Welcome to the team TiredBeingTired! You can do it!

After having been on this team for awhile, it has come to my attention that I never introduced myself! I'm Sandy. I am approaching my 30th birthday this year. I want to be healthy in my 30s and set a good example for my son. I am in the process of changing my life for good! It's time to get healthy and stay healthy. Enough is enough!

Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were going to live forever.

It is health that is real wealth, not pieces of gold and silver.

Hello all the Done Girls,
With all the SP teams out there this one just spoke to me. I have done numerous things in my life to try to stay thin and lose weight to include going as far as to join the air force for 7 years in an attempt to live an active life style. In the end I have learned that it really comes down to my own self will power and doesn't matter how many people you have yell at you to lose weight you aren't going succeed until you are ready to lose the weight. That ladies is where I find myself I am not losing the weight to make anyone else happy, to be thin, to look good, to be healthy, those are the rewards I am doing it to make myself happy because I am ready. I look very forward to continuing my fitness journey with everyone here. I am 26 and I live in GA. My current goal is to reach 180lbs by January. This is a very realistic goal and one I only hope to exceed. Thanks to everyone for taking the time to read my intro and I hope you guys have a great day!!!

What have you procrastinated today? Stop and go do it!!

Welcome to the DONE girls Kimberly! I love this team! And I think you will too!

~~ Michelle ~~

Don't waste your time with "could've," "would've" or "should've." Focus on "can," "will," and "do."

Time will pass no matter what .... will I be closer to or farther from my goals

It’s not that some people have willpower and some don’t. It’s that some people are ready to change and others are not. Finally, I am ready to change!

New to this team :-)

Never let success go to your head, and never let failure go to your heart.

Make time, or make excuses. The choice is yours.

Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.

Hello everyone! My name is Christina and I'm 18 years old. I've just moved to Cincinnati, Ohio where I'm finally on my own. Nervous, but very excited! I'm a hopeless romantic :) who adores books and can't live without music. I was born and raised in France, but moved here to the United States when I was 15 with my parents.
I've always been on the "curvy side", but after my parents divorced, I began comforting myself with food which ended up with me gaining 70 lbs. I'm not proud of myself for that, but I've at least realized that this isn't healthy and I'm determined to gain my health back.
I can't wait to meet all of you!!!

I joined Spark in 2008 or was it 2007? Well, the first time I joined. I have deleted and rejoined a few times. And I am back again... ironically my goal weight is to be what I was back in 2007/8 when I was at least at the top end of my BMI and not wayyyyy past it.

More about me on my page.

Hi emoticon I'm Liz.

A few years ago I was an avid Sparker, and lost nearly 20 pounds. I wandered away, got hurt, rehabbed, moved cross country, got a stressful job, watched my son go off to the Marines, and recently found myself back where I started + 10 lbs, depressed, lonely, and without warning out of a job. I had signed back up with SparkPeople last year while showing it to some friends I worked with, but never really got back on board.

I've decided that in order to get my sanity back, I need to move more and nourish my body and my soul for a bit.

I'm glad I stumbled across this board, I'd like to start an exercise streak, and meet new people who are also working on building good habits.

Hi, ladies! I'm back after some time away too. Last time I used SparkPeople, I worked my way into my healthy weight range and got dangerously close to my goal weight. I got off track and gained it all back and then some. I'm back now and ready to get back on track to back to being healthy. So happy to be joining a fun and encouraging group of women!

Hi gals, I'm returning after a few years hiatus. Today is the day I'm going to start taking better care of myself and seriously keep on it. I'm a full time working mom of 2 boys (ages 7 and 5) and I commute 100 miles a day. So my free time is almost non-existent. My main goals are to STOP DRINKING POP (my biggest issue), eat healthier, and work in a bit of exercise when I can. I can use all the support that I can to stay on track. Nice to be here!

Hello everyone. I am new to SparksPeople. I read on a message board that this was a great group to be a part of. Just to give you a quick summary...My name is Tiffany. My first goal is to get back down to 200 lbs. I stayed right around 200 for a long time but after having my daugther last year I was at my heaviest at 232 (while I was pregnant). I went back down to 210 after having her but I am now back up to 225. I just want to be the best person I can be. Not only for me but for my husband and my beautiful daughter. I would love help and support along the way.

Hi Everyone! My name is Jeanetta and I am happy to have found a team where I believe I will fit in. I need a friend/buddy to help keep me encouraged because quite honestly, sometimes, I feel like I am going at this all alone. This weight is something that I not only want to lose, but I desperately need to lose. Old habits are always lurking around the corner, and I know that I have been on this journey before, only to be side-railed, and turned around, ending up starting all over again. I am so tired of that road. Anyways, I am going on and on and this is only supposed to be an introduction so I will stop here. Looking forward to getting to know you guys!

Don't waste your time with "could've," "would've" or "should've." Focus on "can," "will," and "do."

Time will pass no matter what .... will I be closer to or farther from my goals

It’s not that some people have willpower and some don’t. It’s that some people are ready to change and others are not. Finally, I am ready to change!

Hello ladies! My name is Liz. I have 3 separate mini goals of 25lbs down every 3 months for the next year. My goal right now is to reach 200 lbs. I am currently 299 lbs. I am doing this for me. I want to see my kids grow up. I want to be active in their lives. I have to do this.
Good luck ladies!!

In order to be happy with others, you first need to be happy with yourself.

Welcome back Becky!

~~ Michelle ~~

Don't waste your time with "could've," "would've" or "should've." Focus on "can," "will," and "do."

Time will pass no matter what .... will I be closer to or farther from my goals

It’s not that some people have willpower and some don’t. It’s that some people are ready to change and others are not. Finally, I am ready to change!

Hi! I'm Becky and I'm so excited to be here (again). It's been three years since I've actively participated out here, and right now it just feels right to be a part of this. Thanks for all your encouragement and I welcome all of your support!

Hello, I'm Elizabeth.
I'm a 30 yo SAHM of 2, ages 1 and 3. I've tried several times to lose weight, even a few times here on SP. But this time, I am officially done. This time I get that I am the only one who can fix it, and I CAN fix it! I also get that I can't do it overnight, and I don't even want to because I want to keep my progress once it's earned and it'll take time to learn how to do that. But, because of my status as SAHM I am somewhat isolated from most adults and I'm looking for a community for ideas, support, and maybe a few laughs. :)

Hi emoticon , I'm Elke. I'm 48, mother of 3 adult children and 4 grandchildren. I live with my best friend and perfect companion, Riley. He accepts me the way I am, hardly ever back talks and only complains when I'm being to lazy to take him for a walk :-)
I will turn 50 next year and I set that day for my goals. I'm done being the fat girl, time to get serious.

Hi everyone! I'm Jessica. My husband and I have been married 3.5 years and have 2 biological children ages 7 years and 8 months. We are also foster parents and currently have 2 medically fragile infants ages 12 months and 1 month. Yes, that's 3 babies 12 months and under! Life is crazy, hectic and full but I NEED to be DONE with all this extra weight! I was within 30 pounds of my goal weight when I got pregnant with my first child and currently am within 30 pounds of my MAX weight. UGH! I need help with quick but healthy meal ideas and how other parents fit it all in! I also work full time 12 hr night shifts as an RN so finding time for anything extra is a struggle! I look forward to chatting with everyone!

Hi everyone, My name is Nikki. I am 25 years old and have a 5 year old daughter. Been married for 7 years. I've spent my entire life hiding myself because of my weight and depression issues and I've decided no more. My current weight is 295 and my goal is to hit 150 by the end of next year. I do not want to go through the rest of my life being this way nor do I want my daughter to see me this way anymore. This is my second time on SP and this time I am serious about it. I've lost complete motivation to do much of anything but I think with the support from here and my husband I can and will succeed.

Hello, my name is Gail, 49 yrs. I have two boys that live with me, and some grown kids that don't live with me. I join Spark People back in Nov 2011 but never took it serious at that time. I try to do this on my own but that fail, and last year we went to Kenya and I put on a fake smile but I was embarrass because of my weight. when I came home I thought I give it another try I lost about 20pounds. but then I got comfortable again and stop tracking. when I had a doctor visit May 29th this year the scale read 279lb. I always told myself if I see the scale get close to 300lbs. its time to get serious. Now I am back since May 29th I lost 1lb. finding support to keep me on my toes with this tracking food and exercising. I am done being that Fat girl everyone talks about. I am planning an another trip Kenya next year and I want to be fit. I have to lose least 100lbs.

Hi ladies! My name is Sonja, but you can call me Red. I'm a 31 Year old single mother of 2 fantastic boys ages 9 and 7. I have at least 181 pounds to lose. When I started this month I was 356 pounds and in the last week I've lost about 5 pounds by using a calorie/exercise Diary and swimming a bunch. My body is too heavy to enjoy working out above the water right now but swimming I can do for hours and that combined with a 1600 calorie diet has really made me feel amazing! I get soreness, but the good kind, where my body is telling me how awesome it is to move again after so long being stuck in stasis. I have been sleeping 20 times better than i normally do, and my eldest son is now coaching me in the pool as well as acting as my weights♡ It feels really good to have my boys want to join in and "help momma get healthy so she can play with us and not be tired all the time" So there is a good portion of my motivation to keep going! Gotta love having pint size support! ☆☆

Hi everyone! My name is Michelle. I am 48 happily married but no kids. I have been heavy all my life and have tried too lose this weight many times. You name it, I've probably tried it. I did have some success about 18 years ago with the Weight Watcher's exchange plan and got within about 30 pounds of my goal. Now I am again at my heaviest with a significant amount of weight to lose. I joined SparkPeople a few years ago, but never really did anything with the site. I rediscovered it a few days ago and finally am starting to have hope again. I am tired of being this size and all that goes with it. I am determined to be fabulously fit and 50 in two years. So here I go! It's time to be DONE once and for all! I am excited to "meet" everyone on the team!

~~ Michelle ~~

Don't waste your time with "could've," "would've" or "should've." Focus on "can," "will," and "do."

Time will pass no matter what .... will I be closer to or farther from my goals

It’s not that some people have willpower and some don’t. It’s that some people are ready to change and others are not. Finally, I am ready to change!

Hi my name is Sherri. I returned to Spark about a month ago and just found this team. I am single and I have a beautiful 4-legged fur baby named Mady. I will turn 50 in a little under 18 months and I want to hit my goal weight by then.

My mom (and many other family members) have Type 2 diabetes which means the deck is stacked a little bit against me. I decided that it was time to take control of my life and change the odds in my favor. I am tracking everything I eat (even if it puts me over my calorie range) and I made a commitment to do 100 consecutive days of exercise. Today I am on day 16!!!

Sherri

Hello everyone! I'm a 29 year old woman who has been married for 10 years. We have been blessed with 2 children, a 9 year old son and a 1 year old daughter. I've always been on the "chunky" side, but after giving birth to my son, I gained a lot of weight. It wasn't until after giving birth to my daughter that I weighed my heaviest...220 lbs. I was shocked that I had allowed myself to get like this. Shocked and disgusted. I've now lost 15 lbs, but I know that I have a very long road ahead of me. Can't wait to meet you all!

Hi Everyone!
I am a Re-Sparker. I tried so many yoyo diets and failed. This time is my time to succeed. I was diagnosed with MS 2 yrs. ago and its been a real struggle.

I am looking forward to being a part of this team and get & give the motivation & support that we all need.

Hi Everyone!

I'm new to this group but not new to Sparkpeople. I'm trying to refocus. I'm glad to have found you. I am currently recovering from vertigo. I have had this one other time, but this time it was no joke. .

I am married and have two daughters, one son-in-law and a bouncy grandson. I live in eastern NC near the Atlantic Ocean.

I am looking forward to being a part of this team and giving as much encouragement and support as I can, I also will welcome any support and inspiration that you can give me as well because we are in this together and we all have a common goal which is to be healthy.

SparkCheers
Diane

You are God's Masterpiece....Eph. 2:10

You have been given a body as a beautiful gift. You only get one per lifetime. Appreciate yourself. You are worth taking care of and treated with the utmost love and respect.

When you are going through something difficult and wonder where God is, remember the teacher is always quiet during the test.

STAY FOCUSED!!!!!

Hi. Beth from Illinois. I am here because I am DONE being the fat girl. I am especially DONE being the unhealthy girl. I am really ready to get off of the diet roller coaster and make a life style change. Speaking of roller coasters, I am DONE standing in line at amusement parks praying I will fit on the ride. I hate that I find myself looking for people larger than me getting off the ride so I know I will fit. I want to enjoy life and be healthy and happy for me and my family. Looking forward to getting to know you all.

Beth

emoticon Hello, my name is Linda, and I live in NW Iowa. I have been with SP since, I think, 2010 but was MIA for a couple of years. Gained back all the weight I lost the first time, so here I am back starting all over again. It has been a good many year since I considered myself a "girl", right now I am a fat old lady. I'm 70 years young, and young at heart. So if you don't want little old fat ladies in your group I will understand. I will take no offence. But sometime the advice from an oldster it what you need, and I will be a shoulder to lean on when your down and the first to congratulate you when you've done good.

Hi! I'm Megan, I'm 26 years old and I'm from Ardmore, AL. I've struggled with my weight most of my life and haven't ever been very successful in losing weight. I'd lose some and then gain it and more back. I reached my heaviest (285 lbs.) in 2012 when I was pregnant with my son. I was able to lose my baby weight pretty quickly, but it really slowed down once I reached my pre-pregnancy weight (254 lbs). Since then, I have gotten more active on SparkPeople and in my weight loss journey. I have lost 44 lbs and still have a long way too go! I saw this team on one of my friends Spark Page and saw that it was a pretty active team, so I decided to join in!!

Hi I am new to this group. I started SP March 17 with the determination that I would become healthy. I'm tired of being the fat girl. I'm from a small town in SC. My first weight loss goal is set for 40lbs but my ultimate goal is 100lbs. I'm half way to my first goal!! woo hoo!

Hi! I'm Michelle, I'm 48 and live in SW Colorado. I have been on SP off and on (mostly off) for about 7 years. I decided last fall I need to get serious and lose weight and get in shape. I am the main caretaker for my 92 year-old mother. I would like to get down to 150 lbs by the time I turn 50 (which is in 16 months). I have always been the FAT girl and I am tired of it.

Hey,

I'm Kimmi 26 years old and a part time nanny. I'm getting my life under control after a crazy year last year and 4 years of just trying to figure out what I want to do with my life. I am just about to start school again and work my way towards being a teacher. A little nervous on how this will effect my stress levels and there for my attitude on getting healthier, so I'm hoping a few groups like this one will help me stay motivated and on target!

Hi.
I'm Katie. I'm 37, a mother of 1 preteen daughter and wife of 15 years.

I have always put everyone else's needs in front of my own, but I am so DONE doing that. I need to focus on myself and they can fend for themselves. I will be 38 in August and I have found weight most of my adult life. I am tired of fight and I want to finally get in gear and lose it.

I joined a few months ago and did ok, but I don't think that I had the right mindset yet. The closer I get to 40, I seem to realize that the weight isn't going to go away on its own.

I would love to make some friends to help keep me accountable and keep me on my toes...lol

Katie
