Looking to meet motivated weightloss friends

Hi Shonda I'm 27 a mother of a daughter so to be 4 yr old. Im a ful-timestudent, but at this time i do not work do to my accident in Nov. 27, 11. I know i can lose the weight i have done it before. After having my daughter i lost the baby weight and extra (170). By my daughters first birthday i was back up to 320 on that day i made up in my mind i had to change to be around to see my daughter grow up. By her 2 birthday i was weighing in at 195. It took hard work and motivation to get there but i achieve that goal. This time it will be tougher due to the accident i broke both femers in my legs and had a complete knee replacement. Some my left leg from knee cap up is all metal. So working out will be a little more difficult this time but im willing to give it my all to drop this weight. I want my final weight to be 165. My current weight is 220. I'm motivated and ready to make this change.

    I need some help and motivation too. Its easier knowing your not alone. You can defiantly add me and so can anyone else who want to help me. I could use support from people who are going through it with me. My husband is not very supportive and in my household they all eat unhealthy.

    Hi Shonda,

    I'm currently around the 218 lbs. We can help keep each other motivated. I've lost 68 lbs so far. Its been hard some days, easy some. But I' doing it 1 day/pound @ a time.

    Since you've been in an accident, water aerobics may be best for you because of your leg and knee injures. Look into @ your local community center, community college or pools in your area. You dont have to know have to swim. And its less stress on the joints. I love it.

    Best of luck to you.

    Hello! Welcome to MFP!

    Add me as a friend and take part in my daily fitness discussions, tips, and commentary on MyFitnessPal!

    MFP is a really great resource to keep you focused and connect you with a wealth of fitness resources and like minded folks.

    1. Log your foods every day - don't skip days, or parts of your day. log everything!
    2. Analyze each day - see where it went good and where it went bad - too much fat? maybe too many carbs? over the calorie limit? Identify and plan how to correct it for tomorrow.
    3. Reach out to the community with questions or advice needs.
    4. Build a network of friends here!
    5. Above all, do not believe everything you read here. There is a lot of great advice, but also some misleading and hype type advice. Part of getting fit is educating yourself in aspects of health and fitness. Make sure any questionable advice is looked at with a scientific eye and look for facts, evidence, and most importantly real world proof.
    6. You are more than a number. Sometimes the scale may not say what you hoped - thats fine. weight loss is not a straight line declination. Its a bumpy line that drops over time. Don't let single day numbers get your focus away from term based results.
    7. Vary your exercises. Your body forms memories and can slow down how it burns fat and builds muscles. Keep it confused! Hit it hard with cardio styles. Build lean muscle to burn even more fat.
    8. and above all - take your photo now! You will want to look back and have a starting BEFORE picture to proudly display along with your series of PRESENT or CURRENT photos during your transformation and continued lifestyle of fitness.

    I welcome you, and anyone else out there to add me as a friend. I have made fitness and health my passion and love the idea of folks joining me in my new lifestyle of being fit, healthy, and most importantly - HAPPY!.

    I'm here to support and motivate!!! I find my own success comes easier when I help and fuel other folks success.

    and remember - most folks care more about the quality of fuel they put in their lawn mowers than the fuel they put in their bodies. Don't be one of those people. Whole foods. Natural foods. Intelligent choices.

    Fit for life,
    Mark M. Reed
