Hi there -

I'm a Colorado-loving Femme, recovering from a 5-year-old injury that robbed me of my heels, my confidence and my love of life for awhile. The good news is that I've lost over 30 pounds in the last two years and I'm back in my heels (woohoo!) and I'm feelin' goooooooood!

Now to tackle the rest of this... stuff.. that is hiding the 'real' me :)

Hi Everyone! I am Amie. I am 35 and just started my new journey. I started on Jan 18 at a weight of 261. I am now down to 242. I am wanting to get down to 130 to 140. I want to be in better shape so that I can finally participate in Roller Derby. I am looking to make new friends and hopefully support partners. I look forward to meeting everyone!

I'm new to SP and think it is amazing. Lots of great info and support. A lil' about me, I am Korean-Chinese (mom)/Norwegian-English (dad). They thought I was gonna be a small petite "Asian" girl but thanks to daddy's genes I am 6'3" and currently 354 lbs. I think I have set some realistic goals for myself. And hopefully with a little help from SP I will reach them.

Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers, RayRay aka TwoBitMom. And you are so right on about nutrition and movement as one of the keys to success.

Taking care of yourself on those elemental levels will help in so many ways. If I can help you in any way, please let me know.

Sending you love and light.

On your side,
Di

Hey Ms...yes the ice breaker can definitely be stressful but once it's broken or thinned as you put it, then you can let out that breath and know the hard part is over. I've got pretty much the same philosophy. While I do have a "goal weight" my bigger goal is to be healthy. I was lucky to kick the smoking habit a little over a year and a half ago, while there are moments I miss it, they pass much quicker and I am thankful that I don't have that hangin over my head on top of the weight....not that I have weight hangin over my head...lol...you know what I mean. My goal tonight is to establish a work out routine so I guess I better get to it....good luck and hope to see you on here again.

Does anyone else think the "Ice Breaker" is the most stressful part of a meeting? Please, let me slide along the ice as it gets thinner, until i run into nice strong, soft, shoulders to lean on :) We'll get along much better for it. i like the game of sparkpages to try to make sure i 'level up' into good nutritional choices. It's awesome that along the way i happen to lose weight, cause i was tired of hearing "your little belly pouch is SOO cute!'

i've found it's tough to hang out with my girlfriends who have joined the school of 'fat positive'. While i certainly respect any self love, and don't think women need to fit the media stereotypes, i do like to talk about my healthy desires and don't want to feel pressured to shame that 'diet' is a dirty word. My diet isn't about achieving a particular immediate goal, rather it is to feel my best on the in and outside. And it is very helpful to keep on track and not leave it to chance.

If only i desired to quit smoking and didn't over-indulge at parties, i'd be on a good path

I'm Kat, a single femme in California who has always been a litte overweight. A couple of years ago, I ate my way up to 180 pounds from 145. Last year, I lost 30 pounds, and am now just starting to work the OA 12 steps, as well as attempting to get in to a normal BMI range.

Hi there, everybody!
I saw the link to this group on b/f.com, so now I've bought the book and I'm counting on this being the right thing for me! :D
I'm soon leaving Denmark to go to London for 6 months, and I have this dream of completely surprising my friends when they come over for New Years with having lost weight. I feel like it's time now, so I'm trying to stay motivated. Hopefully this Spark-thing really works! :)

Hi! My name is Elizabeth, and I'm from Dallas,TX. I was barely starting stage 1, and sorta got sidetracked, so I'm starting it all over again! It was pretty fun the first time around, so I'm pretty excited. I'm like that kid who opens a gift, gets really excited, forgets, opens it up a few months later, and gets just as excited the 2nd time around! LOL
I am in a new relationship w/ a very sweet butch. I gave the love ride another go round as well. LOL
So, I went looking in the team pages, and thought this seemed to be a pretty cool group. Thanks for having me on your team as well!

Hello from a happily engaged butch from Canada. My fiancÚ and I joined SP at the beginning of the month and so far I have lost 11 pounds just by changing my diet and using my treadmill almost every day. I want to drop down from my current weight of 250 lbs to around 180-190.
We enjoy riding our Harley, spending time boating, travelling and scrapbooking all of our memories. We have 3 labs and 4 cats. They keep us very busy. I am a 911 police dispatcher with 20 years on the job and also a Peer Counsellor. My fiancÚ is a nurse so we both have stressful jobs and work shiftwork. We have our work cut out for us but we are both very motivated. We have set a date for our wedding 9-10-11. So we have plenty of time to accomplish our goal.
I started my unhealthy eating back in May 2008 shortly after the sudden loss of both of my parents. My Mom passed away unexpectedly on April 22 and the day after her funeral my Dad went to the hospital by ambulance and then passed away on April 30. So that's when I started to pack on the pounds trying to deal with my grief.
I know what I need to do to make it to where I want to be and SP has helped me tremendously.

Hi everyone! I happened upon Spark while looking for lesbian living communities online. I am an RN in NJ and about to take my current relationship to the next step. I have gained 5 pounds recently and would like to get rid of it. I am an on/off gym member. I had previously lost 35 lbs and do not want to get there again! Just trying to stay healthy and maintain my clothing size.

Hola everyone. ^_^

So.. I guess I'm the newest noob. I happened to find Spark by chance while I looking at some info about Jillian Micheals (she's a total babe.) And so, I figured I'd give it a shot.

You can call me Vincero (It's Italian for Victory). I am a 22 year old single lesbian going to school for my bachelors as a Vocal Performance Major in Louisiana (no not LSU). Originally from Austin Texas.

I've never been good at these things, as you can probably tell from my profile so... perhaps we might just get a chance to converse later and you can see what I'm like for yourself.

Either way, I'm really excited to see if this online support system in loosing weight and just... being better in life really does help me. ^_^

Hope to see you all around. ^_^

Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Hi,
My name is Kat. I am from a small town in the mountains of western Maine. I am 41 years old and am in a very happy and emotionally healthy relationship. We are so happy, in fact, that we both have gained 30-40 pounds in the 2 years since we moved in together. Fat & happy, that's us. Anyway, I'm done with the FAT part. I am getting on this band wagon to being healthier and looking better. I lost 3.5 pounds on my first week of trying so I am really psyched. I'm the kind of person that needs to see results or I end up given up. Not this time!

Hi all!

I'm a happily partnered 33 yearold femme in Columbus, Ohio. I've struggled with my weight since forever, it seems. Was very successful losing and keeping weight off with South Beach but went through a breakup three years ago and just kept gaining a couple pounds every month...for years. NOT GOOD! LOL

My Beloved and I are seriously thinking about starting a family and my focus is starting to move from weight to health. I'd also love to know other lesbian parents, particularly lesbian "dads" who might be able to help support my partner as she navigates potential parenthood.

Thanks!
Amy

My beloved child, break your heart no longer. Each time you judge yourself, you break your own heart.

Hey Wontbebroken;

I had the same trouble...I actually still do, with my hands swelling..
By the way, my name is Cathy, and I just joined today,lol.

For me, what happens is, when I walk, even though I am pumping my arms, my hands hang down, so all the blood goes to my hands....they swell up, and feel hot.
It is not as bad in cool weather, but it does happen.
try walking with your hands up, near your chest...it looks funny, but if it works, then you know it is not from any health problems...
Good luck, and I hope to hear more...

Cathy

Hey everyone! I'm Andrea, 29 year old femme and "chapstick" lesbian from Alberta, Canada.
Hmm, what can I tell you about me?? Well first off, I joined Spark earlier this week and have mostly been muddling through it, figuring things out. I've decided that I NEED to be less than 200lbs by my 30th bday (7/31/2010) because I'm really tired of being fat. And heck, why not give myself a fabulous new wardrobe as both a milestone bday gift AND a reward for losing at least 114lbs??!! Let me tell ya, it's gonna be a tough road for me so I'll need all the help I can get.

Who's with me??!! emoticon

What would you attempt if you knew you could not fail?!

Hello everyone! Decided it was about time I introduced myself...I'm a 49 y/o happily partnered high femme living in NC. I started this journey on October 23, 2009 when I went to a wonderful doctor who specializes in weight loss without surgery - diet,exercise and, if you need it, medication. Here I am 8 months later and 114 lbs lighter. Still have a little way to go but I look and feel wonderful!

There is so much more to me than that number on the scale!

Hi just wanted to introduce myself. I am Angela and I am 25 and have finally decided to removed all the negative from my life. It was after I was strong enough to end a long term relationship that just wasn't working that I decided I need to take back control of all aspects of my life. So I have always loved to cook but I am learning to make health alternatives to my meals now. And after reading "Eat This, Not That" I have realized home much crude I was putting inside my body. I am going to lose weight the right way this time (I have always struggled with my weight) and keep it off. I cant wait to see where I am in a year.

Hello Everyone--

This is my first post here in a long time--glad to see a butch/femme team! I live in upstate NY with my partner of four years and our menegerie. I have two daughters, 21 and 17 and work full time as a social worker. Life is busy, but good. I'm about to accept a new job, which is exciting and scary. My partner and I have both put on weight. I guess we're fat and happy...I'd rather just be happy! I have not lost anything in the past few months. Hoping that this connection will help add to my motivation and inspiration. Congrats to everyone who has lost weight or made progress toward their goals.

HI All, I am a 29yr old femme from upstate, ny. I am engaged to my baby of two years who is the love of my life. I have a five year old son from a previous marriage and we have two dogs a mini hotdog and a japanese chin/toy jack russell mix.

I weighted 300 March 1st and just started working out in the past two weeks, just walking each day at lunch with coworkers and I weighted in last night at 272. I have not seen that weight since 11th grade in HS.

We are getting married October 3rd 2009. WEll thats when were suppose to be getting married but everyone is stressing us out with opinions and beliefs and we just found out neither one of our parents are coming, and its just been really stressful. I want to just elope lol.

I look forward to getting to know everyone. Does anyone know if there is a upstate ny lesbian group of any sorts?

Hi everyone! I'm a 28 year old fierce femme in Central California. I moved here from Los Angeles, where I was vegan and worked out regularly. Once I moved here, I switched to an omnivorous diet, and stopped working out. Consequently, I gained 25 pounds! I also started some really, really unhealthy eating habits. So, I'm transitioning to a raw diet, and trying to get back in to the swing of exercising regularly.

Hi everyone. I'm new to teh group. My name is Cat. I just turned 31 and am married to one hell of a butchie. We both need to lose weight, for us, for our careers, for each other. She is going to school for Fire/ paramedic and I will be starting the psych tech program... which can be very physical. anywho, just wanted to drop in and say hello!

There is change that comes with TWILIGHT. A new chance with every NEW MOON. A glimpse of hope and power with each ECLIPSE. Finally with the BREAKING DAWN the success of the change is seen.

Hi Dressy good to see you back!!!!!!!!

The wii does talk to you, you can do yoga, strength, aerobics, and balance excercises on the wii, it does your weight and bmi. It tracks your progress and it has a really cheerful attidude. You make a mii character that represents you on the program. You can make it look like you or any way you want. So when you exercise on the wii board your mii character does the same thing on the screen. the wii sports (tennis, boxing, base ball, bowling) that we have lets you play all those too.
the wii fit also counts your excercise minutes for you. You can do say 2 different aerobic exercises in 30 minutes instead of say 30 on a treadmill

I hope your dr appt goes well.

and can you get unemployment?

Hi there!

I've been thinking of getting one. What is the Wii Fit like? I've heard it "talks" to you every time you log in. :) What kinds of exercise do you end up doing with it?

I'm hanging in there. I go to the dr. next week for a followup and I'm not looking forward to finding out my weight. Probably the same or more. I just got laid off from my job of 7 months so it's really tempting to eat over it. But I'm not going to, just for today.

Good to see everybody!

HI!! I have been on Spark a while back left and now I am back. I am "engaged" after 6 yrs to my boifriend (she identifies as queer...she is butch by normal standards.... well whatever normal means), We are having a ceremony in April and I want to look HOTTER!.... lol. I need to lose about 40 pounds maybe more, but I think I will be happy with 20. My goals are to be healthy and strong with a very conscience mind. I am a Hypnotherapist finishing my certifications. I am all about helping others with their goals but I am ready to focus on me. I have 4 kids and I work full-time. I have diagnosed with Fibromyalgia...but I kicked its ass! Doctors jsut don't tell you what you need to know. Any way... blah blah blah... WE CAN DO IT!! emoticon

Hi all! I am a happily married butch. I am not trying to lose weight, just trying to get the lean & mean body I've always wanted. My wife and I are taking this journey together. We want to live a healthier life! I look forward to hearing from you all.

Greetings All,
I am thrilled to find this team. I am a single Western Washington femme... I have been on Spark for nearly a year now, though I have not been much of a joiner to the various teams. After having dropped my first 80lbs, I am now finding my enthusiasm waining, so here I am. Eager to meet other glorious butches and femme who like me are interested in supporting each other in their goals to live fit and happy.

We are not the drops of water, nor are we the pond...we are the sum of all the ripples.

Hi to all
I am going to try to get to spark more often.
I am trying to be on the computer less, so I have more time to get things done and thereby have less stress. LOL

Hey everybody!!

I also have not been here in some time. Alot of stuff has been going on in my life - I'm trying to find a better paying job outside of work hours, my partner's 26 y.o. daughter has moved back in with us and is acting out, AND I'm beginning to process a lot of mental junk in treatment. My weight has unfortunately stabilized so I am doing my best to break through the wall I built around my feelings and see what is holding me back. I have my 20th H.S. reunion next year and need to lose this weight by then!

It's amazing... I turn around and there are 19 people on here!! COOL!! :)

Take care everybody!

Dressy

Hello to all, I am new to your group. I am up in New England living with my GF and my 2 nearly grown kids (17G-19B). I joined Spark People last year but gained a lot when I got together with the love of my life. Why? We love to eat and we love to cuddle:)Anyway I am on the way back down now as I have to meet fitness requirements for my jobs. My GF is a plumber and she can probably lose it easy once she focuses on the task. We will see! I am the femmie but after I put on weight I stopped wearing heels, dresses etc. I want to do that agian real soon!

Hi my name is Beth and I live in Louisville, Ky with my partner Maggie of 4 years. I am butch and trying to trim up and build up at the same time...lol. My partner is also trying to lose weight with me and we are dedicated to no snack foods....:(

I decided to join Spark as my co-worker Amy and I are trying to lose weight. We work at the wonderful Churchill Downs in Kentucky. I decied by next Derby to be at the goal weight of 200lbs. I am 5"10 and large build so that should be a good stopping point.

I welcome all of you on here and wish all of you luck and patience with losing the weight. Hit me up to talk more, see ya later, Beth

Hola everyone! My name is Cat, I live in Southern Cali w/ my partner of nearly 11 yrs. A few yrs ago I lost 53 lbs on the weight watchers plan, but went through drama, and gained it back! So I'm going to watch my points and this time come to ya'll for support! lets see, what else....? I'm a fullt ime student and work full time...I'm 30, and plan on making my 30's the new and imporved 20's... since I was overweight during them. I am more femme than butch although somewhere in the middle... I wear makeup, do things w/ my long hair but am a total tomboy. (tried the butch thing, couldn't pull it off lol) My girl is a butchie, who is a real obstacle for me... she loves to eat anything and everything. Ok, enough babbling, lol.... its nice to meet ya'll!

The greatest revenge is success!

Hi, my name is Susan and I am a 43 year old butch woman from Scottsdale, Arizona. I just joined Spark People this week. I was pleased to see a team for butches and femmes. I am currently single as I ended a ten year relationship two years ago. I am currently in the process of looking at my issues, including my weight. I have always struggled with weight and would like to one day not have this be such a distraction in my life. Thank you for setting up this team.

Hi everyone, this is Dressy (known online also as DressyFemme)... I thought it would be so cool to have a BF (& allies) space here on SparkPeople...
Let's share about ourselves and our weight loss journey(s)!

To tell you a little about myself, I'm a 37 y.o. partnered femme from western upstate NY who has been struggling with weight issues for about 11 years. From 2005 to 2007 I ate my way up to around 270 lbs. from 145, and I'm currently working the OA 12-step program (and an outpatient tmt. program) to lose the weight. It's quite the battle! But I'm glad to be here. Can't wait to hear from all of you!
