Hi. I'm Stephanie. My family and I moved to East Tennessee from Colorado over a year ago for my husband's Air Guard job. I'm having a lot of fun hiking and running in new places. It is absolutely beautiful here.

Hi, my name is Diana and my husband and I just moved to East TN a little over a year ago from Ohio. We are glad we moved and wished we would have sooner. I have a daughter who lives in TN now too and a son who still lives in Ohio.

Hi, I'm Lana, I live in Kingsport tn. I'm a full time student on my way to be a paralegal. Just started the program and love it. Have not figured out of to work the site but learning something new everyday. I weigh 170 and trying to get back down to 120. Being a full time student leaves little time for exercising but finding way to work it in. Hope everyone has a great day.

Hello! I'm Eva and I'm from Medina, Tn just outside of Jackson. I'm a 33 year old SAHM with a 5 year old daughter in kindergarten. I've been in maintenance for 16 months and am at goal weight/pants size. I still use spark to keep me from veering off track. It's part of the mindset. Like minded people with similar goals helps me keep the weight off.

Hi everyone. I am new here to this team. I have been away from SP for quite sometime. I had forgotten my log in information, so I have started a new one. A new account for a new me.

My name is Jayme. I was born in California, and moved to West TN when I was 16. Here is where I met the love of my life. We have been married for 23 1/2 years. And yes, I'm very proud of that. emoticon I have 3 wonderful kids. They are ages 22, 20, and 17. I also have a grandson that is 6, and a granddaughter that is 9 months, and one on the way.

Hi Chelsea! I was born in Northern Cali, moved here at 8, moved Southern Oregon at 15, then finally back here again at 22. LoL I know what you mean about making life changes. I have a 9 year old son that I want to teach right and set a good example for. It can be done!!! Just start tracking what you normally eat and go from there. Then you can see what you are doing and where you need to tweak things. I am going to start making my own food and cooking mostly vegan because of my health goals. I started out at 272, 2 years ago. I am now down 53lbs. I need to lose 59 more.

Hello everyone. I am new here. I have lived in the Nashville area for over 11 years now. I am originally from Oregon. I am 34 and ready to change my life for good. I have a two year old daughter and I want to show her a mom that knows how to be balanced in her food decisions. I am not sure how I am going to do it, but here is my attempt. I have quite a bit of weight to lose. I am so confused on how to go about it correctly. I am tired of the fad diets. I want real, sustainable weight loss. Any advice you can give me besides eat veggies, drink water, and exercise...I will gladly listen to. Thank you for reading. :)

Hi all,

I am so glad to find your team. I live in East TN. Near Knoxville. I joined SP back in 2008 was only less than 10 pounds from my goal, but hubby had cancer, hospital food etc., then I had two surgeries...I used food as the crutch. So here I am the biggest I have ever been. But hubby is cancer free and we both need to get healthy so here is my journey.

Hi fellow TN spark people. I just moved to the state in June and trying to use this site on a daily basis to help with my weight loss so thought I would join this team.

I am originally from california. Enjoying it here besides the bug bites! I have been struggling with trying to get this weight off for 4 years on and off. I have been doing decently which means I haven't gained any weight but I am not loosing it. So I am hoping to start getting more serious.

Hello! I am excited to use Sparkpeople and even more excited to do it with fellow Tennesseans! emoticon I joined about a year ago and only used the site like one time but now I am ready to become fully involved. Any tips and info about using the site and losing weight is greatly appreciated. I hate to admit it but I have never blogged before emoticon So I will be looking around to see what it involves and hopefully get started with that.
I am looking to lose around 95-100 pounds and would love to hear what y'all have done to accomplish your goals. Feel free to friend me and we can swap advice, sob stories, and whatever else is on your mind!

welcome...i've been with SparkPeople a little over a month and have found them to be a wonderful tool and support. i'm still stumbling around on the web site but everyone is so helpful it dosen't take long to figure out what's going on. i think what helps me most is logging in what i eat each day and logging in when i exercise. when i actually see it on paper, it helps me get a better grip of where i'm going and what i need to do. good luck. ( in my opinion, it dosen't matter if you've had gastric bypass surgery, you still have to lose weight like the rest of us: burn more calories than you take in. SparkPeople is helping me do just that and i think you'll find they will be helpful to you too' ) emoticon

Hi my name is Mary. I live in DeKalb County. I had the gastric bypass surgery in 2009 and was 5 pounds away from my goal. Now I am 75 pounds away! emoticon I am hoping to get rid of this and get back to a good healthy weight. I started a diet yesterday and saw a friend post about spark page. I was on here before I had the surgery and because I had to eat so differently, I gave it up. I am so glad to see this page! When I was on here before I started a page like this one.

Hello! My name is Krista, and I've seen this intro format used by others, and I like it, so here goes!

1. Location: presently in Fairview, TN
2. Where i'm from: Everywhere! LOL Nebraska, Iowa, Michigan, Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, and now Tennessee!
3. Married: yes, going on 15 years now
4. Kids? 2 boys: Connor is 6 and Julian is 12.
5. Animals: 1 dog - Wulfgar (Great Pyrenees) 6 cats (I know, but we live on a farm and they earn their keep!)
6. Hobbies and Interests: Music (I teach piano, play the harp, and sing in 2 choirs), Sci-fi/Fantasy/Horror, video games, board games, role-playing games, computers... basically I am a huge geek.
7. How long have I been a member of SparkPeople: about 2 hours!
8. Anything else? I have celiac disease, so no gluten. emoticon I am allergic to shellfish and onions, and my youngest son has a severe peanut/tree nut allergy. We eat a lot of bland meat. I'm also at higher risk for developing diabetes and high blood pressure (thanks, Dad!).

My current weight is 176, and I'm hoping to get to 150 by Thanksgiving. I will revisit my goals then based on how I look and feel. I want my goals to be realistic and not so intimidating that I get overwhelmed, as this is my first time using a site or program of this type.

Feel free to friend me! I have no idea what I'm doing! LOL Here's hoping we all meet our goals! Good luck to everyone!

Hi! I'm Liz! I've lost weight before... and I can do it again!

My weight got out of hand, basically, after the honeymoon. I kept eating freely and didn't care. Well, now I do care...and I'm ready to fight! Hoping that maybe I can stay motivated through others on here. I would love an accountability partner if possible.

Holla Tennesseeans!!! :-)

P.S. I LOVE to blog! I've got a number of INTERESTING posts if y'all would like to check it out! :-)

Hi team. My name is Jennifer and this is my first adventure on Spark. I've been on the site for about a week and am starting to feel more familiar with all of the tools, but please feel free to add me as a friend while I continue to get more comfortable - and a special thanks to peppypatti for welcoming me to the site when I joined!

My ultimate goal is 175 or less, but my initial goal is 256. If I can get below 200, I will be rewarding myself with a return trip to Europe.

Slow and steady wins the race...

Hi Everyone! I'm Jenn, just not joining Spark for the first time. I am a busy single mom of 3 kids, I used to play roller derby but recently stepped back to focus on my career. I am still running. My focus is to be stronger, healthier, and eventually a little smaller. Almost 2 years ago I lost 50lbs. I have managed to keep it off but still have about 30lbs to go to be at my best and healthiest. 30lbs seems so achievable after losing the 50lbs, but divorce and life changes have kept me from doing so. I am here now though :)

Oh btw I'm in Hermitage, East of Nashville.

Hello everyone,
I'm Amanda. I'm a wife of 13 years, a stay at home mom of a 2 and a 5 year old and a college student. I have recently taken a moment to look at how unhappy I have become and am trying to make changes in my life to gain back some of the happiness that I once had. I'm currently training for the Run or Dye 5k that is going to be held in Knoxville and i'm super excited bout it!! I run 3miles 3 days a week and cycle 3 miles two days a week and i have been doing some light weight training 7 days a week. My husband thinks I have lost my mind but I just press forward to prove him wrong. LOL

i've been wandering around here for about an hour now...trying to figure out what to do and how to do it...boy, this sure is a big place with lots of great information and suggestions. i think it'll take a while for me to be able to navigate. please forgive me if i'm posting in the wrong spot...anyhow, i saw some introductions from some others and will basically follow their format.
1. Location: presently in Friendsville, Tennessee
2. Where i'm from: my father was in the Navy, so we moved every two years. we lived in Japan when i was 13 years old.
3. Married: yes
4. Kids? 2 step-sons and triplet grandchildren that are 4 years old now.
5. Animals: we have 7 cats. i know that seems like a lot but they come to my door (literally) and i just couldn't turn them away. we also have a chihuahua dog who thinks he's a cat
6. Hobbies and Interests: arts and crafts (especially rubber stamping and scrapbooking), oil painting (just now beginning)
7. How long have i been a member of SparkPeople: about 5 days so everything is still real new and almost overwhelming right now. i am, however, really enjoying logging in and tracking my calories in and out. i think its helping me control intake
8. Anything else? i'm 59 years old and recently needed to have a pacemeker/defibillator implanted to treat a fat, flabby heart. the doctor told me i needed to lose some weight and exercise more....so here i am. thank you, everyone, for your notes of encouragement. i am looking forward to an exciting and positive journey

the purpose of life is to give it away.

That's amazing what a small world it really is. My brother and sister in law currently live in Everett.

I'm new to dieting as a whole. Honestly new to exercising too...lol. So I have a lot to learn. I think for me it is all going to be about the mental mind games that I put myself through regarding food. I generally haven't eaten a lot of food....just the wrong kind...and sat around on my bottom. So....guess I will be reading a lot and trying to learn from other folks along the way.
