Nice to meet you Ali! I know all about high blood pressure and diabetes. I'm still taking high blood pressure and heart meds but with good diet, exercise(walking) and weight loss I no longer take any medication for high blood sugar. If I can help in any way please holler my way. I'd love to add you as a friend when you get your spark page turned on.

Also, Ali, I've just looked to friend you and I see you either don't have a Spark page yet or it isn't turned online. It's a great idea to have an accessible sparkpage as people active in the community--posting stutuses, participating in friend feeds, etc, are a much higher percentage more likely to have success with their program than those who aren't.

emoticon Ali! My name is Emmy. You are in an excellent place here at SP and on this team to help make a positive change in your life. emoticon . SP offers many articles on Diabetes and High Blood Pressure in their Health Condition Centre and sends out emails on them as well if you checked off that you have these conditions and would like to receive emails from SP (you get 1 point for reading if you click the "I read this article/redeem 1 sparkpoint for reading this article" button.

The team huddle is found streaming to the right of the screen with the blogs. You will see at the bottom of the stream it says, "View Huddle Wall" That will take you to a page where you can either click a circle for a prewritten motivational phrase, such as "Let's go team" or "Spread the Spartk", or you can check the top box and write your own motivational message (people say stuff like, "Happy Humpday" or Have a Wonderful Weekend", etc). Above that box where you can choose to write your own phrase there is a like you can click on, "What is a Huddle?" Click there and you will get a spark article explaining it all in perfect detail. I believe you can get points for reading this article. Always be sure to check for those points boxes whenever you read something or complete a task on Spark. You've worked hard and rewarding yourself is important!

I hope this has been some help!

Have a great night!

Hi! My name is Ali and I am ready for a transformation. I've been morbidly obese for just about my entire adult life. I recently found out I have high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes (no surprise really.) I've been here at sparkpeople for 2 weeks and I really enjoy this website. I would love to have some spark buddies and make friends.

I do have one question; what is huddling?

I'm not training for a competition. I'm not trying to set a new record. I'm not trying to impress you. I'm saving my life!

Brand new to the team as of this very second!

Hi everyone!

Wanted to let you all know I shared a picture of Jim and I on my blog

just putting a face to name

Just finished lifting weights from my program designed from The New Rules of Lifting for women, now I'm figuring out my next workout which involves 2 other strength books; one is Stronger Curves for Women and the other is Strength Training for Women. I've put together what I'm interested in and I'm seeing results!

Have a great day!

emoticon Joy-Sass! So glad you came and introduced yourself! I have an iPad mini too as my hard drive went--I had been sparking on my iPhone and this is sooooo much easier. I've forgotten what sparking with a computer is like. The only thing I mis is the mouse as times for dragging things and creating avatars, and I cant find a way to make working links, though perhaps you can.

The goal board is great indeed! I revise my regularly and have had to cut it down as I was finding mine took so long to go through, lol. It sounds like you have great goals!

All best wishes,
Emmy :))

Hi, I'm new (again) and am happy to have joined this team. I have an IPad mini, now--so it's easier & more comfortable to spend time online. (My teenagers spend a lot of time on the PC playing "Robloxi")
I've yo-yo'd a lot the past several years & really hope to make some strides in my weight loss efforts. I like the goal board they have now! Decided I would aim for a walk/run fundraising event to raise $ for the fight against lung cancer in August. Someone on this site suggested looking at your goal board (or whatever it's called) daily, at the times when you feel least motivated. emoticon If anyone wants friends, you can friend me. I wouldn't mind a friend or two emoticon emoticon

So I've been apart of this group for about a week and still haven't introduced myself! How rude of me! My name is Erin, I live in Winnipeg,Manitoba Canada. My main goal is to lose 45lbs.

I have been on and off the weight loss wagon many times now each time I find a lack of motivation and quit. But this time will be different! I am setting mini challenges for myself. I am apart of this wonderful group of ladies here in Winnipeg that works as my support system. Next Month(January) We are doing an abs challenge.

So far I have only lost 5lbs... I got a long way to go but I am optimistic!

Hello! I'm June from out here on the West Coast. My goal is to lose the weight I have put on since I got married 3 years ago (8 lbs a year or so). I have not weighed this much (145 lbs) since I was pregnant with my oldest son 20 years ago! Ugh! I must do something or purchase a new wardrobe! Luckily (or not) I wear scrubs to work...which are forgiving...in other words, they don't give you cues as to how fat your behind is getting emoticon !

Thank you! I played with caterpillar's when I was a little girl. My mom use to have a fit she caught me playing with them. I love and when they turn to beautiful butteries. I didn't even think about the name and how it related to caterpillar's. I also love birds too.

emoticon emoticon emoticon Michelle! It's interesting...you've chosen a name that reflects transformation, and you're drawn to the butterfly, which so many consider to be the animal kingdom's representative of what transformation means, as it makes its metamorphosis from caterpillar to glorious butterfly. Anyway, it's lovely to have you here! emoticon

Hi my name is Michelle but I like Mel as well. I had to join this team when I saw three things, one--when I first joined Sparkpeople, my name was transformation724. But I never really transformed. So now it's just transform724. Two--I really like all the positivity in the postings so I said I really like this team! Thirdly, I LOVE Walk Away the Pounds and this is my core program. So I think I am in the right place because I said this year I would transform once and for all and then I found this team!!! I think it will become a realty in 2013!!! emoticon

I have to add one more thing. I love butterflies too!

Welcome, Jetta! This is about the hardest thing I know I've ever done in life, finally getting that weight off. I think I managed it on the 136,398,393rd try or so emoticon Just in terms of number of times I've joined and rejoined Spark, I lost count a long, long time ago.

Nice to meet you, and what a fantastic, St. Patty's Day-themed SparkPage you've got there! Love it...and that adorable picture of you! All the best.

Hello I am new to the team. I started on the first of Janurary and still going. Not an easy road but I know that the journey would not be easy. I have been there before. Years ago I lost weight and gained it all back. I am hoping to keep it off this time after I get it off.

Bonnie, I see lots of willingness, single-mindedness, and determination here and on your SparkPage. There's no deadline for the finish line, though...it's one moment, one decision, and one day at a time, and before you know it, you've racked up a whole BUNCH of all of the above, and you've got some great numbers and better health to show for it.

Centuries ago - (well, I exaggerate; it's more like decades!) - I started making one of countless weight-loss efforts, though three years ago, it was health concerns that provided the final, successful impetus toward helping me get to my goal weight. I remember the day I started very well, though if you'd asked me what I thought my chances of success were, I'd have guessed there were down there around the "zero" mark.

The single, most important step I took was to track every bite - every ounce - of what I ate, including vegetables. I was somewhat more limited than many as my fluid intake is limited due to kidney abnormalities. So I was thirsty *and* hungry...but between sugar-free mints, spacing out my water, and other measures, I've pulled through and have maintained for a couple years now.

It can be done, and you DEFINITELY can be the next person to do it! Welcome! emoticon

Hello, My name is Bonnie and I am 47 and just can't seem to get this weight loss thing started. I signed up 190 days ago and just keep doing the same bad things. I did start swimming over 1/4 mi on my lunch hours, but I defeat myself by eating horrible. I came back to Spark to get the "bad" cloud off my brain. I know there are several people who have started and have had wonderful results. I would love some pointers to help me get started again and some postitive points to help me when my will power is at it's worst. Thanks in advance for any tips or encouragement! I so badly want this transformation, but just can't see the forest through the trees right now. :(


You'll only regret it if you don't do it!

Hello! My name is Leslie, I'm 47, married and mom to two spectacular kids (15 and 19) This is my very first post on any SP board. I apparently joined last May, but I never used SP until Jan. I was recently diagnosed with high blood pressure, diabetes and congestive heart failure. Talk about a wake up call!! For the last two months I've been eating better, walking everyday and adapting to the changes with meds and checking blood sugar, BP etc. It's been a lot to take on all at once, but I know it's what I have to do, so I'm doing it. I began at 287 and as of this morning I'm at 260 (259.8) so I've lost 27 pounds. I also got good news from my heart doctor last week hearing my heart function is improving. I know I have a long way to go yet. I'm not sure what my final goal weight is. For now I'm hoping to be down 100 pounds by Christmas. The more important goals for me are continuing to strengthen my heart and stabilize my blood pressure and diabetes. I look forward to being part of this great support system.

Hey Team! My name is Lori and I'm 30 years old. My husband and I run a boarding stable in Maine. At the end of last year, I tore my ACL in a riding accident and was laid up for a few months. I had to have two surgeries, because the first one was not successful. I've gained weight from being sedentary and not eating healthy. It's been a tough few months, because I normally have an active lifestyle with my horses. I go to PT once a week and do my exercises at home, but I decided I needed to be a little more aggressive. With the help of a commercial diet/exercise program recommended to me by a friend, I've changed my eating habits drastically and am working out everyday. I track everything here on Spark. I've also been given the green light by my surgeon to start riding my horses again this week! I'm really feeling motivated to make big changes and take control of my life! In 3 weeks, I've already lost 7 pounds! I'm looking to make some friends and get support and give LOTS of support in return!!

Ahh, Czer...you've been through too much for a young woman your age. CONGRATULATIONS!! on logging your calories for two days in a row! I know it seems like a cumbersome habit to develop - it felt very awkward and even a little irritating to me in the beginning - but it's one that will pay off handsomely. Don't even BEGIN to worry about getting everything right - and perfect - in the beginning, because if you can master tracking what you eat each day, YOU ARE HOME FREE. Group participation, etc., is icing on the cake (bad choice of words?) compared to that.

Good to have you here!

Thanks =) I tell ya, I don't feel very young. When you couple the weight with everything that's happened I feel closer to 50. Scares me about how i'll actually feel WHEN i'm 50. Hopefully that's where losing the weight will help, as it's been a while since I felt my age. Hopefully I can keep up with things on here. I'm kind of terrible with checking in on groups and things so we'll see how it goes. Already i've logged my calories two days in a row though so already things are looking pretty good. Even if I did eat probably not the best way today.

It's good to be here though.

emoticon emoticon emoticon mm Leslie! Wow...for such a young woman, it really does sound like - as you so creatively put it - your life's been thrown into a dryer on Extreme Tumble. Congratulations in advance on your upcoming graduation from Vet Tech school, by the way! I think more often than not, most of us have started and stopped the weight-loss/fitness journey *much* more than once. If I had to tell you how many diets I started before I finally got to where I wanted to go, we'd be here all day emoticon

You'll thank yourself for being so wise and getting this done while you're still young! I was nearly 60, and I've got some pretty painful arthritis in my right hip as an indirect result of all the excess weight I carried. You can definitely do this! I think it's a matter of tailoring a program to meet your needs and keep - and get - YOU healthy.

You deserve no less.

It's good to "meet" you here!

So, it says to introduce yourself so here i am! My name is Leslie. I've been overweight/morbidly obese for going on ten years now. In that time i've also gone through marriage, miscarriage, divorce, diagnosis of several mental health problems, dropping out of college, going back to college years later, and having my life generally thrown into a dryer on Extreme Tumble cycle. Now, i'm 28, I am schedule to graduate from Vet Tech school in May and I feel that it's time I try and get this other part of my life under control. I'm currently Female/255lbs/5'6". I've started and stopped this journey several times, but I desperately want to be back to a healthy weight before I'm thirty. I'm running out of time for that wish to come to fruition. So here I am =)

Spring in is the air, at least it "looks" like spring when I see the sunshine as I look out into the garden from my warm living room, and it seems just like the perfect day to me to join "2013 ... Transformations Team. I love the word and the idea of transformation, and am looking forward to make some changes this year. Together we can!!! emoticon
