Hello!

My name is Stephanie and I've been here off and on for a long time. I've been dedicated to MFP for almost a year (Jan 13th) and I've loved every moment. I've lost 30 pounds but gained so much more in the process. I've learned what works for me through trial and error. I've learned what I like to do and what doesn't tickle my fancy. I've gained a huge support system here and these friends keep me accountable and excited to be on this journey every day.

I'm looking to add more friends to my friend list and want to reach out to those new people that are just starting out. I firmly believe that having a good support system can make all the difference on your fitness journey. Feel free to send me a friend request or post on this forum. I may not know all the answers but I'm willing to help in any way I can and offer support.

Some info about me:
23 years old female 5'7
150lbs pounds - started at 180 (goal is 145lbs ish)
25% body fat (goal is 22%)
If I had to categorize my eating I would say its IIFYM but I don't preach it or push it
I strength train using the Stronglifts 5x5 program, I walk during my work breaks/lunches and use my fitbit flex to track it. I occasionally run and hike.

Anyway, Happy New Year!

    Feel free to add me. I've been doing MFP for a year or so but haven't been logging for a few months. I'm on an 8 day logging streak though! Could use the support.

    Hey there!! Feel free to add me. I kinda fell off the weight loss wagon last year because of issues, but I am starting to get back on track. Congrats on the weight loss!

    How long have you been doing Stronglifts? Have you thought of transitioning to a muscle group split with hypertrophy as the goal?

    Hello! Added. Thank you! :)

    I'm still a noob when it comes to real strength training. I was messing around with bodyweight and machine "weight training" for about 6 months but did not see any progress. I started Stronglifts about 2 months ago and I'm still seeing gains from it. I'm not currently interested in transitioning to muscle group splits at this time due to time restraints and I'm really loving the stronglifts moves. Maybe in the future.

    Hi there! I am in my twenties, looking to loose about 20 pounds slowly but steadily so that I might keep it off permanently.

    Feel free to add me! =)

    Being Indian, I usually love to eat Indian food. Any recommendations on Indian food would be a big help. Just joined yesterday.

    Welcome to mfp. Unfortunately I don't eat Indian food so I won't be much help.
