Hello Beautiful, Black, Queens!

I'm not really new - I fell off the wagon as of Thanksgiving - I haven't weighed myself yet, but I'm going back to my weight loss group meeting tonight, and will know the damage. Anyway, I'm back, I'm black, I'm beautiful, and ready to get back into the swing of healthy living!

Hello Beautiful, Black, Queens! My name is Monica. I reside in Dallas. I have been overweight for majority of my life. In July 2009, I began my start to healthier living, but became pregnant again in August 2009 and everything about losing weight went out the door. I had my last baby in March 2010 and have said since then I was going to get back on track with trying to live and eat healthier. In September 2010, I began to get serious again about living healthier. I started exercising, but continued to eat all the wrong foods. Healthy meal choices have always been a struggle for me because I dislike cooking. Three days ago my friend introduced me to SparkPeople! I am very hopeful that I took full advantage of the site and become a healthier person. So far, I am addicted to the site and can't wait to log on at night to track my progress for the day. I am loving the Undie Challenge. I hope to meet other females in my position and we can inspire each other.

Hi ladies! I'm Loretta from New Jersey and I'm so excited to start with the new me in 2011. I know it's cliche', but it's how I feel. I lost 12 lbs for my wedding in 2009 and have since gained the 12 back plus an extra 20 :(

My goal is to get myself into a healthy BMI and eventually get to 140 lbs.

Hello BBQ's,
I am new to SP (and the team) and so far I like it! I'm looking for support for me and you. I can jump start my motivation but have hard time continuing it. If I can be of any help I will extend out any encouragment and praises!

Hi everyone,

My name is Jennifer McCray and I am 21 years old. I have been apart of sparkpeople for a while. I really haven't been participating but I really plan to in 2011. I really need to lose weight because it's causing me to have a lot of health issues such as high blood pressure. So I really need help and all the support I can get.

Hey everyone, My name is Natalia and I just joined SparkPeople about 30 minutes ago. I decided earlier this year that I needed to do something about my weight so I started a new diet. Well it was successful; I lost about 25 pounds, That however did not last. I started eating junk food again and I no longer have the motivation to do anything. I'm hoping that I can make a new start and change my life. Here's to new beginnings. emoticon

Hi, my name is Keokuk. I joined the team about a year ago, but I haven't participated. I've lost my motivation and I haven't worked out in months. I actually want to gain 10lbs, and it has been a struggle. I know that the only way for me to gain is to continue to workout and double my calorie intake, but I just don't have the motivation to do so! I need help & that extra self motivation!

Hi everyone, I'm Dee!

Though I'm not "new" to SP (never really participated, then forgot about it) my focus has been renewed. My first day was yesterday (12/21/10) and I'm more determined than ever to stay committed to my journey to a healthier lifestyle.

I'm looking forward to my first SP/BBQ Challenge and I'm Very glad to be a part of this Team!

Hello BBQ's I just joined this group and Sparkspeople today. I am excited to have a group of people to communicate with who are going through similar weight struggles just like me. I started out on Dec 1st with my own challenge to lose 20 pounds in the next 4 months. I am going to need all the help I can get. And don’t worry I will help you all along the way also. Support is a wonderful thing.

My friends call me Rita. I have not been on SP in a long time, but I continued to exercise and eat right. I just didn't stay current with my logging as I am attending college. Come to my SP page to see what I looked like in my wedding dress before I lost the weight. My profile picture is me in my wedding dress after I lost the weight. God is so good!!
