Greeting everyone! My name is Beth, I've lost 55 pounds and I'm looking to lose 80 more. I myself am not new to SparkPeople, but I've been active on and off for the past 4 years. I have found success in this site in the past and look forward to my future achievements. I have a pretty good support group going on, but more is better! Hit me up if you want a buddy to cheer you on :)

I'm Liz, I'm almost 33, I'm a mom of 3 (two boys, one girl), happily married, and I've already lost 113 lbs. I was a member of this team a long time ago and decided to come back and help motivate others! I have 62 lbs left to go to reach my goal. I love seeing my muscles getting more toned every month. If you ever need any help, I'm here for you all!

Welcome aboard Athena! You've made the right choice by getting on with the Done Girls, they are a force of nature. Anything can be achieved if you believe them.. just gotta believe =) You're in for one bumpy ride?
I find that commenting and being involved in the community is the best thing you can give yourself in that journey. We're such a close unit! Have fun

You are SO worth all the efforts you put in your journey! Don't give up, it's never a failure, just a step back. Going forward is the key because nobody is perfect and set backs will happen. Be proud!

Hi everyone. I'm Athena. I desperately need to lose 25 pounds. I am so over being heavy. I look in the mirror and don't recognize myself. I took the step of buying a Nordic track treadmill. I am determined to take this weight off and support others along the way!

My name is Jessica. I've been overweight since Junior High. Wow, almost 2 decades and my entire adult life, I've been overweight. (Size 12 in 8th Grade, Size 16 my Senior year in high school, Size 20 my Sophomore year in college, Currently size 24...I'm not liking this trend) I have escaped bullying, and am very grateful for that, but I still feel apart. I notice when there is no one in a room larger than me. I am always aware and slightly uncomfortable that all of my undisciplined eating habits are out there for the world to see. I am done making excuses, done ignoring my health, done ignoring my needs. "Done Being The Fat Girl" is very apt.

Hello everyone! My name is Crissy and I'm 29 years old. I live in Kentucky with my amazing husband, 2 children (9 year old son/2 year old daughter), and our 3 year old mutt whose name is Malia.
I've always been on the chunky side, however, I've had a wakeup call recently that made me realize just how far I've allowed myself to go. I'm now weighing in at my highest weight ever...210 lbs.
I can't wait to meet all of you and watch you all meet your goals!

Hi everyone! I'm Amy. I'm 32 and live in North Carolina. I've recently been struggling with the same 15-20 lbs, and would like to lose those again plus at least another 20. I've been slacking off in the tracking department, so that changes today. I'm happy to be involved with this group so we can motivate and encourage one another. Have a great day!

Hi my name is Lisa. I have done this a few times now. I keep getting side tracked. First it was life getting in the way. Then there was love. And this last time it was cancer. I am 30 years old. With crazy messed up hormones and metabolism from chemo. I am hoping this is the last time I am restarting my journey I want to be healthy for good. I am looking to lose a whole lot of weight and planning on keeping it off. Hope everyone is having a good day.

Hello! My name is Aadi and I'm 18 years old. I'll be starting my senior year of high school next Monday and I'm super excited and just a tad bit nervous. :)
I'm considered obese with me weighing in at 220. My goal is to lose 120 lbs. with my new healthy lifestyle change. I understand that this is not a sprint, but a marathon and I'm more than willing to begin making the changes that will hold me throughout my life. All that I know is that I don't want to be like this the rest of my life.
I love reading and most days you can find me snuggled up in my window seat with a good book and a cup of tea/coffee. I'm a hopless romantic which I've surprisingly inherited from my father...he's a writer. I cannot live without music...it's going 24/7 and it ranges from anything to classical to classic rock. I'm not picky. ;)
My goals starting out is to begin drinking 8 glasses of water daily, eating within my calorie range (healthy foods), and exercising at least 15 min. daily (but working up to an hour). Each day, I'll be focusing on strength training, cardio, and stretching.
Well, that's a little bit about myself. I can't wait to meet all of you and see you all reach your goals!

Greetings and Salutations.

My name is Tia and i'm 31 with a beautiful child and significant other (SO). My SO and myself have decided it is time to shed the pounds we packed on and find the skinny people trapped inside. Together we have about 175 pounds to lose, and a wonderful journey to share on the way there. I just joined sparks people yesterday and look forward to getting to know people and exploring the world of fitness around me.

Hi all! My name is Natasha I'm 33 years old. I am a wife and a mother of 1. I have struggled with my weight since high school. I have done many diets and will lose weight but it just comes right back. In January 2013 I was at my heaviest at 236. I started a medical weight loss diet and by January 2014 I had lost 66 lbs. At that point I felt great but the doctor wanted me to stop taking the adipex and take a break since it had been a year. Well since then I have gained 37 lbs back. I have come to realize that I need to change my lifestyle and not diet. I found spark people two weeks ago and I love it. I'm down 5 lbs since I started and overall I am feeling better and stronger. I look forward to being a part of this team because I am definitely done being the fat girl!!

This is a wonderful site where you can be with like-minded people. It always helps to have people on the same page looking in the same direction while working on a project.

Hi, y'all! I have been part of SparkPeople for a long time, and have come to the site on and off. I got down to my goal weight pre-baby using this site...and never got back down again after...and he's turning 3 this month! I want to get pregnant again, but in the meantime, I am DONE with seeing my weight creep up! Yes, I have stress and get very busy due to my job, but I am DONE letting that threaten my health, shortening my lifespan and making me feel too fat and tired to have more fun with my family!

I keep hearing that getting involved in the community makes all the difference on SP, and I've really not experienced that much. I have been tracking some active SparkFriends, and a couple have been good enough to "Like" stuff on my Feed, but I need more interaction than that. Y'all look like a fun bunch, and your threads are active out the wazoo, so here I am, ready to jump in with you! I'm actually an introvert, so it may take me a while to figure out HOW to jump in, but I'll start by putting up some DYKs and we'll see where we go from there :)!

Hello everyone!!

New to spark people! I can not tell you how thrilled I am to see a team about not being the fat girl anymore. I was teased all through high school and after high school I moved out on my own in a new state and city. I had a group of friends were my self esteem was so low I just figured it was normal for friends to call you fat and pick on you all the time. After some changes in my life like a new relationship and new job I came to the realization who my real friends were. In the end my friend pool ended up being one person. My best friend who never made fun of me and always supports me and I couldn't be happier knowing she is my friend. This became a longer post then I was expecting and I do apologize about that. However I am just so happy to finally see that there are other woman out there that are fed up with being the fat girl and are doing something about it. Excited to be apart of the team!!

Hi! I am new to sparkpeople (joined yesterday). My new years resolution for 2013 was to lose weight and get my health under control. Since then I have lost over 100 pounds. I could have lost more, but I fell off the diet wagon so many times. I joined sparkpeople hoping that tracking my food will help me stay on track this time. My new motto is "If I eat it log it". I also purchased a fitbit to help keep me motivated. I was recently diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the spine and hips. I also have neuropathy, but I am determined to keep moving.

Welcome new DONE girls! I am glad you joined us. This team is awesome. Not a day goes by that I don't remind myself that I am so DONE being the fat girl. emoticon emoticon

~~ 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 everyone! I am so over being the fat girl and am making the change starting right now! I tend to give up after I start seeing results, I think because I get too comfortable, but who knows! So motivation is what I will need! I sure hope ya'll can help me emoticon I am really looking forward to this journey!

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!

Hi all :) I just joined this team. I've been on SP for just over a month now, and ran across this team. I can always use more motivation and encouragement and like to help encourage others, so thought I would join.

Looking forward to getting to know y'all :)

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!
