  • Hello. New here to this thread. Been on MFP forever. Iam 65 and decided last Christmas (2020) after dieting all my life and being fat, "I was done." I started a low-carb diet with some intermitting fasting on Dec 26th 2020 and as of today have lost 130 lbs. Now the hard part starts, maintenance. I feel better than I ever…
  • You've successfully already lost 42 lbs. Why start using drugs now? Continued doing what you used to lose the 42 lbs. Most drugs have side accents. Why risk it.
  • Hello, I'm sure I'm too late to join this group, but I would really like the chance to be. Really needing a group that is serious, dedicated and active. Iam down 85 pounds since Des 26, 2019. I have another 30 to 50 more to lose and I'm 65 next month. I would appreciate it if you'd consider adding me to your group. MFP…
  • Start monitoring the site again and getting rid of all the non-MFP/weight fitness messages. It's getting ridiculous. Return it back to the great weight loss community it used to be. Not a social media for all these random, creepy, non weight loss messages. You have to really look too even find messages related to losing…
  • Ordered two tops in a size XL. (down from a tight 3X) I haven't worn an XL for probably 30 years. So happy.🤗
  • akkooshtka, your doing great. 🙂👍You find out what works for you and you do you. Don't let anyone burst your bubble and continue doing what works for you. I've been doing a pretty low carb plan myself with some intermitting fasting. Mosting while Iam sleeping. I stop eating at 6 pm and don't start the next day till 9:30 am…
  • You can lose weight without exercising. Center in on your diet. If you don't eat the calories, you won't have to worry about burning the calories.
  • So far I have not notice any of the diet sweetners affecting my weight loss (6 mths with no stalls), making me hungry, or spiking my insulin. If my weight-loss does start slowing down, this will be the first thing I will look into. That being said, I know they are very unhealthy and I need to start eliminating them from my…
  • Hi Wendy, Welcome. You can do this. I've been dieting all my life and I retired this last year. Iam 64 and I figured this was my last chance time to do this once and for all. I follow a strict carb diet. You find what works for you and you do you. I started the day after Christmas 2020 and Iam down 65 lbs. I still have a…

  • Not yet started yet, but trying to get motivated to start. Why? Retired this year and want to live these last years fit and healthy, I hurt all over, Iam at my heaviest than I've ever been (288), having what I believe is severe reflux pessure/pain from the pressure of my big stomach, scared of getting covid from being high…

  • My thoughts exactly. Iam home, cant go no where, can't visit no one.

Please feel free to message me, if you would like someone "who's…

  • Hi everyone. I'm looking to finally lose this weight once and for all. I'm 63 years old and I want to enjoy my life while I still have one. I have gained and lost over a hundred pounds two or three times and gave always gained it back. I would like some new friends that are committed and motivated with open diaries. I'm…
  • I keep it pretty simple, if my scale says it's a loss I count as a loss. I don't care if its water, fat, or the last meal I ate. A loss is a loss. We have no idea how much is water and how much is fat. Just celebrate that it's a loss and go forward.
  • Please add me as a friend. Iam starting (again). I have alot to lose. I log daily and have an open diary to friends. I like sharing and encouraging each other. We can do this together. A New Year, a New Beginning.
  • My next seven days goal is to continue "To Do The Next Right Thing" every minute of every day and to stay the course until I've finish this journey. With His help, I can do all things.

  • Never Have I Ever: Kept any of my weight losses off. After years and years of losing (literly) hundreds of pounds. Starting to lose hope and years I ever will. But, Iam trying again...
  • Could someone please tell me the difference between Keto dieting and just low carbing? (Cutting the amount of carbsvyou eat).
  • I'd like to do this with all you guys is the group started and where is it located and how do we get there?? Let's do this in 2019🤗
  • I agree. I am down around 40 lbs, but have a bunch left to lose. I want to do it once and forever this time. Friend request me if you'd like.
  • Hi welcome. Love your pup. What you need help with?
  • Ok then, doesn't sound like this is something your ready to do yet. It does take a level of want to and work to lose weight.
  • Wow. Great Job. What an inspiration. Can you share more of your story with us? Your diet plan, exercise plan, how long, tips and advise?
