Hi Everyone,

I'm from Newcastle, NSW and saw this site. I'm very happy that there is an Aussie team on here. So with trying to motivate myself I needed some extra accountability so here I am.

Thanks for the inbox messages to help me start.

The support is great.

Cheers
Michelle emoticon

Hi I'm Sharmayne, from NE Vic, I did the join up thing a few weeks back before heading to work one morning......then life continued, and now I'm back here just looking to see how all this works.....and a kg heavier it seems!! I live in a very tiny country place & have to drive a lot to get to work, shops etc etc. I think my biggest problem is keeping motivated, so hope I can get a kick start on here.

Hi Guys

I joined this site yesterday, have changed my diet and commenced exercising daily about 6 weeks ago now. Have struggled to lose weight in this time and stumbled across this page in my google hunt yesterday for some answers.

My short term goal is to get under 80kg, currently 81.8 and started at 83.4. My long term goal is to get to 75kg and from there just to maintain my new lifestyle.

A bit about me, I'm 36 and live in eastern suburbs of Melbourne, I work as a Financial Accountant for a manufacturing company. I am also studying a Bach of Business which will lead to my CPA.

Hi NISHA Great to have you here! Congratulations on your engagement and how lovely to have the wedding to look forward to. You will be trim taught and terrific by "the day". Keep within your cal range. I try to stay at the lower end, track your food, it is a pain sometimes but keep at it, it makes you accountable to yourself. Watch your portions,they can get away from you. Keep moving, doing whatever to keep you flexible and burn a few cals as well. Good Luck!!

Hello. I'm Sharon from north Queensland. We recently went through Cyclone Ita and were actually the town that had the most flood damage as far as it being the biggest flood for something like almost 50 years. All good now and back to normal except for some road works. There is me, a very young 56 year old and Mr Husband a very "mature" 66 year old. He does quite well with food, whereas I seem to have a love/hate relationship with it. I'm hoping SparkPeople will help me to get my act together.

Hi, I'm Chris from Berwick, Vic. Just joined Sparkpeople yesterday.
Now that I'm in my 40s I am struggling to loose the extra kilos that I have stacked over the last year, so hopefully with a few goals and determination I will be able to get back to my ideal weight.

Nice to meet you all!

Hi everyone,
I'm happy to join Spark People down under. I've been registered a couple of weeks and enjoying the daily newsletter emails. Now it's time to get a bit more involved.
I'm 41 years old, a wife and mum, and work 2 part time jobs.

About 18 months ago I strongly felt the need to push my health and fitness further up my priority list - for most of my 30s they had taken a back seat to the rest of my life. Time to turn a new leaf at 40! I started a weekly email with 5 friends where we listed our weekly goals and achievements and swapped tips. It has been transformative. I have gone from no exercise to running the total equivalent of a half marathon and a 1km swim every week. I've also increased my children's weekly sport and several other friends have joined in for 5km and 10km races, which I do every quarter year.

The friends weekly email continues, but I felt the need for a bit of wider support, and have also found that I haven't really lost any weight. I'm currently 70kg and would like to get to 63kg.
This is where Spark People comes in - I'm looking forward to the ride!

Cheers from Murielle

Welcome to the team. You will love it here. We support one another so if you have any questions just ask, someone will have the answer. You've proved already with weight watchers you can do it. So get tracking your food and exercise on SP and you will do it again. Good luck with your journey to better health

Hi everyone, I'm new here and trying to find my way around! My name is Amy, I'm a 25 year old from Geelong.

I'm pretty excited to have joined up today. I have been trying to lose weight for a very long time. I have fallen off the wagon more than I care to admit. I went to Weight Watchers when I was 17; I got down to around 70kg but shot up to 120kg (my heaviest) within 5 years. I have got down to 105kg on my own but still have around 25kg to lose, which is daunting. Feeling positive though, the community support forum is a fantastic idea!

My only real goal is to feel healthy and comfortable in my own skin.

Please feel free to contact me, we all can use the support of others facing the same challenges.

Amy

Hello Timmeetime, I am new here too. I am a fortnight old on SP but 76 in real years.I bought a apir of swimmers..the largest in the shop and went to the local pool yesterday. It was my first time in the water for about four or five years. What have I been missing? And more to the point WHY? I don't care how I look now, I just want to get the most out of life. I want to enjoy the things that I like to do and I hate it when my body tries to dictate and stop me from enjoying life. Tomorrow I will walk a couple of kilometres and visit the gym,

Hello Timmeetime and welcome to a great team. I think you might be right about the community side of things. A lot of research shows that community involvement is a critical factor in reaching goals for many people. emoticon

Hi. I'm new.....again. Just rejoined in a strong moment and hoping to stick with it this time round and make some permanent healthy changes. Haven't been involved in the community side of things before and i think that may have been my downfall in the past. Here goes..............

Hello Again, its been sometime but I'm back.

Sort of lost my way a bit but working on a positive direction.

I'm Lea from Perth NOR, I'm 35yrs, married with 3 boys and a little girl. ranging 12yrs - 3yrs.
I'm working on being a positive me and also kicking this depression that hangs over me. I have limited support from home so this is just for me.

Dropping another 15kgs is my goal but slow and steady this time with more preparation.

You have never really lived until you have done something for someone else who can never repay you.

I am new to the SP team and only started on the last day of 2013. How fortunate that we are in the middle of a heat wave. It takes away my appetite for a start. I am sitting under the air con. on the computer and I don't feel guilty because this is all in a good cause. I am 76 years old and a great grandmother of a delightful 4 month old boy, I live in a coastal village on the Mid North Coast of NSW that is packed with tourists right now. Monday I have booked into the gym for a program called"Lift for Life". I have my doctor's permission note ready. I walk the dog at 5.30 every day because it is cool then and also because I would run out of puff if I did it any later in the day. I weigh 110 kilos which is an enormous number in pounds.
How is everyone else down under coping with this heatwave?

Hi All,

I'm Mike, 24 and from the Jervis Bay region of NSW, I am here as I am going to lose the weight and become healthy. There is no trying anymore for me it is a must. I recently got diagnosed with cardiac issues. My weight does not help this. So I must and will lose the weight. Glad to have other people here on the journey with me.

Hi, I live in Sydney, am 53 years old, love to walk my dogs, read books and love to conquer a challenge and losing weight has been one of my hardest challenges to conquer. So I am here to say that I will lose 10% of my body weight, in the next 6 months, and 2014 is going to be my year, a year where I get a great job and lose the weight that I have been struggling with for a very long time.

Hello JEZEB3LLE, welcome, where abouts on the south coast are you?
Can't really add to what POPSY190 said it sums this up perfectly.

Hello from Christchurch! Good you have found this site and joined this team - you'll get lots of information and support here as well as a fair bit of fun. It can take some time to get the hang of all that is on offer but it's well worth the effort and you can just ask if anything seems not right. You can guarantee that if you have a problem you ask about lots of other people will have the same problem. There's a huge body of knowledge in the membership and someone will always help. emoticon

emoticon . I think you are wise to limit number of teams etc. A little while ago I either left some teams or became inactive because the commitment was just too much. If I kept up with them all I ended up in front of a computer all day, which is not the point of SP!
How wonderful that you are back with family involvement this time. Have a great time meeting your goals.

Howdy, all from the Jervis Bay area. Been on Spark for a few years but the middle ones were inactive and not so successful. I have been active again here now for about 2 months and am feeling good. I know now that the reason Spark was successful at first has a lot to do with the community so slowly adding teams back. I think I got overwhelmed and had too many teams to start so going a bit slower this time around, adding just a few teams that have relevance to who and where I am.
I am Kris and have 2 daughters (16 & 18) and a wonderful husband who has joined me this time on the quest for health.

Hello Jasmine and welcome to a great team. If you go to "Start" and click on "My account" on the top left there is a place under "Information" (I think) where there is a box to tick metric. Hope this helps.

Hi All - I am 31 and a mum to 3 precious treasures. I am a PE and Health teacher, but took time off to start a family (and proceeded to become very comfortable at home lol) But now I am getting ready to go back to work next year. I love being a healthy example to my students, so it's time to shed the baby kilos. I've got 13kg to lose. Looking forward to joining with you all as we achieve our dreams

Hi, I am new to spark people, I am a 24 year old mum of 3 boys, I have a baby on the way but before you say Im not meant to be on here cause i am preg, I HAVE to be! I NEED help and I NEED support!
My story.....
I have been over weight since I had my first child, before that I was a healthy 65kg! I was 16 when I had him and over the next 2 years my weight exploded until I got to 130kg!
By the time I was 20 I was exercising like crazy n eating healthy, I weighed only 86kg! then I fell preg with #2, only to have him & 9 months later fell preg with #3, 2 years later I have allowed my weight to balloon and have fallen pregnant with #4.
No this doesn't say why I should be on here, does it????
Well I now weigh 112.5kg and have been told by my dr if I DONT lose weight before this baby arrives I will be sent to brisbane hospital to have the baby as they dont have the facilities to care for me which means I will have NO support at the hospital from my partner, no way home and a thousand other problems, I dont have to lose a lot, just 16kg's,
I need to lower my bmi from 47 to 40 which means getting my weight from 112.5 down to 96kg
I NEED a support link & I need friends BADLY
I am on another weight loss sight that I use all the time but I just dont get enough support!
PLEASE I NEED TO DO THIS! I NEED HELP!
Brisbane hospital is a minimum of 6 hours away!

Doing this for me n my baby
