Almost 50 need to lose over 100 lbs; lets be friends!!

I would love to have more friends here on MFP. I am very active and am on here everyday multiple times per day! So anyone who wants a friend who's active please add me. I am very good at encouraging and motivating others (just not so much when it comes to doing that for myself - but I'm working on it).

Would love to have others that's stats are similar to mine; whether that's where you are now or where you started at. It's always encouraging and inspiring to see others who were as big as me but have lost the weight because I can look and say "See if you keep going you could look like this!".

And also if anyone would like to exchange numbers and actually text for encouragement and accountability I would be up for that too. (BUT ONLY for weight loss related encouragment - I am happily married so not looking to text anyone on a personal level like that, just wanted to make that clear!)

Thanks and God Bless!
Anna

    I'm 70 and need to lose 100+. My diary is open. Feel free to add me. You might also check out a thread in Motivation & Support called JUST FOR TODAY. It's a way of focusing on your weight loss and personal tasks for the day, and tracking whether or not you were successful completing them. Also a place to comment on other posts or events happening in your life.

    I am not 50 but my goal was to lose 100 pounds. I am 80 pounds down! woo-hoo! Feel free to question me about any challenges that you might face. I know I faced plenty. I would be happy to help. Maybe I can pick up some inspiration from you guys for dropping the last 20 pounds which are becoming very stubborn. Happy winning by losing everyone!

    Hellllllooo I sent you a friend request today. I’m your height and I started at the same weight as you...297.4 lbs this past May. I’ve used MFP for years and it does work! I don’t know if my goals is to drop 100 lbs but I set mini goals and I’ll know when the number is right based on how I feel. When I was 175 I wasn’t comfortable. Hopefully we can motivate each each other!

    Please add me as a friend. We have about the same highest weight. I've lost 63 pounds so far, but need to lose about 100 more (I'm 5'4", so shorter than you).

    I have hovered around the same 3 pounds for about 3 weeks. And I know it’s because I have little slips here and there. I can’t seem to have the staying power to keep going. Any tips or tricks to get my motivation back?

    For me, the trick has been to stop thinking about the way I'm eating as a means to an end and just taking it as "the way I eat now." That way, it doesn't matter to me as much what the scale is doing or not doing. I won't lie: it does niggle at me a bit, but not as much as if I were constantly feeling cheated that there wasn't a direct cause/effect relationship between my efforts and the "pay off" of weight loss progress.

    Just saw this thread, I’m in after January 2, 2019. I figure I’ll wait until after the holidays because I’m the only person in the family that cooks. I need a lot of help and support. I’m not sure how to add friends on here so teach me. Also, physical on Monday, can’t wait for those results.
