Hi, I'm Rebecca and I just joined today. I need to lose 35 pounds. I also have a chronic illness and the healthier I become the easier it will be to fight that.

I'm so glad to see that I'm not the only person NOT new to SparkPeople. Honestly, this is like my 27th time. I join, track for awhile, slack off, and then start over. Sigh... Back at it though!

I live in Dayton, OH, which is what inspired my username (area code 937).

My goal ticker says I want to get down to 174 lbs. That would actually only take me from "obese" to "overweight" on the BMI chart (which I have my own opinions about anyway), but 174 is a comfortable weight for me. My husband and I are trying to get pregnant, so I'm just aiming for a more healthy weight. Once I get to that point, who knows!

I look forward to getting to know all of you and adding you as SparkFriends... as soon as I get around to making my own page!

Good luck, all!

I friended you on both! I thought your pup looked like a whippet, but since mine was a mutt in whippet's clothing, I didn't want to assume. After thinking she was for so long, I did a bit of reading on them, and they are so sweet and cute, now I TOTALLY want one.

Skains, I went to Tulane! I MISS NOLA so much. I was just thinking this morning on my commute how much I miss the lifestyle down there.

Liam, welcome! I hope you are getting treatment for your depression. It's debilitating. I quit smoking about five years ago, and it was the best thing I ever did!

Welcome Skains! I hope Sparkpeople helps you like it has helped many people on this site. Btw you can get lots of great recipes from SparkRecipes. I think that's one of my favorite things about this website :)

And hi Liam, I am sorry you have been battling depression. I've known many people who have and it is a heard battle to do on your own, but hopefully you find some great friends on this site to help keep you motivated, and you find some great SparkTeams that give you insight to other people who have/are battling and what they are doing to help beat it.

This is my first time on SparkPeople. I found this site looking for nutrition calculator.
Originally from north Louisiana, I have lived on the Northshore near New Orleans for more than 20 years. Skains is my maiden name, thus skainsgirl.
My goal is to lose at least 25 pounds by changing my lifestyle.

Hi everyone! My name is Nadine and I am returning to spark, and hopefully staying for a bit! Its been about a year and a half since I logged into my old account. I decided to create a whole new sparkpage for myself, just to start off fresh! I will eventually hop back on my old one, but I need a little kick start to my motivation and sometimes starting off fresh and clean does the trick!

Hi, Boop! emoticon Welcome back to SparkPeople! I'm assuming it's "Welcome Back" because you seem so knowledgeable about everything already! =) I'm similar! Married, no kids, but only one pup. What kind of dogs do you have? I have a mutt. She looks like a whippet, but I did a doggie DNA test on her, and she's 25% Toy Fox Terrier, and then 12.5% a bunch of other stuff, like Cocker Spaniel, Chinese Crested, Poodle.... Here's a pic!

I have never been to Arizona, but I have SUCH a crush on the American Southwest! I think you're so lucky!

Hi - my name's Amber! I just joined today. emoticon

Where are you from/Where do you live? From Columbus, Ohio currently living in the Phoenix area, Arizona. I miss my buckeye state so much!

Is this your first time on SparkPeople? No, I was a member a few years ago but didn't stick with it.

How did you pick your SparkName? "Peace will win, fear will lose" - one of my favorite song lyrics and I'll be 35 next year

How did you find SparkPeople? A web search for weight loss info a long time ago.

What are your goals? To get to and maintain a healthy weight, have more energy, be a better example for my children, inspire my husband to join me on this journey, and get rid of all the chronic pain and medications I take.

Amber from Phoenix, AZ

Good Afternoon Everyone,

A special thanks right off the bat to BEATLETOT for the warm welcome you've already extended me on my spark-page!

My name is Samantha. I'm currently in Kansas City, Missouri. This is definitely not the first time I've been on SP; however, I'm planning on it being the last. Hopefully this will stick (hence the screen name)! My goals include; losing weight, gaining confidence and friendships, increasing energy and simply losing some of my aches and pains!

Looking forward to getting to know and kicking tush with you all! *Hugs* emoticon

My name is Brenda, and my SparkName is a nickname my auntie gave me in high school when I was obsessed with the Beatles. I live in Northern Virginia in a suburb of Washington, DC.

I joined SparkPeople in 2007 and found it when someone mentioned it in the comments of a news article. I was tired of gaining weight during graduate school. I've had lots of ups and downs, but at this time have lost over 40 pounds using the Nutrition Tracker and staying in the range that SparkPeople recommended. I still want to lose another 15-20 pounds of fat and build up 5-10 pounds of muscle. I know that with SparkPeople, I can do it.

I'm 4'10.5". A normal BMI for my height tops out at 121.
