thanks ladies! My biggest challenge these days is staying out of all the junk food that I have around at work. The biggest support anyone can offer me is the motivation to keep logging in each day and keep myself accountable which everyone does by continuing to talk. The emails of a new post just BEG me to come back emoticon

Hey fellow sparkers! Im not new to SP but new here. Been through some ups and downs and was gone for long time. I must have learned something since I only gained 10 during my time of laziness ( lazy is putting it mildly). So here I am, back with some new goals. I have 2 girls (5 and 8) and a hubby to keep up with and I work 6 days a week in the sheriff's office. Finding time is tough with my finals so I have been studying on the ellipical and lemme tell ya, 45 min passes faster that way!

I am new to the team. I am also a person who believes that being POSITIVE in all things works for the better of the mind, body, and spirit. And I tend to just stay away from negative people if I can't help them in any POSITIVE way possible.

I look forward to being a member and participating in team activities.

Love and Light

Hi All. I'm Melissa. I've been with SParkPeople for a while and feel I have fallen into a rut. I am looking for motivation to continue on my journey to a better lifestyle. I haven't had the where-with-all to continuously exercise each week and I am hoping I can get some good vibes from all of you to get back on track.

Hi, my name is Trace, I'm new to this team but thought I needed it more than anything else. I'm not new to SP but fairly new. I fight depression and anxiety and need some motivation and positive vibes to keep me on track. Thank you so much

I like myself just the way I am. Self acceptance is the stairway to becoming a better me.

Hi everyone. My name is Anne. My sister (Sandkarma) has been a member of this team for a while and I finally decided to join. I am married with 3 sons (18, 16 and 12) so I spend a lot of time wrapped up in them. My husband and I own a restaurant and I just went back to school and completed my teaching degree. I have been subbing for about 6 years and am now looking for a teaching job. I need a lot of positive vibes!!

Hello everyone! I am a married mother of twins who hopes to gain and give insight on my journey to obtaining the life I deserve....fulfilled and heatlhy. It's something that we take care of others (i.e kids, work, church, hubby) and then lack the drive to take care of ourselves! Well not anymore....I actually realized it a while back and got to the point where I lost almost 70lbs, then a terrible accident wrecked havic on my exercise plan and my zest. Despite that, I take pride in all that has happened in my life because it has shaped who've I've become and with that being said I know I have the strenght to dig deep and perservere! So I am glad I can meet others who are walking this journey with me! Let's keep sparking it! Tomara

The road to success is not always straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Temptation, red lights called Set backs, and caution lights called Emotional eating. But if you have a spare called determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called faith, and driver named Jesus, you will make it to the place called Success (Phil. 4:13).

Hi everyone,

I'm MJ and I just joined sparkpeople a couple of days ago. I'm at the highest weight I have ever been, 195 lbs. Even when my clothes became tighter and tighter I chose to ignore it and just bought new ones. I wasn't expecting to weigh as much as I did and when I saw that I was 5 lbs away from 200lb I decided that it's time I did something about it. Being 5'1 with over 50 extra lbs to carry is a death sentence.

I'm Vicki, 54, and over the past 30 years I've lost over 100 lbs, kept it off for over 16 years, then over the course of the last 14 years I've struggled to maintain, then to relose 90 lbs I gained over the last 5 years. Menopause played a big part in me gaining the weight plus a bad bike accident that made exercise next to impossible for months. The inactivity plus falling back into bad eating habits helped me to be 90 lbs heavier than I want to be.
But I've also discovered that if I try to push myself to lose a set amount of weight in a set time frame, I'll either become obsessed with the number on the scale or fall into taking risks with my health to see the numbers go down faster.
I'm working on making healthier food choices and getting in some exercise daily, even if it's only 10-15 minutes a day. I figure over time I'll add more exercise as I become more limber.

Hi! I have been on SP for two weeks now and was told about this team today by a spark friend who mentioned the November exercise challenge. I am going to do that challenge along with her.

I am enjoying SP so far and appreciating the support and friendship as well.

Hi, i am Tracey i am 27 and live in the UK.

I started spark a while ago and was obviously not ready to loose weight but i am back at it now and things are going great so far. I have really got into it and feel that i and ready this time around. I lost 2lb last week and i am hoping for the same again this week although my short-term goal is to loose a stone by Christmas so 1lb will be fine.

I find that the support on here really motivates me so i am trying to join groups and meet new people.

Hope everyone is having a great day, hope to get to know you x

Hello,

My name is Sheila. I have been on sparkpeople many years ago and done well, I fell off the wagon, my throid went haywire again, and I gained a lot back. I am here again to meet new friends, in fact, I followed one new wonderful friend here. I like a very active positive group with challenges.

I am very excited to be here. emoticon

Aim for the stars and enjoy the view while getting there.

Hello Team!

I've been on and off Spark People for several years now. At one point I had lost over 60 pounds, but now I'm just under 50 lost. (I'll be updating my tracker in the morning... I'm scared to weigh in -- but it has to be done...)

I really need some Positive Vibes to help keep me on track. I also like your daily weigh-in thread. I wish I would have started October 1st, but oh well. By November 1st I hope to have a weight to be proud of :)

(P.S. -- I have my page set to private, but please feel free to add me as a friend. I use Kestrie for everything online, and I noticed my Spark Blogs were coming up in a Google search... I feel more comfortable sharing my secrets with fellow Spark Friends than the rest of the world! LOL)

Hi New Friends to Be,
My name is Macy. I am 40 year old Grandma who is baffled about how I got here? It was 20 years ago that I became a parent and now I have an 18 month old grand-daughter. I find myself back at square one! I am learning that time does fly by, and that I better enjoy this journey right now ♥

I became very healthy after I had my son in 1991. (I lost 50 pounds by going to the gym.) I look back and see that the journey there was the best part, it wasn't so much the goal at the end. I am ready to become my best me. I want to change everything.

Hi everyone! My name is Joyce and I've just turned 41 two weeks ago. I've started my weight loss journey last september and had lost 50 lbs. I've sort of lost motivation so decided to join Spark to see if it could give me that kick in the butt that I needed.

I have some friends that are awesome and are very supportive and others.. well.. I try not to let them get me down.

I'm ready to feel that spark again and get my butt moving in the right direction!

Joyce


** Change is like walking an uphill, rocky road: you will stumble, you will fall. You may even roll downhill a bit. You will be tempted to stay down. You'll ask yourself "why bother"? But, if you pick yourself up and just keep pushing forward, eventually you'll get to the top and have a beautiful view! **

hi, my name is carla. I am 44 years old and have been heavy my entire life. I think I went from a size 2 to a size 16. I now wear a 22-24. I so want to be able to shop at "normal" stores for clothes. I have no children...besides all my animals.. I don't have many friends so keeping motivated is hard. I have my up and down days. since starting "spark" I have lost 13 pounds....I am eating better. no fast food and 5-6 meals a day. protein shakes for snacks when I know my urges are the worst. Driving home from work my car used to automatically go into the drivethru. well no more I have gone 4 days without fast food. well thats about all for now. thanks

Good Morning!! My name is Pamela...I am once again a new mommy and had a son on June 8th of this year...I also added on some new weight with my little boy. My pre-pregnancy weight was 125-130 and I would love to get back down to that weight. I'm currently at 153 (yuck) and trying to stick to a low calorie diet along with taking walks (more yuck)...need a kick in the butt to get myself motivated because I am very sleep deprived. Oh, I also have a beautiful 7 year old daughter that needs attention too. It's pretty tough to juggle.

Hi everyone - Glamit has been sending me (((~~positive vibes~~))) for the couple months. Last weekend she put positive vibes on my SP page just when I needed a "pick me up". Time to join the team.

I've been on SP for over a year. I have lost 45 lbs and working on the last 15 or so. It's been a slow process, but I managed to restore healthy habits that disappeared for about 10 years. I'm in the middle of a self challenge that runs until November and a mini-challenge (7-days) designed to get me back on track. So far so good.

Hello:

I am here to get emoticon

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

Even if we lose the race, we are still a winner (just a slow winner).

As long as you keep moving, you are still lapping those on the couch.

Do not take things personally as it is never about us.

Don't find fault, find a remedy.

Hi everyone- my name is Jenny emoticon
I have been on SP for quite a while- and I really benefit from the support and positivity! Mainly haveing accountability and a few women who I feel connected too is wonderful and what I need.

I continue to struggle with major weight loss although I do rigorous exercise (kickboxing, Jillian tapes and yoga for 90 minutes) and eat very well- I find myself "stuck." I am GENERALLY A SUPER positive person- I send out "warm fuzzies" constantly to my college students (I am a therapist at university and run a Peer Education group) but sometimes my hills get a bit rough! EVEN SO I KEEP CLIMBING! I AM DETERMINED & I CAN DO IT!



I choose peace instead of this.

In 2013, I am Claiming abundant health, abundant wealth, and abundant energy.

Hi Y'all!

I've been dieting off and on since I started college. When I first graduated 5 years ago, I lost about 60 pounds w/ the help of WW and SP. I've put 20 or so back on since I met my fiance, who introduced me to his amazing southern home cooking. :oP

My goal right now is to get to 185 before my wedding at the end of the month(I've already lost 8 pounds, so just another 7 to go!) After that, I eventually want to reach my goal weight of 155. (I've never weighed less than 175 in my adult life, so I will be SO excited if I can do it!)

Hi, I'm Christy. I've been sparking for over a year now, and love Spark People.
I was visiting IMFIT4ME's sparkpage and it showed posted to the team message board. I feel like I've stumbled on a great team. Looks like there is some good activity for only 153 members.
Looks like a good place to hang out and get sparked!!
I'm from Utah...
My plan is eating good healthy minimally processed / whole foods and preparing meals at home. (even though I work outside the home.)
I'm working on getting more fit, I have a bodybugg that I wear daily. I try to track my food consistently but have fallen off that wagon the last couple of days, (I'm gonna get back to that today.)
Anyhooo, I'm happy to be here and can't wait to get to know ya!

Hi, I am Debbie and I live on the eastern shore of Maryland. I recently moved (just a couple of miles) and between the packing and unpacking and up and dowm the 3 flights and 2 flights of stairs and carrying things I got quite a bit of activity in. Unfortunately, with items not readily available for a short period, I was also going out and eating fast food or the most convenient types of food in the cabinets, which more often than not are very heavy in calories. So I guess one balanced out the other. I am lucky I didn't gain a bunch of weight. Now it's time to get back to business.

hi! My name is Kara... I just can't figure out this losing weight thing. I've been on Sparkpeople for almost 5 years and have lost a total of 17 pounds. I just can't seem to get the rest off. Anyway, I need motivation and friends to get through this. :) I would like to lose 20 more pounds before we start having kids this fall. It's not really about the pounds, but it's more about feeling good aboout myself, confident, and feeling good in my clothes. Also, sticking to a healthy lifestyle! Thanks!!

Hey! My name is Carly and I live in Iowa. I've got 50 lbs. to lose (would prefer 60, but 50's a nice round # to strive for right now:) I've got 2 great sons (ages 6 & 12) and I've been married for 16 years. I need more confidence in myself and hope to get a little of that positive reinforcement I need here!

Hey Team,

I look forward to reciving and giving Positive vibes. By the way for all of those who live in the central florida area check out manifestingnow.com . I tried it and it has been very helpful to me. It has helped me to drink more water,become more physically fit and drop some lbs as well. And I am still going.
