Hi everyone!

I got married in August of 2010 here in Boston :) I've been a member of SparkPeople for a while but I have just re-discovered it and am trying to get back on track, lose weight and get in shape.

I'm a 4th grade teacher and during the school year work is kind of my life, it's so hard to get focused on living healthy, but I know I need to so that I can do my job well, among other reasons of course! I'm 28 and live in the Boston suburbs with my husband (no kids just yet).

My biggest challenge: my husband is super-skinny and struggles to GAIN weight! He's always looking for high-calorie, high-fat foods, while I am of course doing the opposite.

Looking forward to some good discussions :)

Hello everyone,

I got married on June 26, 2010 to my best friend, Dan. We moved from Michigan to Alaska to teach exactly one month after our wedding. We are somewhat isolated from the conveniences that allowed me to be successful in my weight loss attempts in the past, so I have a few more challenges than I'm used to. I am really looking forward to being a part of this SparkTeam.

Hello! I got married on June 12, 2010. SP helped me to get fit before the big day, but now I can't seem to get myself out of honeymoon mode. Been having too much fun! Hopefully now that fall is approaching I can settle back into my routines!

Hello everyone. I got married on August 14, 2009. This has been a fun first year of marriage but for my second year I want to be more healthy. No more late night snacks!

Hi, my name is Lisa, and I got married just a couple of months ago at nearly the highest weight I have ever been. I am right around 200, and my first goal is to try to make it to 160.

I have been a teacher for a few years now, and I have put on about 10-15 pounds every year since I started. Something about the stress, lack of sleeping, and eating out, really didn't work for me. :) Now, I am looking for some Sparkbuddies to keep me motivated.

Just one day at a time. :) Just one day at a time.

My name is Amanda. I was married on 09/09/09 to the most wonderful guy ever! When we met, I weighed about forty pounds less than I do now. A lot has gone on since we met. But I'm ready to get to my goal weight and be sexier than ever!

Hi! I was wondering what the follow up to "brides to be" was! LOL!

I got married August 22, 2009! We jusst got back from our honeymoon in Cuba... and I I gained quite a few pounds in between the wedding and the honeymoon!

I MISS MY TRAINER!

Too bad I can't afford one! LOL! it was a "wedding emergency" I bought my dress to fit and it didn't fit 6-8 weeks before the wedding !!

Anyway HI GUYS!!!

It is as if my life were magically run by two electric currents: joyous and positive and despairing negative; whichever is running at the moment dominates my life, floods it. -sylvia plath

Hi Everyone! I got married on July 12 and have definitely noticed myself getting a bit chunkier. I haven't put on the pounds, but I've been watching my muscle definition deteriorate into fat. I decided I'm too young to be complacent about my weight. My husband (who actually has put on weight since the wedding, poor thing) is on board and we're gonna be one smoking couple this summer! I'm new to Sparkpeople, but I can already tell it's going to be a great tool.

Hello!
I got married on August 22nd 2009 and hadn't quite reached my weigh loss goals. Then after coming back from our honeymoon there have been so many holidays filled with too much food and I have gained so much weight! I just ordered a treadmill which should arrive before January 1st, and am trying to get the motivation to finally loose the weight in 2010 and be happy with by body!

Hello Everyone,

I just married my best friend last Friday December 11, 2009 on my 25th birthday. I lost about 80 lbs between July 2009 and now all for a wedding that was supposed to happen May 2010. I want to lose this last 50 or so before our honeymoon in Greece this May 2010. Looking forward to getting to know more newlyweds who love Spark People

Hi everyone! I'm new to this group, but not SparkPeople. I got married this past April 25th in Massachusetts. I joined SparkPeople last February and had great success but stopped using it a few weeks before the wedding as I just didn't have time with all the last minute preparations. In addition to getting married, in the last 5 months I completed my thesis and graduated from grad school and next Friday (the 18th) my husband and I are closing on our first house! Its been a busy and crazy few months and my lack of exercise and eating right has taken its toll and I've put on about 15lbs since our wedding. I want to get healthy not only for myself, but so that I can enjoy a long life with my husband and we are also talking about starting a family in the next year or two and I want to be as healthy as possible for my pregnancy.

Hello everyone!

I just got married Aug. 15th, and it was amazing! Lost 15 pounds in the 8 weeks before the wedding, and gained half that back on my Honeymoon! Looks like a pretty common thing, but that doesn't mean I have to like it, lol.

Good luck to everyone!

Hi everyone! I got married on August 1st to the most wonderful man in the world...but we both need to start making our health a priority!

I hope I can find some great recipes on here (we go out to eat WAY too much) and some creative ways for us to exercise together (I love the gym but he doesn't). I hope this group will help!

Hello everyone! I got married in March of this year and am looking to get back on track with the running program the hubs and I were following before I tore a muscle in my leg.

I can officially begin training again, so the hubs and I have decided to start out with a basic running program (the Couch to 5k) to help my muscles get readjusted to the impact.

Our first day of the plan was this morning and I'm looking forward to getting back in the swing of things.

Between getting married, the injury, moving across the state and getting a new job...it's been a series of adjustments.

Life is good though and be able to run again will make it that much better!

hello! my name is jamie. i just got married on may 16th, 2009. my hubs and i worked really hard to lose weight before the wedding. i lost 12lbs in the six months leading up to the wedding. unfortunately, since the honeymoon, i've gained back about 8lbs. my short term goal is to lose those 8lbs. my long term goal is lead a healthier life style and get to my healthy weight, especially for when we start planning to have our first child.

i've been using sparkpeople for the past several months to record my meals and exercise, but thought i'd get a bit more involved on the boards to get some ideas, inspiration and support!

Hello.

I'm so happy there's newlywed groups on here. Unlike most everyone, I started gaining weight while planning my wedding. I'm an emotional eater and I'd say wedding planning was very emotional.

I'm looking to lose the 20 or so pounds I gained while courting my husband and planning our wedding!

Hey Everyone!!!

Nice to see some fabulous newly weds out there!!! Its funny how we all concentrate on the weight loss before the wedding but then gain it all back on honeymoon!!! I was surprised don't know about you :-) I thought it would take a little bit longer - jeans and scales said otherwise! LOL!

My husband and I were were wedded 3 months ago!!! And it's seems like just the other day literally... so BIG congrats to you all and I wish each and everyone of us success on this new journey

Hi Everyone!
I used Spark last summer before my wedding. I was married in October. Since then I haven't been on here. Now my sister is engaged and looking into a wedding next May so I am back to get myself into gear.
I really enjoy married life and was excited to find this team. I know you will all be great support!

Welcome to the team!

The Chatter's Club is for daily chat. We also have a March Goals thread set up and a daily challenge.

I look forward to getting know you.

You can do anything you put your mind to!


There is no such thing as trying, you either do it or you don't.
