I am following The Flexitarian Diet with my husband. I am the one who has to manage the meal planning, shopping, and general management. He is doing great working out and losing weight. I stick with it for about 2 weeks and lose about 5 lbs and then some stresser comes up (illness, family drama, toddler challenges, travel, etc.) and then I don't maintain during the stressor and have a hard time getting back to it when the stress passes. It is like a vicious cycle. I'd love to find someone to talk to through the ups and downs. My husband is a great listener but I just need something different. I am 38, need to lose 60-70lbs. I workout at a gym with both weights and either water running or swimming. The goal is to eat 1500-2000 calories per day. When I follow this plan it works even with my significan thyroid disease and arthritis. Sometimes if feels like I have it all worked out on what to do, I just need to do it and keep doing it.

Hi! I follow the Ornish diet, but I don't have heart disease and so I can still eat meat every now and then. It sounds a lot like being a flexitarian.

I have lost 40 pounds in the past five months and you can count me among your buddies. I will send you a buddy request! Onward and downward!

Looking for someone with similar statistics :)
You may be right! And, she looks absolutely great. My worry is that she wants to go down to 93 lbs. That is a sure sign that there is something wrong.

Looking for weight loss partners!
Sorry I'm not the right age but if someone is looking for a diet buddy that's older let me know! And I hope you find the just the right buddy for you.
