I had originally posted in support but it was suggested I come over here! So Hello!! My name is Tina.

I am a really upbeat person and do not get down often. I worked really hard a few years back and lost a bunch of weight! I went from a sz 22/24 to a sz 12. We 5 yrs and 2 babies later the weight has been creeping back! After I had my first daughter I got back in shape pretty quick. After my 2nd daughter 8 months ago I have done terrible!! I need to lose about 40-60 lbs.

I have started doing weight watcher, although I am not attending the meetings I know the program well. I am also starting the 30 day shred tomorrow.

I am just so sad. I feel like I have just let myself go. I want to be a positive example for my girls and show them being healthy is important and I need to lead by example. I guess I am here looking for a diet buddy. Someone I can email or facebook with to just chat, share, laugh with while we meet our goals together.

I really need to do this, I really want to make these changes in my life. I have these 2 little amazing blessings and I do not want to be winded running up the steps!! I want to be the fun mom playing kick ball!

If there is anyone who wants a diet buddy to meet goals with please let me know. I really feel like I would be more motivated with a buddy who is going through the same things! LOL I am not normally this much of a drag or whiney LOL!! I am very upbeat with a great sense of humor. I am a SAHM and am 32.

Thanks for listening

Hi Tina! I know exactly how you feel!! I tried doing WW at home for a few weeks but really needed to start going to meetings again, I went back on Wednesday. I really need someone to be accountable to.. I'm a working mom of 2 girls ages 6 and 9. I really need to lose about 50 - 55 pounds. I'd love to have a weight loss buddy, pm me if your interested!

Hi Tina.


I think you'll find we're a friendly bunch over here at the 30-somethings and everywhere across the different boards. We're all here to lose weight and help each other achieve it.

Ditto what Mollie said. Lots of buddies here on the 30's board. We are all in the same situation.

Welcome from me, too! You'll get there again :) I think most of us have regained at least once -- but for me (and you) this will be the LAST time we have to lose it, right??!!

Thanks for all the kind comments guys! I am excited and motivated!! I have made a bunch of quick, healthy foods so if I get hungry I just do not feel tempted to grab something unhealthy. It is a start..LOL

Hi Tina, I'm new here too, and recently started putting back on some weight after losing quite a bit. Right now I'm working on a weightloss plan that I took a lot of time to write, based on an article at a popular blog called Zen Habits. The post is 29 ways to ingrain a habit...or something like that. I don't think I'm allowed to post links here but it was really helpful to me to apply some of the principles. It's just a well thought out plan of attack. I'm usually pretty impulsive so I thought maybe I would try something different and write a detailed plan. Feel free to pm me if you want to trade encouragement via email or whatever :)

Welcome! I, too, lost this weight after baby #2...then we had 2 more babies in 3 years and here I am with 50lbs to loose again. DOH!

These boards are great. Relax, do your best, and you will do great!!
