Hmmm.. what about an online workout buddy, like here at weddingbee or using another website? You can compare workouts and give each other support via email/chat! I do that with my mom 🙂

We have our online workout buddies on here.  They can’t go with you to the gym though but honestly I like to be on my own and zone out when I’m at the gym instead of concentrating on talking with someone.  Especially since whenever I see girls together in the weight room they are always talking instead of working out.

do you have a relative or does your hubs want to lose weight? I worked out with my cousin (who I adore!) but Mr.D and I couldn’t work out together b/c we have such different goals. I want to lose, he wants to gain! Maybe see if anyone on WB is in your area and would want to go to a gym with you? Or, if you can find one within your budget you can pay your personal trainer to be your buddy. They’ll be nice to you – and whoop your ass into shape 🙂 

Also, I think they have Biggest Loser Boards now? Maybe someone there near you, or someone on a weight watcher board? It seems risky, but maybe a craigslist board? Just have them meet you somewhere other than your gym in case they are a weirdo. good luck!

I actually met a wedding date twin of mine on a wedding board and we became virtual workout buddies! We actually lived sort of close to eachother, but not close enough to work out together (we’d grab lunch together though!). We did weekly weight check ins with each other, and that kind of stuff. It was motivating just knowing I;’d have to “report” to someone, and she was on the exact same path as I was, since we were getting married the same day. We’re still friends to this day!

oh! and when I was in England Avocado and I always kept each other accountable. We’d chat around my lunch/her breakfast, and again before my dinner/ her lunch. It was great on the food side of things and made me want to work out as well!

This might sound weird, but you can totally post an ad on CL for a workout buddy. 😉
