Hello! I am 29 and I really need to lose a lot weight. I live in Southern California. I really could use some new friends. My motivation is medium right now and could really use someone to share in this journey with!


I wake up every day with the realization that this is it, that there's only one shot at this life and I can either enjoy the ride and live it to its fullest and to my highest potential or I can stay the way I am.

Reigniting my flame !

Hi! My name is Kristine, 27 and live in Ohio. I have been a member for a while but never really took advantage of it until now. I'm primarily looking for a casual, e-mail buddy.

My main goal for my work-outs this time is just to be in better shape. I have always struggled with my weight. Every other time I've exercised steadily and "dieted" I lose maybe three or four pounds over the course of as many months and get discouraged. I am now around 260, the highest I've ever been, and I want to see if this time can be different. Honestly, I would be thrilled to drop 10 pounds just because I've never been able to, though 180 is my absolute dream. But to keep myself motivated, fitness and not weight loss has to be my priority.

See my page for more about me. Other random things...

-Librarian
-Single
-Introvert
-My primary exercise is walking or using an elliptical

Ideally, I would like to buddy up with someone with similar backgrounds, but if I struck your interests, feel free to message me :)

I am Erin and I am a 28 y.o. and at my heaviest EVER at 266 :( I have been very active in my past, but for some reason just gave up on it...and it's frustrating! I live a very busy life and making excuses is way to easy for me! I am looking for a motivational buddy/buddies to start a small group and help keep each other accountable because these large groups are extremely difficult to really form that bond...if anyone is interested let me know!

Hi my name is Caitlin. I'm 25, single, professional (sit at a desk all day) and currently 235 (that hurts to type). I joined SP last year but never really did anything with it. I am a pretty big geek/nerd and live in a place that makes it hard to exercise for cheap/free for 6 months of the year (oh winter, the heartless season). I would love to have an accountability partner to keep me motivated.

“Procrastination is the fear of success. People procrastinate because they are afraid of the success that they know will result if they move ahead now. Because success is heavy, carries a responsibility with it, it is much easier to procrastinate and live on the ‘someday I’ll’ philosophy.” ~Denis Waitley

Hi, My name is Brandy I am 28 with about 50 pounds to lose to start off with. I have tried to do this on my own before but always slack off and then give up. I need an accountability partner to help me keep motivated to eat right and to work out. I need a better healthier lifestyle for me and my daughter. She is picking up on all of my bad habits instead of the good ones.

I'm Chubby Fencer. I'm 28, recently married, have 50 lbs to lose as my FIRST goal (90 total) and I'm looking for an Accountability-Buddy-LITE.

I think I will stay the most motivated by having lots of friends who regularly post about their days in their activity feeds or blogs within the site. The reason I would prefer this setup is because I want to have plenty of reasons to come here daily, but my schedule is a little crazy and I can't always reply to longer emails or have a phone conversation with you. But checking in on my tablet during a slow period of work and study? Sure!

I hope to befriend you!

Hi All,

I'm new to SparkPeople...as in I've been a member less than ten minutes. But the fact is, I am tired of trying to stay motivated on my own and need someone to help hold me accountable as I begin my weight-loss journey.
As for me, I currently live in the land of cheese and beer, a.k.a, Wisconsin....so staying on track can sometimes be difficult. It seems I start off strong but slowly lose motivation over time when it comes to eating better and exercising, and that needs to stop.
While I want to shed the weight, I also want to start feeling healthier and happier in my own skin. So if you're interested at all in helping and holding one another accountable and just being there for support, let me know. I wish you all luck on your journey!

-Sarah

Hey everybody.
I'm Sammee, and I'm sure you all know why I'm posting here. I'm looking for an accountability buddy, or rather, somebody who will "yell" at me when I skip my workout and stuff like that. Or even just somebody to talk to about progress, recipes, books, the weather, anything. I tend to like being random like that.
I'm 22, work part-time, and am trying to get down to about 125 from where I'm at right now (179. Lost 6lbs so far--go me!).
Message me if you're interested, maybe? ^_^

Hi there, it sounds like we all have a lot in common! I am 28, I have two boys, and I am currently in college. I am also looking for a buddy to diet with. We could message with each other every night and share how our progress went for the day, also we could weigh in every Sunday and share our progress. Today is my first day and I am weighing in at 195.0 lbs, my goal is to get down to 124.0 lbs by New years day. I want to start 2014 off with being healthy and having my confidence back ( I was 125 lbs pre-children) Let me know if you are interested in being my spark buddy!! My name is Martie by the way :)

Hello everyone!!! I am looking for an accountability buddy as well. I am a 29 yr old SAHM. I have some depression/anxiety issues for which i am on medication for.

Hi everyone!! I'm still looking for an accountability buddy!
I'm 27 and employed full time. I don't have kids and live in the Midwest (central time). My goal is to work out every morning between 7-8am. I weigh about 220 and my goal is 150. I really enjoy working out after I do it, but it is REALLY hard for me to get up and work out.
I would like an accountability buddy who is interested in checking in with each other daily/ every other day. I want to be able to text/ call to support each other. Email is cool too but I don't get on SP daily so we would need to exchange personal email addys if that's what you want to do.
I really need someone who is able to commit to regular contact. I have no problem texting you every day, but when I'm not doing well- I'm going to try to hide. And when that happens, I need my accountability buddy to pop in and kick my butt. :) Thanks!!!

Hello :)

I feel like I'm writing (and reading through) a personal ad, it's a little intimidating. I'm 26, will be 27 soon, and trying to lose at least 80 lbs. I am looking for an accountability partner who has a similar goal.

In case it matters...
I have no kids
I'm in a LDR

Hi there emoticon

Maybe we could be buddies. I'm at 205 today and looking to be around 145 or so. I haven't tried to do this with a friend yet, but I need to.

I'm 25 and need to lose 55 pounds (I would like to lose more in the long run, but figure it is a good starting point). I graduate this May, am a young professional, and like artsy/geeky things.

I'd love to have an accountability buddy or two to chat with regularly about this sort of stuff. I find having friends to share support really makes a big difference. If you're interested, please send me a message!

I used SparkPeople a few years ago and lost 30 pounds, so I know this can work. Just need to focus better and keep the weight off this time!

Hi everyone! I'm Shelly. I just turned 27. I am single, have no kids, and a full time job. I live in the midwest, US. I need someone to help keep my accountable. It really makes me angry that I can't do this on my own, but I can't. I need someone for phone calls, texts, skypeing, emails, WHATEVER. I need help. I need someone to hold me accountable. It would be nice to have more than one accountability buddy...just in case we're both having an "off day" and try to wiggle out of working out. :) My goal right now is to work out every morning, M-Sa. Right now Sunday is my rest day, but that may change to Wednesdays soon. My work out consists of Power 90 ST and I use different cardio workouts to keep me entertained. Right now it's been salsa dancing dvds! Thanks!!
