Looking for a buddy - anyone else need one too?
Quote · 885 days ago · 0 people like this ·

I am on day 14 of the program and I am looking for a buddy as directed.  I am 53, married, no children and I live in northwest Tennessee in the Central Time Zone.  I love cats and dogs, have a few of each.  Love to read but don't have time for it anymore and I waste too much time on Facebook.  I also have a hard time finding the time to workout - but am hoping I can more easily fit in the 12 minutes workouts.  My husband has diabetes and also needs to lose weight but with his neuropathy he doesn't like to walk much - so I can't get him to be a walking buddy.  I would love to have someone that I can chat with by text, email or on here with like interests so we can support each other through this process.  Hoping this is the last weight loss plan I will ever need as it is a lifestyle change, not a diet!

Hi GypsyGirl2014 - please check out my profile and see if I would be someone you would like to share info and the ups and downs with during your intro to Food Lovers.  I have only been in the program since late in April.  I have had so much support from everyone and Jackie.  I got to know a lot of ladies thru the Tuesday night chat.  You really want to think about joining us on Tuesday nights at 8:30 p.m. eastern time.   Go the the Blog and post what you posted on the Home Page and you will probably get more of a response.  The blogs also help you to get to know everyone too.  Good Luck.  I would be happy to be your buddy  - read my profile and let me know.

Hang in there.

Hey Sandy!  Glad you are reaching out in the community.  Let me know how I can help.  I've been following the FL lifestyle since 2009 and I love it!  It's my norm.  As far as the feeling full and not wanting to eat...maybe adjust the times you are drinking the water.  Focus on drinking most of it after your meal and cut back as it gets closer to meal time. You didn't say when and how much you are drinking so that's just a thought.  

I'm always in the chat room on Tuesday evenings at 7:30 central...hope you can join me next week!
