I just wanted to stop in and say hello. I weigh 276 (according to the scale this morning). My current goal is 180, hopefully by November, my goal altogether is 150. I'm waiting for my boyfriend to propose, so I am hoping that I can reach that goal weight for my wedding, whenever that may be, lol.

I am a computer technician, so I spend a lot of time at a desk, plus a full time student...which means even more time at a desk (doesn't really help you lose weight)!!

Hi, I'm Georgia. I've been on Sparkpeople on & off for about a year, and I'm looking to get a lot more consistent with my efforts, both in exercise and nutrition this year. When I saw this Spark Team, I thought, that is me! I have never been at a "normal" weight as an adult, and I would really like to meet the healthy weight version of myself.

This team is for me. I have never been skinny. I'll shed some weight only to get it back. I'm 48 years old and need to get rid of 70 pounds before I turn 50. I realize I need change by getting rid of bad habits and replacing them with positive habits. Looking forward to a lifestyle change.

Hey, I am Laura in Georgia. I joined Spark today, just heard of it from a friend. So far I really like it! I am excited to get my weight loss journey underway and today it starts.
I am tall, 5'10, and I weigh 272 as of this morning. I lost weight doing it alone but then I hit a plateau and gained about 10 back. I have always been the "taller, bigger" girl. It is frustrating!
I am a mommy to 2 girls, ages 5 and 3.

Hi my name is Rachel. I will be turning 31 on the 21st. I am a returning Sparker. I hate the sound of that but it is what it is. this site was awesome and when I stopped using it and getting pregnant is were I messed up. But I am here again to try and get this weight off me. I have been overweight since I was in 2nd grade. i never knew what a skinny body is on myself so you can just imagine how worn down my body is but I know I can always make it a little bit stronger if I put my mind to it. I would really like to get some new Sparkfriends with similar issues as I do. Seeing how others are working on getting themselves healthy is a good motivator for me. Well sorry so long but Hello! :)

�Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.�

Hi, just wanted to introduce myself. I too, have never been skinny. I was always the overweight kid in school and at 16 I weight 164. After 3 kids and 20 years I am up to 180ish. I just turned 38 in December and that along with the fact that I feel like crap, motivated me to do something about my weight. I lost 30 pounds a couple of years ago but then I got laid off from my job and I had a partial hysterectomy and I have put the weight back on. I can tell a difference too. I hope to get support from this group as well as give support to someone who might need it.

FUNNY! I make fun of my mom for telling me, "but you have such a pretty face" all of my life. I love that line.

I'm Pattie. I'm a 28-year-old police officer in Wisconsin. I have sons, a hubby, cats (one fat one thin...like my hubby and myself), and a funny looking dog. I am the smallest person in my family, and my BMI is OBESE. I've never been skinny. I was a juniors size 13 in middle school and that is the smallest I've ever been (unless we're counting prepubescent days). Because I'm kind of tall, my weight is sort of distrubted, so rather than having one problem area, I'm proportionately big all over. I would like to lose 60 pounds by December, for no good reason except I'd like to be healthy.

When life gives you lemons, make yourself a lemon drop...it has less calories the lemonade and will certainly make you feel better :)

This quote from my granny pretty much sums it all up:

"You could be a plus size model!"

Yeah. That's what I needed to hear at 17, dressed up for a NYE party. Fantastic.

But that's about it. I have been trying for YEARS to lose some of this weight, and I've succeeded by tiny bits a few times, but I always get frustrated at the plateau and quit :P

So yeah, I'm Jenn, and I'm new. I'm 28 now, and married, and headed to the Dominican Republic in November as a way to kick my butt into sticking with this.

Ginger, here. 28 yr old college student from East Texas. (Majoring in Criminal Justice).

I currently walk 2 miles a day (everyday except Sunday), climb bleachers, and go to a Nautilus class 2 days a week. I have an amazing boyfriend who walks with me, and a super-awesome Trainer who works my butt off. (too bad not literally)...

I am sitting at about 282.5, and wanting to be a size 18/20 by June. I want my birthday present to myself (December 1) to be a size 14 dress!

Looking forward to getting to know you all!

I'm gonna live forever if the good die young!

So today I joined this group. Never in my life have I been skinny.
I just purchased an elliptical which they set up today. I have wanted one for so long, now I just have to make myself use it daily.
I have 116 days until I leave for an all girls trip to Cancun and would like to be in a little better shape than I am now. (All the other girls are much smaller)
I need all the help I can get so if there is anyone out there that would like to be a buddy look me up.

Hi!

I've never been skinny nor do I want to be. I want to be healthy and at a healthy weight (about 80 lbs less than what I am now). In October, I reached my highest weight of 233 lbs and since then, I've lost 16 lbs and gone done several jean sizes. The scale was a serious wake-up call that I wasn't loving myself the way I should be and now, I'm determined more than ever to love myself right with eating clean and exercising 6 days a week.

I look forward to getting to know you and sharing parts of this journey together! emoticon

I rock. I roll. I cry. And I always get back up. I'm a fighter.

Hi I'm Jonet and I'm 21 years old. I have been bigger than most of my friends since elementary school. I'm officially at my biggest right now and it has been steadily going up each year. The trend for me is started to get old and I'm ready for a change.

Hi everyone!

My name is Katie and I am a 24 year old college student from Illinois. I used to be a SP member but it had been so long since I was last on here that I forgot my log-in info. So, I just decided to start fresh and get a new profile. I am currently at my heaviest weight ever. I am hoping to go from 250 down to around 155. That would still put my BMI a little over normal weight range, but I figure that I will reassess once I get to that point.

A large majority of my family is overweight and suffers from a vast array of health problems. My father had gastric bypass surgery and he ended up losing and keeping off around 260 pounds. I knew that it was time for me to pick up the pace when I noticed that my father who was once well over 500lbs is now close to my current size.

How cool is this team? I absolutely love the name! and the picture!

I'm new here, I'm from a small country in Central America called Guatemala, been overweight forever! and I do not wish to be skinny 'cause I like my curves (as Kim Kardashian would say :P ) BUT I will love to fit in "normal"-sized clothes and I would LOVE to use a dress and feel pretty on it... I would also really love to run a 10K marathon or even walk-run it and that's one of my main goals for which I really need to lose some weight.

I'm not married but have a wonderful boyfriend who loves me as I am right now and I am blessed with him and with a great family :)

I am a very happy woman who really enjoy eating and sometimes gets frustrated with the weight gain :P

Ivo!

Hi, everyone! My name is Michelle. I'm originally from Oklahoma, but now live with my wonderful husband, James, in Plymouth, Indiana. I have been overweight all my life, despite my mother's efforts. I was very active in High school and early college, which is probably why I maintained a steady overweight weight.. Now I am less than active and have an office job.
I turn 25 this Friday and recently found out I have high blood pressure. I have also been struggling with depression. It's time for a complete overhaul of my life and I'm off to a great start. I've lost 9 pounds! Almost 10% of my goal. I'm super excited that a co-worker recommended this site!

Good luck, Joeys Mama! I know you can do it. (:

I'm also an Oregonian. I'm Kat, and I haven't been skinny since 2nd grade! I was 186 in my senior year of high school--my highest ever--so I decided to do something about it. I got down to 160lbs, but at 5'1" that's still fat. I felt sexy, but stopped working out and worrying about what I ate (because my metabolism took care of it.)

For about a year this worked out fine, but then I started eating even MORE to comfort myself (I went through some sad times) and now I'm up to 193 at 21... a new highest ever.

I'm eager to get down to 120-ish (not sure of the final number, but it'll be somewhere near there I'm sure) and to stop wearing size 18s. :/

Hey ladies! I just weighed myself and i am 260.5 lbs. I am 26 and live in oregon. I have always been the fat girl since second grade. I remember actually being "skinny" in a size 14 in highschool and thats sad. I was at my highest ever of 280 when i found out I was pregnant. It was a bad pregnancy and my son was born 6 weeks early due to my choices I made from childhood to adult hood with food and not really working out on a regular basis. I feel horrible about it and I know its my fault BUT I have to move on and get my body ready for a second baby. But I promised myself that wouldnt happen until I lose 100lbs. I have to have a healthy pregnancy. So not only am I needing to do this formyself but for my future children and to show my son and future children how to be healthy and not be the fat mom. My husband is very supportive and loving and couldnt ask for anything else.
My brother passed way a year ago from a heartattack, he was the one we thought wouldnt have had that happen do, he was our marathon runner, the jock in highschool and the prom king and yadda yadda yadda. he was 50 something when he passed. So i am working on doing a half marathon here in Portland in oct 2011, running/walking as a way to celebrate his life he lives and to celebrate my new life i am GOING to live.

Hi, i have the same feelings as you do, I am new to this website and your was the first of mine to read. I have never been skinny but have tried many times and nothing seems to work. I want to change so bad but its really hard sometimes. I always felt that food controlled me not the other way around like its suppose to be. But this year is a new year and i want to make the best out of it. But its sometimes hard not having a good support system

My name is Melissa and, I too, have never been skinny. I was a chubby baby, a pleasantly plump child, a chubby teenager...and then I fell into flat out over-weight.

But I'm here to change all that. I'm currently looking for Spark Buddies to build-up my online support network. I have a small, but strong support where I'm at...but I can always use more.

Hi! Why didn't I see this team sooner?! I have NEVER even been 'normal' ... so 'skinny'? NEVER NEVER!

But this year, I realized how completely wasted the past 10 years of my life have been, and I want to change things around. Starting with my weight! I'm currently obese. Have to work off all the excess.

So, hiiii team! Wishing you all luck on your healthful journeys :) :) :) Hope we can keep each other motivated!

So many pounds to lose and so little time in the day to try! Does everyone feel this way?? Or is it just me? I joined here hoping I am not the only only that feels this way. My name is Samantha and I am 29 years old. I am trying to lose 100lbs by the end of this year. I am just over 1/4 of the way there. I swear this team was calling to me! Like many of you, I have never been thin. Most of my youth was spent being made fun of for my weight. In school (many many years ago), I was called "Spam Sam that big fat ham". That was then and this is now.
I am a busy mom by day and a career gal by night. My "ME" time is usually on the treadmill at the gym. (Sad isn't it) I am on Weight Watchers. I needed a place where I could come to celebrate my little milestones. My family, friends, and Co-workers don't really see the excitement in .4 or .2 of a pound like I do.
I read about Spark People in a magazine so I decided to check it out!

Hi everyone! I'm Annie, and I've been on SparkPeople off and on for 2 years. I am trying desperately to get myself back on track.

I just saw this team and realized it's perfect for me! I've been in the overweight category since I was three years old, and now I'm 27. I've lost weight, gained back, etc over and over again. But I want to be in the "normal" range so much!

Hey, My name is Natalie! I'm new to SP and so far I'm in love with this website! I joined this team because I need all the motivation I can get! I've always been the big girl in the group and I want to change that. I just want to feel good/comfortable in my own skin and know that losing weight will get me there. I have a long road ahead of me but I'm completely committed to myself this year!

Hi my name is Melissa and I'm on a mission to lose weight this year. My aspirations are set high at 100 lbs this year. Its a long way to go and will require lots of sweat and sacrifices but it will be worth it in the long run. I've already found I've shoved my hobby(photography) on the back burner when I had started a 365 day project. I may end up flubbing that up but my health is coming first this year.

I hit 300 for the first time at the end of Jan and it killed me. So I did what I know needs to be done. I get my behind up and exercise in the mornings. I started tracking and have been consistent with it which is great because its always such a struggle for me.

I've always been overweight since junior high school. Even in grade school I was the chubby one.

I should introduce myself. Hi, peeps. I go by Amai on here and my health/fitness blog that I started to not only keep me motivated but honest about my weight struggles. I tried a few times in 2010 but didn't have much success and a few setbacks (shin splints and injured hip) which led to gaining instead of losing but it's a new year and I'm ready to get to know myself as I struggle to get life figured out.

I have always been overweight. Even back in junior high and the start of high school when I was very active. Use to be in volleyball, basketball, track and softball yet never seemed to be "in shape".

Doesn't help that I'm 4'11.5" and the weight range is like 100-125 or something like that. While I may never reach that low of a weight, I would like to be healthier and maybe even get down to a size 12 in pants because even that would be awesome.

My name is Sandy, I been with spark since Oct 2009.So I am not new just new to the team.
I am 43 years old.I live in Apple Valley,Ca with my husband and our 6 kids.We have a house full of pets too
I swear I keep telling my husband and kids no more but they keep bring one home.We have three dogs,two cats,three birds
and one snake,he belong tto my husband.I been over weight most of my life and been on so many yoyo diets.But since I made a lifestyle change
it seem to be working this time around. I weight my heaviest of 280 and now I am at 194.WooHoo. Spark people have been very supportive and they gave me the motivation to keep going.
I join this team cause I wanted to have a better positive attitude and to keep losing the weight.
I workout 6 days a week with cardio/strength training.For at least an hour. hope to meet others just like me here.Well I wish you all the best on your journey...

Hi everybody!!!
I am new to Spark but not new to weight loss. I am 22 and have been struggling with my weight from about age 10. 2 years ago I lost 25 pounds, but then my youngest niece died and the weight flew back on. Last year I decided it was time for a change and lost 70 pounds. However, when you start at over 280 pounds, that mean I still have a long ways to go.
I am super excited to meet new people going through this same process!!!
2011 is my year to find my hidden skinny!!!

Hi all! My name is Tanya and I have also never been skinny. Well, maybe when I was 3 I was. I have been overweight (fat) my entire life. No more. This is my first time on SP. Last year I resolved to begin eating healthier and as a result of that have lost 2 sizes already. I am now recommitting this year to exercising more and losing the rest of the weight. I have taken the I am not weighing myself approach and using my clothing as a guideline. This is because through the multiple years of dieting I always get discouraged when the numbers don't add up to how I "feel" I have been doing. And since a year later, I am smaller than I was before, I am sticking with that. It is working. I am an attorney and work tons of hours, so the big goal for me is to exercise 5 days a week. At least 30 minutes a day. For the most part I have my eating under control (that whole emotional eating thing is a crazy habit to kick). I do have good and bad days, but I am trying to stay motivated and positive. We cannot change the past, but can control our present.

The power to change, the courage to do, the will and drive to be exceptional lies within me, and by leaving my fears, my doubts, and my excuses behind, I embrace all that lies within me.

Hi y'all I am Amanda! I have never been skinny, but I guess you already know that since I joined this team. Anyway thought I have never been skinny I have been active that is until moving to Texas 4 years ago. I have been on SP a few times now but here I am back to give it another try. I just want to take baby steps and not overwhelm myself like I have done in the past. My big struggles are... oh wait it is all a struggle for me, but I can only fix one thing at a time so here today I am not going to make good decisions.

Hey Everyone!

I kinda had a crazy childhood as an oil brat and my whole family suffered from that kind of lifestyle and used food as a thing that made us happier. NOT GOOD!

I'd always wondered if I was just a big person and then I saw pictures of both my mum and dad when they met each other. WHOA! My mum in a bikini looking like a supermodel?!?! NO way!

So yes, I can be lean and healthy. I just have to do the work!

I CAN make the right choices every day to stick to my goal plan!

I CAN'T change the past but I can try to mould the future!

I AM worth all this effort!

I AM NOT a quitter!

Hi! I'm Dani and my entire life I have used food to hide behind everything. Having spent my entire life being the "sassy and funny fat girl" is not working for me. So, I've decided to do something about it. Its gonna be hard, but my health is worth it.

I'm Jaylyn and I'm 24 years old and living in Minneapolis, MN. Every one in my family is "large" but I'm sick of using "genetics" as an excuse. My health is suffering and if I want to live a long, happy life I need to make a change. That's why I'm here.

Hi everyone,
My name is Jasmine, i'm 24 years old about to turn 25 next month. I can't recall a time in my life were I was a "normal" size, always been big and to shop in the plus size section or plus size store. I'm just at the point in my life were I'm tired of being big and wondering how the skinny life feels.

Have been on SparkPeople for a while but just found this team. I've been overweight at least since the fourth grade. I am so ready to try something new, like being skinny.

Hi everyone! I signed up a few days ago just now getting my hellos out! I'm 28 from ohio married with a 3 yr old daughter! I am sooooooo ready to get this weight off and be healthy. I wanna break free of this padded prison cell and fit into the world. Most of all I want to be healthy. I'm not really concerned about what the scale says along the way or what dress size I fit in so much. The most is the ability to live without pain and that feeling of wellbeing I know will come from the hard work. I want to be able to be active freely as I want! The hardest part of getting the weight off for me will be getting active because of back/joint problems but I'm going to give it a go and not give up! :D

Hi! I'm not new to Sparkpeople... I've been on this site for years and on Sparkteens for years before that, but I never lost a single pound (that I know of). I'm happy to say though, that recently things have been looking up! I joined this group because it's something I can relate to. I may have been thin-ish when I was a little kid, but really who can tell? I certainly don't have much memory of it. My goal is to get down to 63kg, and I don't know what it is but I feel like 2011 is going to be a great year!

Hey! I am Nicole and I am new on Spark people... I have a goal to lose 50lbs this year. I want to be able to do the things that I used to before I gained weight... I want to be a fabulous wife to my husband and I want to capture his attention when I walk by... I also want to be a healthy person, who can walk up a flight of stairs without gasping for breath; go for a jog on a clear, crisp morning; or go hiking in the woods with my hubby and doggies. I hope that I can kick this and keep it off for the first time in my life. :)
