My name is Sarah and I'm overweight. Ever since puberty, I've struggled to keep the weight off. I've used SparkPeople off and on and am coming back to it because I want help to lose the weight I need to in order to be healthy. I know I will always have help from SparkPeople and I am very grateful that this program is here and free. My goals are very important to me. I know that I'll be able to feel accomplished in reaching my ideal weight goal if I gain the confidence within myself to never give up. We'll see. Feel free to contact me and help me reach my goals.

My Goals:
I want to be able to live a healthy lifestyle that also opens up opportunities to be more active like I was in high school. I want to be able to have a regular workout routine. I want to be able to feel better about the way my body looks.

My Program:
I'm writing in my journal my concerns and motivating myself through the reading of articles that are full of health facts. I have started eating right by using the SparkPeople site. I'm also going to continue to track my food everyday to keep myself motivated to meet the required amounts of calories/fats/carbs/protein. It's exciting to work towards something I have passion about. I'm a very passionate person and find that I should've made this apart of my life a long time ago.

Personal Information:
My name is Sarah. I live in Birmingham, Alabama. I'm originally from Las Vegas, Nevada. I decided to come back to Alabama to live closer to my family and to go back to school. My email address is

Other Information:
I love music. I love to sing. I love art. I'm at art major at UAB studying Graphic Design. I'm not the type of person that follows a crowd. I stand out and I don't want to stand out as an overweight talent. I go by this quote: "Any transition serious enough to alter your definition of self will require not just small adjustments in your way of living and thinking but a full-on metamorphosis."

    Hi There. I didn't do so well on Nutrisystem. I was all gung-ho for it at first and it was working well, I lost seven pounds the first week. Then after that, all the food started tasting the same, and there are still some of the meals that I just can't make myself open and try. I still have about a month's worth of food that I keep telling myself I'll eat someday since I paid for it and it's taking up a lot of space. I really can't just throw it away.
