Hello Everybody:)

I'm Jes! I joined SparkPeople on September 3rd of this last year & have lost 56.6lbs since then! I am a Stay At Home Mama to my gorgeous little man, Maddox! I joined this site after experiencing many health scares after having my son & my main goal is to become a role model of health & strength for my family! I don't want to be thought of as the fat, sick, tired Mom, Significant Other, Daughter, Sister or Friend ever again! I am taking my life back & I am running with it because I am WORTH fighting for! My current goal that I'm working towards is to have lost a total of 80lbs my son's 2nd birthday on August 8th & I know I demolish my goal because I have TOO much to live for to ever stop fighting for my health!

Stay Positive Friends, Change IS Coming,

Jes

You are far too smart to be the ONLY thing standing in your way.

If it's important to you, you'll find a way - - If not, you'll find an excuse.

I intend to accept my body today, love my body tomorrow & appreciate my body always.

Stop wearing your wishbone where you're backbone ought to be.

Be an ENCOURAGER; The world has plenty of CRITICS already. - Dave Willis

Welcome to the team/family Pam! I can empathize with you as I reached my goal back in 2010, and then fell off the wagon and haven't been working out. As you, I've got to do start doing something myself.
Best of luck to you and so glad you joined!

Hi Im Pam. I am 50
I first joined sparkpeople in 2007.
Reached my goal and disappered. But I have gained and lost over the years and now Im back after gaining again.
I pulled out my old pictures the other day and said I gotta do something or I will be right back where I was at one point so here I am back at spark again.

I work full time on my feet all day and I love making jewelry in my spare time.

Hello Jill! Glad to have you join our team. I think you'll really like the team. It's a very supportive team and many of us have known each other for several years. We're all in a different place in respect to losing weight. I look forward to getting to know you. Feel free to post a new topic or if you need help. You might be interested in joining the February BSG (Buddy Support Group) Challenge. The sign-up is on the main team page under the Announcements Forum. Good luck in achieving all of your goals! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hello everyone,

My name is Jillian (or Jill, I go by both!). I'm both new to Spark People and this team :) I'm 25 (I'll be 26 on Feb 12th). I'm a new mom. My daughter, Perynn Jane, turned 5 months yesterday. She is my inspiration for everything. I want to get healthy for her.

I've struggled with weight and food issues since I was 16 years old. I've been underweight, healthy, overweight, and am now in the morbidly obese category (even though I hate those words). I'm determined to get down to a healthy weight over the next year through diet and exercise, you know the healthy way, not exactly how I've dealt with it in the past.

My self esteem over the years has gotten worse and worse to the point where I don't even go out of the house and I'm afraid to make new friends in my area. I honestly have no idea how to even make friends anymore actually, pretty depressing to admit.

I'm here on spark people at the recommendation of my doctor. I just recently joined a medical weight loss program to help me deal with my weight loss and food problems. Since joining, I have found it is so much more than I expected it to be and I love the amount of support I can find on here.

I'm hoping some of you can help support me and I'd love to help support you too!
So hello everyone! I'm excited to be a part of this team emoticon emoticon emoticon

First Name: joanna
Birthday: feb 5
When did you join Spark People? it was summer of 2011.
Where are you from? greece. originally an islander, now off living in athens
What are your aspirations/goals? i want to write. and solve the soulmate riddle. find a place dark and peaceful and just be (free).
How can we help inspire you to reach those goals? how you can help me? i don't think you can. emoticon i love being part of a community. in real life i don't feel i belong anywhere. i love helping others. i could have pursuited a psychiatrist's career; if it weren't for the pain. i feel in place when i'm useful to others. i love seeing people doing their best, getting the best and be happy; especially if i know i've somehow helped them get there. so that's why i'm here i guess, to do some good without having to go out there where it's so hateful and lonely.
Add anything else you would like to share (pets, hobbies, what work you do, etc.):i'm 21 years old (almost) and i study economics. and i'm always looking for buds, so add me! :D

Hi just joined the team I am not new to Spark am in my 3 year. I have lost over 30 pounds and have about 30 to go. I love to exercise and do it most every day. I like the challenge this team has each day and have done today, felt good to feel the muscle burn.
I am married and in my 50's. I live in Sacramento CA but have travel a bit around the US.
I love to do push ups and am currently doing 50 a day most every day.

It doesn't matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.

Exercise : you don't have time not to.

Be wise in the use of time. The question in life is not how much time do we have. The question is what shall we do with it.

Who I am really keeps surprising me.

Amy, you'll be so glad you joined this team which, to me, is a family. Many of us have known each other for years and we all (team leaders) do our best to keep it active and especially positive. That's why we have so many leaders so we can all take on different tasks.

Thanks for the welcome Krazy4katz and Havasujules (and the prayers!). I'm happy to report that even though my weight only went down 2 lbs (which is a little bit of a bummer, but at least it's DOWN and not UP!) my A1C (which measures your average blood glucose level for the last 3 months went from a 12.7 (extremely high) to a 7.6 emoticon
I was quite nervous to l find out the result this morning but I am so beyond happy with this number. It shows me that all the work and effort I put in (even with not being as diligent over the last month) that good things happen when you work for them!

I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Hi Mary...Welcome to the team. It looks like we joined this team about the same time.

Commitment issues concerning weight can be a challenge. Boy do I know. I ended up changing that to just wanting to get healthy and make small changes. How old are your daughters? Could you and the girls and Mom start by committing to a "Girls Night Out - Walk" one night/afternoon a week?

A stationary bike could be a great thing....I wouldn't mind saving to buy one myself.
Welcome and Good Luck

Welcome to the team AMANDAKP84! I am also new to the team. I understand the weight issues from my own personal experience as well as the diabetes issue as my husband received his diagnosis a few years back. One thing he is just learning, is that when you find a plan that works -- Plan your work and then work your plan. What has worked for him is cutting the carbs and upping the protein.

I will be praying for you and your visit to the doctor today. I am not a team leader or anything, but if you need something - let me know.

Hello all! I just joined this team and am excited to meet you all! I have a very significant amount of weight to lose, as well as dealing with a fairly new diagnosis of diabetes. I'm finding that I'm struggling with all of my weight loss/fitness goals recently (maybe it's just the holidays) so I'm looking for a little encouragement and accountability. I'm heading to the doctor for my first official post diagnosis checkup this afternoon and once I see where I am sitting health wise I'll be setting my goals for the coming months/year. Have a GREAT day everyone!

Hello! My name is Mary, my bday is June 5th, and I am from Maryland. I, really, really want to and have to lose weight. I want to for myself, for my health, for my daughters, for my mom. I am having or have had commitment issues concerning losing weight. Things I like are reading, animals, I want to get back into sewing and crochet. I like movies and new things (ideas, etc). I like walking, should do more, going to fix my stationary bike. Any and all inspiration will be greatly appreciated! Thank you! emoticon

Sandra,

I understand very well the accountability and getting to know your team aspect. I have dropped several teams because of in activity or lack of support. Hang in there and don't get discouraged. It has taken me a year to find a couple of good teams.

When did you join Spark People? Joined last week!
Where are you from? Alberta, Canada
What are your aspirations/goals? to once and for all lose all the weight (45lbs) and keep it off.
How can we help inspire you to reach those goals? Accountability, maybe small team challenges, getting to know each other so I dont ditcjh out of here in a few months

I have a kitty and a hubby,both very much like children! We are vegetarian (well, not the cat). We enojoy travelling and have visited many places and are planning our next big European vacation.

I look forward to getting to know everyone!

Hi! I am Julie. New to the team but not to sparkpeople. In 2013 I lost nearly 30#. I am so much healthier now. But I have about 20 to go. I gained 4 between. Christmas and New Years and have been nursing an injured foot for the last 3 weeks....so need Lots of encouragement and motivation.

Also WAY over ate tonight (see my blog about no excuses).

I am glad to have found this team.

I am 48 yrs. old and my husband and I are Salvation Army Officers currently appointed to Lake Havasu City AZ.

I'm sorry for the late intro! I am previous A&I member from over a year ago. I recognize some of the names. I look forward to catching with those of you I do know and getting to know the ones I don't know. I know from past experiences, this is an amazing team!

First Name:Simone
Bday: 7/29
When did you join Spark People? 7/2009
Where are you from? Northern Virginia
What are your aspirations/goals? To continue to get fit and healthy on this journey while supporting others who are trying to do the same!
How can we help inspire you to reach those goals? Support is the key for me.
Add anything else you would like to share? I love to read and formed an addiction to getting my sweat on through walking & running. My greatest choice is my daughter Emma. She is my why!

Hi everyone, my name is Jen. I am new to this team and my present username but not new to Spark. I have been on and off (for various reasons or should I say EXCUSES) Spark far too many times! We all know that no matter how you think you have things in control, without the help and support of people who are on the same "page" as you, you are sure to experience some difficult times and maybe even failure. To make a long story short, I have fallen, picked myself up and aspire to reach my goals with the help, encouragement and inspiration of fellow Sparkers whom I will, in return, do my best to encourage and inspire. I came across this team while looking for a team that would fit the criteria of aspire and inspire and I like what I have read so far so, here I am ... your new team mate. I look forward to participating along side all of you as we journey towards our goals.

Helen, we're glad to have you on the team! There's no need for you to do as much cardio as anyone else is doing. We're here to support and encourage you no matter what fitness level you are at.

I'm glad you belong to a Challenge team to help keep you motivated and moving.

We look forward to getting to know you and helping you on your journey to a healthier, fit you!

I just quit and rejoined in less than 24 hrs. b/c I just can't keep up with others on the team who can do all that cardio, etc. I have to take it slower. But a nice team member explained I can go at my own pace, and I do like everyone so far on this team!

I think my page pretty much explains who I am and where I live - Calgary, Alberta Canada.

I do belong to a Challenge team, so my aims are sincere! LOL

Hope to get to know everyone better with time

Hi! My name is Barb, and I am 61. Today is my 2 month anniversary of being on SP. One of my goals is to lose 7 lbs. and maintain. I have only lost 1, but I am learning to eat healthy, walk (I do a lot of walking) more, I am on the team walk/jog to a 5k. I am on my 3rd week of that, and I love it. I really enjoy the running along with the walking. I have felt so much better, both emotionally, and physically since joining. I have met some remarkable friends. I could go on & on, but will leave it for another time. I am happy to be on this team. Hoping to make some lasting friends. emoticon

Hi, I'm Tonya. I'm fairly new to SparkPeople (just joined in June). I've been actively trying to lose weight and get in shape since April and so far I've lost approximately 20 lbs but really the best thing is the way I feel. I feel so much healthier and happier since I started exercising pretty much daily. I have so much more energy. I joined SparkPeople to find recipes, workout ideas, and just PEOPLE who were experiencing all the same things I was. This group looked like a great place to get support and encouragement and just make some new friends!

About me: I am married (13 years in Sept). We have six kiddos, and we live in West Texas and I am a SAHM.

Hi I am Rachel! I have been going strong with my restart with sparkpeople in Jan. I have lost 15lbs so far! And now I am working through a plateau! I have joined a gym and started with a personal trainer! I have been a member since 2007. I saw this team mentioned in a SparkCoach forum and thought I'd look into a team for motivation!

Hello everyone,
I have been off and on on Sparkpeople. I saw this team on my joining team so I decided to try it out. I see that the team is alive and well.
I am a mother of 4; 20,19,16,12. I am almost 50 and controlling my hormones have been very challenging. I have noticed that it has effected my eating as well. I exercise 6 days a week doing various things. I like to Spin and lift weights. I must say the last few years my body has been changing. So that is why I am here. I enjoyed the stories and I look forward to new ones. emoticon

I thought I'd re-introduce myself since it's been about a year since I was active on the team.

I'm Melanie. I'm 36, I live in Georgia, my husband is in the Army (and currently overseas more often than not), and since I was last year, I've managed to give my 4-year-old son (nicknamed LittleDude) a little brother (now 4 months old, nicknamed Squeaky). At the moment, I'm about 10 pounds lighter than I was when I got pregnant with Squeaky, so the good news is that the baby weight is gone. The bad news is that I'm STILL working on what I've now dubbed the "pre-schooler weight" and learning to live a healthier life.

Hi! my name is Katie. I am a single mom of a 11 year old daughter. I began my weight loss journey 3 years ago when I weighed 250 pounds. I am currently at 178 pounds. I am working on my binge/ under eating and taming the sweets challenge. I hope to make lots of friends. I signed up on the June challenge but so far one person other than me is not on a team

Hi everyone, my name is Debbie, I am 54 and I am from Lancaster Ohio. I am happily married and the mother of 3, ages 35, 33 and 13. I was with SP for over 2 yrs. and former leader of Laugh a Lot and Be Your Best team. My spouse suffered a heart attack 2 yrs. ago and it took me from here and I have since returned 3 wks ago and am so glad to be back.

It was through reading a blog from one of your team members today that inspired me to look up the team and decide to join. I loved seeing the activity of members and the positive, upbeat spirit that shines through.

I now have much weight to lose and I know no other place to find the support and encouragement than here at SP. I love the outdoors, like to read mysteries and novels, crochet and loom knit, embroidery and sew as well as cooking and baking, and love trying new recipes. My favorite form of exercise is Walking. Before becoming disabled I worked for a major credit card company in collections and was a licensed beautician for over 30 yrs.

I look forward to making new friends here, any of you that are from Ohio I would love to invite you to join my new Ohio the Beautiful team.

Debbie (Leader of Journey to a new You).

Hi, I've named myself after my special kitty, Candy. She died last summer and will always hold a special place in my heart!

I'm looking for a team that has a challenge that incorporates both fitness and nutrition! This seems to be the perfect fit for me! I'd love to join in the BSG challenges! Just tell me what I need to do, to join in!

A little about myself. I've been with SP for several years off and on. I even closed my account a year ago thinking I could do this on my own, and guess what....yeah, I'm back and loving it!!!

I'm 55 yrs old, been married for 31 years to my very best friend, have 8 children and 3 grandchildren. My one and only daughter is getting married this June 8th so I'm all excited about that!

I've been a yo-yo dieter for over 25 yrs and I want this year to be the end of all that! I want a lifestyle change, as so many call it, but I'm using portion control with lots of salad and freggies, I've lost 24 lbs in the last 12 weeks and I want that to continue! My health needs me to get and stay healthy! I know I'm going to enjoy this team and team-members.

Hi, I'm Eva and I'm new to the team. Love the idea of challenges in a supportive environment. Most recently I haven't lost any weight. Came from a hiking trip (which was challenging and thought it would cause weight loss), but no, of anything I gained. Guess food consumption is the most important measure.

Hi everyone, I just restarted myself as of today 2-18-13...I left sparks a few days ago but,
ended up coming back because I missed everyone on sparks here...I wasn't getting the support that I was needed so I left and went somewhere else, but as you can see I am back,

First Name: Bobbie
Birthday: 0ct. 28

When did you join Spark People? Feb. 18, 2013...but been here longer than that because I
am not a newbie.

Where are you from? Visalia, California
What are your aspirations/goals? I want to live a heathier life...I want to feel better about myself...and not be ashamed out in front of others @ the way I look.

How can we help inspire you to reach those goals? I am looking for support to help me stay focused on my goals.

Add anything else you would like to share: I like to read and I am hoping to get off of my meds one day...and one day I would like to fit into some smaller clothes...and one day I would love to fit into a bathtub instead of taking a shower ugh...support is what I need here.

I would love to say out loud one day when I get their, "THAT I DID IT" without a doubt!
