Looking for motivation partners! 100+ lbs to lose

I totally put this on the "getting started" board when I should have put it here! So here's my copy/paste lol!
I'm currently a stay at home mom of 3 boys, 7 years, 2 years and a 2 month old! I recently started the ketogenic diet and so far I'm loving it! I'm 25 years young ;) married to an amazing man that is soon leaving for a total of 13 month deployment. He works long hours now so he's not the best with support, though he eats all my healthy food lol!
I'm 5 foot 7 and currently a whopping 260lbs! That number is so depressing to me. My ultimate goal is to lose 100lbs and be a standing 160lbs by time my husband returns from his deployment! (Long shot, I know) but as for now I have my little goals for 20lbs at a time. I know that slow and steady wins the race! Feel free to add me. I'm definitely new here and not sure how everything works but would love some more mommy friends, or just friends in general! Lol!

    That's a great goal! You can do it! Just keep going! There are some great work outs on Amazon Prime that you can do at home. I'm sure your schedule is full with 3 kiddos!

    Feel free to add me. I am 5'7" and at 248. I have just over 100 lbs that I would like to lose. My son is 15, so I don't have little ones. Though, sometimes he acts like he is 2 and I wanna smack him. :smiley:

    I'm in the same boat! I am 24 years old, married, no kids. I need to lose 120 pounds to be in the 'regular' section of a BMI chart! It's going to be a long journey, but completely worth it!

    I am in the same boat, well as far as being 5'7'' and 265 pounds, with a large goal too. I started in at 273 and want to be at least 180. So I have your back if you have mine!! Lol

    I'm on a similar journey, I am going to lose another 100 lbs this year, already lost 24lbs since I started with a PT in mid November.

    If I can share what I've found, denying yourself food or foods doesn't work - eat clean, unprocessed food for your main diet & moderation on the rest - stay in your MFP target & log everything - even if it puts you over!

    Exercise is everything & don't shy from the weights as well as cardio - it accelerates your base metabolism rate & really helps.

    Try not to "lose 100 lbs ... rather, lose 1lb but 100 times" ... don't know why but that makes me feel better

    Add if you wish... I don't ramble on quite as much but do log every day!

    Congrats on your decision to better yourself! I was on a similar journey about 2 years ago (started at 300 and now I'm 173) and with help and encouragement from my MFP friends (along with others in my life) I was able to loose about 130lbs. That journey has ended only to start a new one which is to maintain my weight on the long term. Feel free to friend me and Ill be happy to assist in anyway I can.
