Thank you for the invite! I thought the group sounded fun and positive and thought I'd join in.

I have been with spark for years and everything got out of control and I ended up back at my heaviest weight ever.

i have had some health warnings and have not been able to get out of hypertension 1 so I think the only way to do that is to lose weight. I want to see my kids as happy adults so i am serious in my battle here. I guess I see myself as a princess with a sword, no knight is going to save me from myself...i have to do it on my own.

1st Goal: 18lbs by June 1 - Met goal on 4/28

2nd Goal: Onederland by July 31

Hi, I appreciate the invite to this team, thank you so much Bubble-gum. Well, Iím Lynn_Loveslife7 (Lynn) and I didnít join this team because of the invite. I joined this team because the meaning behind the team, Iím determined to finish strong.
Well, a tad about me. Iím a wife, mother of 3 teens, and yes one of my teens is a senior; Iím 36 y/y going on 40 because for some odd reason I think 40 is awesome. 36 is awesome too, but with 40 I believe a woman becomes her greatest gift in life, and thatís why Iím working on my health before I reach the age of 40. Everyone is trying to get fit by 30/40/ or 50, and I donít want to do anything like that at all. I want get fit now and enjoy my body in my 40s/50s/60s/70s for as long as God allows me breath in my body. Iím active, very active, and I can get somewhat depressed if itís rain in the forecast because I love to go on my long hike walks with my mother. I enjoy fairly-tales and believe strongly in the fairly-tale love romance ending. And I want my GOAL reach to be my fairly-tale beginning. So, thank you once again for the invite, and I hope I donít let any of you down.

Peace & Blessings

Hello everyone! My name is Sarah, and I'm a returning Sparker. I joined a few years ago, but I wasn't fully invested in a life change. I joined again last month, but I am just now getting around to the message boards. I got married last summer, and I love my new life. Meeting my Prince Charming has really made me realize that I am putting my happiness in jeopardy through my bad habits / unhealthy decisions. I want to be around to love my husband for as long as humanly possible. I am also obsessed with everything Disney, so this is a perfect group for me!

I'm trying to live a more natural lifestyle and just make better choices in general. I didn't gain all of this weight quickly, so I know that I won't lose it all at once. I'm looking for friends / motivation to help me complete my journey :)

Hi fellow Sparklers. My name is Dari and Cinderella has always been my favorite animated movie for as long as I can remember. When I was little I was completely entranced with her dress. The one from the Lesley Ann Warren version. I remember praying and wishing so hard for a Cinderella dress and a Handsome Prince and I got both on the day I got married, April 6,1985. My prince has since passed away but I still have my dress! I have been on Spark since the end of Sept 2013 but I first logged on in Sept 2012 so that date shows as the date I joined. I have struggled since the first day I joined. I officially have lost one lb since then!! I've learned and incorporated a lot since but I am a binger and it kinda gets in the way. I started anew 3 days ago and am 3 days binge free. I am handicapped to an extent. I walk but not too far at one time and when I exercise it's in a chair as I have vertigo. I also have hypertension, type II diabetes and some other ailments. I need to lose about 110lbs and I know I'm the only one who can do it therefore I WILL NOT GIVE UP!!

I'm so glad you came on this board. Finally, I meet someone with my story! I meet so many people who come to SP and have instant success. I've been a member since 2007 and at first I was having some success, but now I think all that success was because I was nursing because I hit a plateau as I was weaning my daughter and all my success has been lost since. I know my problem is mostly due to the fact that I'm in prediabetes stage and until I get my blood sugar under control, there goes my success. My goal is to take small steps and make them healthy habits. I know I have it in me. I rarely drink soda and that is something I phased in a long time ago. I went to less sugar or sugar substitutes when I got pregnant with my daughter. I just need to build on that, but I think getting my love for exercising back is key and to do it without injuring myself. I'm taking a test today and seeing how I can become my biggest motivator. Hoping that will help me so I can stay consistent even when I'm trying so hard and the scale is just cruel to me.

Thank you for the invite Bubblegum Fairy.

I couldn't pass up a chance with a name like "Cinderella Sparklers", lol.

I have been a member since 2006 and have been up and down weight wise, hopefully this will be the year.

Thank you for the welcomes and very interesting about the ulcer. Something to think about. I may have to get it looked into if things don't settle down.

Hi Angela!

The same thing happens with me, I would get stomach aches and water did that. My doctor put me on an ulcer medication. I don't know if that is what is causing yours but my doctor just told me that if you have an ulcer water can upset your stomach. You are right when you said it is all about small changes. We are in this together and are all here to support each other. Welcome to the team! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I received an invite from Bubblegum_fairy and then I saw Cinderella and thought how can I refuse. My daughter and I love the Disney princesses. We have Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Bell, and Snow White Barbies. LOL

I also liked that this team is geared for those who are not instant success stories with weight loss. I've been with SparkPeople for awhile. I joined after my daughter was born and I was losing weight but wanted to have further motivation and support to reach my goal. I got down to like 145, but then as I was weaning my daughter off of nursing, the weight gain started happening so it feels like all my success was really just because I was nursing my daughter. emoticon

I am in a prediabetes state so I know that has a lot to do with my weight loss struggles. I need to find a way to get my blood sugar under control. I was getting very frustrated, but now I'm more focused on living a healthier life, realizing I'm not going to do this perfectly, but I don't need to be perfect, just consistently doing my best.

I'm tired of getting upset about making changes and they don't seem to do anything for me. I have to trust the process that eventually this will all pay off. I've re-established my sleeping because it was really getting out of kilter so next will be re-establishing my water kick. My tummy has been upset and for some reason when it's upset, it doesn't like drinking water. Once that has been re-established, I will work on the next goal. My plan is to keep making small changes that lead up to big successes. Thanks to the SparkPeople challenge my exercise has been consistent because I don't want to let my team down. I like that on my team that some of the team members are in the same boat as me. Makes me feel good that I'm not the only one who struggles.

I joined this team b/c Bubble Gum Fairy sent me an invitation. Since I am Snow White, how could I refuse?

I have been a spark member for many years and tried many plans. I have found a plan that works for me now! I have transformed into a healthy vegan. This plan is easy for me to stick with because I love to eat and you don't have to starve to be a vegan. I have lost 11 pounds the 1st 7 weeks and I feel like it is true weight loss, not a yo-yo like before. I am trying to incorporate more exercise and get more disciplined about exercise.

Glad to be here and involved in this transformation! After all, who wants to have a fat Snow White?

Hi! I'm Patti. I have been with SP for over 2 years, and had been doing well and lost 50 pounds, but a lot of life got in the way, and I had gained some weight back, but ready to move forward! emoticon emoticon

Hi! Thanks for the invite, I am super excited to be part of this team. I have been on SP since January and on my weight loss journey since September. I have lost a total of 57 pounds since September and 20 with Sparkpeople. I have 43 more pounds to go before I reach my goal weight. Every bit of support is welcome and I am here to help everyone as well. Together we can do this ! emoticon

Hello!!! I am new but not new... I was away from SP for "a minute" due to a lot of things! I didn't take time for me and that is about to change!!! I am 43, a mother and a wicked step monster, married to the love of my life (though I suspect I am not the love of his) oh well. I am an Operating Room nurse and love my job. It is a new endeavor for me! I want to be healthier and thinner. I have been thinner but not necessarily healthier (body and mostly mind)!!! I have realized that you can lose all the weight you want but if you don't get your mind right you are not going to stay that way! Enough babbling now!!! Have a great day!!! emoticon for the invite!!!

Hello everyone.

It's a pleasure to meet you all. I have been a member on and off of spark since 2012. I began coming to spark to gain support and make positive changes in my life with regards to eating healthier and exercising regularly. I have struggled much with weight loss all my life and now I am determined more than ever to make these changes. I had returned recently to spark with the hope that I will be able to gain support and motivation to keep taking steps forward. My hubby and I have been trying to conceive and working with a infertility specialist due to my PCOS. This has been an emotional rollarcoaster the last 9 months. I hope with the small group to get to know people better and have more interaction. This is what has made the difference for me in the past.

Thanks for the invite.

Thanks for inviting me to the team. I am anxious to see what this team does. I've been on SP for 4 years now and have had a hard time losing the weight because of med's. Finally found a good doctor who changed my med's around and am finally starting to see results. I like small teams so I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone.

Thanks for the invite!! I am in the same boat as I hear several others of you talking about...

I originally joined SparkPeople back in 2008, and was wonderfully successful. I was battling cervical cancer at the time and have come through that wonderfully, I had shrunk down to 175 and was moving great. And then... I don't even know what happened - life I guess.

Back at SparkPeople last summer, but not fully committed. I was also on another site with my family and dedicated most of my energy and time there but we all fell off there and after a time of self pity and indulgence I'm back here and trying to get serious.

I'm still not as committed as I need to be, but I'm moving in the right direction and I'm looking forward to sharing the experience with this group of happy, "spark"ly people.

I've been at Sparkpeople for a year now. I was diagonosed with hypothyroidism in May 2012 which led me to a forum post on sparkpeople. The rest is history as they say! emoticon

I joined the group because I emoticon Disney and princess stuff! I'm a girly girl for sure! Just a girly girl with muscles! emoticon Ha ha! I went to Disney World for the first time last summer and was in love. I threatened to sneak into Cinderella's castle so I could live there and stay for good. My 12 year old daughter wouldn't let me. *pouts* But I will be going back again soon! Not this summer but soon!

I look forward to getting to know everyone here!

Thank you for the invite! I've been on and off sparkpeople for the past year (or two?) but never making any consistent connections with people or any changes. This is the year for me though that it's make it or break it, and I *need* to reach my goal. I want to lose a total of 80 lbs so I can join the Navy...and I'm not getting any younger here! So I'm looking forward to meeting everyone and hoping that these connections will help me along my way :)

Thank you for the invite into the group! I am honored to become a new member! :) I joined Spark back in 2010. I just celebrated my 3 year anniversary a few months back. I've been on and off the last three years but something always brings me back..this time I'm back for good! I've never been this motivated and I have an amazing support system both on and offline. :) Thanks again and I look forward to new friendships and getting to follow more people on their journeys!

Thank you for the invite...I have had Disney on the brain and I think the princess is a sign! I look forward to working together toward our goals, whatever they may be! My goal is to heal completely, become physically able to pass the military fitness test, and generally be able to kick ass when required! I hope that will involve losing almost 80 lbs...but it's more important to be fit for me than whatever the scale says! Hello!

Thanks for the team invite! I love anything SPARKLY, PRINCESSEY, (? Hmmm, can't spell since it's not a word, lol) and GLAM! So this seems like a great team for me!

Thanks to my sweet pal, Bubblegum Fairy, for the invite. I'm not a very good team member because I don't have time for challenges, but I do enjoy meeting and sharing with SPals. I am generally 11 pounds away from my Ultimate Goal, after losing more than 40 pounds overall these past few years. I am busy busy busy, with a demanding full-time job and a "fun" part-time job, and manage the lives of my clients and family. I love to read, and I raise orchids and bake in my "spare time." I three fur friends at home, Gato, Bailey, and Mali, and a sweet husband and two kids. The Boy is 25 and getting married next May, and The Girl is 22 and a student.

I appreciate all moral support from my Sp pals, and try to give good support in return.

Thank you very much for inviting me to this group!

I came to SparkPeople earlier this year with my mom. She's on a weight lose journey and I just want to get a better body back. I've gone through two pregnancies now and it's evident. I lost all of the weight after my first daughter was born, but I'm still 18 lbs over mypre-pregnancy weight from my second daughter, who is now 2 1/2. I'm attempting to lose some of the fat, mostly around my stomach, and to really tone up.

This group actually reminds me of my older daughter. She loves Cinderella!

Thank you for the invite!! I feel privileged to be here! I kinda like finding a small group to get in on so it gives me a chance to know some people a little better. The large groups make me feel like there is no way to connect to anyone. Hoping that we can get to know each other better!!! Thanks again Bubblegum_fairy!!!

I feel privileged to have been invited. emoticon

I joined SparkPeople almost a year ago because I was pre-diabetic and it scared me. I am no longer pre-diabetic and have lost 22 lbs. emoticon What I think I can gain from this team is a better self-image as a female with an abuse background. I seldom dress pretty because of that. I am looking forward to learning and growing and making new friends. emoticon

Love, Chelsea

Greetings all - I joined in 2008 and am celebrating my 5 year anniversary this very week - I had my ups and downs and non-participatory times too, but totally back on track now. Working hard to get rid of the excess and gain independence from fat and medications.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

I joined SP a while back and then kinda feel off the wagon so to speak. It just seemed like too much work to log everything and read blogs and everything else. Within the past few years my life has undergone many changes....divorce, new relationship, moved to new city, change, change, change.

I decided with my move that since I was starting my new life I'd persue a new me. I've always been unhappy with my weight and decided once and for all to get rid of it for good. I'm now dedicated to logging meals and workouts....and actually doing some working out LOL. Thank you for the invite BUBBLEGIUM_FAIRY!

From this emoticon to this emoticon ....... emoticon

Reach for the stars for they are nothing but your goals twinkling with inspiration!!!
