I joined MFP at the end of 2015. In a little over a year I lost almost 40 pounds. Then I started a new job, went back to school and most importantly stopped logging my food and stopped moving. I am determined to get some of this extra weight off of myself in a healthy way again. I am now almost 50 years lod and I can definitely feel the difference. Thank you Tammierlewis for starting this challenge.

New to MFP this year (yes, a New Years joiner) but a tired old hand at the diet cycle. Have been absorbing new lessons and mindsets and intend to break the cycle for good. Goal is not how much I lose, but how much I keep off forever! However, would still love to shed 52 this year and finish my 50th year much slimmer than I started...

I would like to join this challenge. I have been at my goal weight a couple of times in the past and know how good it feels. As I get older (57), it is getting harder to do the things I need to do to lose and maintain the lower weight. I am looking forward to reaching my goal again this year. Let's do this!
