Default in need of a buddy or buddies

hey ladies,

so when i started on this site i was SUPER motivated and joining all the challenges and loving it. i started going down that slippery slope of realizing no one really knew if i was keeping up or not, and began cheating myself. i've gone through some rough emotional times recently that screwed me up food wise and i'm slowly being able to eat regularly again, but i'm struggling to keep up my calories. i also am losing motivation to work out. i know myself and i feel like if i have someone i'm accountable to, i will stay motivated. is anyone interested in an accountability buddy? i need someone to kick my butt back into shape every once in a while, or to lay on the guilt for making a bad choice (i know it might not be healthy, but i'm catholic...we live on guilt haha). i need my very own jillian michaels. in return, i can do the same...or be the nice girl. whatever works best. anyone in?

Don't know if it is too late, but I am interested also. I desperately need someone to hold me accountable and make me check in. I tend to fall off and hide from the fact that I am skipping out on my health and myself.

Along the same lines. I would like to find a buddy as well. someone to chat with on aim 3-4 times a week for about 10-30 min a day at some sort of agreed upon time. Someone to be accountable to...ie go through how the day went, did I exercise, stick to plan etc.

A little bit about me. I've been on and off of South Beach for most of last year. I've been dealing with alot of anxiety from my parents in the last month and the cravings have been unbearable. Right now I'm around 200# at 5'10. I have about 50# to loose. I'm finishing up college this summer and getting ready to "join the real world". I'm going to try really hard and get through this summer, figure things out and not take every little frustration out on fast food. In addition I can't afford fast food anymore because I'm broke.

Anyway I would someone in a similar situation, but anyone would be great. If more than 1 person message me, maybe we could set up a 3 way chat or something. thanks guys.

I have a name - The Shrinking Violets -

We're shrinking and, well, I love purple, so its a little biased, but I thought it was cute

Also, we could create a google group (I don't know how but I could figure out quickly) - I don't think you have to have gmail, and we all just email all day to check on each other.

I love the name...doesn't hurt my favorite color is purple also.

Amyleigh...how are you doing on your diet and exercise? Tell us all about it.

Also, we all need to check in (or at least I do) because it is a holiday weekend which means food and excuses not to workout.

So, guess I should start. I have the day off which is bad for my diet - I am watching my carbs and have done pretty well the last few days. However, I still have a hole to dig out of from cheating so badly on Tuesday. Worked out yesterday by doing an hour of cardio and burning 600 cals (after taking two days of rest which were really me just being lazy).

Don't know what it was about this week - maybe just the holiday and having time off. I also took Monday off so 4 day weekend

I plan to work out this afternoon sometime, but getting a manicure and pedicure sounds so much better right now. Talk to you girls soon!

Hi ladies! My week unfortunately is not going so well. Yesterday we went to a pizza place. I only ate one slice, BUT I also ate 2 pieces of garlic cheese bread. You know, I'm not really sure what my deal is. I know how to eat well and ww is easy for me I guess I just choose not to do it. I do good for breakfast and lunch, its when I get home and we eat dinner! I do ww from home and all I have is a points slide. I would really like more info. I also know it would be better for me to go to the meetings for the accountability.
Hope everyone elses week is going better than mine! Have a great 4th!
