Hey y'all, I'm Patrick...I live out in Pilot Grove, work in Columbia, and feel like I spend all my free time on the road. I've recently been through some pretty major life changes and decided that now was a REALLY good time to start gaining speed on some of the changes that I had been making to my health for the past couple of years. Currrently, I am working full-time and going to school to get my MBA; thankfully, I'll close that chapter in just a couple of weeks and I can really concentrate on getting my weight down and getting healthier! :)

Hi everyone! My name is Candie and I am a 43 yr old mother of three boys. I have gained a lot of weight over the years and need to get it off in a bad way. I had surgery almost two years ago on my back and now my knees are causing me lots of problems. I know the extra weight is making everything worse so i am on a mission to lose 150 lbs which is half of my body weight right now. I recently signed up for a weight loss challenge at work but am the only one on my shift that is doing it. So I will be looking for my support outside of my coworkers which is where I hope you all will come in at. Hope to get to know all of you as time goes by. Let's do this!

I came to Spark after trying several other websites, but none of them had all the stuff that I wanted in one place, like SP does. I have been here for nearly 5 years and I keep coming back.

12 pounds is 12 pounds! You're doing great! Keeping it off is often harder than getting it off. Hang in there!

I was directed to Sparkpeople by a "Lifestyle Coach" through a previous job. I really like the point system and being able to earn points doing simple things. My most difficult obstacle to overcome is portion control and I like that Sparkpeople helps me track food and see how I am doing in regard to portion control and selecting positive food choices. I also like having a place to brag about my victories!
I know it's not much, but since taking this change seriously this time I have lost about 1 lb a month. It's been a crazy year, but I've managed to remove 12 lbs and keep it off!

Peace, Love, and Superglue,

Crystal!

Found SP and thought it was worth a try. I was told by my primary care provider a year ago to get some weight off. I was losing less than a pound a month on my own. Then I started Atkins and did better, but not by much. I've done much better, but I'm hoping to meet some area SparkPeople in person to share extra motivation.

Hi folks! Wow, I'm excited to find this team! I live north of Versailles. Work in Sedalia. I've been on SparkPeople for several years, but am only now getting serious (again) about getting this weight off. Anyway, I'm 55, female, studying Christian counseling through an online Bible college, working in a group home for people with developmental disabilities. Have 4 kids that are basically grown, which I mostly homeschooled. Married, but hubby has dementia and is living in a nursing home, now. So life has it's ups and downs, but it's mostly good and ups. And I love living here! Not sure we'll get the gorgeous colors this fall, but the weather is so beautiful, that I'm loving fall! As for hobbies, we have a cat and a dog, and I play guitar and write songs. I like wild plants, and all kinds of nature study. So anyway, if anybody wants to be friends, I'm game! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I joined Spark because I saw it working for one of my best friends and I knew I needed to get myself healthy. I lost 30 lbs using the fitness and food trackers over 4 1/2 months last summer. The habits I learned here have helped me maintain that loss for the most part. I recently caught myself slipping back into old habits and doing bad things food wise so I'm back. The community has been so helpful. I love reading the tips and getting the encouragement, everyone is always so welcoming, and seeing messages on my pages asking how I'm doing just makes me smile.

I think having support from others is very helpful. I have my own family but there are other people struggling with the same issues that I am having.

It is also very motivating to see how far other people have come. And to learn new things from what others have tried.
