Hi Everyone,
I'm Kristie. We are going to Hawaii in June. My dad just sent me a calendar with pictures from our Alaskan vacation, I do not want to look the same in Hawaii. (Also won't have the clothes to try to cover up). I am excited to go, but need to fit into some summer clothes!!

Kristie, Michigan

My name is Christina, I am 27, I live about an hour north of Pittsburgh, PA and although I have been a member off and on for multiple years, I have made it my mission to kick the pounds away and finally win the battle of the buldge so to speak. My husband and I enjoy travelling and we have planned a trip for May next year to go all over the US from here to Chicago, then to South Dakota to see Mt. Rushmore, to Salt Lake City, off to Las Vegas for a couple days, Los Angeles (and Riverside to meet some long distance family members), to San Antonio to see the Alamo, then to New Orleans and Atlanta and then back home in two weeks. So obviously I would like to be much, much, MUCH healthier and smaller before that to really enjoy myself.

And it is nice to see another PA person here, JBLOOME521

Kicking the pounds away!

Hey there, fellow Sparkers! My name is Jen, I'm 27 years old and I'm from Southeastern PA. I've been a member of SP for a few years now, but I just started utilizing the site about 2 1/2 months ago. Hubby and I just recently booked our first trip to Europe in June 2015, so I'm working my tail off to get down to a comfortable, healthy weight before takeoff. Over the past 2 1/2 months, I've lost 27 lbs and almost 30 inches, so I'm on the right track, but I'm hoping joining groups will motivate me even further! :)

My body is a temple and it's time to do some renovating!

Aloha, I'm Renee' I don't have a vacation planned, but I know someday I'll make it to some tropical island... I have a bad case of wanderlust, but not much else right now... but when I do get to go, I want to feel great about myself when I do. I'm on my way. I've lost 55 lbs since November of 2012... slow, and not very steady (lots of ups and downs) but it's progress nonetheless. My goal is 158 because that is the high end of my healthy BMI range... I'd like to be in the 140's eventually.

Renee'

Hi Tiffany - I too am a travel junkie and since I have not been away for 2 years, I'm doing a big trip in November this year. My motivation is very strong at the moment and I am hoping that meeting others with similar goals will help to keep me on track!

Hi, I am Tiffany! I am a little under 1/2 way to goal weight. I had been past 1/2 way, but had a bit of backslide over the fall/winter. I am nearing (8 lbs away) from where I had been in September. I am getting married May 31 and we leave for our honeymoon in Aruba June 6th. I want to feel confident in my body and my appearance while enjoying the sunshine on the beach as well as in my wedding dress. I look forward to getting to know each of you better. I am a travel junkie and see myself staying a part of this team long after the wedding!

Hi Kim - 2016 seems such a long way off but it looks like you are well on your way. I am doing mainly Zumba right now as I enjoy the music. The chair workout is a little tough, but I am hoping to improve of I stick with it. Up until my 20's I was always very fit and active - that's what I want - not to be 20 you understand - LOL - just to get fit and be active again!

Good luck with your challenge!

Hi I am not sure if anyone is here, but this is my motivating goal so if anyone else has a vacation related goal - seems like the place!

I have an amazing 6 week trip planned starting November this year - so have 7 more months. My main goals are to get fit and lose 40lbs - 5 lbs a month is the goal and at last count I had lost 3lbs last month.

Am interested in joining anyone who wants to work together towards a common goal!

Hi, I'm trying to lose about 10-15lbs by April 30th which is the day that I leave for my vacation in Jamaica for 10 days. So excited for my trip! I'm only 5'2 so every pound makes a difference. I have been counting calories, trying to eat cleaner and working out 4 days a week. I have been focusing primarily on running but realize that I need to add more strength training in to my workouts so that starts today. Here we go!

Hi, my name is Amy and I haven't been active on SP in over a year. My father recently passed away and it's been a real wake-up call for me to not only get healthy, but to really live life to its fullest while I can. Next April I'm planning a trip to the beach somewhere (we haven't decided if we're going to do Hawaii or Mexico) and then in 2015 some friends and I are going to go to Italy! I want to look and feel my best not only for these trips, but in general. Looking forward to meeting you all!

Hi, I have been a member of this team for some time, but haven't posted anything until today. I let two wonderful travel opportunities pass me by due to my weight and discomfort in my own body. I have a cruise coming up with my sister. I want to fly in peace and comfort without having to buy two tickets or even ask for a seatbelt extender. I also want to enjoy the cruise without worrying that someone is trying to video tape me in my swimsuit for You Tube hilarity at my expense. I joined Spark Coach and am hoping that the extra support will boost my motivation and application of all the wonderful stuff I am learning from SP about nutrition, fitness, and wellbeing.

Hi,

I'm new to this team.

I have decided that if I plan a trip to a beach somewhere, that would be a good incentive to lose the 5 lbs a month that I made my goal on Apr. 1st of this year. So, that's why I joined Fit For Vacation. emoticon

Hugs,
Charlie

Hi All! I actually have 3 vacations planned for 2013! All for different reasons...
Trip 1: Taking my oldest daughter to Virginia Beach for spring break.
Trip 2: Oldest daughter's graduation / my 20th anniversary-Bahamas @ the end of May!
Trip3: Taking all 4 of my kids to Myrtle Beach-end of June

So I really need to get this weight off because it's going to be a fantastic year for us! emoticon

My goal for now is to lose a total of 50 lbs which I have been working on since right after Christmas 2012.

Hi I am Trisha 53 years old. Back in 2007 my then boyfriend and I got to go to Key West, Florida. We fell in love with the place and the ocean and have wanted to go back so bad. Back then I was big and it was hard walking everywhere and of course my pictures on the beach was not the greatest. This year my now husband of 3 years and I are planning on going back in October for Fantasy Fest and I always said when we went back I wanted to be skinnier and more fit so I could enjoy the island so much more. I have 9 months to get into that new body. So excited.

Hello everyone! I am Jennifer. I am a 29 year old mother of a 9 year old. Next August we are heading to South Carolina, and I am looking to get into better shape before we get there. I currently weigh 220, and am looking to lose about 1-2 lbs a week until we leave. I will be seeing my best friend whom I haven't seen since October 2009. I told her I was going to look completely different when she sees me next! hehe I sure hope so! I have a very inactive job. Today I have been standing at this desk for almost 8 hours now. I try to move around, toe raises..lunges when no one's around...at least until they get the cameras back up!

Hi, I'm Heather, and I am joining this team to help me get motivated to be fit for a trip to Peru this winter. We're going to be doing A LOT of walking and hiking, and when I get to the top of Machu Picchu, the only thing I want to take my breath away is the view, not the hike up!

I'd also like to get a cute, new vacation wardrobe to go with my 22 pounds lighter body, so I look good in my vacation photos. I have a vanity issue, I admit it!

Hello, I'm Holly and am planning a "warm" vacation for the end of January 2013. I still have about 41 lbs I'd like to lose before then. Although I'm scared, I have pretty much decided that no matter where I am in my weight loss journey at the time, I will be sporting a bikini, so obviously I want to do all I can to be the healthiest and most fit I can be before then. I would just love to at least be in "Onederland" before then (21 lbs to go!).

Hey team! My name is Emily, I'm working to get my healthy habits back to REGULAR habits, not only for my future health but also for my vacation this year! A friend and I are looking to hit up the Caribbean at the end of this Summer, and I'm hoping I can shed at least 15 of my 30lb goal by then.

Hello Everyone, I am 47 years old, headed for vacation in Myrtle Beach next week. I started on SparkPeople about 2 months ago, followed the Strength Training and have found cardio on YouTube, been trying to eat well. I have lost about 8 lbs so far, that is kind of discouraging, but I know I have lost quite alot of excess fat on my sides and stomach area, have not measured myself, but I do know my clothes fit better. I am a single mom with 3 kids, their father passed away 10 years ago, heart attack caused by being overweight and high blood pressure, he was only 47 years old, I am trying to due what I can to be here for my children for a very long time.

Hello everyone! I've been on and off Spark for years, and decided to make some permanent lifestyle changes now that I'm an influence on my 19mo old daughter. I've lost 15lbs since jan but the last couple weeks I have really gotten off track (and feel awful about it).

I'm heading to Gulf Shores in June and I know I won't be tiny by then (or ever lol) but I really want to feel better about myself, have more energy and be able to really enjoy the beach : )

Hi everyone,

I just joined this team because it seems like a good fit for me, seeing as how I'm planning on vacationing in WDW in October. I'm 34 and 60 lbs overweight and I'm tired of being fat and I'm tired of avoiding the camera. I want to look great, feel great, and I want to enjoy myself. I've done the vacations where I'm miserable and uncomfortable. I don't want to go on another vacation like that.

If I don't believe I can do this, then I never will. - ME

Hi Everyone! I just booked our first family vacay for San Diego in June. I lived there for a short time doing travel nursing and try to convince my hubby to move there, ha. Anyways, we booked for our 6th wedding anniversary and it will be just shy of our baby's first bday.

I am setting the bar high, all I can think of is first vacay pics!!! I am shooting for an additional 35 lbs gone by June 15th, 2012!!

Hey everyone! I have been on spark on and off since prepping for my wedding in 2007. I have really decided to get serious this time and lost 10 lbs in January by doing the Insanity workouts. I now want to lose 10 more before going to Vegas on April 1st!!

What are you all doing to lose the weight?

Hello everyone! I have been losing weight on my own for quite some time now and joined SP in the late summer. I sort of plateaued at 196 and got side tracked but I am back into it. I am planning a trip for late August/early September and would really love to feel comfortable in my own skin and taking pictures with friends and family. Good luck everyone!

Hello Everyone, My name is Gina. I am happily married, and the proud parent of five, active teenagers. We live in N. Carolina. I love to travel. Anything relating to the water, and I am in.
I love cruising and traveling to the beach.This year, I book our first family cruise, and would love to have the energy to enjoy it to the fullest, and of course, Look better in all those pictures that will be taken. Also, This summer we have planned a family trip to Mrytle Beach, and I'd love to buy a new bathing suit that fits me well. I look forward to sharing support, and motivation with you all.

Best Wishes,
Gina

Hi everyone! My name is Kesia and I've been a Sparker for some years now. Just joined this group and have made up my mind that I will have at least one major vacation every year. What is life if you don't make it worth living?! Recently married this past August and I don't want to look like a water buffalo in a bathing suit! I've done it before and I know I can do it again....so let's drop this weight!!!

"Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome. "
-Booker T. Washington


DONE girls? We don't turn heads, we BREAK NECKS!!! PLEASE BELIEVE IT!!!!

SUNNY GALS are melting fat like butta baby!

Hi Everyone, just wanted to say hello. Love the idea a of setting some goals before a vacation. I am heading to Disney World with my whole family in June and would love to set a goal of 50lbs by June. Good luck to everyone and hopefully we will all reach our goals and have great vacations.

If you always do, what you've always done, you'll always get, what you have always got!

I had a SP account and had lots of success with it, but I got off track and decided that with the new year I will have a new SP account that I can really hold myself accountable with. My name is Sarah, I am 23 years old and newly married. I live in Massachusetts. I'm finishing up my bachelor's degree in Psychology this spring and currently work as a preschool teacher. I'm a really friendly person so please send me a friend request on here! I love giving/receiving motivation! I can definitely get on your butt with tons of motivation if you ask me to! We're a team, let's help each other out!

Hi Everyone! I'm from Canada and I've been to: the U.S., Mexico, St. Maarten, Jamaica, U.A.E., Dominican Republic, Bahamas, St. Lucia, Panama, France, Belgium and Holland. This winter I'm going to St. Kitts and I have a cousin teaching in South Korea, so I'm tempted to head there for a bit this summer. I adore travelling and find it highly addictive! Now if I could only look good on a beach... lol emoticon

Hey Everyone,
Nikki here. After spending last summer in Europe and now living here I refuse to be the one that "wobbles" at the beach. I don't care what size I am I just want to be toned. My husband is French and I am Australian. In Australia I had always managed a normal amount of fitness but winter here is crazy! I saw snow for the first time! I also managed to hole up in the house and as a result have gained ALOT of weight. We have a few weekends in June and July and I just want to stand on the beach and feel confident. The girls here are skinny. I don't want that, I want to be healthy and toned.
Goodluck everyone! I think we can do it with some determination!

"In every block of marble I see a statue as plain as though it stood before me, shaped and perfect in attitude and action. I have only to hew away the rough walls that imprison the lovely apparition to reveal it to the other eyes as mine see it."—Michelangelo

Heading to Cozumel, Jamaica, and Cayman Islands in May! I'm graduating this summer from college and scored a free cruise. My friend and I are both trying to lose weight for the cruise. I'm excited to begin the journey. My weight has yo-yod my whole life. I'd love to finally have it managed and to keep it off. I'm also hoping to go to Europe next year and want to look hot!

Hi everyone, I've joined Spark People to try and lose weight to my first holiday with my boyfriend in July 2012. I am currently at my heaviest and really feel determined to get to my goal weight for when I'm going away. I have tried many fad diets before, but have obviously not worked as I am in the position I'm in now. This is the first time to a website like this so hope speaking to other people in the same position and also regularly blogging will help me stay motivated in this life changing journey.

Hi Team! My family is planning to go on a cruise during winter 2013. I have ALOT of weight to lose so that I can really enjoy our itinerary and even participate in some of the extra adventures offered by the cruiseline. Right now I am too heavy to participate in any of the activities I wish I could try (Para sailing, bike riding, and horseback riding). I refuse to sing this same sad song once it's criuse time!!! I don't think I will ever hop into a bikini, but I do want to swim without fear of ending up as the butt of a joke on you tube.

Hello everyone, just joined the team today. Thought I'd stop in and introduce myself. I'm looking to lose 69lbs by sometime in 2012. I have an awesome Italian get away vacation planned and its become one of my motivators; that and wearing a bikini for the second time in my life. So far, I've lost 11.4lbs since October 7, 2011 and I'm hoping to lose 10lbs by the end of November.

Get it right, get it tight.

My name is Katie and I'm on day 1 of my weight loss journey. My motivation to START is a trip to the Bahamas with my boyfriend in just 15 days. My motivation to FINISH is a tropical vacation next year where I can strip down to a bikini instead of trying to cover up and hide from the camera.

I just have a whole bunch of bad habits including fast food, potato chips, pop, and next to no exercise. I'm motivated to change these habits NOW!

Katie

Hi, My name is Amy. I'm 32. This isn't my first time on SparkPeople but it's been a long time since I was last trying. I had weight loss surgery in 2007 and I've gained back 85 of the 185 pounds I lost.

My biggest struggles are emotional and stress eating. Things have been getting more and more stressed for me at work and I'm realizing that unless I start making a conscious effort to at least recognize how much I'm eating I'm going to keep gaining wait. So I'm hoping that SparkPeople and the wonderful community here will help put me back on track.

Hi, my name is Sandy and I am 24 years old. My husband and I celebrated our one year anniversary on July 17!!! Because of my husband's business, it is difficult for him to take time off during the summer, so we decided to postpone our anniversary trip until October. We will be going to LA, and visiting Disneyland, Universal Studios, and my husband's Southern California hometown, of Palmdale. I am very excited to go and am ready for October to be here. Before we go, I would love to lose my final 14 pounds. Here's to hopin'! emoticon

I am 25 years old female. I am 40+ lbs overweight. I am very tired of being fat. Everyday is a struggle for me. For my height (5'7") I should be at the most 149. I can not tell you when was the last time I saw that on a scale. I can not get below 180s. The missing factor in my equation is dedication. I hope to develop this quality with help of SparkPeople! n its great members! Nice to meet you all emoticon
