Hi everyone! I am Mel from Montana and have been pagan for almost 12 years now. I don't practice a lot of things. I just take things one day at a time. I consider myself an eclectic, solitary witch. It is nice to find a group that doesn't judge and say God will do it for you in every other post! I think I may just enjoy myself here. I am trying to get healthy for myself and my family. I have some cholesterol issues. May your god and/or goddesses bless you on your journey.

Grab life! It's the only one you got!

Hi everybody! My name is Annie and I am a graduate student in Medieval Studies, Viking reenactor, and Norse-Gaelic heathen. I am hoping to finally lose the insulation that has crept upon me in five years of school - I call it "From OK to KO in 43 Weeks!" I've started at size 18 and I intend on being a size 12 by Bealtaine 2011, my 24th birthday. I've been a pagan for over ten years now, and I am an insmar. Devotion to the All-father is a big part of my desire to be as fit and strong as possible. I'm glad to have found a SparkTeam group who understands! May your gods shine upon you and your journey to fitness!

Hi Everyone
I am new to this site and very happy to see a strong pagan group. Hope to meet new people and not be judged because of how I believe. I have a long road to go so this will be a nice change along the way. Now a little about myself. I am 47 years old, married for 27 years, have three lovely daughters and three wonderful grandchildren. I love hanging out in graveyards and even have a web site on them. I like to transcribe the graves and look up history on the residents of the grave yards. Love the outdoors, love photography, hiking etc., but I have one problem my weight gets in the way, so I have decided to do something about it. I have been on this life change now a little over a year. Its on again off again things if you know what I mean. I will take a side road but then will find myself back on the main road. My weight started out at 327 got down to 259, but do not want to step on scale afraid what I might see. Not sure how much I gained back from the side trip I took. I will find out this morning when I get on the Wii. My workouts have been once a week and that is on tuesdays when I go to the gym with my father. So today will start my everyday workouts , I should say with the help of the Goddess they will be everyday.Well Merry Meet , Merry Part until we Merry Meet again!

Hello everyone! I'm Lacey and...I don't know what exactly I'd call myself? I guess eclectic would be the best word at the moment. I'm currently halfway through my year and a day of study before I commit to anything, and it's going well! I was really excited to find a group of other pagans that are trying to live out their faith and be healthy while doing it! =)


You are doing the right thing. You are doing beautifully.

Merry Meet,
I'm Sandria. I am a unitarian universalist pagan. I have been a witch for about 13 years and after my son was born 6 years ago joined my local UU church who has a big pagan community for how small of a church it is. I am part of the mooncircle covenant and the spiritual growth committee at church. I also teach Sunday school one Sunday a month. We also have a great pagan family connection through the society of elder faiths this way who has family friendly rituals on the Sabbats. I am pretty much out of the broom closet most of the time. I am a visiting nurse who works alot with elderly so I tend to just tell them I am UU if the ask it is easier. I am married to a wonderful husband who is also pagan and have a wonderful 6 year old son. I live in Massachusetts and have 3 cats and 2 fish. To everybody who is still in the closet I so have been there. I went to a seventh day adventist school for my associates and bachelors in nursing and spent 4 years deep in the closet as I lived on campus because it was cheaper. You do what you got to do and you find support where you can. I am here for anybody who needs to talk. I love being pagan and I will say now that I am able to be out I am much happier.
Brightest Blessings
Sandria

Hey! I'm Amanda and I guess I'd say I'm an Eclectic Pagan... Witch? (I'm pretty new.) And only out to my siblings and friends. I'm relatively non-practicing due to my environment. (I'm living with some very strict Christians that pay the bills and I don't need to be kicked out or "exorcised" right now.) However, I am hoping that will change once I move out - which might be for quite awhile. So for now, puttering around this place will be my way of expressing myself. You'll all just have to suffer with having me for awhile. ^_~

Greetings! It's wonderful to find a Pagan SparkTeam here!
I am Myriah, Pagan Witch, very active in my local community. Actually, I'm the Local Coordinator for the Rochester NY Pagan Pride Day Festival, so I am very much out of the Broom Closet.
I live in Bloomfield, NY, with my three cats.
I am looking forward to making positive changes with SparkPeople!
Thanks for being here!
Namaste!

Hi. I'm Holly. I'm 20. I wouldnt say I'm exactly "Pagan" but I'm interested in learning about all religious views. I'm still searching for my own truth and light. :) I live in Mississippi where most people are very close minded Christians. Some people around here honestly don't even realize there are other religions out there (my boyfriend before he met me for example lol). I love talking about all points of view and I love people who can teach me something and help me grow. Hope everyone is doing well with their goals and feel free to stop by my page and chat. :)

Merry Meet, everyone --

I'm new here (both to SP and PP), though I've been lurking for a few days and wanted to say hello. I'm a 27 year old witch in California, practicing for almost 15 years now with about 200lbs to lose. I'm just entering my Saturn Return in Libra and am trying to use that as a container for my weight loss goal. I'm also dedicated to Artemis and really, who has every heard of a fat priestess of Artemis?

Hello everyone. I just joined this group today. I have been studying paganism for about 2 years now and enjoy talking with like-minded people. I need to lose about 50 pounds, and have had some trouble getting started due to illness and injury this year. I'm feeling better and on my way! emoticon

Evening, everybody!

I'm Chanel and I've been studying Paganism for around five years now, but I feel as though I've been leaning this way my whole life. I'm going to be a junior in college this fall, and I hope to lose around 30 lbs by Yule. I look forward to meeting members from this group and gaining knowledge and inspiration from you all.

Blessed Later Days,

Hi, everyone, I'm Stephany. I've been interested in the pagan path since I was little but my family was Catholic so the grinding of trying to fit myself in a religious path that never fit eventually got much too tiring, so I started following my feelings and trying to read as much as I could. I sadly kinda suck at the self-taught stuff, so I recently joined a class that has helped me very much. I just joined SP yesterday and still exploring. I look forward to getting healthy and so glad that there is pagan teams on here.
Blessings,
Stephy

Morning Everyone,

I'm currently rediscovering SparkPeople and I wanted to make sure I stayed with it this time by becoming fully involved with the site and joining as many teams as I had areas of interests. As soon as I find a team of writers I'll have covered all my bases to have a reason to check in daily. :)

I write BiPoly Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy and I've been a practicing Gaian for over twenty years. My Pagan perspective infuses all of my writing and my entire world view so I'm excited to have found a group where I can incorporate it into my health and fitness as well.

Hello everyone,

I'm Goldie and have been on spark about 2ish months now. I decided that after my daughter was born it was high time to get into shape and get healthy so I can be around her for many more years. I'm struggling with it so much because even with staying under 1600cal/day my weight keeps fluctuation madly(can be anywhere from 3lbs down to 6lbs up day to day)So I'm trying to get a handle on that. If anyone has any tips please let me know :)

Merry meet!
I'm Elaine, your basic Goddess-Worshiping Tree-Hugging Pagan. Gaianic is the term I use when forced to give it a name. I'm grateful to be part of an open eclectic Circle that meets for all Esbats and Sabbats. We're essentially a bunch of Solitaries who practice together!
My amazing step-daughter introduced me to SparkPeople, and I'm so glad she did. I've lost weight before and gained it back, so it's nice to have a community and some accountability as a constant gentle kick in the rear!

Every choice makes a difference.

Keep your eyes on the objectives, not the obstacles!

Control it or it controls you.

Hello everyone, my name is Morgan, 20 year old female, and I have been interested in paganism since I was a child.

My family was christian, which didn't sit well with me. I didn't like how everything was considered evil, and I was supposed to live lifeless and wait for death to be with my savior.
So at around the age of 10, I found out about Wicca through a friend of mine, she was a wiccan, as were her family members. It seemed so beautiful and perfect. I went to many sabbats/rituals, and loved them. Mostly, I loved the acceptance the people all had, which was greatly missing from the christian church. Everyone just wanted to have a good time, and appreciate everything the universe had to offer.

These days I'm not quite wiccan, I still go to rituals with the same group sometimes, but I personally prefer to be a solitary practicing pagan, I feel it gives me more space for my personal beliefs, and I love that.

Hello and merry meet all!
My name is Kat. I don't have a trad to give you, I was taught by my family and it's just what we always did, although I am currently apprenticing with Christopher Penczak in the Temple tradition. I'm not specifically anything other than a fat witch right now lol.
I've come to the belief that in order to truly honor that which is divine within ourselves we must also honor that which is earthly...our bodies. By trying to attain health and balance in all areas of our life we strengthen each as well so that they can work together as a unified whole. I feel blessed to have found this group to help with both aspects of the journey.
Since others have mentioned it, I have worked with several deities in the past but several years ago Hecate called me so I'm primarily devoted to her.
Blessings of light,
Kat

I just joined Spark to lose weight & become a healthier me. I am an eclectic solitaire but recently joined an online Wiccan College mostly to make contacts. I live in a very small town in Tennessee so I don't have many 'witchy' friends. I'm hoping to find the motivation I need to stick with this lifestyle change.

I'm familiar with living in a conservative area. I'm in KY, 'the buckle of the Bible Belt'. I live in one of the more progressive areas of the state, but it still has its share of fundies, homophobes, and old-fashioned racists.

Good luck with your journey to better health, and blessed be!

Hi Everyone!!! New to this group but have been on Spark People for about one Month and One Week. Although I have been on Spark People before and found Success, for various reasons I Quite and Now I'm Back Again. And Very happy to have found this group. I am an Eclectic Solitary Pagan. I belong to other spark teams, but got a little tired of them shoving christian believes at me all the time. They just seem to assume that everyone is christian and well it bothers me. So Am really glad this group exists. If anyone wants or needs a weight loss buddy look me up on my Spark Page! Blessed Bee emoticon

Hi everyone!

My name is Ally. I'm 27 years old and engaged (wedding in September.) I'm actually not having any wedding or handfasting ceremony- just the State wedding- so I'm not here for bridal purposes. I just want to be healthier. My soon-to-be-husband and I would like to start a family soonish.

Oh yes- also I'm going to be immigrating to Germany just before my wedding. He's German and I'm a German major in university and just about to finish that up come May. Juhu! ;)

I'm a solitary/eclectic/what have you. I am pretty Celtic-centric and address pretty much anything devotional I do to Brigid.

I'm very pleased to meet you all! It's great to find a place where I can talk about my faith AND my fitness. They're pretty related for me right now... I go to Brigid a lot recently on the subject of health.

May the road rise!
Ally

Merry meet, everyone! I'm Ceanncait (aka Leah). That means "long-eared owl" in Irish Gaelic (the owl being one of my spirit animals). I'm a solitary eclectic pagan living in a very conservative part of the country so I'm pleased to have found this group!

I've struggled with my weight for the last ten years after a skinny childhood and young-adulthood. I think I'm still skinny in my head, which might be part of the problem! I've no desire to be skinny now, only to be healthy and respectful of the body the Goddess has granted me.

Looking forward to getting to know you all!

peace...Leah

Merry Meet!

I consider myself eclectic Wiccan but follow my heart, ie God and Goddess more than anything. I have been on SparkPeople for quite some time but fallen off the wagon more times than I can count. I now realize that for change to be effective (at least for me) it needs to encompass mind, body and soul and my spiritual life has grown by leaps and bounds since then.

I live in South Dakota which has a growing Pagan community of which I am fortunate to be a part of, along with my husband. Two kids (both grown), one dog, two cats and fish round out my family.

I look forward to meeting and losing weight with all of you!

Brightest Blessings,
Iren

hello all i am new here and my name for nw is Fyrstorme. A friend of mine told me i should change it to wind or something because he really didn't like "Fyrstorme" he said it sounded too mean and unpredictable. I am wiccan and have been every since i was old enough to know my place in the world about 5 years of age. During that time i was living with a very christian family and didn't darn talk about my chosen path only i didn't know it was called wiccanism. Funny huh??? I am 39 and i am finally starting to come out of the fog of confusion and fear. I am proud of what and who i have become because of my spiritual journey. and i try to raise my boys with and open mind. Love all and try to over look the wrong others do to you. Sometimes it is hard and i want to lashout but i just remember there is a karmic law in effect and that they will be paid back and i soon forget what was done. Love and hope and truth and honor are the keys to a very happy and fulfilling life here while we have our time. Blessed be to all who help each other without expectance

My name is Jennifer, and I'm so excited I thought to check the religion teams! I didn't think there would be any pagan friendly groups, but the little voice in my brain insisted that a website with this many people had to have at least ONE pagan group. Merry Meet, Everyone!

The older I get the wider the horizon seems...

Hello All!
My name is Jeremy, I'm 28, married w/ no human children (but 3 furry ones) and have 150+ lbs to lose. I have been on my ever evolving pagan path for 20 years now, and have been solitary every step of the way. I am an IT guy by trade, but hope to eventually open up my own Pagan Book & Supply Store / Coffeehouse some day.
I'm pretty new to Spark, but my wife has been using it for a couple of months now. I figured now that I have quit smoking its time to focus more on weight loss in search for better my health.

Did I forget to introduce myself here? I tend to do that. The introvert finds ways to win even when Im consciously trying to ignore her!

I am a writer of GLBT erotica and a pagan slacking on her magical practice. Ive been attuned to level two of Reiki, but have no intention of going for Master. I still call myself new to SparkPeople because it takes me so long to figure out new sites and find the forums that fit me.

Im here (on SP) to force myself to be accountable for my eating habits and lack of exercise habits. Im here (at Pagan Place) because I want to get back in touch with the pagan community which Ive missed desperately over the past few years.

Hi all - I'm new to the team but not to SP. This is my 4th year. I've been on a long journey but I'm going to finish it come this next year. I was Wiccan for awhile, but am now more on my own path, more herbal than ritual, I guess. :)
Anywhooo, I hope to make some great friend here and I'm happy I found ya'll.

Hello all! I hope I'm putting this post in the right place...!

My name is Meghan, and I just joined SP today! :) I'm going to make this short and sweet and just say that I joined in order to have some inspiration in starting my new, healthier lifestyle. Umm... I'm a 24 year old Pagan massage therapist that lives in LA. :)

Guess that's about it! Nice to meet you all! ♥

Hullo all!

I stumbled across this site awhile back, but lost internet access (my new pound puppy has anxiety issues and took them out on my ethernet cord a week after -my- computer kicked the bucket).

So now I'm back and glad to find a pagan community here, as returning to actively practicing and studying my faith is one of my major goals. I've been walking a pagan path since I was 12, I was raised around hippies, shamans, and non-mainstream faith or open-minded Christians. After a lot of digging into Christianity, I decided it made no sense for me and have been finding what -did- since.

2 years of traumatic life changes have pushed my faith to the sidelines, and now I am stable and healthy and financially secure again so it returns to the forefront. I am seeking an initiation (eventually) into a Traditional coven, preferably Gardnerian or a related BTW group. And, while waiting to find the right group locally, attending to my ever expanding knowledge base and skillsets of good witchery - which doesn't always look anything like 'pagan' practice, but hey.

I love this! It ought to be put into calligraphy and framed. ;)
Nice to "meet" you!

Merry meet, everyone! I'm so glad to find a Pagan group here at Sparks!

My name is Suzi and I was born with a Pagan soul, but raised Catholic. I came home to Wicca in 93, so it's been 15 years for me. I've been both solitary and HP in a coven, but am currently following the solitary path again. I'm ordained, so I do some community work, and celebrate Sabbat rituals with my husband, kids and a few close friends.

I'm a Celtic Witch, primarily (Irish Faery Wicca) but am also initiated as a Bard with OBOD. My heritage is Irish, Scottish and English, so those are the traditions I draw from.

I'm also really into yoga and Ayurveda and try to incorporate yogic philosophy into my daily life as much as possible.

I live in northern MN with my husband (another Pagan yogi), my youngest son, 4 cats, 2 bearded dragons and 5 boa constrictors. Our oldest and middle child have both recently moved out on their own, so I'm dealing with some "empty nest" issues, lol.

I'm currently studying to get certified as a Holistic Nutritional Consultant. I'm glad I found Sparks People because I think it will help me to be more aware of my calorie intake. I love to cook and to eat! I'm starting a low-calorie, low-fat seasonal diet based on the program outlined in the 3 Season Diet by John Douillard, which I found to be very inspirational and in line with my values.

So that's my story! I've got a lot of weight to lose :74 pounds. I'm confident that i can do it if I use a mind, body, spirit approach. As the saying goes, where there's a Witch, there's a way!
