I am in Newport. I see that I'm considerably older than most of the people who are posting but I am trying to get back with the program and start losing some weight again -- or at least get healthier. I've slowed down over the years but I'd love to have people to walk with on the various trails around the area.

I would definitely like to chat I sent you a message with my number if you want to text, could definitely use a friend and accountability buddy on this journey if you are up for it!

Hi Sara! I live in Havelock and I'm trying to lose a good bit of weight. I hope to start school again soon and I'd like to become an RN eventually. I'm 29 and I have a 5 year old son. I was overweight when my hubby and I got married 10 years ago and I've since gained alot more weight. I went to be a healthy Mom so that I can be a good influence on my son and any other kids that we have. Hollar if you want to chat! :)

Hi Sara, we have a few things in common. I live in New Bern as well and plan to become an RN. I have taken all my prerequisite classes and plan to begin the RN program next fall at CCC (if all goes well and I do good on the teas).

I have 3 kids and gained a little weight over the years and now that I'm done having babies, I'd like to get rid of the weight. I've gained about 15 lbs since I got married and started having kids, but before then I use to be very thin and that's the weight I'd like to get back to. I'd say that I have around 30 lbs left to lose. For me, eating a low carb diet seems to work best. I've tried counting calories and other diets, but I always feel like I'm starving on them. I usually work out at Gold's at least 3 times a week.....try to go more if I have time.

Best of luck to you =)

Best of luck you guys!


Best your own best friend. Take real good care of yourself!

Congrats on making it here and becoming the person you want to be. I totally understand and relate. I live in Rocky Mount, NC and I started doing Weight Watchers on August the 4th with most weeks success and I am hoping that tomorrow will be my 5% goal day. Yes, I do and have struggled with my went, so I can relate. I am also married to amazing and supportive husband for almost 15 yrs in August. No children and 3 pets. Love them like they were children, but guess what they are and that is all we will have. We both are 41 years of age and happy with no children. Congrats if you would loved to have them. So, I will love to be here if and when you need me to support you. So, we have the same goal to loose weight and keep it off. We can do this!! I know we can!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I'm Sara and could use some additional accountability as well. My husband is great support but he fell in love with me how I am so would be happy if I only lost 5 lbs let alone 50+. I am back in school pursing becoming an RN with hopes of ultimately a Nurse Practitioner. I'm 25 and ready to make the change! Hopefully you wanna be "battle buddies" on this quest!
