    hello. My name is Ally, I am 33 and I am struggling with my weight for over 15 years. I tried everything out there but unfortunately, I am my worst enemy and always seem to fail due the lack of self esteem. I can move mountains for the loved ones but when it comes to me, I can't do anything for myself... that's why I need support, I need someone who will guide me and listen to me. I can offer support as well. I am a good listener and always happy to make new friends. Thank you

    I would really like to have a mentor. I am trying really hard, and I am so confused with everything that I need to do or not do. I am 41, weigh over 300pounds, have been sedentary for years untill the last 2 weeks or so, and I amwanting to lose over 100 pounds. I would really prefer a female (no offense, guys) who has already lost about the same amount as I want to lose. Being close to my age is also a plus, since my 41 year old body definitely doesnt act like it's 20 anymore lol. I really need help with most aspects for weight loss and exercise, and could definitely use the support of someone who was in the same boat as me. I have never really done any of it before, I feel lost.

    Are there any mentors who are still willing to take on a noob?

    I'm 18 years old and I weigh 135 pounds (heaviest I've ever been). I've always been really active, seeing as I was on a dance team in highschool. After college started, however, I put on a lot of weight because of the food available to me and my lack of commitment to the gym. I recently started Kayla Itsine's workout guides (basically HIIT style).

    Wow this is such a great idea! I'd gladly be a mentor.

    My name is Jahnavi and I'm 23 years old. I have tried to lose weight for as long as I can remember. I have been through the phases of making excuses for myself but have changed a lot since then. I'm trying to be more positive now.

    I am 5'3'' at 155 lbs. I started at 178 lbs and have a goal weight of 120, which I'm planning to reach by this summer or just after summer. I've overcome years of depression and am a lot stronger now mentally. It comes back time to time but I just fight it off. I have also struggled with emotional eating in the past, which also loves to creep up on me on occasion. I have no other choice but to fight it and live in moderation.

    I believe moderation is key to any diet. I don't believe in quick fad diets. The weight gain wasn't quick, the weight loss won't be either. As for exercise, I am very much into yoga, dancing/zumba, kick boxing and strength training at the gym. I do yoga every morning and go the gym classes in the evening. It's taken me a long time to learn about nutrition, exercise and weight loss. Through my research, I have also found cheap ways of losing weight when I was a broke student lol.

    I'm willing to share knowledge with 5 individuals who wants to make a positive change in their life. It will be on first come first basis. Please PM me with your background information and your reasons for wanting to lose weight. The reason is the most important thing, whatever it may be because it is what helps you keep going when you want to give up.

    My reason: Going on hikes/climbs around the world. I need to be in optimum shape to do so.

    I'm very late to this, but I'm hoping that I can find a mentor. I'm 23, married, and I work a desk job. Ironically, I work in the corporate office for a fitness company! I also have a free membership to their gym.

    The issue for me is my recovery. I was diagnosed with anorexia and hospitalized for the first time in December 2011, and was in and out of the hospital four times up to September 2013. I'm coming up on two years out of the hospital in August.

    My metabolism has gone insane as a result, and I'm having a really hard time with the amount of weight I put on, which actually puts me in the overweight range. I want to get back to a healthy weight, but I would love a mentor to go to with questions or concerns. (Just to be clear, not looking for a therapist - I have one of those!)

    Thank you for reading! :)

    I'm up for mentoring someone!!

    I'm 26, turning 27 this July (what up cancers!!!??). I started my weight loss Journey about 3 years ago when I reached my highest weight of 290lbs! The moment I stepped off that scale I began dieting. I lost a good amount of weight, so I took a break. Started dieting again and lost even more. I downloaded MFP in September of 2015 when I weighed 238, but didn't really use it to track. It wasn't until January, that I began living by MFP. I started off at 225 and (as of my writing this) have dropped to 188.

    Im the kind of person that when I have my mind set on something, there's practically no stopping me. I learn everything I can about a subject I'm interested in, and then implement it. That's exactly what I've done with this transformation. Of course I was unhappy with how I looked, *kitten* I was depressed about it. Just like you might or might not be. The only difference about us, is that we're doing something about it.

    I want to mentor an individual that has a mindset just like me. One that knows what they want, and will get the job done to achieve it. I will help you set realistic goals, create a plan to bring those goals to fruition, and motivate you along the way.

    I can help you lose weight, gain muscle, or maintain Your current weight. If you're interested, shoot me a friend request and a pm with your goals and information about yourself!

    Look forward to helping!!!

    I love this idea! Looking forward to making new friends myself. I've had some success & some failure but MFP has been a positive experience all the way around. Feel free to add me to your friends list if you want me on the team :) #notajediyet #lovethementoridea #lovemfp

    I love this idea! Having a mentor would really motivate and ensure accountability, not to mention feeling like you have a friend in this whole intense journey. I am 32 years old and have over 150lbs to lose, any support I could get would mean a lot to me :) I don't see a list of available mentors to browse through, so if any mentors see this message, and think that they would be a good match for me, please contact me and let me know :)

    I am looking for a Mentor to help me with my weight loss and fitness goals.
    I am a first time mom looking to lose the baby weight I happily put on but now regret. I lost 35lbs before I got pregnant by cutting out all soda and only eating when hungry and stopping when I was full. I know that sounds so easy but I didnt know it would work like that. How ever I did not eat healthy and never worked out. I am looking for a nutritious and healthy way to lose weight and some guidance on fitness.
