Hello everyone,
At the age of 45 I've decided for the first time ever to go on a diet. Quite a scary prospect really.
It's something I have never done before, but over the last 5 years the pounds slowly started to creep up and it's time to do something. After a life full of sport, an injury put an end to my sporting career about 15 years ago. Since then I have done nothing....
So saturday was my start dieting day and I started using the beginners video's on Jessicasmithtv. I have never done any sort of fitness workout, so I am bouncing around completely uncoordinated and feeling like a total idiot. Why can't my arms move in opposite direction of my legs? emoticon
But my aim is to loose 10 kilo's and do a 30 min. workout every morning.
My main dietary vice.... it's a bad one..... Coca Cola!

Hello Everyone, I'm Rachel. I am a native of Virginia living in the small town of Druten for the last 14 years. I moved to the Netherlands because my Dutch husband could not move to the states as he has 2 children from his previous marriage. I like living here, but I'm glad that I can still keep in touch via internet emoticon I joined Spark People for the meal plans and calorie tracking...these things make it much easier to hold myself accountable!

Trouwens, als je een rasechte Nederlander bent, dan kun je gewoon in het Nederlands communiceren emoticon

Hi, I'm Ingrid. Living near Eindhoven. I'm too focused on food, what works against me in my weight loss journey. It would be nice to have some buddies on SP.

Hi everyone, I'm a brit living in holland 30 years, my daughter was born here; am a single mum, and a few years ago diagnosed diabetic so have to take medication.. since that day my weight has been on a steady upwards roll..haha.. with the diabetic diet its hard to lose the weight.. so I've just recently discovered SP via Dr Oz & Oprah... so I'm new to all this and have still lots to discover on this site.. i had a good week but this last 2nd week i had a few days on zero.. I'm on a tight budget too which does not help.. not affording to go to a gym is a big setback.. i rely on 10 minutes video's from coach Nicole.. so its a little a time not a pound a week but maybe a pound a month.. but I'm so happy i found this site.. i wish all of you success in accomplishing your goals emoticon

Hi

Living near Den Haag, originally from the UK.

Aim is to loose 25kg and generally get a lot fitter (and lighter).

I travel a lot of work which gives me a few extra challenges but nothing that can't be worked out.

Hi, my name is Courtney. I am soon moving to the Netherlands because my husband is in the Air Force. I'm excited to learn about the culture, and I hope to find a way to keep up my healthy lifestyle. If there is any information on the Netherlands anyone would like to share that'd be great!

Thanks to Karin for taking on the co-leader role. Hope you're all finding motivation to exercise in all the rain. It's not bothering me much, I just walk and bike in the 1/2 hour time periods that it stops. I do row in the rain though, although I've never had a downpour for the entire hour. Oh I take that back, one time I was out on a 3 hour row, and it must've rained for a good 2 hours before the skies finally ran out of water.

My name is Carolynne and I've been around Spark since 2007 or so. I've had 2 babies since, hence the absenses, but now I'm back to lose the weight I put on for good. I can't call it "baby weight" anymore, especially since my baby is walking around and speaking in full sentences. So no more excuses, off this weight comes!

Hoi allemaal!

Ik ben een 29-jarige juf, en wil graag 6 kilo afvallen voordat ik 30 wordt in Februari. Vroeger heb ik enorm geschommeld in gewicht, maar da's gelukkig al minder. Mijn grote zwakten zijn kaas (hoezo hollands? emoticon ) en wijntjes drinken.

Zie jullie op het forum! x

Hallo,

Ik ben Lisa en ben 18 jaar oud. Sorry dat ik Nederlands praat, maar dat gaat mij wat beter af. Nou ik ben nieuw op Sparkpeople en woon in Nederland. Dus vind het wel leuk om te zien dat er meerdere mensen uit Nederland hierop zitten. Ik heb besloten dat ik wil afvallen aangezien ik 1.59 ben en 100 weeg. Heb ik een BMI van 40.2 en dit is niet gezond. Heb mezelf altijd wijs gemaakt dat ik niet hoef af te vallen omdat er niks mis met mij is. Vind ik eigelijk nu nog steeds. Maar aangezien mensen zeggen dat ik toch echt te dik word wil ik gaan afvallen. Dit is niet alleen voor hun, maar ook zeke voor mijzelf. Ik zoek nog wat budies hier op SP. Het lijkt mij fijn om met mensen er over te kunnen praten.

Hi all,

My name is Sabrina, and is spite of what my username says I am in Maastricht. I joined SP a few years ago when I got an app for it, I registered to use the app, but never really used the app or the site.

Back in April, I was getting really frustrated with my weight and decided to give dieting another go ( it has been 4 years since my last diet!). Somehow looking for info I happened upon SP again and decided to use it fully this time.

My Dutch is niet goed, so sorry. I speak English, French and Spanish if you are in the area and would like to meet for a bike ride or walk please contact me!

Hi there! Im Emily and I want to lose weight so I feel healthier and so that I can fit in normal sized clothes. I have about 35 pounds to lose. I am lazy so that is a weakness. And my love for chocolate and red wine makes weight loss difficult. But I like to run, so Im doing the C25K program (currently in week 4). When I am not wrangling teeagers at school I like to read, play with my dog, make jewelry and cook.

Hello everyone! While I don't live in Amsterdam my great grandparents did until they moved to Canada. I am 3/4 Dutch and hoping that was enough to be a part of the group ;)

Well, I started SP because I have a wedding in 74 days. I'm trying to lose about 16lbs before then. After that I just want to be healthy and active.

I think that my weakness is exercise. I struggle especially in the winter time. I have just decided that I want to start running. I have made a plan and will start it this Sunday. I am excited to be getting in shape and to be able to actually run a mile. (I have never been able to do that in under 10 minutes) So, lots of changes in the future and I am so excited!!!

Name: Natasja
Goals: I want to be healthier and feel better. Oh, and I want to start training for a 5k!
Weak point: I have some trouble eating the right foods. I love fruit. It's vegetables that I have a problem with, to be honest. I don't like most of them. But I (try to) eat them anyway.
Strong point: That's a tough one. I actually LIKE to exercise. I guess that's a strong point.
Hobbies: acting, music, exercising, doing fun stuff with friends or my boyfriend.
Extra: getting my VWO-diploma this year, so I'm going off to college next year. Already excited about that! And I've been together with my amazing boyfriend for over 2 years now.

Hi everybody.

My name is Jorien. I am Dutch and I live in the Netherlands.
My goal for this year is to get rid of the last 10 kilo's. I am not sure if it will work out, because I find myself slacking on the exercise. Especially with all the snow right now.
But I am starting portion control again and adding fruit to the plate.
So we'll see what happens.

Cheers,
Jorien

(it's strange to think this is the only group where people can actually understand my nickname :))

It's all about loving yourself enough to take care of your body.

If you don't recognize the topic line, it's a lyric to a Grateful Dead song, one of my favourite bands. :)

Hello!

I'm Sarah, originally from Long Island, NY. I live in the Netherlands and teach at an American school. I've struggled with weight for my whole life. I'm stuck at my "weight-barrier" - it's the weight I've yet to conquer! So...while I'm the thinnest I've been in years...I'm certainly not there yet! I'm here for help!

I hope to meet some kind and motivating people on this website to help kick my butt into high gear. I run a weight loss competition at my school and I need to live what I preach to my fellow teachers!

Thanks for reading :)

Hi Everyone,

I live in Canada and my partner is Dutch. I have been trying to learn Dutch for the past 10 months I am getting much better I understand alot now but I still have a hard time speaking and writing.

We went to the Netherlands for 4 weeks in the winter and I learnt a bit while there. But mostly he translated for me. I am also taking a course in the fall. Also his mother is coming from the Netherlands in 1 week and staying with us for 3 weeks so I can practice my Dutch with her.

I thought it might be neat to join this group. I am also on a weight loss journey and have about 20 pounds to go! I love food it is my favorite thing in the entire world. It is the topic I talk and think about most days but I have strong willpower when I want to so I am hoping I can kick butt and lose the weight.

Is anyone else here from Canada?
Alicia

Hi, My name is Petra(fying (lol) and I'm a dutch woman living in Amsterdam. I've spent a lot of time with english speakers, so much so that I consider myself bi-lingual. I am a bit strange because of my Asperger's syndrome. To quote the Rivella commercial: Een beetje vreemd, maar wel lekker. (A bit strange, but good (tasty) non the less.

Strong point: I tend to get a little obsessed, when I really go for something.
Weak point: I tend to get overwhelmed by the bigger picture. I have to remember to break things down in to manageable chunks.

I started my weight loss journey in 2005, but I couldn't join Spark people then, because before it was free you needed a credit card to join from oversees. I didn't find out that it was free, until I finally got my credit card earlier this year. I have lost a total of more than 50 pounds, and only have about 10 pounds left to lose. Unfortunately those are the hardest to lose.

I am looking for a Spark buddy, preferably from/in the Netherlands, because of challenges specific to this country, one of them being, that a lot of things used in american recipes are not available here.

Sorry for making this such a big post. I am looking forward to becoming part of the team.

Goedemiddag dames en heren (?)
I'm not sure how many of you actually speak dutch so because I don't want to be rude, I'll write this in english. My name is Karin, I was born in Rotterdam and left Holland for the first time in 1994. I moved to New Zealand and worked and lived on the cruise ships in the States/Caribbean/Mexico for a couple of contracts. In 1998 I resided permanently in New Zealand. I got married in 2003 and had my beautiful twins nearly two years ago in May 2007. Last October we moved to Australia where we are setting up a new life. I need to lose 21 kilo's. I've lost 11 now but still have a long way to go. Nice to see that there is a dutch team. I had no idea until today. ( I'm a member of SP since early Feb ) Nice to "meet" you all.

Hi , I'm an English speaker from down under, now living in the Netherlands for 7 years but still my Dutch isn't very good because I work with English speakers. I'm trying to get fit and lose a little weight to be more healthy. But I'm finding the food tracker quite hard to use in the Netherlands - I have to enter the details for so many foods from the packets - takes a long time so I hope some of you can help.

Hi Lilacspecs,
Welcome!!!
It's really difficult to translate the American names for different food into Dutch. I have the problem the other way around when I'm reading the recipes here.
And Yes: Lean Ground Beef is Filet American.
(Hope you don't feel too lost in your local Supermarket!) If you have any questions please feel free to ask! emoticon

Kind regards,
Mamaite
