I was going to join this team, but it doesn't appear to be active. I had to join in order to check it out, no offense-but, I prefer more active teams. Good luck.

Thank you for the invite! emoticon

My name is Susan, and I've been a Sparker since July 2010. Just made goal on Friday--63#'s gone [46#'s with SparkPeople].

Glad to be here.

I want to share with you what I had for lunch today because it was SO, SO YUMMY! This is BY FAR one of the best creations! I got some Italian Rose Mango Salsa the other day at Sam's and some WONDERFUL whole wheat tortillas called: Santa Fe Tortilla Company Homestyle Whole Grain Tortillas [they are THE BEST]. Today I took light whipped cream cheese and spread it on the tortilla. Then topped with 5 sliced black olives. Then put 4 tbs of the mango salsa and 55 grams of smashed avocado [tried slicing it the other day but it kept sliding out of the wrap] and 1 slice of turkey breast meat. SMOTHERED the whole thing in 1 cup of fresh uncooked spinach and wrapped it up. Cut it in half and SAVORED every single bite! Oh, my goodness, the combination of tastes was amazing! Kind of higher in calories and fat: 409 calories and 22 grams of fat but I didn't eat anything else with it. I'm pretty full, so next time I think I'll just put 30 grams of avocado instead of 55 grams].

Thanks again for letting me be part of this team!

Well I am back on board.

To be completely honest, I don't really feel like I deserve to be in this group right now. I haven't been very motivational in the past year (mostly because I have been largely absent).

I can and will do better. Starting with one blog comment a day on someone else's blog. Let's start with a newbie...

Once I have achieved that I will try the three blog posts per week!

After joining SP in Sept. 2007 and losing over 42 lbs, I lost my way on this journey towards a healthier me. I have come and gone a few times on SP, but just didn't have my heart into it and let the stress going on around me pull me down. I am back now and have a new attitude and resolve to go forward in this journey and make this the best year ever!

Hi. My name's Annie and I'm honoured to be in such inspiring company. I believe that finding SP has changed my life. It's played a very big part in my rehabilitation after critical illness last year. I'm so grateful to have a new lease of life - quite literally.

Thanks to all Motivators for playing such a positive role in SP.

My name is kenny. i have been a member of spark since jan8 2009. in the year plus since i joined i have lost 145 lbs. i was named a spark people motivator right after my first year for overall weight lost. i have also recently become a co leader of the SparkBoston team.

A few weeks ago i also received an email from public relations asking about my interest in being available for national media. and then he asked about being included in the negotiations with the DR. Oz show. so i am really excited about the prospect of helping to Spread the word about SparkPeople.

Hi everyone!
I've been lurking for a while... time to introduce myself!

I'm 35, living in NJ (hence the _NJ in my sig). I'm actully Canadian (but somehow putting _NJ_CAN seemed excessive, ya know?).

I used to be a high school teacher, but now I teach astronomy to teachers. So I'm a big astronomy fan :-)!

I've been on spark since April 2007, and I love it, although I've been slacking lately.

Anyhow, glad to be here and thanks for the invite to join the team!

Hello team! I live in Brazil and have been a SPerson since March 2006. So far Ive lost 40 lbs, gained back 10, changed from size 20+ to 12-14! Its been challenging to stick with it - Ive hit many plateaus and faced lots of emotional ups and downs. I can say that I am finally not-depressed - a huge victory! My experience has changed from a weightloss journey to a fitness and well-being journey that I plan to stick to for the rest of my earthly life!

It's what makes SP work for so many... that no matter what your personal situation, there is always someone here who has things in common so that we're never completely alone. Looking forward to getting to know you better.

I have lost ALOT of weight pre-Spark and successfully maintained it for years.

Then I tackled another goal, getting under 200. I lost more and gained a few back, but by the end of the year, I finally got under 200 and was thrilled!!! I maintained that for a while then slacked off slowly and sneaked over 200.

I started telling a friend of my plan for my "Final Fitness Year Plan." Nov 08 - 09 would be my final fitness year; whatever my weight is by my birthday this year I will maintain for the rest of my life, no slacking. Bi-weekly weigh in for maintenance reality checks.

She introduced me to Spark in Jan 08, I started using it just in time for my personal challenge, Oct 08 and weighed in at 204. So far on Spark, -25 plus one pound... and still moving. Not to focused on an exact number, when I get down to my last 10 pounds, I am going to decide where I want to be.

Call me Homie, everyone on Spark does emoticon

Each one reach one, then no one will be left behind; we are in this together, and it's not just about weight loss, it's about life.

Nov 3rd 2010 thru Nov 3rd 2011, a day NOT exercised to my BEST potential is a day I SIMPLY wasted.

"Use what you got to get the body you want, no equipment, no excuses. Walking is free." My personal quote when all I could do was walk.

Come on, let's do it together.

Thanks for the invite. I am I think an optimistic motivator. Anyway, have not lost as much weight as I set for myself in the beginning. But I did not take into account some of my medical and physical limitations. I have lost 25 lbs. and 19 inches since mid May of last year. Off some of my medications and feel so much better. So my journey may take me longer, in fact it will never be over. But I love the results I am getting. I think Spark is one of the best things that has ever happened to help people achieve a healthy lifestyle and it is free. That is just so terrific. My son told me about it. emoticon to all of you.

I'm Steve from Pa. I have been a member of Spark since 2007. I lost over 70 pounds while using this site!!! I believe that you can do anything if you put your mind to it. This site is very useful for anyone who wants to lose weight or just live a healthier lifestyle. I have met many great people on this site. I hope that I am able to help or inspire some of you. I am not on here daily but I try to keep up with the site as best as I can.

Feel free to check out my Sparkpage or send me a Sparkmail. I am also on yahoo messenger.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Hi Everybody!! Sheenadee, Dennis, thanks for the invite! This is a great time to meet all my fellow motivators because I'm going to need some myself in the next few months. After being terrified of it for the last 2 years I've finally decided to attempt, no conquer P90X.
Looking forward to giving and getting some great motivation here. emoticon

Hello! I'm Donna and I lost a lot of weight with the help of SP and my friends here. Since January, I have kinda gotten away from tracking and posting, and my weight has gone up,,,no big surprise. So, now that the weather is nice, I feel renewed motivation, and I'm ready to commit again to tracking daily and exercising regularly again. I am looking forward to motivating the motivators! Once I get going,,,I am pretty persistant about motivating others! Let's go team!!!

Donna :)

I know I am under there somewhere!

Morning Sunshines!

Although I joined last week I wanted to say hi and thank you for the invite :) I've been with Spark for over a year and live in So. California.

Absolutely tickled to be part of such a great group of motivators. I'm looking forward to getting to you all better.

Have a great week!

Thx 4 the Invite!- though I feel I've done little to Motivate, especially where my Teams are concerned! Other than being too hard headed to roll-over & give up through out my Weight Loss Journey- cause its still a Rough Road Traveled! I am honored to be thought a Spark Motivator & invited to this Team. I hope to contribute & learn with all of you.

Hey All!
I am not sure how long I have been a member but it is nice to be considered a motivational member.

I have been in recovery from food addiction and alcoholism for 17 years now and I have been able to get into figure competitions without being in my addictions. I work with another sister in recovery who has done shows and I stay accountable to her with my food plan and training.

I have a website for people like me: www.fit2give.com and I love helping people and giving back as well as passing on my experience, strength and hope on my journey.

Who would have thunk that I would get a life without selling out to food, especially.

I am a fitness trainer and vocal artist and have a private studio in my current hometown and sing two nights a week at an upscale City Grill in downtown.

I have two beautiful cats and a blessed life.

Glad to be a part of the team and look forward to getting to know everyone.

Blessings,
Nyla

Hey everyone..
My name is Patty.. and I have been Sparkin for a little over 2 years..
You cannot imagine my surprise when I found out I was nominated a Motivator...I struggle just like everyone else here, and I just find myself relating to blogs and pages, and just leave comments to push them through..never in a million years did I think I would be nominated, after all my weight loss has not been what it should..
Like I said I am a struggler...
I am delighted to be here though and I look for many more people to push, motivate, encourage, support and just allow a rant or two..

I joined this team a few days ago but am just now introducing myself (even tho I have been huddling and reading blogs, etc.) I think it's a great idea for us motivators to get to know each other as I am sure there are times when we may need a little motivation as well.

As far as my back story goes, my cancer has been in remission for quite some time now and my biggest problems seem to be my basement getting sunk in 16 inches of red mud followed by pot issues with my teenage son. But hey, I have learned there are things in life that I can control and things that I can't and why focus on the latter when there is nothing you can do about that!

HI MY NAME IS STARPEACE. I LOST 400 PLUS POUNDS 3 TIMES. THIS LAST TIME IT HAS BEEN SLOWER DUE TO STOMACH ISSUES. I HAVE BEEN ON SP FOR 2 YEARS I BELIEVE. I LEARNED A LOT AND STILL LEARNING DIFFERENT THINGS REGARDING WEIGHT TRAINING VS CARDIO.ALL I KNOW IS I HAVE TO CONTINUE TO FIGHT. I CANNOT GIVE UP. WORKOUTS ARE A GREAT STRESS RELIEVER FOR ME.I HAVE A LOT NOW.IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN A CONNECTION TO GOD WITH ME.AS MUCH AS I WORK OUT I SHOULD BE O POUNDS. IF YOU STAY FOCUSED, DETERMINED,MOST OF ALL PATIENT WHICH IS SO HARD SOMETIMES YOU WILL GET TO YOUR GOAL.I HAVE LEARNED BETTER TO STOP BEING MY WORST ENEMY. IF A DAY COMES AND I CAN'T WORKOUT I DON'T STRESS AS MUCH NOW. STRESS JUST LEADS TO WEIGHT LOSS! ANYTHING THAT YOU WANT BADLY SAY A NEW HOME OR CAR YOU HAVE TO MAKE SACRIFICES. THE SAME WITH WEIGHT LOSS GO WITH THE FLOW AND MAINTAIN IT AS YOU WOULD WANT TO KEEP YOUR HOME.

If you keep starting and keep starting you are a winner all the way through to the end. Keep your motivation,focus,determination!!!!! Your goal will come faster then you think!!!!!!

Hi Everybody,

I'm Kim and have been on SparkPeople for almost a year and have never missed a day of logging in - nutrition, fitness, and posting. I did start out to lose weight, but have stayed because of the people

When I started I had already been losing weight for about 4 months and was "stuck" for the umpteenth million times, but didn't want to spend any money on another "diet" site, program, you name it!! I started on My Fitness Pal and a friend told me about SparkPeople.

I am now almost 75 pounds down, have met some incredible friends and have found a "home" that I will have to live at for the rest of my life. After I get to goal I think I will need Spark more than ever....keeping it off has eluded me all my life!!

I already love the sense of humor from this team....can't wait to meet all of you!!

Kim

Hi there from Ontario Canada. I joined in January 2006 after a friend told me about this site. She since has quit the site due to the volume of emails. If you go to my SparkPage you will understand this next statement a little more, but I'm not so much looking for weight loss as I am a constant healthy lifestyle. The amount of meds I am on cause weight gain and there is nothing I can do about that, so I eat right, get the exercise I need and keep a positive attitude. Once every 3 months my doctor weighs me, but weight loss to him is not as important as trying, eating right, getting what exercise my body will allow me etc. I have 32 medical conditions and take meds for most of them. But that doesn't stop me. I still get out for walks and usually clean my apartment every other day. And I am much like my father in that I sweat a lot. So working with my doctor, I follow his advice and he helps me with the confidence when I feel like I'm getting nowhere when it comes to losing weight. I'm happily divorced without children for medical reasons and am for the most part a very happy and positive, outgoing person.

I have been a member of spark people since 12/07 right after I retired. I enjoy the camaraderie on the boards chatting with all the members. Everyone is so friendly, possible because we are all more or less in the same boat. I enjoy encouraging other as well as them encouraging me. I truly believe that this is a life style way of eating for the rest of our lives. Encouraging others to exercise or to just walk or keep moving is just as important as eating healthy foods and watching our portions. What is not to like. Spark People Rock.

Skinny Dipping . . .

An elderly man in Louisiana had owned a large farm for several years. He had a large pond in the back. It was properly shaped for swimming, so he fixed it up nice with picnic tables, horseshoe courts, and some apple, and peach trees.

One evening the old farmer decided to go down to the pond, as he hadn't been there for a while, and look it over. He grabbed a five-gallon bucket to bring back some fruit.

As he neared the pond, he heard voices shouting and laughing with glee.
As he came closer, he saw it was a bunch of young women skinny-dipping in his pond.
He made the women aware of his presence and they all went to the deep end. One of the women shouted to him, 'we're not coming out until you leave!'

The old man frowned, 'I didn't come down here to watch you ladies swim naked or make you get out of the pond naked.'

Holding the bucket up he said, 'I'm here to feed the alligator.'

Some old men can still think fast.

I regret to say that I am not finding a fit for myself here as a member of this team. I am more of a coach and mentor than a cheerleader. I am not one to twitter, blog, join facebook or myspace. I think it best to stick with my teams and students then continue to post on the forums whan I feel I have something to add. Stay safe everyone.

Edited by: SERGEANTMAJOR at: 5/15/2009 (17:36)

It is called WORK-ing out for a reason.

I said getting fit was simple, I did not say it was easy.

Cardio burns calories, strength work burns fat.

Eat well to lose weight, exercise to get fit

You can not build a six pack using twelve packs


Often when we seek a magic bullet for fitness we end up shooting ourselves in the foot.
