    Hi, I just turned 29 yesterday and have struggled with my weight for too long. I'm 5'1 and weigh 139. My goal weight is around 110. I could really use some support to make my goal a reality. Thank you for reading!

    Long time off and on user of MFP here! I'm now working with a fitness coach so won't be updating meals and workouts every day, but hoping to use MFP for a little group accountability as well! 5'2, 31 years old:

    SW: 166 (11/30/16)
    CW: 162
    GW: 125

    Currently doing 4 HIIT 60 min cardio workouts per week and 2 lengthening/toning workouts (barre, yoga, etc.) Work 60 hrs + per week in a VERY stationary job, so moving is the key for me. Good luck, friends!! Look forward to tracking our progress together!

    I'm 23 years old, 5'3 and 150lbs. I started here in January 2016 at 175lbs and got down to 148.2lbs by June. I got off track over the summer and haven't been able to start up again (moved into my first house end of August and life has been crazy). I am finally getting back on track with my weight loss and am hoping to lose 20 more lbs to be 130lbs. I would love more friends with similar stats to help stay on track :)

    Just learned about tickerfactory.com over on the Challenge board. One caution was to be sure to save the URL it creates for your account so you can return to update. The bbcode it produces can be pasted in a message to produce this image.

    Grrrrr.... I've been picking all weekend! So sticking to calorie goal but picking in between, I really want to stay focused right up to Christmas Day I'm hoping to lose .6kg this week. Next week is a crazy week for us as myself and my husband own a butcher shop so will be happy to maintain. My plan is to take Christmas Day off, no tracking, eat what I want and then get right back to it the next day.
    Love the tracker image thing, must have a look at getting one.

    Sonya, are you going to post weekly? If so, what day? I'll be trying to keep up with the people who are committed to posting weekly updates here and are willing to follow others doing the same. The friending bit is another step I need to skip to have time to take care of business. Like the treadmill that awaits me now...

    Looking for some more friends (I've added many from this thread and they are great) who are active on day to day news feed. I guess I'm needy, but I need the interaction to feel like part of a supportive community. Please consider adding me if this is you... Thanks, Nikki

    How many calories per day should a 5'0" 20-year-old take in to lose weight? She said that her 'trainer' told her 1500. Personally, I think that is way too many (if she wants to lose the weight she has gained since being in college). She doesn't want to starve herself like she admits doing in HS. Buying healthy food to cook is expensive and sometimes her college schedule doesn't allow her to cook that often. I'm only the concerned grandmother who sees her upset and hurting; but, tries not to further hurt her feelings. I'm on MFP and I keep up with everything I eat or drink, track everything that passes my lips. I also do not 'eat back my calories'. Whatever I take in, will be within my caloric intake, or I will just mark that I am over by whatever number that is. I get weighed-in every 2 weeks and do not weigh myself between; and, I take my daily printouts to her so she can see what I am doing and make suggestions how to 'kick start' me off a 'plateau'. I try to get at least 15-20 minutes (minimum) or (sometimes more) of exercise on a daily basis. Her boyfriend can eat pizzas and junk food and his weight does not fluctuate any or if so, he can not eat junk and lose it quickly. Sometimes to buy healthy foods like fruit, etc., only means that it might go bad before she fix it and sometimes to do so or she is tired and gives in to eating pizza with him. I know at one time she was on MFP; counting macros (but, then got off because she just could not work around it) and said it was too time-consuming to be able to keep up with it and make good grades, so she would be entitled to the HOPE Scholarship. I don't know if she is back on or what? She exercises; but, I'm not sure it is on a daily basis and other than doing weights, I am not sure of what other exercising she is getting, other than walking up and down hills changing classes.

    Can anybody give me advice to pass on to her? I will tell her about this tread and maybe you can encourage and motivate her or give her some tips. I'm already on a thread for someone my age and it is very motivating. She wants to try a certain 'detoxing' program; but, it is too expensive for her at the moment. I'm on a MD-ordered weight loss control program and I had to get under a 1000 a day in order to lose. I have protein shakes and bars that I drink/eat and I have lost 40lbs; but, it has taken me about a year-and-a-half to do so, losing slowly. Supposedly, for my age group the caloric intake to 'maintain my weight' is 1100-1300 a day. If she gets on this thread I won't be checking behind her. So I am not 'bookmarking' this thread either. I know how to get to it if I need to.

    Thanks
