Hey :)

I am 5'8 as well and my nutritionist says that I should stay around 185-190...anything under that and I'll look deathly ill. I pride myself on being strong, so if 185 works for me then I'm ecstatic! You have a great goal of 100lbs and believe it or not, you'll be smaller than a size 16/18, I think. You'll be curvy just like you want :)

I hope all the best for you and I know you can do it!! Congrats on the 9lbs already :)

Ashley

Hello, My name is Matthew. I am hoping to lose 100 lbs by the end of the year. I come from a large family, both in numbers and weight and do not want to go down the same path as many of them have with diabetes and other heath problems.

Heylo
I'm Carla.
I'm 28 years old and live in Jamaica. I'm looking to lose 111 pounds in a year. My doctor told me once that after 30 its twice as hard to lose and I have about a year to go so this is my year
I generally don't share my fitness stuff with people, hence i don't go to the gym, but i'm giving the online forum a try, attempting to open up *shudder* lol.
i've never been sporty or what not
and i've never hated the way i look
but healthwise i'd like to lose the weight before some crisis comes along and forces me to
i work out at home with a bunch of DVD's
and my wii
soooo
yah that's me. hopefully we can all do something here.
I take it one meal, one work out, one day at a time.

Hey everyone I'm Sarra. I'm actually 19 but there's no good active groups for "under" 20. So I'm snagging a spot here. ;)

I'm here to lose over 100 lbs in a year and get a body that I'm proud of. My goal is to go from a size 26 to a size 16/18 again which I was at when I was about 14 and hated my body then but it's going to be all curves this time around and we'll see where I go from there. I've got a larger frame so 180 (still 'obese' for 5'8") seems incredibly skinny for my frame, so I might stop sooner than That.. but..

I just want to look in the mirror and see Me. Not the fat girl.

Wow so many great people in here. Well, I'm Herberth and I'm 21 and I'm from El Salvador.

It's time for me to stop telling myself "I'll change" when I do nothing about. I have decided to turn my life around and it's nice to know there are other great people here I can relate to. I also wanna say I have been reading your posts and you guys inspire me even more to work harder on my goal :)

So yeah :P

Hi everyone, I'm Christine! I'm 23 and I go to West Virginia University, in my 5 years of school, I have gained almost 80 pounds brining my weight up to 271 pounds. This year my wonderful boyfriend offered to help me lose all the weight I needed to get back to ideal weight, 140 pounds. Since we started mid January I've lost -5 in training for a 5K. He's also the one that suggested SparkPeople to help me keep track of everything I've been up to. I still like using my Fitness Pal on my ipod but I figured double counting would make me take a second look at what I was doing daily.

Hello Everyone! My name is Lauren and I just turned 28, I've been married for 3 and a half years and have two children. I've struggled with weight issues my whole life but had been maintinging a healthier weight before I got pregnant. Unfortunately when I got pregnant with my son, I gained 80 pounds!!! My pregnancies were really close together (they're 13 months apart) and wasn't able to lose the baby weight from the first one before gaining more with the second one. Anyway, long story short, I need to lose more than 100 pounds. When I started I was 260 and today I weighed in at 247!! YAY! It's so cool to find this team and know that there are other people out there that are dealing with the same food issues and day-to-day stress that I am. I hope that I can help other people along the way! emoticon emoticon

Hey SIEZMIC,
just go to your SP page and then click on edit Sparkpage. If you scroll down you should see a section entitled my weight loss ticker. Hope that helps! Best of luck!!!

My name is Kelli and I am from Cincinnati, OH. I am looking to lose weight so that I can have a healthy pregnancy (in the future) and be a healthy Mommy. I want to lose 120 lbs but at this time I am doing 5% of my body weight at a time. Little goals to keep me motivated. 14lbs. sounds much better than 120 lbs. Happy losing everyone!

Hello,

I am Jessica, I am 24 and live in North Carolina. I too have battled with weight issues since I was a teen. I am the typical yo-yo dieter. I just had a baby two months ago and gained 30 lbs on top of the 215 I already weigh. So now I am at 245 and hoping to get down to 145 by next year.

Hello, hello.

I am Shai, I am 26 and from the sunshine state. I have battled weight my entire life, having many ups and downs. I recently went down to 200, and gained 60 pounds in less than a year. After a blood pressure reading of 165/105 I have decided I am going to finally take control of my life and health. My first real goal is to get under 200 before my 27th birthday 9/19. Best of luck to everyone!

Hey y'all! I'm Christina from South Carolina. I can't wait to get involved and meet challenges/ goals with everyone. I am determined to change my life, plain and simple. I have 135 lbs to lose. That is an impossible number to defeat by myself. I am looking forward to learning and growing with people who are journeying to a healthier way of living. I'm ready!

I'm hoping that this is the right place to do this :P

I just joined SparkPeople today! I'm a 22 year old university student. I'm currently 220 pounds and 5'3", and looking to go down to 118-120 pounds.

My short-term (kind of short-term, anyways!) goal is to lose 50 pounds (at least) by the end of June, when I'm going to Disney World with my family. I want to fit in the rides!

I'm willing to do anything it takes to meet this goal :)

i feel like an artist who's lost his touch; he likes himself in his art, but his art not too much.

Hey Sparkles! emoticon

I am new to SparkPeople.com and am a little less than half way in my weight loss journey...well the journey and hard work will never end but I will reach my goal weight! If anyone needs a motivator or someone to talk to I am ready and willing to talk! As well as searching for someone to talk to about struggles, tips and advice :)

Hope everyone is having fun working hard! It'll be a battle worth living for!

Hello everyone!
I hope I'm doing this right this time. I'm very new to forums. I was on Spark People one other time before this, but now I'm ready to really work on losing the weight. I never really heard of it before and I let it slip away into oblivion. Then, I started hearing excellent rumors about Spark People everywhere. When I hit 274lbs, I was determined NOT to hit 275. Since then I have gotten down to 262 on my own, but I'm not doing enough. Spark People is going to help me stay on track and make a lifestyle change. I like to think I am a nice person, and I love to chat as well. I'm thinking this time around on Spark People is going to be much better. Have a great day!

Hey Y'all!

I recently turned 29 and have a little over 100 lbs to lose. I know this journey will take me a while, but I am motivated to continue with long-term changes in my life.

I had already lost about 15 pound before I started SP (and another 14 after) so hopefully this will be another tool to keep me in the right direction!! I am happy to no longer be in the 300's! YAY!

I know this is a long journey for all of us so I am happy to have the support.

If anyone wants to exchange e-mail addresses to keep etch other accountable that would be great! :)

Good luck to everyone!!!

Hi, I am Amanda and am just learning the ropes here at spark people. A lot of family and facebook friends suggested I try this out and so far it is really handy. I started my Journey at 359 and am now at 353. I started on Monday this week and have already lost 6 pounds. I am so happy about that. The road is going to get tougher...so I will need all the support I can get. I love chatting with people so if you want send me a message! Would love a buddy to go through this with!

Take care, and happy pound dropping!

Life, Love and Laughter

Hello I'm new to spark people. I am so glad that I found this site. I am currently 265lb and I just turned 26. I started out at 290 and I've lost a lot on my own, but I'm getting very bored with my current routine and I find it hard to track anything because I'm so forgetful. So I'm very happy that I've found this site. My goal is to be down at least another 50 lbs by September as I'm starting college to be a Paramedic. I don't want my weight to stand in the way of my dream job.

Hi everyone. So I am starting back up with the weightloss journey. I have been on and off SP for a few years now. However, this time I am determined. I have one semester left of college, and I am not leaving it at 250 lbs. It is not happening! So I just wanted to say hi. Also, I would love a buddy to chat with and keep me going, but I need someone who can respond every day or every other day. So yea, hi!

Spark on,

Hello Everyone! I'm not 100% new, but it's been a long time since I've been on.

I'm 27, and 260lbs. The hardest aspect of weightloss for me is keeping my calories in check. I know if I can reform my eating habits, I'll be well on my way to being healthier!

Hey everybody. I am coming back totally recommitted after a few months of temporary insanity where i thankfully didn't gain anything, but didn't lose either. I work 12 hr shifts which leave me exhausted, really need to find more motivation to work out. Good luck to everyone, I love reading about everyone's success!

Hello everyone! I hope you all don't mind me joining. I'm technically down to 92.8 lbs to lose, but that's close enough right? When I started my journey last Spring, I was 268 lbs. My goal for this year is to reach a healthy BMI weight of 160 lbs. So when it's all said and done, I would have lost 108 lbs. I recently joined WW and I really feel like it's helping me on this journey. I was on Spark first and did well last year...I actually lost 20 lbs, but gained about 12 back by the end of the year. I'm rambling, but I'm looking for at least one good, supportive, consistent group on Spark. I love to participate in challenges, but want to be held accountable for my progress. I hope I'm in the right place.

Hi everyone! Last week in People magazine I read an article about people losing weight. I saw that one of the girls in the magazine said she came to this site and read success stories when she had cravings for cookies. Today I decided enough was enough and made the decision that I have to change my lifestyle. So, here I am. I am excited to start the rest of my life today.

Hey y'all I'm 27, and need to lose.. a lot. LOL I've lost 60lbs in about a year and a half on my own but the last 6 months it's been stalled. Came here to get the motivation to keep going! My ticker only shows my short term goal which is to be 280 by June 4. Going to see Mumford & Sons at the WARKAUSA festival and it's going to be hot. HOT. Being thinner would make that easier to endure! But 180 is my ultimate goal, anything beyond that is gravy. =)

20 lbs is awesome! i so wish we could take it off more quickly as well but you are absolutely right, it doesn't go on over night so it won't go away that quickly either. you should be proud of what you've done so far! i'm cheering for ya! emoticon

Hi!

I'm 28 and have been working at losing weight since September. So far I'm down just over 20 lbs, but I definitely have more to go. It's been hard since I kind of thought I might lose weight a bit quicker since there was so much - but I know it took 6 years to add this weight to my frame, so it's not going to come off too quickly!

Hi, I'm Debbie, a 24 year old stay at home mum to a 20 month old little boy. I have over 100lbs to lose as I weigh 276lb at present and my ultimate goal weight is somewhere around 150. I haven't quite settled on it yet as it seems too huge a task, so I'm just taking things as they come at the moment

I'm not sure if I am posting this right or not but here goes. Hi all. I weigh 261 pounds. My ultimate goal weight is about 130. I have a lot happening this year and want to be as fit and healthy as can be. I am graduating and will hopefully be getting a job as a dental hygienist. I am also planning on getting married in the fall so with all these new changes I want to change me too. I have a lot to lose but hopefully with support and determination I will be able to get there.

I just wanted to stop in and say hello. I weigh 276 (according to the scale this morning). My current goal is 180, hopefully by November, my goal altogether is 150. I'm waiting for my boyfriend to propose, so I am hoping that I can reach that goal weight for my wedding, whenever that may be, lol.

I am a computer technician, so I spend a lot of time at a desk, plus a full time student...which means even more time at a desk (doesn't really help you lose weight)!!

Hi my name is Becky. I'm new to SparkPeople ... I heard about it through someone at work. I've used a couple of different online trackers, but have always stayed away from using the message boards. Since I know I'll need the support, I figured I'd give this one a try. I've got a lot to lose, and I know it won't happen overnight. I'm just hopeful that I'll have the patience and willpower to succeed.

Hello everyone! My name is Courtney and i am 25. I have always struggled with my weight. I currently 120lbs to lose. I have tried so many diets that i have not been able to follow. I have taken nutrition classes so i know what i am supposed to do and now it is time to really put it into action. I made a promise to myself that i would get a handle on my weight before i was 26. I dont want to have to worry about so many health problems in the future and i want to feel lighter so that i may be more active. I look forward to the journey. Good luck to us all!!

Hello everyone! I'm Jenna and I'm 23. I have 130 lbs to lose to get down to a healthy weight. I've struggled my whole life with weight, but was always around 30 lbs overweight until I went to college and stopped playing sports. Since then I've gained 100 lbs. I've tried losing it here and there, but never found the right routine or something came up and never followed through with it. This year I've put my foot down and I am going to go through with it. I've changed my workout routine to keep it fresh and not the same thing day after day. Tracking what I eat has made a huge difference. I never knew how many calories were in certain things. It opened my eyes. Plus tracking everything keeps me honest and on track. I'm to the point where I want to excercise, i'm not finding excuses not to. Here is to the start of a long journey but completely worth it. Good luck to everyone!

Hi! I'm Dani, I'm 27 and I have 102 pounds to lose. I'm losing the weight now because I think it'll make me a better athlete. I play roller derby, and while I can do a lot of what I need to right now, endurance is really hard, and I know I can't be truely great with all this weight on. I've been overweight most of my life, but it was manageable( 20-40 pounds). It only got out of control before I was diagnosed as bipolar. I couldn't control most of my life, let along my eating. Since then, I haven't gained any weight, but I haven't lost any either. I think it's time that I get it off and keep it off!

Right now, I've completely changed my diet and exercise plan. I work out a lot, and I've totally illuminated sugar, white bread, and unhealthy snacking for 2 weeks now! I hope to get the weight off within the year, and at the very least be able to perform much better than last year come try out time in June!

I'm Ashley, I'm 21 and currently about 260 lbs. I got a WII fit for Christmas and I'm trying my best to use it everyday. I also bought the 30 day shred dvd, but it knocked me out completly, so I figure once I've lost some of the excess baggage, I might be able to do it easier. I'm in the Vancouver, BC, Canada area, and would love to meet up with some people from the area, and maybe go for a walk or hit the gym!!! Best of luck everyone!!!

Hey everyone! I'm 26 years old and living in California and am currently at 275 pounds which, as we all know, can be quite depressing to think about. My best friend and I are going to start the life-style change of eating right and all that jazz, and currently I feel like it's the most daunting task ever. I have a bunch of health problems that prevent me from working out, so my first goal will to lose enough weight that it becomes possible.

I'm not really focused on the number of pounds I lose, as I don't even own a scale currently, but rather how my health and body changes and what size jeans I can buy, since we all know that plus size clothes are a pain to find and fit!

Anymoo, I just want the encouragement and support from other people who are like me, so I know it's possible. I'll be glad to offer both in return of course! So good luck to all of us on this pain (literally) of a journey!

Hi everyone.
My name is Felicita and like everyone else i have a lot of weight to lose (120 pounds). I have been over weight for many years and really think that now is the time that I take control of my life and do something for me. I am excited that I found this site where i can be supported on my journey as i do not have much support anywhere else. I have custody of my 8 year old niece and that poses its own challenges but i am ready to begin a new chapter in my life before it is too late.
thanks for listening

Hi, my name is Aaron and I have about 110lbs to lose. I'm excited to be started on my journey with my wife. I want to set a better example for my 5 year old daughter, who is thankfully not overweight. I'm 24 years old, married for 3 years.

I used to be a very active and healthy guy until I started working in IT. This type of work tends to be very sedentary and I'm finally sick of sitting on my behind all the time. I'm ready to make a change!

Good luck to everyone!

Hi All! My name is Missy and I'm 28 and I have 172 lbs to lose. I've been overweight all my life with overweight parents. I've decided this year is for me! I know its going to be a long journey, but I'm prepared. I'm hoping to motivate my overweight husband into losing right along with me, and as a result teach my 5 year old daughter healthy habits from the beginning. I look forward to meeting new people and I know I need the motivation!

Hey there everyone. My name is Shawna, I am 27 years old and I am from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I am here because I NEED to lose ALOT of weight and I need a support system to do it. I am a full time student at Unversity and I am also a single mom of two, one of my chldren having special needs. Because of all these factors joining a weight loss group like weight watchers or the like is not possible because there is no extra cah to do that. Hense why I am here. All your support would be awesome as well a any inexpensive ideas would be greatly apprecaited.

Now the fun stuff about me. I have been through alot in my life so I have learnt that being myself is the only way I want to be. I love horror movies and have a sweet spot for zombies. I love the comic series the walking dead and I am also a follower of both Fangoria and Rue Morgue. I see things often from a different view point then other around me but I love that about myself. Basically I am a great listener, totally wear my heart on my sleeve, and I am here to connect with people I would like to call friends.

Like I said any support would be welcomed and I promise to be a great support to those who trust me as well.

Sincerely,
Shawna

Hi, my name is Shelby. I am 25 years old. I am full time student and also hold a full time job. I started SP a few years back and lost about 50lbs. I got comfortable and thought i could continue on my own, with out tracking everything, turns out i couldn't and over the past two years the weight has slowly krept back on. I have to have that support and accountability from others, to make sure i continue to reach my goals. I am looking forward to starting this new healthier journey.

Hi, my name is Stephanie. I'm 23 years old and I'm currently in pharmacy school. I have been "overweight" since I can remember. Over the past 5 years (since high school) I have gained a lot of weight and I am so uncomfortable in my own skin, I decided enough is enough. I am starting this journey with my eyes wide open. I will do whatever it takes to accomplish my goals. For along time I have put other things first; school, work, family; STARTING NOW - I am putting me FIRST!

Hi! Need to lose 115 while going to college and raising a kid. It's been a long battle (since I was 14 and I am now 26), but I don't want to give up. These past few months have been to closest to my accepting that I may never lose this weight...but I want to give it at least one more try, I am going to take it slow, but be persistent. God help me.
