  • @nbbaby and @andi_uk — Welcome! Some people make a direct friend request and then stay accountable to a particular buddy via the ‘friends’ section; but I visit this thread a couple times a week to post my short term goals and report on my progress. I’m also willing to check in daily if others are interested and want to…
  • I love seeing our team in the top three performers AGAIN this week. Congratulations @partaz, @chublet25, and @twitch82!! It’s inspiring to see so many people reaching new milestones, learning more about themselves, and finding ways to overcome any obstacles along the path to better health! Keep up the good work, everyone.…

  • @cre804 - Thinking if you today as you have to consume that nasty colonoscopy ‘prep’ drink. I hope everything goes smoothly for you tomorrow/ Monday! It took a bad experience with my first scan for me to learn to prepare the whole week ahead of the procedure, by gradually eating the recommended diet, instead of reading the…
  • I haven’t had any trouble with this but I appreciate you sharing your experience in case others have noticed a problem. Thanks for taking action to let the MFP staff know about it and I hope it’s resolved for you soon.
  • You can definitely reach your goal @coblujay! I didn’t make any drastic changes; instead, I built energy and momentum through incremental steps that led to better daily habits. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other. I appreciate all the supportive comments posted after my weigh in day. Thank you for adding to…

  • Congratulations to both of you, @chublet25 🎉🐴 🎉 How exciting! When will Laughing Terror make the move to join you? Do you have to socialize him with your other horses? 🐎🐎🐎 You both look great in the photo and I can see the strong connection. I especially love the expression in his eyes in that moment of interaction! Enjoy…
  • My usual rowing time was canceled due to bad weather today so we did a shorter ‘mat’ workout (e.g., squats and push ups) and used light weights for some tricep and lat exercises. So, I came home to get my ladder up challenge done right away. ✅ Monday: 10 min. abs; 1 pull up ✅ Tuesday: 11 min. abs; 1 pull up; 30-sec. hang…
  • 🤣😂🤣 - It’s a toss up for me. Everything seems to be deteriorating at the same ‘warp speed’ pace! Here’s my Thursday update: ✅ Monday: 10 min. abs; 1 pull up ✅ Tuesday: 11 min. abs; 1 pull up; 30-sec. hang on bar ✅ Wednesday: 12 min. abs; 2 pull ups ✅ Thursday: 13 min. abs; 2 pull ups; 30-sec. hang on bar I’m continuing to…
  • @TerriRichardson112 - I made a request to the MFP moderators to consider switching the placement order of the heart/hug icon and the disagree icons to help eliminate the accidental selection while scrolling on a phone. You can see the request and weigh in with your thoughts here:…
  • I was able to reach my goal weight and maintain it for the past week. So, I’m checking in with the GOAL ZONE Maintenance Group. Are there some active members here? I think there are at least 3-4 of us based on recent responses. How are things going for you? I appreciate the insights and advice offered in earlier posts. I’m…
  • PatriceFitnessPal Weigh-in Day: Thursday PW: 125.5 CW: 124.7 SW: 168 I’ve lost a little more than 40 pounds and achieved my goal weight of 125 pounds. It’s time to solidify my positive nutrition and fitness habits so I can sustain the results long term. The ‘maintenance phase’ requires lifelong application of what I’ve…
  • Sunday started with a ‘baseline’ test of how many pull ups I could do, and I was able to complete three (with legs swinging a bit too much). ✅ Monday: 10 min. abs; 1 pull up ✅ Tuesday: 11 min. abs; 1 pull up; 30-sec. hang on bar ✅ Wednesday: 12 minute abs; 2 pull ups Each day, I’ve started with three pull ups. Then, after…
  • @kiay131982 - I am typically more accountable to showing up for other people’s goals than my own. So, I completely understand how you can start the day planning to exercise and then get caught up in other priorities. For me, my job and teens always took precedence over my workout. I tried early morning rowing and had to be…
  • The 30-second hang on the bar was more difficult than I thought it would be — 😅 but I got through it. ✅ Monday: 10 min. abs; 1 pull up ✅ Tuesday: 11 min. abs; 1 pull up; 30-sec. hang on bar Keep up the good work. It’s fun to see everyone challenging themselves to reach new goals!
  • @bionicpuffy - If you are exercising more, your body might be holding onto water to help with muscle repair. Typically, I’m not someone who cites water retention as a likely source of weight gain - and it’s always wise to reflect on your nutrition, as you noted in your comment - but the fact that you are exercising more…
  • I guess I should have started my ‘ladder up’ 🪜 goal-setting on Sunday so I tested out how many pull ups I could do as a ‘baseline’ yesterday. I did three but my legs were swinging more than I’d like so I’ll try to improve throughout the week. I was able to accomplish the goal for today: Monday: 10 minute abs and 1 pull up.…
  • I’ve accomplished my weight loss goal and many of my fitness goals. So, now I’m working on maintenance for the coming year. Thank you to all the Accountability buddies who have been supporting and encouraging me on this community thread. The winter will be my biggest challenge because I can’t participate in my rowing…
  • I’ve been working to strengthen my abs and I would love to be able to do a few pull ups. So, here’s a rough plan for the week, which I may need to adjust based on what I learn along the way: -Monday: 10 minute abs; 1 pull up -Tuesday: 11 minute abs; 1 pull up & 30-second hang on the bar -Wednesday: 12 minute abs; 2 pull…
  • @roz0810 - I hope you enjoyed your birthday! @drollings2019 - I’m so sorry to hear about your loss and your possible torn meniscus. My husband has had the same knee trouble but he was dedicated to his rehabilitation program following surgery and recovered well. I hope your knee feels better soon and the MRI determines you…
  • PatriceFitnessPal Weigh-in Day: Thursday PW: 126 CW:125.5 SW: 168 Thanks to all the members of the group who have been contributing to this team space, the habit tracker, and the weekly challenges. I can feel the positive energy and your commitment is inspiring! Have a great week, Shrinking Assets!
  • @Anniesquats100 - I’m sorry to hear about your broken freezer. It’s a good thing you noticed quickly so you could make sure the contents didn’t spoil! @Angelic843 and @Be_theBest_Me - Every day is a new opportunity to be the person we are each striving to be. Good for you, putting the past in the past and moving forward…
  • @chublet25 - I hadn’t noticed that many new members don’t get around to posting but I’m interested in figuring out how we can support them through the ‘initiation’ phase. Maybe we could ‘friend’ new members to welcome them and encourage participation? What do other group members think contributes to a sense of identity or…
  • @kiay131982 - 💯 agree about the baffling emphasis on makeup 6 hours before the ceremony. I would definitely mess up anything they did to me over that period of time. They’d have to add a layer of shellac (varnish?) to keep my makeup in place. I hope they let you eat! I felt a little strange on my wedding day, as if I was…
  • @jazzadesigns, @TeresaW1020 and @trooworld - Thank you so much for all the helpful information and app recommendation! I’ll look into at and appreciate the tips you’ve learned about using Chronometer. What a great community!
  • I’m hoping someone in this group can help me figure out how to review the MFP nutrition data so I can learn how much natural sugar I had versus added sugar. When I select ‘sugar’ from the nutrition list, I can see the grams of sugar consumed and a goal, which is different every day, but I don’t see a category (or…
  • @kiay131982 - I’m still blushing ☺️ from your sweet comments. The feeling is mutual. I ebb and flow but I try to keep improving. A work in progress and very much still working daily at getting better. How did your dress shopping go? I think it’s wonderful that you’ve been asked to be both a bridesmaid and grooms[wo]man!…
  • Here’s my final update for the week 1 challenge: Saturday (1) Sleep 7-8 hours each night ✅ (2) Workout at least 30 minutes ✅ (3) Complete 10 minutes of daily abdominal exercises ✅ (4) Drink at least 64 ounces of water ✅ (5) Stay within my calorie target ❎ I was +79 calories over my daily target today. I’m sure I’ll make up…
  • It’s so interesting to find patterns in the MFP data. It can be so rewarding to learn more about the underlying problem. Now that you are aware of it, it will be much easier to solve the problem or undo a bad habit and replace it with a better one. For managing my sweet tooth, I’ve found fruit works well for me. If it’s…
