Hello to all the Done Girls!!

Valerie here, live in Cleveland Ohio, divorced several years ago. I have 3 adult sons, (2 are stepsons as FYI) I am 52 and starting my life over in the middle. My high weight was 360 and I am working to get back to a healthy weight.

I have been on and off spark people and find I do better with support and when I track my food.

I want my life back, and am taking it back, one day at a time.

"As long as I am abstinent today, my goal weight is what I weigh today...if I am abstinent today, my weight is exactly what God wants it to be today." pg 130 OA second edition. www.oa.org
What a blessing to do the work and leave the results to my Higher Power.
Blessings! Valerie

Hi everyone. I'm just coming back to Spark and the group after being gone for awhile. I have more determination this time round and I have kept with my plan and my workout. I'm looking forward to seeing how I do at weigh in and I'm not going to be down if I don't do well either. I'm in this for the long haul.

I'm not really new but I haven't been on for at least 3 years. I'm back! I'm doing everything I can to surround myself with healthy-minded activities, so of course I had to come back to the done girls! Good luck all!

Hello everyone! My name is Valerie. I am almost 43 years old. I have been sparking for almost for years. I lost 30 pounds originally. The yo yoed up & down for a while. Last year was an extremely challenging year for my family with my Hubby's cancer diagnosis. After surgery & radiation treatments he is now doing much better, thankfully. However I found myself at my highest weight ever, and it's time to change that. Enough is enough. Iam done. I have been "back" for about a month now and already seeing results on the scale! :)

Hello everyone. I'm not really new. I am returning. I have gotten my life back on track and got a stronger support group around me this time. So, this time I can reach my goals. I am a 42y/o mother of 2 boys(17&19). I love to hike, swim and walk on the tredmill and just zone out with my music. I need lots of support and people to hold me accountable. My official start date is Jan19th when classes start again but I figure I can start tracking food and mood now. I have a journal that I am writing everything down in. I am looking to all of your posts and reading about your personal stories. And supporting as many people as I can.

Hi everyone. I'm not new to spark people or this team but after a long hiatus I feel like a newbie. Since leaving spark people I have regained all the weight I had originally lost, fell off the workout wagon and generally just let everything I had achieved float away. So instead of just starting the new year getting back on track I'm going to end this one on a positive note. My first step was to come back here for the help and support that spark people offers.

Hi everyone! My name is Helen and I'm 36 years old. I have high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol. I'll be the first to admit I LOVE food. When I'm stressed I turn to food. When I'm sad I turn to food. When I'm mad I turn to food. Food has become sort of my best friend. In fact it is my best friend. It's time for me to find new friends to turn to when I'm stressed, sad, and mad. If you are in the same boat as me please don't hesitate to add me. I need all the help and support I can get. I promise to do the same for you.

Helen

Hi, all!
This is not my first time around the block...not on SP and not in this team.
But something I'm realizing is that I can't do it on my own - I need support and community. I need to be able to offer support, too, which helps me to stay motivated.
I'm only a few pounds away from my lifetime highest weight and I am absolutely SICK of feeling so SICK.

Hi everyone! SP has worked so well for me in the past, but the last couple years have been really hard for me. I'm at my highest weight ever. I started a new job and lived far away from all my friends and family, and I really wasn't happy. Now I'm living close to home again and loving grad school! And I'm ready for a change :) emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi, my name is Debra and I'm looking forward to being a member of the team. This looks like a great group, and I love the name! I'm 60 yrs old, was a nurse for 30 years. I had a heart attack a couple of years ago and 3 stents; have COPD, and arthritic changes in my knees; the right one may be a candidate for replacement but I'm doing physical therapy to try to put that off or at least make the rehab easier. I've been a member of SP for quite a while but fell off ALL my wagons, and it's time to recommit myself and be DONE with all this extra fat. I look forward to meeting all of you.

Hi everyone,
My name is Jody and i'm new here.
I've been on a lifelong struggle with chubby/overweight/obese and it has been an exhausting one. This year I was at my highest weight for a time, until...
I was recently acutely ill in hospital for 10 days and lost 25 pounds. Since i've been home i've lost another 11 - the loss in hospital helped me to kick start a healthier outlook again. I am slowly regaining strength and energy and have been walking my dogs 30 minutes most days the past 2.5 weeks.
I'm feeling very determined to stick to my healthier ways now so i've been on Spark for about 10 days and have been exploring groups that are active and supportive. I found your group tonight and it looks like a good one! Hope we can be supportive to each other on this journey. Peace to all.

My name is Donna and I am 20 years Sober. Sadly my food addiction & emotional eating has been a yo yo. I always knew I had a blank spot in my memory in my childhood and it finally cleared and I saw the child abuse from a friend & customer from my father's restaurant. I was in I believe 5th grade. So now a lot of behavior has been recognized It has been a very long time coming as I turned 66 in May. I have been on SP on and off for a few years and now I have made my commitment to stick. I still have my ups and downs, but I am going for it all. I want to get off all my medications and say good bye to my Being that fat girl. so I need to lose 100+ pounds.
Looking forward to being part of this group. Thank You

I'm coming back to Spark after about a 3 year absence (had a few false starts between now and then).

I am done being the fat girl. I was down to 198 last December (at my heaviest I was 308) but my marriage tanked (domestic abuse) and I was homeless over the summer as a result.

During those last few months before I was living on the street I packed on 50 pounds, and I've since lost 8 pounds of it now that I have a place to live again and I'm able to make healthier eating choices (95% of what food you can get when you're homeless is processed stuff loaded with high fructose corn syrup and white flour), but there's a lot of ground to cover still.

I want to get back to that sweet 198 again (I miss my clothes!) and then back to my overall goal of 140 after that.

Hello!

I joined this team a few weeks ago but I let my inner fat girl take over me again. I logged in for the first time in a while this morning and noticed a bunch of greetings from this team. It makes me happy that I found an active supportive group. I'm looking forward to sharing my weight loss journey with you all!

emoticon My name is Paula and I saw this group on member's page after reading her blogs. Looks like a active group. So I am excited to read other peoples post on here. I am half way to my goal now. I lost 50 pounds in a year. Then I had weight loss surgery called the sleeve. It makes my stomach the size of a banana. But since I had it done in June of this year I have lost another 35 pounds. I can still have a lot of support. It isn't as easy as you would think

emoticon Thanks for letting me join..
