    Hi, have been using MFP for several months, just noticed there are groups! Looking for friends, so please add me if you'd like.

    When I was 46, I had a thyroid issue, and now take levothyroxine. I gained a lot of weight (about 60 lbs) as the doctor figured out what was going on.

    I started my weightloss journey in July by eating healthier, but that got me nowhere. I dropped about 12 lbs but felt like crap. Was then diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, though I didn't think that was the problem.

    Long story short, my dr suggested low carb in late September, and I jumped right in. My life has turned around. No more pain from fibromyalgia, and I'm losing weight left and right. Overall, I've dropped over 30 lbs, and find the lifestyle change is pretty easy. I love meat, and while I miss breads and pastries and such, I have good self control.

    I still have about 30 lbs to go. For exercise I ride my horse, and try to do so at least 4X a week. Any other equestrians here, would love to get some calorie burning info to compare to what I have.

    Fantastic that your feeling better & getting fitter.. add me if u like.. i wanna loose about 25lbs more...

    Nice to meet you! Excellent weight loss and props on the horseback riding - riders are so strong with legs of steel!

    Just started my fitness pal , turned 40 Oct last yr and joined local gym started doing 2 classes a week, has now progressed to doing 5mornings! Previous did 5:2 before starting exercise but now struggling with low cal days as definitely need more cals and then feel I pig out over compensating. Deciding need to focus more on daily good eating and going to try and log a bit more seriously now to track macros... getting confused and having a Costco pizza for lunch maybe wasn't best day to start!

    Hello everyone! My name is Stephani, I'll be 43 next month and from Southern California. I've had a MFP account for years but never really used it much. After spending $$$ on personal online trainers I've decided that I need to do it myself, for myself...with a little support from friends. :)

    I've tried different meal plans and currently I'm trying the IIFYM eating plan to see how I like it. I don't believe any diet plan is better than the others. It's all about how it fits your lifestyle and how it makes you feel.

    Feel free to send me a friend request - stephrz :)

    Looking for friends in this group. I have been a long time MFP player but just got rid of all my friends, got a new account and starting over. I am looking for friends who are serious about fitness but like to joke and have a good time on MFP while trying to stay healthy. Feel free to add me if you are like minded. I am on here multiple times a day and very supportive of my friends.
