Hello, Joyce! Glad you joined the team! My first son was born in Portland, OR!

I realized after coming to read Joyce's introduction, that I hadn't introduced myself! OOPS!

My name is Jerri, I've been married for 43 years to a man I met on a blind date. We have 3 children who are all off on their own with a total of 7 grandchildren. I have a dog, Gigi, and a cat Cassie.

I've been active on Spark since 2016, tho a member much longer, and have successfully lost over 40#, however, some of them I found again. Currently I am about 6# over my goal weight. My fitness goal is to do at least 30 min of cardio a day and 15 min of strength training. Walking/hiking with Gigi in the summer and snowshoeing in the winter are my go to activities, using my Fitbit. Eating within my SP range each day, with lower fats and lots of freggies, makes up my eating plan.

For every decision I am faced with, I need only to make one good choice. It's that easy. Choose the best in this moment!

Hi, my name is Joyce, I live in Florence OR, been married almost 55 years to my Soul mate, we have 3 children, 10 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. I am working on a healthy life style, not a diet. I want to remain independent as I grow older. I am active in church and red hatters, enjoying having fun and going to lunch with friends.
I found this team when visiting a another team mates page. Looking forward to getting to know each of you and part take in the goals of the team.

Hi! I'm Casper or CAS. I live in MD. Will be married 34 years this summer. We have two grown daughters, both in Graduate school. In January, I decided it was time I addressed my eating issues, so I committed myself to Spark. I am a person that reaches for food when I get stressed or upset, sometimes without even realizing it. When my dad was dying of alzheimers, I really got heavy. Now, it is a few years later and I can't stand it anymore. I am 100 lbs overweight. I do not like being heavy. It keeps me from doing things I want to do. So, I am Sparking to take back my life from the bad habits I have let take hold. Since January, I have kept an eye on my eating habits, joined a few challenges that have helped me, and decided that this team, with its challenges, could be motivational for me. Maybe short term goals could become life changing!.......

Hello, my name is Hope, and I'm from Alabama. I happened upon your challenges by randomly reading Kenttuppence's blog one day. I joined both challenges this month because I'm trying to establish a habit of regular exercise. I just found out that the challenges were related to this team. I'm looking forward to being a part of the team!

Hi! I'm Martha from Indiana. I have a husband, 2 grown daughters, and a dog. One daughter has 3 toddler foster children, so I'm sort of a grandma, too. I have weighed in the 160's since last fall, and if I don't lose 20 pounds, none of my summer clothes will fit. I'm working hard at the exercise, which I think is fun. But I cannot seem to stick to an eating plan. I can be perfect for a few days at a time, then go on a binge.

Hi,

I'm from NC and have been overweight pretty much since I was a teenager, but it became worse over the last ten years. I've been on diets multiple times throughout the years, even considered surgery, but in the end I feel it would be best to make this a lifestyle change that not only affects me, but my parents as well, since I cook for them. I started this journey in 2015 and managed to lose 60 pounds but then due to stress eating and injuries that kept me from the gym for almost a year, I have gained all that back. I am working hard again to lose and keep off the weight. I hope that I can find some great support and help in this group.

Hello.... I'm from Washington State. I have 5 children. Most of them are now grown. But, three still live at home. I'm in my late 40's. I keep hitting 240 lbs and then going on a diet and losing sometimes a lot--- as it varies throughout the years. Then, I just start slowly gaining it back until I hit around 240 and start the whole process over again. I want this to be the last time I do this rollercoaster ride. Thanks for all the help
