Looking for partners in crime (or partners in losing 70lbs!!)

Options
Hi, I'm new to the boards though I've been on MFP for years but never successfully.

I've tried VLCD (Cambridge plan) and they work - for the few weeks you can maintain them!

Now I have 70lbs to get to my healthy BMI. I joined WW, but find myself coming here instead. 2 weeks in and the scales are starting to shift.

It is a long haul. Does anyone want to join me? I'm 41, live in the UK and am planning on going slowly but surely. I can't exercise other than swimming due to a bad ankle. So it is food tracking for me.

    Hello I am also looking to lose 70lbs after gaining it over several years. I have had a few false starts in my quest to do so. This time I plan to log everything daily over at least 100 days no matter what I eat. I'm happy for you to add me as a freind.

    Hi! I’m starting today with the goal to track everything no matter what! I have about 45 to lose and I’m tired of the yo-yo dieting. Having an accountability partner would definitely help!

    I need to lose about 50 myself. I’m super lazy most days. I’m trying to change that. I’m logging every bite no matter how bad it reflects on me. I’d be more than happy to have an accountability buddy.

    How is everyone doing 3 days later?

    What has everyone found to be good support/motivation on MFP so far?

    Yes! My scale says 199 lbs today (about 27 lbs lost this year since my high in May) so as of now I have at least 65-70 lbs (if not more) to lose to get to goal! Because of pain I am currently on the “flailing around” workout plan technique. Bright side is my muscles have always been easy to build, down side is it’s quick to get to a workout plateau that way. I am working on getting back to logging— it works as long as I have time to do so.
