I live with my boyfriend and I'm also unemployed thanks to the economy
I really want to do this to not only get back in shape but also so I can feel better about myself and fit back in my wicked small dresses that I can't zip up anymore.
Part of the reason why I ended up like this is because I LOVE chocolate, bread...everything that is unhealthy to eat. My boyfriend is also extremely obese...very big guy...think huge football player... and he easily eats 4x's what I eat in a single meal which somehow got me eating more than what I should have been eating in the first place.
Anyways, I would love to be your buddy! We need to get our butts back in shape!!!!
Luckygirl, I loved your post! I agree so much!! I too am a recovering "chocolate and bread addict" haha. When I first started this, I seriously mourned over the idea of little to no chocolate or bread. I always used to joke that my dream vacation was a trip to Charlie's Chocolate Factory.
Olivia, I like the buddy idea. I think the more buddies, the better! We need all the support we can get!
Good luck girls, I know we can do it!
