Hey Everyone! I'm Melissa, I'm 29 and I've been on and off the wagon more times than I can count. I'm looking for a way to stay motivated to keep it off. I've been active on Spark since August 2010 and within a year I managed to lose 50 pounds. Since I hit the 50 pound loss mark, I plateaued, and then the frustrations of not losing made me gain. In the last 9 months I gained back about 30 pounds of the 50 that I lost. So now I'm back, trying to lose the 30 I gained. . .and then 50 more. It's a lot of weight to lose, but I'm ready.

Hey guys!! I'm Catherine. I'm single, have a dog and a desk job and two roommates that love to cook delicious, but not so healthy food. I have been on SP for a couple years now. Last year I lost 70ish lbs, and this year has been a giant plateau, with a little bit of gaining lately. Ugh. I'm working on getting back on track. I have at least 80 more lbs to lose, and we'll take it from there, once I get to that point. I guess that's all for now, but I'm looking forward to getting to know you guys!

Hey there! My name is Reyanne. I'm 25 and work is my life at the moment. I want to lose about 40 pounds to get to my goal. I have been heavy and yo-yoed most of my adult life but I'm done with that. I need to focus on me!
Hey there! I'm Tricia and I live in Va. I'm 33, married with two girls and a dog. I'm a Conservation Specialist which my job takes me outside quite often. I have yo-yoed up and down for years but the last five I feel have been out of control. I have 80 pounds I want to be rid of and motivation to exercise is my biggest challenge. I know what to do, it's just doing it that I have issues with.
Glad to be here and see you guys on the message boards! Whoo hoo! We can stay Sparked!!!!!!!!

HI Everyone! My name is Kayla. I started this group so that I can stay in touch with people and stay motivated to do what I need to do to get where I want to be.
I'm 26 years old. I'm married and have one dog and no children. I'm an office manager and I sit down pretty much all day. I have about 60ish pounds to be at my goal weight. I have only been heavy since the end of highschool due to bad choices and lifestyle changes. I am determined to change that tho. I cant wait to get to know all of you!
