Diet Buddy Wanted :)
WantsToBeSkinny posted:
Hi everyone!

I'm not really sure how to start this, but as you can see from the title, I'm looking for a diet buddy!

I'm a college student who's having difficulties managing my ever-so-fluctuating weight (especially with the terrible dining hall options). Ideally, I'd like to lose ~40 lbs by the end of this year. Unfortunately, I'm easily thrown off track by stress and excuses haha So I'd really like to find someone that wouldn't mind emailing with me so that we can motivate each other, bother each other to go exercise, exchange advice, and all that good stuff! Please let me know if you'd be interested!

Happy Losing!!

Hi WantsToBeSkinny

Welcome, and we would all like to be your buddy. The people on this board are in a similar position - overweight, desperately wanting to lose weight, aware of temptation. Therefore they understand what you're going through.

Just post regularly and share the details with us. We can try and encourage you all along, while sharing our progress, frustrations etc. with you.

Good luck.

My e-mail address is if you'd like to reply directly to that and we can talk a little bit more? Let me know!
