I'm looking to take off 45 to 55 pounds, and keep them off. I'm a pretty motivated person, but I know that having buddies will keep me accountable for my actions, and keep me moving forward when my inner chunky-monkey wants a cookie or cake ball.
So wanna be buddies with me? Be warned I will read your journal, exercise diary, and food diary... I'll hold you accountable, like I want you to do for me. Wink

***UPDATE***
Because there was some interest in the keep me motivated theme, I created a group called Hold Me Accountable. Please join!

*Start exercising and eating well - CHECK
*Lose 50 pounds, *Run a marathon (OMG, really?), *Look darn good in a swimsuit, *Have to get a new wardrobe because nothing fits anymore, *NOT have my seatbelt Clicker thing dig into my hips while I drive!, *Be proud of my Progress!

Yay Yay Yay!
As for adding buddies, go to their member profile and on the left, under their picture, is a link that says "Add to my buddies".
Apparently, it only lets you do one at a time. I buddy requested Skinny Penni and it will not let me do yours, lightningchik.

Good Morning, I sent Buddy request to the four of you above me. I've been on here for a while. But have been away off on over the holidays, and was slacking on what I know works. So back now and serious to get off at least another 30 lbs before June hopefully more like 45.

Ok. Ya'll sound like a fun group. I need some motivated buddies to hold me accountable too. I created a challenge called shed it or dread it. Looking forward to my next goal of 12 pounds in 6 weeks. HELP Please.

Adkins bars and drinks are low in carbs and tasty. I also think the yogurt fruit idea is good. I make my own granola. Easy and less sugar.
