    I am 44 and have 100 more pounds to lose, but would love to add you as a friend.... I have lost 70 pounds total so far... some before MFP.... 54 on MFP... I love to root people on and help encourage... I am a very positive person... I am getting my teeth pulled today (all of them) so I won't be on here for a few days.... but now I'm on a liquid (or really mashed up so I can swallow without chewing) diet.... Hoping this will help me lose a little more :)

    I've got 59 pounds to lose and have been struggling with motivation for about 5 years. I could definitely use some buddies who are in the same boat. Feel free to add me!

    Hi all - I'm 49 and keeping on after a small loss over the past year. Need to lose about 70 more (give or take some). My actual goal is to make Overweight (and not Obese) by my 50th birthday in September. Feel free to add me!

    Hello everyone! I am turning 47 in April and need to lose about 35 lbs. Just started on MFP a week ago. Have been working out for a couple of weeks and have joined a ballet class. Trying my best to keep the calories down, finding it difficult while also making meals for my family.
