Default Need A Buddy!

I can't do it on my own. My family is supportive but they always are. I need someone to be accountable to. Any takers?


I'm torn between wanting someone just starting out like me or someone who has been doing ww for awhile.

Part of me is saying go for it....you need to get healthy the other part is saying why bother?

Why not have a couple or even many buddies? Everyone on 3FC. Or even just people in the WW area. There are daily chats. Logs for weigh-ins. Or posts for weekly exercise and the like.

I think that especially at the start of this journey, it's difficult to see the "why bother?".

Where would you like to be one year from today? Eating healthier? Or still overeating? Exercising? Or huffing and puffing up stairs? Down a few pounds, maybe close to goal? Or bemoaning the fact that you let a whole year go by without "bothering" to try?

I suppose this all boils down to "You can do this! You're already doing it!"

Hey, if you don't find a buddy on-line here, you might try WannaBuddy.com. The site connects local people who share a common interest, like weight loss. Everything's based on your zip code, so it's easy to find someone nearby who's also looking for a workout buddy.

Good luck!

I am looking for a email buddy that will help keep each other accountable. I have been doing weight watchers on my own for over a year and have lost my groove so to speak. Really need someone to help me be accountalbe. I think email would be good since I have it on my phone now and more accessible. Anyone want to be my email buddy?

well I am just getting started as well. Did very well on another plan but the cost was over the top. and regained some of those hard lost #'s... Need some help as well as this is my first with weight watchers in YEARS.. lots of changes since then..

some one asked about sharing email addresses.. you can do that by sending a private message in the log in area.. up at the top of the site..

Pick me Pick me...lol...i started a week ago and would love to have a buddy to e-mail or text. Especially someone who wont get tired of my prattling on about ww this and that or woohoo i found something low point. DH is patient but it only goes so far.

Maybe we could pick a day and do a weekly weighin under this group? Or just post your weighin under a sticky?? Not sure if they have sticky threads on this site..i've seen them on dwlz (which I love).

If anyone wants to have a e-mail/text buddy, PM me and we can get somethin together.

My first week was great by the way...7.7lb loss...woot woot

I'd love to have an email buddy! I'm just starting out, and I need someone to yell at me from time to time.
