Looking for friends!

I'm 24, started at 275 (my heaviest ever), and lost about 14 lbs so far. I joined a gym last week after not exercising for several years and I'm planding on focusing on strength training. Looking for friends to help motivate me along the way.

I've got about 100lbs to lose. My first goal is to lose 50lbs, then get under 200, then finally be at about 170. I know I can go even further than that, but I've never been that weight and I'll have to reassess my goals when I get there :)

    Great start on your weight loss! Make going to the gym a part of your routine and find some exercises you enjoy. Feel free to add me as a friend. I'm on here daily, open diary and exercise at least 4 times a week.

    Well done on your loss so far!

    I have lost 12lb so far with 92lb left to lose so we are similar in our goals.

    I will send you a request and we can motivate each other :)

    You and I are in the same boat! I started at 345, lost 65lbs, and then plateaued while I was pregnant with my daughter. I just started last week at 278.8 and would love someone to help stay motivated.

    Great weight loss. You can add me. I'm here everyday. I'm doing Insanity Max 30 ( round 2). I have 20 lbs to lose after having a baby.
