a gleeful, nerd ready to lose pounds!

My name is Lawrence. I'm a 22 year old, senior from Louisiana. I decided to try SparkPeople out after a good friend told me how it helped her lose weight.
For me, my journey with wanting to lose weight was when I stepped on the scale and it was 250lbs + plus. There was no way that my 5'5 body frame could handle nearly 300lbs. See, I have always been the chubby one out of my siblings. I have always been the "fat kid" throughout my schooling (I dislike the word "fat"). In high school, I ...

For me, my journey with wanting to lose weight was when I stepped on the scale and it was 250lbs + plus. There was no way that my 5'5 body frame could handle nearly 300lbs. See, I have always been the chubby one out of my siblings. I have always been the "fat kid" throughout my schooling (I dislike the word "fat"). In high school, I went on a diet and lost a lot of weight. I was about 170lbs in high school, but I gained all of the weight back after Hurricane Katrina.
I told myself that I was going to lose weight while in college. Well, losing weight in college never happened.
Now, I am a senior at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, LA. I have decided to actually give SparkPeople a chance and see how it works for me. I'm 217.4lbs and carry about 30% body fat. My goal is to live a healthier lifestyle. I would love to be fit by the time I enter law school, which will be in fall 2010.
My first goal is to be down 50lbs by Jan. 1, 2010. SparkPeople set my actual ending goal date at Dec. 27, 2009. I will see how it turns out. Hopefully, I will have the help of great people like you to keep me "sparking" strong!

One other thing, when you start losing weight and people start noticing they will tell you you are looking good and so on. If you are like me or a lot of other people I've heard from, the natural reaction to that is saying thanks and then countering it a bit. "Thanks but I have a long way to go..." "Its a start..." Don't do that! You've earned the praise. Simply say Thanks.

Hey, thanks for the message and welcome! SparkPeople has done me great so far, I've been living healthy for about 2.5 weeks now and lost a bit of weight already. I hope it does the same for you! I'll be back to check on progress! Good luck!
