Hi Everyone!

My name is Laura. I want to drop the 50 lbs. that I have been carrying around for the last couple of yrs. I want to get it done now. I'm so tired of wearing 1x pants. I want to fit into a med. or even a large. I'm not looking to be super skinny, just thinner and healthy.

Hello everyone! My name is Jennifer and I just happened upon this group, it seems it was built just for me! Because I am SOOOOO DONE! In so many ways, I am done being the fat girl! Done being walked all over, Done giving into everyone and everything, Done surpressing my emotions with food, Done being the go to girl for everything, Done being tired, Done being taken advantage of! Done!

Wow, that sounded negative! It really isnt it is a positive step in the right direction for me. Time for this girl to take control of her life!

Hello Everyone! I am DONE!! I started off at 250lbs and am down to 137lbs. I have two pounds left to go and can't wait to reach my goal.

I want to wish each and every one of you the best of luck on your weight loss journey. It is about lifestyle change and consistency. Its about learning to fall and having the strength to get back up again. This IS achievable and you CAN do this!!

Good luck!

Hi all!

I am a renewed Sparker (re: disappeared for a long time, gained back the weight, then realized what I had done to myself and returned to Sparkpeople!), and I am SO ready to be DONE being the fat girl. I've been hovering around Sparkpeople for a few weeks now, and I've seen DONE girls all over the place and they've inspired me, and now I'm ready to participate and maybe even inspire others.

So here's to being DONE!

Rededicated to being healthy FOR LIFE.

I read my description on your team information page. This must be where I belong. I'm a retired Realtor. Wondering how life continues after being a workaholic. Now is my time to get fit and healthy. I am really ambitious with this decision. I have the time, working on the motivation and finding the Spark pathway exciting.

Howdy! I'm Kelley, I'm 23, I'm here, and I'm done. I married to the military, or wait, is that a man in the military? Either way, I'm married, I have a 2 year old who will be 3 soon after Christmas. I'm striving to lose about 50 or so pounds. I've been a member of Spark for a while, but haven't really used it to it's full capacity. Anyway, I'm here, I'm fun, I laugh a lot. Oh, and my weight ticker is currently wrong, I wish I could say it's leaning in the heavier direction but alas that would be a lie and I'm told lying is bad.

Hi. I'm Paula bringing greetings from Central Florida. I've been on SparkPeople a few months now and was searching for a fun and motivating team. So here I am. I've joined all the DONE goals and believe I can work them. My initial goal is to loose 30 pounds but if I can loose 50 that would be ideal. I'm DONE!

Hello All

This team seems fun, so I decided to join. I am DONE hiding the rolls. I DONE people trying to be polite saying "You're not fat, you are just big bone" when they really mean "You are really BIG". LOL

Hello Ladies!

My name is Tessa321, and I'm DONE! I joined SP three weeks ago and it's been an adventure for the best! I see the difference in my food choices, emotional eating, and even my health issues. So, please help me to stay on this great course. Send me a friend request, so that I can stay connected. I don't want to lose the SPARK!

Hello! I'm pretty new to SparkPeople. It has been almost 2 weeks. I am 37 and have two beautiful little daughters ages 2 and 6. The older one told me I was fat a couple months ago, and it really stung. I want to teach them better eating habits than I was taught so they won't grow up in a cycle of dieting and take that on for themselves as adults.

I've heard this is the best team around.... emoticon

Hello all, my name is Tina. I'm 41 and live in PA. I joined SparkPeople a few days ago and looked around a bit but really havent had the time to do much with the site. With that being said, I just wanted to say THANKS to all the ones that have left welcoming messages on my page!! Wow!! It's amazing!! It's great too seeing how far some of you have come!! There's HOPE for me yet!! I have a LONG way to go, but I'm trying to not look at it as a negative thing, more of a positive thing! There seems to be a lot of enthusiasm and support here and thats what I need. I have been overweight MOST of my life and its always been a struggle. I was with Weight Watchers for almost a year and lost 35lbs, but in the past few months I've gained 1/2 of it back!! GRRRR!! So now I find myself here, trying yet again...maybe THIS time is MY time!!

Again, thanks for the welcomes!!

Have a BLESSED day all!

Hi all!
Thought I'd pop into this group and take advantage of your enthusiasm and support.

My name is Anna (I'm 37...) and I live on a farm. I also have a full time job and work 100% from my home office. I feel that this has actually allowed me to be quite successful at the weight loss, by allowing me to really focus on my eating plan. I have fewer distractions working from home, that's for sure!

The downfall is that the nearest gym is about 30 miles from me, so I need to find ways of increasing my activity here on the farm since it's not realistic for me to get to the gym on a regular (daily) basis. I've been walking (and today actually added a little jogging to my walk), and one of my 'rewards' when I reach a lower weight is a good home workout DVD.

I started following South Beach / Clean Eating way of eating in August of this year, and have been very successful. I've lost 47 pounds, and am so motivated to keep going!

Thanks for the additional support and motivation! emoticon

Hi everyone!!! I'm Tay I just wanted to say hello and let you all know that I joined this great group. I am fairly new to sparkpeople and managed to lose 13 pounds somehow a while ago before sparkpeople. I also gained almost all of it back, now I am done done DONE being 60 pounds overweight!!

My worth as a person is not diminished in any way
by my eating patterns.

I am finished blaming others, situations, and myself for the way
I eat. I will take action immediately to re-establish
control of my eating patterns.

I will take care of my body as a loving mother takes care of her
child. I love myself unconditionally.

i'm staci. 37-year-old yo-yo dieter trying to make a permanent change. my youngest child is over 2 years old. i don't think i can play this off as "baby weight" anymore. *sigh* time to take responsibility for my own fatness instead of blaming it on the baby. of course, i could still blame mcdonalds, dairy queen and pizza hut..... hmmmm.

maybe?? emoticon

Hi!
My name is Emily and I am SO done being the fat girl! I have been trying to lose weight forever it seems, I remember reading my moms Weight Watchers books when I was just 9 years old and trying to follow that then. After years of trying to lose weight I have never seemed able to lose more than 15 pounds, but here I am today, 100 pounds overweight, and I am going to lose this weight for good!

Hi everyone,
I've been on SparkPeople for a while, but am new to this group. I'm married, mom to two challenging boys, and a teacher (7th grade history.) I gained 30 lbs in 3 months the year I got married and started teaching, and I've been getting bigger ever since. I need to lose about 100 lbs. I do not want people to look at my stomach, and I don't want to see judgemental looks in people's eyes. I'm tired of my students talking about the obesity crisis in America, and I'm tired of being too tired to run and bike with my kids. I'm happy to have found this team and am ready to make some changes.

Hey my name is Tonya. I am definitely tired of being the fat girl. I have manage to keep 75 of the 100 pounds that I lost 10 years ago. It is a challenge but I have made up in my mind this is it. emoticon I feel empowered.

Hi
This is my 2nd time around on Spark. I sure hope I get to my goal this time. I wanna be Done! Last time I lost 11 pounds while working really hard 3-4 days of power walking 7 mi round trip. I gave up after only 11 pound weight loss for a months worth of work. RRRRRR it ticked me off.

I do not have a lot of patience, which is much of my problem. I want what I want and I want it LAST WEEK.

Hey

I am not new to SP but I am new to this team, so I'll introduce myself. I am Jamie from GA. I have struggled with weight issues my whole life but it has only been a real problem in my 20's. I like this site because I'm ready to say that I'm done with it too. Done with the FG mentality. I want my confidence back. I want my health back. I'm not going to let my digestive issues get in the way or hinder my weight loss.

Welcome Lisa!

I'm Michelle and I saw that my Spark friend Monica joined. The title of this group drew me in because it was one of the things I said when I embarked on this journey to lose weight. I am really tired of being the "pretty heavy one" the one with the "pretty face"..umm..there's more of me than that.

My goal is to get from my current weight 178 down to 25 lbs or where I feel comfortable. It could be less than that. I just know how I want to look and I know that I am done being the fat girl! I'm now the fit girl..fit at this weight and I will be fit at a lighter weight!

Hi, everyone. My name's Lisa. I'm 35, divorced, and a full-time student.

I was a very skinny kid, but I've never been fit. Then in my mid-twenties, I started on an anti-depressant and gained twenty pounds in a few months. Over the last ten years, that 20 pounds has ballooned to fifty because of my poor habits.

I've been skinny and I've been fat. Skinny is better. But skinny and HEALTHY would be best of all. I'm ready to stop being lazy, stop feeling ugly, and start taking charge of making my life what I want it to be.

My long-term goals are to lose 50 pounds by October '10, do a five-day protest march in May (66 miles from Bangor to Augusta, ME) and finally learn how to hang-glide when I reach my goal weight. I want my body to be comfortable and functional. Oh, and I want to be able to wear whatever I want and look great doing it. I AM DONE BEING THE FAT GIRL!

Hello everyone!! I am SO glad that I found this team!

My name is Beth. I'm 39, married and the mother of an 8 year old boy. I have felt like and been the fat girl all my life. I'm tired of always being looked down at by strangers and in that split second of a glance, seeing the judgement in their eyes.
I'm ready to make a change - permanent change, but know I need lots of support to do this and get through all the hurdles and temptations.
I can't wait to chat and get to know everyone!

If it's amazing, it won't be easy. If it's easy it won't be amazing. If it's worth it you won't give up. If you give up you're not worth it.

Hello Everyone,

My name is Tina and I'm a 39 year old married mother to one happy 9 year old boy.

I've always been stocky. I was graced with my father's genes. His nickname was Stump. Yeah, not a lanky bunch at the reunion. Anyhoo, I had a sister who managed to avoid such catastrophe, and therefore even though I may not have been "fat" I was always thought of that way, even referred to as the chubby one. Hello folks, younger one would have sufficed.

So after years of hearing that directly or indirectly I guess I rather believed it had to be so. I put on a little more weight each year until I actually did resemble that remark! Well not any more. I'm DONE being the fat girl!

Hi DONE girls! I'm SL and this is not my first time trying SP. Even with the amazing support and help of this group, I was not able to keep up with my diet on what I like to call "attempt #1." Well, here I go again on attempt #2! I am trying some different things this time around and I know that I can succeed. Even though I am changing parts of my diet, I definitely wanted one thing to be the same: I still need the help of all you amazing women. My goals are to lose 50 lbs by my 20th birthday and to be more open with my friends and family about my diet as to use their support. I can't wait to get involved with this group again! Check out my spark page if you'd like to get to know me. I can't wait to learn from all of you! And of course, I can't end without saying that I am DONE BEING THE FAT GIRL!

Hello! My name is Crystal and I am happy to have stumbled upon this group. I started My weight loss adventure August 28th of this year and found sparkpeople shortly after. Its a great place to be! I have always been overweight since about 1st grade and have always just accepted it and didn't think that it would ever be any different. As of my last weigh in I am 31 pounds lighter and hope to loose another 10 by my b-day. I'm tired of feeling like an ugly duckling compared to other women my age and even though I will never be Magazine cover beautiful I just want to be comfortable with who I am and be healthy. emoticon

Hi, everyone! I think the name of this groups sums it up. I love it! I have about 100 pounds to lose. I am done being fat. I have eaten and lazied my way into obesity over the past 8 years. And I am done with that, too. I am starting my journey to health and weight loss and glad I found you ladies. I have been eating well and exercising for going on about 2 weeks now. And I am actually enjoying it. Shocker?? Kind of. That is why I think this might really be it this time. All my other attempts seemed like torture and that is probably why I'd stick with it a week or even six and then give up.

Hello everyone. I'm Cheryl and I am a 30 year old stay at home mother of 5 children. And just like you all, I'M DONE BEING THE FAT GIRL!!! Last October I joined a gym, got a personal trainer and counted every single calorie I put in my mouth. I lost almost 30 pounds but then I had a lot of personal things going on and didn't keep up with the nutritional part of things. I continued to work out and mantained my weight for a long time but now I have gained most of that 30 pounds back. However, I've found new motivation now and I'm ready to be DONE!!! I'm so glad I found this group.

Good Morning everyone! I am almost 30 with two boys, a seven year old and a 1 1/2 year old. I had been dieting and pretending to work out for a while now and finally in late August when I wasn't really caring it hit me. I'm tired of this! I really should do this! So, that I did. I went and joined a local gym, started going three days a week and then started kickboxing at a local karate studio. Shortly there after starting working with a trainer at the gym.
At this point, I'm pumped! I'm ready to go! Of course in my 2 1/2 month change of lifestyle, I've already had two weeks of setbacks! LOL, they are bound to come, but I was so frustrated.
Well, ladies thank you all for the warm welcome wishes! What a great welcoming! I am so excited to complete this journey!

A fifth of the way down my journey!

Nothing taste as good as skinny looks (and feels)!

God won't give you more than you can handle!

Hi, my name is Jamie. I am married with a 2 year old daughter. I am soooo done being the fat girl. I just read INDYGIRL's page and watched her video (The link was in a SP email I got this week). She started and 460 pounds and is now down to 350 and she said one of the biggest factors is to make sure that you log ALL of your food even on days when you were "bad". Today I logged all of my foods and guess what...I'm within my limits. I am hoping that the motivation and support from this group will keep me going in the right direction.

One pound at a time. One glass of water at a time.

Hi all,
It took me a while to join this group but now I can say I'm truly DBTFG. I want to leave the 170's behind and never see them again. When I joined SP I was close to 180 (ok i actually saw it on the scale a couple times) and I was sick of feeling like I couldn't do things. I'm DONE and I'm going to stick to it this time. This group seems great and super supportive I look forward to it.
Kim
