Ready to lose 100+ pounds!

My name is Winter. I'm 22 years old, getting married in october. About 5 years ago when I was in high school I went from 280 to 230 using MyFitnessPal. But the way that I was eating was super unhealthy. All I was eating was smoothies and protein shakes. And I was barely hitting 1000 calories per day. Well now I'm back and I weighed in this morning at 285 pounds. I'm not happy with my weight or my body. My first goal is to get to 250, then 225, and then 199. I want to be under 200 pounds. Ideally my doctor would like me to weigh 160 or below. But when I look at the big picture it freaks me out and I end up binging. So I'm starting out by just following the calorie intake that MyFitnessPal gives me. Which is around 1500. Wish me luck, and maybe add me as a friend! I'd love some support on this journey!

    Hi Winter. I have literally just made my account. I have used MFP twice before, and I think I failed because a lack of weight loss support. How do I add you as a friend?! And do you want to message a few times a week to keep each other on track?

    Good luck! The good thing is that you're taking from your previous experience to make better choices this time around. Small milestones are better than the finish line. Plus, you get to celebrate more. Hard work is more enjoyable if you can pat yourself on the back from time to time.

    Great mindset girl. I'm Kait - I've lost (and kept off) over 100lbs and am now a competitive bodybuilder. I started and restarted probably six times before I found my groove - so you're ahead of me in the game!!

    I'm a no-BS, consistent user (I've got a 1077 day streak) and tell it like it is. If you want some positive motivation with a sprinkle of bad-assery, feel free to add me if you like - I support change, not excuses!

    *insert kissy face here*

    Happy Saturday and happy STARTING!!
