Hello Angels!

My name is Janel. I call myself the big bright star because I want to follow Jesus. Like the wise men. They followed the star to him. They were loyal and diligent in their journey to find him and so I would love to be diligent in mine. I am 43 and I will be married in June for 25 years !!! Time flies when you are having fun. Being in love can do that :) We have 4 grown sons -16,20,21 and 23.My 21yrold is severely autistic. No grand kids. I live in Utah and I grew up in a Christian home. Thank you God for a faithful mother. I work in a hematology/oncology clinic in the administrative office at my local Veterans hospital. Oh yes! I forgot tell you all my husband and I served in the air force. We met at a dance. Some would say that working in a clinic with cancer patients is very sad. I would say that this is not true. There is so much love in my clinic and faith. The families and patients come to our clinic surrounded by love, prayers and people who are of faith. They have a whole staff of people who pray for them daily. They are never alone in their struggles. God is always there. I have learned on my journey that the angry people the ones who walk in by themselves for treatment. We love on them more - whether or not they want to receive it. Sometimes sitting in the chemo room with them. Not saying any words at all and letting them speak is one of the sweetest times for me. I do not have a God complex . I hope you all do not think that at all. I pray that I have a servant's mentality. There is no person on this earth that is not beautiful and wanted in the eyes of God. Have you introduced anyone to our Lord lately? It can be awkward sometimes but it may be just the thing that they NEED to hear.

Anyway, I cannot wait to meet you all. I have some really neat angel stories. I have experienced too many miracles to ever doubt that they are not walking along with us. :)

Hi, I joined Sparkpeople in March 2012 and have yo-yo'd my way down 10 lbs. I'm impatient as I would have liked to have lost 30 by now, but my trainer friend says this is more likely to stay off since it's a slow loss. I collect angels and send them (the real ones) with my sons whenever they are away from me. My younger son just narrowly missed a car accident last week so I know they are on their toes!

I am lesarning about new teams and challenges all the time...love the support here.

I believe I have a 'Parking Angel' named Matthew., He has been with me for about 2 years and he did reveal himself to me with a whisper of his name. I know no other Matthew! He always gives me a parking space right up close at the grocery store...I am blessed!

Hi everybody ~ I'm Kathy from Brown Co., IN. I'm 60, a grandma of 2 beautiful grandsons, mother of 2 grown boys, 29 & 28 respectively. I'm from the other Angel group and am still in the process of learning about how the SP site works. I've lost 20# so far and joined SP on 12/26/11. I'm having fun losing the weight and getting healthy again. Still have 30# to lose, but I'll get there. I've been married 35 yrs. and have a wonderful old dog, Oz who is my walking buddy. I drive a school bus for Brown Co. Schools, so don't have much time to post on the boards, but try to do a little bit each day. Glad to be here and hope to get to know you!

Hello everyone!
I too like Lainie and Diana am from the "other" angels team.
My name is Kelly and I have lived in Colorado for most of my life. Most of my time has been spent in Denver which is where I've resided over the last 16 years. I work fulltime, squeeze in "my time", and have a loving husband and 2 daughters, one is just getting through her first year in high school and one in the 2nd. grade.
I've been with SP since June of 2011 and have been fairly successful until I "fell" into maintenance mode unexpectedly (a.k.a. a brick wall!) I hope to be able to flow though the team and get to meet people and make new friends!

Have a fantastic weekend and wishing everyone the best!

Kelly emoticon

Hello everyone,
Like Lainie, I'm from the "other" angels team.
My name is Diana and I live on the south side of Indianapolis. Grew up about 50 miles away on a farm. I just turned 54, single and own my own home. I am a petparent of 2 cats, Snickers and Sparky (yes, named after the website-thanks to Kitt). I work full time as a Laboratory Compliance Analyst (medical technology and computer technology degrees). At this time of year, I also work part time doing taxes at the green block ad place. We have been busy, so don't get online much right now.

I had a knee replacement a year ago August, and then back surgery in August 2011. I am still rehabilitating from the back surgery. I currently use a walker, but working to get rid of it now that the back has been fixed. Unfortunately, I am fighting some swelling issues and my weight is at an all-time high right now. I have high blood pressure and am a melanoma survivor.

Can't think of anything else but to say hi and hope to meet everyone fairly soon! Diana

Hello Everyone!

I just joined this evening from the other angel's team. I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone.

I was born and raised in Michigan, but I've lived the last 30 years in Georgia and love it here. I've been divorced for over 20 years. I have 1 son, who is 21 years old and a Junior at Georgia Southern University. I work from home so I was able to move 60 miles to where my son goes to college. He's a graphic design artist. I'm very proud of him. It's been a struggle over the years, but we've made it through.

I've been with Spark for over 5 years now. I've had my ups and downs along the way. At one time, I had lost about 100 lbs. I let the stress of life get in the way and I gained almost all of it back. I never gave up though and continued on my journey. I went for a long time losing and gaining the same couple of pounds. I started back to really focusing over the last couple of years. I did great for 6 months and then I hit a plateau. Did great for another 6 months and hit another plateau. For the past 6 months, I have been doing great. I have finally got on the right track with exercise and I think this time it's really going to help keep away the long plateaus. My highest weight was around 400 lbs, if not more. I have lost 75 lbs and kept it off. I have set backs from time to time, but I won't it let me stop on this healthy lifestyle journey I'm on.

I was diagnosed with diabetes a few weeks before I joined Spark People. I'm currently on Metformin. I also have high blood pressure and fluid retention issues. My goal is to lose this weight and get off my medicine. I hate taking medicine.

Hi, I am Chris. I have just retired teaching. We have one grown daughter. I am caregiver for my DH. We have a cat, Cujo, to keep us entertained.

Evening eating to get comfort and relax is my buggaboo!

I have to be diligent about caring for myself. 100 DAYS OF WEIGHT LOSS is a great way for me to keep focused. Day 1 is July 1, 2017. Build habits to produce success. Most of these habits I have at least tried before but did not sustain. First habit: delay eating by using a timer.

HI everyone! I'm Angel. This is my nickname that I've used for the last 20 yrs. It started when I was a baby and my mom nicknamed me her little Angel. Then as a grownup I used Angel as part of my screenname on AOL for years (back when they charged $3.00 per hour and we used 2400 baud phone line.) I have used it as an in person nickname for many years and for the last few I've used it as my professional name. It turns out I'm also very metaphysically oriented and totally believe in angels as helpful spirits including guardian angels.

I'm 43 yrs old and the mom of an almost 5 yr old son. I've lost almost 20 lbs since the summer. When I was here in 2006, I lost 60 lbs in 6 months before I got pregnant. I was 300 lbs at my heaviest. Currently 255.

Struggling with emotional and late night eating, binging, and lack of planning. Also having trouble getting enough exercise in the winter. But, I'm determined to get healthier! I'm a Unitarian Universalist, Pagan, and New Age as well.

Blessings!



Merry Meet!

~Angel

You are worth having a healthy body!

This is a lifestyle change to be healthy, not a diet and not a sprint to get there.. one day at a time, one pound at a time.. as long as it takes, starting again as often as possible.

Hi, I'm Anita from MI. I'm a little behind in introducing myself so wanted to jump in quickly. I was happy to see some familiar names (from other groups) and I hope everyone is doing well. I took a bit of a hiatus from SP (and weight loss and healthy behaviors unfortunately) for awhile but I'm back and doing well.

I know this is a hectic time of year for everyone, me included so I may not be too active until the middle of next year, but I've read all the emails and I am really happy to part of this lovely group!

Hi all I am Nimma from Fort Smith, AR and I use to be on the team and left it for some dumb reason. Sorry it took me so long to find my way back.

Can anyone tell me what happened to Whispering Pine?

I hope to reconnect with all of you now that I am back. This was such a supportive team when I lost my bunny Gracie back in Feb. I am so glad to be back emoticon

Hi everyone I am from South Wales, UK.

I found SP by chance a few weeks ago and haven't really started eating healthier yet. I am planning to start this Monday as I really need to lose about 3 stone. This site looks brilliant and I am encouraged by the support.

Hope to get to know you all over the coming months.

Thought this looked like a nice fun team to join. HI my name is Val, I started my weight loss journey In April 2011. I found myself loosing motivation. So I decided Its time to get involved in the spark community.I hope I can make some friends and we can help to motivate each other. For exercise I enjoy bike riding, walking, zumba, and Wii fit.

Hi Spark Angels,
My name is Debbie and I live near Milwaukee, WI. I am looking for a fun active supportive team to keep up my motivation. I just joined the YMCA for some group cardio classes and take a Zumba class at work. I am truly encouraged by all my Spark Buddies and want to help encourage others to stay focused and healthy.

WOW So many new members in just the few chats I have read in the last few minutes.
This is an awesome team for support and encouragement and caring.
KRYS is amazing and I have been AWOL for awhile many issues going on right now and she took the time to say Hi and to see if I was OK. She remembers so many names and chats I am in AAAWWW of her at all times.
I think I forgot to say WELCOME to all the new members and just started.
I am going to try to stop by and say Hi more regularly but my plate is pretty full right now and I really miss sparking and all my spark friends on this team. Just know I may not be on here but I am thinking of you. Take care. Teri

STAY POSITIVE AND SMILE. DON'T BE DISCOURAGED WHEN YOU HAVE A BAD DAY. THEY CAN ONLY GET BETTER.

Hi everyone! My name is Juli. I'm from western NC.

I've lost 180 pounds. About 100 more to go! Working hard to get off the last of this weight...and thought this group would be a great place for support and motivation. :)

I look forward to getting to know everyone here!

Hey guys! I'm an EFL teacher outside the US and I'm trying to work off some culture shock weight. It's been an adventure finding new ways to work out and learning to cook healthy food with different things than I'm used to, but I like adventures. I also like positive people, and there seem to be a lot on this team. It looks like lots of encouragement happens here and I'm excited to be a part of it!

Thanks....it is good to be here. I walk 2 to 3 miles every day, but need to start adding some strength training to it. I have a couple of workouts for my Wii that I need to start back. It's just been a crazy summer, but that's no excuse. Suggestions are always welcome!

Thanks also to those who visited my page and left comments. I can tell this is going to be a great team!

Hi, my name is Faye. I have been a member of SP since June 23 and found this team through the email from the SP Class of June 19-25 team. I liked the name, and when I came and checked this team out, I liked the team itself even more.

I would like to lose a few pounds, but am mostly concerned with getting stronger and healthier. I am tracking everything, and I believe it will all work together, although my weight just fluctuates within about a five-pound range no matter what I eat or don't eat. I can tell that I am making overall progress though.

Thanks for having me on the team. It looks like a great place for encouragement and support, and I will try to provide that to the team as well.

My name is Pat and I've been a member of SparkPeople for a month (tomorrow 13th). I was extremely overweight from 3 years old (when I can remember) until I grew taller in 7th grade. This was the first time I was ever slender. Through the years I've lost and gained weight numerous times. I'm a yo-yo-er. Currently, I'm at my goal weight and hopefully with SP I'll be able to maintain my weight loss for the first time. At my all time heaviest I weighed 250 lbs.

I decided to add another team for support. After doing a search, "Angels Amongst Us" looked like an active team with plenty going on. I look forward to being here.

Welcome Pam! Sounds like you know you need to set your priorities! We are here to support and encourage you. You might want to try the nutrition tracker - when you have to log in the food you eat, it seems to make most people pretty cautious what and how much they put in their mouth.

Hi, my name is Pam. I joined Sparkpeople about a week ago. I plan on following the steps and making small changes. So far I have gotten in my 8 glasses of water a day, which is a big accomplishment for me. This has helped me cut down my soda and coffee (Mocha) intake.

My biggest problem is night eating. I have a hard time not eating at night, even if I ate well and enough during the day. Also, I have a hard time not eating the junk food my family brings into the house. Sticking to or even making a plan is hard for me too.

I also get discouraged quickly when I don't see results, but I'm trying to fight this.

I'm very hopeful that this will finally be my answer to getting healthy.

A thankful heart is a happy heart.

I can do anything and so can you!

Welcome Kristine! We share a similar name except mine has a 'y' instead of the 'i' since I am of Polish heritage. I have to be honest and say I had to look up what Reiki practitioner does and it sounds awesome! So glad you joined our team! Let me know if I can be of any help on your journey towards your goal!

Welcome Kiah. Don't get discouraged if the weight doesn't come off quickly. If you stick with healthy choices, it will come off.

Hi!
My name is Desiree and I live in Santa Rosa, California. I just moved here and this is my first attempt to ever lose a large amount of weight and I am ready for this lifestyle change.

I am 27 and live with my small 10 lb dog and my boyfriend. I get a lot of support and my friends and family are amazing too.

I am going to junior college and heading off to a university in a year or so and I want to be a healthy weight before I am 30!

I am excited to meet new friends!
Desiree

Thank-you to KRYS210 and LIMMIMM (I think I missed or added another 'M') for a warm welcome.

KRYS210 - Thank-you for pointing me towards the Nutrition Tracker. It is so awesome. I can see what I have been eating and the amount of nutrition (or not) I am getting from the food I consume. :)
