Due to the many health problems I have,I am forced to make changes in my diet and exercise to lessen the problems. I need diet buddies who can support me and so I can support them through good and bad times. I am quite deaf too.

I would love male as well as female buddies from all over the world.

Hi Dan

I've sent you a buddy request. I've registered a while ago but have only recently committed to a weight loss program. Like you, I need support and encouragement. I have to lose more than half my body weight and it is so daunting.All I can say is; don't give up.

Hi Dan. I was in your shoes. Went from 325 to 213 and on my way to 190 using FatSecret. Carried that weight since the early 90s until this past year. Will be glad to share tips and strategies. Bill

glad your here. I am trying to lose about 50 pounds but having to take the Chemo drug has proved to be a big wall to me in my weight loss. Hope you fair better.

Hey my friend. You're in the exact right place to drop some weight - and it doesn't even have to be all that hard, as long as you dedicate yourself to it.

Trust me - it's ALL worth it!

I used to weight 360 lbs. I dropped to literally half my size, have had excess skin removed, and I am now at 165 lbs, with PLENTY of muscle to armwrestle the youngsters and a whole new lease on life.

Fatsecret has been my best friend through this entire process.

Feel free to add me as a buddy. Smile

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

If possible, spread out your calories so you are eating something every couple of hours, even if it's a few baby carrots or celery sticks.
