I'm glad some of you read my SparkMail and came on over to check out the team. This class team is mainly the place to help you get started. Ask away if you have questions about getting started on SP. And maybe find a motivation / support buddy here among other newbies if that might help you. However you end up using SparkPeople, I wish you the best of successes with achieving your goals.

Name - Lauren
Why Spark - I read about it in a blog and I loved all the help the website offers. I also like the community and I hope I'll be able to succeed now there are people here to motivate me.
What do you hope to achieve - I generally want to look and feel healthier and happier with myself and cut out the mindless snacking.
Goal - My ultimate goal is to reach 120lbs but my first aim is to feel confident in a bikini by the summer!
Married? - No, I'm only 21 :)
Children? - No
Pets? - 1 dog
Hobbies - netball is my main hobby (I'm from the UK), I usually train once a week and have matches every 2 weeks. I love swimming as well but since starting university I've found it difficult to fit it in so I try to go to the gym 3 times a week.
Anything else? - My biggest weakness is chocolate, I usually turn to it in the evenings and it's become such a habit that when I don't have any I crave it like mad. But hopefully with SP I'll be able to kick this bad habit!!

Hi! My name is Karen and I am brand new to SP. I literally just joined yesterday late in the day so I am learning and malign my way through the site. A bit of sensory overload as there is a lot to see and explore!

I am turning 48 this month on the 14th and have had a weight issue most of my adult life with multiple losses and then gaining back of weight. I need to change my mindset and have a lifestyle change vs being on a diet. I think that is where I have gone wrong all these years. I did use another site that was similar to this but did not stay motivated in it as it seemed only the same people wrote in etc and it got a bit boring.

I am married to a great man - we have been married for 23 years and we have two teens. I work FT and I am also in the Air Force Reserves, so I am very busy.
We have a choc lab who is a hoot. I have multiple hobbies, my fav being stained glass work and knitting.

My goal is to change my lifestyle and in doing so, lose 40-45 pounds. I am excited to join this group!
Karen

I saw SheenaDee's email to our class come in this morning. I previously didn't know what "SP Class" meant, so hadn't been here before.

I started last Monday and lost some pounds on a starvation diet (600 calories/day), then read somewhere here that it's better to eat as much as a person of your target weight should, according to a Basic Metabolism Rate formula. I started doing that on Friday and stopped losing weight, but I haven't gained any weight either. I have five pounds to go before I reach my target of 182 lbs. I have been floating around 15 pounds over my target weight for about a year. Two years ago I had starvation dieted myself down to within one pound of my high school wrestling weight class (168 lbs), but I gained it all back fairly quickly.

name? Tim
why spark? My belly was getting uncomfortably large. Time to arrest it so it doesn't get out of hand as I age (I'm 51 in 2013.)
what do you hope to achieve? Get my weekly weight cycle back to topping out within five pounds of my target weight, instead of ten pounds higher.
married? No
children ? No
pets? No
hobbies: Books, music, movies; keeping up with technology for my high-stress job.

Name? Alexis

Why spark? A friend recommended it a long time ago, I am just now getting around to joining

What do you hope to achieve? A new life

Do you have a goal in mind? Long term goal is to get down to around 140, but short term goals are 5% body weight at the moment so, 15 lbs.

Married? Nope

Children? Depends on the definition, I say I have my "fur-kids" a golden retriever and 4 cats

Pets? None of my animals see themselves as merely "pets" see above :)

Hobbies? Hmm, well I love to meet new people and travel to new places. I also like going to the movies (3D!), photography, writing, and spending time with friends.

Is there anything else you would like to share with your new friends? My biggest problem I have encountered when trying to lose weight is that I give up. Either I do not see results like I think I should, or I will often tell myself things like "well yes, you've lost 10 lbs...but what about the other 140 you still have to lose..." and I get discouraged. I hope that Sparkpeople will help me stick with it and possibly be there to give that little nudge of support to someone else that is in a similar situation.

Hello all! My name is Rhonda. I am a stay at home mom, for now. I have been overweight for most of my life. I came across this site on a google search. I have tried several diets to loose weight and none have worked. I also had a lap band placed in April 2010, only to have it slip and almost eroded through my stomach. So it had to be removed June 2011. I lost 70lbs with it. But once removed my weight came back fast. I am hoping to start out slow, and hopefully the weight will stay off this time. emoticon

Hi, I'm Diana and I ran across Spark People when I signed up on Pinterest for the first time. The name caught my attention and thought I would give it a try. I'm very new and still haven't navigated the website fully. My biggest obstacle is motivation. Its really hard to be motivated to do much of anything after working all day. My second biggest obstacle is fighting the urge to eat things I know I shouldn't...even when I have the right thing there in front of me. I'm not sure what the mental block is, but I'm hoping to get some really good ideas to help me along the way. I'm looking forward to getting started. emoticon
