A supportive crew without unsolicited advice?

Hi. I am new here. Need a few friends. I am working hard to shed some weight and would love to see the results of others doing the same.
I love positive support and am very careful about giving advice. I am no doctor or expert.
I also have a lot of people in my personal life who give me advice all the time (without me asking) or even hinting that I need it so.... I promise to always support you and only give my opinion when asked.


  • HI!

    I joined today too.

    I know what you mean about family members giving advice. Ive been ill for 3 days and lost 9lbs (not delibrately, purely from being poorly) and my nans response was 'what a great start to losing some weight' yeah, thanks nan (!)

    Feel free to add me as a friend xx

    The only advice I'd give is, Don't Give Up! Welcome!! Support and encouragement is crucial for success. I think it's just as important as making good food choices and exercising. Feel free to add me. I'm kind of new to this site ( not the dieting game ) and could use more friends to help me along this journey to fitness.

    Feel free to add me as a friend. I like to encourage other people and see their progress. Plus I like the encouragement myself. I'll only give advice if it is asked and generally I will only say that it has worked for me. But everyone has to figure out how to make it work for them or it won't stick.

    Feel free to add me too. I like cheering folks on and don't judge. I've got plenty to lose so I will be here for awhile and I check in every day.

    Hi! I would love to join. Currently working on losing weight- I'm going to weight watchers at work meetings for physical support but this is great to talk when I need it before the meetings.

    My overall goal would be to lose 40 lbs and get down to about 135. My dr says that I am really muscular and testing shows that I should lose 10 lbs or so. I'm also trying to conceive right now.

    I love new friends, and the ones I have found on here are GREAT. Very supportive, and the advice is out of this world. I am constantly saying to myslef "I didn't know that" .

    Please add me as a friend.
