Sorry it took so long to reply to this thread. I am 50 years old and going to college. I have finished my Masters degree and working on a second one. I do enjoy the site and found it to be extremely helpful in my journey to a healthier life style.

Hi Crissy, I only know for me, there came a day when I got on the scales and I was 16 stone. 14lb in a stone. I have never been that way in my entire life and as co-incidence (which I dont believe in) would have it, a friend of mine told me she had just joined Spark People to lose some weight. Well - that was it I was ready. I believe we find things when we are ready to use them.

If you are not motivated now you will know where to come when you are ready.

I am so glad I found SP when I did. I am disabled so I am losing more slowly than others, but I am sticking to my eating plan one day at a time, and doing as much exercise as I can. It will be 11 weeks on Friday. I have lost 14lb. Weigh in day Friday - here I come.

Thank you SP.

Hello everyone,

I joined SP the same week all of you did! LOL! I am struggling to keep and become motivated. I don't know that I joined too soon, but I do know that I started with the best intentions and am suffering from the "a little knowledge is a bad thing" syndrome. I know what I need to do, and if I don't, I've been reading everything I can get my hands on here on the SP website. I am not tracking, because I am in denial and embarrassed; I am positive about everything including that I have eating issues, whether emotional, boredom, skipping meals (or days), etc. I also don't get enough sleep, whether my 19 1/2 month old twin girls sleep through the night. By the way I have five children all under 8 years old.

I have made it my mission to plan a trip to Sarasota in August, but will boycott swimsuits if I don't lose; EVEN THAT IS NOT MOTIVATING ME!!! I have joined several teams in a last ditch effort to find someone who can say what I haven't heard before.

The inaction thing by Carnegie is good, even the make someday today. The article about my weight killing me didn't even register more than a "oh my" but for some reason my brain is stuck. Any advice?

I look forward to catching everyone's journey tidbits, but am afraid that I've also put myself in a "rut" as one team member blogged.

I have hope, and I think if I didn't, I would be able to say I am hopeless; but that is another POSITIVE thing....no one, not even me is WITHOUT hope.

Good luck everyone on your journeys.

Chrissy

I seem to be a little late in joining this spark team, infact I think it may have been an auto join when I created my account but I left it by mistake. Anyway I joined March 10, 2009 and I absolutely love this site! I am a 28 year old mom and since my highest weight march 5, 2008 at 210 pounds (the day my daughter was born) I have lost 47 pounds, 9 of those so far are from spark people! My husband had definately noticed and I cant thank spark enough for giving me the tools to go further in my weight loss!

I can't believe I am down over 70 pounds since last year!

Hi there Cheryll, so happy you have come to join us. I am finding it a wonderful place to be. I am losing weight, drinking 8 glasses of water a day (unbelievable that I am doing this, especially to me), and even walking for exercise.

Looking forward to chatting with you.

Hugs Wispy.

Hi everyone my name is Shelly. I joined SP after my sister told me about the site. I lost over 60lbs before I joined. When I joined I didn't spend anytime here. I was so busy working and going to school and the gym. My sister was cheering me on and kept telling me I need to make a proper profile. Well since I've been on Spring break I have fallen for this site. I can't wait to long on. I am still finding new things. I am really enjoying my time here and it motivating me to keep going. I can't wait to share what I was able to accomplish for the day. I also joined the biggest looser club. Go Pink! Well I just found this team tonight just wanted to pop in.

Hi Stormy, welcome to Spark People. There are lots of great Teams to suit everyones specific needs as well as general Teams for motivation.

Hope you find what you need. We're all on the same journey - trying to lose those lbs and find a healthier way of living.

Wishing you all good wishes.

Hello everyone. I'm new to sparkpeople and still trying to learn my way around the site. I am 42 yrs. old and have 64 pounds to loose. I have been working out at a local gym with my personal trainer for 6 weeks now. In the first month I was able to drop 17 lbs. In 2 weeks we will weigh again and I'm not looking forward to it. I could really use a spark buddy to help me stay focused as I'm starting to get discouraged with all the work it is taking.

Hi there FOOSE77, so good to meet you. It seems to work all ways, a friend of mine has trouble getting through all her calories in a day as well. But she is succeeding.

Mine are so limited I have the opposite problem, staying under the limit, but one day at a time I am doing that too.

Hope to see you again.

Hugs Wispy.

Hi, Just wanted to introduce myself to your team. I am so shocked at how hard it is to eat enough calories every day, but I am getting better at it. Thanks for the motivation.

Hi Liz, a big warm Spark welcome to you.

This is only my third week here, but I am already making good friends and getting fitter and feeling healthier. I have decided only to weigh in on the first of each month, because I get addicted to the scales when I go on a diet. I am looking on this as a way to change my eating habits permanently to a healthier way of living (before I dont have any time left) emoticon I have joined several teams for support. Like you I am disabled, so one of these is a Disability Team. Great support there for people like us.

I am a great-grandmother with 5 kids, 9 grandkids and 5 great grand daughters.

Hugs Wispy.

I can't believe I never introduced myself to you!! So, a little late:
My name is Lori, I am from Lawton Oklahoma. I have a goal to lose about 45lbs. I am a brittle diabetic so that makes it difficult. I also have a very FULL schedule 6 days of the week so finding time to exercise is tough, but I do what I can. I'm already on my way, so I hope to keep in touch with all of you here on SparkPeople!!

With God, all things are possible!!

Hi there Pal, welcome to SP. I joined two weeks ago today and am just loving it. I couldnt imagine ever drinking 8 glasses of water a day, but I am even enjoying that. I will be 70 in August, and have more weight to lose than you, but together I know we can all make it.

Find Teams that you identify with. All the support is just waiting there.

We are all in this together.

Looking forward to seeing you around SP.

Hi what a lot of lovely new members. I joined last week and wanted to say welcome to you all.

I found it very confusing to find out how to post and where to find things. Id post a message and then never find that board again.

There are lots of teams look around for ones that suit your specific needs. I am disabled, so the disabilities ones suits me down to the ground.

I also joined Team Kiwi cos I live in New Zealand and Spark Ability is just a wonderful loving caring bunch of people who are really motivated.

Hope you all find what you are looking for one - day at a time.

Hugs Wispy.

Hi all! My name is Chandra and I'm just now posting to the boards! Hooray! I LOVE the nutrition tracker because I don't have to think about anything, I just enter my food and Spark can tell me how much more I'm "allowed" to have. It makes me accountable for everything! Have a great day!

Hello there Team Members,
Just finally getting around to introducing myself after 2 weeks on the site, getting used to all the gizmos and gadgets that we can use to help us maintain our goals.

The goal for me is weight-loss and increase my fitness levels, and even in this short space of time I see changes. Small changes but changes in the right direction.

I shall keep looking in and see how everyone is doing.. GO TEAM! emoticon

Hihihi :) I joined SparkPeople to support my husband who also joined. I am hoping this will keep us both motivated to lose weight.

There are a lot of trials involved as I have chronic pain and a laundry list of things to cope with, but I do what I can.

Every little thing counts, right?

Hi, I'm here to lose about 90 lbs and get back to what I was a year ago. I had a sudden "unexplained" weight gain of about 40 lbs in 2 months and another before that. My doctor has told me that my liver hasn't been "processing" fats properly so here I am. I am set on working hard to reach my goal. emoticon

Hello fellow members - it's taken me this long too work out how to post a message - yep I'm in that age bracket!!

I live in New Zealand and the time difference is going to be a bit awkward but never mind I'm still going to be watching you all (sounds creepy but I mean it in good spirit) and hopefully we can all motivate, inspire and have fun with eachother (that too sounds a bit creepy!!).

I'll sign off for now - until next time. Time now 9.55pm Monday 16 March.

See you later

Lynne

P.S. I'll be watching lol emoticon

Hey there! It sounds like we are in about the same boat! We are starting at about the same weight and are moving toward the same goal. Good luck and keep in touch!

Hi, my name is Becky and I live in central Pennsylvania. Between work and my three kids, it seems that I keep getting sidetracked from exercise and eating right. I joined to find a buddy (buddies) who would tell me that I need to find that time to exercise, and not tell me that it's okay that I missed a day. I look forward to talking with all of you!

Hi! I'm new. I have 18 lbs to lose to be at my goal. am hoping this site gives me more motivation to reach my goals in the time frame i have set for myself (6 mo).
And, Viola, if you look at this post, lbs to kg conversion is simply by 2.2. ie: kg x 2.2 = lb hope that helps.

Hi, my name is Viola and I live in Sweden. I joined here a few days ago and Im really trying to understand everything since my motherlanguage is not english. My biggest problem in this site right now is all the different weightmessures(?).
In Sweden we use kilos and kilograms so I dont really know how much a pound is.
Anyway, my overweight is about 20 kilos so I have a lot to loose and I think this site will be a great tool to use.

Hi everyone and welcome to the team. I know the site can be slightly overwhelming at first and until you explore it, and realize you can't damage it, you will be ok. I am Elvira or El. I am here to help you with anything you need or questions you might have. Please feel free to ask away. Or even add me as a friend so you can find me easier. I do lead 9 teams so I am usually off and on in between shooting jobs, (I work for a talent agency not the maffia).

I am just getting started with my weight loss journey. I am 38 and have been heavy most of my life. My Spark Page is a work in progress.. but feel free to drop by anytime . I will accept all who wish to add me to their friends. I am also looking for a Spark Buddy if anyone is interested. Have a great weekend All!!! emoticon emoticon

Hugs,

Hi Kate, I hope to see you again on this board for us newbies. There is a lot to take in, but we only need to do it a little bit at a time. We have a simiar amount of weight to lose, perhaps we could help each other. emoticon

Hi. My name is Kate, and I'm new to sparkpeople. I'm pretty overwhelmed by all the features this site offers, so I probably won't be around very often. I just wanted to introduce myself and say good luck to everyone on the journey toward better health!

hey there ya'll!!! i am recently married and hubby and i are from south carolina. i am a christian, hubby is not. i show him God's love every single day, but with no pressure. i have found that begging him to join me at church or with church related activities only makes things worse. even still, our love and respect for one another continues to grow! we have recently taken the step to become healthier people together. (you can read more about this on my page and in my blog...) i've been on sparkpeople for about a week now i guess, and have already found it to be a great motivational tool! looking forward to the future and our progress together! nice to meet everyone!

Hi. Day 2 for me. I'm 56 and want/need to lose 20 lbs. Feel like I keep trying to do it on my own, but the ice cream at midnight keeps catching up to me. I'm hoping with your help I can finally do it. I hate being this big. It will be hard for me to stay motivated. Getting into daily exercise which really feels good.

Hi everyone. I am new and wanting to stick with this program SO badly. I am having the hardest time losing weight after my last baby and want to and have to loose 25 before we can have our final child. I have to be at a certain weight for health reasons..long story. I have realized from this site that I do not eat near enough but I am not a huge food person so its hard for me to write it all down and not stress about it. I am so excited to get to know you better and I am here to help in anyway I can.

Hello Paula K08 glad you are on the team, and great to see so many of you are excited and exploring and already using the features offered. Sparkle can really help make a huge difference if you want it too. It's great for support, moral, and making friends. The type of friends you know you can count on to cheer you up on a bad day too. Please ask any questions, or let me know if you need anything. My name is Elvira, or call me El.

Hi everyone, my name is Paula. I joined a few days ago and am enjoying the site. I'm a single mom, with a full-time day job that is trying to lose 30 lbs.

This site looks good for recipe ideas, printable grocery lists & diet suggestions as well as getting that "extra push" and encouragement from like-minded people.

Good luck with you goals & count me in!!
