I'm 52 years old, I need a partner to help me with my goals. I have no children living in my house to chase anymore and I'm currently not working and can't find anyone who shares my goals and who lives near me in Az to go for walks. So I need to do this with a partner on Sparks.

Please Help me keep track!

Hey all! emoticon

I'm a thirty-four year old female looking to lose some weight and make some friends! Ever since college, I've fluctuated somewhere between 165 and 175 (size 12-14). About two years ago, I got my weight down to 148 and I was so happy!! And then it started creeping back on. I have spurts where I'll go to the gym everyday and keep track of what I'm eating... But then I lose momentum. I'm kind of an all or nothing gal. If I blow it one day by eating one thing I shouldn't, I tend to make it way worse by thinking, "Well, I've already screwed up by having that cupcake, I might as well have another... and ice cream... and twizzlers, etc. etc."
II was astonished to see that I weighed over 180 after our summer vacation. I would love love love to get down to 145 and fit into size 10 clothes!! That would be amazing! I'm looking for someone with similar struggles to help me stay on track and of course, I'll help you too! Looking forward to getting started!

Hello There! My name is Marie, I'm 27 years old, I've been a member of Spark off and on for a little over a year. After moving to Milwaukee June 2012 I slowly started gaining weight -- first 5 lbs, then 10, now 15! I had struggled for the last two years to keep my weight down at 137 and now I weigh a little over 150. Haven't changed the ticker because it's too hard to face! Anyhow, I have started exercising again and tracking food. Would really like to get this weight off before winter comes and I have to go back to the gym.

Since it's summer and I've suspended gym membership my main two forms are exercise are bike riding and walking/jogging. I've started doing the latter with a friend in the evenings, which I will this evening, and already rode 10 miles in 45 minutes today. Anyone similar looking for a buddy?

My name is Sherri and am currently looking for a partner to help me keep on track and to hold me accountable for my weight loss. I live in northeast Ohio and am trying to squeeze in workouts when I can. The weather is often a factor as it always changes along with my work schedule. I enjoy riding my bike and am trying to squeeze in long walks when I get out of work a little early.

I am 35 with 2 small children(3 and 5) and a wonderful hubby. I live in a small town in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina. i am looking to loose weight, build friendships and encourage others and lots of support! I work full time as the Practice Administrator for a medical office.

Over the last year with the help of a weight loss clinic I lost 60lbs, but after stopping the clinic's strict diet I have gained 20lbs back. I just feel that 700-900 calories a day isn't healthy so I want to learn how to eat healthy and exercise to loose the weight. And Lord help me being from the south my weaknesses are sweet tea and anything fried!

I could really use a buddy to help me stay on track and give me some motivation when the country fried steak with gravy and biscuits are calling my name.

Hi Schnootie!
Your life is almost exactly like mine! :)

I'm 45 and live in Washington State with my wonderful husband. My daughter is 21 and is in college down in Oregon. We have 2 furry kids too--Bosco and Cooper, mini-schnauzers. I work full time, 10-hr days on Dayshift...

I used to be in great shape, but always battled 10 "vanity pounds". I'm 5'6" and weighed 135ish for most of my adult life. I'm a police officer, so I had to stay in shape--the job was physically active, so it wasnt that hard to keep on top of my weight. i also had a built-in weight-monitor, since my uniform would get snug when I gained :)

All that changed about 3 years ago when I promoted to Detective. Now I sit at a desk for most of my day...and since I wear plain clothes, I didin't realize I was gaining. A Lot.! One day, it dawned on me that I had gained 35lbs. :O

I've been trying to lose weight for several months now, and...well, it's not as easy as it used to be! My body is broken down from all the years of wear and tear, and my old injuries are coming back to haunt me. I can't go out and run, or work out for 2 hours each day like I used to when I was young :D Although my brain is ready for Crossfit, my body will never be ready to participate in that again. Age is the worst disease of all!

My diet. Ouch. if you're a vegetarian, what do you call a person that lives on Lattes and red licorice? LOL! I LOVE sugar, in all forms. So, I too make bad food choices.

So. I just discovered SparkPeople a few weeks ago. i've had a horrible time trying to get organized and motivated, and could really use a Buddy!

I have gained and lost 30 lbs each year for eight years. Rebounding quickly at my half way goal - back to my top weight.
I need to lose 60+ lbs, and on a 5' frame - that's a lot!

I am 41 year old Canadian female, married 23 years, have three teenage sons, working 'school hours' as a therapist.

Really want the weight off, feeling a bit discouraged, and could use a partner to connect with and encourage each other!

Hi, my name is Teresa, I'm 44 years old, married with two fairly newly acquired step daughters (ages 9 and 10). I was doing well on getting back in shape a little over a year ago, but with all the adjustments of having kids when I'd never been around any before, my exercise became nonexistent. Then around the same time I developed multiple food intolerances (including dairy, gluten, soy and rice) which has further complicated issues. I started back at the gym a little over two weeks ago. Did great the first week, not as well, but okay the second week, but none at all yet this week. This is a pretty typical pattern for me. I've also come to realize that I don't do well controlling my sugar/sweetener intake (mostly coffee and diet sodas - both of which make me feel bad physically, but I still continue to crave them) so I'm trying to get motivated to do a no sugar challenge. I'd love someone to do the challenge with me, but would be just as happy for a partner for general support and accountability. Thanks!

Teresa

But those who wait on the LORD
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.

Hi my name is Sami and I am 22 years old. I have been struggling to stay focused and motivated in losing the 28 pounds that I would like to lose. I would love to have a partner to help keep my accountable and I would love to be a partner to help someone else out whenever they need it. The biggest struggle for me has been to stick to everything for the long haul, and I think having someone going through the same stuff keep to in contact with might help me even more! :) emoticon

Stay Strong. Stay Positive. Laugh A lot. Love Always. Stay Confident. BE YOU. :)

Hi! My name is Jenny and I definitely know how you feel. I currently am about 150 pounds overweight and am in SERIOUS need to someone to support me in this massive journey. All of my life I have been overweight. My earliest memory regarding my weight was when I was 11 years old. My dad told m that I looked like a "pregnant, fat cow." Clearly, that has stayed with me my entire life. I am 37 years old and am a single mom of 13 year old son. I desperately want to lose this weight, because I want to be healthy and happy to see my son grow up. I would LOVE to be your partner and support each other on this adventure, I know as a team we are capable of great things! emoticon

Hi, I am 47 years old and I am a non traditional mom; having a baby in later life. My daughter is five now, and starting kindergarten tomorrow! I am married and live in Maine, and I have been waffling around this same weight for several years. I am a night binger, eating emotionally as a rule, and I really want to make a decision to put down the food, sugar, flour and wheat (for me) and lose this 60 pounds. I want to do this and at the same time I have some trepidation, as I have been this heavy for so long, like a certain quality of protection or something? I know, for my health, I need to make this change. I am spiritual and I believe in a Greater Power than myself, although I was never really formally raised with any religion. God has always been here for me, this I know, as I would not have otherwise been here now. I am a living testament to challenges and overcoming some major obstacles, and now it's time to give myself a life worth living. I am looking for someone like-minded who wants to make a change and overcome this excess weight. I am sensitive and compassionate. Hopefully, you are the person I am looking for in terms of accountability and support. Drop me a line! Thanks for reading. Hope

Hope

Hi, my name is Sharon. I live in Iowa. I am 50 yo, married without children, and have a black lab named Mavis. I have health issues that not only caused me to gain about 80 extra pounds, but also make losing the weight difficult. I am on oxygen 24/7 due to pulmonary fibrosis. I started pulmonary rehab about 5 weeks ago and that has really helped me a lot. I'm now up to 20+ min of exercise twice a week and hope to increase that as well as change my eating behavior. I believe God is Love and I live by the Golden Rule. I would enjoy finding an accountability partner.

Hi Team,

Single Mom of a 15yo very active daughter here that would love to have an accountability partner. I had GBypass 4 yrs ago, went thru a divorce and have found that I have put alot of weight back on sigh. I am an emotional eater and I know that is one of my triggers. I work full time at an insurance company and go to college part-time. I live on a dairy farm in central PA so there is always something to be doing. I just need to make better food choices and get back to eating the way I should.

Hugs,
Ann :)

Hello all you lovely critters out there!
I can certainly use a few partners in this journey. I am 44, have about 40 pounds to lose and am looking to get more active and healthy. I work full time, am married to a really wonderful guy, my daughters are 21 and basically on their own, and my two doggies are a very important part of my life. So I have some extra time to fill getting healthy. This year was the first year my cholesterol was almost in the "Oh-Oh" range, so I am determined to lower the number. I have had knee troubles since I was a kid, so although I love step aerobics, it's not something I can currently do. I try to walk in the park during lunch breaks and I am intrigued by the Curves approach.... 1 minute strength, 1 minute cardio and so forth. That seems to be a good healthy thing to do. I struggle with water intake. Being a vegetarian you would think I get enough veggies and fruit, but I don't always make proper choices.

I would love to team up with one or more people to share the daily journey with.

Hi, I'm Porsche. I'm 33 years old, single, and have about 100 lbs to lose. I'm down from 280 to 260-ish depending on the day. Right now my mini-goal is to just get under 250. I do really good sometimes but I'm an emotional eater and when I'm stressed out or have something upset me which can be any number of things, I go into binge mode. And then there are days when I just want to eat and not worry about calories and all and boy I'm good at that LOL I've started jogging lately and did a 5K yesterday in 48 minutes which for me was really good time. I'm wanting to do a "Dirty Girl Mud Run" next. There's one near me in April. I'm looking for someone who can help motivate me and maybe help talking me down off the ledge when I'm ready to eat everything in the house.

No matter how slow you're going, you're still lapping everyone on the couch :-)

YOU have to MAKE it happen.

Progress NOT perfection.

There is no elevator to success, you have to take the stairs.

Looking forward to support and making new connections here on SP.

Hi, I just joined the team. I am 44 years old. I live in Houston, Texas. I am really busy with work I am having a hard time working in fitness. I need a partner to force me to actually move during the week. I am good on the weekends and will end up playing Xbox for hours on a good game of Zumba or Dance Central, but the week is just too hectic to get in any real exercise.

Hi Guys. I am an RN and a motivational speaker! I travel every week and plan to take off 100 pounds in my 47th year of life. I was an athlete growing up and love sports. I have big dreams of loving to LA or NYC to pursue acting on my 48th birthday one year from now!!!

I am upbeat and outgoing... and funny... help is you are a motivational speaker. I do need help to stay motivated. I know all the right things. understand nutrition. Just need to stay focused and on track.

Would love to find a group that would like to have morning calls on my conference line....

Hello-

Like all of you good people,I too would like an accountability partner. I have ALOT of weight to lose and am just starting, so I'd be here for the long run. I'm a 32 year old single mother of a 10 year old, I've been called a crazy cat lady more than once.... I'm a nurse that works out of her home. If you need more information to decide, please don't hesitate to let me know.

Thanks!!!!

Hi, it looks like we have about the same amount to lose. My kids are grown, but one still lives at home, I have one grandchild in the area (5 are 12 hours away). I am very busy with work, I'm an RN who works nights at 2 jobs, so my eating schedule stays very messed up. But I like the SparkRecipes for when I am home to make dinner for the 3 of us (husband of 33 years and 27 year old son). Sounds like you are very busy too with some very interesting work. I'd like to be your accountability partner if you want.

Hi! I'm a 46 year old single mom with four children still at home. We live in South Dakota and I am currently a full time student. I think it would be a really good thing to have an accountability friend.

Hi, I just joined a couple of days ago and am still getting used to the site. I would love to have an accountability partner. I haven't tried to change my eating habits or exercise for years. I am a nurse and have always been too busy to care much, but my kids are grown and I need to not feel old at 51. I want to have a life outside of work and I'm too out of shape to do anything! It would be great to have someone to partner up with so we can encourage each other. Thanks.

Hi, My name is Chelsea, I am a 32 year old mother of 3 (2 are mine, 1 is my step daughter) I am engaged to my soul mate and am getting married next May. After a rough divorce and many mind games, I gained weight... I had lost 45 pounds at one time. Then I gained it all back over the past 2 years. I am hoping to get back on track and wear the wedding dress of my dreams and be healthy for my kids.
I am a Photographer and am in the process of opening my own studio (exciting!!!) I am getting my Real Estate License and work with my Fiancee in our Decor store.
I am the happiest ive been in a long time and when I get back to my goal weight, Ill be on top of the world!

I think I posted this under the wrong topic, so I am trying this again.

Hi

I'm Jeanne 47 and looking for an accountability partner. I live in Massachusetts am married and have two adult children and I work full time.
I need someone who is willing to kick me in the butt should the need arise.
I tend to start out real good then fizzle out, I think it is due to trying to do to much at once so I will need to be reminded to take baby steps.
I am not perfect and I don't have all the answers but I can promise you I will kick you in the butt should you need it (virtually), encourage you to keep going, cheer for and with you regarding accomplishments no matter how big or small.
I will listen while you vent, I can offer the virtual shoulder to cry on if needed.
If you would like to be my accountability partner please contact me.

Hello,
My name is Bonnie I am 49 years young and looking for a partner in which we can encourage each other. I am 194.6 lbs and at times I get discourage although keep at it. I am finally going to break down and meet with a dietician so I can try to jump start to loosing more weight. I am loosing it very slowly right now on the average of 1 lb a week. I would really like to lose at least 50 lbs over night lol. i just moved to the Sound of Indianapolis, ind area and have very little friends at the time in this area. I could say maybe 5 friends right now. So I could use some encouragement. thanks

Hi Jumping Jeannie:
I've got a few years on you, and spend more days on the grandmother role than the mom role, but I am the only one in my houe that needs to lose weight. My husband is 6 foot and a perfect 165 pounds. He is real supportive (although shocked to find out my real weight, which I have been hiding for years). But it is a struggle to cook meals that work for both of us. I started this voyage needing to lose over 100 pounds, and I am still around 85 or so, but I haven't even figure out the long term goal. Just concentrating on losing 50 by my 50th birthday. I've lost 32 so far.

Would love a friend on this journey to change my life.

Let me know if you are interested.

Hi! My name is Jill and I'm looking for an a partner to help keep me accountable. I'm a 28 year old full time working wife and mother of two. I'm 5'2 and 137 pounds, I'm hoping to get down to 115-125 pounds. I stared the couch 2 5K program. (I completed day 1 yesterday.) I don't really like running, but there are so many benefits to not do it. I also joined a gym a couple months ago. My goal is to go 3-5 days a week.

Please let me know if you are interested in being my buddy. Thank you!
