Hi everyone. My name is Heather and I have been living in SE Huntsville for about 10 months now. I've been on-and-off with SparkPeople.com ... but I've been working on my weight for the past year or so and have lost at least 15 pounds. I don't ever want to go back.

I love to hike and walk, but most of my exercise happens on my elliptical at home.

I'd still like to lose about 5 more pounds, but I'm not unhappy with my current weight.

Welcome Heather, and all others who find your way here.

I don't get email notices when people post, so bare with me...

Or is it, "bear" with me?

If the truth be told, I can be a "bear" some days....

Hello Huntsville Team emoticon

I've been MIA due to me not knowing how to JUGGLE!

Seriously... I was given 41 days notice from my landlord on April 20 that I had to move

My dh and I found a house to buy, I packed up all our stuff, and we moved ourselves.

3 months to the day from we found out we had to move, we received the keys for our new home.

We've been in the house for 5 months and I'm still not unpacked, or close to it...

Anyone know where I can learn how to JUGGLE in Huntsville? emoticon

Hello Everyone! My name is Dixie and I'm excited about getting healthy. This looks like a good place for a new start at a new healthy life style change, so I'm ready to go! I've lived in Huntsville for over 30 years, raised three children here and am now helping raise three grandchildren. I figured it was time to take care of me, too, so here I am! emoticon

Anything is Possible!

Hello Everyone!

My name is Melanie and although I've "talked" about losing weight for years, it hasn't really happened yet. I ran across this site while at work and thought I would give it a try. I'm going for the small goals (drinking water, exercising 10 minutes a day at least) and doing other things such as parking at the far end of the parking lots and not using the elevator at work unless absolutely necessary. I am looking forward to getting to know everyone on here and Grats to everyone that has taken this first time!

PS: Born and raised in Huntsville :)

Welcome, Newbies!

I celebrated my 6 year anniversary with Spark People recently.
I haven't been faithful to post, or track my exercise or food & water.

If I treated my marriage the way I treat Spark People, I'd be in need of marriage counseling! {grin}

Hopefully I will do better in 2012.

I have walked two days in a row.
I am determined to walk at least 10 miles a week, and to "Eat a Rainbow" every day.

Hello! I live in Decatur, work in Madison and have lived in HSV (It's all home to me) I am 36 years old. I want to get fit and live healthier which means I need to change my lifestyle. I look forward to meeting people who have been through this journey or who are going through this with me as I know having a support group will only help me. I need someone or something to make me be accountable and hoping that sparkpeople will help me with that and the motivation I need to meet my goals. Today I have logged my food and managed to go out and walk a mile just because I wanted to log an exercise lol so this has to be a great start. I know it will be baby steps but I am ready to lose my fluff!!!

Hi. I've been thinking about lifestyle change for a while and right now a friend of mine and I are competing for results by Oct. 1st. Because I'm very competitive this may be what I need. The hardest part for me is self-control.

Hello!

My name is Canice. Canice rhymes with Denise, no "D" in Canice!
I say that because people wonder how my name is pronounced.
Now you know! {big smile}

I had to check, I've been a SP Member Since: 12/29/2005
Sadly, I weigh more now than I weighed when I started.
I actually lost and gained the same 10 to 18 pounds several times over!

I've had a yo-yo life for many years.
My moods, my weight, my activity level, my focus on healthy living...
YO-YO, up and down, with more down than up...

Maybe it's my thyroid? {grin}

{{{{HORMONES}}}}

This January I turned 21.
21 years ago I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ, and I was "Born Again."

This October I will 50!
Half a century!
My, how time flies, even when you're NOT having fun...

My family moved to the Huntsville area in June, 2010.
It was my 26th move, and not my final move...
I am convinced, "This world is not my home; I'm only passing through."

Interestes: Reading, Writing, Learning, Researching Health and Diet info, Gardening, Landscaping, Designing, Cooking...

My new favorite hobby is Sodoku Puzzles!
I'm hooked! They are adictive....

I look forward to regaining my "FOCUS" and encouraging others as we reach our goals, to live a healthy life, being the best that we can be!

Hello! I'm Kelly and I work in Huntsville. I have been playing with sparkpeople for a while but never made a serious commitment. I have tried various other programs (chief among them Medifast) and have had some success but nothing long term. I have been so incredibly motivated by so many of you in this group (guilty of sparkpage stalking!!) that I am going to commit to, not just a diet, but a lifestyle change.

My first major goal is to be 215 by November 30th when my niece is due! I do not want her to look back at pictures and recall her "Fat Aunt Kelly."

Also, I have a new position at work that is putting me front and center of a new division. Meaning lots of travel and face time.

Plus, I love clothes. I want to shop for clothes EVERYWHERE.

So, anyway, thanks for listening and I can't wait to get started on this new life!

@Amy- Hey!!! What interesting hobbies! 100 lbs is a huge goal :) I can't WAIT to see that ticker start ticking away! Welcome to the team and I hope to see you around!

@Beverly- WOW! My mother has been an RN for nearly 25 years and has many of the same compaints you do... nursing is physically and mentally exhausting. I am truly glad you have decided to become a more active member here. I hope we can help keep you engaged and active. 40 lbs won't be too bad since you already got the ball rolling with your 25 (WOW!) lb loss! See you around!

Hi to all!! From looking at my profile info it seems I joined Spark in 2007 but didn't become active. Well now I am ready to be active. My reason for returning is that I am now ready to make some major changes due to wanting to feel better.

I currently work as a nurse and am on my feet all day. The job is stressful but very rewarding. What I want to change is how I feel after work. I hurt after working, hurt enough that making it to my car is a challenge and making it inside the house even more so.

I recently rejoined Weight Watchers, so that was my first step. Since going back I have lost 25 pounds but my body still aches. I have 40 more to go. I know the weight is a huge factor in how my body feels.

My next step is to put some kind of activity into my program.

Hi All!
I'm Brandi and I've been a member since September of 2010...since then I've lost 61 pounds. I'm not as active on the boards as I should be but I am a faithful logger...plus, if I'm not at work or chasing children, I'm probably at the gym.
Before having kids, I did have interests and hobbies but with all the working out that needs to happen, it seems that I just don't have time right now. The books and knitting can wait til I'm thin enough to sit around and do things like that ;)

We got this!

Hi Huntsvillians! My name is Mary and I live in Decatur, not far from ya'll.

I love Spark and have been here a long time. I have made some good friends here too.

I am working to get the weight off that I gained when I quit smoking right in the middle of menopause LOL! Even though I gained weight, I feel so awesome not smoking! It's amazing when I got to the other side of smoking and realized that I had a good handle on my quit, I never believed I could do it. But I did! So I know if I can do that, I can do anything!

I have several things that I love. Number 1, is my teacup Poodle Princess named April. She is 5 lbs. of love on four legs. She loves everyone she meets and they love her too. She is just my whole heart!

I am also a Red Hatter and I have met so many awesome friends! It's always fun to dress up and have fun with the girls, there is so much laughter and love.

Noel - awww so sweet! emoticon Also I think you're totally lying about not having any friends. PSssh! haha. :D I don't have that many myself, but the more I put myself out there, the more I find! :) It's great!

I also neglected to share an interest... WHOOOPS.

I'm loving So You Think You Can Dance right now - it's my favorite show anyway, loved it ever since I started watching it. :) I learned to knit not too long ago and I need to start doing that again. Also I make hula hoops and teach a beginner hooping class at my work - LOVE hula hooping! and making them! I sell them for $15-$20 to people at my work that want to hoop. That just covers the costs pretty much, plus a little something for my time but not much - I'm not trying to run a racket, (Most people around town that make and sell hoops do them for $20-$30 ish) just provide a tool to people that want to get fit and have fun and not lose money doing it! hahaha.

Also I have been enjoying the Bellydance class at my gym - I got a coin scarf/jingles two weeks ago and lovelovelove that. :)

Noel, I was only quoting YOU about being bossy! emoticon If you really are bossy, I suspect you are like a dear friend of mine who is bossy, but she is so pleasant about it, no one minds!

I forgot that you asked that we share an interest and a goal! emoticon I LOVE to cross-stitch, but haven't touched it for various reasons for several years ... too much time on the computer, I think! I do love to read and do that in spare moments. My husband gave me a Kindle for Christmas, and I find it much easier to carry with me wherever I go ... and read in snatched moments.

My ultimate GOAL (in a nutshell) is to be more of what God wants me to be in every way, but the one I'm WORKING on right now is SELF-DISCIPLINE! There is a blog about it in my head ... I hope to get it in writing someday! The principles taught / learned here on SP have helped me tremendously! (But, I still have a LONG way to go!)

'Working on a balance with family, work and school' ... YOU MUST BE VERY SELF-DISCIPLINED, Noel! I admire you for it!

hey hsv sparkers,

i'm linda and i live in albertville in marshall county.

i am a retired school counselor and now i raise yorkie pups from time to time.

i am a member of the spark biggest loser challenge - sapphire team. i love these teams for motivation and long term buddies.

my goal is to stick to a low carb way of eating and lose 2 pounds a week. i would like to lose 60 pounds. desserts are my downfall - little debbie brownies and swiss cake rolls - need i say more.

i have gotten the exercise bug - well - 30 min. bug - i like my stat bike in extreme hot or cold weather and using trekking poles to walk in my pasture in milder weather.

i just returned with my daughter from a 10 day tour of 7 countries in europe - dream of a life time.

i hardly ever get to hsv, but i would love to be part of an active hsv team, online, if nothing else.

linda.

Well hello! My name is Noel as many of you know. I have been Sparking for just over 3 years now. I wasn't terribly invested in the program until I became a team leader but now I love it! OK. so I asked each of you to share an interest and a goal. My goal is to be as fit as I can while maintaining a balance with family, work and school. My main goal is to make friends ;) believe it or not, I really have none to speak of :) Thank you for the opportunity play with you guys if only in the virtual world!

@ Dana- THANK YOU for introducing yourself to the team! You are doing a SUPER job reaching your goals and all the fitness activities you keep yourself involved in keeps ME motivated and active ;) you are plain AWESOME!

@ Happy- YEAH!!! MOVE IT! MOVE IT! I'm HAPPY to see you introduce yourself ;) you seem to have had a VERY busy month. How fun was it to have a house full of soccer players?! I'll hit you up soon for that walk you owe me ;)

@Laura- Thanks for introducing yourself :) I read ALL your blogs and I love that you are so active on the Spark. YOu are working SO hard and your have made INCREDIBLE progress! Keep it up!

@Barbara- that's right... I'm bossy ;) I can't help it. I was raised with 4 brothers... it is in my nature to be bossy. I have to hold it in sometimes. I wanted to congratulate you on meeting your first goal and for setting your next benchmark. WAY TO GO! and keep tracking those Spark fitness minutes.... did you notice we jumped from 134th to 85th in ONE WEEK?! GO HUNTSVILLE!!! I bet we can make top 50 one of these days if folks who don't track their fitness minutes (like me) would take two minutes to enter them in. Thank you for doing your part! YOU ROCK!

@ Jennifer- HEY!!! it is AWESOME to see you in this forum. Thank you for (re) introducing yourself to the team :) You have been a loooong time member of the HSV Sparkers and it is always nice to see you here. Photography huh? you should post some of your recent pics :) I'm sure we would LOVE to see them! and stop in whenever you think you need someone to push you and help you reach your fitness goals. WE ARE HERE FOR YOU!!!!

Thanks again for introducing yourselves! Hopefully we'll get to know a BUNCH of our team mates. with better than 2500 team members I'm sure we have a wealth of knowledge, experience and motivational folks to help each of us meet our goals.

emoticon I'm Jennifer. I've got a lot of weight to lose and have several health issues (some contribute to the weight and some are exasperated by the weight). Even though I haven't really lost much since joining SP, I haven't gained much either which is a big win for me. I recently was diagnosed with sleep apnea and hope that once its treated I will have the energy to up my exercise and get the weight loss moving. As for fun, I enjoy photography (mostly landscapes) and scrapbooking.

Since Noel is showing us her bossy side emoticon (I think that is how she described herself in today's SparkMail.) I decided to introduce myself! I've been on the team for a while, but have not been very active.

I reached my first goal of losing 15 pounds; changed my goal and reached goal of losing 20 pounds; changed my goal again to lose 25 ... and HAVE REALLY BEEN STRUGGLING! I know that a lot of the reason is I became TOO BUSY FOR SP and have not been here (at least not consistently) for quite a while. I've rededicated my efforts and know I have to come here at least a little while EVERY DAY! (I have recorded my walking so that I can contribute to SPARKAMERICA, even though I haven't done much else.)

I just finished tracking my food for today, and just as "In the beginning ...." I had way underestimated the calories I had consumed! But, they were fewer than I ate yesterday and the day before. Those five pounds are COMING OFF!

emoticon I appreciate the encouragement that is offered so freely here and hope I encourage others, as well.

Oops! Almost forgot ... My name is Barbara. :)

Hello fellow Huntsville Sparkers!! I'm Laura, also known as 2bblicious (stands for 'to be bootylicious', which is always a laudable goal! hee hee) My DH and I have lived in Huntsville since 1998, and it's really become our home.
My overall goal is to be healthier and more aware of what I put in my body and how much I move. I've already improved in that respect!
Overall I'd like to lose a total of 45 pounds. I'm just about 2/3 of the way there, so that's a good thing!
Best of luck to all of us!


-Laura

Hello Everyone! I am HappySparke and I am having a very hectic summer! I haven't been on SP in the past week or so and I have missed lots of fun I know! Always good to get back to the fun with y'all. My goal is to keep moving every day with cleaning throughout the summer! And to keep moving with planning and making healthy meals! And to keep moving with walking my dogs! Happy to be here and happy to be spark friends! (PS we just hosted 4 soccer stars (ages 16-17) from South Africa along with their coach for 5 days! LOVED the experience!)

Hello! I'm Dana - I'm working to get back into my skinny jeans (guessing my weight will go down a bit, but I'm not stressing that as much) and to build up my running to 30+ MPW without getting injured this year! :)

Hello, Never really introduce myself on here, so I better get started.
I'm Lynn, and I have been a member of sparks since 11/08 and I love it over here.
I met so many wonderful people, and also love sparking with others.
I am here to get rid of these pounds, but it's a roller coaster..
You know, it's hard losing weight & trying to balance home and business..

But you do what you can, and you keep on pushing forward..
Things in your life can be changed, and then can be fixed if you really work hard at it.
I'm on a mission, and that mission is finding me "personally" and understanding the ties I have with these ups and downs with the scales, but life is an emotional roller coaster.. It just depends on how fast you want the ride to go. And right now, I'm trying to do emoticon
speed...

Nice to meet all of you, and I hope to see you all soon, because you will be seeing a lot of me.

Hello!

Hope everyone is having an excellent day! (It is Friday, after all!) I'm Melissa and I'm ready to shed some pounds. I'm glad that there is a Huntsville group to celebrate achievements and voice frustrations with because I need the extra boost sometimes.
