New to MFP-Looking to lose 30 pounds

Hello B)
My name is Valerie. I'm new to MFP and looking to lose 30 pounds. Being petite (I'm 5'0) presents its own set of challenges on the weightloss journey. Because of hy height, My goal is to stay under 1200 calories per day. MFP is doing an excellent job showing me how much those empty calories truly add up. I'm also seeing how imperative it is to include daily exercise in my routine to reach my goal. I didn't gain this extra weight overnight so I know it's going to take time and motivation to lose it. I can definitely use all the motivation and encouragement I can get, so please feel free to add me! Good luck everyone!

    The fact that you understand it's going to take motivation and time is the number one important thing! I'm also petite at 5'2, so I understand even a few pounds looks like a lot more on a small frame. I'm looking to lose a total of 115 and have lost 36 so far. Keep up your goals and you will do great!
