Hello, I just joined a few days ago, looking for the support I seriously lack at home, and a little motivation in life to do what I have to and be happy with myself. I need a lot of help in all those departments! So, I'm excited (really) to be joining here with so many wonderful people!

I am excited about this group. I am trying to get ready for my first 5-K I have always loved making my own beauty stuff. I love fashion etc. I have 4 kids I like to stay busy I am active in my church, I do have very sensitive skin so I have to be very careful what I use. I suffer from rosacea so it is a challenge to control that and train. Especially with this super hot weather. I am looking forward to getting great tips from all of you.

Hey everyone!! I've been a member of SP for a few years now, but haven't utilized it for a while... I've decided to give it another go and get a little more involved this time! I'm a stay at home mom of 2 boys, ages 11 and 7. Our family has recently joined a gym and are taking full advantage of everything it has to offer! My ultimate goal is to lose about 100 lbs, but a short term goal of mine is to lose 30 lbs by my birthday (August 11th). I guess I'm just looking for a little support and motivation! I'm sure I can find it here emoticon

Hi my name is Stephanie and I turned 41 in December. I kicked off this year feeling really good about my goals and have been enjoying life. But its hard to maintain without many friends, well actually I don't have any close friends in my town... sooo I am reaching out here and do hope that I can find a friend and give my friendship. I am a busy entreprenuer who works from home and I get very lonely for a girls chat. I am now under 70kg and am so proud of myself as fittness and healthy living finally become a lifestyle rather than a short term fix.

So Hi! and do drop me a line if you want to be friends :O)

emoticon My name is Malissa & I just turned 40 this year. I have been on SP since January, because I want to get healthy & lose weight. I refuse to call this a "diet" because I've always failed at diets. I am make a lifestyle change & eating healthy. I would love to get back to taking the time on my appearance as well this year. I don't want to be the "plain jane" anymore. I used to wear make-up every day & loved the way it looked, now I want to get back to that & fell good about myself & the steps I'm taking to live longer & healthier.

Hi, I have really sort of "decided without deciding"not to spend too much effort on my looks....but I am tired of it! trouble is, I have very little energy, so maintaining anything is difficult....want to be beautiful inside and out. The weight is ugly, both spiritually and physically. I think working on both my appearance and weight would be good. When I think about putting on makeup, I think oh, at this weight and age, who wants to be "self involved and vain" fighting this..soooo..I actually went to a spa, and wow! want to go back!

Hi Amethyst (love that name emoticon ), it's great that you are fighting with cancer, instead of surrender (gosh, I sound like in a battle, haha). I wish you all the best for reaching your aim and happy hairy!

Greetings from Las Vegas. I'm Amethyst and I have been a member Spark People for three years. I have had my ups and downs, but this is the best program I have ever used in my long history of trying to lose weight.

Thanks to a recent bout of cancer(and winning) I have lost a lot of weight. Now that my appetite is back and I can actually taste things again, as well as celebrating being cancer free, I have put 10 pounds back on. I have no regrets over the gain, however I refuse to regain any more. It is the one of the gifts being ill gave me and I am NOT going to waste it! I just received "The Spark" today in the mail! After all my chores are done for the day, I will settle down and begin reading!


I have always believed that inner beauty is more important than outer beauty. That being said,I know that how I look, how I present myself is important to me. Now that I am finished with chemo and I am feeling oh so much better, I actually care how I look again! My hair, eyebrows and eyelashes are growing! *LOL* I am just now comfortable with going without my head scarves and actually feel if not beautiful, then pretty.

Enough rambling...sorry about that! *Grins* It's what I do. Have a wonder*full day!




Love, Light and Laughter,
Ame

Hi everyone!

I've been on SP about 2 weeks now after spending about a year and a half on Weight Watchers Online. I'd lost about 20 pounds, gained some back over the holidays, and just needed something fresh and new to get me going again.

Looking forward to getting to know all of you!

Life took a sudden swerve about 9 years ago....and I am a lucky lady (blessed incredibly!) to be here. But the downside is I had to retire, and my lifelong struggle with weight has escalated since I dont' have the busy lifestyle I used to have. I'm working hard to make the outside of me match the person inside....and I work just as hard to keep the inside person as beautiful as I can. So I can use all the support I can get and I love the fact that all of you ladies here are beautiful! emoticon

Hi, I'm Elyssa and I just turned 18 (jan 14) and I want to start my adult life off right :)
I want to loose about 20 pounds, but in general I just want to be a healthier person. :)
I'm really energetic but I often loose focus really fast, and then I steer off a little, so I'm hoping joining into this will help me stay focused, healthy and happy :)

I would like to make some friends to help encourage me along, I do not have very much help at home...unfortunately. So I am turning to Spark People to help me meet my goals and stay on track. I look forward to making new friends and losing the weight!

Hi I'm Smithbet!

I have recreated myself in the last year and a half and I hope I can inspire others. I am a mom of five and had let myself go because I was so busy being a mom. Well, it took catching my husband cheating on me to turn it all around for me. I went from 225 in Nov 07 to 165 currently. Losing weight was great but even before I lost the weight I changed. I did my hair, wore makeup again, threw away all of my ratty things I wore around the house and got some sexy things to wear. I looked better and felt sexier before I lost any weight. I want to recommend that to everyone. Don't wait until you lose the weight. Start today being the most gorgeous you can be because you are beautiful extra weight or not!

Hello!

My name is YY. I've been going through life transitions (professionally and personally), and one of the major things I'd like to achieve during this process is self-confidence. I have never felt pretty, beautiful, or sexy. And I haven't really taken care of myself since I got married.

I have so many things on my plate now (including some health issues), but I'm hoping that joining this team will help me gain self-confidence :-)

Nice to meet you all!

Hello!! My name is Hope...After a brutal, but honest, meeting with a trainer, its time to make a "life change." I just got married ( a size 16 dress! ) and I'm thinking I need to work on a lot! I need drastic changes to happen... Hopefully this month I can maintain going to the gym 5 days a week. Thats my big goal for this month. The rest will follow!!

Hello Beautiful Ladies! Im Jessica, 21yrs old, and making major adjustments to my lifestyle. This group especially stuck out to me as I was browsing because its a group of women who appreciate real beauty of all shapes and sizes. Im relatively new to SP and im trying to become an active member of multiple support teams. I dont have many other women around me who are going through similar issues as I am, and I think these groups are wonderful for the support they bring, as I will be supportive of all of you! So happy to be making this journey.

Hello everyone! I've been a SparkPeople member for a while, but I recently decided to be more involved. I'm here to lose weight, become more healthy, and gain some love and appreciation for myself. I am to hard on myself and I'm trying to substitute "ugly" thoughts with "beautiful" thoughts about myself!

Afternoon everyone! As others have said, I'm not new to SP but I'm new here. I restarted with a new profile etc... with the intent to be consistently active and completely committed to this process I'm starting.

I'm 39, newlywed of 1 year and married to my best friend. He loves me no matter what, and I'm grateful for that, but I want to love the physical me... so it's time to pull up my boot straps and actually do this...

I'm looking forward to meeting everyone and supporting/being supported here.


Have a great day!

Hello Everyone!
I am Shannon, 32 yr old single female. I have been apart of SP for almost a year now ,but most recently became more active in the last 10 weeks. I have lost almost 15 lbs in these last 10 weeks and I firmly know that SP has helped me tremendously along the way.
I work in the medical field at a dr's office drawing blood and doing referrals to other specialists and doctor's. I also finished up EMT school last May and I am hoping to pursue on with that here in the near future.
I am a very easy going person, whom loves life and enjoys most anything outdoors and that brings a smile to my face.
I am glad to be here and can't wait to get to know some of you.

Hi everyone! I agree that you have to enjoy the process of weight loss. I've definitely noticed that the better I feel about myself (and for better or worse my appearance has a big effect on that) the more motivated I am to lose weight. I work in a pretty male-dominated profession, so I definitely appreciate the opportunity to girl it up a bit when I get home!

Ahhh...introductions and the decision on what to share and what not to! I guess I'll be brave and tell all (those faint of heart, please look away from the thread!)

My name is Rachel, I'm 32 and a newly wed. I've found a surreal bliss with my husband. We have a connection that is hard to explain, a love for one another that runs deep and all is based on a level of respect not around in any other relationship I've been in, including my first marriage!
Between the two of us we have three children, my two boys and his daughter, all under the age of 8.
I work full time, on shift work no less, in an industry that is typically male. It's blue collar work in a chemical factory. (I'm like Homer Simpson, except I have more hair and a better figure than he does!)
In my spare time, when I'm not chasing kids or working, I also have recently begun pursuing a long time passion of mine: Writing. I started a few years ago writing for a radio station morning show, then I moved on and wrote a novel and three children's books. I'm currently working on my second novel, and it's going rather well.
I've been a member of Spark for a bit over a year now. In that time I've lost about 25 pounds! Hooray!
The strange part of this journey is that I have found that the less I weigh, the less sure of my appearance I am. I used to run around at 200 pounds happy as a clam and feeling fine. Now 30 pounds lighter I find I'm much more critical of myself. Not that I want to gain the weight back either...at this point if I stop eating well for more than a day or two, I feel like junk and get back to business right away.
I also am celebrating my 37th day smoke free after 17 years of tobacco slavery!

I saw this team and had to join. I need to learn a few things for myself: How to accept the new body I have created for myself. As well as how to not lose my feminine side because I work with a bunch of roughnecks! this team looks like the place I might be able to do both of those!

I know this was long winded, for those of you who didn't get bored from the start, thanks! And for those who did...don't worry about it, I'm not usually this wordy!

Hi everyone, I am a 62 year old retired woman. I don't think I am that old until I look in the mirror and try to do things that I could do in half the time 10 years ago. There is this song by Kellee Pickler ,I think it is " Don't you know you are Beautiful". It has a good message.
Everyone is beautiful in the eyes of God everyone has there own special qualities.
I am very glad I have found this group. emoticon emoticon

Hello everyone. I am a stay at home mom of 3 girls.5,2,1. I really do not feel pretty. My husband tells me regularly that I am, but I just don't feel it. I do not put on make up to stay around the house. Since having kids I struggle to take me time. I feel like I just do not have enough time to give to me. Everyone comes before me. I am trying to learn to take that me time now. I want to be healthy again.

Hi! Over the decades I have gone from being fit and well groomed to sloppy and disheveled. I want to spend the last few decades being one of those aging people who look like they care about themselves. And I just realized I don't have to wait until I'm the perfect weight to do it...

Hi everyone! My name is Erica, and I am really excited about the journey that I am on. So far I have lost 16lbs!
I am a recently graduated college student who will be starting my career in less than two weeks. Up until now, everything has always been about my grades. Through college, I gained a ton of weight from late night munchies and left over pizza. Now that I'm done with that, I really want to start to focus on myself.

I only recently bought a mirror (seriously), and I've started the process of learning how to care for myself. I know that my job will help me with this a great deal, it comes with an excellent health care plan and discounts to local gyms and stores that sell gym equipment. The money won't hurt either, I know I can use it to buy clothing that fits better and indulge in a few nice things for myself.

I am already starting to feel more beautiful everyday, and I look forward to working with other people in this group to spread the beautiful spark!

emoticon I wanted to stop by and say hello to everyone! I originally joined Sparkpeople in March 2006, but ended up leaving when my wonderful mom passed away suddenly and I started having many personal problems. I went through a divorce last year and I'm now with a wonderful boyfriend who is the most caring, loving and supportive sweetheart and we're losing together. I've managed to lose some weight slowly and now I was excited to find Sparkpeople again and get my life back on track. I love to meet new friends and I'm excited to be here and get to know all of you:) emoticon

Sometimes I have felt beautiful...sometimes not. What is clear to me is that part of feeling beautiful is caring for yourself. I have completely forgotten to do that for the last few years.

My goal now is to treat myself well. Part of treating myself well includes eating healthy food , exercising, and making time for myself. This includes looking good.

I have never considered weight loss and healthy living to be a luxury. For some reason it seems that way to me now. When I go to SP it is like going to a spa. I feel like it's time just for me...and it feels great.

People tell me that I am beautiful but I just don't really feel it because I am overweight. That's why I have joined SP so that i can lose weight and stay motivated. I want to feel beautiful.

Well, now I feel even LESS beautiful, sexy and gorgeous after my BF physically hurt me last night.

Oh, well.

This sounds strange, but here goes ...

I am told I am beautiful, sexy and gorgeous.

I don't FEEL beautiful, sexy or gorgeous. Never have. (OK, maybe for a minute or two here and there, but not consistently, not for a whole hour or a whole day.)

I'm looking for people with whom I can explore this and bring it out, so I feel it, embrace it, know it.

I don't know how, I have no idea what to do.

Hello ladies emoticon

My name is Kristen. I'm 33 and a SAHM of 2 girls: Emory who is 19 mths and LyAnne is 9.

I am trying to lose a total of about 80 lbs and I know it will take time to do so. However I do struggle with self esteem these days due to how big I've gotten. My husband loves me for who I am, but I still want to look sexy again...like when we met!

Also, I seriously have been slacking in the "taking care of ME" area. I hate to admit this, but there are several nights that I don't wash my face before bed...or brush my teeth, Ewwww!! Forget putting lotion on after a shower; don't have the time. My skin is taking a serious beating these days. And, with a toddler running around, I'm lucky to even get a full shower daily. Forget putting on make up or fixing my hair...I only do this when we're going somewhere like church or out to dinner or shopping. My days usually just consist of going to the gym and/or walmart so I don't get all fixed up to do either. But, I feel like my hubby would appreciate it if I were a little more "put together" on those off days.

I need a little push in those areas. I spend all day picking up after Emory and keeping the house clean...but it's time to start taking time for myself. I'm looking forward to meeting you lovelies and learning some new beauty secrets!

Hi everyone!

Looking my best and making the most of what I have has always been important to me. Some people think it's too important to me!

I am not a natural beauty, yet people often say I'm beautiful. Why? I believe it is because I make an effort to present myself well and I carry myself with confidence (even when I'm not really feeling it!).

My secret dream is to support myself by helping women find the beauty in themselves, but not by being a cosmetologist or by selling makeup. I have something deeper in mind, though I haven't put my finger on what it is just yet. Maybe someday I'll figure it out!

Here on SP my goals are about maintaining a healthy weight and pushing myself to get fit.

I'm happy to be here!


"Most people dislike vanity in others, whatever share they have of it themselves;

"but I give it fair quarter, wherever I meet with it, being persuaded that it is often productive of good to the possessor, and to others who are within his sphere of action:

"and therefore, in many cases, it would not be altogether absurd if a man were to thank God for his vanity among the other comforts of life." ~Benjamin Franklin
