Hi Everyone! I've been on SP since Feb. 2008, but just joined this team. Who can't use more motivation and positive attitude in their life?!

I've been using Spark since January, but i decided to join this team because i've been depressed lately and could use some motivation! This seemed like a good team to help pick myself back up =)

emoticon Hello and Happy October!
I am excited to be a member of a team where "motivation and positive attitude" are the major emphasis. Proper nutrition and physical activity are important components of a healthy lifestyle, but I firmly believe that maintaining a "positive attitude" in my daily life plays a role that is also important. Without a "can do--will do" attitude, it would be more difficult to face (and overcome) the obstacles (both small and large, personal and social) that we all meet on a daily basis.

I am posting right now because I'm back home from work and I hear the rear of the biscuits in the closet, so I log to fight it!

What do you think?

Week-end are though for me because we invite friends for aperitif, we drink wine and have delicatessen (yummy), very often cheese. I release control those times.
Yesterday I have 4 mini waffles with Nutella and marmelade with the kids for their snack, we were invited to a friend of mine with her daugther.

It ruined my efforts!
I feel stupid not to be able to resist strongly to the waffles.
emoticon Soory I'm long.

Hey Kids!

I'm really excited about this team. I've been kinda drifting around for awhile now trying to find my Sparks home...so I'm hoping this is it.

Looking forward to getting to know some of you and supporting each other in this mad, crazy, awesome adventure!

Hello! I love the name of this team and that you are so actively helping one another achieve your goals! That's just what I need!

I'm new here at Spark People and have put my weight loss in two segments. The first is to loose 29 lbs and the second, if I'm successful is to loose another 25, with a total weight loss to be 54 lbs to loose! I know I'll need help if I'm to be successful and that's why I'm here!

Oh, I'm a 52 yr old mom & grandma happily married for 28 yrs to my best friend.

Looking forward to getting better acquainted with you and gaining some friends too!

Hello my name is Maria and I am new to your group. I thought I would take a quick sec to introduce myself. I am a mother, married and loving life. I am starting over again with this weight game. The one thing about playing this game is you can only fail if you don’t try. I have tried and tried and each time I get a little closer to my goal. So here I am trying again and with your help I know I can a little further. emoticon

Hi! I am Kris! I've been stuck on a plateau for months now (mostly related to medical issues) and it's getting harder to stay motivated and positive. This looks like the place to get both motivation and positive energy!

Hello, This seems like a great positive place to be to stay motivated along this journey. Sometimes it gets a little tough so I have been seeking out all the motivation I can handle. You can never have too much of that. Hopefully, I'll help someone along the way. I'd like to receive a blessing and be a blessing. Looking forward to interacting with everyone.

Hello, I am Patti. I have been on and off of Sparks for a couple of years. I seem to go on a good one or two weeks and then give up on myself. It is not that is it too hard, I just stop. In reality, I can eat right and it does not bother me and I don't feel deprived in fact have to watch that I eat at least 1300 calories on days. I can walk literally miles and miles without stress... the thing is I don't. I over feed my body things that I really don't want or like and I tell myself I will go to the gym later. When I have a work out partner or accountable to someone I am on top of my game. I am the cheerleader encouraging another 5 minutes you can do it and pushing us harder. Unfortunately, my work out partners give up faster than I do and I soon quit also.

Right now, I am having a midlife change. My company closed and the job market sucks so I am going back to school after 20 years (another thing I quit on myself) I am studying to be a nuclear tech at 41. I picked up my Trig book and immediately upon looking at the first page thought it was too hard. I did not even give my mind a chance to take in what was written before it decided it. I am here to change that mentality. It is not too hard and I CAN do anything I set my mind to do. I don't want to overstuff my body anymore and I want to find all those strong muscles buried under fat.

This is probably a little longer than I intended but that is me.

Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Stephanie, and I'm new to Spark. I was looking for a group that seemed to have a lot of positivity, and while looking at teams, the first thing I noticed was the Huddle here, it was so active, even thought it was early in the morning. Right away I was motivated, lol.
Looking forward to being a part of the team!

Greetings! My name is Alice. I just discovered SP last week and am so very happy that I found this wonderful site. Its hard to believe that I never heard of it before. The saying is true, the teacher will appear when the pupil is ready.

I have over 100+ lbs. to loose and am working on small obtainable goals. First goal is to loose 5% of my current weight. Not really sure what my ultimate goal is because I've never been at a normal weight as an adult. I've been overweight since the 1st grade-always the biggest girl in the room-but that doesn't stop me from being sparkly; which is probably annoying. Yes, I'm good with that!

Joined your team because I want to be part of a group that is all about being POSITIVE. emoticon

Hello, Everyone, I am new to this team and actualy joined last week, but haven't been here to post since joining. Due to starting work at a new nursing home.

I am 47, and am a bad pessimist, I need to learn to be more positive and learn to have more patience.

I am here to hopefully become a more positive person and get more motivated.





You have the power to change, Your life is what you make it.

Hi all! I've been looking for one more team to join to help with staying on track - I'm really glad to have found you, Motivation & Positive Attitude Team!!! Who couldn't use more of that? emoticon I've been a Spark member for a couple years, but have just started using the program since April of this year. I've been uninspired and non-committal up until now, but am now ready to get going!

Each challenge I face is a new opportunity to discover the truth that lies within - do I have the courage to face it? And, more important, "Do I have the courage to change it?"

Hello!
I'm Sara from Vegas. I'm not new to SP, but have returned to it recently to help propel me into being healthy. I also am doing p90x for the second time, and I love working out, and learning about nutrition. I've helped many others lose weight, and it feels just as good as losing it myself. I love my healthy lifestyle. I used to not be a few years ago, but now I am known as the health nut at work.

I am a stay at home mom of a four year old and a two year old. I have a knee injury so all I can really do is swim, and happy to be a member of a positive group. I look forward in supporting each other with our goals in this positive environment :) emoticon

Hello all,

I joined SP about four months ago and have lost 9 pounds so far. Saw the name of your team "Motivation & Positive Attitude Team" and thought that you are a group of people I would love to hang out with.

I am 56 years old and currently teach mental health skills to children and their family to reduce their mental healthy symptoms. I understand that attitude has a lot to do with how we live our life or how we can turn it around.

Then there are days when I need to be reminded that I can change my attitude about my weight issues. That, I too, can turn my life around by having the right attitude. I was raised in an atmosphere of negativity and "everything that can go wrong will," so I struggle on a daily basis to stay positive.

I hope you will accept me into your team so I can surround myself with positive energy and return it as well. I look forward to interacting with all of you.

Hello Motivation & Positive Attitude Team Mates!!! What a great team! I'm so glad I found you emoticon

I'm Barb! I have been a Spark member for several years but have just started using Spark this week. I've previously lost 100 lbs and am ready to finish the journey. I know this journey is a life-long one and motivation & positive attitude is a must along this path.

I look forward to getting to know you!

Greetings from Las Vegas. I'm Amethyst and I have been a member of Spark People for three years. I have had my ups and downs, but this is the best program I have ever used in my long history of trying to lose weight.

Thanks to a little war with cancer(and winning!)I have lost a lot of weight. Now it's 9 weeks since my final chemo and once my appetite started coming back and I could actually taste things again, as well as celebrating being cancer free, I put 16 pounds back on. I have no regrets over the gain, however I refuse to regain any more. It is one of the gifts being ill gave me and I am NOT going to waste it! I have lost what I gained and am working on losing even more!

I have such a wonderfully strong support group as I wended my way through my journey with cancer! I know I would not have done as well had I not had that loving support of my family and friends. Their positive attitudes along with mine are what saved me!

I look forward to meeting new friends here!

Love, Light, and laughter,
