Hi and Thank You for inviting me! I'm 53, married and I've been at Sparkpeople before, but I was not in the right place to really do this. I am now! I need to lose weight, but even more so I want to gain control of my health. I've had Sarcoidosis in my lungs (in remission, but left me with limited lung capacity) and I' m a diabetic. I'm really excited about the changes I'm about to make.

My Name is Teressa.

I'm a MOTHER of 3 sons, and a first time Grandmother of a DGS and wife of 14 1/2 years..

My DH has early stage Alzheimer's, and it gets hard sometimes, and kinda lonely. I haven't found a team that offers much support for that....

Hi and thanks for inviting me to the team. I am 57 years old, married and grandma to 4 beautiful children, 8, 5, 5 and 2 months. Last year I was told by my doctor that I was pre-diabetic. You would think that would have scared me but it didn't and I didn't do anything about it. This week I got my blood work back and the levels were higher. Change my eating habits, lose weight and continue to take my meds the doctor said. I also have high cholesterol and high blood pressure. So here I am again to finally make and keep this commitment to myself to get healthy. Two years ago I lost 70 pounds with the help of groups on SP and I am determined to do it again, since I gained it all back. The diabetes diagnosis is getting to me because I just don't know what to eat and not eat anymore. I have been researching everywhere.

Hi! My name is Andrea.

I'm 44 and I'm in the middle of my weight loss journey. I have 70 pounds to lose by my 46th birthday. I have high cholesterol, low thyroid, GERD, Bipolar Disorder, and my mom died of Diabetes Type I, and I'm afraid of developing Diabetes Type II, though all my screenings have come back negative (so far).

I live in Illinois with my beau, Alex, and my 12-year-old cat, Sophia.

I'm active in both Alcoholics Anonymous and Overeaters Anonymous. I have 9 years' sober from alcohol and drugs; I'm still struggling to obtain abstinence from compulsive eating.

Thanks to Marj for inviting me to this Team!

Looking forward to getting to know all of you!

Blessings.
Andrea

Thank you for the invitation.


I have been a member of Sparks people since 2009, Back then I lost the weight I needed to, then life threw me a curve ball and I forgot to do all the things I learned. Now I am back and refocused on my goals. I recently retired so I have the time needed for exercise, no excuses now. I am hoping by losing the weight and exercising daily I will avoid going on any medication. I am pre-diabetic and have high Cholesterol. So that is my motivation to lose the pounds.

Thanks again for the invite

I'm new! Thanks for the invite, Puppies4me. My last check-up showed that I am borderline diabetic and I'm trying to reverse that. Losing weight has always been a struggle for me, but I keep trying. Sparkpeople has been the best of anything I've tried so far. I love the encouragement (and the points!)

Hi I'm Karly. I'm a new member of the team. Trying hard to get healthier for myself and for my future family (ttc). I am in the middle of my twenties and have high blood pressure. My doctor is pretty sure it is heredity and will probably still have high blood pressure if i lose some weight. I still think it is worth it to try and lose weight and see if it helps so I don't have to continue to keep taking meds. Plus just getting healthier and losing weight will make me feel better and I would love to just be healthier.

Thanks for the very warm welcome.

I'm retired and am now making ME a priority. I started this journey 1 & 1/2 years ago. I've been a SparkPeople member for a while but an active member for about that long. I'm a member of the Changing my Lifestyle is a Challenge team, the Book Club team (love to read), and today rejoined the 8-week Diabetes Weight-Loss Challenge team. I need to refocus and recommit to controlling my diabetes through diet and exercise instead of medication. I complete the challenge once before, but I thought I would do no harm by completing it again.

I joined this team because I also am on medication for high cholesterol and high blood pressure. All conditions are under control through medication, but I want to do more for myself than take pills; I want to make myself healthier.

Thanks for the active and supportive team,
Madonna

I'm 30 and I have the start of an aortic aneurysm. The cardiologist says it's not time to operate yet but the best thing I can do for myself is to lose weight and get my blood pressure under control. My checks in the last few weeks have been in the 119/79-128/84 range. Cardio-doc says those are good to borderline for anyone else but he wants to see mine lower, 100/60-110/70. He started me on a low dose of Losartan and sent me off to the nutritionist with recommendations to aim for a low sodium diet and 30-60 minutes daily of low impact activity that raises my heart rate into the 120-130bpm range but not OVER 130 for more than 5 minutes.

Thanks for the invite! I'm back to SparkPeople after a hiatis while I was pregnant. I lost 20lbs before I got pregnant, and now have 30lbs to get back down to that weight. I have high blood pressure and pre-diabetic, but my cholesterol is good (silver lining right?). Hoping to get some tips in getting my numbers back where the belong and lose some weight along the way!

Hi, I'm retired and looking to lose quite a bit of weight. I have already lost a 100 pounds. I need about 50 more. Right now I am struggling trying to balance carbs and calories. I am diabetic so carbs are important. I need all the encouragement I can get. Looking forward to sharing.

I joined this team yesterday after finding out about it. Like many, I have cardiac issues and am concerned with living the healthiest life possible. I had an MI and an Angioplasty 2 years ago. Since then they have found an Ascending Aortic Aneurysm. This is being watched and by several cardiologists and It will have to be operated on when it enlarges to a certain size.
I am looking forward to being part of this team and hope to learn from the experiences of others as well as offer any insight I might have from my experiences.

emoticon from the plains of Colorado. I want to thank Marj for inviting me to the team. I can already see it's going to be a good experience.

I've had high bp in the past and elevated cholesterol. My brother is diabetic so I try to eat like a pre-diabetic. dh was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes so I've been paying extra attention to labels and eating "his way". We were doing well anyway, but there were, and still are, things to learn as we eat our way to better health.

My goal is to get down to a healthy BMI. The charts say that is about 25 pounds away, give or take.

Happy to meet y'all.

emoticon Thanks for the invitation to join Marj! I look forward to being part of this team!!

I am 65, married and recently retired. I have lived in New Jersey my entire life.

I originally joined Spark in 2007, left once or twice and came back again in 2013 when the weight started coming back. I want to get to my goal weight and stay there once and for all. I want to make healthy eating and exercise an everyday event for me emoticon emoticon

Thanks, Marj. And I love the picture of your puppy. BTW, I took the check mark off of my Spark Page as you suggested. Please tell me if you see anything else. I really appreciate it.

Hugs,

Hi,

I'm Penny and I am from Mystic, CT. I am on cholesterol meds and I watch my intake of bad carbs and fats. I just had a nuclear stress test. My heart is strong and I have no clogged arteries. So, I want to make sure that everything stays that way.

Looking forward to lots of great chats and support. I also look forward to supporting other members of this team in achieving my goals. Thanks for inviting me.

Penny emoticon emoticon
