Hello everyone! I've had an extremely stressful time over the past 3 years in which I have gained 100 pounds of excess weight. I'm looking for supportive encouraging friends who will help me along my journey and I along theirs! I've lost 22 pounds already and I'm determined to continue till I form habits that support a healthy life style.

    Sorry to hear about your rough 3 years, but you are already kicking butt and taking names! 22 pounds is a great deal of weight. I have about the same amount to lose. I'm adding you!

    keep up the good work. I have been so sluggish and eating so poorly the last year. Had a stressful year. Gained 40lbs. Started Thrive and have tons of energy and am back on track to a healthy life style. Have lost 15lbs in 6 weeks. Feel amazing and no longer crave crabs. I was a total junk food junkie. Thanks to Thrive I no longer crave carbs or need a pot of coffee just to get going. I also love MFP. having a good support system and people who help hold you accountable help alot also. Add me as a friend if you want. We got this!!

    I passed my 108 lbs weight loss goal last week and encourage you to keep up the great work. You can do it. I learned a lot through the process including to forgive myself for the days I strayed.
