Hello. My name is Bonnie and I am new to spark people. I am hoping to lose some weight and get fit. I am still figuring out how this all works, but I have been tracking my nutrition for the past 5 days so that is a start. I've been keeping my calories in the range to lose and I am already feeling lighter! This group sounds like a fun way to keep motivated.

My goal is not to lose weight but rather to be healthier, more active, to make better food choices, and to be more positive.

My name is Natalie and I oscillate between feeling that I'm really a relic from the 19th century or that I'm really still quite young. I stopped caring much about living or dying and enjoyed the zen-like attitude but I just found out a few days ago that I am going to be a grandmother--something that I thought would never happen.

Now I am motivated to stay alive and healthy. I want to get to know this baby and I want to do a bit more traveling. Being fit and healthy are essential to me now.

I'm from the Oregon Coast and have been Sparking a long time now but love meeting new friends. I'm an artistic photographer who dabbles in all kinds of arts and crafts. Seems I'm always doing something. I am a Workshop Instructor specializing in Life Skills and Employability Skills with a smattering of basic computers, keyboarding, and writing. Fun job that keeps me hopping.

Hi. I'm Marian. I've been a Spark People member for about a year and a half, with good results, but am in danger of losing the "spark", so I'm hoping to find new motivation and enthusiasm. I'm 63 and living in West Chester, OH (near Cincinnati). The interminable cold, wet weather has been getting to me, but I'm determined to not let it get me down any longer. I'm looking for fellow Spark enthusiasts to motivate and be motivated by!

Hi Everyone, I'm Dorothy, I live in Nanaimo, B.C. Have been wanting to lose some weight for some time now, a knitting friend told me about this site, I really need to get my eating in line and stay away from the doughnut shops. Sweets are my downfall, also ingrown toenails stop me from walking any distance, when my toes aren't sore I like to swim twice a week. I'm retired and so is my husband. I like knitting and quilting.

Hello emoticon , Just joined the team. My name is Sandy and I live in Ohio with my husband of 25 years and 4 dogs (rescues). I have one son, and 2 grandchildren. Mom and Dad are in their late 80's and live in Florida. Dad still plays 18 holes of golf once a week. He turned 89 in January.

I'd like to get healthy. I'm working at it.

Bye for now.

Rosalyn, my name is Arlene and I live in Idaho. You have come such a long way. My problem is being alone and bored and sedentary. I work half time and am semi-retired. I have a LOT of weight to lose and am easily discouraged. I was very happy to find this site and hope I can find what I need to get my butt in gear!

I'm new to Spark People. I'm trying to find my way around but don't have a whole lot of time to do it in. I live alone with my aging dog, Randy. I'm not real social but want to be more social. Perhaps if I were more "connected" I wouldn't eat so much. Anyway, I'm trying...
