Hi I'm Krystal from Riverdale. I am completely healthy, outside of my weight. I just made 38 and I know if I do not do something I will remain super high risk for heart disease and/or diabetes. I need all the help and support I can get emoticon

Hello All!! I am from Richton Park, I am a wife and a mother of 2. I am 36 years old. I was just recently told by my doctor that I have high blood pressure and that I need to lose weight. As serious as it is I am still not doing what I am suppose to be doing. I just joined SP last week and I hope that this will give me the motivation and support that I need to get my life on track. I am ready for a change!

Hi! I'm from Frankfort. I just turned 44. I've been wanting to lose weight and get healthy forever it seems. I joined SP this past winter. As of late I haven't been highly motivated and could sure use some friends and some support. I belong to a gym but haven't dragged myself there in quite a while. I want to lose weight but mostly I want to be healthy. My mom has very bad health and my main goal is not to be as ill as she is when I'm her age so my girls don't have to sit at hospitals with me!

I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles. ~ Audrey Hepburn

Hi SP!

I'm from Oak Lawn and have been married for 5 years. My 37 birthday is in 2 weeks so I'm very motivated to lose the weight. I'm going to Moraine Valley to finish my degree in Office System. I should be graduated by this time next year!!! I'm also taking Kickboxing classes.


Yesterday was the past. Tomorrow is the future. Today is a present....SO USE IT!!!!

Hi! I live in Merrionette Park and work for the State.
I am so happy to have found Spark People.

I'll be starting slowly because of other health issues, but it is already a blast!

The water was difficult today, but I did it. I feel bloated. Wonder how I'll sleep?

Welcome back!! I started in June and then stopped but started back up at the beginning of 2010 and I am still here. What helped me the most is checking in everyday. I rejoined the team of the week I restarted and it is a great team. If you have any questions, ask me. I am still learning something new here all the time. Good Luck on your journey!

Hi I'm Lin from Lemont. I'm new to the group. I"ll be turning 50 in less than two weeks. I recently was diagnosed with Rheumatoid. It is hard to stand sometimes, so I'm sitting and doing exercise. I'm very excited to get started. I want to get back to 130, and start living life again. I'm married for 29 years and have a daughter 26 and a son 23. They are a great support system!

Hello!!

My name is Mary and I'm from Oak Forest area. I like meeting new people/friends from all over. I just recently joined the AHA HeartStart walk so I have 6 months to get myself in "shape." My main goal is to start using my treadmill on bad weather days and go walking outside on really good days (HOORAY FOR SPRING!!)

I will be married 25 years this November to the same wonderful, caring, loving man. We have 2 sons (ages 19 and 18) and 5 cats, 1 dog and many fish. We also took in my sister-in-laws kids when she passed away 12 years ago and now have 2 great-nieces and 2 great nephews (all from 1 nephew).

Look forward to meeting/chatting with you.

Spending time on this site today while the weather is not good for a walk.

The journey IS the destination!

Hi everyone. I am new to all this. I live about 30 miles south of Chicago and thought I might meet some new people here to help me (and me help them) lose some of this unwanted weight. I am 59 yrs young. I am in good shape except for my weight. I have three grown children and 5 grandchildren. I love meeting new people. I still can't figure out all the stuff here at sparks, but slowly I am finding my way around. Any suggestions or inputs to how to keep motivated....please respond. I would put a picture but don't know where to do that either emoticon
