Hi everybody! I'm still pretty new to SP but I'm loving the community. School starts in 3 weeks and I am not ready at all but I plan to be. It's great that everyone here is a student and committed to improving their health. Keep grinding on and aiming for success in your studies and health!

Hello :) I'm Gabriella and I am about to enter my junior year as a finance major. I somehow miraculously avoided the freshman 15, but that was by pure luck (talk about eating entire pints of Ben & Jerry's chocolate therapy). I gained the sophomore 12 and am determined to gain the junior ZERO. It's tough to exercise and eat healthy in college- looking to gain some motivation from all you wonderful people!

Hi, I'm Hailee! I'm 20, and about to transfer from community college to university. I've gained about 10-20 pounds every year since I can remember. I always said I wouldn't let myself go over 200, but I'm there! I've lived on my own before, and I have an on-campus townhouse with my husband, so I'll be doing a lot of cooking for myself, but I still want to avoid the traditional weight gain that comes with university living. I want to not only put a stop to future gain, but bring my weight far down.

It takes 4 weeks for you to notice your body changing, 8 weeks for your friends to notice, and 12 weeks for the world to notice. Give it 12 weeks.

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!

Hello Everyone!!
I am a 27 Obese Softball Player!! About 2~3 years ago a I dislocated and fractured my ankle which meant I was laid up for a year!! With eating my parents southern cooking did not help any at all so being heave to begin with and to add more on made me obese. With my ankle bothering me I plan to lose 75 + pds and to ultimately get back to playing softball.

I also recently moved into an apartment with my boyfriend and I know it's going to be hard keeping my eating in check with him around.

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?

Hey y'all, I'm Sophie, and am 18, almost 19. I'm from a small town in Iowa, but am attending college at Drexel University in Philadelphia. 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! Just call me Dani and I've been out of the loop of sp for quite a while and now that things have settled I'm ready to get back on track!

I hope to make some friends to share encouragement during studies and get back into a heathier lifestyle. I've gained about 20lbs from my profile picture and I think I realize how important tracking food is!

I'm happily married with two sons and I'm in college studying a lot of science for a lab degree.

Hope everyone has a great and encouraging day! I'm already syked bcuz I finished my final yesterday yay!

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
