Hey all, I am new to the team. I have been on spark a few times but never kept up with it. It saddens me to say that I wasted all that time maintaining my fat weight. But now I am motivated more than ever.
I have a supportive family, who I always put first but I won't be much use to them if I don't get healthy... So here I Go!!!!

Hello all. I am a 23 year old from Oregon. I started gaining weight around the age of 14 and have never been under 200 pounds as an adult. I'm trying to kick the weight so I can take advantage of more opportunities. Right now, I feel that I'm getting looked over regarding employment, and even got passed up for a bigger raise because of my weight. I'm certainly limiting my options because of it too. I currently work at a bank call center (can you imagine how much walking is required for that job) and while I'm making progress, the lack of movement doesn't help.

Hello.. I am 28 years old and am past ready for a change. I had always been a little heavy, but a healthy heavy. With life changes over the past 10 years (both good and bad), I have gained and lost until I am where I am now. I do not like being the weight I am and am trying to get motivated enough to stick with it.
I am glad to be here and with everyone the best.

Hi I am Jenn and 28 years old. Just recently I dodged a huge bullet with my heart went into the ER for chest pains and came out with no issues with my heart. Since getting that wakeup call in the ER I just knew I needed to change everything and start losing the excess weight.

Hola everybody!

I'm 24, and just finished my first year in law school. I've gone through significant changes the past 2-3 years (my weight included) and am looking forward to finally lightening my load.

Best of luck to all!

Hi there! I am a 27 year old newlywed looking to loose 100+ pounds for a healthier and happier life! I have been every single size out there from a 2 to a 20 and I am sick of it! Not only do I want to loose weight to be healthier but I am sick of being so tired after walking up a flight of stairs, tired of not being the out-going and up-beat person I use to be, I want to be more comfortable in my clothes, a bathing suit and even naked, I want to look forward to weekends filled with the beach, bike riding and outdoor activities instead of dreading it, and most importantly I want to begin a family very soon and to do that I need to be at a healthier weight not only for myself during a pregnancy but for my babies! I need all the support and motivation I can get because I have noticed without those two things I don't change a bit! I would love to make friends with others who have the same goals as I do as well as sharing ideas, tips, fun food recipes, and great workouts!

Hello one and all!

My name is Miranda, I'm 24. I'm the oldest of 7 kids and I want to loose weight and be healthier. Not only for me, but as a role model for my younger siblings so they don't tread the same path.

I've gotten to the point where I'm just done. I'm done with being fat. I'm done with not buying that cute outfit I like becuase my arms/legs or other miscellaneous body part would show. I'm done with feeling like an outcast.

Just. Totally. Done.

My work started a biggest looser contest in the fall, around Oct, and I decided that that was as good a time as any to start. I will admit, I didn't loose as much as hopped, but it was a good start. After falling off the bandwagon around the holidays, I'm wanting to get back on the path and seriously get down to business.

Started in Oct at 305 lbs. Total weight lost so far is a little under 25lbs. My goal is a total weight loss of 155lbs, so 25 lbs is a start. I'm trying not to stress over it and just accept it as a positive and keep going.

Most of my friends and work associates range anywhere from annoreix to model thin to on the dot normal. Being that I'm the size of about 3 of them put together, it's not always easy to talk about weight loss struggles with them. I found this group and thought it makes the task seem easier knowing that there are people with similar goals, struggles, and successes out there and that WE CAN DO IT!!!

Hi everyone! My name is Nikki, I am 22 years old, I have a one year old and a two year old. In the last 2 1/2 years with my pregnancies I gained over 100 pounds, And since I needed to lose about 20 or 30 pounds before I gained that I really dug myself a hole. I have been so ashamed of my weight gain the past few years I have avoided seeing most of my old friends because I was embarrassed, I haven't gone to event I would really have liked to have gone to because I was afraid of what people would think seeing me 100 pounds heavier than the last time they saw me. So I decided to do something about it, I have lost 39.6 pounds in the last 6 months, which is not as fast as I wanted to loose it or as quick as I thought I would be able to lose it, but it is coming off and I am trying to stay positive. It has been hard the last few months because my buddy reached her lifetime goal weight and has been slacking, not walking as much, or wanting to go to zumba, eating unhealthy things, and this has been hard for me and I have started fluctuating. But I am getting back on track.

Hello Everyone,

My name is Kelli and I am 26 years old. I will be turning 27 this fall, and I realized that I have wasted the best years of my life by being overweight. I have about 161 lbs to lose, and have felt really overwhelmed by this task. I've thought about finding the easy way out so many times, but I finally realized that having surgery or taking some "magic" pill would not be the best route for me. I realized that I just needed to accept the fact that I allowed myself to get to where I am, and now I need to finally do something about it.

My goal is to make small changes that will eventually lead to big changes. I have already stopped drinking sodas, and have started to exercise again. Right now I am just taking baby steps, but I already feel so much better about myself. My energy level is increasing, and I just have a good feeling that I am finally committed to making a change for the better in my life.

I look forward to the community that Spark People offers and hope that we all can be a great support to one another.

Is this where we stand up and introduce ourselves and admit our issues with being a fatty? If so, Great! I'm here! Let's get this party rolling.

Like my page says, I'm ready to do something constructive about my weight. I don't want to hit that 20 year mark of being overweight. I want to stop over eating, I want to quit soda completely, and I want to manage my carb intake more responsibly. I don't want to end up a diabetic or with heart disease. I want to be healthy for myself, for my son and future children, and I want to be a hottie on my wedding day!!

I guess I'm looking at this from a commical stand point. That's how I handle things, I make a joke out of it/myself. So here I am, I WILL DO THIS! I have to be! I wanna be a MILF!!

I'm currently at 255 and my goal is to be around 140 150. (That was the weight my doctor gave me) Hopefully I can achieve that.

Here's looking on the hopeful

Howdy y'all

My name is Amy and I'm 24 yrs old. Happily married to a wonderful man.Well I'm not too new to SP I signed up in Oct '09 and didn't really mess with it. Then about a month ago I got back on and realized how much more SP was. I started out at 255lbs and would like to get down to my first major goal of 160lbs. Once their my reward is to go off birth control, we'll let nature take its course. During that time I will continue to workout and eat my healthy food. I will stop at hopefully 140lbs or so we'll see how my body looks being that low who knows maybe lower that'll be crazy haven't been that slim in YEARS!!

Hello all!

My name is Kate and I am not entirely new to SparkPeople but I am making a more serious commitment this time around. I hope that being an active part of the communities will help keep me accountable.

I am currently 235.5 lbs and my goal weight is 126 lbs. I have broken my weight loss journey into 10% phases, so the first mini goal is actually 212 lbs.

I look forward to getting to know some of you!

hi all --

i'm new to the group (obviously) so just saying hello. i've been on SP for, oh, three days now, but i'm unemployed and need something to fixate on :) i'm 26 and currently around 320lbs -- i kind of freaked out when i realized i've gone up over 300 -- and want to get down to 120. i know its a huge goal, and i hate admitting my mother was right, but i want my 30s to be kinder to me than my 20s were. i'm really glad that there is somewhere online where i can look for support, so, thanks, and talk to you later!

Hi I am also new. I have used sparkpeople previously under a diffrent screen name,but I decided to re-fouce myself and my reasons behind my goals hence the new name. I'm currently 26 and about 350 and want to lose at least 200 -yes I know it will take awhile but i'm determined that I will not be the cause of failure once again. I wish every one luck in thier own goals and encourage us all to keep working at it.

Hello Everyone! I wanted to say hello, I've been on here for a little over a week and I am ready to lose this weight. Ideally I'd like to lose around 140lbs. Previously I lost 100lbs but gained it all back after I stopped going to the gym and went through a spell of serious depression. I went to my Dr seeking help for my depression and it really has helped me with my energy levels. I wish everyone luck in your journey and will be on here often! Talk to you soon.

I'm a 29 year old wife & mom to a 4-1/2 year old girl, struggling with weight rollercoasters for the past 10 years of my life. I am determined to make this a true lifestyle change, NOT A DIET, and really lose the 100+ pounds and keep it off for good.

I've actually been on Sparkpeople several times over the years and love this site, but I started up a new username just today.

I just started up a blog with my new mission...I'm on a quest to also save $100/month on my grocery budget. There's a challenge starting June 20th with All You Magazine where you can win $1,000, but I'm starting early to practice. See my blog link in my signature if you're interested.

If you have any tips, ideas, or recipes on how to cut costs on groceries while staying healthy and creative, I'd love to hear from you. 100lbs100dollars@gmail.com.

Thank you so much!

Hello,

I'm Ashley and I'm comming back to Sparkpeople after shocked out of my crocs. Long story short, I got a pretty good view of where I'm going if I don't shape up (sorry, but I'm a punny gal :D ). I'm currently carrying the equivilant of an extra person on my frame and they've really got to go. Just to get from the obese to overweight catagory (bmi) I need to lose 100 or so lbs, so that's my big goal to reach for this upcomming year: 100 lbs in just over a year. I keep saying I'd be happy losing half of that, but that's because I keep doubting my ability to keep at it and actually make it. Over this past month, I've learned that I really just need to get over these self-doubts (thank you Beth Moore!!!) and get at it so here I am... at it. :)

Hello,

My name is Lily... I'm 22 and I weigh 280 lbs. My drivers license lies because no one can tell how much you weigh when you're a giant apparently. I let myself spiral down into depression where food was my comfort and joy.

I am an artist who is low on drama. I tend not to hang out with people my own age more because when not being thrown into circumstances that I have to face to face with the public I am a recluse. This is probably due to the 100 Lbs I have gained in the past four years.


I live in New Zealand with my family for half the year, and on the East Coast/Midwest with my partner the other half of the year.

I believe there are many other things to write, but that should suffice. :) Hello everyone.

Hi Ashanti!!!

I had the same thing that you had, Pseudotumor cerebri.When I was 12 I was vacationing in Florida with my grandaparents and woke up with a headache. I would say it was about a level 5 on the pain scale. I figured it was just a regular headache and it would go away. 7 days later I had the same headache that would not go away. By the 7th day I started to throw up. I told my granmother who then rushed me to the doctor and lukily I got referred to a doctor that specialized in this type of condition. 8 spinal taps later, they said if I had to have one more they were going to do sugery and I was going to have to have a shunt put into my head to automatically drain the excess fluid. By some miracle, I didnt have to go back and have another one, and the doctor said that it just corrected itself. I have never spoken to anyone else that had the same thing happen to them! Just wanted to share my story with you incase you too have never met anyone that has had the same condition. Its nice to know that youre not alone in the world with a rare condition! :)

I have a very active 3 year old daughter and a supportive husband as well. I was given this website by my dr., never knew it existed. I've been on about about a week or so, and so far it has been very helpful. Since I have been on I have lost about 8 lbs, it seems small but I am so happy because I am at the heaviest I have ever been...I hope to keep on pressing on...

Taking little steps to a healthier life...

Hello I'm Jen. I am 24yrs old and live in the Bay Area of Ca. I found this through Livejournal and found it very inspiring. I am about 5'10 and weigh currently 290lbs. I want to lose at least 130lbs and see from there what I want to do. Feel free to friend me. If you live in the East Bay area do not hesitate to contact me for working out etc. I am always up for making new friends on this journey.

Hey, I'm Tish. I'm from California but living in Oklahoma.

I've been ignoring my weight since my early teen years and now I see how bad it's gotten.

I make big plans to change and nothing lasts more than a week. I definitely need some morale support or a friend to push and be pushed by.

Hey. I haven't gotten through law school yet, but hope to at some point. I'm a late starter. I also need to lose 100 lbs. Exercising will be a great way to relieve the stress of studying for the bar. Good luck.

Hello everyone! I'm Ashley I am 25 & reside in the Baltimore area.

I went to a cookout a few weeks ago with some friends & we took pictures. When my friend posted the pictures on facebook it was a wake-up call. I did not realize how much weight I had put on in the last 5 years. I joined the gym on 5/14 and am looking foward to being 100 pounds lighter by this time next year!

Hi all,
I'll post more personal info as I get better acquainted with the board but a little about me for now: I am 26 years old and graduated from law school last week. I figured now is a good time to get started because I am going to be spending the summer on a very structured schedule studying for the bar exam so its a good time to work in regular exercise and manage stress. I hope to participate more fully and get to know many of you better, good luck everyone!

So I joined at the end of April and my first week was a major adjustment. Of course, it should be. I've done a lot better and plan on moving full speed ahead. I WILL be 100 pounds lighter by the end of next February!

Hi, my name is Vickie. I started this because I want to lose 140lbs and get toned. Right now, I can't even chase after my kids and it saddens me. I want to be able to run around with them and not be left out. I want to lose weight, and find people that are in the same boat as me, and here success stories of those that have met their goals, and understand what I am going through. I look forward to getting to know everyone and wish you all the best on reaching your goals!

I hope I am doing this right. lol
My name is Tara and I am 26 years old. After going up and down for years (but mostly up) and being only 4 pounds away from my highest weight, I've decided it's time to stop depriving myself of carbs and sugar and make a lifestyle change. My goal right now is to lose 138 pounds.
I am about to move to a different city in a few months to start working on my masters and really want to use this time of change to transform my entire life to make myself healthier inside and out.
I'm really excited about joining this forum and am excited for us all to start on this journey!

Your determination can control your mind! Your mind controls your body! So tell your mind to tell your body that one more push up, sit up, jumping jack will not kill it!
