    Hi I'm back using this app. I didn't get good results last time in 2018, so I'm reaching out for friends this time. I've learned so much about intermittent fasting and it's curing my joint pain!

    Can I ask why you both have more than one GW? It stands for Goal Weight, right?

    Lileemac. For me it’s small steps rather then big leaps will get me further. And accomplishing the little wins will build my confidence

    Hello I’m a stay at home mama to three. I have a three year old, 2 year old, and a 7 month old. I used MFP after I had my second baby and lost 50 pounds but I’m starting over since gaining the weight back during pregnancy. I’ve started my weight loss journey in April so that I can lose this weight for good and finally feel good in my own skin again. I’m breastfeeding so I try to stick to 1800 calories to keep up with my supply.
    I’m 27 and 5’4
    My SW-231
    1st goal- 199
    UG- 150-160 range

    Hey mama- let's be friends!

    I was super conscious about what I ate and was active on MFP right after I had gastric bypass. I lost 136 lbs, met my soon to be husband, and now I've gained 70 lbs back 😥.

    I'm getting married in July and would like to be close to 1st goal, have a son who is 6 yrs old, and work remotely for the last year which has been terrible for physical activity.

    Hi! I’d like to be friends. 🙂 I also had weight loss surgery (gastric sleeve) and lost 190. I kept it off for 3 years by eating right and exercising. Then I got a concussion and gained quite a bit due to lack of impulse control with food for 3 years. Uffda! I’ve been trying to do WW but I think counting calories might be a better choice right now. On a positive note, I’ve kept off 109 pounds.

    Hi! I was in MFP for years and then quit to join WW. I did not love the program, so I am back! I like the community and having friends on this app. Let's be friends!

    I am also looking for friends to embark on a weight loss journey with.
    I was losing weight last year before the pandemic started by going to the gym every day. I’ve gained 30 lbs since the pandemic started. I am committed to making a lifestyle change and getting healthy. My main reason for wanting to lose weight is for my health as I have recently been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I want to be around to meet my future grand babies one day. My kids are 25, 20 and 17.

    Hey - I also used MFP a few years ago but stopped.
    I am 29, 5'6, SW 199 and UGW 140-150 I think? Like you I have other goals along the way :) My first one is to get to the 'overweight' category not 'obese' - I have about 7lb to go to this!

    I’ve also had great luck on MFP in the past and am working to get back into it! Please feel free to send me a request to anyone who wants a friend to support and push them. Hope you can return the favor!

    This is my second time around and I'm hoping it sticks this time! The first time, my heaviest was 170 and this time it was 200 so that's freaking me out a bit!

    I have a long way to go, but it's definitely easier with friends! :)
