Whether your forte is rockabilly / psychobilly, Lolita, 50's Vintage fashion or the whole lifestyle, you'll fit right in.. SparkPeople ROCKABILLY BOMBSHELLS Team Messageboard San Diego Accountability Buddies Hello! I may not be new to Sparkpeople but since I keep forgetting it exists and keep forgetting to stay on track here I am again. Although I would like to take my goal setting offline as much as possible. Spending everyday doing a bunch of health accounting is not something I plan on doing. But I will be doing some basics like tracking my weight, measurements and feelings each week overall and as I get motivated to do more I will. I find I get stuck down internet rabbit holes and get distrac... Tue, 24 May 2016 18:10:04 EST Hello all! I'm not new to sparkpeople, but I'm starting over with a clean slate and am also new to this group. My goal is to lose 100 pounds in a year (I know I'm crazy!). I love to shop vintage but I have a hard time being plus size, so that's one of my biggest motivators (other than to be healthy of course). Wed, 29 Oct 2014 11:28:11 EST Hi, all! Hello! I'm new to Sparkpeople, but not new to exercising and a healthy lifestyle. I love vintage fashion, hair, makeup, music, and just about everything else. After being out of commission the past year, I'm working my way back to being healthy, and trying to drop a size or two along the way. :) Tue, 28 Oct 2014 23:37:50 EST Hello Hi all, my name is Carina and i am from switzerland. I joined SparkPeople to loose some extra pounds. After loosing a lot of weight 3 years ago, i started to gain that again. For my wedding this may i got myself a vintage wedding dress. Now its already very tight :( Looking forward to meet new people to motivate each other. Cheers <em>524</em> Thu, 31 Jul 2014 06:38:19 EST starting again Hey everyone! I am starting back on spark people. I was a member years ago but stopped using the site for some reason I don't remember but I'm back now. Looking to get back on track with my weight. I was in this spark group before and loved it! So glad to be back &#10084; Wed, 25 Jun 2014 13:07:52 EST Favorite type of workout? What routine do you use to get stronger + in shape? <BR> <BR> I'm currently running and using the Insanity program every few days, but am looking forward to something more community-based once I live in one place and can join a gym or hire a trainer. Going it alone is cheap, but it's so easy to just give up. <BR> <BR> And whether or not they're effective, these old-school exercises seemed perfect to share with the Team <em>212</em> <BR> <BR><BR>...

We can do it together! : ) Wed, 6 Feb 2013 18:15:13 EST VLV 16 Alright ladies, 83 days! Who's going to Viva this year? I've already got my ticket, but haven't booked a hotel yet...think I'm probably going to end up staying at the Gold Coast, unfortunately the Orleans is already full.

The team has been really quiet lately and I thought a January challenge of some sort might help give some momentum to everyone's New Year's Resolutions. What do you all think? Thu, 27 Dec 2012 07:08:41 EST summer ready! Hey I'm Faye, I am all about the old school rock-a-billy style. Im currently deployed, trying to get ready for summer and school. I love for my style and hope to buy some awesome clothes that i will look awesome in when I get back. Good luck to everyone, lets get sexy for summer!! Tue, 18 Dec 2012 06:28:52 EST Hey!! Back on spark, trying to get fit and healthy while im deployed. I will be back in the states by summer so I want to look good!! :) Fri, 14 Dec 2012 01:25:55 EST Let's get this active again! Hi everybody! It seems that this team has been inactive for several months, which is a shame because it seems like a lot of fun. I'll make some posts to get things going. Let's start by everyone introducing themselves. I'll start. <BR> <BR> My name is Nikki, and I'm a 24 year old grad student living in Las Vegas, Nevada. I graduate this spring and will be licensed, practicing school psychologist next year. I'm a big fan of rockabilly style, and am trying to incorporate it into my everyday we... Mon, 10 Dec 2012 13:58:42 EST Hey all! I'm a Sparker that just re-joined.... I took a 3-year break with disastrous results. Anyway, I'm looking for friends to help keep me motivated and to maybe discuss some rockabilly culture with :) Mon, 19 Nov 2012 11:44:28 EST How do you guys feel about change? And when I say change, I mean, switching up your workout routine. Do you do it to keep things new and fresh without getting bored? Or do some of you change because you feel like it's easier to do something else. <BR> Do you think it's a good idea to change your workout schedule before you're finished with a program? Sun, 21 Oct 2012 12:58:04 EST Seeking accountability buddy... Hi there, <BR> My name is Lucy, and I have been sparking seriously now for 7 weeks, I used to look hot but now Im chunky!

Mon, 6 Aug 2012 06:47:12 EST Meow Meow!! Angie Pontani Jr? Maybe? :) To say that I want to get in shape to be healthy is a lie. <BR> Deep down inside, I secretly want to get a rockin' body to burlesque the likes of the Pontani Sisters! Okay okay, so I know true beauty is rocking what you have. Every rockabilly mama knows it's about accentuating your curves, playing up make up and hair, and top it off with a killer attitude to keep those boys wrapped around your pinkie... but really... I'm tired of being the chubby girl. Seriously. I don't want my stage name to... Sat, 9 Jun 2012 15:55:44 EST Hiya Guys and Dolls! I have always loved the fashion and style or rockabilly. I never thought I could wear it because of my size. One of my many goals would be able to wear the rockabilly style and look good in it. I'd love any support I can get.

Im not new to spark but I am trying a different approach this time. Im looking to get healthy and get ready for my cruise at the end of november. I am a 40's pinup girl at heart and I love that style to death. Just wanted to say hi and wish everyone luck :) Thu, 13 Oct 2011 14:21:14 EST Hiya Dolls! Hi everyone! My name is Niki, I'm 19, and I'm new here. I absolutely love the post-vintage rockabilly pin-up look but unfortunately I lack the body that's required to really pull the look off. I'm aiming to lose 95 pounds by October of next year. Being able to wear the clothes that best fit who I am is probably one of the biggest reasons why I want to lose weight. I'm always looking to make new friends so if you want to know anything else about me don't hesitate to ask! Tue, 11 Oct 2011 14:24:59 EST Hey, gals! Hi there Bombshells, <BR> <BR> I'm Kay, I'm new to this team and am so excited to have found you girls! I have only been actively been using spark for about a week so I'm still getting used to the process. Feel free to keep in touch with me if your looking for a weight loss buddy! I'd be happy to share the experience of becoming a total bombshell =D <BR> <BR> Good luck everyone!! Tue, 4 Oct 2011 23:10:31 EST Hello, Bombshells! Hey there everyone! I'm Aly and I just wanted to stop by and introduce myself! Sat, 10 Sep 2011 01:03:06 EST New Team Member Bright Blessings y'all <BR> <BR> Was just searching the spark team and came across this one. <BR> <BR> My idea of "cat clothes" (from the Carl Perkins song) is Vintage Chic!! <BR> <BR> I look forward to being a member of this team. Mon, 22 Aug 2011 11:56:07 EST Dressed to Thrill Ok, so I lost some weight. Now it is easier to wear fun clothes. <BR> <BR> I will share my fashion finds and creative ways to get that retro look. <BR> <BR> Wearing smaller sizes keeps me in check food and motivated to keep active. Sun, 7 Aug 2011 19:06:39 EST Hello and HeadCat Hello Ladies! <BR> I stumbled upon this SparkTeam and it looks like the place for me! <BR> <BR> Has anyone else heard the new HeadCat album?

Maybe 2? I'm not really sure...but I am trying to get myself reacquainted with spark people, because I feel that the more I talk about what I'm trying to accomplish, the more likely I am to keep with it.

Mon, 4 Jul 2011 09:00:06 EST Torrid Has a New Pin Up Line I'm not sure if this merits an exclamation mark or not, or if I should just put it in the Shopping thread, but Torrid has a new "Retro Chic" line with some hecka cute dresses. There are at least two I'm going to get myself before summer is out... I just wish they didn't always attach fake belts to their clothes. <BR> <BR><BR>sp <BR> <BR> xx May <BR> Tue, 14 Jun 2011 23:40:04 EST Bombshells June Challenge!!

Although 143 pounds doesn't sound like much, I am only 4'8", and the extra weight has actually been hurting my knees and my triglycerides are through the roof!

I have a few pencil skirts too. What do you guys think? Mon, 11 Apr 2011 21:08:15 EST Hello everyone :D My name is Darcee, and this team is perfect for me. I don't feel as if I belong in this decade at all. The 50s was where it was at. Everything was so innocent back then. One of the biggest reasons why I want to lose weight is because I want to be able to fit into those beautiful pin up clothes. I have my goal dress picked out. I wanted something tight, low cut and damn sexy. I've never worn a tight dress in my life lol. You can see a pic of my goal dress in my photo gallery, I found it at pin...

Tue, 22 Mar 2011 15:21:12 EST Hi Y'all Will see how my first weigh-in this week goes. My lil' darlin' had a skate party and I had to make spinach dip & cake. Yeah, I did indulge a little. Forgave myself and ate Salad for lunch, and dinner the next day. I'm married with one child, a dog ,kitty, & a bunny. I'm farm girl raised living in suburbia. I like to be a tomboy, but like to dress like a pin up. I want to be strong inside and out. Plus sexxxy. I'm trying to keep a positive attitude, and picture myself at goal.

What the hell? <BR> <BR> I really feel like it's a mistake for me to cut calories much more than I am- I've been around 1200 all week and burning 250-300 at the gym. I feel like if I restrict myself much more I'll damage my already slow metabolism. <BR> <BR> Any advice ... Fri, 9 Jul 2010 09:01:54 EST Bombshells July Challenge!!!

Sorry about that girls! <BR> <BR> We should move to lower body again for June and find a core challenge that will really impact our "bikini" days ahead of us. <BR> <BR> I've been thinking about step ups and single leg b... Fri, 29 May 2009 04:35:40 EST One one THOSE days... Oh man I feel so terrible. I was doing amazing all week, working out, eating completely clean and then today I blew it all away. Today was a friends birthday party and pizza was involved... delicious, sinful pizza... yummm. Also involved was soda (which I usually never drink) iced animal cookies and cake of course. I feel so terrible... but I guess the only thing there is to do is learn and move on. <BR> <BR> Any advice to help me get back on the wagon tomorrow? Mon, 25 May 2009 01:10:59 EST Celebrity Party So I got invited to go to a "Celebrity" Party this weekend where all the guests are supposed to pick a celebrity and dress like them. But I'm broke and have no idea what to be!! Also I'm not very good with celebrity knowledge and can't think of anyone!! <BR> <BR> I was thinking maybe I could do someone from times past because that would be easier for me but I thought since I dress like that most of the time it might be more fun to dress like someone more recent. I was thinking maybe somethi... Thu, 21 May 2009 12:24:10 EST Runnin' around like a crazy woman! Hello all you Bombshells! Just wanted to pop on and say hi! I seem to have such little time lately that I haven't made it in as much as I would like! <BR> <BR> The studio is coming along great! Sunday night I painted my favorite wall so's HOT PINK!

I joined SP around two weeks ago and am delighted to have found this team! <BR> <BR> I am a 27 year old vintage-clothing & cooking obsessed girl who lives in Melbourne, Australia. My favorite period for frocks is late 50s - early 60s and I have a bit of a collection going. Since I started studying again around two years ago though, I've put on around 8kg (that's over 17 pounds) and only a couple of my darling dresses fit me now. I'm determined to finish my doctorate the way I started though... Mon, 18 May 2009 23:02:33 EST See ya in 10 days! I probably shouldn't have started a thread just to post this message ... but I did! <BR> <BR> I'm sorry I've been MIA from the team these past few weeks. Getting the car ready has been a grueling, exhausting and in the end very rewarding. We've been in the garage at least 13 hours a day for the past six days ... so finding any time to do fun things like talk to my favorite team has been almost impossible! Sorry about that! I've missed you all very much and have been thinking about you al... Thu, 14 May 2009 03:02:11 EST How Do I become a Bombshell? I want to be a bombshell, but where do I start? How do I get that unique flare and style that bombshells have? I am so clueless when it comes to beauty regimens and clothing, but I want to be the epitome of femininity. Mon, 11 May 2009 22:05:01 EST Hallo! Hello Bombshells, <BR> My name is Victoria, I'm 21, a college student. I absolutely love vintage bombshells and beauties, and I love old school movies and radio shows. I am highly motivated by the women of old times, and although I could never get the same figure as them, I want to be able to wear some vintage cute fashions that I find thrift shoppin. <BR> <BR> I look forward to getting to know you all and being encouraged!

I looove pin up girls and the rockabilly genre and when I saw this group I had to step in! <BR> <BR> I like having curves, but these days... I just have a little too much of it. So, I'm working on dismissing that the best way possible. <BR> <BR> My HW was 224 pounds when I was a freshman. My lowest is 181 pounds and I am 5'9" <BR> <BR> Sadly, I creeped back up to 211 pounds and now I am working on getting those numbers... Fri, 27 Mar 2009 18:32:33 EST VOTING FOR APRIL CORE CHALLENGE Since some of us have been doing 100 extra crunches since mid January, I thought we should do more core oriented exercises instead of just crunches. <BR> <BR> I was thinking doing the following: <BR> <BR> Back extenstion on ball 2x10-12 Even Days: <BR> <BR> <link><BR>es.asp?exercise=17 </link> <BR> <BR> Plank holds (left, right, forward) 2-3 mins each side Odd Days: <BR> <BR> <link><BR>es.asp?exercise=146 </lin...

She's gone from SparkPeople. Profile deleted. <BR> <BR> This worries me terribly!!! Does ANYONE, and I do mean ANYONE who actually knows her. I'm pretty sure she lived in Kentucky. Probably somewhere near Keeneland (I think that's how you spell it). If so, we'd like to contact her, thr...

Wed, 25 Mar 2009 15:22:45 EST JUKE BOX I almost always wake up singing something. And some mornings I'm embarrassed at the song that has crept into my thoughts while I sleep! Music is such a powerful influence in my life. I'm totally addicted! <BR> <BR> On the Positive Mental Attitude team, Shabs started a thread called Waxing Lyrical ... and I thought it would be fun to do it here, where we all like the same music. <BR> <BR> I usually write the whole song - cuz I'm sick and I know all the words to every song I've ever heard!...

I am setting money aside for new clothes and I can't wait to get them. I've always been one for the rockabilly/punk style, but I just don't feel good or fit into my clothes anymore, so I shop at Old Navy (its cheap) and look like a stinkin middle aged soccer mom. I'm not supposed to feel like that at 24. I am a mom, but I want to be the cool one. Hell, I'm half way to Rosie the Riviter, I'm an aircraft mechanic, I just need to g...
