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 have been with SparkPeople 29 days, but just joined the team today. I have already lost 10 pounds since joining, but still 108 to go before meeting my goal. I am looking forward to getting to know all of you on this journey.

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

Hey Everyone!

Just signed up for SP about 10 days ago and still navigating my way through the site. It can be overwhelming!

Was lurking on other posts and saw a suggestion to check out this group so here I am. :)

I'm Barb and I've been married to my hubby for 24 years. No children, but we have a sweet black lab named Emma.

I've struggled with my weight most of my life and am determined to get down to a healthy weight.

I will enjoy the journey along the way.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone.

Hello! I may not be new to Sparkpeople but since I keep forgetting it exists and keep forgetting to stay on track here I am again. Although I would like to take my goal setting offline as much as possible. Spending everyday doing a bunch of health accounting is not something I plan on doing. But I will be doing some basics like tracking my weight, measurements and feelings each week overall and as I get motivated to do more I will. I find I get stuck down internet rabbit holes and get distracted (even if by good things like Sparkpeople and Sparkpeople has opportunities at every corner for a bunch of busy work for sure) that just keep me glued to the computer and that isn't really beneficial to my weight loss goals, it has only enabled my health to worsen. It would be nice to make in real life connections with accountability buddies to help me keep going and get out of the house. Perhaps make long terms friends with good support systems for weigh loss and living healthfully. I have a back condition I've been putting up with almost 20 years which has limited my mobility. I've done a pretty good job maintaining my current weight with my diet but as I age my health worsens due to the lack of mobility and the fears associated with my back have prevented me from being truly independent, as I no longer drive because of it. So yeah, I need to get out and live life. Who is with me? Message me and we can get the ball rolling, exchange info, get to know each other, that sort of thing. To start I'm turning 39 this year, married, no kids (except the furkids) and I like walking around Chollas Lake for starters, eventually building up to Lake Murray, Cowles Mountain hikes or even some of the La Mesa walks events they have with all those stairs. I also want to get in better enough shape so going to shows are not so arduous for me. I live a clean but not sober lifestyle as I do enjoy my drinks and yes I still smoke, but with getting out that should become more recreational and eventually nonexistent. I'm not trying to work miracles there, as all the old quitting method stand bys have failed miserably. I just know once I start getting active though my stress levels will be better and I will have a lessoned tendency to put yet another nail in the coffin.

So if anyone is local to me ,message me! Not sure how active this team is anymore.

Hi my name is Jan and I'm often called 2B.
I have been with Sparks over four years now but I like teams that are active and people interact with one another so this looks like an inviting place to be with challenges.
I love to write inspirational and motivational blogs here at Sparks and I do look forward to getting to know other members on this team..... emoticon

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.
