Greetings fellow Sparkers,

I've been a member for a while; I'm looking to lose those last few pounds with this challenge.

Let's make it happen!

Good Luck to everyone!

I hope I am not too late to participate. I have only been a member of Spark for about a week. I enjoy physical challenges so I am looking forward to new workouts and challenges.

Every time I practice gratitude I feel better about what is happening in that moment.

Hey everyone :) I'm going to Ireland on the 26th, I probably won't wear a bathing suit lol but I think this is a fun challenge. I'm not out to lose weight - it would be nice but I've finally discovered that my weight doesn't really decide what I can do, I make those decisions. So I'm saying to hell with it and I'm doing what I want and trying to have fun and not crap my pants out of fear at the same time :) lol sorry if that's too graphic but Ireland gives me very mixed feelings at the moment. Hope we all have fun anyways :)

Hello sparks members!

My name is Weeden, I have been a member of Sparks for a while. I have lost 18 pounds so far, most of it through sparkspeople. I am getting married in a little over a month and still have about 5 lbs until I reach my goal weight. I had a baby not long ago and really want to get MY body back to normal. I am going to Aruba for my honeymoon and really want to look good in a bikini. I am exciced to get in shape.

If you've never been there you cant imagine how it feels, if you have you cant imagine how it doesn't....

Hi, everyone!

I'm no different than some of you. I am nervous & scared about the boot camp challenge. I've never done anything like this b/c I think I'm afraid I'll fail!

We're in this together. That means something to me.
Good luck everyone!

Keep Smilin'!

HI. I haven't really been able to stick to anything since my mother passed away 2 years ago. I have had a few streaks of maybe a week or two, but nothing to really write home about. I hope this will help me stick to something and make a little progress to motivate me to keep going.

Hi everyone!! I am so excited to begin this bootcamp, I am hoping it is just the motivation I need. I had been doing very well and have since fallen off the wagon and into cupcake river. Even though I don't think this will quite get me into swimsuit shape, I think it could definately make a dent.

Hi everyone, I am looking forward to a challenge.
I have plenty to loose. I am at 240 and need to get down near 150. SO this will be good to burn off plenty of weight as I don't have to worry about trying to loose only 5 pounds. emoticon

Hi all! This is just what I need to get out of my rut I've been in since stopping smoking. I want to re-focus my fitness goals. I will be walking in BloomsDay for the first time(Spokane, Wa)and I thought might as well do a boot camp for the first time too!

Hello all,
This is my first boot camp and I am really excited. I have lost 20 lbs since January and was doing really well exercising and watching what I eat, but over the last month I am losing focus. This boot camp is just what I need to re-focus and get back on track. I am looking forward to the challenge.

"What perfect timing!" That was my first thought when I opened my email this evening. I'm actually going to Hawaii in one month and my adorable pinup style swimsuit is uncomfortably snug. I just joined the Curves/Avon fitness study and I'm trying to hit the circuit every evening...but I think getting in a quick workout in the morning might just be the edge I need to trim away a little more chicken-fat!
Good luck to everyone!

Hey...
This is my first boot camp. I lost 39 pounds last year between Jan and Jul. Extreme back problems, knee problems and a marriage break got me off track. I have been fighting to not gain, but have gained a few pounds back. I hope this will give me the boost I need to lose 40 pounds!
Good Luck all! emoticon

Hello everybody! I am so excited about this. Perhaps this is just what I need to get into gear. I hate working out! But an a RN, I know how important exercising can be. I walk tons of miles a day at work but not much else. I think I can do a few minutes a day. Good Luck Everyone!

Hi All! I'm Sabrina from the Fingerlakes, NY. I have a goal to be under 200 before my brothers wedding and my 30th birthday, both are in August. However, all of a sudden, starting the first part of April, I got in a very deep rut. Now, I am trying to scratch my way out of the rut. So, I signed of for the bootcamp, hoping it would kick my butt into gear.

Hi. I am Melanie from SC. I have just been plain ol' lazy. Once upon a time I was a gym fanatic. I would be now if I had the motivation, time, and income. But I have none of that, so I need some encouragement and some options. I CAN NOT celebrate my 32nd birthday in 1 1/2 months and be happy about these 160 lbs of leftover baby fat. 3 kids in 4 years will do that to ya. I left that 125 in 2002. I need it back!!! Interestingly enough, I don't care about BEING 125. I just wanna LOOK 125. I need some kinda "cut."

Hi everyone,

My name is Cherri and this is my first spark bootcamp. I'm really looking forward to participating as I am getting to a point where I am so unhappy with myself and can't let things get any worse.

I was looking back at some photos today from Nov 07 and I can't believe how skinny I was. Then I went on a trip 6 months later and had put on 15-20lbs and was miserable - well suprise surprise when I look back at those "fat' photos, I can't believe how much bigger I've gotten since then.

I really need help! I need some goals, a good plan that I can stick to, and some new friends to support me through it.

Looking forward to the bootcamp. Does it start this Sunday?

p.s. I will be running my first marathon ever in 25 days!!

Baby on board!! Due June 20th!!

Hi, my name is Susan. I am from Texas (DFW area). I have been a member for a while. My weight has been fluctuating up and down for a while. I am now ready to take the plunge and become healthier as well as eat healthier. I know this is not a diet but a life style change. I am ready to do the bootcamp!!! I have starting my food diary and that is really the best way for me to keep track of my fats and calories. I wish all of us good luck on this adventure. emoticon
