    Just started again back on May 11th after a few years away (and needed to, ha ha)... have lost almost 13 pounds over 8 weeks (1.57lb/week) - but have to admit while I seem to be winning the calorie battle, I have almost always lost the sugar & sodium ones! LOL... so hard to win all 3 at the same time as a single guy who doesn't cook (and thus relies too much on processed / packaged foods).

    Good luck to everyone and hope you are doing well!

    Hello everyone! New to MFP. I’m here to stay motivated and help keep track of healthy eating, exercise and water intake. I’m a mom of a 4 1/2 year old and although I’ve been lucky to maintain the same weight at 33 years old as I was in high school, I really want to add muscle to my body and get stronger. I have an ectomorphic body type and high metabolism. Before my daughter was born I worked out a lot in my home and my routines were often cardio and stretching. As I research the type of body I want I’m realizing I should really be weight lifting. I’m planning on joining LA fitness sometime in the next week since I do not own weights and bars. I’m a very friendly, outgoing person and open to converse with others with similar struggles and anyone who has good advice in what and how I should be doing things. Nice meeting you all and wishing everyone good luck in reaching their goals. :)

    Hello I am not new to site but took time off well a couple of years off. I am back and my goal is to be fit and healthy but the time I am 55. So almost two years. I would love to talk to people who have alot of weight to lose and wish to lose it in a healthy manner. I belonged to a weight loss group prior to this and the focus was on filling your body with processed foods low calorie foods. I want to try something different this time.

    Hi! I am new here and just getting started. I lost 50 lbs about 5 years ago and in the last year or so, have put back on about 20 lbs. I am looking to get back on track and be more accountable. When I lost all my weight I discovered running.....and I love it. I am not fast by any means and run using the Galloway method which has been awesome. I have done 5k, 10k, 15k, and half marathon distances. I tried the biggie...a full marathon, but only made it to mile 22. I am really hoping that losing this 20 lbs can get me in better running shape again. More than even that though....I don't want to ever get back to where I was before. 20 lbs is a wake up call. Time to be more more excuses!

    Hello! I'm not new to MFP but have been logging sporadically for a few years now. I have 50 pounds to lose and a seemingly impossible task of getting my blood sugars within normal range. I'm looking for friends, specifically women over the age of 50. I look forward to getting more involved in the MFP community.

    Hello! I'm a long time lurker. I've been on this weight loss journey for a while. I started about 2.5 years ago and lost around 30 lbs in a few months through a pretty strict diet similar to keto (but even more restrictive). Surprise, surprise, it wasn't sustainable. I eased up on the diet but maintained most of that loss for the better part of 2 years and started up with a more relaxed plan a couple of months ago. I saw a nutritionist for about a month who gave me meal plans, which were nice, but decided to do it on my own. I've been using MFP for about 1.5 months now and have lost about 8 lbs. I have about 60 lbs more to go. Looking forward to doing that here :)

    Hi y'all. I am new to MFP. I have been on a weight loss journey off and on for the past 26 years. (after my oldest daughter was born). I was pretty successful with Atkins back in the day. About 4 years ago I lost about 50 lbs due to diet and stress, lol. Now that my life has calmed down a bit, the pounds came back with friends. I would love to make friends with people who are also on this journey to be a better healthier them. Feel free to add me as a friend or message me. I am not sure if I am doing Keto or Low carb. I haven't really decided which yet. I started just doing low carb (30 total carbs) a day for now. Any suggestions or inspirational messages would be appreciated. Happy Monday MFP peeps.
