Hi Callie! emoticon to Happy Healthy Sparkers!

You have a great plan in place.
I too find the tracking a time consuming thing, but it really does help.

We look forward to getting to know you!

I'm Ginger, I'm 53 and have been going through the process of releasing myself from binge eating. It hasn't been perfect, but what is? I am making great progress.

I am especially eager to lose weight as my daughter's wedding is in May.

Hey everyone! I'm Emily. I have focused on problems (and created a few along the way) for a long time. It's time for me to treat myself as well as I treat others. It's time to be positive! I feel emotionally lighter just by joining this team! I'm a happy, healthy Sparkler!

Hi! I'm Cathy. I've been on SparkPeople before and am back. I need to finish losing the 40 pounds I regained after my thyroid failed last year. I've been successful before at losing 150 pounds, so I know I can do this!

Looking forward to sharing my journey with you all!

Hi - I have been on spark for almost 5 years - one thing after another (surgeries mostly) have sidelined me in my goals - but I keep on sparking! I have gained so much health in the last five years - I am finally on my way to meeting my weight goals!

I maintain my chronic kidney disease (ckd) with diet and exercise!

Looking for more spark friends and support!

Hi, I'm Penny. I'm 39, married to a great man for 17 years and have one son who is going to be 13 on Tuesday. I have been on Spark People about 5 weeks and have done pretty well so far. I have a lot of weight to lose but I have broken it down into smaller increments just because my mind handles it better that way so I am working on my first 50 pounds right now.
I joined this team just because everyone seems so nice!!! And I like nice! I have managed to develop some pretty good habits over the last 5 weeks but of course continue to need support to stay the course to reach my goals.

Thanks.

Penny

All your life you are told the things you cannot do.
All your life they will say you’re not GOOD ENOUGH
or STRONG ENOUGH or TALENTED ENOUGH. They’ll say you’re the wrong height or the wrong weight or the wrong type to play this or BE THIS or achieve this. They will tell you no, a THOUSAND times no... AND YOU WILL TELL THEM YES

Hi Sparkers!
My Name is Rozie - not new to spark but been away for awhile helping family, but now making time to get back to my fitness levels & losing weight with the help of my SP teams and friends.
I am originally from WI but moved to Australia 30 yrs ago and married my soul mate, have 2 daughters from my first marriage & 3 wonderful grandchildren, 20, 18 and 12 yrs.
I had a very busy working career for a software house & travelled extensively, but now retired since 2008 and have been busier than ever with family and friends. Did some volunteer work for 3 yrs, but now totally dedicated to home life.
I’m currently on a health program for 8 wks, tracking everything in Spark. Too soon the program will be over and looking to find a supportive team.
Sharing, caring & supporting along each and everyone’s journey!

Hi, welcome to the team! You're so right . . . if you are that close to becoming a diabetic, it's best to lose some of the extra weight. I know . . . easier said then done but not an impossibility. We've got a lovely group of helpful, supportive ladies here and we'll do all we can to motivate you. You're not alone, we're all working at it and we have our ups and downs too.
Take it one day at a time, baby steps, you'll see a new healthy you before next summer!

It's great when we can share our journey with others who are doing the same!

Hello fellow Spark friends! I am new to Spark and still learning how to get around the different pages. I am 45 years old and live in China, Texas a small town outside of Beaumont. I have always suffered ups and downs with my weight and now since my hysterectomy last year I have gained quiet a bit of weight. I am now on the border line of becoming a diabetic if I don't get this under control. I believe in the power of support so I am here to take it one day at a time with you, my friends. Looking forward to a new healthy me for the summer!

Hi Linda, welcome to the team, it's nice to have you with us. Hope you'll join in on the chat thread, get to know us. We have a super group of friendly, helpful ladies here.
I'm glad you like the daily Devotions, reading them is a great way to start our day!

I just joined a team you are on, Deaf and HOH Sparkers and hope to see you there too! I'm 77 and lost my hearing overnight at the age of 35. I have a Cochlear Implant and do well with that but thought I'd find more info on your team and also get to know other deaf people.

So, again welcome to our team, jump in on any/all threads you wish, they are there for you!

Hi! My name is Linda. I'm an old Sparker and know some of the members from other teams throughout my Spark life. Some may remember me as KCMETROGIRL or BUNCOLADY. I am very Happy and Healthier than I was before Spark. Really enjoy Gloria's Daily Devotions on this team plus the upbeat attitude of the members. Looking forward to traveling this journey with each of you.

Where there is a will, there is a way!

Hi Marilyn, welcome to the team! Yes, Pixie is an inspiration to each of us, she is doing so great and keeps it up!
We don't do a lot of challenges but we have an ongoing Streak Challenge if you'd care to jump in and join us. When we do have a set back, we pull up our socks and start at day one again, we keep on doing it one day at a time!
We're all doing pretty good here and glad to see you on the team. You'll find a warm welcome awaits you from a group of friendly, helpful ladies!

Hi I'm Marilyn - I'm 64 years young (and retired) and reached my goal weight last November. Now I'm working to KEEP it off - not an easy task as we all know!! I found your team after reading a blog by PIXIE-LICIOUS, one of the leaders of this team. If she can streak for 191 days AND lose 71 pounds in six months this is a team I need to be on!!

A little about me - I live about 60 miles southwest of Atlanta and walk a LOT and in January started running again after many years away from it! But strength training - THAT has been a hard habit for me to form. So far my streak is 4 days - so there is no doubt what my streak goal will be!! My plan calls for one body part a day, rotating upper body ST, lower body ST, and core ST. Following Pixie's idea I'm going to make me a chart TODAY so I can check off my days of ST!!!

Can't wait to get to know everyone!!

Hi Turtle, welcome to the team. You've shown that you can take off the weight and that's great! Keep at it and it will come off.

As the heading of our team implies, we mostly chat and encourage one another so I hope you'll join in on the chat thread. We have a wonderful group of ladies here and we support one another. We don't do a lot of challenges but we have a good one on called Streaking . . . you choose something you find hard to keep at and do it daily, come in on that day to let us know how you did and see how many days you can keep that streak going. By the time you keep it for a few weeks or so, it becomes a habit.

All the best on your healthy lifestyle journey!

Hello, I am new to the team but not new to Spark have been on here for almost a year. In that time I have taken off 20 pounds , put back ten and took off that ten and one more. I am active on spark as I am retired and have lots of time on my hands. I enjoy making new friends and helping them stay motivated.

I live in sunny CA and feel for those who are being affected by the hurricane. I have a friend in FL. and try to stay in contact with her every day. She has been getting a lot of rain and wind.

I am looking for an active teem and hope this is one.

Do more of what makes you healthy

You can crumble or you can conquer

The only way to finish your workout is to start

Those who succeed are the ones who look in the mirror and see no change, but continue anyway knowing they'll get there in time

Good morning! I am a 23 year old teacher who is looking to get back into shape and be healthy before my October 2013 wedding. This team seems to be very motivating so I hope that I can join in on discussions and help motivate everyone else as well. I have been on sparkpeople for 1 week now and I have lost 4.2 pounds. I am in my second week and had a very busy weekend where I gave in to many temptations. I am trying to turn my week around and stay motivated and hopefully have another week of weight loss.

I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

-Sarah

Welcome to the team Fluff.
You seem to be doing well, losing 3.6 lbs in a week is encouraging, gives you a boost!

I bought Sparks Cookbook this year and it has good recipes in it. Also bought Curves book for their meal plan and good things in there too. Unusual for me to buy books any more!

Isn't that a shame about your pump for the pool? That's the way it goes sometimes, hubby goes away and something breaks down. I do hope you get that tended so you can get in and out of the heat.
I live in southern Ontario, Canada and we are having a heat wave here! Temps are in the 80's, 90's and feels like 110 degrees with the humidity . . . very HOT.

Looking forward to seeing you on the threads, jump in on any/all you wish!

Hello Everyone!

This seems like a very active and energetic bunch so I thought I'd join you!

It's just my husband and myself, along with our two little dogs. All the kids are grown and live out of state. My husband left last week for a six week trip out west and I thought I'd go mostly vegetarian while he's away. We were already eating "meatless" at least twice a week anyway so I thought I'd push it a little further and see what kind of changes I notice in my health/weight. I signed on here so I could track my nutrition and make sure I'm getting all the proper nutrients and decided to kind of settle in for a while and join a few groups. I'm a Wednesday Weigher and the scale tipped down 3.6 pounds this morning so something's working! (I know that's a little high but I always do that the first week or two...I'll drop back to a pound or so a week which is a healthier loss.)

I looked around the board and saw that quite a few of you are in Florida. I'm near Vicki on the Space Coast. We have a pool but the pump broke the day after my husband left and I've been getting the run around trying to get it repaired. Hopefully the new pump will be here tomorrow or Friday so I can start swimming this weekend. As you know...it's been HOT here and we haven't even hit August and September yet!

My addiction to food goes way beyond just eating it. I love to cook and spend time in the kitchen. While I don't collect many cookbooks I do scour the internet everyday for new recipes, ideas and inspiration as well as photographing and blogging about our own meals. I just love looking at and thinking about food and what I can do with it. I did however get two new cookbooks recently because I had an Amazon Gift Card that I'd been sitting on for months. I got two vegetarian cookbooks, one by Mark Bittman that I am reading like a novel and loving. So many new things I'd never heard of and combinations of food that I never would have thought of. I find it all so fascinating!

Anyway, I guess that's it in a nutshell. I'm looking forward to meeting and chatting with you!

Hi Terri, welcome to the team! We've had many new members recently and it's nice to get to meet and greet them!

I think we mainly support each other on this team by chatting, encouraging . . . we don't have a lot of challenges but we do have an ongoing one about doing a personal streak. It is really helping those of us who are into it!

Please feel free to put on any thread you like about fitness/nutrition/weight-loss . . . when members put on a thread it makes it more interesting and informative for the entire team!

I'll be popping onto your page to have a look and to greet you! See you there and on our threads here!

Hi HHS - I joined your team about a week ago, and then got socked with a super busy schedule and didn't get a chance to introduce myself right away...but I am through all that, and here to say Hi!

Your team looks to have the healthy, upbeat conversations and feedback that I'm looking for ~ no downers here! I have been on SP for about 6 months now, and I'm very pleased with the results and support that I have seen so far.

I have some professional and lots of personal experience with fitness, nutrition, and weight-loss programs, and would be happy share whatever I can. I hope that members will call on me, as I plan to call on you, when we need a helping hand.

If you'd like, visit my SparkPage, and feel free to add me as a friend, so we can get to know each other as we continue on our journey to happy, healthy, life-long Sparkers!

I'll see you in the Spark Pages!

~ ~ Terri ~ ~

My goal is to have more fitness minutes than SparkPoints!
I strive to be a body in motion, each and every day.

I'm the heaviest I've ever been in my life and it's time I get back to a weight I know will be healthier for me. I'm working towards getting down to 185 lbs. I won't be thin but I'll be much healthier than I am now.

Hi Mike, welcome to our team, I'm sure you'll enjoy being with us here.
There has been over 100 new members join our team in the past few days so I haven't gotten to meet everyone, waiting for them to come and introduce themselves. Might be more fellows here and I hope so . . . we're of all ages and we're friendly and helpful. Ask anything, you'll always get an answer.
Yes, I consider SparkPeople to be the best web site about healthy lifestyles and wouldn't be without it!

Welcome Mike!

I've seen some other teams with a man or more who are very active there. So don't let us scare you away. After all, women usually are more helpful in these areas than men. Hope we can help and support you here.

I know the name Barnhouse from a gentleman from the Philadelphia, PA area who gives occasional commentaries on our local tv channel.

Hi, I just joined SparkPeople today. I am hoping that the support will help me lose weight, get healthier, and get happier. I have tried to go it alone for a couple of years, and have gotten nowhere. It seems that everyone has only good things to say about this web site and method of support groups. Thanks for blazing the trail for me.

Re-introducing myself for the newbies...

Thought I'd better introduce myself, for those that don't know me.
I'm Vicki and I live in Florida.
I'm working towards making the healthiest choices I can when it comes to taking care of myself.
I want to make exercise a top priority as I have a couple of health issues that exercise would improve. Also it would definately give me more energy.
I am basically trying to keep all my nutritional numbers within a set goal I think will work for me. It's not strictly any one specific program. If I had to push it, I'd be more inclined to say it's a lower carb plan.
I'm working to lose about 100 lbs but have no set time to lose it in. I'd love to lose it over the next couple of years, but I tend to be a very slow loser. So I'll take it one pound at a time.

Nice to have you on the team Fran and I look forward to seeing you on the threads and Huddle!

Easter was a struggle for many, so many goodies out there!

I have the spark cook book too and have marked recipes that I want to try but I don't cook much anymore! The recipes in that book are really good though and easy to make!

Looking forward to meeting you on the chat thread.

Welcome!!
Gloria

Welcome Gloria!

Yes, the devotional is shared with us by our original leader also named Gloria. And responses to that or any other topics are welcome.

This team is all ages. Some of the topics are geared to losing weight or other desires to improve our lives. I find the support is here and I hope you'll also

It all depends on me!!

"You are capable and worthy of being and doing anything.
You just need the discipline and determination to see it through.
It won't come instantly, and you may backslide from time to time, but don't let that deter you.
Never give up. Life is an ever-changing process, and nothing is final.
Therefore, each moment and every new day is a chance to begin anew."
-Barbara Cage
