Hi, I'm new here. I live in Lancaster County also. I've been overweight for a long time, but after a battle with breast cancer last summer, I'm taking a pill that makes my joints hurt. I figure losing weight will help my joints, as well as becoming more active. I work full-time, and I also run "Holiday Hope", a local non-profit organization. Glad to be here!!!

I heard a guy at the gym say, "I don't feel my age. This is why we do this." So inspiring!

I am new to the site and I am from Lancaster county. I started my weight loss journey last February and I have managed to lose and keep off 50lbs. I still have 70 to go and I am looking for new motivation. I belong to another weight loss community as well but I am feeling like I need additional help. Something new and fresh. I like the trackers here much better than the other site and I really want to start keeping track of what I am eating.
Anyway..Hello! PA! emoticon

Hi,

I'm Kenya. I'm new here as well. My boyfriend and I decided that a fun way to get fit would be to set a challenge for July to see who would win. Since I am restricted by not having a car, and since I live alone, I decided that this forum would be a good way to start tracking my progress.

Here we go!!!

Hey all :) To begin, my name is Nicole, I am 24 years old and 295 lbs, and I have had it. I'm from the good ol' Northeast PA. I am back to Sparkpeople for the umphteen time. I have toyed around with a nutrition track here.. a fitness track there.. my longest "log in" streak topped out at a whopping 9 days. But, alas.. if at first you don't succeed....

I am back for good this time. I had finally decided that another year had gone by and I had failed yet again! All those diet and exercise bouts behind me and none the healthier. I had decided that enough was enough.

My long term (very long term... lol) goal is to get down to 135. I know it'll take awhile:) I'm just taking it one day at a time! Can't wait to get some spark friends so we can get there together.

Nic

Hello! My name is Nichole. I'm 35 and have high blood pressure. I have packed on some weight over the past year. I'm currently at 155 and I want to be 120. I'm 5'1". My company is sponsoring a trip to Hawaii so I want to be in tip top shape when I go. My goal is to lose this weight by June 1. I also want to incorporate exercise as well as healthy eating.

We put a small garden out, and I started canning. I know it sounds like a lot of work but it keeps you from eating in the evenings. We also freeze peppers and onions. Aldi's is also a godsend!

Hi everyone, this is my first post ( I hope I'm doing it right! ) I joined about two weeks ago, and in my first weigh in I went from 280 to 276! 4 lbs! But now I am craving bad food (all that damn halloween candy that is in the stores!), I feel like I am already falling behind, despite the fact I have been hitting the gym and eating in moderation! So I just wanted to introduce myself and hopefully find someone that will call me out and hold me accountable. But anyway, a little about me- I'm in my early 20's, I go to Widener University (if anyone here is familiar with WU), I will be graduating in Dec., I live with my dad, I have an awesome boyfriend....pretty good life, except for the weight! I am just looking for support as I go through my rough last semester.

Hi everyone! I'm eighteen and new to this site and hoping to really start getting healthier. My family and friends tease me for trying to become more health conscious, but I think it's something really important, especially because for a while my mother was seriously concerned about me getting diabetes with the way I ate but wouldn't exercise. My brother is actually trying to put on weight right now and so my family caters more to what he wants to eat than what I do, which is something healthy that will also help me lose some of the weight I can't seem to shake. I really hope that this will get me motivated to change and start taking control of my own life. emoticon

Hi, received a phone call from my sister who introduced me to this site....so here I am. My story....Until 6 years ago, I was an active and healthy physician with 3 teen boys. I had a life threatening illness- hospitalized for several weeks, gained 40 lbs in 4 weeks (on steroids). I am finally well enough to try to put my body back together. I joined a gym (pitiful to watch me now, but I anticipate improvement) and now need to do something about my diet. Unfortunately I have developed a carb addiction....when I felt really bad, I would give myself a treat (ice-cream etc). A friend asked me, "Well, do you really feel any better after you eat something bad like that?" I explained that unfortunately I did....I must be quite the seratonin junkie- I find I feel really good for about 30 min.....then crash, start the cycle over. If I get off of the carb abuse, I know I will feel much, much better....and for more than 30 min. So, good luck to you all and here I go. Thanks,dr.j

Hi, I'd like say welcome again to Keystone Slimdown and Spark People! emoticon

I'm so glad U joined emoticon group!

Good Luck on your Sparked journey!

To get your cute little tracker, you first have to create your Spark Page.It is easy and fun to create. Take a look at mine, and some others, and you will get an idea of how much you can do with your own page. Each one is different, the point is to MAKE it your OWN! When you create your page, you will also be given a chance to create your tracker bar. If you have already created a page. Go to your page, click on edit page, and scroll down almost to the bottom. You will see a place there to edit you tracker bar.

Hope this helps!

I'm glad to find a supportive group to help me reach my goal. I'm on my way to reaching the weight my Dr. recommends but I still have about 45 lbs. to go. I'm so happy to see I'm not alone.

Also, can anyone tell me where you get the cute goal trackers?

Hello everyone :) I have to admit that I was pretty intimidated in posting here for some reason. However, I got myself to do it and here I am now! A little about me: 26 years old and my weight has been steadily getting higher and higher with every passing year. I'm trying to get a handle on it finally, and I'm trying to take it one step at a time. I'm looking for buddies in my area who might be interested in exercising together. I'm from the Montgomery County area. Good luck to everyone on your goals and I hope you all succeed!

Hello to everyone - Even though I have been a Spark member for about 7 months this is the first time I am going "public" . I'm not sure why I have been frightened to put anything on the posts but it seems a little intimidating. I am "on again - off again" with this weight loss and I'm hoping that by posting I will be able to keep my focus. Need to get up and move !!!

Hi, my name is Shardai and I am from Philadelphia. I am 23 years old and have 122 pounds to lose. My biggest problem is emotional eating and lack of motivation. I know all the right things to do but just don't do it. In April of 2010, I was at my all time high at 350. I came down to 280 and promised to never get that high again. Recently, I went back up to 302 and I am desperate to try to lose it on my own one more time before I consider surgery, so I signed up for Sparkpeople. I am a nursing student so between classes and working, I don't have a lot of time to cook. Hopefully this will work.

Congrats on upcoming marriage. I wish you good luck in that and in your weight loss. I just started (for the second time) and this time I will stick with it. This is a great website with a lot of helpful people. the only advice I can give you is to double check the recipes for calorie count some are off and every calorie counts. Dont give up the first week I was disappointed but now at three weeks I am happy with my progress

Hello!

I'm Angela. I'm 27 and from Central PA. The town is too small or I'd name it! Let's just say I'm 45 minutes east of State College. I started on SP on Sunday and WOW, I've made some progress already. This has been the easiest feature to use and I'm so impressed with the lack of motivation and support here. Mostly I am amazed at the fact that there really are other people like me that need to get healthy and lose just as much as I need to! I've been excessively overweight/obese most of my life and I just decided this year is the year. I just turned 27 on the 2nd of June so I gave myself the weekend to get ready and started on Sunday! I'm trying to see if I can lose half of myself. I know that sounds crazy, but it IS POSSIBLE!

Good luck to everyone else, and don't be strangers!

HI Maria,
I too am married to a chef. Which means he doesn't cook often at home since he cooks every day at work, so we end up eating unhealthy fast food or pre processed . I have been on a diet yo yo for several years and hope that sparkpeople is the answer I have been looking for. My goals are to loose weight, be healthy and encourage my husband to do the same! We are new to pennsylvania and live in Selinsgrove.

Hi everyone!! My name is Dani. I'm a member of the fire police at Red Hill Fire Company, in the small town of Red Hill, Pennsylvania. I'm not really new to spark. I was here a couple of years ago, under a different name. I lost 50 pounds then. Unfortunately, I went through a pretty bad divorce and gave up on spark and my weight loss goals, and gained it all back. I recently decided to give marriage one more try, and got engaged to a wonderful man, who is also in the fire service. We're planning to be married in December of 2012, and I don't want to be a fat bride.

Hello Everyone

My name is Maria and am brandspanking new to SP. am a 44 yr old wife and mother.Married for over 20 yrs to a Chef and working for a food service company so needless to say I am always surrounded by food and it takes a lot of planning ahead to make sure I eat healthy meals. I have struggled with my weight for the past 10 years up one year down the next, I am ready to lose it and have it stay off. This is it for me, any and all tips on the site are appreciated, I don't have a problem working out as long as I don't stop, if I stop that means at least 5 days off, right now am on day 3 of working out so am on an upswing emoticon

I have been married to my best friend for over 30 years and we moved here after retiring from the Army. We are blessed with a wonderful daughter and son-in-law who made us grandparents 14 months ago to a beautiful little girl named Audrey. She is my motivation for completing my weight loss journey. Neither my husband nor I are from PA originally and have no other family here expect our daughter and her family now.

Looking forward to getting to know some of my neighbors here on SP.

The Serenity Prayer for Weight Loss

God grant me the serenity
To make good food choices;
Courage to turn away from baked goods;
And energy to exercise daily.
Living healthy one day at a time;
Enjoying my journey;
Accepting that the road to wellness can be hard;
Taking the tools of better eating out into the world
As I should, free from the bad habits of the past;
Trusting that making wise decisions today will pay off tomorrow;

Hi, I'm Betsy and I live in NW Pa, in a little area called Van, and I found sparkpeople on a search for a way to track our food. My daughter is 15 and was diagnosed with PCOS and I am trying to get my weight down and helping her and my family eat healthy and exercise more. We use the wii fit for our weight and she has lost enough now she is not considered obese anymore, just overweight and the doctor was so excited for her and I am too. She joined Spark Teens to help her track her intake and keeps track of her exercise and water intake. This is a great forum, thanks,

Hi all,
I am not new to here, but I can't remember when I started. Well, tried to start, the thought was there but not the motivation. I am finally ready to get serious about my health. I tried to start a diet a few weeks ago, and did nothing but gain weight. I am now at my heaviest even counting pregnancy! I can't do this anymore. My DH told me he was embarrassed to join the pool this year because of how fat I am and my kids are not skinny either. I am now affecting my children, and that will motivate me if nothing else will, but I know I am going to need a LOT of help. I hope that I can lean on everyone here for support. I won't get much at home.
Thanks,
I'm from Maple Glen BTW about 20 minutes from Philly.

I decided to start a new spark team. I live in Delaware County in Pa and did not see any Delaware County Spark Teams. I invite you to visit my new Spark Team. Thanks

Hello all, I'm new here just wanted to intrduce myself. I live just outside of Gettysburg, I'm a mom of a 15 year old girl. I'm planning my wedding for next year and would love to be in the 140 or better 130 before my wedding. After moving close to my family I started putting on weight bad do to family dinner every Sunday at Grandmas house. When I lived in California I walked every where because everything was close, now that I live here you have to drive so I dont walk like I did back in Ca. I have a good support group 5 of my friends and I try to workout 6 days a week sometimes we all make it and sometimes work gets in the way, but we are all doing great. when I started I was 170lb. but Im down to 163.4 we started our team about 7 week ago to drop the pounds.

These are some very great ideas. Even if you don't travel for work, it's good to keep healthy stuff with you. My DH and I like to go for 'rides'. We will just start out and go on roads where we have never been before and sometimes end up as far as 50 miles from home. We always make sure we have snacks with us before leaving as we never know where we are going to end up or how long we are going to be gone.
Of course, with the price of gas, we probably won't be able to do that much anymore...but it is does make for a great day!!

If we saw all the difference even the tiniest of our prayers make, and all the people those...prayers were destined to affect...we would be so paralyzed with awe...that we would be unable to get up off our knees for the rest of our lives.

Lisa, thanks I will try this especially packing my own lunch. My sister told me to carry a book & find a local park instead of going to restaurants

carry your own food, get a small cooler. my sister travels for work, she carries her own munchies. in the evening while she stays in motels. she goes to the local grocery store
checks out the deli and if there isn't anything in there she buys bread or a roll gets hillshire
farms ultra thin deli meat and has a sandwich with a clear broth soup. she always has fruit
with her. she has even taken her own salad for lunch on the day she leaves.

Hi My name is laurie & I live in Jackson Center, PA I am on day 2 of Spark & am already finding it very helpful. About 2 years ago I lost 30 lbs. on my own but then suffered some health issues. I gained back 20 and am now healthy enough to try again. I travel for work so fastfood was my daily lunch and one of my goals is to eliminate 1 fastfood meal a day. Any suggestions please help. thanks

Hi, my name is Robin and I live in DuBois. I lived my teen years in Medix Run...then moved south for awhile and returned to PA in 1998.
I have been a member of SP for quite a while now, was once, then quit awhile, then came back.
It's nice to see a group from PA.
I'm happy to be here.
