Hi. My name is Barb, and I have been a member of SP for 7 months. This site has helped me so much. I have learned to eat healthier, and to take care of myself. I have also met a lot of wonderful people. I joined this team because I have realized that we are all "winners". I want to get to know other people who feel this way, or are trying to feel that way. The leader, Judy, is someone I have gotten to know, and I know any of the teams she is a leader in, she does a marvelous job. I am looking forward to becoming an active member!! emoticon

Hi, I'm Vicki. I'm 56 years old and I have 65 lbs to reach a weight where I can get off of blood pressure pills, and hopefully have more energy.
I've been a member of sparkpeople a number of times over the last few years and always let my emotions get the best of me and I'd leave for one reason or the other. But I'm here to stay this time around and noone will make me leave because of something they say to me to hurt my feelings. I have to learn to ignore such talk and work towards a healthier me.
I look forward to getting to know you.

I'm Amy, and I have a large amount of weight to lose. I like walking as my primary exercise but as I've gotten bigger, walking for any length of time is very hard for me to do. Any added support is appreciated.
I'm trying to cut out most processed foods and eat closer to nature. The simpliar, the better.
Thanks

Hi I am Lisa and I am 23 years old. I am currently at 138 lbs and still working on getting to my goal weight of 130 lbs. I am an early childhood educator and I love to read, exercise, and hang out with friends. I love this site as well, it has been awesome for support and information on weight loss. Hope to meet all of you soon :) take care emoticon

....and my parents call me "boo" which is pretty coincidental. Happy to have met a couple more "boos" out there emoticon

Hello Winning Circle!

Thanks for the invite Marj! So I re-started SparkPeople today with the intent that I am going to finally get serious about losing weight. I was on SparkPeople a few years ago but like most of the fad-diets I have tried over the years, I'd get gun-ho about it in the beginning, then slowly but surely die out after a few weeks and then that was it, it was over. This time however, I can't stop till I get down to a healthy weight. So with that in mind, thanks again for the invite, and I look forward to be being inspired and being an inspiration myself to any and all within in this team.

Hello! I turned 45 and suddenly started putting on the weight. I have absolutely NO willpower and I'm hoping I can turn that around. I don't have a lot of free time between work, the dogs, my hubby and remodeling the house but I'll try to make sure I check in at least once a day if only for a few minutes. Thank you for inviting me!

And it harm none, do as you will

This is my second time with SP and I am determined to be successful. I live in the interior of British Columbia, where the temperatures are starting to cool down. I've begun walking about 5 km (3 miles) daily in the morning, taking my camera while looking for pictures. My stress level has plummeted!

Hello! My name is Mandy and I am in the Milwaukee, WI area...I have been fighting this battle for a while, and was actually successful for a bit and then the weight started to creep back again, so here I am!! I'm trying to get into running (it's a goal of mine, no make that a DREAM) and I just want to be active and live each day to the fullest.

I'm looking forward to having people to hold me a bit accountable (eek!) but also support me and know what I'm going through. I wish you all luck and I hope I can help you as well!

Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're probably right.--Henry Ford

Hi Team,
I am new to this team but not to SP. I joined with a 50# loss goal and have lost 8# so far. But, I have smartened up my eating and exercise and sleeping behaviors so I count those more as wins. The weight loss will happen in time.
I am 56, live in Northern California, married for second time, mother to a 26-year-old son in the Army. He is stationed in Colorado now but will be on his way to Germany in October. I also have 3 dogs that keep me walking daily. Fav exercises are walking, jogging, cycling, weight training and elliptical. Menopause put my weight on and after being slender my adult life, this excess 50 pounds is a shock. I am not used to being viewed as invisible! From slender to overweight is another galaxy of social treatment.
In a rush so that is it for now. Happy to be here with all you winners!



Each day we begin again.

Hello all,

I am New to this website. I joined this group because I know I am a winner.
I did the best thing in my life. I decided to make a change in my life and start losing the weight. My long term goals are to be 100 lbs lighter.... My short term goals are to keep the mind set " I CAN DO THIS" emoticon

Rejoined, new user name...
I'm Vicki, 56, with about 50 lbs to lose. I've actually got 100 lbs to lose but I've set a goal of 50 lbs for my birthday next August. That will get me under 200 lbs and will get me off the blood pressure pills I'm taking now. And I think it'll give me a lot more energy to push forward and lose the rest.

Hi everyone, I joined this team, because I AM A WINNER! Although I am far from my ultimate goal, I have achieved several non-scale victories. I have health problems that are constantly interfering with my goals, but I keep on keeping on. I'm in it to win it! The most important thing that I've learned throughout this process, is to be patient with myself. emoticon

Thank you so much for inviting me to join this group Marj. Hello members, my name is Denise.
I am almost 41. I have a 18yr old son who is with the California Conservation Corps. Also have a 17yr beautiful daughter who almost 3yrs ago made me a grandmother.. This is the second time I've been on this site. I'm not good at consistency. Bth my kids are not in home so now I am making it my time. This is and has to be the time I loose this weight and get healthy. I want to be around to watch my grandson grow up and also see my kids accomplish their goals. I would love to have friends here to check in with and also be a ear to listen or a voice to encourage.. So again thank you for inviting me.. emoticon

Hi everyone. I'm Haley Brooke. I actually joined the team about a week ago, but I'm just now getting to the social side of things here on the site. I'm a 19-year-old college student and I'm finally taking my health into my own hands and trying to get things under control. I'm fairly shy so there's a good chance you won't see me posting around here on the boards much, but I am open to chatting and meeting new people. Good luck to everyone with their goals, and thank you for inviting me to the group Marj. ^^

Hi! My name is Sarah and I am a renewed sparkpeople user. I joined the site a few years back and lost a lot of weight but as I got busy finishing my degree, finding a job and moving from place to place I gained it all back and then some. Now I am back again to lose weight and get healthy for good! My motivation is my wedding that is coming up in October 2013. I am very excited about this!

I saw that Dorothy from Pa joined and that it has a small amount of members so I am giving this a try. Trying to find a small enough group that I can fit in with and get to know people and that is active..
My name is Wanda. I just lost my job about 2 weeks ago and did get a package to last me until October. I am going to throw my energy into building our business up and pray that I do not have to go back to a 9-5 job very exciting, scary and everything in between emoticon We have a home inspection business and I have to believe it is making a come back as far as people purchasing homes again.
We have been married forever as we met in the great rock n roll years and have managed to make it through just about everything.
We have two living children and one grandbaby and one on the way! Three fur babies that are a lot of fun.
So I am here to get below 200 and never go back and really struggling. So that is me

Hi, I'm Bob,
I have spent the last three years here with SparkPeople losing weight, "Kicking ASthma, COPD and lung cancer. I am in better shape now than I ever was before I got sick and am striving to see how far I can go.I am fortunate in that my surgeon(before he became a thoractic surgeon) used to train triathletes so between SparkPeople & my surgeon, I'm in
good hands. (of course Marj's positive attitude sure helps too). emoticon

Hi my name is Josie and I am new to spark people. I just got engaged and want to get in great shape so that I can fit into my dream wedding gown. I am not very self motivated and am looking for a support system. I am also open to challenges and any suggestions and ideas for losing weight. Thank you all and good luck.

Hi all! This morning I found a Spark Mail invite from WhisperingPine7 to this team and it looks interesting so I am joining. I just turned 65, which is frightening to say because I do not think of myself as that old. I have been here at Spark People on and off since 2009. I have never been terribly overweight, but was seeing it inch upwards as I got older. I was a runner in my late thirties and all through my forties, but can no longer run due to chronic injuries. So now I walk and use Spark People as a motivation tool for building fitness and maintaining a healthy weight. Thank you for the invitation to this team. Nancy emoticon

Focusing on the positive.

Nancy

Hey All! I'm new to team. I've been on SP just over a month. I've lost 7 pounds, with a lot more to go! I'm determined to be healthy! I could use some encouragement.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me
Philippians 4:13

No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and He will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide a way out, that you may be able to endure it.

I'm the heaviest I've ever been in my life and it's time I get back to a weight I know will be healthier for me. I'm working towards getting down to 185 lbs. I won't be thin but I'll be much healthier than I am now.

Hello, everyone!

I've been on sparkpeople for about a month now. I've been delaying any big changes until I'm settled in my own place. I sign the lease on June 15th and move the month after that. I'll be able to control my eating environment then!

I'm looking forward to getting to know you all!

Hello All,

I'm new to SP. I took some time off from working out (about a year) and put on some unwanted weight. I started jogging and hitting the gym again about a month ago. I'm somewhat determined as I work out every day. I do at least an hour of cardio 6 days a week and do strength training at least 3 days a week. I do crunches and situps daily. I'm training for a Tough Mudder event in October.

Howdy! I'm so excited to be a part of this group! There are none like it that are regularly active so I love the idea of helping this one keep going! I was doing very well for a while not drinking during the week (it's way too easy to skip my early morning workouts when I do) & drinking moderately on the weekends, but now am slipping back into my old daily drinking habits. This invite came at the perfect time, it seems. Thank you & I look forward to being here emoticon

Hi there! Call me gingersnap, if you please!

I am seeking a life of balance with food and alcohol. My past is riddled with mistakes and addiction issues, but for the past 4 years I have been on a very positive path. I'm looking to get a grasp and maintain a moderate relationship with alcohol, once my closest friend and worst enemy.

Looking forward to using this group to help myself as well as help others!
