Hi everyone, I'm Lorri and I work at a small Walmart in Goddard, Kansas. I am the department manager for infants and girls. My goal is to get down to around 145 and also get fit. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired!

Hi! I'm Rachel and I work for the Pontiac Illinois store. :)I started in May of 2013! I am 2nd shift I.M. (unloader)... unloading trucks has really helped me to lose weight... When I started working for walmart I had actually started in Lawn and Garden, but it turns out that my anxiety does not like being on a register so my store manager had assigned me to unloading and I think it had been the best decision!!

You try you fail, you try you fail, the only ture failure is when you stop trying

Hi Wal-Mart associates. Im from Omaha, I work in a Neighborhood Market. I was surprised to see that there was a team on here but hey that works for me. Ive been on this site for a long time now but just havent found the right help for me. My biggest problem is motivation and how to keep things going. that is very difficult for me. I need in person help not online help. Im hoping there is someone here from Omaha who is doing this as well. If not any help you all can give me that has helped you would be greatly appreciated. Thanks All

Hi Sue! Welcome to the team.
I'm reading your post and all I think it... well it's that awful??!! The part that you are very busy at your cigarette and lottery kiosk. I'm not a fan of cigarettes at all and I think the lottery is a waist of money; maybe I'm just a fuddy duddy though...lol.
I hope you're able to reach your goal in becoming a healthier you. Spark People is awesome and has lots of resources for support so please utilize the site as much as you can. I hope to see you on this forum often!!

Hi Bergen! Welcome to the team. That's awesome that your store is having a challenge. Sometimes it definately makes a weight loss journey easier when you're not doing it alone and there's a bit of competition! I think it's do-able to lose 13 in a month, but don't expect every month to go like that! Your initial couple of weeks, you're likely to lose a lot of water weight and the more you start out at, the more of this you're likely to lose. Keep track of your measurements. Remember, even if the scale doesn't go down as quickly as you'de like, your measurements will help keep track of your progress!!
We went through remodel last year, it was a lot of fun; hard work though! The new jewelry departments just look sooo much better, so I'm sure you'll definately appreciate that afterwards!

Hi Patricia! Welcome to the team. I hope to see you here often! 3rd shift, to me, would be hard when it comes to weight loss or anything of that sort. I did it for just a quick bit and when I wasn't working all I did was sleep, literally! But it works for others. I work with an assistant that when they did their 6 months overnight, almost all they ate was cereal and lost like 30 pounds!
Good luck and I hope to see you on here often!

Hello! My name is Patricia from store #0564 in Oklahoma City. I am an overnight grocery associate. I started working there in July of 2008. I pretty much love working there (most of the time). I am hoping that joining the team will help me get on track and stay there with my weird schedule.

Hello, Cat! Welcome to the team!
When I started at Walmart 5 years ago, I started just 3 weeks before Christmas- and it was totally hectic, I remember. But it's a lot of fun. I love retail.
Congrats on the weight you've already lost and good luck getting the rest of the way to goal!!

Hello, Chantal, and welcome to the team!
Way to go on your weight loss!! I think it's great that you've reached goal and are still using SparkPeople to help you maintain. Too many times, people get to goal and end up gaining a little (or a lot!) of weight back. It's a lifestyle change and that includes tracking what you eat even aftre you get to where you want to be.
I have about 30 more pounds to go and I can't wait to get there- though it's gotten a lot slower the last couple of months. But I'll eventually get there!

Hi, I'm Chantal and I'm a lead CSM at the London,ON supercentre. I've been with Walmart almost 10 yrs now in different positions. I joined Spark in April to give me a boost towards my goal weight. I was in a rut and still had about 30lbs to lose. I'm at goal now but I'm sticking with spark because I want to keep on track and I love the community. To all who are working on their goal weight - it is completely worth the hard work and effort. If you fall off the wagon don't let it get to you. The important thing is to move on and learn from your experiences.

Hi Bobbie- welcome to the team! No matter how hectic of a day you have, try to log in and track meals and if you find yourself slipping, just come here to vent or when you need support!
I should take my own advice- I haven't tracked in forever... lol. But I've been having to work on a huge case the last couple of weeks and haven't had much time for anything.
Good luck with your journey to a healthier you!!!

Hi, Carol, and welcome to the team! Good luck with your inventory; hopefully the new backroom program has made it a bit easier this year! Either way, whether it's simpler or not, just the word INVENTORY makes me sweat. lol

Good Morning!!

Just wanted to stop in and introduce myself. My name is Bobbie and I am a cashier in Sandusky, MI. I have only been with Wal*Mart since May of 2008 but I am really enjoying it. I work with a wonderful group of people.

I am not new to SP, I have tried it before and I had much success but life always seems to get in the way and I always seem to fall off the wagon. But right now my life is at its most chaotic and if I can do it now I can do it at anytime.

Looking forward to chatting with all of you!!

Hello! I'm Heather, I'm 23 and I'm a CSM at walmart. I've worked here for almost 2 years now, started as a cashier, got promoted to courtesy desk, then moved to the photo lab now I'm a csm.
I've been on SP off and on for a couple years now. Trying to stay motivated and want to loose about 50-60 lbs to start with. I'm trying to get together with the people i work with to start a kinda biggest loser type club haha.. emoticon
As far as weight loss, I'm using my elliptical a few times a week (trying to every day for a half hour or more) and I'm looking into a gym membership at planet fitness, but because i work second shift it tends to be a pain to try and get out. In the morning I have my four year old so its hard. Wish me luck!

Hi, my name is Kim and I am the Domestics Dept. Manager. I have been with Wal-Mart for about a year and a half. I joined SP last year and didn't do well after getting sick for 5 months, so I am starting over this year. However, I am not "dieting", I am getting healthy.

I am married to my high school sweetheart and have 3 boys.

Good luck to all on their journey :)

Your limits are self-imposed

I should probably go ahead and answer my own post... :)
My name is Crystal and I am an Asset Protection Coordinator at work. I absolutely emoticon my job and the company that we all work for!
I joined Spark to see how well I could conquer the second half of my weight loss by myself. So far, I've maintained! I think now that the holidays are done and over, I will begin to get into the groove of things again (after I use up all of these fast food gift cards my husband and I received for Christmas!).
My husband and I have a 2-year-old son. He's that greatest ever!
My goal is to get to around 138 lbs; though I may end up being happy at 140-145. I guess we'll see when I get there!
