Hi everyone. I'm new to the team, but not to Sparks. I was here about a year or two ago and had lost about 30-40 lbs. Well, I'm back where I started and disgusted. Hoping to get some support and motivation that I've been lacking.

I just wanted to introduce myself to the team. I'm a wife & mother of 2 teens. I am disabled due to multiple health issues and I finally decided that I don't want another pill to help with these issues that shedding pounds might remedy.

Thanks for allowing me to join the team!

Good Early Morning Everybody,
My name is Diane(SmilinDi), I am 39 years YOUNG, and have lost 185 lbs since my son was three years old. He is now 17...it's been a long slow journey, and a wonderful one at that.

My weightloss ticker here starts at 277, sooo with that number in mind I have lost 97 lbs. Whooo-hooo! Feeling wonderful all the way around, or less around since my "circle" isnt so big any longer~ emoticon .

This weightloss journey has been with my Dad as my inspiration. His health problems are emense, but his personality is OUTSTANDING. If I "opt not" to wear his shoes, it was due time to get my life under control. That I have, and now it is a lifestyle without pause, or rewind at that. Just memories of way back when...that keep me pushing forward. emoticon The best is yet to come.

~SmilinDi~ emoticon

Hello Everyone!!

My name is Rhiannon, I'm 25 years old, teach preschool and sell avon. I am the mother of a 3 month old girl, who is my driving force in life.

I want to be an example for her, and be around for her. I have lost 1 pound so far, which leaves me with 102lbs left to go to reach my goal weight (which is in the middle of what is considered to be a healthy bmi for my height).

I can't wait to get to know everyone.

Hi all! I saw this group featured, and it seemed really motivational, so I joined up.

My name is Sophia, I'm 26 years old from the UK.

I've been at Spark several times before, lost a bit of weight and then given up. This time around things are different. I'm exercising reguarly at the gym, eating well and have a better mindset.

I've been recommitted for just over 3 weeks now, and have lost 7.8lbs. I'm very happy with my progress so far, and I will not give up this time.

~ Main Goal - Lose 70lbs ~
~ Mini Goal - Lose 5lbs in August ~
~ Fire & Ice Challenge - Lose 40lbs by 01Dec09 ~

Hi everyone. My name is Laila & I've finally become motivated to seriously, SERIOUSLY change my lifestyle ... :-) I've probably got about 70-80 lbs I want to lose, although my weight tracker only goes 40lbs.... once I reach 40lbs, I'll extend it ... lol ... it seems more doable at this moment to lose 40, but once I'm down to that, I'll certainly be motivated enough to keep going for another 40! :)

I've got several reasons for wanting to lose weight, getting pregnant being one of them. I was diagnosed with PCOS a while back, and I'm not horribly out of balance so losing some pounds should perhaps improve this. I also want to have a breast reduction surgery at some point and I want to lose weight beforehand.

Anyway ... I saw this group, it seems very friendly & nice & FUN which is just what a person needs when battling weight so here I am :)

Take care everyone, hope you're all having a fabulous day! :)


Laila

Hey All!!

Well, I'm Jennifer... but everyone calls me Jenn.I'm a pretty outgoing girl, I love to laugh, my family is the most important part of my life, my parents are wonderful and I'm still a daddy's girl. I love to scrapbook and I always have my camera with me. I just got married April 25, 2009 to my best friend Eric. We have known one another for about 7 years, dated for 2 years but when working night shift and long school hours caused us not to see each other... we "took a break" and thats where my beautiful Stepson, Landen comes in the picture! Eric came to me when Landen was born and told me he couldn't raise his son alone... and we have been a family ever since. Luckily, I don't have the baby-mama's drama like some do, we have custody and we all get along, which is great for Landen. :)

I work at my local Cancer Center in the Radiation dept. I truly love my job even thought I deal with the devastation of cancer daily. The patients we see have such a strength within them it's truly amazing. My patients have taught me so much and I honestly don't have many "Bad Days" to complain about, because compared to what some of my patients are going through... I have no reason to complain!!

So thats why I am here. I am a very strong willed person, but I still need a little help along the way. I lost about 50 pounds for my sister's wedding three years ago with the help of old fashion calorie counting with tons of exercise and it worked very well for me...until I put the weight back on... damn. I'm going to do it this time, for good... no more waiting, excuses... it's time! I'm ready to be healthy not only for myself, but for my family. I want to be the active mom and sexy wife for my hubby. Thanks to all the wonderful people I have met through Spark, you all are very supportive and that will keep me going!! I have a large goal to meet, but with time I'll make it.

Well, thats me in a nutshell... Chat with ya later!!

Have a great week!!

~Jenn emoticon

HI! I just realized I never actually introduced myself to the team...oops sorry. My name is Sarah, I'm a married,36 year old mom of two. I work with special needs children and go to school online. I came here because of my best friend, Chris or Tee, (as we call each other). I am making it a goal to get on here daily now, no matter how busy I get!

Hi everyone! I was invited to the team by PHOENBRADLEY76. I live in Florida and teach art in high school. I know I've looked in the mirror over the last few years so I don't know how gaining 50 pounds managed to escape my notice. But it did. I must have been suffering from mirror denial. Anyway, the denial is OVER! I am ready to work! I am so inspired by the success stories on SP. I can't wait to be one of them.

Morning everyone. Hockey 47 invited me to join this team. I have been a member of sp since 07 but have never really used it. Still a little overwhelmed w/it all so bear w/me.
I am from MO. have lost 25 lbs. and would still like to lose 10-15. Have maintained for almost a year but can't figure out how to start losing again. Don't like counting calories. Exercise is not a problem so just gliding along. Need all the support I can get so any suggestions are welcome.

Hi All! I was checking out Lesley's page - she and I are on the Arizona team together (go Cardinals!). That's how I saw this team and it looks like a great group.

Name: Sue
Where R U From: Arizona!
What are your goals: I've lost 25 pounds so far, and need to lose another 40.
What's your fave exercise: Walking. I'm just getting into jogging and spinning. I also like yoga.
What has been the hardest part of sticking to it: I have a hard time exercising as many days per week as I should. I need to get out there every day!
How can we as a team support you and keep you motivated: I'm looking for a fun, active team that will be there for support on the tough days and celebration on the successful days!

To change one's life: Start immediately, do it flamboyantly, no exceptions.

Welcome Helen and Joyce!! Thank you for your introductions and suggestions. Keep um' coming!! Everyone seems to be doing those turbo jam DVD's...I'm thinking I need to pick one up. I've always been a Tae-Bo chick.

Have you seen that Richard Simmons Sweatin' to the Oldies is out on DVD as well?! I'm so gonna get me a copy! Me and my mom use to work out together and they were a blast!!

Hi everyone and it's great to meet each of you.

Lesley invited me to the team and I am really excited about it. Thank you Lesley!!!

Name: Helen

Where are you from: Southwestern Pennsylvania, USA

What are your goals: I would really like to be the healthiest I can be!!

What's your favorite exercise: I enjoy walking, bike riding, Bootcamp Video workouts, especially the stretching, and playing with McKenzie.

What has been the hardest part of sticking to it:
Having to constantly make not only healthy choices but keeping protein to 50 grams per day AND carbs to 150 grams.

How can we as a team support you and keep you motivated:
Leave comments on my spark page, send me an ocassional goodie or a spark mail. Maybe a swift kick to the butt as needed. lol

My spark page tells my story if anyone is interested. Many things have been happening to me...I am a miracle child of God.

Making all the right healthy choices as possible, always surrounded by food and temptations, exercising regularly. lack of confidence and the believe that i can get there and being focused

read posts and comment and contribute regularly, give me a kick in the butt or send me a mesage say i am doing great or anyting you think would help would be the key for me, making friends here

Hello Team!

I'm a new co-leader. My name is Joanna. I'm originally from Hawaii but currently living in Las Vegas. My goal is to lose about 25 to 30 lbs. My favorite exercise is the elliptical trainer. As long as I've got some tunes I can go on for days on that thing!! I'm good about exercising. My weak point is fast food. I love to eat out and I hate portion control. I eat til' I'm stuffed which is a big no-no.

I need help! Ahhhh!

Hi All...

As you know, we are new leaders, and just starting out here. Also, there are quite a few new members coming on board. In order for us to meet all of the wonderful people who make up the Win @ Losing team, how about we introduce ourselves, or re-introduce ourselves here so we can get to know each other better!

I'll Start....

Name: Chris

Where R U From: The 808 State Hawaii

What are your goals: I'd like to lose about 40 pounds, so 10 down 30 to go.

What's your fave exercise: I like to dance cuz it doesn't feel like I'm exercising, and I can just keep goin and going and goin!!

What has been the hardest part of sticking to it: Just having to be consistent in keeping up with posting, exercising, making good choices.. it's a lot for someone whose used to doing whateva, eating whateva.. U know!! But, so far so good!!

How can we as a team support you and keep you motivated: I think reading everyones posts, getting advice and seeing positive, enthusiastic attitudes.. mixed with a BIG dose of FUN!! That'll do it for me!
