  • Age: 30 Height: 5'3" SW: 252.8 lb (11/13/2020) CW: 185.8 lb (4/30/2022) 5/7: 184.6 lb 5/14: 185.4 5/21: 185.8 5/28: GW for May: 180 GW for 2022: 155 Ughhh. I think I'm hormonal - I remained ravenous this week (even knowing Tuesday was MIL's birthday and trying to plan around that), and I cried listening to the most…
  • Missed my check-in yesterday, so here it is: Age: 30 Height: 5'3" SW: 252.8 lb (11/13/2020) CW: 185.8 lb (4/30/2022) 5/7: 184.6 lb 5/14: 185.4 5/21: 5/28: GW for May: 180 GW for 2022: 155 I know that's water and food in transit, because I saw 184.6 on the scale the very day before. So, this has been an unintentional…
  • The workouts on Darebee are okay - I like their illustrations - but as with most fitness websites, the sorting/leveling is really hit-or-miss. It's really hard to find true "beginner"-level exercise routines; the vast majority of workouts labeled as being for beginners assume a base level of fitness that for many of us is…
  • This is physically impossible unless you meant grams - an ounce is 28 grams, they're not equivalent. The label boasts that the Kool-Aid contains less sugar compared to soda - however, if you look at the actual nutrition label, "a serving" of Kool-Aid powder is still almost 100% sugar. Per the label, one serving of powder…
  • If you're at the point where a ±25-calorie irregularity is going to make or break you, maybe you need to take a step back from counting for a bit.
  • Age: 30 Height: 5'3" SW: 252.8 lb (11/13/2020) CW: 185.8 lb (4/30/2022) 5/7: 184.6 lb 5/14: 5/21: 5/28: GW for May: 180 GW for 2022: 155 Ayy, you love to see it. I banged out 20 of the 25 miles of walking I intended to do today (1 mile is about 2000 steps, maybe a little more than that with my stride length - ya girl got…
  • Anyone have any plans this weekend? I know Mother's Day can be pretty fraught for some people - this is permission from an internet stranger to do whatever you need to do to take care of yourself, if the second Sunday in May is a hard day for you, no matter your reason. Tomorrow (Saturday) is the LoseIt Challenge…
  • One bell pepper isn't even 500 grams of bell pepper (unless it's the size of your head). Find a different entry.
  • @biohazardinc I'm not who you were talking to but on the subject of your calorie allotment and exercise: If you're using MFP as intended, you eat the number of calories that it tells you to - they've already accounted for your current stats (age, height, current weight, sex, activity level outside of purposeful exercise,…
  • I'm 5'3", SW 250ish, similar activity level (desk job but daily intentional exercise - walking/running, strength training, yoga), and I've lost almost 70lb in 18 months eating way more than that (average about 1900-2100 cal/day).
  • It's all just data. Now you know something you didn't know a week ago. If you don't know there's a problem, how in the world would you know where to even start fixing it?

  • The recipe builder as it is currently is the most flexible setup - different recipes, not to mention different cooks, have different approaches. Sometimes I make something that does break into discrete, easily-counted servings. Other times I make something where the serving size could vary, and it's less math to just put…
  • Nice, got the May thread a little early! Thank you @RavenStCloud for keeping this group going. Template for later: Age: 30 Height: 5'3" SW: 252.8 lb (11/13/2020) CW: 185.8 lb (4/30/2022) 5/7: 5/14: 5/21: 5/28: GW for May: 180 GW for 2022: 155 For exercise, I'm continuing what I started in April. 2 days per week each of…
  • I have a Google Pixel phone, which doesn't have a headphone jack, so I bought the Google Pixel Buds A-series Bluetooth headphones. I've dropped the case a couple of times, both with and without the buds in it. Good battery life, comfortable fit, stays put, haven't killed them with sweat yet. Before I got a phone without a…
  • Last weigh-in day of the month! Weigh-in day! Age: 30 Height: 5'3" SW 252.8 (11/13/2020) CW 188.6 (4/1/22) 4/2: 187.4 4/9: 186.4 4/16: 186.0 4/23: 187.4 4/30: 185.8 GW for April: Weigh less than my husband by 4/30 GW for 2022: 145 155, which is 30 lbs down from where I am now, with 30 weeks left in the year. So, the goal…
  • Is eating like that, with one or two bigger meals and several smaller snacks, actually creating a problem for you (like are you finding it hard to stick to your planned menu, or is eating on this schedule affecting your sleep/digestion/cognition/whatever else)? If not, you're probably fine to keep doing that. There's no…
  • Known issue that they've been working on for a week now, check for updates here: https://support.myfitnesspal.com/hc/en-us/articles/5716717249933 (also linked in the big yellow box top of the page on desktop)
  • I love Communists in the gazebo - I've heard Communists in the funhouse, which is also great, but "the gazebo" is an excellent euphemism for vagina, LMFAO (we'll see if the filter catches that). I think "Miss Strawberry" is Japanese (Ichigo-chan). I have a book I picked up years ago called Flow: The Cultural Story of…
  • Not everyone's goals and ways of eating are the same, and fat is an essential micronutrient.
  • @Cluelessmama1979 let me add to the attagirls, that's awesome and this internet stranger is proud of you! @bonniemcc4 fingers crossed your doc visit goes well! @justanotherloser007 oop, yeah you probably should have had gloves on for that, chemical AND physical abrasive at the same time is not great for the skin. at least…
  • @Cluelessmama1979 As a fellow shortie (5'3" on my best day), I've decided to hell with what the BMI charts and calculators think I "should" weigh. I've never been below 168 as an adult, and even then I was still fat, so I cannot conceive of being 125lbs, which is what the most generous calculator I've found says I "should"…
  • @porquenoirl do it! The story and postcard rewards are great little nuggets of motivation that come in at steady intervals - we haven't gotten the medals yet obviously but they look cool as hell in the promos. Especially if you're the type who is motivated by spending money LMAO. Note, they advertise a "refer x people and…
  • I've mostly been lurking this thread the past few days but I've skimmed the last page or two of posts and it looks like everyone is making progress and figuring stuff out. You love to see it. Welcome to the new folks sliding in right at the end of the month - glad to have you, hope you'll come with us into the May thread…
  • Take a look at this thread: https://community.myfitnesspal.com/en/discussion/10761904/under-1200-for-weight-loss Please be careful.
  • Ooooh, garlic and tarragon stir-fried brussels sprouts...I might save a sprout or two (maybe the BIG one?) and make me a little chef snack bc that sounds delicious. I think I should keep it simple for the family meal though, probably just quarter and roast with a little salt&pepper and fat of some kind - I'm cooking for…
  • Weigh-in day! Age: 30 Height: 5'3" SW 252.8 (11/13/2020) CW 188.6 (4/1/22) 4/2: 187.4 4/9: 186.4 4/16: 186.0 4/23: 4/30: GW for April: Weigh less than my husband by 4/30 GW for 2022: 145 Yeah, that tracks with how I've been eating this week. I'll take it, progress is progress. I am pretty pleased with the muscle definition…
  • Good morning ladies! We're about halfway through the month - if you've been struggling lately, there is still time to turn it around and finish strong. I'm sure I'm not the only one around here who is prone to the magical thinking of "if I didn't like the thing I ate for dinner, those calories don't count and it's OK to…
  • Lower weights for more reps will help build endurance, higher weights for fewer reps will help build strength. What are you aiming for?
  • So, you don't think you're eating enough carbs, but you've also cut out all major sources of carbohydrates. Are you asking for carb sources that aren't bread/wheat/oats/pasta/processed foods? I guess that would pretty much be fruit and veggies, and rice/beans/other legumes.
