Hi all! My name's Amanda and I like to eat...it's sadly as simple as that. After I quit smoking 2 years ago I gained around 40 pounds. Jeesh. I'm a single 33 year old woman who just wants to be healthy. One of my goals is to post at least once a day to keep myself honest. Good luck to all of us.

Hello! I have been working on myself for a few years off and on, just trying to feel better really, rather than truly get to a number on a scale. But numbers can be good goals to have, too! My ultimate goal is to lose 10-12 pants sizes and to not come home from work with aching legs and feet because I'm so heavy. I've tried dieting, I think I have a pretty good idea of what I should and shouldn't be eating, and I am here to make a commitment to myself and all of you on my team. I am going to track what I eat, I am going to make healthier choices for what I eat, and I am going to exercise daily, even if it's just a brisk ten minute walk to a friend's house. This is Michigan in the winter, so sometimes that walk will be pretty cold, but I want to commit to getting it done! Thanks for being there to keep me in line! Good luck to all of us in 2011, and here's hoping it's a stellar year for us "thirtysomethings" emoticon

Hello everyone, my name is Sandy. I live in small town in Southern Illinois. My husband and I have been together for 10 yrs. Our daughter is 3 yrs. My husband is from Micronesia (over by Guam), and was raised in a culture a little different than ours. So his support tactics suck, although he is trying (when I remind him that I need his support). I have always been heavy and I have all the worst habits there are. I'm trying to change all of those so I can live a healthy lifestyle. I hate being twice as big as my husband. I want him to take our daughter back home to Micronesia so she can meet her family from there and understand where her Daddy comes from. But most of all I want to be there with them, which means a 2 day flight. The cheapest tickets cost anywhere from $1500-$2000. So that means we can't afford 2 seats for me. Besides I want to enjoy my first flight. I just don't see me going over there at this weight but I see myself going over there. Time to make our dreams realities for all of us. Let's go team!!!!!



~Sandy~

Hi, my name is Liza, I have been occasionally trying to lose weight, but I am serious about it this year. I am putting in all that I have and exercising and eating healthier and doing what I can to be healthy in 2011! I decided to lose big and try for over 100 lbs total, which will put me at a normal weight. I'm feeling so inspired just by browsing the site.

Hi there! I'm Sara and I was part of the 20-somethings with 100+ pounds to lose, and I just realized that I no longer fit in that category. I've been 30 for a few months, but it's just now sinking in!

I've been with spark for several years but haven't truly stuck with it. I just started a challenge with some friends to lose a percentage of weight by June 1. If I don't do it I have to pay them each $250! Needless to say, I'm here, I'm sparking and I'm not paying them a dime!

Sara

determination (de·ter·mi·na·tion) : noun : the act of coming to a decision or of fixing or settling a purpose; the quality of being resolute

Hi all, I'm Aubrey and I just started HMR this week. Already down 6 pounds! I know it's mostly water weight, but it's still great motivation. Only 133 pounds left to go! ;-)

I'm a wife and a mother to two little boys and if I don't lose my excess weight in the next 2 years, chances are I'll need a liver transplant. So my primary motivation is just making sure I'm here for my boys in the future!

Happy New Year to all! My name is Marla and I am a 35 yr old married mother of 2 (14 and 11.) This is my second attempt at Sparkpeople...and my LAST attempt. The first time around I did wonderful, lost weight felt great and I think I got a little too confident because somewhere I went back down the hill and now I'm ready to climb again. Here I go....

Hello ladies. My name is Tracy and I am a proud mom to 4 beautiful girls - 14,11,8, and 3. I work full time, am taking college courses, and am a Girl Scout leader. I kept telling myself that I was going to get the baby fat off before my 30th birthday but I've added to it. I am at 240 and would like to get healthy. I set my long term goal to -1oolbs. I look forward to reading your post and staying in contact with all of you so that we can all motivate each other.

Hello my new Spark family. My name is Jameelah and I am 33. I am new to all of this and I am excited and nervous at the same time. I currently weigh 370 lbs. This is the highest I have ever weighed in my life, although I have been heavy since birth (you might as well say). I have never been in a slim body. I want to be healthier and slimmer so bad yet I am afraid of having something I have never had. Not sure if it makes sense but it's how I feel. I don't want to fail at this, seems I have been failing for far too long. I have some health issues and you would think they would have been my motivator to lose weight sooner but that hasn't been the case. My attempt at losing this time just seems different. In all my years of being heavy I have never been as uncomfortable within my skin as I have been feeling these last few months. My health has also declined to me having more painful days then ever, so maybe that is the reason, whatever the case I am just fed up with how I feel and how I look. I am married and I have 3 kids. We are all over weight. I feel guilty everyday when I see my kids breathing hard and having leg pains from carrying the excess weight. I feel like I have failed them. So in 2011 I want to change my whole family into living a healthier life. I want to live long and see my kids grow up as well as someday see my own grandkids. I don't want my kids to have any of the health issues that I or their father have, and I see they are well on their way to that if I don't make a change. Thank you for being here to lean on as I start my journey. In Christ I love you all and I pray we all reach our goals and shine in 2011.

Hello everyone. Happy new year to you all. I am 33 years old and I have over 100 pounds to lose. I am currently going to school and live in a very full house. I am broke and am planning to start a gym membership on the 10th of January. I am very excited about this. I have tried many times to lose weight and I have failed. I think, no I know this time I will do it. I want to live. I want to be healthy. Heck, I want to be able to fit into the desks at school. I live in Kansas and I would like to thank you all for letting me join you as we begin our journeys.

On Christmas, someone asked me if I was turning 40 next year. I'm not, but it got me to thinking.... Did I really want to turn 40 the way I am? Don't think so. It's not too late. I have one more year befor I turn the BIG 40 and I would like to go in style, not a tent. So here we go 2011! It is going to be a long hard road... I know this and I CAN do this. And if I can do this, so can you!
What ever happens - make it fun!

My name is Lori and I am hoping for a new start again! I need to get healthy and hoping I stick with this so that can happen. As a child I was always pretty skinny but I am a stress eater and have other issues that I have used food to deal with.

I am looking for support to help me. I realize something like this I cant do myself. I am on Facebook if anyone wants to be friends too- just send me a private message and I will give you my full name.

You all are inspiring! We can do this!!

My name is Rudo, and I have reached my final limit, I started gaining weight after I turned 25, and I broke into the 200s after I got married. 2 kids later i am at a whopping 283. I never knew I could carry so much weight. I am about to turn 35, and I figured it is time to stop this runaway weight train that I am on. So here goes.......

Hi I'm 31, student, mommy to a 7 yr old.

This isn't an I'm gonna lose weight resolution reason that I'm here; rather, a promise to myself I made this past Sept and so far so good.
I did make a resolution this year to go on a hot air balloon ride when Oct comes around. To be honest, I don't want to have to tell them my current weight when the ride comes around even if I just make it to 240 that sounds so much better than 267 YIKES!

When it becomes more difficult to suffer than change - then you will change.

Hi there.. I think I am doing this right.....
I am 37, married for 13 years, and mom of an 8 year old girl. I have always been "big boned" I am almost 6 feet tall, and broad shouldered. BUT... It is not my bones that is keeping me from fitting in my jeans, or getting pregnant. I do have PCOS, but the weight is the main factor. Being I was only 14 when my husband and I met, I do not want to look like THAT again, but if nothing else, I would like to look the way he THINKS I do! And 1/1/11 seems like a good time to "reset".

Hello all, new here, but ready to go. I have always been overweight, and never really cared what other people thought about me or what I looked like. That has recently changed. I have a 3 year old little girl who is becoming my little chunky monkey. I do not want her too be obese like I am, nor do I want her made fun of because she has a "huge" momma. I want to change. I am tired of being to tired to play with her outside. And I am tired of always be TIRED. I want to change.. I need to change. I wish the best of luck to us all.

Hello everyone. I'm new to sparkpeople but very impressed so far. I will keep this short and to the point. I have let myself go for far too long. I'm ashamed about how much weight I've gained. But its time to get my life back. Thanks and look forward to getting to know everyone.

Hi! My name is Gina. I am 35 and live with my fiance and his 10 year old step-daughter whom I regard as my own daughter. Her mother passed away when she was only 5 years old. At my last doctor visit I weighed 320 but have put on at least 10 more lbs over the holidays. I just don't have a scale at home that will weigh all of me.

I'm new to SparkPeople and I'm going to do this! This is not a New Year's resolution. I never stick to those. I need to lose weight for my health. I watched my father slowly kill himself with obesity and diabetes and it kills me that my fiance watches me doing the same thing day after day. I want my step-daughter to be proud of me and not have her little friends make comments about her 'fat mom'. I want to live my life and be happy and love myself and be the sexy woman I know I can be for the love of my life. He loves me just as I am but I know I will love myself more once I take control of this addiction and our relationship will be even stronger. He proposed on July 4th, 2010 but I won't even discuss a wedding date yet because I don't want to weigh 300+ pounds in my wedding photos that will be around forever.

Hello, my name is Vanessa. I'm from Pennsylvania. I am a SAHM to 3 boys ages 8, 3 and 11 months. Their dad and I just got married in October! I didn't even have a wedding because I couldn't bring myself to look at dresses.

I now weigh 264 lbs. The largest I've ever weighed not pregnant. I was 300 last January on the day I gave birth to my youngest. Down to 250 in the summer but over the last few months I've gained back 14.

I joined Spark before and was overwhelmed. I'm hoping this time to make an effort to figure everything out and stick with it.

Hello everyone!

Like most people here I am so sick and tired of being sick and tired of being overweight. Bleh. So it is not a fad, or a trick, or some magic pill for me -- just one day at a time with a plan. And I'm sticking to it damnit!

I want to wake up and feel good about myself, like I know I'm going somewhere...

Oh yeah, my name is Cindy. I'm not married and I have no kids, pets, or plants. One of those things has to change this year....maybe a goldfish or something.

I work and work and work....and that is also going to change this year. I want to find a middle ground, a truce with working myself to death.

I'm excited to start a new year and also grateful to have found this site. Let's get to it!!

I took my first step today and I started taking vitamins. They've been sitting in my pantry getting dusty for at least 6 months. Go me!

So here's a great New Year for everyone!!

Hi Everyone,

My name is Krista. I have been married for 20 years and have a 7 year old daughter in the 1st grade. We live in Northern Nevada, just miles from Lake Tahoe. So we get our fair share of cold weather and snow.

I want to ski again and there is no way I will tell someone how much I weight to get fitted for ski's. On top of my weight problem, my daughter is following in my foot steps. I don't want her to have to deal with all the mean things kids say.

My husband is well over 6 feet 6 inches and never gains any weight. So he wants to eat everything and I just can't have everything in our house anymore. lol

I hope to make some new friends and help each other reach some goals.

Happy new Year and new beginings to us all
Krista :)

My name is Angie, I am 32 and a mother to 3, two teenage daughters and a 3 yr old son. I currently weigh 294 which is the biggest I have ever been. My unhealthy habits have took their toll on my daughters now and it is time to change and get this weight off and start taking care of myself and teach my daughters to do the same. My oldest daughter is 14 and weighs 350, So we decided to make this change together as she wants to look good and feel better before her 16th birthday which is February, 27, 2012. So in a little more than a year she is wanting to lose 200 lbs and I want to lose 150- 160! I hope to meet some new friends on here as I have no support around me, and I will need to be her support, and I really need to find some motivating people that can believe in us!!

Hi, I am Cheri. I am starting SparkPeople again...sadly about 30 pounds heavier than the first time I started and forgot about it. Looking forward to sticking to it this time. Since the first time I joined it, I have had the addition of my 18 month old son to my family, we own our first house together, and really have nothing to complain about. I want to be fit and healthy, which includes thin not only for myself, but for my son who will have to introduce me to his friends when he starts going to school, and my husband, who deserves to be with someone who is more like the woman he married five years ago, and met over ten years ago. Thank you in advance for all of the support I know that you will be to me. Let's all reach our goals together!

Hi, I just joined SparkPeople today, and not sure what to expect just yet. Over the last ten years I have been gradually expanding in size until I reached where I am today. I kept blaming it on anything BUT myself. So now I'm going to try something new. Specifically, this site. Here's hoping it will help. I am originally from Manitoba, Canada and moved to Ontario, Canada a year and a half ago. All of my family and quite a few friends are still in Manitoba, but I have made some good friends here.

Hi, I'm Christina. Trying this again, only this time I am going to make it! I have about 150 lbs to lose, but for now, I will settle for the 20 that will get me back to 250 - which I "swore" would be the absolute highest weight I would allow myself to be. Then I can plan for a new mini goal. About me personally - not much to tell. I am a single mom to an amazing son who is 8 and has horrible eating habits as well - I need to change ME to set a good example for HIM. I like poker, play 14 musical instruments and am addicted to Facebook :)

Smile at somebody today. It will make you feel better.

Hi everybody. My name is Chrissy and I have PCOS (PCOD). Iam due to turn 40 in a few months. I guess I am a repeat offender, I have started with sparkpeople a few times over the last year or two. And although I love the site I have let myself get sidetracked each time. It seems the older I get the more trouble I have with my weight and many other health issues related to the PCOS. Two years ago I reached my alltime high of 367. One years ago I was exstatic to have reached 300. I just couldnt believe that I was almost under 300 for the first time in I dont even know how long. Then in the past year I have gone back to 350!!!! So here I am again. lol I feel like i should just write deja vu next to my post. Oh well. i have started back to seriously watching myself this week and have done well. Havent stepped on the scale again yet but I feel good. Back on my meds for the PCOS and hoping to start exercising this weekend, just set up a new treadmill and eliptical in the garage. Glad to be back and wishh everyone continued success for the new year.

Chrissy

Hi my name is Kandi, I am 39 yrs old and have 3 children. My husband and I have been married for 20 yrs. I decided it is time to do something about my weight when my oldest daughter got engaged four days ago. This made me realize I haven't wore my wedding ring in two years because it doesn't fit. I was diagnosed with cancer 10 months ago and have gained 50 pounds since they removed my thyroid. I'm hoping that by tracking everything and holding myself accountable I can drop the weight and get healthy. emoticon

Hi. My name is Trish and I'm 29 years old. My birthday is coming up soon, which is why I joined this group instead of the 20 Somethings because in the blink of an eye, my 20's are going to be gone forever; and I'm also going to do my best to get rid of this weight forever too!
