time and track my food too. Exercising presently 3-4 times a week and wish I had time to do
more. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Thanks for sharing. I will read more of your posts later and respond to some.

Hi!
Just found this team and decided to join up. I'm looking to improve my fitness level, and hoping that joining a few teams more suited to my specific goals will help with that.

I've been on Spark since January, but I have not been terribly active on the forum, I've made it one of my goals for the month of June to become a more active part of the community.

CTRSARA - First of all, welcome to posting on the team. LOL. Second, even maintaining on Christmas is a goal for some people (myself included) because there are so many temptations around every corner. So, of course losing 1 - 2 lbs would be fantastic work! You have some great goals and wonderful reasons for aiming for them! I know you can do it! Keep up the fantastic work!

I'm not exactly new, but I don't know if I ever introduced myself. And I'm not very good about posting in any of the teams I'm part of, but you ladies are so on top of it and I always have stuff in my Spark inbox from you, so I'm going to try to be active here and see if it help motivates me!
My name is Sara, I'm 30, happily married, and have 3 children: 6, 5, and 2.5. I have lost 20 lbs this year (nowhere near what I wanted, but much better than the alternative) but I'd like to lose another 10 in the next 2-3 months. At the end of February we are hopefully planning a Disneyland trip with our kids, and sometime soon after that we want to try to get pregnant again, so I really really want to be at a lower weight and in shape before then. I am in decent shape right now after a year of working out, but am still nowhere near a "normal" BMI. (I just dropped down into the merely "overweight" category though!!) Another 6-7 lbs and I will be at my pre-3-babies weight, so I'm kind of shooting for that, but would love to get down closer to 155 if possible. (I'm 168 right now) I guess even if I lose one or two lbs over the next few holiday weeks it'll be a success, though, right?

So great to have you on the team Amalia! I appreciate you signing up for both my teams :) I have been a little busy this semester so I have not been posting to all the threads and haven't posted a team challenge yet. Once things calm down I plan to get back on track. Feel free to explore and let me know if you need anything :)

Hi Everyone. My name is Amalia. I'm 26 years old and I'm trying to get healthy (probably like everyone here). emoticon I have my good days and my bad days. Today so far is good because I just woke up (as I mentioned in the chit chat room), but I hope this headache goes away soon. Work will not be happy if I have to call in sick because of it. It's one of those ones that could turn into a migraine really quickly. Anyway, what else do you want to know about me? Just ask and I'll tell. emoticon

Hi all! My name is Susan. I am 45 years old, married (25 years) and have 2 grown children and a gorgeous granddaughter. I knew I was getting bigger and bigger but the reality smacked me when I went to the Dr. in March and the scale screamed 349 pounds! I knew things had to change because I am tired of taking the pharmacy of medications everyday. I lost 18 pounds before finding SP in May. I found the site by a fluke but I believe it is an answer to prayer. Since joining, I have lost 21 pounds. This is NOT a diet for me but a lifestyle change. I am exercising daily which is a miracle in itself because like a lot of people, I don't like to exercise. It is getting better but I don't think I am ready to say that I like it! lol Okay so I am going to shut up for now as I don't want to give it all to you at once! lol I look forward to getting to know everyone!

Hello Team! I am a 40-something, single mother of 1 teenager. A few months ago I was at the highest weight I have ever been, and decided it was time to seriously do something about it. I joined Sparkpeople 8 weeks ago, and have lost 28 lbs. so far. I'm looking forward to the rest of my journey and finally meeting my goal. Thank you for letting me join your team!

Hi everybody! :) I'm Chee and I'm new to Sparkpeople. My friend recommended this site to me a month ago and I haven't started till today. So far it has been exciting to be on this website when I got to learn how to keep track of what I eat, learn different exercise I can do, and meeting new people! I'm hoping that I can lose the weight and keep it off. I've tried many times before and failed and now I'm at my second highest weight in my life. I've already trimmed off 8 lbs before joining this website, but I need more to go and that's why I've joined this website. Thanks for reading.

Thanks for inviting me to this team! :)
I've messed up on the posting, so I posted this in the wrong spot before; sorry about that.

Hello - I just found SparkPeople today and joined up. As of six weeks ago, my weight was the highest it's ever been: 310 pounds. I found that reality terrifying. I have lost 15 pounds since then but am loosing motivation. I'm glad I found this site today - it's what I needed and I thank you for inviting me to join this team. Lois emoticon

My name is Tatjana and I am trying to get in shape and I am trying to get in Shape (the magazine). Basically I want to work out and get myself in shape to get more modeling gigs. I have no interest whatsoever in becoming an anorexic runway model, but I would love to do some more fitness, swimsuit and lingerie modeling. I have had some local experience but to get to the next level, I know I need to tone up a bit more. I have noticed that I often lack the motivation to do something. In college I had classes and was in dance groups and constantly active. Now I am doing stuff, but mostly I am just working on my computer and applying to auditions. I want to actually go out there and get gigs and I know for that I need to get off my butt and do something. I hope to find the support that I need on Sparkpeople and I am grateful for any advise or motivational (virtual) kick in the behind that I can get!

Hi, I'm Caitlin. Thank you for inviting me to be apart of this team! I'm a little nervous about putting myself out there, but I'm serious about reaching my goal of 50 pounds lost and think that the support of others with the same goals will help tremendously. I hope that everyone is well and hope that we can help each other out!
Thanks again!

Caitlin

Hey everyone,

My name is Ally and I am working hard to reaching my goal weight of 125. I am doing a variety of things to reach that goal. I started the HG3 program through my wellness clinic in Marietta, GA. In February, lost, 20 lbs, and now I am here. I have been doing Zumba Kinect about 1 1/2 weeks and I started Kinect Active 2 the other day. So technically I am into 2 different workout programs and using SP trackers so that I say in focus. From 175 to 159, overall I have went from 37.6 BMI to 34.0 BMI. I will be extremely happy when I reach under 32.0 BMI which is my goal right now.

We can do this! I am looking forward to chatting with all of you but for now I just finished my exercise and I need to go to bed.

Thank you for the invite!

Ally

Hi! I'm Kathy. I live in PA, near Philadelphia. This is my second tour of duty with SP. The first time I was here I was very successful. Then I got lazy. It's taken me almost 3 years to get to where I am now - which is almost right back where I started. (booo! Hissssss!) I've been back about a week and, do far, I'm doing pretty well. I joined this team because it appears that you all are pretty active, which is what I need.

Other tidbits about me: I'm a dog lover, amateur photographer, avid reader, and a politics junkie.

My favorite exercise is walking and riding my bike. I'm trying to get into jogging, too, but I'm just beginning.

I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone and cheering you on to your healthy living goals!

Let's Spark it up!!!

Hi my name is Josie and I am new to spark people. I just got engaged and I want to get in great shape so I can fit into my dream wedding gown. I am not very self motivated so I am looking for a support group and some challenges to keep me going. Thanks and good luck to all....we can do it we just have to believe in ourselves.

Hi I'm Casey and I'm new to Spark. I live in Massachusetts and I am a breast cancer survivor of 2 years. Thankfully I caught it early! Early detection is KEY and what saved my life. Now that I've been given a second chance at life I am getting my act together and that means getting in shape and losing weight. I am having a love affair with the Elliptical. I LOVE it. I put on some country music and can stay on for 30 minutes! Looking forward to making new friends and getting in shape!

Been walking dogs for a living for over three years now, and recommend a canine and dog walking as one of the best ways to get fit. I've got a hound that gets me up to 6 mph according to my GPS. After losing my job in journalism, I opened a boarding kennel for dogs, which keeps me moving. Two granddaughters 18 months apart in age who are with me while their parents work also keep me moving. While my BMI is good, I'm just working it that way, something that gets harder all the time. Hoping Spark can help keep me on track!

Hi Team!

My name is Debbie. I have been on & off SparkPeople for about 5 years. I have successfully lost some weight, then life happened (baby #3, etc.) and would like to work at losing some more. I have come to the conclusion that I don't need a magic number on the scale, I am looking to get healthier, fit & toned.

I look forward to getting to know you all! emoticon
