Hi everyone! i'm a newbie here from the Philippines. i joined this site hoping i could lose weight. i'm a 27 yr old mom of a 2yr old boy. before i got pregnant, i was only 10lbs over weight. but after my CS operation, i gained over 25 lbs. I love sweets (the culprit).. but now i'm willing to sacrifice it just to get back to my old weight. i hope to meet new friends here as well. :)

Hello all! I'm new to this site, I just signed up yesterday and decided that if I was going to be serious about changing my lifestyle then I would have to be proactive around this site. I figured this would be the perfect place to start. In highschool I weighed myself down heavily with schoolwork, when that ended I magically lost weight without actively trying (a combination of less stress and real sleep) but I failed to maintain that weight (which sadly was my ideal weight) and have put on 20 lbs. It must go! With all of the great tools and things that SP offers I am determined to do this the right way!! I will get my cute bikini body by the end of the summer!

Hi! My name is Becky I'm a travel RN certified in ONS. I'm originally from NY (no not the city!) currently living outside of DC. I've always been very into eating organically and taking very good care of myself. however since working nights i have gained about 5-10lbs and have zero energy. I'm very muscular so i try not to look at the numbers on the scale. However I am going to try to make it to a toned 135. (I'm 5'3). At my heaviest I was 168. I eventually got down to 155, and then hit a platue. i've started doing the 30 pound shred and cutting out processed foods and eating a ton of fruits and veggies. so far I'm down to 149 but i feel myself slipping in the work out department. Hopefully I can find some motivation!

Hi everyone,

I once was on this page a couple of months ago, probably 2 years ago and I lost 5 kgs which is like 11 lbs in one month. I am back now and I want to lose a total of 22lbs in 3 months. I have started eating healthly and it is difficult as I love my fried chicken. I also am going to start exercising because I have started having back pains.

Hi all!

I'll be celebrating my 25th BDay in 2 weeks, also I have recently separated myself from a numb relationship with my so-called highschool sweetheart. It has been 8 years since I was last single and am now finding comfort in food. *EEK*

I've gained 7-10 pounds in the last month ALONE due to binging. Well, I did begin a workout regime to counteract my eating, but alas, there is just too much good food! lol

Going to need the motivation, comfort and inspiration of others to help me through this rough patch ;)

Hi all! I'm 25 years old and I lost 40 pounds when I first started Spark People 2 years ago. My initial goal was to get to 113 lbs and I never quite achieved it. I'm happy with the weight loss I achieved in the past, but I know I can reach my goal. So I'm here again!

Hello! I figured I'd introduce myself! I've been on the site since August of last year, but never posted anything.

At my heaviest I was over 215lbs, and now (after lots of hard work and learning how to eat) I am down to 165. Even though i have a lot of muscle, its my goal to lose another 15-20lbs in the next few months.

So anyways, I figured I'd say hello to everyone!

I plan on losing all the access lbs and some for me and only me (granted everyone around me will benefit as well). I'm glad I have ppl to help me along so keep on cheering an I promise I will too.

Hi everyone.

I joined today because I have lost 15 pounds about two years ago and now all of it has resurfaced. I am starting the fat belly diet tomorrow so I am hoping that will jumpstart some lost pounds and get me motivated. My problem is that I love to eat. I like to taste and eat all the good stuff. I want to take it off and learn to keep it off. I hate putting my body through is up and down all the time.

Hi! I'm Ness. I'm 22 years old and just graduated from University.
Like Louise I gained a lot of weight during my four years of schooling; mostly in my second and third year. Eventually I just couldn't recognize myself. SO, Starting last summer I lost all the weight I gained in University (yay!) but I want to lose 10 more but I've been at a plateau for 2 months. So here I am to be motivated. :)

Hello!! I'm Louise. I'm 23 and Irish. My biggest problem is that during my college years I have consumed far too much alcohola nd with final exams did not watch what i was eating. As a result my weight is becoming a major annoyance! I have two weddings this year. One in September and one in December and I really just want to look back at the photos and feel good about how i looked. Lets get this show on the road!!!

Hi!
I'm a 21 year old Aussie and although I'm not completely new to SP, this is the first time I've actively contributed to a group posting or been properly 'active' online. I have a major sweet tooth and as a result, I've held on to about seven unwanted kilos for the past three years of my university life! I've managed to lose a few kilos here and there but this time, I want those seven kilos gone, and for good!!
I am going to be SUPER active on SP with you guys so let's help each other out, let's post regularly and keep eah other motivated! If I'm going to set my mind to this, I want you guys to do it with me!!
GOOD LUCK!

Hi, my name is Ashley. I am a 20 year old college student with bad eating habits. I am 165 lbs now and I am trying to get down to 150 lbs. I am simply losing weight so that I will look better in my clothes and some of my clothes do not even zip or button anymore. I workout a lot, but tend to eat a lot of unhealthy sweets. I need a bit of support for this. This time, I am serious about losing weight.
