Hi everyone! I am new and look forward to being on the team. My main exercise is walking and it seems to be what works for me. That, and a positive attitude ... I thought this would be a great team to join.

Hiya everyone!

I'm Nicola and I'm from England.

Motivation is often a big problem for me, especially with my mental health issues.

Often I find I'm motivated inside.. but.. it's actually getting up and doing things that is where I just fall down.

:-(

Welcome!!! I think steps count as exercise as long as you incorporate other things too. I always count my steps. I try to get 10,000 everyday however I don't always succeed but that's okay...I'm still getting movement!

Hello All. My Name is Carollee ( FitnessRebel) and I am from California. I just joined SP, and have been enjoying looking around the site. I joined the team because I am upbeat, motivated and have a very positive attitude. On December 31st, 2009 I decided to take my body and my life back from the out of shape person who decided to occupy it for a while. I haven't looked back. I can not wait to get to know everyone.

Hello, My name is Michelle and I am 40, with a house full of adult kids. Work full time, and help take care of the grandbaby while daughter works and goes to college. Hard to keep motivated and positive with all that goes on around my house. 4 kids, daughter 21 with 1 yr old grandbaby, son 20, stepson 20 and stepson 17. Happily Married also.

I am looking to lose 36 lbs and need some support groups to help me, and the challenges help also. Used to be on Jillian Michaels website and exercised to her videos, lost like 18 lbs but fell off the wagon for a couple years. now weight is back up to the weight I was before. Am excited to get back on track, get my energy back and be healthy.

I can identify with that 'lack of discipline' comment emoticon ! I've learned NOT to keep junk in the house. "Too much junk makes too much Michele"(that's my name, also, but spelled with 1 'l')is my motto. emoticon I have an 8 yr old daughter and she doesn't need it, either. Fruits & veggies. Then, if Amber does want chips or something we walk to the corner store and she gets a little bag.

Where are you living now? I read your Page-you've been everywhere just about.

Have a wonderful evening!

Hi all,
My name is Michelle. I joined SparkPeople a couple of days ago (found the app and downloaded it to the ipod)! I've been looking around and it looks like a great site.
I decided to joine because I've always had 'issues' with my image, I've never felt happy about my weight (even though now, I see pictures of the past and think to myself "WHAT was I thinking, I looked great"); but now, not only do I still have these body image issues, I also feel for the first time, like a yo-yo dieter!
I've gained the weight through pregnancy and post-pregnancy lack of discipline. I know the right basics to lose weight (eat healthy, portion control, and exercise), I don't believe in pills, extreme diets, or silly easy fixes, I know they don't work. Ijust know that I am not disciplined enough, I am an emotional eater, and I love my food.
I'm a relatively healthy eater (fresh fruits, veggies, hardly ever do the fast food bit, cook most of our meals from scratch, etc), but the snacking and the emotional eating, have beaten my will power until now.
I guess, to make it short, I want to learn to be more optimistic about my efforts, not sabotage myself, and this is all probably linked to motivation and positive attitude; that is why I'm here! So "Hi" and I hope to hear and learn from everyone!

Hi! My name is Jan. I'm not new to SP, but I admit I haven't been making the best use of it for awhile now. So today I decided to start fresh with a more focused attitude. I saw this team under fitness, and it seemed like a good place to help me be more accountable to working out and staying on my eating plan. Looking forward to getting to know you all.

Moira, that is a big change and a stree factor having your daughter & granddaughter with you.

52KGS, that's a good idea about photographing your meals. I'm looking forward to seeing them!

Dusty, I don't know if you've seen it yet or not but if you go to your Points Page, scroll down a bit til you come to the One Time Challenge. The last one in that box is SparkSavings.com. I just found it this mrng. I got into a little bit and am definitely going to check it out tonite after my daughter goes to bed. It looks interesting!

Have a great day!

I am new to SP, but loving it. A little bit about me, I was laid off about a year and a half ago from my corporate job. After the initial freak out of being unemployed, I have b4een able to go back to my true love which is acting, and working with kids. The pay is a fraction of what I used to make, but the payoffs are enormous. I am trying to lose weight to improve my health and qualify for better roles. Also learning lots of new frugal tips, and ways to stretch a dollar.
Thanks for all the welcomes.
Dusty

I am new to this team as well and in need of a big motivating kick-start.
The past months have been stressful with my daughter and granddaughter) moving back in with us. It seems I have lost all focus on what I was doing for myself. This looks like a great place to be and I will be there for all you guys whenever I can as well! emoticon

Hello everyone!

My name is Ashleigh. I have been on Spark for about 3 weeks now and just joined this group last night. I am 24 and work as a Special Education teacher in WA state -- love my job! Anyway, after spending the last 3 years taking care of everyone else, I finally got warn out and realized I need to start taking care of myself so here I am! I have had a lot of trying life experiences the past few years and have found myself getting less and less positive so I was happy to find a group dedicated to motivation and positive attitudes as that is something I am trying to focus on now!

I look forward to getting to know some of you better. Feel free to add me as a friend or send me a message anytime!

Take care and good luck to everyone...



Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.
