    I finally was able to officially join by logging into MFP through Chrome. I am very excited for this group. Having a difficult time since Thanksgiving and need to recommit beginning of the New Year.

    I want to commit to this too. :) Really want to get back to feeling good about myself. This should take me to my goal weight.

    This is great. Being accountable to others is one of the effective means of achieving goals and I'm looking forward to shedding the lbs before Easter.

    Definitely count me in! Been monitoring my calories for a while now but know that I will let that slide over the festive period and this group is exactly what I need to get back on track in the New Year. Let's do this!

    In. went from 275 to 205 from october of last year to april, stalled out and gained 5 back since then. Goal weight being 185 it would be great to be within 5 lbs of that by Easter, and this should help with motivation

    I am in! I don't even know what 20 pounds less looks like on me, I have never weighed less than 175 (I am 5'5"), currently at 189, but can't wait for it!

    169 it is! :# (*)

    Hi Everyone,

    I'd like to join this group. Like Cycletrak1, I am just finishing up with the Christmas Challenge group (which was so much help) and was looking for another group to help maintain my momentum. I've lost 31 lbs with the Christmas Challenge (37 in total) and I have another 50+ to go. This is the best progress I've made in a long time and finally feel like I've found something that I can live with in the long-term.

    I am 58 years old and married with 2 grown children and 3 grandchildren. I retired 1 1/2 years ago and moved across the country (Canada) so I've had lots of changes in my life lately. I am determined to lose weight through methods I can live with for the rest of my life - I am tired of losing and gaining the same 10 lbs over and over - so, no more fad diets for me. I have developed my own reasonable eating plan which I log faithfully on MFP. I also belong to TOPS which helps hold me accountable. For activity, currently I go to Curves 3 days per week (which also helps me be accountable) plus I walk 6 days per week.

    I'm going away for the holidays and will endeavour to not gain during that time (secretly, I'm hoping to lose a pound or two). I'm looking forward to working with this group - I hope we can be a great support for one another. See you in January - I'll check in on January 4 when I return.

    Here are my stats:
    OSW: 230 lbs
    UGW: 140 lbs
    CW: 193 lbs
    Lbs remaining: 53 lbs.

    Thank you for starting this group.
