Hi everyone,

I'm MJ and I joined this team on dec 2nd, 2010. However I've been MIA from spark for a few weeks and have decided that it was time to come back. Though I haven't been on spark I think I've done some great improvements with myself and I'm hoping this team will help me make more. I'm looking forward to meeting new people and hopefully make some friends along the way.

I meant I joined spark on dec 2nd, not this team..

Hi! My name is Kathy. I retired a year ago and I am really enjoying it. My husband retired as well so we could spend time together while we were still healthy and able to do what we love - hiking and camping. However, we both enjoy good food and being near food all day has been a challenge. It has been so easy to eat too much! We are now both working at losing the extra weight we put on and really did not need! I'm glad to have this site to help me.

Hi, my name is Alex. I'm a 19 year old student in Berlin, Germany. I've been a member of this site for a couple weeks now but have yet to post a message. I have been tracking my food intake though, and very much enjoy this site. I'm excited to become more active in this site and get to know you all.

Hi all! I re-joined (i.e. actually logged back in to sp) a few weeks ago so I put myself in this group. I started originally in 2009 but stopped trying and also gained another 20 lbs or so since. I am more determined than ever, so I figured now was a good time to get back on to sp and get the support I am totally going to need!
It took me a few days to decide how I wanted to go about this, and so I have been tracking my calorie intake for over a week now and have gone to the gym a few times, but also walked a mile after work almost every day. My first official weigh in will be Monday morning (12/13).
I'm happy to be here and if there is anything I can do for us to help eachother, I'm on it!!! emoticon

Hey everyone, my name is Jessica, I am a social worker with two boys. This like many others is my second time on sparkpeople. Last time this year I was getting close to my goal weight only to gain about 75lbs., getting me higher than ever. I have learned the real way to lose weight. I will succeed this time and would really like to have a buddy that is willing to work hard and support each other to get this weight off. Support for me is going to be the key.

Hi all!

I'm Stacey - I joined late last night, so that put me in this Class just under the wire! I'm originally from Minnesota and am currently living in Richmond, VA. Starting my current job led to a big drop in my daily activity (I used to walk to work, now I drive for an hour) and along with that, the pounds have slowly added on. I'm hoping to lose at least 30 pounds by next July, when I will be in a good friend's wedding! That would also, at the same time, put me into the 'healthy' BMI category - an equally good goal, I think!

Good luck to everyone!
Stacey

Hi, I'm Courtney and joined Sparks this evening. I'm 31, soon to be 32 and am determined to lose 30 lbs! I run a couple road races in Richmond, VA each year, so in some ways running is my therapy. I'm hoping Spark will help me get my diet in check!

I am also rejoining. I have about 95 pounds to lose. I definately need a buddy. Someone who is serious about staying in touch and being a support system. But I am excited to be on the journey this time. I won't quit...this time I WILL reach my goals.

I too am rejoining to give it another shot. I'm 29, about to turn 30 and have 75 pounds to lose. I'm currently a SAHM and I know that that is a big part of the weight issue. So, I'm actively searching for a job and some other outlets for me to use instead of food to ease the boredom and unhappiness of being at home.

Hello, everyone! My name is Catherine. I am 21 years old. I have been a member of SparkPeople previously, but I ended up falling off the wagon. I have about 20-30 pounds that I would like to lose, so here I am again.
I have done Jenny Craig and Weight Watchers in the past. I did well with both, but when I stopped doing them, I gained most of the weight back again.

Happy Thursday to everyone!

Just want you all to know I do read the posts daily but with my work schedule until Christmas (I work for a delivery company.....think brown!) so right now everything is hectic and long hours. I'll try to catch up with as many people as possible over the weekend.

I want to welcome everyone that's new and encourage you to post. There are numerous studies that show that people who are active on weight loss sites do lose more. Plus the support is so awesome. I've made several friends here and even though I've not lost the weight I want to, it's good to know others are here, struggling with perhaps some of the same issues you might be.

Have a happy, healthy Thursday!

Debbie

Hello everyone! Just joined a few minutes ago and trying to figure out what to do first! I have 137 pounds to lose to reach my goal, but am going to take it in 10 pound mini goals to keep myself motivated. I am very excited about all sparkpeople has to offer, and about having buddies to talk to who are in the same boat. I am 42, have two beautiful children (5 and 7), and am ready to change my life so that I can enjoy watching them grow up.

Hi all, I also am brand spanking new to the site. I've spent most of the day figuring out where things are. I would like to lose 93 lbs and have become so desperate I was actually starting to research gastric bypass. I decided to look at some WW reviews and stumbled across a post that mentioned sparkpeople! It seems to be the best kept "secret" on the internet. I'm encouraged by all I've seen and read, and the site seems so user friendly. It incorporates the best of all that's out there, and how can you beat the price??! Anyhow, I hope to finally lose my weight w/o surgical intervention. Would love some buddies to hold me accountable and motivate me! And I will be passing this site on to friends and family!!

P.S. I'm a 45 y/o wife and mother of 3. I work outside the home and have recently started back to college! I love animals, movies, and books.

Welcome to SparkPeople everyone! I've had a long couple of days at work but over the next few days I'll get in touch with each of you that have a SparkPage to personally welcome you.

I know the site has a ton of information and it can be a bit much. Take the time to get familiar with everything. Once I finally figured everything out there is so much to help you on the journey.

And as always if you need anything shoot me an e-mail and I'll respond as soon as I can. The other team leader wasn't able to help with the group and I'm working on finding a replacement. So then there will be two of us you can turn to for resources or help.

Happy Wednesday!

Debbie

Hello All. I too, am not new to sparkpeople but am starting fresh. I am hoping to find encouragement and positive folks trying to reach for a healthy life. In the past I have lost within pounds of my goal only to gain it back. I am here for a fresh start and hopefully a permanent hold on health.

Hi everyone, I am not new to sparkpeople but have decided to start fresh. I lost 20 lbs several years ago and have succeeded in maintaining that loss. Now, I wish to lose at least 20 additional pounds, at least to start. I am super excited and have signed up for a new gym coming to my area in January and I can't wait to hit the gym.

I am also hoping to make new friends and find new inspiration here!

..never regret the things that have happened in your life, these things all contribute to building character and it is character that makes us who we are today.

Hi everyone! I am not new to sparkpeople. I have another profile but I felt that I needed to start fresh and made a new profile. I am married with a 8 month old baby boy and I need to loose this dreaded baby weight. I have lost 40lbs so far and need to loose another 40lbs.

Nice to meet everyone :)

Hi there,
I am 32 years old and I am having a VERY hard time trying to get moving again. After having lost 85 lbs 5 years ago, I have gained most of it back in the last year. I am finding it very difficult to get motivated to lose weight and tone up again. I joined SP so that I can track what I am doing right, and where I may need improvement. Also, I think that hearing from others who are in the same place as I am is a great means of support. We all know what it is like to struggle.

Hello. My name is Jennifer. I joined Sparkpeople as a way of beginning to take control of my eating (and exercise) habits. I hope to find motivation, support, as well as, tools I can use to reach my goal and lead a healthier (and lighter) life.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. It will be nice to get to know everyone.

Hello. My name is Joanna and I'm from Kentucky. I'm 23 years old and have been married for five years. I started gaining weight about a month after getting married. I decided to join SparkPeople for motivation and support. I have a problem of falling off the wagon. I do good starting off for the first two weeks and then I start to give up.
