  • Yep they emailed members at the time, I did as told and changed. It immediately Last year I had a string of scam messages using that old password, reported those scammers immediately as I was well aware that they had bought old information
  • I'm never hungry when I wake up but always hungry at night So I don't eat until 1 to 2pm and have lunch, dinner at 6pm and supper about 9pm So long as you keep to your deficit it doesn't matter what time you eat, just try to stop before you fall asleep waking up with a mouthful of food isn't fun 😂
  • My last lot of bloods were deficiencies in vitamin D, calcium and iron I'm not sure I want to know what's gone south now 😂
  • My weights been going up and down the same few pounds since I had covid in december I think for me it's the fatigue. I'm so sluggish my exercise is no where near my usual amount which is putting me near maintenance since I havnt dropped my calories My doctor took bloods yesterday which have been flagged so I have to go for…
  • The half naked soft porn looking accounts don't really want friends I just reject those And I never click on links even from long term friends without an explanation of what it is and why they are sending it to me
  • Definitely a referral to a dietitian is the way to go I was bmi 40 in my last pregnancy after a rapid drop from bmi 70 She became invaluable as I was very unwell, she could tailor my diet in and out of hospital depending on what my body was doing at the time There's no way I could have kept myself balanced without her…
  • I'm pretty much living on soft foods due to jaw problems Soups and stews blended, mash and cheese, very soft mac and cheese I can fork mash and get down Porridge, rice pudding, Greek yogurt, custards etc I eat very slowly to give my body time to feel fuller, if I eat while I'm busy and not paying attention then yep I end…
  • I was given 5 years to live 😬 I was virtually immobile and as the mum of a disabled child she needed me to be able to lift her and move around carrying her I had been told I couldn't have anymore children....... After I lost the first 100lb I had a suprise pregnancy (second trimester loss) and then fell pregnant again with…
  • There's also a genetic element to how skin ages My mum died age 70 with hardly any wrinkles and she couldn't moisturise/use sun screen as she had no movement in her arms I'm closing in on 40 and have my mums skin type, hardly a wrinkle and ill be honest I only moisturise once in a blue moon as I'm so busy I'm a wash and…
  • Should point out I have 2 kids 15 year old girl with cerebral palsy and autism And my 5 year old boy born mid weight loss who's a ball of pure energy 😂
  • Thank you, it had to be done. I was given 5 years to live and was the single mum of a disabled child Losing weight made my son a possibility I was told I couldn't have more kids, we can't imagine life without him now and I can keep up with the kids (my son has autism and ADHD) and I can hike for hours with him on my back…
  • I joined February 2012 So far I've lost just over 170lb I lost and gained the same bit the first 2 years then slowed to standstill in 2016 with my suprise baby I still have 60-80lb to go I'm no longer virtually immobile
  • I take calcium and vitamin D as I have severe deficiencies and calcium is apparently leeching out my bones and teeth, doctor advised I try not to fall over 🙄 I take iron and folic acid due to deficiencies I have b12 injections on a regular schedule as I'm unable to absorb orally I take a double dose of multivitamin as per…
  • I weigh daily and log it on a weight trending app to smooth out the water fluctuations I have a digital scale that sends the weight to my phone because without my glasses on I can't see squat just blurs where the numbers should be The scales app on my phone shows me what my bmi is and a load of other things that aren't…
  • I started at almost 400lb and pretty immobile Creating a calorie deficit by weighing and logging ALL my food and measuring and logging all fluids with calories was the only thing I could do I set up my profile on MFP, they gave me a fairly high daily calorie go due to my size and I just needed to fit my food to that goal…
  • Mushrooms, lots of mushrooms (1.5kg and I top up at local shop) Quorn ham slices Whichever fruit my son has decided is the only fruit he eats that week
  • I caught it in December from my kiddos My 5 year old (non verbal ASD/ADHD) was calmer than normal, no bouncing about for 5 days with one super aggressive day which I think was likely pain related and then he was back to normal My older vulnerable child had horrific headaches, few days of cough and took a month to get her…
  • I've you've never needed one it's understandable you wouldn't know what it is Mine is rigid over my back with a wide strap that comes round the front from under bust down to my stomach with additional straps to move my shoulders back to a better position I also have braces for my feet as my joints are lax My daughter grew…
  • I have to wear a back brace on and off as my spines curved thanks to posture (my boobs appeared at 7 years old, I learnt to slump forward to disguise them) When I have the brace on, girl where did those boobs pop out from 😂
  • I don't meet your requirements as I'm a 38 year old who's had 2 kids first I expressed for 18 months with, second I breastfed for 4 years I'll tell you now the only people to make comments about my big not so pearky boobs are women, men have never had anything but compliments Work on the muscles by all means to help with…
  • I spent £400 on an elliptical during first lockdown as we were sheilding and I didn't know how long we would be indoors for In the end its been worth the money as I've made it to the gym literally for 4 weeks this year, we are back in sheilding but my weight loss and fitness was on track until just before Christmas (took a…
  • Oh bless you, I hope your mum's picking up We caught it just before Christmas My daughter is on the extremely clinically vulnerable list here (UK) We shielded with her for 5 months and then we're told she had to return to school, the government, local council and NHS said schools were safe, that she had to attend school…
  • I keep one and my closest male friend knows my daily weight, deficit and my cycle When I get unusually pissed off about weight going randomly up he reminds me to go check my Callander, he's always right for cause of gains
  • I have fitbit charge 2, will upgrade to the 4 in the sales It's worth it for me, I'm real sedentary without the push it gives me, we are talking less than 1000 steps if I'm stuck at home I like the heart rate element for health reasons as if I dip under 50 beats I have to call my GP, over 110 I have to call my GP.
  • We've been members of our local litter picking group for 3 years now It's nice to get out, chat with the other members and the general public while getting in steps and improving the community
  • I spent the day at a stately home. Love going to them I only book to visit the gardens (today's was 1880 acres) and I walk looking at the sculptures, the scenery, the plants etc My legs are protesting now (joint issues and conditions) but while I'm out I don't notice I also love to hike, I'm on the edge of the peak…
  • I take Cbd for stretches when trying to show my pain team that it's not going to magically help me Tried various brands, strengths, built it up over time etc...... Nope In that time I've lost, gained and maintained all based on weather in weighing my food and sticking to my goal
  • I started at 387lb I could hardly walk even with a walking stick. My daughter had a physical disability one day she came out of school in so much pain she couldn't walk to the car, another mum, a fit and healthy one had to carry her for me My doctors had given me an experation date of 5 years, I wasn't ready to die After…
  • If it goes in my mouth then I count it because even if I don't count it my body will
