If you keep your goals in mind and celebrate the wins, even 25 lbs is a huge accomplishment, you will get there. Just don't put yourself down, it takes strength to realize that you…
  • I've found that lately when I log in, in the morning, that exercise calories have been added back into my daily amounts thereby reducing my calories for the day, and I don't understand why. anyone else seeing this? I have set myself at "sedentary" level which gives me 1,330 calories per day, and this morning I had 56…

  • I have been wanting a steak with home fries, almost ordered it to be delivered last week, but didn't.... NSV for me...

  • I received my first dose of the Pfizer vaccine on April 26th, no side effects other than a sore arm and a migraine the following day. Did not notice any weight gains. I now have a 12 week wait for the second dose - but so happy to be half way there.......

  • Woke up feeling energetic and used that to make headway into my weekly step goal...
  • My first thought is that you are not eating enough.... Your body needs more than 1,000 - 1,100 calories a day just to function. If you are eating below that your body thinks you are not feeding it enough and holds on to your weight... I had that happen to me too, and once I started upping my calories - now set at 1,330 per…
  • Wow is all I can say, even with the issue of never feeling full, look how far you have come. I hope you find the answers that you need to deal with the hunger, and I love hearing you say that you are is small steps, one at a time that will get us to where we want to be and it looks like you have come a long…

  • The exercise is from my Fitbit which I have syncing to MFP. I did 3- 40 minute sessions throughout the day and then an hour and a half walk later in the afternoon, which gave me just over 30K steps in total. I am 53, 5'4", weight is 193 and while I do have a sedentary job where I sit a lot, I also do a lot of daily walking…
  • So along these lines, I have a question. With the exercise I did today, I am still in a negative calorie situation. Should I be eating more? These are my numbers: Goal - 1,330 Food - 1271 Exercise - 1524 Net - 253 Should I at least eat the rest of the -253, or should I be eating more?
