Hi. I am a 36 year old wife and mother of a 6 year old blue eyed little lady. When I got pregnant, I was already overweight, but then I ballooned up to the heaviest I have ever been...and at time of her birth I was 300 pounds. I went down to 260 during the following year or so and then for the past few years, I held steady at the 240 range. For the past few months, I have been working on my health and I am now in the 220 range and 6 pounds away from my initial weight loss goal. This will be something that I struggle with through life, but this site really helps.

Hello!

Isn't this site wonderful? So many motivational strategies and inspiration just lurking about! But now it's up to ourselves to pull through.

I'm 34 and looking to lose about 15 lbs which might actually put me in the correct BMI category for the first time since I was a teenager.

Let's do this!

Hi, I'm new to Spark people & I'm really appreciating all the site & apps have to offer. I'm 37, married no kids. I'm at the top of my where I'm comfortable with my weight at 146 lbs. Planning to have kids in the near future & I don't want to let 'baby weight' gain stick around, so I'm trying to be proactive. I've always been active & enjoy physical activity. My biggest fall down is probably getting enough activity & of course being more conscientious of what I eat & how much I eat. The trackers should really help me out there.

Looking forward to seeing you & working with you online to reach our healthy goals!

Hi all!!! My name is Jess and I'm a busy momma of 2 little boys( 4 and 1(he will be 2 on valentines day) ). I just turned 30 on Oct 15th and I'm excited to see what the 30's have in store for me. Upon having baby number 2 I weighed 205 and that wasn't so great on my 5'4 frame. It made just daily living hard. I had been on acid reflux medication and wore my maternity clothes still from the first kiddo (whom I never lost any of the baby weight went in to have him at 199 and stayed that way till the month before having baby number two.) I felt horrible about my self and wasn't the mom or wife i wanted to be. So when i had little guy number 2 i picked up the c25k app and never looked back. i currently have lost 70pounds due to running and slowly adapting a "clean eating" diet. I have about 21.5 pounds I'd like to lose and love to see some muscle around my mid section.(I'm well aware i may not have a visible 6 pack due to having kiddos but I'd definitely like to build up those muscles.) I'm excited and nervous about losing those last pounds, I've never in my life in a maintain mode it's always been lose weight. First time for everything right!? :-D

Hi. My name is Busara. I have tried to lose some extra weight I have gained and over the years it has gone from 5 pounds over my ideal weight ( not obese) to now 20 pounds overweight (and some 30 pounds over my ideal weight). I am determined to do it this time, to shed the excess weight and stop feeling like my heart will stop every time i go up a flight if stairs. I am hoping that holding myself accountable and putting it down on paper (or screen) will help me stay motivated and do the right thing for me.
I am looking forward to learning and growing with you guys on the team..

Hi all,

I'm a nurse and a mother of a 16 year old. I used sparkpeople to lose about 25 pounds so far. (I was scared to get on the scale in the beginning so I'm honestly not sure what I started out at). My goal is to lose another 17 pounds by this fall. I just passed my Navy physical readiness and I am so happy! Now that I've passed and dropped some of the weight I want to focus on losing the last bit of my flubber and toning up. I also want to run 1.5 miles in 13:45 min, do 78 sit ups and 50 really good push ups. My goal is to get to 142 pounds, I'm 5 ft 2. Currently at 159 lbs.

If you didn't make it today, keep trying! You get used to trying and eventually you will do it :)

Hi! I'm a mom of 4 (10, 8, 5, 3) 5'7 and a "born again sparker" ;) I used sparkpeople last year and went from 153 to 131 in a couple months. I intended to get to 125 (my highschool weight!:) but stopped using sp and ended up gaining 7 lb back over the year! Back at it and hoping to kick those final lbs!

Hi, I'm not sure if I'm posting this correctly but my name is Laurie and I'm from California. My starting weight was 144 and from changing my diet (cutting out grains, sugar and processed foods) I've lost 12 pounds so far. I'd like to start working out and drinking more water and lose more fat. It's always been my dream to get my arms and butt in phenomenal shape and I've never been motivated enough to do it. I usually get to the point I'm at now and say "eh, that's good enough" but I never feel my best! Now that I'm in my mid thirties my butt is starting to get really square and flat and my arms have a little cellulite! I don't like it and it's time to change it! Going to my first weight lifting class tonight...I truly believe that together we can do this!!!!

Hello, my name is Carolin. I'm 35 and turning 36 this summer. My kids are grown and it's time to focus on me. I've always been of average weight 120-125. Always lived a pretty active life. Two years ago I moved across the country and from week one in my new state I started gaining weight. Not sure why, my habits stayed the same. In the first 90 Days I gained 10 pounds and two years later I'm weighing in at 146-148lbs. My goal is to return to my 120-125 average weight and maintain it. To help me reach my goal I've started drinking more water and going strong the last 2 days with a cardio workout. I weighed myself this morning and I'm already down a pound. Yay !!

Good luck

Hey everyone! I'm Kristen, I'm 32 and live in Montana. I'm married with two kiddos. I joined SP to make some healthy changes in my life and to keep them up. My first goal is to lose 25 lbs by April. After that, I think I'll try for some more. Motivation to keep going is where I struggle. I could use some friends to help!

Keep up the good work, Sparkers!

Hey Everyone. My name is Patricia. I need to lose more than 20 pounds but have set my goal at 20 pounds so I won't feel so overwhelmed and become discouraged to stop. I am easily to become uninterested in losing weight especially when I am not seeing results as I think I should. I joined SparkPeople yesterday and hope I can stay with it.I wish you all the best of luck.

Hi :) Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Ula and I'm 31. I want to lose 20 lbs, at least. But the most important for me is to chane my lifestyle. I used to be very active, but after I've changed my job (now I spend time at work mostly in front of a computer, unfortunately), I began to gain weight and bacame lazy. Painful but true... Now it's time to do something with it. I enjoy exercising and eating healthy, but I usually struggle with motivation. That's why I'm here. I hope we can help each other to reach our goals :) God luck everyone!

The only way to finish your workout is to start...

I have hunger issues as well. I fight it best when I only have healthy food choices around the house and I also refuse to eat after 8 pm anymore. In the past I have done this by keeping busy with hobbies and by putting $20 in an envelope every payday as a reward for keeping my healthy and portion controlled diet. If I have one mess up day, I do not get the extra twenty to spend later. The money I use when I get to my weight goals to buy something new to wear. Clothes are difficult for me to buy on my tight budget, and this motivates me. I am starting over again in my journey. I got married and had a second child and put 20 pounds back on.

~Have a wonderful day~

Hi everyone! I'm a 30-year-old guy living in California, and lost about 20-25 pounds through SparkPeople about a year ago. After that, I've been in a big plateau of both weight and motivation. I recently started getting my butt back to the gym, doing mostly weight training because that's what keeps me excited about it, and starting to track my foods again. Any suggestions for keeping that motivation going, especially regarding hunger? I get bored and "snacky" all the time, especially in the evenings. Looking forward to getting back into it and making more progress!

Hang in there, one day at a time...

I've been off and on sparkpeople but I'm back. I'm aiming at losing 20 lbs from this point. Breaking down my goals to take them bit by bit.My personal target is Atleast 140lbs for now but sparkpeople suggest 126 for my age and height, that's a tall one though but I'll take it one day at a time. Lost 8 pounds like in 3 months, I'm glad and taking it slow.

Hello,
I`m Abby. Mom to 3 wonderful kids -7,5 and 3. I`m looking to lose 16 pounds or more to get in the healthy weight for my height. I was a skinny kid, had kids and bam! I got hit all over by fat. I`m also hypothyroid..one of my excuse but no more. So far I have lost almost 6lbs in the last month with diet control and exercising on my exercise machine. I plan to lose all the weight this way. I`m doing it slowly this time.

Hello! My name is Tina, I'm 39 and weighed in at the Dr's office today at 140. Last week when I was there it was 136. I want to get down to somewhere in the 115-120 range and be fit enough to run a marathon Spring 2015.

I also got back unpleasant cholesterol numbers, so now I have more than just vanity driving my goals. I am here to shape up and get healthy!

- Tina

Hello Everyone!

My name is Marlena. I am 37 years old, divorced mother looking to lose around 15 pounds of fat. I am 5'1" and currently weight 132; I wear a size 4-6 but desperately want to lose the fat on my stomach and thighs. I know I need to workout more but I just don't have the time to do it. My children are 14 and 11 and they keep my on my toes. I love being active as that puts me in a happy mood. I work in my children's school so I'm very blessed to see them everyday.

I live in southwestern NY if anyone is in the area; I'd love to workout together. :)

Hello!

My name is Erin and I've been casually using Spark for years. Although I've learned a lot about what I should do, I haven't put too much of it into practice. I'd love to lose 15 pounds, then reevaluate my weight goal from there, but I also love beer and wine and being lazy! I did run and finish a half marathon in October and I don't want to lose what I built up while training to finish that race!

I'm also currently living in Japan, so if anyone else out there is too, I'd love to talk recipes and workouts (since familiar ingredients can be hard to find and gym costs are high).

Hello Everyone! My name is Sharon, I am 32 years old. I need to go from 214lbs to 155lbs. I am very active with my two beautiful daughters who I keep active. I have not mastered eating healthy. I have had the luxury of eating whatever I would like and never gaining a pound until I turned 30. I have to do a lot of workouts at home due to my girls crazy sports and club schedules. I have an elliptical and workout videos. I hope this helps me with staying motivate and on task.

Hi Everyone,

I am thirty eight and I have been trying to lose 20 lbs. For the last 2 years. I finally hit the point to where it became less about the scale and more about the definition of my body. However, I was in a bad car accident several weeks ago. I haven't been able to do anything. With that being said, someone else has been cooking for me. I love my husband but he is not on the bandwagon of healthy eating. Needless to say I have had a few more pounds creep back. There isn't much I could do about it then. Still not a lot I can do now but, I can cook and walk. Thats what I am going to do. I may not have lost the 20 lbs I wanted to but I looked and felt good. Right now, I don't feel good, probably from eating crap and I don't look good. This week is a new week, I am going to log my food and walk!

When I recover, I am a busy mom of 2 boys, I work for the Ymca and the school the boys attend. I volunteer a lot to anyone and everything. I like to stay busy and active, it makes me feel good. I am fortunate to have a man who loves me for me, we have been married for 14 years. He has seen the fat me (heaviest 261), the ugly me and the me that I have found and love. I need to go back to that girl, she was happier. I didn't have much choice in the matter of these last several weeks, but I am recovering and seeing improvement!

To a better life!

Well I am turning 31 in 3 weeks time and I started loosing weight 6 weeks ago and 5lbs down so far. Over the past 7 years I have repeatedly gained and lost 2 stone- I want to kick those unwanted pounds for the long haul!

I did the dukan diet a few years ago and it really worked from the first day which made the high restrictions managable.

This time around I want to kick start my weigtht loose with 3 weeks of Dukan (started on Saturday) and then into a low carb diet- which hopefully will be easier coming form 3 weeks of virtually no carbs!

However its not going as well as it has done previously for me. Previously by this point I would be -3-5lbs down and i'm just -0.2lb down which is really disheartening. I know I am not eating anything wrong and I have been drinking plenty of water and doing my cardio!

I am hoping this will pick up and I can have the start I wanted and that my dedication pays off!

Ps I put my weight in as Stones and lbs and for some reason my ticker says kgs- its not kgs!!!

Hi!
I started my original journey in 2009 and lost around 60 pounds before by my 30 birthday. Knew I wasn't done but was happy with where I was. Sort of worked at getting the rest of the weight off, but managed to do no more than maintain my original loss. Now I need to get the last 15 or so pounds off. :) Going into week 2 and feeling pretty good. I am a little bit concerned because my husband and I are taking our girls on vacation soon.. to Hershey PA. Chocolate Central... Uh-oh... I probably wont track my eating on vacation but am hoping to be mindful and controlled.

Hi everybody,
A desk job, too many snacks and pregnancy added an unwelcome 20 lbs! The real struggle for me will be eating well and avoiding mindless snacking. I've never used a program like this and I look forward to holding myself accountable. Thanks! emoticon

Hello -- I'll be 33 this September, no kids (yet), and at the end of a long weight loss journey. I started in Jan. 2011 at 179 and thought I'd go down to 135. Ups and downs, gaining and losing, over the last couple years, and I'm down to 140 now. I have revised my estimate of my goal weight to 125-130 now (125 to lose, but I'm figuring 130 by the time I tone up since muscle weighs more). I've been fluctuating again, mostly because I'm lazy and like to eat, no surprise there. My girlfriend is getting married in October and wants me to wear a short strapless dress as a bridesmaid. So I'd like to at least get to 130 by then if possible! It may not be, because I have two months. I exercised pretty well the beginning of the summer, but then hurt my ankle running a week ago, so didn't exercise last week. Hoping to get back moving this week, if not running. I think my stride is to blame; this is the third time since November. So long story short, I have about 10-15 pounds to go and whatever I can lose by October will be fantastic. I'd love to have to take my dress in! emoticon

Hello! I am 30(something) 39 in a couple of months. I have a 9 year old son and 5 year old daughter about to start kindergarten. I used Spark about 4 years ago and lost the baby weight but with asthma and respiratory issues (and comfort eating when I felt to yuck to go to the gym) I have put on about 20 lbs in the last couple of years. My health issues are stabilized and do zumba regularly. The kids go to school in 6 weeks and would love to lose 12 lbs which seems very doable. So here I go! emoticon

Hello, I have heard of spark people for the last 5 years and got introduced by me by an in-law. I ended up with a new sign on because of trying to find healthy meals for my husband with acid reflux disease and he has officially been limited to what he can eat. So that means I have to change the family ideas on what to eat. When looking in a brochure that I rec'd it sent me to sparks home page. I thought cool. I do need to lose about 20 lbs. It seems I haven't gotten rid of my 5 months belly from 5 years ago. So with this change in my husbands lifestyle so has to be mine. New trick with him is going walking together.

Hello,

I've been regularly using Sparks for a year and I've lost 80lbs. But in the last 3 months, things have been difficult and the weight has slowly creeped back up - 10lbs. I know in part is because I'm bored with my menus and the other part is no emotional eating. The more frustrated I get with the scale - the more I eat when I get stressed. This has got to stop and I need to stay focused. I never used the team pages before but I need to get myself back on track and I know that many successes have used the boards. So, I'm setting a goal to be on this team at least 3 times a week: to share, to read what you all are doing and to get my groove back. I've never been this close before and I need to do this.

Looking forward to learning about you all.

Taking it one step at a time.

Hello. I'm at my highest weight since pregnancy and I'm ready to do something about it. I just weighed in at 125lbs and I'm 5'1". The weight isn't what bothers me though nor was it the "last straw" for me. The "last straw" is that I'm tired of feeling tired and having this very large bulge in my mid-section. I look like I'm pregnant and as a mommy to a 19-month-old, I'm really struggling. So I'm going to start today and see what progress I can make. I've been making a lot of poor food choices and so that needs to change now, too. Looking forward to this journey!

~Michelle~

Hello! I am starting over after 3 weeks completely off my plan. I started Jan 1, 2013 at 144lbs...by March 1 I was down 10lbs and by May I was down to 129. During the month of May we had family in town for a visit, went on a trip to New Orleans with my husband and then had a week of just trying to get back to "normal". So here it is 3 weeks later and I am up 5 lbs and completely off track!! I am ready to get started again. I actually reset my goals and started my plan all over using my new starting weight as 135 and new goal as 120. I will happy though just to get these 5 lbs back off!! What a difference it makes!

Hi I am 5'6" and 178. Looking to get down to 145. I am at a point where I need to change the unhealthy pattern in my life. I am the mom of 3 kids and want them to see me working to be healthy and enjoying life. I will turn 40 on Aug 31 and have decided to train for a sprint triathlon. I am a water aerobics instructor but my main job is sitting at a desk most of the day. I am looking for support and encouragement to keep my eye on the prize of finishing a triathlon.

Hello there! I'm 5'3 and currently 135 pounds. I'd like to be down to 120 maybe less! it sounds very daunting at the moment, but I'd love to buddy up with someone to talk about challenges,food changes, and getting to the gym on time! I feel like I haven't had a whole lot of support from other people in life regarding weight loss and support. Sometimes it's hard to get the "right" sort of encouragement. One that isn't about punishment or feeling bad, but rewarding the effort no matter the outcome. Personally I'm tired of feeling a little uncomfortable about my body and I'd like to change that without driving myself crazy! Let me know if you want to buddy up! I'm all ears!!!

I have just recently overcome addiction and put on 15 to 20 extra pounds in the process. I've been extremely fortunate to have this be the first time I have struggled with my weight. However it doesnt make it any less difficult especially since after turning 30 my metabolism went south real quick. I want to loose about 23 pounds and get down to 130. I realize how I feel is more important than what the scale says, but this time the scale coincides with how I feel and thats lousy. So! Congratulations to everyone out there striving forward and making better choices I'll be right here with ya
