    Hey, I'm Justina. Heard about this group from one of my MFP friends. I need to do something different because I've been struggling to stay consistent. Been trying to lose weight since 2009. Lost 30 but gained it (and more :'( ) back when I was studying for the CPA exam from 2012 - 2015. I've been having trouble getting and staying on track since I finished the exam in 2015.

    Looking forward to having some good results this month.

    Hi! I am doing this because I want to do a challenge for November and this looked like a good one. I gained 20 lbs in the past few years and want to try to lose it. I have been doing MFP for over a year, but can barely maintain. I used to exercise regularly, ran marathons and even became a cpt ( on paper.) But life and my health have been messy, so here I am. I know a lot , but applying it consistently is difficult for me.

    @missjones513 - I love your profile picture/quote. SO true!
    @Sunnysided1 - Knowledge and application are 2 very different things for sure! My husband was a CPT (many years ago) and he has a degree in Sports and Exercise science. He chose a different career path and has distanced himself from that world, but still retains a lot of it of course. We both have committed to getting back in the gym and focusing on our health. Motivation and staying commited is the hardest part!

    Hello everyone. I'm Sylvia, sahm to two rambunctious kiddos. I've been on MFP for a long time. I've currently lost 50lbs and have 50 more to go. I joined this challenge to get myself more active. I usually exercise about an hour a day but i really need to move more throughout the day period. I've set a schedule to adhere to and i know it will be harder to resist eating more as I move more so Here i am. Good luck everyone

    My name is Kelsea. I am 25 years old and currently work as a nursing assitant before beginning my master's program next year. My current goal is to lose 14 lbs by February 1st and keep it off/keep losing through summer. School will be very busy, and I would like to be in control of my weight before I start.

    I'm single, so going out with friends tends to get the best of me. Similar to others who already introduced themselves, I am horrible at eating and drinking after logging in my diary all day. I joined this challenge to keep me accountable of all of those extras that I tend to let slide.

    I wish everyone the best of luck! Please feel free to add me as a friend!
