I am looking for a buddy to lose weight with me.
I am 20 years old (almost 21!), 5'7", and 195lbs. I started at 198 about a week ago. I am trying to get back to the body I had in high school about 3 years ago. Of course then I thought I was huge, but I was always between 140 and 150 and I was very active. I was captain of the Lacrosse team for 3 years and drum major of a very competitive marching band. Needless to say I was always doing something. That has changed.
I recently started working out with a personal trainer about once a week and by myself about 3 times a week. I want to be working out around 5 times a week, but I am afraid that if I shock my body too much at the beginning then I wont change my lifestyle and I will stop and slip back into old ways. I have also started Weight Watchers. I have done it in the past with success, but I never had as much to lose. I want to lose weight and keep it off for good.
I am hoping that if I have a buddy then I will be held accountable for my progress and I will stick to it better. My first short term goal is 8 pounds by halloween. It is a stretch, but thats how goals should be. Since it is about 4 weeks away that means 2 pounds per week. Its possible but difficult.
I hope there is someone out there who wants to try to conquer weight loss with me. I know we can do it!
