    I'm in. I lost 49 pounds using MFP starting June 1st - gained back 5 at Christmas and stopped tracking. Must get my mojo back - I want to lose 100 pounds total by August. I was stunned & dismayed at how fast my bad habits came back at Christmas. :( Got to get back motivated. Walked 2.5 at the Y today, 20 minutes on the bike and nautilus -but my enthusiasm is just not there. Any advice to get back on track?

    :) I looked at your profile to find out more about you, but there wasn't much info....Do you have a pedometer to keep track of your steps? Do you have a place outdoors to walk? Do you have an mp3 player or a phone for playing music or listening to podcasts or audio books while you walk? Is losing weight at the top of your list of important things to do this year? Don't wait for enthusiasm, just do it and the enthusiasm will follow. I borrow audio books from my library and listen to something really interesting while I walk and they keeps me moving. I give myself a sticker on a calendar for exceeding 10,000 steps in a day and that keeps me moving. Also check back on this thread every day to become part of a community of walkers. Best wishes to you.

    I'll try and keep this goal! I have a husky who loves her walks. So it will be good for her and me as well. I gotta look for my Fitbit charger. It's been a while. Are we tracking here?

    Hi everyone! I'm new to MFP and getting the hang of it.

    I walk a lot, but this year I'm striving to be more consistent & accountable. I'm glad I found this group!

    Fri 1/1/16: 4.2 miles in 1 hr 17 minutes. I'll try to up the pace a bit next time.

    I'm shooting for about 5 miles, 3-4 times per week. I use the mapping function in MapMyWalk to figure out my mileage.

    Cheers, Rosie
