Tim,

I live 2 hours away from Manila in Laguna, Calamba. Still, the pollution is thick at times. It mostly is from the Tricycles. They are old even if they are kept meticulously clean. I do love the character of the traffic, though. Everyone cooperates with each other. Miami has hateful traffic. I am very glad to be away from the Miami traffic.

Bye now

Welcome Carol. I am from Dallas, TX. I was stationed at Pearl Harbor for 2 years. Sure wish I could retire to in Hawaii! Texas was nice, but I loved Hawaii. I did not get to be youngest here for long... emoticon

Welcome Elona. I am living in Iloilo (Western Visayas) and we don't have near the traffic as Manila - but I still have to wear a mask a lot. The air gets so thick, doesn't it?

Hi!

Thanks for the friendly welcome emoticon

Oh! How nice there is a fellow expat here! Thanks for the tip about Tim :). I wonder if he is the same member that messaged me the other day. I got a random message from a member who said he was from the Philippines and to touch base with him if I needed any information or help about the Philippines. I thought it was very nice of him to do that.

The Philippines has a lot of foreigners that have settled there. My son is one of them. He had an online relationship with a Filipino woman. They found each other in a chat room, became fast friends. Several months went bye and they fell in love. My son knew he had met the woman of his dreams. Five years went by. Last year in November he moved to the Philippines to be with her. They will marry in the Spring. I am so happy for my son and his fiancee. They get along very well and love each other very much. I'ts not every day you can say you have met the woman or man of your dreams. He calls the Philippines paradise. I wonder why. emoticon

Bye now

emoticon to our team Elona, so good to see you chose to join us. I'm Gloria and I'm one of the 'most senior' ones on the team, lol. Older in age but still young at heart and mind, that's a great way to be. I empathize with you about having that pain for a few years ... I had a back & leg pain for two years that caused me to not walk much and boy, the weight piles on quickly. Now the pain is being managed and I'm really struggling to get the extra weight off.

What breed of dogs are Apollo and Pluto? I love dogs and mainly had Chihuahuas, tiny and easy to carry, lol. Dogs that love to walk would be great!

We're a positive minded team, we have our ups and downs but we like to think positive about life. You're in the right place, do come on our talk thread and chat with us, get to know us. We're friendly and supportive.

See you on the team!
Gloria

emoticon to the team, Elona! Another of our newer members, Tim, lives in the Philippines , as well.

We are here to support each other through thick and thin and the ups and downs of life, that come to us, all.

I'm Chris from Richmond Virginia. A horticulturalist, by trade and love what I do.
It is a bit of a juggling act, work, home ad helping to care for my 92 year old mother.

I gained over 30 pounds when my oldest son passed away in 2014 and have lost 16 of the grief, weight this year.
My other two children, live in the Richmond, area too.

Tigger my cat cheers me on.

Let's enjoy traveling this happy journey, together.

Hi, emoticon
My name is Elona and I was born and raised in Manhattan, New York City in 1950. I moved to Florida in my early 20's, got married, had my daughter, Jesica. I got divorced, became a registered nurse, married again. I had my son, Michael, became widowed when my son was two and since then have been without a mate. In 2002 I had my grandson, Jiovanni. He is now 14. I had a super great career as a pediatric private duty nurse. I retired 2003 to take care of my mom at home. She had Altzheimers. I never returned to nursing again. Instead.I became a children's Red Cross swimming instructor and life guard. I still work as a swim instructor to this day. As a child I was near anorexic, but not quite. I was very thin and very active. I was raised to eat what I could, having a poor appetite. My mom and step dad would encourage me to eat new foods. My mom put everything on my plate even if I didn't take a bite. It helped me learn what a balanced meal was like. In 2000 I developed a sever back condition related to rheumatoid arthritis. I wasn't officially diagnosed till a few years later. Those years were hard due to pain and disability. I could barely walk and laid in bed a lot. It was at this time my appetite improved, but not for the right reasons. I was eating to quell the pain. I gained around 50 lbs within two years.. Having no experience with weight gain or dieting I sought the help of a personal trainer. Within one year I lost the weight I had gained. Unfortunately, I gained it all back in one year and have struggled with it to this day. Fortunately, I found Spark People. It has been my saving grace. I have been a conscientious member for 4 years. I have learned a great deal about myself, my food habits and exercise. I have returned to eating clean and healthy like I did in my childhood. Thank goodness for a good upbringing in terms of food. I have also learned to exercise regularly and learned to really like it. I also practice Tai Chi. My favorite activities are swimming, of course. Lol, and walking. I do some weight lifting with hand weights I am pretty strong and can lift 20 lbs without too much effort X 15 reps.. Last month I left Miami with abandon. I moved to the Philippines. And as my son terms it to "real retirement". This is the first time in so many years I have the opportunity to focus on myself. Well, that is, besides my dogs, Pluto and Apollo. They are 6 year old rescue brothers, I got them when they were 5 months old from Pet Finders. com. They keep me hopping for sure. This last month I didn't have much time to swim, but I had lots of time to walk with my dogs. My favorite walking place is the steep hill on my street. I walk their 4 to 5 times a day. It's still hard to walk up the hill. My thighs hurt and I huff and puff up the hill. and I really like the Philippines. The people, even strangers are kind and friendly.Living here has it's benefits,health wise and risks. The food is fresh. I mean when I shop at the market for Talapia the fish are literally jumping. I can go home and eat fresh fish and fresh vegetables most any time I want. The risks here are few, but there is one thing that is not good. The traffic. There is a lot of traffic where I live and no emissions law. So, pollution is a problem. Sometimes I wear a mask to protect myself when the traffic is really dense. Most of the time it's not so bad though.

Well, there you have it in a nutshell!

I expect to have a good and positive minded time here. I like positive atmospheres and it's contageous. I hope to catch some of the contagion here. Lol.

I apologize for my long bio I just couldn't help myself. Lol.. I got caught in the moment.

Thanks for letting me share so much :)

Hi everyone!

I'm Carol and live in Houston, TX....or more specifically a 'burb called Clear Lake. Grew up here, sold everything I owned and moved to Kauai, Hawaii, opened up my own business and lived there for close to 15 years. My high school prom date (we were friends back in the day) tracked me down on Facebook, courted me over the phone and once again I sold everything I owned and moved back. We are married now and bought a house about a mile from where we both grew up.....talk about full circle!

Anyway, in the two years I've been back on the mainland, I've gained back 40 or so pounds. Also in those 2 years I quit sparking...hummmmm, correlation? It's time to get back into the swing of things and on the right track.

Hope you are all having the best day possible!

Oh, PS - I'm 51, so Tim, you aren't the youngster any more!!

Hi Tim, emoticon to the team!

This is a first, a guy on the team, but there are no rules against it. I am not opposed to a rooster in the hen house and perhaps we will gain a different perspective on things.

We are a group of supportive gals that have built strong friendships and are here to help each other through good times and bad.
We are an older group, as well, so you would be the youngster. emoticon

Common ground is that we are all trying to become healthier and keep a cheerful attitude going.

Life happens and weight tends to creep up.
I gained 30 plus pounds after my oldest son died in 2014. I have lost 16 of it, this year, slowly it is coming off.
I'm Chris, from Virginia and a horticulturalist, by trade.

I am looking forward to getting to know you.

I don't see any other male members so far... is this a woman only Group? emoticon

I am Tim, from Texas, 52 years old and retired to the Philippines. I am a disabled vet, and was a single dad for 16 years. After the kids moved out I sold my house, gave away my car, and quit my job - at 48. Then I moved to a rice field in the Philippines. Been here almost 4 years, been married 2 years. Over the last couple decades I let myself put on a bit of weight.

I got up to 115 kilos and decided enough was enough. So far I have lost almost10 kilos in just over 2 months. Mostly I just track my food, and take walks. I try for 3-6 Km a day. Some days I get in a couple walks... weather permitting. My calorie goal is around 1,500 a day.

Welcome to the team Elizabeth. You'll certainly find new friends when you come on our chat thread. Supportive, encouraging, we share our days and parts of our lives. A very caring group of ladies here.

Being in weight maintenance must be wonderful! I've been trying to reach my goal for ages but never seem to get there. You'll be a real inspiration for me!

Looking forward to 'meeting' you Elizabeth, come on the chat thread and meet friends!

Hello, team. I am Elizabeth and, as my Spark name alludes, I live in Florida's capital city of Tallahassee. I've been retired from the paying workforce for six months now, have been married to my one-and-only for 40 years (and two weeks!) and all our children have paws - presently 3 dachshunds and a sweet kitty cat.

My go-to workouts are Tai Chi, which I practice and teach, and plenty of walking. I'm trying to work strength training into my routine, also. I am healthy and in weight maintenance and try to eat "good" food. I spend most of my Sparking with team "I Matter", which I co-lead but am looking to find new friends and new perspectives.

Hello,

I am KathyB. I am a 40 something, edging towards 50.

I feel pretty good about my exercise goals and I am eating healthy. However, I feel like I could use a happiness boost.

It seems like a lot of people around me want to talk about their problems. I want to have a group of people around me I can talk about happy things with as a kind of counter to that. It is like when someone goes on about how bad their life is, it seems like it might not be appropriate to talk about how great my life is.

That is not to say that I don't have problems in my life. I would just rather talk about the good things in my life.

Hello ladies,

I am back after being gone nearly a year, and even then I didn't participate much, but I would love to change that! I need all the motivation I can get and I'd love to give some as well.

I'm 46 and live in a suburb of Detroit. I'm a single mom with a 20G, 17B and 16G. I'm a Christian woman and love the Lord. Other things I love: reading, writing, cats, flowers, birds, planners, illustrated faith, and staying home! lol I work full time for a surgeon and spend a lot of time with my family.

Since I left Spark, I gained back 39 of the 50 pounds that I had lost emoticon I'm back at square one and I have no stamina for exercise.

This was week one and I did pretty well. I rode the stationary bike at the dungeon gym (gym in the basement at my work) 3 times and I'm trying to get more steps in because I am very sedentary at work and at home.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Hope your day is blessed! Sherry

Welcom Sue, Glad to see you posting. Seems we all have some sort of health problems but keep on chugging along. :)

I love to set on my front porch and watch the birds and squrrels. Anthing thing Mother Nature puts in front of me.

Hope you have a good evening, and just jump right in. We are an active group and love to hear from everyone.

As Gloria, said, we are like a little family here, to support each other, along our way.
We all have ups and downs and it is nice to have this group of gals to count on.

emoticon on your 50 pounds lost! What an accomplishment!
I see you have your challenges ahead of you,with your various ailments, but you have your head in a good place. God is always with us.
You may wish to check out Declarations and Prayers and Devotions for Dieters as well as Fran's quotes . Always good reads.
I, myself, make a point of visiting Daily talks, at least once a day as it seems the best way to get to know each other and what we are up to.

Every once in awhile we have a monthly challenge, but they are more of the fun, kind for all levels and capabilities.

Anyway, just join in, the water is fine!

FYI. I'm Chris from Richmond, Va. Gardening is my thing, and I love to read, cook do crafts and paint, read and grow closer to the Lord. Family and heritage is important to me.
I like the simple life. emoticon

I know how being diabetic makes it hard, my husband was diabetic and had lots of problems. I'm pre-diabetic and it's important for me to lose some weight, which is difficult to do but IS do-able.

We chat a lot on the team, we don't really have challenges but come on in and talk with us?? I'm sure you'll be glad you joined, this is a Wonderful team!

Hi Team emoticon I have been on SP for some time.. I am down fifty lbs from my weight loss journey about 7 years. I would like to lose 20 more lbs, but am Type 2 diabetic and this seems to make it harder, then I get discourage and go up 2 - 5 lbs then have to lose it again !!!!!

I also have a bad back, L3,4 and 5 fusion in 2014, which worked great for a year and a half. No my L 1 and 2 are degenerating since the move and the rest don't. Have bad knees. I am a lady of faith, so I thank the Lord every morning for a new day and try to do as much as I can. I wear a One Fitbit and that helps keep me moving.

I am from Montoursville PA not far from Williamsport (home of the Little League World Series) in N Central PA. In the country, retired and love my gardening and reading on our screened porch, or watching the birds.

Glad to be on team and get to know all of you. ; - }

REMEMBER: I have had this before. I know what it tastes like, AND ITS KILLING Me ! IS IT REAL HUNGER OR HEAD & HEART HUNGER?

Hi Mary Ann
Welcome to the team. I agree with you - Irene is a wonderful lady.
You've obviously had a really hard couple of years and I'm glad you're coming through it and building up your strength again. I can identify with some of it as I had breast cancer, chemo, and radio therapy 5 years ago. In fact this time 5 years ago I was just coming to the end of my treatment - and had the all clear this summer. But it seems as if you've been through a lot worse than that.
You'll hopefully find a lot of support and encouragement on this team - it's a lovely team to be part of. I hope you find it good for you too.
God bless
Faith


I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.

Hi,
I am Mary Ann. I joined Sparkpeople a little over a year ago with the goal to lose weight, get stronger, have more energy, and to get healthy again. I was not active on the teams until after I finished radiation this past June.
I had a strong desire to join this team because of a sweet dear lady, Irene. I have a lot of respect and admiration for Irene, and we do not even know each other that well.
I am looking forward to getting to know all of you.

Hi Michelle, welcome to the team. I'm sure you're going to like it here. Come on the chat thread and talk to us, tell us a bit about yourself.

I look forward to getting to know you. We're a friendly, supportive group of ladies who seem more like next door neighbours rather than far away online friends.

Hi Positive Sparkers! I've been looking for a Team that was "positive" in nature and ran across you! I hope you don't mind that I joined you. I'm Mel, 60 years old I have 3 grown sons, 3 beautiful daughter in "loves" and they have blessed me with 12 grandchildren. DH and I live in Missouri with our 4 legged furchild SisseeLou. Here is a pic of her. She pretty much rules the roost here and is the love of our life! I LOVE to garden, sew, read and volunteer in our community as we are Lion's Club members....looking forward to meeting you, getting to know you and encouraging when I can! Thank you for having me!

Hello, I'm Paula a 49 year old married mother of two Jake 20 and Sarah 19. I've been a member of Sparkpeople since 2012 . I live in Brisbane, Queensland Australia.

I suffer from slight Osteo Arthritis of the hips and I am managing it myself taking natural supplements, try to eat healthy and when and where possible organically. I wear orthotic shoes and am generally trying to keep my weight down so as to not put less stress and load on the hip joints.

Have been off sparkpeople for about 1 year due to family issues keeping me extremely busy.

I weighed in the other day at 58.7 that is the heaviest I have ever been in my life. So I figured now is the time for me to get back with sparkpeople and shed some kilo's. I hope to get down eventually to 52 kilo's and maintain at that.

As a lot of exercise is not always easy for me with my hips (have to be careful what I do so as not to cause them any problems), I decided I should take up water walking again. (easier on the joints).

Thank you for letting me join. Have an awesome day everyone . Wishing you all lots of good luck with all your weight loss and other goals. WE CAN DO THIS!!! Take care emoticon

emoticon again, Sharon! I love South Beach and had good success in the past, with it.
The food is wonderful and gets you feeling good, in a jiffy.
I actually plan on doing this, in the near future. Just need to watch my budget and eat what I have, for a bit.

You sound like you have a winning attitude and I think you will add a great spark to the rest of us!

We hope you find some motivation from us, as well! ALl different, but with the same goal of getting healthier. emoticon

My name is Sharon, I am a continuing member of Spark People! I have not posted in a long time and I am basically starting over since I gained about 12 lbs. over the holidays. I am using the South Beach program since that is what my Dr. highly recommends for me. I am doing their Phase One this week and doing very well this week. I have lost 5 lbs. in 4 days. This is due to a lot of fluid gain which I tend to do when I am not eating correctly. I will be on Phase One for a total of 2 weeks and then switch to Phase II for a couple of weeks. Then I use Spark People's Spark Solution diet with a few minor changes to keep me in line.

I am looking forward to getting to know some of you again and also those who are new this go round!

I am 70 years old and have a wonderful supportive husband. We have been married nearly 10 years now and we are still on our honeymoon! I have 6 children (3 his, 3 mine, but all of them are ours!), we have 9 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren and 1 on the way!

I really hope to finally get all of this weight off this time. I had a stroke in 2008 with no residual effects, I have high blood pressure that I am working to control, I am pre-diabetic which is under control. I am going to work to start eliminating these from my list!

I hope I will be an encouragement to all of you!

Your friend,
Sharon

P.S. For those of you who do not already know me, my screen name is my husband's pet name for me and
Angel is our spoiled cat!

Hello everyone. I used to belong to this team known as johglo2011. I was off of sparkpeople for quite some time and unfortunately gained my weight back, so here I am again. Decided to completely start fresh. Into day 3 and doing well. Thanks for the welcome back. :)

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.
