    Hi everyone! Trying my best to lose weight this year. I have reached an all time high and all in the belly. I am 53 and I feel like my weight is really starting to affect the weigh I feel, and its not great. No energy, out of breath, can't fit into my clothes and an overall feeling of BLAHHH.

    Heyyyy! I'm a newbie to MFP. I'm not overweight, but I'm at risk of being so. This site was recommended to me via Google. Hopefully, I'll be able to lose a few pounds and be able to maintain it with a bit of guidance :)

    I'm not new to MFP but I'm new as far as trying again...

    I'm more than 100lbs overweight and with the current world it has only been getting more and more stressful to be in this body and keep having thoughts that if, God forbid, I came down with this Corona virus I'd be a goner for sure. I'm desperately trying to change my habits and thought patters so I can move forward and be a happier me.

    I have been overweight all of my life and have gotten on the weight loss train and fallen off more times than I can count. I want and need this time to be different so I'm hoping the community of people all working together towards a common goal might help me. Here's to the future I've wanted for as long as I can remember.

    Hello all!! I'm excited to be on this journey. I need to lose about 70 lbs. I didn't put it on overnight so I'm not expecting it to come off overnight either. I'm taking this journey day by day.

    Hi! New account, old member. I’ve been eating an average of 2077 cals since Jan 1st and maintaining. Looks like I figured out my TDEE and now time to start eating less. Wish me luck, I’ll starve 😂

    Hello. I'm turning 34 next month and need to really get on track to lose weight. I'm overweight at 4'11" and my doctor keeps telling me to go on Weight Watchers. I know I need to lose the weight, I'm just lazy about it but decided today it's about time I do so to help my back and joints (they pop when I walk and I get out of breath easily). I can't walk more than maybe a mile without getting pale and clammy/out of breath plus I've no physical upper body strength (can only lift maybe up to 15 lbs on my own)-but my family contributes that to my premature birth as I had to go through physical therapy just to get me to walk and hold my head up. Unfortunately, where I live, I don't drive and we have no sidewalks or street lights here with which to safely walk on these back roads and there are not sidewalks everywhere in town...I'm out of breath just walking up and down the hill leading to my apartment. :( I guess I just hope to get healthy and take the pressure off my back so I can feel better about myself, physically and mentally. I suffer depression, PTSD and Anxiety which doesn't help matters plus a lot of stress.

    Hi everyone.
    Longtime MFP user, first time visitor to the community. I've been trying to gain muscle definition and lose inches all my adult life. I guess I have the kind of body that gains weight even I take a deep breath. I've always been a runner but took up weight training a couple of months back. I definitely see the results but not as fast as I'd hope. I think I have my exercise regime well settled but I generally am unable to maximize my protein intake. Micronutrient management is a big tussle. Hitting 31 soon with a 3 year old.. starting out in the community for support with my diet and extending it if anyone needs it. : )
