    Me too! I'm 5'5" 161 and wanting to get to 145. It hasn't been that long since I've been there, but I fell hard off the wagon and need to get some accountability back in my life. Started tracking on Noom and I'm loving the free version, but I'll be back to MFP fulltime next week when the Noom trial runs out.

    Food is also my biggest issue...I'm great during the days but when evening strikes I lose control.

    Just restarted this week! 5'4" about 150, would like to get to 133-135. I've always had an athletic build and played sports through college, but now at 34 my body composition is different (I lost a lot of muscle not training Everyday for hours) and I'd like to lean out. I started Actually weighing/measuring my foods this round because Man it is So easy for me to over eat (I mean come on, we used to carbo load the night before track meets), I'm using the Nike training club app to vary my workouts more and incorporating running back into my workouts.

    I need to get back on track too! I'm 5'4", 170, but a size 8-10. I have stayed consistent working out 4-6 days per week, lifting heavy, and adding running back in for the past month. But lack of scale movement = time to face reality that my eating sucks. I'd like to get back to about 150-155 when I was a size 4-6. I've been a competitive CrossFitter, weightlifter and marathoner, but 4 years of living in airports traveling every week for work has taken its tole.

    I started again myself. Believe it or not, my issue is I don't eat enough to lose the weight. After having to take 3 months off d/t health issues I am back at, need to drop 15lbs.. ( would prefer 20, depends on how I look and feeel at that time)

    Same here, I was down to 127 3 years ago but a stressful work environment and desk job has taken its toll. Not much for gyms but I love being active by doing anything outside like running, hiking, biking, yard work. This winters’ been particularly challenging here in southern Alberta because of the crazy amounts of snow we’ve gotten. Looking for a few people to challenge me and keep me accountable!!

    28 (almost 29), 5'6" and currently fluctuating between 137-140. Want to get closer to making 137 my "high," so my target is 130-135. I was good for ages but then sabotaged myself a month ago by overestimating exercise calories :s So I'm back to cutting for a while. Please feel free to add me!

    I'm restarting as well. 5'0" and 128. I feel really good around 115. My husband keeps telling me that's not realistic because I have more muscle than I used to. What I care more about that pounds is inches off my waist and butt.

    Also, restarting:

    Goal is 125.

    This time round I"m 1) eliminating sugar, flour and wheat...all of which seem to trigger bingey eating for me. 2) reducing processed food to as close to zero as I can get...amazing how much food is processed, more amazing how much of it I eat. 3) Weighing and measuring my food.

    I'm 5 ft 8 inches, so I carry my weight well, but I'm an athlete and lighter is better.

    Feel free to "friend" me.
