Hey all! I am reintroducing myself. My name is Kim and I'm done with the emotional and physical roller coaster I've been on this year (see my blog for today). I am ready to hit the reset button and move on! I worked out today for the first time in a long time and I forgot how good it feels. I really hope I can stay strong and keep this going for good this time. emoticon

Absque Deo Nihil

I'm DONE, never look back, I'm no longer that sad hurting girl, I love her and am taking care of her.

I have been the fat or pudgy girl a description I hate. since I was a teenager too. I'm 53 years ago an all I have done with my weight is yoyo . I'm tired of feeling like I am not good enough because of my weight, which my weight has ballooned a lot in the last 6 months. I'm saying you can do it and I'm goin to be here cheering you on.

Have belonged to this site for almost 2 yrs. Just saw this team on a friends SP page. My name is Linda. I am 69 this month and am very over weight. I log in every day because I know I will quit unless I make an effort to face my problem and talk to people who understand my situation daily. I live in MD. have 2 cats. 14 yr old Chrisy Miss and 6 1/2 yr old Garfy. (Sir Garfield). Looking forward to seeing what this group is all about.

Hello team!

I'm Teri, it's my second week on Sparkpeople and last week I lost 4 lbs. Woo hoo! I'm sooooooo done. I want to reach my goal weight and stay there. I feel that if I make permanent changes to the way I eat, and more importantly THINK, I will reach my goal, slowly and stay there.

Hi there,
My name is Brittany. I am new to this group, but not spark people. I have been down this road before. I lost 60 lbs last year, but got pregnant and gained that back, plus another 35. I just had my baby girl a month ago (I also have a 2 year old son) and am ready to get back at it. My highest weight was 310 at the end of my pregnancy. Currently I weigh 280. I started my journey yesterday and am just looking for support and to support others in their journeys. I am determined to make this stick this time and with no more kids in the future, it is time to take off the weight for good so that I am here to watch my children grow up.

Hello everyone - My name is Maria I am a newbie, and at 32 years old and with 50 pounds to lose I have a long journey ahead of me. I am an American, but live/work in Jordan (Middle East), and it can be difficult to do this alone, so I am excited to see so many others and look forward to getting to know and support you more. I cannot wait to regain the old 'me'!

Hello. I'm new, again.. emoticon

I haven't been on SparkPeople for about 4 years now but am struggling to stick with my medical weight loss program so I'm looking for inspiration, accountability, and encouragement. I've been overweight all of my life and I think part of me has a hard time believing that this much of a weight loss is possible for me. But I'm bound and determined to keep trying.

So here's to us all rockin' the weight loss until we're all done being the fat girl! emoticon

Hey all, so I'm new to the Done girl page but not to spark people. My name's Shelley and I'm from Canada. I've been on spark for like four or five years now but just stumbled upon this page. So I'm 41 years old and just made a major move 2 1/2 years ago but have really struggled to adjust. I moved 4 provinces away to a place where I knew no one (and I'm single so I moved all on my own) but I moved out here for a job I love. I broke my ankle 2 years ago and have been very determined to lose weight to help take some of the pressure off my ankles. I haven't really put much effort into it until this year and I'm working out with an actual exercise class 3 times a week but my motivation for the healthy eating thing is really lacking so I figured I'd try to come back and get some help with motivation and such from here. I also got a fit bit for Christmas so that's also helping me keep the motivation for the exercise. But exercise alone isn't working , I NEED to incorporate the eating too. But having been doing more exercise the past 2 months than I have in a long time and seeing no results is getting frustrating. Anyway, that's me and a bit about why I'm here.

Hello everyone! My name is Crystal and I am also not new to the Done girls group but I have been away mentally and physically for many years! At least 7 to be exact. I am 32 years old and have been diagnosed with PCOS for which my doctor claims that only weight loss surgery is the answer. I am here to prove them wrong. I want to get my life on track and feel more comfortable in my own body. I know how amazing this group is and what can be accomplished when you have a great support system. I have managed to jumpstart my weight loss and lose almost 5 lbs this week but I have a long road ahead of me.

I work in the food service industry and I am surround by food at least 5 days a week. My job keeps me on my feet so I have added a fitbit this go round to try and monitor my steps to aid in weight loss. I am married with no children but I do have one in heaven that unfortunately PCOS took away before they could be born. That took a toll on me for many years but I have been able to look to the future and know that I will meet them someday.

I look forward to meeting all of you and getting to know you all! In Done we trust!

HI! My name is Sara and I am 33 years old, mother to two and one baby in heaven. I homeschool my kids and so it is often hard for me to feel ok taking the time to myself but I know I need to and will ultimately be good for my kids. My kids are very active with their dance and acrobatics classes and I want them to see mommy being active too.

I decided to take dancing back up again as I have missed it so much and was blessed enough to find a class for adults! So that is one big reason I want to lose weight. I am SO over being this big! I have been struggling since the birth of my son to be a "normal" size. I need to lose at least 100 pounds. I am really not sure what my ideal weight is yet, I never weighed very often back when I was thin so I have no idea what that looks like for me.

I want to be healthy and energetic and feel my very best and live life to the fullest! I have lost 30 pounds many times quickly only to gain it back after many months. I don't want to burn out this time. I want this to stick, I want to change my lifestyle for good! I never want to feel this way again. I never want to be embarrassed over my stomach again or asked if I am pregnant again. And my kids are getting bigger now and I don't want them to be embarrassed by mommy either. So far that hasn't happened and I don't want it to start happening, that would break my heart. I don't want them to be the kids with the fat mommy.

One day they pointed out a woman and said mommy that lady looks like you from the back, and I was like what?! I look that big!? Not to be mean to the lady just I had no idea I looked like that! I don't FEEL like a fat person, I just feel like me. I look in the mirror and it is like who is that? I will recognize myself again! 2016 is my year! This is it!

Hello and happy Monday!
I am not new to this team but I have been absent for too many years. I have recently lost 50 pounds and am working on moving from using the Weight Watchers app to only using Spark People. I was able to lose 75 pounds about 6 years ago using SP but lost my way....and gained all that weight back. I started eating low sugar and was losing weight. I work for my local school district where they offered weight watchers for $25 for 14 weeks. I lost 25 pounds using it and attending meetings, but it is an expense I do not want to take on. Any way, I am about 5 pounds from one-derland and am looking forward to getting back to something that I know can work for me. Have a wonderful week all!

Hey everyone! My name is Kristin and I am needing some super support! My husband and I have decided to start getting serious about our health so that we can be around for our one year old son! The problem is that we don't have many support persons in our life and even fewer babysitters. I have to work out in the mornings and my husband works out in the evenings so that someone is always there for our baby. We aren't able to work out together (on weekends when it gets warmer we plan on doing physical outdoor activities as a family), which makes it hard. I've been working on this for three weeks and haven't lost anything, so I'm a little down on myself. Hoping to get some support because I am so done being the fat girl!

Done being the big girl. Chunky, thick, chubby- whatever you want to call it. I have been athletic my whole life but my body never portrayed it. I want my hard work to show.

Valerie here, live in Cleveland Ohio, divorced several years ago. I have 3 adult sons, (2 are stepsons as FYI) I am 52 and starting my life over in the middle. My high weight was 360 and I am working to get back to a healthy weight.

I have been on and off spark people and find I do better with support and when I track my food.

I want my life back, and am taking it back, one day at a time.

"As long as I am abstinent today, my goal weight is what I weigh today...if I am abstinent today, my weight is exactly what God wants it to be today." pg 130 OA second edition. www.oa.org
What a blessing to do the work and leave the results to my Higher Power.
Blessings! Valerie

Hi everyone. I'm just coming back to Spark and the group after being gone for awhile. I have more determination this time round and I have kept with my plan and my workout. I'm looking forward to seeing how I do at weigh in and I'm not going to be down if I don't do well either. I'm in this for the long haul.

I'm not really new but I haven't been on for at least 3 years. I'm back! I'm doing everything I can to surround myself with healthy-minded activities, so of course I had to come back to the done girls! Good luck all!

Hello everyone! My name is Valerie. I am almost 43 years old. I have been sparking for almost for years. I lost 30 pounds originally. The yo yoed up & down for a while. Last year was an extremely challenging year for my family with my Hubby's cancer diagnosis. After surgery & radiation treatments he is now doing much better, thankfully. However I found myself at my highest weight ever, and it's time to change that. Enough is enough. Iam done. I have been "back" for about a month now and already seeing results on the scale! :)

Hello everyone. I'm not really new. I am returning. I have gotten my life back on track and got a stronger support group around me this time. So, this time I can reach my goals. I am a 42y/o mother of 2 boys(17&19). I love to hike, swim and walk on the tredmill and just zone out with my music. I need lots of support and people to hold me accountable. My official start date is Jan19th when classes start again but I figure I can start tracking food and mood now. I have a journal that I am writing everything down in. I am looking to all of your posts and reading about your personal stories. And supporting as many people as I can.

Hi everyone. I'm not new to spark people or this team but after a long hiatus I feel like a newbie. Since leaving spark people I have regained all the weight I had originally lost, fell off the workout wagon and generally just let everything I had achieved float away. So instead of just starting the new year getting back on track I'm going to end this one on a positive note. My first step was to come back here for the help and support that spark people offers.

Hi everyone! My name is Helen and I'm 36 years old. I have high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol. I'll be the first to admit I LOVE food. When I'm stressed I turn to food. When I'm sad I turn to food. When I'm mad I turn to food. Food has become sort of my best friend. In fact it is my best friend. It's time for me to find new friends to turn to when I'm stressed, sad, and mad. If you are in the same boat as me please don't hesitate to add me. I need all the help and support I can get. I promise to do the same for you.

Helen

Hi, all!
This is not my first time around the block...not on SP and not in this team.
But something I'm realizing is that I can't do it on my own - I need support and community. I need to be able to offer support, too, which helps me to stay motivated.
I'm only a few pounds away from my lifetime highest weight and I am absolutely SICK of feeling so SICK.

Hi everyone! SP has worked so well for me in the past, but the last couple years have been really hard for me. I'm at my highest weight ever. I started a new job and lived far away from all my friends and family, and I really wasn't happy. Now I'm living close to home again and loving grad school! And I'm ready for a change :) emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi, my name is Debra and I'm looking forward to being a member of the team. This looks like a great group, and I love the name! I'm 60 yrs old, was a nurse for 30 years. I had a heart attack a couple of years ago and 3 stents; have COPD, and arthritic changes in my knees; the right one may be a candidate for replacement but I'm doing physical therapy to try to put that off or at least make the rehab easier. I've been a member of SP for quite a while but fell off ALL my wagons, and it's time to recommit myself and be DONE with all this extra fat. I look forward to meeting all of you.

Hi everyone,
My name is Jody and i'm new here.
I've been on a lifelong struggle with chubby/overweight/obese and it has been an exhausting one. This year I was at my highest weight for a time, until...
I was recently acutely ill in hospital for 10 days and lost 25 pounds. Since i've been home i've lost another 11 - the loss in hospital helped me to kick start a healthier outlook again. I am slowly regaining strength and energy and have been walking my dogs 30 minutes most days the past 2.5 weeks.
I'm feeling very determined to stick to my healthier ways now so i've been on Spark for about 10 days and have been exploring groups that are active and supportive. I found your group tonight and it looks like a good one! Hope we can be supportive to each other on this journey. Peace to all.

My name is Donna and I am 20 years Sober. Sadly my food addiction & emotional eating has been a yo yo. I always knew I had a blank spot in my memory in my childhood and it finally cleared and I saw the child abuse from a friend & customer from my father's restaurant. I was in I believe 5th grade. So now a lot of behavior has been recognized It has been a very long time coming as I turned 66 in May. I have been on SP on and off for a few years and now I have made my commitment to stick. I still have my ups and downs, but I am going for it all. I want to get off all my medications and say good bye to my Being that fat girl. so I need to lose 100+ pounds.
Looking forward to being part of this group. Thank You

I'm coming back to Spark after about a 3 year absence (had a few false starts between now and then).

I am done being the fat girl. I was down to 198 last December (at my heaviest I was 308) but my marriage tanked (domestic abuse) and I was homeless over the summer as a result.

During those last few months before I was living on the street I packed on 50 pounds, and I've since lost 8 pounds of it now that I have a place to live again and I'm able to make healthier eating choices (95% of what food you can get when you're homeless is processed stuff loaded with high fructose corn syrup and white flour), but there's a lot of ground to cover still.

I want to get back to that sweet 198 again (I miss my clothes!) and then back to my overall goal of 140 after that.

Hello!

I joined this team a few weeks ago but I let my inner fat girl take over me again. I logged in for the first time in a while this morning and noticed a bunch of greetings from this team. It makes me happy that I found an active supportive group. I'm looking forward to sharing my weight loss journey with you all!

emoticon My name is Paula and I saw this group on member's page after reading her blogs. Looks like a active group. So I am excited to read other peoples post on here. I am half way to my goal now. I lost 50 pounds in a year. Then I had weight loss surgery called the sleeve. It makes my stomach the size of a banana. But since I had it done in June of this year I have lost another 35 pounds. I can still have a lot of support. It isn't as easy as you would think

emoticon Thanks for letting me join..

Weight loss surgery on 6-8-2015.
