Hey Molly I just rejoined Sparks today and I could use some buddy help also. I am 64 and I have posted a blog today to get me moving. I have quite a few health issues, but I am starting back slowly, not in a rush this time. Started by just cutting m sugar in my tea/coffee by 1/4 tsp today and maybe tomorrow. Doing the same with exercise, I have always had a problem with going too fast and getting hurt, so this time I started doing 5 minutes on the bike and when I would walk by again another 5, so day 1 was 10 minutes, today I managed 14 on the bike and a stroll for 5 minutes. This way I expect I should not get injured or overwhelmed as I did in the past, and the sugar reduction a bit slower as well so I don't fall back into super sweet mode. I was your age when I fell and it's been a long road to where I am now, but sure hope we can help each other.

I've got this!

I am 57 years old and would like a buddy to lose weight with. I am hoping that person needs to lose a lot like me. I am new to Spark People and am not sure of all it has to offer, but I am learning. I think it would be helpful to have someone I can talk with to keep me on track and motivated. I would try to do the same for you. I would have responded to some of these messages on here, but you do not have as much to lose and I feel I may not be a good fit for you. If you think it will work, send me a message. Thanks, Alley

Hello and Good Afternoon, I am in search of a diet buddy. If you are interested, let me know. I have lost 50 pounds and still have 60 more to go. I have purchased the "simply fit board" and it should be delivered any day now.

Yes, the story of my dieting life, lol! It has been hard this week, tracking my food, reaching my calorie limit, then deciding to snack on chocolate and bread. Hmm am I craving carbs? oh ya! Anyhow, taking it day by day, at least I am consistently keeping up with exercise 3-4 times weekly.......

Yes.. It's hard to stay on track.. Started a new food plan and wondering how long I can last on it.. As long as I drink my water and eat every few hours I think I'm fine. My biggest downfall was candy or fast food here and there and even pop for the sugar. Now, that I'm planning what to eat and when, I don't have those crazy cravings.. So this is great!! I did exercise some BUT really more focused on the food part now.

Hello,
Majellaf I totally relate to your post. I just turned 50 in Oct 2016, lack willpower with food, need a kick in the butt sometimes (with workouts) and someone to chat with when my overeating obsession takes over. I am looking for online chat support (check ins) to help stay on track and talk with people that really can relate. I am happy to connect with you or anyone else that is nterested?

Hi, new to this tonight and I have to admit my dieting willpower has never been good on my own. I need a kick-my-butt buddy to chat and encourage and generally walk alongside me on this difficult journey.
I teach in Penrith, Cumbria part-time and would love to find a local buddy but just as happy to buddy up online. Hit 50 last year and need to find my fitness now and establish a healthier weight.
Oops I should have said I need to lose 48lbs according to this site but would be happy getting anywhere close.

I'm finding it hard to stick to a diet and would love to have an email buddy to go back and forth with, for those times when I just can't stick to the calorie count. If you'd like to do that, too, that would be wonderful.
