Wink Singles Supporting Singles

Hi There,

First let me start by saying "I've done this before" Actually I've tried to do both before. I've tried to lose weight and I've tried to start a thread for Singles. This is not to say that married people are not welcome. However, I'm hoping this will provide support, friendship and most of all a sense of belonging for single people trying to make it in a "happy couple" world.


I live in Tennessee, I just turned 34 I have never been married and I've never come close. I have (gulp) 60 pounds to lose. To make my singledom even more "typical" I have 2 cats

I work in a very stressful job environment, come home alone to the cats, and eat!! I do try to work out but that needs an overhaul as well. I have been heavy all of my life and truly believe that is one of the major problems I have in meeting "that right person"

So there you have it. Me in a nutshell ('cause i'm a nut )
If you wanna join so we can support each other..I'd be honored.

LA

Hello,

Fellow single girl here. La, you sound just like me except that I am 36 and have 20 more pounds than you to lose I have never even come close to being married and I know it's the stupid weight that is preventing me from meeting Mr. Right (if he even exists) I don't like that the world is this way, but I guess I can understand.

I have no cats but I do have a dog.

But I am trying to lose. I just joined a gym and I am trying to go 5 times a week. I am still trying to get the eating under control.

Slimmings, you are so young. I hope in time you will get over the bad breakup you had. Just keep in mind that all women aren't bad. Most of us are pretty great.

Lynn

Hey gang. LA told me she started this thread, so I thought I'd drop in. I've known LA for a while & we posted on the old thread together. We've kept in touch even though the thread died down.

I'm 32, SINGLE, never married, no pets. I live in Texas. At this point, I probably need to lose 80-90 pounds. I've lost it before, but slowly gained most of it back.

I work long hour & have a heck of a commute to work, so exercise just doesn't hit my radar. I know all the things to do, but am just too tired to do them.

I ate horribly this weekend. Spent Friday night watching movies & eating pizza, Saturday night at a hockey game drinking beer. Today, I've just been a bum. I can usually do well during the week, but the weekends are just tough.

Anyway, I hope this thread stays really active & we can offer lots of support to each other.

Have a great week!

Hey there Kids,

How are you all doing? I am doing pretty good. I went yesterday and did the worst thing a fat chick can do: I tried on pants I am more resolved than ever to lose weight. I lost 20 pounds last year and have gained half of that back :/

So here we do again. Starting tomorrow I'm going to go back on WW. I have to lose weight. I am not a young girl anymore I just have to lose weight. So, we're gonna try..try again. I am positive it's time. I like WW, it's an easy plan. So why not?

Well, check in and let me know how you all are doing.
Jenjen and I are going to be in the 3fc chat room Monday night. Hope to talk to you all there.

LA

HI,

It is so easy as a single not to even bother to cook a meal. I might grab a yogurt or eat nothing at all. I know not eating is as bad as eating the wrong things so I am trying to change. I was married, weighed more on my wedding day than I did when I divorced him (almost 10 years ago), now I don't want a relationship - too scared I guess. I could use to lose 100 lbs. but I am taking it 10 lbs at a time.

I decided to get my life back, do my walking tapes, drink my water, and try to eat three healthy meals a day. Slowly I will add more as I get better at these three things. I am so tired of having no energy and being out of breath doing the simple things. DM

Angry Yippie...A Single Thread

I'm new here on the boards, etc. Wanted to find out how singles connect on the board so I did a search and found your thread.

Single and thirtysomething. Looking to hook up with some lifestyle buddies. My diet philosophy is not to diet. I'm trying to eat a normal balanced d**t, drink A LOT of water and walk. I've lost like 50 pounds and have kept it off, but I've been at this set-point weight for awhile. It's like the scale hates me . Anyways, I just decided that I have to kick up the exercise. Just started that...so the verdict is not out yet.

I really want to keep my weight off, so if I lose weight slow I really don't mind because I don't want to have to keep fighting this battle.

Thanks for this thread. I look forward to making some new friends.

I'm 34 (still single) and just realized today that I way the same as I did almost 11 years ago when I gave birth to my son...(wholly cow...literally). I have gained 45 lbs over the last two years. I have been in a relationship with a really great guy and I guess I let my guard down (not to mention the refrigerator door open). I am back on track now. I am trying to eat healthy and I joined Curves. I know it is going to take a while and there are no quick fixes for what I have done to my body. I am hoping that with all the support on this board I can actually make it.

Thanks for listening to my ramble and good luck to everyone here.

Default Me too....me too!

Hey all...

Thanks for starting this thread. It's hard, sometimes, being a single person in a "couple's and families" world. BUT...there are some great things about being single too!

I'm 33, single, had a couple of relationships that I thought were "IT", so I'm not so sure that my head and heart know what they are doing these days. Better to just take my time and be happy where I am in life. I believe that it will happen if it's suppose to happen. If not...well....I'll figure that out later

So...what "plans" are you all following? I'm doing my own thing right now. Cutting back on the processed foods and trying to make healthier choices. I have found that (believe it or not) what they say about sugar being addictive is true. I do not crave it as much as I used to. That's one GREAT thing that has happened in the past few weeks.

I try to keep the starches and empty carb calories to a minimum and have been snacking on things like pistachios, mixed nuts (in moderation), oranges, bananas, etc. I am eating more vegetables than I used to. I eat more protein and lean meats...haven't had pasta in three weeks.

So..there's my plan in a nutshell....it's not hard to follow because I eat when I'm hungry and don't obsess about portions.

So..what are you all doing?

Have a great day everyone!

Michelle
