    Hi everyone! I'm a 48 yr. old stay at home mom of 3 (all girls! 21, 18, and 9). Several yrs ago, with a lot of hard work, I was finally able to get to my goal weight and size. Also maintained it until last year when I had pneumonia. Long story short, it took months to recover and I lost most of the strength I had gained (gained about 15 lbs due to lack of exercise and poor eating habits). Anyway, I'm still trying to get the old me back. Eating clean is the hardest part for me. Tracking my calories helped tremendously the first time around, so I'm doing it again. I would love to have more friends to share the journey!

    Hi there!
    Not sure how the Friends thing works... 47 year old, happy wife and Mama... 42 days logged into MFP, I've been using the Pacer app for steps (goal of 20,000 per day, usually met) since November 2nd, and have recently purchased the Fitbit Charge HR for keeping track of my heartrate while working out.
    Not a gym girl... I do low impact aerobics at home (with and without carrying two pound weights) and walking along the river.
    My motivation these last seven weeks has been that it feels SO fantastic to be so active! I don't 'diet', but MFP keeps track for me-- I just do my part by logging my lunch and cookies, and working out (aerobically) for ideally two hours a day (incrementally, or not)-- or at least an hour /hour-and-a-half, otherwise. I figure that if I exercise 1,000 calories a day and eat with purpose, I should come out ahead. :)
    I'm hoping to stay motivated through the next year... losing seventy pounds.... maybe having weight loss friends could help with that!
    I'm down 14 pounds since I bought a scale five-and-a-half weeks ago. That's pretty good motivation, too!
    Blogging is familiar territory for me, so I've started a weight loss blog here on MFP, so I don't irritate my fb and local friends too much with my Go, Me!!! pep. :)
    I'm interested in finding and supporting friends, though it may take me a minute to figure out how it's done!

    Hi everyone! I'm a 40 year old, mom of 3 (11, 8, 7). I'm married to a wonderful guy, who is always supportive of what I do. I'm motivated to lose 15-20lbs to get back to a healthy weight range. But, more than the number on the scale, I want to be strong, toned, and have some endurance! I can't afford a gym, so having a gym workout buddy is out. I have plenty of videos and work out apps that I can use at home. I just really need a support system to keep me accountable and motivated! Feel free to friend me.

    Hello everyone, I am a 44 year old single mother of a great 11 year old boy. I suffer from several illnesses which have left me disabled. I call them the silent illnesses because you can't see them. My goal is to not let them beat me and instead lose some weight, regain strength of mind and body. It would be nice to meet others on here and work together to meet our goals even if there are good and not so good days. B)

    I would love to have some friends that are closer to my age too! I'm 40, happily married and have 4 kiddos (all boys ages 4, 6, 9 and 11). Needless to say I'm in the weeds a little but I love to interact and see happy faces on my MFP. :)
