Hi I'm not a new sparker...just been out of the loop for over a year and I NEED to get back in it. I have diabetes, arthritis and osteoporosis so, for my health, I need to be more accountable. I've been on a low-carb diet off and on for over 2 years now and have fallen off the wagon and my health has paid a cost!

This team looks like a great way to ease back into paying more attention to the little things that sabotage my efforts.

Hi, I'm new to this team. I've lost 26lbs since January with Spark and am now working on the last 10lbs. It's harder to lose than the 26lbs lol. Anyway, I love this team's daily challenges as I have done all of the spark challenges probably 5 times over,,,

The glass IS half full !

Hi! I'm Lynn, a "Senior Spark." I only recently discovered Sparkpeople through an article on exercising with arthritis. Glad I found the team forums now, because I NEED a team. Motivation to lose weight, eat right, and exercise regularly are not my strong points!

Hello all. I have been part of this team before, but quit SP for a while. Then moved onto 30 day challenges. Unfortunately it's still hard for me to stick with them. I was doing great for my first challenge, but then i got stitches in my leg and don't want to fall off track. So I will adjust as needed and do a challenge everyday to stay on track.

Hi All, I have been on spark on and off since 2009. I have a hard time staying motivated with my chronic pain from arthritis and a stressful job. I am married with a 19 year old son who still lives at home. I also take care of my 85 year old mother. I find myself losing focus on longer challenges and hoping this may be just the ticket have a challenge a day. Nice to meet all of you.

Hello everyone! My name is Michelle and I am happily married 24 years with 3 children (2 grown and one cool teenager!). I live in California and love it here.
I have been with Sparkpeople since April 2016 and have lost 7 pounds with 22 more to be rid of! I work out regularly but thought I could use a boost and be more accountable with this challenge. I look forward to getting to know you all better!
Happy Sparking!

Hi there! My name is Lala. I have not been on track since June 1st and really need a lil encouragement & motivation to MAKE time to get to the gym.
Last year, I lost 65 lbs and have 10 more to go to my ultimate goal of 150. I did it by watching my portions while still eating whatever I wanted, started drinking water (I used to be a camel and NEVER drank water), and added exercise 6 days a week (4-5 days in the gym).
I am super busy with work - I co-own an alarm company with my Hubs & I own two DS (direct sales) business - Younique (makeup) and Tupperware. So, I have let my ME time dwindle and have not followed through with my weight-loss journey plan.
I "study" SP everyday... I try to get at least 100 SparkPoints everyday. It really helps reading and learning. But I need to get motivated and pounded into my head to get back to the GYM!


Be beYOUtiful... Be YOUnique!

Hi Marge,
Thank you for the welcome. We have a couple of other teams in common, Flybaby and Genealogy. I added you as a friend a while back when I joined Flybaby when Homebody was the team leader. I look forward to getting to know you better. I like the idea of one day at a time.

Hi, I'm Marge. I'm glad I found this team. I like the idea of one day challenges. Seems it helps reduce stress by concentrating on one day at a time and one day at a time is much easier to handle. Please feel free to stop by my spark page and get to know me better.

Hi,

I'm new to the 1 Day Challenge. I'm really not sure how this works but thought I would give it a try. I picked a challenge that I think will be difficult for me as I tend to get "lost" in the day and forget to do a little something only for me. Or I justify things I do for others as also doing them for me. Mostly because if these things don't get done, I tend to fret over them or focus on them rather than more productive things. However, I am off to a decent start as Saturday I treated myself to a pedicure. I don't do it often. But it was super nice. Now I just need to train myself to relax and enjoy it when I make the decision to do it and not fret over the cost and time taken away from other things. I find that hard to do. Maybe doing this challenge once I day I will be able to retrain my "brain" to find some focus and peace within myself each day. Hope every one has a fabulous week!

Hey, y'all! I've been a Spark member for about 3 months. For a while I lost weight consistently, but life got in the way and I started plateauing then trending upward.

I want to get back on track and get to a heathy BMI for the first time in my life!! I've got about 40 lbs to go.

I think some challenges might help.

Thanks for reading!

Hi! I'm Kim. I want to lose 50 or so pounds by end of July for my 30th high school reunion. 😎 I am working on buying healthier snacks and eating less or no meat. Dairy will be hard! But cutting back on sodas will be my first challenge. I love sweetened green tea or other herbal teas. So there's that! Lol Good luck to us all!

It's a new year (halfway through lol) and a new me emerging! Watch me work!!

Hi Gigi and welcome to the team. I'm relatively new also and this is my favorite team of all that I belong to. I really like the daily challenges. It gives you something to look forward and you will feel a sense of accomplishment after you complete them. We have a great team leader and she comes up with excellent challenges that are very doable and don't take a lot of time. Good luck with your commitment and again, welcome. emoticon

Thanks Kathleen, I will check out your blog. I do feel committed to the long haul. I've had my ups and downs but as the days go by, it's getting easier. I am learning the ropes of healthy eating thanks to the food tracker and I am hoping it becomes a way of life for me. Thanks for the welcome.

Hey Carol! Welcome to the team. Progress doesn't follow a straight line. Things go up and down - sometimes opposite of the direction you think they should go. Look at the long term, and remember you're commitment to a healthy lifestyle. I posted a blog the other day about being in it for the long haul rather than focusing on short-term success or a point on the scale. Check it out on my Spark page and see what you think.
Have a good week! --kathleen

Hi. I'm Carol and I have been a member of SparkPeople for 3 weeks now. I have been very dedicated to tracking my food, water and exercise. The first week I lost 4 of the 60 pounds I have to get rid of. The 2nd week I stayed exactly the same and so far this week nothing is coming off. I am discouraged so I decided to join this team and take one day at a time. I'm looking for support and motivation. emoticon

Hi I'm Stephanie. I'm 24 years old, and right now I weigh 257... I lost three pounds so far. My journey has been a long one. I had weighed close to 290 and got down to 226, but due to issues with food money or lack of it, I gained almost all of it back. I let it keep me down for months, but I'm back in the swing of things.

A good story can heal the soul.

My name is Kristen. I joined SparkPeople on May 11th, 2015 @ 185.6 lbs. Since then I have lost 21 lbs. My first goal was to lose 20 lbs. by my 30th birthday which is in 2 weeks. Since that goal was met I have moved on to my final weight goal of 145-150 lbs. I could use a good daily challenge to keep me on my toes!

Hi everyone, Just joined this team a couple days ago. Sounds like it will be a fun way to lose these extra #'s. Glad to be here.

Hey from Bama,

I found the BSD at the first of the year through a Spark Friend. I love that book. Using it and my doc's weight loss clinic, I lost 15 pounds. Then life got crazy, some emotional stuff, and I have still kept the weight off (mostly) but I didn't finish Beck.

I'm on Day 4 - GIVING MYSELF CREDIT.
Credit for doing some housework, yard work, eating mindfully, and doing some hand weight workouts and wall/kitchen counter pushups.

Happy to have found you.
Linda

Hello and good morning! My name is Megan and I am not new to spark or weight loss. But I am determined to never stop, never quit. I am looking to be a better, fitter version of me. I love the idea of daily challenges to stay motivated and to keep things new and exciting.
Love and light!

I'm Parker, older in years, but young at heart. Trying to re-capture, not youth, but a healthier way of living/eating. Looking forward to this one-a-day challenge.

Good Morning Everyone emoticon
I have been pretty active on SparkPeople since retiring in 2008 and found this team while looking at one of my SparkFriend's page. I wasn't ready to join yet so bookmarked it to come back to later and now don't remember which SparkFriend I have who is also here.

There is quite a bit about me on my SparkPage and I write blogs fairly regularly if you want to take a look. I've been gone from SparkPeople for several weeks now due to coming down with a persistent case of shingles in mid-February. The initial rash started to fade the first part of March and then came back again worse than ever. Not only wasn't I feeling very good I was depressed and frustrated and definitely not feeling like participating in my Spark teams or doing much of anything else. I'm still a little itchy but think the worst is over now and I'm ready to start working on my weight loss goals and catching up with my Spark friends again.

I live in Southern Oregon. The weather here is good, our fruit trees are all budding and I'm making plans to get our vegetable garden started. The doctor told me to stay out of the sun because it would aggravate my shingles rash so I'm starting my plants indoors and will replant them in our garden beds when they get big enough. I've been outside when it's cool in the morning getting the garden beds ready and pulling weeds in my flower bed so getting a little exercise that way. I also bought an exercise bike and have been using it a little every day. It's been awhile so I'm having to start slowly, so far I can manage about 15 minutes at a time and that's all.

Hello, I'm looking forward to being a part of a new team. I'm trying to improve my lifestyle. The one thing that I've stuck to is giving up potato crisps for Lent. I'm glad that at least one goal has been stuck with. Would like to control evening eating for next challenge but finding it hard. Will try one day at a time to eat fruit at night. I'm 55, a single mum and have been struggling with my weight for years now. Would love to get to about 140lbs eventually. It would be great to feel light again. Dee. Xx

My God loves me, he shelters me from harm.

Hi - I am a returning member! I have had some great success with SP and a gym that focuses on weight loss through increased muscle and metabolism. However, I had to stop all shoulder work and activity in January due to a very painful "impingement" syndrome. I am not 100 percent yet and have to watch it! Needless to say...the weight has crept back on and I know how hard it was to get it off - so I am determined to nip it in the bud, so to speak. So back to SP and teams such as this one!

Remember: Whenever you point a finger, there are 3 more pointing back at yourself. Take responsibility and lead by example.

Trying to get healthier. 1 Lose weight 2 Keep sugar levels under control. 3 Feel like doing more stuff. 4. I do have quit smoking under my belt, thus the weight gain. One year smoke free 1/23/15. This can't be an excuse any longer! Sure I gained 40 pounds, but that is a heck of a lot of food! I am not going to be Miss Piggy any more, I am soon to be Miss Fit! Love it. Oh yeah, I love to have fun and laugh.

Team looks like fun, and it helps to have at least one thing that is different from the regular routines. Looking forward to it. Been spark member a few years.

My name is Latisha - I joined this challenge to help me with my GETTING HEALTHY lifestyle change - So far, I have made a lot of positive changes, but there are still some areas that I continue to struggle with weekly so I am hoping some of these challenges help me to adjust my lifestyle accordingly - Journaling have helped me identify a lot of personal issues that I plan to address daily in order to reach my end result!

While I know myself as a creation of God, I am also obligated to realize and remember everyone else and everything else are also God's creation.

Hi... I'm Katarina and I just decided to start losing weight...quite aimlessly, too. I don't exactly have a plan in mind, but I think this challenge would be a fun thing to attempt along the way :)
