Hi there everyone! This is Diane -- newbie to this group but not a newbie to SP. I lost 40 pounds using SP a few years ago. I got down to 195. Then I lost myself and suddenly realized that I was at 240. Soon I will turn 50 years old and I am SO TIRED of being the fat girl. I am almost always the fattest lady in the room and I am tired of feeling "blah" and hating all of my clothes. I have been back on SP for a few months and have managed to lose 6 pounds. I have a loooong way to go so I am looking for support and encouragement!

80 Pounds to lose - 7 down; 63 to go!

Hi, my name is Brenda, and I was actually recommended to this team awhile back. I joined, but then disappeared for awhile. I'm back and ready to lose this weight. I live in Carmel, Indiana, but getting ready to move at the end of the month, but have no clue where just yet (still looking). So, a lot of stress right now. I have 2 furbabies named Boots (a Boston Terror) and Sampson (a Doxie/Springer mix) who are my babies. I just turned 51 at the end of July, and let my weight get out of control after a back injury combined with meds for depression. I am almost 300 lbs right now, and it is depressing me more. I'm done being the fat girl!

I'm tired of living on the sidelines...I'm ready to get into the race!!!!!

Hi everyone!
My name is April and I found this group by clicking a link in one of the articles. I am in Central Indiana. I have been a Spark Member for about 2 years and have been active off and on. I am proud to say I have been working out at a gym for the past 8 weeks! My biggest struggle is with my eating as I am working on mindful eating. I enjoy watching The Young & The Restless and created a Spark for Y&R Fans.

I look forward to getting to know everyone!

Your light has the ability to light others- ignite the world!

Hi, my name is Wendy. I have been using Sparkpeople for 3 weeks now. In have lost 10 pounds so far. I have about 140 more to go. I have tried several times to lose weight in the past. I really believe this time I will succeed. I know I will need lots of help and motivation along the way. That is what I am looking for in a Spark team.

My name is Jessica. I joined this group months ago but haven't really been on the website since. I am a college student that has been struggling with my weight for most of my life. I am finally trying to do something about it. My asthma makes it hard, but I am going to try my hardest to lose the weight. Any and all support is welcome.

Hi, I'm Sarah. Long story short, I lost 50 pounds in 2014 and gained it all back despite many attempts to lose it and to stop gaining. I was diagnosed with moderate sleep apnea in August, then in November I went to the ER for abdominal cramps from hell which led to having ultrasound done about 11 days ago and I was diagnosed with a uterine fibroid and polycystic ovary syndrome, I feel like I finally have answers as to why losing weight has been impossible and explains a variety of health issues. I am now using a cpap machine and saw a dietician for the first time 13 days ago, got feedback that my diet is already great but was given some useful tips, she set a goal for me to walk at least 15 minutes every day, I've been walking at least 30 minutes every day since that visit, my energy has improved a little thanks to the cpap and tracking my diet.

I'm Gina. I'm 45 years old. I'm a married mother of five. Sadly God needed another angel so he took my oldest son two years old in a car accident at the age of 22.

I live in the Carolinas. I am over 100 pounds over weight. I look forward to being apart of this team, and meeting like minded people like me; ready to lose weight and be healthier.

Hi guys!

My name is Tábata and I signed up for the site almost a year ago, but I never got to use it for real. I decided to delete my old profile and start again from scratch. The last time I was enrolled here on the site, I didn't allow myself to meet new people, so I'm here to introduce myself!
Tomorrow is my first appointment with a nutritionist and I'm feeling excited / nervous about what he has to say. I no longer want to be a slave to my problems, so I have to learn how to deal with my emotional side.

Do something today that your future self will thank you for.

Hello there,

Not new to Spark but new to being active on a team. I'm working on those people skills emoticon
After all this time on spark I have never really interacted too much with others on here, I've been more of a spark lurker, and I'm hoping being more active in the community and putting myself out there will help me to make better use of the tools and support spark offers.
And making some friends here would most definitely not suck so here I am actually commenting and not just reading them.

I re-invented my image so many times that I'm in denial that I was originally an overweight Korean woman.

Hi everyone! I'm not really new to sparkpeople or this group. But it has been many years since I last visited so I would consider myself new based on that. I have spent the afternoon rediscovering sparkpeople and now wonder why I ever left.

This was always one of my favorite groups back in my active days so I'm so happy to see it still active.

Name is Angie and live in Alaska. Looking forward to participating more.

Have a great weekend!

Hi- So this embarrassing pic is my recent ugh.


46 yrs old and happily married, 17 and 19 yr old son and daughter and our farm :-).

We have 3 guinea pigs (one is my daughter's and two are hubby and mine), a cat and 2 chihuahuas. I truly love all our critters but my chihuahua, Lollipop is my heart and has been here glued to my side through migraines and other difficult health problems over the years.

I live now in the Binghamton area of NY and really love it here. My weight is, in my mind, dangerous now. With all my health problems, I fear to be cutting my life short by many years if I go on this way.

My weight is only a part of these changes-my job has to be another one. I feel limited right now for not being able to freely move, bend my knees or even go up stairs and it's limiting even for the jobs I've had to do and the ones I really would like to do. I've been living with depression and feelings of increasing worthlessness that are unfair to the very special people around me that put up with a lot. Being almost 50 yrs is a wake up call and a feeling of some waste that can be solved with a little work. My hours of work are cut down a lot and I'm starting classes with work study in Sept. That's my mini goal for mobility. Thanks to SP, I really feel I can get this done for good.

Thx for the group and support :-).

Hello my name is Teresa and I have been with Sparkpeople since 2006. I love the encouragement and support that is given from this site and I enjoy supporting others. I live in Lancaster, CA., have 2 grown adult children and 2 grandchildren. I work for the school district in the special ed department. I am truly tired of the yo-yo game here and I am serious about releasing myself from this heavy bondage. I am currently 236 lbs and would love to re-enter Onderland! :-)

Hello Everyone, My name is Holly! I just started my weight loss journey again this past Month. My long term goal is to lose around 90 pounds by this time next year. I'd love to meet anyone on the same journey to help stay accountable. I am a full time wife and mother to 3 amazing girls. I'd love to start taking care of myself and taking the time to becoming the best version of me. Hope everyone is having a great weekend so far.

Hello,
I belonged to SP a long time ago. Getting back on eating healthier and exercising I knew I would need to be here again. I found such good support then. I'm slowly getting things back on track. Next week I want to start exercising again along with healthier meals. I know it's going to be a long journey but I don't want to be the Fat girl anymore.

Hi all. Returning to SP from a few years ago with more pounds to lose but sooo ready to be truly DONE this time. So glad to see this group still here. I've overcome serious mobility issues from a chronic muscle condition and ready to apply that determination to shed my extra weight.

emoticon I joined this team a couple weeks ago and am just getting around to introducing myself.

I previously relied heavily on SP to lose 115 pounds, reaching goal weight in 2011. I've struggled a lot since then and consequently regained over 60 pounds. NO MORE. This process is much slower and more frustrating -- I've been injured for the last 2 years and have major exercise restrictions -- but I'm not letting it stop me anymore.
