  • I've had it twice, once in each shoulder. I had a rough few months where I had it in both shoulders at once. I went to physical therapy. I did push it, but not too hard. Honestly, the most helpful exercise was spelling the alphabet with my arm extended (like I was writing in a big wall). I got more range of motion that…
  • I just checked my body fat with Athlete Mode on and again with it off. 20.3% with it on...29% with it off! For me, at least, it seems more accurate with it off, even though I find that very disheartening as I have months of data with it on. I'm 5'1" and weigh 130.
  • I have the same scale and I've been confused about my reported body fat. It's very strange. I previously had a Weight Watchers scale and it would always say I was 30-33% fat. I lost 90 lbs and I stayed nearly the same fat percentage, according to my WW scale. That scale died, so I bought the Renpho, which says I'm at about…
  • GrowWithJo and Caroline Girvan!
  • I'm doing pretty well this weekend! I've had a few bad days with my diet. I'm not sure why I'm having such a hard time with diet lately! I just keep making bad choices. Overall, I'm doing well, though. I have two half-marathons coming up. I just did one in April and I've been running consistently enough that I know I can…
  • I have been pre-diabetic three times in my life. I have finally gotten off the roller coaster and I have maintained a healthy A1C (it stays around 4.9 or 5.0) for several years. I have never been able to stick to a low-carb diet, but I do try to make sensible choices. I don't eat a lot of bread anymore, and lately I've…
  • I'm also from SP. My friends on there were mostly inactive, so I hope to make friends here. Feel free to add me.
  • Intermittent fasting is pointless if you aren't watching calories.
  • Hmm. I am 5'0" and 127 lbs. I'm quite active and MFP has my calorie budget at 1600! I used to weigh 250 lbs and it did take me years to lose weight. It's basically at a crawl now (my goal is 115) but I found that I'm far more successful in the long-run if I don't cut calories too much. If I go too low, then I tend to…
  • I started running in 2019. I have a couple of half-marathons coming up. I've run the distance a few times now, which is pretty shocking to me. I'm thinking of doing a marathon in 2022, but I'll wait to commit to that when I see how I feel after the next couple of big races.
  • I have been using collagen for a while but I'm going to phase it out because I am trying to go plant-based. I'm going to use up what I have at home and then try a vegan collagen booster and see how I like that. The most notable difference was in my fingernails. Holy moly, did they grow! I have never, and I mean NEVER, had…
  • Maybe check thyroid? I have PCOS and Hashimoto's. I have had massive weight fluctuations, but I have lost weight and maintained for years. What worked for me: t3 and t4 supplementation (which can be difficult because a lot of doctors don't prescribe both), Metformin, high-protein diet, low sugar, track and measure all my…
  • I'm slowly transitioning to a plant-based diet. I haven't eaten meat in over 25 years (I am 42) and I'm starting to veer towards veganism but I have a few things I haven't given up yet. I'm working on it. Calorie-counting is the only thing that's worked for me! As long as I'm consistent with tracking, I can lose or at…
  • I'd like to join in, too. I'm 42 years old and have about 10 lbs to lose. That may not sound like much, but I've already lost 120! My weight has been on a slow downward trend for several years and I'm happy with that, but there is room for improvement. Even if the number on the scale doesn't change, I need more muscle. I…
  • Thought I'd introduce myself. I'm 42 and started running in late 2019. I started running longer distances right before covid hit, so my races got postponed, but I like running half-marathon distances and my first in-person race is in August. I'm thinking about running a marathon in 2022, but I'm scared! I love my weekly…
  • I'm also a Sparker. I like the food database here better. I weigh all of my food and I often have to make a new entry on SP because their food database doesn't know how to calculate serving sizes. I'm sad to leave because I'd been on SP since 2008 and it helped me a lot. However, the things I liked about it are available…
  • I have PCOS. I struggled with it quite badly in my teens and early 20s, but I'm doing better now at age 42. I was able to lose 120 lbs, very slowly, through diligent work. You can add me. I'm new and have no friends here (I just switched over from Sparkpeople).

  • I'm from SP, too. I actually wanted to try MFP ages ago, but I had all my regular foods and groups saved with SP and I didn't want to start over. I've been on SP since 2008 and it's the only thing that's worked for me! I can do the same thing here, though, and I actually know more people here. I actually like the food…
