Hello! My name is Alyssa and while I've kept off 50lbs for five years, I need to lose another 50 to get down to a healthier weight. I honestly just want a healthier life. I know that I have many bad habits to break and I want to have a lifestyle that is active.

I love to jog especially in nice weather, and I also love hitting up the gym. The gym is my place of solitude and where I can just take it all out.

Otherwise I love to read, draw, and play neopets online! (Kid at heart xD)

Hi everyone! I'm Mandy and I've been on Spark for almost 5 months. Im a 27 yr old Canadian nurse and I've lost about 45lbs so far and have 80 to go. It looks like this group is a bit more active than the 20s with 100+ to lose (where I've been posting in) so I thought I'd join this group too. Always looking for new friends!!

Hey!
I'm Jaci (Jackie), and I am 20 years old. I am currently 215 lbs, and I want to lose 50 in the next year. I have started and stopped with diets since I was 12, and I can never seem to keep up the motivation. I love to write, so I am hoping to use the blog feature as sort of a diary. It also could be cool to have a buddy to do this with, so if you're interested feel free to message me!

Pleased to meet you! And good luck with your goals,

-- Jaci

Hello My Fellow 20-Somethings!
My name is Leah. I am from CT and I am a 26 year old working at a small college campus. I live on said campus as an area coordinator, managing students and staff. It's fun, but super stressful and challenging to take care of myself. I am looking to lose around 50 lbs (more would be wonderful, but I want to set a solid starting point!)

I want to drop this weight before I start wedding dress shopping in October 2016 (I got engaged two days ago to my wonderful fiance, Chris!) and I want to look as beautiful on the outside as he makes me feel on the inside! He also deserves a healthy, happy wife and I'm going to try my damnedest to give him that!

I struggle with motivation and staying on track, but if you like ballet, horseback riding, yoga, photography, Netflix or generally just life in general, add me and we'll connect!

I look forward to meeting/talking to lots of you!

Lots of love,
Leah

Well you CAN do it. Sometimes actions and results will speak louder than what you say, so break down your goals in maybe ten pound increments. Don't let it discourage you, it's YOUR journey and your results come as quick as you get focused on your goal and health. Believe me, you are capable of a lot more than you actually think, so don't doubt, and EXPLORE your maximum potential!

Hello!

I turn 29 this year. Somehow, I always thought that to become a responsible adult is something that happens automatically. But that is clearly not true.

How many times have I told myself that I should start my new life:
-At New Year
-At the end of the month.
-Next week
-Tomorrow
-Today (?)

And how long does my new life last? Maximum 10 days

So, what's the big things that my new life shall consist of that seems so difficult to maintain for more than 10 days?
-Eating sweets only once per week
-Work-out three times a week
-Vegetables / fruit with every meal
-Weekly cleaning
-Socialize with other than your partner twice a week (work does not count)
-Meditation / relaxation once a week

Or simply. Exercise more, eat better, do not be a hermit and reduce stress.

I am 29 years old. I have high blood pressure that I must take medication to treat. I have pain in the feet, knees, back and shoulders. I am constantly tired. I often feel anxiety and stress both at work and at home. I'm too tired to spend time with both friends and family (besides RPGs that takes place 1-2 times every two weeks). I eat sugar almost every day (usually on the way home from work). And few are the small vegetables that can be found on my plate. I weigh 93 kg (205 lbs) and is 167 cm. The apartment looks like a garbage dump except those days when I was expecting a visit. Then I stress-clean up an hour before and makes it look alright. It's a bit like all of my energy goes to work, but there is not anything left to put in my own life.

This does NOT work. I hope (and believe) that I am not alone in failing to achieve good routines.

So... here I am. And I´m going to try to really make it work this time. But I think that I will need help with my motivation.

Feel free to send a message and we can support each other!

Hi everyone! I wanted to take second to introduce myself. My name is Courtney and I'm from outside of Houston. I have had issues with my weight since I started dating my highschool sweetheart and now fiance! You could say I gained "happy" weight from all of the dates and junk food nights and beers and fun stuff. I started trying REALLY hard to lose weight in 2010 when I came home from college weighing 190 at 20 years old. I used SparkPeople religiously and worked out about an hour a day every day. I quickly got down to 160 and was so confident and comfortable in my own skin for the first time in a long time.

Then...50 Shades of Grey came out! I know what you're thinking. "How is that even relevent?" Well....read the first book..and by the time I got to the third one came out I found out I was pregnant. I guess we were...inspired. LMAO! I fell off the wagon hard being pregnant. I was way too comfortable in the "eating for two" pattern. The day I delivered my son I weighed 222. After having the baby, I got back down to 170 by his first birthday.

Then, I started a new desk job. Sitting all day, stress, having the access to a kitchen with free snacks all day, it's just snowballed. This morning I weigh 220. 2 pounds from what I weighed at 9 months pregnant. The madness has got to end. I am getting married to my high school sweetheart next June and REALLY want to be able to shop for wedding dresses and not want to cry looking at myself in the mirror. I really want to make a lifestyle change. I want to end the "sick and tired" feeling that plagues me everyday. Me and my maid of honor are doing this together, and I think we are going to be successful. I just wanted to introduce myself and spill my story and maybe gain a few "accountabl-a-buddies" to help! I really want to get down to either a size 8/10 or 160-170 by my wedding. Cheers to the journey!

Hello! My name is Beza and I am a 21 year old rising college senior. I honestly don't remember when I became overweight but I think it was sometime in middle school. I am chubby in all of my pictures from high school and DEFINITELY from college so it's been a while. At my heaviest I was 197 and then got down to 181 and now I am 188. I am trying to get down to 135 (53 pounds, YIKES!) by my graduation from college in May 2016! I hope to meet many of you and to support you all as you too try to actualize your healthy dreams!

Hi there, I'm Krissy. I'm 26 years old. I've been overweight my whole life and been hit with a few autoimmune diseases which don't help that fact. I need to lose some weight to try to help out with the pain in my joints and my overall health. I'm hoping that I will find this community supportive and helpful!

I'm Katie. I joined a few months ago but never really did anything. I weighed 239 lbs. three years ago, when I got pregnant with my daughter. I have since gotten down to 217, but I have started gaining it all back way to quickly since moving from a manual labor job to a desk job. I could use some guidance and motivation.

Hi everyone! I'm name is Talicia, but you can call me Tee. I love meeting new people, trying new things, and creating new experiences, which in return will create great memories. I'm glad to know I'm not on this journey alone and to be apart of something that will benefit me in all areas of my life. I've fallen off of this wagon numerous times since I was about 14; however, I have to say I am more determined than ever to stay on MY PATH, and tackle this journey MY WAY. I'm am getting ready to turn 21 on June 8th. Officially legal in the USA lol. Hope to befriend many people and help one another along the way! Have a great day you guys!

Hi everyone. My name is Naz and I'm from Canada. I enjoy watching movies and dramas and reading books. I made this account last year but never really used it until quite recently. I have 73 pounds to lose and it's worrying me because I have a tendency to quit things halfway. Having been insecure about my weight most of my life, I'm determined lose most of my weight before my next birthday. Glad to be here and wish you all best of luck. emoticon

Hi, my name is Sara. I'm new to SparkPeople and the group. As of now, I have around 97 lbs to lose. I've decided to make the necessary lifestyle changes to get to and maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle in order to avoid the health problems that run in my family and caused my father to pass away at a young age. I'm looking forward to making connections with everyone and getting/providing the necessary support and motivation to be successful.

Hi, My name is Courtney, and I am not exactly new to sparkpeople, but I am trying to lose weight again. I am 25 and taking time off from school. I work as a delivery driver for papa johns and that makes eating right a little difficult. I am at the end of a divorce from an abusive spouse and my true goals here are to get strong mentally and physically so that no one will ever do that to me again. I have never used the forums here, but I am finding myself losing motivation about every 6 days, so maybe y'alls support will be helpful. Good luck everyone, and stay positive.

Hey! My name is TreAnna. I'm 20 years old and a Creative Writing/ Biblical Studies double major. I'll be a junior in college this fall (yay!) I've tried Sparkteens before, but never got very far. My problem is I don't stay motivated. I'm hoping that I can go much further with the sparkpeople program. :) I really want to lose weight so that I can be healthier and have more energy. Right now I'm in the mid 200s--something I'm not comfortable with at all.

I'm married to my best friend going on 9 years this November and we have 3 sons together. I am pretty good about tracking food and very active,well as active as I can be for a temp,. stay at home mom. I ride my bike with my kids to school, which is a 2 mile there and back ride. so I ride there in the morning and come home,2 miles, and then repeat each afternoon. I do my aerobics, use hand weights and have an elliptical machine. I was a member on sparkpeople years ago and just came back from another fitness site. I really like the new changes sparkpeople has made. thanks for having me in the group. emoticon

I don't believe you have to be better than everybody else. I believe you have to be better than you ever thought you could be.

Hidee-Ho Neighbors! Miguel Ortiz here.

I'm 21 Years Old and trying to get my life back in order after a couple of years doing bug all nothing about making my life better. As of late I've been trying to eat healthier and walk 15 minutes a day after work. I also want to regain my confidence after getting my heart kicked in the rear end more times than you can count. Anyway, glad to be here and hope to really use this tool to its fullest extent (even though I don't have a smartphone :P )

Hello new friends!!

My name is Jessica, I'm 26 years old and am currently at about 250 pounds, hoping to drop down to 170 pounds.

I had gastric bypass five years ago (5/10/10) and went from my highest weight of 362 pounds all the way down to 175 pounds. Gastric bypass was (and still is) a great tool to help me battle the weight... but life happens and old habits die hard. Here I am facing a 75 pound regain.

Tomorrow is my five year surgiversary, and I'm ready to start getting back to business! I was using tumblr for a while as a support tool, but I'm finding that unless you're 'tumblrfamous' you don't get much support. I've heard great things about the SP community, so I come to you all with high hopes that we can do this together! :)

→Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in and day out.←

Hey everyone. I prefer going by D, am 23 approaching 24 in September, and trying my best to lose weight and get in shape. I used to be a member years ago, but I deleted, and so I'm back. This time I'm ready, willing, and determined to do this. I need to lose about 50lbs min. and probably more afterwards, but I figured 50 is literally the bulk of my problems with weight so start there, and see how I feel when I get to it. I'm a university student, after taking two years off, currently work as a nanny for a 1 and a half year old, and enjoying Summer break.

Hey everyone! My name's Megan and I'm from Alabama. I was pretty active on SP several months ago, and I'm ready to get back into it! I've been on my current weight loss journey for about a year and a half and so far I've lost 67 lbs! I've been more successful this time than I ever have. I feel like the weight loss is slowing down a lot, so I thought by jumping back in to SP, I could get more motivated again like I was before!

Welcome to the team, Mike and Beth! Great to have you joining us!

Mike - I feel like most of PA is small towns. I think the exceptions are Philly, Pittsburgh, and Harrisburg.

Beth - Remember that keeping up with fitness can give you more energy and a clearer thought process to keep that GPA up!

Hello All! My names is Beth and I am new to Spark People. I'm 24 years old and currently attending university. My current weight is 189 lb and my goal weight is 120 lb. I want to reach my goal by May of 2016 as this is when I graduate and I want to feel confident for my photos. I also just want to start living a better and healthier lifestyle. I Have a bit of a problem staying motivated as I tend to prioritize my GPA over exercise and eating well. I am hopeful this this will help keep me on track :)

Hey Everyone! My name is Lindsey & I was on SparkPeople about 4 years ago but I'm back and super focused! I'm at 196.4 and my goal is to be at 135 by December 1st! I have amazing support at home but I know how key SparkPeople was to my success last time. The daily support and accountability means everything. I'm single and I live by myself so that's dangerous when it comes to food. Just because you eat it in private doesn't mean people don't see it when you're in public! I'm 29 and I am determined to be completely happy with myself before I'm 30. I hope to get to know all of you as we go through this together!

Hi im Jenny im 28 ,married from Pennsylvania and raised in Maryland :-) :-)!! :-)!!
Im going no-low carb and no sugar diet.
I have pcos, hashimotos,gerd,pre diabetes,elevated free testosterone levels.
Im here mainlt to get support because im a carb craver I will be going on a medication to help with that craving.

Hi, I am Kristy! I have been tracking carbs with Spark People while I have been pregnant. I am not diabetic, but since I am heavy, it was a good idea to avoid too much weight gain with the baby. I lost about 50 lbs before I got pregnant (315lbs to 265lbs) and have gained about 15lbs-ish this pregnancy. I am only a week and a half from my due date!

I have been working out regularly at the gym and swimming throughout my entire pregnancy, so I feel really good still:)

I am planning on just having some self care with rest and a nutritious diet for a month after the birth and getting back to exercise when my doc says it is ok.

My LT goal is to get down to 190lbs and run/walk another half marathon!

HW - 315 lbs
CW - 281 lbs (6 days PP)
GW1- 250 lbs (for half marathon Oct 18th)
GW - 200 lbs

Hi, I'm Amanda. I started working out in January at a local gym. Recently joined Spark :) Right now I'm working out with a coach two days a week, and I do a fitness class at least one day a week. I'm starting my first round of the 21 day fix next week, which I'm hoping will help me improve my portion control! I want to lead a more active lifestyle like I used to. Happy to be here!

Amanda

Hi. My name is Hayley. I live in Illinois. I am a full-time student and part-time receptionist. I am trying to lose 50-75 pounds. The most exercise I get is walking to the bus stop, from the bus to school, and from the bus stop to home. I am trying to lose some weight to feel better about myself.

Hi :)

I'm Tea. I've got roughly 84 pounds I'd like to lose, more or less. I'm working on being as plant-based as possible (not difficult, I LOVE fruits and veg) and staying far, far away from anything overly processed. I'm mostly focusing on my diet right now and hoping to incorporate more exercise as I get further into the lifestyle. I recently

I'm in grad school part time, working two jobs part time, and I'm the primary caregiver for an ill family member, so I'm really hoping this community will help me relax and unwind a bit.

I'm really looking forward to interacting with everyone here and helping keep each other motivated

Hey y'all!

I'm Amanda, and I have about 90 lbs to lose total. I have been on SP in the past, but life happened and I lost my motivation. I'm back to lose my baby weight plus the weight I put on before I got pregnant!

I'm a mom to an 11 month old baby boy who really keeps me on my toes. He is practically running now after 2 weeks of being able to walk. I really want to be in the best shape I can be to keep up with him and set a good example for him.

I'm starting again with Beachbody's 21 Day Fix meal plan and workouts. I started a challenge group yesterday, and my first round on 21 Day Fix I lost 9.8 lbs and 9 inches. I'm looking for excellent results this time around, too! If anyone is interested in 21 Day Fix or has questions about any other Beachbody programs (P90X, Insanity, Brazilian Butt Lift, Piyo, etc.) let me know! I would be glad to answer them! :-)
