Hey everyone. I'm 18 and I'm a freshman at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire. I haven't declared my major yet, but I'm hoping to get a Neuroscience major and Philosophy minor. Weight first became an issue for me in high school, when I took on more than I could handle academically and didn't know how to manage my stress. I was diagnosed with Major Depression in 10th grade, and although I'm not being treated for it anymore, I still struggle a bit with the same issues. Emotional eating has become a big problem for me, and I have continued to gain weight since I started college, so I just want to defeat the bad habits I've contracted once and for all.

Hey guys!

I'm a college sophomore in Chicago, and I've been heavy since I was 8 or 9-ish. A few diets have worked in the past, but nothing to keep the weight off for good. I don't want to start the rest of my life post college as the same un-healthy girl I was in high school. So I'm looking forward to my future weight loss and life-style goals.

Howdy! I'm Ann, a senior in engineering at a school in Southern California. While I've always had a problem with my weight, I've decided that before I really begin my "adult life" I want to get fit and really live up to my full potential. Graduating in spring will be a nice break for me, and I hope to use my free time doing healthier activities and gaining healthier habits.

Don't get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.

Be a fruit loop in a world of cheerios.

It takes 4 weeks for you to notice your body changing, 8 weeks for your friends to notice, and 12 weeks for the rest of the world to notice. Give it 12 weeks. Don't quit.

Hi, I'm Christina. I am a sophmore in college in NJ. I'm majoring in pre-med Biology and taking currently 18 credits while dorming, and balancing a social life, while trying to lose weight. I could probably use some support, maybe just a few positive messages emoticon

Hi! I'm Addy. I'm 21, and a double major in sociology and theatre. Trying to lose weight for a role, but for me too. I've struggled with eating disorders most of my life that have actually led me to gain weight instead of lose. So I'm trying to do this the healthy way. I could definitely use some support. =)

Hi everyone, my name is Lindsay, I'm a sophomore Spanish-Education major at UW-Madison. I somehow managed to make it through freshman year without gaining the freshman 15, but I definitely have huge issues with binge eating, self-confidence and motivation. I also have seriously high cholesterol and a family history of heart disease. I can't wait to join with you all in getting fit and healthy!

Hi my name is Brianne. I'm 18 and am a freshman in Economics at Kansas State University. I was a varsity cross country runner and swimmer in high school, but dining hall food and college makes it difficult to continue living healthily. I joined to help track how I was doing and meet other people who share the same goals!

Hi, I'm Shannon. I'm a freshman music education major with a concentration in saxophone, though I'm considering musical theater for my graduate degree. I joined Sparkpeople in November because although I'm pretty happy with my weight, it's easy to start eating badly in college. I also wanted to start a consistent exercise program (which has been an issue for me because I have almost no time to work out because of my major.)

Hi, I'm Sam. I am a sophomore Biology major. I have been heavy since I was about eight and in the past few years it got really bad. College is the perfect place to find out who you are, and I found out that I don't want to be big anymore. I already lost about 30 pounds so here we go!

Hi! I'm Nina. I'm a full time college student studying Psychology, married with one son. I'm striving to lose some serious poundage for my health and so I can live to see my grandchildren some day. I've experienced both of my parents having heart attacks and I realized if I don't change that will be me too, so that is a BIG motivator.

Hello everyone! I'm junior mechanical engineering major. I'm on the varsity swim team at my school and i'm ending my swim career at the end of this season (T-minus 2 weeks). Competitive swimming tends to make females, namely me, big. I would really like to slim down as the pressure to constantly lift and stay muscular disappears, but that's the only way i've ever worked out... plus i'm used to eating 3000+ calories/day.

Hey everyone! I am a junior elementary education and special education major. I have struggled with my weight all my life, and college certainly hasn't helped much. Between classes, working, and other activities, there just doesn't seem to be enough time in the day to work out. I am ready to make some big changes though!

Hello! I go to school full-time, I double major in Psychology and Biology with an emphasis in Pre-med. I am also the mom of a 4 year old and am currently engaged to be married in 2012. I also work part-time at a hospital, despite the business I am pretty happy about my life, minus my weight. My weight is the only bane of my existence, if I can get ahold of this 10+ year battle, maybe I'll someday succeed!

Hello All, I'm Paul. I've got two degrees from Clemson in Genetics and Microbiology and am currently at UGA working on my PhD. My last year at Clemson I put on ~30lbs from my 'normal' weight and cleared 200 after I stopped playing lacrosse and running. I've since been working on getting back into shape, but as I'm sure you all know, school seems to disagree with that fact. Been sticking with SP (which my fiancee got me into) for a week and have really enjoyed it. Looking to get back into shape, drop a few pounds, and shape up for my wedding in July. Wish you all the best in your own efforts and goals as well.

Go Tigers!
Go Dawgs!

Hi Everybody,
I'm Melissa, I am a junior at the University of Arizona, majoring in Physiology. I've been with SP for a few years now, but have never really put all that much thought/energy into it. So this time I want to be successful and go from 175 to 150 by my 21st b-day in March and lose and another 20-25 lbs by summer. First step actually get involved in the SP community :) Wishing you all the best of luck with your goals here as well as all your academic goals. Go Wildcats!!

Hello fellow college students! I'm Hannah and I am a freshmen this year, with an undeclared major (still experimenting on what I really wanna do with my life). Anyway, I just did an ab workout on youtube from sparkpeople and decided to check out their website.5 minutes later, I am now a member! I want to lose about 15 lbs since that freshmen 15 is hitting me. Its great to find this support from other people in the same boat :) So good luck to you all and I hope we all reach our goals!!

Hi! I am a Criminology/Psychology double major and am in my freshman year. I was so happy to find this page! I have a few difficulties, first I quite playing hockey my junior year of high school and gained a boyfriend who can eat anything, I've gained over 25 pounds over the last year. I'm excited to see that there are other college kids looking for support, its really what I need. I've been so de motivated and feeling bad about myself and I'm done with that! can't wait to get to know people!
