Hello Everyone. I am Linda. I was looking for an active group of people looking to lose alot of weight. I am in a smaller, more personal group with friends but it isn't very challenging for me. I actually get quite discouraged because I am the biggest one there and the many do not have a lot of weight to lose like I do. I do know that no matter how many pounds you need to lose it can be very challenging for everyone. I guess part of me still feels alone with the obstacles I face. So I decided to see if there are groups that are in the same place or at least close to it. I really need the motivational support to keep up with this journey. It's going to be a long, hard fight.

I should say something about myself. I have been married 15 years. I have a 26 year old son, a 13 year old daughter and a 7 year old grandson. I also have a 6 year old granddaughter but I don't not get to see her. I spend my days working from home as well as homeschooling my daughter, and caring for my grandson on weekends. My daughter is extremely active in dance (6 days a week) so we can be a very busy household. My husband also works from home.

I have been big most of my life. I posted about my past up til now in my spark blog. If you would like to read more the link is below. Long story short.. I love food. My mentality has always been that food is good for any mood and should not be wasted. I am trying to change that mentality. I want to desire good whole foods. I need to stay away from gluten and dairy (intolerance). I need to be healthier for me and my family.



I'm looking forward to getting to know you all. :)

Hi all, my name is Brittany. I am 27, married, and have a one year old. I also go to school full time. Needless to say, my days are pretty busy. I have struggled for a long time with my weight. At it's height, my weight hit 295. However, my body's constant seems to be between 260-270. I am at 260 right now (I have lost 5 pounds in the last two weeks). I started this path of weight loss two weeks ago and need accountability. I have 110 pounds to lose, give or take. My first goal is to fit into my size 20 skinny jeans, lol. I look forward to embarking on this journey with the team and getting to know you all.

I'm a business analyst (sales, inventory, production, supply chain) for a publicly traded corporation, and also a professional astrologer of 30+ years. I live on the beaches of sunny South Florida and have a very wide range of interests (if you can't tell by my two vocations). I'm also a certified life coach and NLP practitioner, among other things... (this year I plan to become certified in hypnosis). I love to study the brain and psychology.

I am at 53, with 4 sons who are beginning to hit their 30s. I play video games, I read graphic novels, I love Doctor Who, I still play with Legos, I'm a total gadget hound, and am one of the techie-go-to persons (i.e. nerds) where I work, including to people who are 10+ years younger than me, and not just with how to use technology, but what is hot, and what is about to hit.

Oh, and I nearly forgot to mention: I'm autistic. What they formally called an "Aspie" before Asperger's disappeared, swallowed into what is now called "autistic spectrum". I always felt autistic was the accurate term, and that "aspies" just wanted to distance themselves from the autism diagnosis, in a form of what I perceive to be self-loathing of their condition. We are what we are. No point bemoaning it, best to leverage it and use it to our advantage. Autism, btw, is a genetic disorder which I believe to be evolutionary in origin, not due to any outside influence (such as toxins).

My year fitness goals are pretty simple - lose 52lbs or at least 1lb per week. I could probably lose more, but I am a cancer survivor, 16 years in remission, which is virtually unheard of with kidney cancer. In the past 16 years I've gained a lot of weight due to what I have recently discovered is a subconscious link in my brain that losing weight = dying. A good friend went on a diet recently and lost 50 lbs and all the while, I was panicking for her. When I asked myself why, I figured out why every time I lose 50lbs, "something happens" and I go off the diet and exercise program I was being successful at. My second fitness goal for the year: to reassure myself and reprogram my subconscious that losing weight = becoming healthy, not a sign of illness.

The plan for losing the 52lbs is as follows:

1) sign up for challenges here
2) follow strength training video workouts 3x a week on alternating days
3) follow classical stretch workouts on days in between the other video workouts
4) learn a recipe from my Thug Kitchen cookbook every week
5) continue to lose weight at 1lb per week, even if I reach a 52lbs weightloss before the year ends, which I expect I will.

The point is to not stop until I'm satisfied that I've reprogrammed my subconscious. I deliberately chose a weight goal that I should reach by sometime this summer, if not sooner, and then reinforce that weightloss = health by not allowing myself to stop the program, so I might actually end up losing closer to 75lbs this year.

Bring forth the genius that is within you.

Hi, My name is Cecelia I am 50, I am not new to Sparkpeople, but have not been actively working on it either. I am looking for a team that is active and can keep me motivated. I have 175 pounds to loose, with two bad knees that require I walk with a cane, so movement is hard, I need to get myself to the gym so I can walk laps. I look forward to getting to know you all.

Hello! I'm back for the third time. I'm here again to do this the right way, and figure out ways to keep off the weight for more than a couple of years. I'm not in the best life position to lose weight, but I'm soooo ready to do it! It's going to be tough, but my quality of life is going downhill because I'm carrying around an extra person again. I'm looking for support to stay on track, and I'm hoping that I can find some people here to do it!

Hi, everyone my name is Tonya. I want to lose at least 100 pounds. I'm employed full time, I'm in college full time, and I'm trying to lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle. Life gets very hectic at times, but staying positive helps me a lot. Everyday I find something to be thankful for, and I always try to find the positive in every negative situation.

Thank you Beverly. You're right, it's time to take care of me. I've finally seen the light in my emotional world, it's time to honor my vessel. I did start tracking food today and actually did a small workout. It's a good start. And tomorrow, I'll start again. Thanks for the support!

You're not alone, Karen. Many of us are struggling with the lose of loved ones recently!

I'm sorry for YOUR losses - it makes it even harder when they all happen one after the other. But now is the time to focus on YOU! Make yourself the priority you know YOU need to be! I won't tell you it will be easy - it won't! But will it be worth it?? You BET!!!

Feel free to join us around the boards and share how you are doing! We'll encourage you all we can!

HUGS!

Hi... I'm another formerly successful Sparkperson back to give it another whirl. Frankly, I'm scared to death that I've treated my body so badly for so long that it's time to pay the piper. I'm not ready to throw in the towel but I'll need some help to believe that I can do it again.
Last time I knew, I had slid over the 400 mark. After a series of losses (MIL, SIL, my mom and then my long time job) within just a few years, I lost my way. Now at 52, I feel the end coming much sooner than I want. The time has come.
If any of you are in the same boat, I'd love to hear from you. It might be easier to force myself out of this (un)comfort zone if I knew I wasn't so alone.
Thanks...
Karen

Hello everyone! My name is Stephanie, and I just recently returned to Sparkpeople. I'm a 44-year-old married mother of two teenage boys, and I started SP at my highest weight of 335 pounds. I hope you'll consider adding me as a friend so we can support each other. I look forward to getting to know all of you.

Hi, I am Kim and I am determined to get this weight off this time. I have been back on Spark for a few months now and I am doing very well this go round.

A little about me, I have 2 grown children a son and a daughter. Both are grown and moved out of home I miss them terribly but my hubby and I are enjoying getting to know each other all over again if that makes any sense. We live in a small town in Ohio.

I love love love to read and to crochet (self taught). I do taxes for a living and I love my job most days.

I started out a little over 300 pounds and I am now down to 258 I still have a ways to go but, I will get there.

I look forward to getting to know everyone!

WI is Midwest in my geography book Dee! Outside of Blondie, I never really had a nickname until I found chat rooms back in the day and that's where Di came from. And since most of the people I know in Chicago came from those chat rooms it's pretty much stuck with me.

18 months apart is really close! My sister was born 2 years 6 months and 1 day after me. The same thing happened with my two oldest granddaughters. In both cases the oldest born in August and the younger born in February.

Thanks for the warm welcome! I really like this team! It's so active and upbeat!

Welcome Di. Growing up they called me Dee-Dee and my sister Di-Di. We laugh about that all the time. We liked to call our brother Brian: Doo-Doo (dough-dough). We are each 1 1/2 years apart from each other. Very close.

emoticon I'm Di! I'm another yo-yo Sparker giving it another go! You know what they say, fall down 7 times, get up 8. And here I am getting up again.

I grew up and raised my kids in a small Iowa town and have lived in Chicago for the last 20 years. I met my husband soon after moving here and married him 14 years ago. My 3 grown kids have given me 8 beautiful grandkids that range from 25-5, and I have a 4 year old great grand daughter.

I have a health issue that's a direct result of the poor choices of the past. And I'm on the verge of a developing a couple more so it's time to make some changes in my lifestyle and attitude.

I've joined a couple of the November challenges and maybe that will awaken the competitor I used to be! Looking forward to getting to getting to know everyone!

Hello Again,

I know it has been months since I stopped by and almost 2 years since actually hanging around for a while and participating. I do lurk from time to time and have missed you all very much.

My biggest challenge to losing weight is stress and time management. They lead to bad food choices and little energy for exercise. I still have all of the same stressors in my life:
1. My mom is still on the slow decline with her health
2. My sister is still bi polar (heavy on the depressed side)
3. My job is still way more work and responsibility than one person should handle

And age doesn't help either - I'll be turning 47 in November. My body is used to being large and doing very little about it. My Blood Pressure has been horrible the last few years and I'd like to get off of the medication I'm on for it.

I am going to start now and get a "jump start" for a new me in 2015.

Hello, to all, I just joined the team, I am not new to SP,, have joined , quit, joined, and just quit coming to the sight so many times I cant count,

Am hoping to make this time stick, Seems, since I reached age 50 the weight is just stacking up and won't budge and i get discouraged and quit trying. I am hoping with motivation I can make it work this time .


Don't know what else to say right now , will post more later

Hi,

I'm new and thought I'd introduce myself. My name is Maggie and I'm new to sparkpeople. I have lots of weight to lose and looking for support to help me do that. This team seemed like a great place to start. Thank you for having me.

Thank you for all the welcome messages and goodies. I feel a bit guilty about taking them as I have been here many times. One of you guessed right away who I was and I was keeping a low profile and just joining this one team as I get too overwhelmed.
I am Sue from UK back again and hope you still want me?

I realise now I cannot cope with the extra pressure that many teams lead to so am just staying with my favourite team and favourite people emoticon emoticon

I have been with Spark almost 3 yrs. I have learned allot. I have have seen success then let it slip away. The last 4 years of my personal life have been challenging but mostly in a very positive. Just super busy. Somehow, I logged in today & feel a little bit of hope that I can get to my goals. I still believe in my goals & the things I have blogged. I sure appreciate Spark & my wonderful friends. Somehow I'll get myself pulled together & make this happen. emoticon

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.
