  • Thank you for sharing your story. Life it tough. We really do have to just keep on keeping on. Never give give in or give up on your goals and dreams!
  • Hello! Would really like some more active friends to cheer me on and so that I can do some cheering on as well! I'm on a mission and need all the help I can get!
  • @sandielewis2001 hey yay, my weigh-ins on on Thursday also! Am not really looking forward to my weigh-in tomorrow morning. I started exercise classes almost a month ago and wasn't overly active before that besides for walking my dog most days. The classes are very intense and after 3 weeks I lost 5 pounds, which was great,…
  • Hello! Been lurking for a couple of weeks and finally decided that this is a place I want to be! My name is Linda, I'm 42, 5'9" and have struggled with my weight for a very long time. I get alot of "you're tall and carry your weight well" and " you look fine, you look healthy". Yeah, I don't feel healthy. My joints hurt…
  • Hi dabercrombie456! I sent you a message and friend request, I think. I am in need of new friends as well! So many of mine are either never on here or they just never like or comment on any of my stuff.
  • Not sure how mamy times I've come back to MFP either, lol. The main thing is we're back! For me, this is the last straw. I will get to my goal this time and you can too!
  • You can totally do this! To start with, you're in the right place! 7 lbs. is tough, any weight to lose takes hard work. Stay consistant with your efforts and you'll get to your goal for sure!
  • Hi! I'm not new to MFP, and at one point was doing quite well a way back in 2015 with it. Alot of life happened in the last 7 years bringing me back here several times and now I'm back for the long haul to finally reach my goal weight. I am in my early 40's am 5' 9" and a pear shape. SW: (July 1, 2022) 225lbs. CW: 221.4…
  • Wow theres lots of posts on this thread. Didn't need to read all of them because we are all looking for the same thing-more active friends who will support us! I tried adding a couple of people a few days ago but they either didn't accept my request or something went wrong with the request. Please add me if you would like,…
  • Wow! Great journey so far! Very inspiring and encouraging! I will be checking in from time to time to see how you're doing, to re-motivate myself, and to cheer you on! Keep up the amazing work!
  • I just came back to mfp Sept. 01! I have almost no active friends anymore. Add me, I will do my best to motivate and cheer you on!!!!
  • Add me! Need motivation and really enjoy giving motivation. I have an open diary and a run streak of 73 days currently. Most days I feel like I only have 2 active friends that log on and motivate me and my list tells me I have something like 21. Still have at least 40lbs. to lose and would like all the help I can get!
  • I have an open diary and can not "add" anyone when I click on their names. I have at least another 45lbs or more to go to get to my goal weight. I want to be there for my daughter (17 months) and keep up to my husband who is 9 years younger than me. Please "add" me!
  • Hi, I want to add you but there was no option to do so. Please add me so we can motivate eachother!
  • I have a 17 month old who keeps me super busy. I gained alot of weight before and after she was born. I have 50+lbs to lose and need all the motivation I can get! I also really want to set an example for my daughter.
  • My diary is open! Not sure how well I would take anybody posting judgements on my wall, has never happened yet. I judge in silence and will most likely never comment unless someone really wanted me to keep them accountable. Add me if you'd like, I do need more encouragement on this long journey.😊
  • Had my baby 3 months ago and am at my biggest weight ever of 226lbs (am also 5'9")! Am looking for motivation and new friends with similar situations to slim back down.
  • Hello! I too am 5'9" and was once upon a time 170ish and would like to see south of there also. Last year I suffered from depression and then got pregnant and am now the biggest I've ever been at 226lbs! Really am looking for motivation to get back down to a healthy size. Also, my baby was born 3.5 months early, and that…
  • Just got married and husband has no job. He hasen't had steady work for almost a year and it's caused depression in both of us. Realised I've gained the last 4 months on top of the 15lbs. I needed to lose originally. Can't sleep well at night due to stress, so it makes me super hungry for anything I can get my…
  • Yay, people who love walking as much as I do! I walk a minimum of 5kms most days and absolutely love it! I try to make time for some body weight exercises also during my walks.
  • Huge bowl of popcorn(sometimes air popped, sometimes made with oil), with lots of melted butter and salt. My boyfriend and I were doing this almost every night! Added in a movie, had to had some pop with it (root beer of course
  • My phone won't let me add anyone, so please add me if you can. I need some motivational friends and I love to motivate others also!
