I think you are better off in an enviornment you can control... Keep your eyes pealed... there has to be someone out there walking! In the meantime, we will support you! There is lots of people around here who are in similar situations.
Hang in there! emoticon

Hello!!
My name is Heather, I'm 25 going on 26 this June 17th.
I have been up and down with my weight the past few months. I'm at 225 and would like to be 195 right now. My dream goal is 175. I was working a Walgreens for the almost 4 years and really packed on the ponds eating pastries they sold. So I quit because I would have been 300lbs by now hah! My main obstacles remain= my mind and my lazyness.

My support system consists of my husband Ben, and I do not know ANYONE around where I live...which means I have no friends, ouch! It's frustrating because I never see anyone outside going on walks when I go for mine, so thus I meet no one.

You should probably put your bandit hat on now. Personally, I- I don't have one, but I modified this tube sock.~Ash Fox

Greetings, folks. Name's Partha, and this is the first time I've dipped a toe into this particular message board. Though, I have been interacting with at least one of our class (Hi Yoitle!), and look forward to hearing about others who've been around for three months and change, and what might be working for you.

Hi everyone!

I'm ML from Southern California. I joined Spark originally on 1/1/2009 hence my name ... the weight was supposed to be Gone in 2009. Didn't make it ... lost 50 over the next 18 months and then put 20 back on over the next year. Never really quit checking in every once in a while so getting back on board was always planned but on 10/1/11 I decided it was time. My original team has mostly found new homes elsewhere so I'm looking for that rush of excitement that comes with everyone that's new! Hope you don't mind my joining you! I'm going to do it this time. In Oct 2012 we'll celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary on a cruise with our two kids (now 8/9) so I want to look AWESOME for that cruise!

ML in CA

May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

Started: 01/01/09 80 lbs to lose

Hi I'm Jo from Bonnie Scotland....

I did spark people in the past and then got nasty depression and it didn't matter what I did I just couldn't put the few pounds I needed to be healthy back on. So then a year ago (just under) my pdoc put me on a weight gaining anti depressant and now I've put on too much.!!!

So here to lose about 40lbs or so having put on about 50 in the last year....

Jo

Hi, my name is Brenda. Im mother of 5 with only one teenager still at home. I have a german shepherd names Sheeba, and work a full time job out of the home. Ive made a lot of excuses for not getting busy on my weight loss and decided about 2 weeks ago that excuses didnt work anymore. I just turned 46 in September, and while that is not old, I want to lose the extra weight before I go any further. I lost 20 lbs 14 thru weight watchers, 6 on my own. Ive kept it off with just a lb coming back then gone for about 6 months now. I was excited how much better I looked after the 20 that I got lazy. Now that Im settled in to this life style its time to take it up a notch, so here I am!

Hi Everyone,

I'm so happy to have found SparkPeople! I joined last Wednesday, but it has taken me a few days to get the hang of the website. I live in California and just made a major career change this summer. I went from a 20-year career as an elementary teacher to a fabulous training program to become a financial advisor. I'm loving it, except for the sitting-at-a-desk all day part. I was already gaining weight before the new job, but it's only getting worse. I'm excited to make some changes!

Good luck to all of us,
Maggie

Hi. My name is Carie and I'm 36. I need to lose 40 pounds but I'm a chicken about it. I have lost 30 pounds in two years time, but this last year I have stayed in the same 5 pound range because I sabotage myself. I'm not sure why. Seeing all of the posts here have helped me want to go the rest of the way though.
I live in Utah and have four kids and a hubby.

Hey everyone! My name is Caitlin from Indianapolis. I joined Sparkpeople Tuesday and I am excited to be a part of something so amazing. I'm 23 and weigh 298 (cringe) and I want nothing to do with that number. My goal is to lose 138 pounds in 365 days. I have too much to live for. I'm taking my life back, I'm the one in control now! I have a trainer I am working with and he suggested Sparkpeople so I'm here, ready to support and be supported. We can do this guys!

Hey all!

I'm nineteen and a college sophomore. I've been a lacto-ovo vegetarian for two years and I love it. I've been struggling with my weight for the last couple of years, but I'm finally ready to eliminate that negative mind set and become a more healthy, positive person.

Hi All.

My name is Suzanne. I am 41 years old and live in Connecticut USA. I am married, work full time (teaching computer application to adults) and have been on SparkPeople in the past. (I was trying to think back based on where I was living - thinking it was 2004?)

For hobbies - I spend too much time on the computer, love to read, play bassoon and english handbells, and collect postcards.

Since one of our "to-know-you" things talks about why are you here, weight loss goals, etc - I'll just put that information in that thead.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone and helping those as I can.

Suzanne

Hello Everyone! I am a 26 year old wife and mother, my daughter is 3 and just recently diagnosed with autism. I've gained quite a bit of weight over the last 5 years and would really like to focus on getting healthy so I can keep up with my little girl and also start thinking about having more kids in the future.

Hello all! I'm Laurel and this is the second time I've started the SP program. I have managed to lose some of my weight in the meantime, but I'd like to lose another 20 lbs by the first of the year. Mostly, I'm here for encouragement on my fitness and healthy living goals.

Hi, my name is MADELEINE. I am 54 and I will be a grandmother for the first time next April. I live in Quebec city and I speak French. So excuse my mistakes when using English.

I lost 40 pounds since the beginning of this year. I read The SPARK book this summer and I wonder if I could get some more support to keep losing fat in joining this team.

Hi all!
I'm a 29 yr old, married, cosmetologist/jewelry designer/hair bow creator, living in NE Tennessee.
I am obese, but focusing on the (huge amount of) pounds to lose has not worked for me in the past, so this time I'm focusing on getting healthy! (Exercise, eating right, etc.)

Hello Team!!! I am a little overwhelmed with the site. I have been reading different articles- boy there are a lot. I am always hungry so I am always eating. I had surgery in December which left me inactive for months and I gained a lot of weight. I tried other diets over the summer til now to lose weight and nothing helped. I am hoping this site will give me the kick in the butt I need to refocus and get healthy again! I have another surgery in October, so I will again be inactive for a bit, but hoping this site can keep me from gaining more weight!! keeping the fingers crossed I can do this!!!

The only time wasted is time not spent with my horse!

Hi all,

My name is Merissa and I am brand new to SparkPeople.
I'm mid-30's have three kiddos (5, 4, and 3 years old) and want desperately to drop 48 pounds, give or take a pound.

I work as a felony prosecutor, so lots of stress, and fluctuating hours. I'm a stress eater, and not real good at making time to eat right or exercise, with the end result being that I feel ancient and am almost 50 pounds heavier than I should be.

I am ready to make some changes in order to feel better, be healthier and have clothes that fit. Seriously, clothes that fit is a joy not to be underestimated...

My long term goals are:
1.) to eat (and drink) right (so food tracking, calorie counting and better choices are necessary),
2.) to exercise more (I am going to start the c25k next week after my super sports bra comes in, but will also do yoga for the flexibility and stress relief.) I started the yoga last week and it has been really good so far.
3.) to insist on time to take care of myself (although I am generally the person most guilty of not allowing this to happen.)
4.) Wear sunscreen every day.
5.) To lose 48 pounds at about a pound and a half a week.

This team looks like a wonderful supportive place to work toward my goals, and to support others in their journey. Thanks for having me.
Merissa

Hey everyone!

I currently live in Eastern Ontario, approx 2 hour drive from Ottawa. However, I am originally from Nova Scotia and that is where my heart truly is.

I am a SAHM and proud Army wife. I have approx 60 pounds to shed. I'd like to have them gone by the long weekend in May as we have a wedding to go to and I want to look FABULOUS!

I'll look FABULOUS either way, but I also plan on doing another Half Marathon around that time and I want to RUN it this time...and I know that my body will have an easier time doing that if I'm 60 pounds lighter.

Each and every moment has infinite potential and infinite energy, so approach life one moment at a time.

I am a fledgling artist. You can view my paintings here:

I am really ready to release this weight. I need to lose 100 pounds and am diabetic. My goal is to lose it in a healthy and safe way. I am 62 years old, but still in the battle, now I want to win the war. Thanks for all the support and I hope to be supportive to others.

Hello :) My name is Alexandra
I'm new to spark but not the weight loss yo-yo. Im here to be dedicated, lose weight and get healthy and meet new people in doing so. Support and Accountability are the two things I seem to have issues with.

Hopefully from all I hear I'll not have a problem with finding support :)
Looking forward to getting to know you!

Losing weight is not Hocus Pocus...it's hard work and goals are reachable

Hello Everyone!
I'm 28 years old, and over the last 3 years (even though they've been the happiest of my life) I've steadily gained about 50lbs--and I need to get it off. My husband and I want to start a family in the next year or so, and I want to be a healthy mom. And--I want to not be disgusted when I look at myself! Let's support each other! NOTHING is impossible!

Hi. My name is Monica and I will 25 on Wednesday, Sept 28th. As of now, I weigh 330 lbs and would like to weigh 160 lbs. The smallest I've ever been in my life! I need to lose 160 lbs to reach this goal. Right now, my smaller goals are to lose 30 lbs by Jan 1st and 60 lbs by April 1st. I'd also love to throw in a 5k race somewhere in there. I need all the support I can get guys. This is the first time I've begun to make a REAL conscious effort to lose weight. Please add me!

Hey everyone! My name is Teresa, I am 27 years old and I just moved to Laramie Wyoming with my boyfriend. With the struggle and stress of the move I gained quite a bit of weight. I have my goal set to lose 50 pounds and the support and motivation found from this site will be great to keep me on track!

I live in Fukuoka City in southern Japan. I first lived in Tokyo 25 years ago, and later lived in Wakayama-ken at an onsen resort with my Japanese husband when my first son was newborn. I found a Living in Japan Spark Team, but it's largely inactive.

The future starts now.

Hi I am new and would love to join and get support with this team! I need to lose about 60-70 pounds, one day at a time, and learn to be more loving to myself in the process. If there is someone out there who would like to be a support person, I would love that too. Grateful to be here!!

Hello, I'm an American Mom in Japan. Nice to see someone from Down Under in this SP Class. I'm struggling to figure out how to log food since almost none of it is available in the USA. This is going to take some creative thinking. Look forward to reading what everyone is up to.

The future starts now.

Hi, my name is Lea, and I have just joined Spark People.I will be 58 on October 14, and after months of telling myself I will do better tomorrow, the day and time has come when I have finally done something more than make promises to myself.

I'm single, I live in rural Australia, in a medium sized town, I am almost finished an Aged Care course, I'm a volunteer at our local nursing home, and would love to be able to grow my own vegetables. So far I have some seedlings in plant pots, but that's it. Hopefully if I am eating right, getting some exercise each day, I will have more energy and motivation to finally get that vegetable garden set up and growing.

I deserve to be healthy and happy, and no one can do that for me but myself!
