Hi there I just wanted to say thank you for reaching out to me with your message. I totally understand that I am responsible for me and it's up to me to make the change for myself but I know also that having somebody who can encourage you and help support and motivate you makes all the difference in the world!! For me unfortunately all of my friends around here are super slim and they totally don't get why its upsetting to be overweight they just think that I should just be happy with myself and that's that but really realistically that's not the way it works.. I know that losing weight is not just a physical act it's also a mental act and you have to fix what's wrong on the inside of you aka mentally so you can fix what's wrong with you on the outside..I'm not happy with myself so I have to make a change and I know I can do that but I also know that if I have someone in my support system who can push me encourage me the way that I want to for them it can make all the difference in the world. I know helping somebody who you may not even know can make all the difference in the world that maybe there's people out there like me who don't have a support system and who just need someone to do this journey with them and I am hoping that I'm going to find that on this site and be able to relate to somebody and encourage someone and have them reach their goal and have me reach my goal at the same time.. I know it will take time I know ill get there.. thanks..

I applaud your efforts to find what you need. I suggest that you check out the teams. My teams have made me more accountability to myself and made a difference when I stumbled. They celebrated my triumphs, no matter how small. It is a wonderful way to meet others with the same goals and find a buddy.

There are many teams based on age groups, interests, goals, etc. Check some out. And, if the first one or two are not the best match- keep looking. As my own needs changed, so did my teams.

I also suggest that you join a challenge - either a SparkPeople challenge or a team challenge. Focus on one or two things you need right now for your challenge. I found that too many challenges became too much.

Good luck!

Hey! Congrats on starting first of all. I just recently started too. I know that having someone to push you and help you helps a lot, but in the end, it comes down to only you. Do YOU want it bad enough and do YOU want to reap the benefits? I am just asking because for me, if I decide I don't want to do something then no one can change my mind. I have to really want it like I do right now. I am here if you ever need advice or help just send me a message or comment :) Good luck!

Take it one day at a time. :)

Hi I am new to this site I am 36 almost 37 I have over 100lbs to lose. I have been on numerous sites and yoyo diets I am just looking for someone man or woman both to do this weightloss journey with. I want to be able to motivate, encourage, support and yes even push and help someone reach there goal and have them help me reach my goals as well. Be someone's jillian or bob I know it is possible to do this to lose the weight I just can't do it alone. I want to have someone I can do daily checkins with someine who is honest and is not afraid to push me when I need it. I believe anything is possible if you have support I'm looking for that here. I am just looking for a chance to have someone reach out and help me and in return have me do the same...They say food does not taste as good as thin feels... I would really like to find that out.. I know I can do this I just don't want to do it alone.. I need help I need support I'd like to find someone out there who has as much to lose as me or close it might make it more relatable but looking at others profiles I might be the biggest here :( I am beautiful inside I want to feel it on the outside as well.. I am ready to be a biggest loser in a good way... Reaching out to someone can not only change their life it can change yours as well... :)
