Not new to myfitnesspal, just ready to add some friends. Anybody need a friend!? :D

My name is Ashley. I am not new to myfitnesspal. I have been on here a little over 2 months. I have just been logging my food and exercise for my own personal information. I have not added friends, and I've kept my diary private. I have also used myfitnesspal in the past very successfully. I had lost over 60 lbs. I loved the support I got from all my friends then. But life happens, my career changed, I stopped being active, stopped coaching soccer and I was always busy. I went from crazy active and losing weight, to desk job at a computer all day. Don't get me wrong, I couldn't be happier in my career; I'm just not happy that I gained back a lot of the weight, and haven't been active at all. I woke up one day and decided to get off my *kitten*, and get active, before I regained ALL of it! So here I am. I have joined an amazing boot camp, and started eating better, dumped my non supportive boyfriend, and dropped some negative friends from my life. I have started putting me first, and it feels amazing! Since joining my gym I have realized how much I missed the support of like minded people; people that actually want to succeed. I am tired of dealing with those who start strong and fizzle out once it gets hard. I need the constructive criticism of my food choices and exercise. And I need to motivation of seeing others' food choices and exercise. I am ready to start adding friends. Will anybody have me? LOL!

    Thank you everybody! I will be adding every single one of yall when I get back on an actual computer. :)

    It sucks that some of yall have also gained back some weight. But im glad I'm not alone. After all we are human. But what counts is we are all back at it. And I know getting the help and support on here from great people will help immensely.

    Someone asked about bootcamp. Over a month ago a new gym opened close to my house. They caught my attention. It's called Delta Life Fitness. It's a bootcamp. It's high intensity interval training. The workout is different everyday. And it kicks your butt! If anybody is getting bored with their usual workouts, I highly recommend finding a bootcamp program. You don't realize just how out of shape you are until you start a HIIT program, let me tell you!!! LOL! But I love it! It sure beats staring at the wall on my treadmil every day. Every day is different, and challenging. It's always a full body workout. I was intimidated at first. But now I'm hooked!

    Anyways! Thanks for all the replies. Can't wait to lose this weight with yall! :)

    Always up for more friends! This is my 3rd but most successful time on MFP. Things have changed in my life too, I went from a job that ran my life to a desk job where I now have control and have lost 35 pounds since the end of September. Currently I am feeling a little stuck, no weight loss in two weeks, so someone that has some inspiring, kick me in the rear words would be great!
