    Hi, guys! :):):)

    I'm new here and would like to gain (no pun) some twin friends to inspire each other to lose! I was always skinny, but since last year gained a lot (mostly belly).


    HW: 145lbs
    CW: 144lbs
    GW: 120lbs

    I like: live music, piercings, tattoos, nature, animals, cats, books, reading, psychology, art (drawing, painting, photography), languages, meditation, Hulu/Netflix, weight lifting, elliptical, a little bit of yoga.

    Goal isn't weight so much as PBF. Currently 24% looking to be 20-22%
    I currently run marathons and am considering triathlons in the later spring

    I'm 41 years old, mum of 2 boys. I used to be very skinny until I got pregnant 12 years ago and suddenly found myself with a proper appetite. It was a good thing, so nice to finally enjoy food properly! But fast forward to today and I find that my metabolism has slowed down and I need to watch what I eat. I'm not overweight but I'd like to lose a few kilos.

    My heaviest Oct 2016 - 67kg
    Lightest ca 21 years old - 48-50kg
    Current weight - 63.5kg
    Goal weight - 58-60kg

    I don't really have an exact goal weight as I'm planning on judging this on A: how easy it is for me to get there and B: how I look and feel. As it's not just about kilos, I don't mind being over 60kg if I've managed to increase muscle mass and decrease fat :smile:

    Feel free to add me if you can relate :)

    I'm about to turn 40. Been yo-yo-ing for a few years now. I reduce my calories for months, loose a pant size and then start increasing my portions (not logging into myfitnesspal) and gain some back. It's just really hard to maintain 1200 calories a day. The first month on the diet is the hardest-being hungry all the time. I have an overseas fitbit off-brand that tracks steps. I do have a treadmill that I use occasionally. I'd like some friends to compare notes with.

    Heaviest - 192.5
    Current - 174
    Goal - 140-145

    I do Pure Barre 4-6 days a week in the morning before work.

    I've been chipping away at this fat for 8 years.. I'm ready to finish! O let's do it!! Are you my twin?

    We are nearly twins!

    Age: 33

    CW: 138

    Technically my highest weight was 205 lbs but that was when I was pregnant with twins so I don't think that actually counts.

    Hey looking for a twin!
    I work workout at least 3 times a week, weight training and I do cardio twice a week. I want to start toning up my body and less focus on cardio.

    I'm doing Couch25k, currently on week 5 and trying to add a little strength training as well. I am trying to do clean eating (though I allow alcohol and the occasional cheese--being realistic :smile: ) and use a lot of Fresh20 meal plans.

    I'm 37
    Highest 175 (June 2014)
    Current 162
    Goal 150ish-- Although I'm not focusing so much on losing weight as I am getting toned and being overall healthier. Right now I'm counting my calories and working out 2-3x a week.

    Height: 5'9"
    HW: 160
    CW: 152
    GW: 140 (to start)
    CBF%: 30
    GBF%: 20 (to start)

    I carry most of my extra fat in my lower stomach (food baby anyone?) and thighs. I honestly don't care about the number on the scale, I just want to be able to fit in my pants and not feel like I need a maternity panel by dinner time. I wouldn't be upset if I found my abs under there in the process :) I'm trying to stick to mostly clean eating rather than following any particular "diet". I workout 3-5 times a week (yoga, group-x classes, and lifting mostly). I'm looking for more friends ('twins' or not) to help keep me more accountable. I'm also using dietbet and I find the community there really helpful. . . also having some cash on the line doesn't hurt as motivation either.

    probably oldest to group and late to the "party" so to speak but here goes:
    age: 54
    height: 5'2"
    hw: 173
    cw: 125.4

    started with MFP several years ago and did very well for the first several years.
    These past 2 years+ I have been horrible at not logging and not able to seem to keep my motivation to stick to healthy to eating and drinking A LOT of empty calories & not exercising as was my habit prior to starting with MFP.
    Looking to try to get back to doing better and resume loosing as I had gotten down to 118 prior to falling off my motivation wagon so to speak....
