Hey all, quick intro.

I want to be a stronger cyclist and a good model and life skills mentor for my wife and kids. I want to feel strong and healthy.

My current goal is to reach a goal weight of 150lbs without a loss of muscle or strength by September 2013, for the Dirty Dozen race.

Riding an unsupported 200K (solo 124.274 miles) by the end of May 2013. - .

I'll revisit new goals once I reach these.

My wife and I are Returned Peace Corps Volunteers who served in the Republic of South Africa.

Pain is weakness leaving the body.

How do you eat an elephant?

I will not fail.

hey my name is laura. in the past i lost about 20 pounds and when I started the divorce i ended up gaining all the weight back and then some. This got me more depressed. I want to have a new start and lose weight. When the divorced started i felt like i lost everything especially my friends since I moved out of state. I have not met anyone new here since my schedule is opposite as most people.

My name is Veronica and I am new to the team. I live in GA. I have 3 teenage children and I am happily married to my high school sweetheart. I am eager to jump right in and learn as much as I can. I am not new to Sparkpeople. I decided to delete my old account and start new. I am vowing to myself dedicating myself to this site for the last time.
I've lost a little over 18 lbs since January. I had my gallbladder removed on January 29th and I have been losing or maintaining each week since then. I have so much more energy since my gallbladder has been removed. I am ready to cheer my fellow sparkers on and get the support that I need to reach my goals. Please feel free to add me as your friend.

Have a great day!

~Veronica~

Hello everyone,
My name is shy :D I am still pretty new to the message boards and not quite sure what i am doing, but my determation is very strong these days, I have tried and tried to lose weight with little success but now i have to lose weight to save myself i recently found out that my back is worse then was expected and the doctors want to do surgery. I have never been so determined in my life I do not want back surgery I want to lose weight first and see if this will help with out having them cut open my back. I came to the message boards for some support with my weight loss journey and some encouragement along the way. im looking forward to getting to know people and making online friends to help and for them to help me. EXCITED CANT WAIT :D

"When you have a sense of your own identity and a vision of where you want to go in your life, you then have the basis for reaching out to the world and going after your dreams for a better life."

If you are anything like me, youíve been trying to find the perfect way to lose weight! Youíve probably tried the Atkinís Diet, the South Beach Diet, and just tried to eat healthier and exercise more! You do a really good job the first couple of week; however, you always fall back into your ways. I know, trust me, I know. Iíve been there, done that, got the t-shirt, and ready to send it back!!

Iíve been overweight for as long as I can remember. Based on school pictures, Iíve been overweight since I was in second grade. Childhood obesity was just as big as a problem in 1988/1989 as it is today. It was probably not as hot as a topic as it is today (I sure donít have any facts to support that as I was like 7 years old)! Life at home was great growing up; however, social life not so much. I remember always being bullied and teased because of my weight. Kids can be cruel.

When I graduated high school in 1998, I weighed in at 315 pounds. Unfortunately, after the summer of 1999, I got a bad case of depression that last about six months. I wouldnít eat or do anything but lay in bed. This helped me lose a lot of weight very quickly and not in a healthy way at all. I dropped to about 240 pounds after it was all said and done with. I slowly gained that back through the years.

In 2010, I started working from home (my choice, not because my weight limited my mobility). This really caused me to balloon up. I didnít get any exercise. I would order Dominoís Pizza for lunch and Papa Johnís for dinner just so I didnít get the same pizza delivery person twice in the same day. Because of my eating habits, I swelled back up to 319.5 pounds. This was the heaviest I have ever been. I could not even sit on the couch and bend down to tie my shoes. This is when I decided it was time to make a lifestyle change. Doesnít that sound better than diet?!? Iím not on a diet, Iíve just change my lifestyle! It has become a psychological thing.

In January 2012, I joined Weight Watchers. This was the best decision I could have ever made. It is nice to go to meetings where other people face the same day-to-day struggles that you do. It is a great support group. I couldnít be happier! Iím quickly approaching my goal of 169.5 pounds. When I make it, Iíll be so excited to say that Iíve lost 150 pounds! As Iím typing this up, my best friend is sitting on my couch playing video games. He weighs in at 146.6 pounds. I look at him and think, Iím going to lose more weight than what he weighs! Iím going to lose an entire person!

If you need motivation or you are just struggling, feel free to reach out to me! Iíll do what I can to help. I want to help as many people as I can make it through this journey! It is the best decision that you could have ever made! Good luck!!!!

Hello everyone. I'm new to SP and I am looking forward to all that this community has to offer. emoticon

"Why view life as half done, when tomorrow brings so much wonder? If you're living life by the day, then you're not living life at all. Always remember that the sun is always shining, even when it's dark. Just open the window to your heart and let it in."

Hey eveyone!

I'm new to this team and quasi-new to SparkPeople.
Y'all be blessed.

Don't treat your body as a human garbage can. Know what you are putting into it. Do your own research on what you eat. Read ingredient labels. If there's junk listed in the ingredients, don't eat what's in the container. Better yet, choose food that doesn't require an ingredient label. Eat real food. Nourish your body. May Our Lord bless you most abundantly!

Hello, and thanks so much for the invite! This looks like a great place!

I'm a retired RN, I'm married to a great supportive guy who is doing this with me, we have two grown daughters and two grandsons, and we live in New Orleans. This isn't my first go 'round with losing some weight, but it's the first time I've been so determined, I think, and I've never ever had so much to lose. The scale right now is pretty horrific actually, but I'm taking it in small chunks. My grandson took a pic of me yesterday and it frightened and upset me so badly that I feel like I've been slammed into a new lifestyle change and there's no option for failure! Coupled with me feeling really poorly over the last few years due to carrying around so much excess weight... well... it's past time for me to be here, so, here I am! emoticon

I can do this.

Marj, thank you for the invite. I am also a returning Sparker. Kept gaining and and losing the same 15 to 30 lbs. so I decided to start over and reinvent myself. If I choose my name to be Muscle-Up, then I guess I am going to get into Weight Training. Yeah! emoticon

Well, let me show you two people who are my inspirations.

I am thankful that I was invited to this team. I need to keep a positive outloook and be committed to a healthier lifestyle. I live alone with my two cats and when I am home I get incredibly lazy. I am 61 and need to get fit or I might be disabled in my 70s.

I read that it is never too late to lose weight. I also am telling myself that is not too late to start living a better life.

Hi everyone, my name is Sarah. I got the invite and this seems like a pretty cool team. I'm here for my...let's just say I've been on here a few times. I've officially gained all the weight I've ever lost back emoticon but I am 2 sizes smaller then my largest pants size emoticon how that works I'm not 100% sure. I'm hoping it's because I've been lifting weights.

Anyway I'm here to get my ass in gear and with any luck shrink said ass emoticon I've started taking Alli today. I've considered it and been on it once and at the time I used it last I wasn't at a place where I could 100% into it. So I would use it then stop and then use it again. I'm hoping this time I can keep going and get some really good healthy habits going.

Hi there my name is Vanessa. I'm totally here to get myself back on track. I want to be a healthy version of me. I've been down a spiral since a little after I had my son in 2004. I'm almost 100lbs over weight and I'm always tired and never want to do anything. I'm finally feeling like I'm coming out of the funk and ready to get my body and my tummy ;) Moving.

Hi-
I am Stephanie- I am nearly 42 yrs old- graduating from college in May (lol)- and my oldest daughter does too- I want to lose weight to look good for those.
I am terrible at sticking to diets- so I thought perhaps a new approach is necc. and sparkpeople seems to let a person be themselves while changing their lifestyle. I like that.
Thanks for inviting me to your group!

Hi, Im Johanna and this is my first day on SP. I am currently trying to put myself first and its been a bit of a challenge but I am ready to do it in 2013. I am a single mom of two kids 9 and 5 and noticing that my 9 yo is gaining a lot of weight too. I want to help him, but before I can I have to help myself, so Im looking for support where I can find it! I live far from family and even though I have friends in the area, its hard to come home after working to have to cook, so I need recipes too. So far from what Ive seen on here, I think this is the perfect place for me to get myself healthy, and with all your support I am going to make it happen emoticon

Hi Team! I'm so glad to be part of a group so thank you for inviting me. I love some of your goals like the 10 sets of 10 Jeanie! I'm hoping to lose 25-30 lbs and just got a puppy who is keeping me super duper busy! But thats a good thing. No more naps on the couch after work! Looking forward to the challenges ahead and meeting some new spark buddies!

Hi I'm Jeannie , thank you for the invite! I have 100 pounds to loose but I would like to think of it as 10 sets of 10. I would like to loose 10 pounds every month for 10 months. I look forward to sharing this journey with the team. Thanks again for reaching out to me . I had no idea where to start.

Hi, my name is Carol, I've been with SP for nearly 2 years (in April) and have lost over 30lb. I lead quite a healthy lifestyle now. I have a fitbit and try to log at least 15,000 steps a day, which I usually manage. I've also just "got into" juicing, so delicious and healthy.

I'm 51 with one older daughter (with 2 grandkids and a third on the way), plus 2 younger children of my own (10 and 8) - so happy and so lucky - life is great!

Hi I'm Sawyer and I just joined Spark! I live in Port Saint Lucie FL with my husband, our 8 year old son and our 4 fur babies! I want to lose 120 pounds total but am doing small steps. My first goal is 50 pounds by the end of July! I love to bowl and go twice a week for at least 2 hours each time, and I also love pool walking! I am really glad to be here and am looking forward to losing weight and having fun!
