View Full Version : New Here

Hi everyone! I'm brand new here and i just posted on the buddy section of the message boards and someone told me to come post here. So i'll just repeat what i said there:
I have never talked about wieghtloss with anyone online before so i'm still a little shy about posting my weight. But i will say that i have about 110 pounds to lose. I'll give a little background for anyone interested in being a diet buddy. I recently turned 22 years old and about a year ago i started dieting, trying different things. I ended up really sticking with Slimfast, and actaully lost 53 pounds! However when Thanksgiving rolled around, then Christmas, and now New Years, i just completely gave up trying to stick with it, and ate whatever i wanted. I ended up gaining 13 pounds back and i REALLY don't want this to go any further and destroy all my hard work. But since i went off, i've tried to get back on several times and for some reason i can't get motivated again. I think having someone to account to would be good and might help me. If anyone else needs a buddy please e-mail me at yeats4ever@poetic.com :)

Hi Yeats Fan!

I'm new here too and I have a significant amount of weight to lose. I'm not sure how much (I have promised myself I'll buy a scale in the morning) but I know I'm currently in the 250+ range so I need to lose atleast 100lbs myself!

It sounds like you have a great start on your weight loss. Is 110 your current goal or was that your starting goal?

I'll tell you a little about myself and you can decide if you want me as your buddy! :)

I'm 29, I've been divorced for about 3 years now (no kids). Two years ago I moved in with my sister and her family so I could go to college (network administration). I work nights so I can keep my sister's children after school, I sleep during the day and then go to class in the evenings. One of my biggest issues is time! I never get enough sleep so when I have extra time that is my first thought.

My family is full of snackers! My brother in law loves to bake cookies & cakes so there are always temptations around. I just have to learn restraint. Also, we eat a high fat "country food" diet (for dinner tonight we had potatoe soup with Bacon!) I think my biggest problem is that I live in a house full of people with high metabolism rates. ;)

My plan is to decrease my caloric intake to 2,000/day and to exercise 30 minutes 5/week (walking). I start tomorrow, so please pray for me!! :)
