emoticon PJIM424 and emoticon back to SparkPeople and the team...Nice to have you with us on the journey to a healthier lifestyle.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

I joined in 2008 and did really well. I lost 50 pounds and then life events caused me to stray. This is a great program and the support found here is the absolute best! So I'm back now, single, not smoking and heavier than when I first started. But I'm back. : )

No need to apologize for what you feel and think...I think most of us have been on so many diets and tried so many things that it's not difficult to understand you feelings. I think you will find this is process will not only change your mind but put you on the path you want to be on.

And it will keep better. If you hit a snag, or have questions, or just want to share -- we're here...you're not alone anymore! emoticon

Hi!

I have been looking mostly for a tool to track my workouts, as I want to do that more than anything and then stumbled across SP. So giving it a try, reserving judgement, because frankly, I don't think that there is a relationship between my weight, my diet and my exercise anymore based on looking back over the years and patterns etc. It feels so out of control that I have virtually given up on it.

Sorry for the negativity.

Hi, it seems like it takes most of us a little while to get used to this website becauase there is so much. Just wanted to introduce myself to my "class". I'll admit I haven't lost anything yet, but I have good intentions for this summer. I have two questions. 1) Which parts of the website seem most helpful 2)how to you keep from logging on for hours each day since there is so much to explore?

Hi All! Have been here since March 25, but spend most of my time with Grandmas on the Lose. Just wanted to say "HI". I've lost 9 pounds since March, which is not a lot, but I'm not in a hurry. It took me a while to get where I am and I want to take it off the same way. Gotta get healthy so I'm around for a lot of years to come! Good luck to you all!!

Trying to figure it all out, and hoping that along with my treatment I can get a hold of all of this. Also trying to completely change the way I was brought up, all the habits that have been instilled since I was very young, and tryin to raise my daughter with the right ones! Excited to meet some new people!

Hi everyone I was previously part of this team and them 3 of my teams went away, poof gone don't know, how or why ... but I aaaaammmmm back ... lol. Humor is part of my personality if I can laugh I can survive it.

I am a 52 yr. old Tx. born and raised wild child. I am however 18 forever. I have 2 living children and a total of 8 grandchildren. I am raising one granddauther as her mother (my youngest) passed away at the age of 20 about 1 1/2 after delivery of her child to undiagnoised lupus which began at the onset of the pregnancy.

I now live in CO. and will never move if its in my power. Love it here!

I am a published post, just completed my childrens book and am working on a novel. I mentor GS working on their GS Bronze, Gold, Silver awards. My Teresa just earned her Bronze and will start work this year on her Gold. I work full time, run two (soon to be 3) online websites where I sell my arts/crafts, and clothing line.

Yes, I stay busy but in doing so I don't have time to cheat on my eating, lol.

I look forward to making new relationships with everyone.

Have a wonderfully loving day all!

Hi,
I don't have a lot of time to do much more than check my diet, and try to find exercises to do. I was on the Veggian Diet team, but my Dr. told me that I have to go back to eating meats as I have anemia(and they can't find a medical reason for it). And I would rather eat meats than to have a transfusion which is my next step unless my diet, and iron pills and folic acid bring it back up. So now to start shopping for good cuts of quality meat to fix for me. LOL. But I wanted to come by and say hi, and hope that I can get my diet and exercise goals back on track now.
Brightest Blessings,
Jajlo emoticon

Hi there! I officially joined SP on March 29, but got serious in mid-april. I had originally opted for the mid-April SP class, but want to "commit" to March 29th being my actual starting point. So, hello to all of you! Have a great day!

I am just now getting around to doing any posting, finally figuring out how to get more sparkpoints and in the meantime finding some great recipes and information about health! I am a junk food junkie who is trying to find a way to put some real nutrition into my diet. Not easy as I one of the pickiest eaters you could imagine. But sparkpeople is giving me new ideas. Gonna try to make fruit smoothies this morining. Hate to eat fruit, hate yogurt but just love slushie drinks. Maybe this will be away to get some more good stuff in my diet and more protein too. That is one of the worst things for me not enough protein. I am even considering getting some of that protein shake stuff to add if I like it. Wish me luck, PLEASE, I'll need it!

HI everyone! This is my first time posting. I want to thank all of you for the awesome job you are doing to keep me motivated. Believe me I need it. I am discouraged today. I weighed myself and I have actually gained weight. :-( I don't understand it. I am actually having a hard time meeting my food intake goals, and I am doing exercises 6 times a week. I am NOT giving up though. My hard-headedness will prevail!! LOL! Thanks again everyone!

Hi I'm Patti! I joined SP about a month ago but just discovered the team today. A little about me. Single mother of 2 ages 22 & 20 and a grandmother of 1 1/2 yr old twin boys. I have no will power at all, which makes weight loss difficult for me. Was hospitalized in October and nearly died which opened my eyes to see that I needed to live and take care of myself better. The first 4 months out of hospital was fairly easy and had weight loss of 40 pounds but now it seems more difficult to continue to lose. Started walking everyday and drinking water.

I know what are my problem areas but not sure which of the SP exercises best suits my goals and mobility. My problem areas are my thighs, hips, abdomen and of course my big butt. LOL Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. My current weight is 235 and in October is was 277.

Hi! I joined the end of March and I'm new at posting. I'm hoping it will help me in my weight loss efforts! I haven't been doing very well since I joined, so I'm back on the road, trying to get focused. I do well starting out and then in just a few days, i'm back to eating things I shouldn't.I need to JUST DO IT!

Hi, I'm Jennie emoticon . I have been browsing around for a couple of weeks, just getting around to introducing myself. I have been happily married for 8 years. I have a wonderful husband who is happy with me just the way I am. However, I know I am not healthy and this makes my unhappy and I've decided to make a lifestyle change!!

Finally getting around to joining this group. My first few weeks with Sparks has been very helpful. My goal is more to stay healthy and develop better eating habits. Tracking how many servings of fruits and vegetables has been very beneficial to me!

I know what you mean about tracking making you more accountable. I actually now have a better knowledge of how much goes in and how much goes out. I use to think less went in and more went out, but was I surprised it was the opposite. Not any more though thanks to SP.

This is my first post. I joined on March 27, 2008, and frankly the weeks are starting to fly by so fast! I find this site absolutely amazing! Keeping myself regularly accountable has made all the difference in the world. Oh, yeah, and all the water, too, has made a vast difference: MUCH less hunger [a lot more peeing, though :)], and the body feels infinitely better.

I love the support from this group. I wish all the best on their own journeys.

Meet you at the top!

Hi. My name is Roseanne and am 29 years old. I just joined this team, although I've been on this site for a few weeks. It looks like I joined with a lot of good people here. I'm not here to lose weight, but to maintain it. I had no idea that this website could do so much. I'm enjoying it very much, especially it being FREE!!!

Hi, I am like a lot of you, I just got around to introducing myself. This is actually the second team I joined. As I use the tools I find that my greatest challenge is exercise. My husband and I have three children, my eldest has left the nest, the middle child will leave in less than six months, and my youngest is still in high school. I live a pretty sedentary life, but I do like to go hiking and I have a membership to our local gym. I really love using SP tools.

Hi! Now that I'm getting used to logging my cardio and nutrition, I thought I'd take some time and get familiar with the message boards. I'm excited (and, truth be told, a bit fearful!) about beginning this journey to a healthy lifestyle!

The SP Class of March 23-29, 2008 is going to be a rocket launching week into my new self. I'm going to be a little hungrier than I'm used to, I've used muscles that have been idle for a while, and I've stopped partaking of all those little hidden calories, in that bite of this, or taste of that. Today I figured out that I might be able to lose 20 pounds by September. There's an entire new wardrobe waiting for me in my closet, that's been untouched for years. Good luck to all of us, hope we're still all together on SP for a long while.
