Howdy

Im from Hot Springs and I too am overweight.. I think that is actually the first time I heard myself say that. I have a fear about my weight. A real FEAR, and ive got to come to grips with it. My mind, which loves to play with my emotions, tells me 2 stories. the first being my parents passed in 03 and 04 both of lung cancer and my mom being heavy practically shrank before our eyes. Loosing 18 pounds in less than a week. I think i have a hang up about that, cuz something inside teels me if I loose then I MUST be sick also..and that scares me, although Im a pastor I know better, but somehow i cant control that and it is very very dark in there. ive tried sountless diets, too many to name, but nothing has ever worked, I really gained alot of my weight after i quit smoking 6 yrs ago, i guess i exchanged 1 habit for another, so whihc is the lesser of the 2 evils..lol would love to talk with others from arkansas if just for support, i think it is vitally important to have support, so manytimes us moms get busy and we give the support , but when the time comes for ours, the buck stops here. Im facing 40 yrs of age in October and I would liek to say on my birthday that im starting a new healthier me, just cant for some reason.yall can email me anytime debbailey66@aol.com

Looking for a online support buddy

My name is Misty and I live in North Little Rock. I have been overweight since I was 12 and I am soon to be 42 and I am just sick of being overweight. We are on a limited budget and we buy the same food every week because it's all we can afford. Ramen noodles, chili, bologna, I am so sick of all these foods. I am hoping when I go back to work I can buy healthy nutritious foods for me and my family. I am hoping to find some buddies here that can help me out with losing weight and I hope I can be supportive as well.

Anyone in Arkansas

Hi my name is Patti and I live in Green, Forest, Arkansas. I need to lose about 80 more pounds. I have lost 22 in the past 6 months. I am looking for someone to go through this with me to be a support and motivator. I would love to have a walking buddy or just someone to chat with. All my friends and family are in Maine and I am really lonely and have no friends and know no one here except for my husbands family. I would love to get back to Curves and would love a workout partner.  Anyone out there need a friend??

Quote From: koolkat

My name is Kristin I'm  married with a 3 year old son.  We are living in Springdale,  I currently am a stay at home mom; but  really need some adult interaction!!  I would love to get in a excercise routine but finding it hard to do it by myself!  My family and friends are in Kansas, my husband's mom moved us here 3 years ago and I have HATED it ever since!!!!!!!  I think maybe if I were to meet people it would'nt be so bad.    

Hi Kristen,

My name is Patti, I live in Green Forest. I too am alone here, my family is all in Maine. I moved here 6 months ago so my husband could care for his Mom and like you I hate it also. I live probably and hour and a half from you but if you would like to chat online that would be cool. I am sure I am much older, I am 46 if that doesn't bother you. I have been overweight for years and years but I have lost 22 pounds since I have been here and would like to lose about 80 more. If you would like to chat that would be fine with me. My email is arkiegirl53103@yahoo.com. Look forward to hearing from you.

 Hi Misty, I am Debbie and I live in Sherwood..I have been overweight since I was 30 years old and now I am 48 going on 49. I have also been on a budget. So I totally understand what you are going through. I am drinking alot of Crystal Lite and eating alot of salads and veggies. I snack on different flavored wheat thins and it helps me. You and I should get together if possible. I am going to return to Curves here in Sherwood soon off of Kiehl Ave. Do you know where that is??Well, get back to me if you would like to talk anytime. My only child is a son who will be 27 this month and lives in San Diego and I am married and stay home now because of some health problems. So, maybe we can exercise together. I thank the Lord everyday that goes by when I am not in alot of pain. Take care,,,Debbie
