    Hello! I'm in the same boat. I decided to try this weight loss journey again a week ago...I need to lose 30-60 lbs 😩

    Looking for some motivational friends. I have an old list of people who have disappeared.

    Hey Kesh, I've been on here for a minute too. It's sad, but if I have an old friend that hasn't logged on for a year or so, I drop'em. It's hard, but it is also nice to look at my 'friends' and see they have all logged on in the last couple of days, and they are active and making progress. That's us, right? :)

    I lost 201 lbs and then my mom passed away and I gained almost a hundred back. I lost a considerable amount of that and then my dad passed and I regained a lot again. I started losing again and now my last remaining Grandparent passed away a few weeks ago. I don't want to regain yet again and lose all the progress I've made this year. The problem is I'm an emotional eater. I'm hanging in there so far, but slowly all my friends left MFP over the years and all but one of the remaining ones never interacted with me. So I'm essentially starting over in the friend department. If anyone is interested in new friends, please feel free to add me. ❤️

    Good evening everyone ☺️...I sent out friend request today. If I accidentally missed you, please add me.

    I've never had any friends on here, so I'm not sure how this goes. I would like to have a group of people trying to accomplish similar milestones. Are we going to post ideas, meals, etc. in this group chat or just comment on each other's page?

    I am restarting like everyone else. I have been on here for a long time, 10 plus years I think, but after my last kid I stopped tracking. I am back now trying to work on myself now that things have finally settled down a little. I have lost a lot of friends due to my absence and would love to build a group that is active and likes to get involved.

    Hi I'm Kris from Australia🦘
    I was on myfitnesspal over 10 years ago, but times, weight and phones have changed.⏳

    It's day 1 of restarting with MFP. I definitely need friends for accountability and motivation. It's a two way thing don't worry so I'll support you too.👐

    I have no idea how to add people 😔sorry. Feel to send a request or message 😀

    I started today. I have atleast 50lb to lose but I'm going to take it a day at a time whilst I get used to the app. 1lb a week more is a bonus but steady loss is more sustainable for me . Celebrate the wins , commiserate the gains. Its good to do something. Sons wedding in 4 weeks so hope to have lost some by then

    I'm just starting today and removed all the inactive friends leaving only those who have posted in the last month. Looking to be held accountable to lose 30 lbs.

    Me too! I did Noom last time, this is my first time trying MFP. I've got 30+ to lose this time. Last time it was more like 10, so we'll see how this goes!
