Everyone still here, feel free to introduce yourself "again" and get everyone else caught up on who you are and what you're currently working on.

I'm Margo, just turned 59 in October. I'm looking to weigh close to 200 pounds by our second Spark Anniversary (mine is April 30). Health is my #1 priority and that includes SparkPeople and losing weight but my #1 priority also includes my interest in cooking and food/recipes and my husband's and my diet (as in what we eat, not weight loss) and my personal health issues and interests (thyroid, asthma, not getting high blood pressure, and aging gracefully).

My other priorities are my genealogy work, my daily habits and organization/routine and care of my home and lifestyle, and each month I have a slightly smaller, more concentrated goal too. Last month I wrote a novel with NaNoWriMo and this month I'm starting a four-month study of my finances; investments, income, expenses, the whole shebang put together. I also do quilting/sewing but don't have that as a priority at the moment because I do it once a week at the store where my teacher is and don't do much at home. So, just going out to the store for 2-3 hours each week takes care of that.

My husband and I are retired and live on a river that flows into the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland so we have a boat and before we lived here we had an RV we still have; we use to travel for our vacations but now that we are retired and in the "perfect" spot, leaving is harder to do :-)

Welcome to the team, Phaedra - you're doing a great job so far! I've almost lost 15 pounds. I missed it by 1/2 pound this week. Keep up the good work and keep us posted on your progress.

Hello, I've been a Sparkie since April 29th. and just found Date Teams today! I'm 50, have 2 sons, 16 & 21, and a wonderful husband of almost 25 years!
We live in Alabama and thanks to Spark People have rediscovered our back yard-we've started playing badminton, basketball, & frisbee as a family-quite a change from the couch potatoes we were a few months ago! The only hindrance now is the heat-it's supposed to be 100 degrees today BUT we have also discovered the Wii and the bowling & tennis are a lot of fun indoors on these kind of days!
It's great to be here & Happy Sparks to everyone!

Hello everyone I joined sparks back in april but then let sit idle for awhile up until last week when I started into the site. I love it there is so much support and motivation here and that is what I need so bad right now. The past week or so I have been tracking my calories, doing good with the water drinking, but not so good with the exercise last night was the first I got on the treadmill. I did a 20 min mile and did some strength training afterwards and it did feel really good.
About me I am 40 with about 80 something to loose I am happily married to the man of my dreams for 21 years we have two teenage boys, and I live in Pennsylvania.
A big hello to everyone!! emoticon

Hi Everyone. I joined SP on April 30th. From January 1st to mid April I had lost and gained the same 3 to 5 lb. Since joining SP I've lost an additional 15 lb for a total of 18! It's proof that the motivation and information provided by the website really makes the difference. I have a very long way to go but even 18 lb has made a huge difference on my joints, back, energy level and attitude. Congratulations to everyone for their effort, determination, and success so far. Let's keep it up. This feels great!

Every passing moment is another chance to turn it all around.

Same as DENIRAZ!! I just joined this team today because I didn't know there were special teams for the week you joined. I actually joined SP on 4/28/08 and I've lost 11 lbs so far!! emoticon

I'm 14 lbs away from my goal of 120!! I feel that SP has really helped me alot! The Nutrition Tracker & Fitness Tracker are great tools. I track everything I eat and it makes me more aware of my weaknesses and what I should and shouldn't be eating....I just love it.

Anyway, I hope to get to know some of you soon.

Just joined this team today. Didn't know there were teams for dates joined. I have been tracking my nutrition & fitness calories for over 12 weeks, with only 1 day missed. That is a record for me. Started to change my lifestyle on April 14th 2008 starting with my nutrition, added fitness with walking, then martial arts. I only joined SP on April 30th (the day after my 43rd BD)as a fluke. Didn't know it existed. Was looking for a recipe calculator....and the rest is history and 15 lbs later. Glad to be here.

Misstherealme - it's good to hear from you. My weight loss has been slow, but steady. I even changed my ticker from a butterfly to a turtle

I'd rather lose weight slowly by changing my eating habits than starve myself and see the weight come right back as quickly as it left. Good luck to you and don't forget to keep us updated on your success. We have a forum where we track our exercise minutes and one where we share our weekly successes (or setbacks). Join with us and it'll help motivate you!

I don't know why I never posted in this team when it was the first one on my page after I joined- but I'm just gonna do it now! (After all, it's only been two months). emoticon So far I've only lost 7 lbs. here but I plan on stepping it up a bit and really putting in the effort to make that weight loss ticker move! I look forward to getting to know you all- even if I am really late! emoticon

I had a few extra minutes of 'computer time' this evening and decided to read some of the messages on this Introduce Yourself forum - I had posted to it soon after I joined SP, but hadn't been reading it lately. I was amazed at all the new names I saw - SO many people here, and we all started SP during the same week!

I've almost lost my first 5 lbs since joining here - I'm slow but steady
emoticon

I live in a small town in the beautiful mountains of Virginia. I lost 50 lbs and went down 6 sizes about 10 years ago, so I know I can do it again. It's a great feeling to lose weight AND inches, so just keep eating right and exercising and we can all reach our goals!

Consistency is so the key for me. I have all the tools and use them from 'time to time' but consistency in all areas of living healthier (exercise, water consumption, food choices) is proving to be hard for me at this time. I used to get angry at myself for not doing the things I KNOW are good for me and I feel good doing but now I give myself a 5 min chat every day to embrace the good things that I have accomplished and accept the unhealthier choices all the while trying to strategize a new way forward for the next day. emoticon

For me awareness is key!!!! I know when I make a poor food choice now and learn from that. As for exercise it seems to be the first thing to go for me. Always rush, rush, rush, or sit, sit, sit. Hang in there and don't give up. Consistency is key!!!

Hi, I'm so glad I found sparkpeople! I've been doing pretty well at logging all of my food and I know it has helped me be more aware of every food choice. I have been slacking a little on the exercise but I'm making progress!

I signed up with SparkPeople about a month ago. Got off to a good start in making changes in my life, but have floundered a bit the last couple of weeks. I had a hard time getting used to the website and learning to navigate it, but I hope to be more involved online. I think "accountability" will help keep me focused!

Hi
I'm 47, mother to 1 beautiful women of 23, and married to a wonderful man.
I guess I'm a bit of an introvert. But in seeing how everyone has been so awesome in supporting each other on Spark, I've decided it's time to put myself out there, quit hiding, and share my success and failures.

Hello,

I joined SP on April 27 after I read an article in a magazine. After I joined SP, I was impressed with all the articles, people,and boards this site has to offer. I'm 33 and my goal is to lose 38 lbs by December.

Hi My name is Joanne, I am a 5 ft2 woman, and had always been petite at 120pound. Over the years after moving in with my now husband, my weight slowly started changing. I now weigh 160 pound. My goal is to loose 30-40 pound, and be conscious of what I eat and be healthy.

Hi I joined spark on May 3rd but just found this team today. Look forward to meeting you!

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're commited to something, you accept no excuses; only RESULTS!

Hello Team! I kept reading about these SP Join Date teams and just found mine..... I joined on April 28. My name is Melissa. I am in my early 40s, married and a Type1 Diabetic for 40 years. I have one child, he is a 4 legged child named Captain Jack, aka Jack. He will be 4 in Sept. I am blind due to my diabetes and have been for about 20 years now. I also have a broken leg right now which takes longer to heal due to the diabetes.... My user name should've been "due to the diabetes"! I've lost about 10 lbs. since joining, but it doesn't show b/c I was mistaken about my starting weight! I love, love, love this site! I'm doing the Swimsuit Bootcamp from my wheelchair which often takes some imagination! But, I'm moving and that is what counts! Glad to be a part of what seems to be a terrifically supportive team!

Hello all!

My name is Kelly and I am happy to be here. I am hoping with a little help I will be able to get healthy again...I have let myself go these last few years. I live in VA and have a wonderful husband and son. I want to have the energy to play with my son and be a great Mom who is active and I want to look great for my husband (and myself). I hope to be talking with you all! Have a great weekend!

OK, I admit I'm a little slow about finding the "Class" SparkTeam for the week I joined. I'm 55 years old, have one son, one ex-husband, one dog, one cat... is it any wonder I have a "one" for a userid?

In any case I've been thrilled at the many features of this site, and can see how addictive it could become. I wish everyone who's starting their new initiative using SparkPeople good luck and good friendship on the journey to healthier, happier living!

Welcome! I hope your program is coming along well--both eating and exercise and just finding your way around the site in general.

Let me know if I can help you with anything. emoticon

Hi, my name is Melissa and I'm 1 week into using SP. So far I'm addicted to it! I joined for several reasons, one being that I turn 30 the end of this month and the other is that my husband is taking me on a cruise to Bermuda in less than 4 weeks! I have not been very good about keeping in shape since becoming a mom and would like to drop these very stubborn last 10 lbs. Prior to joining I lost 7.5 lbs and needed something to keep me motivated since I seemed to have plateaued. I find that I want to get on and track my food and fitness immediately after I do it! LOL! Love to meet others struggling with the same issues.

Welcome, CFORCHION. This is a great site for doing what we are doing. I'm already feeling better after less than a week on here. Meal and exercise tracking has been very helpful. Good luck! emoticon

Hello all, I'm a 21 year old college student from Texas. I began my journey off line, but I'm enjoying it so much better being able to see other people's successes. I am ready and willing to help/motivate anyone who needs it. I know there are plenty of times where I needed motivation myself. I look forward to getting to know everyone :)

Hello everyone! I joined SP on April 29th and am just getting familiar with how the site works. So far it is awesome, and has a wonderful community of peopole. A little about me, Im 22 years old and am a single mom. My daughter is 19 months old, and is growing up so fast. I deicded to join SP and start some kind of a diet because I got tired of the "when are you due" question. Its time to turn this baby flab into FAB! Hope to chat with you all soon!

Hi and thanks for the welcome. Yes, a few problems but most of the serious ones are way in the past now:) Heart health is not too bad, I can still get episodes of heart palpatations but they're not seriuos enough to warrant a major intervention, just being monitored by a cardiologist. I can move, cycle, run, lift weights better now than any other period in my life, even my teens, so I am hugley grateful!! I have more energy than even my children and they're in their 20s!! I still enjoy alcohol on occassion, don't deprive myself so if I want chocolate, I'll have it, just much smaller amounts and not often!! So life is good:) Thanks again, shaz
