Hey Michelle. I'm 23 years old and my 24th birthday happens to be my golden birthday this year on August 24th. It's nice to find someone my age. I need a buddy too. I've been off and on with Sparkpeople for a long time now, and I'm ready to make the change. My biggest inspiration is my twin sister. She lost 50 pounds last year and is now a marathon runner. I'm very jealous, and I want to take charge of my weight like she did. I have about 70 pounds to lose so obviously I'm a little nervous, but this website has helped tremendously. However, the one thing I always shyed away from was the interaction. I did all the article readings, trivia questions, polls, etc... but I never talked to anyone. I've changed that this time, and it's making a huge difference. I feel as if others are watching. They depend on me, and I depend on them. Please stay with it because you deserve it, and quite frankly the more people I can look to for inspiration, the better. :)

Hi! My name is Michelle, I'm 24 yrs old. I need a buddy that will keep me encouraged to workout. I'm the heaviest I've ever been and I want to change that. But I know in order to do that I need someone to encourage me to stick with a good workout. I want to lose weight, eat better and workout daily. I have asthma so it's hard to do a lot of stuff and being over-weight makes it harder. I want that to change!
