Hi!

I am restarting my weight loss effort again. I've tried multiple times before and I'm hoping this time, I will see it through. I hate the feeling that nothing in my closet fits and I hate going out to shop for new clothes. Everything about my weight and body size and shape depresses me and I really want to do something about that.

Thanks for listening!

Hello, I am a new mom to twin girls. I am currently 190 pounds and would love to weigh 150. I am married and work full time as a career advisor at a university. I am desperately seeking inner peace and would love to work towards a healthy life- physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and financially.

I hope to be able to find support and accountability because at this stage I cannot do it on my own.

Thanks!

I am just starting to realize the power I hold in my hands-the power that allows me to decide if today will be a great or horrible day for me. I am tired of letting others have that power over me. Today is the day I take that power back.

Hi there!! My name is Rebecca, I am 39yo and live in Western Massachusetts. I am really excited to have found this team and look forward to having an accountability partner. I am just returned to Spark after a year away and am re-losing about 35lbs to get back to where I was. I am disabled, and at home, with a Traumatic Brain Injury but there's no stopping me!! My mobility is not perfect, but I can do a 5k if you ask me to! Might need to re train, but I can do it!

Hi, I am Kim and I found out about SP a number of months ago, but up until recently have not contributed much, just a lurker I guess. Everyone has helped me though so a big thanks to all of you who put yourselves out there. I have always had weight problems, but this year (2/11/13) started seriously making changes, I found a nutritionist, learned all the stuff about the "right" kinds of foods, which I had in the past thought I already knew. I got a fitbit and started walking and exercising, which I found out I actually enjoy, I used to think "who enjoys walking and exercising? They are not being truthful." Well, I am down 98 pounds but I still have more than 100 more to lose. I learned that I need to take help wherever it is offered and so I am thankful for the invitation to join this team and am looking forward to getting to know all of you.
A little about me. I am 52, married 26 years with no children. I live in South Jersey, which is where I grew up. My husband and I like to travel and find "the perfect beach". I am the youngest of 7 children so while I don't have kids of my own, I have dozens of nieces and nephews whom I love. In the last 7 years I have lost both of my parents and a sister who was my very best friend in the world, it hurts but I know that they are not far from me ever.
Anyway, enough about me, thanks everyone!
How do I get one of those Goal Graphics that everyone has?

Dream as though you were to live forever. Live as though you were to die tomorrow.

Hi everyone! My name's Sammie, I'm 23, and I live in Mississippi. I joined SparkPeople in August, and it took a while, but I've finally decided it's time to buckle down and change my life for the better. :) I lost a little weight on my own before joining, but I still have another 55 pounds to go.

It's a long journey, but I know I can do it--especially with the help of an accountability partner! :)

Hello everybody. My name is Becky and I was invited by Mia-Morsel to join this team. I have been active on SP since August of 2012 the same time I retired from my job. I am now 56 and have lost 35 pounds but have recently gained 10 pounds back. And I do not plan on gaining anymore. I am excited to be active on this team and to get back to losing weight.

I am an empty nester with all the kinds of time to reach my goals.

Hi all. I appreciate the invite to this team. :o)
My name is Ashley and I am a single mom of 3 (1 child has special needs). For many years now I've only focused on them and their health, but now that I've lost my job I suddenly have time to think about myself again.
It's good to be here and I look forward to connecting with you. :o)

Hi I'm Ange, 21 years old, and I'm happy to be joining this team. I only joined Sparkpeople a few months ago, so this is the first team I'm joining. I've been overweight all of my life and have finally gotten tired of it. I've still got a ways to go, but I'm happy with the progress so far. I live in Japan, and am a Junior in university. I believe that God led me here to start a new phase of life!

Time4Dee,
I am positive you can do this, and you deserve to take care of yourself. I know as a single mom, your job as breadwinner and caregiver come first and we have it backwards, because if we don't take care of our selves, then we are unable to take care of others. We must take care of our own health first and foremost....trust me, I didn't follow this and almost died, who would that have left to raise my children....thankfully, God stepped in and took over, and now I am working on me first. Hang in there, you can do it! I look forward to getting to know you better, as well.

HI! I'm Dee and I appreciate the invite to join this team! emoticon

I'm 55, married and have 2 grown children and 4 grandkids. I work in a hospital at a desk job everyday but I've managed to fit in exercising throughout the day. I spent almost 9 years in a big truck before hubby became disabled due to health problems. I'm the sole breadwinner and I feel overwhelmed with stress at times. I need to focus on my health to stay healthy and reduce stress. I have uncontrolled high BP I am determined to get under control by diet and exercise. Meds only as a last resort.

:ooling forward to getting to know my teammmates and be accountable.

Hello, Thank you for the invite, I am Janet. I am 45 and I have 2 amazing boys. I have been on the yo-yo plan since my 19 yr. old was born. After some eye openers given to me by God, I finally got a big swift kick in the pants a little over a year ago and 'got the picture". I had lost quite a bit of weight, but I still was not taking things seriously. So a long story short I have now lost 109 lbs. in the last 2 1/2 years. I still need to lose from 45-60 lbs. to get to my healthy weight. I tend to quit at the last minute (I think in fear of success) and that is why I found SP, to keep me going to finish to the end, and to help others along the way. I look forward to creating new friends, and the time I am sure I will spend with all of you will be great.

Hi I'm Sue and have been riding the weight roller coaster all my life. I am 49 and will turn 50 in July. It is my goal to be at a healthy weight by that time. My Dr said that 150 would be fine even though I only stand 5'3". Looking for someone I can rant with and support as well as have their support when things run a muck. My passion is horses, I just can't get enough.

Thanks for the invite. I'm Beth I'm 49, I live in Pa, am a grandma to 4 + one on the way. I have over a hundred pounds to lose, I want to be around to see my grandbabies grow up. I've been using the WII for the last 6 days and the scale is finally moving in the right direction. I'm a master crochet and a knitter, and teach both out of my home.

Hi everyone. My name is Amber and I'm 23. I just graduated with my bachelors degree in May and I plan on starting my masters degree in the next year. I have been overweight since childhood and have lost weight several times before, only to gain it back little by little. My greatest success was losing 80 pounds when I was 16 but I gained it back all back plus some in college. I have lost 40 pounds by using SP and I plan on losing about 90 more.

I live with my boyfriend and our ferret, Lola. He does most of the cooking since I am not strong in that area, but that can provide some challenges. I cant wait to meet some other members through the team. Ive been active on SP for quite a while but I've been hesitant to post and interact with my teams. I think that is an important aspect that I have been missing!

Hi all! I'm Joy and I'm a married mother of two children. I balance my time between homeschooling my kids and working towards my Bachelor's degree, and in the meantime, I have like zero motivation to get fit. I really want to though, so hopefully I can find a partner who will shame me into actually sticking to my workout routine :)

Best luck to everyone here!

Jen, Ricky is 9 years old. We got him when he was 3. We have two other dachshunds: Abigail, 11, is black and tanned long-haired and Nutter Butter (aka Peanut), 2, tanned. Abigail is quite the couch potato and Peanut gets into everything. Peanut is a rescue from a New England rescue place. She is such a sweetheart and for some time had trust issues. Abigail, when we first got her 6 years ago (she came with Ricky), didn't go to the bathroom for a week until Ricky showed up. I swear, she didn't. She stayed under a bench we had in the front hall. It was cute but nerve-racking. LOL!!! I love these guys!!!!

Hey, I'm Jen.
I am 35 years old and live in Missouri. I just joined Sparkpeople about 5 days ago and I am really excited to be here! I have already lost 42 lbs three years ago and have maintained at 185 for three years. I have about 50 more pounds to lose, and I plan to do that this year.

My strategy is baby steps. I have my eating down cold---and can eat within my calorie range and incorporate veggies and fruits with no problem. I am currently working on developing a fitness routine. (I always start gung-ho, walking three miles a day, doing a high intensity workout video, lifting weights...and then I get really sore and fail.) This time I am starting with the recommended 10 minutes a day. My husband and I were doing couch25k last year and I would like to continue running/jogging.

A little bit about me- I love to knit, listen to podcasts, and read romance. I have two dogs-- a pug/poodle mix and a mini piebald dachshund. I also have a guinea pig. I have been married for 11 years, no kids. I live in Missouri.

Thank you for taking the time to read this!

Hi Everyone!

My name is Cat. I just turned 35 at the end of Oct. But my big wake up call came to me earlier in the month when I lost a close friend to complications of diabetes, congestive heart failure, and being too heavy. (Her body could not let her breathe on her own because of her weight.) I don't want this to be me in 30 years.

I have Type 1 diabetes (poorly controlled), many other medical conditions that would take forever to list (also mostly poorly controlled), and I have extremely bad knees and back (but can wear braces on my knees and can usually push through the back pain).

I need to lose 100+ pounds. My plan is to lose weight in small increments (about 25 to 30 pounds) at a time. I would love to have a partner to push me and keep me motivated. My only real sources of exercises are a treadmill and walking around my condo complex.

Please SparkMail me or Friend Request me if interested. Would love to make friends and lose this weight!!!

Hello to all you beautiful people,

I'm Joanna and I'm turning 21 in february. I'm an Economics student from Greece.
I have 75 pounds to lose but that's fine cause I've been doing this since forever. I'm here because I want this to be THE LAST TIME I'M WORRYING ABOUT MY WEIGHT. It's not about the weight anymore, it's about finding normal, getting there and never look back. I'd love to find some good friends here with whom we'll frequently communicate through each other's blogs and stuff, keeping an eye on each other. I'd love to help you with your goals because helping people makes me feel useful and at peace with my much troubled self.
So don't be shy... :) Visit my sparkpage and if you think we can do it together add me without a second thought! :)

I'm doing a 21 days no binge streak. FOR ME, it's been TREMENDOUSLY helpful to be accountable to other people and to compete against myself. Please join us if you think it'll work for you too: www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_mes

Hi! I'm Delana, I'm 33 years old and I have an almost 16 month old daughter. I've struggled with my weight for most of my life, mainly because I get lazy and I have a terrible lifestyle. I ate whatever I wanted and never put 100% into exercise. I use to play roller derby and I'd like to get back into that someday. I'd also like to participate in the Dirty Girl Run 2014, I was too worried about being out of shape this year.
My main goal is to be healthy for my daughter. I want her to have good eating habits and want to exercise/be healthy.

Anything with the power to make you laugh over thirty years later is not a waste of time :-)

Hi, My name is Lisa and I'm 40 years old. I've struggled with my weight since my early 20's and I'm really motivated at the moment. Started doing the couch to 5k jogging programme this week - 1st time in my life I've tried running and I'm really enjoying it! Taking it day by day as I know how easy it is for me to lose that motivation and interest. Thanks for the invite to the group emoticon .

Hello I am 37 and have struggled with being a healthy weight for the last few years. I have always been into sports and was fit fr the better part of my younger years but find that that the older I get the harder it is to keep it off!! My first goal is to lose 30lbs and then after that we will see how I feel!!

Hello. Im Chrys. 34 as of two days ago. I am trying to lose at least 200 pounds to be healthier and to take weight of the leg that was broken back in may. Have a titanium rod now, but the rod can only do so much. I suffer from fibromyalgia and bi-polar and a few random other things. I am on nutrisystem but it doesn't work well when you eat all the deserts before the month is up. Anyway thanks for the invite, hope to see you all around more.

Hi, my name is Kelly, I am 37 years old and I have been struggling with my weight my entire life. I have about 100 pounds to lose. I have Chiari, which is a genetic disease/condition in where my brain is too large for my skull and I have had 3 brain surgeries in the past 7 years. With the surgeries, I have not been able to exercise they way that I needed in order to lose weight. I still have days that I am physically down, not able to do much other than sit on the couch and try to get rid of the pain. I found Sparkpeople to be very helpful in the past. I am hoping to find a partner that will help to keep me accountable and help to keep me motivated so we can lose the weight and help each other get healthy.

Hello I'm Blane. I'm 30 years old and I have about 40 pounds to lose. I'm here because I have problems eating in my calorie range and I'm hoping to find a partner that will hold me accountable for the foods I eat.

Hi, my name is Tonya. I will be 40 in about a month and have around 80 pounds to lose. I love the idea of having a partnership with someone to stay motivated and being able to help each other. I have rheumatoid arthritis but I'm trying to do the best that I can despite it. I'm also a quilter and love reading.

Hi everyone! I am 28 and from MN and have been working to lose the rest of my baby weight (about 30 lbs) for over a year now. Not having that much luck. I used to belong to WW and miss the camaraderie of having people to talk to and hold me accountable for my actions! I have lost 40+ lbs before, but don't have the same tools (gym, time) as I did back then! I am signed up to run a 10k in January to help with motivation! Looking for others going through the same thing as me!

Hi Everyone,
WV girl here. I have lost over 100 lbs. 4 times in my life only to regain it plus more. A friend told me about this site and I know this time I can do it and keep it off. The 4 previous times I tried to go it alone, but Spark people made me realize that I needed support from other people who have the same struggles I have or they have had them and over came them. Thanks in advance for giving me that support.

How others see you isn't important, but how you see yourself is everything.

emoticon Hi everyone, I am in Kentucky and happy to have already seen snow this year. I do love the cooler weather. Outdoor exercise is so much more fun. I am really bad to procrastinate so, I thought that this group would be perfect. I need all of the help I can get. I hope to be able to help someone else along the way. Let's Get Healthy Together !!

One day at a time !!!
