Hi All, Just joined the group. Last couple years have been challenging and need to drop some weight. I would love to lose 50 pounds and regain some energy. I am tired all the time and haven't been exercising due largely to my work schedule. Just trying to get back on a healthy track and feel good about myself.

Hi there! I'm Calleaghn (but Rev is fine) and I've been on myfitnesspal off and on for a long time.
I just finished a year of Noom and loved it! Ready to transition out of there and into a more ongoing support system for continued fitness and weight loss. And just general lifeyness.
I'm new to this group. Live just South of Seattle, a grad student, musician, avid reader, scifi fan and gamer. Dancing is my favorite work out, but I also do HIIT and weights, and whatever else catches my fancy. I love to skate and am currently looking for some local folx to do it with. Though I will definitely go by myself and make new friends there if that's how it goes down. lol
I'm 58 and still recovering from a long term chronic illness. Just diagnosed with COPD last year and been having some joint issues for awhile. I keep modifying movement to work for me where ever I am. When I don't, things just get worse. Last two years were rough, starting before COVID, and this past year I've been coming out of it finally. I've lost 40 pounds and want to drop another 30, at least.
The thing I most proud of from the past year is that I've gotten hooked on exercise in a way that's made everything better- my mood, my energy, my body, my joy level. Even when I'm hurting and fatigued, I find some way to move joyfully, even the littlest bit, and it feeds my everything.
Thanks for being here! I hope to get to know some of you as the days roll on...

I’m back on MFP after a 6 month break. I topped out at my highest weight ever in December and decided to put an end to that trend! We started out the year doing some hikes and trail walking - but sometimes the weather doesn’t fully cooperate. Been hitting the treadmill 5 days a week - and I’ve been really enjoying it!
I only have a few active friends left here on MFP - and would love to have a few more! I’m 57 - a long-time punk/garage musician (I took up banjolele as a COVID project), and currently play in a new old-timey jazz, punk, blues duo with my husband for fun.
Hope y’all are having a great weekend!

Longtime MFP user. I took a break for a couple of years, tried WW and Noom, now I'm back and everything is different. Im looking to find active groups for motivation and fun.

Been using MFP for a while with times of “unfaithfulness”. Yo-yoing weight, now at 201–just finished our first cruise almost a month ago. Wanting to get more serious about health before it’s too late. Will be 70 in October. Just upgraded to Premium a couple days ago. Have a goal of 160 lbs (based on my height). Have been as low as 179 a few years ago. Joining this group for help. Will try checking in DAILY. Already saw some interesting posts!

I'm 50+ and weigh around 250 lbs; otherwise healthy and physically active with love of the outdoors; exploring the OMAD lifestyle with a Low Carb component to help truly kick in the weight loss. Besides, much of the research I've explored indicates it is a good lifestyle choice to make when in the 50+ category and physically active.
Seeking like-minded MFP "Friend's" to help encourage; educate; and support each other along our respective journeys
