Hey, everyone! My name is Kelly and I just joined SparkPeople last week to breathe some life back into my weight loss journey. I started out last September at my heaviest weight ever, and was able to lose about 30 lbs, but then found myself stuck in a stubborn plateau. That led to me falling off the wagon, bingeing, and gaining back about 15 lbs. I'm not giving up though, I refuse! I joined the Done Girls group because I was reading through the forums and discussions and you all seemed so encouraging and supportive- which is exactly what I need! I'm excited to meet you all and share our journeys:)

Hi I am Jennine & I too am so DONE!! Done with being embarrassed to wear a bathing suit in public. Done with wearing plus size clothing and it's never as cute as the regular sizes. I am 41 & this is the heaviest I have ever been. I started SP a week ago and lost 5 lbs so far. I am doing a program at my Gym called the biggest thriver. Working out 6 days a week. I plan to keep on going even after program is done. Already feeling more energized & really like SP so far.

Hello everyone! My name is Stephanie and I am DONE DONE DONE! I'm a 41-year old author living in the south with my husband of eighteen years and our two children. I have reached my highest weight of 322 pounds, and I can't live like this any longer. My husband and children deserve a happy, healthy wife and mother, and that's what I'm going to give them.

I look forward to getting to know all of you! Good luck to you all!

Hi! My name is Tammie. I'm a 35 year old mother of one. The highest weight I've WEIGHED is 349, but I know that I'd lost 10-15 pounds in the weeks before that weigh in. For now, my goal weight is set at 150 pounds, but it may change as I get closer. We'll see what happens. This is my second round with SparkPeople. I quit before, well, I'm not quite sure why other than we had dial up and tracking my food would literally take a half hour for one or two items... Now we have satellite, which can be just as bad, but I also now have an Iphone, so I'm able to track with the apps from there.

I'm an RN on a medical/ surgical floor. I've battled my weight all of my life. This time feels different, so here we go!!!

Hello All. My Name is Jaime and I am 34 y/0. And I am BEYOND DONE!!

I am so sick of hearing you have a beautiful face. I started my weight loss journey approx. 3 weeks ago and I am down 15 pounds. Thank you to a HORRIBLE stomach bug! I think that helped me get a jump start.

I have been walking at lunch time and at home in the evening. Now that we change the clocks ahead I will be able to work out longer in the evening. I am really looking forward to it!!

best of luck on all your journeys!!

One day at a time...

I am thankful everyday for the support system that I have.

Keep up the great work everyone!

Hi all,

My name is Nicole, I'm 24, and I am so DONE. :) I am ready to change my lifestyle and get busy living. I am not new to SP, just new to the team. I was away for awhile, but I've been back at 'it' since January 1, this year, and I'm still going strong. I am super active on the site as I find it keeps me in line and there are such great people on here for motivation and inspiration.

Feel free to add me!

Hi, I am Shari... and I am rebooting my efforts to be DONE being the fat girl!

I initally started a couple of years ago, but was sidetracked.... big breakup, lots of drama. Been working on getting back to the person I see myself as.... healthy, fit, outdoorsy.... and not how other people see me--fat, and not worth their time.

:D

Never Give Up.

WOW! I've never felt so welcome in an online forum before! Thanks for all the welcome messages!
One of my team captains for a Biggest Loser Challenge in another forum is a Done Girl, so I wanted to check it out -- especially now that our BLC is over.
So, my name is Michele, and I've been heavy most of my life. I've successfully lost weight before, but it's never stuck. But this time, I'm DONE with the yo-yo dieting and I'm DONE being the fat girl!
emoticon
I'm 31 years old, single, and tired of waiting for my life to start while I struggle to lose weight. I've already seen some success using SP -- down about 22 pounds since October -- but I'm ready to redouble my efforts in hopes of seeing the weight come off more quickly.
Looking forward to being part of the Done Girls team!!

I am most certainly DONE being the fat girl. I'm DONE with not putting myself first! Determined to get to the elusive ONEderland. I'm only a few lbs away but I always freeze up at this point. I thought joining a group with strong determined women might help!

Hello All!! I've been on the site for just over a week, and I'm looking for some challenges to participate in, or an accoutability buddy to work with.

I've got a great new, motivating spark friend! And she's wonderful! But I think I want to take part in a challenge. I don't see any new ones on the site... are there any coming up, or one that we could start here at the beginning of March?

Hello everyone! I'm Alicia and I've started my journey as of February 6th. My goal is to lose 100 in a year and perhaps a little bit more depending on what it feels like when I get there. I'm done feeling like that fat girl even if others don't think I "look" fat. I need to do this for me.

I've lost 4 lbs so far. On March 13th I'll be 27 and I hope to have lost at least 10 lbs by then. Next year will be my high school's 10th reunion. I have to look drop dead sexy by then too emoticon emoticon emoticon

Nice to meet all of you!

Hi, I just joined SP two days ago and all is new to me :-/ This team immediately caught my eye, and I thought it would be a perfect place to start!

I'm 37 years old, and much of my weight problem began in college and since then I have gradually gotten bigger and bigger to where I am now. I wish I had heeded the warnings earlier... now it feels like losing weight is such a huge undertaking that its hindered me from even getting started.

I've tried EVERYTHING from Jenny to HCG... the only thing I haven't done is surgery which is something I was hoping to avoid. I see this (stumbling across SP) as a blessing which the Lord brought my way. I'm serious about losing weight. I'm TIRED of being obese. I'm ready in so many ways!

Any help, advice, encouragement is WELCOMED! Not too familiar yet with the website, but if you can add me as a friend I would be most grateful.

Thank you for reading, and I'm happy to be apart of this team!

~Wehi (VAY-hee)

Hi! I'm probably the oldest person here and have been around a few years. I am Vee and I am 60 and you would think at my age people would not think I am pregnant but fat! I suffer from some health conditions and pills that make losing weight very difficult and my doc tells me I have metabolic syndrome and cant' lose weight. i think its mostly the pills I am on though, I go up and go down but I never got completely down.

My son had lost 100 pounds and I wanted to show him I can do it too, only got off a few pounds when I first started back a few years ago and then had a few injuries and falls and illnesses an that happens the older I get, but I'm not going to give up, it just might take me till I am 70 if I live that long and I keep trying and I do exercise and enjoy it, hoping to get to meet everyone and I"m not even a grandmother so you can't call me granny, but I want to lose weight too and or inches. Blessings everyone!

Hello!

I'm Linda, and I am D-O-N-E! I have to be. I've been so lucky to avoid major health problems for most of my life, but now I have high blood pressure and I do not want to take meds for it. Healthy, low-sodium diet and exercise are the way!

I have 190lbs to lose total and have already lost 11 of them. My ultimate goal prize is a gorgeous wedding gown to wear when my husband and I renew our vows at our 5 year anniversary, but I plan on enjoying smaller rewards along the way.

Looking forward to getting to know all of you!

Just stopping in to say hello!

I'm Michelle, just turned 24 in January and have been overweight most of my life. My highest was 283, currently 275ish so I'm trying to do what I can to get down to a healthy weight. I was actively involved when I first joined spark, then became MIA for a while with work hours getting up to 60 hours a week. Glad to be back and hope to meet some new friends and learn of some new things to try for my weight and health. :)

Hello everyone,

I have been struggling for the last 2 years to effectively lose weight. My heaviest at one time was 340 pounds, in 2009. Today I'm under the 300 mark and still going, at a snails pace. I work out hard, and often. I work out at least 500 times a week an hour at a time. I struggle with my eating. I joined this group to get inspired by others who feel the same and maybe inspire others at the same time.

Hi, I'm Sarah. I've been halfheartedly trying to lose weight for years but got serious about it recently. I'm actually starting using the elliptical I bought a year ago on a regular basis. I've been overweight for almost as long as I can remember but I am so done being the fat girl. I started making an effort to be healthier about 6/7 months ago and I've already lost 50 pounds. It has given me a wonderful sense of accomplishment and boosted my self-confidence.
I have a long, long way to go before I reach my ultimate goal weight but it will be worth it no matter how long it takes. I have two strong current motivators, the first is that I really want to feel good about how I look in my cap and gown when I walk across the stage to get my degree in May. The second is related- I want to be able to wear a nice, tailored suit when I start my job hunt. I also have a long-term goal of eventually being able to run a marathon.


With accomplishment comes satisfaction that cannot be achieved any other way. - Wayne Rich

Mini Goal: 300 by November 1st.

I all, new within the last month or so. Determined to clear this long hurdle and finally stop being the fat girl. I just turned 38 and my current goal is to loose 40 pounds and then see how I am looking and feeling.

Can't wait to get to know everybody.
