we will be posting in most of your guys’s ask boxes today telling the your buddy. make sure the ‘ask’ is turned on. also, be nice to your buddy! after getting the message, be sure to chat with them! you can find out what you guys have further in common, and discuss strategies and set goals and deadlines together. later in the week, we will be posting challenges for you guys to team up together and compete against other buddies, or have friendly rivalries between the two of you. also, if you have any troubles with your buddy or future suggestions, feel free to write a comment.
best of luck!!!
hey guys! sorry about all these posts today, but it has been a crazy first day. we have received an overwhelming amount of submissions (i guess you could call them) and we have been working hard all day to try to find the perfect matches. we created and updated an ‘about’ page, as well as others, so be sure to read them! we are going to try to create as many matches as possible, but it is important that we have your support. by putting in our ask box, you are committing to getting and becoming a buddy to someone else. it is important that you stay in touch with them, and essentially become close in order for the weight loss to be as successful as possible. also, would help if in your submissions you were clear as to what was most important to you in a buddy, whether it be having a similar weight, or the same age, or if you don’t care! also, we put those topics in the ask box there for a reason. when your submissions are very vague, it can be very tricky to pair you up. anyway, thank you guys so much and i am so excited to see how well this all works!
*~we created an AIM screenname (lol old school) so please feel free to contact and just chat us there. weightlossbudies (ran out of letters- ha!)
we’ve gotten off to a great start! lots of requests so far. we will try to pair you up as soon as possible, so when we see enough similarities we will contact you. we want you guys to be as successful as possible, that is why it may take a few days. fear not! we will get to all of you. thank you for being so kind! in the meantime, we will post a lot of motivation, tips and more. please spread the word so that it is easier to find a match!!
