    I’d like to be friends. Please add me! I am currently 295 lbs. I lost a lot of weight a few years ago now I let myself go. Trying to rebuild my life.

    I started at 317...have been morbidly obese my entire adult life, nearly 30 years...nearly 70 lbs down and counting.

    At this point it is counting other things than the scale. Increased abilities, easier movement, better marital recreational relations, my feet aren't sore or swollen, fitting the world a little more comfortably, feeling how pleasurable walking the neighborhood actually is, how the new clothes are hanging on me better with every wear, and my old clothes have started falling right off me...

    My bod seems determined to keep me here at + or - 250 lbs for the last few months... but unlike during the rest of my life, I am not giving up or gaining weight (Except for 7 lbs over Christmas season that are gone now), and my shape has changed for the better over this time. I actually crave some exercise now! ME?!?! I have never lost this much before, and I have never been this light as an adult...

    Always happy to support anyone's journey, however they choose to do it, whatever battles they may have..

    I need friends who know what its like to be a big girl! I'm married to a tiny man and he is the kindest most supportive guy. I've gained a ton of weight since we've been married and I started different meds for a heart condition. I am not feeling that great about myself and I really need to make some changes. Feel free to add me and I hope to be able to encourage others too.

    Hi! I started around 329 right before delivering my first child back in September, and now I'm down to the 280s. Feel free to add me! I log in daily and use MFP as a social tool as well as a way to track my meals.

    Hi! I'm Randy Marie from NY.
    I started my journey again for the millionth time 4/23 @ 301lbs. I am already down 11lbs and my goal is 189. Maybe more once I get there.

    Feel free to add me! I’m a big girl just starting over on this journey. I feel I have a long way to go but I’m willing to put in the work. I’d love to have a community of people who just get it.

    Feel free to add me anyone! At my highest I was 323. Started my current journey at 270. 2 months in and 26 pounds down, always looking for more friends for mutual encouragement!
  • quemalosuertequemalosuerte Member Posts: 196 Member Member Posts: 196 Member
    Started at 270 a little over a year ago, but have been as high as the 280s. I lost 30-35 lbs before Covid, then gained back about 15 being away from work and depressed (middle school teacher with anxiety and panic disorders). Trying to restart at 250 and get back in charge of myself. Would love to be friends with any/all of you to help each other through this.

    I’m nearly 250 which is my highest weight. Hoping to get to 200 in the next 4-6 months and then down to 150-160 after that.
    Need all the encouragement I can get. Can’t do any vigorous exercise due to health, so really need motivation with staying on track with what I’m eating!
    Feel free to add me. My food diary is open to friends.

    My highest weight was 147.7 kgs (325 lbs) and I'm down to 129.5 kgs (285 lbs). I've maintained a loss of 16 kgs (35 lbs) for over 6 months and recently started losing weight again. I've been fat all of my adult life. Think the smallest I've been is 100 kgs (220 lbs) and that was like almost 20 years ago! I have to be serious as I have osteoarthritis, gout and polycystic ovarian syndrome. Feel free to add me.

    I was 289 when I started this journey. I think I hit 300 at some point and worked my way down (my scale got broke while moving recently so I have no clue what I've weighed for the last 2 months) I'm down 10 pounds, and striving for 50 by December when I go on vacation with my family and 100 by next June (my birthday). Please feel free to add me

    You can add me. My diary is open but reflects some "best guess" choices for dinner because we live in a community where dinner is delivered to us. I'm here for the long haul this time. Gotta.

    I've weighed in the upper (sometimes WAY upper) 200s for much of my adult life. I'm now pushing 70 and my blood sugar has gone wacky. I also use an upright walker for my exercise walks because of scoliosis, exacerbated by being obese and lack of exercise.

    Being heavy for my entire adult life has done me no favors physically, emotionally, or socially. I don't recommend it. Let's do something about it!
