  • I’m currently still waiting on an MRI. My doctor is almost 100% sure it is a torn meniscus. The MRI couldn’t be scheduled until 9/16. So I’m just sitting here waiting, seeing what I can do without causing a lot of pain. My birthday started out pretty good with a trip to St Louis. But while there, got a call about my former…
  • Every time I feel like things are going well, something happens. I'm going to remain positive, but goodness...I just want to continue on my journey without obstacles! :D So, first so happy news, I finally met my first goal and got out of the 190's I have been struggling in. The sad news, I am not sure how long it will…
  • @IMGLAMRUS2 I sent you a friend request. I try to post a lot on my news feed just for accountability for myself and hopefully share some ideas that work for me as inspiration for others. My 12 year old daughter has recently become interested in cosmetology. I don't know the technical name, but she has asked for one of…
  • Last week was another challenge with the start of school, increase in sports activity and my husband was out of town for work so it all fell on me. I really didn’t make the right choices and still didn’t find my new routine. I’ve been putting off getting on the scale because I am really scared of what it is going to say.…
  • @PatriceFitnessPal To be completely honest, I totally fell off the wagon the last two weeks. I just have not been able to find a routine after switching my hours. I had to have a nice long talk with myself yesterday about getting back on track, so I am spending this week trying to establish the new routine. I did get up…
  • I didn't do a very good job holding myself accountable this past weekend. I am not really sure what happened, but it did. All I can do at this point is remember how I feel today and move forward, so that is what I am doing. I started my new schedule today so that means doing my morning walk on the treadmill instead of…
  • As of this morning, I am 1/2 a pound away from my first goal (to get out of these 190's I've been stuck in forever)!! I am going to make it happen this week :) July was a pretty busy month and was spent trying to get back into the swing of things, organizing and finding my routine. Days I have to deviate from my routine,…
  • My week started off not so good, but I am determined to turn it around! I am covering for someone on vacation (in addition to my own duties), so I am putting in some extra time there. My husband has to go to work an hour earlier than normal for the next few weeks, so my morning routine is all off track. I like to walk…
  • I lost a lot of weight several years ago, but it didn't last. However, then I was doing it for the wrong reasons. Now, I am doing it for myself, because I want to feel better and be healthier overall. I am currently just tracking calories, making healthier food choices and trying to increase my activity. I post a lot on my…
  • So, I have started working on a big life purge. I don't like to hold to on to things that don't have value to me anymore, but I have a whole lot of junk sitting around. I have a garage, shed and basement that I am going to be working on. My goal with my purge is to make room for a weight bench that both me and my boys can…
  • @annliz23 I love that quote! It is so true. Since I started on my "fitness" journey, I have made so many changes and it feels great! I am working on purging in all areas of my life. I am working on my house, getting rid of all the junk I don't need sitting around. I am hoping that will allow me to make room for a workout…
  • @highmaintnance I liked it so much I also ordered the body measuring tape. It is supposed to be here tomorrow. I hope it works as well as the scale does. And Happy Belated Birthday, I hope you got to enjoy it!
  • @PatriceFitnessPal I went with the Renpho scale. It had pretty good reviews on Amazon. They compared it to other scales that were a lot more expensive and said it was comparable, and it was on sale for $20. The weight measurements were consistent. It has an app that is easy to use and does calculate body fat, among other…
  • In my quest to build a happy, healthy life...I have to surround myself with people on the same mission as me, in various aspects of my life. I have a very supportive family, but when it comes to this aspect of my life, they are not on the same mission. So you guys are my people...those I surround myself with on my health…
  • @georgiapch70 I have 5 of them, and none of them like the same things. It's a pain sometimes but we are finding ways around it. I don't have time to cook two meals and they need to eat healthier too! If we are having something that doesn't fit within my limits, I have been eating a salad first, then reducing the less…
  • Today I ordered a new scale and I can't wait to throw the other two I have away. I really hope this one works as well as the Amazon reviews said it does. The two I have never take consistent measurements. I can step on and off 3 different times and get 3 very widely different weights. They both do the same thing and…
  • @mattphilly22 I feel you...we like to camp and have game nights with family. It's just so hard to eat healthy. But I am trying!
  • My husband always tells me, "you know you did the exercise, it's fine". And I'm like...but it didn't count :D Technology, gotta love it. Oh well, I think it's finally fixed. The being short 45 seconds would drive me crazy too. I'm pretty sure that won't happen with me, I am not a night owl! Good luck the rest of your month!
  • @lmf1012 I looked that up too. But all my morning walks are about the same. I go the same route every day and it takes about the same amount of time. It is supposed to be a "brisk walk" to count and my heart rate was always above 130. I even walked 2 miles with my husband once who is 8 inches taller that me so it takes…
  • It's been about 13 years since I had my last baby :D But I have at least 50 pounds to lose. I try to post quite a bit on my feed and will encourage you along the way. Right now, I am monitoring my calorie intake and trying to increase my workout activity (morning walks, walking breaks and trying to get in at least one…
  • Awesome job. Me and my apple watch have a rocky relationship. Some days I will go on my morning walk and I get no exercise minutes. Other days I get 20. It is great motivation though! I reset my calibration data and now it seems to be working consistent. Maybe I will join you for the rest of July! I am not sure I have had…
  • @LucyMarks1752 I lost weight about the same time period and also gained it all back. I was so motivated then and have struggled since getting mentally back in that place. My life has changed a lot since then too. I'm taking small steps with my changes, but I am already feeling so much better!
  • @highmaintnance I just have free weights and find a workout based on whatever I want to target that day. I like the gym and would probably get better results, but I have no idea what I am doing and just seem to stick with it more at home. My pre-planning this weekend has really helped so far this week. Monday's we are…
  • @strezz_iz_my_middlename I will add you also. We are very similar. I have been on and off this app for several years, hovering in the 190's for about the last 3. I am not necessarily worried about a scale number, I just want to feel healthy again. I am working on logging all my food, making healthier choices and getting…
  • @highmaintnance if only we didn't have to work, right? I got so much done this weekend and stayed on track pretty well. Now I am back today, ready for another stressful week and feel like I am starving already :D Good luck this week with the stress and the added strength training. I am doing mine at home, but I am going to…
  • @jsmuda2012 I've done the same, tried so many different programs and always giving up. What I found for me was that so many of them took too much time and I gave up quickly because I would get stressed. I have found just simply tracking my food on MFP works best. I don't currently pay attention to macros or anything else,…
  • @PatriceFitnessPal Happy Birthday! Hope you enjoy your day and your meals!!
  • @georgiapch70 I too have been off and on for years, more off than on lately and I can feel it. Everything is starting to hurt! Not all my goals are the same as yours, but I am trying to work out daily. I am walking on by breaks at work and have a goal of at least 30 minutes of exercise per night. Right now I am shooting…
  • 41 here, but feeling a lot older physically. I've put on a lot of weight the last few years, and my hips and back are feeling it. Time to get off this yo-yo cycle I've been on and get serious! I find a lot of support and motivation when I am active with these threads, you all are great! I'm ready to feel healthy again!!…
