Hello. I joined Sparkpeople awhile ago but don't check out the forums that often. I have lost 70 lbs since March and have about 130 more to go. It's a long hard journey but totally worth it! God is changing me, one day at a time.

I'm 40 and single and my real name is Wendy. :)

New to this board, need to lose literally half of myself. Have a blended family with a loving husband of just over a year, combined 5 kids and a dog.

Do not ask "is this good or bad...is this right or wrong for me?"...but instead ask "for where I want to be in the future, is this the WISE choice for me?"

"I have the right to do anything." you say - but not everything is beneficial. "I have the right to do anything" - but not everything is constructive. I Corinthians 10:23

Isn't it great that God's grace covers all our sin.

Keep in the word. God is always faithful even when we are not. It does not depend on what we do, but what Christ has done for us!!!

I love listening to praise music and now have downloaded a audio Bible I listen to often.

Hey everyone. I joined the team a few days ago but just wanted to introduce myself. I am Lindsey, 30 years old and single. I am starting my weight loss journey at 346lbs. I am not the best at posting and such on boards but I am looking to do it more for the added support. I am currently employed as a Program Director for adults with disabilities and LOVE my job. Currently I am reading 'Made to Crave" as part of my nighttime Bible study. A friend mailed it to me months ago and I read it, but did not really study it. So far I am seeing a difference this time around. God's Blessings!

I began this journey at 365. Now I'm about 275. I only have fifty pounds to go to reach my goal weight. Now my goal is to burn fat and add muscle. It's no longer about looks due to the fact I like the way I look now. It's about health and finishing what I started. With the help of my Lord I can do this.

My Rewards!

1. When i reach 260 pounds, I'm buying myself a Civil War Book from Amazon.

2. When I reach 250 pounds, I'm rewarding myself with a new outfit.

3. When I reach 235 pounds, I plan on going skydiving. I also plan on shouting for joy in Praise to Jesus no matter where I am at.

Welcome to the team. Congratulations on being in a courtship!!! I know that there are several books that helped me. "Made to Crave", "Reshaping It All", "PrayFit", and "Love to Eat, Hate to Eat". I was able to check them all out through my local library.

Hi Everyone! I am 28 years old. I have an 8 year old son, Tony, and a 4 year old daughter, Adrienne. I am attending Ashford University online. I am a school bus driver. I currently attend Harvest Bible Chapel. I am in a courtship with my wonderful man Mike who is 41 and a new Christian. I want to lose 115 lbs in 3 years. I just started today. I have tried dieting and stuff a lot of times before, but always give up after a week or two. I'm going to try and use God and my future as a motivation this time.

Hi Everyone! My name is Susan. I am a 45 year old stay-at-home-grandma! I live with my husband of 25 years, my 2 grown children and my 18 month old granddaughter. I began SP last month but blew it off for a couple of months. Some might say I found SP by a fluke but I believe it was an answer to prayer. I wanted to find the weight loss plan that God would show me and here I am. I hit my scary weight of 349 pounds (as of a Dr. appt. in March). I lost 18 pounds before I found SP and I have lost 12 pounds since I officially started. I look forward to meeting everyone. I need support, that is for sure. I know we all can do this. One step at a time. TEAM= Together Everyone Achieves More! emoticon

Hi all
My name is Ellen and I am a returning sparkpeople member. I left for a bit when I was feeling down about my lack of progress but quickly rejoined. Maybe I needed to have the feeling of a fresh start here.
I am a member of TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly)
And I also go to Celebrate Recovery where I am working on my food addiction issues
I am determinded to now start to move forward to a healthier lighter me. It is going to be a long road but by the grace of God and my family and friends to encourage me along I know I can do it.
When I fall I must remember there is nothing wrong with asking for help getting back up I don't have to do it on my own.
Have a wonderful day.

Smile God Loves You.

Hi, I'm Janet. I've been on SP about a week now. Yesterday I decided to actually do something with it. I did 10 minutes of cardio and about 20 of strength, none of it very well, but that isn't the point, is it? I'm 69 and my body is letting me know it is tired of holding me up. I've been reading your intros and you all seem like such nice caring people. I look forward to knowing you better and hopefully I can encourage you as you encourage me and we'll all end up healthier together. The funny thing is, I spent so much time playing with SP that I forgot to eat. I bet that won't happen very often. Well, I hope to hear from you, I've already met some of you at Over 60 with 100 pounds to lose. If you fit the criteria, let me invite you there as well. Nice bunch of folks. Guess I'd better go look into having something to eat. God bless you all. emoticon

Hi there! My name is Di and I live in PA. I'm starting my life over again...once again. In alot of ways....getting out of a bad marriage, moving back to PA from WI, and working very hard to get my health (I struggle with alot of health issues) under control. So I'm not dieting, but changing to a healthy life style....one little step at a time. My biggest mistakes are that I try to make huge changes, all at one time and then give up too quickly. So I am taking my time and making changes one step at a time. With God's help....I know I can do it!

Hello, Sparkfriends! My name is Stephanie, and I'm a 41-year old work-at-home-Mom living in the south with my husband of eighteen years and our two children. I recently reached my highest weight of 325 pounds, and I am now on my way to losing the weight and getting my life back. My husband and children deserve a happy, healthy wife and mother, and that's what I'm going to give them. I would love to add some new friends so we can help support each other! Good luck to you all and God bless!

Hello, my name is Debra and I started struggling with weight issues after the birth of my firstborn son 39 years ago. However I had more willpower back then and was able to count calories and exercise to maintain my weight. Then I lost that precious son when he was 17 years old and also lost all desire in diet and exercise. In those 21 years I gained 100 lbs but I know I can lose it all through my faith in Jesus Christ and the support of wonderful christian friends. I am so thankful to have found SparkPeople and I hope to be a supportive friend to everyone here.

Hello everyone!

My name is Marana and I've been a member of Spark for over a year but haven't really taken it seriously until now. I'm just now getting around to updating my info and joining some teams so I can get the encouragement I need to keep myself motivated.

I've been a Christian my whole life but have found myself getting increasingly closer to God recently. Life has been extremely hectic since November and it seems like the more I'm going thru, the stronger my relationship with God becomes. I'm determined to start treating my body the way God intended for me to - like the temple that He designed it to be. I'm excited to get my flesh to line up with my soul so that I can be the 'me' that God created me to be!

Hello, my name is debbie and I am 57yo. I lost over 100lbs with Sparkepople in 2007 kept if off for a couple years maybe 3 I cant remember nopw but then I decided to go back to college. Between fulltime school and fulltime work I have put most of it back on. I now have arthritis in my hip and need to have hip replacement surgery.

I am pretty limited and can't do much walking with being in extreme pain but I can swim. I got hooked on farmville while working night shift and would spend countless hours playing while mindlessly eating. I deleted the game a couple days ago and am back at Sparkpeople, ready to do this again. I need the support of the community and I know it is going to be much harder this time around. I am looking forward to the group and finding what options I have for chair exercises.

I used to food tracker today for the first time in years and tomorrow I will get my weight updated, I need to remember to get on the scales first thing in the morning.

I graduate from college in june and will be the first person in my family to have done this. It will be nice if i can get some of this darned weight back off and be able to walk up onto the stage to get that diploma I have worked so hard for.

Thank you for being here and I look forward to getting to know you.. many smiles to all of you,
debbie


I have started back here in Feb 2012 after putting some weight back on. I lost 114lbs here previously and I now know I need this community and the food tracker to keep me in check.

Welcome back Jill! We are so glad to have you back on our team.

My Name is Jill and I'm a Senior, but young at heart, who loves God and his Word and also needs to lose around 100 pounds. I actually left this Team about a year ago when I had to cut back but I missed it so re-joined again. I need all the inspiration and motivation I can get as my progress is pretty stuck right now. I'm thinking of joining WW for additional support and they do have a new good & healthy eating plan. I love Spark so never even considered leaving.

Hello everyone!

My name is Melinda--I'm not new to SparkPeople, but I am new to the team. Since I'm a Christian with over 100 pounds to lose, I thought I fit the bill, eh?

I'm a SAHM of two little children and weight has ALWAYS been a problem for me. But, SparkPeople has really helped me make progress.

Hi, my name is Ravyna. I just found you from another team where MOMFAN you made a post about a letter to Abby shopping for different Christian qualities. I really liked it. I joined SP in June/July. At that time my goal was to loose around 100 lbs, so I think I still qualify for this team. I have lost 27 lbs since the beginning of the year. I want to walk this walk with other Christians. I am in several Christian teams, but I think that I can never surround myself with enough fellow believers. You can visit my page to find out more about me. Glad to have found you.

How exciting to have you join our team. But more exciting to welcome you into the family of God. Obviously you live in Australia. I have always wanted to visit there. I had some online stamping friends from there many years ago, but have lost touch with them over time. Please let us know how we can help, support and encourage you. .

Hi all,
I'm relatively new to the two things this group is all about! I've just started on my weight loss journey and I've just started my relationship with the Lord.
Im doing my best and am excited about both!
I turn 30 in April next year which party plans are already under way and for which I'm hoping I will be considerably lighter at.
The ultimate goal is to go from 130 kgs at 11 Dec 2011 to 75kgs at Christmas 2012 all the time building my relationship and walking with God.
2012 is going to be an exceptional year!

Hi there,

My name is Bonny and I live in Beaverton, OR. I have been overweight my whole life and have recently hit a number (300) I never thought I would. I will be 50 in three and 1/2 years. My goal is to lose 150 pounds in that time, Hence my user name, I want to be 150 by 50. I have an awesome husband, very supportive, and three great sons, 18, 17 and 14. They are getting pretty self sufficient so I have no excuses left, I have time to take care of myself. I recently took a weight management class which just reinforced what I already know, there are not shortcuts or quick tricks. I just have to eat less and exercise more. I also know I need the accountability and support. I have belonged to TOPS in the past but having a meeting once a week is not always easy for me to get to. I have belonged to SPARK people about 3 years ago and loved the support. So, here I am again and looking foward to making some lifelong changes and getting healthier. I look foward to getting to know all of you.

Hi, I'm Kristy
I just found this team! :) I'm starting over again, I'm at the highest weight I've ever been and miserable about it. I'm taking responsibility for the choices I've made and seeking God's guidance to get where I need to be and that is taking care of this body He's given me.
I am 43, married with 3 grown children so it's just DH and I at home. I work in behavioral health and hope to finish my degree in psychology asap and will work toward having my own practice in family counseling. I'm looking to motivate and be motivated :)

Commit to the Lord, whatever you do and your plans will succeed. Proverbs 16:3

Hi Everyone! My name is Laurie and I will be 42 on Saturday. I have a 7-year old cat who is my joy and a 2 year old nephew who has my heart. In fact, I have been given the best birthday present ever -- the whole day with him. I'm so excited.

I look forward to getting to know everyone.

Welcome Sara, thanks for introducing yourself. Congrats on taking control of your life while you are young. God is right there willing to help us, but we have to commit our healthy habits to Him on a daily basis and then listen to the promptings of the Holy Spirit. You will do this!

Hi everyone!
My name is Sara, I'm 21 from Wisconsin. At this moment, I'm a college student and loving it! I just recently started working out again and loving how I feel after the fact. One thing that I know is that I will not be able to do this without God, He will always be put first in this. With all the success that I have, I will give God the glory!
