Hey guys, I am a 30 year old mom of 3 and I am serious about changing my lifestyle. I work out 5 times per week. I am following Atkins, and the weight is coming off. I just need some more buddies. I have a few on here but I guess they aren't online much anymore. Looking to add to my support group. I have 100 pounds left to lose. I need someone to laugh with, cry with, and kick each other's butts when we get off track. Thanks!

I'd like to be your buddy! I think that's what I'm lacking on here. A little support group/buddies to help motivate each other. =]

I would like to be your buddy. I'm a 48 year old mother of three and grandmother of 6. I realize that Atkins is a lifestyle but I need buddies who understand that. Have a fantastic day!

I'd like some buddies! Im turning 38 on Sunday, single mom of 5, attempting to do Atkins again. Its not the diet thats failing, its me. I find the diet to be one of the easier for me to stick to, so I dont know why Im off again. I have a million excuses.. sick babies, tired, vascular surgery, 100 degree heat and no AC.. and I cringe as I listen to the voice in my head saying them.. I guess I need some real support. Im planning a dinner out on Sunday for my birthday and thats it.. Im back on this thing til I reach my goal!

Wow, a single Mum of 5- you're certainly brave, I couldn't cope with all of that. I'm here at the end of this if ever you want to have a rant about something! Enjoy your dinner out on Sunday, forget about the diet, weigh yourself 1st thing Monday before your little treasures get up and then start. Good luck.

Hi, I am an almost 50 yr old single mother of 3. They are grown up now and have kids of their own, but I will never forget the struggle. I want to lose 105 lbs but 65 would be great, and I would love to be your buddy!

Sorry guys I didnt get to get on the past few days. Payroll week at work is HORRIBLE for me. I would LOVE to have you as buddies!!! If you havent sent me a request I'm sending you one. I think a support group is so important!! I thinks it's probably even more important for diets like Atkins. The outside world sometimes has such a negative view of what we are doing. I can't tell you how many people tell me...

Oh you're doing Atkins? Isn't that were you just eat meat? That is so bad for you!!!

LOL - Well we know better. I know for a fact that I eat WAY more green veggies now than I used to. A typical meal for me before was Steak, Baked Potato and corn. Now it's Steak and steamed broccoli and cauliflower.

Thanks everyone!!!

Add me! I need a support group as well.

P.S. I'm not on Atkins, but my ultimate goal is to lose 75 - 80 lbs.

hey Amanda - welcome back!!! I sent everyone a buddy request (I think)...sure hope I didn't miss someone...but if I did, pls feel free to send me one and I will accept right away. (don't know how...just click on the person's picture, which will take you to their 'profile page'. Under their picture there, click on 'add as a buddy', and then the other person will get notified. Look at the top Left where it says 'MYFATSECRET', and click that tab. Then scroll down a little and look on the right column going down the page and you will see notifications if someone has requested you as a buddy...you can click accept.)

Easy once you've done it! Wink

Just HOLLAR if you need some help or encouragement...lots of good folks on this site to help out!

Much Love.
Live, Love, Laugh ...make each day memorable and enjoy the journey.
