Hello! I'm Felicia. I'm 20 and I'm a junior earning an English Writing degree. In my 2 and a half years in college I've gained about 50 lbs and I'm hoping this group (and this site) will help me lose that and then some since I wasn't exactly healthy before gaining that weight. It's nice to meet you all!

Hi everyone! My name is Mariah and I am 21. I am currently trying to "restart" my diet since gaining the 80 pounds back that I lost. I was at my highest weight of 269 pounds, and my goal was 135 but I stopped around 188ish and ended up gaining it all back with stress and carefree eating. I am a college student and I start another semester on Tuesday (I am afraid of gaining more with the stress of school but hopefully I can get past that). I have to remember that this is a life change not just a short fix. I would love to have friends on here this time around instead of trying to do this on my own so feel free to add me :)

I started 1/1/14! Happy New Year for sure. ;) I'm in my early 40's and returned back to school after raising 4 kids. I'm on target to get a BA degree (pre-law or other) in 2016. I really need this site help keep me on track. Last semester, I gained about 20 lbs due to stress from going back to school full time after all these years. It wasn't easy, but now that I know what I'm in for, I feel confident that I can control by eating with this site and still get my AA this spring!

Best to everyone in 2014!

Hey, I'm Fey!
I'm a 20 year old university student attending the University of Toronto. I'm a Linguistics major and am minoring in English and History (Woot Napoleon!).
I'm 20 pounds away from reaching my ideal weight, and I joined Spark and this particular team because they seemed extremely motivating.
I'm planning on getting completely toned for August, when I shall be taking part in a Cosplay project (for those who don't know, it's basically dressing up as a favourite fictional character and embodying their personality - basically, adult dressup!)
I hope I can talk and help others here who also need motivating

- Fey

Hello there. My name is Amanda, I am a graduating senior in the Los Angeles area. I've come back to SparkPeople after a long hiatus to take care of an anorexia issue that resurfaced during school. After a lot of therapy, I've gained weight and am ready to take control and get healthy. I work on campus and am usually here from 8Am to 10Pm with minimal breaks.

I am trying to get a regime going that I can stick with to keep my energy up, weight down and mood happy so i don't revert back to bad habits. Look forward to getting to know some of you all.

Hello!

My name is Erin and I'm halfway through the MOA program at college in BC. It's my first time in college (I started late in my early 30's) and find it quite challenging but worth it. My husband and I just started trying to plan our meals and eat in every night and so far we've managed it quite well.

I'm wondering though, for all of you busy students, when do you find time to get exercise and what do you do?

Hi there we have a lot in common and I want to tell you, you are not alone. I have struggled with my weight since I was 11. My self esteem has lowered since I have gained 30+ pounds my first semester. I hate putting a fake smile on my face when I'm around people. I highly recommend to take use of your schools resources. Seeing a counselor has helped me stay positive throughout the semester. I also went to a nutritionist to learn healthy habits in the cafeteria. If you think positive and maintain healthy habits you will be encouraged to keep going and one day you will meet your goals. I have decided to lose the weight this semester and I started my journey for the umpteenth time today, but one day I will meet my goal. if you want to talk more you can send me a message. Happy Holidays!

Hey there!
I'm 19 and in my first semester (business economics).
Weight (loss) has been a struggle since I was like 13 years old and I want this diet to be my last one. I don't like my body at all which keeps me down every day. I want to be self-confident and happy again, for me, for my boyfriend and for all the people I love.

Hi all! I'm Laura, and I am actually student teaching this semester! (I graduate in December)... I need a lot of motivation to get on her everyday, so if anyone can offer that, you will soon be my best friend!
I am engaged, and I plan on getting married in June. We also have a 4 year old son, who is one of my best friends (as you can see from my photos!). I am busy, busy, busy.. but I have really tried to set aside time each time to walk around the neighborhood with my son -- not only because I love the time I get to spend with him, but obviously because of our health!
PLEASE contact me!! I'm looking for as many friends as I can find!! I love meeting new people!!

Hi there,

I'm Kenzie, and I'll be starting my senior year studying environmental engineering this September at Cal Poly. I'm here because I want to get back to feeling like myself - a lean, mean, running machine! I gained a bit last year because, quite frankly, I ate my feelings. A bad breakup, lots of stress with school, and a hectic work schedule took away my motivation to exercise or eat healthy. I'm determined to cook healthy meals and keep up my training schedule for a half marathon at the end of August - anyone have any suggestions for tasty vegan, gluten-free recipes?

Just take five minutes to regroup, and don't ever forget to make time for what makes you happy.

There were several things that hindered me from taking care of myself first. I was one of my dad's caregivers and he recently passed away April 15th. I really didn't know what to do anymore. I work night shift at a police dept dispatching and went to school in the mornings at UHD. The gym not so much... but I'm back! I used to be fit back in 2009 and now I'm taking my life back. A sergeant from work had told me about SparkPeople and decided to try it out. I have PCOS, so it's hard to lose weight and I'm gaining more energy from using Spark by Advocare. I've lost 3% body fat! emoticon

Hello everyone! I'm Jordan and I go to COD and hopefully a graduate school soon. I gained weight my last 2 years in high school and even more in college. I am really hoping I can stick to a workout and healthy eating plan, but I have tried in the past and clearly have not succeeded. For me, I really need to be involved in something, like this website, in order to keep me motivated. I hope I can also find someone that I can help out or who can help me out. Good luck to everyone in their journey!

Hi Cayce! My name is Chrissy and in the fall I'll be a senior at RPI. I know exactly what you're talking about with no real support from family. My aunt and uncle own an Italian restaurant, pasta rules my life! I gained about 30 lbs in the last 4 years, I alternate between losing and gaining weight all the time :P. I'm hoping that by joining sparkpeople I'll be able to stick with it! I can try to help support you by messaging everyday about each others progress? lol I'm not really sure how these things workout. Whatever happens, good luck with your goal!

Hi! My name is Cayce and I'm a junior at the University of Alabama. I will be 20 at the end of August.
I've joined SparkPeople because I have managed to gain 60 pounds in the past 4 years.
I have been in college for two of those, but the weight gain was half and half, 30 in high school and now 30 in college.
I have no supporters in my decision to lose weight. My family is addicted to unhealthy food, and I can NEVER have anything healthy at all while I am home, which is all the time.
I need a buddy, a friend, a supporter, and someone to lose weight with me!
my current weight is 200, and my long term goal is 130.
Want to be buddies? Send me a message! :D

Hello! I am a sophmore in college. I have been unhappy with my weight since I gained the freshmen 15 and never really got my old body back. I have trouble sticking to dieting, but this summer Im going to be in my cousins wedding, and I dont want to feel self conscious while Im in front of everyone. Basically I want more confidence and to just feel good about my body. Hopefully I can make some progress in the next three months. If anyone wants someone to hold them accountable, I do too so just write on my wall or something!

Hi everyone! I started SP about a month ago, and I'm going to reach my goals of healthier living and a little less of me :) I'm a freshman at a tiny college in North Carolina. I've been working out a lot lately, but I would really love to start P90X if I can get my hands on the DVD's.... Well, if anyone needs an accountability partner or would like to be mine, I'm your girl :) We can all use a buddy, right?

I was that kid that did all the sports growing up and through school, and was devastated when I was told I could no longer workout/do sports for need of a surgery that I couldn't get until I was closer to 18, which was about a year and a half wait plus a six month recovery. Soon after I had the okay to start working out again things kind of went crazy, and I started college.

So now, almost three years since I had to stop working out, I'm trying to get back in shape and lose the weight I gained in the time I was unable to workout. I'm just over 160 right now, and am aiming to get down to 120 before the end of 2012.

Be Fierce. Think Bold.

Hey everyone! My name is Nikki I'm from a small town near Lexington, Kentucky. I'm 21 (will be 22 by the end of the month!) and a happy wife of two years. I'm a junior in college, majoring in History and Sociology.

This is the first time I've used Sparkpeople and so far I have been amazed at all the help that this site offers, as well as, the empowerment that it teaches. With Sparkpeople, I feel that I now have the tools to make a life change! My goal is to be able to run a half marathon with my mom by this time next year.

Hi I'm Katie, and I am a freshman at UW-Oshkosh. I'm a psyhology major with a Women's Studies minor. Sadly, I don't have many friends here, so I figured I should focus my energy on losing weight xD I am hoping to lose about 25-50 pounds, so I can gain more self esteem and self confidence :) If anyone would like to be friends, I would be MORE than happy to talk and go through the journey of weight loss together, because I don't know about any of you, but I need people going through the same thing as me to talk to xD

Hey everyone!
I'm a sophomore at NC State University and I want to lose 25 pounds. I have been a yo-yo dieter my entire life, since age ten, and I just want to get these pounds off for good. When I turn 20 and leave my teenage years behind, I want to also leave behind this weight loss battle and have a healthier lifestyle on into my adult life.

Good Luck Everyone!

Kelly

We can do it!

Hi! I'm Alli. I'm (almost...less than a month) 21 years old, and I am a junior at John
Carroll University. I transferred schools there this year after a bad experience somewhere else that led me to major struggles with anxiety and depression and weight gain. From being 143 pounds senior year of high school, I went up to 175 at my old college. Over the past year, I got down to 154, but I have since gained back a few pounds, and I'm now at 160. I have become much more active then I've ever been by taking up Taekwondo (I'm just over half-way to a black belt) and starting to run. In June I ran my first 5k. My goals are to get down to 135 pounds by this coming June, run a mile in under 10 minutes consistently, and run a 5k in under 30 minutes.

Hello All,

My name is Jordan. I am 21 years old and I am married to my best friend for a little over 2 years now. We have a handsome little boy who is almost 2 years old already!

I use to weigh only 124 pounds. But ever since I had my son that all changed I have gained over a 100 pounds during pregnancy and these past 2 years. It is time to change that big time!

I am very outgoing and fun to be around. I make anyone smile no matter their mood. But with this weight issue I will admit I have not been myself. I am not sure if it is depression or what.

Enough is Enough, I can't wait to share my success with each one of you. We can do anything we put our minds too. I can't wait to meet you and share my journey with you.

Thanks for reading and I hope to talk to you soon :)

Hello everybody, my name is Elisabeth and I am a freshmen in college, hoping to lose weight, and overall just be a healthier, happier person, without failing my classes in the process. I hope I can bring encouragement and support to any and all that need it, because I definitely know how it feels to not have any. I still live at home, but my family members aren't really as concerned with their health as I am. Good luck to all emoticon

Hi Everyone,

I'm Jan-Marie. I'm a graduate student trying to become healthy for the future. I'd love the idea of having support, because while my friends and family support me in my goal, I don't feel like many of them really know what I'm going through.

Hi everyone! My name is Alyssa and I am a 20 year old student at Red Rocks Community College in Colorado. I am majoring in business and currently going for associates of applied science. I am mainly here on SparkPeople to give support to those who need it and receive support for my back issues. I am only trying to lose 10-15 pounds and I am in no rush because I am currently still at a healthy weight. My #1 goal is to live a healthier lifestyle and to wake up feeling good every day instead of achy and restless.

Hi, I'm Holly. I'm in my first year at uni in England. I'm studying Magazine Journalism. My weight has been an issue since forever even when I was a ballet dancer which looking back on it now was stupid as I was so skinny. But whatever. Time to go and lose weight.

It's not about being beautiful or perfect, it's about being the real me.

Hey everyone!

This is my second day on spark! I went from 175 lbs to 145 lbs last year, but recently went back up to 155. It's amazing how LONG it takes to lose and how QUICKLY it all comes back!

I am challenging myself to look and feel great in 2 months (for my birthday) to fit into the red dress (in my picture) without seeing imperfections looking back at me.

I need all the motivation I can get so feel free to friend me so we can keep each other accountable!

I gained 5 pounds as soon as the semester started, and I'm hoping to lose it and then some ^ ^

(I just came here from Sparkteens)

Hellloooo everyone :). My name's Collean. I'm 21 (and loving it, haha) and I'm a Junior @ Quinnipiac University in CT. I lost a lot of weight about two years ago, almost 60 pounds, and gained about 30 of that back. I'm here to make a change again and this time keep it off for real. I just started two days ago!

Hi! I'm Kala, i'm going to be a junior in the fall at SUNY Geneseo. I'm studying abroad in the spring and really want to get into shape before then. Studying in France is the motivation I need to get fit. Right now, it's a bit difficult because I work at a cafe full of chocolaty desserts, does anyone have any suggestions on how to ignore my temptations at work?

Hello everyone

My name is Palmet. I'm about to start school at UEI for Medical Billing and Coding in a few weeks. I feel like this is the time for me to start. What a great way to do it socializing with other people who are doing the same thing. And also I know it would give my mother to stick to something and do the same like she has been planing to. I'm so happy i just came across this page. Also it very exciting to see that there are people out there that want the samething and are willing to support others.

Hey everyone!

My name is Lindsey. I'll be entering my sophomore year at Suffolk University this fall. I have about forty pounds to lose (from around 150 to 110), but I'm living with my grandparents on Cape Cod for the summer to work. I can't wait to get back to Boston and to school, where the fitness equipment is easy to access.

Hey all, I'm Nicolette. I'm completely new to Sparkpeople, I switched over from MFP. MFP has a wayy better app by the way, but it wasn't helping me because I was using it during some rough times. So a fresh new, healthy, start for me here. I've taken some hits in the past from being in a brutal, traditional dance program. Whichhhh I transferred out of, and into theatre. So now I'm just aiming to be healthy and happy!

Definitely add me :)

Hello. I'm starting Shippensburg University in the fall and I want to finally get healthy; oddly enough I think this will be easier without my parents(!). I'm majoring in Biology, and I'm pretty sure people don't want a fat doctor telling them they have heart disease and urging them to lose weight. I hope SparkPeople can help. :)

Hello everyone!

I am going to be a junior at the University of North Texas (GO MEAN GREEN!) in the fall. I am also a mother of 3 all under 10 and work part time. I am trying to shed the pounds yet again. Lack of motivation and time have hindered me in my goals. This time though I have been told that if I don't make some life changes that my overall health and happiness is going to go severely south. So in order to avoid that I am starting by working out and making more time for my man and kids.


I thank you in advance for all of the support I know I will get (been on spark before)!!

THANK YOU!!!!! emoticon

Hello everyone,

I am going to be a sophomore at Northern Michigan University. My freshman year I didn't gain the freshman 15 I lost it until I came home for a couple weekends in a row. I gained all of the weight back plus 5 pounds. I have always struggled with my weight and have tried several time to get it off. This is the time I'm sick of worrying about going out and none of my jeans fitting.
My ultimate goal is to lose about 30 pounds but hopefully 15 just to start.

Smile-it makes you feel better :)

hello everyone (:

I am going to be a sophomore at Purdue in the fall and instead of gaining the freshman 15; I lost it but I want to lose at least 10-15 more but preferably 20 more. I have struggled with being a big girl my entire life and I'm okay with me being a built girl but I want to fit into a size 10 or 8 jean instead of my 12's.

My mom told me about this website after a co-worker of hers told her about it and has dropped a significant amount of weight! I am so ready to get these 20 pounds off!

When i started college, i promised myself the freshman 15 would not get the best of me. Two years later, I'm here, sitting in a room full of clothes that either hide me, or don't fit, the heaviest I've ever been.
i've used spark before, and i've tried dieting and such, but this time around, I'm going to post my progress.
I'm going to take advantage of the community offered through spark, and hopefully, when I'm feeling like quitting, i'll have a few friends on spark to keep me inspired.

Hello People.
From the Uk, I'm 19 and Starting University in September! Studying for a degree in Fine art and hopefully a Diploma in Piano Performace while I'm there.

I was a member of SparkPeople before but I'm here again.
Finally losing weight through Strength and interval training, low calorie diets really don't work for me and it took like 2 years to figure that out.
I'm losing weight but I'm really hoping to shape up a little more before uni.

Hi everyone! I signed up for SP back in January but didn't start actively using it until recently, so I'm still new to it. I'm going to be a sophomore this upcoming fall. I'm pursuing two degrees: Viola Performance and Comparative Literature/Spanish at (maybe minoring in neuroscience?).

I'm trying to lose the weight I gained in sophomore/junior years of high school. Feel free to contact me if you're interested in being buddies or anything!

hi all!
I'm Bekah, I'll be a sophomore at IU in the fall, studying Dietetics. I joined spark because my mom has been really active in it and lost a lot of weight, and since I went to college I gained, you guessed it, the freshman 15. I want to get back to where I was before college and get more toned. I look forward to reaching my goal with the support and motivation from everyone :) Feel free to friend me!

Hi all!
I'm a grad student and all the stress and all nighters has not been kind to my waist line. I put on about 45lbs since I started grad school...granted that's over 5yrs but it's still a lot. Luckily these days I'm making healthier choices.
Juliet, I know you've prolly heard it a lot, but drink lots of water and start walking. Make sure there isn't any hormonal imbalance (get an annual checkup from your doc) and you will surely make progress.
Fee free to add me, more the merrier!!

Hey everyone! I'm just finishing my junior year in college. Normally I'm over in New York City, but I've been abroad in Paris this semester. I'm hoping to lose some of the more excessive habits I picked up while abroad when I get back to the states this summer. Also, i love that John Belushi is this group's profile pic!

Hi everyone! My name's Julia. I'm turning 19 in about two weeks, and I'm a freshman at City College (CUNY). I'm majoring in International Studies and minoring in Spanish. I joined Sparkpeople because it's been working for my mom, and I need to lose about 20 pounds of fat and gain some muscle. I'm not usually self-conscious about the way I look, but I'd like to be PROUD of it! Plus, there's so many cute guys in this city! ;)

Hi everyone! I'm new to SP and thought this would be a fun team to join. I'm actually finishing up college in a couple days, but I figured you were all in my age group, so I thought it would be a good support system. I want to lose 30 lbs and so far, nothing has come off!

Let's see how this goes!

@cinderellinger I know what you mean. I really wonder if the government wants people to be healthy. You can always find some kind of junk for a $1 but let you want to get somethins healthy and it cost an arm and a leg. I am a little low on money myself with moving this upcoming but I had to dig into my saving to buy healthy foods. Other than that my choices would be pretty bad.

I just realized I joined this group while I was still doing my senior year and I never introduced myself! My name is Ashley and I recently graduated from NYU with a BFA. Fast-forward to now where I'm literally so broke that it's hard NOT to eat anything that doesn't come out of a box/fast food restaurant. Nevertheless, I'm still trying to strike a balance so as to achieve a healthy lifestyle on a college-student's budget. Peace!

I'm currently a Junior in college, and my eating habits have gone all over the place.
I think it was the stress from school that caused me to stop exercising and gain 28lbs.
I'm hoping that if I work really hard these next few months I can lose the weight, and feel refreshed and healthy by summer.
I really love SP so far, and can't wait to get to know more people. :)

I have gone back to college to finish my degree. I can't quite get the handle of eating healthy and in a organized fashion while running to classes and keeping up with life.I have put on about 10 pound that I want to lose, but more importantly keep off.
