Hey girl! I read a couple of your blog entries and can totally relate to you. I have more weight to lose than you do but your reasons to lose are so similar to mine. Maybe we can be weight loss buddies and help each other out. Let me know if you're interested! 1987 days ago
There are many Spark Teams for College Students - I would suggest you hover your mouse over Community in the Orange Tool Bar and then click on Spark Teams. Type in College and check out some of the teams. People going through what you are going through can support you best!

I was 54 when I joined SparkPeople and 56 when I came back and started my Spark Program, starting with Stage One. This is a one day at a time program, but if you do the SparkPeople Program Steps, it really does work. I am terribly average, it's the SP program that is extraordinary.
I found logging my foods in the Nutrition Tracker helped me to lose 90 lbs in 16 months! I started at 210 and went to 120.
I hung clothing that was too small on my closet door and every time I would get discouraged I would try them on. Week by week they started fitting! That kept me motivated.
Welcome aboard, we really are all in the same boat! Sometimes we can sail right along but sometimes we have to be rowing like crazy!
You can make it happen! SparkPeople really does work!
