Hi, I'm Jenny. I'm a busy 35 yr. old SAHM. My kids are 3 and 5 and I also run our remodeling business out of our home and go to school. In Sept. '06 I joined weight watchers and lost a total of 55 pounds. In February '08 I quit smoking and the scale is going up, up, up! At first the sugar took place of the nicotine but now I'm just plain back into my old habits. I like to help and inspire other people but this recent weight gain has made me just want to hide away and cry! I'm embarassed and ashamed. I know from past experience buddies make a huge difference, and helping you is going to help me get back on track. Onward and downward, future buddies!

Be not afraid of going slowly, be afraid only of standing still.

Hi Everyone,
I am a 57 yr old American living in the UK. I moved to the UK 5 yrs ago when I married my Brit Hubby. We share our home with 3 cats born on my B-day who have us well trained. lol

My family are all in the States so life here just isn't the same. Can't/won't drive here so don't get out much.
Have fibro so exercise is difficult so I try to walk or use cardio glider.

I do well during the day but evenings I want to eat. Some nights seem like a marathon of eating. Espically if DH is working nights.

Love people and would love to find a buddy with similar interests so we can help and support each other. Check out my page if you wish. Looking foreward to your email.

Blessings and angel hugs
CJ

I'm Jeanna!!!

I'm a 22 year old rugby-playing grad student studying in the UK (but my heart is back home in Maryland!). My roommates are a drag, so I'm left alone in a house most of the time.

I really can't relate to anyone here, so I just stay inside and eat and eat when I'm not at rugby training. I just miss home, my family, my dog, my boyfriend, and my friends.

This year alone, I gained about 15 pounds, and I want to be happy and healthy, so I'm going to put the weight back down to about 140, because I felt amazing at that weight.

I love sports, but alas the season is coming to an end, and I still have all summer to be here by myself. I'd love a buddy that enjoys sports as much as I do, and maybe we can set up a gym regimen so that I can avoid this damned English rainy weather!

Anyone who loves sweets, chocolates, and breads as much as I do will be terrific because I have the same problems!

--Jeanna

Good Day all~

My name is kimberly

I am over 40. I have a dog and four cats. Since I quit smoking over a year ago it is time for me to take controll of my new life.

Now that our kids have left our nest we just bought Wii, wich I love to work out to.

I need to get in a more of a routine of walking , working out on my gazelle or Wii.
Weekly challenges are great for us to set for us all.

Snacking has always been a problem for me.

I also love to quilt so I am hope to use my hands on quilting instead of eating.

Hope some of you all can relate.

Have a great day.

Hi, my name is Bobbie. I am 54 years old and have been an emotional eater since I was a teenager. Since I turned 40, my ability to take off weight ceased. I'm hoping that being accountable to a fellow struggler will be the answer. Every day starts out the same. I'm on track until about 2pm and then the *#*! hits the fan. If you can relate, please drop me a line.

Hi my name is Heather, I'm new here. I'm looking for a buddy that is supportive, also struggles with Emotional eating, and has a good amount of weight to lose. Currently I'm in a size 20 and want to be down to a size 14. I'm doing a modified low-carb diet, trying to drink water (struggling with that one), and just started exercising.

Anyone with similar goals would love to hear from you! Feel free to message me personally. Thanks!

Hi, I'm Myka,35. I've been an emotional eater probably for about 11 years now. A year and half ago I lost 60 to almost 65lbs and was doing well, but then gained it all back and then some ....and I want to monitor this emotional eating thing so I can lose this weight I gained and not put it back on. I'd like to have a buddy for support, and encouraging each other and who shares a similar amount of weight to be lost, and deals with EE too. If water is a daily challenge, that's a bonus lol, as that is my #1 challenge right now. Let me know if your interested.(More info about me on My Spark Page) emoticon

Hi my name is Heather. I unfortunately know all about emotional eating. I too lost 75lbs at one time, but after life events, and my Mom passing away, I quickly put back on almost all the weight. Now I'm back on the wagon again...lol.

Congratulations for the 70lbs loss!

Steve,
I am 32 and have been dealing with emotional eating all my life, too. My mom has been my role model for that one. I, too, lost nearly 70 pounds, but have been slowly putting it back on. I want to get my emotional eating under control before I have put it all back on. I don't know if you would be interested in having a women for a buddy, but I willing to give it a shot?! Let me know! No hard feelings if you would rather have a guy for a buddy! :)

My name is Steve. I am 30 years old. I have dealt with emotional eating all of my life. When my life gets stressful, I tend to turn to food. Millions of people deal with this which make me feel much better about it. I used to turn to what most would consider "bad foods".

With Spark, I have learned how to deal with my emotions and how to make better decisions. Not saying I am perfect, because I still have my moments of weakness. I have lost 70 pounds. I feel that I could help anyone who has or is struggling with their weight or with emotional eating. If you want to talk, share ideas or be my buddy please send me an email.

Looking forward to getting to know some of you!
Steve

Hi everyone. My name is Bethany. I am a SAHM to twin girls that are almost 3 yrs old and I have a 15 yr old stepson. My husband works night work and sleeps during the day, so I pretty much spend all of my time without adult conversation. My family lives in Kentucky which is over 500 miles away and his lives in New York, a little over 700 miles away. It kinda' makes for a lonely life sometimes and after I had the girls well food became my best friend.

I have been doing good on spark since I joined in Jan. 7th. In fact I have lost almost 60lbs. emoticon

However, there are times that it has been really hard. I definately am an emotional eater. I have gotten better, but today when I was struggling with it all, I would love to have someone to talk to, that would have made it alot easier.

I would love to have a buddy to help keep me on track and let me do the same for them. I am around all the time, so I can email, myspace, chat, or even call.

Let me know if you are ready for a nutty friend. lol

Hello everyone! My name is Cym and I am a 25 year old female that is looking to lose about 40 pounds. Currently, I am 190. This is my second time to do Spark, I started in September last year and stopped smoking (still not smoking!! WOO HOO!) and gained the weight I lost back plus some. Now I am wanting to do this healthily, and know that nothing is "bad" i moderation, but I tend to be an emotional eater. I have PCOS (we have been TTC for 2+ years)and suffered a miscarriage the week of my wedding, but I am using exercise to deal with emotions. I am hopefully looking for some that is also having fertility problems or wanting to become pregnant in the next year or so. If you are interested drop me a line! I look forward to speaking with you!

Cym

On a TTC break until January 2009 to deal with abuse issues (from childhood) and get this weight off and keep it off through healthy life changes!

Hi my name is Heidi. I am 19 years old, next saturday I will turn 20. I live in a small town in Colorado. I am a emotional eater & don't have a whole lot of support. I have 3 chihuahua's(Scooby, Spankie, & Skeeter). They are the loves of my life. I live with my father, for now. I have been having health issues since I was 17, but now I am seeing a specialist who should be able to help me so that maybe I can start college soon. I am the youngest of 5 kids. I have 3 brothers & 1 sister. My father has raised me since I was 2 yrs.old. I guess maybe I should stop here. Don't want to write you a book on my life. I am just looking for someone to vent with & maybe become life long friends.

Hey! I am Darwyn - 41, living in Alabama, but born and raised in Tennessee. I am a mother of 3 lovely children - ages 16, 10, and 4(my mid life crisis!). I have suffered from depression and emotional eating for years now. My middle child has epilepsy and mild autism, which affects both depression and emotional eating. I truly need to lose close to 100 pounds. I would love a buddy to encourage me and hold me accountable. I have good intentions, but sometimes fail to follow through! Thanks!

Hello,

My name is Anissa. I am 36 yy, SAHM of a 7 yo son and 4 yo daughter. I am looking to loose about 80 lbs (docs say 100lbs).

I have a wonderful hubby who understand my weight gain and my reasons for wanting to loose it. He doesn't understand why I can't loose weight as easily as him.....LOL!

My weakness is emotional eating (did it this weekend) and midnight snacking (did it just now)

I need someone who is willing to be "active" motivationally, supportively or even just to listen. I can do the same. I don't need 24 hour attention....LOL....so don't worry, it would be great even if only via Sparkpeople or emails.

Edited by: ALOOSINGWEIGHT at: 5/4/2008 (23:20)
Food nourishes my body, not my mind. So, why do I keep eating when I get overly emotional?

Hi yall. My name is Tiffany i am 26 years old. i have been over weight most of my life until i turn 17 i had decided enough was enough. I end up losing 70lbs. well when me and my husband decided to become truck driver i end up gain all the weight and then some in a matter of months. well i have gotten out of the truck and so far i lost 42lbs before i found the website. Well i have about 70lbs left and I'm having the hardest time losing it. It hard to stay focus on a diet plan. Bottom line is if there is anyone who want to buddy up let me know. i need someone to help keep me focus and i will try my best to help them stay focus as well.

Hi -- Heather here. I'm 37 yo - born and bred in North Carolina - single, never married - no kids - want to lose almost 80 pounds, but probably need more -- I'll see when I get there. =)

History -- lost both parents to lung cancer, my mom in '03; my dad last year [07]. I'm the youngest of 4 -- there is a HUGH age difference between me and my brothers/sister [13, 15 & 20 years!!] Up until this year so much of my life was concentrated on others (I don't regret it), however I [ME] got lost in the shuffle. Time to focus on ME!

I haven't found my 'soulmate' yet so I have fun with my friends and I am mama to two SPOILED ROTTEN kitties. Love all animals and would have more if I had a farm and someone to take care of them for me so I could just play. LOL

looking for my buddy --- someone to 'check-in' with on a weekly/daily basis; at least 3-4 times a week. Someone that I am accountable to besides myself. Someone that won't 'roll there eyes' if I tell them I hit my calorie goal or I walked after work or ACTUALLY went to the gym. I have great friends, but they aren't going thru weight-loss issues like I am. I need someone that understands that I am happy with myself -- in fact PROUD of my curves, but know that in order to enjoy life [better/longer], I need to lose FAT! In turn, I will encourage and support my buddy however I can.

Hope there is someone out there willing to go thru this journey with me!!

Hi! My name is Karen, I live in Oregon. I have been a single parent for 14 years. I teach fitness classes at the University, but gained 40 pounds over the last 5 years when I was also working night shift at the hospital. I work out very hard two days a week when I am teaching, and am trying to get back into some sort of healthy routine on my days off so I can undo the damage to my body and eating habits that came from the hospital job.

My biggest challenge with emotional eating is a big bundle of gunk from the eating disorder I had as a teen. My mother and doctor put me on my first diet when I was 8 years old. I was a teen in the 70's when all the weird dieting fads were going on. I know what I need to do to lose weight, but when I start losing, I get scared because of past issues and end up hitting the chocolate and comfort foods.

I could use a buddy who is fairly well-educated on exercise and nutrition, but who is also neurotic when it comes to taking care of her/his/self.

Thanks!

Karen

Hello everyone!

I am a 25 year old stay at home mom of my 2 1/2 year old daughter. I'm also a full-time college student majoring in psychology with a minor in criminal justice.

After my daughter's birth, I lost the majority of my pregnancy weight, but soon after I decided to get on the depo shot... It was the worst thing that I had ever done. I started gaining weight and decided to change my eatting habits and get healthy - it did not help. Nearly 50 pounds later, here I am!

I'd love to find a buddy... someone to succeed with. Please let me know if anyone is interested!

emoticon I will graduate (with High Honors) and receive my first degree this May!

Hi, I am a 60 year mother of two children, five grandchildren and on great grandson. I need a buddy for emotional reasons, Our daughter was just diagnosed with cancer and they can't find where it is, she goes to North Western tomorrow to see a female doctor, they are looking at maybe her ovaries. And since you are a hospice nurse, you may be really good for me and help me through this if the going gets ruff. I am a social worker at a nursing home and our daughter is a nurse in a hospital. My husband is a farmer and farms with our son. We all live in the same small town, which makes it nice. Kris emoticon spark4life1 don't have a verizon phone

Hi! My name is Lori Anne and I am 30 years old. I am married, June 6th will be our 10 year anniversary this year. I have 3 kids...a daughter that is 9 and 1 year old boy/girl twins. I also teach full time. I am still trying to lose the baby weight. I only gained 59 pounds, but they sure are taking their time going away. My highest weight was 224 (I think), and that was the day I was induced to have the twins. I am now holding steady around the 180 mark. This year has been a whirlwind, and I have not been able to focus much on myself as I would have liked to. Two of my very close friends moved last summer...that is when my slump really set in. I had lost my outside support system outside of family, which were all 8 or more hours away. Anyway, I am notorious for eating just for the sake of eating...whether I am hungry or not. I have gotten better control of it, but when things get crazy, I kind of throw it all out the window in weakness. I need super strong accountability...seriously, I am like a kids that needs constant supervision...LOL...well, maybe not that bad, but sometimes it feels that way. So, if you think we would get a long, email me...

I'm 22, last year in college. Gained a little over 20 pounds since school; I am currently at 157lbs looking to be around 120 - 130lbs. I'm not over weight by all means but I am an aspiring actress/model and unfortuantly body image is an issue.

I am not only doing this for my goals but I am an emotional eater and I need help in motivation to stop that. Right now, I am not over weight but I know if i dont learn how to take care of my body, it will all catch up and I really want to live a long healthier life.

I am def. looking for someone who is possibly around my age and weight goals. It is not completely necessay but I thought it might be easier to relate.

Thanks alot!

- Kristine

Hello everyone,

My name is Tracie I am for the time being a stay at home mom to a 6 month old son. I have been married for 6 years next Sunday. I had a very rough pregnancy with very limited diet. Very stressful. I succeeded through that and went crazy with food after I gave birth. I want to succeed in losing weight as I succeeded in my pregnancy. I have been heavy nearly all of my life and I just want to be healthy for me and my family. I could really use some encouragement (and I can give some to). Is anyone willing to help out and be my buddy?

Hi,

I'm a 25-year-old Arkansan, married, no kids. I did pretty well for a while, lost about 20 pounds, now I'm not doing so good. I need to get exercising and eating healthier foods again.

I am 34, divorced and Mom to a 3 year old boy. I work as a supervisor of a 911 Center and live in the Denver Metro area (Colorado).

My highest weight was 337 pounds. In Aug. 2006 (at 307 pounds) I had gastric bypass surgery and lost 116 pounds in about 9 months. I have pretty much stalled since, having lost about 10 pounds since January when I got serious on Spark and started working out with my trainer. Although I am happy with what I have accomplished so far, I would like to lose another 40-50 pounds so I can get closer to the goal weight my doc feels I should be at (145).

Exercise used to be my nemesis, but I have figured out that shelling out the cash for a personal trainer at least gets me in the gym 3 days a week, and am still working on getting in there in between that. Food is still my biggest enemy - my goal for May is to stay within my calorie range at least 3 days a week (hoping for more). So far, I am 0 for 4 - the reason I am looking for a buddy!!!

Okay, I think I babbled enough. I look forward to seeing what happens with all this!

Be free to be yourself - for mirroring me would be a waste of you.

Hey-
I am not too sure what the buddy system is all about, but if 800 are in need it seems like we should be helping out!!

I am getting out the calculater to see how old I am - guess it's true I am 45. I am married. I have two grown step sons. I live in the middle of no where.

I am unique at best.

Willing to do whatever is needed. So if emails, laughter, tears and life in general will help you out. Let me know. I am happy to play.

I am 55 years old, two boys grown, no grands, empty nest depression.

I teach psych nursing, work pt-tme in hospice.

Right now have broken wrists, sore knee and foot from a fall, so I joined the sparkbootcamp but am limited in my cardio.

Hi, My name is Tina, I'm a Long Islander. 56 years old. Married, one daughter age 26 (who still lives at home). I've always been an emotional eater and am trying to break that habit, along with a lot of other habits. I've been walking, but can only do about a mile - have done 2 miles but it's hard on my breathing. Need a buddy!

Hi Everyone.

Thanks Jen for doing this.

I am 35 yrs old, married with one child. I'm currently a stay at home mom. I like reading, cooking, baking. And making new fiends. I am looking for someone who can kick me when I need to focus, and a shoulder to lean on when I messed up. Zap me an email any time.

Hey Everyone! Ok. Theres no way that I could find buddies for 800 people so I just started this thread for it. If you need a buddy, post a little about yourself and what you are looking for/need in a buddy. This is the better way to do it so that you all can read more specifically what youre looking for. Thanks!!

Emily, Louisiana
