Hello, all! I'm Isabella. I'm 20 years old and I have about 100-120 pounds to lose. I am looking for a group of people that I can share my successes and struggles with throughout this journey. Feel free to add me as I am new to Spark People and don't know many people. :)

Welcome, DeeDee.
This is a really friendly group and some of the topics are very chatty. I usually do the monthly challenges (under the Biggest Loser section) and the February challenge has been a lot of fun.
Your 40th birthday weekend sounds like it will be fun.

I'm cheering for you to have great success getting those blood sugar numbers under control by a healthier eating-pattern and lifestyle changes. It's a big job, but you sound like you have the right mindset to succeed.

You can Make It Happen!

Hi, I am new to the team not so much sp. Like many of you I have been on and off the site. But now I am back and want to stick with it this time. I live in Montana, so we are enjoying a beautiful Loooong winter. Sometimes feels to long! I can not wait for the snow and ice (mostly ice) to be gone so I can go and enjoy walks in the sunshine. I am a stay at home mom with a 13 year old step daughter.

I just started back into P90x this week and am finely excepting the reality that I am a diabetic. That I must get my body under control before it's to late. March 24th I will be turning 40! That sounds so weird to say but I am actually pretty excited about it. A whole new decade God is gifting me with, what will I do with this gift? That part is up to me! Just like each new day is a gift, do I just choose to wast it or use it for the greater good? The day before my birthday I and my family are going to Seattle to do the Big Climb, I nervous excited. It's for a great cause and what a challenge to bring in my 40th with!. Nice to meet you all. Sorry did not know I had so much to say.

SW 260 the ugly truth.


Have a God filled Day!!!

Hi everyone
I'm been on spark people since 2009 on and off but mostly off. I have made a promise to myself on Dec 29 2013 that I am going to take baby steps this time towards becoming healthy. So far the month of January i have changed my eating habits and I lost 19 lbs. I am very excited. I know this is going to be a hard and long journey and I am happy I found this team page.

Hi....I'm new to this team but have been a part of SparkPeople for awhile. I fell off of the wagon back in 2012 and I'm back and ready to get my life back. My name is Kristy, I'm a wife and mom and I'm ready to lose over 100 pounds. I'm looking forward to making new friends with similar goals and I will be here until I hit my goal!!

Hi, I'm Marti and I'm from mid-Michigan where it is currently snowing like crazy.

I just joined SparkPeople this week and so far, I really like everything I'm finding. It seems I discover something new every day.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone.

Hi my name is Jennifer, I am 42 and a stay at home wife and mother. I have 2 daughters one 16 and one 18. I need to lose 100+ lbs so hope i have found the right place. I love to crochet in my spare time. I do the walking leslie sansone tapes and walk on the treadmill for my workouts. Not much to me, i lead a very simple life but i am glad to be here, thought being around those with the same goals and age might inspire me. Thank you for having me.

Hello....I am back. I was on SP years ago (different name) and lost 60 lbs, not close to what I had to lose. However, since then...I have strayed and fallen off the wagon. I gained all of that 60 lbs back. I am 44, married, 2 grown kids and 1 grand-daughter. In the past 3 yrs, I have had 3 surgeries on my spine and am feeling lost since then. I am stuck with a spinal cord injury that really has affected my life. But, I have to get my body in control and stop gaining weight. I hope to make friends, get support and also give.

I am all in...one day at a time. I CAN DO IT!

Hello, Everyone!

My name is Kelly and I am new here on SparkPeople. I have a long way to go until I hit my final goal weight, but I am looking forward to getting to know you all and celebrate our small successes along the way. I am 25 years old, married (my hubby is now a sparker, too!), and hoping to start a family soon. I'm here to get myself in shape so that I can live a long, happy and healthy life with my family.

Hi, All. I'm not technically "new" to the group, but I'm becoming active on SparkPeople again. I'm down 76.1 pounds so far, with 88.9 to go (for a total of 165 lost). Excited to be a part of a group full of like-minded people who share similar issues/concerns!

Hi there, I am Lisa, I have already lost 23.6 pounds, have another 103 to 128 pounds to go, but who is counting lol! I don't want to get down to my goal weight and gain it all beck, I will be a daily Spark user for the rest of my life. I walk every other day and move non stop for an hour the other day's, normally that includes squats, crunches, calf raises and "dancing" to music....my sad version of aerobics, lol! I am VERY competitive with myself, to a fault at times. For example Saturday I went for a 4 mile walk, felt GOOD so I turned it into a 6 mile walk normally, that would be ok, but long story short I broke a blister I didn't know I was getting, forcing me to take Sunday and today off. Tried to get back yesterday, walked 4 miles but now it is getting infected. Tomorrow is another day. I am LUCKY that I have always been a walker so unless I am mean to my feet I can walk for long periods of time. I am taking this one day at a time and am in this for the long haul.

Remember no matter where you go, there you are!!!

Hi My name is Boni and I am over 100 pounds overweight and although I have in the past lose 100 pounds at age 17-18 and 25-26 once again, I have not had more then 40 pounds fall off since I was in my 40's. I am now 64 with many health issues arthritis, diabetes, and a few other things, but I feel I still can do this taking it slower maybe but getting back to where I feel like I can do this. I go to the Dr. tomorrow and am setting goals today. I will check with him on how much exercise I can do. I plan to start tracking daily what I eat oz, by oz...that seems very key for me. I live on our farm and can hardly bend over to work and do the things I have always loved doing in the yard, garden, field, etc. So by next summer just maybe...
I weigh less then I did at the beginning of the year by about 13 pounds but another year has gone by and no real progress. I am excited to join the team and pray this time it works for all of us. Boni

If the Lord brings you to it He will take you through it....

Hi everyone. I'm Liz from SW Michigan. I started out at 320 and have already lost 83 lbs, but still have 92 to go to get to my goal weight. I might eventually lose 10-20 more after I reach that goal, but don't really know if my bone structure is large or medium at this point, so just want to reach my high end for normal weight for my height, until I know further what I'll look like. Don't want to look anorexic. I want to look fit. I feel great now, but I can't wait to feel better!!

It's all about baby steps!

Hi everyone! My name is Melissa. I've been in a member for quite a while....but I think now is the time that I get off my ever widening rear and get to work. I chose this year to join the Miss. Plus America organization. I have received my local title and before I compete in state in March; I need to do what I will be advocating. Being plus/curvy is ok as long as you are healthy. I know that I will need the help of all the sparkies I can get

Hi, I have been with Spark a few months now. I am 45, single mom of a 22 year old son, teacher, and have over 100 pounds to lose. I saw a picture of myself at my 45th birthday and it motivated me to get serious. Work and family life drain me. I really need some support in this journey and some tough love when I am not on target. I am hoping this group will provide that.

Hi, my name is Doris. I am not new to Spark but have been away for 5 years. Trying to restart my life after becoming a widow last year. I have put everyone first in my life and it is now time to take care of me. No more excuses. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired.

Hello, I'm Celeste. I'm new to the team, but not to Spark. I was doing so well when I first joined but then fell off hard. So now I'm back after forgiving myself for regaining the weight I had once lost, because I'm human and I will make mistakes. So for the last 3 months I've been doing great and feeling great. So here's to getting healthy and staying healthy!

Hi everyone, I'm new at this so be patient with me. I will be turning 40 in a couple of weeks and I have been battling my weight for years and years. I am currently at 294 lbs and would like to lose at least 100 lbs in the next year. I need all the encouragement and suggestions that you want to give me because my will power comes and goes and I eventually find myself giving up. I feel like
I have been on a diet my entire life and I am sick and tired of dieting. So any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi everyone! Greetings from Georgia! I'm 43 with 3 crazy teenagers and a supportive partner. I've got 140 lbs to lose and have successfully lost 11 lbs so far. I am so thankful for Spark People! It has helped tremendously to track my food and get support from others on the same journey.

About myself- I love the outdoors. My weight has kept me from doing a lot of things that I used to be very active in. My first major goal when I get below 250 is to get on a zipline (they have a weight max requirement I don't meet yet). I can't wait! Anyway, I love kayaking, soccer, camping, fishing, hiking, hang gliding, etc.

I would love to "meet" more of you and find a way to be an encouragement to others and make new friends! emoticon

Hi, I'm new to SparkPeople. Just signed up yesterday and trying to get a feel for what's happening. I have 100 pounds to lose but have to start slowly. I'm still recovering from a broken foot. Also, I have to be gluten free. Anyone else face this challenge?

Hi Everyone!

My name is Kelly and I'm 25. I live in Florida and work as a pet-sitter. Since I work from home, I've become pretty sedentary and have become very close with the fridge....I have a long way to go before reaching my final goal, but look forward to celebrating smaller achievements along the way while getting to know you all.

Feel free to check out my sparkpage to get to know me better. See you on the boards!

Kelly

Hi- I'm Sandi and I am 50 years old/young. I am married and have two wonderful kids- a 17 year old daughter who is graduating from high school next week and a 4 year old son. I have 130 or so pounds to get rid of. (I don't want to "find" it ever again). I want the 2nd half of my life to be healthier- I want to have fun and enjoy things that I don't right now. Looking forward to making some supportive friends here and sharing the ride with others in the same boat!

Not new to Spark but thought I would change up my strategy and only join one group and this fits the bill. I am 51, Canadian just under 6 feet tall and need to lose at least 100 pounds.

Recently have felt disheartened that I left it too long because of knee issues and now the real icing on the cake Posterior Tibial Tendonitis.

I need to lose weight fast and when I say fast ( not a fad diet) but at least 10 pounds a month and that means no fooling around.

Anyway, I hope to report loses in months to come and with that an improvement in my joints and ankle tendon.


If hunger is not the problem, then eating is not the solution

good morning.. i am kinda sorta new here. actually i have been a member for yrs but i keep giving up! sigh...here i am again. I am going to try this in a different way.
I know most will think thi goes against all of the "professionals" . they always say do this with support of the ones around you.. those around me would support me, no problem but i think i tend to feel too much pressure...
when i finally quit smoking for good, i did it without telling anyone that i was going to do it.
I was smoke free for 5 days before anyone knew...maybe its what i need to do with weight loss. I will use the online support but maybe not tell those in my "real life"

Hi team,

I think I didn't introduce myself yet, but I've lurked for almost a week. Joined a while ago but didn't really use the site until lately. I'm very motivated this time to make a *healthy* change, not just try and diet to lose weight (although I definitely need to do that!)
