Hi! I'm sort of new... I've joined and abandoned Spark a few times now. This is my third attempt :)

I'm a mom of 3, wife of a chef (yikes!) and I have a job that requires that I sit on my butt for several hours a day. (I'm a bookkeeper)

I just started Zumba in my living room and my county has just completed a BEAUTIFUL walking track RIGHT next to my house. (Around a lake- bonus!)

Considering replacing breakfast with Visalus, don't really know anyone that uses it besides one girl who is GORGEOUS but she is a Visalus rep... still on the fence.

Anyway, HELLO!

Hello :) !

I am super excited to be new here. I joined Spark yesterday, and couldn't be happier to have found it. I am a mom of 3 and live in Springfield, OH. I have a weight loss goal of 129 pounds.... I know that is going to be a long road, but I've always been up for a challenge. I hope to meet lots of great people and develop some great friendships here on Spark. Can't wait to start seeing results !

hi FWC~ my name is stephanie,I live in the Northeast Pennsylvania,winter is on its way but that no excuse, ready to make a change and achieve the body I know I'm capable of having..I never lost the "baby weight" after my 3rd child--she's 10 yrs old now. My goals are to cut my portions in half, make exercise a habit, lose 50 lbs before November 2012 when I hit the big 40! I'm 5'8, so most people don't believe that I'm 200 lbs. I can't wait to hear "are you losing weight"...not "are you expecting"...
Have a great weekend, I'm off for 4 days so I getting a jump start on relaxing with the family & friends.. emoticon emoticon Happy Halloween emoticon emoticon

I'm a 21 year old mom and wife. Got married a little over 2 weeks ago.
I put on all this weight AFTER my daughter was born in 2008. I'm ready to get back into shape. I want to be who I used to be. An active, outgoing person. Hard to believe I was a runner. But I am working towards being all that again.
I need to lose 65lbs to be in a healthly BMI range.
I would like to lose a min. of 5lbs before my hospital appointment the first week of December.
I want to reach my goal weight before I turn 23 (Nov. 2012)
I look forward to chatting with the other members. :)

Hi Ladies! My name is Angie and I just joined the FWC today. I've been on Spark since 2009ish, but never did anything with it, and just re-joined at the end of July. I'm 36 and have been married to an incredible man for 13 years. I have two kids (6 and 8) and we live just outside of Tucson AZ. As part of re-joining, I am trying to get to know people here so that I have relationships and accountability.

I hope to hear from some of you! Have a great day!

Jer 29:11 - For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Thanks... and welcome to the newcomers (though I still feel like a newcomer).
So far, so good. Just knowing I need to be accountable to someone is helping. I've set my goal of hitting the gym 3 times per week: this is attainable... and I actually made it 4 times, plus a walk with a friend.

If anyone has some basic challenge ideas I'm game.

emoticon Yes indeed emoticon The twenty 24th will be my 1yr anniversary & within 7mo I gained 30pds & my husband I think around 50pds but he will not let me see the scale.

He asked me to stop cooking so much but he hasn't. He is a VERY good cook!. He also likes junk food & I do not do well with temptation.

Let's get together & see if we can come up with a plan/tips.

Hope to chat soon Kissyfacechik but for now I gotta get to bed.
God Bless

I have been on this team for quite awhile, but I have not been active on Spark. I will introduce myself again.

My name is Jodi. I live in western PA. I have been married for , well will be 5 years next month.

I have a small hobby farm with nigerian dwarf dairy goats, chickens, and a few ducks. Plus a few dogs.

I have never been what I call a healthy weight. My mother passed away from cancer when I was 9 years old and i basically raised my younger sister. My dad didn't re marry until I was in college.

I feel bad because after my husband and I started dating he gained over 100 pounds. He says I cook very well.

I have a hard time changing my eating habits because when I make heathy food my husband still wants what we ate before. I end up making 2 meals and it's very hard sticking to my calories this way. Does anyone else go through this??

Kissy (Jodi)

Welcome FELKINS,

We are happy you have joined us! I believe things happen in numbers/support. Congrats on the marriage, I'll be celebrating one year on mine the 24th of Sept. Goal is to be as thin as when we met. I've kinda been a yoyo lately so it's time to get on track!! Sounds like you are on your way, please do not hesitate to contact me or any of the team. We want to do this together.

My name is April, and I got married on August 5, 2011. I joined SparkPeople in July and have gone from 161 pounds to 153.4 pounds so far. My goal is to get the scale down to 145 pounds and then start really focusing more on toning than the numbers.

I have a degree in Food Science with a minor in Agri Business. I currently work as a legal assistant and am thinking about going to law school in 2012, but haven't fully decided yet.

I'm really hoping this is an active group, because I keep joining groups and then deleting them when no one seems to post anything at all for two weeks! I need active people to help me stay motivated. I know that for a fact.

I live in Little Rock, Arkansas and am the team leader for the Little Rock Sparkers.

Also, I'm going to do the Pimp your (P)ride challenge that starts on 9/6, if anyone wants to do it with me!

Love the wedding photo Runningstrong

I know just what you mean, my one year anniversary is the 24th of this month. I gained 30pds in 7mo. My husband hasn't been shy about telling me he likes thin women, me the way I was when we met.

Least you are gonna start sooner. I think you'll love SparkPeople, I do. All the tools needed to keep on track are here at our disposal & for free!! I know I certainly can't ask for more.

Please let me know if you have any questions or want to chat.

Congrats on your marriage. emoticon

Hi ladies,
I'm a 33-yr-old newlywed of less than 1 month. I live in central NY, teach 6th grade remedial reading in a suburban school and my husband works in athletic communications for a major university. We work long hours & once the college sporting season starts (this week actually) a night together at home is a treasured gift.

Since we met just over 2 years ago we've each put on 20 lbs, traded in our weekly workout routine for television time & begun eating large under the excuse that it's "our date for this week." Bad habits... especially since we're trying to conceive a baby by the end of the fall.

With the school year starting I'm realizing that (1) I can't wear my gym shorts with their super stretchy waist to work, (2) my daily routine will include ice cream & tv more than 4 nights per week while the hubs is working late, and (3) I'd be uncomfortable gaining any pregnancy weight in my current state... so...

I'm here to put forth a concerted effort to lose some pounds/inches, resume a workout routine, and solidify healthier habits so I'm not feeling bad for myself when "my 1st Christmas as a newlywed" rolls around.

Life is very interesting... in the end, some of your greatest pains, become your greatest strengths.

LOL ... sorry I tend to be super shy :) I'am Michelle and I have two wonderful kids a boy and girl. I live in NB Canada and found sparkpeople a few weeks ago I like how organized it is and how supportive everyone seems to be :) I probably won't post a whole whole bunch because of how shy I am lol. But if I can be of help to anyone or can help with anything just let me know :)

Hi~

I'm a 27 year old wife who has been married for almost a year, though has been with her husband for almost 7 years. My husband and I are the exact opposites when it comes to weight and height. I'm very overweight for a person who is 4'11 and he's very underweight for a person who is 6'2. I'm looking to get back down to the weight that I was before I met him. I've had this weight for almost 8 years and I'm sick of it. I really, really am. I wish I had worked at it harder to not have let it get to this point and especially not to this time. What's happened, happened, though. I can't change the past. All I can do is change the future by my actions right now and the future me is gonna be thin and sexy.

Hi everyone! I'm a 30 yr old newly-wed looking to shed the weight that I have been gaining since I moved to Tucson three years ago. It's been a battle for me because I had two partial discectomies from my lower back last September and then was in a car accident in February. I'm really excited to get back into shape and keeping up a healthy lifestyle.

Hi there,

I'm 26, from Texas, and I'm married and a stay at home mom. I came here looking for support--it has been an uphill battle with my weight. I'm a picky eater as well so I've been struggling with my diet. I hope to come here to achieve my goals and become better than I am. I look forward getting to know all of you!

Hi!
I just started on SP earlier this week. I have been married for a year now, and between that and settling into a new job, I managed to put on about 30 pounds this year--which I am NOT proud of. I struggled over the course of the year with various fad diets, but always fell off the wagon after feeling too deprived. It's nothing new...I've struggled with my weight most of my life, but I want to spend the last years of my 20s feeling hot instead of gross. So here I am!

I'm glad there are so many here who understand my struggles, and I hope we can support each other to our goals :)

Hi everyone my name is Pat. I just look over some of the other introductions and feel like the old folk being 47 and married for 28 years but I like what I see in this team so I thought I would tag along if you will have me. I have two wonderful daughters 23 & 17 and a great husband who is a saint for having put up with me for 28 years. I have been overweight most of my life but started this journey at my highest weight ever and am so thrilled to finally be back on track. I have a real sense that I will go all the way this time because I'm making this about being healthy not just loosing weight. Anywho, hello to all and although I'm not on the site a whole bunch I will stop by and check in now and again. emoticon

Hi everyone! My name is Kristen, I am 23, married for three weeks, have a one and a half year old son and am trying to find time in my day to get some exercise!! I'm not here to look hot in a bikini (though that would always be nice) I am here to be healthy. I have been overweight for too long and need to drop some pounds. I don't care how fast or how slow as long as they go!
I am really looking forward to meeting people on this journey and having a great time while doing it!

I've been married now for 5 months... and emoticon - so, i'm married and still fat. i need some motivation, inspiration, help, a buddy, somebody to help me be accountable to/for myself and my weightLoss goaLs. i'm T2D, i take ActosMet XR once/day, i'm 50#'s overweight. each time i get a leg up, i buy ice cream. good news is the IC has been in my freezer for months now, and i do take bites of it, but i no longer just PIG out on it. i've been trying to do Low CaLorie, eating mostly fruits and garden veggies - i don't really like the taste of meat anymore, altho i have an occasional homemade taco or hamburger. i'd like to go Vegetarian and more of a Raw food'er than not. i don't like Casseroles or big creamy meals. i do like Sour Cream on my potatoes. I love potatoes. i don't like to put lots of seasoning on my foods, i just like the food the way it is out of the garden, sometimes I cook things - i don't really eat a lot, but sometimes that can be bad for me too. i usually do some LesLie Sansone walk tapes and very rarely i will ride my bike. I suffer from anxiety of new places, and depression (off & on) kind of seasonal like allergies. emoticon

i am hoping to be down to 175 by the end of this month. i got myself down to 177 around the end of June, but then I stalled. today i'm suffering from a horrible headache. i've drink tea, so its not a caffiene headache and i've taken my diabetes med so thats not it. i do feel like my back needs to pop, so my neck will crack - it feels like pressure in my neck. i guess that's enuf for now...

Hi, my name is Heather. I am 28 and have been happily married for almost 10 years (in Dec). My husband and I have 3 awesome kids ages 7, 3, and almost 2. I have had 3 c sections and have accumulated this yucky belly that I have been trying to get rid of off and on for years. I want to regain my self confidence and lose this 18 lbs of baby weight that I have put on. I want to feel and be sexy for my husband again. Since I am also a Mary Kay consultant, I want to be able to shop for cute business clothes without wanting to cry in the dressing room. I want to be a good example to my kids. I have flaked on all my previous weight loss attempts and I want to put an end to it once and for all and be triumphant. Hope to find the encouragement I need here. Blessings!!

I'm new to spark people but I'm loving it so far and how it really keeps me motivated to reach my goals! I'm 29 years old and looking to celebrate my 30th in the lean and healthy body I used to know and love! I'm more driven to really do it this time more than I have been in the past but I could always use some extra support from fellow Spark People out there. I got quite a goal to reach- 90 lbs. 26 down so far, so I'm on my way...

Hello! My name is Angie, and I'm 28 years old. My husband and I have been married for 2 years (3 in November), and have a beautiful 4-month old baby girl. I've been on SP on and off for a few years, but I'm more determined than ever to meet my goals - I want to be a good example to my daughter of healthy living. I also want to be able to play and chase her around as she gets older.

Rewards:

10 - new nailpoish or CD
20 - new sneakers for working out
30 - earrings
40 - purse
50 - shoes

Will review and establish new goals for the last 50 :-)

Hi! My name is Crystal. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 5 years next month. We have a beautiful 15 month old baby girl who is the most precious thing I have ever seen.

I would like to lose about 75 pounds and get my body into a healthy and fit condition so that I feel better about my appearance and so that I have more energy to keep up with my marathon running husband and my energetic toddler. I do not want to turn into one of those wives and moms who miss out and do not participate in the fun because of my weight, and I can see that if I don't do something now I am headed down that path.

I am currently working the Slim4Life program (on day 8) and am so excited to already see results, small ones, but results none the less. I lost a little bit before starting the program, and now I'm very close to reaching a weight that I have not seen in about 4 years. I think that will be a very big day for me!! Sort of like breaking through this physical and mental wall that has been haunting me.

I wish everyone success in their journey!!

Let's do this!!

Hey Everyone - my name is Barb - 34 years old, mom of a 6 and 3 year old, married for 9 years and a 3rd grade teacher. In 2010, my resolution was two fold - get my weight under control and run a 1/2 marathon. So, I joined weight watchers and by June I dropped 30 pounds. I completed the Chicago 1/2 marathon in September. At the end of October, my world was rocked - my dad (my best friend) had been diagnosed with cancer "of an unknown origin". 2 days after my 34th birthday, my dad died. This shattered my world. The diagnosis of cancer sent me into a tail spin of emotional eating. I would pick up the cookies, look my husband square in the face and say "I'm emotionally eating, leave me alone." On top of that, my sister is a wonderful baker - so she would emotionally bake, and I would emotionally eat her food! So, in one year, I have put 20 pounds back on and I'm really struggling with getting it off again. I ran another half marathon in May this year, hoping this would recapture some of my "glory" and push me back where I need to go. I bought all new summer clothes last year and now I don't fit in them, and I got rid of all my fat clothes because I was never going back there again. Oops. So, I'm really trying hard and want to reclaim my "girlish" figure that I had a year ago. I had wonderful curves that I was very proud of, and I'm going to get back there again!
