Hi all. I'm a newbie. I started watching what I'm eating before I got back into SP. Or it might be more accurate to say how much I'm eating. Having decent success and so far it's all been pretty easy. Looking for support, encouragement and accountability. Most exercises I have to modify because I need both knees replaced. No more diets! I'm just living healthier. I'm feeling really positive with just two months in. I can do this!

New here today! Hello and thanks for having me!

Started at 267. I'm disabled, have severe osteoarthritis, RA, severe degenerative disc disease, Fibro & other things that attack me. I use a cane & a wheelchair & started a new journey 9-1-16 getting about 32 people involved in a "Biggest Weight Loser" contest. Shortly after I started up on SparksPeople. My goal is to lose 149 pds by Summer of 2019 for my adopted foster son's High School Graduation. #32.9 down so far.. Week #4 ended for my group I started & combined they'd lost 316 pounds together already!!

Hey I am new to this forum and in hopes of finding a group that will help push me to get to my goal weight. I have fell off the wagon several times and am hoping to have this one be my last one. I need serious support in my goal. I am a 40 yr old mother of 4 having my last baby last year. So part of the "excuse" was maintaining mommyhood and put all my effort into her. but I don't want to die before I can see my babies grow up. I really am praying of better results this time around.


Thanks,
Trixy

Hello, my name is Dennisse and I am 26 years old. I live in San Antonio, TX with my wife and furbaby. I love my job but it is sedentary so I have gained more weight than ever. I started the year at 300 lbs, the highest I have ever been and am around 270. I have been seeing a dietician for the last five months and it does help but I need someone to keep me motivated and and keep me accountable!

If you are interested in being my buddy, add me and let me know! I need you as much as you need me :)

Hello, my name is Cheryl and I am starting again with Spark People. I am a biology teacher (still teaching), and a dachshund lover. I have 100+ points to lose, and I have to control my A1C level (dropped from 11 to 6.3 in 2015 doing low carb). Now I have to take off this excess weight, but with bad knees and hips and my age (65), I need advice on how to add exercise that I can actually do. Has anyone else been VERY out of shape when you started that could give me ideas about HOW to even start exercising? emoticon emoticon

Hi there, I'm Gail and I've been on SP for quite some time. I was really active in the 30's+ page but now I'm over 40 and moving on. Three years ago, I had gotten in a car accident and broke every bone in my right foot leaving me laid up for over 8 months. Well, the foot is healed and my life is slowly getting back to normal; so I decided it was time to get back on SP! I've got a LOT of weight to loose, so I hope to be joining some challenges to keep me motivated!

Gail & Speedy...

Hi Shawn,
Now that it is Summer and school is closed for awhile, it might be a good time for you to take advantage and put yourself as number 1! You could go swimming in the hot weather. One thing I like to do on hot days is eat ice, cools me down and 0 calories. Keep lots of veggies cut and ready to eat. Good luck with your journey.

emoticon Everyone, My name is Linda & I've been on spark it seems for eons. My highest weight was 276 lbs. My lowest weight Was 198 lbs. last July. I've been gaining & losing 40 lbs. for almost a year now. One thing is I never gave up! I'm not getting any younger & it's only a matter of time before my metabolism slows down to a emoticon pace. I have made the decision to get this weight off once & for all. I've been back on track since April 16th. It's been slow going but I'm hanging in their.

Hey everyone! My name is Shawn. I'm 24 years old and currently weigh 350lbs. The weight keeps adding on. I'm the largest that I've ever been. I'd ultimately like to be 200lbs. Being overweight has been a struggle for as far back as I can remember.

I have to take medication for high heart rate, and my blood pressure is on the verge of being high. I sweat all of the time, get out of breath easily, and my legs and back always hurt. Being so overweight scares me because my grandmother's brothers all died in their 50s, years after having open heart surgery. I don't want to follow down this path.

I'm a teacher, and I'm to the point where I can't wear my dress clothes while feeling comfortable because my belly sticks out so much, so I'm always throwing vests on top of my tucked in shirts no matter how hot I get. I'm unable to be the energetic teacher that my students need me to be due to physically being unable and self-consciously thinking the children will say hurtful things.

It's time for me to make a change (I feel like I say this every time). I want a healthy life, but I don't know exactly how to do it in a healthy, life-long way. I hope this time will be different with what seems like an amazing support team here.

Hello
My name is Bonnie, I am a 38 year old mother of 5,3 adult sons and teenage daughter and a preteen daughter.

I have been a homemaker for the last 6 years due to sleep apnea and arthritis in my back and neck, all weight related. I have made multiple attempts to lose weight including 6week body makeover,weight watchers, 21day fix,17 day diet and many others.

I currently have around 130lbs to lose to reach my healthy weight. Right now I am giving Weight Watchers another go and I am trying to focus on 5lbs at a time.

Hello all!

My name is Nola, I am a 38 year old mother of two teen boys!

I have been overweight my whole life, or at least since the age of 6. I've tried countless times to lose the weight and countless times I have failed. I decided that giving up isn't an option, I have to keep trying!

Really need some communications with people who know what it feels like and who want to make a difference in their lives as well as others.

I currently have over 130 lbs to lose to reach my goal weight. I am trying to stay focused on 10lbs at a time!

Hi, I'm Vicki, and my ultimate goal would be to get back down to around 167 lbs., so that would be a goal of 100 lbs. total to lose. I'm down 13 lbs. so far so I do have a ways to go.
My current goal is to be under 200 lbs. by my birthday next August. After that, I'll decide if I want or need to lose the rest.

Hi, I'm Larry and I have 105#s to lose. I live in central Illinois with my wife of 45 years. We have 3 grown children and two wonderful grandchildren. I am diabetic and have been a terrible diabetic for a number of years. Every time I see my doctor, she keeps throwing more pills at me to help lower my blood sugars and A1C. Its no one else's fault; only mine for the terrible physical shape that I find myself in.

I need a team that will support and challenge me to stay on the path of good nutrition and good physical shape.

Hello! I'm 26 and 110 pounds overweight currently. I have been a member of sparkpeople for quite some time but haven't really had the ooomph to do much. I was diagnosed with clinical depression and recently I have started treatment. The more I stick to the treatment, the better I feel. I am starting to feel like anything is possible. In fact, I did my first hour long yoga class this morning.

Hi everyone. My name is Beverly and I live in MI with my husband and his guide dog. I have been over weight all of my life and have decided enough is enough. This past year has been such a struggle and I realize how important being healthy and taking care of yourself is. December 2013 I was diagnosed with cancer and had a complete hysterectomy. Then in January 2014 my husband came down with H1N1 and it is a miracle he is alive. He was in the hospital for 9 months. During that time I did not take care of myself and did a lot of stress eating causing me to gain even more weight. I have a lot do lose but am making small goals for myself so it is not so overwhelming. Thanks for listening. I look forward to encouraging and motivating each other. It will be great to get to know all of you.

Hugs,
Beverly from MI

Hello to all. I'm Helen, 53, and I am looking for friendship and support as I make this effort once more. I've been heavy almost all of my life and now have several medical conditions that were brought on by my obesity. One of my main struggles is patience when it comes to doing good things for myself. I hope I can learn how to persevere in health-related areas.

Wishing everyone a good day.

Hi team! My name is Kat and I'm 26 years old. This definitely isn't my first rodeo with Sparkpeople :) I ultimately want to lose 110 pounds and be at 170-175 pounds. I am hoping to make sparkfriends that will help me stay on track and I can do the same for them as well!

Hi there!

I have been up-and-down with weight for a while now, and last summer was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I'm trying to get my weight under control, in order to help keep my symptoms in check.

I joined Weight Watchers on December 13th and weighed 273.6 pounds. On the 20th, at my first weigh-in, I was down 2.6 pounds. I decided to join SP to help my WW journey.

I rejoined Spark people a month ago, and I'm down 12 pounds. Originally I weighed 300 pounds when I went on a strick liquid diet. I loss 100 pounds but gained most of it back. When I started spark people again last month I weighed 269 and today I weigh 258. I'm married and my husband has joined me in doing workouts (walking, stationary bike, etc), and eating healthier. He's lost almost 30 pounds (his starting weight was 350, he dropped 10 pounds before we got serious about doing this together), and he's lost another 20 pounds in the last month and 1/2. Were working to have a more active live style and enjoying life and our retirement years (he's 62 and I'm 61). I have 2 children and 4 grandsons.

Looking forward to our more active lifestyle.

Hello everyone! My name is Crissy and I'm 29 years old. I live in Kentucky with my amazing husband, 2 children (9 year old son/2 year old daughter), and our 3 year old mutt whose name is Malia.
I've always been on the chunky side, however, I've had a wakeup call recently that made me realize just how far I've allowed myself to go. I'm now weighing in at my highest weight ever...210 lbs.
I can't wait to meet all of you and watch you all meet your goals!

Don't lose hope because you never know what tomorrow holds.

Greetings and Salutations.

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.

Hi all wanted to stop by and introduce myself. My name is Michelle and I live in Canada, I have three great kids a wonderful boyfriend and love life in general :) The only thing that I don't love is my weight lol. I have been battling emotional eating and boredom eating for as long as I can remember (currently I am on the losing end of the battle) I am ready for a change ! I look forward to getting to know new people who share my struggles and know what this battle is really like :)

More sweat now,
Less jiggle later :D

emoticon all new and returning members. I, too, have been MIA since June but know that I can not do this weight journey on my own and need SP and everyone on this team for support. I have lost 32 pounds before but now am at a plateau of +2 or -2 and am struggling to get over it. Good luck to everyone and I know that we can do this together. emoticon

Hi everyone,

My name is Michelle. I have been on SparkPeople for about a month but am new to this team. I am looking forward to getting to know everyone!

~~ Michelle ~~

Don't waste your time with "could've," "would've" or "should've." Focus on "can," "will," and "do."

Time will pass no matter what .... will I be closer to or farther from my goals

It's not that some people have willpower and some don't. It's that some people are ready to change and others are not. Finally, I am ready to change!

I'm here because I need to drop weight and can't do it on my own. I have 100 pounds to drop and I have to start now. I tend to be an emotional eater, so obviously this is a challenge. I hope to meet some new friends and gain support.

Hi my name is Sandy. Today I weigh 331. I began at 414 over 4 years ago. I would be happy making it to 199, so that's about 130 pounds to go.

I was looking at my Spark Friends and all of them have abandoned ship so I am searching for active members and new groups for more participation and encouragement. Also, people that understand!

I hope I can encourage someone just as much!

I live in Southern Ohio, am 45, married and a mom and grandma. I like crafts, reading and my exercise consists of recumbent bike and treadmill mostly.

How do you feel about Spark's calorie burn estimates for your weight? Are they fairly accurate?

Oh well, hit me up! :)

Hi everyone. My name is Dana. I'm not really new. I've been a member, an inactive member for some time. I let life get in the way of doing what I need to do. I have missed sparkspeople. I'm not going to promise that things will not get hectic again but I will try a lot harder this time to stay on track.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone again. Have a great day. emoticon

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!!

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.

NEVER. GIVE. UP.
I CAN DO IT! I MUST!
