Hi, my names Ashley and I am a 37 year old mother of 2. I have RA, and a few other health conditions. I am starting , well restarting , my journey today to lose 170lbs. I am looking for those who have a lot of weight to lose as well, or are simply struggling and looking for accountability buddies or like minds to talk to along the journey. I am a recovering Compulsive over eater, and do my best day to day to make positive changes and be kind to myself as I am to others. Sometimes, that is hard to do. We often don’t give ourselves the compassion and understanding we give others, in the same situations. Anyway, look forward to meeting new people and traveling along this new path. Have a blessed day everyone.

    I’ve also got a lot of progress I need to make towards my goal. I’d be happy to be a support buddy if you are interested! Either way you got this. One day at a time!

    I would like to lose 150 to 160.. I have tried and failed so many times. I am 45 years old, mom of two that are young adults and now I'm focusing on me. Motivation is hard, my husband can cut back on calories and lose 10 lbs in a blink of an eye, I cant lose 10 lbs in 2 months.. very good listener..would love to be a part of this group.

    Hi, Ashley! Congratulations to you for starting this journey! That is where the magic begins. 😊💜
    My ultimate goal is to lose 155 pounds. I’m down 80, so just over halfway. I’ve come so far and yet still have a ways to go, and I know this second half will be slower 😜

    Same and same! I need to lose 140lbs (holy *kitten*, typing that is a reality check), and I actually hopped on to look for a virtual workout buddy. I'd like to message back and forth and get to know someone as we're working on this goal together. If that sounds good to anyone here, add & msg me!

    Is anyone interested in joining an MFP group where we can chat and support each other?
  • conniewilkins56conniewilkins56 Member Posts: 2,161 Member Member Posts: 2,161 Member
    I started MFP 2 years ago and I have lost 109 lbs….I still have some to go….I will be 70…. If you are serious about losing, have an open, diary and don’t mind constructive kind criticism, I will be your friend!….if I can lose weight, anyone can!….the Larger Loser group for those that need to lose more than 70 lbs is a great group of supportive and motivated people….anyone is welcome to join!… games or challenges….plain talk and motivation!

    Totally @Steve25k, and silly question, can we just keep this thread alive as a group?
    What's one thing you all did today to take care of your body?
    I ate less junk today, made a healthy lunch for my family & took a long hot walk. 🔥👟 More than 1 thing, but today is a good day 😊
