    Hi, I would love to join. I don't have too many people to help keep me motivated. I have 58 lbs to lose and have lost 3 lbs. I am trying to eat around 1500 calories worth of food. And I am walking everyday but also doing 20 minutes of pilates and 30 minutes of cardio.
    I have been following this for a week so far.

    I would LOVE to join!! I have been struggling so I think this would be perfect! I haven't lost any weight yet. I have been going to the gym for about 2 months as well as making healthier food choices. But I've seemed to gain weight☹️ Maybe some accountability and motivation is what I need!

    I'd like to join. I've been working out and dieting since the end of February. If everything goes according to plan, I should hit my BMI by mid-June in time for summer. (My final goal weight isn't until the fall - and from that point I will commit myself to maintenance) So, I think this would be a good challenge for me because I'd like to keep myself on target (or ahead).

    Please count me in! I am trying to lose 15 - 20 lbs. After my 2 pregnancies, I made it down to my pre-pregnancy weight relatively easy, but when I stopped nursing I put on weight, fast. 10lbs in 3 months after my first child, the 2nd one I was more prepared for the changes and weight gain... but still put on a good 7-8lbs. Now I am exercising hard 2-3x a week and chasing 2 kids the other days and I am stuck at the same weight for a while now - I don't eat great, but not horrible (most of the time). I try to stay under 1,400 calories.
    Been on MFP for a while, but always stop using and then months later I come back for a bit. I am hoping to stay motivated this time...

    I'd also like to join the challenge and get back into it.
    I need to lose another 28lbs
    I've already lost 65lbs in total (between 2012-2015)
    I've recently been at a maintenance stage where I haven't gained or lost. I'm looking to get back into it and lose the remaining stubborn body fat.

    I will eat around 1600-1700 calories whilst working out 4 times a week consisting of weights and jogging.

    Im in.

    Currently at 282. Have lost 78 pounds since mid January. I have basically been cycling the same 80 pounds yearly for about 4 years. This is the point I generally start slacking off and gaining the weight back. I have managed to stay motivated a bit longer this time and dont feel like I am losing the drive. I would like to be down to 260 by the start of June. I am ultimately shooting for 200 by November when I am going on a vacation to Rome. 10 hour flight can only be more comfortable the less I weight. :smiley: I am trying to keep my calories up a bit so I am at around 2000 +\- 200 per day but I am also working out 75-100 minutes per day. I am walking/jogging (week 5 of c25k) approximately 6 miles per day plus doing a 30 minute upper body weight workout every other day. I take Sundays off to give my body a bit of a break from working out. I am concentrating on not pushing too hard. Last year when I was at this weight I was walking/jogging 10-15 miles a day and I think my body rebelled against me.
