hi everyone

I am new to MFP and am excited to begin to this journey. I am tired of not feeling good about myself and ready to do something about it. My goal is to lose 30lbs, get active and gain energy. I am an ex personal trainer who at one time was in great shape and was very physically fit but I got away from it and let myself go which caused the 30lb weight gain. I really miss the fit me. I recently moved back to my old home town and its awful to say but I've been avoiding going out because I feel embarrassed when I see someone that probably remembers the fit me. It feels awful. I am looking to meet new friends and share experience with. . Cheers

    Welcome! Good place to start, and with your background, at least you have a headstart on many of us. :smile:
