    Hello. I'm back on MFP for the second time. I lost about 45 pounds, stopped tracking, gained it all back. I am so down and finding very little motivation to start back up. I would love to find some diet buddies for motivation. I have been dieting since I was about 12 and have been on the roller coaster since then.

    Hi, I joined MFP awhile back but didn’t ever get into the swing of using it. Came back a second time on Tuesday because my doctor wants me to track calories. I really want to stay motivated this time and looking for some accountability partners! any suggestions for using the site are welcomed as well. Still trying to get used to the apps

    I’ll be your diet partner! I need support also...just joined again a couple days ago!

    Welcome to the MFP Community! This is a discussion we have created topeople in our community, to have a discussion where new folks can meet one another, AND ask questions of existing members.

    We are not going to do an adopt-a-noob discussion this year so we encourage our awesome veterans to hang out in the discussion if you are interested in helping answer questions our noobs need to know.

    Hi Everyone,

    I am not new to MFP but I am hoping that by getting in more involved in the message boards I might find more motivation and not give up so easily. I suffer from depression and am very much an emotional eater. My brother died in November, 2015 and I have gained 75 lbs since that time. I tried Orbera and it was the worst experience of my life. It was a total waste of money. I put down a deposit to get a gastric sleeve in Mexico in 2018 but everyone in my life discouraged me from going. I assist in taking care of my father with dementia and am a single mom to my 16-year-old son with autism. Earlier this month, I lost my job for making too many errors in our process and procedures. You might say that I am under a little bit of stress. LOL I really feel that if I can get on the right path to eating and exercising, my depression and self-esteem will improve. However, I am desperate for support. I hope that by reaching out to others in the MFC, this time my weight loss journey will be a more successfull one. So here we go...

    Good morning! I'm new to MFP. And to the boards but excited to have another way to surround myself with positivity and like minded folks! I have lost 34lbs so far and still a long ways to go but committed to continuing the changes.

    Good morning MFP people. I'm really not new here, I've just been away for awhile and was trying to find my way back. I've found my way back and what will keep me motivated to stay and get back into shape. :)
