  • Thinking Traps

    I would like to say I've always been consistent and wise in my desire to be more healthy.  I would like to say it but I'm not going to lie to you, I haven't always been and even now, I'm not perfect at it.  However, I've learned a few things since I...

  • The Fat lady at the golf course

    I want to be able to walk outside with our dogs, but the thought terrifies me. I haven't made much progress. It only takes a few minutes on the treadmill and I am huffing and puffing like an old steam locomotive, and I have to take breaks to catch my...

    Is it me, or just the posts that I happen to read? I have read some pretty creative excuses for falling off the wagon, overeating, and not succeeding at learning to eat healthy and exercise three times a week.People are pretty lazy. That is my perspe...

  • Both Sides Now

    An MFP friend invited me to do a FitBit challenge yesterday. I didn't know what that was but I agreed anyway! I have one real-life friend on FitBit, and she averages over 15,000 steps a day. She might weigh 100 pounds soaking wet. I aim for 12,000 bu...

  • I Keep Forgetting

    I had a plumber working in my house the other day. Young guy, mid-20s, mentioned he's a single dad, sounded like there is plenty of drama in his life. Nice, funny, hard working. Boy, was that poor kid fat. I felt so bad because it was a physical job ...

  • It's The Great Pumpkin Butt Charlie Brown!

    I joined MFP in Fall of 2014.  It was the FIRST time that I had successfully lost weight.  I didn’t use any  supplements, weight loss programs or  gimmicks.  It was just me, hard work, exercise and determination.   I had a stable job with a decent sa...

  • 50 pounds lost, no one cares, no one notices - Does it even Matter?

    I am half way towards my weight loss goal. The sad part is I am still morbidly obese and even when I make my goal weight, I will still be in the overweight range.  In fact, I am so big that people can't even tell that I have lost weight.  50 pounds a...

  • In his Eyes

    I often wonder why my husband never said anything about my weight gain. I doubled in weight and size over the years. Of course, he noticed so why didn't he say anything? The other night I watched him doze off. He looked tired - work had been crazy l...

  • Man in the Mirror

    I promised myself when I decided to start... ahem ...‘blogging’, that I would be a 100% honest with myself, and you. I guess that’s the luxury anonymity affords you. You’re able to put more of yourself out there. So at least in my alter ego, I’m goin...

  • Take Five

    I've lost five out of the hundred or more pounds I need to lose. Such a small percentage!  But... --I wouldn't leave a nickel on the street--my kids would be thrilled if their teacher added five points to a test --having five of something is consider...

  • In the year 2525

    So I think I originally 'discovered' MyFitnessPal in 2006, and used it on our only computer, the family desktop. I couldn't conceive of a simpler way of logging food--in the 90s my girlfriends and I had been writing everything we ate in steno pads, a...

  • The Look

    I'm not completely sure, but I think I got "The Look" at the grocery store this morning! I saw someone I know casually, for the first time in months. She got a little squinty-eyed. Out loud, we talked only about our children and their school adventur...
