Hi,, my name is Angela, I'm 56 years old and I live in the beautiful Annapolis Valley. I have a wonderful husband and two great kids who are grown and have given us five sweet grandkids. They finally all live close by. I have been battling with my weight for over 35 years now. I did manage to take off 55 pounds a few years ago with the support of my dearest best friend but put it all back on, plus. I'm not one to exercise but will try. I live a very busy life and don't seem to have much extra time for anything (I know, stop with the excuses). My best friend moved away so I don't have her to lean on this time so I'm hoping to get the support and motivation I need with you guys.

One day at a time!

Hi everyone!

I'm Sandra and I live in Western NB. I joined SP last year but didn't stick with it long. I've been back for almost 4 weeks and am looking forward to a different outcome this time around. Happy to be part of the East Coast team! emoticon

Hi, East Coasters,
Yes, I lost a lot of weight and felt great but it all went out the window when the arthritis kicked in hard. I am now ready to start again. Not quite as intensely maybe; but I'm starting.

Hi everyone! Glad to see some new faces again! Welcome to the East Coasters group!

@LadyBug - there are quite a few Saint Johners in the group, so if you're looking for a fitness buddy, you just have to ask on the Huddle Wall.

@KayLynn - A BlueNoser! :-D Welcome aboard, and I can tell you for sure there are a LOT of NS'ers on our team!

@Sandy - Another Freddy-Beacher! Sometimes I think I'm the only one from this fair city on the team, and then I remember there are so many more of us out there!! If you're looking for a local SparkFriend, please add me to your friends list, and we'll have to see about going for a coffee soon!

Spark on!

Hey All!

I'm from Fredericton and after many weight loss attempts, this seems to be the one that is sticking. I hope to make some new friends in the area in the process as well. I wish you all luck and strength on this not-always-easy journey!

Hi everyone! I'm Kaylynn. I'm 24 and from Digby, Nova Scotia but currently living in Windsor NS.
I've had a sparkpeople account for a while but have just started to use it religiously! I was diagnosed with diabetes in November which gave me a fantastic kickstart to wellness. Although I was reasonably in control of my eating, I didn't have the awareness and the energy to pursue any exercise goals. I didn't realize how bad I was, until I slowly started to feel better.

Now I'm constantly hoping this great change doesn't turn into a "streak" and is another one of those diet "moods" that have come and gone in my past. I'm looking forward to talking to you all!

Hi my name is Tracey and I live in Fredericton,NB. I joined SP about 3 months ago because, not only does it inspire me, it's free. lol
I work shifts and was diagnosed as a diabetic 2 years ago and did not do anything about it except feel sorry for myself. Easy to do. It's amazing the number of excuses a person can come up with. This year I finally decided to do something about it. So here I am.

It's finally all about "ME"

Hello! My name is Tara. I am a 32 year old wife and mother to five beautiful daughters aged (soon to be) 14, 7, 6, 4 and 3. I was a LPN in a nursing home for 10 years, but have recently decided to be a stay at home mom. I am thinking about homeschooling my girls starting in the fall. I am from St. Martins, NB. I absolutely love being by the bay. I joined Sparkpeople, and started calorie counting on April 26th, 2012. It was one of the best decisions ever! Although, I have not struggled with my weight for a long time, I have struggled since I've had my last 4 children. (So I guess for the last, say 3 years..) My last 4 babies came very quickly together..one born in may 2005, next in may 2006, then in dec 2007, and dec 2008. So I really didn't have time to lose between them and kept on an extra 10 lbs for each. After nursing my babies and having 3 in diapers at one point, plus working full time (on the 12 hr night shift) I was just too exhausted to even think about weight loss. At 5'3, I weighed 163 lbs. After leaving work, I've had time to think about myself and have decided to get healthy. Since I started here, I've lost 15 lbs (I'm currently at 148 lbs) and want to get somewhere between 122- 125lbs) I liked 122 (back in college) but who know what I will find right now. I am glad to have found this team, with people so close to home. I wish everybody well in their weight loss journey and in life in general.

Hello everyone. My name is Dodi and my husband and I moved to the Annapolis Valley in Nova Scotia in 2010 from BC. I have 4 grown children and realized that life is too short, so my husband and I decided to venture on to a new adventure and moved to Nova Scotia. The scariest part is that we had no jobs, no family or friends when we moved here, in fact we never even visited NS. Why then do you ask did we choose NS? Well we heard from a lot of people that the friendliest people in the world are in NS. So, we took the chance and here we are. Both of my husband and i are now employed and I find that it's time that I get back to taking care of myself. In 2003, I lost 96.6 lbs with Weight Watchers, but fell off the wagon when I reached my life time goal with them. I now have 80lbs to lose and well, here I am. So, hi. emoticon

To change your body you must change your mind.

Focus on how far you've come, not how far you have to go.

Hello Everybody :)
I'm really hoping that SparkPeople can become a source of inspiration for me. It seems so difficult to find an active and supportive SparkTeam!

I am a married 24 Year old female from The Valley, Nova Scotia. It's about time to overhaul a few things, get my life in order and start feeling good about my organization and steps towards improving my health!

Hi, My name is Ron, I live in Halifax, NS. I have been following the Spark program since September after 10 months of Weight Watchers. I just happened to be wandering around the Spark Teams and noticed this one yesterday.

I was born in Toronto but have lived in the Halifax most of my life. My goal is to get to a healthy weight and improve overall fitness. I am dedicated to both and have lost a total of 70lbs between the two different diets.I have recently joined Goodlife fitness as my fitness goals were not being met due to cold weather.

I look forward to hearing from fellow Maritimers and glad to be part of this group!

Hey Im from Halifax, Nova Scotia. I'm 24 and Im ready to get back on this weight loss lifestyle changing bus.I've only been back on Sparkpeople after a 3-4 year hiatus, for 4 days now. And motivation is high and I'm ready to go. I forgot the energy it gives you to do something good for you body. I'm looking for some localish people to help keep me motivated and to share this weight loss experience with. Good Luck to everyone.

Hi! I'm a 34 yr old mother of two (15 and 12) living in Corner Brook NL. I've been at sparkpeople a couple of years ago and got down to 160 lbs but then I quit smoking. Good for the health...sooo NOT good for the weight. So now I'm back at it again! I'm so looking forward to getting some pounds off and looking and feeling better!

Hi Lise, and welcome to the Canadian East Coasters Team! There are a few things that we've been doing to help us all along, the top 2 being the Daily Check-In thread and the Weekend Challenges thread. Pop over to the Daily Check-In and let us know how you're doing on a daily (or as daily as you can manage), and we'll be there to cheer you on! The Weekend Challenges are something new since February, and the challenge changes every weekend.

Welcome to a fellow New Brunswicker, Lise!

Hello
My name is Lise. I am a 67 yo retired teacher. I have been struggling with weight most of my life and I have enough. Two weeks ago, I joined TOPS (a support group) and I lost 6 pounds the first week. I was very exited and the 2 following days, I binged.
I decided to go back with SPARK so I can have support every day and the use of the tools help me to make sure I know what goes in my mouth.
I want to be a winner
lise

Oh and I am in New brunswick

Welcome Lesa and Carrie! SparkPeople really is an awesome site, and this team is quite active at times!

I invite you to visit the message thread called "Daily Check-In", and post to it regularly. There are quite a few of us who catch up on each other through this thread!

Personally, I love seeing people from NB signing up, since that's where I am as well.

Hope to see you at the Daily Check-In!

Hi all!!
I'm from Grand Falls, New Brunswick. I'm a mother of two and am currently on maternity leave and returning to work at the end of August. I am a high school teacher.

I've been with SP since 2007 but I've been serious with this website since December. I am on this site EVERYDAY along with FACEBOOK!

Getting to my goal weight is a SLOW process for me. I've been trying to lose weight since 2003...I lose and get to 160 and get back up ....This time I want to succeed even if it take a long time....I want to have a healthy BMI and be an example for my kids.

HEY! I grew up in Miramichi too...Chatham gal me though...I now live in Campbellton NB
I also lived in Scotland for 6 & 1/2 years but came back here when my hubby and I retired.
Just love the Maritimes and we went camping all across Canada to Vancouver Island last summer...only province we have not seen yet is Newfoundland/Labrador so we are going there this summer camping! Cannot wait! hear NFLD is beautiful...even if it rains!

just joined SparkPeople in April this year but started my journey in Feb 2010 and so far have lost 85 Lbs...first time in my 62 yrs of life that I have ever kept my weight going down and NOT gained it ( and more! ) back...
I joined this site when I heard about it from another Sparker who was chatting on the CBC site; Live Right Now of which I am also a member.

I am finding that sites like these keep me on track and motivated to keep this weight off! for good this time so I can feel good and healthy and able to do things I could not do 85 lbs ago!

Hey everyone,

My name is Wanda and I joined SP a few years ago. I love SP and did really well for a while but I went back to University after 20 years and then had some health problems that slowed me down for a while. I'm finished school now and working and my health is getting better and it seems the right time to come back. I've gained back all of the weight that I lost (and more) so I have a lot of work to do but the East Coasters has always been a great group and I figure this is a good place to start.

I hope to be talking to all of you!

Hi everyone,

I have been on SP for 3 years but just getting back into being more active on the site and hopefully more active period. I am originally from Montreal. I lived 1 year in Canada's arctic, then 25 years in Ontario, 23 of these in Stittsville (Ottawa area) and we moved to Nova Scotia in July 2010. We were planning to wait until retirement to move to the maritimes, but a job offer for my husband was too good to ignore. We have also been coming east to Caissie Cape near Shediac NB for the last 26 years where we have a cottage.
I'm so glad to be here.
Thanks for this team.

Hello everyone, Originally from Ontario, I have called Saint John, NB my home for 16 years now, and would never leave!
I've recently returned to SP after being away for over two years, and I'm relly enjoying using the tools, and talking with new friends.
Have a great week end!!

Hi everyone! My name is Laurie and I'm from PEI. We just recently moved back to PEI after living in Nova Scotia for quite a few years.

I joined Spark this week to help keep my motivation up and get some encouragement. I haven't been able to lose the baby weight after giving birth to my daughter 2 years ago. My downfalls are snacking and eating healthy. I don't mind exercising but I don't do it enough. I recently completed a Learn to Run 5K program and I am now training to run 10K.

I look forward to this journey we are all on together!

Hi - My name is Sandy and I'm currently residing in Pitt Meadows BC having moved out here from Saint John NB 9+ years ago. I may live here but I miss the Maritimes and it is special to me that you all have created your own team - I am very proud to be a member.
I'm really slow getting started because there is so much to discover in this site and I'm having a great time doing just that. Monday will be my day one!!!
