Hey all! Greetings and hope you are enjoying your first few days, weeks here on Sparks! Sorry I've been so long in checking in. Have been having a few crisis' in my life. What is so amazing is that with the healthy habits I have learned, I am no longer turning to food for comfort! Woo HOO! I am so glad that you have joined this site, it has helped me immeasurably in my weight loss journey and is ideal for moms with little time to go to a gym. All my weight loss and exercises have been done at home in my living room, or running in our neighborhood. NO need for expensive equipment or club fees.

Good luck and God bless
Ramona

Isn't that great? I think that, for me, anyway, it's because I'm now aware of what goes in my mouth. I'm more likely to skip it if I know I will have to write it down later!

HI Guys,
I began last week and I am just getting used to the site. I have just over 100lbs to lose so have a long way to go but I am a week in and finding that I am cooking more food than I have for years, which can only be a good thing!

It's always a little scary/exciting to start something new like this. It's good to know that I'm not the only one feeling these emotions. Good luck to us all!

Hi, my name is Jenna and I am a single mom of 3 boys: 14, 9 and 4. I have about 15 pounds I wish to be rid of, but just can't seem to get it to disappear. I take care of the kids, but not really me. I started an exercise bootcamp, which I absolutely love, so I have exercise down, but eating not. I look forward to making new friends in this process and I definitley would love someone to tell me to "knock it off" when I just eat to eat and eat carbs all day long (it happens). emoticon

Hi, all: It's great to see so many people making progress with the life changes that make a difference.

I just found this site last night and am starting out. I was sick with a rare disorder since February and was put on prednisone, which I finally got off of just last month. I am starting to exercise again for the first time in all that time. I used to run, rock climb, and take ballet classes. Now I am back in beginning ballet and boy, is it a struggle!

I put on close to 20 pounds in the time I was sick, and will greatly appreciate the support this site and its members offer. I will also do my best to be supportive of all of you! I'm so happy to see so many people caring about your health. I want to tell you, go for it while you've got it, and treat your bodies with all the love you can muster, because you just don't know what the future holds. Now is the time!

Thanks, and I am so glad to be here,

Leha

Hi there! So far I love this site. I have been doing some home exercise (DVDs and walking) and trying to watch what I eat for about the last 3 months, but it just isn't working. I knew I needed to find some support!
I have a 10 month old daughter and it isn't easy to get out to a gym or weight loss clinic. That is why I think Spark is giong to work great for me!!!
I already feel stronger!
Best of luck to everyone! Hopefully we can all be of help to each other!!

Hey new members, welcome to Spark People. There are a number of great tools available on this site that will definitely help you with your quest. Do use the nutrition tracker, it is essential to help you see what you are eating and to figure out how you need to adjust your diet. It was quite an eye opener for me! There are a lot of good resources and articles to help you learn more about your body and how to get it as healthy and fit as you can. Please let us know if you have any questions.

Hi Team! I'm Paige. I started Spark People in April of 2007 and have lost just over 65 pounds. Having tried many weight loss methods and failing, I am excited the I have found success with Spark People. I am half way to my first major goal and I know that I will reach it.

Personally, I am married with a step-daughter(16), step-son(13), son(3) and son(16 months). I live in Indianapolis where I work with adults who are blind or visually impaired. I have found that tracking my food and exercising with friends has helped me on my weight loss journey.

I can't wait to find out about all of you! If you have any questions or need help, please feel free to let me know :)

Getting healthy so that I can love my boys for a long time :)

Hi Team, my name is Frannie and I have been with Spark People for 7 months. I have lost 50 lbs. with a few more to go to reach my first goal. I love the resources available on Spark People and Spark Teams like this have been crucial to my loss. I have been able to achieve a much healthier lifestyle because of Spark People, I hope to help you do the same.

I have 3 grown children 2 girls 26 and 24(the older one is getting married next September) and a son who is 22, and have been married for 27 years. I live in the Chicago area and work in a school district as a Technology Support Specialist, I help teachers integrate technology into their lessons and keep everything running. I love my job and the opportunity to teach both adults and children. I walk a lot for exercise, I do Pilates and Walk Away the Pounds videos. Now go to the Introduce yourself thread and let us know something about you.

I am excited to be a co-leader for this team, if you have any questions please feel free to ask!

Hey team. My name is Ramona. I've been with Spark People for about 2 years. In that time I've lost over 50 lbs and have successfully kept the weight off for the past 6 months. I have learned to use this site's resources to their fullest extent and love to lead and participate in challenges.

I have two small children and am currently living in St. Petersburg, Russia where my husband and I are working with, and serving in a local church. The winters here are long and hard so I have had to come up with creative exercises like running up and down the stairs in our apartment building. Burns a lot of calories and gives me great looking legs :). Enough of me, I would love to get to know you better.

Any questions you may have, please feel free to ask and we as your team leaders will do our best to answer.
