If anyone is still free and wants to buddy up I'd be happy to do this.

I do think it would be helpful to write to someone who already succeeded, but probably there's more who are still on the journey. It can still be helpful with someone struggling just like you are. It's more about accountability than anything. If you know you have to write to someone at the end of the day with your progress you're more likely to follow your plan.

I'd be interested c: At this point I supposed I'd call myself successful aside from needing to find myself daily motivation. (Plus I'm always looking for people to be chatty with.)

I find it helps to connect with people with similar interests, so let me list a few. c: I go to Otakon annually and I've started to go to Zenkaikon when it moved closer to my area.

I'm mostly an anime/game nerd. Favorites to date are Kingdom Hearts, One Piece, Shingeki no Kyojin/Attack on Titan, Sword Art Online, Evangelion, and a giant list of others I'm sure I can't think of. :I;; I also watch shows like Dexter (well... now it's over *sobs*), DaVinci's Demons, Face Off, Defiance... and others that have escaped my mind.

I also have guinea pigs. They're my babies. c:

If that's enough to grab your attention, toss me a PM. Like I said, I'd call myself pretty successful and would gladly give anyone weight loss tips who are asking. (I also work in the healthcare field, so I can say I know what I'm talking about, lol)

I'm in... It's motivation that's my problem. I've always been slender but as I've got older I've put on weight & I know it's not much but the 10lb that has creeped on is making me not comfortable in cosplaying for a lot of the female characters out there (my Harley doesn't fit any more!)

My problem is that I love food so dieting is my least favourite thing in the whole wide world & I have arthritis in my knees so a lot of cardio is actually more damaging to me than beneficial. Any help & encouragement is greatly appreciated.

I would like a penpal too.

It would be great to find someone in a similar situation as me: I am not a teenager anymore, and am looking to lose a lot of weight (53 lbs as of this message) in the next twelve months. I eat very well, watch my calories with myfitnesspal, but don't exercise as much as I should because my life is really busy and this year I had to learn to work around exercise-induced asthma.

I have been losing 3lbs a week since September pretty consistently, so I have a good routine, but the holidays are coming up. I stumbled bad last year around Thanksgiving and I'm scared. I'm hoping that having a weight loss buddy might help me stay on track through the holidays.

If any of this sounds familiar, please send me a PM and we could exchange emails.

I already made a lot of progress but get discouraged a lot.
I've been struggling since I had surgery in 2012.

But I would love to have a email penpal to keep me motivated and to motivate them! and so on

I'd be interested in a penpal/email pal/facebook pal. I am a 27-year-old female, in pretty good shape, vegetarian/vegan/gluten free. I exercise daily (usually Insanity, with some running, strength training, interval training too), and know a good deal about health, fitness, and nutrition. Trying to shape up a bit for (hopefully) a Lum cosplay tentatively scheduled for the end of January.
If you are interested in being my penpal, please PM me on here and we can arrange for a way to keep in touch!
