I could always use some encouragement. .. I have 6 kids and am always on the go between scouting events, sports and general home upkeep. Sometimes I forget to check in but having someone message reminds me to come back. I have found that if I don't check in for a week, it's hard coming back. (Hence the 4 year gap)

Hi everyone!! I'm 25 yrs old, a first time stay at home mom, to a beautiful baby girl who is almost 6 months! I decided I'm overdue to get into shape.

Hi everyone. I have three great kids 11 yr old girl and 5 yr old twins boy & girl. I live in Mobile, AL and would love a walking buddy or gym buddy. I just signed up so I would like someone to go with. I am all about my kids and family and doing what I can to keep them happy and healthy but I normally forget that I am part of that family and need to take care of myself as well.

Two of us started a thread as sort of a "Buddy Group" . Feel free to join in. Just follow the link below.
I'm definitely into the buddy system! It's so much easier when there's someone there to encourage and to encourage you. I love to cook so I'm really interrested in taking what I amd my family love to eat and making it healthy but GOOD! I hate bad food. ug. Life is too short to waste calories on stuff that doesn't make you smile :) As far as exercise, I love basic yoga (I'm not into all the meditation and philosophy, but the strength and flexibility workout is GREAT!) and I love to dance. I do hip hop (badly), zumba and bellydance. I like basic aerobics too, but they can get stale. I'm a hippie girl...got to move to that music :) feel free to hit me up any time for a chat, encouragement or swatever ;)

33 yo mom, 3 kids - ages 6, 4 and 2, looking to lose weight with a diet and fitness routine that is kid-friendly.
Looking to connect with other parents who understand the challenges of losing weight with little ones (and their finicky palates) in tow. We can start with sparkmail, blog follow/comments and who knows - progress to texts, phone calls and depending on location - maybe buddy up for exercise IRL.

Hi. I'd love some buddies to help keep me motivated. I'm a 37yr old SAHM of 2 girls, almost 2 and 5 and all my friends are out of town, mostly out of state! SP and FB are how I stay connected to my friends and I'd love some more. Sometime for a shoulder to cry on, an ear to vent to and as I mentioned, having a cheerleader is always nice! I'd do the same!

I'll be your buddy. I ready your blurb about yourself on your page and wow - sounds a lot like me. My hubby also works a crazy schedule - 3-2-2 rotation with all 12 hour days. I was also recently laid off, so I am now a SAHM of a almost 3 year-old and a 5 month-old. I don't get a lot of support from my husband, so it's all on me. I am the biggest I have ever been at this point even though I am about 10 lbs lighter than I was when I got pregnant last year.

I'm a 25 year old SAHM to a 6 year old daughter. I am married to a wonderful man who is 38! I have lost almost 40 pounds since November 09...but it seems to have slowed to a snail's pace...very discouraging... but i'm still chuggin along...it would be nice to have a buddy who is also home going through the same slow moving weight loss so we can complain about it and encourage eachother to stick to it..lol
I have a dorky goofy since of humor (think spongebob)...and take life with a grain of salt...My daughter is very smart...and quite the handful....but I love her and all her sillyness! I have enjoyed my time with her at home and am greatful to be able to stay at home for the last 3 years.
Anyway...if you want a buddy who is a little crazy, in a good way...i'm your girl! lol Have an awesome weekend everyone!

I have been on lots of diets for most of my life and I always seem to give up. 3 weeks ago I started walking a mile a day and plan to keep that up. My husband is also trying to lose weight however the exercising comes easy to him besides walking he rides bike at least 3 miles a day.I cant ride bike because I get dizzy from my high blood pressure which im hoping to get under control. Anyway sorry for going on so long just wanted to say if u need a buddy im here. Good luck to you and your husband.

Hi! i am a 37 year old stay at home mom of 3 kids. Right now my goal is to loose 60 pounds but I can loose more than that. My husband is a trucker and very seldom at home. I have discovered a couple months ago that I was suffering with depression. I already have lost motivation once already since joining Sparkpeople but I think some of it was due to the depression. Need a buddy to help keep me motivated. I need to loose this weight as much as I can. Talk to you soon.

I just dropped a jean size and a shirt size this week! awesome!!! but even though, i would love to have someone to keep me accountable. and i would love to help others out also. weight loss is never succeeded alone, it takes a support system to keep you going when you are down. i do have a support system, but sometimes its easier when those ppl arent your family. :)
anyways, comment on my page or send me a message!

Hello everyone! I am a 33 yr. old mother(34 in Feb.), I have 5 children ages 16, 15, 10, 3, & 10 months. I am still breastfeeding for another couple months (I hope I can wean her easily then but it is making me nervous!) and it is high time I get in gear & lose my baby weight I have carried around for far too many years. I am done having children now, so I want a body I can live with & be happy with for the rest of my life. No more pregnancies to make me gain again. Anyway, I love SP, but I get a bit confused on all these boards. I find someone I have seen before a time or two, then they post elsewhere or on a different forum & we lose touch, & I am just wanting to find someone I can keep in contact with for accountability & encouragement, & also provide the same! Will keep checking back under this forum.

Hi Michelle, I would love to be your buddie here. That would hold me more accountable for things I do. I just find it easier to have someone to turn to for help and guidence and just to be able talk about the same thing and see if they have any ideas. So how old are your kids.
