Default New and need WL buddy

I just started on Fitday a few days ago and started low cal eating again after a short stint with Weight Watchers and then a time of life upheaval. I have made a commitment to deal with my stress levels so that won't happen again. I liked WW but found it hard to constantly figure out points and I have found Fitday to be great for me.
I am looking for a few weight loss buddies because I am the only one in my household doing it so I am pretty much on my own but my family is not opposed to my efforts. I am a 55 year old woman who has 55 pounds to lose. When I get there I am going to evaluate how I look and feel. I have some health issues that is making exercising, even walking a real challenge and also cannot eat fresh fruits and veggies right now but have to eat them cooked. Aside from these challenges though I am determined to reach my goal. You guys are all very inspiring!

Hi Rose,
I just started FD again too.. I am restricted by ailments concerning exercise also, but I have a 4wheel rollator and I can at least walk using it. It has a seat too in case I need to get off my achy breaky bones. lol

you need to eat cooked food, I am supposed to eat as much raw food as possible, would that keep us from being buddies?

I went on my own personalized diet, I am tired of trying to use other peoples diet programs...why should I, when I can build my own you know? My likes, my dislikes, my personal needs..etc..
I also use the worlds healthiest foods website, what a wonderful addition to fitday, like wow...
using both, I can get my daily nutrition with remarkably smaller calorie intake without feeling hungry all the time.. or having that urge to nibble when i am not even hungry.

Best of "time" to you.
