    @dawnnewland1 You may already know this, but I just learned it yesterday, to follow this group click the star at the top of this page. It will mark it as your favorites. This thread...….from what I'm understanding, is basically adding someone to a group. That's all I've figured out so far...…..other then there are some really supportive people out there ;)

    Please add me! I lost 10 pounds last year, I’m hoping to lose at least 15 this year. It’s so hard. I cannot keep myself motivated to exercise! I really need people in my life to encourage and motivate me!

    @staciek1963 Today is the third day in a row that I have gone downstairs during my break to exercise. Today felt SOOO different then the huge struggle I had Tuesday to do it. I had not exercised in over a year, and 20 pounds later....on top of the weight I already needed to loose, I am at it again. The struggle is real, but so can the success be real!

    I’m not sure how to add people but I would love some inspirational people to start this journey and beyond. This is a life long journey for me and a goal to be my diabetes. It’s manageable now but I want it gone! I like healthier foods and do well when my hubby is on the road. He is starting to be heather for me but would prefer pizza, subs and well, you know 😁

    A goal...….haven't put a number on it in a long time, because I have missed it so many times. I want to be successful this time. So I am going to try to be realistic. I think three pounds a month should be attained. What I really want though is to be down 25/30 pounds by my family reunion in July. So here it is...….my realistic goal is to be at 188 by end of June, which is 3 pounds a month. To break it down: 200 at end of Feb; 197 @ end of Mar; 194 @ end of April; 191 @ end of May; 188 @ end of June. Sure doesn't seem like much...….I really want to be much less, but I have to make it achievable. Hold me accountable!! :)

    @ deanaslone Welcome to this group, at least that is what I am figuring out. I've only been here, this go-round, for 2 weeks. I think what people mean when they say "add me" is as a friend. Then those people will show up on your home page and you can see their activity and they will see yours. I like these threads too. I need to communication along with it. So, I will add you :)

    To add friends:

    1) Click on the username in the left sidebar. A window will open.
    2) Click on the username again. The user's profile will open
    3) Click on the "Add Friend" button. (There's an option to send a note along with the request. Always a good idea - just let them know where you found them - some common interests, etc.)
