I'm not sure how to do the buddies thing, i just joined today! First off, way to go, taking control of your life. are you just changing how you eat or also working out? I find that when i work out, i'm so much more likely to stick to it because I don't want to undo all that hard work!
a little about me.
i have been using the app on my phone for a couple months. i lost 6 pounds and kept it off.
i'm down another 2, but you know you can't really count it til you weigh in 3 times in a row and it's the same number!
i lost a ton of weight in college and slowly over the past 11 years it's crept back up. I was nearing 160 and had to take action...my goal is 147 so i can fit in all the suits in my closet!
I'll encourage you if you encourage me! i need someone to hold me accountable so i don't go face first into a cake (yah, that might have happened last weekend)

I just joined this site a couple of weeks ago. I am also looking for some buddies. Initially started at 176 and got down to 143, using a diet that I found in Glamour magazine. Somehow I lost all motivation for anything and have gained weight and am back up to 165. Currently lost about 4 lbs, so I'm working on getting to 135.

Mehardies- i have been watching what i eat, as well as using my elliptical machine or swimming. i guess when i lost a little weight i got too confident thinking i could eat whatever i wanted! i almost peed myself when you said about weighing 3 times!! i do that too (because the scale could be wrong depending on how i stand on it)! i don't like cake, but a huge bowl of pasta gets me every time. glad someone saved you last weekend! thanks for buddying up!

Welcome back! I'm fairly new, been here about 2 months, and am looking for buddies too. I'll try to see if I can "friend" you all. *crosses fingers that I figure it out* lol

Me too! Joined again today after gaining back 8 lbs since April. My husband and I eat together and enable each other, so any encouragement from those of you in a relationship like this would be greatly appreciated!
