  • New Year...New You! Feel free to add me! Open diary for meals and I am fairly active with workouts. Looking to inspire and to be inspired by you. I have previously focused on losing weight, but now I am looking to focus on fat loss and nutrition more. Healthy You, Healthy Me...Let's go for it!
  • Anyone looking for some additional motivation and support to start off the new year! I've got big goals and can use extra support as well. Feel free to add me. Open diary, workouts and inspo.
  • Feel free to add me if you like! I try to be as active and supportive as I can! Let's inspire one another! There are no limits when you believe anything is possible!
  • I'll join in on the Halo Top Band Wagon. It's a bit pricey but I'd rather spend a little more than to give up ice cream entirely. I've tried 3 flavors so far and loved them all. It's light, but doesn't compromise taste. Each flavor is at least half the calories and less carbs than the equivalent regular store version.…
  • Feel free to add me if you like. Foodie, Active, Supportive. Lost about 90lbs while on this app/site. Open Food Diary..Let's crush some goals!
  • Feel free to add me if you like. Lost over 60lbs logging in 2016 with hard work, discipline, encouragement and support found on this site. Let's make 2017 a great one!
  • For me, it was being committed and consistent. I recommend setting your goals in MFP, and log daily, even when you miss the mark (develops an accountability habit). As you progress examine your eating habits and start incorporating more healthy options into your meals. I also recommend finding creative and fun ways to…
  • Feel free to add me. I am active on this app. Lost 64lbs total so far this year and this app has helped!
  • Feel free to add me. Let yesterday's obstacles be the story behind today's success!
  • Feel free to add me. I'm down 60 plus this year overall and all about a healthier lifestyle.
  • There can be many sources of motivation. For me, I didn't like the way I felt, looked, how my clothes fit or what the doctors were telling me. I looked in the mirror and saw where I was and envisioned where I wanted to be. Then I decided to work and research on how to get there. It required hard work, being active,…
  • My go to is a Jimmy Dean Delights Whole Grain English Muffin with egg white, turkey sausage, and cheese and a protein shake made with almond milk and half a banana.
  • Had to really work hard this week. I went on a barbecue sightseeing cruise on Thursday and Ribfest on Friday. I must admit that I am a foodie working extremely hard to lose I remained active and did a lot of walking to help compensate for the treats. On a positive note, I had an annual checkup on Friday and…
  • I plan a cheat day once per week most of the time as a reward. I typically plan my food diary days in advance including cheat days if possible. By cheat day I mean I will treat myself for a meal out or cook something that I enjoy, but that is not a part of my regular more healthy routine. I still try to be accountable in…
  • I have tried a whey isolate protein shake blended with banana and almond milk, salmon, and chicken breast on flatbread as alternatives lately. Good luck and you got this!
  • Congrats to everyone on their losses thus far and encouragement to keep pressing on...We got this! SW: 264 (2/10/16) CW: 209 (8/24/16) GW: 185 8/31-206.6 9/7 9/14 9/21 9/28 10/5 10/12 10/19 10/26 11/2 11/9 11/16 11/23 11/30 12/7 12/14 12/21
  • I'm in! I could use all of the accountability as possible to get through the Holidays! My day to record is "weigh in" Wednesday though.. Lol. We got this! SW: 264 CW: 209 GW: 185
  • Integrated Solutions Whey Isolate Powder is great. I enjoy both Chocolate and Vanilla. 20 grams of Protein per serving.
  • I won't judge, but I wouldn't recommend going that route if possible. I have had issues with losing weight and gaining it back in the past myself. I have re-committed since mid-February and taken over 50 lbs off this year. If I can do it, you can too! If you can conquer the mental and emotional triggers, you can make the…
  • Feel Free to add me if you like. We can all use some motivation in our journeys! Good luck!
  • If you don't have any nut allergies, you may consider trying almond milk if cow based milk continues to give you problems. While I don't think it tastes better as a stand alone drink in comparison to cow based milk, it mixes quite well and provides a nice taste. I use it for my whey isolate shakes and when I occasionally…
