Hi everyone I am new here. I have a massive amount of weight to lose so i'm aiming at 50 lbs. per time as a goal. I have struggled with staying commited to any program and came across sparkpeople while doing an internet search. I'm hoping to meet fun, supportive people who have the same goals as myself. So far i'm liking the website however i'm sure i'm not understanding the entire thing and all the benefits it has to offer so any suggestions and tips would be appreciated !

Hi everyone! emoticon

My name is Stephanie, I am married and the proud mom of two children. I have been using sparkpeople since 2009. I have lost a lot of weight in the past and gained it all back plus some. I am at my third attempt since August 2014 and lost 67 lbs so far. My goal is to lose another 66 lbs in 2015 and maintain it.

I've been on spark for years. I mainly use it now to keep in touch with friends, but I also want to get into the habit of consistent exercise and better eating habits. I've struggled in the past a lot with both, so I am hoping this Winter challenge is the way to keep me accountable. I don't own a scale, I am actually not concerned with the number, I just want to feel healthier, as of right now I don't.

My name is Mary and I'm in my twenties. I am married and have a five year old son. So my journey began about two years ago. I started to notice that I was slowly putting on weight. I was constantly spread thin between being a mom and working/going to school full time and staying up late to hopefully see my husband on skype (he was stationed 1500 miles away in the military). Let me say this about skype: it's amazing. If it wasn't for skype I would have lost my mind worried.
Back to my story, I was gaining weight from all the stress in my life and not having any time to work out. Frankly, working out has never been any fun for me anyways. If there was a reason to skip it, consider exercising skipped!
Over the last year I told myself repeatedly that I had to do something. I took actions a few weeks ago on SP. But I really haven't taken anything seriously. Flash forward to a week ago... I was buying jeans at my favorite store. I have gone from a 26 inch waist to a 31 inch (and that is a tight squeeze to get into the 31 inch waist). Five plus inches? That cannot be right.
I'm trying to keep myself more motivated and I've taken steps to reduce the stress in my life. Now, I just need the help and motivation to lose the weight. I work one full time job, I do not go to school anymore, and my husband is home. Although right now he is working seven days a week so I don't have a whole lot of me or us time.
I'm here to find quick and easy exercise work outs that are fun to you guys. I will be getting my treadmill in about two weeks. I do not have a gym membership. Also my only time I can work out is when my son is sleeping. So no loud work outs. Oh and I do eat fairly well on a regular basis. But I do have a bad habit of grabbing a piece of candy, that turns into a handful, and end up being half the bag. No big deal right?

Hello everyone, I'm Christine, 43 (almost 44), separated, no kids, live in San Jose, CA but originally from Philadelphia, PA (go Eagles!! lol), I have never (not even at birth) been a "normal" weight I've always tipped the scales and about 20 years ago I went from the chubby/fat girl to the morbidly obese/fat girl and I can't do it anymore. My knees ache (arthritis sucks, FYI), my hips ache, my breasts are so heavy that my neck, shoulders, and back ache, and I haven't been able to clip my own toenails in years.

I need to change!

About a year ago I hit 405 and it scared and shocked me. I've since lost about 42 pounds just by paying closer attention to what I'm eating...in a few months I hope to be undergoing a sleeve gastrectomy at which point my changes will go into overdrive!

I don't have a weight loss goal - not a size or a weight - I just want to be healthy (no more high blood pressure!) and active and a happy camper! emoticon

I'm not a very social person, which makes this journey more difficult for me, so I'm hoping that joining these forums will help to keep me motivated!

Also....if you know any cute guys in the Silicon Valley area who like bigger girls please let me know. emoticon

Hello!!!

I'm a 29 year old woman who has been married to my wonderful husband for 10 years. God has blessed us with 2 children. Our son who is 9 and our daughter who is 1. We live in the southern part of Kentucky, but I was born and raised in a small, farming community about 45 min out of Cincinnati, Ohio.

I've always had a hard time with my weight. I always hoped I would grow out of my whole "chunky" stage and I did...just not the way that I was hoping. I grew right out of my "chunky" stage into my current "obese" stage. As of right now, I need to lose around 110 lbs to get to a healthy BMI. Huge task, but with my family's support, you all cheering me on, and God helping me, I know that I can do this!

Feel free to stop by my page and introduce yourself. Also feel free to add me to your friends. I can't wait to meet all of you and to watch you guys not only meet your goals, but bust through them!

I've been active on Spark and working on a new healthy lifestyle for almost two years now. I've lost about 90 lbs and improved my health vastly. I'm working on the last stubborn pounds but I've vowed to be even more stubborn than they are!!
Oh.. my name is Leslie, I'm married and I have two kids (16 and 21), a dog and a cat. Look forward to making more spark friends here!

Hey Everyone!
My name is Jess and I am a 31 year old single missionary living in Latin America! Because I am living in such a small village with not many of the conveniences of the western world (minus internet thank goodness), I've had a really hard time finding a support group in my weight loss journey. I joined spark people a few weeks ago but missed the past 5 days because I was away on a "work" retreat. Now that I am back, I'm ready for action! I am particularly encouraged/motivated today because I just bought a scale on my trip home from the retreat and since I hadn't weighed myself since April (and before that, who knows when) and I'm actually 18lbs lighter than I thought! (I thought I was somewhere around 270 and I actually weigh 252!). I still have a lot to work to do, so any encouragement you could offer would be amazing! And Hopefully I can be just as encouraging back!

Hey, girls! My name is Diana, and this is my second time on SparkPeople! My first time was in 2012, when SparkPeople helped me lose 25 kg, but since then I've been on and off the wagon. Now I'm back, ready to start over for the last time and this time go all the way! I still have about 15 kg to lose, and I have many things to learn to be able to keep everything off. I missed the support here. This team is perfect, there's so much energy and spirit here from all the members! I am very excited to being a part of it! emoticon

Hello, my name is Amanda. I originally joined SP in July of this year. I then had a grueling knee injury followed by surgery and a lot of physical therapy. I logged back in on October 22nd and I am so happy to be back! My goals are to keep positive, be patient with this process, make time to exercise everyday (even if for only 15 minutes on a couple days), become physically stronger and lose about 40 pounds. I love to walk! Walking was my go to exercise before my injury and I am getting back into it...and it feels so good.

Been here a long time ago while I was still in Shelton living with my youngest daughter and her husband and their 2 girls. If you don't remember me my name is Darlene but I like to be called Dar now. I live in Tacoma and would you believe that my youngest daughter and her husband and their youngest daughter is living with me again in a one bedroom apt. Now the oldest granddaughter is in college in Oly while I'm stuck with then again and would you believe there is no room in a one bedroom apt. Lost my husband 9 yrs ago and I'm still a christian lady and going to a very nice Church here in Tacoma just down half mile from were I live now. When I left my old Church there was a pastor named Bruce and now my new pastor is named Bruce. I think God had a plan for me when I told the old Bruce if he moved I would follow him but didn't know God had another Bruce in stored for me.

Anyway I'm glad that I'm back with this team. May God bless each and every one of you.

Hey everyone! I've been absent from SP for a long time but I'm back for some extra accountability. I am 31 and live in MN. I've been pretty successful with weight loss this year but then I got injured and had to have surgery and October I've been eating off the charts and put some lbs back on - less than impressed with that. So I'm back!

Hey! My name is Monica. I'm 31 from Ohio. I've been a Sparky for many many years now, but come and go... I never really followed the meal plan, and decided that obviously what I've been eating isn't working so why not try it out! I have 2 kids, and work Full Time. My husband and I just set a goal to lose 20 lbs by christmas. I'm hoping that with some encouragement from you guys, that I will be able to achieve that!! I'm looking for some friends, so please add me!! emoticon

emoticon Hello my name is Marlene and I am done being a fat girl. Love the name of this team. I'm just sad that it has taken me 6 years to come to this realization. I'm not sorry because I have learned many things about myself, I've come to accept that I can do this. I have learned what my eating triggers are. I know that exercise is vital in the weight loss equation, I realized that I didn't treat myself very nicely by the things I said to myself. I learned that daily tracking, weekly goal setting, weekly evaluations and constantly reviewing my goals and changing them as needed were vitally important to my weight loss. So I will have to say my 6 years on Spark People were not a total failure. Granted I have only lost 13 pounds in the past 6 years, but the lessons I learned were more vital because I now KNOW the formula for loosing weight.

CHRISSYBUCKSBEE; welcome to the wonderful team of DONE. This is a great group; you will find some that have been around consistently and then some of us that have been on again and off again; but I believe we are all positive people with serious goals and we are all in need of support to assist with accomplishing those goals.

Good luck and keep us posted with the good and yes sometimes the not so good.

Hi all! I'm Terry and have been on SP for about 2 months. I've been overweight my entire life and feel like I've been on every diet known to man. Recently I decided it was time to stop worrying about what everyone else thinks and do what I want. As a result I decided to lose some weight and and get healthier. Holding myself accountable with SP is aiding me in my progress.

I've got a wonderfully supportive husband and two dogs that are with me on this journey.

If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading.

Hello ladies; I’m a veteran Sparker and a long lost DONE GIRL; but I’ve been away for far too long. My story is the same as most; on again, off again and so on. I’m back with the hopes of receiving much needed external motivation and support. This has always been a great team and I look forward to sharing in each other’s challenges as well as victories on this journey. I’m glad to be back!

Hey Y'all!! I'm new....ish. I joined spark people a couple years back then life happened! I am rejoining and trying to find my favorite teams to help get the encouragement and such that is needed to help get my weight, health, and life back to where I want it to be! This was by far my favorite team....so I'm back :) Right now I'm still doing personal training 2 x per week and try to fit in at home workouts, but to be perfectly honest I have a hard time motivating myself to do those. I need someone to help with accountability, who will have faith that I can do this because right now I feel that faith in myself wavering and would like it to be back to solid! My eating is getting slightly better, and I'm working day by day to get it back to where it used to be. Any help would be awesome, and any help I can provide to others would be even better! Love y'all and have a great day. Regardless of what life brings you, keep smiling. Your smile will spread to others and that's an awesome thing to catch from someone else!! emoticon

Hi All, I recently re-joined SparkPeople after a fairly serious health scare. It mostly made me realize that I am not living this life to its fullest and that I needed to make some tough changes. I needed a little Spark. I successfully took off over fifty lbs back in 2009 using SP and after some Life got in the way I blew the top off my all time high and being over 35 this time around, let me just say I felt the weight this time. I am working on small steps and making them stick.

Hello everyone! My name is Kendra. I am not new to SparkPeople, but this is a new page for me. I have had problems with losing some weight, then gaining it back in the past. This time feels different though. I have a new found confidence and motivation that I think will really help me to get rid of this weight for good!!! My goal is to lose approximately 125lbs.

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 :)

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 wanted to stop by and introduce myself. My name is Michelle and I live in Canada, I have three great kids a wonderful boyfriend and love life in general :) The only thing that I don't love is my weight lol. I have been battling emotional eating and boredom eating for as long as I can remember (currently I am on the losing end of the battle) I am ready for a change ! I look forward to getting to know new people who share my struggles and know what this battle is really like :)

More sweat now,
Less jiggle later :D

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!!

Hello! My name is Alice and I have belonged on sparkpeople since June 26th (?) I was on Vanessa sparkpage this evening and was looking at the teams she belongs to and saw this team. Thought it looked interesting. I am 62, 5'10" and weigh 449 lbs down from 556 lbs. I had a gastric sleeve done on 3/25/13 and I have lost 107 lbs. I need to lose an additional 30 lbs to have my gastric bypass. I am diabetic, have neuropathy, ulcers on my foot and retinopathy in my eyes. My diabetes is not controlled. I have issues with portion control and having patience with myself! I am REALLY done being a fat girl! emoticon
