Can we be a buddy group? Looks like we are all in the same boat.

I am 42, mother of 2 boys and we are an autism spectrum disorder/ADHD family (meaning that all members of our family are on the autism spectrum somewhere and 3 of us have ADHD). Unfortunately for me, this leads to a lot of stress eating. This summer was particularly bad and I have gained back all but 11 lbs that I lost when I started (AGAIN) last year.

I've lost and regained so many times that I've lost count and I really need encouragement, motivation, accountability, and partnership (ie. let's exercise at the same time or try out the same new healthy recipe). Text/email is fine. Facebook chat would also be nice and I don't mind being called but can be hard to reach by phone.

I am in the Central time zone so am an hour behind anyone in the northeast which is good if you have an 11pm binge craving. I'm likely to still be up. :)

Every day we get a chance to start over. That's 365 chances every year. All we have to do is take them.

I would love an accountability partner too.. I am 47 and weight 172. I'm putting it all out there! I would love to text (preferable) or email someone when I need some support to step away from the snack shelf. I am in the northeaster US (time zone issues). Please join me on my journey!

Hi there Smallersize,
I am looking for a text and email buddy too. I am a 43 year old mother of two who is working hard to change my outlook on weight loss after 40. You sound like you are in the same boat so if you would like to team up that would be great. emoticon

Never give up, Never surender

I am looking for someone to help me 'push through' the diet slog--be motivating as I will be for you. Since weight loss is harder for us 40 somethings, it would be helpful to buddy up with someone similar. Thanks!
