I'm not from Ohio, but your board name threw me off... I hope your initials are JR and you are trying to get "skinny" for yourself... and not for someone else, 'cause that would never work out!
We are neighbors, though, since I am from Indiana. Not exactly close enough to do workouts together, though, lol.
Anyway, I hope you find a buddy in your area, and good luck to you!
PS - did you try at the Buddy Up section?? Just a thought...
