:Hello Team Members.

My name is Jo Ann (or Jo). I am from a small town in Texas about 100 miles from Houston.
I want to be a part of the positive blogging so I can help myself and others who read my blogs,
I am taking a break from the Challenges. Last season I was on the STAR team and had a blast meeting the people and working on the challenges. I plan to go back in the spring. I love music (piano) and have just taken the job of Music Director at my church. At 81 years, I am working hard to fulfill all the duties and others that come my way.

Hello, My name is Denise and I am from Kansas. I found this group by way of the Premium coaching. Even though I find most of SparkPeople to be fairly positive, I am excited to be part of a group of positive minded people. One of my favorite things is to get up fairly early so that I can have my coffee on the patio while listening to the birds, admiring my flower garden, and checking in with SparkPeople. Have a great day! emoticon

Hello, My name is Kathy and I am from Boulder, CO. Lately I have been going through some rocky waters, lot of negativity and today I made up my mind to find a group to help me get out and away from all the negativity I am around.

I admit, I am not crazy about blogging, but I am going to reach out, because I know I can do it. I am excited to meet new people. I'm stepping out of my comfort zone (which I also did, as I became a team leader for cross stitching group). emoticon

The name of this group "Positive Bloggers" is just the medicine I need and I can't wait to get to know some of you.

Hello everyone,

New member here looking for blogging inspiration and maybe some occasional support. I'm a Virgo with Libra ascendant so perfectionist/indecisive which can be a challenging combination. I am the tortoise to my beloved Aries husband's hare emoticon

I'm nearly 62, live in south west UK, married for nearly 40 years, we have two tourism-related businesses because we live in a fabulous place. We have a son who is nearly 34 (Asperger) and a daughter who will be 32 in the autumn (autistic with epilepsy and learning disabilities). Both offspring live away from home.

I was formally diagnosed with diabetes about five years ago but currently down to pre-diabetic levels, no drugs just diet and exercise controlled. I also have low thyroid and high cholesterol but currently resisting GPs efforts to get me on medications. Taking a holistic viewpoint, I have virtually no symptoms/side effects of low thyroid and taking meds unnecessarily doesn't appeal to me.

After my diabetes diagnosis, I signed up for an online Low Carb diet program and lost more than three stones, dropping from thirteen and a quarter stone to ten stone. I walked briskly for half an hour twice a day, even went to exercise classes/gym (gasp!) and was pretty good at keeping to my low carb diet. But now I've gone back up to eleven and a quarter stone and my diet is more relaxed. At only five feet tall, I certainly feel those extra pounds!

I got a Fitbit Charge 2 for my birthday last autumn and it has been very motivating! I try to walk every day, 30 minutes if possible but 15 is better than nothing. Hubby is an excellent chef but tends to like carbs (cake, chips etc) so sometimes it's not easy to decline some elements of his meals without offending him. He swears I could live on salad and soup every day ... and he's probably not wrong. But we both enjoy food and I try to make sensible choices.

I have always enjoyed writing (there's a surprise given the length of this post!) and have been thinking about a blog here on Sparkpeople. So I'm hoping to become a Positive Blogger emoticon

Hi Libilou, FREE-JC and Michele,

Nice to see you! Welcome! I'm Kathy aka Mermaid... (Long story but I love Mermaids - They make me smile.)

Sorry it has taken us longer to see some new names on here...

This is a very positive team for sure. On the chit chat lounge we keep in touch with each other and enjoy hearing about each other's day. Please feel free to stop in and share so we can get to know you.
When I first started here, I had to teach myself to be more positive. It was hard with so much negatives in the day. But ... Then I was challenged to post 5 positive in MY day no matter how small they were.
ie The sun is shining today is a great one. Or depending where you are ie It's not as cold as yesterday. hehehe See it's easy.
But then changing the negatives to positive was a big challenge. So that is what this team does for me... It reminds me to think positive and to change the negatives to positives.

I hope you will take the challenge . We all use to include them with our daily blog. But then some of us have been busy mermaids and gotten away from posting a blog. lol Silly too. That's me.

Enjoy your day.

Good Morning and Welcome to this wonderful team.

Kathy sorry no one check in to greet you sooner. Our team leader was without her computer for almost a month. So welcome. Hope you are liking our positive team.

Carol - Welcome to you as well. Glad you joined us on the Chit chat...

We meet daily in the Chit chat and share our daily stuff or whatever you want. That way we get to know you more each day. We all have them negatives that try to sneak into our days one way or the other. If you count your positives/blessings it will push them negatives away. There is no room for both. So remember to list your positives each day. When I'm having a really bad day I will list 5 positives right on the chit chat page... Or you can blog them. It really helps...

Have a blessed Day...

Oh and I'm Kathy too. hehehe

Hello: I found this team in the Spark Coach site. If there's one thing I need to do, it's to speak to myself and about myself as if I were speaking to my best friend. I need a lot of practice. The family I grew up in was constantly teasing each other, and we'd say things like "hey, bonehead, what did you do with that tool", and the like. So I'm usually talking to myself that way, like "doofus, why did you eat that donut?" In my family, these kinds of things were said good-naturedly, so I never really considered how thinking like this and speaking like this might influence me over all of the years of my life. But you are what you think, so here goes!

"If you wanna be somebody else, if you're tired of fightin' battles with yourself, if you wanna be somebody else, Change Your Mind." Sister Hazel, from "The Fortress" CD.

I am stronger than the food.

I am not that person any more.

Hello, my name is Latisha and I just joined this team because I am determined to make it into the 190's! Honestly, I feel like I just keep losing the same 5 to 10 pounds. I want to lose this weight for good and see 190! With your help, I know I can do it. I have been writing a lot in my journal lately and then I started my own blog called Renew Inspiration. Writing gives me a positive outlet instead of eating all the time. www.renewinspiration.com

I'm new to blogging. Big time. I ramble. I would love to be on your team. I find that if I start the day off, with a bunch of positive words to myself, I tend to continue those words, out there.
Have a great day.

Stronger, more powerful, I got this.

Hi! What a wonderful goal for a group. I love to write, explore the world around me, Have a few quirky interests, and am determined to reach my weight loss goal. Keeping it all positive Is a great plan and reminder.

Im a Hoosier by relocation, age is in my early 50s, marriage is approaching 30 years. We have 2 dogs, no kids. I think photos of magnified bugs are really cool, love to bicycle, and appreciate a well made quilt. I love to set crazy goals and chase them down. And this has brought me to some fantastic destinations around the world. After finding myself on location at my #1 destination in the world in 2015, in a world of pure bliss, the stars aligned again. I then took a leave of absence from work and bicycled across the USA for the 2nd time. I was 120+ lbs overweight at the start, but pedaled every inch of the way. A few months later, I found myself singing out of tune happily in the rain with a small group of cyclists I met just months ago, and cycled across England. So how do you follow this up? It was a question I was often asked. I really was good. I have an endless list of places to go, things to do etc...but no one thing floated to the top to take the #1 spot on my bucket list as the 4th number 1 lifetime goal id pursue.

A few weeks ago in March 2018, I finally decided what my new challenge would be. Its a stretch, given my medical history, current fitness, prior experience at altitude, reaction to heights, and more. But I can and will engage in life as a dreamchaser. So my new goal is to hike to base camp at Everest before I turn 60. Ive put together a series of vision boards to help transform my subconscious and to help convert this dream into a reality. I already see myself standing there in awe, so I believe it will happen. And this belief is all we need to convert our dreams into reality.

I'm 70 yrs old and will be 71 in November. I'm 5'9" and used to be 5'11. My name is Carolyn but I also use Injoy:) My Hubby's name is Steve. I'm medically retired since 1995. I worked as a nurse, as an accountant and other miscellaneous jobs from working in a perceptual development lab, at a museum for an archeolgist and as a secretary. I'm a mother of two adults (ages 48 and 43) and have three grandchildren, all of them over eighteen. I'm originally from Louisiana; moved to East Texas and have lived in Illinois, Long Island New York, Nevada, Oregon, Washington and retired to Arizona. I'm only survivor of four children. Both my parents are deceased.

My husband and I used to travel periodically to attend car shows and have a restored Classic 1956 Ford F100. I don't go outdoors during the daytime during the summer because of the extreme heat (105 to 117 degrees) but the nights in Arizona are beautiful. Winter days are in the 70's and I love seeing the sunsets from my front porch nightly. I spend many of my summer evenings in our pool and feel blessed to have it!

I have a gorgeous French mastiff/boxer mix female dog (Miss Jasmine) who at 115 pounds still thinks she's a lap puppy. She'll be three years old in May. She is half asleep in this photo.


I enjoy card crafting, adult coloring, reading and writing book reviews. I LOVE my life! I'm grateful to be alive. I adore my wonderful (longsuffering) husband of 40 years and love my family. I miss my daughter and grandchildren since they live in Washington and I moved to Arizona November 2008.

I enjoy: Reading, surfing the net, traveling, learning more about geneaology, watching recorded tv shows or movies. I like swimming or simply floating in the pool. I enjoy writing poetry and blogs and at some point will use enough discipline to get the 'book in me out'.

I will continue to learn new things, spend time with my Honey and appreciate life. I'm taking charge of my weight control journey and giving myself the time to learn and enjoy as I continue to lose weight and regain strength and energy. I believe that if I exercise and eat right following the 80/20 rule and believe that I can do it, that it will happen. A lot of times when I'm tempted to eat, I'll blog instead.

Joy is a Choice. Choose joy moment by moment.

When all else fails, persistence prevails.

Injoy:) Carolyn

Hello!

I have a habit of complaining alot. I am always worried. I am always stressed. I need a change. That is where this team comes in! I will attempt to be less negative & feel as blessed as possible.

My blogs have not been very professional. I will improve upon that also.

Thank you!

I was glad to learn about this team. I'm working with several challenges - medicines that can cause weight gain and some difficulties (osteoarthritis,etc.) that sometimes require slowing down to avoid injury. I can use a positive attitude to keep myself going and continue to create a healthier lifestyle. For example, since joining SparkPeople I am eating a huge variety of fruits and vegetables and I am exercising more. Overall, I am keeping my blood sugar levels lower.
And I am much more aware of calories and quantities.

So glad I found this team and looking forward to the positive blogs! I am retired and enjoying life as much as I can, been married for 45 years to my high school sweetheart, two grown children and two darling grand daughters. I have been at this lifestyle change for many years and have been struggling lately so I need to get focused on what works for me and what I have yet to change or overcome. emoticon

Making changes one day at a time!

Hi I am Pam and I needed to find positive. Seems so much time is spent on the negative and I soak it up. I was feeling sparked out because of another team that I quit was so negative. That is all that got posted. I do care and I feel bad for them but it seemed to bring me down so much. So here I am along with another team that I keep but need some ooph lol.

Hi all!

I would probably never have found this team if sparkcoach hadn't pointed it out and man would I be missing out! Being positive is pretty much the foundation of what I'm building my life around, and this is so perfect...

Anyway.... 37, female, divorced, and have been overweight since I was 12. I lost 90 pounds with Sparkpeople years ago and then gained about 50 of it back, but I'm working on it! I work between 2 and 4 jobs depending on the week and have a lot going on, mostly that's great but sometimes a bit overwhelming. It's all work that I love though.

I'm looking forward to reading other people's positive blogs, and adding my own words to the mix!

The SparkCoach directed me here & I read a few things but your motto had me in tears. I have been studying the Welsh language and would very much like to get the Welsh phrase "I will" as a tattoo! Just reading your motto made me feel welcome!

Hello, I am grateful to be part of a positive group. Positive outlooks will bring about positive changes. I am 62, paraplegic and need to loose 60 pounds. I believe with Family, Friends and Faith I can accomplish my goal by June. I am new not only to this group but to spark as well and am finding the resources here most valuable. Blessings to everyone emoticon

Hi everyone...I am looking for some positives and this looks like I will find some here. 2016 has not been a great year. Lost my first born son to cancer in September. Try every day to stay positive and drag myself up by my boot strapts. A friend said I have had two many losses in my life...husband, grandson and now son. Am gaining back weight Ihave lost and refuse to do that. Was born and raised in London, England. Have been an American for many years. Live in Florida and love it. Have been active on SP since 2009. Christmas is almost here, tree is decorated, big family Christmas Eve party to be held at my home. Feel I have been led to your team. God bless!

I've been away from Sparkpeople for quite some time. I just figured out how to access some of it from my phone. So the first team I searched for was this one. When I saw that Namcy, Wanda, and Shirl were still here it felt like coming home. Janet

Welcome Wendy. It looks like I am going to learn a new language of kilograms and icms. Not sure how that translates, but welcome welcome!

Hi! My name is Wendy and I live in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. I am really loving Sparkpeople and decided to join this team after hearing about it from Coach Nicole on SparkCoach! I have lost 8kg so far but have been on a plateau for the last couple of months!
I am still losing icms so am not too concerned but would still like the scales to go down as well!

Hi Michelle. I saw you over on the realistic goals challenge. Welcome. My father passed in March. It's a rough time. But my siblings, Mom and I were all with him. He had been in the hospital and we got him hospice care and brought him home so that he could be comfortable as he made his transition. It is not an easy thing to maneuver through, but I hope it is a peaceful transition for your dad.

I am just getting back into sparking after being with my dad and getting my daughter's wedding taken care of. Now I am back hanging around the positive people to get my program back in order. Welcome to those new folks that I was not here for as well. I hope to get to now you and share in your journey as well!

Have an awesome day!

~Nancy~

Hi fellow sparkers! I am new to the team and looking forward to being a part of things. I have a very sad thing happening in my life right now, my dear father is dying in the hospital, so I need all the positivity I can get to combat depression and be what my dad would want, happy, not that he is dying but happy that he will soon be in heaven and no longer be in pain.
Anyway, I am very glad to get to know you all!
Keep on sparking,
Michelle

Hello positive Sparkers:

I try to write a positive blog every single day, so this is just where i want to be. I also look forward to READING positive blogs.

My name is Jane, I live in Minneapolis, and since May, 2015, I have lost 121 pounds.

I just turned 60, and had a goal of hitting my goal by my birthday and made it. I just had a knee replacement...my third one, long story, and have my DD, her boyfriend and her cat living with me for a little while. It was quite an adjustment, since I have been alone in the house since she left for college, but I am really enjoying my DD as an adult. They are moving out soon, and I will miss the lively banter in the house.

I love me some Spark!!

Spark on.

Hello all,
my name is Ute, I am German born in 1969, and have lived in Upstate NY with my hubby since 2002. We have twin daughters, who are in college. I work 4 days per week in a very busy veterinary practice as a Receptionist. I am a very happy and positive person, and always have been, and I can use every ounce of seeing the good in the ugly at the front desk. It has made all the difference for me. Otherwise, I am certain, I could not continue doing this job. So instead of screaming "Who the heck RAISED you?" at customers, I take a deep breath and vow to send everyone away happier, better, calmer, more loved than when I met them. And it works like a charm. :) I have been sparking since 2006 with huge breaks in between, that I used successfully for filling up the fat depots on my body. Since last September, I recommitted, and with the help of the 5% Challenges, I have lost 20some pounds, and am getting stronger, healthier, fitter, not necessarily happier, because that's a default of mine, and never went away.I still have about 25-40 pounds to lose, depending on how I feel when I get there. I am looking forward to getting to know you all.

Hi. I just joined this team. I have several blogs outside of SparkPeople in addition to my SP blog. Positivity is where it's at, in my opinion! I'm a 58 year-old grandma who has struggled with weight for a long time, but am otherwise healthy and work at being happy and joyful. Life is good. Hope to get to know some of you and that we can all make a difference in each others' lives.
