I'm here to lose!

Options
I know probably only like three people will see this and that's okay lol.

My goal is to lose 105lbs in a healthy way.

I need friends who are gonna be active on mfp and who will comment on my stuff, and won't mind me commenting on theirs (: Support is essential for my success and I want you to succeed as bad as I want ME to succeed!

A little about me: I write, paint, and draw. I am starting college in January. I want to be a mental health counselor. I lost about 60 to 80lbs back in 2013 but I had exercise bulimia. So I'm a little scared to get carried away with counting calories again but I haven't found any other way that works for me. So! I just have to be careful.

Tell me a little about you! Add me and feel free to shoot me a message! I'm going to start logging in the morning. (:

    Welcome to the boards! Now you know that at least one person saw your post, lol. I have struggled all my life with Binge Eating Disorder... have made good progress in the past five years or so, finally. Would be happy to share stories and support. I'll send you a friend request.

    Hi there! I hope you are able to succeed - it's great that you're motivated. I'm trying to get back in shape myself, and it's really tricky to get back in the habits and routines that allow me to hit my goals - I'm hoping I can get some extra motivation myself by getting involved in the community.

    Hi there.
    Like some of my other friends here I too have been binge eating and gained a lot of weight. Recently joined myfitnesspal and lost 2 kgs. I want to continue further and lose as much as possible in a healthy manner. I think having an accountabilitybuddy will help us keep ourselves motivated to a greater extent.

    Hey! Welcome to MFP. I also have quite a bit of weight to lose. I'm at about 205 with a goal of 125 or so. I already lost almost 40 lbs through MFP, and I have found it quite useful. I at one time got quite crazy with counting calories and wouldn't take vitamins because they had calories. I've learned now that it's okay to go over a little bit, and it's okay to have high and low days. If you want feel free to add me. I post almost daily, and try to respond to people as much as possible.

    Thank you all SO much for your responses and support! I struggle with binge eating disorder too. That's how I got so heavy early in life and got heavy again after I recovered from my exercise bulimia. It sucks to start over but I know that I need to do this for my health. I've added you all! :)
