Good Luck everyone on your journey. Since joining SparkPeople in 2008 I have lost 75 lbs. 40 the first year. Gained 20 back. 25 the second year. Gained 25 back. And now have lost 10 this year. I'm thinking gee if I wouldn't have gained all that weight back I would no longer be obese. lol I would just be overweight. So this year I'm going to try to stay on track and get out of the obese range. I'm taking babysteps. Hopefully I can stay on track this year.

Initial Goals:
1. Get back into my previous weight loss jeans.

2. Meet my fiber requirements 5 days a week.

Now that I am finally exercising for the first time in 23 years I have decided to set these weekly exercise goals.

1. Walk or go to the gym 3 - 4 days a week.
2. Strength training 2 - 3 times a week

Hi everyone! I live in Bettendorf. I am married and we have 4 kids between the two of us. I work full-time and am also going to school full-time. I have been a member of Spark people for a while but haven't been very active because I was doing another program. I had lost 45 lbs. I had to stop going because of financial strain and have now gained all my weight back. I am looking for support and I stumbled onto the Quad Cities team. I am going to get back on track. This site is great so far. Hope to talk to all of you soon. Beckie

Hi! I am Kim and I live between Moline and Galesburg also. I joined a "Biggest Loser" competition at work and did very poorly in December. Starting the second week of January I decided I needed to pull my weight (HA!) on my team and looked for a free calorie counter website and found SparkPeople. I adore the website and the support. I have lost around 10 lbs. (Posted the wrong weight at first and don't know how to change it!) I am also approaching empty nest in August or at least partly so and am worried about it. My hubby and I have three kids, one is graduated from college and works for the family business now. The next is a Jr. at college and the youngest is a senior in high school. I love the support and would like to be part of a team that actually gets to know each other and offer support. Congrats to all of you who have lost so much! Doesn't it feel good?!? emoticon

Hi, my name is Margie, and I live in Moline. I have been on Spark People for a little over a year, and absolutely love it. I have lost 32.5 pounds in the past year, and look forward to losing 17.5 more this next year.

I have 5 children that are almost grown. One is in grad school, two have finished college, one is getting ready for college, and one is in high school.

I have found that I absolutely LOVE exercising!! I am doing the 28 day challenge for February. I have almost finished reading The Spark, and need to work on some goals and my vision collage tomorrow.

I hope this team will become more active! It would be nice to get together and meet everyone!!

Margie

Hello Everyone,
My name is Vanessa, I live in Moline. I'm the mother of 4 children, the oldest is already as tall as I am and very proud of it. lol. I go the YMCA in Moline not on a regular basis as of late, but could if someone is wanting a work out partner. I am also willing to go for walks, and bike rides when it gets a lil (lot) warmer out. Welcome to the group, I also hope that it becomes more active. Two years ago I lost over 40 pounds with the help of sparkk people and I have managed to keep it off. Barb keep up the good work and I hope your next labs come out great!!

Don't look back, you're not going that way.

Hi
I'm Barb. I live in the Quad Cities. I found Spark People in July. My husband's brother & wife came to our timeshare & they looked great. They had been on it awhile. By the end of their visit we were hooked. I didn't get on the scale because I knew it would be awful. We started eating better & printing out recipes from SP. They were sooo good. The weight started coming off. On Sept. 1 I got on the scale . Since then I've lost 34lbs. It's really over 40 since my clothes were getting looser . Then in Sept. I found out I had diabetes. That was devastating news. I was lucky they didn't put me on medicine. They said to keep doing what I was doing. I go to Curves 5 times a week too. My A1C score was 6.4 in Sept. I have my 3 month chekup next week. They did more blood work & my A1C score is now 5.9. Having the diabetes will ensure I keep losing & I have to keep it off this time. Sometimes it takes a crisis to make you behave. I'd like to hear from more people. We can encourage each other.

Hello all! I thought I would introduce myself in anticipation of this becoming a more active group emoticon
I'm Jen, and I live between the QC and Galesburg. I grew up in this area and have a love/hate relationship with it (especially in the winter LOL).

I'm a 36 year old mom to two great kids - my son is 12, and my daughter is 10. I've been married to the greatest husband for almost 15 years.

I've been working on getting fit for quite a while now. I lost 75 lbs on WW when I was a SAHM about 5-6 years ago. I kept most of it off but put on 15 lbs last summer when I quit smoking. Now I'm determined to lose 40 lbs this year. I'd like to lose it before motorcycle season gets here. My motivation is too look good on the back of the bike this summer emoticon
I do Zumba at the Y every Monday (if only they offered more classes!). I do the elliptical and treadmills there the rest of the week.

I am loving SP!! I'm doing well this year and am so excited to start noticing the results emoticon
