Trying to get healthy and fit and be active, IA. I have kids and I homeschool them, Alhamdullilah. Life is very full and I am very blessed. I look forward to giving and receiving support on this group. Pam

Insha'Allah you are all in the best of health and highest of Imaan. My name is Jawharah, from North Carolina...gotta lose this weight I have been carrying for a loooooong time..:O) seeing as how my daughter is now 20..i guess i can't use the "this is just baby weight" anmore..kinda nervous but this site seems awesome with all of the food plans and tools..okay so i'm babbling now...just wanted to say hello and introduce myself. Insha'Allah we all reach our goals no matter how far away it may seem to be.
My name is Amy and I have just joined this team. I just celebrated my ONE Year Sparkversary the other day and was excited for that! Woo hoo!
I successfully lost 26 pounds last year through the support and tools on this site. This year I want to lose 23 more ( I gained 8 back - Yikes!) and continue working towards healthy lifestyle goals for the long term.
I am a full-time working mother of two small children and a part-time student. If it wasn't for my planner, I'd be lost!
I look forward to chatting with you ladies and inshallah we can reach some goals together!

I'm Mel. (Short for Melissa.) I've been a member of SparkPeople for a while and have lost 65 pounds. I still have about 60 pounds to go. I got the invite to join this team and as my team is absolutely inactive, thought I might come over.
Peace and Blessings!

I'm Munee. Originally from New York now living in Dubai. I am trying actively to lose weight for the first time in my life . I had always been thin and ate whatever I felt like . I never gave a thought to calories or nutrition. Not to say that all I ate was junk. Just that eating or more to the point choosing a well balanced diet wasnt something I gave much thought to. Well gradually I started putting on weight and one day I found myself 40 lbs over my usual weight (which was very thin) So my goal now is to lose 20lbs and keep it off. This site seems to be a good way to keep track of everything once I familiarize myself with it.
