Default 40/5'9"/257 Looking for a buddy or pen pal

I'm back. I came on 3FC in 2006, hoping to lose the weight. Here I am, 8 years later, and in the same position.

In 2006, I posted a similar plea to this, so I thought I'd try it again.

I'm looking for someone to buddy up with on my way to losing weight. It'd be nice to find someone with similar goals to compare notes every day or two (or three) with. I always find that having someone to report to keeps me motivated and accountable.

I'm 40, 5'9", and weigh 257. I just started Atkins 10 days ago, and lost 8.5 lbs my first week on Induction. I've done Atkins many, many times before, and hope that this time things are different. My ultimate goal is to weigh around 165, but I'm trying to focus on short-term goals like (1) being able to fit comfortably in my clothes, (2) losing 10% of my start weight, etc.

About me...I'm married and have 3 children - a 16yo boy, 13yo girl, and 3yo girl. I worked for years, but have been a stay-at-home mom for the past 3. My exercise consists of nightly walks with my son - so not much. I also enjoy playing games, watching my kids play sports, watching reality TV, and couponing (!!). I don't have many other hobbies - my 3yo keeps me busy!

Please contact me if you'd like to have a pen pal. Let's support each other!
