    The title says it all. I'm looking for a buddy (or more than one, I'm not choosy.) :D

    I've 23lbs to go to my goal weight and would like to have someone to chat with on my journey. The people in my class are quite cliquey (I've been there for almost a year and pretty much haven't gotten past exchanging pleasantries.) The one good friend I have there is actually my friend's mother and doesn't always manage to make the same meeting as I do (which is completely understandable as she is (rightfully) enjoying her retirement and spending time with her two absolutely adorable grandchildren.)

    So does anybody fancy buddying up with (an apparently social misfit :p ) like me?

    Wow, first in the queue and Irish too. :D Your situation sounds like mine. Do I remember you saying that you knew of my leader and agreed that she was scary or was that someone else? I'm in Limerick.

    In answer to your question about what a buddy would entail I haven't really thought past someone to talk s**** with. :D

    I'll jump in here too, have gone back to my meeting after 15 months away to find NO-ONE there I know.. and generally about 6 members stay! Oh, and my leader is off sick for another month, I only know one clerk there now so I know how you feel...!

    So, erm... hi!

    Hey guys,

    Sorry I haven't been around much. I have a really horrible cold and it's annoying the living daylights out of me. Trying to get around it without having too many hot paracetemol drinks or relying too much on the cough bottle. I know that you should forget about any points they would be but still ... :(

    Thanks LEB. Feeling a wee bit better (bolstered by the fact that even with the party I was at over the weekend, the Benylin and the Grippostad (German Lemsip-type drink) - I still lost weight)

    Congrats on the weight loss. I added you to the May Challenge list BTW. Hope it worked.

    A friend of mine is in Ireland from the States at the moment and she'll be in Limerick from tomorrow so we'll meet up sometime then. I haven't seen her in almost 2 years so I'm looking forward to it. :D
