looking for friends to get in shape with

I'm new to Myfitnesspal so I'm not really sure how it works yet but I've heard good things. I'm currently 254 lbs and I want to get down to at least 160 lbs. I have very few friends all I do is work and come home. but I'm tired of feeling self conscious and I want some friends who will motivated me and vice versa. so if anyone wants to take this journey with me I'm right here.
