(3 day raw vegan/3day mcDougall diet/1 day whateve)
Weight: 213.5

I am looking for an accountability partner on my weight loss journey. I am the heaviest that I have been in my life and I feel its toll. I have a habit of getting into a challenge – routine – diet and exercise plan and throwing my plans out the window within a week of starting. The most I seem to be able do at a time is 10 days and then give up just to start up a couple weeks later with the same result and let the cycle continue. It doesn’t help that I work from home and have zero in the way of a schedule to keep.

I need someone in the same boat who isn’t shy about admitting that they want to change and believe they can change. Is this the year that we make a pact to change together? I would like to help anyone in the same boat as me. I am a shy person about these matters and so don’t reach out for help … but I need help I have to admit that this time. It’s going to take more than just me this time.  Hopeing to find someone in my area but would suffice with an internet buddy for the next 12 weeks.

So what do you think? Would you like to transform yourself with me? We could set up a daily facebook check in chat. Schedule 2 activities to do together 2 to 3 times a week and have a chat through email once a week about where we are at. We can take before and after photos together and keep tumblr blogs that we both comment on and give support in.  Just you and me for the next 80 days slugging it out.

I am really not interested in joining a group. They honestly put me on edge and I am constantly comparing myself to certain people in the group.  I never use this place anymore since well it hasn't really helped as you can see.  My weights only gone up since I have been a member here so I would prefer to go a little deeper and get a little more personal with just one buddy. What I really need is a dedicated one on one partner who is just as eager and willing to getter-done. You know? Right now I would like to lose at least 40lbs and would be ecstatic if I lost 60lbs. Are you sorta in the same range as me?

Currently my daily checklist is:

Drink 2 liters of water per day
30 min cardio or weight lifting exercises
Eat within 1400cals and 1800cals per day
Do Stretches
Get out of the apartment for 1 hour a day

---So those are simple enough but like I said 3-5 days and I usually fall off the wagon again. I need your help. Do you need mine?  I am on day 4 of my journy just now and I could really use a buddy.

I just had a thought that it would be fun to alternate weeks – One week I would recommend what I would like to do and one week you would recommend the activities. We can set up 4-to-5 day goals for each other and make a game of it somehow – Like first one to lose 15lbs buys the other one an upgrade to their blog or perhaps mails the other sometype of low budget prize to be decided on.  You know heighten the stakes and set up rewards to motivate each other. Perhaps each 10 pounds down by each of us gets a pick from a hat for a simple prize for the both of us or something… so the other person’s success is just as important. We can stratigize in a chat.

Progress as of today: 5 lbs lost so far, only 23 lbs to go!

Wishing you the best with your continued drive to work on your health and weight! I wish I could be your partner but do not feel I could live up to all the challenges you wrote about. However, on here, I am your partner always just like I am for everyone! I think it's great we can at least support each other here. I will say that my goal for the summer is to lose a few pounds. I would definitely LOVE to be in the low 120's this summer. I am working on losing some weight myself. I think i'm around 128 now. Sorry, i'm short, so it's still pretty high for me. But just like you, I wanna lose weight, and will support your goal. and hope to motivate you.

My husbands gone screwed the pooch with my work computer. He bought some crap from value village for 25$ bucks and installed it and now everything that was working fine before is just not working anymore. Trying very hard not to panic attack at him. He's upset because he might of wasted 25$ and I'm upset because this means another wasted day of not working on something. I wish he could of been experimental with the laptop instead. I could give a **** about the laptop. - do you see me screwing around with his tools? no... *this comment is coming out of stress and frustration and not having anywhere to put it* GAH!!!!

I hate it when things go wrong with my laptop...feeling these days that I may have to replace it sometime soon...probably will replace with a tablet or something easier to type and sit on the couch with!

Down again - Hoping to be back under the 200 mark by the end of next week.  I'm hopeing that this 10 pounds I gained was mostly water weight and hopefully will come off quickly.

Really inspired to keep with this.  One item on my bucket list is to go vegan for 1 year so at the start of this year I recommitted to the vegan thing.  My dad was over for the Holidays and I haven't told him because he just wouldn't understand so I was eating lots of cheeses and meats and milk during Dec so he didn't find out I went Vegan and guess what all the weight came back.

  So now that he is gone I am recommitting.  My greatest worry is how I am going to lie about it to my dad to avoid having to eat meat in the future.  The reason I lie is because he totally shunned my sister because of her "hippy" ways and even bringing stuff up like GMO's, Environmental issues or Veganism and my dad goes off on angry wild rants about how stupid it all is.  There is no global warming in his eyes - The conservative party aren't corrupt but great for this country – Oil companies create jobs – he seems to be a right wing nut about a lot of things.  I avoid these topics like the plague- 

I love the man more than his beliefs… sadly I know he doesn’t do the same in return.  He is the only family I got so I feel forced to be someone else when I am around him.  We talk about the weather and money problems and current events but never go beyond pretty lukewarm subjects.  When I was a kid I sought his respect in all matters and mimicked so much of his thinking… So he still thinks I am that little girl that thinks so much like him…. But over the years we have become as opposite as can be.  My sister refused to be someone else so she would just be herself and my dad constantly nit-picked at all her choices and they would get in heated debates about the stupidest of things.  My dad was never hurt by it but she was… She was constantly made into the black sheep of the family.  So I feel like a pretender whenever we visit now.  At least he is still in my life I think to myself.  At least we don’t fight.  At least… but as I grow into my own woman with my own beliefs I find this seems to get harder and harder.  I think… well he won’t be around forever and then I can finally never worry about it…. How weak a relationship you have with someone when you are waiting for their death so as you can finally not stress about being yourself.

Total underlying crazy tonight.  Nobody knows how crazy inside I have gotten.  Bubbling over with crazy and I can't even feel comfortable sharing here.

Hey Mskitty, keep on posting anyway, it helps- I'm definitely a little crazy too! And its helped my crazy being on here as I'm finding I'm feeling a little less alone with it... Hope to see another post from you soon and that today is a better day for you :)

grumpy on 09/11/2013:
hey, you'd be crazier if you thought you were normal. :) Be good to yourself!

grumpy on 09/11/2013:
PS: the one phase in my life where I acted crazy, it turned out to be because i was in a situation that wasn't good for me. It was a bf, but could have been a friend, a job, etc. Find what's causing you to lose control and remove/fix that in your life. Worked for me. xoxo

Nothing ever changes.  Seems like the world becomes more corrupt every damn day.  The party is over, so when will people start cleaning up the mess...? Well more like our kids will have to clean up our mess... you know if they can survive poverty, malnutrition and a planet that can’t support them any longer.
Pretty down about the state of the world lately and this road we're on, kinda like the boiling frog anecdote describing a frog slowly being boiled alive. The premise is that if a frog is placed in boiling water, it will jump out, but if it is placed in cold water that is slowly heated, it will not perceive the danger and will be cooked to death.

I'm trying my best to switch over to a sustainable and healthy life so that I can be an example for my children one day.

-No more animal products
-All natural cleaning/body products
-Little to no packaging use
-No more debt
-Trying my hand at permaculture and trying to get into an agriculture apprenticeship so I can make a sustainable property and grow all my own food and be totally off the grid.
-All organic
-Reused products and recycling
-Energy and water conservation
-Only public transportation
… and so on

But sometimes it feels like it’s just a drop in the bucket if my household is the only one out of hundreds in my area doing the exact opposite of these things.  What is it gonna take for real change?  Can’t count on the politicians, can’t count on the educational systems in place, Can’t count on the hypocritical religious institutions.  All I can do is keep on picking up sustainable habits and hope that it catches on one day.

Went to a beach party over night for the long weekend.  I didn't really know anyone there the first night and my husband got drunk/sick quite early in the night and so I was left to my own devises.  After the first night things just went downhill and the 2 people that I did know their left the next day.  So I was really out of sorts the next day and my husband was all like "Why don't you come socailize with everybody." and I was all like... um no thanks, I tried- they didn't really spark my fancy I would rather go then stay here in the middle of no where with a bunch people I dont know and can't relate to.  He didn't get it.

I feel like I haven't found my crew in a long time,  I don't know how to bridge the gaps or find the people I need in my life.  Maybe I'll always be left "wanting" in the friends department.

Progress as of today: 19.4 lbs lost so far, only 6.6 lbs to go!

Wishing you the best, Kit. Try an Open, Honest Smile. Take Care.

hollybelle on 09/02/2013:
Sounds like a bunch of partiers. I don't think I'd like that crowd, either. It helps me in those situations to just try to have an interest in others and not judge, not expect too much of them, make the best of it, But you are right - we can't be around people we need to do that with all the time. Our friends do not define us - only we can do that - but it's one of the finer things in life to have friends we can have a fellowship with even after not seeing each other for years.

legcramps on 09/03/2013:
Agree with holly... partiers just aren't my type anymore either. Too bad your husband doesn't get it :(
