    I'm on a journey to lose 70 pounds and am looking for accountability in friends. I live alone and don't have a very big social life so I was hoping to find/meet others that need support and encouragement in the MFP community.
    If you're on a journey to lose 50+ pounds and need some I inspiration, accountability or ideas - add me or comment!

    Here is the thing 70 lbs maybe too much and may actually discourage you .
    Shoot for 1 lbs 70 times and before you know you will squash your goals.

    hey! I'm new "again" trying to lose 50 lbs. I gained a lot of it because of depression and anxiety, now that I have that under control I feel the need to get in shape. I could use all the friends I can get. Please feel free to add me!

    My health. My legs have had to carry extra poundage they weren't designed to do, which, it seems, has led to poor lower body circulation and refluxed veins. I somehow contracted cellulitus on one calf, which led to lymph edema, which led to a referral to a vascular surgeon who ran his tests and gave me that verdict. Meanwhile, it took months for those wounds (think water blisters that continue to seep fluid) to drain and heal. Months of clinic visits, antibiotics, and homecare nurses changing dressings.

    In other news, my blood pressure is high, though not yet requiring medication. My blood sugar is getting up there. The word 'pre-diabetic' was not mentioned, yet. My father had Type 2 diabetes, which cleared up after bariatric surgery. My sister has also had the surgery. I really don't want to go that route, but I have to get rid of the weight somehow. So, here I am.

    (And we haven't even gotten to how it feels trying on clothes and having to get a bigger size each time.)

    Thankfully, MFP is working for me and, as of this morning, I've lost 33 lbs!
