emoticon, there!

Just take it one day at a time. Do a little bit and gradually add on to it. Don't try to go 'all out'.

Kids can be a great source of exercise, go for walks with your BF. Take the goodies out of the house and replace them with fruits & veggies. Stay away from the soda.

Hi I can' remember if I introduces myself in this group or not yet. so I am doing it now :)

I am a single mother of 4, Live up in the mountains with few gym options in a small town. I have little motivation due to the fact that I only have my kids and BF to encourage me. I have been a member on SP since 2008 I have started and stoped a million times...and I am still trying.I still want to reunite with my skinny self of pre-kids. :( I was a very small petite 5'1" 103lbs young woman.and I know at 38 I can't get back to that size and look healthy, but I would love to just get down to 145 at this point! if the weight keeps falling off after that...then fine but my goal is 145.

Hello Everyone! Happy to be here...I just joined the team and so pumped to find you!
Where the mind goes the body follows! I have been involved with SparkPeople since September 2012, and enjoy the site and all the benefits it has to offer.
As we wind down this year, and gear up for 2013, I have to say, that it has been a great year and 2013 will prove to be as exciting.
I am 52 years young, born on Feb 29th. I have two beautiful daughters, one grandson, a husband, who is very supportive and accompanies me to the gym, and one furry member of the family, Mae..my dog. Mae is my four legged walking companion, she makes sure I get enough walking in everyday...

I am looking for accountability and motivation. I need follow through to the end of every day. I've had the same 20 (then 25) pounds to lose for years. I can do ok for breakfast and lunch and then seem to throw it all away at dinner time. I need end of the day tips/motivation. Just joined yesterday and I really like the site already. emoticon

Hi- My name is Jennifer. I am new to this group as well as SP. I just want to keep moving forward. I am tired of gaining back the weight I have lost...and I am not going to any more! I am going to do whatever it takes to keep moving forward.

Hi everyone, I am new to the group. I am a few pounds from my goal weight and need a supportive and motivating group to help me stay on goal. I live in Oregon, the rain and cold will bring my workouts indoors. Looking forward to sharing and learning from the membership.

I am Onyx.

I found this group. I am here to find and give motivation and such.

I think we all need a bit of that at times....

I saw this on the back of a Type O Negative album (I've forgotten which one) and I really liked it. I've been borrowing it ever since.

Enjoy!

emoticon Hello team! I'm Debbie and just found this team, obviously. I work with a bunch of gossiping, drama-loving, complaining downers so I need ALL the positive good vibes I can get. I started keeping to myself more this last month, not rude, just not taking part in their daily ripping someone apart behind their backs conversations. I'm single, have a dog and like to inspire as well as be inspired by good people. Looking forward to this team's activities. AND...love that the team is active! Nothing worse than joining a team that sounds hopeful only to never post anything...lol.

Hi Michele. Yes I did S90. I completed a cycle and then some last year. I still use some of the DVD workouts. It was a great series but it hurt my knees.

I saw on your Blog where you did, or are still doing(?) S90. Are you talking about Supreme 90? If so, I completed that a couple months ago. I really liked that!

I guess I never introduced myself.

My name is Kathy and I've been trying to get my focus back. I lost 42 lbs 2 years ago, and then it slowly crept back on. I'm still down 10 of the original 42, but I need to loose a lot more.

Hi! My name is Sheri. I love a positive attitude so I thought this is my team! Would love to lose 49 lbs by next summer. I have completed the last 2 days challenges, they make me feel like I can do this. I can do anything for just one day and it motivates me to keep on going!

Hi All!

I'm new to the team. My name is Lala and I would like to lose about 45 more pounds. I'm glad I found this team, I admire motivational and positive people. I don't think I would've made it this far without support from public forums.

Best of luck to everyone reaching their goals emoticon

I don't know too much about diabetes or pre-diabetes so I don't dare advise you as to your questions. My best advice would be to check with your doctor.

Hello to all!

I am new to spark, and I am fascinated and impressed with all there is to do on this website. I'm following the diabetic meal plan and exercising up a storm. This is very motivating, and I can't believe it's free. I started at 192 and in one week I am down to 186. My blood sugar has been falling also. I am diagnosed with pre-diabetes with fasting blood sugar ranging from 117-153. My question is....Does your blood sugar fall impressively with only one week of dieting and exercise? This morning hubby and I rode our bikes for 1hour, 15 minutes. I got incredibly sleepy about an hour after lunch. 3/4 c chili and 1/2 c brown rice. I took a short nap...which I am known for, and still have been tired all afternoon. I checked by blood sugar pre-dinner and it was 82. My blood sugar hasn't been that low in years. I ate supper....1/2 banana, 1 1/2 T peanut butter, 5 carrots, and tea and I am feeling better now. Any thoughts? I have a big problem with sleepiness:) Thank you new friends!

Hello, I’m Jessica and this is my 5th alter ego with Sparkpeople. I felt it was necessary because after losing 40 lbs earlier this year (Jan-Apr) with Spark, I fell off the wagon. I went from 216 to 224.8 where I started back up this week. Now my ultimate goal is to hit 160, but I want to eat better, lose the stress, and reduce the to-do’s on my to-do list of life. Which as a mother, volunteer, employee, business owner, wife, sister, etc…… (we all wear many hats), the list is never ending. I am looking for supportive friends, who won’t hesitate to kick my butt!

Find me on facebook too… facebook.com/rainnnaturelover

I look forward to learning from this team, and being done with losing weight. Some day I’d like to simply focus on maintaining it. 

Hi everyone! I'm Kat and I'm new to this team. I joined SparkPeople way back in 2009 but I dropped out a few months later. Now I'm back again and planning to stay for good :)

I don't really have much weight to lose - maybe 10lbs at most - and I do love working out, but still there are days when I need the motivation to keep me going, that's why I joined this group.

Thank you for the warm welcome! I think the day job steals more of me than the little one at the moment, and but it's SO true. I've been brainlessly eating and sitting behind a screen scrambling with deadlines for almost 2 years. I used to hike every weekend--and I'd love to get back to being fit enough to tackle a trail again!

Am dipping my toes in the forums and exploring a new "zone" of the site each day, so you'll definitely see more of me about! I think this will be an awesome home for success. emoticon

Happy Tuesday, all! I'm new to the team--and to SparkPeople--and hoping for great things!

I write fiction, bake quick breads (woohoo easy fruit and veggies!), QA and write manuals for software, and I'm a new first-time mom. Since my baby girl's now around 18 months, I realized with a lot of embarrassment over how much time has simply slipped past, "Oops. I can't use that as an excuse for not shedding the pounds and whipping my abs back into shape anymore, can I?"

Over the weekend I got a great head-start on my goals. But today is back to the forever-hours-a-week day job, as well as my fiction writing schedule, so my challenge will be to continue to meet my health and fitness goals while keeping everything else moving forward as well. I do best when I'm busy--I don't know why I seem to keep forgetting that. emoticon

Hello, I'm Stephanie from NC. I've been a SP member since 2007 with long periods of inactivity. Since 2007, I've lost weight three times only to gain it back. This time I gained it back plus 15lbs. I'm heavier than I've ever been. I want to lose the weight and keep it off. I looking forward to meeting members, learning strategies for maintaining motivation and eliminating the negative self talk.



What you do today can improve all your tomorrows.

Hi Everyone!

My name is Tina and I decided to join because even though I'm sort of new to SP, this team really appealed to me.

I need to lose another 15-ish pounds to feel good and healthy. I'm 5'2 and if I can get to 135 I feel strong and my joints don't hurt. Anything below that is gravy ... er ... some other healthy side dish....

My name is Audrey and I'm 53. I joined this group with the hope that it will help me stay focused and not give in to the temptation to overeat. Currently, I am simply working on exercising more and NOT overeating. I want to practice eating only when I'm actually hungry

Right now I'm really busy so I apologize for not particitpating more but as soon as my novella is complete - in about 3 weeks, I will have more time to focus on this. I look forward to getting to know you all. emoticon

Hi everyone from Ohio here! My name is Melissa and I am a 41 year old mom of three ages 16, 20, and 22. I have been a member of SparkPeople for some time but have been inactive for a while. I have been on a serious weight loss journey for about 2 years and am down 143 lbs as of today! My goal is to keep it off as well as to lose body fat and build muscle mass. I love working out and spend at least 2.5 hours in the gym every day. I also am a full time grad student. I usually am a pretty positive person but am struggling a bit today because I saw a bunch of pretty boies in the gym that I know I will never look like! I will get over it and I think joining this team will help me to keep positive and keep moving forward!!

Hi team and thanks for the welcome! I am 57, have 2 daughters and 2 grandchildren and a husband I've been married to 6 years this November. My husband has become very negative due to numerous health issues he has been dealing with the past couple years, so I have to try extra hard to make sure I have some positive influences to keep me from falling into his black hole. I saw this team and thought this may be just want I need to help balance my life! I hope that I can help to encourage others on the team as well.
