I am very new to mfp. I just started yesterday. I had been using another app on my phone but it didn't have the features that this site has. My dh and I are both trying to loose weight and eat healthier. I have two children who I want to be a good example for. I do have some weight to lose but I mainly want to change my eating habits and get into better shape. I am tired of being so weak and feeling tired all the time. I would love to have some buddies to motivate me and share ideas Have a blessed day!

I have found this site to be a great place for support. I also have a strong focus on health along with weight loss and want to set a better example for my son. It's great that your husband is on board too!! Feel free to add me!

I will send you a friend request. This site has been very helpful to me. It is inspiring to see what others do for eating and exercise. Good luck on your journey!

On the eating healthy side, try

Scan your grocery/restaurant receipts, and it'll find anything that's bad for you.

Good luck!

Hi I'm new too, i've struggled all my life with my weight but after finding this feel very positive about my future success to lose weight - the fact this app is on my phone so with me all the time is great as i can record everything as i do it . Today I've actually struggled to get to my 1200 calories so this has been a real eye opener. Fingers crossed for us all on here battling the bulge :-)
