I'm 22 and obese. Although I once was very athletic until I had an ankle injury and my father was murder just a few months later. It's been downhill since then... and this was 8 years ago.

It's amazing how a few life events can spin your life into a tizzy. When I was in the 'overweight' category I could lose and gain it back fairly easily.. then life got more busy with moving out, trying to be financially independent, going to college, working full time... and weight just came on. ...

I have 70lbs to lose.

I can do it.. I am eating better but the motivation to work out is a constant struggle that I've been losing more than winning.

Currently I'm a psychology student and self employed.
I live with my fiance and two pet rats.

I'll be getting married on June 30, 2012.
This is extra motivation to kick my butt into gear. Those photos will last forever.... and ever...

Hello! I have recently joined the Sonoma county team, but it seems to be inactive. I see you are listed as one of the leaders. I am looking for some hiking buddies in the area and saw that you're part of the team. I would like to get a group of us together for a hike! Are you in?

Id like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in August. The goal is 10 pounds but really u do what u can. The decision to how much is ultimately up to you. i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? WOW, that is too much! cant do it! But i am here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, (lost 75 pounds) b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for a yr and a half. if u stay within ur calories that are alotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet before, for more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i cant do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while showering, and sitting did leg raises, went up and down my stairs whenever it struck me to do so. i did very minimal stuff. the idea was to keep moving and i did that. so i know with disipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. so i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge! emoticon emoticon
click on link below! or if that doesnt work cut and paste it! please join me on my new journey to begin again!!

Hi There ~

Thank you for adding me as your friend here. I haven't actually really re-begun getting involved in a supportive way here on SP. However, reading your page here has been truly inspiring, as you've got a deeply strong spirit. I also see that you are located very close to me, as I am in Petaluma. And so, it just seems good to add you as a friend, too :)

Sending a Smile,
Kristen

Hey girl I actually moved into the city with my BF but I would still love to get together! Do you ever make your way down towards the city? Maybe we could go on a hike (and by hike I mean a walk in nature...not a crawl up a mountainside) some weekend?
