Hi, I have been looking for a diabetic grp on MFP but have only found inactive ones. Maybe, I should open my own group?! LOL... I'm newly diagnosed with T1D but could use some helpful tips as well.
Hi everyone, send me a friend if you can see this I need friends4
Hi everyone, I named Sebastián and I'm spanish and I can't speak very well the English, but hello i start on the fitness life2
Hello MFP people. It’s my first time back on the app for a very long time.
Having somewhat fallen off the fitness wagon during the pandemic I’m here for a little motivation/inspiration to help climb back on, and hopefully return the favour as well. I’m still in reasonable shape, but could do with shedding a few of those pesky covid kilos that just won’t budge, as well as improve my overall fitness.
I’m also currently at university studying health and nutrition. I am very passionate about healthy eating and love to talk shop, so I f anyone out there is likeminded or wants some advice, please feel free to add me.2
Been away from the app for a while and I’m just starting using it again daily. Add me if you would like!3

hi! my name is alexus and I am starting a new fitness journey3
Hey. New to MFP!! I’m 37 year old female. Hear to have a healthier lifestyle and stay consistent. I’m working towards gaining weight and muscle. I would love to make friends so we can help motivate each other. I’m totally up for the challenge.2
Not really new here, but here with a new attitude!
I'm tired of all the "eat this and lose 50 lbs" or "join this plan and all the fat will melt away". Nope, this time it's eat properly, and move my body everyday, in some mannner.
I have a desk job so I need to try to get in some activity at some point, but it's summer almost and that should help.
I've booked our holiday for Dec and want to be comfortable in my clothes. I don't want to spend all holiday worrying that I need to cover my tymmy or my thighs jiggle. I know that I wont be at my goal by then, but I will be well on my way. I'm thinking 85 pounds will put me in a great zone. I don't want to be skinny but I do want to be lean and strong! And at 60 y/o I want to be in a heatlhy place. So if it takes a year to get there safely and my health is improved (not that its bad but let's not tempt fate) I'm fine with that...as long as I'm losing I can live with a slower pace.
Cheers all and let's get losing!
I'd love to connect with you. I'm looking to more comfortable too... I'm on track to be lean and strong. Let's connect.0
Hey all! I had gastric bypass in 2015 and have regained about 50 lbs. The past few years have been tough but I’m in a good headspace now and ready to regain control. I’d love to make new friends here and be apart of helping motivate others. Feel free to add me 😃0
Hi, I'm Randi and I live in San Antonio. I've been doing WW for awhile and just need a change. I want to have more food freedom without obsessing...which has always been hard for me.
Hoping to connect with others!1
money1610 Posts: 1 MemberHello, I am technically not "new" to mfp but returning! A lot has happened in the last couple years (multiple family deaths including my mom & sister, job loss after 10 yrs due to covid, and my husband became disabled/no longer able to work due to a car accident) and I got distracted with my weight loss efforts but now I am ready to get back on track and reach my goals!!! I still thank God for being awesome and keeping my mental health in tact!!0
Hi everyone, this is Leila. I have just joined.
Let's continue this #losing_weight journey together.1
Hello, my name is Jennie. I really need to nip losing weight in the bud.0
MFP was started in 2016, then off, and went to another paid program. I only choose to use these programs as a support. Having lost 40 pounds I too have yo-yo'd depending on the stressors in life. I realigned my reasons to get healthy: avoid pharmaceuticals, ease the impact on joints, improve walking and balance, feel emotionally better. I started at 189.0 lbs. and now have plateaued at 150 to 155 depending on life stressors: Migrated to MFP for maintenance but I feel like 140 to 145 would suit my 5'3" medium frame better. As a second new start to MFP, I do know "do not give up on yourself." It is difficult to get healthy, given all of the inputs and information we need to process, not to mention influences that side track and de-rail the best intentions: It is a mental game and I plan on winning.0
Had my annual physical today and went over my lab results. The good news is I do not have diabetes! However, I did have warning flags on glucose, cholesterol and sodium chloride. I can control and lower these levels with a healthy diet and more exercise.
I am so glad I joined this group and am seriously making changes to ensure healthier life! BTW I am 71 yrs old.1
Hi I am Tara . I am just getting started now I have to figure out what to eat and stick to it1
Hi I’m Elle. I recently learned to cope with my trauma and now I’m here trying to take better care of my body. Happy to start on this journey with everyone!!0
