    Hi! I’d like to be friends. 🙂 I also had weight loss surgery (gastric sleeve) and lost 190. I kept it off for 3 years by eating right and exercising. Then I got a concussion and gained quite a bit due to lack of impulse control with food for 3 years. Uffda! I’ve been trying to do WW but I think counting calories might be a better choice right now. On a positive note, I’ve kept off 109 pounds.

    "Uffda"! I knew you had to be from Minnesota! I was just going to ask you and then I looked at your profile name closer. Love it! From Minnesota also❤❤

    Doubtful. Anyone else in their late 40s who lost their spouse unexpectedly earlier this year and trying to find any way forward? Sorry to be debbie downer, but I need friends that don't exist.

    Guess I'll go hiking. It's all that seems to keep me sane.

    Hoping to find some people in similar shoes to follow! I'd like to have some friends in here.

    A little about me

    I’m 32, married, homeschooling mother of three, aged between middle school and preschool.

    Height: 5’8.5"
    SW: 184lbs (1/15/2021)
    CW: 146lbs (Today)
    UGW: 120lbs (Maybe)

    I don't have a lot of free time to myself so my weight loss journey has been based primarily on Calories in vs. Calories out, my trusty Samsung Gear watch (which does not inflate calories burned like other brands), food choice, eliminating night eating, and aiming for 10k steps per day.

    I know it's not the same, but I lost my dad a couple of years back on Christmas Day and the pain of that led me to gain to my high weight via emotional eating. He was too young. I was too young to not have a dad (not even 30 yet.) I couldn't cope. It took me 2 years to turn my habits around. I've now lost the weight but the pain is still there. I just wanted to extend my understanding of loss, even if it's not the same as your story. I think having a community like this (not facebook) where you can really just say what it is that is truly on your mind, can really help.

    Hello everyone! I would love to have some friends on here. I'm 41 and a mom of four boys who are 15, 11,8, and 4. I lost 60 pounds when I was pregnant with my youngest due to morning sickness constantly. I've gained 30 of that back. 15 of those pounds have been since March when I quit smoking! We're talking about going on a cruise next year and I would love to be closer to my UGW.

    Good morning/day to all. I'm Cari. Embarking on a new mission to take my life and live it instead of watching it pass me by. I was here years ago, quit and joined WW. Had a good run on there, but just can't focus on food all the time and all that seems to go with WW. Calories seem like a better decision for me.

    I'd love to make new friends and give and receive support.

    Seems to be a running theme of people coming back to MFP. I'l throw myself into that group as well. When I first started MFP I weighed 272 pounds, and got all the way down to 190. An accident and a knee surgery later and I got back up to 224. I have been back a little while so am working it off, but please feel free to add me if you like. Please include a message (even if it's just the word 'Anything') so I know it's not a bot.

    Currently 50, I identify as a nerd with geek-like tendencies.
