I'm a recent engineering college graduate from a college in Boston, MA. Prior to that I'm originally from Springfield, MA. I began using sparkpeople in 2007 while I was attending college in Boston. I've always been active but joined sparkpeolple because I felt a need to develop a challenging and regular exercise routine. I normally use sparkpeople to develop my exercise routines and don't chat on it too often. I currently live in CT as I moved there because I was accepted for a technical position at Coherent in Bloomfield, CT. I've posted armature exercise videos on my facebook to inspire anyone interested. Just send me a friend request, and note to me that you saw me on sparkpeople. Search for me sing my name, and College "John S Watson, Wentworth Institute of Technology".

Hello everyone,

I am a returning user who strayed off the path. I am going to complete a masters degree in August and look forward to focusing entirely on my weight loss goals then. College has always seemed to stand in my way of achieving my fitness goals, but I am excited to finally be finishing school soon!

Hi guys!

I'm Kristin, and I'm a senior majoring in Communication Disorders at a state school in CT. I graduate next spring and the plan is to either go to grad school to become a speech therapist ( first chopice) or get my master of science in special education, concentration autism and ABA therapy

Instead of comparing our lot with that of those who are more fortunate than we are, we should compare it with the lot of the great majority of our fellow men. It then appears that we are among the privileged.

Welcome Newbees. I'm a recent college graduate of Electronics Engineering Technology at Wentworht Institute of Technology. I've been using Spark people since dec of 2010 and it has realy improved my fitness motivation. Good luck if you need any motivation or workout ideals give me a buzz maybe I can help. I've used this site a lot and maybe able to help advice on the best way to utilize it. One thing I can say is joining an exercise group will really be benificial for you.

Hello everyone!
My name is Amy. I'm currently a Sophomore at a small school in Colorado. I'm an Anthropology major and geography minor. I plan on going to graduate school for archaeology. With my classes I have very little time anymore and I've been completely stressed out! So hopefully finding time to get healthier will help the stress levels. Plus I just want to look and feel a lot better starting this summer and the rest of my life!

Hi! I'm Latishia, Lala for short. I'm a sophomore Graphic and Interactive Communications major at Ringling College of Art and Design in Florida. I'm 4'11 and weight more than i did in my life. I know i can lose the weight because i did it before. I will reach my goal of being 128lbs like when i was 16 and lose 20lbs. Maybe i'll get flat defined abs for the first time in my life. Even though it get busy at school i'm going to do exercises no matter what. Thank you and nice to meet everyone! Lets do a good job :)

Hello Everyone,

My name is Jacqueline and I am a University student at the University of Saskatchewan in Canada. I came here to try and get some support in my weight loss ventures. Recently over the summer I moved out on my own and lost 23 pounds but since the school year started again my weight has slowly been creeping up again and I want to get to a much healthier weight than where I am right now. I still have a good 50 pounds to lose before I reach my goal which I am hoping to reach eventually

Hi everyone! My name is Elizabeth, but just Liz is fine! I'm a sophomore undeclared major at Bloomsburg University of PA, living at home with my mom and dad and pets. I went to Clarion University of PA for my freshman year, but I hated being away from home. I was so miserable that I returned home nearly 60 pounds heavier than I was when I left! So, I'm here to get that, plus more, off! :)

Hi. :)
The name is Jordynn. I'm a transfer student at The State University of New York at Potsdam, or SUNY Potsdam for short.

Funny that the first post here is from Bridget at Hope College, the school I wanted to go to in my Senior Year of High School.

Anyway, I'm here at Potsdam for Early Childhood Education. :D

I've been really down lately about my weight and I've been trying to do something about it, but I just don;t have the motivation. I'm always tired and I'd rather sleep than do exercise. I'm hoping this site helps me get some motivation because I need it!

Hi All!
My name is Bridget and I am a freshmen this year at Hope College in Michigan. I am pursuing Theatre and International Studies (this week). I am so ready to get healthy. However, I am balancing a full class load and rehearsals every single night. Its a ton, but my health is important. That is why I'm here! I am looking to lose weight, but more importantly, learn to eat well all the time, not just when mommy cooks good stuff. If you need a friend, hit me up! I am fairly nice :-)

Best of luck to all! We can do it!!!!!
Bridget

Hi, my name is Sami and I am about to be a freshman at Westminster College. Freshman may sound easy but I am also holding down twenty-five hour work week and fourteen credits on top of commuting via public transit, family responsibilities, studying, and trying to figure out if I can have a life in college. Ta-dah. Not difficult but new. Seeing the scale tip less then a month before orientation sucked.

I am looking for motivation. The next few years will be different, I want to get my doctorate, I want to be healthy. Each one starts with a step. Hopefully this is the first one for me.

Hello all. My name is Samantha and I'm a doctoral candidate at The Ohio State University. In addition to my studies I am also a TA (often including lecturing), a debate coach (meaning lots late nights practicing and plenty of weekends on the road), and a research assistant on an NSF grant. On my average day I leave my apartment by 8am and don't get home until 10pm, at which point I still have to do my own research and work on my dissertation. Obviously this all leaves rather little time for me: study breaks are usually to make meals and clean not for exercising.

Speak of me as I am;
Nothing extenuate
Nor set down aught in malice.

Hi everyone!

I'm not new to Spark People, and have tried my best to stay on top of being healthy and logging into Spark People on a regular basis. Unfortunately, between going to school during the day, studying, homework, & working the graveyard shift at night (& not to mention all the different errands & house chores I have to do), by the time I get free time, I'm usually too tired to do any exercising, & just thinking off making a healthy meal makes me even more tired. I realized, though, that all I need to do is better manage my time.

So, I decided I'm going to attempt to work out a better schedule for myself that includes some sort of exercise (even if its just doing something small), and eating better. No more excuses! I need to have stronger will power, and hopefully I will accomplish all the goals I want to achieve.

I hope everyone else on this team and all over Spark People have the same success that I am look for myself. Good luck all!

I am new to this group. I am currently in a master's program for Community Mental Health counseling. I attend St. Bonaventure University. I find it hard to eat healthy meals because I work full-time and do school full-time. By the time I get home at night I don't want to try and cook anything.

Hi! I'm Jessica :) I've been a member of Spark for a while now, but I kind of took a hiatus from it, and now I'm back! I'm currently a student in Aviation Science in SoCal, and I also have the struggle of eating healthy while only having a mini fridge, microwave, and George Foreman grill at my disposal. On the plus side, my campus is very much built on a hill, so I make sure to park at the top, requiring me to walk a good amount uphill each day!

Hi, I'm new to sparkpeople and I'm a really old college student. I go to school full time and then go home and go into mom mode. I could use any good ideas to increase my caloric intake as I only eat once a day. I think thats my problem. Any ideas would be great. thanks Sharon

Hi I am a student at The Evergreen state college in Washington state. I love natural health in moderation but looking for support from other students! I thought I would join a few teams to share support and see if if you would also like to try my team! It was created for Evergreen students but supports a sustainable lifestyle, whether that is natural health, ways to live on a tight budget, the environment, or just plain study support! Let me know if you are interested! I would love to get to know you all! www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_individ

Hey guys! I am a sophmore in College and trying to lose about 30 lbs by christmas. I am an Architect student and hardly sleep and my eating habits are awful. I hardly have time to eat so I usually eat 1 maybe two meals a day. But i eat so much because I feel deprived from not eating all day. And it's usually unhealthy stuff.

I'm sure some of you have noticed that our "team leader" has been inactive for at least 60 days...would any one want to volunteer to take over? I've thought about it but I don't know what being a team leader all entales...maybe I'll ask a leader from another team and see...maybe I'll do it??

Hi I am Brittany and I am a Sociology major in MN and I have a job where I work 15-20 hours a week during school and I find it hard to eat the right things when the bad things are so much cheaper and easier to find/cook. I also find it hard to find time to work out and to get into a routine. I have been trying to get into a routine now while I can before school starts, the struggle will be to try to maintain the routine when classes and studying become priorities.

Hi I'm Renee and i'm a 20 year old developmental psychology student in Maine! I want to lose about 30-35lbs. Right now, being as it's summer time, i'm doing pretty well. i work full time but i'm definitely not as busy as when school starts up. That is where i lose my focus. I like to do really really well and to do that that in my major i need tons of studying time...on top of class time and lab time and homework time...finding almost no time for exercise. I would take my books to the gym but i get sick to my stomach on the machines if i try and do anything and read at the same time. I really want to make time each day to be sure that i'm going to reach my weight loss goal and not ruin it once i get to school.

I'm a full time college student as well. I work 16 hours a week during the school year and I work full time in the summer. I've decided to get my degree in Business Administration but not sure what to pair it with, a minor in accounting or economics or a concentration in management.

If any one is looking for a buddy hit me up!

Hey everyone, Im Jenn! Im 19, I will be a sophomore in the fall, and I go to an itty bitty school in the mountains of North Carolina. I am a poli sci major/Soc minor, and I want to be fluent in spanish by the time I am done with school. I volunteer in my school's admissions office, I have a job in the housing office, and I plan on rushing for a sorority when I get back to school. So I guess I qualify as a busy bee? :P

Basically when I get my degree I want to help and empower people, and in order to do that I need to empower and help myself, and what better way to do it than lose weight? If any of you are looking for a buddy, then hit me up. Im the eternal optimist and I am always willing to give out words of encouragement. I am looking for a buddy with a similar weight loss goal (60 lbs), If you have medical issues messing with that, then I am your girl because I have PCOS and understand how it feels to have health get in the way of weight loss. Good luck with all your weight loss goals! I know you can do it! :D

I think I can, I think I can... Screw that, I know I can!

Hi, my name is Rachel, and I just turned 20. I also just finished my freshman year of college at Concordia Wisconsin, where I am a double music major for piano and organ. I took 21 hours in the fall, 19 hours in the spring, and I work two jobs. Between the homework, practicing, and work, I really let me health slip, and definitely gained the Freshman-15. It's time for a life-style change now, as I'm on the fast track to so many health problems if I don't make that change. Support and encouragement are always appreciated! :)

You can tell how big a person is by what it takes to discourage him. That's the only "big" I want to be. :-)

I'm a 27-year-old female graduate student in sociology. I am originally from an exurban/suburban area in the Midwest, but I now live in a major city. The demands of a grad school program have left me little time to be concerned about my health and lifestyle, which has led to some complications. I'm looking forward to getting things on track.

Hey! My name is Jamie, I am 23 and I attend Indiana Business College-fort wayne location, triple majoring- medical assistant, surgical technologist, medical reimbursement technologist. and i am thinking of going back for nursing. Indiana Business college is very accelerated, and nothing but career focused. I am also a single mom, to a little boy Alexander P. who is my little Hero. My son is the 911 child hero in fort wayne, that made news, so i am pretty proud of him. I guess that incident made me realize what i really need to do, get healthy,and do it in a healthy way. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, singing, dancing and playing pool. excerising i like to swimming, bike riding, rollerblading, sometimes dance. I am looking forward to talking and meeting new people.

Hi, I'm Kaitlyn! I'm a freshman at Stonehill College outside of Boston and I'm a Psychology major (with a potential double in International Studies). Like most college kids, I have a ridiculous amount of work as well as club obligations. I also take dance classes and perform in the semester show. I would love to lose 40lbs and I'm hoping to have lost a substantial amount of weight by the time I go home for the summer.

Hey everyone! I'm Chelsea. I'm a sophomore photojournalism major. I managed to escape the freshman 15 but have been on the chunky side my whole life. Now a semester into my sophomore year, I am really starting to notice my weight. My goal is to get healthy, not skinny. Skinny doesn't really matter but I would enjoy looking and feeling better. Its hard to do being at college without a full kitchen or time to prepare healthy meals.

Hello everyone! I'm Corey at St. Andrews Presbyterian College in North Carolina, but I'm originally from a little town about an hour east of Portland, OR. I'm a senior therapeutic horsemanship major, which means I spend a good chunk of my time giving horseback riding lessons to people with disabilities. On top of classwork, I also ride on my school's Intercollegiate Dressage team, volunteer out at the barn in my friends lessons, teach three classes a week, coach for the dressage team, sing in two choirs on campus and my church choir, and I'm currently playing Columbia in the Rocky Horror Picture Show. WHEW! My days get pretty hectic, and a salad just never seems to sound appetizing when I get into the dining hall. I'm glad to have found SP and this team though, I'm hoping to get myself back on track and lose the weight I've gained over the last few years by eating french fries every day!

Hi, I am abby and decided to come here to eat healthier. I am going to community college and working full-time, so life is very busy. Unfortunately, that means I resort to picking something up on the way because I get tired of eating the same things at home, so ideas would be greatly apreciated.

im a freshman at Cleveland State University, but i will hopefully be transfering soon. I know i've been putting on weight because of the fact im so far away from home (im from NY) and my roommate is a total bitch. Im an emotional eater, and i know i need to buck up and head back to the gym like i used to, i dont know how to stop myself from buying twix and eating chocolate and the school food without salt. So im trying here, to get myself back on track. and im planning on starting my workouts again today :]

Hi there, I'm coming back to SP after lapsing last year. I am now a senior in college, last year I transferred to a new college and the fear and stress of a larger school and different environment aided in me losing sight of my usual routine and I gained back 25 pounds after doing so well. Well now I am back on track and I have lost 8 pounds since starting up a few weeks ago. I now have to learn how to balance school, exercise, eating healthy, working full time and having some time for my family and friends. I have already switched my class schedule so I have more then enough time to work out in the mornings, and this summer I am getting myself in the routine of working out 6 days a week (and I am loving it!). Nice to see there are other folks out there who are trying to balance their school life and their health :)
