood test to see your T3 and T4 levels. I know that feeling of being tired and not wanting to do anything. I was diagnosed 10 years ago and have been on Synthroid since and it helps but it is still…
  • I am going through really bad insomnia right now and the past few nights I only have been getting a total of 3-4 hours of sleep. Feeling like a zombie at work has been no fun. I tried melatonin, essential oils and tart cherry juice. Time to contact my doctor for meds, I was trying to avoid that. So frustrating.
  • Please feel free to add me also. Looking for motivation and will support all MFP buddies. Thank you
  • I just recently got a Vivofit 2 and trying to lose the weight I gained back. Please add me as I need support and motivation. Thank you and Happy New Year.
  • Hello Ladies, My name is Tracy and I will be 45 in March. I am new to this group and joined myfitnesspal back in Oct 2012. I had lost 40 pounds and than started a new job and the holidays came around and before I knew it I put almost half the weight back on. I have 2 children, 13 and 9. I want to try to keep up with their…
  • Those are so heavenly!!!! I indulge in them once in awhile. You feel like you are eating a very fattening dessert! I need to go out and get more of them. I get the dark chocolate ones.
  • Good Morning all, I am taking phentermine 37.5 and I also find that some days it works great and other days I want to eat all day. I have a feeling my body is getting used to it. I hope I am wrong. I am new to my fitness pal so if you want to add me as a friend please feel free to do so. We can all use the support, can't…
