Hello
I am new to the team. I am 27 going on 28 and a receptionist for a small company. I am not interested in anyone at work because most of them...are creepy emoticon
Anyhow, I have not had much luck with dating. My first boyfriend, I was dating him before I lost weight, and it was him who thought I should get the lapband. After dumping him I lost weight, by myself and without the lapband. Ironically he later wanted me back and he himself had gained weight...
So I guess I am really not trusting or interesting in dating so much since him...
I guess its just the meeting of new people though that is tough. I have done online and didn't like it. Either you got just friends people, people far away or so. And I come from a small area. I don't like going out to bars, I don't drink. I don't belong to a gym as I work 9 hours and have a long commute so instead I workout at home. So how does one meet people?
And I guess that guys notice me, or so people who are out with me say like so and so checked you out. But I guess maybe I don't notice them...you know what I mean? And it might not be that I am not interested in someone, its just I don't realize that he is checking me out instead of just being friendly....
Nice to meet you all!

I am 50, single and busy working on completing my Doctorate in Psychology. Next year I'll graduate and my life is getting ready to go into high gear. School has taken up almost all my life for the past 7 years and I am so ready to get back out in society! To be honest it would have been a disaster to date during the last couple years. I enjoy my autonomy, but I am feeling open to new friendships as the next year unfolds.

Greetings from Montana! My name is Shebri. I'm 45 and have been single for some time now. Hoping to meet new people who are in similar situations and can understand what this weight loss journey is really like. It's not easy, but well worth it in the end.

Hey everyone, I'm Kelsey. I'm 29, and have been single for the about 4 years. I've dated since then but nothing I'd really count as significant. Have moved a couple times and really I just don't have many people I'm close with. So yes I'd love to meet a guy, but more then that I'd love to meet friends.

Things can only get better from here

Hello. I'm a 43 year old recently divorced mom of 2 girls (26 & 21) as well as 3 granddaughters. Living alone is something really new and strange for me so I decided to use my time to get back into some sort of shape and lose some of this weight that I have been carrying around for years. I started about 3 months ago weighing in at 183lbs, and now I am down to 170. I have also been a sparkpeople member for quite some time but just used it off and on. I feel more committed now and I really hope I can do this for myself. Would be nice to meet some people to share encouragement.

I've crossed oceans of time to find thee.........................

Salutations from WA,

I've been joining & leaving so many teams to help make sure that I'm keeping myself focused & motivated that I've been forgetting to take the time to introduce myself. So, in case I've already done this; please forgive me.....I scrolled through and didn't see myself....so.....

My name is Ashley as you can clearly see I live in WA near Seattle; I am 37 years old will be 38 yrs old this August. My journey to a healthier me has not been off to a roaring start or shall I say loosing myself has been extremely slow.....nonetheless I'm taking steps every day to be more active, to push myself, create new goals, meet others along my path and looking to make friends along the way! I wish all of you on this team much success w/ your goals and pursuits and look forward to getting to know you also!

Namaste,
Ashley

My name is Shawna and this is my story:

When I was 14 I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder with hallucinations. Before that I was curvy. I've never been a stick figure & never will be and I'm fine with that. After being diagnosed, I was put on several different meds some of which weight gain is the side effect. Me, being the naive person I was, I kept thinking that I could still eat whatever I wanted and not gain weight. However, this was not the case :( I ended up ballooning up to 200 pounds. Ever since then, I have been battling my weight. I just turned 27 and have finally realized that I don't wanna be like my father. Anyway I know that this year will be the year for me!

Hello! I'm new to this team and my divorce is almost final. I have been going out by myself bc all my friends are married and/or have kids, so they don't go out. Any suggestions for talking to new people when I go out? Do I just walk up to strangers and start talking? I don't want to be forward, but since no one is approaching me, I need to try something else. I look good, but being single in my 30's is alot different than what I remember being single when I was in my 20's. Help!

Hi everyone, my name is Diana. I'm a 26-year-old graduate student living in Florida. I'm starting off at 208(.5--Spark People kindly rounded down!) and I'd like to lose about sixty pounds.

It's great to find a community for single Sparkers. I've been single for most of my life, including the past three years, and a big part of my motivation to lose weight is to feel more confident going on dates and talking to guys.

HI everyone, Im Rona 32 and from Philly, I joined Spark about 3 wks ago and lost 8lbs so far. I have a ways to go seeing as though I would like to drop 100 lbs, so we will see what happens. Nice to be around people who understand the struggle. I find that everyday is a fight, but every lb lost gets me that much closer to my goal!

HI Everyone,
I have been a spark member since 2006....but i have gone off on my own path for the past 2 years....and it didn't work for me. i just got fatter.

now 4 years later, i'm still trying to lose 70lbs.
i have 2 weddings coming up this summer, that if i could even just lose 20lbs for i'd be ecstatic.

by the way. my name is Karen,
I just bought my first home. so yes, i'm broke, and so i eat more. go figure. not sure where the money for chocolate seems to come from!!!!!

i am childless with no significant other at the moment. I live in Vancouver, Canada

I need to get back some motivation and start working out and being accountable to others....it's the only way that seems to work for me.

looking forward to losing this weight the happy and right way and keep it off for the rest of my life!!

good luck to everyone!!

karen

Hi Everyone! My name is Kate, I'm a 28 year old lawyer working in NYC. I'm new to sparkpeople and thought this group sounds like a good fit for me. I've been doing weight watchers since June 2008 and have lost 75+ pounds with them, but I decided I could use some additional information about my diet as I try to take off the last stubborn 15 pounds or so. I look forward to getting to know you!

Hey ya'll,

My name is Danielle and I'm 25 and from South Carolina, I've been single most of my adult years and I've fallen into that, "whatever makes you feel good" trap. My goal is to lose 95 lbs over the next year or so and hopefully learn to "feel good" without all the unhealthy eating habits. Happy to find another group :)

Hi Everyone! My name is Cheryl. Single yes, I have been for over 2 years now. In those 2 years I gained all the weight I lost (70 pounds)due to emotional eating... I must admit it gets lonely being single and I am at the point in my life where I would like to meet someone but know I am still not ready because of various reasons but mostly the weight I packed on... So here I am!!! emoticon

Hello, My name's Kris and I live in the Chico, CA area. A friend of mine has started to have some good results using this website and it inspired me to try it too. I am interested in meeting other people going through the same weight loss efforts I am. I also am interested in having some single people to talk to about it (in my group of friends, I seem to be the last one left not settling down). I look forward to sharing with all of you and learning from your unique perspectives!

Hey-lo,
So I know I cannot love another person fully until I can love myself. But I seem to keep going out there and looking for guys. So I thought I could perhaps join this group, perhaps talk to some guys or other girls going through this and maybe that would help some.

I joined this group because I'm kind of sick of looking for buddies and seeing thousands of intro's talking about a wedding dress or a husband or a fiancee. No offense. Not that it would offend anyone here I suppose. I'm not jaded.

Hi everyone! My name is Val, I'm 26 and live in the phoenix-metro area of AZ. I found spark people about a week or so ago although I had heard of it prior.

Anyway an engagement ended about 6 months ago (wow- has it really been that long?) and this is really the first time I've been single since I was 19. So, I'm having a lot of fun! Looking forward to getting to know you all!

Hi everyone. I'm Pamela from the Sacramento area. I'm 26 (almost 27, eep!) and am finishing a master's of law. I was glad to find a group that wasn't all about parents trying to figure out how to feed their kids healthy stuff or spouses trying to figure out how to get their DHs/DWs to eat good stuff/work out/etc.

I'm trying to lose weight I put on while waiting for my bar results and studying for my current finals, so I'm back to doing what I need to do. If anyone else is in the Sacramento area and needs a workout/weight loss/bs session buddy, let me know!

Hi I'm Salprith Kaur from Malaysia. I am single and 29. So far I have lost about 10 pounds and plan to loose 40 more by end of June. I am not a morning person and want to change that, I want to wake up in the morning and start my exercise and go to work fresh. I want to be able to eat healthy. My biggest problem is not drinking enough water. Hope that we can help each another by motivating each another to reach our goals. Have a great life ahead!

Hi Everybody! My name is Brynn and I am single...woo hoo! This is the perfect time to shed some pounds; ok, well, a bit more than "some". Ultimately I'd like to lose an additional 50lbs or so.

Some background: I work for the high-net-worth segment of a financial firm. Very challenging at times.

Anyway, I'm excited to join the group!

Hey all.

25, guy, Northern California. You might consider me to be around the Sacramento area (depending on how far you're willing to extend "around") Single, obviously. Want to go on some dates, which most likely explains why I'm here. I'll be blogging, feel free to tune in.

Hi everyone! Name's Isa, been on this site since January, but haven't been utilising it much. Joining teams is my way of saying "hey, let's do this" :)

I give myself odd pep talks, I verb my nouns, and I eat when I'm bored.

Hope this works! Really (kinda) excited!

Hi all-My name is Annie. I live in RI. Judging by the intros-I could be one of the oldest on this team! AM I?! lol! 54 years old born in 1954. YA think that I might be able to get it right this time? Single for many years-Married/Divorced;tried it.. but still open to finding a true male companion for the long run!
I have gone from my highest 210# down to current 182# slowly... For the longest time I was not motivated to exercise-with a slow thyroid, a goiter and medicine adjustments...now that I FINALLY am exercising -it is helping me with my progress both physically and mentally! Please feel free to check out my profile page- I will be happy to find a "buddy" too!

Believing that you are special and valuable is the first step to getting it right!

Hello. My name is Janelle and I'm a Single Sparker. It has been almost a month since my last relationship...

As for weightloss and relationships, I feel that it's way easier to meet someone with the same interests as me at the gym, rather than the bar!

Does anyone think being single has an affect on weight (positive or negative)?

Hey everyone. My name is Taressa I am a 28 yr. old from Texas. I have been a member of spark people for a long time but have never joined a group. I have not had much success on my own, so I could use a lot of support. Hope to meet a lot of new friends to help me along the way!!

hi,
I'm new here.
I'm in law school in NYC and throughout high school and college my weight has gone between 140 to 180. i'm now middle of the road, but want to get back to a better place. hoping that this can remind me that i actually like working out and that i have half a wardrobe full of great clothes, if i could only fit into them.

Hello everyone, my name is Rita and i'm 27 and reside in NYC. I slowly put on weight while I was in a three and a half year relationship which ended only a few months ago.

I am not comfortable being single, but most of all i'm not comfortable with my current weight. With my height, I'm considered slightly overweight. However with my family medical history, being overweight is not acceptable for me.

I am hoping to come across another meaningful relationship, but right now i'm taking care of myself.

Hi everyone. My name is Amy. I'll be 26 on Sunday. I'm from Montgomery, Alabama. I'm also very single. I've actually never been in an official relationship, and a lot of it has to do with me being self-conscious about my weight throughout my life. I have made a lot of big steps in the past four years--since my weight loss journey began for real--but I still have not met anyone that I can see myself having a relationship with or the ones I've liked have not liked me back. That's how it goes, right? lol

Hello! I am in my late forties and very single. I have joined to team to have something in common with single dieters. I feel, for me, it is harder to diet when there is no companion and no one to walk with, talk to, etc.....I would feel much more like seeking companionship if I was slimmer. I know that it would be easier to find someone too...which kind of burns my butt at times...lol

HI! I'm Julie. For the time being I have a job where I sit online all day. I'm 25 yr old in graduate school and though I'm fairly happy & confident in my body, it's very important my attitude stays this way. I'd love to lose a few pounds but its more about toning.. and as mentioned, maintaining a healthy attitude and lifestyle.

Hey everyone my name is Danny and I made a promise to myself Jan07' it was not a new year resolution it was a promise. To begin transforming myself into a healthier person I have made it this far I have had some ups and some downs but more downs than ups. When i started this I was at approximately 470lbs and as of 3/29/08 I am at 329. I was in a 4yr relationship that ended because, "I was getting to big" were her exact words. So now that I am #1 feeling better and #2 looking better I am looking to find someone that I can spend a portion of my life with.

"If it was easy everyone would be doing it"

Mini Goal 1:
350 lbs by Jan 08'
Met 1/29/08

Mini Goal 2:
300lbs by May 08'
Met 6/27/08

Mini Goal 3:
270lbs by Oct. 08'

Final Goal before Re-Evaluating:
240lbs Christmas 08'
