Hi there! My name's Joann and my fiance is actually my inspiration for starting to live a healthier lifestyle. We met while we were both overweight, and he has reached milestone after milestone - quitting smoking, losing a great deal of weight, gaining muscle tone, and achieving a BMI in the "normal weight" category for the first time in his adult life - while I've been casting along behind him. We both support each other in this journey but he's applied himself much more in the past year than I have. I've joined SparkPeople to change that.

Hey, my name is Michelle. I am a 21-year-old college student in California. I have used SparkPeople before (for varying reasons). Currently, my intention is to lose 59lbs so I can enter a police training academy. I hope Sparkpeople will help keep me focused and give me tools to be successful.

I have been overweight for a couple of years but haven't been as motivated to lose weight til now (due to the academy). My boyfriend, Zack, always tells me I am beautiful and I don't need to lose weight for him to think so. However, he is very supportive. The moment I told him about the police training academy possibly happening this year, he immediately said he would help make that happen in any way he can. We have decided to be workout buddies. I hope we can help each other accomplish both of our goals (he wants to lose about 20lbs).

What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail? - Unknown

Hi! This looks like an awesome group.
I am Elizabeth and I am a senior studying marketing at Clemson. My boyfriend (Denny) and I have been dating for about about 7 months. He is pretty much amazing! Fortunately for him he was blessed with an awesome metabolism and athleticism. He plays hockey for Clemson as well as going to grad school here. He has an AWESOME body and is into being really healthy. When we first began dating I was not skinny by any means (about 200) but since then I have gained around 20 lbs. I want to have a healthier lifestyle mainly for me (because I know he will be there for me no matter what!) but also because I want to live healthy/be active like he is.
We run our first 5k together (and his first ever, period.) in March. The Color Run, whooop! And we have Spring Break, my sorority formal, and then summer time! So basically, it is time to kick it into high gear!

Hi everyone! My name is Kimberly. I have a wonderful boyfriend named Kyle. We've known each other for 2.5 years, but we just started dating about 3.5 months ago. Both of us are more motivated to get in shape as of recently, and I really want to make him proud. Wish me luck! (:

Hey! My name is Jessica and I'm 20 years old. My boyfriend of 2 1/2 years is a kickboxer and is so unbelievably fit! I'm so jealous of his willpower to workout and eat healthy. Because he's fit he's a great supporter with awesome advice. He helped me get on track and stay on track, and we jog sometimes together but I can't keep up haha, he's too fast. Anyway, we're going to Miami this summer so I want to look as good as him on the beach! (:

If anyone wants to add me to chat for advice and support, go ahead! I love meeting new people on here (:

Hi Guys - What a great group!
I'm not very familiar with how these message boards work but I'm Hannah, I'm also 22 and been with my boyfriend for 2 years.
I think it is being comfortable in a relationship that makes you gain weight - eating out, dates at the movies...so I am determined to be back to my pre-dating weight!!

What I really struggle with at the moment is intimacy, I am not comfortable with my body anymore and this is really intruding on our relationship as my boyfriend insists he loves me no matter what...im just uncomfortable with how i look - does anyone else have this dilemma, or a way of getting over it?!

Thanks guys :)

Hannah xxx

Hi there everybody! My name is Rachel and I am 22 years old. My boyfriend and I have been together for a little over 2 years now and we just moved in together this summer. Since we started dating, I gained about 15 to 20 pounds. I was never very skinny to begin with, but now I am determined to lose all of this weight and finally have the confidence I never had and feel fantastic as well! =)

Hello everyone! My name is Sarah and I am 21 years old. I have a great job and a great boyfriend whom I love very much. Things couldn't be any better, right? Wrong. Since my high school graduation I have gained over 100 pounds. The freshman 15 became more like the freshman 50. The 50 gradually melted into 75 pounds, and so on.

I did okay for a little while losing weight on my own. I ended up dropping a good little chunk of weight, was feeling really good about the progress I had made, and was able to snag back the boy who got away. 7 months later... And we are happier than ever and continue to grow more and more serious. We've even quit smoking together for each other. And that's when all the weight started to come back.

I think my wake up call came though when I was helping a guest at my hotel and they asked me how far along I was in my pregnancy, because I looked like I was "Getting there". I am really ready to shape up and be healthier.

Hi ladies. I'm Katie and I've been browsing through SparkPeople for a while, but I've finally decided to commit. I've been with my boyfriend for 2 1/2 years, and in that time, I've gained almost 40 lbs, putting me at my heaviest weight ever. Lucky for me, my man has stuck around the whole time! I'm hoping to be as supportive as I can to anyone and everyone, and meet some new friends on this sure-to-be crazy journey!!

Hi all. I'm from cali moving to Montana for school. I joined Sp cause I needed that little bit of support this site can offer, well lots of support actually. One main reason I want to get in shape is for my boyfriend, even though he says I'm perfect I want to be able to agree.

Hi!
I've just joined spark people and loving it! I live with my boyfriend in Australia, we've been together for 3 years, and I work full time at a motorcycle shop doing graphic design and advertising!

I'm trying to get fit and healthy as well as balance everything else that’s going on in my life and it seems to be pretty hard so far. Especially when my boyfriend has a super fast metabolism and his favourite past time is to drink beer, watch tv and eat junk food!
I’m also looking forward to meeting some new people :)

Hi, I last used spark people almost 8 months ago- I moved into a new place and only just got internet. I've never connected in well with the community- don't really know where to start so thought i'd post something here and hopefully get to know a few others :)

Look straight ahead, and fix your eyes on what lies before you. Mark out a straight path for your feet; then stick to the path and stay safe. Dont get sidetracked.

Hello I'm new to the group and have been dating my boyfriend for 2 years. I have taken on some male eating habits that have made me gain weight on top of the fact I was already overweight for starters. I want to get healthy. We both want to, but I want to choose my own road in this. Hopefully you ladies will be a help and encouragement to me and I can be one in return

Ahoy! I'm Nicole and I joined this group bc it looks like the most active one in the dating scene! But fair disclosure, I do not currently HAVE a bf. In fact, that's the reason I'm finally serious (!!!!) about getting fit.

I have, of course, a guy in mind. I've struggled with this bc even to me, it sounds stupid. We've never met, but communicate often for professional reasons. He lives 1,000+ miles away. His character and his brilliance are even more stunning than his looks. He is, in short, all but unattainable. But we're gonna meet, probably within the year, and so far we do get along really well.

So I keep thinking, wouldn't it be a shame if the reason he's not attracted to me is because I'm hiding some pretty great-looking stuff underneath 35 lbs of fat and flab? Or wouldn't it just BLOW if he overlooks that, and we do start seeing each other, but I literally cannot keep up with him in his active lifestyle? And isn't it just WRONG that I won't even Facebook friend this guy because I don't want him to judge me based on my fat pics?

So I'm here not just because I wanna join your ranks as a girlfriend, but also because if I get rejected, I want to know I was rejected on the merits. Dude knows some of the most gorgeous, brilliant, kindest women on Planet Earth, and maybe he won't pick me. Fair enough. But dammit, I'm not gonna lose because I'm too fat and lazy!

Hi! I'm Kelly and I'm 21. I've been with my bf for 9 months, which is the longest ever. I met him when I was 135, exercising all my stress to a perfect body. Now, with him in my life, I have less stress. I still binge weekly, but not to the same extreme. Now, however, I hate the gym. I went from going religiously every day to hating it. I do the SP boxing videos or FreeStep on my Wii, but I'm still up at 155. I think about how long ago I met Bf and I think "20 lbs ago". Sad.

He says he doesn't care. All that he cares is that I am not stressing and that I am happy. Looks don't matter. He's weighs less than I do, at the same height. And he's all muscle. So I dwarf him. I've got curves, but still look athletic. I'm not over a healthy BMI. I just want my old body back! So now, after 4 days of binging and 3 years of dieting, I am trying SP for the 7th time. It worked in the past, getting me to 135 over a year ago, and it'll work again. It has to!

Let's stick together and not let body image issues mess up our relationships. Our men love us and we need to learn to love ourselves as well!

I'm making a new start on SparkPeople. I'm 26 years old and I've been with my boyfriend 3 1/2 years. He is extremely supportive and tells me I'm beautiful, but I'd like to lose some weight so I can feel as beautiful as he tells me I am. I owe it to him and to myself to be healthier and happier and the only way to do that is to make it happen.

Hey! I'm Jess. I'm not new to Spark, but I'm new to the whole sparkteam thing. Never been able to find a team that was active enough. Hopefully this place is different.

I want to slim down and tone up (maybe lose 10 lbs?), but my real focus is just having a nice toned body. I've been with my boyfriend for 6 months and we're planning a trip to Cuba sometimes after Christmas. Definitely want to amp up the workouts before the trip.

Also if anyone wants to talk on msn, send me a sparkmail.

Hi! I'm Rhosyn2 and new to Spark People, this looks fantastic and I can't believe I haven't heard of it before! I was excited to join this group because one of my main motivators is feeling sexy and, of course, looking hawt for the boyf. I would like to lose 14 lb to prove to myself that I can do what I set out to do, and to hear him say, "WOW, beautiful!".
Look forward to seeing you around,

Hey guys!
I've been on this site for a few months now off and on but decided to get more involved with new groups and this one seems great!
Everyone seems very nice!
So My name is Brittany and I'm 22 years old. I'm in college for early childhood education and child and youth worker in hopes to own a day care.

I have been with my boyfriend for 6 months but we have been best friends since we were 14 and never would admit we liked each other until this past May when we got together for my birthday after I had finally left a guy that never deserved me. My boyfriend is amazingly supportive and even though he knows I'm not small enough he never makes me feel ugly or unwanted. He's the most amazing man I could ask for and even without him I would still continue to lose weight but I would rather be even more attractive to him and that would happen with more weight loss.

I hope to hear some amazing stories and challenges from everyone! :)
Have a great day!

Hi. I'm new. I hate the whole introduction thing but I'm gonna get this over with. I've been with an amazing guy for almost 2 years now! He's the best thing that has ever happened to me. Big possibility of getting engaged soon. :D And I'm looking at losing weight so I won't feel that stress while going through school and getting ready for the wedding. I want to be healthy before I have a reason to get healthy! lol. In need of some motivation and such. I'm glad that there are groups that relate to individuals on more than one level. It's awesome!

My name's Leah. I'm 30, I live in Jacksonville, FL, and I'm eating half a chicken sandwich as I write this, go me.
Towering at 5'3", my highest weight was around 145-150. Over the past year or so, I've lost 20 pounds, bringing me down to 120 on decent days and 119 on awesome days. My goal is 110, but these last few are the hardest to go. I'm motivated both by general health and fitness (doing weights have really increased my body consciousness, in a good way) and basic female self esteem: I've never been pretty-skinny. At best, I'm "healthy," with too much tummy.

I have a boyfriend of 6 months (that makes him sound like a puppy, doesn't it? or a baby) who is effortlessly beautiful and fit and could probably do P90X in his sleep. I'd like to look good for him, and for myself, but most of all for Robert Downey Jr, who I'm certain will love me back if he only meets me once.

Hi all! My name is Lauren, and I'm so glad to have found this team. My boyfriend Mark and I have only recently made our relationship "official," but we've been friends for over 11 years. He's in the Navy, and I want to be able to keep up with him, so I think this is the perfect team to find encouragement and motivation. :)

Hey guys! I'm new to the team & semi-new with SP. I'm 19 and from Minnesota, where I go to the U of M! I've been with my boyfriend for 4 years and he is a total diet disaster! When we started dating I weighed 120 and now I'm at 150, so that's 30lbs in 4 years! I'm trying to get down to a healthy weight of around 130 by my birthday in late december. I'm so happy this group is out there, we girlfriends need support too! :)

Hi girls! I'm relatively new to Spark and am on here to lose a little of the extra weight, be great and toned and keep up with my amazing fit, handsome boyfriend of over 13 months. He's the man of my dreams and instead of slacking as I get more comfortable around him, I actually work harder to look better for him. We have made a pact to be the hottest couple out there and as a 24 year old and 30 something man who gets carded when he goes out with me, I think we're doing pretty good but there's always room for improvement. Feel free to push me when I'm slacking and check out my blog (for the more personal stuff) and message board journal (for the daily breakdown) anytime...both links are in my signature. Keep up the great work lovely ladies! It's great to be a part of this team!

Hey Gals :-) My name is Brittany and Im 20 years old. Ive Been with my guy, Jason for over 4 years! Its gotten to where I have gotten so comfy that I tend to over eat when we go out and things and as a result I have put on alot of weight during these 4 years. I love him so much and I want to just look great and be healthy for him and myself!

Hi, I'm Lisa. I just joined up yesterday but was so busy with Easter, I didn't have time to introduce myself!

I'm 26, live in Massachusetts and have a boyfriend of 9 mos who lives about 45 minutes away from me, until I get a job again and move up where he is.
Happy to be here!

Hi everyone,

I'm Leona and I'm 24. I live with my boyfriend in Montgomery, AL but I'm originally from Upstate New York and he is from Maine. We met at a party at his college while I was visiting a high school friend. We have two "kids": a dog, Jake, and a cat, Scotch.

Just wanted to say good luck to all!

Hi I'm new and I wanted to introduce myself. I'm 24, almost 25 and in a wonderful relationship. I'm very critical of myself though and want to be in better shape than I am. My boyfriend and I also love doing pin up style photography shoots and I want to look/ feel better for these. I think recently I've gained some weight or lost some tone and I feel a lot more insecure. So thank you all for a wonderful community and support and I'm looking forward to contributing!

Hi! I'm Kimberly. I'm 25, 26 in another month. I'm from Upstate New York and I'm a high school teacher. My boyfriend and I have been together for almost a year now. We are moving in together this April/May. I would like to lose some weight for a couple of reasons:
#1 Simply to feel better
#2 I feel sluggish
#3 I've gained weight since going on the pill
#4 When we move in together I want to have healthy eating habits in place for both of us, seeing as how I will be the one cooking.

Hi there. My name is Connie and I live in Orlando FL. My boyfriend and I met while living in Jacksonville and have been together for 2 years. We moved down here together last year and that's when the weight I lost last year came right back on. So now it's time for me to start over and continue my weight-loss journey with or without his help. I currently work part time and go to school part time as well. We're also trying to buy a house since our lease is up here soon. It's crazy around here but I'm very determined to get healthy and look my best!

I'm new, (obviously) and I've found out over the past couple of months that having a boyfriend who goes through food like an express train through a tunnel is not conducive to keeping the pounds off.

So here I am, looking forward to being fit for probably the first time in my life, with the promise of looking good in lingerie to boot. emoticon I'm really hoping that this time I can stick to a diet and exercise plan, and I'm hoping that you and spark can help.

Welcome to the group! Being so busy you don't know which way is up half the time seems to be a common factor for us girlfriends! My current relationship was a LDR for almost 4 years, so I totally know where you're coming from there. Hope you enjoy the team, and best wishes on your weight loss!

Hello,
Thanks for making this group available. I am currently in a long distance relationship, I am caring for an elderly parent, and I am trying to get through grad school while maintaining my sanity. I greatly look forward to the informational exchange. Enjoy your weekend.

Alot of you are a lot younger than I but I use to have a great social life and always had a steady boyfriend then my life started falling apart. My mother and father died just weeks of each other. My fiance' left me at my mothers funeral three weeks before our wedding and I was 4 month preg. Then my next real boyfriend cheated on me twice and I started my own business bought a new home and lost it during 9'11. I never had a weight problem, was always 98 lbs.... until my second child now I'm almost twice that. Alot of stress obviously. I have been in major denial. For a while I actually liked the little extra weight... (got boobs) then it became more and more.... I haven't dated (or had sex) in 11 years. now I'm desperate for health and appearance reasons. And i feel if I don't loose the weight I will never date again. My family has written me off in that area. I'm now considered "the poor over weight pathetic one" I HAVE TO DO THIS! Thanks for listening..... Feels good to vent LOL

Hi Mandy, and welcome to the team! It's really hard when you can't be with your BF as much as you want (I was in a long-distance relationship for almost 4 years and it was nuts!).

This group is an awesome place for support - especially dealing with the "feeling frumpy next to him" stuff. Take care, and I'm looking forward to getting to know you!

Hi there : )

My name is Brittany and I am 19 years old. I joined this group because it seemed perfect for me! Im trying to balance my life, health, work and the love of my life.

My boyfriend, Jason, says he loves me just the way that I am, and I di believe him. Yet, I just want to be healthier, to loose my extra pounds, so that I actually believe him when he says im Beautiful.

So..

HI !!!

:) UHM. Hi there.
I am completely new to this Sparks, so please, bear with me.

I also, am a girlfriend trying to lose weight.
Because I feel bad for him, always listening to my complaining and stuff.
And me ignoring the compliments he does try to give me,
because I am convinced they are not true thanks
to the number on the scale.

I want to do this to be happier for myself,
and so I will have a better attitude around him.
It will just be win/win. :)

Annnnd I want to feel like I deserve him.
Gosh darn, it's HARD dating a legit boy made of BONES!

Welcome! You know, I've found that when I get comfortable in a relationship, it's really easy to start packing on the pounds. I have a lot of trouble getting it off. No suggestions for you other than perhaps eat out less (that tends to be my problem in relationships!) and cut your portion sizes down.
