Default Looking For A Buddy...

Hi everyone, I'm pretty new here and was wondering if there was anyone who wanted to be weight loss buddies, keeping in touch regularly by e-mail and discussing our various successes and pitfalls and challenging each other to keep with it!

I am, however, going to be quite pernickety about who I'd like to buddy up with, entirely for my own benefit so I get someone who is in a similar situation to myself.

So if you are:
- in your twenties-ish (I am 20)
- around 200-220lbs
- wanting to get down to 110-130lbs
- around 5'3" - 5'6"
- (less important) if you're from the UK

I'd love to get in touch! PM me!

xxx

I want a buddy too!!! I've been on this site quite a while...and really have never found anyone to really talk to for support and stuff. There was one girl... it was weird. My age and everything, from the same town even...but then she stopped emailing me before we ever even got together.

I am 23
203lbs
5'4 and a quarter...even though usually I claim 5'5
my goal weight is 136 (for now)
I also work overnights---it'd be nice to find someone who also does this. I need help and advice big time. It's hard

haha I feel like i'm on a matchmaking site while writing this post. Sorta silly

But really...I need some support!

Greetings!

I’ve been on here for some time now but don’t really post that much. I tried the buddy thing on here before only to have them drift away before ever really getting started. I would love to have some online support since I really don’t have any in my day to day life. I’ve been slowly but surely gaining weight and I need to put a stop to it soon!

I’m 23.
I was 199 at one time but am currently 163.
My goal was 130. The lowest I got was 147 but I fell off the wagon and never really got back on. Thankfully I haven’t gained all of it back!
I’m around 5’3 – 5’4.
From NJ, USA.
I work nights from 5 – 1 am. And yes it is hard. Especially when there is nothing to do but eat.

Maybe we could form a little email group between the three of us? Hopefully I will be talking to you guys later.

I had a blog before. They are really good if you love to write. I found me and writing don't get along so well . It is nice though to have things recorded so you can look back and say things like "oh I've stalled before and this is how long it took me to get through it. No need to panic." By all means give it a try.

So how would you guys like to work this? Get to know each other on here before emailing? PM email addresses to each other and start an emailing circle of sorts? Questions, comments, I'm open to them. What ideas do you guys have?

Hey everyone! Sorry I sorta fell off the planet the past few days. All these nights working in a row are killing me...plus I've been making sure to go to the gym!

I did take Sunday morning off from going to the gym, just because I knew I had to work tonight (sunday) from 9pm to 7am, then go to the gym until about 8:30, and then work at Lane Bryant from 9:30 to 2. I was tired so I figured getting a little extra sleep and taking a small break was ok. I also allowed myself a mini "cheat night" ...I had been craving sweets all week, and have done pretty good resisting them. Anyway, because I work nights I start my calorie counting at midnight every day. So today when I got to work at 9pm, I thought what the heck... the last 3 hours of sunday, I think i'll have a few sweets. People had brought in cookies and brownies. So yea...I cheated a little. I don't think it was a huge problem though. Typically I eat around 1200-1500 cals a day... my little binge probably put me at around 2000 cals for the day. Still not a huge loss since my RMR is about 1700.

Now I've had my fill... and I think I'll be ok for the next few days

9 pm to 7 am, then gym at 8:30 followed by work again at 9:30 to 2!
Wow. I give you credit. I come home from the 5 pm to 1am shift and just want to die. I couldn't imagine working out and then heading back to work. You definately deserve that break.

Default K Me too

K. I am a bit older than you guys. I am 34. Married and mother of 4. Work full time at night and go to school during the day. I would like a buddy too if I am not too old. I am currently at 210, was at 247 at my highest and want to be 150 for now. I reserve the right to change that number depending on how I feel the closer I get there. I have been doing very well until Hurricane Ike hit...now I seem to be on a diet of chips and other junk food since that is all you can get in the stores right now...I have one more day to blow it and tomorrow I am going to behave again.

Default I can't PM yet

Buddies sound good to me....but I can't PM yet, I am too new and the forum wont let me PM or answer PMs. After a few more posts I should be able to send and answer PMs. Today I am having a hard day too. It would be nice to have someone to talk to...
