Hello I just turned 19 a few weeks ago. Got a slap in the face from my doctor so here I am. Hopefully this will work because nothing else has. I'm a full time college student, I consider that my job at this point. I'm pursuing a degree in education with a masters in special education. Mostly I act my age, however I compete like a child :) that's me!

Hello. My name is Bobbi. I am a 54 mother of 4, grandmother of 1 most adorable granddaughter. I live in Milliken, Colorado and work full-time. I am 5'7" and weigh 253 pounds. I have tried a lot of diet plans and even have had lap-band surgery 3 years ago. Nothing helps, but I don't want to give up because I want to be strong, healthy and mobile so I can keep up with my children and grandchildren and travel with my husband and be able to see the sites and get to and from without being out of breath. I want to lose at least 100 pounds. I enjoy my family, knitting, crochet, reading and travel.

The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure. ~1Corinthians 10:13 [NLT]

Hi Everyone!

I decided to join this group to give me that little extra push in the exercise dept. I currently am rotating my strength training and cardio, but it doesn't hurt to do an extra 5 minutes of a little something. It makes me feel that not only am I meeting my goal, but exceeding it.

I just joined this team in order to push myself every day to do some sort of exercise. I am looking for a team that is active and will actually post. Get tired of signing up and never having anyone talk or respond to anything. What good is that kind of support? I mean, to me that is like this is just a journal. Don't need a team page just for my own journal. Wanted support instead.

Good morning. I've finally decided to challenge myself to join a team. I've been hesitant, because my life is sooooo jam packed right now, but I've noticed that my focus on weight loss has been slipping lately ... so here I am. :o)

My name is Susan. I am 38 yo. Military wife, mother of 3. I recently went back to college. I'm working on getting a massage therapy license.

I believe that as a massage therapist, I should set an example for my clients. They deserve a healthy, happy therapist. :o)

I'm new here and I can't wait to see what challenges are here for me.

Just for today I will try to live through this day only and not tackle my whole life problem all at once. I can do something for 12 hours that would appall me if I felt I had to keep it up for a lifetime.

Hello all, I joined this team because I am hoping these small daily challenges will help keep me motivated and "in check" with my goal to be healthier and loose body mass.

I look forward to meeting everyone!

I've posted this in 2 other spots in this community!!! I am REALLY trying to reach out to this group, because I would LOVE to start a motivational thread and see who would like to join in! I see a lot of dissappointed members, and I would love to get it MOVING for you and for me!!
And this is EXACTLY the group of people I have been looking for!!! I can not get ANYONE motivated on some of the teams I have joined. AND I HAVE BEEN TRYING!!!
I hope maybe there are some other creative minds here that will pitch in and maybe get a MOTIVATIONAL team started. I use to be a team leader for over 2 years at another diet site and am a graphic artist. We use to have a group that did weekly and monthly and goal oriented motivational objections based on a reward system. It worked GREAT! But I need a semi devoted team. We did mini journals, complete with struggles, daily motivation, I would crown a "Queen" or "King" of the week using your Avatar (you could post if you want) for whoever did the best. I also would do a magazine cover for anyone who met their "goal weight" on the ticker. I would even mail a copy for them to frame, just have them pay the shipping, or I would just email it to them for free and they could print it off (alot of people just didn't get very good results) but I do it all for you for free, just for motivating me too!! If anyone is interested, there is more info on my spark page, and we can get a team going here asap and LET's DO THIS TOGETHER!! I sure need some help!!

Hello all! I'm Patty from suburban Detroit and I am new to the team. I've got 7 pounds down, but five stubborn pounds to go! I'm looking forward to the 5 minute challenges!

God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

OK, I give up. Where are the Daily 5 minute challenges? All I get is notifications of new members and one message from a lady named Chris who also joined and she doesn't know where the challenges are either and has quit the team. She said she emailed a leader but got no response. Does anyone have a clue how this team operates? I just want to lose a few pounds, nothing radical.

Hiya everyone!

I'm Nicola, from England, and this team looks like a great idea :-)

I'm struggling at the moment as I can't do workouts or even stretching for a while due to medical issues, but I'm trying to just keep myself ticking over until I can again!
