Hi everyone. I have been a member of this team in the past, but left because I wasn't really active on SparkPeople anymore. I have been back for a couple of weeks and decided to drop by and rejoin the team. Since the Fourth of July, I have lost 26 pounds and gone down a size in my clothes. I am eating clean, wheat/gluten free, most of the time, staying within my calorie goal range, and just this week started working in some exercise. My long-term goals are to lose down to 150 pounds, be more fit, get my type 2 diabetes into remission, and to make eating right and exercising a life-style rather than a diet!

Starting Weight: 360
Goal Weight: 150

Short-Term Goal: 100 pounds lost by May 31, 2015.

Greetings from AZ! I am a 28-year-old new mama who is ready to shed some lbs and have fun while doing it. I have a long weight-loss journey ahead of me but know that I am in control and I am not alone in this adventure. It is great to see so many people on here supporting one another and I look forward to getting to know all of you.

Hi,
My name is Mari and I have been a Spark People member for about three years. I've maintained an earlier weight loss but am tired of all the FAT! So here I am now. I'm looking forward to directly attacking the issues with the FAT. I'm ready now and very motivated to change by the actions of my son who has taken his health and fitness to a new level. I realized yesterday that my parents and other family members never were aggressive in pursuing a healthy lifestyle. I want to change for myself and to be a good example to my children and grandchildren. This team looks awesome. I'm looking forward to being a member.

Hi, my name is Kris. I have been on SparkPeople for a long time, but never consistently. I am new to this team. Someone else recommended the team because it has active members to connect with. I lost about 40 pounds last summer/fall and have gained about 10 back. I am looking to lose about a total of 30 more pounds. I seem to have plateaued, as I cannot seem to get the scale to budge at all this summer. I have been using Jillian Michael's Fitness Revolution on a fairly consistent basis and walking. If anyone is interested in checking in with each other on a regular basis let me know! I need the accountability! I am hoping to make the scale move down some before I turn 40 this fall. emoticon I live in Cincinnati, Ohio. I look forward to getting to know everyone.

My name is Katie and I'm coming back to SparkPeople. I've lost 180 pounds in the last 18 months, but I'm excited to connect with people on here. I've hit somewhat of a plateau and I would love to not only have the support of a community like this, but also support those with similar dreams as mine. I have 40 pounds left to go and I know we can do this!

Hi there!
I'm writing this from Vancouver Island BC on a beautiful sunny afternoon!
I've been a spark member since 2010, but have had an "on again, off again" approach to logging on.....I need routine...so I've worked really hard to include this as one of my support tools while I'm losing weight! I love the nutrition and fitness tracker that spark offers!
I'm so done being the fat girl..... in fact so much so that last October weighing in at 288 I finally decided to do something about it! I am as of this morning 6lbs away from having lost 100lbs!!! Still a ways to go to my goal weight...and it's interesting my brain still returns occassionally to the image that I'm still that big girl (..."girl" says me, who just turned 49!)
I currently weigh 194 and still will be tackling the remainder lbs for awhile ~ I'm looking forward to this team's goals and forums to help me along the way!!!

Hi, another re-introducer! I've managed to gain back most of the weight that I had lost. I was so ashamed that I unjoined and totally stopped logging in to spark. Huge mistake. Anyway, I'm back at it and looking forward to participating in challenges and getting to know everyone, again!

I haven't posted in any of the forums in a very long time - so I figured it's about time! :) I'm hoping to get some support and motivation and hopefully provide support to others. THANK YOU!

I'm not new to SP or DBTFG, but I've been gone so long, I might as well be the new kid on the block. Anyhow, I'm going to start by tryng to visit a lot more and get inspired by all of you beautiful people. I'm so tired and Done with looking and feeling awful. I need all the help I can get. So I pray that my spark becomes a flame that keeps on burning. emoticon

Hi, I'm Lizy. I joined SP a little over a week ago. It's been a rough start. I've never really tried to lose weight, even though I've always needed to. What got me to join was the fact that my mom and step-mom have started sharing clothes with me and they've always been overweight, especially since having kids.
I'm 19 and just finished my first year of college. I'm done being the fact girl because I'm sick of all the looks from people and from all the judgments in my family. Lets do this!

There comes a time when the world gets quiet and the only thing left is your own heart. So you'd better learn the sound of it. Otherwise you'll never understand what it's saying. -Sarah Dessen

Hello everyone! I'm not new but I've been gone a long time, and it's so great to be back. I hope you've all been doing well. I'm still at my highest weight of 330 pounds, but I'm more determined than ever to get it off once and for all. Feel free to add me as a friend, if you like. We could all use some added encouragement along this journey.

Hello Done girls,

I am not new to the Done group but I have been away for such a long time that I feel the need to start fresh. My name is Crystal and I am 29 years old...won't be long and I'll be hitting the big 3-0 in a few weeks. I love this group as it helped me to lose about 45lbs previously and then I left sparkpeople. I want to kick this obesity habit to the curb and I know one group of ladies on this website that prove day in and day out that anything is possible and that they surely know how to get the job DONE! I am struggling with getting started but I want this more than I have ever wanted anything in my life. I'm tired of always feeling sick and sluggish...I want more out of life and would love to do it with some new friends! I would really like to start this journey with the DONE girls! I look forward to getting to know the new generation of Done girls and catch up with some old friends!

I'm Beth. I started SP back in 2007 when I weighted 239 then again in 2009 weighting 252 and then I joined weight watchers (249) thinking paying for something would motivate me more but that only worked for about 6 months, something changed and I lost all motivation and started thinking "what's the point" not good! My sister (who is also on SP) and I tried to do something together but that only lasted about 2 weeks. It is the same story again and again of starting and then quitting. I'm sick and tired of quitting and being in the 200s. I don't want to be in the 200s, I don't want to live the rest of my life adjusting what I do because of my weight. I'm tried of only feel joy when I'm eating because when I'm not I feel so uncomfortable, I don't want to feel this way anymore! So I'm here, on SP, to change my weight, my eating habits, and ultimately change ME!!

I no longer want to be a victim of obesity and I'm DONE being the Fat Girl!

Ps. this team seems awesome and I can't wait to jump in and get super involved!!!

Hi everyone - I'm Nina. About 6 years ago, I lost 70+ pounds with SP. I started to get uncomfortable with new attention and comments about my body, and regained 10 or 15 lbs. Then my father died and in the grief and chaos that followed, I've regained all of the weight and another 30 lbs as well.

Now I'm really ready again. I know the difference between making a half-hearted attempt and being truly committed. I feel like I did way back in 2007 - ready to be strong and persevere. I'm so glad to find this SparkTeam! It seems like a lot of women who have lost 100+ lbs credit this team with much of their success.

Hi out there, i am not necessarily new to the site, but it's been well over a year. I had some success with Weight Watchers, but then had some major upheaval in my life, and am now trying to lose what I gained back and then some!!
So, I thought I would get out there and say HI!

Hi! I'm Aimee... This isn't my first go at Sparkpeople, but this is the first time I'm approaching it with the simple goal of feeling better! I'm trying to implement intuitive eating and sticking with a health at every size mentality. I think Spark is going to be very handy for connecting with other people.

Hi all. My name is Sheena, I'm 52 and I live in Phoenix. I don't have much of a support group where I live so I am searching for it here along with motivation. I joined this site in 2007 and didn't utilize it, but I intend to use it a lot now. There are several physical things wrong with me and I tend to use that as an excuse. But I realize now, that they are only excuses. I have to start somewhere, but I don't know where. I'm looking for advice, motivation, friendship, encouragement, everything but excuses and hopefully I can give some back!! emoticon

Hello Everyone,

My name is Tamika and I live in Shelby Township, Michigan. I was born in Detroit but decided to move 40 miles northeast to enjoy a quieter scene. I am 335 and continuing my weight loss and health mission by becoming involved in a social support system. I have learned that this will take time, but that does not mean I have to stop living. My goal is to reach a healthy weight. I also found my weight interfering with my career as well, as it has been difficult to move higher in the workplace in spite of my skills, attitude, and education. I have worked in information technology for about 8 years. I am ready to take control of my life- the one no one sees behind closed doors, when I've taken off my girdle, suit, stilettos, and makeup.

I am also a certified athletic trainer, manicurist, and massage therapist. I created a natural beauty product line called House of Kie Products. I do not want to be the face of my company in an unhealthy state. I want to live clean, healthy, and expose the world to my diva style.

I wish everyone congratulations on your goals and success in all your endeavors.
