I am in the same boat as a lot of you on here. I too, am new. I am looking forward to losing 85lbs and am in need of some support friends to hold me accountable. I took the liberty to add a few of you on here, but then got all confused going back and forth. LOL So, please feel free to add me as a friend if you want! :-)


Love to all~

I stumbled across this place while looking for an exercise partner. I started reading the book and it has me excited about being a healthier person and shedding my excess weight.

I'm looking for a buddy to help me keep feeling that motivational push to stay on track.

Add me as a buddy :-) I don't have ANY yet! I just signed up Friday and got on to look around the site a lot more today. I'm reading the book and really feel good about my upcoming journey. I want to lose over 100 pounds over all, but I'll start with 3 to get me into the next weight digit :-)

Hi, I am as well new to this, having joined just now! I have about 60-70 pounds I would like to lose. About 4 months ago a group of friends and I started the couch potato to 5K and I completed my first 5K. Unfortunately i wound up with pneumonia just in time for the the one we were training for. Kinda sad, got me down for a little while but now I'm back on track. Still can't run (and when I say run, my daughter often tells me that she can walk faster then I run) but hope to be able to in the next week or two. I need a little support to be able to keep on track and would love to be there for others of they need it.

Hi ! I could do with a buddy or two, too. I signed up for SP a couple of years ago and went astray for a while (lost some, regained some) but I'm commited again and I'd like to make it stick this time. Maybe team support will make a difference ? I never tried this anyway but alone.

Like a lot of the previous posters, I'm new to the site and I need someone (or multiple someones!) to keep me in check. Since I didn't start the thread I feel a little weird adding people who have responded, so to all those who have posted: Feel free to add me to your friend list!

For those of you needing buddies, you can go ahead and add me too! It's great to have motivational stories or hear your buddy is working out. Sometimes, that's enough motivation to get you doing your exercises!!! I have 65 lbs to lose myself, and after finally cracking down on myself, I have almost met my halfway point. There is lots of information here, feel free to ask any questions!!! Now to post and add some buddies!

To everyone that is posting that they're new, I hope that you find the encouragement and direction that you're looking for in order to make this the last time you have to lose the weight. It's not going to be easy, but there are so many wonderful people here to help, as well as a TON of information if you take the time to explore the site completely. I will say that you are definitely in a great place and I look forward to seeing your progress.

I started out over 3 years ago, lost a bunch, gained it all back, with some friends, and then last year (6/5/10) put the effort in and dropped 110lbs.With some hard work and dedication to the journey, you will be able to see results too. I have faith in you. We're all here for you.

Start: 286 (6/5/10)
Previous Lowest: 222 (8/31/08)

Goals:
Next Milestone: 222 -12/21/10 reached
Then: 220 by Christmas 2010 (reached 12/31/10)
Then: 207 (reached 2/12/11)
Then: 200 (reached 3/1/2011)
Final: 180 (reached 4/23/2011) - 173 reached on 4/30/11
Currently in reevaluation stage as to next goal

Hi there! It's my second day and already I feel like hiding. I am not sure what and where to start. I see there are plenty of new people here as well. Feel free to contact me or /and add me as your buddy. I need to learn more discipline and so I decided to write a small blog entry every day. You are welcome to join me! What do you say we make it a new challenge by writing a blog entry every day, describing the ups and downs of the day? I'm still very lost on this site, so it's the best I can offer to reach out to others, new and old.

One step at a time.

I am in the same boat. I just joined on Friday, so not a week in yet. I don't have any spark friends ;( yet. My weight loss goals are about the same as yours, and nobody can understand that unless they are there or have been there. Let's stick together and help each other!

I joined today and have 93lbs to loose! I would like the support of someone to keep me on track and who I can support back. I asked my son to help keep me on track. He is 6 and takes his job very seriously, but it just isn't the same when you're the only one struggling. emoticon
