I'm Janice from Miami, FL...Married to a "superstar" - Elvis Presley look a like hubby. He does Elvis Gigs & Parties ---singing telelgrams too! We have two grown children, which was just here visiting us. My DD converted to Jewish religion....has our 2 adorable Grandsons. Our son is living in CA.....wants to become a singer. I've been here with SparkPeople for at least 12 years.......Had cancer in 2011. Surviving from it now. Had lost at least 60 lbs while not being able to eat for 6 months. Had a feeding tube (ensure). But some of it has creeped back on now and need to get this weight off.

emoticon My name is Latisha. I am a wife and a mother. I work part-time as a secretary and I write in my spare time for my Renew Inspiration Blog. I just joined this team because I was drawn in by the name - Peace & Love! I have been in the Spark People family for about 4 1/2 years and I participate often. I even created my own Spark Team called Embrace The Weight Loss Journey. I love to write and encourage others. As I lift you up, then I become lifted up. I also participate in the 5% Challenges (Challenge Leader for the Rowdy Rebels) and Biggest Loser Challenges (Extra Leader for the Emerald GEMS). I have to be honest, I have not lost a lot of weight while participating often, but I have changed a lot of my bad habits and I do recognize my shortcomings. I have come to believe that change is a process and if I continue pressing my way forward I will arrive at my destination just when I need to arrive. Each day I will continue to be my own inspiration.

Here's a link to my Renew Inspiration Blog:

Hello from the northwest corner of the contiguous United States! Been around SP for a couple of years and (hopefully) been more serious this year. Certainly more active.

I found the team through the lovely article on Jamie and am inspired by her and love the energy of this team. It seems like a positive, uplifting group.

I'm also in it for the puns.

Edit to add lovely article on Jamie, in case anyone missed it.

Hi friends! I'm a long-time sparker who has lost and gained the same 40 pounds or so several times, and need to lose a lot more. But I'm back with the program and feeling good. I am 62 and live in central Missouri in the country. I am a widow as of a year, and I have 4 grown kids and one grandson. I have 3 chickens and 2 cats. I am trying to establish a regular meditation habit to increase the peace in my own heart. emoticon

I believe that I am less likely to procrastinate if I change my "wish" to "will", my "like to" to "try to", and my "have to" to "want to".

HI all - I have been looking for a team that i am not just a number - not just a member (this is also my fault) - form friendships and support teams and be the same to my co-team members.

Hi, my name is Jennifer (Jenn) I have been married for almost 20 years and I have twin boys that are entering into HS this Sept. We also have 2 shelter brother & sister (another set of twins) German Shepard mixed pups that will be 1yr in Sept - we have had them for 6 months now. Other then trying a lot of time succeeding (when are not looking) to eat our couch that was new last November - they are doing great.

My walking buddies.

I work as an office manager about 42 hrs a week - it does take its toll but very grateful I have it - :) so my days and nights are super busy.

Now i need to find the peace and love for me - I have a lot of that around me - but i do not extend that to myself love and peace - time to change that.

Thank you for the goodie - it is nice to meet all of you! Have a great day!

Jenn emoticon emoticon

I am new in this team.
I find peace and love is a positive approach to myself and others
I have shifted my car with an electric bicycle. This is quite a challenge as I live in a rather rural area in Denmark. But a lot more densely populated than American standards and with better public transportation.
And lately I have begun a soup diet which is American but I saw it in Denmark where I live
Recently my weight went down to 87.2 kg and my liver number went down to max of normal so I would like to stay this slim or slimmer
Here is a picture from near my home

Hi My name Julie and I am 45 years old and married with a 16 year old daughter. I have been on sparkpeople for awhile, but come back and forth with it. I lost 45 pounds about 7 years ago and then gained it back and then some. Trying to get back into and also much older now is much harder. Would like to lose 60 pounds or so. Glad to be here and can't wait to get to know everyone.

I hope there is room here for one more seeker of Peace and Love. My name is Candy, I am 55, a wife, mother and grandmother. I work full time as the training officer at a state correctional facility for women. I had gastric sleeve surgery in November of 2017. (I hope that isn't an issue for anyone.) I am feeling awesome, but still need the fellowship that Sparkpeople brings to keep me focused. I look forward to getting to know each of you and cheering you on throughout your journey. emoticon

Hi I'm Monique or Mo. I've been on SPARK for 10 actual years now. I'm much better off than when I started but I'm still not where I want to be. I'm attracted to the Hippie vibe of this team & hope being with like-minded people sparks my spark. LOL!
