It's a Mary J. Blige song, and an action. It means to me, take charge and responsibility. Do whatever it is that you need to do to grow in the ways that you want to. And by "you" I mean ME! :)

My user name has to do with the beautiful luna moth that hardly anyone sees unless they are up at night, and the great things you can see if you open up your eyes and heart. I need a cheering squad, I need to get 'er done so to speak, and had been a runner but quit do to all things motherhood. I don't want to end up unhealthy and a martyr because I never take time for myself like my mom,. here I am. emoticon

My username refers to B flat cornet, a musical(ish) instrument. You're not supposed to, but people often "cheat" and write the B flat as Bb - which then looks daft in all-caps. Ho hum.

So: I've recently started playing the cornet in a brass band. That's one new departure. I've also recently decided to be healthier, lose weight, eat more wisely, and sort of some stuff. That's another new departure. So the concepts are kind of interlinked - lifestyle changes, go to band, improve life, get fitter, stick to things, yadda yadda!

Am I on the right track here, do you think? I haven't really worked out what I can or should do with SparkPeople, how to get started, etc. But I thought I should give it a try. :)

Ticker = "Minneapolis Max Weight" vs "Very Desirable low BMI lightweight"!

Sorry I just discovered this forum - it took me days to find my sparkmail...the first day I had a notice on top of the page, but it disappeared and I was lost, haha.

My username comes from 2 things: a cartoon character named Kim Possible - her catch phrase was "So not the drama", and my favorite show when I was a kid, Dinosaurs: "Not the mama! Not the mama!"

Yeah, I'm weird, but sometimes weird is good. emoticon

UPDATE: I just wasn't feeling the old username - it seemed very impersonal, so I decided to go with the nickname my son uses for me - Mimi-Nanny, which is a combination of what my great-nephew calls me (Mimi), and what my grand-daughter calls me (Nanny).

Sorry for the confusion. emoticon

My user name is my first name and part of my married name. Though there were times that I was not too comfortable with my name, I have certainly grown to love and appreciate it. Aliki is my aunties name and my grandmother chose it for me. I love it now because it is unique and I want to do it justice emoticon

Sorry I waited until the end of the day to post - newbie here having trouble figuring out what is important.

My username is my first name, Charyl, and my last name. If you look closely, you will find my first name is found within my last name... a joke I told my husband before we got married. Now, he's stuck with me. :-)

The name was pretty much chosen for me by logging in with facebook. I don't mind it, and considering the punny namesake, I think it's pretty cool.

Today (Thursday) was my first day of following the SparkPeople site, from the diet to the exercise, to participating on the forums and starting my blog. So, I truly believe I have had a super day! Looking Forward to MORE!

My first name is Kay, I love walking by the sea and I have 6 grandchildren.

Happiness is remembering what I really want.
Laughter is the best medicine. The best things in life are free.

Learn to say 'no' to the good so you can say 'yes' to the best.

Dream with no action = wishful thinking
Action with no plan = chaos
Dream + action + persistence = success

The ego tells me you can't do it. The spirit tells me I can.

Each time I say "no" to impulse eating, I will visualize fat melting off my body.

My Username is different from what I usually use as I was trying to be a little more creative but not sure that's actually the case. :)

I am a grandmother and the grandchildren call me Nannie. My name is Kathi and one of my granddaughter's calls me Nannie Kathi cause she has two grandma's that she calls Nannie. So I shortened it to NannieKat.

Have an awesome day!!

Gooooooooood Day!!
My username is my Facebook Username and here is how it came about and the history behind it lol. My cousin had been bugging me to join FB and I wasn't sure I wanted to, had heard lot's about it, and wasn't too keen on just everyone that has ever known me to find me or see anything about me so to speak. I thought I would try signing up under a pseudo name which I was used to doing through MSN groups, however the one I had on MSN groups wouldn't really work, so I thought hmmmmm...my children call me Nene which sounds alot similar to my name so I did that then FB argued with me to give a last name and I didn't want to, it wouldn't even take just a letter, finally getting fed up I went Notgonnasay as my last name. As I added family and friends they all thought it was funny and cool so hence there is my username, also now you do know how to contact me on FB and I'm alright with that.
Hope everyone's day remains great. I might not be around a whole lot the next couple days and that could be the case the next few weeks as Tonight is the beginning of Fall Feasts (Holy days) for me, and we have a few back to back sabbaths.
Bless You All emoticon

Blessings

I just felt like I was becoming a little too predictable. I wanted to remind myself that I have wildness within me. Part of my struggle with losing weight is going to hinge around this feeling I have in life that I am not allowed to be myself - too many roles to fulfill. I want to break out of that mindset and expand or uncover some of the things that have been hiding.

9/26 is the day I started, I'm bad with remembering anniversaries, but I wanted to have a date to celebrate this journey on.

Tell us about your username...

C A W stands for Canadian Artillery Wife.

Why did you chose it?

My husband joined the Canadian Forces as an Artillery Officer in 2001. Shortly after he joined, I joined a chat group that was a support network for military spouses and girl friends. I chose the moniker CdnArtyWife. "Arty" being the shortened version of Artillery.


What does it mean to you?

Over the years CdnArtyWife has become such a huge part of my identity. I use the name, or some variation of it, for most all online forums and groups that I've been a part of. People in my online run club at RunningMania.com shortened it to CAW when referring or answering to me...CAW stuck.

SparkPeople requires a username to be at least 6 characters long...so I added the - and _ to stretch it out.

Being a proud army wife and huge supporter of my husband's career is probably about 80% of my self-identity. When people ask me what I do for a career, I tell them "My career is supporting my husband in his. I am his sounding board and his biggest fan." I can throw a cocktail party or afternoon tea with approx 1.5 hours notice if I need to.


Each and every moment has infinite potential and infinite energy, so approach life one moment at a time.

I am a fledgling artist. You can view my paintings here:

My username is the type and year of the car I drive. It's a 1996 Geo Prizm. LOL Even though my car is 15 years old, I always think of it as my happy place. Sounds dumb, right? LOL. I know. But I have collected buttons from all of the sports my kids are in and have attached them to the inside roof of my car. Also I have a few things that are very important to me from loved ones that now fly with the Angels.
Plus prizms (prisms) are cool.

Love to all~

I'm a writer and it's based on one of my favorite character's name. I call myself 'Nina' all the time and I'm starting to get funny looks from my family! emoticon

Like many others, mine is a combination of my first and last names. Actually it is my first name, and then the first letter of my maiden name and then first letter of my married name.

Many of the usernames I was thinking of using had already been taken. (Some by me with accounts I have had in the past).

Good morning! My first day here. emoticon
I chose my user name because I always feel I have no time to do the things I need to do to lose weight: meal planning, exercise, sitting down to a decent meal. The other meaning for me is that I'm 54 and if I want to get healthy at some point in my life I'd better get at it -- because I have no time to lose!

Mine is my last name. I have used it for years after i got married and the 3 is for my husband, me and my daughter. And the 0 is just because sometimes the user name isn't long enough.
There are 4 in my family now but i just have never changed it.

My username is obviously about ZUMBA!!! I started going to classes last week and it has been great! I want to get to a point in my life where people ask, what do you do to stay in shape? I will reply eat healthy, stay active, and ZUMBA! And I want them to think, well she does look zumbalicious! Oh, and 11 is my fav number :) I can't wait to get to know all of you... I think this site will be a GREAT motivator for me!

Be the change you want to see in the world!

I didn't have to think too long or hard before deciding on my Spark name - I'd just attempted to put on a pair of jeans that were really loose a month ago, and when they wouldn't come close to zipping up, I said to myself 'great, back up again', because I'd managed to lose a little weight in the 6 months previous to that. I had promised myself I would never let myself get 'back up again'.It just seemed to come to me, when I learned I needed to call myself something, and I knew there would probably be a million members' names beginning with Lea.

I have decided today it also will have another meaning over the next however many months it takes me to reach my goal weight - I am climbing out of that pit of self loathing and binge eating, back up again to a place where I will gradually learn to love myself once more. So far, so good - with all my team members going through basically the same feelings as I do, I know that if you can all achieve your goals, then so can I!

My username seemed a no-brainer as it is the main reason I came to SP, to go from fat and become physically fit! I am currently 53, though likely will be another year older by the time I get to goal weight. What I am learning is that I may have other work to do in addition to achieving physical fitness--looking forward to the transformation.

My username Aricandy is the combination of my name and my last name with a sweet touch. I started using it long time ago, but I do not remenber exactly when. It means to me that I am a sweet person that by the way loves candy (which I am trying to work to not love candy so much)

I was given a nickname in school based off my last name. One of my good friends started calling me La creature, then eventually creech. The reason I picked creechylu is because it's a combination of that nickname and the first two letters of my last name. My last name is very rare and if I use it, it's very easy to find me. Creechylu is a little more cyber stalker proof. LOL!

Well, my user name is pretty much my first name Joniece (Precious gift from GOD!), and my middle name Michelle, chopped down! 86 is my birth year! I chose it because its easiest to remember, and everybody calls me Joni anyways, except for my mom of course..LOL! Doesn't mean much, but its a part of me :)


Its not just a diet....its a LIFESTYLE CHANGE! Grow accustomed to it :)

Ok, my user name is... the root where my real name comes from. So, my real name is Desslava, which actually derives from the proto Bulgarian "Desiti", and it means "searching for, looking for" ;) When I found out the "history" behind my name I rally thought it's cool, so I started using it as a nickname ;)

Tree is a nickname given to me when I was about 5 years old by my older sister (short for Teresa). I hated it at the time and for years after because I thought she was making fun how tall I was. It wasn't until I was in college that I let people call me Tree. Now I love it! The number is just my birth year because I am boring like that! emoticon

My name actually means "water wolf" in old english. I ran across it one day on the web when I was trying to find ideas for a story and I liked it so it just kinda stuck. I like using it, because it is always available whatever website I am on, but it is also unique to me.

I was born early....my mom was 7 months along. She didn't have a name picked out for me yet. Her room mate at the army hospital suggested my name...I don't know what it means. I have only met one other person with the same name. also it is my middle name. I have enjoyed using it on Spark People because it is the first time I have really used it EVER.
