Looking for CR buddies

Jane Doe

Recommended Posts



I'm new to these forums and would like to introduce myself. I am in my mid-thirties and had been overweight for most of my life until 5 or 6 years ago. I lost 90 pounds over the course of 18 months through healthy eating and gradual calorie restriction (though I didn't call it that at the time). Over the last 2 years, I have maintained a weight about 20 pounds higher than my lowest weight. Part of the weight gain came with increased muscle mass and part of it was from just eating more. As my life has become busier and more stressful and over the last 6 months, I have gained 5 more pounds. So I want to re-establish the joyful, disciplined eating I enjoyed 4 years ago and lose about 10 pounds. 


I'm looking for "CR buddies" who, like me, need regular reminders that what we are doing is just good, common sense and nothing extreme or dangerous. I need regular reminders that the moments of discomfort and inconvenience are ultimately worth it. 


Please respond or private message me if you are interested in being in touch on a regular basis. 


Please also respond or private message me if you know of a better place to post this message. 


Thanks so much and have a great day,

Hi Everyone,

I'd like to introduce myself. I am new to the CR Society as of today.  I am 49,  5"4 and feel best at 114, BMI of 19. I can consume 1000 calories a day and lose but only 1200 to maintain. Period. I exercise every day and I never adjust calorie intake based on exercise. It is already factored in for me. Staying trim takes more discipline each passing year it seems.   I  joined the CR Society today because I want to have the support of other like minded individuals with the same health focused goal where food consumption is concerned. My Dad died of Cancer and my Mother's side from Heart disease. I am wellness focused. I want to proactively decrease my risk factors by eating a nutritionally sound diet, 360 days of the year. (yes, 5 days of holiday or birthday cheating) I am a Whole Foods and Farmer's Market buyer to ensure organically fresh food products. 


I invite any member of this CR Society who wants to support and be supported with this personal healthy eating goal to reach out so we can do this together. It is NOT easy to make good food choices every meal of every day. We need to stick together. I am glad I found this organization. 

We can do this together!

Hi Linda and Jane,


I also would like to have the support of other like-minded individuals.  Because this way of eating takes so much discipline and is so different from the way most people eat, it would help a lot to be able to talk to others who are doing their best to stay focused on their health.
