I have decided to step down as team leader. I am rarely here anymore and I don't feel I am doing any "leading." If you would like to be added a a team leader in my place, contact one of the other team leaders or one of the Spark leaders. <BR> <BR> Thanks!

Tell us what made the difference! Sun, 24 Jun 2012 09:54:21 EST Intro to a Wally http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x26809x44450870 Well I have been a spark member since Jan. 8 2009, but I just started to actually use the site and take this seriously. I am doing my best to eat healthy and keep a regular exercise routine. <BR> For the past six years I worked the night shift and just recently switched to working a "normal" day job and am finding that keeping a regular schedule is much easier! This means no more excuses and it is time to lose this extra weight. <BR> <BR> <BR> <em>137</em> Wed, 5 Oct 2011 23:32:16 EST What did you do today to make yourself proud? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x26809x44162609 We have been together as a "team" for a while now. I know I have daily goals I try to accomplish - how about you? <BR> <BR> Today I am proud that I ran with Melissa. I had 30 minutes before a parent meeting so I used that time to walk the track another 30 minutes and make that time productive. I live 20 minutes away, so it would be unrealistic to drive home. So instead of checking emails, I walked. <em>312</em> <em>311</em> <BR> <BR> We ran 6.45 and I walked 1.65 miles.

Even though I joined the Spark site quite some time ago, I am just now getting really involved with reading the site. <BR> I joined Curves a month ago, and after just 24 workouts have seen an improvement.

I think I will start with what upsets me the most. I remember when I was 25 years old, and started Weight Watchers. Back then I weighed 225lbs...and I thought that was bad. I was 25 years old weighing 225lbs. Well now, 12 years later, at 37 years of age, my weight has topped the scale at 272. I want to go in a room and cry...did that. I want to eat more...done that.

I have flirted with the idea of using spark for a year or so. I've not done it. I am heavier and more lost than ever. The technical knowledge is there. I feel lost and friendless. I feel like I need someone to take my hand and lead me to where I need to go. Sad right? Ya I know. I've talked to my doc, my hubby, my friends. They are supportive in that way that isn't really helpful, not to mention know of them have ever met a piece of chocolate they couldn't turn down. So I'm here. I've ord... Sat, 10 Apr 2010 22:52:58 EST Hello :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x26809x33231129 Hi, I just recently joined and am hoping to lose weight. I use to weigh 170 pounds and have since gotten down to 146 pounds. (it was really tough) However, I am finding that it's been really hard to lose beyond that to my goal weight of 125 pounds. I think that having someone with the same kind of goals in mind as me will really motivate me. Basically, I am hoping for a buddy in this. <BR> In any case, let's all work hard!!

I'm also quite heavy for a runner, so I might like to drop a few pounds, but when compared to improving my cardio health it's not a prioritiy.

I recently lost 80 lbs in a year and have found 20 of those back on. I am looking for a place to experience others success and failures. I am also looking for a group to keep me honest and motivated. (someone to push me to still get out there even when it is COLD outside, like it tends to be in wisconsin). I am also a mom of 3. A 2, 4, and 6 year old if any one has any suggestions of groups that I should try I would be delighted. Thanks-Beth.

I have been part of other teams but just found this one. I thought this would be good for me because I am looking for some buddies and we would have something in common, being that we started the same week. I hope I can find someone to chat about the process we have gone through so far and what we still want to achieve or maybe even be a motivator. I look forward to being part of this team.

So far things have been going well, but I'm just getting around to joining and participating on some teams. Let me know what you want to know - check out my spark page - whatever - I'm happy to share what I've done! Sun, 12 Jul 2009 22:41:14 EST I'm back! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x26809x26772592 Although I signed up a while ago, i have not used the site, except for periodically skimming through articles ect. i feel i am at a crisis point, weighing more than i have ever waighed, and generally feeling horrible. I am looking to refocuas and make health a priority. I need to stop myself from wanting major quick fixes and focus on lifestyle changes that will help in the long, not short run. Looking for any words of encouragement from anyone who has had similar experience. thanks, <BR...
