Rejoined ( new user name) after months gone....

I'm a 57 year old woman that has a total of 83 lbs to lose to reach a decent weight where I can possibly get off of blood pressure pills and also not hurt so much from RA of the spine. I've been told by my doctor that the less extra weight I'm carrying the less stress there will be on my joints. I don't expect to lose it fast. It took me 8 years to put on all the weight. My goal is to drop 2 lbs every month and keep it off til I reach my 83 lb goal.
I am married to Bob and he's just had to get a pacemaker/defibrullator in March 2013, and is still adjusting to having a very weak heart (20% heart strength), so I tend to stress over his health a lot, and when I'm stressing out, I tend to eat more than I should. So I will be working on making healthier food choices over time.

Hello Everyone! My name is Michelle. Recently moved back home to California from Indiana. I'm 212lbs currently and looking to lose around 75lbs in the next year. I received my spark tracker on Friday and I'm really excited about it. I'm always looking for new friends that are positive and motivational to help keep me on track along the way.

Hi there, I love SP and the supportive community here, so I'm happy to be part of this team. I'm in the UK, near the south coast. It's fantastic walking country so I'm out and about a lot. I am in my early 50's and it's harder to lose the weight than it used to be! But I'm getting there. With Christmas coming up I'm keen to put good habits in place before the food onslaught begins!

Hi, I'm coming back after a long absence. It's time that I realize that this is a journey without a true destination. This journey will help us get healthier and help us lose weight ... but i will always be fighting to keep it off. So here is to learning to love the journey and not focus so much on the destination.

I am 40 years old and a mother to 3 beautiful girls. I want to set a healthy example for them.

Starting weight: 183..48 to lose..10/19

I'm learning to make healthy changes to my diet and exercise routine that I can live with forever.
In my 30's I had a 24" waist and weighed 119 lbs. I'm 5'9" tall. Much too thin for my height plus I'm medium boned. It was determined a healthy weight for me would be about 140-150 lbs, which I stayed at for over 15 years. But now in my mid 50's I've gained 100 lbs more than I should be, but I know my activity level is nowhere what it was back 15 years ago. Not even 10 years ago. And I have a few health issues now that make just getting down about 50 lbs, what I need to be shooting for. I just want to be able to move with ease and not have to depend on someone else to help me do things.

My name is Connie and my goal is to lose 50 lbs and get off high blood pressure pills

Hi, I rejoined spark a few months or so ago with the user name chef, but am not a chef, just somebody who wants to cook more at home and came back on spark to look for recipes. Since then I've mostly blogged and searched for teams lol.

I've been on the site a few different times as I am quite weight conscious, having once (a long time ago) weighed more than 100 pounds than I do now. I consider myself a weight maintainer but that entails regains, relosses and sometimes a shift in perspective as to where I actually want to be weight wise. Currently I am dealing with some pesky regain pounds and trying very hard to reach my current IDEAL WEIGHT of 125 by December 30.

Lol, more than you probably wanted to know but hello! :wave:

My name is Lisa (nickname is Kitten due to the fact I REALLY love Hello Kitty). I am in my middle/upper 30's, married for 15yrs to a wonderful supportive man that I met while in the Army. I have two beautiful children, a Daughter, just turned 13 and a Son who is 11. They are my entire world, I don’t have any "outside" friends to speak of and family, well there is big issues there. I have been on Spark for over 5yrs on and off, mostly off the last 3yrs. My first year I went from 180 to 135 (size 20W to 8) and I loved it, felt healthy even though according to the BMI I was still "fat" ...I am only 5ft tall, disadvantages of being short, ugh. Then life happened. I hit rock bottom with depression. By Oct 2008 I did the unthinkable and went back home, which I had promised myself when I left I would NEVER go back. So we left Oklahoma and went to Wisconsin. We ended up living with my parents 11months, however about 8 months into that my mother and I had a falling out, real bad. I started having panic attacks and wasn’t able to sleep, I would go days without being able to go or stay asleep. We moved again in Aug 09, just across town, so it wasn’t much better. We lived in such a small town everyone knew what everyone else was doing. My Dr suggested that I try to go back to work in an attempt to reverse my severe social anxiety and depression. Well it back fired, I found work in Feb 2010 and had to stop by Aug 2010. Things just went from bad to worse. By this time Sept 2010 I reached my heaviest weight EVER, including pregnancy weights, 186. I was on medications for Manic Depression, severe anxiety, CFS, Restless leg syndrome and developed Fibromyalgia. By Feb 2011 I was on disability and would only leave the house when absolutely necessary about once a month or less. March of 2011 I decided I needed a program to keep me on track so I started P90X which I completed in 113 days (normally takes 90 but I had to take it a lot slower due to my body hating me). After I finished in July I for some reason hit rock bottom again and haven't been able to pull myself up since. In Dec my DH's work contract ended and has been without work since. We have moved again, from Wisconsin to Texas, to be closer to his family and get me out of the toxic location(even my DR said I wouldn’t even have a hope of getting better until I moved FAR away). We have been in TX for a little over 2 1/2 months now and I am still in a "funk". I cant seem to get and stay started. It seemed as if every friend I had made in the last 5yrs disappeared and I was doing this alone. I am usually the one everyone turned to when they needed help and now that I FINALLY admit that I need that help returned no one is there. So I deleted my previous account and now am started fresh with EVERYTHING. I need some sort of kick start and I just have to find the right leg to give it to me.

If I get to wordy just let me know to "shut it" cause I can go when I get going. Oh and if I ramble I am sorry now, my brain gets foggy at times and may seem like it makes sense but I go back later and read and sounds awful...lol. Hope I am not scaring anyone from getting to know me and I would love to get to know each of you better .

Hello everyone. I found this team through Abby's Spark Page and I can see by the intros here that I have a lot in common with a lot of members!

A little about evwings is about all I can do right now. Supper will soon be upon us and I don't dare miss that! I joined Spark in 2008. but didn't do much with it. I tried again in April 2010. I made a page and joined a team or two, but once more, I didn't so much. At that point I was at 255. I came back in August of 2010 determined to make it work this time. I was at 245. Then in October I had my yearly mammogram and got called back. I had a lumpectomy in November. The Tuesday before Thanksgiving I got the news - it was positive. I had to have more surgery and found it hadn't gone further. Rather than a mastectomy, I opted to have radiation and chemo. At that point my bra size was 50DD and both my surgeon and I felt I would have a difficult time healing because of my size, thus my decision. In January I started radiation treatments. My genetic markers came back so good I had my chemo by pill form. I finished my treatments the 22nd of March and had lost 9.5 pounds during that time. When I went back for my 6 weeks check up, my radiation oncologist saw something on my right tonsil he didn't like. Long story short - it too was cancer. Although not common, it is aggressive. Once more, rather than surgery I opted for radiation and chemo. It was contained to the one spot, but I had to start treatment right away. First I had to have a lot of teeth pulled. I should have had them all taken out, but I had as many as I could afford with no dental insurance and all the dentists wanting their money up front - no payment plans! I started treatment in June of 2011. This time I had to have the chemo via IV. I was sick and weak most of the time. I finished all treatment in August, but I was really ill. I was also at 215, but lost to 200 with 2 weeks. I had a feeding tube, but had it removed when all my problems started. In and out of the hospital until just before Christmas, the problem was finally resolved. and in January I started PT and OT so I could finally walk again. Until then I was so weak, I couldn't make it from one end of our home to the other without having to stop. I can't tell you how many falls I had, even using a walker. Times changed and I got stronger and back to exercising. It was 5 minutes the first two weeks then 10, then 15, until I get between 90 and 120 a day at this point! I reached my final goal about 8 weeks ago and that is 120. Since finishing my treatments, I have had to visit my ENT every four months and my oncologist every four months. That is because tonsil cancer often returns and if it isn't caught in time, it can be fatal within 6 weeks. The survival rate at 5 years is 50%. Because of that and my age (65) I find everything immediate, including writing.

I am always around to help anyone who needs it. Sometimes it encourages just to say hello!

Hi all. My name is Karl and I've been Sparking since last September. I joined this team on the advice of one of my Sparkfriends who is also a team member. Great to be here. I think this will become one of my "go to" teams. From what I've heard, it should be just what I'm looking for.

Hi everyone, my name is Liz and I just joined the team... and am happy to be here emoticon

I literally did a search in teams for the word "supportive" as I feel that is what I need most and would like to give others - support on the journey. I find challenges and a lot of people to keep up with doesn't work well for me at all but I'm trying to find my way on this path and am having a bit of a hard time and I guess it would be nice not to have to do this alone...

so happy to be here like I said and look forward to getting to know you guys better!

Much love, Liz

Hi all! I'm Kelsey and I'm excited to be a part of such a supportive team (and come on, who doesn't love the nickname Sparklers?!?) I live in CO and although I've been an on again off again Sparker before, I have only been a part of the community for a month. It was a pretty stellar month and other than a little travel fitness failure, I think I'm on the right path. I'm terribly afraid that I'll start slipping now that the initial motivation and time is passing. I joined this team to keep everything fresh and I look forward to doing the same for others! Here's to another stellar month!!

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! My name is Alexia and I am just emerging from a long, sedentary depression and I am finally off the couch and working towards being more active and motivated. I am trying to surround myself with positive and motivated people. This seemed a good place to start! emoticon

Hey everybody! :)

My name's Allison, i'm 22 and i'm a college student (currently on Summer break). I've struggled my entire life with my weight and last summer was the time i chose to take control of that. Now i'm almost 40 pounds lighter and still going down. Since i've been home, it's definitely been hard because of all the temptations and junk going on with my family but i'm trying to push through. Like many that have posted before me, i'm in the process of changing the way i think, mentally, as well as what i do physically. I recently started walking around my apartment complex, which is around 2 miles, and added in jogging just to see how long/far i could go. The results amazed me and i can't believe what i can do and i just feel awesome every time i get done. I'm not sure how often i'll do this but i'm definitely going to continue! :)

Came across this team on a friends page, so i hope i get lots of new friends and support! Let me know if y'all (yes i'm southern :P) add me as a friend and i'll add you back! :D

Allison

♫ So i won't give up...no i won't break down...sooner than it seems life turns around...and i will be strong even if it all goes wrong...when i'm standin in the dark i'll still believe...someone's watching over me... ♫ ♥

Hello! My name is Misty. I'm 35 years old. I'm a soon to be divorced mother of two (10 year old son and 7 year old daughter). In three days I will be celebrating the 1 year annivesary of the day I decided to take control of my life. I had decided that I was unhappy with who I was and what I had become. I was just a few lbs shy of 200 lbs (I'm only 5 ft 3 in.). I'm now 60 lbs lighter. I exercise daily. Joined the gym. My most recent accomplishment...I ran a 5K! The whole thing without stopping! 31.55. Even with these accomplishments I still struggle. I struggle with body image issues (seems once obese i'll always seem myself as obese). I'm trying now to be more positive in my thinking!

Hello all! I'm Ananda from Brazil, I'm turning 30 next week and have lost about 20 lbs since I joined SP in January. I wish us all the best of luck with reaching our goals. Please feel free to add me and I'll add you back... Not for popularity purposes, but because my SP friends are making a huge difference on my success. I have never lost this amount of weight within this time frame so I definitely credit the support I get here as the #1 reason for making it happen. emoticon emoticon

hello everybody, it's just amazing how this group has grown. just a few weeks ago (well, months?) there were only about nine people in the group. wow! i scrolled down and noticed i haven't even introduced myself here, shame on me!
i'm rosie, 58, living in germany. have been with sparks for just over a year now and by following the great advice on the site have managed to knock off over 50 lbs. furthermore, two weeks ago i started teaching ballet again after many years' break, my body screamed 'stop this madness', but anyone with a dance virus will know how that played out. so, back in the saddle, thanks to spark!
and big thanks to blue and amanda for keeping this group up and running. you're the greatest!

Hi! emoticon

My name is Christine and I'm a 26 year old girl from Germany (just turned 26 last week).

I've been on quite a journey over the last years. I'm changing a lot of things in my life and one of them is getting healthier and losing weight. I started with SP last year, but fall off the wagon a couple months later. I'm back on track now and it's a rollercoaster ride, but I really want to hold on.
Looking forward to meeting all of you! emoticon

That sounds great because you can have snacks and control the portions.
Your weight loss sounds realistic and I hope to have similar results soon. I wouldn't mind losing 5 lbs a month at all! emoticon

Well, for me I don't eat "everything" - though I also don't have anything that I deny myself.


While gaining weight, I used to eat really absurd. I would have a Tall Hot Chocolate and two pastries in the morning, pick up a couple of king-sized candy bars for a snack, go through a pack of gum a day, get footlong subs and chips and 3 cookies for lunch or a big to-go container of nachos that probably could have served 4+ people, then come home and make a Pasta-Roni for dinner to which I added tuna and peas and carrots, then ate it all (2.5+ servings), chase all that with a large mug of milk or chocolate milk (probably 32 oz mug). If I had to walk to the local store for milk, odds were I'd pick up Chips Ahoy or Oreos and come back to eat half of that in one sitting along with another full mug of milk.

That even sounds pretty insane writing it down, but that wasn't entirely unusual.

Now? Any one of those items are perfectly fine for me to eat, but:

1) I would only have one, or two at most, in a day
2) I would know and apply serving sizes - or even try half a serving
3) I track it, often early in the day or the day before, to make sure I can fit it in

So if I decided that I really wanted one of those candy bars, I'd look at today and say it won't fit so we'll schedule it in tomorrow. Then I'd find out how many calories are in the regular size (1 serving) version and make sure I otherwise eat much healthier foods (salad with lean meat for dinner) than usual. Maybe I'd only have one square of the chocolate bar - and do so over several days for a couple week - allowing me to eat more normally otherwise during the day. That works for me because I don't have issues with bingeing or eating just to eat.

I'm losing at a reasonable rate. (I aim for about 5 pounds per month, but seem to be losing more than that - possibly because I'm more active than I account for.)

Thank you!So how has that worked for you?I mean I do try to avoid unhealthy food, but I can't avoid it completely. Is it possible to lose weight when eating everything?It probably is, but at a slower rate.

Sounds like you have very reasonable plans for the changes you'd like to make. I do the same thing - eat "everything" but in normal portions.

Hi, fellow Sparklers!My name is Selina, I'm 26 years old and I come from Croatia (in Europe). I'm a stay-at-home mom to a beautiful baby girl.

The weight has been problem for a long time, but I've never been this overweight. I'd like to eat everything but in normal portions, stop the binging and overeating at night, exercise regularly and establish healthy habits that will stick for life.

I like SP a lot, but I haven't really managed to find the daily support I'm looking for. There are a lot of wonderful people, groups and pages here on SP, but I would really like to meet people who come here daily, get to know each other and support each other on a daily basis. This team seems amazing! I love the idea behind this team's name and I'm looking forward to meeting you, chatting and motivating each other.

If I can ever help you, give support in any form, just send me a mail or stop by my Spark page. I can't wait to lose weight with you! emoticon

Hi! I'm Betsy, and I first joined SparkPeople in 2008. It was short lived, and I've been on a weight roller coaster (mostly going up) ever since. I revisited SP last week, and this time I totally fell in love with it. I have a ton of fun blogging, and I really enjoy reading other members' blogs. It helps to comment and be commented on...it's nice to know someone is out there who "gets it". You can read more about me on my SparkPage, so please stop by sometime.

I'm looking forward to being a part of this group and supporting everyone else on this journey - thanks for being here! emoticon

Hi, I'm Sonia, and I've been a Spark Member since 2006 (under a different user name.) I opened a new account last November -- Mommy_Nonny. My 3 year-old son calls me "Nonny," and I wanted to to make my Spark name just as special as he makes me feel. emoticon

I reached my highest weight of 230 pounds in January of 2005. In the past 7 years, I have weighed between 159 and 180 pounds. That means I have officially kept the first 50 pounds OFF for good! As of today, I'm back at 180. I weighed 160 pounds about a year ago, so I am pretty bummed that 2011 meant a 20 pound weight gain for me.

I'm going to track my weight daily again starting today. On Saturday, February 25th, I'm going to put my weight tracker back on my Spark Page. I chose that date because the swimming pool at my apartment complex will open on Friday, May 25th. My goal is to lose 15 pounds between 2/25 and 5/25 -- AND to feel confident in a swim suit on Memorial Day weekend.

I know I can do this! I just have to Spark daily and track my progress!! emoticon

Hello to all, old and new to the Team. I have been with Spark since 2008 working the plan and having some great successes and some not so great successes. I wiped my slate clean at the end of 2011 and began a fresh start in 2012 looking for Teams that offer support, motivation and over-all a team that is involved with it's other team members, and are not afraid to give a fellow team member a verbial "kick in the butt" when they need it.

To begin, my name is Deb, my Sparkfriends call me Tangy. I am 53 years young, mother and wife. Looking to improve my health and make it through my 90's emoticon - LOL. I want to stop playing the yo-yo game with the scale and get serious about loosing the extra 50 lbs I've packed on. I'm tired of procrastinating and not being able to stay motivated. This is my year. I can do this and I hope we do this together!!

Hey everyone! I love the idea of a supportive, active group emoticon . I am a 48 yr old teacher of at risk 9th and 10th graders. During winter break I made the decision that I needed to make a shift in my world by adding exercise in. Luckily I have another teacher friend who joined the health club with me. We've committed to going to water aerobics together and have been really enjoying it.

Now this week I started a biggest loser contest at the gym. I really want to make a shift to better movement and health. We are tracking our food and exercise on Spark People. I am excited to find friends to help support this new part of my life!

Hi I am Don and new here and I am committed to losing 100+ pounds and to eventually work my way up to run a 5k. I am trying to live life in a way that I can look back on it in 50 years and say "I have really lived” As the line says in Shawshank Redemption, "You got to get busy living or get busy dying." So losing weight and living a healty life style for me right now is a big thing to me to be able to really live. I am tired and overwhelmed at being overweight and being hindered by it. So I joined Spark people to seek out a bold future with others on this journey.

"It ain't about how hard you hit, it's about how you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. Get up! "

I just joined yesterday. I'm 42, looking to gain a healthier lifestyle. And the fact that my doctor gave me a shot in the butt wake up call helps too. lol
I'm looking forward to getting to know people and exploring this site.

Hi, my name is Olivia! I live in Florida, born and raised! I can be very dedicated but am also discouraged easily, so I think this will be a great team for me to become involved in. I look forward to reaching goals with you all emoticon

I'm Becky, even tho my "name" on Sparks is Mrs. Tejano which means Mrs. Texan in Spanish. I've been a Sparker for a long time, but I have challenges that cause me to stumble ... lots, even though I focus on eating healthy, moving my body as much as I can and thinking positively. I just know I thrive on positive reinforcement, so the title of this team and the picture caught my eye, and I just HAD to join and be a part of this motivating and supportive team!

What are my challenges? I have had Multiples Sclerosis for 25 years. I'm 53, but inside I really feel like I'm about 30. If you'd see me, other than hot lifting my left leg as high as my right, you'd never know I had MS or anything else. But, that is what causes me to avoid cardio. I love cooking healthy, eating fresh, and since I live in Florida, I can eat "clean" all the time. Oh! One more thing ..... I'm a Christian prayer warrior and I know that is what I was born for ... to pray for others. I hope that doesn't offend anyone, but I know He's got a habit of answering the prayers I send to Him.

Hugs, Becky

I'm KJ, I've been an SP member for several years now. My initial weightloss journey is completed ('08) and now I have short-term goals I work on to maintain or accomplish my fitness goals.

If you're a type-II diabetic friend me and I'll tell you my tale of how I kicked the ShXT out of diabetes. I am med free and though I will forever have this epic battle of Good (me) vs Evil (diabetes).

USING SP TO HELP YOU KEEP TRACK OF WEIGHT LOSs, CALORIE INTAKE AND EXERCISE "IS" THE SHORTCUT!!!!!!
