Hello, my name is Layla and I'm a fellow Okie. Jeannie happened across my Sparkpage and invited me to join this team. I have worked hard for a year and two months now and have lost 98 pounds. I hope to lose another 30-35 pounds by August. I'm not in maintenance mode yet, but I've got motivation, willpower and determination enough to know I'll be there soon! I've been on Sparkpeople since February of last year and plan on using it as a tool to stick with this healthy lifestyle even after reaching goal. I'm glad to be a part of a new team.
Hello, fellow okies! Jeannie is a friend from another Spark team and told me about you! I joined SP about a year ago, two months after I started with another eating plan - Dtour from Prevention magazine. I hit goal TODAY - 122 lbs lost!!! I am a 63 yr old grandmother (turned 63 last week!) who would never have thought I would lose 122 lbs and be exercising! We live in the Tulsa area, and I work as a business admin for a local UM church. Looking forward to meeting some more OK Spark Friends!! Janet

I just found this Team last night and jumped in, even though I have been trying to figure out ways to cut down on the number of teams that I belong to. I would love to meet other Okies, either 'Virtually' or in person. I am in Yukon, and reached my Goal Weight on October 6, 2010. I have stayed within 5 pounds of that since October, but I can see that I will have to keep learning and leaning on my Sparkfriends if I am to be successful at Maintenance.

Thank you both for joining. I joined sparkpeople back in October and was doing really awesome for a while. But, I was disappointed that the only "local" groups I could find were either in OKC and/or hadn't had any activity in a long time. I think it helps so much when you have someone you can get support from other people going through the same thing.
Greetings every one first let me say i have been on SP for 3mo and i have learn a whole lot ...i have saved articles,cook some of there delicious recipes and made many friends.I am looking forward to this group growing.
You must motivate yourself EVERYDAY.

My name is Leslie...I am 27 and have been married for 2 yrs. We have a beautiful lil girl who is turning 2 in July. I dont think I have ever been small or smaller..the last time I was I think was jr high. I have lost 5 lbs so far and im really excited to know there are ppl close to me that are in the same journey of weight loss.
My name is Donna and I have four gorgeous girls. We live in Oklahoma with my husband who will be retiring from the Army this Spring. I returned to college last year and am slowly (but surely) finally finishing my degree. I've watched my weight bounce up and down over the years with each pregnancy. I'm tired of looking at all the cute clothes in my closet I wish I could fit back into. My post-baby jeans get thrown out this year for good! =D
