Hi everyone, my name is Kelley and I live on the south shore. It's my second day on SP and I think I'm starting to feel the spark. I had my little boy a couple years ago and I just haven't made time to take care of myself at all! Everyone on here is so supportive, I know I'm going to reach my goals!

hello everyone. I'm Angela and I'm from a fairly small town, lived here almost my whole life. I'm 36 and the mother of 2 daughters. This is my first day on SP and I love it. It makes tracking my meals and workouts so easy and seems easy to use. My goals are to lose 18 pounds, tone up and get healthy. Once i get started on a workout I do great for about a month but as soon as something interrupts my routine I lose motivation. I'm really trying to not let that happen this time. This time it's about me!!!! I CAN and WILL do this!!!!! emoticon

Hi. I am Sandy. I live in the Lowell area.
Today is my first day on Spark.I have a FT job and go to school PT. I will be 50 in a few short months and just want to be fit and healthy. I have a lot to lose and the number is intimidating. I also want to quit smoking. I like being outdoors. I hate to sweat.
I am not very competitive so I prefer swimming, ice-skating, walking, kayaking. I have a really hard time with motivation!

Hi everyone emoticon , my name is Elaine and this is my second day on SP. I like this site a lot! My goal is to be down to 200 lbs (I'm at 256 give or take right now) by my husbands birthday in March. I live in Ware - in Western Mass (for those from the east that haven't heard of it). This is the first time I truly feel motivated to lose weight and get in shape in a very long time.

Hi, everyone! I'm Paula on the South Shore of MA. I have struggled with my weight for quite some time and recently recommitted to weight watchers and regular exercise. It's so easy to get off track one day and just let it go. I plan to push myself to keep going by committing to big goals. Last spring my husband and I did the Bike MS Ride the Vineyard Ride and we're doing another ride a week from today in Hingham. I just got a brand new Trek bike and have ridden the past 5 days in a row. YAY! Looking forward to some "buddies" to push me and to helping those of you who want it! emoticon

Hi- I am new to SP and still learning to navigate the site as I have a very slooowww connection. I'm a 48 year old single mom of a college student from the South Shore. I am trying to quit smoking and lose 15 lbs. Hopefully, this will give me the inspiration I need. Anyone successfully quit and lose at the same time?

Hi Everyone, My name is Maggie and I've been living in Leominster for the last 14 years, but grew up in Needham. Love Leominster the out in the country feel of the town. I am brand new to Spark and I'm hoping to fine the help I need to lose the weight and get healthy again. It's always nice to know there are others in the same boat near by.

Hi everyone! My name is Shanna and I got married about 6 weeks ago. I did well on SP before, but with the excitement and stress of the wedding, I fell off the wagon. I am seriously trying to get fit before we try to have a baby. :) Looking forward to Sparking again!

Hey guys,

My name is Beth, I'm 29 and live in Waltham with my husband. My weight wasn't really a problem until last year, when in the span of 4 months, my dad died, I got married, went on an amazing foodie's-dream honeymoon and suffered a back injury which kept me from doing pretty much anything.

So now, I'm about 25 pounds heavier than I'd like to be. I'm 5'3'' with a small frame and being close to 150 is just putting unneeded stress on my back.

My husband started last year at 275 pounds (he's 6'5''), found out he had high cholesterol and is now weighing in at 223. So he's been incredible motivation. Being able to go to the gym together has been so much fun (now that I CAN go to the gym since my back is finally getting better).

Anyway, just wanted to pop in and say hi emoticon

Hello all! I am a 27 year old mother of one. I admit, since getting pregnant I have totally let myself go.
I was chubby before I got pregnant (150 lbs) I gained 100 lbs while pregnant and continues gaining afterwards.
This weight has ruined my life! its pretty much ruined my marriage as well.

I have 100 reasons to lose this weight. my daughter being number one. it breaks my heart because I cant push myself hard enough to walk her for more then a few blocks. I cant take her to the park for more then an hour without turning bright red and being all sweaty. She outruns me!

I have also noticed she is starting to pick up and my eating habits and has put on some weight these last few months.

I look forward to chatting with most of you and I look forward to losing all the weight I gained!!

Hi, I'm Cindy from Taunton, used to live in Dracut and Woburn... many years ago. This is my second day here and I am loving it. It is a little overwhelming, I agree, so much to do, so many places to visit... taking it one day at a time. Getting myself motivated to get out and walk is my main challenge. I love it, I love to exercise, but there is this disconnect in my brain... LOL!... and I need to get plugged back in!

Hello Hello!!
My name is Riley and I live in Missoula, MT with my boyfriend and my son. I know, I know... MT is not the same thing as MA.. I swear I'm not lost!
My boyfriend's father live in Northbourough, and when we are finished with our custody battle, we plan to move to Boston! Woohoo! (A few years off still... but I want to make some Sparkfriends there!)
Hope everyone is having a fantastic week! The month of June has been great to me! Looking forward to July!!

Hi I am coming around again after some time away. I live in Franklin, MA and am interested to see if anyone in my area would like to be a walking buddy or just check in daily? I have been walking sporadically but will be walking 30 mins. 3x week and building on my time/distance each week. I like to walk early am (7-8:30) to beat the heat. Mimi

Hi Cindy...I'm Donna from Pepperell (work in Lexington). I'm trying to figure out this site and all the groups and message boards. A little overwhelming right now. Any good message boards or anything you can recommend? I'd love to be able to go to a place to chat with others. I'm 30 days into an at home fitness DVD, but really need to get my eating in order!

Hi, I'm Cindy from Melrose. I've lurked around this site off and on for 2 years. I'm ready to make a commitment to lose the weight in a healthy way that I can call a lifestyle. I know that I need a lot of accountability and support. My daughter says I will find it here. 2 days down and I'm feeling pretty good.

Hi, my name is Sandria. I am 29 years old, I am married to a wonderful husband and have a great 6 year old. I live in Hudson. I have been on Sparkpeople for almost a year. Haven't quite lost anything yet but have made good changes in my life. Have fallen off the horse a couple times. I absolutely love sparkpeople and all the tools. I know that I can do this. I am taking the time now to introduce myself and hopefully do this right and stay on track and stay motivated this time. Hope everybody is having a great week.

Welcome to SparkPeople! SP has so much to offer to help you work on your goals and to stay motivated. Getting your grandson involved in meal planning and preparation can help you teach him about healthy eating as well. Getting outside with him can be beneficial for both of you. Good luck!
