I am so sorry about your losses. I think you can take things slowly and in accordance to your doctors instructions, with these taken care of, also look into your diet and let us know how this goes with you.

Hi I am new to this team. My name is Karen and I live in the suburbs of Chicago. I work full time, have a daughter, husband and 2 dogs. I have been on spark since 2007, lost close to 60 pounds, gained about 40 and am trying to get back in the groove. I have RA but I try not to let it slow me down too much. I figure the arthritis won't kill me but the heart disease I get from laying around will so I make myself get out there for my own good. Over the past 2 years I derailed in a big way (see 40 pound weight gain). In the past year alone, I lost my dad to Alzheimer's and my brother to liver cancer, then got to deal with the super fun time I had getting a biopsy when I had a mammogram come back abnormally. I loved getting that phone call the day of my brother's funeral. I definitely need motivation so I dropped out of some teams that were no longer working for me and found some new ones that I hope I can tap into to restart my spark. I've been riding my bike to the train station every day. That's really kind of fun. It's getting really dark and cold in the mornings though so I'm going to have to making my own sunshine. I'm hoping to keep riding into December.

Hi, I'm a 31-y/o grad student. I think the challenges for this team look fun and should help keep me in a positive frame of mind.

Hi everyone! This team sounds very encouraging and motivating. I like challenges to help me stay on track. I do have a health condition which limits what I am able to do physically but I am trying to make the best of it and do the things that I am able to do. Looking forward to getting to know you.

I AM NEW TO THIS TEAM BUT NEED TO FIND MOTIVATION. I AM 68 YEARS OLD WITH A DAUGHTER (SON WAS KILLED TWO YEARS AGO) AND THREE GRANDCHILDREN. MY HUSBAND AND I WILL CELEBRATE OUR 50TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY NEXT JUNE 14. I HAVE HAD A STROKE A FEW YEARS AGO AND USE A WALKER BECAUSE I HAVE BALANCE ISSUES. I AM VERY LONELY MOST OF THE TIME. I HAVE FOUND THAT I CAN'T DO MOST THINGS AND FEW NEIGHBORS ARE WILLING TO PUT UP WITH MY WALKER AND MY SLOWNESS. I CAN'T BLAME THEM BECAUSE IF WOULD BE THE SAME IF I WERE YOUNGER AND MORE FIT! I NEED TO EXERCISE BUT AM NOT AT ALL MOTIVAED TO DO IT. EVEN 10 OR 15 MINUTES WOULD BE GREAT IF I STUCK TO IT EVERY DAY. I NEED HELP BUT AM TOO PROUD TO ASK FOR IT--EVEN FROM MY HUSBAND AND DAUGHTER! I AM IN MORE GROUPS THAN I NEED BUT AM WILLING TO CUT SOME OF THEM TO JOIN YOU GUYS!

BUT MY SHORT TERM GOAL IS GETTING BELOW 300. I'VE LEARNED THAN LOSING 10% CAN IMPROVE HEALTH AND WELLNESS! Lynnsallee

Hi All,

I am getting back on track with Sparks after working 4 months on remodeling my home. I was doing pretty good before I stopped and now I want to pick up where I was before.

I feel better eating Whole Foods and trying to workout 6 days per week.

I would like to check in with the Motivation blogs. I know its a proven way to have success.

Hello, my name is Wendy. I am 39 years old and live in Joplin, MO. I am the mother of 2 boys, Thomas age 19 and Breck age 12. I live with my fiancee Brian. We are planning to get married in October 2015 so that is my goal date to lose weight. I have lost 20 pounds so far. I still have 150 pounds to go. I have yo-yo dieted several times, losing weight only to gain it back and then some. Staying motivated has been difficult for me in the past, so I thought this team sounded good for me. One thing I have been doing to stay motivated is to read a motivational or inspirational quote each day. I then post the quote as my status and hope I help to motivate someone else. Please feel free to add me as a friend. The more support the better!

Wendy
