I have 97 lbs to lose and could use some support along the way. Since reaching my 50's it's been a real challenge to get any weight off. But I know with hard work and determination, I will lose all I need to lose to get back the body I know I have under all this fat.

Happy Easter.
I'm a 56 year old woman that is working on making healthier choices in what I eat and how much exercise I get. I no longer own a scale but will measure my success by how my clothes fit and how my energy level is. I'd like to get to the point where I no longer need high blood pressure pills and would love to go from my current size of 3XL down to a size Large.
I tend to lose motivation after awhile so hope the team will help to keep me motivated.

Hi, I am looking for a small group of friends, who would like to make 2013 great, but who are also looking to turn the boat around and developed an active, healthy lifestyle for the rest of our lives. I am tired of changing, trying, and any other kind of half-measure. I've had it with feeling unhealthy and sad about myself. If you think permanent change is possible, but you could do with some sincere, kind, and gentle encouragement, do not hesitate to add me as your friend. :)

Hi, ladies!!

I'm Brook, 51, and I've had weight issues since I was a teenager. I want to be more than full of good intentions, you know? I am tired of disappointing myself.
My darling daughter (my only child) got engaged on Christmas Day, and I would be so proud to have lost some weight by the time of the wedding. No date set, yet.
Looking forward to meeting all of you.

emoticon I'm a 55 year old woman that's been struggling with her weight most of my adult life. For over 18 years I managed to keep a 105 lb weight loss but when menopause hit 7 years ago, everything that had worked in the past no longer worked.
I'm in full menopause now so I feel it's time to get my weight back on track as it should be.
I have about 100 lbs to lose and will be working to do that over the next 16 months.

Hi, I'm Kristi from south central Minnesota. I'm starting my second year on Spark People and decided to add this team as a means to celebrate. I'll be 56 in less than two months. Our two daughters are off to college, so it's dh, myself, and the cat at home. I've read some of the posts here and I think I will like this list.

Hi Nancy:
So glad that you did join. You have brought our team to 50 members - not a great number but I think you'll find that we have a really active core group. Because you're now a member of the team, we welcome any suggestions or comments you care to make - You'll find that we have a monthly challenge (nothing too difficult but you can make lots & lots of points) and we have approximately three new "games" threads each month plus a Limerick thread where we have been writing one line of poetry each and you'll see that we have come up with some really great ones.
Again, welcome and please make yourself at home.

Wow, this is my first team I've joined and I already feel silly cuz I don't now if I'm joining the thread correctly. Looks like I am only replying to one message but we'll see!

My name is, you guessed it, Beckie! I'm pretty new to SparkPeople and I've only this week decided to jump in with both feet! (Teams, friends, blog, etc) Healthy Lifestyle is what I've been doing. Its been a journey of 3 years now. I quit smoking to run a half marathon and here I am, happy I did it but, 30 lbs heavier and to think, I started training for the marathon to lose weight! I'm determined to keep at it and get those lbs and others off for good!

Hi Stephanie. And we're glad you found HEALTHY LIFESTYLE FOREVER. We might not all be at the "forever" point (I know I'm not) but we are all working towards that goal.
We have a great little challenge set up each month and it might help with your commitment to yourself. Have a look at it. Don't be dismayed by the small group that are doing the challenge this month. It's summer and many people take it easier during that time. We'd love to have you join if it interests you.
Again, a big welcome to the team - this is your team too, so don't forget to make suggestions/comments and we'll do our best.

Hello! My name is Stephanie. I am __ years young...I NEVER tell my age but HOPE ONE DAY it won't be such a big deal to me.
I am a mother of 3, work for county government in my local state. LOVE blogging. I like being with my family, music, dancing, the outdoors, theater.
I am an on again off again fitness person for the past 15 years. I have been 127 lbs. and I have been 230 lbs. during that time. When I am ON...I AM ON! But often I find myself off and on...which leads me to wanting a healthy lifestyle FOREVER.
Rejoining SPARK, trying to be more honest and commited to MYSELF. Taking more permanent steps to reach my goals. Just taking it day by day.

If hunger is not the problem, then eating is not the answer.

Hi Everyone,
My name is Sandy and I have been Sparking since May 2009, but now I need some encouragement, and really need to re-learn the healthy habits I thought I'd had down pat. I have put back some weight over the winter and need to lose that and more...and keep it off! I'm looking forward to being a part of this team!

Hello all! You can call me Kel. I'm 27, from Texas. I am a soon to be nursing student I have big plans for my life.

My highest weight was 176lbs. I've since lost 22lbs and I plan to lose about 15 more.

My biggest obstacle is that I have a progressive thyroid condition. Most of the time I feel fine but sometimes I get zapped of all energy. I'm not hypothyroid yet but I'm headed that way and I want to lose the weight before I become hypothyroid.

One of my biggest goals is to help others get fit so I want to start...well a fit club. I can't wait to reach goal and help others along the way.

Nice to meet you all!

Hello, I'm Jen. I'm 31 and looking to get into good shape and maintaining a routine that will last so I can stay healthy as I get older.

I do a lot of exercising. Belly dance, leading a strength training class, zumba, cardio kick box, and step are the regular weekly things. I'll be adding in some time on the stair climber machine as my mom and I want to climb the CN Tower next year for the WWF (the animals, not the wrestlers lol)

It's a pleaseure to meet you :)

Hi Krista - yes, I think you will fit in wonderfully. Having a child with difficulties does add a lot of stress and todays lifestyle is stressful enough.

Hello, I would like to introduce myself to the group. My name is Krista, I just turned 40 and I am ready to make a change in my life. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 19 years and we have two boys ages 9 and 6. My oldest son has Tourette's Syndrome along with ADHD and those combined have put enormous amounts of stress on our family. I have gradually put on "stress" weight because I am always worrying about my oldest son and I don't take the time for myself. I joined SP to get the help and motivation to stay on track with my weight loss so that I can be healthier and be a good example for my kids. Thanks for the invite to your group- I think I am going to fit right in. emoticon

Hey Cherie:
We are all really happy that you've found this team. I hope that you'll be an active member and take part in the challenge (April Showers Challenge) and the different threads. As you can see, we are not very numerous but having so many active members, I like to think of this group as small but with the biggest heart. You'll fit right in wonderfully.
Welcome to the group Cherie

Found this on Sacost page! It completely sums up my goals! To work towards a healthy lifestyle for life! Been with SK since July of 2010. Lost 161/2 pounds. Glad I was able to work towards this goal slowly as to change my mind-set. Wii be 60 on October 2nd. I got reunited with a man that I knew when I was 17 and slim. We are so in love, and he,s my best friend! Had 3 surgeries plus a chemical imbalance which added the pounds on over the last 10 yrs! My hubbby is so happy that I found you Sparkers, It gives me moral and motivational support to follow this path to having wonderful and healthy senior yrs, but I don,t feel like a senior! Hi, to all of you! Cherie

I,m Cherie, Been with sparker for 3 yrs, I like that I'm losing it slowly! Its a lifestyle!

Hi - My name is Sue. I'll be 64 in a few months but my mind doesn't know that. I have 3 grown children and 5 wonderful grandchildren. I have a great man that I've been with for 13 years and a 6 yr old Siberian Husky ( Rocky ) - both keep me on my toes so to speak. I've been with Spark People for 6 months now and have loved every minute of it. I look forward to getting to know this group and its members.

Hello, my name is Pam, I'm 53 years old, married and have a 14 year old daughter and a three year old Shih-poo that keeps me young and happy, most of the time. I've been a sparker since April and have lost 10 pounds but gained a few back. I joined this team because I like the challenges and think they are a motivating way to lose weight. I, also, like being on a smaller team because we can get to know each other better and I find there is more friendly community support. I am really looking forward to getting to the next challenge and making new friends!

Hi Sharon and welcome to the team. Our next challenge will begin on March 1st and it's going to be fun with lots of places to get points. We'll also have a contest built in to it with a "virtual trophy (and bragging rights) for the winner)

It's great to have you here.

Hi friends,
I've been sparking since November, but just found this team via Bernadette's blog.
I've lost 18 pounds, exercise like an animal, drink lots of water, but have the darnedest time accounting for my eating.
I'll be joining you all for the next 15 day challenge!

I'm Marsha and I've lost 86 pounds. I'm 61 years old and weigh less now than I did in 7th grade. I was overweight for more than 50 years.

I still track my food every day. I workout. I drink water and eat lots of fruits and veggies.

I have one wonderful daughter and two adorable granddaughters, age 5 months and 4 years. I keep them when both parents are working. Right now that's around 20 hours a week, but I expect it to increase.

I work 2 days a week at a non-profit agency as deputy director. I do lots of different things, but writing grant proposals is one of my frequent assignments. I'm probably going to retire at the end of June.

Central Florida, Eastern Standard Time Zone

Marsha's Keys to Success = Tracking! Super Foods! Step Up Cardio! And most important: Quit Quitting!!

Glad to know that you can still do the elliptical - that's one machine that I find very difficult. Swimming is such a good all-round exercise and fun too.

Hello Everyone!
My name is Monika. I am 63 years young and have been married for 43 years. I have one son 40, and 3 grandchildren. I work as a cook at a summer resort for 6 months out of the year. I love it but doesn't really help when you are on a diet.
I have been struggling with my weight for the past 20 years. I take it off only to gain it back and more. My worst time is eating at night. I am really struggling with that.
I have lost 23 lbs since November and by joining Spark I think I can really do it this time.
I hope we can motivate each other on this journey, and help each other along the way.
( By the way I live in Ontario) I am looking forward to being part of this group.
Good Luck everyone.
Monika

Hi to all,
My name is Del. I live in NH USA. I have been happily married to the same wonderful man for almost 39 years. I love to read and travel. I love animals. I have 2 dogs and 2 cats. Oh I guess I should have mentioned my son first. He is the joy of our lives. He is 37.

I have been struggling with my weight it seems like forever. Taking weight off and putting it on. Finally my doctor made something click. He said "If you simply eat right and exercise even a little things will happen. And do not keep getting on and off the scale" Well guess what? He was right. I started at 230 pounds. I am at 211. My first goal is 199 and I plan on setting another one after that.

Looking forward to continuing my journey with all of you
Del

sick of being over weight and unhealthy

Hello, my name is Lise (pronounced Lees). I am a Canadian born but who now resides in Dakar, Senegal because of my husband's work. I'm 62 y.o. and my husband and I have two grown up daughters and four grand-children (two boys and two girls). We have the opportunity of traveling to Canada nearly every year.

I started on this journey through my sister Diane who had challenged me to a boot-camp which took place in May 2009. After this boot-camp, I stayed on because I had lost nearly 8 lbs during that first month. To date, I have lost 35 lbs and wish to get down to about 120 lbs as I am only 5'1.5" tall.

The reason for this journey was to set an example to my entire family -- husband, daughters and grand-children. If I can do this, so can they...

Hello, Bernadette!!!
Thank you for your welcoming, I am enjoying the time at the team and the boards!!!

Carmen
From lovely San Juan, Puerto Rico and loving the beach!!!

There's nothing wrong with using the word "diet". It comes from the Greek word "diaita", meaning way of life. So to lose weight and keep it off we need to change our way of life.

I tend to keep the site on all the time. I know there will be times where I would be doing homework and having anxiety attacks at the same time. I even keep the site up when I am anywhere in the house. I mainly just have it off for bed and in class or tutoring.

Hi, I'm Vicki. I'm 54 years old. I need to lose 90 lbs but for now I'd just be happy to get out of the 200's so that means 37 lbs.
I've struggled to maintain a healthy weight my whole adult life and was doing ok until menopause hit 6 years ago. Since then I've put on the 90 lbs and in 2 years time I've only managed to drop 4.8 lbs of it. I can't seem to stay motivated as I should and I let others influence me too much. I really just want to be healthier so I can get off my bp meds and stop hurting so much.

Hi, I'm Rhonda and I live on the east coast of NC. I am 46 and the mother of a 15 year old son. I became active on Spark in June of 2010 and lost 17 lbs. but marital problems and depression have taken the wind out of my sails lately. I am striving to get up and going again. I keep reminding myself, babysteps, babysteps. My spark friends are amazing. This sounds like a great team.

I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.

Hi, I'm Nancy. I'm 63, mother to 3 (plus their spouses) and grandmother to 4 still living on planet earth. We have one grand-angel who was stillborn about 10 yrs ago, so similar things always touch my heart. I live in so-Central PA (near Harrisburg). I love to knit, crochet, read, cross stitch, and travel (now that I'm retired). I love cats, but can't have any; we have a pit bull named Darby. Ok, that's probably more than you wanted to know. Haha.

Hello to Pat and Laura. We're so happy to have you with the team.

Laura wrote in her into that family is #1. I was very happy to see that, because I'm her Mom. Welcome sweetheart (lol)

Pat, I'm glad you found our team. Sometimes the little teams are hidden but you are a good detective!
Hope you will enjoy this team.

Hi Everyone,
My name is Laura and I am a 44 year old mother of 2 teenage boys. I live in Gatineau, Quebec, with my husband , sons and 3 cats. I am a winter couch potato and I hate the cold and snow, but enjoy hours of time outside in the summer. I have a very close friendship with my parents and feel family is my #1 asset. emoticon

Good Morning - I found you :-) I'm Pat - 51 yr old Mom of 5 living in cold, but beautiful, Central PA. I've lost approx 13 lbs. with SP since I started 2/14/10 and am approaching my one year anniversary here. I'm very grateful to have found this site and can use all the support I can get. Have a great day! Pat

I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.
