Weight Loss Buddy was founded by a husband whose wife was gaining weight and feeling lonely. After countless failed attempts to prevent her from reaching for that sixth cookie at 10 p.m., he realized that what she needed was someone who was going through exactly what she was going through.

Weight Loss Buddy is an online community that pairs fellow dieters with one another to lend support and communicate with one another about their respective journeys in weight loss. The program is built upon countless research studies that show partnering with a friend to lose weight or just go along to the gym with is a sure-fire way to stay motivated. Not only does having another person there make you accountable for your actions, but they are also experiencing what you are and can offer support and inspiration when you need it.
