My name is Avery, I am a 37 year old stay at home mom. I have been overweight for the last 15 years because of medical issues and meds I took back then. I am so done being fat and getting winded just going up a flight of stairs. I started back up with SP on July 1st and have lost 11 pounds. I want to loose at least 80 pounds, but 100 would bring me to the healthy him range. I am so glad I found this fun and active team. It can be hard to find active teams on here.

Hi Girls! I am also back after a long hiatus. I am excited to be a DoneGirl! I ordered some fun toys on amazon yesterday, a working scale (I don't currently have one), a nice pedometer, and a proper nose plug and swim cap so I can swim more efficiently. Its going to be like Christmas when I get everything! But in the mean time I am keeping up with my goals!

Hi There,

I have been a member of SP for years- off and on with being active. I weighed in at my heaviest around the 4th of July at 283. Something in me snapped. Enough. Over the past few weeks I have been changing my food choices and am slowly started to exercise. Today I finally decided to come back to SP. I really missed it here. I am SO excited to have found this group. I love it already...it will be so nice to get to *know* you all. emoticon

Hi, My name is Eileen and I AM tired of being the fat girl. I've been on Sparkpeople for quite a while now and have lost and gained weight so I know the program will work if I stick by it! I'm just lazy and unmotivated. It's easier to reach for some junk and just sit around. I know I need to get up and move and eat better. That said I decided it was time to get serious now! I saw this team on other members blogs, but never thought of joining. I'm actually kind of disillusioned with teams. The two I belong to are both on the quiet side lately. When I saw that someone had posted to all the thread this month I decided it was time to give it a try. Maybe seeing other peoples success stories will get me on the move too!
I hope to get to know others on the team and be able to post some success. Right now I think I weigh about 195 pounds and would like to get down to 160. I know I can do this!! Hope someone will boot me in the butt now and then ; ) See you out there!

Hello, I just joined up I think yesterday......I like the attitude of this group. I have already lost 60 lbs. and gained back 10 so am at 50 pounds lost. Don't want to gain back any more....so thought I would join. I belong to other great groups too on Sparkpeople. If I can lose just 50 more pounds I will be most grateful!

Hi, I was a DONE girl back in 2010 & 2011. After having my 4th child (and last) I completely let myself go. I have made a comeback and now I have been on SP for 35 days. I am DONE with 21lbs and several inches.

Hello everyone! My name is Christi, I am from Illinois. I lost 60lbs with Sparkpeople about 8 years ago and it has slowly crept back on. It started coming back while in nursing school. I am now in management and pretty sedentary. I also have not been watching my diet like I did in the past. Soooooo I am back and ready to get healthy and drop these pounds. :)

Hello! Hoping to find a team and team members who are active on SP. I was doing well and now am in a slump! I am a slave to the scale and am trying to break the hold it has on me.

Hope I get to know you and cheer one another on.

NEVER. GIVE. UP.
I CAN DO IT! I MUST!

Hello DONE GIRLS! I've been away from SP for quite a while. I was focusing on myfitnesspal for my tracking because my husband was using it, and I could transfer meals over to him. He's lost over 60 pounds, and I've been basically maintaining, and fell away from even doing that.. I'm still 60 pounds down from my highest weight (2010), but I'm ready to lose the rest! Have about 100 to go.

Go team!

So, I'm attempting to return to my start that went horribly wrong (and I even gained more weight in the process). Maybe I'll blog about it, but it's not a fun little story. On the bright side, I'm back to SP, which is exactly where I need to be.

Hello my girls, I am back. I am at my heaviest ever, my health as at its worst medically ever. BUT I know if I come back here SP and my DONE girls can help me get it done

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance. Remember Dance like no one is watching!!

Hi everyone - looks like I'm the newest to the group!

I joined SP back in 2007 or 2008, been bouncing on and off the site for years. Now I'm back with a new account, and more weight to lose than ever!
I have 100+ pounds to lose, and it seems that no matter what, glaciers move faster than I lose weight!

But I have to stick with it for the long haul. I have an amazing 2.5 year old daughter who is the love of my life, and my awesome hubby who are my supports at home.

A few years ago I did great on this site, and was almost under 200 pounds for the first time in nearly 10 years - Hubby and I were having fun, going on adventures, we ran the Warrior Dash (5K obstacle course and mud run), I danced weekly and even in a few competitions, but then life got in the way - school, jobs, house, pregnancy, a new baby.....it's been a crazy few years! But my health (physical and mental) have suffered.

There's almost no pictures of me with my daughter. I'm too embarrassed to see them, so when she's older, she won't see any pictures of her and I for her first few years.
She won't know that it was Mommy that was at the beach with her, or I was the one jumping off the dock at the lake, or camping with her, or going on this adventure or doing that activity with her, because I'm too ashamed of myself to let anyone take pictures of us doing these fun things together!

So, I'm done - done hiding, and done being ashamed, and hoping to make some big changes!

Hi. I'm Bijou and my husband and I are owned by two naughty dogs. I first joined Spark People back in 2008 and have been a member off and on since then. I fully understand how everything on Spark People works, thanks. I'm here looking for commiseration, motivation and encouragement.

In a little more than 10 months, my husband and I are planning on making a move from one corner of the country to the other. When I show up in my new town, I want to be a new, improved version of myself. I'm all about taking chances and diving in head first.

Hello, my name is Theresa and I am new to this group. Have been on SP for about 6 weeks. I have lost 12 pounds but need to loose much more. I have 3 granddaughter's and 2 grandsons. I also have a husband of 34 years and we have 4 sons. I work full time and try to see the grands at least once a week. I have a very hard time putting myself first. And that is so important in this journey. Any words of encourage are much appreciated and I would love to do the same for you. Any suggestions are very welcome also.

I'm dawn. my middle name is stress this month. I have a 19 year old daughter who was born with multiple disabilities. turned 16, she started having issues with psychosis, anxiety, and depression. and in the last month, literally, oh joy, we have found out she has brain lesion and something called insullinemia (not sure if spelled right). her body makes too much insulin. we and my mom got an apartment together in November when I left my abusive boyfriend of 14 years. I work as a substitute in a preschool program, so if I can't work because of my daughter I don't. that's what I've done since she was 3 years old. lost 50 pounds or so but still need to lose quite a few more so joined SPARK. sick of feeling fat. I know that sounds horrible, but that is the way I feel. I don't want to be the fat girl any more. I am done. who knew spark had a group? LOL
there's me and my family in a nutshell

You can talk to me anytime you want... too...

I'll be glad to help motivate you... It's Super Fun for me doing that...



Don't Look Back... Your not going that way anymore... (Go Forward)

Worrying is not worth it... It's like walking around with an umbrella and waiting for it to rain...

If you keep good food around in your fridge... you will eat good food...

I Don't count my sit-ups... I only start counting them when it starts hurting... Because those are the only ones that count...

Go with the Serving Size recommended on the nutrition label...

Hello Everyone...

I'm the new girl in here....

I'm finding it very hard with finding people that are actually alive on this site...

Not coming so easy for me...

so I came into this group in hopes to change that... lol

I'm from the middle of the USA... *Kansas*

I have 27 Wisdom Years in meee...

I love sending motivation comments on peoples pages.....
also I send gift goodies... when I come up with something for one...

Don't Look Back... Your not going that way anymore... (Go Forward)

Worrying is not worth it... It's like walking around with an umbrella and waiting for it to rain...

If you keep good food around in your fridge... you will eat good food...

I Don't count my sit-ups... I only start counting them when it starts hurting... Because those are the only ones that count...

Go with the Serving Size recommended on the nutrition label...

Welcome! I like the way you put your "mudder" goal into your name. What a great reminder.

Newbie checking in! Look out...it's a novel! emoticon

I'm 43 and a mom to 3 SUPER kiddos (26, 23 & 8). I also have one adorable grandson who's almost 3. I've struggled with my weight since my oldest son was born in 1989. I've also had my battles with sickness as I have Asthma and take steroids way too often. Through it all, and even being overweight (currently about 60 lbs but as much as 100 lbs two winters ago), I've been a runner. I'm so slow!! But...I'm in for the distance not the speed.

With all that being said...I recently discovered something called the Tough Mudder. In our area (mountainous Vermont) it's about 11 miles (mostly uphill) and filled with crazy obstacles. They travel all over the world doing these events and my Husband recently worked one. Since then he has challenged me to do it with him when it returns this time next year. It's not a race. It's a challenge to push yourself. It's geared towards team participation and no Mudder gets left behind. My two adult sons are joining us and we plan to be an awesome team!

I've got a ways to go, but I really want to do this. It looks like so much fun! I'd also like to do a half marathon and eventually an entire marathon. You gotta have goals! I've done a 5k and a 10k previously, but since then, I've gotten sick (again) and I'm currently running a bit more than 2 miles a day.

I've been on SP before and did wonderfully. I met so many caring and supportive people too! Life happened and I drifted away. I've been on lots of sites, but I've never found the level of support and encouragement that I found here. So...I'm back and ready to do this!

I look forward to meeting you all and reaching lots of goals together!

Hello, all! My name is Bee and I am 28. I am a theatre student in Texas, graduating class of 2016. After trying SparkPeople and losing interest and then trying by myself and failing miserably I finally decided that I am worth all the effort it takes to eat right and work out. I am worth skipping big fast food binges and laying in bed all day feeling sorry for myself. I want to finish my college career strong and healthy, ready for what awaits me on the other side (grad school). Please feel free to add me as a friend, I am always looking for new fitness buddies to share inspiration and encouragement with!

If you work really hard, and you're kind, amazing things will happen.- Conan O'Brien

I'm Tracey, 39 and ready to be "ready for anything" which means I need to lose weight . I don't feel like I'm "ready for anything" because of my weight. I know that bad health is just a matter of time, how I've avoided it this long, I don't know! So I'm here. To lose the weight. And I need help!

Hi, all!

I'm SH and I'm 35. I feel like I've been overweight my entire life, but I was recently looking at pictures of myself as a kid and thought: "Wow, that was ... NOT overweight." (Big boned, yeah, but not overweight or flabby). I'd say I gained the most weight during high school and college and didn't slow down after that.

At one point, I was up around 300 lbs. I lost 100 in the WORST WAY POSSIBLE (Atkins/starvation diets, pills, etc.) and (shocker!!!) re-gained about 75 lbs. Sigh. Now I'm at 54lbs overweight and I'm using SP and the things I'm learning here to lose that 54lbs in a healthy way so that I can sustain the loss.

I am Stephani and 62 years old. I have been heavy since high school with in between loses but not for long. I have 5 children and 11 grandchildren. I guess I need more support as I can not seem to get back to caring enough to be healthy. Knee surgery has slowed me down and because the last one was not to successful, I have to be cautious in my activity, over doing sets me back for weeks. any way I really am tired of being the fat girl and being judged less than for my size.
