Looking for some MFP friends who are getting in shape!

I could definitely use some MFP buddies to keep me company on this journey of getting in the best shape of my life!

    i'm trying to transform my round shape into something a little more fashionable, maybe a trapezoid or rhombus. :tongue:

    i just started p90x today, so hopefully that'll help soon!

    Feel free to add me, I haven't been this active since I was about 12 or 13. My week includes two sessions with a trainer, a yoga class, lots of walking (on the street and on the treadmill) and I'm thinking about starting a Zumba class once a week.

    I am one of those! I lost about 20 lb (gained some back i had actually lost close to 30) but the main thing is my body fat is getting less and less. I wear a smaller size despite being heavier than I was a few months ago. My goal is running 3x a week and doing 5k races, working up to 10k... also want to get my eating back on track and avoid sugar and sweets. i can do this!

    You all can add me too ...... after years of sitting on my butt, I'm finally taking charge ..... I get to the gym 5-6 days a week, aiming for minimum of 10 miles cardio (bike, TM, elliptical) ...... then weight-circuit (love the leg machines) ..... and then, schedule permitting, a yoga class ......

    I'm trying to discipline myself to do yoga at home each morning ...... but sometimes I'd rather just sit with a cup of coffee & read these posts :drinker:

    Best of luck to everyone !

    Anyone who wants can add me. I was in pretty good shape in my thirties and early forties. Had to go on a med that had several side effects, 30lbs weight gain avg, raised cholesterol and blood sugar levels to name a few. Kept working out though and became the strongest I ever have been but went from 155 to top out at 198. I am now down to 165 and planning on going down another 5 to 10 lbs. Then will go for a 10 lb increase of muscle mass. I hope to end up at 165 to 170 with 10 to 12 % bodyfat. I have tried in the past to lose weight but failed until I prayed and told the Lord I couldn't do it and that I would need His help. I then started losing. A total of 33 lbs so far.

    I started MFP a week ago. It has been fun to keep track my food & exercise so far. But I know myself too well that I would lose motivation soon. It will be great if I have friends who can support each other.

    I live in TX now and planning to go home in Japan in November. I would like to lose 50lb - at least 30 lb by then.

    I've been on here almost a year. I started out very strong, slipped through the holiday, regained my motiviation and started P90X and broke my hand 4 weeks in. Feeling better and back at it! Wanting to be around and active with my two boys (7 and 3.5) is my inspiration. I started at 206 lbs on my way to 180ish (10 lbs to go)

    I keep my friends list fairly low so I can be active with all of them. I am not here to pump your ego with insincere compliments but I will give you genuine support, encouragement and praise. I do make a few off color comments and jokes because taking life too seriously is not what I am about.

    I camp, hunt, fish, coach youth street hockey and baseball, love fantasy sports and my family.

    That said, send a request if you think we'd be a good match.

    and in case that is not thorough enough for you....I'm a Virgo and live in Massachusetts!

    Add me as well :) I've been on here regularly since January and am down 14 lbs. I've lost my motivation the last two months and was slacking majorly... I was originally down 22 lbs. but have obviously put some back on. I'm ready to re-commit to myself and get back on track for the long haul. I'm on daily! Looking for some friends to help me along the way too :)
