I posted this in the wrong place so here it is again.

Hello! I joined SparkPeople last year, used the food tracker and exercised regularly, lost 10 pounds, then went off and gained them back. I've returned having learned that I need to do everything I can and use the tools freely available here with NO excuses to reach my goal of 45 pounds weight loss. I'm aiming for 1/2 to 1 pound weekly. I didn't gain the excess pounds overnight but hope that with dedication, keeping the vision of myself at target weight, and with encouragement I'll reach goal within a year. I'd really like to connect with some Sparklers who are also seriously committed to weekly weigh-ins, regular exercise, use of SP tools like the food tracker, and are willing to be accountable with me as I would be with them.

Hello - I really need to get my focus back. I lost almost 25 pounds back in 2012 and have gained 10 pounds back. I know that swimming and tracking my food every day is the key for me. I just give myself too many passes. I don't really want to go back to WW to accomplish my goals.

I would like some positive female spark friends who would like daily accountability and support from each other.

I could sure use a buddy. I used SP a lot years ago when I had a tonne of friends and a great community to check in with every day, but I don't have that anymore. I'm looking to lose 81 lbs in time for my brothers wedding in August. That won't be the end of the journey for me though, need to lose another 50 or so after that. I'm great with monthly and weekly goals. I have a bit of OCD so I thrive on routine. Anyone interested, message me!

I would love to have a buddy. My name is Amanda. I started out at 191 pounds as of my last doctor's visit, but I stopped drinking soda, and so far I've lost five. I would LOVE to see 135ish by my next birthday, 09/30/14, where I'll be turning twenty-eight. I am 5'6. My fitness regimen is pretty much a hodge podge of a bunch of different things:

- stationary bike
- starting couch to 5k tomorrow with my little brother
- some basic strength training with smallish hand weights (we're currently hunting down a weight set for a bench we have, so I plan on adding more when we do!).

Looking forward to meeting you all!

Hello there,

I would love to have a buddy as accountability is a main motivator. To share a little bit about myself...I have always been on the heavy side and that doesn't slow me down. I love to exercise and just completed a triathlon in June...2 weeks after completing it I fractured my ankle. I have returned to some of my previous activities but needless to say I have put weight on and need accountability logging, planning and staying on track with my nutrition.

I weigh 170 and want to loose about 30 lbs.


My September goal is to log my food, eat healthy, exercise, and to loose at least 1 pound a week.

I'm here to be a buddy to whomever chooses. I can contact pretty much every morning unless I do something crazy like climb a mountain.... lol - yes, I've been known to do this. I'm great with jokes and sympathy/empathy. I'm attending University come September and I work as a careprovider. Hit me up!

Hi All, My name is Amanda - I desperately need a buddy! I have a little over 10 lbs to lose, but I can't find the motivation to get started. I would love some help. I can be very motivating to others but seem to fall flat on myself!

If you are tired of starting over, stop giving up!

Hi, I had a good day; I did alot of exercising so that was good but I maxed my calories for the day. Try to do better today.

Check out the Jump into the Spring Boot camp challenge, it will keep you moving 5 days a week. Did you do the jumping Jack challenge under fitness today. 3 set of 10

How are you doing today?

Good morning Angela, I go through the fitness pages and I pick out the ones I think I can do than I set up a routine for the day and save it on favorites. Have you tried any of the videos some are as short as 4 minutes. I watch them first than if they look do able I do them.

I also do daily challenges from another team, I will share them with this team.

I love to walk with a video I got off u-tube for free, they have all kinds to choose from.

Just by communicating daily encouraging each other help me stay on task.

Hi Pam my name is Angela. Communication on the team page is fine with me. Maybe we can motivate others too. I need help with exercise and being active. I work part-time so I'm usually at home doing nothing. If you can help motivate me to exercise that would be great.

How can I help you?

Hi I am also in need for a buddy. Everyone is in different stages of losing weight. I know everyone on here would like a buddy, right?? Thats why we are here. So I suggest we pick a name above or below yours or even both and see how that works out??? Do I sound pushy??? Hope not. Just thought it was a good way to get to know each other and to give our leaders a small break. Good Luck.Happy walking emoticon

Hi! I am 38 years old and happily married. I have two wonderful dogs and two fun litlte gerbils. I'm finishing my BA in psychology and own a very small business. I used to be a Skinny Minnie until I hit age 30, and I've been on a yo-yo ever since then. I have a lot of health conditions that make it more difficult to lose weight, but I need to just put all the excuses aside and lose the weight and learn how to keep it off.

I joined SparkPeople to try to get myself to be more accountable for my eating and exercise. I'm looking for any buddy who wants to keep in touch, keep each other accountable and motivate each other. Basically, I'd love to have a 'support' buddy.

Thanks!

My doc said to take a year to lose weight. That's my goal!

Good Morning,

My name is Lori. Im looking for someone not only to hold me accountable but someone that needs me to hold them accountable. I have been on this diet yo-yo for so long but I have got to make changes in my diet......not just for me but for my daughter so that she won't have to battle this weigh issue also.



If it is to be, it is up to me...

I am in desperate need to find a buddy. I am trying to lose about 60 pounds. I am married and in my mid- 30's. I hope we can provide each other motivation and encouragement as we try to become healthier.

I do the Leslie Sansone walking videos. I'm flexible and need some motivation. Like I said I do in-home walking and am trying to get back in the groove of going to the swimming pool and doing water aerobics. I've been lacking motivation this past month. My doc started me on a new med and hoping it perks me up soon!

Hi. I would like a buddy to be accountable to during my weight loss journey. I usually do the Leslie Sansone workouts for either the one mile walk or sometimes I do the 2 mile walk. I also walk around the neighborhood sometimes for twenty to thirty minutes, and I walk on the treadmill for about 30-40 minutes at the gym. I usually work out 5 days a week, so that I can have two days off for rest and relaxation. I usually watch what I eat, and drink my water, and I can help to motivate others to reach their goals, as well. If we work together, we can be able to reach our goals.

Hi all! I'm looking for a buddy. I'm 27.
My highest weight was 272, I lost down to 199. Then once I got pregnant with my second child, I hit up to 260. I've started the new year at 246 and am hoping to get down to 219 by my birthday in May.
I stay at home during the day, so I have a lot of time to think about eating, lol.
I'm hoping for a friend I can email, or text with through out the day about goals, meals, plans, activities and such.

Hello, Well think its time for a buddy, someone who is in the same boat as me and is eager to row out of this plateau! I started at 234 and am stuck at 2o7, I went down to 2o3 but thru exmas put on 3 and a half, I followed good all week and went to get weighed in , to my horror gained half a lbs 1/2 aint bad but when it adds up to 4 all together ouch! So maybe some good ole fashioned hard working out may help....... Anyone who would like to do a challange with me would be awesome............
Cheers

Hey yall! So I want to try a buddy system. I have been a member of spark for over a year and I need to try something different! I am going to try and spend more of my time online here on spark. I do not work and am online alot, but not on here enough! I need to get more familiar with this site and how it works..seems confusing for me, which is weird bc I am pretty good with computers and the internet.

My plan is to do Zumba on the move for PS3, and yoga here at home. I also have a small gym where I live. I did have a gym membership, but that is up 8/27/11 and i am not going to renew. I didn't go enough and I wasn't real happy with that place. So I am going to try it at home and see how that goes. I also want to get some weights for here at home. I do have a medicine ball and some stretchy bands.

So if anyone is interesting in teaming up let me know! :)

I think I could be a good buddy to someone, and I think having a buddy would help me a lot.

I am online every day. I exercise at the gym most days, but I am not an exercise freak, it's more like 15 min. of weights and 30 min. of cycling while I read a book. I have a history of fibromyalgia, although I have it under control, so over-exercising is not for me. I watch what I eat, and am pretty good at it, although I still have too much fat a lot of days. I am working on consistency, tracking my food every day and exercising every day.

My interests include riding my Harley, growing tropical plants, recovery, animals and reading.

Hi, I'm Toni.

I'm 43 (soon to be 44) and have put on weight over the last 4 years. I'm desperately trying to take it off with little success. Hoping that having a buddy (or many) will help me be accountable. I live in beautiful Colorado with plenty of outdoor activities available.

Hi SparkFriends!

I'm Sherri. Although it shows I've been a member since Jan, I've only been active in Spark People since July 6. I am on here every day.

Here is my info:
Start Weight: 184
Goal Weight: 135
Height: 5'5
Fitness regimen: I try to walk a mile at least 4 times a week. When I started 3 weeks ago, it took 25 minutes for me to walk a mile. This morning, it took 16.

I also ride my bike around the neighborhood. I have a bike trailer I pull my son in. I try to do this 2 times a week at least, but this summer heat is killing me! :)

I use a Gazelle at home if it's too hot to walk/run outside.

I also do strength training MWF - crunches, push-ups, and squats. When I started 3 weeks ago I couldn't even do ONE girlie push-up. Now, I can do 10. Practice, practice, practice! :)

I am not a fitness guru. I'm not a workout queen. I'm just a mom who looked at her summer vacation pictures and said "When did that happen? When did you become the fat girl?" I'm tired of being tired. I'm tired of avoiding the camera. When I reach 165 I can contact my Air Force Recruiter to go into the AF as a Nurse Officer. That's a goal.for me.

So far, I've gone from 184 to 177. I follow the calorie guidelines given to me by SparkPeople and track my exercise. It seems to be working! I would love to have a buddy to chat with and encourage!
