Newbie looking for motivational buddies!


I'm Holly, 22, a carer from Brighton. I have been using this site for 2 weeks now and just getting into the swing of it! Would love some friends on my feed to encourage and to encourage me and also to get some hints and tips from as I'm not very good at motivating myself or eating healthily tbh.

I have about 2 stone to loose, ideally within the year (as in 12 months time not by December lol)

Hope to hear from someone!!! lol

    Hey you! ^_^ I'm looking for buddies as well and I'm also 22, like you I'm not great at anything like that either! However I can help you the best I can by being there, making suggestions from what I know and I'd love to hear yours. Funny how people can never take their own advice but we love it from others.

    Already my first day here and I'm looking around, posting and going health crazy. Anyways, hope to chat soon and help you out. Don't leave the site! FIRST TIP hahaha, keep with this and up with all of us that chat and help you. <3

    Hey Holly
    I'm also looking for buddies for help with motivation and diet and exercise help. I actually started working light jogging and watching what I eat as of july 2011 and once I reached my weight goal I decided to try weightlifting. I really love weight lifting and cardio and preparing healthy meal for me and my family. I have 2 kids boy and girl and I am married.

    Just started today - feeling nervous, was recommended by a friend and I was gobsmacked when I entered in my food diary of exactly what I was eating... just waiting for my new exercise bike and hopefully I can start burning this off properly.

    I just started properly logging again about a week ago. I'm glad you are asking for motivation because I need it too. I want to lose about 60 lbs and keep it off. WE can help each other.
