Hi Welcome bjhans,
Glad you found us. There are a bunch of buddies just waiting to get to know you. So, tell us a little about yourself, jump into a thread and don't be shy :D we're all in this together.

I need a buddy too
Hi, I'm a repeat offender in the dieting department. I'm a 47 F and have over 190# to lose, although I'd settle for just 90#. I'm very sedentary and need someone to help me just get moving and count my calories. I'll be your buddy if you'd like. I live in DE and work from home.

since were both bj's lets try it. I'm down where I need to be according to goal chart, still a lot to go, but stuck at same wt for 3 days, despite eating according to plan. I love seeing my wts on the chart, just below the line. I weigh every day, even tho they say it isn't good. I think it keeps me on track. It's difficult having meals my husband eats, but right now, I told him, it is all about me. So far he is reasonably cooperative.

I'm 69 F Weigh 90 # more than when I married 23 years ago. We raise angus beef and have a freezer full. My husband is a meat and potatoes guy. Since he is more active, he only has a slight gut he could stand to loose. I try to get in about 6 hours a week of water volleyball, with other older folks. I'm really sticking with this since I joined about a month ago. Weigh every day, cause I like to see my wt chart, with me just below the goal line. I may need real help, if it creeps over the line, but so far, that line keeps me motivated. trying to eat healthy. Cut fats, keep protein, avoid empty calories, and cut some of the carbs, except for high fiber ones. Love vegetables, but have trouble getting enough fruit. Taking supplements for calcium, d, fiber, and omega 6, Sort of a modified South Beach, I guess.

Hi ladies, welcome to FitDay! In addition to the exercise thread Pam mentioned, another good one for companionship is the 7-Day-Motivational thread in the Women's Corner. But feel free to jump in anywhere; everyone's friendly and no one bites :).
