I have been "sparking" for sometime now and was glad to find JW's teams. Been reading some posts and checking out your spark pages. I was raised in the truth, 53 years old now, baptized when I was 12. I was never overweight until I hit menopause. Is anyone of you from Virginia. I currently live in Richmond but was born and raised in Charlottesville, Va. I am in the sign language congregation, as my husband and 32 year old daughter both are deaf.

Hi Kim, Wendy and the res of the JWs team!
Glad I discovered this team and happy to join in the fun.
I'm across the ocean from you, but it's good to know there are others facing similar challenges with similar goals on your side of the world!
Brought up in the truth, parents divorced and DF'ed, took a detour myself (rebelled), met a freckle-faced red-headed gentleman; both started studying (he didn't know what he'd agreed to, but thought it couldn't be so bad), married, baptised together, pioneered and stayed in the truth so far.
Besides spiritual goals, I'm happy to share physical (weight-related or rather health-related) goals with you.
Because we are not the sort to look back!

Hi everyone! My name is Brandi. I am 23. I am married and have a little girl. She is almost 6. I was baptized October 30, 2010!
I am hoping to lose the weight this time. I have stopped and started dieting a million times.
Good to meet you all!

If it is to be, it is up to me.

My name is Kim. I'm 43 and have been a JW all of my life (or as long as I can remember). Baptized in 1980 the same day as my sister and many friends in our Hall, including the man who is now my hubby. :) We go to the Fremont MI KH.

Overweight since having kids 20 some years ago, but always yo-yoing. Lately it is more up than down (with the scales). but I've been working on it for a couple of months now and I'm seeing some progress. So glad I found some fellow JW's on the Spark!

Happy to meet you all!

Hi my name is Candice. I'm 32 yrs old and weigh 271.6 lb. I'm a nurse at a convelesant hospital and one of my patients is a JW. She couldn't read so I began reading to her and I began to find out what JW's are all about. I have someone that comes in and does bible study with me. I'm still new to it but I am very impressed with how kind and patient every one is and how much everything comes out of the word. I look forward to meeting some of you as we improve Jehovah's temple together.

We are so happy to have you here with us, Ma. You'll find that we encourage each other in many way, spiritually and physically. Sometimes we help each other with spiritual goals too. You have a great attitude and I'm sure the sisters you study with really enjoy their time spent with you. Wish I could come on the study with them sometime, but California is a little out of the territory! emoticon I hope we can encourage you to "fight the fine fight of faith" while we fight the battle of the bulge together! (1 Tim 6:12)

Awesome that your daughter is doing so well!

Hi All - New to the Team. I hope I will fit in here. I am a JW student - studying. I luv most of what I am learning, but I do have trouble with some of it.
It is hard to see the light sometimes, when you have been in the dark for so long.

I am originally from MN and did a little studying there with the JW's, but when I retired and moved to SW FL, I went back to my old time religion and more study, but they weren't giving me the answers I wanted to hear and a lot of them seemed to be a mystery they didn't have answers for.

A super nice lady found me through a phone call - well a few phone calls. She is very patient with me and hasn't given up on me (yet) so I feel she has to be an angel from Jehovah's realm.
She also seen that my daughter was paid a visit by my request. My DD is doing better than myself. She is already going out in service and doing school. I am happy that she is doing these things. Me, I am dragging my feet. Not sure why.

I live in S Ft Myers, FL and go to the Gladiolous Congregation. We go to W Palm Beach for most conventions.

I have an umbrella cockatoo that loves to visit with the ladies when they come to teach, but he knows he has to be quiet during our study. He patiently waits till after ending Prayer b4 he starts his chatter with them. We did have a young lad at the lesson one time and Oliver did totally misbehaved trying to get his attention. Oliver is an awesome pet.

Anything else anyone wants to know, just feel free to ask. MA

My SW here is 209. I couldn't find a weigh in thread.

Hi, Marian! emoticon Nice to have you with us. We have another sister in NC, I think. DawnP3, but she's been busy a lot lately and we haven't heard from her much. Very sweet though.

I hope you enjoy the team and we can help you reach your goals! Stop by my page and say hello sometime and don't forget to join in on the threads when you can!

Hi All:

Just signing in to let you know a little about me. It is great to find the "Friends" any place, any time. My name is Marian I live in Raleigh NC, lived in the Bronx, NYC for 30 years then went to MN for two. Landed in Raleigh three years ago and wish I had come here a long time ago. I love it.

I love growing plants that Jehovah created, especially flowers and Raleigh is a nice place to do that.

Been in the truth for 27 years, and it is the only place to be.

Need to lose 25 lbs and haven't been very good at doing that, so bring on the Spark. If at first you don't succeed, try try again.

Thanks for listening.

Welcome Ashley! Good to have you on the team. NY is my old stomping ground. Was born in Astoria and raised in Englewood, NJ. My Dad's family (not in the truth) lives on Long Island. It's been probably 20 years since I've been there. I live in Kentucky now.

We look forward to getting to know you.

Hello to all my brothers and sisters, I'm so happy to have found this group!! I never thought that maybe there were be a group for Witnesses but here it is. emoticon
Well my name is Ashley I'm 25 (26 next month) and I'm from Long Island, NY. Not a big fan of NY I wish I was in GA but might as well make the best of it while I'm here. I'm very excited to be on this weightloss journey and I'm actually enjoying this new lifestyle. I know that it's not going to be that easy but I know it's the right thing to do. I look forward to this journey's outcome and am very excited to share this with all of you!! emoticon

Welcome Vincenzo, great to meet you. We are entering our winter months here in South Africa, so its healthy soups and hot hot hot meals from now on. I for one, am grateful for the weather change, I'm not one for extreme heat.

I will NOT run emotionally from compliments and hide in fat layers for protection.

Self-control is like a muscle; the more you use it, the stronger it becomes.

Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or play with it, just pee on it and walk away.

Hi, my name is Robin. I joined this team a while back, but I didn't really post messages or anything. Well I want to try this again. I have battled my weight all my life. But it has definately gotten harder the last few years. My weight has gone up and down for the last few years. I am now determined to change.

Thank you for your support.
Robin

Keep up the hard work,
Robin

Hi, My name is Vickie. I was baptized in 1998.
My Husband was baptized in 1991 and my daughter (maldonado_663) was baptized in November 1, 2009.

Our congregation was just consolidated and yesterday was our last meeting in our Kingdom Hall in East Prairie. 38 of our congregation is now assigned to the Sikeston Congregation, and the other 18 has been assigned to the Cairo Congregation. We had a Widening Out get together yesterday evening and we enjoyed our association as a congregation.
The attitudes of our brothers and sisters sure shows how much we love Jehovah because even though we will miss the ones going to Cairo, we obey lovingly because we know this is Jehovah's direction.

My sister (msaxon94) told me about this team. It is so nice that my sister and I live only 1 and 1/2 hours away. We love the fact that we have Jehovah in our lives and we enjoy sharing encouragement and association with one another. Even though she is my fleshly sister, it is so much nicer her being my spiritual sister as well.

My meetings are now going to be on Sunday and Tuesday. I am looking forward to meeting new brothers and sisters at our new congregation in Sikeston.

Another thing about me is I am Aux. Pioneering for the first time this month. Some may have already read my post on that. I am having such a wonderful time so far.

We have a deaf sister in my congregation so me and a few other sisters are taking an ASL class so we can speak with our sister and eventually interpret at the meetings.

It is such a privilege to be one of Jehovah's servants. I love Jehovah and would rather be no other place than among his people.

How nice, I could not ask for anything nicer than to see this webpage communications about Jehovah. I went to an English assembly for the first time since I went to Spanish congregation. I really needed to hear English instead of Spanish, so many brothers and sisters. Thanks beautyeyes
