July 2, 2016: Finished my first week with the Spirited Underdawg team as part of the Summer 5% Challenge.

June 2016: starting back over!

Sept. 2015: Starting the Fall 5% Challenge today. Glad to be back on the Daisy team. I have gained my weight back, but I am getting back on track and looking forward to the weight loss journey again. i am a stay at home mom and a homeschooling mom, so life is busy.

Jan. 2014 - I am getting ready to begin the Winter 5% Challenge. During the interim between challenges I had thyroid surgery (total thyroidectomy) and discovered it was thyroid cancer. Thankfully he got it all during the surgery. I am still recovering from this, so I will be setting manageable goals.

Exercise commitment - I will start with ten minutes a day and hopefully work up from there.

Nutrition plan - I will use the Spark nutrition tracker and try to stay within my daily calorie range.

Oct. 2013 - I am really enjoying Spark People. I have learned to set goals, have consistency and be part of a wonderful community. I am getting ready to start the Fall 5% Challenge and am looking forward to it.

June - 2013 I joined a while back but never really got started with the program. This time I am ready to do this. I owe it to myself to lose this weight and try to be as healthy as I can for me and for my family. Looking forward to going through this journey.

Please fill out the "Vet Record" as well if you haven't today create ur weigh in template (under the weigh in forum,, just copy and paste the first post and put it into a "reply" box. If you need any help please just ask. If you need assistance with doing the first day stuff,, plz write it on the wall,,, and or also on the Buzz around the Airport thread. Those are both visited frequently and its a GREAT way to get an answer FAST. Many of us troll these often.

    Can't WAIT to get to know you better ! We are a high energy team who really do care about each member. By high energy it's not all about "how much exercise" one does,, it's about the spirit of the team which counts.

I ve been on the team now for almost 6 yrs (You and I joined Sparks in Dec of 2010 !) and I have THRIVED with everyone. I am Diane and I am the ML (Motivational Leader) you will probably see quite a bit of me around. No doubt you will meet MaryAnn (CL,, Challenge Leader,, AKA Momma Dawg,,, Maryanngi) and Cheri (Cheririddell) who's he weigh in leader (WL) if you are struggling with losing the weight any of us 3 can be of assistance,,, we've been trained. Since Cheri is the CL she wants to help very, very much. I was STUCK aways back,,, Cheri helped me GREATLY !! WE also have 2 ELs (Extra Leaders,, who are trained to back us up when needed,, and also do the mini challenges and whatever else they would like,,, we can NOT have success without these 2 to help us out) they are Amy (Amyrosec) and Sue (Suefromri).
