Hello Everyone,
I am 23 years old and am from the Jacksonville Florida Southside Are and looking for a workout buddy. I recently gave birth to a beautiful 8lb 3oz little girl and she will be 3 months old on June 25th. Before I got pregnant I was 175lbs and at 40 weeks pregnant I weighed 231 lbs!!! Since I gave birth on March 25th 2011 I have lost a total of 48lbs, and it is not just from the pregnancy I have been dieting and exercising regularly since 4 weeks pp from a C-section. I am looking to meet my goal weight of 150lbs by September 25th when my daughter will be 6 months old. Right now I am 183.4 lbs and I plan on losing 10 lbs at least a month. So by that July I should be 172lbs, August 162lbs, September 152lbs.

I believe my goals are achievable and last month I lost 11lbs April 6th: 198lbs - June 7th: 187lbs. bigsmile

I am dieting as well as doing the treadmill 4 times a week following a modified version of the C25k on a treadmill.

I am looking for a workout partner or someone in my area to help keep me motivated and I will do the same, possibly workout with as well. Is anyone in my area interested?

Hey Amber, if you're still looking for a local workout buddy, you might check out That site uses your zip code to connect you with other people in your area who are looking for the same thing, like exercise. Might find someone nearby, and even make a new friend.

Good luck!

Hi! I am in the Jacksonville daughter and I are both on MFP. We are members at the YMCA and go to the Brooks branch or the Yates branch down on Riverside. We also try to get out and run...we like the Riverwalk and the bridges...

If nothing else, we can definetely all be support for each other...she is closer to your age than I am!

Good have done an awesome job already!
