Hello everyone,
My name is Julie. I've been with Sparkpeople since 2007. Been through a lot in that time period. Figured it's about time to try out a different team again. Something that makes more sense than what has been offered that don't apply to me.

Hope to get to know you all. I've known Momma48 for awhile now. emoticon

Hi I'm Lauren. Lost 45 lbs last year and have been maintaining since then. Finally got help for my high anxiety levels and started medication- Which caused me to gain back 10+lbs. Trying to balance my anxiety and stress and lose the weight again. I tend towards starvation and binges so I really stress myself trying to do this in a healthy way.

Hi. I'm Lily. I've struggled with depression for a long time. I've come a long way but it's still a struggle. Weight has been an issue in my life even longer. I also struggle with an eating disorder. I need to lose a considerable amount of weight but right now I'm concentrating on learning and taking small steps. Big steps tend to trigger me at this time. I'm choosing to be okay with this. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Luann here. I will be 64 this month and have struggled with depression off and on for years. Have successfully lost 182 pounds through bypass surgery, exercise and nutrition. Am frustrated now because no matter how much I exercise, watch my intake and record everything, it aeems every 10th of a pound is a real struggle. I am getting tired and I do not want to give in, but the bad habits keep tempting me.

I'm new here. I'm 58, married with 2 fur babies-1 dog and 1 cat. I want to go back to leading a full active life. I've lost too much of it to illness. I need to lose 100 lbs that snuck on me when I wasn't looking. How I didn't notice is another story. It's time to reorder my life, hopefully with the help of some new friends.

I want to take time out to wish everyone, Good Luck in reaching your goals. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I have a lot to lose and want to start. I'm involved with a couple of different programs for starters. I have gone up recently and certainly don't want to gain any more. I really need to work at losing weight and get my emotions in order. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi I'm Karen and I just joined the team. I have a few issues I'm dealing with, and this seemed like a good team where I can meet people and give/receive support. I'm 54 today, and live alone with my dog and my cat in IN. I have 2 grown daughters and 2 beautiful grandsons. Just wanted to say a quick hello and introduce myself a little. Karen

Patty, Sorry you lost your brother. I lost my brother too, many years ago, and he was only 37. I still miss him.

I am new here, I just started and thought this would be a nice team to join, I like the topics and I think this will take away some of the stress and anxiety, that I have. I am 66 yrs. old, but young of heart. I still enjoy music, search word puzzles and old movies. I live in Ohio. and I hope I can bring some smiles to everyone, who is struggling with emotional pain, stress, depression etc. God bless us all on our journey to success.

Hello everyone! I'm abby, and I'm 23 years old. And I feel stressed all the time, I'm very emotional, and almost every night, I breakdown and cry. But I haven't opened up this with the people I know. I just keep this all to myself. And it's actually very tiring to fake a smile everyday. Hope being here could help me even a little. Thank you/

I was surprised to find a group like this. I am in a depression and my life has been very difficult to say the least. I've taken time off from work to see a counselor as I feel I have failed myself and those around me. Does this ever get better? I lost interest in my home and my pets. I decided for their best interest to give them up so I can get better and that they will have a better life, too. I am hoping to find myself again.

You can't wait for motivation to strike; sometimes you need to dig deep into yourself and find the motivation on your own.

Hi! I just wanted do say a quick intro - I'm 52, happily married, no children or pets, like walking, gardening, listening to music, reading and cooking, and am a born again Christian. I live in England and have been in a gloom for about 6 months I think. It's time to do something about it. I'll be looking over the spark depression teams I joined today and other websites, and walking more, as I feel sure that if I went to the doctor he would prescribe more exercise. Looking forward to getting to know you!

Hello! I've been on SP for years, having been successful but have gained over 20 pounds in the last 3 years. Only recently have I realized how much my anxiety fuels emotional roller coasters fueling the binge monster. I've lost motivation but am working on getting it back, which means focusing on dealing with emotions & anxiety. So glad to have found this group, I'm looking forward to learning more and offering support where needed!

Everything we do in life is a choice...I can't blame others for my thoughts or actions.

My name is Latisha and I live in the Detroit, MI area. I lost my mom in December and it still seems like just yesterday. With Mother's Day soon approaching, I am struggling with all kinds of feelings/thoughts. I just came across this team and thought it would be a great way to stay encouraged and as well as encourage others who may be going through similar situations. Life has a way of keeping us in check. My daily prayer is to become stronger and to get the comfort that is needed to move forward.

Hello everyone! My name is Brynn. I am joining SparkPeople because I stepped on the scale a week ago and hit 200. I made a vow to myself to lose the weight. I think following the goals in this program will help me establish some sense of control in my life again and help with my anxiety and depression. I have been suffering with both since getting diagnosed with multiple sclerosis three years ago and my weight has sky-rocketed since then. I struggle with the fear of not knowing what the future will bring and being completely out of control of my life. I was a nurse for five years before succumbing to the disease. I am lucky enough find work full-time in medical billing for the time being. The left side of my body is weak, which effects how I walk and use my hand. Exercise can be a challenge when something as simple as a one mile walk can be out of the question for me. I just turned 30 and the rate that my disease is progressing terrifies me.

Hi team, Debbie here. Just joined and looking for advice and encouragement. Hopefully I can be of help to someone else as well. Life is hard, sometimes a little harder than others. This seems to be one of those times for me. Depression has crept back into my life and I'm having a little trouble pushing it aside.

Today is the first day of the rest of my life.

In 2004, I felt God telling me He would restore me. I was so sick. Fibromyalgia. Since then been dx bipolar, arthritis, anxiety. Have had PTSD forever it seems due to sexual trauma.

Stress you say? My name is Joy and most days I wonder what Joy means. I even started a blog last year called Being Restored to Joy. Got discouraged because I received no comments that I stopped.

I'm married with one son. Being bipolar and sick adds to the stress. Now to take charge of health. Learning about which foods trigger symptoms. Exercise when anxious. Need to not be OCD on tracking and move.

Love digital scrapbooking. Michigan home. From New Mexico. Exercise :circuit machines at physical therapy, incumbent bike there, treadmill at home. Going to try yoga on Roku today

Hi, I am back again and new to his forum. I have a Generalized Anxiety Disorder and recently it has been affecting my mental health a lot. I also had recent blood tests done and it was determined I am pre-diabetic, so it is even more important that I get it right this time around. I am famous for starting something and not sticking with it, I attribute this to undiagnosed ADHD. Many of the things I am going through I do not have anyone to talk to due to the nature of these stressors. I made a huge mistake, and it seems so hard to move past this mistake and forgive myself. In turn my actions have hurt family members, so I am doing my best to earn their trust back. This week I had my intake in the psychiatrist department through my insurance, I will be looking into meds once again and this time I will be including therapy into the plan. On the outside I seem like a normal person, I teach special education and I love it, but inside I am always dealing with something. I would love to connect with others who have the same challenges that I do.

Hi, I'm Ruby--just joined. I am 53, mother of 2, daughter 26, son 22 who is high functioning autistic. I have about 80 lb to lose. My husband walked out to be with his girlfriend after 27 years of marriage 3 years ago. He left and has nothing to do with his children. Maybe 3 times a year. I am still in a lot of pain regarding this loss. It is hard to focus on losing weight with the distraction of my sadness. It is hard to see 27 years of memories all around me. He stated my weight as one of the reasons he left, which leaves me not feeling too good about myself. It is difficult to see the tomorrows when there are so many yesterdays still in the forefront of my mind.

Today is the tomorrow we worried about yesterday

Hello there. I'm Talia and I've had some bad habits i'm trying to work on, and can count on a migraine at least once a month lately. This hasn't started happening til about 6 months ago, before that I hadn't had my first migraine til early 2014, when i started hitting tough deadlines on my master's thesis. they and my acid reflux hit around the same time.

I'm trying to find a new job, one where i can actually use my new degree and i'm trying to get over my social anxiety. I'm generally sociable with total strangers but freeze at the possibility of being more than a "60-minute friend." I'm not that great at making friends and networking is going to be interesting for me when i get better. I also want to get over it so i can be ready to start dating on my own schedule (got a pushy crush that's making my anxiety worse at the moment--too bad we work together).

But i want more self awareness and the ability to be calmer and not get all spastic when i'm stressed (and of course reduce stress). Can't wait to help and be helped when needed. have a great one.

My name is Tanya. I have been on a roller coaster of weight gain and loss all of my life. I am just starting back. It's like i woke up again and found myself fat. Years in denial and depression brought me right back here. It upsets me that i will have to fight hard for a whole year just to get to the point that i don't feel like a blob. Then keep fighting forever - to lose the rest and then maintain a healthy weight. I do know that once the good habits start to replace the old ones it will feel like less of a fight but the time it takes to reset my eating and other unhealthy habits is just so overwhelming...

Hi, there,

Happy to have found this team. Struggling with ptsd after a physical attack, and I originally found Spark as exercise has really helped me cope. I like sharing the good days, and supporting others, and getting support, on the bad ones.

Hello everyone, I'm new to site + team. Joined team primarily because I have always sorta struggled with depression, then one year ago, my daughter died. I've come a bit out of the extreme grief, and I do try my best to live in the present & be a happy, upbeat person, but I still have my bad days. Would like to make some friends. I have a large amount of weight to lose, and a goal-date four years away, so I will be here for the long haul.


All people dream, but not equally.
Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their mind, wake in the
morning to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous
people, For they dream their dreams with open eyes, And make them come
true.
-D.H. Lawrence
