    Hi everyone, just found this group and thought its a great way to keep on track! I'm using MFP to lose the 2 stone that I've managed to accumulate during a year of injury keeping me off exercise! Although I started keeping a food diary again at the end of December the scales didn't reflect a loss until 1st Feb

    Hi!! I've been on MFP a looong while, but got into quite a funk and got back up to my "usual/highest weight" of 185-ish. My 30th birthday is July 1st and I'm hoping/WILL be losing 30 lbs by then. I've really been wanting a thread or group to just post weekly weigh ins and I stumbled upon this one! It's meant to be haha
    So... SW: 187 (Restarted officially Jan 17th) GW:157 (Will be a 30 lb loss AND officially into the "normal" BMI range) CW: ?? somewhere around 180 but I've had a lot of sodium the last few days so scales up. Looking to lose about 1 lb per week! Maybe average a bit more for the 30 lb goal :)
    Last thing, the icon for the group "If you're tired of starting over, stop giving up" is what really gave me the kick in the butt to click the join button and stay accountable. I've been so good/determined in the 1 month since I've restarted, but the last 2 days I've hit a rough patch of feeling a little down and same old "is it even worth it, why bother" kind of attitude. So the "stop giving up" thing was a real wake up call!

    Hello,

    My name's Britt. I've been trying to lose weight since May of 2014. I got down to 158lbs in November of 2014, but then fell off the wagon once I got into a serious relationship. He didn't need to watch his weight so I stopped. I got back up to 185lbs as of early February 2018. I'm single against and have been working hard to reach my goals.

    Hi, I'm Tash. I gained about 7kg last year following an injury. I've just got back to where I started, but would like some more motivation to lose some more weight. I would like to lose around another 5 to 10kg as I think I've sat a little too long in the overweight category.
    I'll weigh in this week and next...then I go on holiday, so I'll be working hard through the rest of spring to lose this weight :smile:
    Good luck everyone with your goals!

    Hi, I’m TinaMarie and restarting after about 8 months off. I regained almost 40 of the 65lb loss due to a CrossFit injury and self pity. But this time I’ve asked for friends to help! SW 226 GW 145 LW 198 TW 194

    Hi everyone! My name is Hannah and I live in Austin, TX. I am just joining this group because I think a weekly weigh in and smaller group will be helpful.
    Over the course of last year I lost about 25lbs but have gained 10 back between Thanksgving and now. I currently have about 35ish pounds to lose and am very ready to get back into a better mindelset to make it possible.
