Looking for Lady Pals 5'3 needing to lose 75 pounds

PerlaRubi2013PerlaRubi2013 Member Posts: 154 Member Member Posts: 154 Member
Hello! My name is Perla and I have been a member of MyFitnessPal since 2013 and I managed to lose 55 pounds, and life happened and I am sad to say that I gained all of it plus 1 pound but motivated to get back on track going back to the basics, if I did it once I am confident I can do it again. My current weight it's 220.6 and I am 5'3.....I am looking for some ladies on the same path as me so we can keep each other motivated! =)

    I would like to give this a try. You and I are about the same size I am a inch shorter and from your picture a lot older. But my blood suger is getting higher and I really need to do something about it. I have always been heavy. We can motivate each other. I am Darlene

    Hi Perla!
    My name is Jacqueline and I’d like to join you on this one if it’s still okay. I’m also 5’3” and have about 70 lbs to lose.
    I’m brand new to MFP- just joined on Saturday!

    Hi I’ve just joined this morning- I’m 5ft 3 and 196lbs so need to lose at least 70lbs I guess. I’m in the UK so we have stones here for some reason - I need to lose about 5 or 6 stones which works out about 70lbs.
    I gained all my weight when I quit smoking and I still can’t believe I gained so much weight before I even noticed!

    Yes log everything you eat and then you start modifying in order to meet your daily calorie goal! It works, just take it one day at a time! You can make your recipes and divided for how many servings, this app it’s just amazing ❤️

    Hi Perla! My story is similar to yours. In 2012 I lost 55 pounds. I did not reach my goal but I was looking and feeling good. I kept the weight of for a couple of years but slowly gained it all back. I am 5’2” and weigh 203 lbs. I am looking at Noom, but it seems silly to do that when all my info and recipes, etc., are here, and I know this is a really good app. My issues are getting and staying motivated so I do much better in a group. Can I join you?

    I’m 5’2 and need to lose 80 pounds

    Older also, I’ll be 50 this year! We’re mostly stuck at home right now, so my husband and I are taking 45 minute excercise walks M - F. That helps.

    Do we want to start a group? My timeline is covered with ads.
