    Hey there! My name is Sarah I'm 5'2" weighing in at roughly 91lbs. I'm looking to gain, my goal is 110lbs but I have no idea where to start on this journey. So far I've put on ~5lbs just from drinking milkshakes with protein powder semi regularly.

    Hello Sarah, I would suggest seeing a nutritionist. They can workout a plan to ensure you have a healthy path to weight gaining.

    Good luck with your fitness goals.

    Hey y'all, so I've been here before. I'm the heaviest I've been. I am suffering from major depression and anxiety and I binged a ton. I'm working to break that cycle. I've also been diagnosed with PCOS, so I'm trying to ease into Keto. Add me so we can keep in touch!

    I’m new. I’m preparing for weight loss surgery. My doctor wants me to lose 10 to 30 pounds before I get my date. So far doing ok. Could definitely use some motivation and support.

    I was away from MFP for a while but I'm back now.

    I remember before I went away that when I clicked on "my meals" I would get an alphabetized listing of my meals. Now I just get a listing, unalphabetized. Has an alphabetized listing been done away with or else what am I doing wrong?

    Hey guys, my name is Monica, my friends call me Mon. I’m 24 years old.
    I have always struggled with my weight, while I was younger I always thought that was overweight and I was very uncomfortable in my own body. It’s funny how you can convince yourself to feel so negatively when it comes to your own body, it’s so easy to do, so I got into the whole gym thing, not really to lose weight but to change my mindset and it was great!

    Until a year ago....

    One year ago I was struggling with multiple issues through out my body, exteam tiredness, joint pain in my whole body, poor circulation, pins and needles, migraines, fluid in my legs, my kidneys weren’t filtering properly, multiple blood clots blocking blood flow through out my whole right leg, which resulted in ending up in emergency with a Pulmonary Embolism, to be told I have a blood syndrome, Factor IV (clotting factor) and multiple auto-immune positives, yet to be diagnosed. All these issues went on for months and months without any help, I was in and out of the Emergency/doctors/specialist with no answers, until the PE happened.
    I am now on warfarin for the rest of my life, with these issues that have left my body riddled with pain.
    I’ve gained weight from not being able to move & exercise, mentally I’m probably at my worst in terms of body positivity and head space, but I am so bloody keen to bounce back from this and be happy and feel good again !
    Needing all the support I can get !

    Hope everyone is having a lovely day, speak soon xx

    Hello there,
    I used to be 45 K and now I am 75 :'(
    Although I dont look Fat-Fat, I currently have a 32% fat.
    My goal is to get to 55 K but with a better body composition.
    That's how I discovered MFP. I'd love to get tips and make new friends :)

    Hi everyone. I am looking for like-minded people for motivation and encouragement! In January of 2017 I weighed 311, I lost 107 lbs in around 18 months, but now I have gained almost half of that back because I let life get in the way. I want to steadily get back to where I was so I can get to my goal weight and be as healthy as I can be. I would love to connect with people who are also looking to lose a large amount of weight, 75-100 lbs or more even. Any advice or guidance would be greatly appreciated as I am also just getting back into running again!

    Hello all, my name is Amy. I'm 25 years old, 5'2", and I currently weigh about 260 lbs. While I don't have (or want) a goal weight, I'm gunning for 20% body fat. I have been obese for as long as I can remember. I finally decided to grow up and look at myself holistically, acknowledging that I've treated myself like garbage. I'm not here to try getting healthy. I'm here to become a queen. A woman who meets her needs (physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally), has standards, enforces boundries, continuously grows, and, above all else, has true self respect. This is do or die for me, because failure means killing the queen inside.

    Hi everyone!

    My name is Chelsea and I'm 21 and 5'9".
    I'm on the app because this summer I lived in a rainforest and lost 45 pounds from my original 234lbs. However, now back in the US it is hard to keep the weight off and lose more to get to a 20% body fat instead. According to my doctor, I need to lose another 40lbs to be at the goal, but I'll focus on building muscle as I lose fat (so I don't want to base my life on a scale number). I'm mainly working by taking body measurements to track muscle growth.

    Hoping to make some friends here!

    Hi all I'm 27 5'4 305lbs woman! I am looking to lose at least 150lbs all while becoming healthy and building muscle! This isn't my first rodeo and I often don't make it very far. I really want to do it this time. I have been obese my entire life! I don't know what it's like to be thin nor look it! I want to be healthy I've become a more positive person and I'm noticing a change on the inside. I am ready for my change to show outwardly as well. I am unsure how to add people but I am looking for lots of motivation and fun people to go through this journey with so add me! Good luck to everyone in their journeys I am rooting for all of you! #KeepGoing
