Hi there, have been on Spark people since last summer, lost 30+ lbs and am in a bit of a holding pattern weight wise as I tackle so many other things that came up when the weight came off. It's all headed in a more positive direction and so when I saw this team on Tina's page I came on over. My life is all about being a Turn Around Girl!

Pleased to meet you and ever so glad to be here!

Hi emoticon When I saw your team name I knew I had to join! I bought the paperback Spark last week and reading the Strong Start Guidelines I realized that I have been stuck in Diet Mentality and need to Turn Around!

I'm a country girl with a retired hubby and grown sons.

PS. Someone asked: My SparkPage background is St. Gallen, Switzerland just a few minutes from where my younger son/wife lived while he attended the university there to finish his MBA. I got to spend most of May 2009 there and loved it!

I don't know if this team was around when I was active in sparkpeople a few years ago. I love the concept b/c I really need to turn around, and develop lasting good changes to maintain a healthy weight. I lost over 50 lbs with sparkpeople before, and I really want to do so again - and keep it off this time. I really allowed my feelings about my job be "soothed" by overeating, and I gained back all of the weight. So...I'm starting again. I found a new job and a coworker who walks with me at lunch time. Now I have all of you to walk through the process with me. So...time to make those changes that result in better health. I have been back with sparkpeople for a little over 3 weeks, and have lost 6 lbs, so I'm on the right track. Here's a little information on me:
1. I'm from northern VA (just outside of DC)for the last 17 years, but have lived in northern CA, Los Angeles area, Florida, & Alabama.
2. My screen name is from my cat. I also have 2 male cats, Romulus and Remus.
3. Age 55
4. 3 kids (mostly grown - 1 out and working, 1 in grad school and 1 undergrad)
5. Married to my college sweetheart (33 years)
6. BD Oct. 1
7. I want to start with 50 lbs. More is probably better, but 50 seems "doable" this year.
9. I am walking daily, logging my nutrition, and being accountable on the boards.

Looking forward to getting to know folks here!

Hey!!!

My name is Sheyla, Im 21 and I want to join this group to look for some support in my weight lost project.

Im from Colombia but Im currently living in France. since i left my home I have gained almost 10 or 12 pounds. Im a emotional eater, that's for sure. I eat when i miss my family and friends, I eat when I feel nervous (Im currently looking for an internship and it's really stresfull) and I eat when I feel lonely ( I have friends here but i haven' had a boyfriend in a long time and i really miss being with someone)

So, I want to use some of you help and hopefully any of my opinions or comments will be helpfull for u too!

Hi, I'm laurie and I have an addiction to expecting bad things for myself. I want to change that, not just turn around but turn away from it, and accept--really accept the love the L-rd has for me. I am needing help with this!

Here are my answers to the intro questions:

1. I was born in California, near San Diego, moved about 20 times by the time I was 18, lived in Newport, RI for a bunch of years, but have been here in Virginia (specifically Virginia Beach and now Norfolk) for the past 21 years.

My screen name? Well, it just fits, I think. It's from my email address. I always wanted to have a place of my own. So far, I never have. But when a love from my past began looking for me, he found several emails that he said could have been mine. He said when he saw lauries-place, he knew it was me.

3. Age range? Hmmm...chronological, 50s. How do I feel? 40. My kids said I never aged past 43.

4. I have six kids--three boys, three girls. I have three grandchildren.

5. Ugh--legally married, but separated for 10 years. Looking to make that separation a divorce a.s.a.p. My kids and I will throw a party! sounds awful, but you'd have to know the situations...

6. My birthday is in November.

7. Let's see...78 pounds to lose sounds right.

8. What am I doing to help myself lose weight? I am joining this group! Walking about 20 miles a week and doing Pilates and strength exercises. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hello All,

A bit about me--I'll be 46 in a few weeks. I'm mom to 3 girls (26, 16, 10) and 1 son (14). I have 2 delicious grandkids--a gdaughter who is nearly 5 and a gson who is nearly 2. I live on a farm near a tiny town (750) in northwestern Saskatchewan, Canada. I'm very involved in Girl Guides of Canada. I love to be outdoors--camping, gardening, swimming, reading, and just hanging out with my kids. My dh is a long distance truck driver so not around too much. I am an Educational Assistant (teacher's aide) in an elementary school the next town over. My guilty pleasure is reality tv!!
I think I'm going to really enjoy getting to know you all!!
Laurie

Hi, Everyone! I am Martha -- an American (born in Georgia, grew up in North Carolina) living in Canada for the past 28+ years. I have been on the SP site for a while, but just took a 4-month break. Now I am ready to start again!

Details: 58 years old, married with two children (one in university, one just finished her master's degree), work part-time at a wonderful Home Depot store. My husband just retired for the second time, so now I have a "manservant" -- he's a great help to me.

Love reading mysteries, watching baseball, and I am an avid NASCAR fan (#88 is my favorite driver).

I love getting encouragement and support from team members, and I will surely do the same for anyone who needs encouragement.

Merry Christmas,

My name is Belle, I'm married with 3 adult children and 9 grandchildren. I live in Ohio. My goal is to lose weight and be comfortable in my own skin.

I was wandering around SP, when I came across this team. I liked what I read so I joined immediately. I look forward to getting to know my fellow team mates. TOGETHER we can all win in this journey towards reaching our GOALS!

Hello Girls ~ My name is Joy and I've been a (pretty non-involved) member of SP for quite a while. Looking around today - SOMETHING about this group just 'felt' right. At my age, I've learned to trust those instincts ;)
Looking forward to getting to know you all, share successes, challenges and laughs.
See ya on the chat thread,
Joy

Hey, Ladies
I know some of you already and look forward to getting to know others. I need a new beginning and a new goal. I lost 30 pounds but have added a few back. I need to get back on a consistent path QUICKLY! I hope to be an encourager as I also receive encouragement.
Love in Christ,
Lee

Hi all, I'm Jennifer, and I'm over 300 pounds.
I wasn't always fat--far from it. But here I am now, a complete mess.
I re-joined SP mid-May ('09), and I've dumped 20 pounds so far. Not exactly astonishing, but it's a start.
I don't typically over-eat (often anyway), but I am
"Miss Lazy-Bones", which is a terrible habit, I know.
And so I've had a bit of a day today, and I wandered across this team, and it just seemed so wonderful and positive, I had to join in!

1. Portland, OR
2. "Ugly Duckling" because I'm in progress and I hate the way I look. The "503" is my area code.
3. I'm 40
4. A son 23, a daughter 17, and two small grand-daughters (both my son's)
5. Long-term relationship w/ boyfriend. We count our anniversary Nov. 22.
6. 4-22-69
7. 187 more pounds to goal.
8. Not giving up!

Hi everyone! Your team was referred to me by my dear SP Friend - DANCETAXI22 [Danette]

1. I live near Lake Oroville in No. California.

2. My name is Rebecca and most call me Becky, but my dear beloved Dad used to call me "Rebecky" and the "44" part is the year I was born. Now that should be a huge hint on how old I am!!

3. This October 1st I will be 65 yrs old. Officially a Senior Citizen! Don't feel much like one in my mind I still feel like I'm 27!

4. My DH and I joined 2 families successfully together. I had 4 [1 girl+3 boys] and he had 4 [3 girls+1 boy] They have blessed us with 9 grandchildren [7 girls and 2 boys].

5. DH and I just celebrated out 25th wedding anniversary.

6. My birthday is October 1. DH and I share the same birthday although he is a couple years older than I.

7. I have 50 pounds to lose, although I would like to lose more. I will be happy to lose 50 and see what happens from there.

8. I was thin all my life and the pounds started creeping on 10-15 years ago. [See my SP Page for more of that story.]

I began losing weight using Atkins and was fairly successful, but felt I needed to concentrate on calories more for a "way of life change."

I joined SP in January 2009 and lost 20 pounds, only to gain some back and lose again. I've begun a roller coaster ride that has worried me and caused me to do some self-evaluation. I have acknowledged a truth about myself that I am an emotional eater. I feel just acknowledging that truth is a step to healing.

I only want to surround myself with positive people. I tend to shut down and walk away with negatives and complaining. I've belonged to several SP Teams only to drop out when there is a lot of complaining and no positive reinforcements going on. [I just wrote about that in this morning's blog.]

OK. So now you know a little about me. I'm looking forward to getting to know you.

Sparking Hugs @ cha!
Becky

1. where are you from? OREGON

2. how you came up with your screen name? I collect teddybears and am a girl

3. age 43

4. kids? grandkids? Neither

5. married/single? single never married

6. birthday : Feb 20

7. pounds to lose? 200

8. tell us something you are doing to help yourself lose weight? Well right now I can't answer that as I have gained all 80 pounds back I had previously lost so I am regrouping, refocusing, searching, discovering and learning why I am still choosing to stay fat. Seeking Gods help and healing right now so I will have the desire to get my health and life back.

Birthday: Oct. 31 (yes I was born on all hallo's eve)

I must've missed the birthday question when I was replying.

Hi, everyone!!!

1. I'm from New York
2. it's a dream of mine to be slender by 50
3. 49 and counting!!
4. one sweetie pie of a daughter, age 23
5. very married, almost 30 years
6. May 18
7. app. 10 more pounds to lose, but then I will re evaluate
8. I have stopped binge eating (after 35 years of the behavior) and that
has been what my latest losses are from. Otherwise, I can't say that I
am really on a "diet". I try to make good choices, my portions are sometimes
still too big, I like a treat each day, but I am becoming more balanced in my
eating.

1. I live in central Maine
2. My screen name I've had for years and I think is descriptive of me.
3. I'm 25. I have no problem admitting my age, but ask me again in 10 years and I'll be singing a different tune.
4. no children and none planned for any time soon
5. I am a newlywed. I'll celebrate my first anniversary in mid August.
6. I have weight to lose, but not sure how much. I go by how my clothes fit not the scale.
7. I am addicted to green tea. I drink at least 2 cups a day. I started drinking it for the caffine, but the antioxidents and all that other stuff make it even easier to drink. I try to drink it in place of sugary sodas.

It takes five seconds to smile and be nice. It takes the same time to be mean, so SMILE and be nice.
