WHY ARE YOU HERE: I am here so that I can have a sense of community. I am here to be able to track my food because I find that if I have to put it down, I won't eat it. It is a deterrent for me. To share and glean knowledge. Oh yes and to get rid of this second person that is now part of me... since I am 140 pounds overweight, that is another person emoticon I am getting my life back together.

Keep the dream alive, don't let it die

If something deep inside you, keeps inspiring you to try,

Don't stop

And never give up,

Don't ever give up,

ARE YOU A NEWBIE or an OLDIE BUT GOODIE: Newbie
FIRST NAME: Linda
STATE: Allentown PA
BIRTHDAY: June 16
MARRIED: Married 24 years
KIDS: DD 17, DS 14
PETS: none
WORK: homemaker, musician
HOBBIES: Music, Camping, USA Travel
WHY ARE YOU HERE: To lose weight, feel better, be healthier, and look better in or out of my clothes!

I chose my name because it's my name and the year I was born. I wasn't very creative that day.

I have only one spark friend and I need encouragement to stick with this. I got on the scale on Mother's Day and was horrified. Joined SparkPeople the next day. Browsed the site a few days, then started using the nutrition tracker. Am changing my eating habits and staying within my ranges better, but I need to exercise more. Too many excuses to be lazy!

Hi everyone!

My name is Ali and I currently live in Arizona while my boyfriend finishes up college, then we are moving back to California (where I am originally from)

I recently graduated from college and am working full-time for an advocacy organization. I have reached a time in my life where 220 pounds is the most that I ever want to weigh and I need to lose weight to become more healthy. I don't have any kids but am planning on it and want to be around for my future husband and children.

I look forward to getting to know people and finding the support that I have been lacking in my life and giving encouragement where I can to others :)

KIDS: Not yet.
PETS: 2 cats (one fat and lazy, and one skinny and annoying)

I AM A Newbie.
FIRST NAME: Megan
STATE: Currently Kentucky, but soon to be Missouri
BIRTHDAY: March 28
MARRIED: 9 yrs. in Sept
KIDS: 2 boys(8 & 6)and 2 girls(4 & 1)
PETS: none at the moment
WORK: SAHM and Army Wife
HOBBIES: Interior design, DIY projects, paper crafts, scrapbooking, reading

WHY ARE YOU HERE: Since I have had self image issues for years. I didn't work to lose the weight after my first two kids, then lost 40 pounds after my third. Kept it off until I got pregnant with fouth child and now I am trying to get back to that and live healthier life. I want to run and play with the kids! I also have my 10 yrs. class reunion this summer and would like to be in better shape than I am now.

One day my husband called me Moby...he combined my name, Megan and Baby on accident and it has just stuck!

I AM A Newbie.
FIRST NAME: Kristy
STATE: North Carolina
BIRTHDAY: March 6
MARRIED: for almost four years to my husband Gabe
KIDS: not yet, and not before I'm at a healthy weight
PETS: Buddy the Wonder Greyhound. :)
WORK: I'm a public school music teacher
HOBBIES: knitting, reading, watching tv. I need some more active activities! In theory, I like to dance and hike, but I haven't been doing much of that lately.

WHY ARE YOU HERE: I have been overweight most of my adult life, and I want to FINALLY feel like a healthy, active person on my 30th birthday in March. I also have a twin sister who has always been much smaller than me, and I'm tired of comparing myself to her. I want to compare myself to myself!

Tell us why or how you came to choose your USERNAME?

I'm a huge Red Sox fan, and "Why not us?" was the team's mantra in 2004 when they finally won the World Series. Nobody thought they could do it, not even me. But they did, because they believed in themselves and they kept asking, "Why NOT us??" So I'm trying to counter every negative or scared thought I have about losing weight by asking, "Why NOT me?".
