Default friendly self conscious girl looks for a diet buddy!

Hi, I'm a 23year old girl and I really need a diet buddy... all my weight loss efforts have been useless, and I think it might be because I don't have anyone to share my successes with and keep me motivated.

As a matter of fact, my friends make fun of me for filing each time. they don't get how bad I feel about myself, nor do they realize this weight is the reason I have never ever been in a serious relationship with anyone.

I would like to lose 30lbs, a feat with I have never been able to accomplish.

I don't have as much to lose as some people on this site, but I would be glad to exchange with dieters of any size, any age and any gender.

I don't bite and I always answer!

Welcome my dear!
You sound like so many of our members. At the beginning that is. Check out and check into the women's corner. We are all here for each other. And I am sure you will find a bunch of new buddies just waiting to get to know you.

I agree with both Pam and April....the Women's Corner is where it's at! I personally like the 7-Day Motivational Thread, it's stickied at the top of the forum and a new one is started each week. The goals you make are your own. It's a good place to set your goals in writing, and we try to hold each other accountable for them. And don't mind Mike, the mod, he's just another one of the girls.

There is all kinds of advice and support around here, you just have to look and ask for it. We've all been where you are now, just starting out. I can honestly say I don't know where I would be had I not found FitDay. Well, I take that back, I'd probably still be 255 lbs, if not more!!! It has truely changed my life. Come see us over there!!!
