Hello everyone. I am a RN from NY who needs to lose a lot of weight. I returned to school in February and ever since then the weight has piled on. I know I have been eating because of the pressure of school. I joined SparkPeople one week ago and since then I have loss 5 lbs, mostly water I am sure. The truth of the matter is, I have been eating right and I have been exercising too, so I am not really surprise at the result. I just hope that I can maintain this intensity.

Hello!!!

I'm a 29 year old woman who has been married to my wonderful husband for 10 years. God has blessed us with 2 children. Our son who is 9 and our daughter who is 1. We live in the southern part of Kentucky, but I was born and raised in a small, farming community about 45 min out of Cincinnati, Ohio.

I've always had a hard time with my weight. I always hoped I would grow out of my whole "chunky" stage and I did...just not the way that I was hoping. I grew right out of my "chunky" stage into my current "obese" stage. As of right now, I need to lose around 110 lbs to get to a healthy BMI. Huge task, but with my family's support, you all cheering me on, and God helping me, I know that I can do this!

Feel free to stop by my page and introduce yourself. Also feel free to add me to your friends. I can't wait to meet all of you and to watch you guys not only meet your goals, but bust through them!

I am a newbie to SP. I have been on the gaining and losing weight merry-go-round for several years. I need to get the weight off and KEEP it off....that is the real challenge.

I live in the beautiful city of Chattanooga, TN. I am the mother of three grown children and two adorable grandchildren.

I think that losing weight is the hardest after the age of 50. I need accountability and support.

Looking forward to participating in this groups.

Every day may not be good but there is something GOOD in every day!

Hi, I'm a returning member from Georgia! I've been married to my wonderful husband for 33 years, we have a son and daughter-in-law and a little furbaby. I lost some weight on Sparkpeople before, but had more problems with my lung disease. Now it's in remission and I'm here to lose the rest of the weight.

Hello everyone! My name is Crissy and I'm 29 years old. I live in Kentucky with my amazing husband, 2 children (9 year old son/2 year old daughter), and our 3 year old mutt whose name is Malia.
I've always been on the chunky side, however, I've had a wakeup call recently that made me realize just how far I've allowed myself to go. I'm now weighing in at my highest weight ever...210 lbs.
I can't wait to meet all of you and watch you all meet your goals!

Hi everyone. My name is Ani and I am 56 years young. I'm a school teacher from South Florida. I have a very hard time staying on track. Healthy eating is not an issue, exercise, however, is a big problem. I am great at making excuses to not exercise, I.e. "long day, my knees hurt, I'm tired, etc, etc., etc.". I need accountability!!

Hi, I'm Jo. Having a tough time staying on track but I try every day. I'm 66. Three years ago my 2nd husband died leaving me all alone. It is the first time in my life I have ever lived alone. My biggest problem is actually cooking for one. I'm too lazy and end up just grabbing whatever is quick. So I'm not completely alone....I have 2 cats (Heckle & Jeckle) and a dog (Peabody). So at least I have something to talk to once in a while.

Hi Barb.(BA5454) I'm Robin, also an RN from Ohio. I've lost 40 lbs and would like to lose about 15 more. I'm doing pretty well with diet, but have a hard time getting motivated to exercise. Maybe we could use our strengths to encourage each other.

Hello everyone. My name is Julie. I was successful at losing, having lost 170 lbs up until last year when I had a medication change. Then it seemed like everything I was doing flew out the window. I've gained 50 lbs and feel horrible. I know I need to get back on track and work harder, so that's where I am right now. I need to talk myself into doing more strength training instead of just cardio. I love the elliptical. I'm ready to make the change back to where I was last year.

Hi, I'm Barb from Ohio. I don't have a problem with fitness (running and hiking), but nutrition is another thing altogether! I would like to lose the pounds I've gained since retirement 3 years ago (approx. 35 lbs). I'm an RN retired from the military, and now work here and there at a local park conservancy. Married w/one dog, lol. Nice to meet everyone here!

Hi! I'm Robin, at 28 yo SAHM to two girls under 2. I'm a writer (since I can't go back to work right now) and an avid reader. I love reading everything. I'm also an avid yarn crafter-knitting, crochet, spinning.

I have 140-ish pounds to lose to be at my goal weight, but I'm breaking it up into sections. Right now I'm moving toward losing 54 pounds by the end of the year. My routine is primarily dance-based (zumba, bellydancing), but I also do Jillian Michaels workouts. I struggle to maintain a routine because my only real time to workout is when my girls go down for naps but they rarely go down at the same time.

But I'm planning to make this work despite the challenges!

Hello everyone, My name is Sharon Jones. I am 59 years young. I want to lose 100 lbs. I purchased a fitbit on the 1st of the month, and have been wearing it everyday except the last 2, as it quick, got it working again, and back on track. I wanted to get use to having it on and seeing if I would use it. I like it alot and found it really motivates me. I have set up my treadmill and total gym as well.... I am hoping if I add one more motivater by getting a tracking buddy it would push me over the edge.

YES I CAN

Hello everyone! I'm a 29 year old woman who has been married for 10 years. We have been blessed with 2 children, a 9 year old son and a 1 year old daughter. I've always been on the "chunky" side, but after giving birth to my son, I gained a lot of weight. It wasn't until after giving birth to my daughter that I weighed my heaviest...220 lbs. I was shocked that I had allowed myself to get like this. Shocked and disgusted. I've now lost 15 lbs, but I know that I have a very long road ahead of me. Can't wait to meet you all!

Hi. My name is Patti. I have been with Spark People for about 10 years. I have been doing pretty good at losing weight and just now hit a plateau and have been the same weight for two weigh ins. I know that staying the same weight is better than gaining but I really need to come up witha strategy to break the plateau. My goal is to lose at least 10 pounds.

Hi! I'm Blair and I am an almost done college student. I have always struggled to lose weight and have gone on health kicks and weight loss adventures before but nothing has really worked. The difference this time is that I'm in it for the long haul this time. My goal is to lose 50 pounds.

It'll be hard with student teaching coming up in September but I feel like it will only make me healthier and more successful with my studies. I'm great at motivating others just not myself. :)

Smile! It makes you feel better :)

Hi all. I'm Bean and I currently live in Northern NJ. I'm quickly approaching 39, no kids, but one fantastic little dog who might as well be a child with the amount of attention I give him.

My goal right now is to lose about 40 lbs while dropping certain bad habits, but once I get there, I'll reevaluate how much more I want to lose. I would love to be anyone's support buddy!

Hello, I am 28 years old and have done SP over and over. I never stick with it. I am hoping an accountability partner will help keep my motivated. I train dogs and I face a lot of discrimination because of my size. I just want to be healthier overall and start making changes to make myself a healthy.

Hello everyone,

I am Diane aka FIT4HZGLORY. I am so glad to be a part of this team. My initial joining of SP was in 2013. I did not re-visit SP until this year in January. I am really enjoying the support that I am receiving from my SPTeams. Now I am very serious about my lifestyle change and am looking forward to the successes that I will experience and the motivations that will be shared by you to me and me to you.

Heres hoping that you have a beautiful day!!!

So I got carried away in the find a partner thread so I will just cut and paste it here lol

I am Chrys, a 320lbs, transgender gamer. I need to lose at least 120lbs (my first goal). I am not super mobile do to an accident that broke my left leg. It's been spiked with a rod but still not as mobile as I once was. I have a number of problems, including but not limited to bi-polar, fibromyalgia, chronic back and neck pain. I am a bit of a scatterbrain. ADDish. Video games and reading are two of the few things that can keep my attention for more then five minutes. I have a few friends who joke about how they have to log into xbox and bug me on live just to make sure I'm still alive lol.

I've been told I have an... interesting personality, overly blunt or unintentionally snide/sarcastic sounding. My moods flip easily. Depression is a daily factor in my life. I can sometimes be creepy silent, over SERIOUSLY blabby, (you think this post is bad heh). And i have a problem with asking for help most of the time. Being alone most of your life tends to do that to a person.

Hi I am new to this team, and re joined spark"s I had lost 83 pounds but have gained 23 back so would like to get it off plus an extra 45! I know I can do this I did it once before emoticon Just takes time, effort, motivation, and friends that are going through the same thing. Hope to make some new friends on here and motivate one in another to do our best!

Hi everyone,

As of today I weigh 198, and need to be down under 150... and probably would love it around 130. I joined this team a couple of weeks ago, and I'm just now introducing myself.
emoticon

I used to workout all the time and was in great shape, up until about 10 years ago. Now it's a struggle to get back in the swing of things.
emoticon

I've been on SP for just two short spurts for about 2 months each time since 2012. Then just 5 weeks ago, I did my third re-start, and I'm hoping this will be the time I finally get it together.
emoticon

I just started to blog about this whole experience, and I think it's helped me a lot just writing about where I'm starting out. If you read them, you'll see where I am, and how frustrating it's been.

My main issue is that I seem to go in phases of doing real well, and then not so much. So if you're like me, hopefully we can keep each other on track!

A little about me... I'm single and don't have any children, but I have two adopted Fur Babies. I live in the hills of Sparks NV, which is basically connected to Reno, and a few minutes from Lake Tahoe. I'm a Christian and very spiritual, but I don't attend a church. I have special gifts relating to Metaphysics and a love of the Sciences. If you're interested, I touch on it in my photos section. My DVR is mostly every Science or History documentary that's aired. They record quicker than I can watch them.
emoticon

I'm hoping to find a partner(S) THE MORE THE MERRIER! I'm very active on SP now and want to stay that way.

So if anyone reads this and wants to be my partner, please let me know asap! I can handle and WANT a lot of others to communicate with, and help in anyway I can!

Thanks!

Hi everyone. I have been with Spark on and off for years, and this year, my 60th I am determined to lose weight, even though it is the hardest thing for me to do. I live in Malta and teach English privately at home. I have been fighting my weight since I can't remember when so this is my last ditch effort.

Today is the beginning of the rest of my life.

Hello everyone, I joined Sparkpeople towards the end of Jan 2014. I am still learning the system, and still looking around checking out the site. There are lots of things on this website. And have to admit, I get lost in some of the posts, from others and articles, etc....

Anyhow, I did join other teams, like 30-50 lbs or more to lose, Florida and now this one too. I am 33 years young, and hit the heavies point in my life, so now we need to get this weight in control. I have been making baby steps since November/Dec 2013, but decided to crank up my efforts Jan/Feb 2014. Glad to know I am not alone and others are working just as hard and together to achieve the same goal.

Much success to all

Little

Hello. My name is Angela and I am 48 years old. I have a little boy who is about to turn 10. I live in St. Louis MO and this cold winter has made me ready to get outside. I have recently been diagnosed with Diabetes which has thrown me for a curve. I am trying to get into better shape and live a healthier life. I look forward to finding a buddy to help me with my journey and that I can maybe help as well.

Hello. Frank here. New at this. Only a month so far in SP. Had weight issues all my life. Struggled a lot with them. In the last 10 years gained a considerable amount of weight. Tried different methods, but it was the lack of perseverance what messed up the outcome.
last December, I made a promise to myself to make a dramatic and consistent Lifestyle change. So far, doing great. exercising periodically, eating healthy and embracing the new lifestyle.
Greetings to all here.
Encouraging messages will be highly appreciated.

Howdy. I'm Winter. I have gone up and down with my weight over the years but it steadily climbs higher on the ups than it slides on the downs. I am a Mom and full time performing arts minister. I'm in the snowd-in midwest, but Spring is coming and I WILL get out of the house eventually...lol I write and surf the teams regularly so I'll be around. Be well

My name is Dawn. I am from the East Coast and have been snowed in for a while. I do not have a partner to help me in my journey really. My daughters are doing the diet with me but do not have to lose as much and can be more flexible with it than me because of my health problems. I have problems with stress and eat when I stress alot. Hope this team can help me.

Hi, I'm Doug. West Coast born and raised in BC Canada.
New to this team, but have played with Sparks for a while.
I successfully lost 65 pounds 2012-2013, but didn't fair so well on the maintenance part of the deal.

Back at the grindstone to get back to 185 pounds and to maintain properly this time.
I am 58 this year and retired a few years ago. I have hypothyroidism with no other complications. I am on a Gluten Free diet because my wife is Gluten Intolerant (not Celiac, but has very prominent physical symptoms if she eats any wheat / gluten products). I will see you around the message boards as I continue to seek out an accountability partner.

Hi Everyone! Thank you for inviting me to your team. I am a 30 year old former teacher, currently administrative assistant looking to get in shape. I live in a suburb of Chicago. I am a die hard Bears, White Sox and Hawks fan! I have two beautiful huskies who I love to pieces. When I look in the mirror I am more than unhappy with what I see. For the past two years I wouldn't wear shorts in the summer because of my legs. This summer I would like to wear a pair of shorts. So far I have been doing this for 2 weeks and haven't seen any results. I'm not giving up but could really use some friends and support. If you would like to add me as a friend go ahead. I will try to provide you with encouragement and support!

Hi! I live in Tennessee and am a retired teacher (math, which I taught in our county for 25 years). I now work as secretary/bookkeeper at my church, Sacred Heart. I am a devoted Catholic, mother of four adult children, two adult grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. I am 75 years old & in a couple of months will be 76! My eating plan began on January 13, 2014 and since then I have lost 10.5 lbs. It's hard for me to exercise, both because I have a few physical problems and because I work and play the piano or organ at my church up to three times a weekend! But I finally made my doctor agree that I could join the gym, which I plan to do after March 1st (payday)!

Many thanks for the invitation!

Hello everyone! My name is Julie and I'm a 29 year old electrical engineer living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
God, family, and now my health are the most important things in my life. I also train in karate with my parents and husband.
My goals are to lose ultimately 120 lbs or so but baby steps first so right now I would like to be down 40. My main reason for desperately needing to get healthy is that me and my husband have been trying to conceive for years now and it just hasn't happened. We have and amazing marriage and really want to add a child to our lives. Right now, the doctors say that my chances of pregnancy go up with every pound lost so I am trying to make it happen! Lots of healthier choices and prayers to St.Gerard in my life right now!
It's very nice to be in this group and I look forward to talking to all of you.

My name is Beth. I am new to Spark People but I have not been very motivated lately. I could come up with a hundred excuses about how the winter is long...or I think I am coming down with a bug.....or blah blah blah blah. So what I am trying to say is I think having another person that is holding me accountable would be very beneficial. Just thinking about it makes me want to have a very productive and healthy day. Hope everyone is as excited about this team as I am.
