    Hey guys! Me, too. I'm 6'1" and 330 pounds. I'd like to weigh under 300 pounds - for my first goal. Then, 250. Then, 225. That should be a good weight for me as a 51 yo. I find it difficult to stay on track... I don't eat, exercise, nor drink lots of water with consistency. I must develop stronger WHY's.

    Still looking for motivated pals to lose all that weight with me!! Just add a note to your friend request saying you found me in this community! My goal this week is to log everything I eat (Good or bad, over or not my calorie goal (1200) ) and not to eat after 8PM since that's a problem for me!! Lol I snack a lot LOL

    Hey y'all...looking to do the same...completely new to this type of community, so you may have to hold my hand. I'm tracking everything in hopes of putting a dent in my 70 before surgery in February. Not sure how to do friend requests or anything else -- is this easier on your mobile device?

    Hi, I'm new to Fitnesspal. I'm 5'4.5" and about 230. Want to get to 185 early next year, then 160 in future. For me, losing is easier than maintaining. I lost 50 in 2014 and 2015 by walking up to 25 miles a week, along with swimming and hiking, and counting calories, cutting out carbs and keeping a food diary. Then I got sick and inactive, lost my BodyMedia activity tracker due to them quitting, quit logging my food, started eating "normally" meaning carbs, and put it all back on plus 10 extra. I really want to work on lifestyle change, and my fitbit is helpful; walking or some form of regular calorie burn is a must, but no carbs permanently is difficult for my lifestyle with teenagers and a husband who loves carbs. When I log my food and move more, I am lucky to lose weight.

    So I have lost 6 lbs this month so far and hope to learn how to permanently live an active lifestyle (again) and not just give up if I have health challenges or lose my activity tracker.

    Best of luck to all.
