Hey y'all. My name is Sarah and I'm 18. I don't really need to loose any more weight I just need to be healthier. I have been sitting on my butt and shoving junk food down my throat for probably 6 years. Luckily I have high metabolism so I only have a little bit of pudge but anyway I get unmotivated really quickly and I get distracted very easily(very severe case of ADHD) I love food unfortunately would love a texting Buddy seeing as how i dont get emails on my phone. I work at Hardees and I like our food which does not help. I do walk home almost every day though. I love to be weird and have fun and am overall a very peppy and bubbly person(my friends call my their personal ray of sunshine) I love anime and reading so that might help I don't know. I ramble alot (obviously :D) I live in Georgia and am trying to decide what to do about the rest of my life since I dont have a plan and probably never will. Talk to me? I love friends.

Hi everyone, I'm a 20 year old female looking for email or whatsapp style contact for support in weightloss as I live in New Zealand. My goals are to maintain a healthy diet and exercise. How much you have to lose doesn't matter but I prefer if you are around the same age as myself. Sparkmail me if you're interested!

Hi everyone! I would like email buddies. I live in Ukraine so between the time difference and the cost for me to text internationally, email works best for me! If we build up a good rapport, I might be up for skype chatting. I am 29 and right now I have 15 lbs I would like to lose (but I have already lost 42 lbs, so even if our numbers are not the same I am open to pretty much any buddy!) Excluding vacation time, I am planning to log into SP every day, so I will do my best to be an accountable buddy!

Hi. My name is Angie, and I live in Canada. I am going to be 40 soon..aaaahhh!!!! Ok, got that out of the way. I am really hoping to find someone to text with? or email? I would appreciate talking to someone who is struggling with the same weight loss goal that I am. I wanted to lose 60 pounds by the time I turn 40, but that is in October, so not too sure it can happen. I have 4 children, and work 30+ hours a week, and find that I just don't have much spare time. If you are looking for someone to just talk to, or to help provide motivation and encouragement, I would love to talk. Just sparkmail me, and we can figure things out!!!

Hi, I'm Natalie and I'm 21 years old. I'm looking for a texting weight loss buddy, just cause I think it's so much easier to update each other on the go. I have a problem with binge and emotional eating and put on about 25 pounds after high school. It doesn't really matter how much weight you have to lose; as long as you're looking to live a healthier lifestyle, I want to be there to support you! If we both have weekly/daily goals, it would be nice to let each other know when we achieve them. We can also motivate each other to workout and eat healthier. Please send me a sparkmail if this sounds good. I promise it'll be beneficial for both of us!

Hello, I'm Heather. I'm 33 (almost 34) and would like to lose at least 50lbs. I figure if I can get there I'll see if I want to lose more. I am married and have three children ranging in age from 7 - 12.
I live in Bremerton, WA. I'm looking for a buddy to help be more accountable. Someone via emails would work best for me because of my busy schedule or if anyone lives in the area we could workout together. We are members of the Haslewood YMCA. If no one is local, an email buddy would work perfect.
My sister is getting married some time at the end of this year and I believe she is going to make me wear a dress (I haven't worn one for almost ten years.) So I would like to make my goal by the end of the year if possible.
Feel free to add me as a friend and let me know if you would like to work together.

I'm looking for a spark buddy, any age but around my weight or higher. I would like to be able to email through SP and personal email. I can't text because where I live there is no cell reception. I'm a food addict and need some accountability to keep me on track. I have been with SP for almost 7 years and through all the ups and downs I am back where I began.

Hi everyone! I'm hitting the big 3-0 next May and i'd like to be in the BEST shape of my life by then. I've always had issues with my weight and I'm wanting to get a handle on it so I can be an example for my daughter(2, turning 3 in November). I live in the Houston, TX area and would love a text buddy if possibly.
My workout plan is as followed: Mon, Wed, Fri-Treadclimber for 45minutes Tues, Thurs, Sat-ZUMBA for an hour
Sunday obviously is a rest day and so I can veg out with my munchkin. I have about 65lbs to get rid of-Thanks, Traci!

Hello Everyone! A texting buddy would be awesome. I am a mother of 3, and a wife. I am about to be 38 years old. I have just finally snapped into reality that if I don't do something about my weight now, I never will. I live in the Indianapolis, IN area, but open to a texting buddy anywhere. I would be nice to have someone going through the same struggles to talk or text to.

Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character: it becomes your destiny.
