Hello everyone, my name is Lee, I live in Pretoria, South Africa. I joined SparkPeople in August 2007 but have not been very active for a long time. I'm now at home on study leave - I'm writing exams on 10, 20 and 23 October - Institute of Bankers Certificate so I've decided to get back on the horse.

The last three days I've got up early in the morning to do a 3km (took me 35 min) walk with my dog, Buster.

Look forward to getting to know everyone.

NAME: Jessica (Jessie)

AGE:36

BIRTHDAY: November 10,1970

MARITAL STATUS:happily married

CHILDREN:3 beautiful daughters ages 18, 16, and 11; home daycare with 3 year old twin girls and two brothers that are 3 and 2 years old.

WHERE DO YOU LIVE: St Louis area

HOBBIES:watching the girls play soccer or run track (whatever season it is), shopping, playing outside with the kids, reading (big HP fan!), having fun with family and friends

TELL US ALITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF My hobbies pretty much sum me up. I jumped into motherhood right out of high school. I married my highschool sweetheart. We met my freshman year (1985-1986). Each pregnancy made me fuller and fuller. As did each year of motherhood. Now with teens and a tween, shopping is a major event in our lives and I think it would be more fun to shop "with" the girls instead of just "for" the girls.

HOBBIES: Reading, hanging out with friends, going to my soon to be house and working on fixing it up

TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF: Well, I am in the early start of a divorce. I have managed to find another house, but it's a real fixer-up-er. It's about 115 years old and needs LOTS AND LOTS of love. Aside from that, there really isn't much else that I am doing. I wanted to go back to college this coming semester, but it's not gonna happen, and I'm looking for a job, so I've been pretty busy.

Everything that we've done so far is still here, so you can check out the different discussions people have had since the team started and maybe contact some team members that look like they have similar interests personally by their SparkPage or SparkMail. I put together a Scavenger Hunt toward the bottom of the board that will direct you to different features of the website, but there's really not too much to "catch up" on.

Relax and enjoy emoticon

WHERE DO YOU LIVE: Minneapolis, MN

HOBBIES: Trying to find an excercise I like as much walking/hiking such as yoga weight training and swimming, gardening,politics,puzzles and community activism

TELL US ALITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF: To begin with I just figured out why this group was on my SparkPage and more importantly that this group is there to help me navigate this web site. i was just punting on my own. I'm really not as spacey as I may sound. Maybe there was some block that had me thinking that I would have to figure this whole thing out by myself. I hope its not too late to join.
I came across this site when I was hoping for a workout buddy. I work the evening shift from 4 pm -2 am and I have not been able to find a consistant workout partner. I use to get into powerwalking and hiking until my knees couldn't take it. I have had to adjust my workout routine to compensate for the parts of my body that have not had enough attention. I have been working out with a trainer which has been great because I have learned how important being accountable to another person can be for my motivation. But the past few months I have been recovering from a rotator cuff injury and haven't been able to lift. I have been trying to increase my cardio but that has been difficult to keep up. So I need support to be consistant. This plan/website has alot to offer and I'm excited to start if its not too late.

Hi, My name is Angie and I am new to this site. I heard about it from one of my best friends from high school who used it to get in shape for a fitness competition. I have been doing weight watchers for a few months (I started at 194) but would like to quit it due to the cost. What a great site and it is free. I am getting married in 03/08 on a cruise ship and want to lose weight to be a thin bride and not be embarrassed to wear a swimming suit. I like to take my dog for walks but I live in ND so it depends on the weather if I can do that or not. We have extreme temperatures of over 100 degrees (with high humidity) to below 0 (with the wind chill). I need help with staying motivated, which has always been a problem with me. My favorite things to do are watch TV, Read, Dance, going to plays, Camping and Boating, hanging out with friends and family, playing with my dog and playing Bingo (a recent favorite). emoticon

Last summer I decided I didn't want to be overweight anymore. 9 months pregnant I weighed 237. After I had Hannah I was down to about 190. I don't plan on having any more kids so figured it was the best time to start losing weight. I followed Bob Greene's book Total Body Makeover and here I am, down to 153! I was 140 before I had my son but my goal now is 137 to be at a healthy weight.

I was never really big before, but I always thought I was. If I got up to 120 lbs. I'd start popping the diet pills. That was back in my 20's when diet pills still contained stuff that actually suppressed your appetite. I started gaining in my late 30's and by the time I was 45 I was up to 170. I then lost 40 lbs. after joining a weight loss clinic, but gained 30 lbs. back after my husband was injured in an accident and spent 5 weeks in hospitals. I rejoined the clinic and lost , but the diet pills (phentermine) made me sick. So I quit the clinic and here I am. I've been Sparkin' for nearly 2 weeks now and have lost 4 pounds as of last weigh-in.

Hi everyone,

This is a good/bad thing for me. I sigh when I think of the long battle before me, but it feels good to finaly be doing something about my health.
I am 45 and single again emoticon . It's a good time I take care of myself since my kids are grown and gone. I don't have any firm plans yet, but I have got started. I'm eating better, and trying to drink more water. Haven't got the excerize thing started, but I plan on walking on my lunch hour next week. Good luck to you all.

Hi I am new to this site. I'm doing a spiritual based program for 60 days. I have a ways to go to be thin and healthy but want to change for the better from the inside out. Not married, am a single mom and love my son to pieces :) I have a female Golden. I love bunnies and cats too. Pandas are cute too. It's one of my son's nicknames for me :P I'm almost going to be 40 in October. It would be great to drop at least 20 pounds by then. For me the weight is a secondary thing as my blog goes into. LOL but heck I'd love to be 18% body fat eventually. :)Nice to meet you all and hope to see us all graduate in the upcoming year!

I believe to be extra-ordinary I can't do it without God and I have to do what the ordinary person refuses to do.

I also think we can do anything if we are willing to pay the price and take the time that our goal requires. Are you willing to pay the price and spend the time to gain your goal?

CHILDREN: 2 naughty puppies and a cat

WHERE DO YOU LIVE: Twin Cities

HOBBIES: Running, biking, camping, travel, get together with friends, eating (and here we get to my problem)

TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF: I love to workout and do things outside, etc. My problem: I also LOVE to eat. Specifically, I LOVE to eat out. My fiance and I have really hectic jobs so we never know when the other is going to be home, in addition, I have a lot of evening meetings for work, so we tend to grab take-out a lot. I'm hoping that the food tracker will help me to realize how many calories I'm actually eating and help me to lose a little weight before my wedding.

I'm working from home at the moment keeping everything organised in a small home based business me and my partner have just set up. I miss all my friends and family from NZ, I cant' wait to go home and see them all next month! I have 4 brothers 1 older 3 younger, Yes i'm the only girl and i guess i prefer it that way! I'm laid back and down to earth but i do have a angry snotty side (don't we all ladies!!) i try not to let that win me over though. I've joined sparkpeople for the same reason everyone else has and thats to shed some pounds, kilo's, fat whatever you want to call it (it;s all the same) I needed some motivation and i suppose i've found it right here. So here it goes to me you and everyone out there! This is the first step..... emoticon

Well I did a Spark Page so a lot of it is there. I gained a lot of weight a few years ago and never got the guts up to finally do something about it until now. I started Weight Watchers in March and I'm doing great, but I like the online support here. WW charges $12.95 for their e-Tools, and this is free, so there you go. I have a hard time planning meals in advance so I hope this can help me a little bit. I have already lost 35 pounds on Weight Watchers, 47 pounds of non-baby weight, and 69 pounds since I was 9 months pregnant. I still have about 50 pounds to go. I hope to get to a healthy weight before Christmas, if at all possible.

I am trying to loose weight to be healthy and feel good about myself. I have been on countless "diets" as well as weight watchers (which is awesome but costly) Thought I'd try this out and hoping that it will help me get these pounds off!

MARITAL STATUS: married for 4 years

CHILDREN: 2 girls, ages 3 and 9 months.

WHERE DO YOU LIVE: St. Louis area

HOBBIES: it's all about the kids, don't you know!

TELL US ALITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF : I am a SAHM. I also babysit part time to earn extra money. I have gained over 50 pounds these last four years of marriage. After each baby I gain more and more . . . I need to lose a lot before I try to get pregnant with #3. I find losing weight to be very hard while staying at home. I can't leave my kids to go to the gym, so I am left to workout videos or walking with the stroller.

TELL US ALITTLE ABOUT YOURSELF

i just gave birth 5 mos ago and would like to lose the (over over) weight that i gained during my pregnancy...from 121 lbs, i am now 152!...hopefully by new year

this will be the second time im goin on a diet...when i had my first son i also gained too much weight...from 121 lbs, i got to 187 lbs!...it took me 5 years to realize i have to lose weight and when i did it took me 6 months to go back from 187 lbs to 118 lbs...i used atkins diet and really stuck to it!...however, its not easier to do it this time around coz of the demands of taking care of the baby...sometimes i do not get the sleep that i need to keep up with the exercises that i have to do or eat on time or even prepare the food that i should eat...maybe counting calories and the exercise provided by spark would be more suited for me so im giving it a try...it will take longer time to lose but its healthier...and as long as i get to where i want to be...im good
