Welcome to the team everyone! Christina, there are a lot of articles in the Healthy Lifestyle section geared to families and healthy living. Take a look, I know you will find a lot of good advice there!

Brooke, now is a good time to develop those healthy habits! I work in an elementary school and there are a lot of temptations and people to get you off track. Starting with good habits will help you avoid all of that. I try to avoid the teachers lounge altogether!

Hi everyone. I joined today and have a goal to lose 50 pounds in six months. My husband is joining too and we are hoping to get on track with healthy habits so that we can teach our 1 year old son a better way to live. Any advice on how to use SP as a family? (ie to prepare meals for the whole family using nutrition tracker?)

Hi, I'm Brooke. Just joined Spark people yesterday and figured I'd introduce myself. Not really sure what to say so if you want to know anything else message me (i think that's the only way to communicate on here =/ ill learn quickly) Anyways, I'm from Alabama. I'm 20. Currently in college, majoring in Elementary Education. I haven't decided if I want to teach 3rd grade or 5th grade Math. Ecstatic about teaching (a year maybe less to go!)! That consumes most of my time. Struggled with weight most of my life and living with my parents makes it a bit more of a challenge. I'm determined, stubborn, neat freak, honest, love to make people laugh, etc. Love to meet new people, let's chat! emoticon

Hello, I'm Sara. I joined Spark People to get me started on my weight loss. I think joining a community is going to really help me because I've tried to lose on my own, but I haven't been consistent of stayed with it for very long. I hope that I can make some friends on the way and reach my goal!

Welcome to the team and Spark People, there are lots of good ideas for you here. Let those boys become your gym! They will love playing with mom! Not only do you get exercise but you get great bonding time as well. Let them help you cook healthy meals, even little ones can tear up lettuce.

Hello all, I am Frannie and I am one of your co-leaders. I am a 53 year old married mother of 3 and I started on Spark People a little over 2 years ago. I found myself here weighing 205 lbs, a weight I swore I would never reach. Since joining the site I have lost 60 lbs and am still working on the last few.

emoticon Hello everyone!

Introduce yourself here and tell us what your journey means to you. I wish you all success and great accomplishments as you aim for your goal. We can all be successful if we stick together and help each other along the way.

My name is Marlene and I am a co-leader of this team. I joined Spark People in November 08 and have lost 60+ pounds. My goal was 55 but a few extra won't hurt. Went to the first ever Spark Convention in May and wouldn't be where I am today without SparkPeople!

Looking forward to meeting each one of you.

Marlene
