Hi all

I'm an aussie girl, but I currently live in Denmark. I met a lovely tall danish viking boy on the internet and ended up marrying him....which was nice. I've been here now for just over a year and still miss Oz like nothing else emoticon

I like heavy metal music. I have tattoos, facial piercings and a propensity to swear a lot. I sing, draw, paint and write and generally do all those arty farty type things.

Been on SP now for a while, but have just started to get back into the whole thing again and figured that having some comunity contact might help me stay more focused.

Cheers

Lee

Hello. I joined Sp way back in March then promptly moved somewhere that didn't provide internet access!! Well I'm back now, and really excited to be a part of this community. I hope all is well with everyone.

My name is Sondra and I am from Kansas. I joined SparkPeople on March 5th. When I joined, I didn't want to be a member of any teams - but now that I've been a part of SparkPeople for awhile I can see how much they help. A friend of mine told me about SparkPeople and I thought to myself - this will be entertaining for a week or so and then I'll move on to something else. But I'm still here. I've learned a lot! I've lost about 7 pounds so far and several inches. I'm eating healthier and exercising more. And it feels great! A little bit about me - I'm married to an absolutely wonderful man and we have 4 boys ranging in age from 12 to 21. I am lucky to be a stay-at-home Mom. It is the best job in the world!

Hi!
I have now been with Spark for 4 weeks! emoticon
So far I've lost 5 lbs! I'm no stranger to dieting. I've been on Weight Watchers and eDiet three times each. This time I'm planning on making permanent change so that I will stay healthy. The change will prevent diabetes and cause my fibromyalgia to nearly disappear.

I am 39 and I want to be fit @ 40. I have a 19 year old daughter in college and a 15 year old son who attends the high school where I teach English. My hubby is a retired teacher.

I hope that all of us will sparkle and shine!

Thank you!

Hi!
I'm Kate and I'm 35.
I have an 18 month old daughter and a 7 yr old son. My hubby is a firefighter.
I've been doing Spark for 4 weeks.
I started with 52 pounds to lose and so far I've lost 11 pounds!
My first goal is to get under the 200 mark and I'm just 6 pounds away from that!

I'm doing well tracking my food and exercise~ I really thrive on the accountability and structure of it all.
I'm working on getting that exercise in. Yesterday I took off on my walk which is normally 30 minutes and almost 2 miles~ but this time I felt GREAT doing 4 miles and 1 hour!
I guess that's a lot easier to do without those extra 11 pounds I've been carrying around...and it'll only get easier the more I lose!
Off to exercise now if baby cooperates!

Hi, My name is Vicki. Im from Seaford, Delaware. I will be the dreaded 40 in July. I have 6 kids. 3 boys (20, 13, and 2), 2girls (18 and 14), and a stepdaughter (15). I like you Bestgigi, had lost weight quickly. I had lost 13 pounds in my 1st month without exercise and now have been at the same weight give or take a couple ounces. So I guess now I too have to start exercise. Yuck! Looking forward to having fun, meeting new people, and losing the pounds. emoticon emoticon

Hi, I'm Maria. I started at the beginning of March, for the 2nd time. The last time i started Sparks, I wasn't committed enough to stick with it. But this time is different. I just moved to NY and started working. I am looking forward to dropping the 40 extra lbs that I have gained since college. My problem is that I get stuck at 166 and then can't lose any more...hopefully Sparks can help me figure out what's not working!

Hi I joined sparks people at the beginning of March, I did great my first week, lost 3.8lbs and then went away the following weekend gained .6 and this week I lost only .2. Very discouraging. I love looking at the success of so many people on sparks people, I hope to get my act together and be an inspiration to everyone soon.

Hi, I join last week at the constant urging of my children. So, here I am. I have been yo-yo-ing my entire adult life. I am ready to finish this little game and get on with life! I lost quite a bit at first, but have been holding steady for about 6 weeks now. Up a pound, down a pound. I think it's time to pull out the big guns... the dreaded EXERCISE. I look forward to learning from you all.

Hi, I'm ready to lose all this extra me I've recently obtained and gain a new life style. I'm in dallas tx., three kids, hub, and a job with kids.
Short and sweet, but I am looking for a buddy and I'm not picky. I feel like I need someone other than hub to report to. He's seen it all and is understandably discouraged for me. So hit me back if you're interested.

I recently found this quote and purpose to live my life by it.

Hi everyone!! I just started SparkPeople for the first time and I am still checking out all the info available. I really think that this is just what I have been looking for. Looking forward to learning more and meeting new people. I am almost 40 (in Aug.) and needing to get a grip on my weight so that I can enjoy many more years with my husband of 20 years and my girls who are 20, 13, and 12.

Hi, I'm hopeful and I started SP at the beginning of March. I am on here with my mom, ms_mayzee. So far this has been a great experience for both of us. I am 27, married, and have a 9 month old baby boy. I am trying to not only lose my pregnancy weight, but I had some extra pounds before I became pregnant. I want to create a better lifestyle for myself and my family. Also, I havent worn shorts or a bathing suit outside of my house in years. I would like to feel comfortable doing both.

Hi everybody. I'm 27 and I live in Texas, and this is my second time losing this weight. I lost it all on Weight Watchers a year and a half ago, and then I gained it back because I drank too much. I have to be honest. :)

I've been running for the last couple of months, trying to get back in shape, and now I'm ready to diet again. I wanted to do a real calorie counting program this time, because WW encouraged me to eat too much fake, low-calorie crap. I'm trying to eat real food now -- more calories, but less of them.

Good luck everybody. :)

Hi...I'm Kira and I am starting over once again. I just joined this team in the hopes of getting a bit of encouragement/motivation.

I've just set some goals and at this moment in time am dedicated to reaching them. Sadly, the depression and sheer apathy tend to take over. I hope that some of you will kick me in the backside once in a while, even though I KNOW I have to do it on my own. Support doesn't hurt, right?

Hello Everyone!
I am 32 years old working mom who is trying to get healthy so my son doesn't learn any of my "bad" eating habits! I absolutely love this site! I have been a member for a few days now, and I am absolutely hooked. I don't have a local support group so I am so happy that we are all in this together!
I am really trying to focus on incorporating healthier eating and exercise habits, and not just go on another "fad" diet. I want my son to be proud of his fab, hip mama!
Good luck everyone! We're gonna do it! emoticon

Hello from a chilly Massachusetts!
My name is Lisa and I just found this site 2 days ago and I'm hooked! I work for a private school and am the assistant to the food service director there. She is a licensed dietician and I was able to show her this site! It felt great to pass this wealth of information on to her.

Anyway, I need to make some life long changes...for myself and my family. I have two daughters (14 and 12) and I don't want them being all hung up on their bodies, so I feel like I need to be setting a good and healthy example for them.

I'm looking forward to great success here...I feel that with such supportive people and all these fabulous tools there is no reason why that cannot happen.

Hi everyone,

I'm Shannon from the Pacific Northwest. I'm a writer, pastor's wife and mother of two (son 18; daughter 12).

Last year I lost 30 lbs on Weight Watchers, but we've recently decided to use that $40/month for a membership to the Y. Good move, but you wouldn't believe how sore I am right now. :)

I saw a segment on the TODAY show about SP and thought it sounded great, so here I am. I've got 45 lbs to lose.

I can't stay off the site--which is a problem, because I have so much work to do! That's the bad thing about writing. I'm on my laptop all day long, but the internet is so darn appealing. :)

Hello fellow SP classmates!
I found SP through a friend who was directed here by her trainer. She couldn't stop talking about her waterglass icon and how it helped her increase her water intake. So I stopped in and found out that SP is tons more than the water glass (although the glass is kinda cool). Like others who've introduced themselves this week, I'm good at planning but not so excellent at follow through. This is going to change. At the beginning of the year I realized I wasn't eating, exercising or living with intention and from past experience, I knew that my weight and my life would spiral out of control if I kept the status quo. I'm at the heaviest I've ever been, so now I am very motivated.
SP is teaching me to pay attention to what I eat, how I exercise and what my goals are. I think planning short-term goals (step by step!) will really help keep me motivated.
I have 93 pounds to lose and a whole lot of races to finish! I'm planning to train for and complete a 5k open water swim, a 100 mile bike ride and a sprint triathlon this year. I think I've found the supportive community that will help me all along the way.

Like all of you, I am looking to slim down a little bit. I could go on and on about how I gained this extra weight, but there are no excuses... I'm too big and want to make a change. I am trying to conceive my first child, so I want to be as fit as possible before my pregnancy starts. With luck, I will have to leave you all and join babyfit.com! But, in the meantime, I need lots of support in keeping myself active!

Also, just a little note to Amy (PARROTHEADAMY) -- wishing you best of luck TTC. My best friend also has PCOS and just delivered her first. Plenty of baby dust to you!

Hi, I'm a 27 year old studying in Europe for another year or so. I too have to add a lot of foods myself, but I'm managing.
I have never been 'slim', but until a couple of years ago I wasn't doing so badly. Studying here has really taken its toll on me, but I hope to remedy that and become healthier than I've been in a long time.
Cheers all!

Hello. My name is Danielle. I am almost 23 and have 25-30 pounds to lose. I am physically active, I go to the gym 5 days a week. But when it comes to eating, I eat way too much. I am a poster child for emotional eating. I am here to gain support so I can get my eating in check!

Wow, looks like I'm the "old Lady" of the group. tee hee!! I'm 48, got re-married in 2006. Have 2 kids of my own ages 15 and 20, and 6 step-kids all grown up. I have a VERY blended family. I started putting on weight during my first marriage when things started getting stressful (about 1993). About a year ago I got serious about losing weight. When I realized I was less than 10 pounds away from 200 pounds and I'm only 5'1" tall. The most I weighed at 9 months of pregnancy was 172. Woo Hoo, I now weigh 171, so I've passed one goal milestone! I've had a couple of scares with my health over the last 3 to 4 years and now with a wonderful husband, I am determined to get healthy and stay that way to be a healthy old grandma some day and a sexy senior citizen (which is not too far off in the future!). I love to laugh and try to be positive in my outlook on life. Feel free to drop me a line anytime! Remember, we did not get where we are all at once, it came on 1 pound at a time. My goals is to lose 1 pound a week. I hope to lose a total of 30 pounds in the long run. (P.S., I also like to talk alot! tee hee)

Hi all! I joined SP 3 days ago & am loving it so far. I'm from 'jolly old' England so I'm having to add a lot of foods myself but it's so easy to do it's making tracking my food a breeze.

I'm looking forward to getting to know you all while we achieve our goals together. Best of luck to all!

Hi: I'm 28. I've been struggling to lose weight since I was a kid. I came across sparkpeople randomly and love it. I joined on on March 3 and have already lost 2.4 lbs. I'm hoping to stay motivated and focused with the help and support of sparkpeople.

Hello all, My name is Darlean and decided 2 weeks ago I was going to start my new way of life. I am a 35 married mom of 2 daughters (13 and 11) and my 3 boys (my puppies!!) I was planning on starting Ediets but due to some issues with the company had to find another board and another way to start my diet off. Glad someone referred me to this website! I look forward to finding a buddy with my same type of goal in mind and to help to keep us motivated!
We can do this :)

Hi, my name is CC and I'm from Norway. I'm 39, have a great hubby and a lovable 3 year old son.

I'm around 195pounds.. a little hard to know, because I operate with kilograms. I'm member of an online weight-club in Norway, where I track my food. But joined here also, because of the immense amount of information, motivation and numbers of members here. And I'm going to soak up all of it, as I am determined to reach normal-weight before I turn 40 this november.

I started dieting 2 weeks ago, and I'm down about 4 pounds, so I'm on my way!

This is my first time posting on a forum ever..so I hope this turns out correctly.

Hi, everyone! My name is Connie and I reside in Kansas. Our weather is also awful this year. It was 17 degrees at 9:30 a.m. and warmed up to a nice 23 a noon. Brrrrrrr. I am tired of the snow and ready for spring already. I am married, have five kids total, 2 his, 2 mine, 1 ours. I have struggled with weight for as long as I can remember, have tried every diet known to mankind, and spent a ton doing it. I just happened to stumble over this site when searching online and I'm so happy I did. I look forward to chatting with all of you. Good luck and God Bless, Connie

Hi! I just joined SP to finally lose some baby weight and get back into shape and feel better about myself. After my first baby, I lost 20lbs with WW. Now I want to try to get back to being lean, fit and healthy again. I'm 32yrs old, married for 7yrs and mom to a son (4.5yrs) and daughter (17mo).

I have two big motivators for getting back into shape again--beach trip in June and I'll be a bridesmaid in Sept. The bridesmaid dress is quite form fitting and strapless--yikes!

Look forward to meeting some people here! Just found out about SP and love this site!

Hey everyone-

I'm 32, married and a mother of 2. I am looking to lose 20 pounds in the next 3 months and then maybe go further. I am really good at starting a program, but not good in the follow through. I'm hoping this site will help me. I've started the calorie counter and I don't always like what I see. I'm hoping it will keep me in check.

Hi, everyone. I am a full-time worker, part-time student, all-the-time wife and mother to one really amazing man and one beautiful, energetic five year old.

I am trying to lose a few pounds (17 to be precise), but more importantly I'm trying to adopt a healthier lifestyle including exercise and better eating habits. I'm really excited to be here!

Hello everyone! I'm Laura. I joined SP the other day, but just got around to joining this team. I'm 26, married for 5 years, and have a 13 month old daughter. In the 8 years that I've been with my husband, I've gone from size 0 to size 16. When I walk upstairs, I'm completely out of breath. I have a huge problem with committment to a program and seriously lack will power. Hopefully SP will be my key to getting back in shape.

Hi, I'm Suzi. I joined at the beginning of the week and feel like I am off to a great start! I have 45 lbs to lose, hopefully by August. I'm married and have two children (5 & 2). I am looking for support here because there is no support at home.

Hi, Im Danielle and I too am here to lose weight and gain general physical health. I was a member here before, and am back now after a pregnancy.
I have been working out here and there for a couple months now, but I am needing to get up a schedule to make things more consistant.
Last time I weighed myself I was at 221, though I dont' know my current weight. The scale has never been my friend and I am choosing to weigh myself only once every month. My gage as to how well I am progressing will be in the way that I feel personally. Just looking to start a more healthy lifestyle.
