emoticon Hey there!
I'm Niamh and i live in Cork. Its so nice to see so many Irish people on this site! I've been gaining a lot of weight over the years -especially lately!- and i've finally put my foot down today when i weighed in at 12 stone.
I lack a strong will though so a lot of motivation and tips from all my new irish friends would be great! emoticon
Thanks!

Hi Team!

I am an American Ex Pat living in the south of Dublin. I just moved in August of last year, and am getting married in October this year (back in the States). I'm looking to lose about 30 lbs between now and then and hoping some team interaction will help me want to stick with it. I've worked with SparkPeople before, several times, and not had much success. This time will be different though.

Talk to you soon!
Maureen

My goodness we are getting all these new members but they are not following up on the sign up. I am not sure if they are leaving once they sign up for they are just not following through on the join. I wish it could be simpler so there would be no problems. We could use a group of new people in here.

Good Morning Colleen, it's great to have you here with us. I know the ups and downs of getting weight off and back on like a roller coaster but we have to keep plugging away at it for a healthier and happier life.

I am not trying to get back to my old self just to a place where I can be happy as I am. I think you have come to a purpose in your life where you feel the same way. Having the excess weight just puts a damper on our everyday living and slows us down.

I am glad you have decided to give SPARK a second chance. I for one will do all I can to encourage you and help you along the way on your journey. I am sure I will learn a lot and find support in you also.


Welcome to the Team Irish Members.

Hi everyone, My name is Colleen and I have been on spark since 2012. I have been absent for awhile but am trying to get back. I didn't join to much the last time and this time I want to be more involved and motivated. I was able to lose 40lbs, but unfortunately 3 surgeries and a couple of losses, I gained it back plus an extra 20 or so. I am comitted again and think joining some teams will help keep me on track. It's good to meet all of you and I hope I can help some of you motivate as well. Have a blessed day!

Today is my best day and tomorrow can only be better

I am neither catholic or protestant and find it appalling that the Irish are still fighting over that issue. I love all things Irish but have never been to Ireland. I am one half Irish (SHEEHAN) from the county CORK in the south of Ireland, but I have no preference on north or south. I would love to go to Ireland and discover my heritage someday before I die, but well into my senior years that might and might not be happening. I would love to see both the north and south although I think I would enjoy the south more only because the weather I hear is a bit warmer on the inlet side of the island. I want to see the ocean on the cliffs but as far as entertaining I think a little calmer climate would be better suited for me. I would love to walk the hills and roads of Ireland but my legs would no longer permit that so ...if I were to go I would be visiting as a tourist in a car (no bus) and seeing all the great castles and cottages of Ireland.

My name is Joanna; I grew up and Michigan with and Irish father and an Indian mother from Kentucky. Well grew up is the wrong word let's just leave it as they were my parents. I have one full sister that also loves everything Irish. We collect all the little trinkets throughout the years and a collections of boxes and wardrobe items. We think we can copy the dialect but only a true Irish person would know if we do that or not.

I am here to meet and greet Irish souls and hope to find some wonderful friends over the internet.

Ta thee top of da mornin ta ya!

Gee I hope your team leader returns or someone steps up to the challenge!

I hail from across the pond in Canada. Your group interested me, for several reasons:

1.
Grandmother born mid 1800 in Ireland
2.
Grandfather born mid 1800 in England
They arrived in Canada in the late 1800
3.
I am planning a trip to Ireland & England before I croak, well it is on my bucket list.

I was widowed 33 years ago, raised my daughter, she married and has a home and lives close by. My pride and joy is my grand daughter.

Hello everyone! My name is Nina and I'm from Raleigh, North Carolina. I'm 28 soon to be 29 in March married with one beautiful son. I've been on Sparkpeople for a few years now on and off, but just recently decided to get serious about my health and weight after being diagnosed with arthritis at this young age and watching my mother dying from not taking care of herself. I've accomplished many goals, lost 50 pounds and dropped 3 pants sizes now the challenging part is losing the last 80 some to reach my healthy weight. Can't wait to meet all of you and be a part of your journey!

The grass isn't greener on the other side it's greener where you water it!

Hello everyone emoticon

I'm Maggie, 35 from Dublin. I have been a member of SP for years but hitting 35 has made me realise I have to start doing something about my weight NOW.

I have about 3 stone ish to lose, I'm not following any diet plan, just trying to be sensible and keep everything in moderation. I am exercising - a combo of walking and running. Hoping to run the Mini Marathon in June and from there who knows? emoticon

Looking forward to chatting with you all and sharing in your journeys

Hi All,
Peter from Dundalk, I'm 52, male and want to lose a few kilo's ,well the beer belly specifically !! too much watching the footie over the last few weeks. I'd like to get rid of about 15kg by Christmas. I gave up the smokes in January so its been creeping on since them. This site seems great so far - I only joined yesterday - but I'm new to this whole measuring / calories stuff thought I'm getting great advice and help from my wife. I like the 'My Nutrition' section to register your eating and see how you are getting on.
Anyway off for a walk now,
Cheer's

Hi everybody. I'm Gerri from Cork. I'm 40 (waaaah!!) I really need to lose weight before my thyroid goes underactive so that I cope with the changed metabolism better.

I'm useless at exercise, and find running for one minute has me panned out! I'm not allowed exercise at the moment as my resting heartrate is too high. So I'm sitting on the couch and snacking worse than EVER! My sleep is totally erratic. I've had 3 hours tonight. So I'm generally exhausted during the day and grab the odd nap if I can drop off on the couch.

I'm really hoping SparkPeople will help me get on track. :)

Hi folks,

I'm Jen and I'm looking for some support and motivation to change my lifestyle and lose weight.
I've always been big and so I figure I need to change a lot about myself in order to become the person I've always wanted to be.
I'm living in Dublin.

Looking forward to getting to know you all.

Hi All, I'm Orla, from Dublin, but living in Toronto now. I just read the joke page and would love to go through this weight loss journey with a bit of humour. Lovely to read your introductions. I will be in Dublin for a wedding in May and I want to be able to go into the shops and just pick out a couple of pretty dresses. To do that I have to stop eating Taytos!

Hi all, I'm a Laura as well, and I'm here because I need to lose a lot of weight, I'm horrified at how bad I've let myself go - so I need as much help as I can get :(

Hiya, just found this team, Been on Sparkpeople for a few months now and find it very motivating. I live in Northern Ireland and travel regularly to Mayo. Hope everyone is having a good start to the week and enjoying healthy eating and exercising. (Looking forward to a snowfight later when the children home from school!!).

My God loves me, he shelters me from harm.

Hi Everyone! I'm Laura from Mayo. I am 27 and I am fed up of not fitting into the lovely clothes and dresses I used to wear. Also I have been constantly sick with colds and infections that I just can't get rid of for the last two months and I am convinced it is because I am not getting enough exercise (or any).
I work at a desk job and drive to and from work, most of my evenings and weekends are spent doing volunteer work which means I find it hard to find time to exercise as I am always exhausted. Well, today I am feeling the best physically that I have for a while, and it wasn't raining (for a change) so I went for a 30min brisk walk through my lunch break instead of surfing online :) I am hoping sparkpeople will help to keep me motivated and that maybe I can help motivate others.

Ah, the paddling! Catching pinkeens in a jam jar! Wasn't it a great facility for the summer?

Hi! I'm Jason! I'm sorry if I'm posting this wrong, I'm easily confused by internet related activities. I'm 22 and after a six month lull in my weight loss goals I'm starting to try really hard to get going again. Nice to see an Irish page on here. It made everything less terrifying. Also, I know I'm probably late to the party on this one, but the emoticons here are AMAZING. Example: emoticon

Thanks for contacting me, you are so kind.

I am still not doing well at losing weight, in fact I gained 2 pounds! This is essentially because the cravings for nicotine are assuaged by eating. I am not disheartened , I will stick at my tracking and I am sure it will come good.

How are you getting on?

Hello Doddery. Welcome to the team. I don't usually find anyone around my age. I'm in my 60s too. I'm impressed, went off nicotine cold turkey. How are you doing now? Good luck.

Hello,

63 year old male here, in Dublin. My handle refers to a river which runs through my part of town!

Am struggling to get the weight down. I recently "cold turkeyed" myself off nicotine replacement products and have jumped half a stone,

I hope this site will help me cleave to the straight and narrow!

Hey, I'm Sonya from Limerick. I'm 30 and live with my husband and our 4 cats :) I've been losing weight since this time last year and I have 15.5lbs left to go. I joined for some help losing these last few pounds andto help me maintain (or maybe lose a few more?) when I reach that goal.

BTW, where do you get the trackers?

hi i joined a few weeks ago and have done nothing about loosing the weight since i joined, but now am into the size 18 clothes and am only a tiny little thing in height so its time to ...take the nose out of the horse bag and cop on (so to speak). not looking good though, as i type this am eating a bag of crisps!!! but really want to loose the weight, feel fat - look fat and tired of feeling and looking this way, love the summer but they thought of the beach, swimming etc....i hope we all get what we want out of this, wouldnt it be great if we all reached target weights...

Hi my name is Carol and I am from Cork. I eat pretty healthily but have a weakness for tasty treats. I am currently a size 16 and would love to be a 12 or 10. I have found Spark really useful, especially for showing me how bad those treats really are. Anyway happy to help others and equally I wouldn't mind a Spark Buddy. Anyone here from Cork?
