    Been back a week or so after being offline a couple years. Lost 24 pounds from July 3th until just before Christmas. Gained back 2 and started tracking food last week and now I'm at 25 pounds down for the first time. Back on track.

    35 more to go. Happy New Year all!

    Have used this app on ond off for a while but never connected with anyone so found it hard gettinh motivated. I'm finally in the right headspace to do it properly and would love to get to know others on their own weight loss/keep fit journey. I need to lose around 105lbs so have a long way to go but hopefully with the guidance and support of you fantastic people I'll get there sooner rather than later ☺️

    Hi Everybody,
    My name is Nancy. I am 70 years old, and have had a weight issue all my life. Literally. Lots of emotional eating, and simply bad choice eating. I have tried mfp before, and only did the free site. I started this past week, selected the Premium, I think I'll be more accountable if I pay. Have done really good this week, making good food choices, logging and exercising everyday for 60 minutes on my recumbent bike. Husband and I went to town today, had fried rice and sesame chicken, not too bad, but then oh we had a blueberry fritter. I did my logging, and exercised my hour, I am still within my numbers, but, I know I am not happy with my choice. Tomorrow is another day. We acknowledge and move on. Happy New Year to all of you, and this is our YEAR! <3

    Hi all! I've been on and off this app through training cycles for a few years and being able to track macros and making sure I hit calorie goals helped boost performance. I had baby#2 in May so I haven't been as focused on fitness or weight for a while, but since she's becoming a little less mommy-centric I figured it was a good time to start some self-care again. I'd like to lose about 40lbs this year and get back into half-marathon shape by June.

    Hello all,

    After long doubts and a difficult period, I took the plunge.
    And fair is fair I could use the support of a group.

    My name is Fleur, I am 40 years old and mother of 3 daughters (22,18 and 14). And with my lovely husband Jurgen for 24 years now.
    I work as an HR assistant at a large company specialising in facilitating intermediaries. So my job is 80% sedentary.

    Hobbies: Drawing, crafting cards

    I would like to finally discover a better and healthier way of eating and exercising.
    My goal is to lose 60 LBS.
    But then with small intermediate goals.
    It didn't come in 1 year either....

    The challenge is I don't tolerate gluten and little lactose.
    So eh yes long story I already... so I am much to tell🤭
    Any help is welcome 🤗 so feel free to join my journey

    Hi everyone! My name is Vincent, and I'm trying to lose fat and gain muscle. My weight goal is 140, but I want to look, "big and intimidating," so I'm pretty sure I will gain weight again (only in muscle). I am currently 206 pounds and have lost one pound since the year started. My workout regimen is odd, to say the least.

    I am on antipsychotics and psych meds that cause weight gain. I also have a chronic skin disorder that gets worse depending on how heavy you are. I am personally tired of being sick all the f-ing time, so this is another reason I'm trying to lose weight.

    Good luck to everyone on your journey!! Happy (late) New Year as well!!! :smile:

    Hi all, I’m Sarah from NZ and I started 1 Jan.

    So far so good, I kickstarted the year with a week focused on diet and exercise and have lost 3kg. I was pretty strict during the week, but I wanted to take advantage of the time I had over the Christmas holidays to reset. Now I’ve returned to work so easing back a tiny bit and building new habits into my daily routines. Probably the opposite way most people go about it 😂

    It’s definitely becoming easier to balance macros on a daily basis now I have a better understanding. I’m going fairly low carb, but I have medical reasons for that.

    So pretty happy so far. Here is to an awesome new year!

    I'm Jeffrey. I've been on and off MFP for years but over the past two years I've lost weight, kept it off, and became someone who goes to the gym 4-5 days a week.

    I started with MFP, went to weight watchers, then got a personal trainer. All of that got me to where I am now.

    The problem I'm having is i have no community. No fitness friends. No health journey buddies. I miss the community WW provided me. The people I met there were very supportive and fun to talk to. I just don't need WW anymore and I don't want to pay for it to be a part of a community again.

    I remembered that back in 2016 i had a number of supporters and friends on MFP app under a different profile. I thought maybe I could return here and try and find a community again. Lets see if this works.

    A little about me. I'm in my thirties, i enjoy sober activities, I have a ton of pets, I'm a married gay man, and i live in the northeast. I would love a check in/accountability friend. how about you?

    Add me :-D

    I’m turning 47 this month. Mostly I’m here because my diet has been just horrible for years and I really want to clean it up. As I get older I’m finding I’m tired all the time and my body hurts when I leave work at the end of the day. I’m determined to get my eating, exercise, and self care on point this year. I want to start feeling good in this body I have and currently I really don’t.

    Hi everyone! My name is Luis and I’m new to MFP. I’ve gone into this new year with a brighter outlook on life, health, and my own self image. I want to work hard to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle. It’s only been a few weeks, but I can already feel myself taking little steps to a better future. I’m wishing everyone nothing but success in their journey. It won’t come easy, but it’ll come!
