Hi Sharon,

I'll be your Spark Buddie for accountability. I need someone to bounce ideas off of and just to hold me to my goals and who expects the same from me.


SoHealthy,

I'll be a pal for you as well.

JJ

Hello from central PA! My name is Sharon, and I live in Camp Hill. I joined Spark People a year ago, and am thrilled to finally find a Pennsylvania team! I lost 20+ pounds, then sort of took the summer off. Didn't regain the weight (thanks to the helpful information on this website), but now it's time to pay attention again...before I do. Anyone looking for a Spark buddie, someone to share accountability?

Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself. --George Bernard Shaw

Hello everyone, I am from northeastern PA, and I am mainly here to lose weight. I need motivation to stay on a weight loss plan, and I need someone to talk to when I want to just give up on it. I have quite a bit of weight to lose. I do exercise, mostly cardio, everyday for atleast 30 minutes. I have no problem with the exercise part, but tend to really go overboard when I eat.

Hi Everyone,

I just signed up with SparkPeople and can't wait to get healthier. I've been feeling rather alone in the weight loss fight and am looking for support and hope to be able to give support as well. I find I'm much better at encouraging others than I am at encouraging myself.

I'm from eastern PA. Thanks for having a team I can join.

Have a great weekend !

JJ

Hello, My name is Karyn, mother of 5. Been on Spark people since March 2011 have had some success but I haven't been consistent every month. Have gained some of the weight back (currently 7 lbs above what my ticker says) and I seem to be stuck there. Have been increasing my exercising lately and hope to start losing again soon. Hope to meet some people from this great state that are doing this too.

My friends,
Life is short, and we do not have much time to gladden the hearts of those who make this earthly pilgrimage with us. So be swift to love, make haste to do kindness, shower abundant hospitality on friend and stranger, walk in justice, that you may follow the path of mercy and love.

Hi all. I'm Fran and I'm from a small town outside of York, PA - Red Lion. In the past three months I found myself detouring from a healthy lifestyle - big time! My bloodwork is all over the place, I've regained weight, and my exercise goals have suffered greatly. At my age, there's really not time for do-overs anymore. So, I'm hoping that with some help I can get back on track and stay there. Thanks in advance for your support!

Hello everyone, my name is Steve and I live in northeast Pennsylvania in a town called Bloomsburg. I started my weight loss journey almost 2 years ago at 456 lbs and I am down to 355 lbs, looking to get to 250 lbs. I have been using a diet plan that I was setup with by a trainer at my gym but I have hit a plateau and haven't lost any weight for 3 weeks so a friend recommended this site to me.

Hi all!

My name's Kat, I'm from bucks county and I just came back on sparkpeople after a 2 year hiatus (ugh). I'm excited to get to know new people and have some inspiration rub off on me!

HI all, my name is Stephanie~
Gotta luv the rain in June..good excuse to pop in a dvd and sweat! I went to the Dr.'s last week because i've been feeling fatigue & my weight's been stuck in the 200's, my blood work came back perfect. No excuses to fall on, my diet orders....good old fashion calorie counting & exercise above what I do at work. I work in in the ER & can easily walk 12000-17000 steps any given day. My challenge for june is to stick to my exercise routine.

Hi Everyone!!!

My name is Brittany and I am a newbie to the site! I'm about an hour from Pittsburgh so I'm a western PA girl!!
I'm currently a student studying Commercial Music Technology, and am feature twirler for my University Marching Band. I also am involved in the choir and in the acapella singing group as well! I am also involved in pageants, and just recently competed in the Miss Pennsylvania Scholarship pageant.
My goal is to become fit and healthy for life and to lose about 20 lbs!!! I hope to help others on their journeys to weight loss as well!

Hello, Team!

My name's Kathy and I live in PA, near Philadelphia, but not in the city. I have been here before, but after having tremendous success, I left SP and fell off the old SparkWagon. HARD!

I'm now almost back to where I started a couple of years ago and pretty mad at myself for letting this happen. Now I'm back and ready to rock again! This is my first full day back and so far, so good.

Some mind-numbing info about me: I'm married with an adult son who as Autism. I'm an amateur photographer and an avid dog lover. I work full time at an agency who provides services to people with intellectual disabilities and my goal is to retire as soon as possible, but not later than age 62. I love to read and carry my Kindle with me everywhere (Yes, even there!) emoticon

Biggest challenges: making healthy changes permanent and learning to love exercise.

My motto for this trip down the scale (and my last!):

It's never too late to live the life you love!!!!!!

I look forward to getting to know you and wish all of you success with your healthy lifestyle changes!

Spark and Sparkle, Team!

Hi All! I am 56 and am 5' 1"....I need support to help me get down to my goal weight. I joined SparkPeople yesterday and working towards building some goals and accomplishing them. I have tried many diets but I go up and down. I don't want to think of this as another Diet Plan, I would like to be able to express myself and in the same time as I conquer my goals I can help others with theirs!

Taking each Day at a Time!

Hello! I am Breanne. I joined spark on 2/2/12, but just found this team! I live in NW PA. I am on a journey to lose 121 lbs. I am getting married in 2 years. I live with my fiance & our 13 year old daughter. My daughter is all about eating right & exercising with me. My fiance on the other hand, is not. That makes it hard sometimes.

Good Luck to everyone! Looking forward to supporting & being supported.

Hello all! I am a previous Spark user but sort of let it slide for quite a while. I am finally back and determined to reach the goals I have set for myself :)

I live in Enola, PA ( Harrisburg Area ) with my 12 year old daughter and also my boyfriend of 4 years..both of whom have made noises about joining me on my journey. We could all stand to lose quite a few pounds lol.

Wish us luck, please!! I hope to hear from locals and anyone else who would like to share ideas, advice, or just BS a little.

Hi everyone. I'm returning to Spark- signed up a few years ago but never followed through with it. I'm in my late 30's, live in Quakertown and am married.

I'm not setting any number specific health/weight goals yet, because I'm trying to take things slowly. I am trying to make it a habit to check in on the site daily & keep up on a food & exercise log. Once I'm comfortable that doing that stuff is ingrained as a habit, I'll look at measurable goals. I do have a pretty substantial amount of weight that needs to go away, but I know that just by tracking everything, I tend to make healthier choices.

Hi! My name is Lugina, I am just starting today. I am from NE PA, I just started working as a Sous Chef at a local Bed and Breakfast. Cooking is something I always wanted to do and I found someone to give me a chance at it! I am so happy there. I would like to make a difference in my life, I have had a couple of bad few years, the loss of my mother, went thru a divorce, lost a couple of jobs, having financial problems due to lack of work, addictions, bad relationships, horrible self esteem...
Today I am making a change and starting here! I am so glad I found this site. I am 252 lbs and my goal is 150. I know I can do this I just need strength, focus and encouragement and I hope I can find that here! Nice to meet you all!

I WILL LIVE A HEALTHY LIFE!

Hello and welcome to all the newbies :) I'm just a baby on here myself but I can say it really helps you stay on track if you work the system. I get off track a lot as a mother of a CRAZY 13 month older running clumbing monster, so I forget to eat, I forget to log, and I have my own sick days or hers when I don't work out. Just remember, don't get down on yourself, don't blame, just move forward and do better. No one can make you feel inferior without your permission! That includes yourself! Anyone feel free to visit my page or contact me for for motivation or a cyber hug. None of us are perfect, we are all perfectly imperfect...

Occasionally limited by my health, but never by my heart

Hello message board! I'm JC and a first-timer that joined on 3/4/12. Haven't lost that first pound yet but I did get rid of the 2 pounds I gained right after weigh-in. My wife and I live in SW PA near Pittsburgh and intend on losing about 40 pounds. Any help or support greatly appreciated.

I do like the tracking methodism of both nutrition and exercise and seem to be staying on target so far. Have also learned how to add foods and their related nutrition labels and this helps me know more precisely what my daily intact is.

Hi! I'm a Amanda, I'm 26 years old. My goal is to lose 63 pounds in the next year.
I usually rush to lose weight, so this is the first time I'm going to take it slow and healthy! :)

My big goal is to get in 10000 step/day (with my trusty pedometer), LOL. :)

It's nice to be here!

Hello, I am from Camp Hill, PA. I am married with 2 kids; a 17 year old and a 7 year old. The 7 year old keeps me very busy. I gained the weight during my second pregnancy due to the death of dad and being put on bed rest. I have been having trouble losing it because I had started back to school because I felt that was more important at the time. I worked full-time and any free time I had was spending with my baby, child and doing homework. I started looking at this site back in December 2011 and haven't been using it, but now that spring is here and have baseball and soccer starting my son; I thought now would be the time to start. I have no motivation and really need to get some. So any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. I don't have the time to join a gym because of all the running I will be doing for my son. So, thank you in advance.

Hi, I'm a new member from the Poconos, almost 40 but feel like I'm 80. I'm hoping to lose a few pounds and relive some lower back pain, as well as having more energy and maybe meeting someone from my area to be a walk buddy!

Hello, I see I am not the only returning member. I currently live in Fairchance, PA and since I am now 54 years old. I am trying to get my weight uner control again. I am a over the road truckdriver and dont have much time to exercise. It is pretty hard to lose weight sitting behind the steering wheel all the time.

Remember you can't shake hands with a closed fist.

Hello. Brand new here, after seeing alot of positive feedback about this site I decided what the heck! I am a single mom, 2 kids ages 21 and 11. Live in the little town of Baden, PA, which is about 20 miles outside of Pittsburgh. Have bounced between 180-200lbs for the last way too many years. This time for me, this is a lifestyle and lifelong change. Don't get me wrong, I would love to be 110 lbs, but I am more focused on exercise, portion control, and healthy eating. I think everything else will kinda fall into place.

Hello I just moved back to PA with a daughter and a lot of extra weight. I used to use spark people but have not since it has changed. I am excited to start losing the weight and to get healthy enough to play with my daughter and not be worn out.

Hi All, Starting up with SparkPeople again. I just turned 60 in October and am so out of shape and overweight I don't enjoy doing anything anymore,. I need to get serious about this and hope to find some buddies and support on here. I live in Mechanicsburg, just west of Harrisburg.. Work off of 83 in Harrisburg. Would love to find a walking buddy; maybe tennis but a slow tennis partner as it has been years and as I said I am out of shape. Look foward to talking with everyone and having partners in this journey and challenge.

Hi All new Member

Just want to welcome you to our team. To CHERY1960

I understand your frustration with your weight. I have been overweight for a long time too. I have a condition called hypothyroidism which not only causes weight gain, but the medication used to control it causes weight gain as well. But, I am doing the best I can, by exercising and trying a controlled meal plan. I wish you lots of luck.You will find plenty of support on SP. Welcome ALL!!!!
