Hello! I'm Sunny, my Husband and I have been married 32 years and we have one Son and a new Daughter (in-law!). I am here to lose weight while fighting diabetes and sarcoidosis. I'm looking for a Partner(s) that want to encourage one another on this journey. I've started eating a more mediterranean diet and love it, but my problem is finding an exercise program that works for me. I'm at that stage where my mind says "Oh, I can do that" and my body says "No, you can't" LOL If you would like to Partner with me please private message me and add me as a friend!

Howdy,

I'm Mike a 30 year old father of 3 awesome little ones. They are 6(boy), 6(girl), and 5(boy). Twins was the first go around and apparently didn't have enough to do with twins so we added another. I'm a network administrator so unfortunately I'm on my booty most of the day, but try to get up and move about as much as time permits. I have a long journey ahead of me so I would be looking for someone that is sticking around for awhile on their journey as well. I'm committed to doing this but as I've seen it never hurts to have someone else to push you or just give you a cheer or an ear when you need it most.

Thanks.

Hi,

I am 51 year old mother of a 22 year old college student. I am in the process of rediscovering myself and enjoying the process. I am looking for an accountability partner. I would like to connect with someone who I can check in with daily. I do like to go to the gym and enjoy many different activities such as live theatre and the ballet. I do have a great sense of humor and love to laugh. Thanks and Blessings to everyone. You can do it! emoticon emoticon

Hi, I'm a 60 year old woman with about 100 lbs to lose. I have been bedridden for the last 3 yrs so I am starting slow on the exercise but I am attempting to do something every day if even for minutes at a time. I have started to be accountable for my food intake and through both efforts I am currently down 3 pounds.

I love to read, watch TV and am planning to move this year. So getting ready to list the house is going to be an effort and an emotional challenge to repack what is left from my "friends" selling my belongings 'cause they couldn't wait for me to die. See my Spark page for my last 3+ years history.

I am very happy now and look forward for the future. If I am not what you are looking for as a support partner may you find the right fit and have lots of success. God bless and keep making beneficial choices for yourself. Also Keep Smiling!

May we all make beneficial choices each day. May God Bless you and yours.

I am a 29 year old mom to 2 young kids (ages 4 and 2). I have tried the last 3 years to lose weight but each time I get interrupted by moving! We are NOT moving this summer so I plan to lose it for good. 2 years ago I lost 40 lbs and only had 15-20 left to lose and then after the move I gained 20 back. Last year I lost the 20 again but then gained it back plus 5 more! I hate the yo-yo diet trend I am on. I have about 40 lbs to lose.
I am doing the C25K program every other day and doing the Kinect Fitness Evolved DVD the other days. Trying to get up early to get it done before other things happen to get in my way!
I need someone to help keep me on track!

Hi Sparkies,
My name is Gail I am a 47yo mum, misfit and Seinfeld fan from Australia.

I would love to have a like minded person with a sense of humor to become my accountability partner.

I have tried to lose 30lbs+ ever since having my first baby (14 years ago) and just haven't managed to stick with something long enough. I recently started T-Tapp which is working for me but I fear without a partner I will lose motivation yet again and I don't want to do that to myself this time.
Having a partner will make this journey more interesting and fun, someone totally in your corner, having a laugh and maybe a cry from time to time, us two against the world of saboteurs!

Love my family and friends but they cant really relate to desperately wanting to lose this excess baggage (and even sabotage me from time to time).
I know supporting someone and receiving support will be the key to finally sending my baggage packing! (that's just not funny, sorry)

If anyone is interested in checking in daily via email and/or text please send me a private message, or add me as a friend :-0

Hi my name is momtoconnor2003 (Sandy) and my accountability partner has left spark for Weight Watchers. I am now looking for a new partner. I prefer someone who will check in daily and keep each other accountable. I lost 9 pounds the month of January. I still have a long way to go wanting to lose another 80 pounds. My goal for February is to lost 5 pounds! I have been sick with a cold for over a week but I am hoping to get back into fitness starting tomorrow.

Hi! Iím looking for friends and an accountability partner! (Youíre shocked, I can tell.)

A little about my physical self: Iím 36, 5í1 and 110 pounds. I could stand to lose some fat but would like to gain some muscle. Not worried about the number on the scale. Really just want to be very fit, toned and healthy.

My struggles: I sometimes donít eat enough, and I have a tough time meeting my minimum calorie goals, but Iím trying. Iím eating three meals a day plus snack (huge progress for me). Iím cooking most days of the week and choosing healthy options. For workouts, which I just started a couple of weeks ago, Iím doing DVDs (The Firm and Jillian) and skipping rope. I had to quit running due to severe shin splints, so Iím trying to build up calf and foot strength before I start that again. And come spring, Iíll be back on the tennis courts, chasing errant balls while my son works on learning racquet control!

Anyway, I realize my problems and goals donít exactly mesh with most othersí here, but I sure hope someone will find me to be a worthy, compatible partner. As far as friends and general support buddies go, Iíll take as many as I can get. I log on every day, so please feel free to PM me or leave a message on my SparkPage if you feel weíd be a good accountability match, or even if you just want to be buddies. I look forward to meeting new friends and tackling our health and fitness challenges together!

Hi, my name is Maureen, but most people call me Mo. I'm 65 years old, mother of 3 grown children, and grandma to 7 beautiful children. I'm a retired RN, and now work part-time as a library assistant, a job I find far less stressful than the medical field.

I was successful losing 25 pounds with the Weight Watchers (my goal was 50). I thought I could continue on my own, so I quit going to meetings. Sadly I have regained 15 of that 25 so now my goal is to lose 40 pounds by the end of August, which is my 45th wedding anniversary. I really feel the accountability that WW has is the reason I was successful in losing, so I want a partner to help me stay on track.

My name is Kelly and I live in Anchorage Alaska. I am 48, married with a son age 14. I have about 100 lbs. to loose but my ultimate goal is to be healthy and able to move freely with out pain. I have been yo-yo dieting most of my life. I have taken so many weight loss classes and tried so many different ways to loose the weight. I have been successful in the past but I always let something get in the way and the weight comes back again. Well this time it is going to work.

I have recently found out that I am allergic or sensitive to processed grains, corn, soy, rice, dairy, milk, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, & eggs. Boy is this hard to do. You do not realize how much you miss something until you can not eat it. The biggest problem if I eat these foods at the moment is inflammation in my joints and it causes lots of problems when you can not exercise and barely able to walk for a couple of day. So elimination is my goal. I am reading about the Paleo style of eating and may be able to get some new ideas to get creative with cooking. I tend to eat the same thing over and over and then get tired of it.

I'm looking for a partner(s) that would like to join me on my journey or that just needs someone to help along the way. I need some one to help me be accountable as my family (love them to death) does not seem to understand.

Hello everyone!
My name is Angel. I am a 33 yr old mother of three, living in central NY. The goals I am working towards include conquering my binge eating and morphing my somewhat sedentary life to an active one. Specifically, I am working toward losing 50 lbs this year, as well as running a 5K and obstacle run by the end of the year. I have a new found love of group fitness classes also. My ideal partner would be someone who is also working on training for some kind of run, whether you're a beginner or expert doesn't matter to me, I am equally interested in meeting either/or--just be aware that I am a beginner, so if you need someone with expertise, it will be quite a while before I am any help! I would also like to meet others who have been trying different fitness classes, I think it would be fun to compare notes on the various kinds out there. To learn more about me, check out my post in the other introduction thread (though it's not much different) or my sparkpage. Best of luck to everyone!

Hi, I'm Melissa, I'm 38, I teach HIIT (high intensity interval training), run, and just started Tracy Anderson Metamorphosis. I'd like to lose 20 lbs by summer. I'm kind of a night time binge eater, so I could really use an accountability partner. Visit my page and add me as a friend if you're wanting a partner too. I sign on at least twice daily.

Happiness is a choice. I base my happiness on my own accomplishments and the blessings I've been given.

Good Afternoon,

My name is Danielle, I'm 34, and although I have been a member of SparkPeople for several years, I've never really taken it that seriously. I would eat better/exercise/track for a while, and then life would get in the way somehow and I would give up and stop logging on. Then I'd get back on, and then give up again. This time is a little different for me though. My New Years Resolution is to get healthy and my current goal is to lose 100 pounds by the end of the year. So I've jumped head first into everything that Sparkpeople has to offer and so far I'm seeing really promising results. I'm finding that the more involved I get with the various SparkTeams and with my SparkFriends, the better and more motivated I feel all around.

I am looking for an accountability partner to help keep each other motivated, work through issues either of us are having, chat about anything and everything, etc. I currently login every day, so it would be wonderful to match up with someone with that same level of activity. Although it would be ideal to find someone with similar circumstances as me, it would also be interesting to partner with someone completely different and maybe we can both teach each other a few things. Please let me know if anything I have said has struck a chord with you. Let's do this! emoticon

Hi Bev,

I have a similar situation as yourself and have yo yo dieted for what seems like forever. I am serious about losing 50 pounds too. I would love to have this accomplished by June as well. I recently sold my Harley Davidson motorcycle so I do understand your love of the cycle.

I used to run, bicycle, take karate, play tennis and raquet ball....have never snow skied but have water skied in the past.

If you have not yet found a partner, please consider me. Thanks!

A year from now, you will wish you started today.

If you exercised when you first thought about it, you would be finished by now.

Suck it up and one day, you will be able to suck it in. *All quotes from my wise friend who lost 98 pounds.

This is a copy of the post I made in the introduction thread, with a little addition.

Hello All,

Iím glad I found this team because Iíve really wanted to find a partner.

Iím 41, divorced, and a mother of four wonderful children, ages 21, 18, 14, and 8. I work part time and go to school. My plan is to become a librarian (right now Iím a circulation clerk). I live with my boyfriend, whom I adore. Right now I weigh 213 lbs. Thatís down from my highest weight which was 225. My goal is to reach 165. Thatís what I weighed before I started having babies. Iím 5í11Ē so Iím nice and slim at that weight. I donít have any major medical issues, but I am bipolar and on medication. The meds help a lot but I still have to put up with moderate shifts in mood/behavior.

I donít have much in the way of friends. I would sure like a partner for mutual support and accountability. I would like someone who is willing to check-in just about every day and who also is willing to chat about things beyond losing weight/getting healthy. Someone close to my age would be ideal, but Iím flexible. If you check out my Spark page you can see what things I like to do. I'd be glad to have more than one partner. I'm taking two easy classes this semester and have more time than usual.

Happy Sparking!

Hi, all--

I'm looking for an exercise accountability partner, someone I can commit an activity plan to in the morning, then confirm with him or her that I've completed it at night.

I'm 44 and have a herniated disk in my lower back, so there are some limitations on what I can do. But I've definitely used that as an excuse not to exercise regularly far too long.

I currently have a 24-day 10-minutes-a-day exercise streak going. I've been doing a combination of yoga stretches and walking, which I love. If I'm going to make significant progress, however, I need to increase the duration and intensity of my sessions.

Looking forward to making a connection!

Best,
Megan

Hey!

I've had an accountability partner before and, technically, I still have her...but she's not very active on here. I need someone who is consistent and willing to keep me on track.

I'm 23 (24 in May) and I have another 26 lbs to lose. I've lost 7 since 1/1/14 and I am super dedicated to changing my life.

I'm looking for someone who is young (under 35, ideally) and also has a similar weight loss goal. I am a Christian and am working really hard to surrender everything to Him this year as well...so a Christian would be ideal as well. However, I'm really not that picky.

I have a 2.5 year old boy, am a single mom, I teach 7th grade, and I'm in graduate school. I'm super busy, but I AM DEDICATED TO THIS LIFESTYLE CHANGE!!!!!!!!! Someone come and support me ;)

If you're interested, send me a message on here!

Hello, my name is Terri. I am a 57 year young mother of one son and two step-children, all married. I have 5 grandchildren and I am eagerly awaiting a call from my own son telling me that him and his wonderful wife are expecting their first child. I am a retired Property Manager. Really I am disabled due to cardiac problems and wish I was still working. I am not adapting well to retired life. My cardiac problems prohibit me from exercising the way I would like to.

I have become very sedentary and because of that I have gained a lot of weight. I have never been skinny, but never as heavy as I am. I quit smoking in 2005 and gained; then in 2010 began losing weight and went from 235 down to 205 and then the cardiac problems hit me. Now I started SparkPeople at 243.8, the heaviest I have ever been. I don't like it!

I found a "seated cardio" video on the SP website and I keep saying I am going to try it, but fear is holding me back. Whenever my heart rate increases I have terrible chest pains. I have been doing just OK on my food tracking and my first weigh-in was 3.6 pounds down. I really need someone who I have to be accountable to everyday.

If anyone can help me, I would be most grateful.

Terri

Hi. My name is Ani. I am 56 years old, mother of two beautiful girls and blessed to be grandmother of three absolutely beautiful grandchildren. Oh, I am also a high school business teacher.

Health issues with my mother made me realize the importance of establishing a healthy life style. I have been a yoyo dieter my entire life. I lose a few and then gain a bunch. I made a vow on New Year's Day to change my lifestyle. The eating healthy has not been too difficult. Exercising --- not so much. It seems I have the ability to come up with a multitude of excuses of "why I can't". When there is no reason why I shouldn't.

My significant other isn't cooperating much and I feel alone. Having a buddy to share frustrations, accomplishment and whatever with, would be awesome.

Kimberly,
You sound like an awesome person with her act together. I am a 52 year mother of three adult children, a nurse, beachbody coach, and just got engaged at Christmas. I have about 15 pounds to lose and actually its the same 15 pounds I have battled my whole adult life. Lose it gain it, lost it gain it.etc. But Im tired of doing this so by diet and exercise and changing my lifestyle for good I'm hoping to win the battle. I got serious at Thanksgiving time and have been doing Turbofire exercise DVD's and drinking shakeology for one meal of the day and I have lost 5 lbs. and 5 inches. I struggle though daily and would love to have somebody to help me. And I would love to help you!

Hello! My name is Rachel and I'm 27 years old. I have about 200 pounds to lose so I'm going to be here for awhile! In the past I have tried everything from diet pills to starving myself but I'm through with that. I'm trying to eat healthier and exercise as much as possible. I'm not married and I don't have any kids but I'm happy. I would love to have as many accountability partners as possible so feel free to contact me. I can use all the help I can get and hope that in the process I can help others.

Hi! I'm in my early thirties, am married with no kids (yet...?), work a bunch, and would like a partner to help keep me accountable.

I'm a pretty positive person. I'm working to lose 100 pounds and have had just about that same amount to lose since I was 14, so I'm working on losing it by getting healthier and eating cleaner in general, not on a specific diet.

I love working out, but do it less than I should--mostly recumbent bike and music videos, but also yoga. I live in central Georgia (state not country). I'm also trying to lose on the cheap as much as possible, so I'd love someone who could offer up fresh ideas.

Have fun!

Hi my name is Kimberley and I am a wife, a mother of two, a sister, a a daughter and a homeowner. I am a property manager of my home as I rent out rooms by the week or the month.

I have been here before but I vowed to never give up. I am back again and would love a couple of accountability friends.

I weigh 260 and should weigh 149 as my high end but my goal is 160 at this moment. I am not on a diet but I am trying to eliminate gluten for a couple of weeks to see if I have a sensitivity.

This is day 3. I am starting to feel better, I think.

Hi, I'm Debbie and I would love to have one or more accountability partners. I'm 48 years old, married and have three daughters (20, 17 and 11). I want to lose a total of 80 lbs by the end of the year. I'm already down 17 lbs - yeah! I have tried and failed too many times. I always lose focus or motivation a few weeks into my plan. This time, I am determined to lose the weight. I want to be healthy for my family and for myself. I want to have better fitness. I have lost self confidence in myself because of my weight and I want to gain it back. Right now, I am 100% committed. I am motivated, focused and enthusiastic. I need a partner who will be there for me when I lose my way. A partner to remind me that I'm worth it.

Hi my name is Tia and I am 51 years young. I would love to find an accoutability partner or two. I am very active due to my work and busy schedule but need to make time to get in formal exercise. I know what to eat but sometimes make excuses for eating things that are not necessarily conducive to getting to a healthy weight. That is where having a partner comes in...I would like to lose at least 70-80lbs to get my weight proportionate to my height. I have a cruise scheduled for this coming Christmas so getting the weight off would be awesome. My main reason though is health and to gain body confidence. I know I'd make a great partner because this is important to me. So if you are equally committed I'd love to hear from you. I am a divorced mother of a 17 year old who is headed to University of Michigan in the fall and a 13 year old who will be heading off to high school. So if you can relate do get in touch! You can email me and add me as a friend and I will get in touch.

Hi CHAMELEONFAERIE!

You sound a little like me so I wondered if we could help each other as partners? I'm alot older than you , 63 as of today, but that might make it more fun, right? I live in Seattle, Washington in the US. I have a great husband and family who are more than supportive. My two daughters are about your age and are both married with 2 kiddos each. I am a technical writer whose specialty is instructional manuals and informational toolkits.

I have been on every diet known to man and think this time Ive found the right lifestyle - eat less and move more. I've lost 32 pounds of the 65 I need to lose before I get my knee replacement surgery.

Let me know if you are interested in a friend on this journey and I'll do my best to be a faithful encourager.

Cheers!
Laurie

Hi! I'm 29, will be turning 30 May 4, 2014 and want to lose 30 pounds by then. I have some extra challenges when it comes to losing weight, I have cerebral palsy and am unable to walk and do most exercises. This inability to get out and do things makes me feel bored, lonely and down sometimes, and that probably contributes to my overeating at times, too. But it also means keeping as active as I can and maintaining a healthy weight are even more important for me. I also can't weigh/eat very much without being overweight, as I'm small, 4'11". My current weight of 130 would be fine for many people, but I'm aiming for 100, maybe even less as I still had a big belly when I weighed this much before, though I think a lack of muscle and the "skinny fat" problem may have been plaguing me there, as I lost the weight entirely through diet, no exercise. My weight has varied from upper "normal" range to moderately overweight, but I can't remember a time when I didn't "look fat" to myself, no matter what I weighed. So with that plus my disability, I feel like I'll never be happy with my body and that is partly why I have trouble feeling motivated to lose weight. I'm going to try to be positive and see and treat my body as a part of God's beautiful Creation this year though! Would love to find a partner who is also dealing with limited mobility and/or being "fun-sized", but open to anyone who needs a partner.
