Bismillah.

As salaamu alaikum all sisters.

Happy to be a part of this team. I am a revert to Islam for about 2 years now. I have a big weight loss goal, but I believe I can do it, in shaa Allah. Please feel free to add me as a friend or contact me if you ever need anything, including a cheerleader as I'm good at that. emoticon

I'm Chris, I'm 59, divorced, have three adult daughters who have all married and gone their own way, and I was born into a lapsed Christian family. I have finally, after 4 years of reading about Islam, decided that Islam is for me. It was a huge decision to make, well, it felt huge to me, but once I decided that this is the path I wish to travel, suddenly I knew beyond the shadow of a doubt that it is the right decision.

I live in a small town in country Australia, a town which doesn't encourage or welcome change of any kind, and so far as I know, I will be the only Muslim here. Daunting, I admit. Scary? Definitely. I well remember a lot of people's attitudes towards some young Islamic university students who managed to find temporary work in a meat processing plant here in town. Not good. Am I going to let this stop me following through on my decision? No. But nor am I am not going to parade up and down the main street declaring "I am a Muslim!' I will take things slowly, quietly, and eventually when I feel I have learned enough to answer any critics, possibly including friends and neighbours, then I will let them know of my faith.

I discovered through Islam Australia a contact number for advice on Islam (obviously), and it took me a few days to gather enough courage to call that number. I don't know what I expected, maybe to be told that no, I was not welcome perhaps? The man who took my call was so kind, so welcoming. He is coming with his sister in law to visit me tomorrow afternoon, and they are going to bring a copy of the Quran for me, plus a lot of printed information which will explain what I need to know as a new Muslim. His sister in law will then spend some time with me answering any questions I feel more comfortable asking another woman.

I am nervous, I'm excited, and I was trying to work out what that feeling was similar to, earlier today. Do you remember when you were about to leave home for your first day in your first ever job? You couldn't wait to begin, but there was still that nagging worry that you wouldn't measure up. That is exactly how I feel. The difference is that I know deep within me that this is the best decision I have ever made in my entire life!

Sorry about such a long introduction, but this is the first time I have been able to talk (ok, type) about my decision. The more I write, the more sure I am. I just hope that I can ask my sisters here on this team for any advice I may need.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I'll post an update in the appropriate place on the team pages. Bye for now.
Chris.

AOA,

I am excited to join this team but it seems that it is not as active, inshallah we will make it active so other sisters can join us.
I started my weight loss from December 2012 and upto now I have lost a total of 32 lbs and I have another 70 to go.
Stopping my cultural food and junk has been the key to success for me and will inshallah continue.

it is easy to cover up all the extra lbs in hijab for now but inshallah I will have control over my nafss and will not gave up on it.

wish you all best of luck.

Also, I am looking for a sister to team up with me so we can battle this challenge. anyone interested, pls msg me.
wassalam

Assalamu alaikum sister

My name is Saghira. I was looking for a team that I could join to have the support that I need inorder to lose weight and masha'allah I found this group.

Eat and drink, but not excessively. (Quran: 7:31)

" The Tribe of Adam fill no container worse than the way in which they fill their stomachs. Let the Tribe of Adam just have a few mouthfuls to strengthen the loins. If possible, one third of the stomach is for food, one third for drink, and one third for one's breath." (Prophet Muhammad)

" Health is a crown on the heads of the healthy that only the sick can see."

Assalamu alaykum warahmatullah,

Ma sha Allah! I am sooooooo excited to find this team. I have been on spark since January, can't believe I just found it today! I am a mum to two boys and my main goals for joining spark are to make exercising a regular habit, loose some weight and especially would love to loose my belly bump. Alhamdulillah lost about 12pounds already but my tummy is hardly bulging! If one has experience with what works, do share!!
I have been a Muslim all my life, and have been living in the USA for about 4yrs now so @chastityjoe, I can totally relate to what you said. I added you as a spark friend. I hope you meet your goals insha Allah, and everyone too!

I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I posses tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous... ..Goethe

Asalaamu alaikum,
I am also 33 years old. My weight has bounced up and down (never as down as I'd like) for the last six years. I have one son who is 12. He is also trying to lose weight. I've finally decided to get up and do it--no excuses. I'm a student so, I probably won't be on very often. However, I will weigh in every Wednesday and pop in whenever I can. I need motivation and support. Insha Allah, I'll get it here on SP.

Tomorrow never dies.

I am a 33 year old mother of three. I became muslim in 1998 when i married my husband. My husband is arab and we live in Jordan. I am american but i live in jordan. It has been a very difficult change. I can speak arabic although not as well as my kids and they are always laughing at me. I love islam and i am truly blessed with my friends and family. it has been a very hard struggle living on the other side of the world and i have been very lonely at times. I gained a lot of weight after the birth of my second child. I was very sad and lonely and i stayed at home and ate. So i know weigh 200 pounds i was 237 but i lost 37 pounds on my own last year. i am very happy that I have found Sparkpeople. It seems so great. I workout everyday so anyone who would like to be my buddy or get to know me my arms are wide open to welcome you. Just add me.

Salams, hope all of you are doing great. I am new to sparks people and am looking for a buddy.
InchaAllah someone who is committed to working out everyday, and is trying to lose a lot of weight.

Salam Alaiykum sisters :O)
I am 34, married to an Egyptian, have a 20 month old daughter and work full time. I converted to Islam in Sept 2006 with the support of my now husband, Allhamdullilah. I am not strong in my faith, and I am hoping my weight loss journey will help me grow spiritually, mentally and physically.
My husband is supportive, but he is also an enabler because he doesn't like to see me unhappy, and he knows I am happy when I EAT!
Looking forward to getting to know my sisters here.

I'm striving for an overall healthier (and happier) lifestyle. I'm a busy-bodied college student and in the last few years have lost touch with the great feeling simply being fit can give someone. My goal is to get that feeling back.

I joined this group because 2011 a monumental year. I learned much about myself and grew as a person; part of this was growing spiritually. I'd always been iffy about religion because I'd never truly "felt" it. I found myself with a copy of the Qur'an one day and it was as if a feeling of rightness instantly found my heart. Since then I've been exploring the religion and think I've found what was missing in that part of my life.

Sister Stacy, it is always so good to "meet" someone who can relate. Though there were times I wasn't sure now I do know it is best. It is especially difficult to be a Muslim in the South.

Assalamu Alaikum Sisters! I am Barb and I reverted to Islam in 2003. I truly feel that it was the best decision I made for myself although there have been a few times I have doubted my decision but, I have no more doubts.

I am so glad that there is a group here at SP for Muslimahs!! I look forward to getting to know all of you.

Assalamu Alaikum,

I've made a few posts already but here's a little about me. I'm 31. I started studying Islam in about 2008 and reverted in 2010. I will soon be single...I've always carried a few extra pounds but mostly stayed in a good range. Within the last 2-3 years I have gained weight and struggled more than ever. I want to get healthy so that inshAllah when I'm blessed with a good husband I will be healthy to have children since I'm already 31. My doctor wanted me to lose 30 pounds and I've lost 10 since I've seen her. (I had already lost a little before I had saw her). I also want to develop good eating habits so I can be a good example for my children (if/when I have them.)

Assalamu Alaikum Sisters. I have joined this group hoping to get some motivation from some sisters about serious weight loss. I am 26 yrs, soon to be 27. I have 3 children 5 yr girl, 2.5 yr boy, and 10 mth old girl Alhamdulilah. My son is in Egypt with my husband's family learning arabic. I am currently 235 pounds or 106.6 KG my highest weight was 247 or 112 KG as of April 2011. Going to Egypt for 5 weeks made me drop 10 pounds and when i came back to the states, i lost another 2 doing 30 day shred at home, and watching my calories. This weight loss thing has been very hard. I am a stay at home mom, and though active, i don't exercise much and i usually don't watch my calories. I didn't gain any weight during Ramadan Alhamdulilah although i thought i may have because my intentions was fasting NOT watching my weight but Alhamdulilah still maintained. Before i married i was 180 pounds and i thought i was fat.. and wanted to lose weight but 3.5 mths after marriage became pregnant and to be honest i didn't gain much weight during my pregnancies and always lost whatever i gained through being active, and nursing. My biggest thing is when i get stressed i reach for junk food. I don't overeat, but instead of eating healthy meals i instead snack on junk most days. I would say i am a comfort eater. Cakes, cookies, pies, candies, and anything sweet are what i would rather eat then actual fuel for my body. I am tried nearly all day, so i drink coffee (3-5 cups) to stay alert. Also when i become really tired, even coffee can't keep me awake and i can NOT drive if i am feeling tired, and usually pass out wherever i am sitting. It is very difficult to stay awake when i am this tired, and usually if hubby is not home i increase the caffeine intake as i have passed out and not even heard my daughter crying subhanAllah.I never heard of this before. I am 5'8" and should weigh between 150-175 and i am not extremely over weight (at least i don't think so) i wear a size 20 and though i am large i carry my weight through out my entire body, but mostly in the stomach region because of my kids. I would really like to lose weight to be healthy, and more energetic, and to live a more active lifestyle. I am giving myself 1 year to lose this weight, and inshAllah with some support and motivation i can do it.

Salam Aleykom and Ramadan Kareem :).

I'm Madiha, 22 and Egyptian/American. I live in Egypt and study broadcasting at university. I've always had a bit of a weight problem, but I'd give anything to be how I was in my teens, even though then, I thought I was really fat (boy, I was wrong)! Ive been diagnosed with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) and am on Hormone Replacement Therapy, I also spent two years on anti-depressants and anti anxiety medication, which did noticeably make me gain 5-10 kg.
I went to visit the states last year and well...Hometown buffet with my girlfriend took it's toll on me! hehe. When I came back I was the heaviest I've ever been. Which was 79. I'm now 71.5 el hamd lilah. It's not much of a loss over 9 months but it stayed off so far. I'm now working to go down to at least 62 before my Nikaah after Eid, hopefully insha Allah! My long term goal is to rid myself of PCOS and insulin resistance. I also want sexy abs hehe. Love and Peace :)

Assalaamu alaikum Sisters, My name is Halema. I am married with 5 children. 4 girls and 1 boy MashaAllah. I was morbidly obese after gaining weight with each pregnancy and never losing before getting pregnant again. I decided to start getting healthy when I started having blood pressure issues. I have so far lost 92 pounds in 2 yrs with 20 more pounds to lose. I want you to know that it is better to lose the weight slowly and incorporate exercise as part of your lifestyle along with eating healthy. I work full time as a case manager, but I make it a point to exercise 6-7 days a week and I am training for a half marathon that I will participate on October 17th. I want to stress that it is very important that we take care of our bodies so as to prevent future complications that can occur with being severly overweight. We have to take care of ourselves in order to take care of our families. I struggled with a lot of guilt when I went to the gym to exercise. I realize though that 1 hour a day for me to exercise is something I have to sacrifice in order to get my health back. I am happy to have joined this group and I am working on trying to become better spiritually and to use my weight loss to be a better servant to Allah. InShaAllah, I am striving hard to balance worshipping, family , working and exercise but it is so hard to do. I am hoping I can get encouragement from my sisters in islam.

Assalamu alaikum sisters!

Ummm...I'm really not sure if I already introduced myself. I signed up and then disappeared so if I am repeating myself, I appologize.

My name is Nichole. I converted to Islam almost 5 years ago Alhumdulilah. I am trying to lose about 20 pounds by July 15th inshallah.

May Allah help us all reach our goals, ameen.

Salaam!

As salam alaikum,

I'm new to this site, and alhamduillah, have discovered your group. Allah,swt, has recently guided me to starting a fitness program. I gained weight over the past 4 years, and will turn 50 soon. I joined sparkpeople in order to learn more about fitness and to follow their videos. May Allah, swt, guide us all to lead healthy lifestyles and take care of His gift to us, our bodies.

ASA, My name is Fatima-nickname Faye. I'm 21 and new to the team. I've gone down the weight loss path many times before and always gave up after the first couple of days. I would set crazy goals and took an all or nothing approach. Needless to say, it didn't work :P This time around, I'm taking a more holistic approach to this journey, alhamdulilah. I finally realize its more than watching the numbers go down on the scale; It's about shedding bad lifestyle habits and replacing them with healthier and smarter ones. I'm also taking it one small goal at a time. For starters, I wanted to incorporate going to the gym in my life. I've gone 5 days a week for the past two weeks. One more week and I'll consider it a habit. :)

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

Salaam alaikum sisters! I took shahada two years ago and have found Islam has brought me peace in my life. In addition to diet and exercise, one of my goals is to better maintain my salat. I know that it brings me a greater sense of order and calmness to my day. My main struggle is getting up and making wudu and praying on time. I do well with the early prayers but maghrib and ishaa are sooo hard for me!

Assalamu alaikum sisters,

My name is Nichole and I am a convert to Islam of 4 years alhumdulilah. I met my husband shortly after converting and I gained weight after discovering the joy of Arabic food. I recently packed on more weight after traveling to Jordan to study arabic.

I hope that you all are having a blessed Ramadan inshallah.

Salaam Sisters!

I am new to SparkPeople and very excited about the idea of becoming a better, healthier me insha'Allah. I am pleased to meet all of you and excited to start this new journey.

I was severely underweight several years ago, and these days I am overweight. Can't seem to find a happy medium. But I am hoping that finding a balance with food will improve my overall health as well as improve my relationship with food.

I have never exercised so I am starting new with that too. I am going to follow this program, tracking calories as well as exercise and see how it goes. I am around 190 lbs. right now... don't know how I got there so quickly. But I am working to get to around 140 (or less) by my Birthday: May 5th in 2011, so that leaves a lot of time for mistakes.

Take care

Salaams ladies!

I joined Spark People two years ago and did join the other teams for Muslimas. It's sad to see that they are inactive, but to take responsibility for my lack of activity, I had utilized the nutrition tracking and fitness tools but did not visit team pages often. I would definitely like to meet sisters in this group!

I took my time when I first joined, and kind of forgot about SP. When I finally decided to really commit in January 2009 my initial weight 196 pounds. From January to June I had lost 5 pounds. After meeting up with an old friend who encouraged me to go on I got to 168 in December and then fell off the wagon. I didn't get back up to my original weight but floated between 172-175 pounds. Now I am re-energized. I am aiming to lose between 20-25 pounds by the end of this year.

My starting weight as of July 5th was 173.5 I hope to lose eight pounds before the start of Ramadan. Though summers are hard I still aim to keep active during Ramadan - hopefully not gain back and maybe lose a little weight (maybe 2 pounds). It is nice to meet you all and I hope I can be supportive and encourage you all towards our individual and collective goals.

Salam. Just joined this group today - joines SP early this year, I think in February. I just want to lose mere 4, 5 kg from my current weight, aiming 50kg for my petite 5ft 2". So far, my weight just yoyo-ing increase and decrease 1kg, haha. Planning to do my Hajj with my family - parents, aunties from both parents' side, brother, sis in-law, insyaAllah emoticon The only thing terrify me about going Hajj is if I don't do enough prayers, recite Al-Quran, etc - all those things that encouraged to do while in Makkah, Arafah, Mina, Madinah. Oh, and walk in the 2km tunnel towards Jamrahs emoticon

Asalamu Alaikum Everyone

New to the team-- have lurked on SP on and off for a number of years but am just only realising how great and useful all these tools are....

I'm a post graduate student- struggling to finish to finish my thesis, trying to come out of a damaging relationship, and mother to a beautiful 9 year old girl.

Taking care of yourself is not selfishness-- becoming the best that you can is a form of jihad...

Asalamu Alaikum!!

I'm not new to spark people, I was on almost two years ago when I was trying to lose weight for a baby. Alhamdulliah my baby girl is here, and all the pounds I gained with her!!! She's nine months old so I can't really call it newborn weight.;) InshAllah hoping I can get a little support and motivation, seeing how that's my downfall!!!

Assalm Alikum Sisters!

I am an old head here just been MIA for so long. Been through a lot of emotional roller coasters w/i the last yr. Inshallah it is on and popping and the weight will come off w/ Allahs help.

Well to tell you a little about myself. I'm 1 of the founding members of this group. A sister name Umm Zeinab & I were the 1st 2 members. So its been about 3yrs now. I had lost 60lbs, but unfortunately w/ stress gained it all back plus 20 more. So i am getting back on track. tracking my food and exercising. Inshallah I will make it my intentions to post everyday even if its only to say Hi.

Well I am about to head to bed

See ya
Mo

FOREVER FORWARD NEVER BACKWARDS

MASHALLAH!!
Never in my life dreamed to meet such a team!What a wonderful community!I'm Enas.37 years old single muslimah.I'm a lazy person,my greatest hobby is reading.I don't like to exercise,I do it because I want to achieve my weight goal.My only motive is to be honest and not to post that I walked 10000 steps when I really walked 2000,or drank 8 cups when I really drank 3.
Please don't mind my weak language since English is not my native language.If you still reading till this line THANK YOU for your patience!

Asalaamu alaikum,
I'm looking for some support in my effort to lose 80-100 pounds. I haven't made a page for myself yet, but I will insha Allah. I'm plan to weigh in every Wednesday and follow the sparkpeople meal plan. We'll see how it goes.

Thanks for your support. But sadly for the last week I have been at a dead stand still in my weight loss. The newness of the diet wore off and so did my kids patience. Mom I want Ice cream. Mom Lets make cake. Mom Me and my friend made cookies at her house from scratch, you have to try a little. My husband who is very patient, but after a month and a half he is starting to slip in hints. Sweet heart is as been sooooo long since we have had your wonderful Nehari and Fresh Naan. AHHH My favorite food. How can he tempt me with my favorite food.

Everyone wants to be supportive but it is not that easy when they are all hungry and my husband is soo skinny sometimes I am afraid he will wash down the sink drain. So the last thing he needs is to have only low calorie foods. And my kids are also bean poles. I am still doing good at exercising. And I am not gaining. But I am not loosing either. Any advice.
And I wish eating fruit and vegis was enough. I end up like a rabid chip munk. And when the crisper is empty and the fruit bowl is nothing but cores and peels. I am grabbing for the High calorie breads and rice just to make me feel full.

Asalamu Alaikum

Hi All. My name is Aisha and I joined few days ago and I have replied to a couple of posts but I have yet to introduce my self. Like many I have seen on here I am a Revert/convert to Islam. I found Islam when I was going through a real rough patch in my life(abusive marriage) I met a Muslim family (Palistinian) and to be honest I was a little jealous of how functional their family was while all around me American families were just a mess(I am not saying this is the rule, but it is my experience). Out of curiosity I started studying Islam and eventualy converted and divorced my ex. That was when I was just 30. I am now 41 and About as happy as a person can be. A few years later I met and married my husband. He is Pakistani and a really nice man and we have one of those Extremely Happy Functional marriages I used to dream of mashAllah.

I have 2 children who are now entering those teen years 12 and 14. We homeschool and spend a good deal of time in Islamic studies. My kids are great and happy MashALLAH.

I went to Hajj in Dec 2008 (Alhumdulillah, this was the best experience of my life)but at the time I went I was overweight, no sorry in reality, I was Obese. The result was that the extra weight and walking up to 15 miles a day, I began having knee problems and developed bone spurs on my heals. So I got it in my mind to loose the weight and do better for the sake of Allah(SWT) But sadly my return and drama in regards to the Masjid where I am very active only made the situation worse and By December I was 198 (I am short)

In December I made some serious changes that reduced my stress. And I began a weight loss program. Since Dec I have lost 23 pounds. I just found this site because my weight loss has just began to slow to a crawl and I am looking for support buddies and Ideas on how to mix it up and begin loosing again.
