    My name is Liz, I'm a 22 year old veterinary assistant in Northern California, I want to lose 100 lbs by January 2015. I am a mother to 4 dogs and one cat - all rescues. I am also the mother to one little girl, named Kylee who got her wings during my 4th month of pregnancy. I am the aunt of one beautiful step-niece from my younger sister, I am expecting my first biological niece in May from another sister and my twin brother and sister-in-law are expecting their first baby in July. I am involved with a man I have known since I was 13. And I'm just hoping to become a healthier person for myself and my growing family, that I hope to add to some day.

    Those are beautiful flowers. Don't put too much pressure on yourself. He will be elated to see you again irregardless of whatever weight you may be at. I'm sure he could care less the number on your scale. Do this for you. :flowerforyou:

    Hi everyone!

    I'm Emma and I'm 21 years old, turning 22 this Saturday :) I have never really been overweight but lately I have moved in with my boyfriend, having too much fun and develoepd some pretty crappy eating habits.
    I am not sure what my starting weight is at the moment as I left my scales behind when I moved in - whoopsies! But I do know that especially after Christmas etc that it would be a significant gain because all my clothes aren't fitting and I've started getting really upset about it :(
    I am buying a new scale today and have told my boyfriend I am going to really try to lose weight and he is being supportive. I will post my starting weight in the "Starting Weight" forum post when I weigh in... probably tomorrow OR maybe I will wait until after my birthday, regardless, its great to meet you all and I wish you all the very best of luck! Lets do this!
    Em xx

  • My name is Janae Valenta :) I need to loose 40 pounds for the guard and was told this app would help a lot and found myself here! :)
  • I'm Eve. I am 5'4" and 217 lbs. this time last year I joint mfp then fell off the band wagon when I got depressed. Today, I stepped on a scale and realized how much I've let myself go! I really would like to lose 100 lbs at the most... But for this year I'd like to lose 50. That would put me at 167. My main motivation is really so I can be hot for my dude ;) Also, I don't want to look bad in my work uniform as well as in clothes in general. I hope to find people who I can motivate and who can motivate me CONTINUOUSLY!!!! Add me if you'd like :) I'm on team 2:)
  • Hi I'm Christina from Alberta, Canada a married mother of four soon to be an empty nest home. I want to make this year about getting healthy and fit so I can begin to travel without stress and keep up with my husband doing the things we want to do for FUN! My only daughter moved to California in September too so I want to be able to fly down there by myself without dying of anxiety. I already feel better after a week and a half of beginning to exercise and healthier eating and want to continue that and see some big changes in my body and health by the end of the year!

    I'm Alex in California. I've got over 100 pounds to lose, so i really need to lose weight for my health. I think this competition will be good motivation for me, and keep me accountable. I've been over weight since age 8, was morbidly obese by the time i got to high school. When I was 19 I lost all the weight through eating disorder and drugs and got to my goal weight. By 25 after going through treatment, I was back up to 350. I'm 32 now, and ready to lose the weight the healthy way this time.

    Some really interesting people here!

    Hey everyone, my name is Darrel. I'm 25 and recently graduated from Eastern Washington University with a bachelors degree in biology. I come from the beautiful evergreen state of Washington and it's nice to see one other member comes from this rocking place with me! :)

    I've been overweight since I was 10. I haven't had a relationship in over two years and I'd like to be sexy for at least a short duration of my youth. I just had surgery in September and I want to respect that privilege by getting my body into great shape.

    Three years ago I was 254 pounds, two years ago 245 pounds, and now I'm at 207.

    I've already lost 3 pounds in 6 days. I'm currently 195 at 5'1". How do I add my ticker on here? My goal is to lose 68 pounds. I have a lot of medical problems. But I am determined to lose this weight and keep it off. With MFP I am able to track better and I am exercising while watching how much and what I eat. I'm 48 with 5 grandkids and I can't keep up with them anymore. This is not just a diet for me..... It's a total change of eating habits for the rest of my life. :flowerforyou:

    Hi my name is Melissa. I'm 23, I'm be 24 in a couple of weeks. I've been over weight since I was in grade 6 after a traumatic verbal bully related incident left me with no confidence or self worth. It wasn't until a few years ago when I met my fiance that I finally started to heal from it.

    I'm ready to become the person I was meant to be! I am currently about 80 lbs overweight. But technically I am in the obese category. I prefer just saying overweight seem less horrible. I'm in another group that is a weight loss support group that supports you whether you gain or lose. Which I love and I need but also I have a very competitive nature and so I really like the idea of this group and being competitive (in a good positive way).

    Sounds fun to me!
