Hello Everybody! I am new to SparkPeople as well as The Fighting Temptations. I need to lose a total of 25 lbs and it has been a struggle. I have read some of your posts, as well as looked at some of your pages and you ladies are really motivating me. Right now I am 145 lbs, but I'm only 5'0" tall. The thing is, I carry it well, so until I went to the doctor, I did not know I was that heavy. Now don't get me wrong, I don't think 145 lbs is fat, it's just too big for my extremely small (the circumference of my wrist is 6"), 5'0' frame. Congrats to those of you that have lost weight. Again, you guys are an inspiration.

Welcome Megan.. this team will help you in fighting off those temptations that hold us from our VICTORY!! We all need help in this journey. I've learned that if we just OPEN our eyes to what is REAL we will be able to fight every temptation.. But, the question is WHAT IS REAL to you?? I want you to know that GOD is REAL to me and only HE empowers me to fight off every temptation. We all have a purpose in life and as long as we are blinded with temptations we will not receive the VICTORY that is due!! Be opened to share what is on your heart and what is REAL with you!! Let's fight off these temptations together. Be blessed this week!!

Thanks Sistah! I haven't done all that well lately and have been really off the program. In fact, I haven't visited Spark in a while but I'm gonna change that. I have been busy with other stuff. I write fan fiction, I am a moderator for the site that I post my stories too and I just started up my candle business again and just got my website up and running for that. PLUS I work full time and watch my granddaughter for my daughter when she works. I know it's all excuses but I need help keeping myself on the top of my priorities list. Thanks for your motivation by the way. You are awesome!

Hello to all! I am not new to SP, but the name stoppped me right in my surfing tracks. My biggest and hardest part of the big picture (working out, counting my calories and keeping up with my water intake ) is the temptations. And i only have one general temptation on my back daily and that is SWEETS. That is what got me to the heaviest.
I figured that with a team name like this, Support wont be too far away!!

Hi Ladies! I am not new to SP, but I haven't really used the site like I should. I was just surfing the site and TAUMAIA's page caught my attention because her profile name sounded Samoan. I haven't been making a serious effort to get this weight off. I am 234 lbs and sick of it. I feel like my aches and pains are weight related and I can't take another minute. Also, I will be going to the Dominican Republic for my birthday in November and I would like to be able to go to the beach without a T-shirt on trying to cover up my lumps and bumps. I am excited and committed to following through!

Hi Everyone,
My name is Debra and I joined SP on 03/20/08, one of the best decisions I have made in a long time. I am a HAPPILY divorced mother of a 23 year old daughter, and a 5 year old granddaughter, whom I adore very much. I received my Master's degree last May and decided I wanted to teach health. Then the light bulb went on. Shouldn't I be healthy if I am going to teach health? I started the credential program in January, and started my lifestyle change on March 1. I must say it has been a blessing joining SP, everyone is so nice and the inspiration, motivation, and dedication is great!!!

I look forward to being an important part of this group.
debra

Hi Everyone! My name is Deb. I am 30 years old and expecting my first baby in September. My boo & I can't wait to hold our baby Titus! :)
I am wanting to lose all my pregnancy weight as soon as possible-late september, early october.
I have been with my boyfriend for almost two years. He is very supportive in all my decisions. My man is always working out, making his body better daily. He is a current football player at University of Alabama. So I really need to step my game up...to complete my new beautiful family! :)

Hope this group will have a lot of challenges in the fall.
Can't wait to meet all of you.
Deb

Deb, Deb J, or DJ :)

Goals ♥ to lose at least 60 pounds by August
Motivation ♥ Looking hot next time I see my boyfriend
Reward ♥ Summer Caribbean Cruise with my man ♥

hi..

my name is malathi and I am from Malaysia.. Am a 28 year old female and am still single... :) ..

Been fighting to loose weight for the past 5 years and am finding it hard now coz i do get tempted with food.. eventhough when i am full ...

... i'm basically tempted to food... all of them...

sigh.... but am working hard towards beating the habit..

FEAR CAUSES A PERSON TO LOOSE FOCUS AND FAIL IN WHAT EVER THEY DO & WHENEVER THERE IS FEAR, TRY TO COMFORT AND ENSURE YOURSELF THAT THERE IS NOTHING TO BE AFRAID OF....

Hello All,

Most of you may know, my husband is a Aircraft Business Planner and the National Geographic Channel did a filming last year of the day to day job duties and tasks at his job in Goodyear, AZ. So please see the info below and watch the National Geo channel tomorrow night.... check your local listings for re run of this segment if you can't watch it tomorrow... Pass this along if I missed anyone!




Break It Down: Plane
Thursday, May 1,at 9:00 PM ET/PT (World Premiere)

Its easy enough to recycle a soda can, but what happens when you want to junk one of the worlds largest airplanes? A select team of airplane mechanics is tasked with deconstructing and recycling a 747 jumbo jet. With pieces that are all substantially bigger and heavier than those of standard jets, the 747 promises to be a tough deconstruction challenge for this group. Well be with them, from cockpit to cargo hold, as they tackle this mega feat of unengineering.

Hello Ladies
I am very new to this site and I am excited!
My name is Lashaun. I a 29yrs old and mother of one beautiful and smart little four year old. I have been dealing with this weight issue for about five years now and I am tired of it. What did it for me is was getting on the scale at the doctor and it read 304! I cried. I knew that my weight have gotten up there because I have been going through some trials for the past year and a half but, boy oh boy I did not expect in the 3's! My problem is eating chocalate and fast food when I am stressed. It comes very easy. It's comforting. So I thought! I know there has to be a better way. I need to lose 100lbs. But for now I will start off by making small goals because, wheew sisters 100lbs. seems like a looooong way. LOL
I love lane Bryant but, I am looking to forward to the day when I longer have to shop there.
So ladies with the help and support of you all and hoping for a great return.

To Shanda Wright- Thank you for inviting me to your team.

Peace and blessings

Hey Ladies- I just wanted to introduce myself to the team. My name is Taryn, I'm a SAHM to a 20 month old little boy. I've been on SP since march of 2007, lost 13 lbs initially, fell off the wagon, and gained it all back plus 15 pounds. I checked my BMI just after christmas and my jaw hit the floor! So you better believe I logged onto SP, updated everything, dusted off my trusted Turbo Jam videos and got back into the gear of things. I've lost 21 pounds since the new year! woohoo! I know my ticker says that I'm almost at my goal weight, but my ultimate goal is actually 130 lbs. I'm working in increments and its almost down to extend the ticker i think!

Anyhow, I think this looks like a really great group, and I'm so happy to be here! emoticon

Hello there everyone!
I've definitely been struggling with temptation which is holding me back from losing some weight I think. For me, the power to say NO does not come very easily.
Hopefully I can learn from you all!

Hi,

I have been with SP since Dec 08. I started out strong. but the last two weeks have been tuff and I am back where I started with my weight. I deal with stress by eating fast food. That is definitely my worst temptation.

Hi everyone !

I joined this team today as I am 'fighting temptation' since I reached my goal weight. I am now maintaining between 109-112 lbs. Looking forward to support from all the members...

Have a great day all !

Its not that we will ever stop learningits just that we have to start using the tools in our everyday lives, as opposed to conducting an ongoing search to fix ourselves.

Hi, my name is Tonya and I have been on and off spark for a while now. Well, I have decided to recommit for my last time and get this weight off once and for all.

I feel this is a very fitting group as I deal with a lot of temptations on a daily basis. Sugar/sweets is my main one. :(

I look forward to getting to know everyone!!

Hey, I'm new here too, and I'm LOVING spark people!!!
I'm working hard to try to reach my goals, I'm doing good on the diet part, but lacking in the "get off my butt and move" area.
I have three small kids, so I have a hard time finding time to workout. I hoping with sp that well change.
I'm also a army wife, my husband is in Iraq right now so it's hard, but I'm trying to reach my goals by the time he gets back, so that helps me stay focus.
Well It's nice to meet everyone. TTFN. emoticon

****************New to the Team*****************
I am excited to be here. I love meeting new people and exchanging tips and advice. Most importantly encouragement! Read my page and you will find out more about me. However my weight lost goal is to lose 40 lbs. So far I have lost 15.5, so I have 24.5 to go. If I can lose the next 15.5 as gracefully as I lost the first then I will be so pleased. Again nice to meet you all and stay in touch. emoticon

Hi everyone, my name is Francia. Please feel free to call me Fran. I have been with Spark since Feb.2006. This is my third attempt to reach my health & fitness goals. Fortunately for me the third time is a charm because I am doing very well so far. I started my "New" journey on 01/01/08 and since then I have lost 20 pounds! I'd lost 5 lbs. about 2 months before I started in January and was able to maintain it with sparkpeople so I've lost a total of 25 lbs. since I joined.

I look forward to continueing my journey with the support of the Fighting Temptations team!

Metamorphosis is defined as a change of physical form or structure, a striking alteration in appearance, character, or circumstances.

My goal is to do just that. I have made a commitment to myself to finally change my APPEARENCE, to build my CHARACTER and to change my CIRCUMSTANCES for the better once and for all!

Hi, my name is Janeather. I'm 23 years old and I live in Mississippi. I've been a member of Spark for about a week now and I'm really learning a lot from the website. I've had some ups and downs but I'm not giving up. I wanted to join this team in the hopes that I can get more motivated about getting in shape.

Hi! My name is Linda. I've been a member of SP since March 6, 2007. I did see my goal weight of 126 two days before Thansgiving but have gained 10. I sit at a desk 6 hrs. a day, 5 days a week. We also have those wonderful vending machines at work. Two with soda/water and one with snacks. They also call out once or twice a week for lunch.

I started 3/6/07 at 149. I have lost almost 22 pounds.

Hello all, My name is Margo and I live and work in Georgia. I have 50 pounds to lose and I know that it is going to happen. My co-worker and friend Shanda turned me on to SP and I can't thank her enough. I have a long distance marriage so I have all the time in the world to deal with my weight loss efforts, without the distractions of having to care for another person. I have been on SP for 2 weeks and already feel the benefits. I am so glad to have this team. One member is very dear to my heart and I can't wait to get the know the rest of you..



The big secret in life is that there is no big secret. Whatever your goal, you can get there if you're willing to work.

Hello Everyone!

My name is Stephanie (Steph). I have a very active Toy Fox Terrier whose name is Skeeter. His name fits him to a tee! I cannot wait until the weather becomes warmer, so I can go back to taking long walks with him. I live in Ohio!

I have been a member of Sparkpeople since June 2006 and I am quite pleased with it! I love the groups! I had to reevaluate the teams I was on and I had to make some changes, because I am working on my whole being, not just the weight issue. It is so nice finding people who you have things in common with!

Hi Team - My name is Tamara (Tammy) and I am married with one (1) child as well and reside in New York. I joined sparks just a couple of weeks ago and fell in love with the site!

Shanda - I could not go to sleep last night because something was pushing me to create this team and when I started putting it together I could not stop.

I wanted to create a team that includes EVERYONE - i enjoy the teams geared toward, culture, hobbies, specific habits, and different organizations, but I wanted to put together a team that everyone can benefit from, since we all have a common goal to strive everyday to do something better for ourselves or we would not be on this site at all.

I hope you all enjoy the team!
