Hello! My name is Karoline, I am from Norway, and I am 29 years old. I have been on SparkPeople since February 2008, and it's been a lot of ups and downs weight wise, but one thing I am sure of is that SparkPeople has changed my life for the better and I love this site so much!

Trying to get back into a healthy lifestyle now - need to figure out how to combine it with my love of craft beer and pub quizzes.

I also play Ingress - GO RESISTANCE! Such a great app to get walking, explore your neighborhood, learn about its culture and history and get to know new people! Check it out - https://www.ingress.com/.

I love traveling, volunteering, seeing the world and trying to make it a better place. I have lived in the US, Ghana, India, Nepal, Switzerland/France, and the UK. Currently working in global health/health information systems (DHIS2) at the University of Oslo.

I need to get back into consistency which is absolute key. I will start up my streaks/habits of tracking, ST (I used to do 30 minutes every day) and cardio (That's where I am always lacking), and hopefully, I'll see some results on the scale. Luckily I know that this is a lifestyle, not a temporary diet, so I try not to get too demotivated. Plus, I find joy in non-scale victories - and I have had a bunch of them! For example, I stopped drinking soda on 10th of February 2008.

One of the best parts of SparkPeople has been to be part of the Biggest Loser Yellow Team through many challenges - everyone was so supporting, wonderful and so much fun to chat and get healthy with! I am now a member of the Biggest Loser Emerald team - first challenge back, as an honorary member, and I am so excited to get back on track with a healthier lifestyle.

Don't hesitate to send me an inbox message or comment on my page - I would love to hear from you!
