Just seeing this, belated Welcome Back...

You'll find us mostly in the Town Square thread so come by soon, we'll keep you busy during this deployment. We've been know to create some mischief, so feel free to jump in or start some of your own.

Hello, I am new to SparkPeople and still somewhat new to Nashville. I have been trying to lose weight and eat halthier but an erratic work schedule and a lack of support are big challenges. Hoping to find some fellow Nashvillians (?) to provide support and to be able to do the same in return. Thanks!

Hey All,
this is my third time on SP but I am committed with new motivation to losing weight. I am excited to be on SP surrounded by such helpful and motivated people. I'm a little scared emoticon but optimistic. If anyone in Nashville is looking for an accountability I would love to have a partner.

Be specific in what you want, and use specific words. Empower yourself, and become the person you dream about

Hey!
I joined sparkpeople a few months ago but became very active last month. I have lived in Nashville my whole life but moved to Auburn, AL 5 years ago to attend college. I will be graduating this May and moving back home! I am so excited to start a new journey and wanted to lose weight for it and my brother's wedding next October!

Hey y'all!

Today is my first day on SparkPeople and I'm so excited to be here! I am a 20 year old college student studying Elementary Education and Spanish here in Nashville. In my free time, I enjoy singing in my university choir, participating in Greek life, and watching as much sports as I can.

When I was 13, I was anorexic. I have since gained a substantial amount of weight and am not in the kind of danger that I was back then. However, some of the tendencies have stuck with me throughout the years. If I'm not thinking about dieting or weight loss, I have no problem eating anything from salad to hot fudge sundaes. However, as soon as I tell myself that I need to be careful, I tend to over-restrict myself. I think this is because I never learned how to properly and HEALTHFULLY manage my weight.

Which is why I'm here. I am fully confident that I can re-teach myself how to eat right and exercise within reason. I plan to take things very slowly and to break down my long-term goal into smaller ones in order to stay focused. Being so far from my family, I would love and greatly appreciate any and all support from y'all! :)

Hello everyone,

I am Swati. I just joined Spark People.

Here is why I joined Spark: I usually exercised 5 days a week. But I could not do so due to an injury for almost 8 months and I am trying to get back into my old habit which is the easy part.
The hrad part: I can eat pretty healthy if I am by myself. Now I am no longer alone. When I am with family, or my boyfriend, it is very hard for me to cook healthy recipes. WE end up making foods that are really unhealthy calling them 'traditional family food' and also making lots of it. I offer to cook more often but sometimes nobody wants to wait an extra hour and would rather go to a restaurant. I find it hard to say that we should make only enough for 1 meal and only during celebration. Other days, we need to eat better. Also what makes it worse, is that this happens so often, that once in a while I can resist but not all the time. I am here to find ways of regulating my eating habits and my family's subtly (;)) so that they do not resist it.

I have worked very hard to be at a healthy weight and healthy self and I feel that it is going to get much harder!

Hi everyone My name is Casandra. I'm new to Sparkspeople. I am actually not in Nashville but west of there about 1.5 hours in a town called Big Sandy (which is near Camden and Paris). I noticed the posts and Nashville is the closest to me so thought I'd join to meet some people, maybe be able to do some events down the road, and I need some motivation as well as support with things going on in my life. I'm still learning how to move around in this site. Have a great evening and day tomorrow.

Hi,
My name is Emily, I'm 25, and I live out by Percy Priest Lake. My husband and I try to stay active, but I'm a self-saboteur and will come up with any excuse to indulge in food that's bad for me, or refrain from exercising:( I'm trying to change all that and learning to call myself out on bad behaviors. I like to hike, swim, walk, go to zumba class, yoga class, etc. I attend the Donelson Hermitage YMCA, so if anyone wants to meet up for exercise, just let me know! Looking forward to getting to know you! :)
Emily

Hi everyone my name is Latisha. I currently live in bellevue, moved back down here last year from clarksville when my husband went to korea, he is active duty Army. We just had our first daughter ally 7 weeks ago. I joined a couple weeks ago and have been trying to get into the groove of the site. so far i have been doing good tracking my meals, i just really have to work on getting more exercise in. I am still trying to find that balance of being a new mom, working full time and taking care of our two dogs on my own while my husband is gone. I will get it thought :). I ultimately need to loose over 100lbs. I have been heavy pretty much all my life but this is the heaviest i have been. I would love to be able to say is all baby weight but i really only gained 15lbs with my daughter soo cant claim that one. Anyway i hope to get to know you all. thanks for reading

Hey Ravin! I can really relate to you because I went through almost exactly the same thing when I was in college. Before I left home for college, I was already overweight but I never really focused on it (or avoided the topic). After my first semester, I ballooned and gained 20 pounds, which brought me to a whopping 213! (I'm 5'4")

I finally broke down one day and told myself that I had to change. I was so unhappy that I had to do it for my own emotional well being. I took it upon myself to make small changes in my day-to-day life that I could commit to, and I set monthly goals that I held myself accountable for. For instance, I told myself that I would drink a gallon of water every day (I even had a jug that I refilled every morning so I could watch my progress throughout the day). I also promised myself that I would start running, eventually building up to 30 min a day 4x a week. That first day I only lasted 2 min and had to walk the rest. But it was only the beginning.

All this to say, here I am now - married, about to have children, and I'm still not at my ideal weight. But I've come A LONG WAY, and the journey has been incredible. My best advice is to focus on the small things and take it one day at a time. Focus on what you CAN change, not what you can't. Eventually, all of those small things you do will build up over time and you'll see actual change.

Feel free to message me anytime. I can't wait to hear how things go!

Hi Ravin, missed this earlier. Welcome to SparkNashville, come on up to the Town Square thread that is where you usually find us.

I'd say, talk to a doc for next sememster get a waiver from the meal plan if you can get good alternative food choices.

We have some younger gals here, so come up to the Town Square take a look around as well as other newbie threads...just don't get discouraged.

Hi! My name is Ravin and this is my third day on Spark People. I joined this site looking for support and motivation. Since my early teens i have struggled with my weight and now that i am in college my weight is at an all time high, a whopping 207 lbs and I'm only 5'2"! I am not happy with the way i look and this has caused me to fall into a deep depression that is affecting many aspects of my life including my schoolwork. I no longer look into mirrors or take pictures because i literally don't recognize myself. I'm disgusted by not only what i see but also the knowledge that i have the ability to lose weight. When i was 16 i weighed 135 on a heavy day. Now only three short years later i am 70 pounds heavier.
My 2011 resolution is to lose at least 35 pounds by the end of the year. But i have no idea where to start. My school does not have workout equipment, and every student is forced to get a meal plan unless they have doctor's note. The meals are fried or greasy and the vegetables float in grease. As you probably know i cant cook my own meals since i live in a dorm so it makes it hard to follow a diet plan.
BNut i am determined to make this work! i want to recognize myself in the mirror again! all motivation is welcome! :)

Morning Nancy, and welcome to SParkNashville. You will usually find us quicker in the Town Square thread. Yes, looks like the powers that be are trying to revive the meet ups, but until then come on over and see what other stuff is goin' on.

Looks like you are on your way with the new improved version. How exciting you have twins, bet they are loving this white stuff.

Hello everyone! I am a new member and to this group. I have lived in Nashville for almost 9 years. I am a 28 year old SAHM with 4 year old twins, I am also a student at Nashville State CC. I have always been the "big" one in the family and I want to surprise my family when I visit in May with a new healthy figure! I look forward to losing weight, getting healthy, and making new friends!

I had a question: does this group do meet ups?

Thanks, Nancy.

Hey there, I'm not really new but haven't been around for ages. I'm back and wanna do this right so came back to a great team! :-) My name is Leah, I live in Springfield TN, attend Cornerstone church in Madison and work for a company that has small group homes for special needs adults .... LOVE my job. Like I said I had really fallen off the wagon and started gaining my weight back so ... here I am. Can't wait to get going back down the right path.

Hi! I have lived in Franklin for about a year and recently got a full-time job teaching 6th grade Science and Social Studies at Wright Middle School in Nashville/Antioch. I'm super excited but I want to have more energy to meet the every day demands of being a teacher. I also do Curves and by that I know I have lost 10 inches, even though my weight hasn't changed much. I've been married a little over a year now and that's when my weight gain started, again. I'm on the losing track now, and I hope to stay on it until I reach my goal, once and for all!

Hello my wonderful Nashvillians. I have been in Nashville for about 5 years now, but don't know many people except those I work with. My husband and I don't get out too much partly due to not having the money to get out and spend and partly because we are both overweight and meeting new people or going to new places can be rough when you are an obese person. I have been a member of SparkPeople since 2007 but only off and on. This time I am getting serious and the weight has to go. I have never seen myself thin and I am ready to see that person. I work for the school district, but not as a teacher. I would be interested in making friends online but don't want to meet, walk, or workout with anyone at this time. I am not trying to come off as rude, just wanted to be upfront.

Hugs and Smiles to all.

Hi! I am new to Nashville, having moved here about a month ago. I am not new to SparkPeople, but I have been a dabbler in the past. I am really looking to give and receive support and motivation with others who are on this journey to wellness. I have two grown children (25,23) and I have been married for 26 years to my best friend. I am 47 have lost 52# to date (25 since I found SparkPeople) and I still have 115# to lose.

I love Nashville and the people I have met so far. I love the Lord, I go to a rockin' non-traditional church and for my job I am a work-at-home virtual trainer for a major corporation.

The biggest barrier I have encountered having moved here from California is affordability, selection and quality of produce. I am open to suggestions and I hope you all will have some advice. I am used to having affordable, high quality produce available year round and easily accessible. So hook me up Spark Folks!

Have a blessed day Everyone!
Jan

Hi everyone. I actually don't live in Nashville yet, but we are trying to move there this year. My hubby is a musician (shocking!) and he is working up there constantly. I thought I would join this group so I could start meeting people from Nashville and learning about some of the places to go, etc. I've been to visit several times, but we usually stay between music row, Vandy, and downtown.

And, I went to UF, but don't hold that against me.

Hello everyone... I am new to this site, but would love to find people in my area to help me stay motivated to get healthy and stay healthy. I also would be glad to be someone else's motivator. I live in Fairview about 20 minutes west of Downtown Nashville, hope to hear from someone soon.

Hello. I'm new and I'm lost...lol! Hopefully this will be the last time I attempt to lose weight. I've been overweight my whole life and welcome anything that will help me to lose weight. I look forward to meeting some of you and taking this journey. I will need a lot of accountability as well.

We lived in Orange County - Fullerton more specifically. Lived out there for about 3 years while the fiance finished up college. Then we decided we'd like to actually be able to afford a house, so we left that area :) I only had a couple of chances to get down to San Diego, but I had a blast both times!

Hey guys and gals! I have been around this site for a while on and off, but have had trouble staying motivated for more than a couple of weeks. I am determined to stick with it this time!

My fiance and I moved here to Nashville about a year ago from Southern California. So far, we're loving it here! We just bought a house, and if all goes according to plan, we should be moving into it this weekend. Anyone want to help us move? Just kidding!

I look forward to chatting with you all!

hi everyone! i'm up in white house with my hubby. we've lived in the nashville area (first in hendersonville, then white house) for two years now, but haven't been able to get any kind of social network going - mostly because we both work from home! i'm hoping to find some virtual support since i haven't had much luck in the real world ;-)

Morning and come on by the TownSquare, that's where you can usually find us. We forgive you for living in M'boro, actually there are quite a few from your area.

Soccer, that's quite a workout in itself and you'll have to keep us posted on training your hubby for a 5K.

Best of luck on your journey!

Hi! I actually live in Murfreesboro, but I love to keep an eye on what's happening in Nashville. I've been on SP for awhile now.

I coach soccer and get in the gym quite a bit. I love warmer months though, when it's easier to get outside. This summer my husband has decided that he wants to run a 5K with me, so I am helping him build from the ground up! Exciting!

Welcome Rindi!!

You should stop in to the Town Square message board and say hi...that's where we all "hang out." There are a lot of members on this team that know their way around weight loss and this site, so don't be afraid to ask questions -- there is plenty of good advice and motivation to go around!

Hi I am Rindi. I joined SP a few days ago and I am new to this team. I live about 20 minutes south of Nashville in Brentwood, TN. I have lived in this area for about 4 years and I really like it. I also need friends to help keep me motivated so add me if you like. I look forward to working on some goals with the team. I have 3 little boys and I didn't loose much of the baby weight in between them so I just got heavier after each one. I just want it gone!!

Hi Amanda!

Come on over to the Town Square thread and introduce yourself -- that's where we all "hang out" and chat. We are an active team and there are a lot of people here who have been through every step of the process and can share their advice!

My tip? Take it one step at a time -- it can be very overwhelming if you try to do everything all at once!

My name is Amanda and I am new to spark. I was hoping to join this group and possibly talk to people who are also trying to lose weight. I have lived in Nashville for about 10 years and in May I will be graduating from nursing school (I cannot wait to be done!!). I have always been a big girl but could never keep up the motivation or will-power to lose weight, but now I am trying to join the airforce for their nursing opportunities. I have no idea how to start my journey, anybody have any ideas for me??
