Is it too late for me to join the party? I need a buddy, too for a lot of the same reasons y'all already mentioned. I'm a newbie to Spark but do get to log on daily and am willing and able to have your back.
I'm a 41 year old wife/mom who works outside the home. I need to lose 80ish pounds as well (could actually lose more but I'm good with 80).
Feel free to "friend" me on Spark and I'll do the same.

I am looking for a buddy too. I am 30 years old,single,have about 70 lbs to lose.Try to stay as active on SP as possible. Just recently started my journey again (a month tomorrow) so I need all the support/accountability as possible. lol
If you don't mind having an old woman ( I'm 52) I'll be glad to buddy up. I also need a buddy. I'm more accountable to someone else than to myself. I need to lose at least 60 pounds...70 would be better and 80 would make in my healthy weight zone. I just want to quit shopping in the Plus Size section and quit making jokes about my big butt and the Junk in my Trunk. I do this when I see people checking out my butt...
"I'm more comfortable with the devil I know than the angel I don't". NOT ANYMORE!
I could use a buddy too. I have about 80-100 to lose. 80 may be a better number to keep off long term although I could use to lose the 100. I have been at this for just over 4 weeks now. Some days good some bad (trying to keep to a calorie limit per day) couple cheat days in there but back on the wagon the next day. Doing walks several times a week but nothing hardcore as the doctor thinks I may have a heel spur because I am having pain in the back of my heel and a sore bump, limits wearing closed in shoes and the amount and/ or what I do and how much. I am 45, two kids, and I am tired of feeling big and tired, I want to not worry about what I look like when I want to go for a swim, I want to wear something cute and sexy, not always feel like I have to be self conscious. I don,t wear shorts, I don,t do a lot of stuff I would like to do because I feel to big, or feel I shouldn,t. No one around me understands what I feel like or what I am going through, and what a difficult thing this is. I want to get fit and healthy for me and my kids and my hubby, who also does not understand, he always says I look great, but has never had a weight issue really. Would be great to touch base with people who know what we are are all going through and hold each others hands as we keep going.

Okay, so I have never done this before. So I am looking for someone to help in the everyday. I know that I work better if I work with someone my goals.
Here is a little bit of info about myself: -I am twenty-one -I need to lose more than one hundred pounds (In other words this will be a long process) -I am a college student -I would like a buddy that I can message or spark mail a lot
Feel free to post on here, my sparkpage, or over sparkmail. I look forward to hearing from people.
