Hey Everyone. I'm not new to Spark. Been away for awhile but after a family tragedy and stress I gained all my weight back. I missed the Spark, and need to surround my world with positive people.

emoticon everyone! I am an old time sparker (since 2009). I've started and restarted (and restarted and restarted, etc.) this journey too many times. Even after a health scare in 2014, I still didn't pay attention to the kick in the rear that I received. Well, I guess this year's trip to the dr, all it took was that trip up to the dr's scale and found myself at a weight I literally could not believe (not ready to divulge yet, but let's just say it was more than double my college weight). I still can't believe it! Anyway, it finally put me on a path toward certainty. I lost 20 pounds the first two months, but a bout with depression and anxiety stalled me for a moment and I regained 5 lbs. Well, I'm back...with a vengeance!

My self-prescribed program was simply adding a veg or fruit (or both) to every meal and packing my snacks so that I didn't mindlessly emotionally eat. I also picked up my old habits of strength training (which kept me trim until I hit adulthood), and walking after work. I am looking forward to the warmer weather to walk outside, as right now I am confined to the mall. I am prone to major mood swings which have sidelined me in the past. I am learning to walk it off, literally. Whenever I feel the flames being fanned, I get up and take a walk. I also loaded a tabata timer onto my phone and I do 2-3 minute intervals throughout the day to keep my metabolism from stalling out. I workout best in the morning, as long as it's not at home, and I'm scrambling for an alternative, as my original location is no longer available. As far as my eating habits, I still indulge, but I no longer binge (thank YOU JESUS!). I have learned how to do what I love in moderation, enough to still stay within my daily caloric limits. Hopefully this time, I'll continue on the journey! emoticon

Hi everyone,
I started SP 10 days ago. I've been changing my eating and exercise habits since September and hadn't lost a single pound or inch. Since joining I've found that I wasn't eating enough and I wasn't getting enough nutrients. Since joining 10 days ago I've lost 3lbs!
A little about me:
I've been married to my husband since '96
I have 5 kids and a 2 year old Granddaughter.
Hiking, reading and doing puzzles are some of my hobbies.

New here! 31 (on Sunday) wife and mom of 3 boys. Started making lifestyle changes about 6 weeks ago, but am in need of more motivation and encouragement. My plan has been to do it "slow and steady" and make changes that I can continue to keep up with forever, as opposed to hitting it "balls to the wall" (hope that doesn't offend anyone). I have been walking with a friend, cutting back on eating out (which is really hard for me), and trying to make better decisions when it comes to food without depriving myself. Hoping to start some new exercises soon and to find some new recipes (which is hard as I am a picky eater).

HI, I'm Erin!

Hello, I'm Kelly!

I recently joined SparkPeople (not for the first time!) and am so glad to be here. I am 28, a stay-at-home mom, and ready to work and finally rid myself of this weight!

I'm looking forward to getting to know you all as we work toward our goals together. I'd love to have a buddy or two (or more!), to help support each others efforts, so feel free to stop my my SparkPage and add me as a friend!

See you around the boards!

Just started on SparksPeople. I have struggled with my weight for most of my life and I have finally committed to losing it. I expect it to be a long battle since I am a Master's student who has a job so it does not leave much time for fitness. I am looking for a weight loss buddy since my family is not close to help me stay on track

Hi folks!

Again like others, I am trying Sparkpeople again. After some health issues, I really need to get it together. Like eating the elephant, I'm starting with small bites and focusing on the first ten pounds.

Can't wait for the new year and the new me! emoticon emoticon

Hi there! I was a member of this team years ago but slowly dropped off of SP over time. I'm back and very excited to rejoin this team... it was so helpful and motivating in the 30-pound weight loss success I had the last time I was on Spark.

I also was on spark before. I decided to start again, not the best time of the year, but I am tired of being depressed and carrying all this weight around. With the holidays it is going to be very hard to stay within my calories allowed for the day, but I am going to really try hard to do the best I can.

I was on Spark, about a year ago. I decided to try once again, but I can't do it by myself. I joined about 2 weeks ago and I am doing a few challenges. I am now joining a few new teams. I hope to meet some nice friends and will appreciate any words of encouragement along the way.

Good Luck to Everyone, who is in the same boat as me. emoticon emoticon

Hi ladies! I've been apart of this group as well as Sparkpeople for a while now but haven't been very active in a few years. I'M BACK NOW! I am a single mom of a beautiful 1 year old girl and I also work full time. I'm eager to begin my weight loss transformation AGAIN(In 2009, I lost almost 100 pounds and have since gained the majority back). I'm not comfortable in my skin but I understand that only I can change this and so I'm ready to make a change. It's not easy but its not that hard either... I just have to be consistent with clean eating and exercise. Recently, this journey has proven difficult because of my full daily schedule but I'm ready to give it my best! Motivation is definitely needed and I'll do my best to provide that same motivation to you! I intend to create daily blogs to help me stay on track... Stay tuned!

Hi all! I've been a done girl since 2008, but I'm back looking to lose some weight I've recently gained in some major life change over the last 9 months! I work in healthcare, helping my patients get healthier every single day. Often this means I don't have any support on my end. Looking for help staying consistent and accountable, so I'm coming back to where it all started for me in 2008.

Hello, I am new to this forum. I am a 41 year old mother of 4. I have gained most of my weight after my husband had his first heart attack 13 years ago, after his 30th birthday. It was pretty scary. I gained a lot of weight due to stress. I am not an emotional eater, but I do tend to go numb when the going gets tough and do all that is important but take care of me. I am done with this weight and now beginning to have health issues. I don't want that. I need support outside of my family that can be honest with me and that understands the difficulties of being a big girl. My goal for now is to lose about 95 pounds, just to get me to 200, then I will go from there. I have fell off the wagon several times but in hopes this will be the last. So here I start again.

Thanks,
Trixy

Hello my name is Kerri-Ann and found Spark in 2009. I loved the site and used all the amazing tools for a few years. I started law school in August 2012 and was to busy to think about anything but school stuff. I graduated this year and took the bar (waiting on results), so I came back to Spark knowing it worked. I loved being a Done girl back then!

I'm working on being a success story!

Huge Accomplishments:
June 2011- Done Girl Page of the Month

6/28/11- Done Girl of the Day!

I'm ready to lose this weight once and for all!!

I will reach my goal 1 pound at a time.

Hello! I'm "the hefty" one of the bunch, or at least that's always been my label. I've been on and off sparkpeople for a good 10 years. I've been up to 205lbs and I'm currently 176 lbs. I'm aiming to lose about 10 more and keep it off! DONE being the fat girl! :)

Hi, I'm Sherry and I joined spark not that long ago so still working my way around. Glad to have found this team because for pretty much all my life I have been the fat girl. Even when I ran track in high school and was a size 9 I was the biggest girl on my team . I also had a best friend who was skinny who while we hung out all the boys would pay attention to her instead of me and not to mention shopping with her was a nightmare because she was several sizes smaller than me. Now I am about to turn 40 and have been trying to lose this baby weight and get to my goal weight which I haven't been since before turning 30 since I had my last child who is almost 3 now. I am so DONE with being the fat girl. emoticon emoticon

Hi, everyone, I'm not new to SP but I am new to teams and message boards. I'm hoping getting involved here will help keep me motivated to keep moving in the right direction. I'm looking forward to meeting some new friends and I hope to be able to offer what support I can so we can all reach our goals.

The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing. Walt Disney

Hi there, I'm Gail and I've been on SP for quite some time. I was really active in the 30's+ page but now I'm over 40 and moving on. Three years ago, I had gotten in a car accident and broke every bone in my right foot leaving me laid up for over 8 months. Well, the foot is healed and my life is slowly getting back to normal; so I decided it was time to get back on SP! I've got a LOT of weight to loose, so I hope to be joining some challenges to keep me motivated!

Gail & Speedy...
with Jake, Duncan, Teddy, Muggy at the Bridge & always in my heart.

Hello my name is Sandolyn and I am 43. I have struggled with my weight now for 20 plus years but I really need to get healthy. I recently (March) graduated from nursing school and I know that I am a compassionate RN but I also want to be a healthy RN so that I can take great care of my patients and be able to give them advice as to how to take care of themselves and not feel crazy because I am not healthy. I hope that we all can be very motivating to each other. I also want to help my kids to be healthy and break the whole family big thing, my oldest son is 12 and he's about 50 mpounds overweight and I really have to change this because I am a diabetic with high blood pressure and have had 2 mini strokes and a light heart attack and right now wearing a heart monitor so I got to get healthy. Be blessed and thank you all for the support and motivation

Be blessed
