Hello,
I just joined SP, was poking around and landed here and I like what I see. I live in Southern California, I love the sunshine and I'm a big happy blonde girl, thus the user name, SunnyGoldieGirl. My real name is Diane. Here I hope to lose 120 pounds, then I will really fit the description "California Girl," but seriously, I'm really focused on better health. I know better, as I have been here before. I was on SP five years ago in 2008 and lost about 80 lbs, but didn't stay a member and look, here I am again. *Sigh* I'm sure we all have those stories. Now, I just had a landmark birthday, and I'm really committed to sticking with it for life! I look forward to chatting with friends and supporting each other along our way! emoticon

I was a member a couple times under different user names but since menopause, my thinking gets all screwed up and I let emotions get the best of me. So I end up dropping teams or leaving sparkpeople completely. But I'm back to stay this time, no matter what til I lose this weight.
I've set my goal to lose 100 lbs over the next 22 months. That might be wishful thinking but I feel if I can get my butt in gear, I CAN DO IT!
All encouragement and added support is appreciated.

Wow, this is great. I am so glad there is a group for others like me. I have SHeehan's syndrome with panhypopituitary which means none of my endocrine systems work. I am steroid dependent and on a multitude of hormones. I have died once already and came back from going into adrenal shock and diabetes insipidus. I just haven't had much fun. The real drawback with all of this is the weight gain. It took the docs 30 years to listen to me and test me. By then, it was too late. Now, we just chase our tails trying to keep me balanced and trying to keep from getting sick since I no longer have normal immunity.

I would like to lose at least 125 pounds. I will settle for getting below 200 right now. I know because of the steroids it is going to be a huge fight, but I am willing to fight it.

My name is Vicki and I'll soon be 56. I had been going the no scale route but that quickly came to an end yesterday.
Staying off the scale only lasted a few days, but in that few days my measurements INCREASED 8 INCHES. Sooooooo I told hubby last night that I was back on my old low carb plan I did in the 80's ( I lost 105 lbs in 13 months and kept it off for over 20 years), and he could eat what he wanted but I was going back to what I KNOW will work for me. So he knows better than to push foods on me that won't be on my plan.
I am sick to death over my newest numbers but that will change as quickly as I can make it happen. I'm going to give myself 2 years to lose 100 lbs. It may take longer but that's the goal for now and I won't let myself get off plan again.

I am new to Sparkpeople and Live in CT. I am a Mother to 7 (from a combined family). My husband is newly retired from the Navy. I work full time. I love to sing, pay drums, I'm in a band, I sew, read, love movies, love the ocean, and photography. I am a volunteer with Relay For Life here. My children range in age from 4 years old to 19 years old.2 years ago I was 1 week from myu surgery date and then my insurance denied my surgery because my work signed a specific form to not cover that type of surgery. I did appeal with letters from my doctor stating medically necessary, but it was still denied. That didn't turn out good for me. Currently, I have completed all my required classes and doctors appointments for Bariatric surgery as my husbands insurance will pay for it and I am awaiting a surgery date. I'm both excited, worried it won't happen again, and scared of the big life change. I can't wait to someday be the thinner me that I have never been my entire life!

Hi everyone. I am Irma and I'm starting this process all over again. I have left my own place and my closest friends and moved back home. The past year has been stressful since i've been out of syn with everything. With nothing much going on, I didn't do anything but pack on pounds. I've ballooned to a whopping 348LBS. This is the heaviest i've ever been and now that i'm refocused on me, it's time for me to let the LBS go.

Hi everyone, I'm Bobbi and I have lots of weight to lose. I'm currently 273 pounds and, according to Wii Fit Plus, my ideal weight should be 145. So, I have some work to do.

I live in Maryland with my husband, 2 boys, and our pets. My family lives on the same street, which can get a little crazy at times. I've tried the dieting thing a million times but I never follow through. My husband is amazingly supportive but I tend to argue with him when he's encouraging me to stick with my program.

I'm in desperate need of someone who's in a similar situation who can hold me accountable. I like to think I'm pretty easygoing but it depends on who you ask...lol. I love meeting new people because I learn so much, and learning is something I never get tired of doing.

~Bobbi

Hi everyone, I am April and I live in Michigan, and yes I have over 100+ pounds to lose but you know what it takes a pound at a time and I know that I am not alone, there is so much support here and motivation that every time I think about how far I have to go I read Spark pages and know I can do it. I am currently a full time student. I need to lose 150 pounds to have a healthy BMI so that is what I want ,please cheer me on and I will do the same for you

Hey :)

I am new to sp, still not really sure what I'm doing. I signed up just over a week ago and then went on vacation and didn't post the first week. My first couple days of tracking nutrition and such were failures, but I went grocery shopping last night and today I managed to hit my caloric range. I didn't hit the fitness range, but it appears to be a learning process. As I learn to use the web site better, maybe I will learn new skills.

Hi all! Wow, just like you ladies I have been on and off SP few times, this time I'm determined to break this cycle and stay here till the end! You can visit my blog and learn more about me there. I am definitely looking for some buddys to motivate each other and to keep accountable. To just have someone to talk to and know that they know how you feel, understand and won't judge. I guess I am looking for friends who is ready to go all the way, no excuses!

Hi Carispark and Tammy -

It seems we've all given Spark a go on and off and have decided (logically I think) that this site is a very helpful tool and a great place to 'meet' like-minded people all trying to get healthy and fit

Tammy, it sounds like you're well on you way - thats emoticon . I too am trying to get myself up off the chair more often at work (very sedentary job). Although I enjoy Spark and Facebook, I find them both very addicting and sometimes can easily pass a few hours on the computer this way, but that only adds to my sedentary lifestyle. I really think I need a lesson in time management:)

I think we should move our chat to the Daily Chit-Chat thread on this group - and hopefully that will encourage a lot of other members of this group to post so we can all get to know each other a bit better and offer/get the support we all need - what do you think??

Ttys,
gina

Hi Everyone, My name is Tammy-I am here to get this weight off! I have been on Sp for a couple of years but fell back into my old habits and threw SP to the curb. Oct 2008 I hit my highest weight of 345. I lost about 45 lbs of that and then went back to cheese burgers and old habits and I gained back up to 327. I started SP again Jan 3, 2011 and I have been doing it faithfully. I am glad to say I am down to 312 now and I am getting off the couch more and trying to walk at least a mile with Leslie Sansone.
I am 45 and a happily married Mom of 2. I just got my hubby on here and my 13 yr old is on spark teens. I like to sing, play on facebook, shop, and hang with my family. I am a computer teacher to Kindergarten and 1st graders. I teach 1st grade Sunday School with my husband at our church.

I am shooting for a goal of Feb 28th to get down to 299...I can't wait!
I look forward to chatting with you all as we help each other get healthy!!

Have a great day!

I love the fact that you're breaking up your weigh loss goals into smaller ones. That's what I'm doing as well, except mine is in 20s.
I've also been back and forth on sparkpeople for about 3 years. This is my second profile as I deleted the first one for a fresh start. So far it's still been a struggle, but I'm sticking with it.
Post away as much as you'd like! Hopefully this team will help you out on your weigh loss.

Hi everyone -

Glad I found this group:) I am aiming to lose about 120lbs, which at 5'2" will still have me in the 'overweight' category, but I feel 143 lbs is doable and maintanable, so that's what I'm shooting for in the long run.

I'm breaking up my weight loss into short term goals, just trying to break into the lower "10s" that is, my first goal will be to leave the 260s and enter the 250s, then leave the 250s and enter the 240s etc.

I've been back and forth on Spark People for a couple of years now, and don't seem to stick with it long enough to reap the benefits, sometimes I think its because the site is so addictive!! In order to limit my time on-line (so I can be more active, hopefully) I plan on mostly posting with this group, so I hope no-one gets sick of me:)!!

Stop by my SparkPage anytime if you'd like to get to know me better - add me as a friend too! We need all the friends we can get in this journey of ours!!

Good luck to all of you on this team!! emoticon
