I'm looking for a partner. I have 20-25 lbs I would like to lose. Hoping to partner with someone who is in a similar situation. I'm not big on exercise and trying to learn to like it ... even just a little bit because I haaaaaaate it. See my page for more details if interested.

Good luck everyone...work hard and accomplish your goals! :)

I would love to have an accountability partner or partners. I am limited on time to scroll through right now, but here is some info about me. Add me, message me, whatever if you would like to be a partner. I'll also be back later to search out any potential partners.

I am 40 years old, married and have 3 kids, ages 12,7, and 4 (two boys and a girl). We also have 1 dog and two cats. I am a stay at home mom, so sometimes I have more time during the day when the older kids are at school, or later at night after the kids are in bed.

I have 138 pounds to lose and would like to have someone who is willing to be in touch at least once a day, maybe more.

Hi everyone. My name is Karen and I'm 32 years old and near Cleveland, Ohio. I have 2 wonderful girls, ages 13 and 11. About 3 years ago I started a journey to quit smoking and get healthier. I did quit smoking for a couple of months and started working out. Within about 6 months I had lost about 25 pounds. Shortly after losing the weight, I was told that my place of employment was going to be downsizing, I had to have surgery on my hand (I haven't bowled since), and I just gave up on myself. Fast forward to today, I have been a non smoker since Jan. 8, 12, but I have also put on the pounds I lost and doubled it. Right now I am at my highest weight that I have ever been at. I'm here to do things the right way and make myself accountable for my actions

Hi all! My name is Lacie. I am 22 years old and just starting out. I have close to 90 pounds to lose to hit my "final goal" weight. Although I am fairly new, I am very motivated. Even when my brain tries to talk my out of working out I do it anyway each day. I love trying new foods amd new exercises. I am just afraid I will hit an end to this "honeymoon stage". Anyone interested in being partners, I am fullly commited to being a great support buddy, please message me.

Hi all! I am seeking a partner (s) to help keep my momentum going for my healthy lifestyle! I am looking for a partner or partners that wouldn't mind me checking in randomly at least once a week, (between work, my son, and my hubby working + going to school, once a week is the most I'm able to commit to with a clear conscious, but I will check in more if I am able too! emoticon ) A little about me, I am 29, soon to be 30 *gasps*. I am on a quest to reach my goal weight by the end of 2014 (which is a little under 100 lbs. It's a large goal, but one I'm willing to take on!) I work as a para for a local school district but I am actively seeking my own classroom (I graduated from MSU in 2012 with my teaching degree, ask me about the job market. . .). I am married to my best friend and we have 1 amazing son! Looking forward to getting to know everyone on this team better!

Hello,

I'm Heather. I'm 25 and from Colorado. I struggle to keep on track when I start a weight loss goal. This has recently become more of an issue due to work. As a teacher, I tend to skip meals (not enough time to eat with all that needs to be done) which causes me to over eat at dinner time. I am looking for someone that I can check in with each day to keep me accountable.

Hi all, NEEDING someone to help motivate & make me accountable for my slackness...
My name is Sheryl & I live on the beautiful Gold Coast of Australia. I'm mum to 9, grandma to 4, & wife to 1 😃 I'm 50 years young and have been over weight all my life, I can't blame my figure on having children 😕
My adult life has been consumed not only with children & work (registered nurse, pathologist) but with yo yo dieting also. Our youngest is going to New Zealand to university this year, so it is my time.
Two years ago I had a car accident breaking my back & neck forcing me into retirement and packing on the kilos... I NEED someone to help me get on track & keep me motivated in this journey...
Looking forward to hearing from someone 😃 👍

My name is Meisha and I am 23 years old, from Saskatchewan, Canada. I have about 22lbs to lose before I am at goal weight, but I've needed to lose that 20~lbs for about a year and a half now. I get close, 10lbs away from my goal, but then something happens, like summer (where I eat and drink and be merry instead of properly exercising for 3 months solid) and I'm back to where I started. I'm looking for someone who can keep me accountable so I can reach my goal by June, and through the summer and beyond so I don't blow all of my hard work. I have the eating thing more or less down, it's really about the exercise accountability for me, but I consider myself very good with food accountability too. :)

Cheers!

I am very excited to find an accountatilbity partner to help keep me on track! And I will do the same for you!

My name is Sheri and I live in the currently very chilly state of MN. I am 32 years old and I have 2 kids, a 6 year old boy and a 2 year old girl. I work in Marketing and have a long drive to work each day. I leave the house at 6am and get home at 6pm so my time seems very limited to me and that makes it hard to find the time to exercise. It took me 2 years to get back down to my pre baby weight after my son, but losing 20 pounds and keeping it off to be back there again has been a very difficult challenge for me since my daughter was born.

This year I am starting fresh and I am determined to get to my goal weight of 145 lbs. I have a closet full of clothes that are too small and I would LOVE to be able to wear them again.

I have a trip to FL planned for March and my goal is to lose 15 pounds before our trip.

I have found in the past that having someone to keep me on track is the only way I can be successful. I would really like to have someone support me who is willing to cheer me on and encourage me and also kick my butt into gear if I am slacking off.

I look forward to this year and pushing myself and others to reach their goals.

I am looking for an accountability partner. Here is a little about me. My name is Paula. I am a 40 year old Paramedic from Northwest Ohio. I have a 21 year old who has moved out and doing the college thing. I am divorced and live alone in a small rural community. Trying to find support locally is hard to do. I find people to walk with here and there but no one to hold me accountable, which is something I really need. I hope to find some people on here to build a good support system and friendship with. God has blessed me with a great life and a great career. I find myself being a hypocrite though preaching to patients about their lifestyle and taking care of themselves she I myself have an extra 35 pounds on and don't exercise the way I should. I so frequently in my career see people who's lives take dramatic changes and they say their should ofs and the could ofs. I don't want to wake up someday being in that situation so I have started a bucket list. This year I want to lose the weight, get fit, and make my first marathons. I look forward to this Year and all of its blessings. Good luck and Gods blessing to each and everyone of you!!! We all can do this!!!! emoticon

If it's important, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse.

Hi I am looking for a partner. I would love someone who lives near me so we could workout together but it's ok if you don't. My name is Candyce and I am 28. I am getting married in June 2014 and I need to lose the weight I've gained over the past few years from a back injury. This is the heaviest I have ever been in my life and I do not want to stay this way. I live In Ontario, CA with my parents for now. I am looking for someone who is also on the same journey as me looking to lose weight and gain control. I wold like to take my dress in 2 sizes so that is main goal but I am starting small just trying to eat better and go walking. Send me a message or let me know if you are interested in being partners.

Hi, I'm Leanne and I'm from the UK. I'm 27 and have about 100lbs to lose. I've been on every diet known to man but always gain back the weight, so this time there's no gimmicks, just eating less and exercising more, taking baby steps rather than trying to change everything all at once and failing! Could do with a spark friend so we could help each other stay motivated and share success and setbacks with :)

Hi, my name is Sheila. I am a 45 single mother of two, one just moved out and one that will shortly. I live with my boyfriend. Two dogs and one cat. I find that there is so much more that I want to do. This has been the year of change for me. I was in a car accident, walked away not hurt. Had a mass taken off my face, I have my face back again, ;) I stopped smoking and I am going to lose weight.

I live in N michigan about a mile from where I grew up
.
I am not sure what my goal is. I will know when I get there. I am thinking of 80 more pounds.

I would like a buddy to walk with on this weight loss journey.

Hello all! I would like to find an accountability partner. emoticon

A little bit about me: I am 31 years old and I live in Alaska. I have no children (cannot have any and don't plan on adopting). I do, however, have two fur children. One is a calico cat and the other is a cocker spaniel/dachshund mix (both of them about 13 pounds). I am also married and we are coming up on our our 8th anniversary in February. I am in the U.S. Air Force and from time to time I get swamped at work.

Things I like to do: I am somewhat of a bookworm. I like reading books and then going to see the movie. I am usually disappointed with the movie because it doesn't relate as much with the book as I had hoped. I also like running, working out, hiking, and yoga. Right now a lot of things are difficult to do because I am recovering from a broken thumb and I am currently going through therapy to fix it.

What I am looking for in a partner: I need at least a once a week check-in partner. I need someone to keep me in line, even if I give an excuse of why I can't do something. I am looking to lose about 29 lbs, and I have already lost 3.6. I am hoping with a little bit of encouragement I can keep it off for good this time!

I am looking forward to getting to know everyone!


EDITED TO ADD:
LOVELYLEA has agreed to be my partner. I will be happy to have more than one partner, so don't be shy!

Greetings all. I'm bob a fun loving guy who retired from pa to sc to get out of the cold. I'm diabetic but refused most of my life to deal properly with it. Now time is catching up with me and I realize I have to loose weight. I live in an active retirement community so exercise is easy for me, love golf, tennis, pickleball. But hate going to the gym. That's sailor in my pic, he's my golden and makes sure I get out for walks, Unfortunately he's a little difficult to talk too.

My biggest problem is I love to eat and love to snack. Would love to have a partner to offer and get encouragement along this journey. Preferably a diabetic who has or is struggling with controlling their blood glucose. Someone else who is 60's going on 19. Starting their life over again. If interested check out my spark page and drop me a line.

Have a wonderful day.
Bob in SC

Hi! Thank you to MRSTWIGGY for reaching out and inviting me to this team!
My name is Lea. I'm 25 and live with my husband of going on 3 years and our 2 cats and greyhound.
I have been on SP before but not for more than a year, so I created a new page for this next chapter in my journey.
I've been a fairly active person but have a 9-5 (or rather 7:30-4) desk job and fell off the wagon.
Looking to makes new friends and sharing motivation!

I am in bad need of someone to keep me accountable. We have so much bad food in the house and my wife gets if for the kids. I only have willpower for so long before it breaks down. I need someone that I can text or call...almost like a sponser for AA. I have come so far and it has only gotten harder. If anyone thinks they can help me with this please message me. I really need it. Thank you for reading.

I have battled my weight throughout my adulthood. After having two kids I struggled to stay active outside their needs. After my husband died I relised how heavy and unhealthy I was. I started working out at home, with my friend. When her husband we transferred to China, I lost motivation and gained 20lbs of the 40lbs I had los back. So I am back on track, at a gym with a trainer. I am only about two weeks in so not noticing much change yet. O do find it harder to get into the gym on non training days. Ultimately, I would like to find a workout buddy to make me more accountable for getting my workouts in. Hopefully, I will meet someone at the gym who fits that bill. We shall see.

Hi! I am looking for a partner who can check in on me to make sure I'm staying on track with my program, to provide encouragement when needed and applaud when I do well. I am 37 years old, married, and looking to lose 20 pounds. I don't need a partner with similar goals so much as a partner who is willing to take the time out to help me out. In turn, I will dedicate my time and attention to my partner and help him/her reach his/her goals.

Thanks!

Hello, My name is Allison. I am 23 years old, married to the love of my life and we have a gorgeous and amazing 17 month daughter. I have tried this accountability a few times, and it never ended up working out :[
I'm aiming to lose anywhere from 50 to 60 lbs. When I started my journey I weighted 210 lbs, got down to 180, had a set back :[ now at 190.
Please send me a message if you are serious about wanting a weight loss partner.
I want someone I can at least talk to every other day.

Hi, Everybody. I'm Renae. This seems like a very proactive group, which is appealing to me. My plan is to read through the recent entries below this one, to see if I might be a good match for someone. As I go, I plan to send friend requests to folks who seem to have some common interests. I'm really only looking for one or two accountability partners, though. (The better to develop deeper, more sustaining relationships.) I'm in this for the long haul and being part of SparkPeople is about becoming healthier for me, not just losing weight.

Some things about me:
I am 46, almost an empty-nester, married, an animal lover, a small-city-dweller, a horror writer, a "paranormal" blogger, non-religious, a moderate liberal, a reader, a knitter, a social media junkie, and a Minnesotan (who is desperate to move away from winter.) I am bipolar II, and I'm ok with that. Aside from common interests, I especially value creativity, passion and intelligence in others.

I need to lose about 40 pounds. I'm very interested in adding more yoga and walking into my life. Someday, I'd like to run again ... the way I did as a kid, not so much as an official jogger or runner. My favorite exercise right now is Zombies, Run - a walking/running app that keeps my mind engaged as I walk. Because it's winter, that happens on a treadmill right now. I do have a gym membership. Zumba classes look fun, but would kill me right now.

I like to cook and bake and want to keep my food real. I don't require any special diet and don't shun anything in particular. Natural and local is better, when I can afford it. I'm hoping a combination of eating moderately and widely, and increasing my activity, will take me to where I want to be.

The next couple of months, for me, are going to be very stressful. My challenge will be to make progress DESPITE that. I need to be exercising, improving my diet and writing. (Also, not spending much money.)

That's a good a start as any. I hope I can make a connection or two. I'm really eager to help some folks meet their goals too. If you think I might make a good accountability partner for you, let me know at my profile page. I'm interested in striking up more casual friendships too :)

PS Wow. That was longer than I realized. Sorry.

Hi Leslie! My name is Kelley and I am 36 years old. In October I married my high school sweetheart. We have been together for 19 years and have a 2 year daughter. At my highest weight I was 260 pounds and as of this morning I am down to 225! Granted, my weight has been up & down for years I am very determoned this time to reach a healthy BMI. I have at least 100 pounds to lose. I am on sparkpeople everyday. Although I despise tracking my calories it is what works for me as well. Let me know if you want to be my accountability partner. I could use the help!

Thank You!

IF YOU ARE TIRED OF STARTING OVER STOP GIVING UP!

Hello!

I am a 25 year old mother to 3 month old twin girls. I am looking to lose 40 pounds and maintain a healthy lifestyle- mind, body, and soul.

I am looking for an accountability partner and support...

I am just starting to realize the power I hold in my hands-the power that allows me to decide if today will be a great or horrible day for me. I am tired of letting others have that power over me. Today is the day I take that power back.

Hi! My name is Leslie. I'm 39 years old. Married and mother to one. I've been on my weight loss journey off and on for about 6 years. The most I've lost was a little over 80 lbs. Over the past few years, I've put about 40 lbs back on. I've tried various weight loss methods including Atkins, calorie counting and numerous other popular diets. Right now, I'm doing calorie counting since that's what seems to works best for me. I have about 90-100 lbs in total that I would like to lose.
I've really slacked off and would love to get and stay on track. I know now, I cannot do this alone and need a buddy to lean on. I will be there for you any way I can and hope the same from you.
I would like to find an accountability partner who is female and has around the same amount of weight to lose since I will be on my journey for a while.
I hope to hear from you soon and thanks so much for taking the time to read this!

Hey guys!

My name is Cheyenne. I'm a 22 year old college student, whose weight has been fluctuating like crazy for several years (anywhere from 210 to 120!). I have gained quite a bit of weight, though, and would like to lose 38 pounds to get to my goal of 130 by the time I graduate. I'm really afraid to go into this alone, because I don't want to yo-yo again! If you're interested in being my buddy, send me a message.
