Good morning,

My name is Maureen. I have been on a weight loss journey for the last 12 months through Weight Watchers and have dropped a total of 30 pounds. I am within 8 pounds of reaching my goal weight. Part of my joining this site has been to hopefully find further encouragement and help in getting motivated and staying motivated to be more active. Now that the winter is past us (at least I hope it is), I'm looking forward to getting outdoors more and walking. I live in Rocky River if there is anyone from the surrounding suburbs who would like to meet and join me for a walk that would be great. I've recently started doing yoga at home as well as doing a kettle bell workout. Have a great day everyone.

Hello my name is Valerie and I live in Maple Heights. I am 54 years old and I have struggled with my weight for at least 25 years. I really love food...not the usual stuff like candy, chocolate, cake, etc. I love meat and potatoes with a little veggies thrown in. I managed OK...pounds up and down...then I quit smoking about 12 years ago and I was no longer OK. I have been on many diets off and on as many of you can probably relate to. Unfortunately, I have allowed myself to get to the point where I have now been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. I am on 2 medications and I feel lousy and depressed. After moping around for a while I decided no one was going to be able to help me but me. Needless to say, I have said this before, but I am really going to try and get my head into the game. I have been using Spark since Monday, 3/31/14 to control my calories but I am now logging in every day...reading articles and now joining this group. I am trying to change my mind-set also. Well...I guess that is enough for now. I really do look forward to this journey.

Always looking for a "lighter" tomorrow!

Hi! My name is Cali and I live in North Ridgeville. I was very active here on spark people between my first two children as I got ready for a friends wedding and then my own. Two more children later and approaching our 5 year wedding anniversary I am back! Our kids are now 8, 3 and next month our youngest will be 1. My husband is very fit, he has competed in several triathlons and half marathons. Next Jan. we will be going to Disney for our Daughter's birthday (which is in april, but Jan. is a better time for us to go) and he is going to do the Half (possibly) Full marathon. I would love to get to a point where I can do the 10k (I know I can make the 5k for sure by then). Come spring when I can run outside I will start 5k training and progress from there, until then I am focused on losing weight and building strength and stamina.

I have about 60lbs to lose (give or take depending on how I look/feel). Winter in Ohio is not kind! With three kids i have very little time to get to the gym, so my husband and I started putting one together in our home, we have a smith machine (big multi use weight machine), other weights small things like resistance bands, jump rope, mats etc. I am on a quest for the perfect priced cardio machine (pref a treadmill or elliptical). In the process I got hooked on T25, I am on week two now and loving in! My best friend is also doing it, so it really helps to have that extra push.

I posted more about my journey on my SparkPage, please feel free to add me! I look forward to getting to know everyone!

Hello everyone,
I've been on SP for about a month now and am finding it helpful - as long as I can keep up with the tracking. I'm very new to the social aspects, and am hoping that getting involved more will help keep me going.

I live in Stow - so a little south of Cleveland. Love the Indians, Browns and Cavs! I am a business owner and mother of 4. My oldest lives in Lakewood and is a substitute teacher in the Lakewood city schools, #2 is getting married this summer and lives in Akron, #3 is in his senior year at OU, and #4 is in 8th grade.

I'm a very active person, but have been slightly overweight since the 4th child. I weigh now what I did when 9 months pregnant. My goals are to get down to a healthier weight so I can continue to be active as I get older. I plan to live into my 90's and want to be active all the way through.

Hi, I live on the west side, in Sheffield Lake. I've been doing SP for quite a while now, and while I back slid a while back (I tend to stress eat, and I was going through some major things), I am starting to get back on track.

Hi, I'm Bonnie. I just moved to Rocky River a few months ago after my spouse handed me divorce papers after 14 years. But I'm soooo much happier without him! I have 3 chronic pain disabilities that really hinder my activity levels, but my legs still work so my true goal is to move 30 minutes a day...and if I lose 20 pounds in the process, I'm not gonna complain...lol. I was enjoying our Ohio weather by walking outside but now that winter is closing in on us, I joined Planet Fitness. Here's to looking forward and not back!!

Vanessa, and others, thanks for words of encouragement. Doing well since joining SP 10/17/13. Very interested in this team. I began my weight loss trek in June 2010 at 535 pounds. I am down 155 pounds, 100 on Jenny, 45 on my own, and 10 so far on SP. I retired from full time employment in Dec 2012, and focusing on myself for the first time in my life. I am about 1/2 way to my conservative goal. Live in the country, Lake co., but downtown a lot due to many work contacts. I wish you well and look forward to meeting more local SP. Tearose22/Tina

HI EVERYONE!!

I have not been tracking my progress on the site for a couple of months. But I am back. My name is Andie, from the far east side of Cleveland. I feel really positive this time around about loosing some weight. I have set a personal goal to just decrease my daily caloric intake by at least 200-300 calories. Some days I do great. Others I slip a little.

Thank you everyone for your support. I would like to start a walking team for those people who live in or near Lake County. Please email me.

Andie

Hello All!!! My name is Nicole and I live in the Medina Area, but I'm from Cleveland area. I have been with SP for almost 3 weeks now and let me tell you how much this movement is already starting to change my life! @ 180lbs I was the heaviest I have ever been, and I think I hit the bottom. I felt nothing and didn't care anymore. Well all it took was a little SPARK to make the biggest impact on my life right now! As a mommy of 2 beautiful babies and a wife to a very active husband, I can't afford to sit on this tooshy anymore! I tried running.....SLOPPY! So I dusted off my bike that I haven't ridden in years and started riding! WOW! I forgot how nice it is to ride a bike. Anyway, now after 17 days, I have lost at least 12 pounds(weigh in fri) and I know I have lost inches, but I don't get to measure for another week and a half! I am training for my first bike race in about 5 weeks and I'm riding between 10 and 12 miles a day! I would do more if I had time, but for now that is what I have! So thanks so much SP for helping me renew faith in myself, so that I may be a role model for my family and we can live long healthy lives together!!!

If you don't like starting over....STOP giving up!!! NICOLE

Hi, my name is Nikki-Nichole I live in Euclid, Ohio. i am a mother of 4 kids and also a full time student. I had never had problems dropping the weight until my last child was born 4 years ago. I'm making drastic changes in my life including my desire to quit smoking (for good). I joined SP because I have alot of people in my life that say " You are incrediably beautiful; you know ' You'd be alot preetier if you lost some weight". Ironically these same people are not supportive. i need motivation. I start and usually crash after 2 weeks. My last attempt to lose weight, before now I lasted almost 2 months. It would be nice if I can meet some people in my area that would like to be inspiring for each other,

Simply Me

Hey... I'm Eric. I'm 35, I live in Lakewood with my fiancee and I workout at Planet Fitness in Rocky River. last time I weighted myself I weighed 265, which considering I'm short, is way too much. That was 3 weeks ago, though, and I've been lifiting weights like a madman since. I can tell that it's working because I can tighten my belt two extra notches already, and I'm hoping to keep it up. Actually, my biggest challenge is food. I love pretty much anything that's horrible for me, and a lot of it. So that's where I really need to improve. So if you see a bald guy at Planet Fitness Rocky River wearing a nerdy t-shirt, come and say hi.

Hi All, My name is Crystal and I moved backed to Cleveland 3 years ago. This is also my 2nd time here on Spark People. Last time I lost 5 pounds and pretty much stayed at the same weight. This was 4 years ago! Anyway, I look forward to reading your posts and maybe giggle at some while agreeing with them. I may have grown up in Cleveland and spent the past 3 years back, but I still hate the snow. Ha ha ha! Good day to all.

Hi my name in Michelle I live in North Ridgeville, but I am from Cleveland, I joined SP along time ago but never used it :(. I read a members blog yesterday and I have decided to give it another try. I am determined to get back to the old me which was a very active athletic person. I have a lot of weight to loose and I could use as much support as possible. I have signed up for two runs, one in August the other in September. I am hoping I will be fit enough to complete these.

Hi! My name is Holly and I live in Westlake. I've only been a member of SparkPeople for about a week but I'm already finding the support is making a big difference in being able to stick to my diet. My biggest problem is finding ways to be more active. I absolutely hate the cold.

Hi! I'm Lindsay. I'm 30 (almost 31, but I'm milking 30 for as long as I can), and I live in Cleveland proper. 18 months ago, I switched jobs, and gained a lot of weight. Then, in November, I quit my job to be a SAHM to my 4 year old son. I've gained more weight as my stress has gone up. My goal is to lose 50 lbs by July and another 30 lbs by October. I'm hoping to find some cool people to form a support system. I've had a problem with motivation lately. :)

You can turn off the sun, but I'm still gonna shine!

So, I don't know if I've ever actually posted in this thread before. I feel as though I should have by now, considering how long I've been on SparkPeople, and how long I've been a member of this team. There's a good chance that I didn't bother at first, though, as I tend to find things like this incredibly impersonal. The more people there are to witness something, the fewer people there are who will actually take action. I see plenty of posts here, and the vast majority of them are met with a canned "welcome new people" sort of response. These message boards are designed to help create the kind of one-on-one support systems that are necessary for people struggling with their goals. There are plenty of people in this group, many of whom are struggling to attain their ideal healthy lifestyle. However, the number of people on here makes it far more likely for each person to glance over a post and say to themselves "I don't need to help this person. There are plenty of people on here. Someone else will help them," leaving a great many people without the support they so desperately need and are searching for. This fact makes it far less likely that the majority of these people will actually find the support system that they need. Having said all this, I will at least mention that I am 27, and in a battle to lose over 70 pounds. My problems have mainly been my height (at 6'1", people are always saying things like "You're not fat, you're just tall," or "You carry it so well.") and the fact that it is hard for me to give up foods. I feel as though I shouldn't have to give up anything, just reduce the amount that I consume. It's hard to find the right amounts, though. I've recently started planning dinner meals for the week, and am going to start a yoga routine several nights a week. With classes starting in a week, I will have less free time to exercise, and I know it will be a challenge. Hopefully I'll be able to see it through to the end of the semester.

Happy New Year Clevelanders! I am new here. I have about 15 pounds I need to lose to get back to my comfort zone but more importantly I am trying to develop healthier habits and get back into shape (yes round is a shape just not the one I prefer for me). I am happily married to an Army soldier who is currently training in SC & VA until June. I have children whose ages range from 22 years old to 13 months old. I am open-minded and laid back and would love to find work out buddies. I work out M-W-F at the Hillcrest Y in Lyndhurst. Please feel free to private message me if you are also in need of a workout buddy.

Hello! My name is Sarah. I'm a 30 year old Clevelander and I'm trying to get fit and stay that way by making realistic lifestyle changes. I started working downtown in July and have added a lot of walking into my M-F routine. I refuse to gain any more weight by being a desk jockey. I'm also currently training to run a 5K and try out for the Burning River Roller Girls. Some of my favorite things are roller derby, video games, pets, good beer (super dangerous for weight loss!), and meeting new people. I'm looking forward to participating in this Team, being motivated by you guys, and maybe even helping to motivate others, as well. Happy Friday! Cheers! :)

Hello. My name is Jennifer. I just joined SparkPeople a week ago and am still exploring the site. I'm feeling pretty awful physically, so here I am. My mom passed away in June so my biggest issue is going to be motivation to eat right and to exercise. I live in Cleveland Heights and am a single mom. It's great to see so many people in our area losing weight and getting fit.

Hi everyone. I am Michelle. I am 33, married and have only lived in University Heights for a little over a year. We are here for my husband's residency at the Cleveland Clinic. I need to lose weight so I can start a family and thought why not start today! I also work for the Clinic and also a nursing student at Tri-C.

Hi!
I'm 24 and have had a sparkpeople account for awhile now, just have not actually taken advantage as I hope to fully now. I work in sales and do sidejobs to help ends meet and creativity flowing :-) Starting school again this fall, time to get a move on with my life! I do not like being so unhealthy, just feels gross! So hoping this will help keep my motivation up and running! I have quite a bit of weight to lose and it seems very daunting, I think that has always been my problem. Not sticking with things long enough to actually see a real difference and I think that discouraged and just made me feel like it is impossible! So as cheesy and perhaps weird this may sound, I am here to tell my brain "screw you!" because in my heart I know I can do it!

Hi everyone! My first time joining a team. I work in downtown Cleveland, but live on the water in Huron. Quite a drive every day, but worth it. I have about 30 lbs. that I am working on losing. My cholesterol is on the high/normal side, and I don't want to resort to medication. Have a great day, and looking forward to hearing from you!

Hi there. I've been poking around on Sparkpeople for the past two days. Seems really neat! My goal is to lose about 50 pounds, and I was happy to see that there was a local forum on here. So much good information, and opportunities to give and receive support!

Next Sunday (June 3rd) is national cancer survivors day. Please join me and a few thousands of my friends to celebrate that day by running the 5k OR walking 1mile at 'Race for the place' at Beachwood place.

It is a very non-intimidating event which benefits the Gathering Place www.touchedbycancer.org in Beachwood and Westlake.

For more information and registration log on to www.touchedbycancer.org/support-us/racefor
theplace/


Bring a few friends - perhaps you will meet other sparkers there. I will be there in my 'spokesofhope' jersey.

Approaching 50 I was told by my doc I would have to take a sugar and cholesterol test on a regular basis to continue on the only script I take because my BMI is over 25.
Seems healthier to just get my BMI there and not be in a "high risk" group.
So I have around 3 months to lose 25 lbs.
I have never been so motivated.
Happy to be part of the team

Hey everyone! I'm new here... I've been using the SparkPeople calorie counter for a little over a week now. That's my first goal... to get a handle on what I eat, how much and why it's so bad for me! :) I'll break the ice at the gym soon enough...
I could use all the support I can get as I tackle the water-drinking and calorie-counting!
Thanks!

Hello. I am Russ.

I grew up in the Cleveland area but now live in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I have been Sparking for several years now and don't know why I haven't joined this team sooner. I have Browns season tickets and go up there for 6 or so games a year, so joining is a natural for me.




Expect to win.

Hi, my name is Stacy and I turned 40 in July. I am very happily married and have three daughters. They are 20, 19 and 4. Over the past 12 years I have gained over 100 lbs. I attribute most of the weight gain to the death of my father and panic attacks. I am so very tired of being judged and treated differently because of my weight. My weight has held me back on many fronts. Most of all my self esteem took a huge hit. I came to this website from caloriecount. I started at 245 lbs and now weight 232, so I am making progress, but it's a slow road and I have a long way to go. I really look forward to meeting new friends and wish you all the best of luck!

Hi all. My name is Karen. I have recently quit smoking and now it is time to change my body. I have tried to lose weight in the past and just fell of the wagon. I'm here to get back on it. I figure I have about 70-80 lbs that I want to lose. I get most of my encouragement from social media......twitter: karen4581.

Hi my name is Kim. Health issues over the past couple of years have caused a decrease in activity & an increase in weight. I've decided that I can't wait for the health to change on it's own & that I have to be an active participant in the change. By changing my diet & working on increasing my activity level. I'm hoping to meet others that will support me (& I them) in their goals, as well as maybe getting together & walking.

Welcome,

If you need anything let me know. The journey is sometimes hard but always worth it. I struggle from time to time, and have to keep focused on my goals of a healthy lifestyle.

Hi. My name is Rieale; I'm 34 and live on the west side.

My hurdles to weight loss are consistent exercise and eating out of stress. But I'm working on this now and hope to lose 60 lbs. this year so I can achieve the same size that I was when my boyfriend and I met ten years ago. I want to get healthy for myself and for those around me who need a nudge too.

I look forward to getting to know this group and seeing your successes.

Hi my name is Wayne and I am going to have bariatric surgery on the 3rd of Jan.and hope to lose 100# in the new year. I live on the westside and can't wait to be able to eat some food again,liquid diets aren't very much fun but necessary. I'm 62 and really excited to get back in shape.

Well surgery is all over with and it went very well. I'm back on my liquid diet and trying to walk a little bit everyday. One week follow up on Friday.emoticon

Hi I am new to spark and I wanted to introduce myself. I am a single mom of one son and would like to lose 50 pounds in a year. I have lost 20 pounds since September and hopefully i can lose more by having the support of other Clevelanders trying to lose weight.

Hello, I'm Connie and here's a little bit about me. I'm the mother of 3 wonderful children, my interest is reading, watching good movies, spending time with my Family and shopping. for 16 years I have operated a home daycare as a Type Childcare Provider. I love to be creative, have fun, learn and of course my children. I hope to lose weight, improve my health and just feel better over all. I dislike the cold & snow, even thogh I live in Cleveland emoticon. I look forward to making the most of the Spark program this time around by getting involved with the teams for support and motivation. I look forward to chatting with some of you soon.
