I'm Debbie and I'm 41 years old. I've got a long road ahead, but I'm DONE with excuses and I'm DONE giving up on myself.
I've been overweight since I was a child. By age 20 I was already over 200 pounds and I pushed past 300 in my late 30s. I would love to be at a healthy weight for once in my adult life!

Hi everyone! I was here before in 2009/2010 and had a lot of success with Sparkpeople. I let my health slide from my priority list over the last year and now I need to get back into a healthy life style and lose some weight/fat. I am DONE taking my health for granted!

Hello fellow girls that are DONE! I am DONE - not only being the fat girl, but putting everyone else's needs, wants and desires ahead of ME. I am ready to find balance in my life. And to find the fit chick that is hiding.

I am glad I stumbled across this team. I hope that I can contribute positively to all of you throughout our journey.
Love and light!
Meg

Hi everyone! I'm Kara, 34 and I live in east Tennessee. I'm a librarian and I run a small rural library. I have been overweight since I was a child, and have been on medicine for high blood pressure for a few years now. I have tried to lose weight so many times, and would do well for a while before I let something get in the way and derail me. I went to the doctor a couple of weeks ago and the number on the scale shocked me. I am at the highest weight I've ever been. I have problems with my knees, sciatica, and of course the high BP. If I don't start losing the weight now, I am going to be unable to move before I hit 40. I decided it's time for me to take control of my life back and stop letting the food, the stress, the "whatever" it is determine how I'm going to live.

My fiance and I are on a journey to get healthy together, so that when we get married, we will start that part of our lives together as healthy as possible.

I look forward to "meeting" you all! emoticon

Hello!
I am on a journey with you!
I am a wife with my husband being supportive of this journey. I am also a mom of 1 daughter (11) who is excited to see my journey. She has never seen me at a reasonable weight (not charts hate those). I want her to have a positive body image and I am seeing that is lost at this moment. Therefore I am going to lead by example and be happy as I go along not passing judgment on myself. I know this will have more impact than words. Although we are open and honest and have had discussed body image since age 5. I am happy to find a group that is supportive of women who are DONE like I am!

I am looking to find peace within me along with better health. Not just physical health..emotional and mental well being as well. 😆 I have confidence that I will do it this time! Life is to precious for giving up until tomorrow.
I have 159 pounds to loose. 32 pounds of which I have recently worked away! My focus is on short term goals that are atainable and reasonable this time.

Hi everyone :) I am Angie from Brisbane, Australia. I was recently diagnosed with Uterine cancer and my doctor told me to lose as much weight as possible before my Hysterectomy. I am hoping to do exactly that and more! I really want to stop making excuses and get to my goal.

I am hypothyroid and have type 2 diabetes. Which does not help me at all. But, I can lose weight and have in the past. The trick for me is KEEPING it off.

I am really motivated now with my health issues to change my life....not just diet.

Retired. Mom of 3 great kids, grandmother of 5 wonderful grandchildren. Recently Divorced after 38 years. Watching after my dad, and some other older friends when needed. Im the fat sister in a family of 5 girls. I like gardening and taking classes at the Sr . Center.

Trying to regroup after the divorce, the house is falling apart and everyone is telling me to move. Still finishing up the settlement paperwork so don't have to move yet.

I started the 30 day reset on the Paleo team. part of the challenge is not to weigh myself. But im sticking to the plan.

Hey everyone, I'm new here! I'm Allie, and I'm DONE! I've been a Fat Girl my entire life, and I am SO SO Sick of it! I can't stand looking at myself and feeling upset all the time, or looking at others and wishing that I had their body! I've been on spark people before and lost about 55 lbs, but after some health issues I put it right back on again and then some. I started up again about 10 days ago, and am down about 5.8 lbs so far (mostly water weight, but I've been doing great anyhow!) I'd love some accountability buddies to check in with daily to help keep each other on track!

Best of luck, y'all!

I will NOT feel deprived when I bypass junk food. I will feel empowered that I made the healthy choice.

If you are persistent, you will get it. If you are consistent, you will keep it.

Hi all, I am a 57 year old grandmother who has battled weight from the age of 1 year old. The last few years have been the most stressful of my life and since I eat when stressed, depressed, worried etc....hence the reason I joined this group.

Hi!

I'm new to this!

My name is Michele and I started off at 257 lbs last Wednesday. My first MAJOR goal is to under 200 lbs for the first time in my adult life.

I need all the support I can get so that I don't become complacent and lose focus.

Looking forward to this .

By the way, I was invited to sparkpeople and to this team by my friend LINIS_THIN. Thanks Lin!

Hi Everyone!

My name is Sarah. I am a professional musician and entertainer and I am here to achieve my weight loss goals.

I have achieved quite a bit in my 30 years in my career, but the time has come to put myself and my health front and centre in terms of priorities.

When I put in my first weight loss milestone that I want to achieve, I was a little shocked by the fact it CAN be done before I finish my current contract. I think it would be just awesome to walk off the plane after not seeing my friends and family for 10 months looking like a completely different person.

Here goes nothing ;o)

Hello, I am Quen Davis, I am new to the sparkpeople community. I am the type of person that take care of any and everyone and put myself last. Over a month ago I've started caring and loving on myself. Putting me first for once. For me that means addressing weight and other health issues. I look forward to being a member, learning from and supporting other members. Thanks for having me.

Love Always
Mrs. Quen :)

Hi Sara,

Welcome! Yes it is very hard when you are a driver to get exercise in. My boyfriend used to drive big rigs but now a bus so he can be home more and he walks up and down his steps so many times each day. LOL. It's something. Then in the evenings we plan a time to walk. Keep to logging and posting and you will do great!! Keep on keeping on!! You got this!!

~luvs & hugs Mel

Don't quit, when a wall hits you, hit back!!!!!

LIVE, LAUGH, LOVE AND BE HAPPY!!!!!

Ello my name is Sara. I'm 28 years old and from Arkansas. I have a boyfriend of 6 years. And I am ready to get healthier and look better for myself. I work for a transportation agency, I'm a driver. So it's kinda hard to actually exercise during work, but I'd like to try. I'm 315 lbs and ready to get down to at least 200/150. I'm welcome to making lots of new friends.

I am back on here again after a long spell of being off. It seems I HAVE to log my foods otherwise I just gain or stay at same weight. I have been losing the same 5 pounds over and over and don't understand why I am not losing...well I think I have pinpointed why....is there such a thing as being bread or sugar intolerant? I am going to run a test for myself to see what happens when I ween out the two from my diet. granted I had a bagel for breakfast but I am seeing how I am feeling with it and this is what made me want to try this test out...I see so many people lose tons of weight and I am still stuck at the same weight for a year. I had got down to 248 then I had to have a total hysterectomy and gained 30 pounds and now am back and forth tettertoting on 278-284...It's driving me nuts!!! I should be at my goal by now since I had the sleeve back in March of 2013...I battle with Hashimotos Thyroiditis but still I take my meds and still nothing...I'll get there, just a little depressed...Any help and support would be greatly appreciated.

I'm Erica! Not too new to SparkPeople - I tried using the site back in 2013 but "gave up" on my goals and ended up gaining 25+ pounds. In it more seriously now due to some arising health concerns that I don't want to deal with - losing weight is the best option to keep them at bay! I'm engaged to an amazing guy who's very supportive but that is the extent of my support system - sadly the fiance has no interest in eating healthy with me so I get to eat healthy surrounded by his junk food.

I would absolutely love finding a motivation/accountability buddy to help move through the weight loss journey!

I'm Sarah--I'm not new to sparkpeople but I am to this team. I just turned 30 a few days ago and I am DONE! My husband and I want to start a family but I have PCOS so it makes it a little more difficult--as does losing weight. My goal is to lose about 35 lbs before starting fertility treatments again.

I'm Beth. I haven't been on this group in awhile. I've lost over 200 pounds with Spark and plan to lose about 50 more.

Hey everyone!

I'm Amy, and I've actually been a member of the Done Girls team before. In 2012 I was active on SparkPeople and lost 40 pounds, 30 of which I kept off! I decided to get back on the wagon, so here I am. I've dropped around 20 pounds so far, but there's a lot more of me to shed. I've been training for a 10K, and did my first 5K in 31 years (!) two days ago. I'm still doing more walking than running, but I'm getting there! I'm looking forward to participating with the group--I love the encouragement and community on SparkPeople!

Hi ladies! I'm new to the team, but not SP. I'm 29 and from Alberta :) really working towards getting rid of this weight once and for all! Excited to get to know you all :)

If you always do, what you've always done, you will always be, what you've always been.

Don't give up what you want MOST for what you want NOW.

If you're tired of starting over...don't give up.

I am not new to SP, I am not new to dieting and I am not new to fitness. I have however had a hard time staying motivated the past several years. I have always been a healthy weight. Before I became pregnant with my first son I was 150; I am 5'2. When I became pregnant I made the huge mistake of eating for 2 in both my pregnancies. Over the last 6 years I have been struggling with being over weight. While pregnant I exceed the 200lb mark and after I have been stuck at 191. That has been my magic number, I keep telling myself that I will not get up to 200 again. Well, I gained 5 more lbs and it finally made me realize that something needed to be done to get this baby weight off. I am a size 18 pants and a L/XLG shirt depending on the designer. I carry my weight in my belly, hips, butt and thighs. I know that it is not going to be easy, but no pain no gain. I will fight through the voice that has always said that I can't be thinner and that I can't lose the weight. I will push through the pain to build a new and better me. So that I can be healthy once again. I am done with the feelings that bring me down. I am done with the attitude that I can never be better. I am done with the physical laziness that holds be back because I don't have the energy.I want to be a better role model for my children. I AM DONE!!!

Well like so many people I found good success which spark and this group about a year ago and lost 30 lbs. Well I have now gained that all back plus a bit more so here I am. Staying motivated is really hard and this group helped me in the past! Makes me realize how important consistency is with working out and what I am eating.

Hi everyone,

I was successful a few years ago utilizing Sparkpeople to lose 60 lbs. Since then a lot has transpired in my life and I've jumped up to a weight I never thought I'd see again. BUT starting today I am on a clean eating lifestyle. Drinking more water, cutting out white grains and sugar.
Hope to use Sparkpeople to finally get to my goal weight and keep it off :)
Nice to meet you all.

Hello Everyone,
I've been using Spark People for a few weeks and I too am DONE Being the Fat Girl. I'm on a pretty happy but realistic path - I'm losing the weight slowly but I refuse to give up. And I want to live life now - not when "I lose the weight" so I dyed my hair pink, I'm learning to play the ukulele and I'm transitioning out of the frumpy fashion slump I have been in for the last decade.

Glad to be here!! emoticon

Now is all there is.

I'm very active on 30-somethings with 100+ pounds to lose, and am happy to find another wonderful supportive group to go through this journey with!

I'm 31, a Stay at home mom, with 3 beautiful kids and loving even though very sabotaging husband.

I would really like to lose 186 lbs, but my big goal for now is 112! I miss Onederland! emoticon

I always had around 50 to lose but the last 5 years or so have been super rough and I ballooned in weight like... well a balloon.. emoticon

I'm DONE being the fat girl!

Hello everyone! My name is Crissy. I'm 30, been married 10 years to my amazing husband, have 2 children (9 year old son, 2 year old daughter), and I've been blessed with the ability to be a stay at home mother.
I've joined SparkPeople because I'm so tired of being unhealthy and not being comfortable in my skin. When I started, I weighed 220 lbs and I have so far managed to lose 20 lbs. My goal is to weigh 100 lbs. which would put me at a healthy BMI for my very small height of 5' 1".
I can't wait to get to know you all and watch you all accomplish all of your goals and then some!
