oh im terrible with numbers too! but spark helps out alot with keeping track of them for you! All you gotta do is take some time to put them in :) look at labels before you buy! And trust me...I know what you mean by the bad food being the cheapest! sucks! lol...but hey our health is more important, so take your time to search for good food. If you have time, cook instead of buying. Im a terrible cook lol but spark has alot of quick and easy recipes. So really, there's no excuse and no one can stop you...other than yourself of course! but you can do it! we're in this together! :)

I'm 24, married for just under 3 months to the love of my life, and I'm too young to be this overweight. I've always been a bigger girl, but for some random reason I started dropping weight like crazy 3 years ago and for a 6 month period I was down to a size 8/10. Of course, just like the weight came off for no reason, it came right back on with again, no change to my diet or exercise.

But now that I've tasted the skinny life, I have a goal in mind, and clothes I'm waiting to fit back into.

So I invite you all to help me with this because I'm terrible with numbers, and don't have a lot of money to throw around in regards to eating right (why is it always the bad food that's cheapest?!). Plus, I'm lactose-intolerant, so that throws a hitch in things too. But any and all help and support is most welcome! emoticon

I will give God all that I have, and when I have nothing, I will give Him this nothingness.

hello all
i am 28 years old and have been overweight for a long time now. I did lose 25 pounds in 2008 but because i didnt do it correctly then i gained it all back. Now i am looking to take that off and more and keep it off. Was doing really well when i first joined but now its a challenge everyday to get out of bed is the biggest challenge.
But with all my spark friends and teams i hope to be more healthy a little at a time

My name is nycki. I am a single mom of an almost 8 yr old little girl.
I am built like my biological fathers side of the family and the yare all obese. I was always the smallest which isnt saying much since i was 270.
i am smaller now than i have bee nsince freshman year in high school.
i need to learn techniques for curbing my eating and snacking. I also need to focus on healthier things to eat.
i was your typical neighborhood fat kid and i want to change that. my daughter is built more like my moms side of the family and she is petite but i know that if we keep eating the way we always had she could just as easily put on weight and i want to be a good role model for her and myself.

Guess I should finally introduce myself since I keep posting here. My name is Amy and I am working towards a new me this year. I need lots of motivation! I am hoping SP will help me find it. There are so many great tools on here. I am looking forward to getting to know everyone. BTW I will post a pic, just haven't gotten the courage to do it yet.

Hello, I am 29 and have three great kids. I have the 'fat' one in my family for as long as I can remember. I remember my mom saying, 'she doesnt need that cookie, she doesnt need a second helping'. Yeah thats going to help me grow up and NOT have issues. Well here I am ready to get all that behind me and look better for me and be healthy for my kids.

Hi everyone. I'm not really new..... just newly determined to do it this time. I'm 32 with a lot to loose. I'm keeping positive this time and have made it a point to look at my life in a different way. HEALTHY! Mentally, Emotionally, Spiritually and Physically. Over the last year and a half I have quit drinking (which was 2 bottles of wine every night), started working on my spiritual path and working on seeing the great things in my life rather than the negative all of the time. I am working of forgiving those that have hurt me and forgiving myself for hurting myself. I've never been skinny. I've been close but that was always a chemically related result. The only time I was skinny was before puberty. And boy was that rough! All in all, I am focused this time and hope to find some friends that feel like their story relates and are positive. May you all have a rockin' healthy life!!!!!!

Hi everyone! I am new to this whole process, but I am so determined to get it together this year. A little about myself: I am 34, never been married (close once), have two wonderful boys, and strive to be a whole new me. I have lost weight, gained it back, lost it again and that whole process. My biggest hit came August 16, 2009 when my dad passed away. He was the rock that my children and I depended on. I have since gained 46 more pounds. I have had enough! I love my children and want to be here for them. I look forward to speaking with you all.

Hi everyone I was skinny at one point in time but around the age of nine or ten the pounds have started coming on.I have been on many diets and they have worked in the short term but of course as soon as you stop it all comes back plus some. I am currently at 212lbs and this time next year I will be at my goal weight. As you can see I said I will be there I read some where that If you use the words I am instead of words like I hope or I'm planning it sets you up mentally to succeade.

Hi, this is my first message on Spark. This is my first day "on" here - I am committed to actually getting where I need to be this year (2011). Like many others, 2010 was a crappy year for me - the culmination of three very difficult years, actually. I've struggled with weight forever and for 15 years have fought because of thyroid problems. Now my thyroid is gone and it is even worse! (I gained 30lbs in the first 6 weeks after my surgery).

Holidays weren't good for me - I'm a stress eater & my life is stress. And I'm busy and I get too busy to eat during the day - so I eat just one meal at bedtime. I know - SUPER unhealthy!

But this is changing now!

And I appreciate your help & support!

AJ

Hi, my name is Sarah. I think I was skinny once, before puberty. By my senior year in high school I had broken the 200 lb mark and it has been getting higher ever since. I am determined to make a serious go of working out and bettering my lifestyle so that I can develop healthy habits.
Wow, that sounds like an advertisement. All I can say is Bring On the Skinny!

Hi everyone! I thought it was funny SP suggested I join this team when I signed up, I think they read my mind that weight has been a problem for me for as long as I can remember.
I'm ready to change that :)

I'm so excited on it being a new year! I feel so refreshed and positive. It was a hard year in 2010, I ended up losing my amazing Grandmother (Who is probably talking God's ear off right now :) *inside joke*) and a few weeks ago I lost my cousin. So this year wasn't one of the brightest, so I making 2011 my year! emoticon

Just glancing over some posts, it's amazing how small I thought the world was. Growing up, I always thought that no one understood my pain in being the overweight kid. Now, I don't feel so, I guess, small (how ironic...).

Hello! I've been on Sparkpeople for a long time, but I never fully committed myself. I've finally realised that I have to make myself healthy for myself. It can't be for my husband or to be able to get pregnant or because I want to show all those b*****s that I can do it. It's got to be for me. And for some reason, I think I'm ready to do it. It's going to be hard, but I've got to make the commitment. So, here it goes.

My name is Elizabeth, and I'm 26 years old. I've been married for four and a half years to a man that I love more than anything. I want him to be proud to show me off-to be someone that people don't ask "why is he with her?" My husband and I have two spoiled rotten dogs-a rott/pit mix named Sasha and a lab named Cash. They are horribly trained and spoiled rotten huge lap dogs. But they're ours, and we love them.

I've only been skinny once in my life--before 1st grade. And that was because I was always sick and couldn't really taste food. After surgery when I was about 5, I could taste again, and I've been eating my way through life ever since. It's time to change. New life-HERE I COME!!!

I think I just ate my willpower. ~Author Unknown

howdy! my name is anna. i've been on sparkpeople for about two years now but i just stumbled across this team. when i started, i weighed 320 lbs. during that first year, i lost 20 lbs, but gained it all back over the holiday season. last year, i lost that 20 lbs again, and gained back 10 during the holidays. at least i'm off to a slightly better start this year. :) hopefully i can lose 50 or 60 lbs this year, so even if i gain back 10 during the holidays, i'll still be significantly lower than i started.

i'm 28, married without kids. i'm hoping to start a family once i've gotten to a healthier weight - we haven't gotten pg so far primarily because i have PCOS. i'd rather get myself healthier than go through infertility treatments when my health needs improving anyway, and hopefully improving my health will make treatment unnecessary.

i'd love to make some new friends cuz we all need support along the way in this journey. :)

Hello there and happy new year!! My name is Emily and I've never been thin. When I was younger had surgery on my ankle which limited my ability to be active, and I never really learned to live a healthy lifestyle, to eat well and work out. I will be turning 30 in a year and I don't want to enter my thirty's this weight living this lifestyle. I joined spark people a long time ago but didn't stick with it, this time I will stick with it!!

hi folks--chris here. when i was 6 months old my baby formula had to be changed because i gained a huge amount of weight and the die was cast. while i haven't always looked overweight throughout my life, in my head i always have been because i was treated like i was fat since before i could even talk. now in my fifties i have a different view on things and my appearance isn't what matters to me- my health and happiness DOES. so thats why i am here--to reclaim my health and happiness.

focus on the parts you get right.

Hi! I'm Kimberly! I have been overweight since I was in 4th grade. I lost about 10 pounds using Sparkpeople in the spring and then got lost before reaching my goals. I am ready to get back in shape and stay with it! I'm really looking forward to getting my spark on!

Hi Everyone! Happy New Year! I'm Holly. I think age 4 was the last time I wasn't considered overweight. I've always been the overweight friend. I did lose about 100 lbs six years ago, but I've gained it all back since. This is going to be my year to focus on being healthy! I'm not married and don't have any kids (unless you count my feline child who thinks he's part human), so I have no excuses not to focus on myself. I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone!

Hi, I am Megan. I deffinately have not been skinny since I was 7 or 8 years old. I was always (or still) the ugly duckling. Always the chubby friend that had nice hair,pretty eyes or great legs (which I lucked out with ;) I have a great husband and two special needs children that I adore. I am doing this mainly for them.. I owe it to my children to stay in the world as long as I possibly can.. And I owe it to myself to be SKINNY :D

Hello everyone,

I am new to SP. I have truly, truly never been skinny. I did get to a healthy weight about three years ago, and some things shifted in my life causing me to relapse (I am working on shifting them back). I have lost about half the weight I need to re-lose ... the last time I was at my current weight (besides when I was losing a few years ago) was when I graduated grammar school ... 24 years ago!

Glad to be here and hoping to support everyone.

Joined SP in 2007 and also this team.
Managed to get 30 lb of and thought I know how it goes so I don't need it anymore. Even deleted my account.
WRONG!!!!!!
Rejoined on January 9th 2010 and also to NBS for the second time. The team was less active so I unjoined and since I lost again about 20 lb I decided to join other teams. I have limited SP time online available so I unjoined again but now only from the team.
WRONG!!!
Gained all all the 20 lbs back and 20 extra and in September I joined the Fall Challenge and now I am even a leader in the Winter Challenge. I have almost lost 30 lb since.
Feel that it is going to fast again and I want to focus again and NBS came to my mind.
Back again and now for good!!! :)
See you all around.

Every season has its charm.

My name is Brianna & I'm 22 years old. I am the biggest I've ever been & I'm hoping that 2010 will be that last year that I can say, "I've never been skinny"!

Hi. My name is June. I don't think I've ever really been skinny. I used to have to get clothes from the Pretty Plus department in Sears long, long time ago. Looking at photos of me from then, when I was about 8-9 years old I was skinny. Then puberty hit and I started slowly gaining. By the time I was 20 I wore a size 18. In 1998 I was wearing a size 28. Might as well have been a size 32. Yesterday's 3x is now today's 4x. I lost some weight and got down to somewhere around a 22. I'm almost 300 lbs. 305 was the highest I've been. I've lost 12 lbs since then.

Most of my weight is in my hips, butt and thighs. I'm tall and pretty strong, so I don't always look overweight. Othertimes I look like a fat pregnant cow. I want to become healthy, but don't mind that I'll probably never be a size 8. I'd be happy as a size 14.

Hi, all. My name is Nancy and I've actually been "skinny" three times in my life: once when I was born (5 lbs, 2 oz; cereal in my formula promptly made me fat), once for about 6 months between 7th and 8th grades when I was anorexic (got down to about 105 lbs), and once over a period of maybe a year or so when I was working toward my 3rd degree brown belt in karate and didn't even realize I was shaping up (I wasn't really "skinny," but I definitely was slender at a size 8!). An unexpected death in my family sent me straight to the refrigerator and I have been gaining and losing the same 15-20 lbs ever since. I'm so disgusted with myself I could scream.

So, I'm looking for some new SparkTeams to join as we approach the new year because I need a boost and want to break this ridiculous, absurd, self-destructive cycle. I found you all and thought, "Yep, I've found a great team." So, Happy Holidays to everyone. I look forward to being a "Never Been Skinny" member.
