    I’m 15lbs down from spring break (mid march) but still have 115-120 to go. I’d join up with you for this journey.

    I just started today but I used to use MFP years ago. Good luck to you.

    Great group for those with a lot to lose, very active threads and members at various stages of their weight loss/maintenance.

    Hi! I just wanted to drop in to say you can totally do this, no matter how far you have to go. A year and a half ago I thought I had 95 pounds to lose. It was really more like 115 pounds. Anyway at this point I have about 20 pounds to lose. I thought I couldn't do it because I'd always failed before. I looked up to people who had lost more than fifty pounds, with big starry anime-style eyes like they were in a totally different orbit.

    It took consistency, planning, learning about myself and my own pitfalls, and teaching myself portion control. A few new healthy habits. Lots of patience. So no matter how hard it gets, never give up, and take every opportunity to find non-food ways to enjoy your journey!

    One last word - after you have lost a comparatively small amount of weight you will already begin to feel better. Enjoy this. Take a moment to celebrate it and let it spur you on to greater success.

    All the best to you!

    I have about 125 pound that I’d like to erase from the scale. I try to think of it as ‘just one pound’ and it’s easier to Digest. 125 just sound so far away, but one pound stacked on one pound, I can do that.

    I do my VERY best just for today and then I put put that day away and it becomes yesterday. Don’t worry about yesterday, we are on to today. ❤️⭐️

    Hi everyone! I have right at 170lbs to lose. I'd love to add some others who are in a similar boat. I'm very transparent about my eating and my diary is always open. I also love to speak with and encourage others.

    Hello I’m in the process of losing 100 pounds. So far have lost 18 pounds. Me and my son are on this journey together. Non scale victories so far : he needs a new belt and he says I don’t snore as loud lol 😂 I would love to be in a group of others with 100+ to lose. We can do it! 💪🏽❤️🙌🏽

    I'm right there with you. I haven't used MFP before but I have gained and lost and gained it all back. Currently have at least 125 to lose. I'm sure my dr would like it to be more. Definitely looking for support along the journey.

    Good morning, and I have 100 pounds and I will still be over weight, but better than now. I need a walking buddy, or an gym buddy, or just someone to ask me how I did yesterday. You would think with two dogs to walk, an a gym membership , and a trainer I would be rocking this, but I am a stress eater. I also eat out of boredom (really dumb I know), but it is what it is. I love to visit and drink my black coffee, (that's how I de-stress) but that has gone by the way. I love to meet people and visit, even if it means driving a ways. Anyway, hello there.

    Hello!

    I started earlier this spring with 130# to lose. :#
    Now with 36# gone, I'm just under 100# to go.
    Which is where I started from last time I was on MFP, about 5 years ago, and only got halfway there before things fell apart....
    So yeah, I'm in. Hopefully to make it stick this time. :p
