Hi I'm Allison, I've been on Sparks many times over and I'm back once again,this time for good! I'm a SAHM of a 4yr old boy,he's in "preschool" 5 half days a week,which gives me a nice break to get things done that I don't like doing when the family is home(cleaning/workouts/phon calls)
I hope to get to know the team and help everyone meet their goals!!

Hi! My name is Kelly and I'm the mom of three little boys, 5, 6 & 7. I have a really hard time losing weight, but finally feel some motivation since starting to have an energy drink (Delta-E) and a "green" drink called Enerprime every morning. Now that I'm feeling great and have energy, I need to starting working out on a regular basis and eating better. Being a mom of three little boys makes that tough, so that's why I'm here. Can someone tell me how to get a weight tracker on my signature? Thanks!

Hi all!
I am new to this team, but not new to SP. Here the first time in 2010 and lost 20 pounds. Starting again today after gaining 24 pounds this year. Definitely in need of support and accountability! Would like to lose 30 pounds by summer.

I am 34, married for 14 years to my hubby Will. We have 2 children. Sierra is 7 and John is 3. I work Monday-Thursday at our church. I love having Fridays off and the long weekends to be with my family.

Hi! I am 25 and the mother of 2 amazing daughters! Alecia is 3 and Brianna is 9 months. I have joined this site in the hopes of concouring my battle with losing baby weight. From both pregnancies! In a matter of 4 years I have gone up 80 lbs due to pregnancy and quitting smoking. I was 145 before my first child and 225 when I delivered my second. I am down to 177 which is awesome, but I'd like to keep climbing down!

Hi! My name is Jennifer and I have a wonderful 2 year old boy named Jake. Between keeping up with Jake as well as the business that his dad and I started about a year ago, I feel like there is no time to take care of myself. Since Jake's been born, my weight has steadily climbed, and now I'm to a point that I am so frustrated that I have to find a way to do something about it. My goal is to lose 60 lbs and get back to a weight where I feel good and confident again.

Hello! My name is Anna, I'm a single mom to a 27 month old special needs kiddo. My daughter is my life. Lillianna is a miracle. She has a rare genetic disorder that has set off a chain reaction of other conditions. In her short life she has had two skull/brain surgeries, borderline diabetic, significantly delayed and still so full of love and life. I've put so much of myself into being her mama that I've lost sight of my goals and health. My goal is to lose 60lbs. I need to find great recipes to accommodate for her dietary restrictions, and still provide healthy food for her, my boyfriend and myself. It's time I love myself enough to take time and get healthy. :)

Hi everyone! I am a stay at home wife and mother. My son is three years old and I love him to death. As any other mother or wife I wear many hats and it seems I'm too tired to do things for myself like workout! I have been on Spark before, but I got away from it. I really need some motivation so I can stay consistent and be that fun confident person I used to be.

Hi all! I am a wifey, mamabird to 2 BEAUTIFUL little girls, friend (yes, the crazy one), caretaker, dog walker, house cleaner (well sometimes ;D), life scheduler, playdate maker, bill payer, negotiator, and the list goes on and on. I love my life and am grateful for the crazy chaos I am fortunate to have, but at times it reaches fever pitch and I'd like to eat 2 cans of whipped cream with whipped cream on top under the covers with my music BLARING to block everyone out! My weight has become the underlying factor to the angry & miserable mood I encounter more and more frequently and my family deserves a happy mommy and wifey, so I joined Spark to help me get in the mix and get this weight off with the support of people traveling this road too! I was navigating through different member pages and have to admit, you are all incredible inspirational and motivational, so thanks for giving me a kick in the hinney I so desperately needed!!

Hello. I just joined Spark today! My name is Candace and I am 33 as of today. My son's name is Asher and he is an adorable 23 months old (he turns 2 next month). I am hoping to figure out as a single parent how to balance everything so that I can lose the weight and feel healthy and sexy again.

Hi all! My name is Anna and I have been on and off SP for the last five years. I have this medical condition called no self control emoticon . It seems everytime I start out I end up quitting because a relaxed, yummy food lifestyle is just too good to give up apparently. So, here I am again toying with the idea of becoming both healthy and a good role model for my children. Which brings me to my children...I am a single mother to two boys. They are almost two and almost three years old. They were both oopsies, but I wouldn't trade them in for the world. My boys are my life!

I am here looking for some much needed support. I am grateful for any support, but am looking mostly for local (Twin Cities of MN) support as I feel I need someone that I can relate to on many aspects and possibly even become friends with off of SP. My hopes are to build friendships that I can bring into the real world and therefore help force my hand by seeing the good influence of others and having a mutually supportive friendship (something I do not have with many of friends and family).

Hello everyone.. My name is Caress and my two year daughter is Alaiah. She is my love and my life and the reason why I am on this journey to lose 100+ pounds. I have been over weight all my life but it didnt really pay a toll on me until she got here and I was too tired to play with her.

Hi! I'm Katie and the stay-at-home mother of two girls. Emalee is 16 and Katelynn is 3. I am looking to lose 100+ in the upcoming year so that I can be healthy for them and my wonderful hubby. I am finding it extra challenging since my family pulls me in so many different directions.

My name is Jonathan. I am divorced and have two children. I am the custodial parent and have my kids with me any time I'm not working. It's time to get healthy for them. I have a long way to go before they are grown. I want to be there to walk my daughter down the isle... in no less than 25 years... I have to survive and it's time to completely change my lifestyle.
I am also a firm believer in Jesus Christ. I strive to live my life with a "What Would Jesus Do?" mentality and I honestly don't believe that my body is a "Holy Temple".

Hello Everyone!!
My name is Shana and I have 2 sweet kids. Misha age 5 and Mykel age 2. My daughter is very self-sufficient at times. She's a lil sponge and soaks up everything that she can. Right now she is focused on reading and learning new vocabulary words. :) My son is in his two's and I am ready for three...he is VERY active. He never slows down...EVER!!! With both pregnancies combined I gained 80 lbs. :( I lost 15 lbs between pregnancies but it's back plus more. I need to get healthy for me and my kids. I have so much going on but I'm determined to get it right this time....husband, work, school, kids,....nothing is standing in the way this time.

Hi!
My name is Amber. I am a 30 year old mom to two incredible toddler boys. Samuel is 3.5 years old, and Joseph is 2. Having two active little boys to chase around has been very challenging. I commited to regaining control of my life and my weight in February of this year. Between February and July I successfully went from 196 pounds to 158 pounds!! Alas.... I rewarded myself with a break from dieting, followed by an extended break from dieting...followed by a large weight gain (15 pounds!) over the past 5 months.
I am finally getting honest with myself, and recommiting to my health and fitness goals. I know I can do this.
I am looking forward to connecting with other mom's who are facing similar challenges... toddlers, plus work, plus running a household, plus husband drama, plus, plus, plus!
Cheers all... here's to fighting the good fight!!!!!

My name is Leah. I have a 2.5 year old named Sidney (we call her Boo) and a 6 month old named William (who we call Wubba). I have been married just over 4 years, and will be 25 in January. My goal is to lose weight (about 60lbs left) so that I can be a good healthy example for my kids (and get back to my pre-pregnancy size), and so I can feel sexy again. Hoping this will help. I've lost 10lbs so far, but have found myself stalling, so I thought I'd check out this site and get some motivation!

Hi everyone! My name is Genalynn. I am 24 years old, married to a United States Navy Corpsman, and a Mother to a 2 year old energetic little boy named Alex. He has endless energy & is a ton of fun! We are always on the go..playdates, parks, the zoo...anything we can get our hands on! I am in the process of having my own Cake & Cupcake business in San Diego. I also work for a company called Gold Party Prospectors buying Gold for cash.I am also currently going to school for my Financial Management & Accounting Certification. In my spare time i enjoy reading, cooking, going for walks, hanging out with friends & I have recently decided that I want to learn to craft. I enjoy being a busy bee.

My husband and I have been married for 6 years. He is an extremely supportive man in every aspect of life. He has always been there to give me the support and extra push I need to get things done, and this is no different. I have always had issues with my body, but nothing that really bothered me too much. I think I may have finally hit my bottom. I am the biggest I have ever been & have decided to do something about it. My husband is currently deployed to the middle east and I want to surprise him by getting into shape before he comes home. Hopefully by then I will be a healthy, workout freak like him! I've realized that the healthier I am the healthier my son will grow up to be...and thats the best motivation for me!

Hello!
My name is Tamara. I am 29 years old. I am a mother to two younger children. I have a 3-year-old son named Aiden, and a 4 month-old infant named Zachary. These boys are going to keep me busy, so I need to get in shape to keep up with them! I also have other goals in mind. My husband and I have been married for almost 2 years. He is very supportive. He still tells me that he loves me the way I am, but if I want to get healthy he is behind me 100%.
Mainly I am taking baby steps and breaking down my goals into smaller increments. I know that I will need support and backing, and so far I am getting it from many places. I love to read, swim, enjoy nature, sing, and watch TV. I hope to make some friends, or at least find the information I need to help me achieve my goals!

Hi everyone, I'm Tara. I have 3 wonderful kids. 2 girls ages 3 and 8 and a boy who is almost 6. I will be 30 Feb 1st and am so unhappy with how I have let my body get. I am ready to take control and get back in shape. I would like to loose about 30 pounds. I am not only doing this for myself but for my kids. Nice to meet you all.

Hello to all.

My name is Tara and I am very new to SPARK PEOPLE. I am looking for some encouragement throughout thie epic battle I call weight loss.I have three boys ages 5,6 and 8. I am 28 years old and work full time in the travel industry and also coach youth cheerleading. My weight has spiraled out of control in the past two years and I desperately need to get my health and life back! I look forward to talking with you all and hope some of us will share a similar story and motivate one another.

Always stand for something or you will always fall for anything!

I only read a couple of these replies, but I am new to SparkPeople. I just joined earlier this week.

I'm Katelyn, and I'm 22 years old. I'm a full-time student at Nicholls State University. I'm a junior, and I am studying middle school education with focuses in math and english. I'm unmarried, but my daughter is Aubree Claire, who will be turning 2 in January. She's a constant bundle of energy, and she keeps me on my toes.

I've been overweight my entire life. At my highest weight (at 9 months pregnant), I weighed 264 pounds. I lost about 65 pounds post-baby. I didn't follow any specific diet plan. I breastfed my LO for 7 months, and I made it a point to walk 2-3 miles a day. The weight just melted off. I was 195-200 pounds at my lowest point, earlier this year between April and May. I was put on this AWFUL medicine called Seroquel, and it made me gain 20 pounds in a matter of 3 month. So, now, I'm back up to 219 pounds, which is why I'm here!

Rid your mind of "can't!"

Welcome to all the new members! Happy to have you here. Best of luck on your journey here and let us know what we can do to help.

I am one of the co-leaders but not sure if I ever introduced myself...

My name is Jamie. I am happily married and living in Brooklyn, NY. I am currently a SAHM to two little girls. Rebecca just turned 5 in October and she is in full day Kindergarten. Delilah is 2 years 9.5 months and will be starting school next September. I have a teaching degree and plan on going back to work next year but not sure in what capacity.

I have been a member of Sparkpeople since my LO was a few months old. I reached my goal weight in 2010 but have since gained a couple of pounds back. I would like to lose those again but I am pretty much in maintenance. I use Spark to help me stay as healthy as possible and hold myself accountable!

Please feel free to join our challenges. We will be starting some new ones (TBD) in December!

~ Jamie

Married to a wonderful husband and proud Mommy to 2 beautiful girls

Trying hard to get back on track and stay there - for them and for ME!

Hello, I'm a stay to home mom of a 9 year old, a 3 year old, and a 5 month old. My 3 year old was recently diagnosed with Arthritis and the stress has been hard to handle. I joined hoping that by making healthy choices and learning all I can about living healthy I can keep up with my kids and perhaps inspire their future lifestyle choices for the better.

Only you can.

Hello everyone, My name is Stephanie and I am currently (for 2 more months) a Navy wife. We are getting out of the military and working on our business. We have 3 children, Ryan 4 years old and Garrett and Savannah 2.5 year old twins. Life is a bit crazy but I would change it for anything! We are busy people but I am always looking for more ways to get my children more active not just crazy! :)

Hello everyone! My name is Amber. I am a 28 yr old USAF wife and SAHM of 2. My preschooler is a girl, who will be 3 in a week!

Keep time in its proper perspective. Remember the past - treasure the happy memories, but do not let what "used to be" outshine today. Learn from the painful memories, but do not let past hurts and angers rob you of your life and loved ones. Look forward to tomorrow - there is hope and unfound joy in each new day; but never get so caught up in what "could be" that you forget what is. Always take time to enjoy the love and beauty of the present moment; for life is lived in todays. - Me
