Hi everyone! I am a 25 year old female from Piedmont, Alabama. I have currently lost 69 pounds and have a gazillion more to go. No really, I have about 130 more to go. It hasn't been an easy road; however, I am looking forward to a healthy and productive life because of this journey!

Hello Everyone,

I live in Hoover. I am not new to the team, but this is the first time I have posted a message. To be honest with you I really have not taken my weight issue seriously. I have finally hit a wall and I HAVE to do something about my weight. I have been so busy taking care of other people and I have really let myself go. I need some support to get through this journey. I really would appreciate any help or tips that I can get.

Thanks,
Yvette

Hello, I am Heather and I live In Shelby County. I am the mother of 3 beautiful children ages 13, 11 and 6 as well as 2 step daughters that are 16 and 17. Yes, I have my hands full. I joined spark people after a friend told me about it and I am looking forward to losing some of these pounds I have put on.

I just REALLY have to get used to tracking calories etc. It's hard to cook for a family and not be able to eat some of the things I cook but that's ok. : ) I look forward to talking to some of you and staying motivated!!

Hi all,
I have been lurking around this site for a few months now and just trying to use the tools that are available. Dr. wants me to lose 30lbs. now and I also have foot surgery coming again in January. That six weeks and recovery time makes it easy to drop off the program. emoticon Bought the book and it does make a difference. Not just another meet and greet site. Today I made a bean soup using chicken broth instead of ham. Turned out good. Live in LA (lower Alabama), work part-time, old enough to be retired - just not rich enough. Love our weather, sunshine and most everything about Alabama. Remember to vote on Tuesday!!

Hi Everyone. I'm Teresa and I'm from the Arab area in North Alabama. I have about 100 lbs to lose. Recently lost 2.4 pounds after 3 weeks. Yesterday and Today I "fell off the wagon" and have ate everything I can get my hands on. Why do i do this? So frustrating! Have every book under the sun about eating disorders. I have the most important book in the world (The Bible), but I have so much trouble staying motivated. Looking forward to learning more about this site so that I can make some online friends and get a little support. I am so good at GIVING support, but no good at taking my own advice. God bless.

Hi! I joined SparkPeople in January, but didn't start any real attempt at losing weight until May. I live in central Alabama in Shelby County with my husband of 14 years and our two children, 6 and 19 months. I have lived in 'Bama for most of my life. I didn't start gaining weight until my family moved back from NY in the early 80's. I was a size 16 all of my high school years and slowly gained through college and married life. I got up to 260ish towards the end of my 2nd pregnancy in 2009, although after his birth I went down to 242. I stayed there until May of 2010 when I started walking. I am down to 208 as of this morning but I have been there for over a week, so I'm thinking I am at a plateau. Need motivation!

Be Strong!

I found a few of those lost pounds. I'm sure you don't want them back. I have a feeling that Krispy Kreme recycles them back into "Hot & Fresh". (((sigh)))

Hi! My name is Shelley. Mom to three beautiful daughters who are begging me to lose weight. I guess that is one of the main reasons why I am doing this because I just don't seem motivated to do it for myself. I am for my girls. Anyway I am from South Alabama. Have lived here all of my life except for about ten years where I was in central Alabama and Auburn.

Hi my name is Wendy and I live on the Gulf Coast. I found out about this site from a friend that lives in Pittsburgh and she is having great results. I am 45 and lost 60 pounds over 2 years ago, but in the last year or so I have put on around 25-30 pounds again. I would like to loose that plus the last 20 I had still to loose. I hope to use this site to do just that. My daughters wedding is in May and I would like to have lost at least 30 pounds by then. Hope to meet some great people who inspire.

Hey everyone. I am Denise and I live in Prattville. I am trying to lose my last 18 pounds to reach my Weight Watchers goal and finally become a lifetime member. I have run 7 5K's and am seriously thinking about running an 8K in October. I started running a year ago in July and have enjoyed every minute of it. Started off very slowly and have worked my way up. Not too bad for a 50 year old. I also enjoy Zumba. Hopefully, I can stay focused and reach my goal.

Hi, my name is Katie. I am 24 year old stay at home mom to an almost two year old. I live in Tuscumbia (north west Alabama). I currently weigh 243 lbs and I am so tired of having to pay like $20 or more extra for clothes, that I am finally trying to get my butt in gear. I really need someone that is willing to keep me in line (my husband sucks at trying to make me stick to a diet, he gives in to easy lol). I would love to find someone around me that would like to go walking some time or a work out buddy of some sort. I really can't afford a gym membership, so I need someone to be active with. I don't get online much right now, but we are about to get internet at my house, so I will hopefully be able to post on here more often then. If there is anyone that is near me that would like to help out and be helped, just let me know! Thanks for reading this long introduction! Nice to meet everyone!

Morning!

My name is Kelly and I'm a 30yo single graphic designer from North Alabama. For some time I have wanted to loose weight, thought about losing weight but never really tried. I was recently diagnosed with pre-diabetes and it was the wake-up call I needed.

I've been on sparkpeople before, browsing the site but not committing. Now I'm determined to do it for reals.

I got the spark book (audio) and have been listening to it. Such a smart book and so true.

Anyway, hope everyone has a great weekend!

Kelly

emoticon Hey everyone!
My name is Heather and I am a 41 year old, single mother of 3 (all girls ages 19, 16 and 3 YEP I said 3 years old there). I work full-time and I'm currently attending Jeff State part-time to get my RN degree and make a career change.

I need to lose about 40 pounds and I know I can do it, I just have to stay on track (logging what I eat each and every day, and getting at least 30 minutes of exercise 4-5 times a week). Motivation for losing is:
#1 being able to play with Princess B (the 3 year old)
#2 and knowing that when I get that RN degree/license I will no longer be sitting at a desk any longer and will need to be in better shape in order to do the work required
#3 getting a new, super cute wardrobe

A bonus would be finding a wonderful man to put up with me and my kids LOL :)

That's about it for now... gotta get back to work, but hopefully I will be able to participate here and get to know some of y'all. emoticon

Hi, my name is Vicki. I live in Arley which is just north of Jasper in Winston County. I have lost a considerable amount of weight over the last year but have been unable to lose the last bit of weight that I need to. I am not a very active person but am hoping for the best with Spark People. I'm looking forward to getting healthier...

Hey my name is Kelli and I'm new to SP. I'm from Decatur Alabama, but I currently live in Daphne Alabama and love it here. I just had my second child, and I'm trying to get back to the size I was before my first child, and I also want to be active and healthy. I have never been a healthy eater and I haven't been real active for about 4 years so I hope and pray I can do this!!

Hiya! I'm Relie, and I'm a senior in college. I've never been super-active or super-thin, but being sort of out of shape never really bothered me before I went to work with elementary-school kids. Then they asked me to play Tag, and made me it. :( So I want to be able to play Tag with "my kids" without feeling like I'm gonna keel over.

Hi everyone! I'm Lisa, and I'm a 25 year old looking for motivation (and a workout buddy, anyone in the Pelham/Helena area!) to lose the 10-15 pounds that have crept up on me the past 4 years. I work second shift, so I've found it hard to force myself out of the house before work-here's hoping some accountability will get me out of the bed and onto the treadmill!

Hey!

I'm still getting used to this board so if I have thousands of introductions all over the place I'm sorry.

I'm 25, married, female, and definitely having a fat day thanks to this weekend's activities.

I'm about 24 pounds out of my goal weight but I've been in a plateau for almost a year now. Any help is greatly appreciated.

How do you put signatures on your sparkpeople account? Like those weight tracker things?

Hello everyone! I am Kayron, a 45 yr old Admin Assistant at Auburn University. I have just joined spark people and slowly learning to navigate the site. I am so excited to find a support group of people who are "close by". I am on a mission to get back to a healthier weight and I am going to do it, so any support, advice, motivation you can give me along the way will be welcome! I look forward to getting to know everyone and sharing this journey! emoticon

Hi! My name is Juli. I am a 44 years old RN from Alexander City, Alabama. I have been a member of Spark for several years and over the last 2 years have lost 51 pounds and am finally about 5 pounds from goal. I have periodically checked in but not consistantly but feel I need support to lose the last bit and maintain my new lifesytyle. This really is a great site!

Hi, my name is Kelley. I joined Spark 5 days ago. I want to lose at least 40 pounds and keep it off this time. I want to be healthy and fit. So far I am enjoying Spark. I like being able to track what I eat. I always do good eating when I write down my food, but I love how Spark tracks cals, carbs, fat, etc. I can analyze what I am putting in my body.

Welcome to the family PKD,
There is a huge amount of information, exercise videos, and more on here.

I recommend logging your food, drinking lots of water

Post often and get to know everybody, there is always
a daily challenge or question or something going on.
You will get loads of support here too.

Welcome to the Alabama Team.
I live in Oxford. I don't know where Killeen is.
I didn't exercise before I joined Spark either, but I started slowly and worked up to doing aerobics, Zumba and Tae Bo.
I finished three 5K's since April and I'm in my mid-50's.
So, yes, just watching your calories will work; however, with all the benefits of physical activity, I encourage you to try some exercise, unless you have a medical condition that would hinder you.
Just go to Healthy Lifestyle, then click on fitness. You can start out with just six minutes. Believe me, it's effective.

Hi Lisa---
I thought I hated exercise when I started this journey - but now I live for it!! Don't think of this as a diet - diets just don't work. Think of it as more of a lifestyle change!!!
You can do this!!

Hi! I am Lisa, 38 YO, and live in Killen, AL. I am new to spark. This is my very first diet program. I have always been slim but it just seems like as I get older I am getting larger! I currently weigh 150 and my target is 135. I do not exercise so I am going to start this journey by counting calories/portion control and see if I can do it with out increasing my activity level. Anyone else tried that?

Welcome Jenikay. You will love this group...there
are several activities always going on, spark has
unlimited information on food and exercise videos,
and limitless support from the rest of us. I do
highly recommend logging your food and drinking a
minimum of 8 glasses of water a day. I drink 12, &

Hello and welcome. You might be pleased to know that I have lost 58 pounds with SP's help. And I must say it's hard NOT to get motivated if you stay connected with this site and the people here!!! emoticon

Hi, I'm from St. Clair Co area and this is my first time with SP and my first step to a new healthy lifestyle. I've got 58 pounds to lose and am really afraid of failing. I'm not a motivated person, but I know I have to do this. My weight is getting out of control and I want to know how to be healthy so I can teach my son. Thanks for any help and tips!

Hi...I'm Hope and have returned home to Alabama after being in Memphis the last several years. I live in a small town in Talladega County, so even though I grew up here, its been a total culture shock.

I have about 15 more pounds to go to reach my goal weight and was pretty successful with SP a couple of years ago so ventured back on board!
