Looking for friends—especially school staff!

Hi, all—
I’d like to have a few more friends to follow along with via my newsfeed!

Right now, I’m slowing losing and ideally will be losing about 70 pounds more, but I really struggle with the changes in schedule I have as a teacher—summers are more free, and I have to look at eating differently than I do during the school year, when there’s no time for anything :) If you’re living through the same kind of “struggle,” you know what I mean!

I’ll follow you if you want to reply here!

    Same struggle here! I do great with exercising in the summer, but fall off track and gain weight during the school year.

    Same struggle here! The spring semester is the worst for finding time to eat/exercise as i should! I'm using the summer to get back on track.

    Not a teacher - would love to follow you! And - I am looking for the same and finding it hard to find people to respond to my request to connect. I like connecting with people who have had success and who struggle - and I mean that to be inclusive. This *is* a struggle, no matter how much weight I lose, no matter how much time goes by, it's never easy. I'm embracing that it's difficult and learning from times when I slip up. I lost big years ago and kept most of it off....but I continually go back and forth within a 50 pound range. So anyway, approaching my 50 day streak for my second MFP adventure and my (100th) start on the Freakin' Fifty.

    Any takers? I'm not trying to just build numbers, I just need more support - and I want to give support to more people. =>

    Have a great Saturday!

    Hi, I work at a high school and have the same work schedule with summers off. I'm starting to track again and would love to support you in your goals as I work on mine!

    I'm 5'3" and 169 lbs. my goal is to end up around the 125 mark so I've got 45 to go!

    I am the district nurse for a local preK-12th grade school. I definitely struggle with the schedule change, too! Would love to connect!

    I’m a teacher and have all the same difficulties with schedules, not to mention special events at school (food everywhere in December and May). I’d love to have some teachers in my support circle. Feel free to add me!
