Hi. I'm Bijou and my husband and I are owned by two naughty dogs. I first joined Spark People back in 2008 and have been a member off and on since then. I fully understand how everything on Spark People works, thanks. I'm here looking for commiseration, motivation and encouragement.

In a little more than 10 months, my husband and I are planning on making a move from one corner of the country to the other. When I show up in my new town, I want to be a new, improved version of myself. I'm all about taking chances and diving in head first.

Hello, my name is Theresa and I am new to this group. Have been on SP for about 6 weeks. I have lost 12 pounds but need to loose much more. I have 3 granddaughter's and 2 grandsons. I also have a husband of 34 years and we have 4 sons. I work full time and try to see the grands at least once a week. I have a very hard time putting myself first. And that is so important in this journey. Any words of encourage are much appreciated and I would love to do the same for you. Any suggestions are very welcome also.

I'm dawn. my middle name is stress this month. I have a 19 year old daughter who was born with multiple disabilities. turned 16, she started having issues with psychosis, anxiety, and depression. and in the last month, literally, oh joy, we have found out she has brain lesion and something called insullinemia (not sure if spelled right). her body makes too much insulin. we and my mom got an apartment together in November when I left my abusive boyfriend of 14 years. I work as a substitute in a preschool program, so if I can't work because of my daughter I don't. that's what I've done since she was 3 years old. lost 50 pounds or so but still need to lose quite a few more so joined SPARK. sick of feeling fat. I know that sounds horrible, but that is the way I feel. I don't want to be the fat girl any more. I am done. who knew spark had a group? LOL
there's me and my family in a nutshell

Newbie checking in! Look out...it's a novel! emoticon

I'm 43 and a mom to 3 SUPER kiddos (26, 23 & 8). I also have one adorable grandson who's almost 3. I've struggled with my weight since my oldest son was born in 1989. I've also had my battles with sickness as I have Asthma and take steroids way too often. Through it all, and even being overweight (currently about 60 lbs but as much as 100 lbs two winters ago), I've been a runner. I'm so slow!! But...I'm in for the distance not the speed.

With all that being said...I recently discovered something called the Tough Mudder. In our area (mountainous Vermont) it's about 11 miles (mostly uphill) and filled with crazy obstacles. They travel all over the world doing these events and my Husband recently worked one. Since then he has challenged me to do it with him when it returns this time next year. It's not a race. It's a challenge to push yourself. It's geared towards team participation and no Mudder gets left behind. My two adult sons are joining us and we plan to be an awesome team!

I've got a ways to go, but I really want to do this. It looks like so much fun! I'd also like to do a half marathon and eventually an entire marathon. You gotta have goals! I've done a 5k and a 10k previously, but since then, I've gotten sick (again) and I'm currently running a bit more than 2 miles a day.

I've been on SP before and did wonderfully. I met so many caring and supportive people too! Life happened and I drifted away. I've been on lots of sites, but I've never found the level of support and encouragement that I found here. So...I'm back and ready to do this!

I look forward to meeting you all and reaching lots of goals together!

Hello, all! My name is Bee and I am 28. I am a theatre student in Texas, graduating class of 2016. After trying SparkPeople and losing interest and then trying by myself and failing miserably I finally decided that I am worth all the effort it takes to eat right and work out. I am worth skipping big fast food binges and laying in bed all day feeling sorry for myself. I want to finish my college career strong and healthy, ready for what awaits me on the other side (grad school). Please feel free to add me as a friend, I am always looking for new fitness buddies to share inspiration and encouragement with!

If you work really hard, and you're kind, amazing things will happen.- Conan O'Brien

I'm Tracey, 39 and ready to be "ready for anything" which means I need to lose weight . I don't feel like I'm "ready for anything" because of my weight. I know that bad health is just a matter of time, how I've avoided it this long, I don't know! So I'm here. To lose the weight. And I need help!

Hi, all!

I'm SH and I'm 35. I feel like I've been overweight my entire life, but I was recently looking at pictures of myself as a kid and thought: "Wow, that was ... NOT overweight." (Big boned, yeah, but not overweight or flabby). I'd say I gained the most weight during high school and college and didn't slow down after that.

At one point, I was up around 300 lbs. I lost 100 in the WORST WAY POSSIBLE (Atkins/starvation diets, pills, etc.) and (shocker!!!) re-gained about 75 lbs. Sigh. Now I'm at 54lbs overweight and I'm using SP and the things I'm learning here to lose that 54lbs in a healthy way so that I can sustain the loss.

I am Stephani and 62 years old. I have been heavy since high school with in between loses but not for long. I have 5 children and 11 grandchildren. I guess I need more support as I can not seem to get back to caring enough to be healthy. Knee surgery has slowed me down and because the last one was not to successful, I have to be cautious in my activity, over doing sets me back for weeks. any way I really am tired of being the fat girl and being judged less than for my size.

Hi, I'm Ceviz from Holland and have been with SP for 10 days now. I have felt judged and rejected because of my size for the best part of my life and I'm done with it - especially since I discovered that a lot of rejection was in my own mind... In my journey to self-acceptance I found the courage to join ballet and tai chi classes and to my surprise, no one judges me for my size, just for the right or wrong movements.

Not perfect but good enough

I have been "sparkin'" on and off for years now. At one point I lost over 50 lbs, then I got pregnant and gained it all back. emoticon Since then I loose a few and then gain them back - yo-yoing for years now and I am TIRED of it! Looking for some accountability and people who "get it". While my hubby is supportive, he doesn't get how much my weight affects self-esteem.

So I'm back, and digging in deep to finally let go of these extra pounds.

Hi everyone!!!

I have had success with sparkpeople before, and had a huge back slide.

I am back with a mission. Hoping this team is still as active and wonderful as before. Hope to connect with like minded individuals.

I've been making good progress over the summer for each of the past few years, but I haven't been able to keep it going year round (and have gained back what I lost). My goal is to keep it up for good this time around and lose 100+ pounds by August 2016. I've been annoyed that the scale isn't budging much despite me doing everything right, but I will keep at it and be patient -- I know it will pay off, even if it's slower than I had hoped.

This looks like an active group! Let's do this, ladies!!

Greetings!!

I am a 33 year old woman looking to finally gain control over her health. My hubby and I have been married for 5 years and have been trying for a baby since we got married. It hasn't happened yet (2 miscarriages later). I went to the doctor on Tuesday for a fertility assessment and was told I have to lose weight in order to qualify for fertility meds. Ouch!

I have PCOS (Polycystic ovarian syndrome) which affects my fertility and my weight. It makes it harder to lose weight, but I am more determined now than I have ever been!

I just graduated with my bachelor's in Political Theory, Psychology and Gender Studies in December and will be starting in August for the RN program (Registered Nurse). So life will be busy, but it only gets more busy right? I can do this! :D

I welcome any and all friends along my journey. I'm looking to lose a minimum of 170 lbs, but hopefully more. (yikes!) Good luck to everyone on their individual journeys. I hope we can all encourage each other!

XOXOX

Hey All! I am back on spark. Just got busy with work and stuff and fell off the healthy living wagon. .... for like a year... OMG - - -It was over a year and I gained 30 lbs - too much stress in my life and too many take out and drive thru meal.s I have a long way to go - and want to lose weight and tone up - slowly but surely.

Need a fun group of ladies to check in with and connect with - and this seems to be the team to do it with! I am SO DONE - time to get serious and stick with a plan.

Be Great!

Hi, I am kinda new here too! I did Spark a bunch of years ago and started back at it in May, but all of my old spark teams were pretty dead and so were teams that I tried to join. Thankfully someone directed me here! I am so glad to find a group of people who are supporting each other!
My first goal is to loose 20lbs before I go visit my family this summer, I am half way there! My over all goal is to get to a normal BMI.

Hi! I'm Tina. I was around quite a long time ago and am back! I was trying to do it on my own for the last few weeks with the mentality that I can lose weight if I'm on here but if I stop tracking then what. Well obviously that's too big of a leap for me, and I need to start with small steps again. Hoping I can make the changes to get fit. I want to be able to run around with my son and nephew and feel good about myself!

Hi everyone, I've been gone awhile. Have had a rough span, lost my mother and a dear aunt in 6 months. Trying to refocus now and lose some of the weight I've piled on. It feels good to be back!

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.

Im Sally

from New England

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.

wishing all of us good luck on this journey to better our lives by losing unhealthy weight .

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!

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!
