Hello to all the new people. I'm quite new too - just a few days. I think maybe I should spend less time on spark people and more time exercising though ;) It's a bit addictive, reading all the posts and comments. I haven't even started on the recipes yet! Still, at least I'm not eating :) Good luck to you all. We can do it!

New here today! Love walking and hiking! Two stress fractures have thrown me back a bit but hoping one more week in a boot and I will be out again. Lol. I'm 59 and married to my friend....6 grandchildren and loving life. Lost 20lbs. Trying to lose 20 more. :))
Hi I'm returning after falling away for quite awhile but I have had it and I really want to take off some weight. We live on the second floor and while the stairs aren't too bad I huff more than I did when we moved here in March, because I've put weight I lost back on. shame on me? No, yea for me cause I'm back here working it out. So, one day at a time, one pound at a time. :)

Hi my name is Marge and this is day one of a more fit me. I was inspired by a Spark person's blog to try jogging again which long ago I enjoyed, and even am thinking about signing up for a 5K in a couple months - maybe...I am a bit afraid that my current body cannot handle it but I have been walking some and I did my first walk/Jog today and surprised myself that I did better then I thought I would! So when I was tracking my food I saw this challenge and believe it can help me stick to an exercise plan. They say it takes a month to build a new habit so...here we go, let's cheer each other on!
Just starting today. Weighed in at 180, hope to be down to 150 by end of November. I have tried several diets over the past years; some left me hungry all the time, some left me feeling fatigued. Trying SparkPeople now and praying that it works or maybe I should say praying I do well.

My weight has been up and down for years. This year I took up some bad habits again. Feel yucky right now. I am 170 today. My goal is to lose 16 lbs to feel and look better. Healthy eating and exercise is on my agenda. Good luck everybody.
Hi I joined 3 days ago. I stated tracking my food and fitness after talking with a friend that has lost 50 pounds following this program. I have always been overweight and at 54 I have had enough. I'm planning on reitring in a couple of years and I want to be able to do what every I want. I found this program easy to use and I can't wai to get more envolved. I welcome any advice. Thanks to all for your support.
Hello! My name is Beth and I am single and living in North Carolina. I joined today because I just turned 50 and I am obese. I am currently going to college after being out of school for 30 years. I would love to be a healthier person and I am hoping to change my eating habits and start an exercise program. I am looking forward to achieving my goals.
