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

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.

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 - New to Seussville but feel like I fit right on in emoticon

I am re-starting on Spark after a successful 2013 where I lost 30 pounds, but unfortunately I gained 5 of them back. I've been batteling those five pounds for month now and it is time to get serious again and get back on track. My long term goal is to lose another 70 pounds ... and I need some help and support to do it!

I'm Margo, what a wonderful idea this theme is! McElligot's Pool has great personal meaning for me so I'll incorporate it into my work here. I am around 125 pounds "overweight" but am in my mid-60s and don't think folds of hanging skin (I could not have the operation to remove/fix them) would be an improvement :-) Right now I'm merely working on fitting clothes better/easier, not having to buy them at the fat people's store.

Welcome Jill!

~~ Michelle ~~

Don't waste your time with "could've," "would've" or "should've." Focus on "can," "will," and "do."

Time will pass no matter what .... will I be closer to or farther from my goals

It’s not that some people have willpower and some don’t. It’s that some people are ready to change and others are not. Finally, I am ready to change!

Hi everyone! My name is Michelle. I must have signed up for SparkPeople a while ago, but I have really only been actively using it for the past few weeks and love it! I have well over 100 lbs. to lose which can be daunting. But I choose to focus on all the small steps towards getting there. I look forward to getting to know everyone!

I'm back! It's been a few years since I walked these halls. This time I'm going to the finish line and beyond. I've lost 20 pounds, just a smidgen of what I need to lose, and I can tell the difference between with that extra 20 and without. emoticon

Well, I'm still alive, so there's that…..

Like many here, tried and tried again. However, I'm not a quitter. Not now, Not this time.I'm 320 and have 1year goal to loose 100 lbs. I'll be setting up my spark page over next few days. I'm always open for help or advice. Just stopping here to say Hi.

Hi, My name is Lillie and live in Central Texas. Been with SP since 2006. I'm wanting to lose 100 pounds. I've been dieting on-off since I was 10 years old. Now that I'm 50 I've got to do something about my weight -- It'll soon become a medical issue -- which I do not want!!!

Hi, Susan, and emoticon to the 100+ First Steps Club! We are very glad to have you with us! Please feel free to jump in and join us! We will be starting a new challenge tomorrow and we'd love for you to join us! Watch for the new threads to be posted later this evening!!

I am sorry for your loss! I totally understand as I spent the last 3 plus years taking care of my mother and just lost her the end of February! It was so easy to spend all my time taking care of HER and totally disregard MYSELF!!! I gained big time and am working to get if off now. I am having a really hard time trying to figure out who I am now. But I'm getting there! It's just been a whole lot harder than I ever thought it would! If you ever need anyone to talk to, please look me up!!

Anyway! So glad you are here!!! See you around the boards!!!

Hello, my name is Susan, I'm 56, live in southwestern PA, and I'm back to spark. I joined in 2007, had slight success, and in the process of taking care of my mom, gained back all that I had lost. I used her illness as an excuse to allow me to swallow my emotions with food and to stop taking care of myself. Well Heaven decided it needed another angel the week before thanksgiving, 2013. And I decided I need to get back to concentrating on me. I have lost 50 lbs since then, and I need support to continue. I have never seriously asked for any help from any of the groups I was in previously, but I am hoping I can help others as they can help support and encourage me.

Great achievement requires great perserverance.

Hi, I'm Jessie.

I am in my mid thirties and have been obese since my mid twenties. I have been married to my husband for almost 14 years now and together we have 4 boys ages ranging from 12 years old to 9 months.

I am new to the team but have been with spark people since 2008. Been off and on due to lack of motivation or pregnancy. Last time I was on I lost 45 pounds then I got pregnant. I have gained 10 of that back but still have over 100 pounds to get rid of. I am looking for challenges and even an accountability buddy.

Jessie

This is my first week on Spark People and I have managed to lose 4.2 pounds this week. I have always had a weight problem and I think this site may be the answer to my prayers. emoticon I know I have it in me to do this but I guess I have never really had the motivation to do so.

New to this group. I have been on Spark for awhile, lost some weight slowly, about 45 pounds. I am over 50 years old with another 80-100 pounds to lose. Right now I am stuck. The past year has been challenging. I had my left knee replaced in September, the right replaced 5 weeks later, in October and my wonderful husband died suddenly 6 weeks later, the day before Thanksgiving. I am missing him a lot.

I am physically able to do more exercise than before with my new knees. I can walk for the first time in years. Today I walked more than 10,000 steps. I work out in the water to strengthen my knees and hired a trainer to build strength and endurance.

This team seems like a good place for me.

Hi! I'm the Easter Bunny's friend. I heard a rumor that he was hiding eggs on this team's boards and such. Is that true? Well, I don't see any here!

Another thing that has helped me keep steady (60 pounds lost since October, and lots and lots of strength gained) is to try to get at least 100 SparkPoints a day.

Hi Spankiepoo!

I just read a blog about bare minimum. (Thank you Serene). She set her bare minimum as Log In and Track Every Bite. She made the commitment to do that every day.

I think once you feel a small amount of success... you'll crave the feeling and want to continue. So take that first step.

I hope you'll come back and tell us how you're doing!
