    Hey, I'm Val. 30 years old currently residing in Malta. I've been heavy all my life but I really want to try and live healthy since I'm not getting any younger. I'm 50 pounds above my recommended weight, but hopefully I will manage to lose the extra weight within the year. If anyone wants to connect please feel free to reach out.

    Hi everyone! I’m Anna and I currently live in Reykjavik, Iceland. I’m 25, working full time as a waiter in a fancy restaurant and bar. I’m struggling to commit to healthy lifestyle mostly because of my crazy schedule (12+ hour shifts since I’m a manager). But I’m trying my best and just recently got back into gym, trying to change my eating habits as well.
    My goal isn’t really weight-based. I’d like to ultimately fit into US size 6-8 (UK 10-12) since right now I’m floating between US 14-16 (UK 18-20). Would love to have some friends here that I could share this journey with.

    Hello :) I'm 25 and on week 2 of using MFP and generally trying to lose weight and live healthier, not always easy as I have a couple of chronic illnesses that keep kicking my butt but I'm determined this time. 58lb to my goal weight (although I'm only weighing myself every 4-6 weeks or so, next weigh in is April 1st) :)

    Hello everyone! I am 27, and I used myfitnesspal a few years back, with some success. Due to some personal issues I stopped, and after a successful year on Weight Watchers (I lost 20 pounds!), I couldn't afford the $60 a month fee anymore, and decided to return back to myfitnesspal! I am excited to meet new people and get back on the road to success! I have 96 pounds to lose, and I am determined to do it! :)

    Hey! I'm 23 and I graduated last summer and started my first Proper Job. I gained quite a bit of weight during my uni years and I would very much like to lose it again. I've lost around a stone since graduation and I'm back on here to lose the rest :# I have been on and off MFP a number of times but hopefully with some supportive friends I'll be able to stick it out this time! Feel free to add me :)

    Hi! I'm 23, working in an academic library and also in a masters program! I've just started to get serious about losing weight, I'm going to be a bridesmaid in a few months and definitely do not want to stand in front of everyone the way I'm looking right now. I'd love some friends for mutual support in the weight loss journey :)

    Hi everyone!

    I am 24 and from the UK. As with some of you I have put on weight since working full time and now have about 35 pounds to lose. I moved out from my family at the start of last year which has helped a lot, I love have more control of what I eat. Now I am working on exercising consistenly as I am a master of excuses!

    Hi New here. 34 years old. Have been on sick benefits for a few months now due to an injury. I’ve gained a little winter weight since off. Eating bad food and not getting out enough is a bad combo. Got the app to be more mindful of what I consume.

    I am really impressed with the fact that you can scan the products barcode and the info with automatically populate. Technology

    Hey everyone!

    I'm a 32 year old veteran undergraduate student about to graduate. I'm minoring in dance, because I love it, and for my last semester of school I'm taking a Hip-Hop class that's killer!

    Trying to build up my full body strength to be able to do headstands, handstands, one handed or no handed cartwheels, and eventually B-girl moves. Right now I don't have the strength for it, it's been rough on my joints and progress has been tough, but I am working on it.

    I'm new to the MFP community, but would love some friends to connect with and encourage each other. This week I seem to be fighting a bug so it may take me out of the action for a few days, but hopefully I'll beat it quickly and be back on track soon.

    Stay strong everyone!
