Hi Everyone, I am Pam Greene 42 yrs old mother of 3 grandmother of 3 work full time and go to college full time. I started working out in Oct. and I did ok during the Thanksgiving holiday with loosing 3lbs better then gaining. The Christmas and News has not been as good. The cedar is in the air and has hit me hard. Hopefully the bootcamp is going to help me hit the exercise and diet hard and reach my goal of 6lbs by the end of Jan. Good luck to everyone!

Hi Everyone, I have been a SP member for almost a year. I need to lose 50 pounds but I want to do it right. I usually become a work out addict and then burn out. This time I want to find a routine that fits with my life. I am looking forward to being accountable to the whole team.
Good Luck to everyone. emoticon

Whether you think you can or can't, you're right!!

Hi there!! My name is Fyre and I'm new to SP, but have heard excellent things about the site and am really committed to not only reaching my weight loss goals but also starting to eat healthier and getting in better shape! I look forward to having you all as team mates. Any advice some of you more seasoned Sparkers have for a newbie would be greatly appreciated.

Hi. My name is Jacquie. I'm new to Spark. Over the summer while I was unemployed, I was really good about going to the gym regularly, but since I started a full-time job I can't seem to muster the energy or find the time to exercise. Plus I work in an office where I spend most of the day sitting on my butt. I'm hoping that I can get motivated again and lose about 30 lbs (which I've put on over the last 6 years) in time for my wedding in October 2010.

Hi everyone -- I'm Karen, and I've been working on my weight/fitness since July, and on SparkPeople since the beginning of August. Results have been slow, but steady, and I was thinking that joining the Boot Camp program might re-energize my efforts. Looking forward to the new challenge.

Hi. My name is Susan. I live in Australia and I need to exercise for strength, flexibility and weight loss.

I have never stuck to an exercise program before. I just bought a stability ball for the challenge. I hope this time things will be different....

Hi there! :) My name is Michelle...I'll be turning 38 years old next week...I'm a mother of 3 (ages 20, 8 and 4)...I work full-time outside the home and recently move to a new building for work, making me gym-less. Prior to the move, I worked out every day during lunch and since moving last month I have gained back 20 of the 26 pounds I had lost between July and November. I desperately need to get back on track!! I'm hoping this challenge will help me do just that!

Hi Everyone!

I'm Terri, a 50 year old. I need this so badly. I am tired of waking up tired, not able to move and I'm tired of not being able to have the energy I need to get through my day and keep up with my grandaughter. I have been lazy about loosing the weight and getting healthy again. Christmas morning my daughter got engage and I do want to look better and weigh less when we head to Tennessee for the wedding.

I am so looking forward to this boot camp and making new friends along the way.

Best of luck to each and every one of us.

GO TEAM!

Nice to meet all of you - such a large group emoticon . Sure hope we can maintain that personal contact and support that has maintained and made Spark what it is today!!

I have yet to complete a boot camp - so I am looking for support buddies here. I faithfully walk at least an hour everyday and lead the SparkPeople's Official Virtual Walk/Run Challenge. As we all know - to keep motivated - we need to keep everything fresh and exciting, so here I am.

Hi! My name is Melissa. I'm a 32 year old happily married mother of 3 children ages 12, 10, and 8. I have done a couple of the Bootcamps before and enjoyed them but I never seem to stick them out. I've been trying to lose weight for the past 13 years and all I end up doing is gaining. I don't want to be fat anymore! I really want to conquer my emotional eating and form an exercise habit. Good luck to everyone!!

Weight gain doesn't happen overnight.
Neither does weight loss.

Hi! I'm turning 30 in April, having family pictures taken this Spring, and in one year my husband and I will be renewing our vows and having a larger ceremony. I have two beautiful girls I want to be able to keep up with and teach a healthy active lifestyle. I want to have the energy that I used to. So many reasons to lose weight, and I've not managed to do it!!! I'm ready to get focused and hopefully this challenge will help me do so!

My name is Lucia Yeo and I have been using SP for 2 years now. A friend told me about this site after I was home recovering from surgery (cervical cancer related). This was in 2008 and many other medical issues followed for the year. I was in the best shape ever, but had to take many months off and SP helped me maintain my food intake and showed me many workouts to get back into shape. I have been a runner for many years but procrastinated to join a race. I entered a 5k race summer of 2009 and then was down again due to a hernia surgery. Since then I have tried to get back, but when I saw this bootcamp challenge I was happy to join and try something I have never done before. Before I was diagnosed with cancer I weighed 152 lbs. After my surgery I lost an immediate 22 lbs and continued to lose. I have since maintained my weight but fear that my weight could get back up. this is why a new challenge will be good for me and with lots of support.
