Hey guys, I'm Michelle. I'm 19 and I just finished my freshman year of college. I've not been very active the last several months due to a knee injury back in September 2012. I got surgery in March of this year and I'm finally recovered enough to slowly ease back into physical activity this summer. My challenge now is to find the right balance between working hard enough to make progress but not pushing so hard that I re-injure myself.

I'm Jenna, and just finished my freshman year at Marietta College. I didn't gain the freshman 15, but I DID gain the freshman 5, so I want to lose that and a bit more before school starts up again. Hopefully it's a great summer!

Hi, I'm Rachel, I'm a freshman at Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville, first semester I did pretty well at fending off the freshman 15, even lost about 10 pounds, since coming back this semster, things are moving the opposite way. I'm looking to not only keep off the freshman 15, but also lose a significant amount of weight in the next year.

Hey Everyone! I'm Rayma and am currently a second semester sophomore in college. I gained my "freshman 15" first semester sophomore year (oh, the irony lol) and am working out to lose my 15 and establish a healthy lifestyle. I am also training myself to run a 5K by May (hopefully be able to run it in 30 minutes), so any fitness tips would be great! Glad to meet everybody and good luck as we reach our goals!

Hello everyone, my name is Tia and I go to college in Oregon. My boyfriends professor told him about this website and I decided to join to because I've gain TEN POUNDS since I graduated college. Hopefully this group helps me get back on track.
Hey my name is Heather and I'm a second year at UC Santa Barbara. I'm using sparkpeople to try and get back in shape more than to lose weight. The nutrition tracker is so helpful when it comes to getting back on track food wise. I realize that I had been consuming way more calories than I needed to! That's the college life for you!
