    Hello everyone. My name Is Eddie I am 30 and just starting MFP. I am here to reach my physical goals of getting back down to 185-190 of lean mean beer drinking running machine. I have always been very fit but I got a new job that requires me to sit more often and one year in along with turning 30 has me less than enthused about my weight gain.

    I am on a run plan to prep for my first full marathon so I'm running at a minimum 15 miles a week, I am also lifting to keep from losing muscle while I cut back on the calories. Looking forward to getting to know some of you and getting some accountability partners in this journey.

    I'm Jackie, 34, from Massachusetts. I've been on and off this bandwagon way too many times, and I need some support from some friends! I'm a teacher, so it's never guaranteed how much I'm sitting or walking. I love to cook, so making my own healthy meals is definitely within my wheelhouse. Please add me!!

    Hi! I'm Krystal, 35, and currently in South Carolina. I'm not new to MFP but still finding my way around the MFP community. I've been on my latest (and hopefully last) mission to lose weight for over a year now with about 100lbs more to lose. I enjoy traveling, listening to music, going to the beach, being a gymrat, and cooking healthy meals not just for myself but for friends and family too.

    I welcome all add requests.

    Hi I am Nici. I turned 30 on the 4th and two days ago was told I have high cholesterol. This worries me due to history of heart issues on both sides of my family. I have a good 35lbs minimum I need to lose.

    Hi, I’m Liz. I’m 36 years old and I live in San Antonio, Texas. I’m a Breast Cancer survivor, teacher, and mom. I love food, and find it very hard to diet, so my goal is to eat in a balanced way that allows me to try new foods, but keeps me on track. I’m joining for support when it gets tough to make the right choices

    Hello! This is the beginning of my weight loss journey. I'm 33, 5'11" and weigh 364 lbs. I'm hoping joining a couple groups will help keep me accountable for my goal of getting down to at least 240lb. I am very excited about this, and look forward to sharing my journey, long though it may be. Never give up! Never Surrender!!

    Hey, I’m Tom, I’m 35 and from the UK. I’ve just started working out again after giving up my gym membership over 10 years ago. Now it’s time to get back into the shape I was in my 20s. I’m 19 weeks in and making good progress so far. I’ve used MFP to lose weight and to gain weight and happy to add friends to join the journey.

    Hi all!! I am 32, and have approximately 100 lbs to lose. I am not new to MFP. However life circumstances kinda beat me up. I am now in a stable situation and able to get my weight back under control. I eat fast food way too much since I dont have access to a kitchen. But I'm doing my best to get healthy despite that obstacle.

    Feel free to add me.

    Hello -38 here :)

    I'm an introvert (INFP), dog lover (have two rescue girls), geek, gamer, and artist. My guy and I have been together since 2000.

    Nearly a decade ago I did so well dropping nearly 40lbs on WW, but unfortunately bounced back and now have to lose double that amount. Since January 7th I'm down 8lbs. so 75 more to go!

    I have a desk job and with gaming I'm sitting most of the time. Being raised without exercise doesn't help either. My family is riddled with diabetes, high blood pressure, and knee problems due to weight.

    I'm going to start using my idle treadmill at least 3 times a week, but mostly I'm trying to stick within my calories based on what MFP and my Fitbit calculations tell me.

    I could really use some support and motivation. :/

    Hi Im Laurie

    The short version of my long crazy road is that i checked out after my husband died suddenly and slowly i have been working on a comeback.

    So i started to pay attention and well crap i am now 38 (still mind boggling to think that)

    I have decided that for 2020 i am going to re-find happy. Part of that is working on becoming physically healthy... One month down (a completed 30day yoga challenge) Eleven more to go on this journey

    Best wishes for success and happiness everyone :)

    Hi! I'm Jesi and I'm 30. Back in 2011-2012 I lost 48lbs by using MFP, then I graduated college, life happened and here I sit at 320 (+70lbs).

    I've been using MFP religiously again since the new year and always welcome new MFPals to connect with! I'm getting married June 2021 so I have more motivation to drop some lbs!

    Hi, everyone! I'm Laura, 35, in Massachusetts. This is my second go around on MFP, the first being three years ago when I dropped 45 pounds. Unfortunately, once the weight was gone, so were my good habits, and here I am again.... only this time with even more to lose!

    I started early February and have lost 14 so far, with another 50 to go. I'm loving checking in on the app several times a day and keeping myself accountable by logging all of my food. I am a math teacher, and I very much enjoy the numbers side of the game.

    In my spare time I love to cook, be outdoors, decorate, and spend time at home with my boyfriend and our two furbabies. Looking forward to cheering all of you on!

    Hullo all! I'm Erin/Lula, 31, and from the Houston Texas area. I'm married to a wonderful husband with no kids (yet), but work as an infant daycare teacher/caregiver. My husband and I are huge nerds and have both led pretty less than active adulthoods. I'm currently looking to lose around 30-40 lbs and get back to a healthier weight and build a healthier lifestyle (also to get into shape for nerd hobbies).
