Hi Everyone:

My name is Regina

Live in: Hensley WV

I really don't know when I joined spark, but it was several years ago. I didn't use the web site until here lately. I am trying to get better at sparking, I have meet so many good friends here, But need to spark more. I find it helps me with staying on track with eating and other goals.

goal weight/weigh loss: 150 lbs/202 lbs loss

2 random, fun facts about me: well, I don't have kids, so I have fur kids, as I call them. I have 2 cats and 2 dog. They are the highlight of my day.

I love to lift weights and go out for walks.

Anything else you like to share: Like most of everyone else, I have been married for 16 years. My husband tho, is not as supportive to me in the weight loss as I would want him to be. And My family is not as supportive either.

I can be hard on myself sometimes, and I need a kick in the behind by my friends at spark to keep me going. I know this is where I belong. In spark, with spark people. I am trying to be more active in the group and in spark in general. love you guys Hope to get to know everyone alot better.

Name: Debbie

Location: Georgia

Date Joined SP: 2006

Goal Weight/Goal Weight Loss: Goal weight loss 120 pounds

Overall Goal: To finally find the mix/balance to lose the weight and maintain a healthy body weight.

2 Random, Fun Facts about You:
I LOVE being a grandma and I'm a freelance writer.

Anything else you want to share:

I lost 60-70 pounds and then let 'life' run over me for almost a year and regained most of that...I'm back at it again and determined to make this the year to succeed!

CRAZY homelife...hubby facing health issues and income taking a nosedive as a result. As a freelance writer I have times when I have no assignments or more than enough to make my computertime 'all work and no play' so if I go 'missing' for a few days or week at a time, I'm still around just scanning posts and hitting basics!

DETERMINATION & ACCOUNTABILITY sounds like just what I need though so lets Spring into March and get-r-done!
Hugs,
Debbie

p.s. THANKS Patricia for the invite!


Be Blessed! -- Debbie

Goal Weight/Goal Weight Loss: 150 lbs is my goal - I'm 181 now; I lost 50 lbs before I found SP

Overall Goal: To be healthier and to never go back to my wheelchair or walker (and hopefully to never need my cane again)

2 Random, Fun Facts about You: 1) I know, without a doubt, that I am amazing and darn cute no matter what I look like to other people! In fact, my daughter says that I have enough self-esteem for 3 or 4 women. 2) I was an extremely strict mother, but once my daughter left for college and I no longer had to tell her what to do we become best friends and we have several hour long (oe longer) phone calls every week.

Anything else you want to share: I'm home alone a great deal because my hubby is starting a business & we just relocated & I am disabled - so feel free to "sparkmail" me if you need some company or support. If I'm not on here I'm probably out in the yard or on Facebook (jen.queenofchaos@gmail.com) just tell me you are from here & I'll add you!

Name: Fauve ( I am not ready to disclose my real name, sorry)
Location: East Florida
Joined Spark: Twice, the last time during 2009.
Weight Loss goal: 50 pounds less! -- in the long run. In the medium run goal: 20 pounds less.
Random 2 about me: 1) I love to play with words, no matter in which language I am speaking or writing, no matter how well I know that language, I just feel the need to play with words. 2) I have no sense of physical orientation ( is this a true term? in English): North? South? East? West? What is that? I easily get lost if I am not familiar with an area, perhaps because I am always in my mind -- and do not pay too much attention to the external. Thank God for navigators!

More sharing: I am an introvert, fond of studying. In my dreams, however, I ride wild horses.

Hugs to you all!

Goal Weight/Goal Weight Loss:125

Overall Goal:Be healthy and avoid cancer and osteoporosis that runs heavy in my family

2 Random, Fun Facts about You: I have an almost idiot savant memory of things I watch on tv. Last night I walked through the living room to carry folded laundry into my bedroom and as I walked back out I told my boyfriend I recall that episode of forensic files, the mine guard was found on a mountaintop, his coworker with the camaro killed him. I had seen it almost a year ago, caught maybe 3 seconds of it walking by and had instant recall. Now if I could remember important facts the same way I'd clean up on Jeopardy!
I took a class for a gun permit last week, not sure if I'd ever carry one but the first time my hunny and I went target shooting I got almost all bullseyes while not even wearing my glasses. Turns out I'm a natural at something I never thought I'd try.

Anything else you want to share: I've been in the dumps for two months on my Spark program, ever since I had the flu. I'm recovered physically but am struggling to get back into routines.

I posted a 40 things about me blog a while back just chocked with random facts. The two above didn't make that list.
