My name is Lawrence. I'm a 22 year old, senior from Louisiana. I decided to try SparkPeople out after a good friend told me how it helped her lose weight.
For me, my journey with wanting to lose weight was when I stepped on the scale and it was 250lbs + plus. There was no way that my 5'5 body frame could handle nearly 300lbs. See, I have always been the chubby one out of my siblings. I have always been the "fat kid" throughout my schooling (I dislike the word "fat"). In high school, I went on a diet and lost a lot of weight. I was about 170lbs in high school, but I gained all of the weight back after Hurricane Katrina.
I told myself that I was going to lose weight while in college. Well, losing weight in college never happened.
Now, I am a senior at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, LA. I have decided to actually give SparkPeople a chance and see how it works for me. I'm 217.4lbs and carry about 30% body fat. My goal is to live a healthier lifestyle. I would love to be fit by the time I enter law school, which will be in fall 2010.
My first goal is to be down 50lbs by Jan. 1, 2010. SparkPeople set my actual ending goal date at Dec. 27, 2009. I will see how it turns out. Hopefully, I will have the help of great people like you to keep me "sparking" strong!

    You have a very common-sense approach to life - very mature for one "so young" AND male to boot (I mean that in the nicest possible way ;-) Good luck with your journey, and glad to have you on board.
