Hi, I'm Vicki. I live in Titusville, Fl. I'm 55 years old and 70 lbs over weight. I've been trying for over a year to get my weight down and all I've done is yo-yo back and forth. I did lose 12.2 lbs in 2011. I've started a low carb plan like I did back in the 80's ( I lost 105 lbs in 13 months and kept it off for 18 years), and I'm hoping to get the weight back off over the course of the next 2 years. I'm not nearly as active as I used to be so I know the weight won't come off as fast as it did back then. Plus I've gone into full menopause so my body tends to have a mind of it's own. I lose motivation easily so I'm hoping the team will help keep me motivated to stay on track. Thanks for having me.

I just had some wonderful dark chocolate before I spotted this group. It seemed serendipitous. Positivity is better than disgust with myself. Slow and steady life-changes are how I hope to lose weight.

Thank you very much. Really appreciate it. I had some wonderful chocolate last night, but it's been very busy with the 4th and I'm trying very hard not to get out of control. I'm starting to really want to keep eating today and this weekend. Trying to control it, but....haven't felt like this in a while. Thanks! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hello! My name is Bridget and I live in PA. This is my second go around on Sparkpeople and last time I was here team leader Paula was a great support to me. One of my first stops was to check back in with her and she let me know about this team. All I know is I really need to get back on track and feeling better!

...If you went running when you first started thinking about it, you'd be back by now.

...focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.

No ma'am, you didn't say it all before! You are speaking language I totally understand! I used to go to church camp every year on the Payette Lake. Grew up in Notus, now live in Wilder and work in Nampa! Sounds like you hit all around here, Echo!

I will continue to be praying for Wayne and Paula ... Stress can rob us of so much ...

More prayers please for Paula and Wayne. He's back in hospital. Stress.

When I grew up in Idaho my Dad had a gold mine up at Warren. We always had to go through McCall and around Payette Lake. It is really beautiful. I really miss going up to the mine. those summers were utopia for me.

My middle little brother was born in Payette, big little sister was born in Grangeville, little little sister was born in McCall and little little brother was born in Weiser. My big little brother and I were born in Salem, Oregon. I'm the oldest of 6. Maybe I already said all this before. Oh well, blame it on "becoming a Senor Citizen". lol Hugs, Echo

McCall is indeed beautiful. Stanley is also incredible if you ever get the chance to visit there. I missed the Ice Carnival in McCall this winter and will probably regret it for awhile but maybe I'll just appreciate it more when I get to go again. I think anywhere is nice as long as home is where your heart is. I'd move to Kentucky to be by my in-laws if that were possible but for now, I'm content right here, right now.

it's 8:00 a.m. here -- I want to let you know something -- I just got a call from Paula -- she said the ambulance had just left taking Wayne to the ER. She won't know anything for awhile, but of course at this point she can't go with him. I know Paula is a strong person despite her medical problems, but this is really a lot of stress. I told her to get on the computer and stay busy. But, am worried for her.

Paula and Wayne need all the prayers we can give them. Hugs, Echo

I'm having pain in two different places in my back today. I don't want to miss a day of exercising; I'm just going to be very careful.

I was born in St. Louis; I'm city/suburban girl, but I did spend a week in Idaho many years ago in the cabin of some friends. It was on a lovely little lake in the mountains south of McCall. Absolutely loved it! I could so live there. So I'm a little jealous. I don't really like living in the middle of the southern plains, but hubby and I talk about moving to mountains somewhere when he retires (in just a few years). I shouldn't say I don't like living here exactly because Norman, OK has been a great place to raise a family, but we both want to live in a place that has some natural beauty. Oklahoma has beauty, but you have to really be looking for it.

There is just something about Idaho that seems to call to people who's hearts were born here. I was actually born and raised for a little while in Coeur d' Alene and then moved to the southwest (almost Oregon border) area. Both area of Idaho are lovely in their own ways. The nice thing about where we live now is you can be camping in the mountains in 2 hours or less! Thanks for the welcome! I look forward to being a part!

Hi Eda --A big Chocolate Welcome to our Chocolate Gang. We want to have fun while we are caring and sharing to reach our goals. Will look forward to have you participating in our challenges and games. The more of us, the more fun.

by the way, I grew up in Idaho -- the mountains, pine trees, rivers are ingrained in my whole being. I miss it - have spent too much time in the desert. Planning on moving to MN where my son lives. It doesn't have mountains, but it's green and water and wildlife.
Chocolate Hugs, Echo

Thanks, Ladies, for the great welcome. And actually, I'm not a huge chocolate addict anymore. I enjoy Dove Dk Choc covered almonds on a regular basis but have managed to kill most of my chocolate cravings over the past 7 years. When my hubby and I got married, his "emergency" food for when he was having a low sugar problem (he is a "on the pump" diabetic) was - you guessed it - candy - usually fun sized candy bars that were all around the house. I had to train myself NOT TO WANT them .... plus I've really always been more of a buttercream frosting (cake is just the vehicle to get it to my plate) and donuts and anything bread related! I'm a hopeless (recovering) sugar and carb addict ... Don't get me wrong - I can eat a box chocolates just as easy as the next gal as long as I have hot black coffee and a napkin - it's just not my first choice! Thank goodness I just finished lunch and am full right now! emoticon

Hi ... My name is Eda (pronounced with a long E and a short A - it's a family name). I hail from Idaho, born and raised here except when I was in the Army. I am an empty nester, which still makes me sad and not yet a grandmother which makes me happy! I'm married to my very best friend who is also my support on my life journey and my biggest fan on my weight loss adventure. I am a 19 year 911 operator/police/fire/ambulance dispatcher and still love my job most days.

I look forward to being part of a group of people who are motivating/motivated, honest but not harsh and supportive. Hope I've found a "new home" here on Spark where I can settle in for a long while! God bless ... Oh ... and thanks for the goodie! I love it! :)

I'm finally introducing myself to the team.

My name is Karen and I live in Mississauga, Ontario (near Toronto) with my two sons ages 17 and 21. I work a desk job in I.T. (computers) so I'm sitting on my butt most of every day. Because of that and a lifetime of trying to lose weight, my metabolism is down for the count. I recently picked up a copy of "The Metabolism Miracle" by Diane Kress which I heard about right here on SparkPeople. For the first 8 weeks, I'm retraining my body how to handle carbs. So very low carbs for another 6 1/2 weeks.

Since I love, love, love chocolate so when Paula invited me to join, I jumped at the chance. I guess for he 6 1/2 weeks, this will be my chocolate fix. I'm not willing up the real stuff forever but for now, I have to get this under control.

I have a secret weapon or two, though. My low-carb protein shake is chocolate flavour. emoticon

Let's see, what else? I'm a crafter and a painter and I balance my creative side with a love of math. (So I'm twisted, what can I say?) My love of math led me to computers and I've made a career out of it so I guess I can't complain.

Well, that's it for now. Oh, except that we have a long weekend this weekend here in Ontario.

Hi everybody. I joined at the invitation of Paula. Love the name of the team and all chocolate means to me. Afraid I'm quite the chocoholic and a good portion of my time is spent practicing portion control and moderation where it is concerned.

Best way to get to know me is click on my 'kitty' and visit my Spark Page. I'm currently recovering from a heart attack but will be joining the team activities soon.

Nice to meet all of you. I've read the posts below and believe I'm in good company. I particularly like some of the team goals...with laughing at myself one time a day being my favorite.

Have a good Saturday. I'll see you on the boards.

Hello Everyone! I'm Gail and was invited here by my friend, Nancy. I also live in Norman, OK where I am a stay at home mom with a sweet husband and 3 lovely daughters. I homeschool them all right now, teach at their co-op, and try to keep us with their busy schedules! I've been a member of Spark People for just over a year, but have only recently decided to get serious about my life and food choices. I look forward to getting to know you better!

Thanks for inviting me Paula. Looks like a fun team. And as a confirmed chocoholic what could be better!. Someone on the thread mentioned what her favorite chocolate is - mine would be peanut butter cups but I am really into dark chocolate now.

By the way, Go Packer!!! beat those steelers.

For my challenge, I live in Maryland and therefore in the Eastern Time Zone.

Nancy and Stacey -- I didn't get here any earlier. Welcome to our chocolate group. Please keep checking in on our other threads. Paula has set up some neat, fun stuff. Also, every time we post on our team we get the team goodie points. So whenever Paula wants to hand out goodies to us she'll have enough to go wild with. :) :) See you soon, Hugs, Echo

Hello Everyone. I'm Stacey and I live in Alaska. I've been on spark for about a year an a half and just had to join this team. Paula invited me, but when I saw the name, I knew this was a group I had to be a part of. Not just because of Chocolate but because to me I think of the name being about how we are all a little different and yet each one is wonderful.

My husband and I are big sports fans so we will be watching the Superbowl and rooting for your Steelers.

Hi Everyone,

I'm Nancy and I'm typing on a crummy laptop so this will be short for now.

I live in Norman, OK, where my hubby teaches Music Theory (OU) and I teach Latin to homeschooled kids. I'm in CT right now visiting my son and his family, including my new granddaughter, who is one and a half weeks old.

I will be traveling Sunday, so I will miss the Superbowl and Keith. Sigh.

Hi all -- Sorry I'm a little late getting here. -- I know I have excuses but can't remember them right now.

It's great to have you two - Nadine and Diana -- I think we'll have fun and sharing along with a few bites of chocolate. lol

I live in Tucson, Arizona - hot, desert, sand, cacti everywhere - Have been back here since 1998 because my Mom and Dad were here. I wanted to spend as much time with them as I could. Dad passed away 6 years ago and Mom has been gone since the day before this Christmas. I have planned all these years that I'd get out of the desert and the heat. I never want to see another cactus again. I have a Penske truck all locked in for June 29 and hope I have a place to live as of July 1. Moving to Minnesota - my son lives in Lakeville - will only be a couple hours from Paula.

My worst problem is fibromyalgia which makes me tired and have pain but I find I can sit down and put my feet up and recharge my battery and get up and go again. Everything else I have is controlled with medication, so I figure I'm just fine.

My son - Morgan - is somewhat disapproving of me driving a 12' truck all the way up there, but I've done thousands of miles of driving, a lot by myself. I did drive a big pickup truck and I figure I can drive this one. I'll go to the Penske lot and practice a couple time just to get the feel of how it handles. I'm looking forward to moving. Have every detail overplanned -- lol well, if there's glitches I'll deal with them. Just thinking about it like I'll be in a covered wagon going across the prairie -- out house on wheels hooked on behind. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
