Lol we are all your buddies! But what I would think would be a good match is someone who is silimar to you in how much weight you need to lose, and where in the program you are so you could root eachother on and make sure eachother stays on task. Come to think of it, I have about 32.8 lbs to lose now, and I have been on IP for a week on Friday, so we have very similar stats! I'LL be your buddy! Haha

Aw I'll be your buddy too! I am right about where you are, and our goals are similar too. We can keep each other accountable and complain on bad days.
We will get there. Let me know if you need anything or want to chat!

I'm pretty much right where you are now and headed where you're headed. It's true though, everyone really ends up being your buddy.

I recommend finding people who start at the same time, not with the amount of weight to lose. It's amazing how close you will get over the next few months.

I'm just starting week 4 and would like a buddy that started around the same time with the same amount to lose if there's someone out there! Of course you are all my buddies - really appreciate these message boards. No one in my world understands what I'm doing.

No one ever understand what we go through in our world, they think all we do is eat when most of us don't. I'll take on another buddy! We can do like Josey and I do on Facebook if you have it.

I'll have to join you ladies on FB. Josey and I are at similar weights now but I have a bit more to lose but know that I need all of the support that i can get. I'm great at starting diets and finding all kinds of odd ones (my friends call them psycho diets) but I am not so great at sticking to them. I have committed to sticking to this one.

Sounds good Loriab, I am Michelle Sims Josey on fb when you try to find me, just know who to look for requesting friend (I teach High School, so don't friend if I don't know them or if they are students). Lots of people call me Josey, so don't worry
