Default senior buddy needed

After having success losing weight by dieting and using this website I've lost my way and gained 50lbs back. I need buddies who are near my age 61 who are involved with the same struggle for support. I want to get back on track and feel successful again. I have the size 10 jeans hanging in the closet waiting for my return. Soready

HI rITA, tHANKS FOR THE REPLY. I'd be happy to have you have you as a buddy. So where do we begin. I start each day with the greatest of intentions but by night time I've blown it. I seem to find my way to the kitchen in the middle of the night when I can't sleep and I must say I'm not too selective as to what I eat. Of course I beat myself up mentally all the next day. A vicious cycle really. Bernice

HI! well you sound like me!!!!!!!!! I really have good intentions but never follow thru I work nites soI usually dont eat much thru the day but at nite I make up for it I love sweets I keep telling myself I am not going to eat anything sweet but always looking to find something I am at 150 and I really need to loose as it took me a year to loose16 lbsso as you can see I dont have will power I know if I lost at least 10 pounds it would help my knees and improve my cholestrol so maybe I could get off the pill so maybe you can get me motivated well have a great weekend !!!!!!!!!!!

Well this holiday week-end didn't help my diet as I hosted a barbeque and served lots of fun things to eat that would be healthy if eaten in moderation but did I follow my advice to myself. A resounding NO. I tell myself I will start tomorrow and get serious. Even my little dog seems to have porked up. Maybe I will take her for a walk after all we would both benefit. Rita, tomorrow is the first day of the rest of our lives so lets take control tomorrow, get on the (gasp) scale and get started and see how much each of us can lose in a week? Are you up to the challenge? Bernice

Rita, my e-mail addy is not accepted by the website so I don't know how to get to you. The addy you gave me keeps being returned. I did ok today and yesterday. Going to the MD tomorrow cause I think my blood pressure is out of wack. I've lost 4 lbs just have another 50(gasp) to go. Hope your day was good and you have kept on program. Just what kind of diet are you following. For me it's eating less,cutting down carbs and some exercise. It was 90 and humid today so I didn't go for a walk. Hope to hear from you soon. Bernice

Hi Rita, got the message but it won't let me put in a addy because I haven't posted 50 times.
try doing the yahoo thing with kashapuppy as the first word. Hopefully I'll hear from you. Sorry about the 4 lbs. My Dr changed my medication and is doing tests. Believe it or not the med change has made a difference. Don't feel like I'm walking into walls or my head is exploding. What kind of work do you do? Bernice
