Hi I am Paula and I live in England.
Over time I have managed to lose 22 pounds having started at 175 pounds and still need to lose a further 20 pounds.
It may not seem a lot but proving to be hard to do. I chose this team as it seems to be Positive and Upbeat with Challenges that will help me stay on track.

This is something I really want to do and determined to achieve my goal of a healthy lifestyle that will become a habit.
Changing old habits is not easy but I know I can do this.

emoticon My name is Latisha and I just joined this motivation & positive attitude team. Periodically, I always scroll through the Spark Teams and join a new one. I selected this one because I am usually an upbeat and positive person, but lately I have been really struggling with positivity in my life. Nevertheless, I am here and I hope to meet some new and positive Spark Friends! Talk to you soon!

Returning after a long hiatus. Used to be RedQueen2262 - time to change things up and just be me.

Any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomfort.

I've been away from SP for quite some time. I started up again because I need some motivation. I have the exercise thing down but have no accountability in place for what I eat. I'd like to start making some progress again.

Two weeks ago I found Sparkpeople and a couple of days ago found this group. My life is trying at times and my emotions and eating are a result of my yo-yo lifestyle. I like the fact one of the challenges is what I say to myself, and another to connect with others.

Hi guys,
I'm Brenda but go by Star. I'm new to the group just joined. I'm 34 and a mom of 3 teens 1 girl and 2 boys, and I look forward to getting to know everyone and maybe making a few friends.

A Native American elder once described his own inner struggles in this manner: Inside of me there are two wolfs. One of the wolfs is mean and evil. The other wolf is good. The mean wolf fights the good wolf all the time. When asked which wolf wins, he reflected for a moment and replied, The one I feed the most." -George Bernard Shaw

Hi everyone! My name is G. I'm getting refamiliarated with SparkPeople after a little break. I have a weight loss goal but I'm mostly here for the community aspect and to get healthy overall. This looks like a great team. I love being around the positive-minded.


It's better to walk alone than to walk with the wrong people.

Hi Everyone ~ Nice to meet you! My name is Teresa or T. I'm 54 years old, was a real couch potato and lived on mostly carbs, especially bread, fast food, potatoes, cookies, chips. I'm happy to say I'm not living like that anymore. Moving this body daily and changed my whole way of eating. I've got a lot to learn and a long way to go. I'm on my way to around 140 pounds.

Hello everybody!

My name is Grace and I have been with Sparkpeople since 2008. I have gained and lost but I never give up and keep on trying. I am 63 and think I have been on every diet there is , but in the end cutting back , eating healthy with exercise is the best way , but need some motivation. I still work part time but I have a 90 year old mom a that keeps me busy the rest of the time. I also have started doing yoga and really enjoy it when I can get to the class. It seems like something is always coming up. I just ordered some tapes on it so I can do it at home instead, but it is more fun to do it with others . Thanks again for the invite and hope everyone has a great day tomorrow.

Hello! My name is Wendy. I have been on Sparkpeople off and on since 2006. I joined after I had my second son. I successfully lost 50 lbs in 2009, but had some dramatic stuff happen so gained it back. I have been working since to lose it again.

I have some medical issues that is motivating me now. I have been dealing with Cholesterol and staying off of medication for it. Change in diet has helped improve it a great deal. I have recently found out I have Reactive Hypoglycemia which is due to my genetic disorder Gilbert's Syndrome. This has caused my diet to change for the better cutting out most sugars, carbs (the kind that turn to glucose fast) and have amped up my lean protein intake. I have also started working on drinking more fluids and water. I also have Scoliosis and have done a lot of research on exercises best for me since I have a Harrington rod on my spine.

I am also a stay at home mother of 3 boys and we homeschool. I enjoy Cardio Kickboxing and dancing. I also do 'floorwork' to help build my core and strengthen my body. I am coming out of being down for almost a full year with a sprained ankle also so have been rehabilitating my ankle. My body (back especially) have become really weak over the past few years between dealing with injuries to ankles/knees and just dealing with depression. I have gotten back into the swing of things however this year and 2016 will be the year I get back to a healthy and happy me.

Hey everyone I'm Brenda. I'm working on getting fit, and not really eating better but remembering to eat at all after I do that then I'll work how good the food is. I'm 160 but I'm sure most of that is fat as i do nothing all day but hide in my room on my comp 24/7 ( but fixing that starting today. I did walk down to store today, first time in forever) I used to be a gymnastics, but ended up breaking my back in a car crash and ever since then i kind of just gave up on everything. Jan 26th was my 34 birthday and I looked at myself for the first time in a long time, its time to get the fit happy healthy me back.

Keri, you certainly are busy! Sometimes, finding a balance can be difficult. Finding time for YOU is important, too, tho.

Lin, congrats on your loss! That's awesome! you're right about something that will grab your attention and KEEP you focused. You shouldn't do something just because it's the latest craze. that will never work.

Have an emoticon week!

Hey, y'all! I just joined. Looking for more motivation to get my arse moving more. ;-)

Just a quick bio ..... just had another birthday, nearly in mid 50's now. How did that happen? :-/ Anyway, I'm single with fur kids, no human kids at all. Don't drink or smoke, but sadly am on medications for various health issues. :-( Do have osteoarthritis of both knees so, I gotta watch my limits and not overdo stuffs. I orginally started on Sparkpeople back in 2005. I've gone from 216 to my current 181. I've had periods where I got closer to 150's, but that was mostly due to stress and NOT eating much. I gotta find an even balance.

I bought myself a fitbit charge HR this month and have been getting used to it. I've also, decided to buy some gym equipment for home. I tend to get bored easily so, I don't really go in for a lot of the stuffs most people do. The way I look at it is if it doesn't grab my attention, I ain't touching it. So, right now I have the following equipment at home: dumbbells (6 #); Kettlebell (5 #); Workout/Body Bar (5 #) and a resistance band. I want to buy a medicine ball next and down the road when I've got enough funds I'd love a free standing punching bag and gloves. :-)

I just set up an area in my bedroom to workout in. I had to move a few things and I'm hoping that it will be conducive to getting me moving. I have my old laptop set up for workout dvds. I no longer use the laptop for anything else but watching dvds.

Since I live in an apartment and not a house, I can't paint my walls. I'm trying some "color therapy" of sorts. I read online that the color Orange is good for workout areas because it is energetic. I bought ordinary construction paper and used tacky to put some up on one of my walls. Let's see if it 'moves' me. If not, I'm trying another color, one that I know excites me .... yellow. ;-)

Hello everyone!! My name is Keri and I joined this team over the weekend. I am a divorced mom of 4 and I work at home over the internet. My greatest challenges are money (4 kids with no support!!) and time (have a full time and part time job plus all the running I do with my wonderful children). I am trying to find a rhythm, a sort of routine so that I can add fitness into my daily life. So far it is stop and go, but I have confidence I will figure this out. Sometimes I just don't have the money to eat the way I want, and when I don't I get really tired and lethargic, and it snowballs. I am positive I can find ways to make this work out. My current plan is to jump rope and do stretching and yoga. These are things that I can do 5 minutes here, 15 minutes there, and maybe 20 minutes before bed. Just trying to sneak things in throughout the day until I can figure something else out.

I am looking forward to getting to know all of you and am loving that I can surround myself with other people who are positive-minded and motivated!

2016 is going to be wonderful!!!

Keri

30 pounds gone!

emoticon Hello everyone and happy new year!

I joined this team back in July 2015 and am glad to be a part of this team!

My name is Viji and I would like to lose a good 30kg to become fit and healthy. I think I am a positive and helpful person but sometimes I need to remember to be as kind and positive towards myself =) I hope to share my journey with this team this new year and achieve my goals and aspirations after trying for so long!

Wish you all the very best on your journey to better health!!
