Hi everybody! I am 31yrs old, single, 165 pounds and have about 40 pounds to lose to get to my ideal weight!! I am quite small only 5'2" so this extra weight is really 'weighing' me down both physically and mentally. 2 years ago I had brought my weight down to 145 pounds and stopped there and now the weight has come back to 165 Sad but no sense in dewelling in the past i've got to get through this again and this time no stopping till i reach my ideal weight because i owe it to myself! I really hope i can find some nice friendly buddies here who can help me stay on track and I will also do my best to be there for them.
I want to start a system by which we send an email to each other everyday to report on our progress i.e. calories eaten, weight (if you want), exercise and most importantly motivation level and anything else you want to talk about. We can motivate each other and also help each other keep in track. What do you guys think?? i think 5 buddies with similar goals would be really great! Lets become the supergirls and kiss the weight goodbye!

I think that's an awesome idea, I like the sound of supergirls! Im 31 also and I have at least 60 or 80 pounds to drop. Ive only been on here a couple weeks but I love using the app on my droid phone, so easy! Right now i'm 201 lbs and 5'7". You would be my first buddy Smile JC63

Thank you ladies!! I guess we are all in the same boat here. OK so what do you think if we exchange daily progress with each other? it'll be like our club. I find that if its a small group its much easier to keep in track and support each other. How about we create a private group called Supergirls and we can post our daily progress there? Here's something i think might work:

Calories Goal: Calories Eaten:
Exercise Goal: Exercise Done:

Weight:

How was the day?:

That's it! We can keep it simple and if one of us is slipping, we can help them back up again.

I hope you guys will like the idea.

I too would love to join. I'm 30, following Atkins, have about 35 to lose (shooting for 135) and need some good buddies. I'm in Delaware & there aren't really any local people for me to connect with.

lotus2009, acmickey, Foodlady, Adrienne54, and sarahfelix I added you all as buddies so I can invite you to the group. I feel it is really important that we have about 10 active members that will post everyday or most days (everyone knows sometimes life can interupt that). Anyway, we have 7 members in the group, but there are only about 3 and recently 2 that post almost everyday. If you still want to be involved I'll invite you. We all need this support.
