Hi I just joined SparkPeople because I am tired of paying for weight loss programs when you just have to be dedicated and consistence. My goal is to lose at least 50 lbs by next summer. I want to come completely off diabetes meds. I have been going to gym 3 days per week and my goal is to continue and add 2 days of exercise at home. Try to eat healthy. I do get bored with healthy, however hopfully tracking my meals will help.

Hi all! I'm not a "newbie" but I am coming back full force ahead!!

I'm a married mom of three, very busy, and a personal/private chef. I am on the road to losing 65 pounds by years end. I lost 35 pounds in 2011 but have gained back 15 pounds. My goal weight is 150 or a size 8, whichever comes first, LOL. I am now more focused, dedicated and disciplined. I keep several journals of my food and exercise on my phone. I now exercise 45 minutes via Just Dance on Wii. Wow, I didn't realize you get a good work out from that game!!! Anywho, I will resume walking on a regular basis once the weather breaks.

I know we can do it!!! I have faith in all of you! If we all stick together and motivate one another, it can be done!! Good luck ladies!!! emoticon emoticon

Hello Sasuev,

Your definitely going to do it!!!!!

This is your time.

I too have been in this group for quite some time now but not very consistently, disciplined or committed.

It's for me to stop visualizing my weight loss/healthy living dream/desire but begin to be a part in making it my reality. I too, don't wish to be skinny...I love curves and I want to get to a happy peaceful place with who I am in my skin.

I will definitely seize the opportunity and really rely on this team for support. Perhaps if I had done so in the past, I would be at my physical happy place. But I'm a firm believer, timing is everything; and this is definitely my time.

Good luck with your journey!!!! Praying for and with you.

Hi, I'm Martha from Maryland and even though I joined spark people in 2008 I've just start using it since last Friday. I saw this group and decided to join it. I retired in 2007 and started a homebased travel business and do taxes seasonally. My life is very busy but because diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol are prevalent in my family, I need to really concentrate on losing about 50 lbs to be at goal weight and to drop all the pre this nd that from my medical history. emoticon

Hi Everyone.
I've been on SP around 18 months. I initially lost weight, but regained it over the past year. So I'm starting over. I hope to connect to other Black women, because I know we have similar struggles.

Hello Everyone,

I'm not really new to SP. I'm just new to being active on SP. I signed up a very long time ago and just decided it's time for me to focus on myself and better health. I just graduated with my first degree so better health is the gift I chose for myself. So here I go on this new journey!!! emoticon

Hi everyone! I am new to SP ready to stay motivated on this journey. I am a Navy veteran so a little something about exercise and nutrition. I have gained weight since I was discharged from the military due to a number of factors and now it's time to say goodbye to the excess weight. I will be adding you all as friends because I am aware that at some point I will need you to give me a swift kick in butt.

Hey Ladies,


Just a another introduction to the team. I joined a while back, but just couldn't seem to get it together. So this time I'm starting my weight loss journey again and this time I will not be defeated by self doubt or anything else.

Just a little bit about me just turned 30 a couple months ago. God blessed me with my first child this year, and I teach.

Hello, I am a returning Spark Member and need all the support I can get. Last week I started a 7 week weight loss challenge at work and to my amazement I lost a pound - not what I wanted it to be, but I'll take it.

Please send me any and all words of support and encouragement, my goal is to lose at least 15 lbs. by March 7. emoticon

Much success Alysha. I joined this summer and have just now (yesteday) started keeping track of the food that I eat at each meal. I want to lose 30 pounds by the end of October. I will have to do better about logging in and using the instruments that are available to help all of us be successful.

Hi everyone, my name is Alysha and I am 23 years old. I'm trying to lose 53 pounds to get myself down to a comfortable 135. I'm just shy of two weeks old to Spark People and I lost 2lbs in my first week, just as the tracker told me I would! So, now since I believe I want to get active in some groups that are important to me so I can stay on track.

Anyways, I would love to get to know some of you so we can stick together to meet our goals!

Hi everyone!

I'm new to Spark People (joined yesterday). Looking to loose 40-50 lbs that came with 2 pregnancies. I realized that I could no longer use the "it's baby weight" excuse anymore...the youngest is 5! This team seems like a very positive and motivating group of women.

Hi Everyone!

It is so good to see women of color encouraging each other! This site as you all have mentioned helped out before and I don't know why I turned my back on it. But I'm back now, ready and willing to help anyone and everyone achieve their goal as well as mine. All we have to do is stay committed and keep praying! I'm not going to wish anyone luck but I will pray much success for all of us!

If you need a virtual buddy please feel free to message me! (I owe much of my weight loss to a workout buddy)

Right now, I am just being lazy. Some may say my metabolism has slowed down since I am much older since I lost 50 lbs. about 5 years ago. But the truth is I am not doing what I did 5 years ago; sticking to a low carb diet, aerobics 2-3 times a week; walking, walking and more walking; and so on. Now I think of those things as I eat a 12 pack of oatmeal raisin pecan cookies in one setting. I need help, this time I can't seem to do it alone

All of the above is what I added to my sparkpeople homepage. I'm really looking forward to using this website and meeting new members. As much I as I hope to be encouraged, I hope to also encourage.

Keish,

Congratulations on your new baby! I'm an April baby too, as in my daughter!

Welcome back to SP! I also had tremendous success with SP my first go round and I intend to be equally successful this time AND keep the weight off.

Good luck to you on your journey!

Hi there ladies-

My name is Keish (29yrs). I joined SP in 2007 & had success with my weight loss, losing 45lbs! Well in 2010 I became pregnant with my first child, born April 2011. Unfortunately I was one of those unlucky ladies that got stuck with the unexpected weight gain leaving me with 68lbs to lose!!!!!! I have never weighed so much in my life. Like others have stated, I am looking for a team that is active. I'm in need of a team that will help motivate me through this venture of mine. I can use the extra support. Over the past month I've joined a few teams but the activity is very sparse. So I decided to join this team for some extra motivation, support & to meet new people.
I wish you all success & look forward to cheering each other on. Take care!!

Hello ladies -

I'm new to the team, but not new to SP. I'm looking for an active team; one with lots of members and lots of chatting to keep me motivated.

I'm a runner - actually after falling off the SparkWagon, I'm a walker/jogger but I'm getting my mojo back - and within the next 12 months, I want to go to Philadelphia and run the route Rocky Balboa took the art museum. I know, way corny, but it's something I've always wanted to accomplish. From his house and back, it's about 17 miles. When I get to the top of the steps, I'm gonna do a little shadow boxing and when I'm done, I'm going to NYC for some shopping (My name is Toni and I am a shoe fiend).

I'm a recent Durham, NC transplant; I moved from Cleveland, OH about a month ago and I'm just settling in and wrapping my mind around this heat! I love to garden, I love to bake, I love to read and nap. I love playing Scrabble and The Sims.

I'm happy to be here and hope to make some good and lasting SparkFriends!

My name is Rae and I subscribed to this site in August of 2010. However, I am just getting started actually using the wonderful tools the site has to offer. A year later, I am excited about losing 30-40 pounds. If you cannot tell, however, I am a procrastinator when it comes to diet and exercise.

Its my hope to obtain encouragement to achieve my weight loss goals and in the process encourage others.

God Bless!!

Hi everybody!!!
My name is Raquel and I have been on SP for 2 weeks. I have set gradual weight loss goals for myself because I know this is journey to get to where I want to be. My motto is something I found in a fortune cookie
" If you always do what you have always done then you will always get what you have always gotten"

I am looking for SP Friends to motivate and encourage each other on this path. Please stop my page and add me as a friend!

Enjoy the journey.. it is a ride worth taking!

Welcome all Newbies

We can do this. We are in this together. Take it one day at a time.

Watch me closely, Lord. I'm hungry, and I'm weak.

Blessing to all the new and old members... We can do this!!! I had a slight set back but I am still going strong! Teaching summer school and taking a class can be stressful. It's real easy to go back to the old habits. I get a lot of motivation from reading your comments!

Hi, my name is Tina and I am glad I found this group. I've been struggling for a while trying to lose weight. I have started eating clean and have been exercising at least 3 times a week since early May. This looks like a great place to come to for support!
