Hello all, new here and excited that there is a place that I can go and you know what Im talking about when I say that I am so done with being the fat girl. And the whole package that it includes. I have always been the "chunky" girl during childhood and that of course turned into the fat girl label at adulthood, lol amazing how that happens, lol anyway I am excited to be here and meet new people and have an amazing time learning new things together.

Welcome Faye! It's so awesome to have you on this board. I just joined 2 days ago, so you and I will be doing this together! We can do this one day at a time! I'm older than you but, your story sounds just like mine. I know what I need to do to lose weight, I just have trouble getting it done. I'm made the decision that now is the time to get it done.
I look forward to getting to know you and celebrating success!

Have a great day!

Hey Done girls.
My name is Faye, I'm 24 years old and I'm overweight by about 80 lbs or so. This is something that deeply bothers me because in May 2014, I'll be graduating from medical school and will be a fully fledged M.D. I feel a little ridiculous at times because I know what I need to do physically to lose the weight but I have a hard time overcoming my mental barriers. I've always been heavy my entire life and my emotional attachment to food can be a little scary, especially whenever I'm stressed. I think SP and the DONE girls will be a good resource during the hard times as well as a place to celebrate my successes with people who can truly empathize. I'm looking forward to committing myself to this process and seeing results.
I look forward to getting to know you gals throughout this journey!!
~Faye

Hi everone. I'm so happy to have found your team page. The name definitely describes me. I am so done being the fat girl. I have about 100 lbs to lose and feel like it's now or never. I am 43 years old, feel like I have missed out on so much being overweight. It's time to start living. I am going to work on setting up a sparkpage this weekend, and hope to start making some spark friends.
I will look forward to working with all of you!!

I'm just joining SparkPeople again after a bit of an absence and I'm using a new account so I don't have any buddies. (yet?) I've set up my profile and I'm enjoying getting back into the site. So, who am I?

I'm 35 years old, married with two teenage stepchildren and 3 spoiled cats. I'm currently a stay at home mom. I live in Western North Carolina. I have over 100 pounds to lose (at least 127, but hopefully a total of 177) and I'm just getting started. I love creative writing (yay nanowrimo is coming up!), digital photography, blogging, and fiber arts.

I'm working out how to eat appropriately. I am an emotional eater and that's my biggest hurdle right now. I'm also getting used to exercising regularly, I'm used to being very sedentary. Lots of time reading, writing, using the computer, watching TV. I want to get out and actually LIVE. I want to be active and healthy. I'm hoping I'm making a good start, and I'm not going to stop until I reach my goals!!

10/6/13 6:28 PHello all! I have been up and down with my weight loss journey for the last few years. I got serious about it in April of this year and started out at 282.8. As of today, I am happy to say that I am down to 237.4! I am very excited. I have been blessed with a very supportive man who has also been another reason I want to get healthy. He is in the air force and we talked about getting married in the next two years and I want to wow him in my dress :) I would ultimately like to get down to 150ish and my short term goal is to be under 200 by January. I don't work out in the gym. I do videos and activities outside. I would love some helpful hints on workouts though, specifically for the tricep area. Nice to be in the group!!!

Hello Everyone~

I am Angela, 45 single mother of two and would like to lose 50 pounds. I really hope to find some wonderful spark friends to help motivate, encourage and help to be accountable. I do feel unwanted and afraid of losing the love of my life due to my weight, he alwayed dated skinny chicks and I am far from that. Sorry about the rant, just a little depressed and scared. Thanks for listening.

Hi DONE girls,

My name is Kate. I have been on SparkPeople for quite some time (something like 3 years) and lost 40 pounds and have (over the last year or so) gained 30 of that back. I went from around 160 (at my lowest) and looking at myself in the mirror and for the first time thinking that I actually looked kind of thin to cropping myself out of vacation photos because I don't want to be memorialized at this weight.

I am SO DONE being the fat girl. I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone and looking for a great support system and know the DONE girls are the place to find that.

Hello everyone my name is Kendra. I am 24 years old and live in Northern Colorado. I have been on Sparkpeople for awhile and this is not my first time on here, but I am determined to lose the weight this time and get healthy and fit. My starting and highest weight was 235lbs. I am currently 202 and my ultimate weight goal is to be somewhere between 115-135lbs. I know I can do this and I'm very determined to do so. I think this is the perfect supportive team that I've been looking for. If anyone wants to add me feel free!!!

Hello Team! I am excited to be a member of a very active team. I sure do need the support and motivation. I am 56, a widow, mother of 3 daughters. I have always been overweight. I am so ready to be done, being the fat girl. I am currently on week 2 of my new lifestyle. I see your team is in the middle of a challenge. Even though, I would be coming in late, I would like to join in to keep myself motivated, if that would be ok?

If you don't want to keep starting over, don't give up in the first place.

I took a little time off from SP recently because I was just feeling overwhelmed with my weight issues. But I realized that I really need the interaction and support of SP friends and allies. So here I am. I'm at my highest weight ever and have now been diagnosed with pre diabetes. I'm no spring chicken (I'm 62) but I know that I can get off 10% of my weight and my initial goal is to get to Onederland before my next birthday (in June). I really struggle with my motivation but I'm hanging in there. I like the quote "If you're tired of starting over, quit giving up." I'm so tired of starting over. And I'm so done with being the fat girl.

Hi my name is Randi'Lynn I am 31 and have been doing this for about a week. I am weighing in tomorrow and sorta really excited about it. This week I have watched all my calories and I have walked at least 3 miles a day and on one day my husband and I walked 5 miles together. What brought me to this point is we have decided to start trying soon for our third and last child and I want to try to get as healthy as I can before I get pregnant. Honestly weight has been an issue all of my life. I have tried many times to lose but I get distracted or don't see the results and stop doing the program. I am honestly liking the way I feel in one week. I can't explain how energetic I feel and how I actually want to do things. I am actually craving water YES water not soda. I have been a soda drinker most of my life and I gave that up about two weeks ago when I got really sick with a UTI and decided it was not worth it at all. My husband and I have two kids a daughter McKayla she is 8 and a son Brayden who is 3 1/2 and just started pre-school. To add on to that my husband and I jsut recently got married on July 13th of this year. I am on here looking to change my lifestyle and looking for friends and advice along with support along the way. Please feel welcome to check out my page and add me

Hi! I'm Molly, and for as long as I can remember I have been the fat girl. So much so, that when I finally got close to my goal weight a few years ago, I met with some weird emotions in me and from my family and lady friends.
My mom began asking constantly if I was losing too much weight and worried about my health. This was around the time I was hitting 210. She weighs a scant 100 lbs when she's doing well, so I know her perception is askew, but really.
And I sure got a lot of snide and jealous comments from ladies I thought were my friends, and not because I was thinner than they were. They were still thinner than I was, but what would they do without that one fat friend to make them look good (is what I imagine they were thinking).
So one big problem I have is, people seem to EXPECT me to be the fat girl. I disappoint them if I am not, and that affects me. And THAT's why I must be done with being the fat girl.

Thank you, everybody in spark land for sharing your spark!
love and light,
Molly

emoticon Jessica! emoticon on your upcoming wedding. Don't worry about what you think others might think. You obviously have someone in your life that really loves you. Think about that when you go shopping, it will see you through. In the meantime, you can do it. If you want it, it will happen.

Taking a deep breath......

Hi all! My name is Jessica and I am totally done with being the fat girl. A little about me. I am 33 years old and am currently going to school to be a pharmacist. I am engaged and looking to be able to go wedding dress shopping without feeling ashamed. Overall, Im tired of being depressed and feeling like a loser when I should be celebrating my life. I really just hope I can stick with it and complete the weight loss goals I have set for myself.

Taking a deep breath......

So I am pretty new to Spark People and have been looking for a good group to join, you know something I felt like I fit into "not something the computer stuck me in" (no offense to the computer program intended /wink) but seriously I have been looking and when I seen the name of this group I was like LOOK ITS ME!!!!

So here I am!

A little about me, I am a 35 mother of 3 who recent has been through hell (can we say hell? here? /giggles) anyway long story short - I gained some weigh with each of my children, then my oldest sexually abused my baby and after I found out the roller-coaster ride that came had me barely getting out of bed and eating just to feel something other then pain. But, a year has past since I learned the truth and enough mopping around - I am DONE! Done crying over what happened when I can not changing it and DONE being unhealthy DONE being unhappy and DONE being the FAT GIRL!

There is a time when you just have to stand up and say enough is enough and well - that is what time it is for me. So here I am ladies - close to 300 lbs and ready to make a change!

Hope I didn't scary you all off, don't worry about what to say to me regarding my kids - I don't know what to say to "me" most days - I only posted such personal info to introduce myself and let you all know I am serious about wanting to make a change and I hope when I am looking at the cheesecake funny (and gaining 10 lbs from the drool, lol) you will all help me say no .. or at least yell at me if I sniff it too much! /giggles

I look forward to getting to know you all better!

Hi everyone! I am Angie and I joined last week. I have already received so many welcomes from members and I just wanted to say thank you for the kindness.

I've been a member on Spark for awhile and I enjoy the community feeling I get from all of the members. What made me join this group is the title. I know it may sound a little lame but when I came across it that is exactly how I was feeling. Darn it I am 'Done being the Fat Girl'. Done with being judged because of my size, done with just all the bull crap ...... just done.

It has taken awhile to get here but I like it. Starting to care about me a lot more than I did several days, months and years ago.

Anyway, thanks again everyone and now I'm off to see the wizard. emoticon

No matter how slow you go, you are still lapping everybody on the couch.

Hello,

I'm Char. I was actually on the team last year, but because of depression and other events I just quit. Then in May 2013, I was in a car accident. My car was totaled, and I broke my leg and wrist. My weight shot up to 401 lbs. I'm currently going through physical therapy to learn how to walk again. I've lost 21 lbs in 3 months, and I don't intend to stop any time soon.

I joined the team yesterday and got lots of welcomes on my page and via sparkmail, thanks! I've been actively working on being DONE for 125 days. I've been in a walking cast for almost three weeks for a heel problem, and it has slowed me down a bit. But, in some ways I think it's made me more committed. I can't wait to get back to my routine!
