Hi everyone -

I am new to the team also! After I was invited by LEAPFROG, I checked it out, and I really like what y'all are doing here. I can relate more to doing a few little things throughout the day than I can to having people tell me to fit in 2 hours of gym time every day. So, here we go!

Maureen

Inspire me. Really.

Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs build the ark. Professionals built the Titanic.

I am new to this team and I LOVE all the motivation and words of encouragement!!! The reason behind my motivation to lose weight is that my husband and I are adopting a baby who will arrive via C-Section on February 12. I want to start living a healthier lifestyle for her. My husband and I are very active- I teach Zumba 4 times a week and he disc golfs...but our choice of foods aren't healthy at all. I am so ready for the challenge!!! Looking for a buddy to help me a long the way!

Hi, all!

I was invited to this team by LEAPFROG95 and came to check it out.

I just read a thread and loved it, so I'm in!

This sounds like an incredibly enthusiastic team :) emoticon

I will have my 1yr Sparkversary in a week (!!!) and have lost 50 lbs (2x what I hoped for last January when this all seemed like a 'pipe-dream'. I enjoy finding little bits of exercise fitting into my day, so thanks, Mic, for finding me (how??) and inviting me to join the team!!! Off to the gym now for treadmill time before my massage.

Hi 44yr old wife, decided to get serious about this lifestyle called fitness and incorporate it into everything I do. I study read about QF before joining and realize its exactly what I need especially at this desk job, the bathroom and office are great places to set a "Quick Fire". P.S. I need all the help I can get.... emoticon

Good Morning
I dont know how I was found but thanks for the invite! I must admit I was VERY VERY hesitant on joining. I was in the proccess of re-evaluating my commitments on spark because it does take time to log everything. I liked your theme but did not feel I was ready. THEN emoticon I thought you start where you are genius! So I am in. Brief into my name is Dimitria I am a case manager(paper nurse) and I am 49 with 2 daughters 14/24 and my Yorkie Sasha. Been on SP since 2007 did not use it to capacity because I was on WW at the time I lost 30 pounds gained it ALL back so I at it again. Thanks for finding me

Hi QuickFire Challenge team members, I have been a member of sparkpeople since Sept 09, with some progress. However, I am looking for something more!! Unfortunately I bore easily. My name is Mitzi, I am 39 years old, out of shape and was growing each day. This cycle had to stop! So here I am wanting to be challenged to continue on my path for health & fitness!

Hi Team! I'm Vicki a proud mother of 2 amazing boys. My boys and I are greatly enjoying the healthy lifestyle that Sparkpeople taught us... without Spark, I truly don't know what kind of life I would be living. Onto a new bright year and some quickfire challenges to keep it fresh and exciting. Good Luck and Best of Life to All!

hey everyone I am Heather 26 soon to be 27 in 10 days.
I am married to a wonderful man and we have 2 little boys who are 4 and 5... I am aiming to get down to 125 as a long term goal but short term I am aiming for 165.. That is only 20lbs I am giving myself per short term goal.. I hope that makes since.

Small baby step goals to begin with so I don't get discouraged again

Sometimes you get knocked down, but you somehow have to get back up again..

small steps at a time

Nothing taste as good as thin feels

goals:

I have 3 goals

small 175

med 160

large 135

would love to wear a bikini in TN in July on vacation

Hi I just joined the group and am very excited...I think 2010 will be my year to finally shed the weight. I am starting off with a positive attitude knowing I have lost 18 pounds so far since starting spark people I know that I can lose the rest. Hopefully I can navigate around the group and figure out things.

emoticon Hi everyone my name is Elaine and I just joined the group and am excited to get back on track. I started my weight loss journey back in January of 2006 after seeing our 2005 Christmas photos and being horrified of how big I had gotten. It was tough but I managed to go from 246 down to 150 just 5 pounds short of my goal weight. But this past year has been very bad for us we had 3 family members pass and several others were very sick. We also moved 2 times. It has not been a good year for us and I completely lost focus of my eating and my workouts stopped all together. I knew I had put on some pounds because I was having to wear my larger size cloths. I had not weighed in about 6 months and the last time I did I was 167 a 17 pound gain but something that was still manageable. I stepped back on the scale just after Christmas and could not believe it said 200 that was a number I never wanted to see again and that was what it took to get me back on track and on my way to my goal hopefully this will be the last time and I will be able to keep it off this time.
