Smile Mom of 4 REALLY need's a diet buddy!

Hi, :-)
My name is Lisa and I really, really need a diet buddy!! I am just about 3 weeks into this so called diet and have already lost 18 pounds. I think it would be so much better to have someone to write back and forth to who understands just what we are going through....I have 4 kid's and a husband who have NO clue...plus, all of my friend's are thin! It is really depressing to think about it but I am 243 pounds and have just about 100 to go! I am taking it one step at a time and am determined not to look that far ahead. If you want to be dedicated email buddy, please (!) write!!

Hi Lisa!
I'd be happy to be a buddy. I've made two new friends myself on this site and I think this is place is one the best things I've some across on the net in a long time. I'll be honest and say that I'm looking for buds who are serious and won't give up. I've been on a weight loss adventure for 4 years now to even get to the weight I'm at...so I am a buddy that realizes it's not just a temporary thing. It's a life change. I used to weigh 218. I could have lost it a lot faster than I did but I don't know that I was dedicated at the time to do it that fast. Anyhow, a little about me and my goals...I believe in watching what goes in - but I dont' believe in the fad diets. I really believe that to get it off and keep it off takes the two keys of watching the food and excercising. I am upbeat and fun. I'm a mother of 1 (4 yr old). Married for 7 years. Looking for friends on the same journey. Just post a reply if you think being buddies would work for you

Hello Lisa, Amanda and Christine (hope I got everyone's name right)

My name is also Amanda (but am also known as Mandy) and I am a mother of 3. I have a 3 year old, a 2 year old and a 5 month old. I have about 65lbs to lose. I am still breastfeeding so am not a really strick diet. I am just trying to cut back on a few unneeded calories and trying to exercise more. I would love to email each of you and hopefully we can all help each other through this journey. Hope to hear from you all soon.

Amanda

Hi Lisa, Amada, Mandy, Christine, and Jessica (hope I have everyone)

My nickname is Sean and I am looking for a buddy as well. I am a mother of two and I am losing weight by watching what I eat and exercise. I would love to have someone to talk to about this.

Hi Amanda (thinner me)!
Thanks for answering my plea!! This does seem like a great board-I come here a lot and read the posts when I need a little motivation! I too am looking for only serious people to email back and forth to. So many buddies in the past have "given up", I can tell you I am very serious about this life long journey I am taking! I have been such a yoyo dieter all of my life, I am finally ready to take control. This is the heaviest I've ever been and am not happy with myself at all. If you would like to be bud's, just post back here or leave me a PM. Hope to hear from you soon! Lisa

Hi Christine, Mandy and Sean!
It was great to hear from all of you! We certainly sound like we are all committed and hopefully we can be on this journey together. Christine, I must say I think I have to go back to 1st grade math...I haven't lost 18 pounds...silly me! To this day I have lost 11.5!! Duh!! Sean and Mandy, you sound like me. I am losing this weight by eating right and exercising...although I really hate it sometimes! I think that we could all be great friend's together and help each other.
You can either post here, PM me, or email me:[email protected]

Hope to hear from all of you soon!!
Lisa

I am really liking this post as well...Don't worry Lisa, eleven in a half pounds is still great! My email is [email protected] I will add all of you to my addressbook for email.

Today wasn't a great day food-wise. hubby brought home Dunkin Donuts, I walke dby the box several times before I caved in. But All of us went on a long bike ride today...That has to count for something! But I am back on, and determined as ever!
