As Coach Merle mentioned, I would encourage you to remove your personal contact information from this thread as well. You maybe don't have anything to hide but the Internet is full of shady people.

Hi Ken,

As I mentioned in another post, I recommend that you edit this to take your personal email and phone number out of this post. I just don't think it's a good idea to share your personal info so publicly. You can ask a potential partner to send you SparkMail and then exchange contact details there.

Best wishes! You can do it!

My name is Ken. I was a member before and had lost a lot of weight but have gained it back.

I have been eating clean for a few days and want to get back to the gym, but am looking for an accountability partner to help. I have tried to lose and get back to the motivated person that I was (lost 100lbs in 8 months without starving - only ate very clean .. frequent excersise), but every time I tried I fell off. A lot of it had to do with a huge emotional burden that is off of my shoulders now. I feel that I can do it now. The only limitation is that I have a very bad back. It hurts so bad that I can walk places and such, but hurts all of the time. I have been diagnosed with advanced degenerative disk disease in the lower back. No excuse .. Still can try to do laps in the pool and light lifting. I just think that I need help - a partner- for us to both lose weight, eat clean, hit the gym. Whatever matches. Or just somebody to keep me going .

Please advise .. email is . My phone number (or text) is 707-951-7542

Kind Regards

starting weight 435 (7/19/12)

goal #2 (by 12/31/13) = 225 - optimal nutrtion and in great shape!
