Hey! I'm Jennie, 19, and a sophomore at UMA in Maine. I've found that I cannot do this on my own, I came here looking for support and to give it as well! My short term goal is to lose 10 pounds. My longterm goal is to lose 20 pounds and be able to run a mile without being winded!

Hey everyone, I'm a freshman in college and I'm an accounting major. I have been a member of sparkpeople for a while but I never really used it. Now I'm ready to really commit and make a change.

My life tomorrow will be the result of my attitudes and the choices I make today.

Hi everyone! I'm a 21 year old college senior at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. I study International Relations and Middle East Studies and love traveling. I'm hoping to lose about 20ish pounds but much more interested in becoming stronger. I was really athletic throughout high school and my first two years of college and am upset with how my body doesn't reflect that. If anyone is looking for an accountability buddy let me know!

You cannot stay on the summit forever; you have to come down again. So why bother in the first place? Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above. One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself in the lower regions by the memory of what one saw higher up. When one can no longer see, one can at least still know. - Rene Daumal

Hey everyone! I'm Maddy and I'm 18. I'd like to lose about 9-14 more pounds. Also, I'm a Senior in high school so I'd love to learn about what college is like from other students - especially in dining halls!

hi there! i'm looking to lose about 20 pounds and really tone my body with the help of everyone else on this website. i've been struggling with body image issues for as long as i can remember, probably since i was about 8. i'm 18 years old now, 130 pounds, and 5'4". i'm slowly starting to integrate working out again and healthy eating. it's the binge eating that gets me. i punish myself in my head and tell myself that i have to start over. it's really a vicious terribly cycle. but hi fellow sparkpeople!

Hello, I'm Ieva. I joined sparkpeople a long time ago and it really helped me, I lost weight before, but now, I let myself go again, and I decided to return and get the support and help that I have gotten before, so hopefully, it will be another successful story for me and I will be able to lose the unwanted pounds!

Hi, I'm Clara. I joined SP a couple of weeks ago and am now trying to use the community section of the site - there's so much on here! I'm 18 and want to get rid of some unhealthy habits whilst losing a few pounds and gaining some confidence.

Hi, I'm Meagan. I'm 20 and attend Phoenix College. I joined SP at the end of last month and joined the team today. I was a little bit of a chubby kid. When I was in high school I lost two pounds and kept it off. Now i want to lose one or two more pounds and tone up so I can fit in to the wedding gown of my dreams within the next year or two.

Hi I'm Kait! I just joined SP and the team today. I'm 19 and hail from the University of Hartford. My weight has been interesting. I was a chubby kid and weighed 145 sophomore year of high school. I'm short (5'0) so that was a lot. I then lost 20 lbs (YAY!) but gained 10 of it back about a year ago. I succeeded in somehow losing the 10 lbs over the school year and now want to lose 9 more so I can be in a better weight goal for my height. I'd really enjoy losing my tummy too!

It's great to know that there's people my age out here looking to better their lives. I can't believe there's somewhere where all of this is free! I always wanted to join WeightWatchers but the fee completely turned me off.

I'd love to find a buddy in my area that would love to keep track together!

Trying to look hot in a LBD!

Hey everyone!

I'm Mel, I'm 20 and a poor busy college student who has kind of put off fitness for school. This past year I've turned it around though and have lost about 20 pounds already over the last semester. I have hit a plateau though and would like to lose at least another 30 pounds, so I just joined SparkPeople and am kind of new to this.

Feel free to add me, I am all for meeting new people who are going through this as well!

Hello my name is Shaun, and I am a 21 year old Mass Communications major. I've been on Spark for a while, but I'm just now starting to fully use the website. My main goal is to live a healthier lifestyle, and should I lose about 40lbs in the process I wouldn't be upset emoticon

I have a million interest, but to name a few I love reading, writing, sculpting, good food, hiking, and swimming (don't get to do the last two very often). I've been told I'm an adorable weirdo, so take that as you will lol. I love meeting new people and making new friends so feel free to add me emoticon

Hey, I joined SparkPeople today and boy, am I overwhelmed! I can't believe all of this is free and such a great resource! I hope I stay focused and determined to follow the regimen that they recommend.

Something about myself... I am 20year old female and go to Campbell University in Buies Creek, North Caroline, USA. I major in Clinical Research and Biology. I have been obese my entire life. My goal is to lose 50lbs at least by Jan of next year. I am determined to change my lifestyle to a much healthier one! I could definitely take all the encouragement I can get.

I hope to be an encouragement to each of you!

Hi everyone! My name is Molly and I am 22 years old. I am currently at 248 pounds and ideally would like to lose over 200 pounds, but I have set a more achievable goal of 50 pounds for myself so that I would be down to 200, which would be fine with me. I am getting married to a wonderful man named Dave in July. We have been dating since January 2010. I would like to lose weight not only to look good in my dress, but also for health reasons. My fiance got diagnosed with type 2 diabetes last June, and I know I am at risk for getting it too because it runs on both sides of my family. I also have high BP, so I would like to get that down as well. My fiance and I live in Overland Park, Kansas in an apartment with our dog, Princess. Dave and I like to take Princess for walks, watch movies at home or at the theater, play board games (loaded questions is our fav), have friends over, and go out to dinner. We are a really laid back couple and we enjy meeting new people!

Hi there, I'm Liz. I'm 19 and currently a freshman in college, pursuing a degree in Elementary Education.

It's my goal to lose close to 80 pounds, and it feels really daunting right now. But I know I can do this, with the support of everyone around me.

Good luck to everyone! :)

Hi, I'm *kinda* new to SP. We barely moved into our new home and I've been doing alot of settling in, 3 months worth.

But my name is Patricia, everyone calls me Tricia or Trish. I'm 26 y.o. From Riverside, California in southern California. I am married to an amazing man named Derrick, he's 29. Together we have 3 beautiful children; Eve is 7, MJ is 4 and Ollie is 1.

I've been trying to be on here daily. I don't think I have any SP friends on my page though, but if you message me, I promise to reply. I could always use a friend as well as be a friend :) I hope to meet/message most, if not all of you soon! Thanks!

Hi everyone! My name is Sarah and i'm from Spokane, WA. I'm 20 years old (21 in Oct. :-) ) and just working full time. I loved playing sports and have always been active until I got a job my senior year in high school. So once my basketbal season was over I didn't have time for sports anymore. My boyfriend and I usually just hang out at home and never really got out and did anything so this year we've decided to try and get out more and just make more time for fun. So that has inspired me to get back into shape so I can actually have cute things to wear out instead of living in sweats and t-shirts. :-) I love meeting new people and would love some spark buddies.

Hey everyone!! It's so nice to meet you all. I can't begin to explain how thankful I am for SparkPeople, and all the people here. It's so awesome, and helpful to have friends, who KNOW what you are going through, who can offer advice, and motivation to keep you going strong.

I'm Ashley :) I'm 22 years old. I have an amazing husband, and 6 month old daughter. I have already lost all of my pregnancy weight, and working on myself now. I haven't weighed less than 200 lbs. in years now. I have been with my husband for five years now, and I looked completely different when we first started dating. I want an awesome body for my husband, and for myself!! I want to be healthy for my family!

My husband does a big music festival in town every year, and it's August 6. I want to look good for that, and I'm determined to do it right this time!

Going to join the Spring Challenge now!! :)

Hi! My name is Kerri, and I am just about to turn 19. I live in Canada. I recently was declared in remission from a serious illness that I have been dealing with for the last 5 years. Now I want to start a healthy lifestyle, and lose around 30 lbs overall before going to university in September. I like to take my dog for a walk, bike ride, and volunteer at the local elementary school.
