Hey there everyone! I joined Spark People back in October, but am new to this team. I joined at 202 lbs and basically wanted to make it through the holidays without gaining, then start on a major losing streak after that. Well, I made it through the holidays with about a 3 lb loss, so I was pretty happy with that. However, we're now almost halfway through February and I'm still only down 3 lbs. Honestly, I haven't been trying that hard, and most days not at all. I want to get back into the site (and this team) to get energized. I look forward to getting to know you all!

Hi, I just added this team to my page so I'm new to the group. I LOVE SP so far and have lost 13 pounds since joining and 71 lbs total. I still have 44 to go before getting to my goal weight. Good luck to everyone.

Hello! I'm Heather and almost a month late in introducing myself but better late than never right?
In 2006 I had a personal trainer and she took me from 158 to 138. Which I kept off until I got pregnant in September of 08. I weighed in at 180 when I delivered my son in May of this year and now into November I'm down to 154 (maybe a bit less it's been a few weeks since I weighed last) we have since moved away from my trainer and I'm going it alone which is why I'm using Spark People to keep myself motivated and accountable. I've found that staying home with my son has it's pros and cons. I can pretty much go to the gym whenever I want but I have access to my fridge all day long :( My will power is growing since being on here. Thanks for your support!

Sorry I'm so late in the game with introducing myself, but I was honestly having too much fun checking out all the stuff that's available here!

I'm Michelle, I'm 25 (soon to be 26) and live in NJ. I was always used to being bigger than my friends because they were what we would call "bird-boned" (small dainty frames), while I was born with the bones of a quarterback. I was, however, always thin and in high school, crazy fit because I was in sports and JROTC. In college, I gained 80 lbs due to bad eating choices, a godawful schedule and major surgery. I never bounced back.

I'm determined too now. I'm getting married in October 2010 but mostly I just want to look and feel better everyday.

I am loving this journey. I really am.

Hi everyone! My name is Danielle, I'm 39 years old and have 2 kiddos (4.5yo adn 2.5yo), happily married and trying to lose 20 lbs. I've fallen into bad habits since my last was born. I love food and have an insatiable sweet tooth. I've been on SP now for a week and have been very proud of myself so far! I've been getting in my workouts and doing well on logging my cals.

However, my track record is to start out strong and fall off the wagon pretty quickly. I really need some accountability!

Welcome to Sparks Wendy !

Yes, our bad habits are what get us into trouble, so let's work on them, one at a time, baby stepping is the way to to do it. Lets turn bad habits into good habits, and it'll be for a lifetime ! But always remember, we aren't perfect, so if you slip up, forgive yourself and keep moving forward !

Hello :) I'm Wendy and I'm 25. I have 3 kids (8yrs 4yrs and 3yrs) and I have been married since 2004. We moved to Illinois 2 years ago and I still don't know anyone! I have been on weight watchers about 5 times and although I know the program works, I couldn't get myself to commit to it. If I can do this on my own terms and enjoy myself I know I will be successful. I just have to keep telling myself not to give up and try to curb all my bad habits. I joined last week. :) I look forward to getting to know you all!

Hi I just turned 47 and would love to lose at least 20# by summer, it just never seems to budge. I use my nutrition tracker and exercise but perhaps need to bump it up a notch or two. I have two daughters one is a sophmore in college and the other is a junior in high school.

Hi i'm Jessica, i'm 22. i've been on Spark before and lost almost 55lbs. I started slacking and gained about 15 of it back so I decided to give spark people another try! I'm motivated and excited to be a part of this team. There's lots of new ppl which it great!!

I'm hoping to lose the 15lbs I put back on plus another 15 by my birthday in June. I've got a lot of big changes coming up, i'm moving to Seattle in November to care for my niece who is due in December, and my Boyfriend Has leave days from Iraq in Feb. I'm hoping that getting back on track will keep me energized enough to handle it all and look great at the same time. :~)

I'm glad to be a part of this team and wish u all nothing but the best of luck on your weight loss journey!

Hello, I am loving this site. Being able to talk with others going through the same thing and have the support I don't always have around is awesome. I started last Friday morning and am anxious to get back on the scale tomorrow to see how I've done poundage-wise... engery-wise I can already tell a big difference.

Asrmom, please hang in there, have you taken the time to work with the nutrition and exercise tracker?

Have you found yourself some members for support? HOw about challenges, have you joined any new teams and challenges?

Let us know how we can help you, we want you healthier for yourself and your family. Losing weight is not easy, however it is doable, we encourage everyone to change their old habits into new ones, ones that you can work on for life.

I'm sure the stress of children can make you want to eat, but we want you to learn a new way to deal with your stress.

ASRMOM - Don't give up ... you are not alone! And having the occasional cookie is ok. I know that for me if I don't treat myself once in a while I crave things more. Just take it one day at a time. Drink your water, track what you're eating and try to get in even small workouts daily - it all adds up! I hope your kids are well soon.

Hang in there - you CAN do it!!!!

Well I've been here over a week but this is only the second time I've logged on. I now weigh 180.5. Not really sure if I'm already giving up, or what, but feeling blah and wishing I could have a cookie already this morning. I have sick kids at home right now and I usually stress eat. I guess I'm on here with only a cup of coffee at my desk, so maybe.....

hi everyone.
This is not my first time on sparkpeople as I joined a few years and and lost 10kg. Slowly the weight has crept back on again with another 5kg added. I have tried to go to my old page and start again but not had much success so I decided a complete new start was needed so here I am.
my goal is 69kg and with perseverance I hope to make it this time.
look forward to get to know at least some of you who have joined this week.

Hi my name is Linda I am a fifty something with about the same amount to lose.
I am married. I live in Texas and have 2 fur babies.
I have the added challenge of losing weight with a chronic illness with meds that stimulate appetites and weight gains.
I recently had cataract surgery on my eyes and am excited to be able to read food labels and see what i'm ordering in restaurants.
hi all.

Hi Susie! My name is Lee and I'm 49 as of last month. Same goal of being more active and vibrant at 50. I just joined now - 11:00 p.m. my time. I'm excited to find this site and also hope to find others working toward the same goals - and to bring my husband along with me as I make these changes.

Hi to Everybody Else, too! emoticon

10 lbs or 100 lbs, it's still something that you want to do to become healthier.

This is a wonderful site to help you.

Good Afternoon everyone! Well, I am new to SP and I don't have much to lose, but I know I need to do it. I need to drop about 10 pounds - I am very petite and am at my happiest weight when I weigh about 100 pounds. When you are not even 5 feet tall, a pound is a very different thing on you than it is on a taller person. This past year has been a horrible one, and I let my health slide over the last four months something awful... Here's to hoping I can reclaim it and get my butt back in gear! :)

My name is Katie and I'm 21 years old. I've been overweight since childhood. I weigh 225 pounds and my goal is to lose 70 pounds before I get married next year. I want us to both be healthy and active so we can start a family when we're ready.

Thanks for having a forum like this where feelings and needs can be shared. My name is Denise and I have 126# t lose to suggested goal weight. I thought that sounded like an unrealistic and unatainable numebr until I did the estimated time of weight lose calculation; and found it could be obtained in just less than a year. It certainly took me longer than a year to gain it all in the first place. I have no life event that is requiring immediate weight loss other than overall health. I know that I have the power to do anything I set my mind to and I will obtain this goal. emoticon

Hello.....I just returned to Sparkpeople, I first signed up in 2006, but left when my mom passed away and went through some very trying times in my life. Thankfully, one thing that I've slowly kept up with is my weightloss and I just recently made is into Onederland:) I look forward meeting lots of new friends here:)

Hi all! I just found out about SP today from a friend and I can't believe I have never heard of it before! I live in Florida and have two boys, ages 1 and 3. They are the reason I am here since I have been unable to lose the weight I gained during my pregnancies. My youngest will be two at the end of this year and it's getting embarrassing to still have this "baby" weight! I work full-time which means there is little time (or energy) left over for exercise. emoticon

Hello All,
I go by Lizzy I am 31 years old and I am ready to make a change in my lifestyle and start a healthier life. I have been out of work for months now due to a back injury which I am still dealing with. The largest reason for this according to my PCP is the weight that I'm carrying around with me which is causing all of the pain so I am on a mission to help correct this. I am new to all of this and could you a buddy or two to help me get started in the right direction. Hopefully with the help of others in this program I will become successful.

Hello All,

Foremost, thanks to sparkpeople for creating such a wonderful website. The website all of its members are a great motivation. I do believe that with SP I will be able to achieve what I want i.e. to loose the large spare tire I have been carrying on me for quite some time. With the support of all the team members I will loose it.

Hi everyone,
I would like to introduce myself. My name is Stacey and I am the mother of three. I am a fluffy 211 lbs and 5'8. I would love to lose about 51 pounds and I am determined to do it! I am nearing 40 yrs old and I REFUSE to go into my 40s with the extra "fluff." I am recently divorced and just excited about starting over with everything, including my weight and health.

Hi. I joined spark in April, but have been very inactive. I wanted a fresh start with all the newbies. So here I am. Good luck to all and I am hoping I can stick with it for the end goal!!

Hi there :)

My name's Angel. I'm a 20 year old female from Malta and I'm obese. I've been struggling with my weight since forever. I have tried MILLIONS of diets and did not succeed. I hope this time it's for real.

On a brighter note: I am currently working as a PA (which I dislike) and studying Child Psychology and Piano. My dream is to become a piano teacher.

Looking forward to the team challenges.

..and very nice to meet you all :)
