Hi,
I re-joined SP less than a month ago and am so inspired by the positive people and encouraging words. I'm grateful for all the wisdom you can offer.

I am a recently single, mother of three and in my late 40s, living outside of Atlanta, Georgia and grew up in sunny southern California. About 20-30 pounds overweight. Not terribly bad at food choices but am looking to improve my mental well-being. The weight is secondary and temporary, I'm comfortable with that fact. Glad to be here.

Hi Thomas, I'm new to this team, too. I've been on SP for many years but just got more active this past year. I live in FL, but lived in the DFW area for about 8 years in the 90s. I LOVE your neck of the woods. It's were the best and BIGGEST Renaissance Festival in the country is located!!!!! Very happy place to forget about the "real world" for a day or a weekend emoticon
I look forward to getting to know you and the rest of the folks on this team....exchange interesting perspectives and get a little happiness boost when the day hasn't been so ideal.

Hope your weekend is spectacular!

Greetings World,

My name is Thomas and I call Houston/Katy Texas my home. I have been a very negative person for most of my life. I am told that I never used to worry before my mother got sick and succumbed to cancer by the time I was 13. I do not say this for sympathy, I am 45 now and I live with a very negative attitude and I am changing that. I joined with you all because I know this world needs more positive people and more positive information and stories out there. I have had enough of all the negative this worlds people have put out there and i want to be one to take part in a change. A change in my life for better health and a change in the world by getting away form the negative attitude and expressing an attitude of hope, joy and positivism. I hope to make some great friends here. After-all, Iron sharpens Iron!

I am currently doing two official SP challenges.

Here are the changes I have made so far:
1. Planning meals on weekly basis
2. Drinking 2.2 L of H2O per day
3. Keeping fruit in bowls throughout my house
4. Tracking my food calories
5. Working out every day
6. Eating 5 fruits or vegetables each day

I am working on new workouts and I have a 1200 calorie a day diet. TIME TO DO THIS!

Hi Wanda,

I am only very new to blogging so most of the time find it difficult to know what to write about, and end up rattling on about things in my life. My main aim is to produce inspiring blogs which give a message.

I look forward to reading yours too

Hugs back to you and the rest of the team

Wanted to welcome all of you to our team. I'm sorry it's taken so long to get here and say WELCOME, but welcome you are. We meet everyday in the Chit Chat lounge, so do drop in there and join in the posts. It's how we get to know each other and offer the support and encouragement that we all need.

You will find that we are from all over. I'm from Alberta Canada but many are from California all the way across the states to the Eastern seaboard.

We are happy to have you here and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Someone will always take the time to help you out.

Hi - I'm from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canadal. I stumbled on SparkPeople by accident and decided that it was the tool for me. I love the resources, the coaches, the ease of use, and the program. I joined SparkCoach and I highly recommend it as the daily interaction is very beneficial. While I need to lose weight - probably about 50 to 75 pounds, my real struggle has always been exercise. I'm just one of those people who doesn't get much thrill out of activity. So I decided that exercise would be my number one focus in the program. While I signed up for SP about a year ago, I've really given it my full attention since November. I'm happy to report that I go to the Fieldhouse (walking track) about 3 times a week, and walk around 45 minutes each time. AND the biggest thing is that I'm starting to enjoy it. I certainly enjoy the positive feelings swirling in my head. I listen to Podcasts while I'm walking - interviews with some of the world's most interesting people and that fills my major passion - life long learning. I purchased the Activity Tracker and love it too.

All in all, it's a great tool, and is helping me stay focussed and committed.

I'm strong, capable and ready to face the sun.

Hi everyone!

I noticed the name of this team and just had to come check it out. Last year, I joined SparkPeople and it has helped me change some habits. Haven't tried blogging yet, but it's on my to-do list for this new year, so why not start by joining this team?

I live in Florida with my husband and our four kids, just finished my Bachelor's degree yesterday, and I am very active with our oldest daughter's Girl Scout troop.

Life is made up of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad, but the bad things don't spoil the good things or make them unimportant.

Hello, I live in sunny Southern California and I am a sunny person who is upbeat most of the time. I am really glad that SP let me know about this team because it will help reinforce the positives in my life. I am new to blogging, and I am enjoying the process. My first blog was done because SparkGuy told me to, and I have done several in the last month.

Good day! I am here from blustery west Michigan. Where the polar vortex has brought beauty over the last weeks, and a broken treadmill has reduced my exercise to merely strength training and a few attempts at cardio. It's warming up though, so today I will begin my daily walks through my neighborhood. How exciting is that!?

Let's see, sorry about the little "tangent" there. I'm mom to five amazing children, two of which are grown now. My husband is the most supportive person I know, though he is no fan of exercise he is very encouraging to me.

I am also a writer and the family historian, which means my desk and I are great friends ... I'm working on severing or at least taming that relationship by regular exercise and better self-esteem. I'm slowly working on getting out in the real world where I can shine, rather than hiding behind my computer.

Anyway, I was directed here by a suggestion on Spark Coach and having read through some threads I am thrilled to have found all of you! I'm looking forward to an encouraging future with you.

I joined the team a week or so ago and haven't really been on the message boards yet, so I thought it was time to introduce myself. I have been on SP for almost 7 months and even though I haven't reached as many goals as I would like to have reached by this time, I remain positive and committed to the program and philosophy.
I joined this team because I believe in blogging as a way to work through your own issues and to see what others are going through. The idea of "positive blogging" interests me because I am committed to making 2014 a year to "CREATE POSITIVE CHANGE" in my life as well as to hopefully inspire others to do the same. You must purposely choose to be positive in this world where we are overwhelmed with the negative attitudes and opinions and messages.

Welcome new members.

So nice to see your posts and hoping to see more of them as the new year unfolds. Drop by the chit chat lounge and jump right in. We gather there pretty much every day. It's a great way to get to know each other and if you have questions, someone will answer them for you.

Looking forward to sharing this journey with you.

Hi everyone,

I just joined and I'm wanting to blog, but just haven't done it yet.

I joined SP a year ago, and was only on it for a few weeks, before getting overwhelmed. I've been back since last month, and I'm finally getting it together. I feel like blogging, but I think I just don't know what to talk about first. I'm making some notes to myself to organize my thoughts for the first one. Then I know after that it should be a lot easier. I just have so much to talk about, and just need a good place to start. I'm thinking if I just 'introduce myself' that should be a good one to start with.

Anyway, I'm glad I found this team. I look forward to learning a lot, and getting inspired along the way!

Hi all!

Happy to be here via Spark Coach program.

emoticon emoticon This looks like a place I would like to be! I like to be positive. Of course, I have my moments, but by and large I am an optimist. I might be in the minority. Most of my life, I've been stubbornly optimistic! Lol. I hope to be motivated and inspired by you all! This will be a nice change for me. Although, there it's important to let go of negativity, sadness, frustration and even anger, there is always room for being positive, loving the world, happiness, joy and of course. even being funny! Lol. emoticon

As I said, I'm happy to be here!





Love life!

Hello Team Members! I'm Stephanie (Steph) and, though terribly shy, I truly enjoy sharing with and encouraging anyone (or anything, for that matter) who might be looking for some up-beat backup. I joined the team last week but haven't gathered up the courage to "talk" to anyone before now. Oh! Also am totally NON-computer savy, so it does take me a while to figure out where everything is AND remember how the heck I got there! Bear with me and I WILL get better at all of the above. Am truly looking forward to getting to know you all. GOOD GRIEF! I feel as though I know you all already! Will work on the Chit Chat Lounge "challenge" first!

Welcome to the positive bloggers team. Visit us daily in the Chit Chat lounge as that is where we gather. Ask if you have questions, we will do what we can to help you out. Your positive journey will be a personal journey of learning to seek and find your positives in every situation. As you continue to work towards the goal of being positive it becomes easier and easier. The Law of Attraction at work...what you focus on is what you draw to yourself. Looking forward to getting to know you.

Hi I'm Risa...I need to be positive! I always thought that I was, but actually I tend to go over unimportant negative things - usually at work, and that gets me to over eat or eat off plan.

If I can tackle this..I think I can finally lose weight.

I'm trying to release all that so I can finally lose weight..look forward to learning with this team.



All is well; life is good.

Namaste,
Risa

Wanda, thank you for the welcome. I'm starting the day with a cuppa joe and a great big smile, thinking about a flotilla of wobbly carts heading out together. Happy hunting!

Welcome Seajess....I think we are all like that bum cart at times...heading here and then over there. The great thing is that we will be all together and somehow we are going to all end up having a lot of fun.

Hi, I'm Jess. I'm very happy to be on this team! Sometimes I'm like one of those carts you get in a supermarket with the bum wheel that always want to pull off to the right or the left and if you don't keep an eye on it, you'll end up engaging a pile of canned goods or something else. My mind is like that. I know I can chose my thoughts but often I forget to steer and there goes that cart!

Looking forward to cultivating the good with you all.

Hi, I'm Lauren. I have a positivity Facebook page rather than a blog. I'm hoping to find inspiration and support to keep the positivity going. Some days are easier than others, as you all probably already know. We are trying out a new positivity model at work, though some days it turns into, "I'm positive this will fail." I've decided that I can present as upbeat or as a crab, and I much prefer the world see me as the former.

Oh, and I took a photo of Pollyanna a week or so ago when I was in her hometown: www.flickr.com/photos/lauren0099/951

Hi. I've been visiting SparkPeople on and off for a few years. Finally decided to get serious about it this summer and have been loving it. The SparkCoach has really helped me stay positive and motivated. I'm a school teacher, so I usually do better during the summer anyway. I'm hoping that by reading and posting more positives, that the goodness will help me through the school year as well. I like thinking happy thoughts, but deal with mild depression and moderate anxiety, so it's good to have some reminders to stay positive. Thanks in advance for all your positiveness. :D

Hi! I'm Trent.

I've been on SparkPeople for about 4 years now and am finally on the road to meeting my goals of 195 pounds and 15% body fat.

Blogging has been a big part of my journey, so I'm happy to find others who feel the same way. I will very occasionally post blogs that have "The Power of Negative Thinking" in the title or an actual titled "Pity Party" blog when I'm frustrated. I would ask you not to read these, given the nature of the team. The overwhelming majority of my blogs are positive.

Please let me know if my blogs do or don't fit the team's vision. I won't be offended if you ask me to leave.

Thanks!

Hello!

My name is Rhiannon. I love blogging and this group seemed right up my alley.

I don't use my sparkpeople blog too much. I blog on wordpress and tend to favor that for every type of blog I write.

This summer I'm working through a family summer bucket list that I wrote for my family. Some on the bucket list are for me alone, others are for my daughter, some are for my husband and I together and the rest is meant for us to do as a family (or as much of a family as we can be with my husband working overtime -- which he does a lot in the summer).

/2013/07/03/2013-family-summer-buckeR>t-list/


The link to my wordpress blog is in my signature, whenever I write a blog for here I'll post the link..or copy and paste it to the sparkpeople blog.

Hi--I'm Jan,
I recognized a spark friend (Joanne) and I value her friendship and always writing about positive things .............. they certainly uplift. I saw where it was stated, "Many work full time as do I .............. so I don't necessarily pop on daily .............. (Have been a spark member for 1.5 years now and love it!

~Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless." .... Mother Teresa

I just joined this team. Between chronic clinical depression and feeling discouraged about my body, having a group dedicated to thinking positively is just the ticket! Thank you for starting this team!

Welcome to all the new members. We are happy to have you join us for as long as you feel you need to stay. Positiveness can become your way of life just by making that choice. It's part of become a whole and healthy you. Please jump right in and join the daily posts in the Chit Chat lounge. Help us to get to know you and support you. The chit chat lounge is where we gather daily. As well, we would be happy to have to join in any of the posted daily challenges and for those that would like to join the walking challenge please feel welcome to do that too.

Everyone has bad days and difficult days, so don't be afraid to show your frustration, we only ask that if you list a negative you must also find the positive within it and post that also. Example: I am so mad at myself because I went over my calories today, the positive side to this...I am learning to recognize the triggers that cause me to be unsuccessful and I'm working on doing better tomorrow.

Every negative has a positive inside, so just keep looking.

Have fun,
Wanda

Hi! I joined this team because I need to add more positivity to my days. I am new to this team but not to Spark. I have been here for a few years but have not been very consistent so my success has not been good. I recently joined the Spark Coach Consistency and Motivation Program and find that it has really sparked me. I want that to continue.

Hi! My name is Barbara. I'm new to this group, and only been on SP about a month. My experience so far is that every team is positive, but it is so good to find a team whose focus is positive! Hooray for those who started it! Glad to find you, and while I need positive input to my life, I intend to provide positive thoughts and support as we go along. emoticon

Hello hello. New to this group. I've been Sparkin' a while. Down about 16 lbs since I started SP, this time around. It great to see a positive blogging group. I love positive attitudes, and we can all use positive words every day. Have a good night.

Color it up!

Happy Sunday!

I also found this via a sparkcoach link. So glad I did!

I live in Michigan, am 53, and have many blessings - a fabulous husband and son, a sweet, elderly guinea pig, work that I love, and great friends and family.

I started on the road to health several years ago, and while I've reached many goals, I still want to lose a lot of weight. This time around seems to be going well, and I think a lot of that is due to a more positive attitude about the journey and about life in general.

This looks like a wonderful group!

Hugs,
Jen

Hello everyone, My name is Patty. I am from Iowa. I came to SP to figure out how to carve out some time for myself because I take care of my grandkids, mother and a respite child. I am very excited to have already been given some very good ideas. The sun is shining in Iowa today. So very happy. love-Patty

Hello all! I am so glad I found this team. When I started my journey in January, I was hard on myself, hated myself, and was just waiting for an excuse to quit. Well, 4 months, and 200 miles later, I have discovered that I am so much stronger that I have ever given myself credit for! I have learned that I am important! And now I want to encourage and inspire as many people as I can! Weight loss is a hard thing to do, but it is amazing what you learn as you take the journey. God Bless!

Hi, I'm glad I found this team through a link from SparkCoach. I just finished writing a letter of encouragement to myself and was surprised at some of the positive things I thought of to say to myself. This is a really good thing you're doing here and I look forward to giving it a try.

Hi all!

I thought this looked like an interesting team - I'm trying to use blogging as a tool for weight management and find that a positive attitude helps me so much!


My program consists of eating well, getting good exercise and loving life as long and hard as possible.

Hello all! My name is Marissa and I'm re-starting my weight loss journey that was set back by some major negativity in my life. I'm actively trying to be more positive, so when I found this group I immediately wanted to be a part of it! I love the idea of countering negatives with a positive... It's amazing the impact a positive outlook can have!

Hi my name is Maria. I am a member of spark coach and after watching a spark people video on positive self talk, I decided it is time to make a change. Too much of the time I have beat myself up, yet been very encouraging to others. I really want to be successful in my goals and a light bulb just came on when I realized how important this area was for my success. I think that negative self talk has been the reason I have failed reaching my goals at other times in my life. I am excited about this team!

Welcome Tava, Kathi and Carol...it's great to have new people joining us. Stay as long as you want and as long as you are receiving what you need from the team. Do drop in to the Chit Chat lounge and say hello each day as that is where we generally hang out. If you are into walking, feel free to join our walking challenge or any of the other daily challenges. If you have a suggestion please let us know what you would like to see in the way of challenges.
Everyone has negatives that happen to them in their day, we don't mind if you share them, we just ask that you also share the positive within that experience. (example...I had a flat tire on my way to work, ended up late and my boss was mad. The positive, if I had not had the flat I would not have met the kind person that helped me out, sure I was late, but it was a good lesson for me to realize that life happens and I'm not always in control. My boss was mad, but she/he was probably was just concerned about a deadline that was looming and it was a great opportunity for me to practice being positive.)

Have a great day,
Hugs,
Wanda

Generally a pretty positive person, I really need to work on my self-talk. I tend to be a perfectionist, so beat myself up when I don't meet ALL my goals, forgetting what I DID accomplish. So I thought this would be a great place to "hang out" and focus on the positive things and retrain my mind.

Beginning to understand that I really am capable of accomplishing my goals and I'm worth it, the excitement is building

Looking forward to great days ahead!

My name is Kathi and I've been with SP for almost 4 years. You know, I didn't plan on joining a new Spark Team today but so frequently I've seen the name Positive Bloggers and I think, "That's me!" So here I am acting spontaneously, something I should really do more often. My journey has been absolutely revitalized by joining some new teams recently and I'm really looking forward to joining all of you!
