It seems like someones New Years Resolution is to lose weight. I know one of mine is!

How about a diet buddy?

A diet buddy can help keep you motivated and on track with your weight-loss goals. Diet buddies provide encouragement and support during difficult times while you diet. They will have a better understanding of what you're going through rather than friends who are not currently dieting. Finding a diet buddy during the course of your day-to-day life can be challenging.

I know you need to look for a diet buddy with similar goals for weight loss. If you and your diet buddy have vastly different weight loss goals, if will be more difficult to understand and encourage each other. It can't be done cause swap bot signs the partners.

BUT....Lets give this a try and maybe we can find that buddy we need.

Now anyone who wants a buddy close to their weight loss and don't get rated, you can private message me your name, weight lose goal and your address and I can match people up that way

You will have 3 partners. It may seem like alot of partners but remember the only requirment is to write an introduction letter. It gives a better chance to find that right buddy for you.

You will E~Mail your partner and introduce yourself. {tell about life, hobbies, job, reason for your weight loss, your inspirations, exercise program.....stuff like that}

Don't forget to rate when you recieve your email from your partner

Newbies MUST have a well filled out profile!!

How do we rate....what is rating based on?

I like this idea. If you matched us up, we could make our commitment more secure (and be rated) by making it a private swap. I, too would like to lose 50 pds. But I'd be happy to lose 30 to begin with!

@edgettorn you will rate one your partner sends the email to introduce herself

@user6937 thats a great idea! I'm hoping to get some takers!!

Cool, I was just thinking about starting a similar swap myself, and there yours was :-)

Since this is e-mail how about more than one partner? That would give us a better chance of finding someone with similar goals ourselves saving you the match-up.

I need to loose 60 lbs.

tamtamlee 01/18/2013 #

@ Morgaine I was thinking about that but I wasn't sure! I will change it to 3.

user6937 01/18/2013 #

I like that idea, too @morgaine - it does save @tamtamlee work!

Morgaine 01/18/2013 #

Thanks for doing that. I hope this does not mean loss of participants. I know some don't like multiple partners. But the swap only requires an introduction to be complete, so it's not like we absolutely need to keep in touch with everyone after if we don't feel a "match". I know it would be to many people for me in the long run.

I need to loose somewhere in between 60 and 70 lbs (30-35 kgs).

I just had twin boys 9 months ago and need to lose about 25 lbs. So matching me with someone who maybe also has difficulty fitting in workout time would be nice.

I am a newbie here, but I am 100% committed to the swap & am currently in the process of attempting to lose weight myself! :)

I am looking to lose approximately 10lbs, but I have already lost 87lbs over the past 3 years (with barely any exercise), so I would be more than happy to share my experiences/tips/support with anyone that would be interested! ^_^ x

I had a baby girl almost 8 months ago and need to lose 50 lbs. I need to at least lose the 35 lbs I gained during pregnancy, but to be at an ideal weight, I need to lose an additional 15.

I had a baby almost 10 months ago and am facing a 50 pound weight loss journey.
