SparkPeople Gamer Girls Unite! Team Messageboard For the rarest of all known creatures - The Gamer Girl. We are geeks and we know it., we love it! Come on in, we're just getting started! Any gaming style from video to tabletop to LARP welcome! SparkPeople Gamer Girls Unite! Team Messageboard newbie Hi everyone. I'm Angela and I'm a second year medical student on the east coast. I've been an on/off user of Spark People and similar sites over the past few years, but since starting medical school, I've found keeping healthy is something I've been struggling with a lot, and I put on quite a bit of weight. I'm looking to regain my activity level and fitness, as well as lose weight, so that I can maintain a healthy lifestyle throughout graduate school into my professional career. <BR> Sat, 29 Jul 2017 11:52:07 EST New Here Not really new to SP, been here before, but this is my first time joining this team. <BR> <BR> Anyway, I just thought I'd introduce myself, so here it goes... I'm Amber, I'm 24 and I'm looking to lose around 125 pounds. I'm a huge geek and love video games, particularly adventure/fantasy RPGs and survival horror. Some of my favorites are Skyrim (bet you couldn't have guessed that), Dark Souls, Tera, Half-Life, Battlefield, Resident Evil and SOMA. Aside from video games, I also really like p... Sun, 23 Apr 2017 11:08:52 EST Hello! Hey everyone! <BR> I'm new here, and thought I'd say hello! <BR> <BR> I used to play D&amp;D every Sunday before I moved. I play Catan, Firefly, NERF war, CAH, and some others with a new group of dudes around here at least twice a month. <BR> I'm also a relatively new online gamer. I just got my own PS4, and I've been playing Destiny all the time lately. Wed, 8 Feb 2017 01:38:43 EST Elder Scrolls Online Any of you ladies play ESO? <BR> <BR> Are you caught up in the flurry of activity surrounding Homestead? Tue, 7 Feb 2017 09:56:42 EST Hello There! Oops! I just realized this morning I never introduced myself. =) <BR> <BR> On SparkPeople I go by 2_B_Comm_Shep. Since this is a gamer group, FemShep from Mass Effect is totally who I aspire to be (hence the screen name to be Commander Shepard). She is physically fit, can take on any challenge thrown at her, and doesn't take sh*t from anybody. I would love to be that confident in my abilities! <BR> <BR> In "real life" I am a wife, mother, grad student, and wanna-be-homesteader. I use these ... Tue, 11 Oct 2016 12:00:14 EST Drem Yol Lok! Or if you're not a Skyrim fan, greetings! (Yes, I'm that kind of nerd. Don't judge me. ^_^) I'm Niki, I'm 23 and I joined SparkPeople because I want to lose all the weight that video games have caused me to gain. Okay, so playing video games didn't make me gain weight, eating a lot did, but the sitting involved with playing certainly didn't help. Anyway, this team doesn't seem super active, so I don't know if anyone will even see this, but I just wanted to introduce myself and also put it out... Wed, 21 Sep 2016 17:45:38 EST Love games! Hi, I'm Cheri. I play a lot of table top games and try to get on the XBox and PlayStation as often as I can - which isn't nearly often enough. I'm getting into Elder Scrolls and play on both consoles but am pretty low level at this point. <BR> <BR> I'm hoping to meet other gamers and offer and give support on our weight loss journey. Thu, 8 Sep 2016 14:31:59 EST Hello Hi my name is Jackie and I'm new to this group. I've been gaming since I was in HS (now I'm 30), I actually started gaming to impress a boy but never looked back. <BR> <BR> I love RPGs and starting tomorrow my online friends and I are starting a trophy war :D <BR> <BR> I've been battling my weight for as long as I can remember. I do have a fitbit if anyone wants to be my friend <link> </link> Thu, 18 Feb 2016 22:19:17 EST Gaming Convention San Ramon CA Hi there everyone <BR> So I'm looking to see if anyone is going to DunDraCon next month in San Ramon. <BR> <BR> I will be there and would love to have a workout buddy to talk to in their gym for an hour before game. <BR> <BR> <link> </link> <BR> <BR> If you don't know about DunDraCon and are in the area you may want to check out the page. <BR> Old School gaming several different kinds of RPG, LARP, Card games, Board Games, Miniatures, and new games. Even some demos ... Thu, 28 Jan 2016 19:41:44 EST New Member, Old Gamer Hi everyone, <BR> <BR> I'm an old time gamer, introduced to D&amp;D in 1979. Since then I've played GURPS, Champions, Savage Worlds, Cypher System, and much more. I play in a couple of live games, and several play by post games, and there's nothing I love better than creating a really fun character and finding just the right game to play with it. <BR> <BR> In real life, I worked in the computer field for 15 years, traveled the country in my RV for five years, fought and beat breast cancer, ... Mon, 18 Jan 2016 13:07:04 EST Good evening, fellow Gamer Girls! My name is Dani ~ I've been playing video games my whole life, but I've just recently started taking my weight seriously, so I'm trying to connect with some other people who are also working on fitness and love video games. <BR> <BR> I love making online friends, so if you ever want to chat, please message me! I would really like to find a fitness buddy who I have some similar interests with. <BR> -Dani Tue, 12 Jan 2016 17:32:07 EST Lose weight and buy that game you wanted! Along with my lvling, loading, and losing weight thread I also thought of this idea. I think this will give some people a good motivation to lose weight. Or for me at least. <BR> <BR> What if you put back so much money per pound you lose or thing you do. And when you reach the money goal you treat yourself to the game you were saving up for. Or even better, save up for a new console or computer you have been eyeing. Or maybe a trip to a convention or a vacation. <BR> <BR> My goals: <BR... Thu, 7 Jan 2016 14:17:44 EST Lvling, loading, and losing weight! After reading a couple of things in this forum and others (like PINKCAT1980). I figured a good way to help motivate exercise while gaming is to assign an activity you have to do while strengthening your in-game character. <BR> <BR> Examples: <BR> <BR> Game is loading = do jumping jacks until it loads (this is a team goal in this forum) <BR> Your character leveled? = Do 1 sit-up per lvl you are on (lvl 8 = 8 sit-ups, lvl 1 = 1 sit up) <BR> Need to do a boss fight? = Do those 15 push-ups or ... Wed, 6 Jan 2016 21:26:38 EST Hiya Hi everyone! New to the thread and new to the site! <BR> <BR> I'm a 25 year old gamer. My gamer name is some form of Kyo on most games/sites. My real name is Megan. I prefer Kyo though, since I have been going by that name for years online. <BR> <BR> I have always been overweight. My habits are usually gaming, reading, or drawing. So that doesn't help with staying thin. Since college my weight has been out of control though. Now with being tired all the time, knees hurting, and feeling a... Wed, 6 Jan 2016 13:08:13 EST Such a gamer girl! Hi! I'm Lynn and I am a gamer girl! <BR> <BR> My husband likes to tell people he's a lucky guy cause he found a woman who likes to game, but I'm the lucky one! Here's a list of stuff I play: <BR> <BR> 1) WoW - been playing since the day it released. My husband and one of my daughter's also plays so it's a family thing. <BR> <BR> 2) Hull Breach! - This is a living tactical card game set in futuristic space. My husband and I run the worldwide operative network for this game. <BR> <BR... Thu, 17 Dec 2015 14:04:55 EST Hello! I guess I never did this... ooops. I'm Audra, I live in Arkansas, I'm a struggling vegan with a cheese addiction. I play tons of video games, mostly Nintendo ones like Zelda and Pokemon but I venture in to PC games from time to time. <BR> <BR> I live with a couple guys and I fell into eating like they do and gained more weight that is comfortable for me. I think I will feel more like me after 10 more. Long term, I would like to be a "healthy" weight. I plan to start documenting all of this ...

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 19:46:40 EST Drive By Posting Hi Everyone - <BR> I'm not super active on the site right now, but intend to be in the near future (yay for school starting!). <BR> <BR> I'm Jessica - 30 years old, two step-kiddos and an almost-three-year-old daughter. I'm a social worker (hopefully will be changing this sooner rather than later) at the end of my rope. I emotionally eat like its nobodies business (doesn't matter what emotion it is, either). <BR> <BR> Video games are my solitude and I used to play predominately with ... Fri, 28 Aug 2015 21:34:38 EST Howsit? Hello all, <BR> <BR> I'm glad to have found this place! <BR> <BR> I've been on Spark before but lost my way for a while and am now slowly getting it back. Thankfully I only regained about 30 of the 100 pounds I lost before coming to my senses but that still leaves me with about 60 to go. <BR> <BR> I've been a gamer-girl for a long time, starting with endless D&D with my brother growing up, moving through tabletops and LARPs and quite a few of the MMORPGs. I like video games some too, but... Thu, 30 Jul 2015 21:21:55 EST New player has joined your game. Hello. <BR> I'm new to SparkPeople. I'll be turning 27 and I just got married to my highschool sweetheart in May, we've been together for 11 years. Now we are preparing out lives to start trying for a baby. We moved to another side of the country because of his job. So at the moment I'm kind of lacking a support and friends around me who understand me. <BR> Both me and my husband are gamers. We play games like Guild Wars, Diablo, Tomb Rider...(and don't ask me what else he plays, I can't ke... Tue, 21 Jul 2015 12:46:32 EST Hey there! Getting back into the Spark thing after losing my way hardcore. :P I lost 100 pounds previously with Spark, gained it allllll back (mah gawd), and now I'm sick of feeling like I can't do anything anymore so this time I want to make it stick! <BR> <BR> I currently play Rift but enjoy a variety of games including some D3 once in a while and some Steam games like Torchlight series, TES series, Dragon Age series, etc. I also like playing what I call "old lady" games like hidden objects and match...

I re-started my SP just this past May and have been doing well do far. I am really happy to finally be making a positive change in my eating habits. <BR> <BR> I am 50 years old and love console JRPG's as well as many other games. Started getting seriously interested with Zelda Link to the Past on SNES, (but I don't consider this game an RPG, I think of it as an Action Adventure). I Became an official addict with FFVI. In past forum lives I have gone by the name Celestina, those of you who k... Sat, 27 Jun 2015 14:09:11 EST OMG a place for me! Greetings! Even though I joined this site a million years ago, I only recently became active again. I halfheartedly joined a few teams...then I saw this one, and my heart sang! <BR> <BR> I mostly play Guild Wars 2 right now (Tarnished Coast), although I do 'dabble' in other games (Saints Row 4, GW1, waiting for DA:I to get cheap). I played Rift and WoW before that. <BR> <BR> One of these days I would like to set up my laptop on my kitchen's 'bar' because it would be at standing height. I k... Sun, 21 Jun 2015 04:36:27 EST Hello! *Waves* :D I think I'm finally ready to start focusing on myself and my health and fitness. I need help tho/likeminded people to share the journey with. <BR> <BR> I have a habit of doing too much, too soon, then getting overwhelmed and burning out. So I'm just going to set some really tiny min-goals over the next few weeks, like stupidly easy ones, and hope you'll join me. I just want to get in the habit right now of thinking about my goals and efforts and making them a part of my life. <BR> <BR> I'l... Tue, 9 Jun 2015 21:39:10 EST June 30 Day Challenge!

I also just passed my 4 wk mark doing Weight Watchers. Progress is happening, but I sought out this forum (and 1 other like it I hope) because I need help. <BR> <BR> I do play video games but not as much. My big problem is that I'm in 2 tabletop RPGs. One is a D&D variant called E6 (world doesn't go above Level 6), and the other is currently D&D as well, though just the base books. The second one changes aroun...

I've been super into video games ever since my great grandmother gave my sister and I a Nintendo for Christmas way back when. I enjoy most of the Final Fantasy games. FFVII is my favorite. I've played it more times than I can remember. I played tons of Kirby and Crash Bandicoot when I was younger. My favorite game franchise is Mass Effect. I absolutely ... Tue, 19 May 2015 14:40:58 EST Hello, sort of new here. I was in this group once before, but I left for one silly reason or another. Then I left SP for a while, and I'm back. Video games are basically my main interest these days, so I remembered this group and thought I'd join. <BR> <BR> I mostly play on XBox 360. I love RPGs and games where I run around and shoot things. I play GTA Online a lot and lately I've been replaying Fallout 3 because I want all of the achievements. <em>100</em> <BR> <BR> I also really like Skyrim, Left 4 Dead 2, an...

Most of our favorite game heroes have crazy strong quads - for running, jumping, kicking, and more! <BR> <BR> Who wants to do a 30 day Squat Challenge starting in May? We can find differing levels for each of us, depending on our starting point, and then encourage/challenge each other to go for quads of steel! <BR> <BR> Some are for "beginners" and start around 10 squats the first day and work you up to 100; or you can find more advanced ones that start you around 50 squats in the beginni...

I'm a 37 year old gamer, who is teaching my son (11) the ways of Xbox. Since I had him, my weight has slowly creeped up. This is the heaviest I have ever been. I find myself in a weird place, because I typically don't fit in with other late 30 year olds. I have tattoos, piercings, and purple hair (currently). <BR> <BR> Fri, 17 Apr 2015 12:34:49 EST What are your other nerdy hobbies? I got all excited to see the newest Star Wars teaser trailer - I haven't seen the original three movies in aaaages, but I LOVE most things by JJ Abrams, and of course seeing Harrison Ford reprising his role is super exciting! <BR> <BR> What other things do you love outside of gaming? I'm a huge fan of most Superhero movies (even though I think there are often plot holes and silly lines written in - but that's what makes HISHE a fantastic youtube channel!) and I love The Walking Dead (may no... Thu, 16 Apr 2015 20:35:20 EST What has your avatar done for you? I know there's a thread where we share our favorite avatars -- but have you ever been inspired enough by your avatar to do something? Have you pushed through an exercise thinking about your character? Have you tried a new exercise? New mindset or motivational push? <BR> <BR> I started taking a judo class because of Lara Croft :) Love the idea of being more acrobatic, and able to defend myself. Tue, 14 Apr 2015 00:58:38 EST New member :) Hi ladies! <BR> <BR> I'm new to this team so thought I'd stop by and say hello! I have used spark people before but not for quite some time - I am currently using the wii fit u to try to lose some weight - I have lost 10lbs so far since December which isn't great but I must say I haven't been trying too hard! I've had it in my mind that I wanted to lose weight and I've been a bit more careful about what I eat but this morning I weighed myself and realised that it's actually quite a big loss... Sun, 12 Apr 2015 05:34:51 EST Psyched about this team!! Hello all! I have to say, I was THRILLED when I saw this spark team!!! I love video games! I also love table top role-playing!

As for why I joined, I'm a big board game junkie. I play Pathfinder on the weekends (we just finished a campaign where I reached lvl 20!) and I can't get enough of the tile based game Carcassonne [for those who don't know:<BR>board_game)].

My son is an avid gamer and we have collected all the systems. We have a great video game store called Game Haven that sells new and retro games. I can't go in there by myself. Too tempting.

Mon, 12 Jan 2015 03:29:57 EST Hi, everyone! My name is Tory, and I've just joined the Spark People community. I'm so glad that I found this group, because I seriously love video games, and they are a huge part of my life.

I look forward to meeting everyone! Tue, 30 Dec 2014 02:43:04 EST Newbie here Hi all, my name is Altria, I am a gamer and anime fan, looking to lose somewhere in the neighborhood of 50-60lbs. Wanting to do that through healthy eating choices, working out, the whole shebang. I've got hypothyroidism and PCOS which makes life a bit difficult, but I think I can do this. <BR> <BR> Any questions or anything, feel free to ask! Tue, 9 Dec 2014 10:16:29 EST New Hihi folks! Glad there's a gamer girl group here. I mostly play fantasy RPG and MMORPGs (currently Wildstar and Elder Scrolls Online), but I also dig games like StarCraft, Bioshock, Borderlands etc...I've lost 11 pounds so far and have 26 more to go. Weeeeee! Wed, 29 Oct 2014 23:16:42 EST Anyone excited for Warlords of Draenor? I'm sort of excited. It's hard to be excited when you're not max level (I started shortly before Cataclysm.) I loved Pandaria, new starting zone & race (which is now my main having abandoned my poor Nelf.) I'm hoping to hit 90 before Draenor, but we'll see. Baby + grad school is not fortuitous for gaming. Thu, 18 Sep 2014 08:04:18 EST Hello everybody Greetings and Salutations. <BR> <BR> My name is Tia and i'm 31 with a beautiful child and significant other (SO). My SO and myself have decided it is time to shed the pounds we packed on and find the skinny people trapped inside. Together we have about 175 pounds to lose, and a wonderful journey to share on the way there. I just joined sparks people yesterday and look forward to getting to know people and exploring the world of fitness around me. Mon, 18 Aug 2014 11:37:27 EST New releases you are looking forward too Hey everyone! <BR> <BR> Just wondering what games you gals are looking forward to in the comming months. I'm not always informed of new games on the release horizon, so I thought I'd ask! <BR> <BR> Personally, I'm looking forward to Dragon Age Inquisition (Oct. 7th) and The Evil within (Oct. 14th) Mon, 11 Aug 2014 11:58:36 EST Happiness is a warm controller Hi, Everyone! I'm working me way through Dragon Age Origins to get ready for the Inquisition release this fall. <BR> <BR> It's too hot to go outside during the long, sultry summers here in New Orleans so I spend a lot of time gaming or watching my boyfriend game or talking about gaming.....You get the picture. <BR> <BR> <em>20</em> Sun, 10 Aug 2014 10:40:07 EST Hi, I'm new I'm hoping this group isn't inactive!. Hi, I'm Annie. I don't know if I'm exactly a "gamer girl" since I don't have a lot of chance to play lately. When I do, I play WoW, I've played SWTOR, which I loved as well. Currently, I'm getting my fix playing the Sims, the steam sale dragged me back into it and I'm having a lot of fun with all the expansions I picked up. It's easy to pick up & drop between grad school and toddler demands! Sun, 6 Jul 2014 06:20:43 EST 5 bonus XP to everyone Good morning, ladies, <BR> <BR> I'm Jessica and new to the boards, though not new to Sparkpeople. I've lurked for several years, but have finally decided to dive full in- tracking, message boards, everything- during the last month. I play D&D, old World of Darkness (my campaign is going on 6 years now), The Sims 2, and the occasional Guild Wars, plus too many card/board games to list. I've lost 87lbs over the last 5 years and looking for a little motivation to tackle the last 25 so I decided... Wed, 25 Jun 2014 14:07:29 EST Thrilled to find this group! Hi everybody, I'm Melanie and I'm an avid girl gamer. I've been playing video games since I was about 10 years old and I've been hooked ever since. I currently have a PS3, Xbox 360, WiiU, and PC in my house and I play all of them. My favorite genres are RPG, adventure, and strategy. Of course, I stop playing games eventually and go exercise. :) <BR> <BR> It's nice to meet all of you and I hope I can make some new friends here! If you have a Steam account or a Playstation account and want me ... Fri, 20 Jun 2014 11:51:57 EST Graduation = More Fun Times Hello! My name is Aubrey, and as of today, I am exactly two weeks from graduating nursing school! This means that I have more time to do other things, such as finally play through all the Final Fantasies that I never got around to beating and dinking around in more MMOs, all while focusing more on myself and my health. Wed, 4 Jun 2014 23:51:30 EST Hello All! I am happy to find a place where I can chat with others about games! My fave game would be the TombRaider series {now if they would just design one to go with Kinect I would really be in heaven :)}. Of course, if it was programmed correctly, I might actually have more difficulty (but isn't that what it's all about)! <BR> I also enjoy some computer lazy time stuff, mostly hidden object and word games. <BR> I look forward to many discussions with everyone. Wed, 5 Mar 2014 09:51:51 EST Hello! Super excited this is a group!! <BR> <BR> My favorite games are Kingdom Hearts, Skyrim, GTA 5, Minecraft and of course the Sims. I also dabble in C.OD/B.O games but I've become bored with the same maps lately! <BR> <BR> Xbox gamertag: ItsAGameBetch (sorry for vulgarity) <BR> Ps3: iits_nut_meg <BR> <BR> Feel Free to add me :) Happy gaming everyone! Sun, 16 Feb 2014 20:52:39 EST Hello hello! Hello! I recently joined a gym and started tracking on Spark, but I haven't spent much time getting to know the community yet. <BR> <BR> I'm a graphic designer and illustrator living in Minneapolis, MN. <BR> <BR> I love video games, dinosaurs, drawing, building stuff, reading, cycling, and cooking. <BR> <BR> Feel free to check out my page for a bit more of my story, and add me as a friend if you'd like! Wed, 12 Feb 2014 13:15:07 EST I'm back! Well, I am back after a divorce and a pity party. I let things get out of control and in the heartache forgot that I deserved better. I was so happy with myself when I was here from 2010 to 2011 so I decided I needed to come back. Hugs and love to all and let's kick February's tush! Sat, 1 Feb 2014 11:29:15 EST Yay! A Gaming Group. Hello everyone. <BR> <BR> I have been on Sparkpeople for a while, but really didn't commit to it in the past. I have finally decided that I really need to get in better health and commit full time to it. <BR> <BR> My two big hobbies right now are board gaming and knitting. My husband and I run our local game group at the local library....mostly kids and a few adults. We bring a lot of our games from home. Because it is such a small town, most people have never heard of a lot of the game... Thu, 30 Jan 2014 12:25:48 EST Making this group active again Hi all! I see new folks introducing themselves, and not much else happening in this group, shall we get some discussion going on? <BR> <BR> I'm new here myself, in search of ways to turn losing weight loss into a game. I'm a gamer through and through, tabletop, larp, and reformed WoW addict (no really, it was BAD.) I've started setting goals for myself and pushing myself to keep them, setting up rewards as I go. Once upon a time, my reward was food. "Oh, finished a paragraph for a paper... Wed, 22 Jan 2014 11:07:00 EST Crazy Old Lady Gamer I can't believe I found a gamer group on Spark People. This is going to be fun. I am a guild leader of an EQ2 guild on the Freeport server. I need to lose another 75 lbs. I have mobility issues and that is kind of what got me into gaming. Since I live alone at least while in game I can talk to other people via a mumble server. I've been around Spark now for a while. I lurked a bit and then started trying to figure out how to join things. <BR> <BR> And I am an older lady of 65 so los... Mon, 20 Jan 2014 01:06:54 EST Heya I'm an eclectic video gamer. The first computer game my family owned was on an Apple II, and I've played games on Macs and Windows ever since. (A few on a VAX mainframe in college, even.) I bought my first ever console a few years ago, and have been working through Playstation and Wii games. <BR> <BR> I recently joined SparkPeople because my cholesterol is over 300. For the next six weeks, I plan to live with some extreme (for me) diet and exercise changes. Afterwards, I'll get a cholestero... Sun, 19 Jan 2014 13:27:10 EST Helloooo I've been a gamer almost my entire life. Grew up with a Dad who was the computer tech for a local Technology Center, which meant we got to play computer games all weekend in the computer classrooms. (YAY). <BR> <BR> Nowadays, you can find me gaming on XBOX 360, Wii, Nintendo 3DS, or my PC. I've been playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf like an addict these days. I haven't beat a game in a while because I have a terrible habit of getting bored and buying a new game to appease my boredom. <BR> ... Tue, 14 Jan 2014 14:46:02 EST Hello! Hi there, I'm Mare. I've been a gamer all my life. Specifically I enjoy PC games with a focus on MMOs. Currently my soul belongs to Guild Wars 2, but previously I've played Everquest, City of Heroes, Rift, Tera, City of Steam, Neverwinter and Anarchy Online. In addition to Guild Wars 2 I also have The Secret World currently installed though I never play it. I'll be making a return to Neverwinter once the new archery class is introduced. Though I live in Ireland I tend to play on American serv...

It is on the Wolfsbane shard, it is a casual adult guild, we also like to help our members so if you need help with quests or have questions just ask. You can look me up as Crystallas in game for an invite, or you can look up the guild thru the looking for guild tool bar in game. The guild does have a ...

Who's the woman/girl in video game canon that you admire the most? <BR> <BR> Right now I'm re-playing Ocarina of Time, and I had forgotten how awesome Sheik is. She's got a lot of competition, of course. Who's your favorite? Sun, 8 Sep 2013 14:19:35 EST Hi Ladies! I've been a long time PC gamer. <BR> <BR> Right now I'm playing mostly indie games that I bought from the steam sale. Some of my favorite games are the Bio-shock Series, COD4, Portal Series, and The Walking Dead. <BR> <BR> My biggest problem is sitting in front of the computer all day. Whether its work, school, or gaming, I am literally here all day. <BR> <BR> I have started a weight loss Vlog on Youtube to help me stay accountable and to find healthier ways to be a gamer. My Vlog is cal... Tue, 30 Jul 2013 09:45:40 EST Hello all!

Fri, 8 Feb 2013 22:57:10 EST GM trying to lose LBS Hey guys, <BR> <BR> I'm the game master for my table top -rpg group, a video gamer, fan fiction writer, and all around nerd. <BR> <BR> Thought I'd join because it fits :D Thu, 31 Jan 2013 11:12:08 EST A brief introduction I just joined Sparkpeople and figured I'd join some groups. I love RPGs, but will try most games. Most of the games I play are video games but I have also done text-based RP. I think it would be cool if we could get some kind of a RPG going on this site in which healthy eating or exercising can be used to earn achievements or abilities. It might be hard to coordinate, I don't know. Just an idea. Let me know if anyone is interested or if this is already happening somewhere and I'm just not...

I love games of all sorts, especially rpgs and Survival Horror. I play WoW regularly when my computer is in working order. Would love to try D&D if I could get a group together. Glad to see there's a group like this on Spark, and excited to be a part of it.

Yo... Fri, 23 Nov 2012 01:30:25 EST New Girl, Loves D&D Hey everyone! <BR> <BR> Recently, I went back on the crusade to lose weight...again. This time it's going to be for real, because this site is a great motivator and support. <BR> <BR> I love most any game, but I do a lot of XBOX and PC. And my love affair with D&D started back in 2nd edition and never ended (in spite of all the changes...including 4th). <BR> <BR> Anyway, it's good to be here. <BR> Rachel Tue, 23 Oct 2012 13:19:06 EST Borderlands 2 So has anybody gotten this game yet? I went to the midnight release the other night. Sheesh, was I outnumbered! For a while I was the only girl, and then within the last 20 mins or so, 2 others showed up. <BR> <BR> Anyway, I love it so far! I'm playing co-op with the boyfriend and I'm Maya, the Siren (I also played the Siren in the first). I think I'm going to start a solo game today and be Zer0, the assassin. It sucks that work gets in the way of my playing! Haha.

I've always had trouble with weight and part of the reason I want to lose it(besides my health) is so I can fit into costumes. My friend wants to cosplay Assassin's Creed and I just will not look good in that outfit. So my favorite games consist of older final fantasy games, DnD, Magic the Gathering, Pokemon, Batman, and the Baldur's Gate series. One ...

Wed, 25 Jan 2012 11:34:03 EST Howdy from a LARPer Heya - just signed on today. I'm a larper and I'm motivated to get in shape because I'm heading over to Germany this year for the world's largest larp (7000 people!). Yikes! That's in August so I'm hoping I can stick with my fitness goals until then. <BR> <BR> I just quit the gym as a means of getting serious about losing weight. It doesn't seem smart, but I think I've been slacking at the gym and using it as a crutch. Even if I didn't really work hard at the gym, because I'd walked through... Sun, 22 Jan 2012 19:43:48 EST ohai *warning..this is kinda long* My name is Amanda (in game Jozzette). I've played games ever since my grandparents bought me a Nintendo for xmas back in the early 90's. I would sit around with my three cousins, all boys, and play Street Fighter, Mario, Duck Hunt etc. Then I got a Super Nintendo and with that came my love of Castlevania. HAWT! When i turned 15 I got a Playstation for xmas from my parents. I didn't have any games to play on it though so my bf let me borrow FF7 and the FF7 gaming guide. My afternoons were fill... Wed, 18 Jan 2012 13:02:10 EST hi girls i started my descent into gaming with might and magic about 10 years ago, then i moved onto diablo, baulder's gate and animal crossing. finally, i discovered wow, and have been hooked ever since it came out. i mostly solo with my dwarf hunter, and sometimes i run dungeons with my husband. i have tried out a bunch of other mmorpg's, but i always come back to wow. Sat, 7 Jan 2012 19:12:30 EST Hey There!! Hello Ladies! <em>213</em> <BR> <BR> I can't tell you how nice it is to have found the verious gamer groups. I'm pretty new to Spark transfering over from a different website. I love it here thus far and since I've been here I've lost an additional 2#. <BR> <BR> I currently play WoW for the most part but love all sorts of games/platforms. It's my daughter and my game time for the most part. Speaking of which, she just turned 18. Looking forward to my future and new friendships via SP! Mon, 5 Dec 2011 05:18:27 EST Noobs Unite! Hey guys just wanted to say hi and such. Just to let you know a little about myself, I am a mom, recently divorced, and a dork/geek. Believe me I own those titles. Anyway just got my best friend on board for kicking my ass and helping me loose some weight. While I kick her ass and do the same. Hope you are all having a great day and working the program well! Wed, 23 Nov 2011 10:43:52 EST A challenger appears! Hi hi! <BR> I'm a gothy gamer girl who just discovered this group through new friends who added me. I enjoy all things nerdy, and a wide variety of games. My current addiction are iphone games because I've discovered I can play them obsessively while riding my exercise bike. Win! I'm also a big fan of board games and own every current gaming console except the 3DS (still have my DSi). <BR> <BR> Megan Mon, 14 Nov 2011 13:50:42 EST Hai! ^.^ Hi ladies! My name is Ally but my ingame name is (usually) Elphy. I'm 24 years old and engaged to another gamer. I'm inlove with MMOs. My fiance and I have been playing WoW for a few years now. We love raiding! But now that WoW is kinda meh we're spending more free time on Rift and anticipating all the new releases coming up (SWTOR!!!)! <BR> Im just looking for a new group to make some friend and gain motivation. I was doing really well when I first started sparkpeople but I've kinda lost my... Wed, 9 Nov 2011 09:02:02 EST I'm a noob to this group Hi ladies! <BR> <BR> I'm also fairly new to posting on blogs. I've usually kept pretty much to myself in so many areas of my life. But I know I need help in losing weight. So here I am! Both my husband and I are gamers. We have all of the systems, Wii, Ps2 &3, Xbox, & Xbox360. and I have a Nintendo DSi. We also enjoy playing Munchkin by Steve Jackson and any of the add ons. For some reason I've really been getting into Plants Vs. Zombies. I started about 2 weeks ago, and play it every chance... Wed, 26 Oct 2011 16:18:16 EST Does running from creepers count as exercise? Hi all! I am a 30 yr old SAHM to a 4 yr old, and our whole family games, so thanks for the group where I don't have to do the yuppie mommy thing I am surrounded with here, hehe! Anyone else into Minecraft right now? I am currently playing that while waiting for Skyrim, Kingdoms of Amalur, Guild Wars 2, Torchlight 2, and Secret World. I also take my 3DS everywhere with me (the built in pedometer rocks), Legend of Zelda and Lego Star Wars are my current favs, not many street pass encounters whe... Sun, 23 Oct 2011 14:26:52 EST Need to share my rage with someone... So yesterday someone decided that it would be ok for them to help themself to my belongings. They broke into my house and took my 19in flat screen hd tv, my xbox 360, my boyfriend's wii, both our laptops and a few other things. They also took my xbox 360 game Rage (the only game they did take) which cost me $50 and I got to play twice. <BR> <BR> I never thought I was an emotional eater but yesterday I was starving but nothing sounded good really. <BR> <BR> People suck.... Wed, 19 Oct 2011 11:28:40 EST Don't mind if I do Hey my name's Stephy and I am so glad I found you peeps! I've been an avid gamer grrl since I was little and found there's not to many gamer grrls to connect with especially where I live. Well I've also acquired extra poundage over the years and now I am committed to getting from my current weight of 235 (eek!) down to 165-ish. Right now I'm in the middle of the Borderlands campaign and looking forward to playing skyrim,Arkkam City,Halo CE ,and Bioshock infinity. Wed, 19 Oct 2011 01:56:35 EST Oh, NO! The Zombies ate my brain!!! Hello, I'm new to the team, to weight loss and really to games in general. I was introduced to Resident Evil 5 last year by my brother on the 360 and... it clicked! It clicked hard! We beat the game within a week; probably would have been less time but, between his work and my school we did the best we could. I have taken my addiction to this game to a whole new level; ask me where a gun, shiny or neat trick is and I can find it for you; I've logged over a 100 hrs on the game. Oblivion w... Fri, 30 Sep 2011 17:52:50 EST best online store for D&D Dice? Hey howdy. <BR> <BR> My GM in my D&D for dummies (i mean newbies) group told me to just go get some D&D dice. well, there're lots of different dice that seem to fit under the name of D&D when i look on e-bay and other things like that. Most have numbers and are the various shapes up to d-20 (bidding on some now). others look like they have symbols all over them and things like that. <BR> <BR> Where would the best place be to get D&D dice at? also, the ones with symbols, are they for ano... Sun, 18 Sep 2011 09:35:29 EST There Will Not Be Cake I am super excited to see that there is a team devoted to gaming girls!! One of the biggest obstacles I am facing in my weight loss is the fact that gaming is my favorite hobby and unfortunately, I don't have a kinect, which means my hobby doesn't have me moving around too much. I work and go to school full time and have a 2 year old to boot, so my time is taken up constantly. When I do get a free minute I devote it almost entirely to my xbox. I was worried that my new excercise regimen w... Wed, 14 Sep 2011 18:41:31 EST Review: Android OS vs. Windows--any thoughts? I know, gaming group and all, but since most of us play through or with computers, i thought i'd ask or start discussion. <BR> <BR> I've been around windows my whole experience with computers when it came out, so i'm super used to it. i haven't been brave enough to try out mac more than a few minutes at a time, just not used to it. <BR> <BR> But i've barely heard anything about Android OS, and found lots of netbooks having that available. Apparently its the big threat to Apple's operating s... Sun, 11 Sep 2011 22:19:11 EST glad to see I'm not the only one.. Hi everyone. My name is Joyce but I do answer to Meg or Megara.. scary I know but I've been playing MMOs for a while now and the first time I answered to my character name out of game was a shocker to me.. the guy friend that I was with found it the funniest thing ever. (I swear he's still laughing!) I've been gaming since back in the old Nintendo days (please don't judge me!) and moved on to different consoles and now I'm playing MMOs.. (I currently have two on the go.) <BR> <BR> I have sl... Mon, 5 Sep 2011 06:16:56 EST 'ello everybody :) Hello! My name is Mimi. I don't really follow the whole "zomg gamergurrrl" fandom thing but I'm definitely a girl, and I definitely spend a lot of time gaming. <BR> It's actually my weakness, and that combined with being a full-time student I ended up becoming overweight. So here I am! Trying to lose some weight, but I bet it will be a lot easier knowing that there are others :) <BR> <BR> I'm mostly a RPG or RTS kinda gal, a pretty huge obsessive Zelda fan, and I REALLY dig old school consol... Thu, 25 Aug 2011 14:01:22 EST Um yep, that's me Hi All, I'm Melissa (I answer to Peach too - most of my chars have that as part of their name) from Cincinnati. I happened to notice a GW screen shot and had to come check out the group. I've been playing mostly casual games over the last year. <BR> I've been a sp member for a couple years or so, I think, but I never used it much, to my detriment. I was diagnosed with a hypothyroid issue a bit over 1.5 years ago, and suddenly things made a lot more sense, although it still didn't make losing ...

Hello! <BR> <BR> I am very glad to see that this group existed :D <BR> <BR> I have previously been on Weight Watchers, but the point- system did never fit me and I felt like I gave a lot of money for almost nothing. So when I read on a internetpage that there were many who were here, then I thought to try. I was positiv surprised that it's free. And the content! So far I'm impressed. I really hope that this is the time I manage to change my lifestyle and my weight. <BR> <BR> I have pract... Sun, 14 Aug 2011 04:48:18 EST Hi There! My name is Brittany, and, like you, I am a gamer nerd. I'm 25, engaged, and in school for game programming. I love MMOs, and have played a large number of them, some for years at a time. I have been testing SWTOR with my fiance recently. I've also become addicted to the newer Lego games on PS3 (only if they have trophies though - I'm a trophy fanatic!!). In my free time I read (fantasy primarily - Pratchett, Gaiman, Jordan, Salvatore, etc.), play games (obviously), and watch various movies/TV... Fri, 12 Aug 2011 17:01:52 EST Me again...Re-i introduction Hey everyone! I am re-introducing myself. I am never sure what to say so we will start with the basics :0) <BR> My name is Samantha. i live in Denver, CO. I have a beautiful partner, two kitties, and two puppies. They are the best reason to wake up every morning. I currently work several jobs and enjoy most of them but seem to always be in a state of exaustion. Working and trying to figure that out so that I am not so tired anymore (suggestions welcome). <BR> When it comes to my weight, this ... Thu, 11 Aug 2011 11:16:19 EST A New Re-Introduction I had vanished for a long while, even out of a lot of my own life. A sudden stress-related, hormone-induced 30 lb weight gain in less than a month started me really worrying about my weight and health, then I got some down, then back up, then back down, then back up to 222 (a mere 4 lbs from where the 30 lb gain put me). Did South Beach Diet for a couple months, lost 12 lbs, kept 10 off for a year until I started Depo at the beginning of this year. <BR> <BR> My appetite increased, and I gain... Sat, 6 Aug 2011 12:12:30 EST What are you playing this weekend 8/5 edition What gaming plans do you have this weekend? I'm thinking about either Majesty 2 or building a new city in Pharaoh. What's on your plate? Fri, 5 Aug 2011 07:41:56 EST CA Hey there! <BR> I'm Tanya and I'm 22 years old - I used to be big into WoW but quit that, I sometimes play Diablo 2 offline but my main true love is Combat Arms! I'm a sucker for First Person Shooters and it's always fun to make guys rage and make them more mad by saying they're getting owned by a girl ;o) <BR> To be truthfully honest, I think girl gamers are more skillful.. HAHA! Thu, 4 Aug 2011 14:23:45 EST Old school gaming I'm an old fart of 36 and have been playing games since my little tabletop Pac Man game. It looked like a miniature arcade game that ate 4 C batteries. I remember having to buy a new monitor for Theme Hospital because my old one wasn't SVGA compatible. Remember the heyday of Bullfrog? Ahh man damn EA for eating them up! <BR> <BR> Even with the plethora of new games out, and the tons of games that will be coming out for the holiday season soon, I still find myself playing the same old games. ... Wed, 3 Aug 2011 07:52:33 EST learning from my rpg? i have ALWAYS loved rpgs. when i first starting playing console games, up til today, my favorites are always LONG games with the ability to upgrade characters until they are insanely powerful. and in games like final fantasy, i never even thought about the fact that i would spend HOURS grinding away until i had fully upgraded my characters. <BR> <BR> i was thinking about it the other day - why am i willing to spend hours getting characters in my game stronger through repetitive tasks, but ... Wed, 3 Aug 2011 00:52:27 EST New Team Goals Discussion Good afternoon ladies, <BR> <BR> As some of you have mentioned, we have a lack of good goals.

Tue, 2 Aug 2011 15:40:52 EST My Introduction :) Hello all! I made a fresh start yesterday at being healthy. I've had my ups and downs throughout my life, especially in regards to my weight. I am a terrible yo yo dieter and I have struggled with one unhealthy eating habit after the other for far too long now. It's time for me to forget about yesterday, and move forward with today. It's time to do this. It's time to get healthy. It's time to get some self esteem. It's time to be happy again. I am a 22 year old newlywed, married to the man of... Tue, 2 Aug 2011 11:23:34 EST My name is Julie, and I'm a gamer nerd. I've always been a gamer. My dad had an Apple II and we had a commodore before we got an Atari. <BR> <BR> These days I'm more into PC games. I started with Star Craft, moved to Guild Wars, then went on to World of Warcraft.

My game time is after they are all in bed. :D <BR> <BR> I've struggled with my weight since puberty, and shortly after I had my triplets I f... Sun, 31 Jul 2011 23:18:29 EST How to DM I've been playing tabletop roleplaying games for almost 10 years now, for many years with the same people. Because all of my friends at home are more experienced with DMing, I never tried because I didn't want to run a horrible campaign and have them criticize it too much. But now, I have a group of friends at school who aren't all that experienced with rpgs, and I'm thinking I want to DM a D20 Modern zombie apocalypse campaign. <BR> <BR> Are any of you experienced DMs? How do you get starte... Fri, 29 Jul 2011 16:09:13 EST Hi! =D I like games - obviously! =) The only things I haven't been able to get into are tabletops and larping. I've given them a good try, though. I still play Diablo 2 when I get a bit bummed out. I'm fairly well-rounded out geek and I am hoping to make new friends on spark since I spend most of my time taking care of my mom. =) <BR> <BR> Wed, 27 Jul 2011 10:33:57 EST Hello Hi I'm new. And I'm a gamer girl. I met my husband over a game of AD&D. We just started a new campaign in Pathfinder last night but I've played a wide variety of roleplaying games. We also play tabletop miniature games, video games, board games, etc. We're a pretty game heavy family. <BR> <BR> I live in British Columbia in Canada and have 2 little boys (8 and 5). Looking forward to getting to know people here. Wed, 27 Jul 2011 09:57:21 EST Hello Everyone Hi guys! <BR> <BR> I'm Kristin and a gamer who is looking into losing weight. I currently weigh 170 lbs (ugh) and hoping to eventually get down to 125. <BR> <BR> I play all sorts of games. Started with forum rpgs (think collaborative fiction) and then progressed to other games including Diablo 2 with my computer, Table top rpgs (including D&D 3.5, D&D 4.0, World of Darkness, Harn, and Warhammer) as well as two LARPs (one high fantasy and the other post apocalyptic zombie survival horror). <... Thu, 21 Jul 2011 18:43:47 EST Hello! Hello ladies! <BR> I've been gaming for about 10 years now. I love tabletop RPGs and tabletop wargames. Lately I've gotten into Warmachine/Hordes, if anyone happens to play. <BR> I suppose I could also mention the computer gaming, ha ha. <BR> <BR> There's a local gaming club in the town where I live, but because it's such a small town, I'm the only girl. It's kind of weird when I'm always surrounded by gamer-guys and no other gamer-girls. I hoped that I could meet some other awesome gaming ... Thu, 21 Jul 2011 13:35:13 EST 'Allo!!!! Hi All - new to the team here. I'm 24, from Maryland, and I guess you can say I'll play any game at least once. <BR> <BR> I just moved in with my BF and we have three cabinet arcade games (Battletoads, Killer Instinct, and Miss PacMan/Galaga) as well as a Lord of the Rings pinball and a megatouch machine. We're currently pushing through Baldur's Gate together, but I play anything from Mario to Little Big Planet to a million puzzle games on my iPhone. <BR> <BR> I work in cubicleland with no... Tue, 19 Jul 2011 09:34:18 EST been gaming for 20 years Hi everyone. I was introduced to LARPs when I was 20 years old (20 years ago!). I met my husband there although we didn't get together then. I have done a lot of dice and paper games too. My husband and his business partner have written one and they sell it online. Because of them I have played a lot of dice and paper RPGs. I also played a lot with one of my ex-boyfriends too. So I'm not a GREAT player in any one system, but I have played a lot of different systems and I really enjoy the char... Mon, 18 Jul 2011 09:46:08 EST Is anyone here a huge Kingdom Hearts fan like me? There is a thread on here about leveling a character through weight loss, and i was wondering if anyone would want to join me in doing it Kingdom hearts style lol Sun, 17 Jul 2011 17:06:06 EST City of Heroes Anyone here play City of Heroes? If so, where do you play? I just started playing recently and I can't really remember which server I'm on... I think it's Virtue. <BR> <BR> Once I change my global I'll put it here.

Tue, 12 Jul 2011 16:38:05 EST Team Goals Would it be possible to get some more team goals for our group. A hundred pushups a day? That's a little extreme, don't you think? Here are some suggestions for team goals for our group. <BR> <BR> 20 push ups a day <BR> 20 sit ups a day <BR> Exercise 3 days a week <BR> Eat healthy snacks while gaming <BR> Do jumping jacks during load screens or cut scenes <BR> Don't drink soda <BR> Drink 8 cups of water a day <BR> Eat five servings of fruits and vegetables a day <BR> Use the stairs instead o... Tue, 12 Jul 2011 13:56:12 EST How do you deal with other girl gamers? I'm looking for some advice and it hit me that you gals might be the best place! I'm an avid roleplayer and have been trying out some new groups since my last one dissolved via people moving out of state. I've never had a problem with other girl gamers before, now I feel like I walk into the room and get hit with an attack! How do I relate? <BR> <BR> I understand I'm probably the problem, I'm the "one of the guys"-type player. I'm a technical person who also happens to (usually) have people ... Mon, 11 Jul 2011 17:05:46 EST Hey Hey!! Hi there! I am a gamergirl in Washington state. I play anything, but mostly RIFT, WoW, Minecraft, Secondlife... have played a lot of EQ2 as well. Not too many console games, but have them. I feel myself going to blubber sitting for hours; the gaming addiction doesn't sit well with my food addiction. Trying to change that! Glad I found other gamer chicks out there in the same boat! Nice to meet you all! Mon, 11 Jul 2011 07:35:21 EST Do you ever use gaming as a reward? Sometimes I use it like this...if I'm really into a game, I can't play it unless I do my workout. LOL <BR> <BR> Tonight, I can't dive into Zelda 3DS (even though I really want to) until I do my Jillian Michaels and Turbo Jam workout lol Fri, 8 Jul 2011 12:24:56 EST Hello! Hi! My name's Samantha. I'm a 20 year old college student hoping to get down to 136 pounds by my 21st birthday at the end of October. I don't know that everyone would consider me a gamer girl. I don't play video games (I've always been awful at them.) or tabletop games, but I've been to two larp events and will be playing my first game of D&D in a couple weeks for my boyfriend's birthday. A lot of my friends are gamers, and my boyfriend is, too, so I thought I might enjoy this group. Also, ... Wed, 29 Jun 2011 23:57:49 EST Hey hey Im PieWar ^_^ Hi everyone! I was so glad to see other girl gamers trying to live healthy! I'm so bad about sitting in front of my computer or Xbox playing for hours and not thinking about the health aspect of my life. Now I'm ready to make a change and be a fit gamer! <BR> <BR> ~PieWar~ Wed, 29 Jun 2011 12:59:37 EST Larp exercise? Hi there Gamer Girls! <BR> <BR> I was wondering if any larpers could chime in with their thoughts. This weekend I will be NPCing (monstering, DMing, etc.) at a larp. Since I will be missing my normal Friday evening workout because of the event, do you think I could count monstering one large scale field battle as any sort of exercise. I tend to break a sweat and fight pretty hard (I love being a girl fighter type), but I'm not sure how that would count towards exercise or if it would count. ... Wed, 29 Jun 2011 10:26:28 EST Hello hello hello! Hey there, I'm new to the group, but not new to SparkPeople - I had an account about a year and a half ago or so, but I never kept up with it. <BR> <BR> I'm more of a fangirl who also games rather than a straight up gamer!girl. I play mostly on the PC but I also play D&D and the occasional console game. Current favorites are The Sims 3 and the Dragon Age games (Bioware is win!). <BR> <BR> I was so excited to find this group! I'll try to keep my fangirl squees to a minimum. :p ;) Sun, 26 Jun 2011 23:06:25 EST Noob... :/ Hello! I'm an artist/gamer. Love xbox 360, ds, WoW... <BR> <BR> I have tried unsuccessfully recently to loose weight; hoping online support and friends will change that. :) Sun, 26 Jun 2011 11:01:35 EST New Around Here... Hello, I'm pretty new to SparkPeople, but it seems like a really neat website. <BR> <BR> I'm not much of a video gamer, mostly I'm into table top, specifically D&D and shadow run. I also play a little WoW, when I have the time. I'm trying to lose 25 pounds, and get into better shape. <BR> <BR> I think I've found the nerdiest possible motivation, my Fiancé and I are saving up to go to PAX next year, and I'm cosplaying a night elf, for better of worse. I can stick to my health plan, and lo... Fri, 24 Jun 2011 20:32:40 EST My Gamer Girl Intro :-) I'm not new to Spark or Games...

Oh, and I can't leave out my Wii! <BR> <BR> I'm a Pokemon geek at heart (even have figurines on my desk at work) and I play the gameboy and DS versions of well as console games. <BR> <BR> Right now I am starting Zelda on the 3DS and Alice on the PS3. <BR> <BR> I do want to play my husband's 360 to try Dragon Age eventually Fri, 24 Jun 2011 14:47:21 EST New to Gamer Girls! Hi there! <BR> <BR> I'm new to Gamer Girls, but I've been on SP for a few weeks now. I'm a huge dweeb. I love to LARP (currently playing three games) and also enjoy table top and video games too. Hoping to be more active once I lose some weight so I can either chase down the monsters as a PC or run a muck and cause havok as an NPC! <BR> <BR> Looking forward to meeting some lovely lady gamers out there and also to getting healthy alongside you all. <BR> <BR> Tue, 21 Jun 2011 13:49:14 EST Ancient Relic Not only are gamer girls rare (particularly in Southern small towns) but as I get older, it gets worse. I just turned 37, and I have a difficult time finding others like me. The Internet has been a blessing! <BR> <BR> Whoaaa though, I looked at the group goals, and said NO!!!!! I'm disabled and have ballooned to 300+ pounds. I'm at the huff and puff for 10 minute stage. Plus, I have fibromyalgia, which means I'm in significant pain most of the time. <BR> <BR> Well, as long as nobody ca...

I'm a cliche gamer girl, living in Idaho (recently moved here from Portland, OR), and the question I hear most often when people walk into my house here, and see the Star Wars pop art, framed comic books, World of Warcraft disk boxes, and collectible figurines is "You don't really like that stuff do you? You just let your husband put it up, right?" My, bitches, if there is ever a divorce there will be a war of the roses over the Wolverine maquette, and who gets to stay in ...

I'm 26 years old and recently married. <BR> <BR> I've been playing D&D for about a decade (maybe longer) and I'm also a big fan of RPG video games. I never got into MMORPGs, but I've played way to much NWN and Dragon Age to be healthy. Haha. <BR> <BR> Right now my gaming group is hitting a lull... we started playing in college and folks are getting married, having babies, and being busy with life things, so I'm... Thu, 19 May 2011 14:33:24 EST played new gods of mankind last friday I'd never sat down and started a RPG before, but that one was pretty fun. if anything, i was with a group that wasn't composed of a bunch of guys picking female characters and having them parade their "assets" as a tactic--that was a relief. we worked together and won, and it was kinda interesting, not as complicated as other ones i'd walked into where you really had to assess whether you wanted to have a rank of 4 in this vs. 3 in this or whatever. <BR> <BR> it was pretty fun, and i would... Wed, 18 May 2011 14:11:41 EST Hi! My name is Leigh Ann, and I've been fascinated with games since I was a little girl. I am a huge fan of fantasy RPGs, adventure games, and fantasy/historical RTSs. In about 3 weeks, I'll be graduating with a BFA in interactive design and game development, and then I hope to find a job as an environment artist working on the sort of games I'd like to play myself. ;) <BR> Unfortunately, that adds up to a whole lot of time spent in front of a computer screen, and I'm a lot less adventurous in re... Tue, 17 May 2011 11:57:37 EST where to find conventions online--help! Hey howdy there! <BR> <BR> I was wondering if you ladies could point me to some sites or collections of stuff online that mention where gamer, horror, sci-fi, fantasy, etc. conventions would be. This stuff seems to go from word-of-mouth, and many i haven't even heard of before. but they've gotta be found somewhere online, but if i don't know about them, i can't look them up. I mean, aside from just a general google-search, naturally. <BR> <BR> I'm just curious if you know better ways to ... Mon, 16 May 2011 15:05:11 EST Sweet Games to Make you Sweat!

Hey howdy there! <BR> <BR> I was semi-volunteered to help do publicity for a big Horror, Sci-fi, Fantasy, and Gamer convention on my college campus in January (semi because I wanted to help, and finally just said "what the hell" since nobody was working on it and we need to get cracking, and i had no clue what else I could help do). I remember publicity was a big issue the last time around because a lot of people who aren't devoted gamers and whatnot thought it sounded neat AFTER the event,... Sun, 24 Apr 2011 19:39:07 EST wii zumba just wondering if anyone else has zumba for the wii. i have been enjoying it and definitely working up a sweat - only thing is that it doesn't seem to register all the movements very well. not sure if i'm not wearing the belt correctly, or if it's just the limitations of the game, or my zumba abilities.... but i've been enjoying it, especially as variety... Sun, 24 Apr 2011 15:01:31 EST MMORPG addict Hi Gamers! <BR> <BR> So far I've gotten hooked into RuneScape, Wizard 101 and most recently Perfect World. I also like PC adventure games. Not a good hobby to have when you're trying to lose weight. Maybe if my laptop was powered by the treadmill, I could get some exercise & game away at the same time!

Tue, 5 Apr 2011 16:34:55 EST Hiya! Decided randomly this April 5th to get my damn act together, and that it would be cool to have a support group of people with common interests to do it with. I'm a 22 year old Canadian, currently living in Las Vegas with my husband. I'm a geek, a long time fan of console RPGs, but lately I've been into MMOs--LotRO in particular (Beldrieth/Llythne on the Arkenstone Server!) though I've played a wee bit of WoW and Guild Wars in the past. My other interests include reading (sci-fi and fantasy ma...

Plus it uses Unreal Tech so I know the game mechanics won't suck/are something I'm used to. <BR> Any opinions? How is the game? How many hours is it about? <BR> Is it cool or is it just stupid predictable? <BR> <BR> P.S. I'll be using the PS3 <BR> <em>38</em> Sun, 3 Apr 2011 03:46:44 EST HELLO Hello :) <BR> <BR> I am Kayleigh, I just joined.

Mon, 21 Mar 2011 09:41:26 EST Cata raids too easy wtf? Dunno if this is the right spot for non fitness/diet video game talk. <BR> During Wrath I had a friend who was a really good tank, and pvper... and well healer... and pretty much everything. He was awesome at whatever. I of course did the raids I liked, Ulduar and Naxx, and pretty much ignored the rest. He complained A LOT that it was too easy. <BR> With Cata he came back and was loving it... at least the first few weeks. Talking to him tonight and all he can complain about is "Whats the poin... Sun, 20 Mar 2011 23:47:33 EST Hello--newbie in every gamer way possible... Yo there peoples! <BR> <BR> I like games, but i've always been relatively old school of a sort (N64 and super nintendo--usually b/c i could play them alone all I wanted), but I've been talking again to people at my college's Gamer's Guild. I also assisted and filmed a lot of their ConJour 3 event (horror, sci-fi, fantasy convention with lots of authors, food, panels, the original Metropolis shown, steampunks, and LARPs galore) last weekend (what a way to start spring break--whew!). Became ...

Sun, 13 Feb 2011 20:34:51 EST I HATE exercise Ok, it may sound harsh, but I just need to be honest right now. I hate being out of breath. I hate being sweaty, I hate having to get up early, or stay up late, or schedule my time around it. I read these things about ppl loving going to the gym or struggling but then loving how they feel afterwards... I don't like any of it. I just feel tired and sore and gross after exercising which makes me dread doing it even more. I have steadily gained weight my whole life, especially for the past 10 y... Sat, 12 Feb 2011 08:35:58 EST Gamer girls! Hooray! I'm so happy this group is here! I actually stumbled on it accidentally while trying to get to 100 Spark Points today. <BR> Anyone else trying to 'level up' their SparkPoints? LOL! Fri, 11 Feb 2011 19:23:47 EST Whoot! Rocking the RP! I just joined Spark People and decided to search for a team I can actually enjoy talking to. Well, I just hit the jackpot! I am one of the least coordinated ppl you will ever meet when it comes to sports, but my fingers are quite dandy when playing an RPG. I am psyched to be part of your team! Fri, 11 Feb 2011 13:23:37 EST Hi folks! I just signed up for this sparkpeople thing yesterday, and I'm so excited about it, what an inspirational & motivational site! This group seems like a good fit for me, I'm a girl gamer, I play Lotro (Lord of the Rings Online), but I also play the Sims 3 once in a while. My goal is be more physically active and healthy (and loose a bit of weight in the process) and yet still have time for gaming. Is this possible? I'm not sure, but I'm gonna try! :) Wed, 9 Feb 2011 17:14:15 EST PS3 Duel of the Planeswalker Played the demo and considering buying the game. I love MtG but only get to play once or twice a month with my brother. I'm really not up for playing at stores - I'm 42 and don't want to be ridiculed by the much younger, much better players. <BR> <BR> Have any of you played the PS3 game? Wed, 2 Feb 2011 16:58:44 EST LARP Ladies? Hey Ladies, <BR> <BR> I like some gamers take that extreem step and LARP. One of my good friends from the Larp just had a fire in her home and lost all her costuming. I was wondering if anyone knew of a good place to pick up some cheep larp gear. I found her a zip up bodice at good will and a skirt, but we can't find any long johns or boots and we don't know what to do about a cloak. I've made her a boffer sword. So we're looking for those last pieces. She plays a gypsy so they don't need t... Sat, 22 Jan 2011 22:49:04 EST Hooray! A SparkTeam I can get behind! Hi everyone! <BR> <BR> I am sorta new to SparkPeople. I lost a bunch of weight a couple years ago, but it has returned with a vengeance, so I'm back on the diet wagon. <BR> <BR> Of course I was automatically signed up to a number of SparkTeams, but as a girl gamer and game designer this is the only one I found that really spoke to me! <BR> <BR> So hello there! Wish me luck, cause with about 30 lbs to lose, I need it! Mon, 17 Jan 2011 14:45:37 EST Hello Fellow Gamer Girls I like RPGs, my first PS2 games were FFX and Kingdom Hearts. They were also the first games I beat all by myself (I was so dang proud). Currently, I have become an Xboxer and am playing Fallout 3 and Red Dead Redemption. <BR> <BR> In college, I have gained 30 pounds. Ick.

If so how do you like it and the games that are made for it? <BR> <BR> I have the wii... so at first i didn't think this really mattered since its basically the same. But i'm reconsidering since i use my PS more anyway. <BR> <BR> Just wanted to see what everyone's opinions were. Tue, 11 Jan 2011 15:03:31 EST Greetings Gamers Hello to everyone.

I was hoping to find some supportive groups for gamers and I was very happy to see an all girl gamer group. <BR> <BR> My name is Melinda, I'm 29 years old and an addicted gamer to World of Warcraft. The game has done a lot for me, a whole lot of good. But it's kept me in front of my machine, a lot.

I am 25 and live in Clearwater Fl. I joined Spark a while ago and just started using it again. I have been a gamer as long as I can remember (really). I am primarily into RPG's and SRPG's, not really too into MMOG's. <BR> <BR> I lost about 25 pounds a little over a year ago.

I am a lvl 1 psion, as is common for my race, but unlike most, I live in Sharn, the largest, most populated city on Khorvaire (please excuse my spelling, the Kalishtar schools aren't as good as the ones outside the ghetto). <BR> <BR> Since we Kalishtar are fairly isolated from the rest of the population, I've been eating poorly and spending most ...

My dad actually was the one that got me hooked on this, he started me out when I was little, so we have all of the systems that ever came out. I'm trying to lose a little bit of weight, and if I can do that playing games! great!!! Wed, 10 Nov 2010 18:18:17 EST kinect Did anyong picked up the kinect? We just got it this afternoon, it started with a regular trip to best buy for some new headphones for my husband and we walked out with the new, oh so pretty, black 360 with kinect bundle. We've played for a few hours already and I really enjoyed it. I find that the delay isn't has bad as i thought. Well with the game I tried so far <BR> <BR> I'm hoping to pick up Dance Masters from Konami and we picked up Your Shape. Really looking forward to see how gam... Sun, 7 Nov 2010 19:58:17 EST "Allo!" "Did you say hello?" "No, I said 'allo..." Hey there, I'm Sarah. A gamer geek girl with some pounds to loose. I primarily play tabletop games (currently in a Stargate game and prepping to run a Dresden Files game), though I do play some video and console games, and I used to LARP. <BR> <BR> Tried to diet and excercise on my own and was frustrated to discover I was gaining weight instead of losing it. So signed up for SparkPeople hoping to figure out what went wrong and actually lose the pounds! Sat, 23 Oct 2010 12:02:58 EST Guild Wars Hey everyone. I was just wondering if any of you gals that play Guild Wars would want to team up in-game some time? I've been playing GW since just about the time it came out. And I have all the expansions, though I've only finished Prophecies. I'm in a guild right now, but there's never anyone on when I'm there which is during the day on weekdays. And I don't have any friends that play (geez, I sound pitiful!) Anyway, my main character's name is Mistress Cheryl, I also play on Honey Ryderr (... Thu, 21 Oct 2010 16:50:12 EST Hello from Khelia Hi everyone - <BR> Khelia is my WOW-Avatar. I love this girl whom i play since nearly 5 years. <BR> I played my whole life - started as a kid with family-games, pen and papers, bought dozen of table-top-games while my daughter was a kind, and finally ended with Computer games (on a c 64 more than 20 years ago). Now im 57 and *not* the oldest to play online ;-) <BR> <BR> I love the idea of playing a character through my weight-loss process. <BR> I´ll take a look at EQ2 extended. Thanks for t...

I'm a 36 year old stay at home mom of 2 and I'm trying to get healthy. I'm also a gamer - board games, RPGs (online and tabletop), a few handhelds and the occasional computer game. I love to play, but I know that sitting in a chair too often is not a good thing. So I've recommitted myself to getting back into the Spark of things. So far, I'm not losing too much, but I'm trying and that's the important thing. Plus, I realized recently that I lost 30 pounds sinc...

Thu, 7 Oct 2010 15:00:40 EST Restarting Spark with a New 'Gamer Attitude' All of us gamer girls have it, right? That fire in our souls that keep us going through the gaming, the grinding, and the real life stuff. That is the attitude I intend to bring with me in my life and workouts every day now. <BR> <BR> My name is Ty and I have been a gamer for many, many years. Right now, my gaming encompasses Mine Craft, FF9, Arkham Horror, and a few other games, but mostly, I'm in school and trying to keep my relationship with my boyfriend alive through all the stress (part...

Hi there, <BR> <BR> I'm Susan, currently living in Holland and I've been a long-time gamer. <BR> <BR> My biggest favorites are serious board games that we play with friends and I play with my husband. <BR> <BR> I'm also a huge fan of the graphic adventure game and occasional Rpg. <BR> <BR> Susan Fri, 1 Oct 2010 03:04:09 EST Looking for Group for Weight Loss Daily! Hi there! I'm 23 and have been a gamer most of my life. I've played everything from table top to larp to video games and everything in between. I'm a single mom of one amazing little boy, a graphic artist, a writer, a thespian, a singer, and so many more things I can't count. <BR> <BR> I have a pretty big weight loss goal ahead of me... 110+ pounds, but I know I can do this! <BR> <BR> Currently, I own these systems: <BR> PC(obviously) <BR> XBOX 360 <BR> Gamecube <BR> PS2(I admit I don't w... Sun, 12 Sep 2010 16:57:37 EST Hi! I'm Jenn and I've been a gamer off and on as long as I can remember. <BR> <BR> D&D, old WOD, a lot of PS games, but got out of the gaming habit with the arrival of children. I got hooked back in when my husband started playing Dragon Age, and that's made me want to get out and play everything again. <BR> <BR> Thu, 9 Sep 2010 15:44:03 EST Introduction My name is Aly, I'm 23 and I live in Houston and I'm generally pretty bad at introductions. I never know what to say. <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> HEALTH/SPARK INFO (i.e. this is why I'm at this website.) <BR> I'm new to Spark - started four days ago, this is the first team I have joined - and new to healthy dieting/fitness routine thing, too. As a kid I never paid much attention to my health/weight at all until in my late teens, when I went through a phase of dangerous and unhealthy crash dieting... Mon, 23 Aug 2010 12:02:05 EST Hello! Popping in to say hi. I'm Cheri and Im just getting back into TCGs after several years. I like Magic and a few days ago my 6 year old kid decided he wanted to learn Pokemon, so I'm learning it to. I'm happy that he's taken an interest because I'll have someone else to play Magic with in a few years. <BR> <BR> I was pretty well hooked on WoW but ran out of time to play and couldn't see spending a monthly fee when I couldn't play very often. Guild Wars is fun but I find myself missing the fun ... Sun, 22 Aug 2010 10:55:25 EST hi <BR> Hi, My name is Erin, and I am not new to spark people, but Iam new to this team. I used to have a spark account, but I deleted it and started fresh, I had been slacking for too long, and decided I didn't deserve all those points I'd racked up if I was going to neglect everything. <BR> I like fresh starts I guess. <BR> I weight 300 pounds, I would like to weight somewhere around 150, but I;m going to stop when I feel and look the way I should. Sun, 22 Aug 2010 00:18:02 EST Hola. Hello all! I found this team through someone's page I had left a comment on and thought I should join. My name is Megan and I'm 23. So...yeah. Hello! Mon, 16 Aug 2010 16:02:39 EST PAX Are any of you ladies going to be attending PAX this year? This will be my first year, I'm super stoked! We should meet up if you're going! Fri, 13 Aug 2010 11:58:46 EST New to the Team Hi. I'm Kelley. I love D&D. I'm a player in a pencil and paper game that my husband DMs and I run a game for kids ages 9 to about 14 @ my library. That's a lot of fun. They love to roleplay and, of course, play with the minis and dice. <BR> <BR> I also love my PS3, though I tend to stick to cutesy games like Mini Ninjas and LittleBigPlanet (the biggest exception to that being Dragon Age, which I love). <BR> <BR> I'm a big fan of the more active Wii games like Wii Fit and Wii Sports, bu... Wed, 11 Aug 2010 11:28:47 EST This is awesome... Hi, I'm new... to this team anyway. I just reset my account for the first time... *sigh*... <BR> <BR> Anyway, I'm Kris.

I've been on Sparkpeople for awhile but for some reason never thought to search for a gamers group. I live in Phoenix, AZ. I'm a pretty casual gamer, but I am a huge strategy board game fan. I could play them all the time if I had people to play with. Other than board games, I play D&D 3.5e, various 360 games(favorites: Fable 2, Oblivion, Dynasty Warriors Empires), and the Wii occasionally though mostly for puzzle games. I have in the past played WoW, Puzzle Pirates and CoH off a... Mon, 2 Aug 2010 12:21:39 EST Starcraft 2 Anyone tried the new Starcraft? <BR> <BR> My husband bought it for me last night and so far, a few mission in, the campaign is pretty good. I guess they put the effort in actually creating a story line. <BR> <BR> I'm playing the campaign on normal. I haven't played any strategy game in a very long time. I'm finding it quite easy so far, I'm hoping it will get harder. if not I'll just restart on hard. Mon, 2 Aug 2010 10:40:26 EST New Recruit! Hey'all! <BR> <BR> I'm Sadie.. the last thing I expected to find on a community based entirely around fitness and nutrition was the enormous number of geek teams.. let alone one catering to female gamers! So, needless to say, I had to join the ranks. Comfort in familiarity, and all that. I’m sure you understand. *Laughs* <BR> <BR> I’m a gamer from way back.. starting with my dad’s NES, and progressing through the consoles. Never found myself to be all that good at them though.. sad to say, ...

I play anything from any console or pc except for racing games and sports game. I don't see the point of sitting an entire night to play football or hockey on PS3 LOL I usually play with my husband and a friend we met on WOW a few years ago. I use to play WoW big time to a point where it consume my entire life. I decided to quit a little before the last expansion. I went back when the new expansion came ...

I am a total gamer girl and recovering WOW player. I enjoy my PS3 (currently hooked on Burnout Paradise) and can not wait for the release of StarCraft 3 next week!! <BR> <BR> Two weeks ago I had a come-to-god (or deity of your choice) moment with myself and decided I was tired of being fat and lazy and that I was going to finally get off my ass and do something about it. I joined SparkPeople, changed my eating ... Fri, 23 Jul 2010 16:37:16 EST I'm Di Hey! <BR> <BR> I'm Di. I am a huge NES fan...zelda, mario, excitebike...

Well I'm both new to the group and to sparkpeople, so adjusting to everything has definitely been interesting! <BR> <BR> I've been a gamer for ages and play pretty much anything that gets into my hands.

When I searched the term 'gamer' and this team popped up I knew I had found a good match :D So hi! My name is Kirstyn, I'm a month away from being 20yrs old, which is really terrifying, and I'm new to SparkPeople. <BR> <BR> I've probably been playing videogames since before I could read, which made certain games very confusing. Some of my first memories of gaming is trying to shoot stupid ducks and getting frustrated every time I got laughed at by a dog, to constantly replaying A Link to th... Tue, 13 Jul 2010 15:29:16 EST Casual Gamer Gal Looking For Group Hey everyone, <BR> <BR> I'm a casual gamer who's looking for a good weight loss group. <BR> <BR> I've lost 6 lbs so far. But I'm having trouble on Friday Night D&D and at the LARPs. But I'm excited there are other gamer gals floating around. we are such a rare species! <BR> <BR> -Alexa Mon, 5 Jul 2010 19:48:01 EST New to this Team Hello, everyone. It's nice to see that there are other gamer-girls here on Spark People. I knew you were out there and I'm glad to find ya. <em>213</em> Sat, 3 Jul 2010 01:59:40 EST Has anyone seen Texx30? I was MIA for about 6 months and when I came back Texx was gone...anyone know what happened to her? <BR> Thanks in advance! Thu, 24 Jun 2010 02:09:30 EST How long have you been on SP? Just a general discussion question: <BR> <BR> How long have you been active on SP? And what has been the highlight of your time here? <BR> <BR> I've been active 70 days today, and the best part has been the discovery of why my diets always fail. When I diet, I don't take in enough calories to meet my daily needs, which leads to inevitable failure. Having the nutrition tracker helped me spot that, and realize, that yes, sometimes there is room for another chocolate chip cookie at the end of ... Thu, 24 Jun 2010 00:19:51 EST Rhea-wa Nimade Level 1 Novice Salutations! <BR> <BR> I have tired of my humdrum life and decided to set forth on a journey to find peace, love and health while simultaneously making things far more interesting. But seeing as I am a novice I should probably not set my sights too high lest I find myself at the spirit healer. <BR> <BR> This week I will be traveling the vast Bone Desert. I have carefully planned my route to stop regularly at oases. My quest this week is to drink 10 glasses of water a day. My reward is $2 to... Mon, 21 Jun 2010 10:12:35 EST A challenger appears! Hello! <BR> <BR> Since I first picked up an SNES controller in my preschool days I have loved gaming. Unfortunately, I was stuck in a gameless household and only allowed to play the games my dad had already finished or wasn't interested in. This left me with Super Mario Bros, Link to the Past, Starfox, Spyro and Baldur's Gate (I, II and SoA). <BR> <BR> I finally started doing minimal amounts of tabletop gaming once I hit college, LARPed once, and played massive amounts of WoW. My boyfriend ... Mon, 21 Jun 2010 09:49:44 EST Hi! I'm new :) Hi everyone, I am new to this board and just wanted to say a little bit about myself. I think this team is great because I don't have any girl gamer friends right now and most my friends won't watch scary movies either. Anyway, my favorite games are silent hill series, fatal frame series, and rule of rose. I also like the old games like the donkey kong country series and the old mario series. I also like many of the wii games including wii fit plus and the singing games. I started playin... Sun, 20 Jun 2010 13:16:00 EST Yet another n00b Hey friends, <BR> It's difficult to find other girl gamers, so I'm thankful for this group! I'm married (2+ years) and working (deli in a grocery store), so I'm more of a casual gamer due to time restraints, but I enjoy my RPGs (Persona 3 and Disgaea 2 are on the "in the middle of playing list"), time-killers (Harvest Moon and Katamati Damacy), and the occasional fighting game (Soul Caliber)... <BR> In high school, I weighed over 200 pounds.

Makes me feel good :) Sat, 12 Jun 2010 19:41:28 EST Warhawk? After years of watching my bf play warhawk and being annoyed at how often he played i finally started playing myself. The only reason i hadn't done so earlier was because i didn't want to get addicted like he was... knowing i would love playing... <BR> <BR> Well now i'm hooked and was wondering if any of you girls also play? Fri, 11 Jun 2010 08:48:14 EST Hi Hey, <BR> I wanted to introduce myself. I am Erin, I live in SC. I am a solid, not flabby 207 lbs. I am ready to be thin again. I guess we are all doing this for a reason or 2. I emotional ate myself to this weight. The good times and the bad. (and bored eating is responsible too) Things have been great and in those and bad there's food. haha well, i am now getting back on the wagon and I hope to support you all in that too. Keep me posted on whats going on with you all. I am new to the site ...

Alas, while I was 'between engagements' as they say, I kind of let myself go and overindulged in sweets. <BR> <BR> This week I shall work on getting back into shape. Starting Monday, I will do upper body on MWF & lower body on TThSat. ... Fri, 4 Jun 2010 13:12:01 EST Just another wannabe loser In a good way. My main goal is to be healthier and more fit. My hobbies are sedentary, which doesn't help. But at least I have a solid foundation; I used to be in good shape (half a mile a day, 2x/day; that sort of thing). <BR> <BR> My gaming credentials are primarily tabletop. We won't talk about how long I've been gaming but I bought the DMG at WaldenBooks. <BR> <BR> I was in college before I met another woman who regularly gamed. Ahhh, those halcyon days with an all-female gaming group.... Tue, 1 Jun 2010 17:49:52 EST Heylo ^_^ Jeez, I didn't realize this team existed.
