Hi i also would love to come on board and have some diet buddies. It seems like I am always on one diet or another. I too have clothes hanging on the treadmill and seem to be looking for that elusive motivation. I am turning 40 very soon and I think might be the motivator of all motivators. Look forward to hearing from fellow dieters or lifestyle changers

Hi Alorea
I think having someone to chat to on a regular basis is really helpful...this site appears to be fantastic and really supportive! I have just joined and I am desperate to finally succeed with shifting my unwanted weight. I too am a nurse, but I teach nursing now...so have a busy life. Now, I realise its about making time for me...as i'm always the last I consider!

I hope you do really well and look forward to chatting to you
best wishes
Katie

Hi Katie, welcome! If you are looking for buddies in the same boat, you (and anyone) are free to check the 7-day motivational thread in the Women's Forum section. We are a pretty active bunch and very chatty about fitness, diet, exercise, and our lives in general. It's a great place to get motivated to stay on track; hope to see you there.

Smile Diet Buddy Wanted

I posted under Atkins Diet but the moderator suggested that I repost here. I am glad that someone is looking at what is going on and is trying to help.

I am on the Modified Atkins Diet and am having trouble breaking 190; the holidays did not help. I am a senior male in good shape and work out and prefer a female but would appreciate encouragement and motivation from anyone. I am willing to reciprocate.

I hope, within the week, to be back down near 190, my minimum weight for the last year. I hope to reach 180 or even less in 3 to 4 months. I need to increase my exercise.

One problem has been maintaining the RDA for potassium intake. I have had a little exercise intolerance with severe leg cramps. Calf stretching, calcium and Benadryl before bedtime and Bilberry have helped. My doctor ordered me to diet but did not support it and interfered with getting a safe potassium supplement in the amount needed. I hated to change doctors but have a new one that is all that I have desired.

I would appreciate linking up with one or more caring people for mutual support, encouragement, help--whatever it takes to keep losing. I hope it will be fun and beneficial for both of us.

You can email at laughing_man_lee@yahoo.com if they have not "improved" it again and it still works.
