I welcomed you when you first came to the Slowest Loser. Where have you been? Are you just a " reader" of our posts? There are a lot of members that only do that. I wanted to wish you a happy holiday.

I head up the Tips & Resources forum as a co-leader on the Slowest Losers team and heard you are looking for a buddy.
I am here to volunteer for the honor and would like to know in which areas you need support, accountablity, and motivation.
Please let me know if you are up to the challenge of having me as your buddy since I stay pretty active myself in general and am busy raising a 10 year old and maintaining my home while volunteering at my son's school in the hopes of finding a paying position there. Oh, I recently FINALLY got my driver's license for the 1st time EVER back in October and its been a big obstacle in my life due to my fear of driving. Thanks to SparkPeople and the community support I received I used those small steps forward approach and am now actively driving on the road with not much anxiety or fear!
I have battled with anorexia, epilepsy, and extreme weight gain for my body frame. I am in this healthy lifestyle journey to insure I am the healthiest most active role model I can be for my son and myself. By being healthy I not only lessen my risk to hereditary health issues (both sides have many) but I also am prepared to be a strong person to help others who may need my help be it my parents, family, or friends.

I have seen you have much you deal with and yet you move ahead with a great outlook, I sure would not being your buddy.
Let me know.

Hi, welcome to SparkPeople and the Slowest Losers team. Thanks for your SparkMail. I need to go somewhere but I'll respond to it soon. I do not see the Need a Buddy button on the upper right side of the page, with all the other buttons. I think you should be able to find a Buddy on our team, without even putting the button on your page. I do not use the button on my page and I have two buddies. Please let me know if you get this comment. I'm not sure that technologies are letting you see, the comments or not. My comment is the first one on your page though.
HUGS to you. I'm so glad that you're able to be on SparkPeople.
Have a great Saturday.
