WARNING: Excessive self-disclosure ahead!
Last year I donated a kidney to my best friend. While recovering I came down with Rheumatoid Arthritis which is yucky and painful and makes it hard to move. Also I had to take steroids that made me gain 30 pounds which is much more of me than I want to have lumbering around.
Now I think things have stabilized enough that I want to start working on losing some weight, but I'm notoriously bad at it. I figure it might help to have a "health buddy" to check in with every day and since I already come here regularly, I was wondering if anyone else would be interested in a daily chat or email to encourage each other along the way. We probably wouldn't want to do it in a public thread and I'm sure the other members wouldn't be interested in reading the daily wailing and gnashing of teeth that will ensue.
Anyone interested? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
