Looking for friends

Anyabean17 Posts: 27 Member
I'm not new to MFP, but I'm sort of new to the whole friends thing. I have one friend I know personally, and one I met here on MFP. I'm hoping to add more friends that log in and even post status updates once in a while. Hoping for motivation and encouragement--giving and receiving. I'm a big introvert at heart and don't see myself posting in forums all the time. I'd rather just have a few friends (either introverts like me or outgoing extraverts or anywhere in between) I can get to know a bit. I'm looking to lose 30 pounds, and just started the You Are Your Own Gym DVD workouts, and wear my Fitbit mostly every day. Okay, hitting the Post Discussion button now.

    I've been around for a while too and new to the community thing too. I'm an INFJ (meyer Briggs) so I certainly understand the introvert thing. I just turned 42 and have 100+ to lose, so I will be here for awhile. Feel free to friend me if you like, I could use help with motivation too.

    Anya_KC, I am very much an introvert, like you. I have a hard time posting in forums. I am just returning to MFP and am also looking for some motivation. Perhaps we can encourage each other. I am 44 on Saturday and need to lose 35 lbs. So, feel free to add me as a friend as well.

    I'm also shy and introverted. Trying to get out of my shell a little bit. I'll add you. My goal is to be active with my posting and challenges in hopes of staying motivated and get this weight off.

    Just started (again). I'm almost 45 and need to lose 50 lbs at least. Have high blood pressure and Dr is concerned. How do you add friends? I may find it before anyone answers since I am exploring while being bored at my desk job...

    Add me as well. Fellow introvert here. I like to motivate and encourage others on their weight loss journey because it helps me stay focused on mine.

    Feel free to add me y'all. I'm also an introvert. Probably won't be very active on forums but, would enjoy having a few friends to cheer for on this journey. I'm 47 and have 120 lbs to lose.

    I log in and post once in a while. Have been told I can be funny, but more of a 'hey everybody point and laugh at that guy' kinda way. Feel free to add me if you'd like.

    I just joined this week and I am looking for friends as well. I will add you all if you will accept. I am 43 and have about another 40 lbs. to loose. I am usually pretty optimistic, but could always use encouragement and happy to give it back.
