Hello everyone! I'll be honest, when I look in the mirror I seriously think I am a healthy weight and have been this weight for years (almost 10 now). That's why it is so much harder for me to fully commit. The reason I need to lose weight is that during my entire career in the Navy I have been "out of standards" with my weight and body fat (which the method they use is incredibly inaccurate for some body types). I am sick of starving myself the weeks before a weigh in and I am trying to "reset my body weight setpoint". I need all the help, motivation and tips I can get about weight loss. I can do 50 pushups easily but I cannot seem to lose even 5 pounds. I wish everyone on here the best of luck and if you would like someone to talk to I would love to get a message. emoticon emoticon

Hi everyone! I started to "spark" 4 days ago. I have 110 pounds to loose which I slowly accumulated through 3 pregnancies and 2 miscarriages. I am have been happily married for 33 years and have 2 boys, 1 girl and 2 grandsons. I live in Canada northern Ontario. I really look forward to making new friends in this "community" where everybody share a common goal: lose weight in the healthiest fashion!!! :-)

Seize the day!

Hello. My name is Tina and I have 15-20 pounds to lose. Mainly I just want to shape up a little looks-wise and a lot healthwise. I joined as an encouragement to make changes and stick with them rather than going back to my old habits once my wardrobe fits again.

Hi.

I plan to lose 12-22 lbs. I might be content when I reach the weight that Sparkpeople recommended. More importantly I just want to get healthier. I'm out of shape and I really need to tighten up.

I'm a stay at home mom who recently moved from the beach to a small farm town in the Midwest (we'll be here 4 years). I am having a hard time adjusting and I have become depressed and bored. I hate the cold and snow. I miss the South and I have made no friends, so I'm lonely. As a result I've gained some weight, which makes me more depressed.

I'm ready to take the power back.

That's what she said

I joined a few days ago. I started back to the gym at the beginning of October and then decided this week to start working on the food aspect. I'm trying to be realistic, take it slow and tell myself this is a forever thing so I have to find a balance between what works and what I can live with. I just have to take it one day at a time (I know I'm spewing cliches) because if I start thinking about how much weight I have to lose and how long it's going to take and how much work is ahead of me it gets really discouraging.

I try to remind myself that the alternative is to not do anything and that's really an even more frightening and overwhelming prospect.

I just joined minutes ago and I'm scared because now it means I really have to do something and change. Something happens when I write goals down instead of just thinking about them. And now putting it out to the world. Yikes!

Hi everyone. I'm new to sp. I have also been overweight almost all of my life. I gained a lot of weight during my last pregnancy which was three years ago and I have not lost any of it. I'm a nurse so when I tell people the reason for their illness is related to them being over weight I can feel their eyes judging me. It's just time for me to start feeling better and to start living myself again.

My name is Rachel and I found this site on a support group page. I just got married last month and was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome. I need to get my weight down but my hormones are fighting against me. Hope this can help me get this disease under control.

Hi everyone! I'm Brandi and I joined a few days ago. I need to lose 90 lbs and am trying to set small goals to help me along the way. I was reading up on the spark activity tracker and was wondering if anyone has it and how they like it. I will be starting off with Leslie Sansone's walking videos.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

My life long journey begins now.

Hello everyone, I'm Blake, came across this site by accident while checking out some vegan food blogs. I suppose I've had a problem with my weight and food most of my life. It's always shooting up and down. I've gone from 210 to 298 in a little over 6 months before. I've got about 50 pounds to lose to get to my target weight of 200, and hoping to keep it off this time!

Hi. New to SparkPeople. Still finding my way around.

I'm from New Zealand, currently living in NSW, Australia. I have 20kg to lose. I have a lot of knowledge about what I need to do, but very little motivation! Time to change that emoticon

Welcome Natasha and Michael!

Although I have kept active on SP all along, I definitely have been on and off as far as my program goes. I lost a lot of weight, put almost all of it back on, and am now losing again. This time for good - I am getting too old to keep doing this!

Hey!
My name is Emma, I'm 24 years old. I love anything that glitters and put Christmas lights up the day after Halloween.
I have been over weight for as long as I can remember. I'm sick of waiting for fate to come and take my fat away, I'm aiming to lose 80lbs.. I'm really hoping to meet some friends on Spark who we can support each other to the end!
