    I would love to join this group. It helps to be active on the thread too. I am going to do 5lbs. a month. I know my body and how hard it is to lose. I started the Whole30 program so I am not able to weigh until April 14th.

    Hi Britnaii22,

    I just want to mention your math is ambitious and has you losing 65 lbs instead of 55. 55 lbs is hard enough! :)

    Hi Sarah,

    I suppose if you are including my starting weight from February that would be right, but from 226 (my current weight right now) to 170 is 55lbs or 56lbs if you include that extra one ;)

    Could you try re-sending me a invite. Somehow I never got one and it won't show me a join button on the group page.

    I tried re-sending the invite but it said you were already an applicant? Not sure what that means.. not a lot of people have become members yet (hope that hasn't been an issue for everyone else too :( ) so I went ahead and made the group public, so you can try to join again if you'd like! :)

    I would love to join in! Just joined the group! I agree with the others it might be easier to keep track and stay more organized in a group and have different threads for weigh in each week, support, challenges, ect...

    10lbs a month wow it takes most people 2 months to lose 10lbs
    Good luck everyone too harsh for me

    I tend to agree. I lost 10 pounds the first month I started on MFP, and then 5 pounds in the second month, and now 3 pounds thus far in March. I think I can aim for 7 pounds a month from April until September, which would be 35 pounds. Anything more would be nearly impossible to achieve when you factor in plateaus and potential exercise interrupters (such as injuries).

    I haven't received a request for you to join yet, maybe there's a bit of a lag with myfitnesspal, did you send the request to join the right group?

    Here's the link just in case :)

    Hi; I am once again beginning this today; I weight 295; 5' 3.5" and am having a knee replaced around June 1st; 2016; I am 65; and very sedentary. Would love to have support on this journey. I saw we are around the same weight; so though we may be able to help one another with this life changing experience.
