Hi BJ! I am new to Spark People too and am hoping to find some sort of "buddy" to motivate me. I understand what you mean about friends still in the partying stage as my spouse is a little younger than me and is sort of the same way. The only advice I can give you for now is to make a plan (as in work out plan) and stick to it despite what your friends are doing. Easier said than done seeing as I have had a hard time doing it myself. But the hardest part is getting started. Instead of basing your plans on what your friends are doing, base yourself and your work out plans around your friends instead. Congrats on college!

Hope this and other information really helps you.


Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things:... Psalm 98

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though... we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day my day....So fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. for what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal
2 COR 16-18

Doing nothing is the most perfect form of action, when I do nothing there is nothing left undone and there is nothing left to do.... The Way by Lao Tse

Hi !!!

I'm new to Sparkpeople and I'm hoping to finally meet my weight loss goal. I've lost about 45 lbs in the last year on Weight watchers, but I plateaued pretty badly about halfway through. I am now looking to lose 35 more pounds. I'm 21 years old, fresh out of college and entering the full-time work world. All my friends are focused on drinking and eating carry out and although that sounds like fun at times, I have a goal to reach. Any advice on staying focused?

Thanks :)
