Hi, I have been a member of Sparks people for quite a few years, but have never put the work in that I needed to loose weight. I think that was because I took on too much as I also wanted to quit smoking. Well, I have been a non smoker now for almost 6 years so time to get my head in the same place and ditch the fat.

No, I'm not as confident as that sounds and my willpower changes with the weather, but I'm aware of this and so looking for the same online support I was lucky enough to find when quitting smoking. emoticon

I am married and recently celebrated our Golden Wedding by driving to Sicily and up through Italy. We have 4 children, 10 grandchildren and 6 Great Grandchildren. Love them all to bits. I live in South Leicestershire right on the boarder with Northamptonshire.

Hi
I am new. I am Ken and married to Millie-Milou (Raffie).
I need to lose 20lbs or so and thought that I would do so with the aid of SP and my bike.

We actually live in Norfolk at the moment but as MM is a member of this team, I thought that it would be OK to join here.

I am a dog walker so get a bit of exercise every day. I am not much of a blogger or messager but MM says that this is a great site and to just get on with it.

Hello!
So glad I stumbled on this team.
I'm Catherine and am in Leicestershire.
I've been Sparking for a few years now and as you will see from my Sparkpage, have become a little bit too - err - enthusiastic with the exercise and calorie control.
I won't stop working out though as it is my stress buster - but I know I must gain weight in order to be healthy again. So basically that means simply eating more! Wish it were that easy!

Edited by: WAYCAT at: 3/4/2013 (05:24)
Please read my ticker backwards as I am trying to gain weight.
More details on my Spark Page.

Ok here goes ....

5 positive things about me...

I'm a great multi tasker
I'm good at problem solving - I can usually work my way round problems
I can always see the good in people
I love my son/ surrogate son/ step kids and grandchild so much it hurts! I would die for them
I'm an organiser - I get people to where they should be on time and with the what they need. probably a good thing cos everyone that lives in my house is so disorganised :)

Three jobs I have had in my life:
1. Telesales (selling everything!)
2. Residential School House Matron in India
3. Carrot chopper (8 hours of that a day and I never wanted to see another carrot in my life!)

Three Places that I have lived:
1. Nuneaton
2. Swansea (whilst at University)
3. Birmingham (current location)

Three TV shows I like to watch:

dont watch tv

Three places I have taken vacations/holidays:
1. Zante in Greece
2. Turkey
3. Egypt

Three of my favorite foods:
1. Chicken
2. chocolate
3. crisp green apples

Three Favorite Drinks:
1. Tea
2. Milky coffee
3. Water

Three places where I would rather be right now:
1. anywhere other than sat at my desk and supposed to be working
2. On holiday with my kids/ partner and chilling
3. anywhere remotely naturey - in birmingham its hard sometimes to remember that peace and quiet exists

Three interests or hobbies:
1. Music, used to play various instruments and love any type of music
2. pumping iron at the gym - i love the weights room and could quite happily give up cardio completely as i find it so boring. I love to outlift virtually everyone in the room and watch the face of the poseur guys as I hit the iron (priceless!)
3. helping people - I'm a pleaser so I love to feel that Im doing something good for people. this makes those around me lazy as they know I will invariably jump in and do whatever needs doing for them.... trying to break the habit but hard.

Three of my Pet peeves:
1. Bigotry or hatred of any kind
2. People who drive right behind me and leave no braking distance.
3. when people put an empty packet or carton back in the fridge/ cupboard - is it really so hard to throw it away!

Hello. I'm Diana from Cambridge, which isn't strictly in the Midlands but you guys smile a lot more than they do further south.

Much as I love my US and Ozzie Sparkfriends, I need still someone who understands what I mean when I say I eat penguins, keep my purse in my bag and walk on the pavement.

I joined SP at the start of the year, lost 7lbs relatively quickly and regained it in a trice when I hit a rough patch. I eat crisps, mope and mooch when I'm unhappy - none of those is a particularly pretty sight.

The pedometer is coming out again on June 1st, Mandy!

Look forward to talking to you all and I'll be back with my 'threes' later.

Best wishes

That said, you can see why weight loss is a challenge. However, i'll get thoroughly "booted and suited" as the locals say, and brace up all the painful bits and off i go! Below is a little about me.

Hello everyone!

Technically, like many others on here, I am also not new. But this time I am determined and I am new to this group so I thought a post on this board would be a good way of meeting you all and saying hello!

1. Reading (especially Stephen King)
2. Embroidery/handbag making
3. Video games (I'm addicted!) [as you can see, my hobbies mostly call for inactivity, and me to be sitting down, which is why I need to do extra exercise too, and probably why I have to be on this site in the first place!!!]

Three of my Pet peeves:
1. People who think they are better than others
2. Noisy eaters
3. Being woken up.

It's very nice to meet you all!

And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts."

It's never too late - never too late to start over, never too late to be happy.

Being defeated is often only a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent.

Joy comes from the inside out, not the outside in.

Today IS going to be a good day!

Happiness is not a station that you arrive at, but a manner of traveling.

' If you doing what you've always done, you will keep getting what you've always got'.

Welcome Julia, good to have you join us.

The Food issue can be awkward as its US based but you can 'Add Food' to customize or search the menus for 'members meals' put in. Have a play, more and more UK members are inputting meals/foods so it keeps giving better options to choose from. But when you find something remember to keep it in your 'Favourites' so you don't have to search for it again!!

You will be an expert at this before you know it - its addictive! Have fun while your travelling this road to success!

Hi Everyone,
I have joined spark people today - I am hoping to lose weight and get fit again. I am a bit of a couch potato so need plenty of motivation to 'get moving'. I go to a yoga class once a week and am hoping to join another exercise class as well as do some at home.
I also want to follow the menu planning for healthier eating - is there a uk version - I am not sure if I can get some of the stuff mentioned on the menu planner.
Look forward to hearing from others.
Julia

Hi Polly, You're going to do just great, especially if you consider this as a new LIFESTYLE and not a diet. All the help and support on Sparks is about permanent habits, it doesn't change or stop, unlike diets when as soon as you stop - on goes the weight!!

Good luck and enjoy the journey... emoticon

Hello Nicola, I'm sure we can be cool.... now how does that go?!!!

Get nosey and discover which teams motivate you and when you find it - log on every day and be accountable, the support is always here but you must log in to find it! You are going to do great, so enjoy the journey and finding that New You. emoticon

Hi All

I am from Telford, Shropshire. I have been on sparkpeople since January and still log in every weekday (rarely at weekends) to log my cals.

Unfortunately my weight is going to be on the increase as I am in my 8th week of pregnancy, but it is planned and well-awaited!!

Lovely to hear from you all. Kerry

It is great to know more about other team members - so tell everyone FIVE POSITIVE things about yourself, perhaps things that not many people realise! Come on - big yourself up!

1. I have a first class honours degree in History.
2. I love walking in the countryside and do it as much as I can.
3. I am very hardworking and determined - which I am now applying to losing weight.
4. I do things my own way - I always have to challenge the status quo and find my own methods.
5. I am a very positive person - and I like to spread it!
