My name is Liz, this is a second go around for SparkPeople for me. I just went for my annual check up and was given the news that I might be diabetic. I have to do more testing to see for sure, but it has sparked a new motivation for me to really focus on my health and weight. I am 29, a RN case manager for a pediatric home health agency and I absolutely love my job.

Hi! I'm new and wanting a few friends. I'm trying to lose 50-60 pounds and could use encouragement. I gladly provide encouragement back. If you are in the Fishers, Carmel, Indianapolis, Indiana area, I am available to walk or workout at the YMCA.

Hello. I am getting back on track since I've hit a plateau. In August 2013 I weighed 350 pounds and I am currently at 290. I know my nutrition is not a good as it should be but I am committed to changing that. I live on the west side of Indianapolis, near Avon/Plainfield if anybody wants a workout buddy. I am a member at LA Fitness.

This is my 2nd time here on Spark. I joined originally as a 235 pound overweight, sad woman in 2009 when my now ex husband was deployed. I learned a lot of good tactics to lose weight and discovered the runner buried deep inside of me. During my duration on Spark I became a three time 1/2 marathoner.

Last year I became unexpectedly pregnant. I was told I would never have a child for 15 years of my life... imagine my surprise when I had a positive pregnancy test. I now have three beautiful children... An adopted 6 & 7 year old and baby!

Being a single mom, I just can't seem to get my act together. I need something to help get me back on track and back to being the girl I used to be...A Runner Girl!!! I know she is still there...yesterday was beautiful and gorgeous out. My son knows me too well. Riding home in the car from school, he said "mom I bet you would love to be out running right now!" He was very much right!

I wanted to lace up my sneakers and hit the pavement like it was a drug.

I posted a picture of me at the finishing line of my first 1/2 marathon for motivation.

I will get fit for me.
I will get fit for my children.
I will become runner girl again!

Time to get healthy and love myself for who I am and who I will become.

Run long, run hard, enjoy the pavement!

Hi Brittany. My name is Brandi. I'm 26, from Indianapolis also. I noticed we are around the same weight. I am 158 pounds. I lost 20 pounds last year but recently gained 15 back. I'm just starting back at it, hoping to lose 20-25 by this summer, preferably by the time My husband and I leave for Vegas in a couple of months =) I thought we could give each other some support since were around the same age, weight etc. Good luck in your journey !!

Hi, I a have been here at spark for sometime but looking for new friends and motivation, searching for new teams and challenges, I live in Madison so I was ecstatic to find this group, I have about 45 lbs to lose , I do workout but my eating seems to be the problem ( stress eater and lousy job) b ut I am planning to get past this, THANKS !!!

( only those who risk going to far know how far they can go)

self control is knowing you can and deciding you wont

the only thing you can't do ....is what you dont think you can do!!!!!.

Hello all!!
My name is Brittany and I'm 25. I actually used SparkPeople about 5 years ago and dropped a good amount of weight and ended up becoming a personal trainer at my local gym. Since then, I started working a full time job in accounting and have just completely gained it all back!
I know all the right things to do, I just gotta do them and the more support I can get (and give) the better.
Looking forward to getting to know a few new people in indy with the same mindset! Good Luck to you all!

My name is Gina. My husband and I live in Southport. We are relatively new to the area. I am a Middle School science and math teacher who loves to sew, read, write, and walk. I have been overweight all my life. I am 40 and have made peace with my body but I would like to start eating better and treating myself with some more compassion.

It has to work out. It has no choice but to work out.

Hello my name is Charles. I have been on sparkpeople for awhile now but never really use the site. I've made up my mind that's it time I make a positive change in my life. I live on the eastside of Indy and would like to find a walking buddy because I really need the support.

ANGIESG. I haven't done Slim in 6, but I'm a nut for Beachbody products. My favorite program is Turbo Fire, but right now I'm trying out the Les Mills Combat. If you ever have any questions about another program let me know.

My name is Brittney, I live in the Fishers area and have been trying to lose weight for the past years. I will start a program and never see it through. I don't try to give up I just get unmotivated. I need to keep myself more accountable by writing on here and finding a spark buddy so we can keep each other accountable. I am starting the C25K. Slow and steady I can do this!

Hi Cathy :) Slim In 6 is a beachbody(easier than p90x) workout, its a 6 week workout plan. Ive never done water zumba or even zumba for that matter..my dancing skills are pretty scary. Spark buddies would be great..if I can figure out how to do that.

Hi, I'm Sandra and I live on the Southwest side of Indy near Fountain Square. I am returning to Spark People after a couple years because I saw results when I committed to it, and I'm ready to make the necessary changes to improve my health.

I am married to a supportive husband who loves me no matter how much I weigh. We have been married 13 yrs. I don't have children due to infertility issues and PCOS, though I know weight loss can improve my chances of having children. I am leaving this in God's hands, and I am also asking for wisdom to make better choices.

I am a mixed-media artist and I enjoy doing collages, altered art, and painting. Occasionally I do freelance graphic art or drawings/paintings commissions. My goal is to have a local art show by Spring of 2013.

I am happy to be part of the Indy team, and I have been inspired by your stories. IndyGirl especially has been an inspiration to me. I'm hoping to come to the Dec 1 meeting at Jonathan Byrd's. (trying to work out transportation)

Blessings,
Sandra

Hi Indy Sparkers~~ my name is Karah. I have been a member of Spark since 2008. In 2009, I was 12 lbs to my goal weight and gained almost all of my weight back. So, here I am again, trying to lose. However, my fat must like me because it is NOT leaving my body!

I live on the NE side of Indy for about 16yrs and I think I have out grown my town. I am a single Mom and my community is very family oriented, so I stick out like a sore thumb! One more year, then my son will be off to college, starting his journey so I have time to figure out mine!

I work p/t going to school f/t getting my RN degree. Schedule is hectic at times, but I am hoping to meet a Spark friend soon~~

Wishing everyone much success on their goals

Karah
Having another chance to get it right~ SP

Hello people! I just joined this group today! I've been in Indy for about 7 years. I'm originally from northern Indiana (Warsaw). I am 27 years old and have been up and down in my weight for about a decade and a half. I finally found peace within myself and want to push myself to eat healthier and exercise more. I would love to be someone's diet/workout partner to help motivate each other if anyone needs motivation!

Hi! I relocated back to Indy and work on the east side. We have 3 houses to sell before we can find a home in Indy so I'm living with my daughter and her family during the week and driving back to southern Indiana on weekends. All the stress of a new job, no home, missing my husband, and living with my daughter (even though they are wonderful!) has resulted in 20 lbs weight gain. Ugh. I am starting small with small changes: write down my food, sleep 8 hours per night, and exercise 10 minutes per day. I'm writing this so I can hold myself accountable ;0)

Peace and Love!

I have been with Spark People for a while but kinda fell off the wagon and I am now trying really hard to stick with it. I want to make better choices and be a role model to my family and friends. I am looking forward joining with the Spark Peeps of Indianapolis and doing my part to re-invent the way we are seen!

Hello! I am brand new to SparkPeople and I am done being new to various programs and letting them fade into the background. I live in North Indy and I would love an accountabilibuddy! I am in the upper 100's and looking to go back to the low 100's!! When I last had a work out buddy we were both in the mid 100's (meaning lbs : ) ...) and able to work our way down to the low 100's and maintain it for a year.

Hi, my name is Jessica. I am 32 & am trying to lose at least 50 lbs. & get in shape. I live on the southeast side & work downtown. I have always battled with my weight & find it very frustrating! I lost 50 lbs. for my wedding but now a year in a half later I have gained it all back plus some. I am hoping joining a team will help me too stay motivated & meet new work out buddies. Good luck to everyone!

Hi Everyone!

I'm Gretchen and am turning 30 in about 2 weeks. I live in Broad Ripple. I've got about 50 pounds that I'm looking to lose this year, as well as just some changes for health (give up my diet coke addiction for example)

I'm hoping SP and you all in Indy can help me keep on the right track!

Hey everyone...I'm George. I'm from Indianapolis. I just recently started getting into the whole exercise thing and low carb diet. I am on a doctors weight loss plan so we will see how it goes. I made this account a while back...but I decided it is time to get serious. I am actually enjoying it and feeling a lot better already. I have been on the diet for about 3 weeks so far.

I'm relatively new to Spark (40 days) and recently broke my hand as well.

I'm originally from Evansville, but moving to Indy in a matter of days for a new job (southwest...near Plainfield and Camby). I'm excited about the move, and just hope the move and the hand don't prevent me from achieving my goals.

40 days ago I weighed in at 207.4 pounds...the highest I've ever weighed (my old running weight was in the lower 160's). In 40 days, I've lost 21 pounds and just weighed in this morning at 186.4 pounds. If I can keep things moving forward with my injury and move, I'd like to be around 180 at least by my birthday on the 18th of April, and under 175 by the end of April.

Upon reaching my goal weight, I want to get back into lifting (which I can't do with my broken hand) and get stronger. I also want to get back to running marathons (or more likely 1/2 marathons) at a relatively competitive pace.

Hi I am Pam from Indy's west side. Most of my life I have struggled with my weight. It is in the family genes. My highest weight was 253. About 4 years ago I lost and got down to 163 but instantly jumped back to173. I stayed there for a few years but I have recently started gaining again. I have reached the 200 mark again. I am sure the 50's and menopause don't help along with arthritis. I want to get it off and keep it off this time. I am hoping that this site will help encourage me to do it this time.

I will succeed

Hi all

I live on the East side. My job requires that I travel a lot. I would sure like to fit into those airlines seats without feeling like a cork about to pop!! Seems like I've been on every diet out there and I have a really hard time staying motivated. I look forward to joining this team and moving forward.

I'm Krystle and live on the south side. I'm 28 and love to play soccer. I also enjoy scrapbooking, reading, hanging out with friends and family, and watching a number of different sports. I started my weight loss journey almost 2 years ago and have lost a little over a 100 lbs. Most of the weight lost occurred during that first year and I've been bouncing between a 10 lb range since then. About 2 months ago I started to get discouraged at what I kept seeing on the scale and decided that I was going to start adding weight training in order to tone and not worry so much about the actual number on the scale. I recently ran across this website while do some research on a topic I was curious about. I signed up just to try a different route. Since I signed up towards the end of last week, I decided to wait til today to really start incorporating this into my workout/calorie tracking plan I have been working with.

Hi SparkPeople, My name is Raeann and I am a 38 yr.old mother of 4, from the ages of 21-7. I also have 1 very bright grandson. Im happily married to my wonderful husband who supports me in everything, and also enables me in everything LOL.. At one time not too long ago I tried to do it all: work full time, go to school, volunteer for church, sports, clubs, and be the neighborhood mom. Dont get me wrong, I love doing all that great stuff. Im 40 lbs overweight. When I take a BMI test it says Im obese. I hate to look at photos of me now, my clothes are getting smaller and smaller each season, I dont recognize myself in the mirror any more. I dont like who I have become. Thankfully I found SP while searching the web for some kind of help. So far, it has been great motivation, educational, and awesome support system. Right now I am working on controlling my calorie intake, trying to eat healthy clean food.
