Hello,
I am very happy to join this program. I work at a hospital and one of my favorite nurses told me about this website. Soon to be 55 years old, I must do something about taking charge of my mental and physical well being. Thus, I start today with the BBQ's--SparkTeam. I love the name! I look forward to a successful year!

Hi everyone. My name is Nicole. I am 30 years old and I live in Fresh Meadows, Queens, NY. I just joined SP. I heard about this from someone in a meeting that I attend once a week for weight loss. I have lost motivation in my weight loss journey and I am looking to get back on track. I am always looking to meet new people and look forward to learning from the experiences of weight loss from my sisters!

Hello Everyone,

I've been on SP for about a month, but just recently joined this Team. I am ready to make a change in my life so i can be healthier and more active with my teenage daughters. I'm just tired of being tired all the time. SP has been such a wonderful tool, helping me to track my nutrition and fitness, as well as guiding me on the do's and don'ts. So far i have lost 14lbs. I hope to gain and encourage many BBQ's to reach for their dreams and master all their goals in life. Have a wonderful weekend!!

My name is sherrita but everyone calls me michele(it's my middle name). I joined sparks to help guide me in my weight loss. I have multiple sclerosis and because of the meds they give me my weight loss will be slow but i am not going to give up. I am a single mother of two boys, they are my rocks. I have a wonderful boyfriend. I guess that's about it right now.

Hello everyone. I just stumbled upon this site today and I can already see that this is going to be a very positive step that I will take to reach my goals. I love the fact that there are so many beautiful black women that are taking control. I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother, and an educator. Everything I do to reach my goals will have a huge impact on all aspects of my life and I hope that I can also be a positive inspiration and source to anyone else who needs me. I look forward to meeting new people as we progress on this journey of health and life together.

Hi Everyone. My name is Susan and I have set myself on a life change to lose weight and feel better about myself. A few years ago I lost 45 pounds, but gained it all back after stopping the diet. I never looked back. Now I am +45 previously lost and +15. I'm in a size 18W and I want to be in a 12/14. I estimated 65 pounds, but I also want to get rid of the rolls. I feel like I have a tire around my waist. I do not feel comfortable in my skin. I hope to meet some BBQs who can help me through this road to self admiration, weight loss, and a change in lifestyle.

Hello to everyone,
Looks like I keep starting over again and getting no place. But today I am going to take it one day at a time. I have been a member of this site for over 1 year but I have not had as much encouragement but today all of that has changed. I am thankful to find all of my BBQ that will keep me motivated to DO ME one day at a time until I reach my goal.

Well hello BBQ's :) I'm Ja'Nieka I am a 22 year old college student from Texas. Im glad to be here I am looking forward to a healthier lifestyle and a banging body. I would like to say j/k but Im actually not =) Im ready to experience life on the other side, I no longer want to step on the scale and sigh in disbelief. I know we are all here for change and to motivate each other and I think that is just the best thing in the world because I definitely need encouragement and I would love to be a support system for someone else. I find it so easy to eat the wrong things and not excerise but all of that is going to change starting now. I look forward to speaking with you all, good luck to everyone!

Hello BBQ's,
I just joined today and I'm kind of nervous about getting started, I'm hoping that I do well. I have a lot of bad habits to break and it's going to be a challenge. I was born and raised on that down south cooking and as you know that kind of cooking isn't always healthy, but I'm willing to make a change for myself, my son and my 3 grandchildren...but enough of that, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Joanne, I'm 52 years old. I have one son and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I have high blood pressure and my Cholesterol is borderline high...and YES I'm over weight...my first goal is to lose 10% of my weight, which is around 21 pounds. I've been looking at all the wonderful tools this website has to offer and I'm excited about getting started and being a member of the BBQ team. So any support you can give as I start my weight loss journey will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks. emoticon

Hi everyone! My name is Tam and I very new to SP! So far I am in love with all the features and support offered. I am happily married to my best friend and in Jan we will be celebrating our 9th year anniversary! I am 32yrs old and we both want to start a family...has been wanting this dream for a while now. I have PCOS and am overweight, so my first is to shed with weight. I lost 65 lbs 2 years ago and with the help of my pcos worsening, thyroid surgery and depression I gained it back. However, the devil is a liar! With the help of God, friends and family, I found my way again. I am on here to do what I got to do! And that is to reclaim my life back for once and for all!

My ultimate goal is to start a family by my birthday next year in April, or at least trying to start a family. I will let the Lord guide me and I will be His obedient student.

I look forward to getting to know you all and becoming a healthier person! I am also in school to become an R.D...which is another story (b/c I should know better!)...SMH...but, oh well! That's life! emoticon

Cheers to better health!

Good morning! My name is Lessie and I am from Greenville, SC. I am so happy I stumbled upon your team yesterday, I read most of your posts and realized that I wanted to be a part of your team. You all are so positive and uplifting, that is exactly what a person needs in there quest to do anything, especially weight loss. I am on a quest to lose my next 15 lbs...it seems easier for me if I look at it at in 15 lb intervals rather than a whole 45 lbs at once. My goal is to maintain a healthy lifestyle for me and my family and to help others do the same. I enjoy working out and running...most days. :-)

Hello my name is Charmaine, not new to Spark People I have just fallen off of the wagon. Funny how food is like an addiction for me and how I ate just to eat. I really realized it last week when I was tracking my food. I am ready to let this weight go off to never never land and just get off of my body. I'm in week two of my journey and feeling pretty good. Realizing that I don't need to eat out just about every day LOL. I live in the Pointes so if anyone is in that area and walks in the am shoot me an email. I wish you all the best of luck and I hope I can be a help to you in this journey as I'm sure I'll look to you for help and support. God Bless
Charmaine.

Most people think they know the answer. I am willing to admit I don't even know the question.

Hi my name is Shon and I am glad to be apart of this team. I am married to a wonderful man named Brian. We have 6 kids 4 are mine biologically, 2 are his. I am trying to lose about 55lbs. Everyone asks me when my baby is due. It makes me feel awful. I asked myself did it make me feel bad enough to do something about it? Yes! When I started trying to lose weight I was at 199lbs now I'm at 185 its a work in progress but I'm on my way.

Hello Queens,
Thank you for all your warm welcomes. A co-worker just told me about this site yesterday so I'm learning how to navigate. I just started the flat belly diet by Prevention (flatbellydiet.com) and lost seven pounds in two weeks (20 more to go) and feel really great today in my Bugle Boy size 11 jeans!!! emoticon
