Hi everyone! I'm Deedee. I have been a Spark member since 2012 and have been very successful but am creeping back up again and need some accountability this year. I live in Lakewood but commute to Medina County everyday. I'm a cyclist, a Gramma and love to stay active. Looking forward to getting to know you and share motivation and support in our community. Good Luck in 2016! emoticon

Hello! My name is Tracy and I was born & raised in the Greater Cleveland area. Though I currently reside in Nashville, TN, my family & I are planning to move back to the area in 2016. I just recently had a Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy and I am committed to finally losing this extra weight and becoming the healthy me that I was meant to be. I look forward to getting to know you all and can't wait to share this journey with you all. emoticon

Hi everyone! I used to be really active on this site a few years ago, but haven't been on it for a while. Having a few hectic months, and my eating habits haven't been great. I need some more focus, and think that spending more time with Sparkpeople will help me. I never stopped tracking, but I started not caring where the calories ended up at the end of the day. Welcome to all the other new people!

Born and raised in Cleveland, but live in Richfield now, just want to get healthy, not getting any younger, so I want to get in shape to head off any catastrophes in the future. Been here for 2 years but only in the past 6 months have I gotten serious with Sparks by posting and weighing in on a regular basis. emoticon

Hi. I'm new to the group. I live in Euclid and I've been diagnosed with GERD. I need to lose more weight so as to keep the acid down better. I have lost about 12 pounds since May. But its hard to lose weight when you are older. I walk around our block, but I don't tolerate walking long times, because I get short of breath. So I walk about 10 minutes at a time. I try to stay away from trigger foods, and that leaves very little left to enjoy. I hope to meet others on this group and will welcome any help. Thanks.

Hi Donna,

I live in Strongsville, and I work on Granger Road (Independence.) I'm just around the corner from Valley View!

I'm trying to reinvent myself (again!) and get more involved so I can lose this weight once and for all. I keep trying and trying and giving up is not an option.

Welcome to the team! Although, I'm not sure how many active members there are on this particular team. LOL

Hi all. I am brand new to the site. I just turned 41 6/30 and I really want to make some changes in my life. I have a very active son and 2 dogs to keep up with. My husband and I both need to lose weight. I have challenges with physical activity because I have fibromyalgia, PCOS and osteoarthritis in my ankles. A bunch of other things too but those are the most limiting. All limit my activity significantly. BUT I don't want to submit and take it lightly. I want to live and be as active as I can. It's a challenge because there is never enough time in the day and I need to understand my limits - never been very good with limits! LOL. I do work full time too. Looking forward to learning from you all and I hope that this keeps me going.

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.
