    I'm 5'4", and have gone from 262 to 190. I'm now maintaining due to pregnancy, but will be back on the weightloss track once I've delivered. I still log in every day and log everything I eat to keep myself accountable and avoid huge gain. Feel free to add me.

    Hi Ella! I haven't personally experienced depression, but my husband battles it. Can I recommend something that has helped him a bit? We started him on a good probiotic and it has really helped. Look into gut health and its link to depression and anxiety. It's really amazing how strong the connection is between the mind and the gut.

    Hi, Ella. :) Feel free to add me. I've battled depression and anxiety my whole life; I know it can make losing weight so much harder. I'm an emotional eater with a fast food addiction (pizza), so it's always an uphill battle. Let's do this together. Anybody else, feel free to add me as well. The more, the merrier.

Some days are hard, other days are harder because you are fighting a battle not only with your body but your mind as well. Let's keep each other motivated so we can meet our goals.

    Hi, I just got married 21 days ago. After the honeymoon, I found the weight slowly packing on. Just from choosing healthier food options, I already lost 2 lbs in less than a week.
    I'm 5'1, 126 lbs. When I got engaged over a year ago, I was 115 lbs,that's where I want to be

    I am on day 12 of my journey. I have about 140lbs to lose. I post my struggles on my profile. Add me.

    I'm a single mom and veteran who is socially isolated much of the time. I could really use as many friends as I can get.
