Hi. My name is Wendy and I am from Philadelphia, PA. I have manage to lose 70lbs but for the last nine months (I am definitely not pregnant) the scale has not moved much. I am 30lbs from goal. I hope I can get help with this group. I have been a Spark member since 2011 but I decided it was time to get active here.

The race is not given to the swift, but to those who endure.

Hello,
I am Michele. I am from Dallas, GA via Bowie, MD via hometown:Chicago, IL. I have been a member of Spark several years.
I need to reduce the amount of pills I take a day by losing weight. Uncontrolled weight gain has made me a text book visual of what it can do to a person medically. Being of short stature the weight is concentrating toward the middle causing fat build up around organs.
I have 10 grandchildren who I want a lot more time with.I have a husband that needs to shed a few pounds as well.

Hi Everyone,

I'm Sarah. I'm from Upstate New York. I've been a member of SP since 2008, but didn't stay with it. I didn't change my mindset and the weight came back over the last 3 years. I'm back with a new attitude and the goal to change my life, not just the numbers on the scale.

Hello, Ladies. I'm Jaye, I live in NJ and I really need to lose weight. I have done so before on my own, but for some reason, I need support or a way to focus on staying motivated. I also have some new and minor health issues I need to be sure do not get worse. I know I can stop and reverse further damage now instead of waiting for a doctor to tell me I have no choice. They keep hinting about my needing a nutritionist, but I know what to do, I just need to do it.

So here I am for my own vanity and health reasons hoping to find and offer support in this group. I am happy to be here and hope to be posting results soon.

Thank you!

Dear Pounds,

I am tired of our love-hate relationship. You love making me hate how I look. You love keeping me company, I hate that you have overstayed your welcome. It's time to admit this is not working. We must separate and go our own ways. No hard feelings. You can even take the rolls with you.

Thank you,

Your EX-Host

Hello Guys emoticon !! I'm a personal/private chef emoticon , 37, married mom of three and a very busy lady
overall!!!

When I started this new journey back on February 1st, 2014 I was 5'2" and approximately 218 pounds. My goal is to also lose 65 pounds and be in a size 8 by December 31st. To date, I have shed around 33 pounds and lost 2 pants sizes emoticon . I started in an 18 and now I'm in a 14. I may exceed the size 8 but we'll see. I may also get to 150 and want to go down 10 more pounds to 140. I'm really not sure. My goal this journey is to push myself a little bit more. So who knows what the year's end may bring!!! emoticon

Hi, I'm Martha from southern Maryland. I've been on the site this time since Oct 2013 and have really gotten serious about getting healthy. I'll be 65 in Oct and I've finally started to do something about my weight. Since getting serious in Oct I've lost 15 lbs, gotten off of cholesterol medicine and reduced my blood pressure. I've done this by logging all my food, weighing and measuring most of the time, exercising during the winter months at least 15 mins 99% of the time and drinking at least 8 glasses of water. I've increased my exercise time now that's it's gotten warmer and my seasonal job ended. Looking forward to meeting some new friends to get healthy with.

Martha, almost 65,
Southern Maryland

Hi ladies, my name is Shel and once again im on the road to health, my goal is 50lbs but 4o will do me good too. Im turning 52 in May, borderline DM and HTN so Im getting to be worried and decided I better get health conscious and serious. I have been up and down with my wt. all my life more up than down.

Hello, I'm new to the group and wanted to drop a line. I'm Kay from the Philadelphia area. I'm 30 years old, a wife, a mother and just a woman trying to live a healthier lifestyle. My end goal is to drop 50 pounds over the course of 2014 but in the mean time I want to be more active, eat the right foods and hopefully make a few friends along the way!

Hello! I'm happy to be a part of the team, and a part of sparkpeople again. It's been a while since I've been an active member. I started a new account on Friday, 3/21...since then I've been using the food tracker, which has been really helpful to me. Consistency with my lifestyle change is my challenge. I'm tired of starting over, so I've decided to stop giving up.
Although it's only been 5 days, I'm really proud to take the first step :-)

My name is Sylvia and this is my first time actually using SparkPeople even though I originally registered back in 2008. I am 45 years old with a 7 year old and starting to notice the challenge of movement due to my excess weight. I recently lost my job so in looking for a new one, I want to take this opportunity to work on my eating habits and stress management. I look forward to the support this group can provide. I love to cook and want to learn to cook traditional soul food in a healthy way so my daughter doesn't struggle with her weight the way I have. Also, is there a companion app for the iPhone? Let me know.

Hello everyone

My name is Sheila I am trying to lose between 35 to 40 pounds. I have never really been overweight but recently had a baby and having trouble losing weight. I decided to try this sight for some help because I am not a dieter but will workout and try to eat right. I love to cook and eat and being close to 40 now I find that the weight doesn't fall off. I also came across this team and wanted to be apart of it.

Sorry I posted my introduction under the wrong forum... smh!

I'm Latoya from Indiana and my goal is to lose 132 pounds before my 40th birthday. Good luck all on your roads to success. I came across the team today and would love to be a part.

Thank you!

Hi Lynette, I too have been in this group for quite some time now but not very consistently, disciplined or committed.

It's for me to stop visualizing my weight loss/healthy living dream/desire but begin to be a part in making it my reality. I too, don't wish to be skinny...I love curves and I want to get to a happy peaceful place with who I am in my skin.

I will definitely seize the opportunity and really rely on this team for support. Perhaps if I had done so in the past, I would be at my physical happy place. But I'm a firm believer, timing is everything; and this is definitely my time.

Good luck with your journey,

Hello BBQ ladies!

I am originally from the ivory Coast and have been living in the USA for about 6 years now. My first language is french and I've recently experienced motherhood for the first time. Over the years spent here, I have accumulated close to 50 lbs (lost most of pregnancy weight though). My weight has been up and down while my insecurities have been pretty constant. I have never been able to stick to a diet. I rarely eat junk food but I do eat high carbs ( I could eat french baguettes all day every day! )My main issue ( I finally realized) is my relationship with food: I LOVE TO EAT! (All kind of food: African,Asian, European. I don't discriminate :-) ) i was born this way lol! I feel a connection (good/bad) to what i eat. I don't get it when people say they just eat to feed themselves :-( My loved ones always laugh whenever i talk about diet.I am somewhat active as I can't stand staying put for long periods of time. I really want to become healthier and confident and most importantly, I want to permanently lose the extra weight and improve my eating habits. I need whatever support I can get. Much love to all the BBQs!

Just joined the site and this group. I'm putting my best Spark-s forward, getting Spark-ed so I can Spark-le!!! I lost 60 pounds last year and gained 40 back when I started school. I need some motivation to re-Spark my CAN DO again. I have four girls and I need to set a better example for them. I look forward to us all celebrating our victories and brushing each other off and getting back out there when we need it. I need all the help I can get and I'm no longer ashamed.

Hi ladies I'm Vi,

I'm not new to the team, but I am new to participating and committing to better health. I am here bc I need the support of my sisters on this journey, and I know I can't do it alone. I'm healing from illness that has stolen my 20's and up until now my 30's, I refuse to allow this to control my life any longer. I refuse to allow my unhealthy habits to be the death of me. So I'm here because I want to improve my quality of life, meet wonderful new people and encourage and support as many as I can on this journey. Peace and Blessings and Happy New Year & You!!! emoticon

I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength.

Hi Ladies, so glad I found this team!!! I am working on getting my body in shape and being over 40 is not helping at all!! I've seen some amazing women who look banging at 70 so I guess I cant really use age as an excuse so here I go! I am going to join a couple of challenges to help me stay on track. I want strong and toned, not skinny fat so i'm looking at ways to make that happen. I have about 40 lbs to lose so I'll just settle on in.... emoticon

emoticon emoticon Hi,
My name is LeVella. I'm new to the group and fairly new with getting involved with teams. My goal is to lose 25-35 pounds. Previously I lost 75 pounds but I gained some of the weight back due to stress (marital strife!). I'm currently in the process of trying to gain my self-esteem and strong independence back, and believe me it does make a difference! My weight loss also played a part in my marital strife. Long story short, I'm hoping to give and get support on the journey of happiness with a healthier lifestyle emoticon

Hi!
My name is Debbie and participating in a public format is a new venture for me. I lost 50 pounds 10 years ago on the Slim4Life program. I hit "menopause" and my life took a different spin! I am enjoying this spark site. All of the comments are very encouraging and challenging. emoticon

Real wisdom, God's wisdom, begins with a holy life and is characterized by getting along with others. It is gentle and reasonable, overflowing with mercy and blessings, not hot one day and cold the next, not two-faced. You can develop a healthy, robust community that lives right with God and enjoy its results only if you do the hard work of getting along with each other, treating each other with dignity and honor.

Hello Beautiful Black Queens! Thank you for providing this lovely and supportive team. My name is Michelle and I lost 40 pounds with SparkPeople in 2006 and have managed to maintain my weight with a high protein, low carb diet. I'm here now seeking support in establishing new goals for myself which involve a daily routine that includes a healthy diet and exercise. I also desire to quit smoking! Keeping it real. I currently am not drinking water like a should or eating enough fruits and veggies. I also struggle with depression, so although I don't use food as a crutch, I know I'm not taking care of myself emotionally and physically as I should. I'm here for mutual encouragement and support while working towards a balanced and healthy lifestyle. I'm looking forward to being a positive and progressive member of this team! Please add me!

Hello,

My name is Angela, and I am new to this community. I am 38 and have struggled with my weight for about 20 years I need to drop 100 pounds. I am motivated and I think I am ready to loose this weight one day at a time. I am also looking to meet friends that are working toward the same goals as I am. I am in the Memphis area. Sometimes I work out at the Davis YMCA.

Hi ladies, my name is Sicosh I just joined SP 3 weeks ago.

I live on a gorgeous island bonaire (Near to Aruba and Venezuela).
I joined SP because Gym here cost a fortune ($198 a month), and there aren't much equipment, so I always has to stand and wait for a free machine. I've been trying to lose weight on my own for almost a year with no result.

I have dropped 1 pound (which is not much, I hoped for more), but am feeling great, i'm getting a awesome body.

But i think I need to do more cardio in order to lose more weight.

Happy to goin BBQ, God bless you

Good things comes to those who work hard for it.
