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!

It is always good to see you --lurking or jumping in. emoticon

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.
