It reminds me too much of my bizarro bio-parents and all of their drama. I'm in the middle of processing a lot of that pain into a beautiful understanding of my "personal mythology." It came from a sarcastic comment about me being a "F'ing Ray a Sunshine" and somehow that morphed into being called Reya ALL the time.

I'm married and have two kids. My husband knows. And while that is a bit relieving, it's been extremely difficult dealing with it as well! (super long story!)

I'm a 27 year old bisexual person, recently came out to my friends and family. The stress from all that caused some depression and emotional eating/drinking that I am trying to recover from. I have a wonderful girlfriend who uses wrought watchers but I thought I'd try this. I'm really glad to have found this group since at first all the teams seemed to be extremely religious, heteronormative types. Anyway, glad to be on board!

I'm in a committed monogamous relationship with a woman (we're getting married soon), but I've always been bisexual--it's part of who I am.

I joined SparkPeople earlier this month in hopes of losing some weight (okay a lot of weight). So far so good. :) Thu, 28 Apr 2011 16:48:50 EST Greetings from Atl So i'm jumping back on it....Ive been on a hiatus kinda so i'm back on sparks daily trying to build up a good accountability system so to do that I should start being active in different groups.

Did anyone catch the "Sexy" episode of Glee on March 8th? <BR> <BR> What do you think of the Santana/Brittney relationship? It seemed like the show was handling it in the typical way (that its just something that girls do to get attention) but this episode turned it in a whole new direction. [no pun intended] Not that I slept around as much, but I can definitely identify with Santana's anger at not being able to express her interest in Brittney. I really wanted to apply labels to them and th... Sat, 19 Mar 2011 04:46:49 EST wow. just wow. (I hope this is ok to put in here) <BR> <BR> I got weighed in on wednesday at the gym and I am SO thrilled to report that I am down 13lbs from my starting weight. Not bad at all for one month! I think I am going to ride this high for a while . . . . <BR> <BR> I am also 2 lbs away from my first mini goal, which is awesome. The ironic part is that I still haven't decided what that will be! <BR> <BR> So how about some suggestions for a great little reward for myself?

We all are to wear purple in memory of all the LGBTQ teens that were so bullied that they felt that suicide was the only way out.

I am sure that there are people who voted against him because of it and I think that is ridiculous as it is a SINGING competition and not a SEXUALITY competion. What do you guys think??

I'm becky. <BR> <BR> I'm...struggling with my weight, bisexual, submissive, living in missouri and a single mother of 2. <BR> <BR> Just curious...anyone from MO or KS on the team? <BR> <BR> bec Thu, 9 Apr 2009 17:25:36 EST a new challenge a friend of mine posted a list of 101 goals to achieve in 1001 days a while back and i took the initative to start a list of my own. while i've yet to finish it, i'm pretty far along - up to #79, i think. my challenge to the rest of you is to do the same! post your list here, in your blog, wherever you like and keep everyone updated as to your progress. it's good motivation and you have something to show for your efforts. good luck, boys and girls! <BR> Thu, 9 Apr 2009 10:33:15 EST Where are you? I often wish SparkPeople had a feature where you could do a geographic search within your own team but since we don't have that feature I figured we could just do a post. <BR> <BR> I'm in Rocklin, CA (Near Sacramento) Tue, 7 Apr 2009 12:09:17 EST LOGO TV Shows I recently switched cable tv service and for the first time I now have LOGO. I'm looking to add tv shows to my DVR recordings so that I can watch them while on the treadmill. What are your favorite programs? Mon, 6 Apr 2009 09:23:26 EST What are your goals for April? Mine is to clear my two teaching credentials or at least get as much as I can towards that goal. The dead line is June 10th Mon, 30 Mar 2009 09:06:07 EST How are your fave stars?

Thu, 26 Mar 2009 01:48:10 EST On Coming Out.... Thanks to some encouragement from a dear friend of mine, I am going to come out to my parents. My husband already knows, and he's pansexual too, so that's not a difficulty. But, my parents are very religious and conservative. I guess I am tired of hiding who I really am, ignoring the foolish anti-gay comments they make, pretending I'm someone I'm not. <BR> <BR> So, I'm coming out. I live in a different state than them, so it's going to be over email. (I have parent issues and over the phone... Tue, 24 Mar 2009 12:11:53 EST I thought it was time I joined this team! I have belonged to spark a little over a month now, but I have been hesitant to join this team because I didn't want my extremely nosy family to see the icon. I recently got to a point where I no longer care if they see the icon, they would not be satisfied if I were straight, they are just unsatisfiable, and I have decided to go on with my life and leave them to their issues! <BR> <BR> With that said, to borrow a line from Better Than Chocolate, I am omnisexual! It has never occurred to me ... Tue, 24 Mar 2009 02:50:17 EST What's your favorite workout songs/so nglist?? Gotta have Enya when I do my flow yoga. <BR> <BR> Anything techno or electronica for the cardio... <BR> Tiesto or Paul Oakenfold are just of couple of my favorites ... <BR> <BR> & Anything with a strong bass beat (other than rap) for my strength training (makes it easier for me to keep count of my reps! LOL!) Wed, 18 Mar 2009 17:57:27 EST Advice Needed I always feel most comfortable on this team (don't tell the other teams), so I thought I'd post my dilemma here. First off, I know this is a problem I've made for myself by being non-confrontational, but I really need to make a decision. <BR> <BR> Back in Dec, I was getting my teeth cleaned by the dental Hygienist (Dee) I have seen for a few years. As she is cleaning my teeth, she makes during normal chit chat, what to me, is an incredibly hateful and prejudice statement. (This problem co... Wed, 18 Mar 2009 16:33:37 EST New Feature From Sparkpeople We are launching a pretty big Community feature next week, a "Friend Feed" that shows the activity of all your friends in one place. Before the launch though we are going to make the "privacy settings" page for this feature available, so people can opt out of this feature if they would like. <BR> <BR> I got this from the community team and thought I would share it with the team. <BR> <BR> Dan Mon, 9 Mar 2009 19:14:34 EST Do you ever wonder why??? I'll start the first question because although it doesn't bother me I do kinda wonder. Why aren't there more men in this group? Mon, 9 Mar 2009 09:05:34 EST Never been with the same sex Okay I have feelings for a woman and thinking about her turns me on but I haven't met her in person yet. <BR> <BR> Difficult situation since I have been with my hubby for 24 years. I am not in love with him but I do love him if that makes sense. It feels like he is a good friend but I don't have that feeling that I wanted to have with someone...the madly in love feeling. <BR> <BR> If she and I are compatible then my issue would be to tell my husband and child (17 years old going to be 18 t... Fri, 6 Mar 2009 11:08:38 EST Whatsup, it's Kat~ Hi :) I'm Kat, 19, and Bi. I was excited to find this group, although I must say I disagree with the community message. <BR> <BR> "A place for those of us on the spectrum between gay and straight and for friends and loved ones who understand that love is about people and not genitalia." <BR> <BR> While I do love people, I gotta say I love genitalia even more. ;) Thu, 5 Mar 2009 14:57:20 EST I thought this would be fun! 1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? <BR> My Dad, I'm a Jr. <BR> <BR> 2. WHAT IS YOUR MOTTO IN LIFE? <BR> You either giving more then you take or taking more then you give. Hopefully it the former rather then the latter. <BR> <BR> 3.

Fri, 27 Feb 2009 19:17:06 EST March Challenage I thought I would put this up a little early so that we had time to think before we start. Share with the group your fitness or whatever goals for the month of March. When you make them public it often help motivate you. Fri, 27 Feb 2009 08:30:29 EST Hello all, new to the team Hello fellow bi spark team memebers, Im Kyonna, checking out of Brooklyn NY, looking for people with similar goals as mine, pertaining to losing weight. Any Brooklyn Knights here hit me up we can walk Prospect Park together on a routine basis. Thu, 26 Feb 2009 13:29:43 EST Hi I'm new :) Hi I'm New to your team! and fairly New to the Spark Family! My name is Charmane and I am excited to have found this sight! <BR> <em>30</em> Mon, 23 Feb 2009 21:20:31 EST new from Southern California Just wanted to say a quick hi to everyone. What a great site this is! I'm still working my way around it, but it's been fun learning how to use it. What a great idea to combine a weight loss/fit site with such a wide variety of social groups. Very cool that there's a bi group! Bi friends are the best! :) I love that we can be open without being judged and I'm looking forward to meeting you all. Sun, 22 Feb 2009 14:57:51 EST Why are you proud of yourself today! I saw this on another team and thought I would steal it! <BR> Everybody needs a good job even if you have to give it to yourself. <BR> <BR> I'm proud of myself for getting through my depression and getting back on the weight loss wagon! Wed, 11 Feb 2009 09:25:55 EST Hi! I am taking a break from the scene right now, I have horrible taste in mates! I am out of the closet with everyone but my family who are fundie/baptist. I have known I was bi since I was 13. I am glad to have found this team. <BR> <BR> love, life and light, <BR> Zoe Tue, 10 Feb 2009 15:34:04 EST Hello All! I'm pretty new here on sparkpeople (about one week) and looking for teams where I'll feel at home. <BR> <BR> I'm maybe weird in the whole weight loss area because I don't weigh myself or measure or anything. I figure I can tell that weight is coming off because my clothes will fit better (or maybe even get too big) and I'll look better and feel better too. <BR> <BR> So far I've been really just using the exercise and nutrition trackers. The exercise one is good for minutes, but I'm not s... Wed, 4 Feb 2009 18:54:11 EST Prop 8 (California) Hey everybody I thought I would post this to share with the group. <BR> <BR> By Aurelio Rojas <BR> <BR> Published: Tuesday, Feb. 03, 2009 <BR> <BR> The California Supreme Court today announced it will hear oral arguments in the challenge to Proposition 8 on March 5, setting the stage for one of the most anticipated hearings in the court's recent history. <BR> <BR> At stake will be the fate of same-sex marriage inn California, which was banned by voters when the approved P... Tue, 3 Feb 2009 21:36:44 EST February Chellenge Hey team I wanted to create a weight loss challenge for February. I was thinking a 5 lb weight loss or 500 fitness minutes for the month. Sun, 1 Feb 2009 10:52:48 EST New person... Hi! I'm Jordan. I'm new to Sparkpeople, so I'm trying to get used to everything. Not to be a newbie, but there are so many options to choose from :| <BR> <BR> Anyway, I'm a 20 year old girl. I live in Chicago. I'm currently a student. My major is Spanish and my minor is Russian. Yeah, I'm a language nerd... <BR> <BR> I've been overweight my entire life. I started trying to lose weight about two years ago. I'm -25 pounds from what I was in high school, but I still have so much to go. <BR> <... Wed, 28 Jan 2009 23:52:52 EST Unexpected Weight Loss "Issues" Now that I have lost almost sixty pounds, my glasses and shoes no longer fit. My glasses are constantly on the tip of my nose and my dress flat sound like flip flops when I walk down the hall. Also, since I am 4'11" and now wearing a semi loose 12, I dont fit into any category in the retails shops. Plus size ends at 14 in most places, but Misses and Petites dont provide the tush and belly room that I still need. Any ideas ofther than altering every piece of clothing I purchase? Mon, 26 Jan 2009 12:46:51 EST Comming out issues Does anybody else have issues associated with coming out? <BR> My wife is having an issue with me coming out because of her family which I really didn't want to come out to them anyway but now days with the information age and the fact that I live in a very conservative area in California (trying to get a job as a school teacher). I am having some concerns. Fri, 23 Jan 2009 09:27:03 EST Trying to stay strong today! I'm feeling pretty up today, that's why I'm writing. It's been a hard few months though... <BR> <BR> Like everyone, money has been tight, especially around the holidays. <BR> <BR> My husband and I are trying for a baby, and when I was two weeks late we were very excited, but it turns out I'm not pregnant. But at least there's still the fun of trying! :) <BR> <BR> I'm grieving for my doctor, who was a wonderful, caring woman, but was in enough emotional and physical pain that she took he... Wed, 21 Jan 2009 14:37:52 EST A question for the team Do you like having a goal number for the group? Does it motivate you? <BR> <BR> To me Team Goals are only effective if the team members are involved in creating them. <BR> <BR> If a majority of you don't like it or don't really care about it I won't worry about putting in an overall goal for next months goals. Tue, 20 Jan 2009 17:58:00 EST New Team Leader Hi Everyone, <BR> <BR> I just wanted to let everybody know I am the new team leader and I will be attempting to come up with some new goals and challenges for the team. If you have any suggestions or comments please feel free to let me know. <BR> <BR> Thanks <BR> Dan Mon, 19 Jan 2009 22:43:05 EST We need a new Challenge! Hey guys! <BR> <BR> It seems like there are not many of us left so I thought I would get a challenge going to help us get some motivation. Any ideas? I was thinking of trying to exercise for at least 120 mins a week. <BR> <BR> Let me know what you think. Any ideas of other challenges we could do. <BR> Wed, 7 Jan 2009 19:30:24 EST New here Hello, my name is Kim. I am married and a mother to 4 girls. I am trying to lose about 50lbs.

I am married now but have primarily been involved with women. Tis a strange thing, but it works for me. the look but don't touch philosophy goes in my world. Looking forward to meeting people here, just because I am in a heterosexual zone doesn't mean I don't miss the community, so it will be nice to have people of like minds to speak to again. <em>250</em>...

A small voice in the back of my head told me to get a wheelchair when we got to the zoo today. But I wanted to get my excersie in, so I walked. I took my cane and and was ready to burn off the calories!! (we walk around the zoo in a circle from right to left.) Yea by the time I got to the back right corner of the zoo I was in pain. By the time we got to the far left I was in LOTS of pain. So we made it towards the exit and I was walking super su... Fri, 1 Aug 2008 01:26:00 EST Just saying hi!!!

Hi everyone just another bisexual chick here trying to be a big looser (weight that is) too. Wanted to wave hi to everyone from Portland Oregon. Hi! <BR> <BR> I'm doing great with my new way of life (eating habits). I was addicted to fast food for over 10 years and I'm learning how to cook now and loving it! Eating healthy is making me feel so great, and now that I found a bisexual place to be me....even better! <BR> <BR> Sun, 20 Jul 2008 14:56:36 EST Bisexual and loving it here..:-) Hello all Hello everyone. my name is stephaney and i am 24 from east texas. I have been a member of sp for almost 2 years but have fallen off the bandwagon till now. I just delivered my beautiful baby girl about 3 wks ago and am on a mission to get myself healthy again.

I can't wait to get to know all of you better..:-) <BR> <BR> stephaney Mon, 14 Jul 2008 15:20:45 EST A big Hello! Hey guys, <BR> <BR> I feel kinda weird being here. I am Bisexual, but I guess not actively. I am in a wonderful relationship with a man I love very much and plan to marry. <BR> <BR> It was actually not until a year ago that I realized I was bi, for me it was kinda like "what do you mean not all girls check out other girls boobs" I never wanted to admit that I liked girls because I grew up in a town where you couldn't spit without hitting some girl shouting from the rooftops that she liked ...

Mon, 30 Jun 2008 00:32:11 EST Team Leader? Anyone want to step up and be team leader? We currently don't have one. I don't want to do it but I thought I would throw the idea out there if anyone feels motivated enough to take on the task. I don't know why our original team leader took off without appointing someone else. <em>198</em> Wed, 18 Jun 2008 02:11:52 EST The Necklace used for the group icon... Does anybody know where to get one like that? I love that necklace, it's awesome! Mon, 26 May 2008 18:32:23 EST Another bisexual loser! I'm not really new to SP. I used to have a serious problem with anorexia. It got to the point where hospitalization was becoming a serious consideration. I decided that the tracking of everything I ate and every calorie burned was probably a bit unhealthy so I quit SP. Now I have a binge eating problem. I recently left America to spend a semester abroad. Since arriving in the UK, I have gone from 110 to 140 pounds. It is really hard for me because I know when I go home, everyone who hasn't se... Thu, 22 May 2008 19:28:51 EST Is the group still active? Hey! I'm a newbie to this group and I see there is very little activity on the message boards!

Ok, I need as many of you to come out of the woodwork as possible on this one. I've asked my family and friends for advice and still don't know what to do... I know that I don't personally know any of you, but I was hoping that since we all have bisexuality or open relationships in common that you all won't mind if I impose and ask for your input as well. <BR> <BR> I know that this is not necessarily a support group for all topics, but my problem is about potentially ending a 14 year relatio... Sun, 4 May 2008 02:53:02 EST Thankful for this group! Hey All, <BR> <BR> I suppose "bi" works for a term - I like that everyone here has a bit of an issue with it ;) I'm a senior graduating from a school in Washington, DC this May (scary!). I guess I joined this group looking for support from people who understand that you can be attracted physically and emotionally to a person regardless of what's between their legs. I get so frustrated and feel like I have to box myself in when talking to my straight friends or my lesbian/gay friends. Ei...

I have decided that in order to become a healthy weight, I have to do something about it, that is why I am here and I hope that Sparkpeople can help. I know that it is going to be a long hard road but when I get to the end and look back, everything will be worth it. <BR> <BR> Anyway, I hope to talk to you all soon.. <BR> <BR> Rachel Sat, 15 Mar 2008 01:46:24 EST 4 day challenge So, I have a personal challenge.

Mon, 8 Oct 2007 13:30:12 EST hello! Hi all. :) I'm currently transitioning, diet-wise, from vegetarian to raw vegan. I was always average bordering on the heavy side throughout grade school and high school. I lost 25 lbs in the summer of 2006 but have since gained it back. Umm relationship-wise, I haven't had many, but the ones I have had have been with men and have been deeply emotional as opposed to physical. I was hurt in one instance physically and so I've been really hesitant and have decided to explore my attraction ... Thu, 4 Oct 2007 23:13:02 EST Announcement: First challenge?
