I would like a buddy who has a long way to go, like me, who would like to check in with each other, once in awhile and offer encouragement and support.

Never give up!

New member, really depressed that I regained weight I lost but finally after a month of feeling hopeless I am ready to start my “ program” to get back to my my feel good weight. Looking for online email buddy that I can check in with on a daily or at least few times a week basis. I am 48 year old female. Thank you for your support!

Advanced Search eventually appeared when I used Microsoft Edge (no Chrome or Firefox apparently!).

Thank you!

I wish for a buddy rather than a team as I get let down when I can't live up to what others are capable of. I am depressed. Starting over after regaining it.

If nothing ever changed,there'd be no butterflies

Hi Shelly,

I too am looking for a buddy to be accountable to if you are interested.

A little about me: I am 49, married with 3 grown children and 2 grandchildren. Learning how to eat healthy and exercise. I sometimes (ok most times) lack the motivation to get off my duff but I am trying to learn how to keep that motivation going. I live in Kelowna, BC.

Hi!

When I go to that page ( www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_home.asp ), the "Advanced Search" link there displays and works for me. Does that link display for you? If you click does anything happen?

Have you tried refreshing your browser or clearing your cache & cookies to see if that helps?

I'm trying to use the Buddy Finder feature that's on the Spark Pages section, but I can't find the Advanced Search...

That being said, I could really use a daily check-in buddy. Just someone to be accountable to, someone willing to encourage me to keep my promises to myself, to share with the successes, and pitfalls of weight loss, and I will offer the same.

A bit about me: 37 high school biology teacher, married, live in Ontario, have a cat and a bunny. Enjoy being outdoors when the weather cooperates.
