Hello, I'm new here, but certainly not new to dieting. A couple of years ago, I lost 106 lbs, and I was within 38 pounds of target. In the last few months, I have gained some weight, and now I need to lose about 75. I look forward to meeting everyone and hearing your feedback and tips.

Hello, I am 32 about 240 and looking to get down to 190 by next October and then 170 at some point. One goal at a time. I hate weighing myself but just ordered a scale yesterday from Amazon.com. Hoping it will help keep me on track without becoming a distraction. Feeling a little nervous about the whole regular weigh-in, have not done it since I was in college and 150. emoticon

Just wanna say hello. I am sooo new here. Trying to figure this whole thing out! Any pointers are welcommed. My name is Brandy. I am 31...and the mother of 5 beautiful children. I weigh 195 and I am not really sure about my goal weight. I just know that I want to FEEL good again.

Hello all...I am new to this team but been in sparks for awhile. I want to lose about 80 pounds.
I have lost weight many times before but have gained back due to stresses of life. The time I was most successful was when I was in a group but I have not been able to be in one where I have moved now and I am hoping to find that support on sparks. I am looking forward to getting to know new people. Have a great weekend everyone!

Hi Everyone! I'm Melanie, I'm 30 and I'm 207 lbs. I would love to get below 150 in this coming year. I have a 1 month old and a 3 yr old girl, so I'm pretty busy. I am a massage therapist, going back to work Jan. 4th and have committed to healthier food choices, more water and a reduction in my pop intake - (somedays all I drink is coke). I am also going to exercise more, which is to say at all. :)

Hi, though my membership says I've been here since 2007, I really just started actively using Spark about a week ago. I am a 33 year old working mother to a 1 year old girl and stepmother to an 11 year old boy, though he doesn't live with us. I have been married for 7 years. I was born in Michigan, grew up in San Diego and now live in northern Mississippi. I want to loose weight so I can be healthy and teach my daughter how to be healthy too.

Hi. I discovered SparkPeople a little over a year ago, but didn't get involved and didn't make much progress. I am 36, had lost almost 100 lbs 3 years ago, was doing well at maintaining and then had a medical issue that ended up with an 80 lb gain in less than a year. I had a dr's appt a week ago which ended up with me on a 1200 cal diet, 30 min exercise daily and metformin rx. I decided I needed to get involved to help me stay motivated and less alone. My fiance has trouble with not weighing enough, so while he is incredibly supportive, he does not have any clue about what I'm struggling with. Anyway, thanks for letting me join in!

Be faithful to that which exists within yourself.

emoticon I guess this is where I tell everyone about me. My name is Heather and I am trying to lose weight for many different reasons. When I first started back I was at 237 and well I have now lost 6lbs. My overall goal is to get to 150ish but my first goal is to get out of the 200's. After I get out (not an if but a WHEN) my next goal i to get to 187 at which point both of my parents will quit smoking. Now there is a catch to this...my sister also has to lose 50lbs. Once I hit a heathly weight, my hubby and I plan to TTC #2. So I have a lot riding on me making my life a healthy and happy change. I am always looking for friends to help talk me thru the tough times and willing to help me as I help them. emoticon

Slow and steady wins the race.

OK, I am kinda new. I have been with spark for a few weeks, six really. I am making slow progress. I am soliciting for a buddy. I just need someone who gets this process. Who can understand the feelings that come with being overweight and unhealthy. My husband does not get it, nor does my best friend. Neither of them are 70 pounds over weight. Does anyone out there have room for one more friend? emoticon

This is my second attempt at doing anything like this. I really want to try to make things work this time. I need the support of people that understand what I am feeling, going through, etc. I am 30 years old, the mother of two and happily married. Born and raised in the South and love it!!! I am 209 lbs and want to be 150 pounds by my 31st Birthday next year.

Hey, just wanted to introduce myself. This is my first time on anything like this, but thought I would give it a shot for support. My name is Chuck, I live in San Antonio TX and I am graduating from college here in less than I week. I am 39 years old, a disabled veteran and I weight 262lbs. Not as bad as it sounds, as I am 6'2" tall, although it is not where I want to be. I have set a goal for myself to get to 200lbs by November 2010. I have beautiful wife and 2 boys, 4 and 6 years old, my wife is great motivation, but at 4'11" 113lbs, she tends to not completely understand the whoas of trying to lose weight... So that's me in a nutshell, glad to meet y'all...

Good morning all.. I've been away for sometime but I've returned. I have let stress block my steps but I have broken down 1 barrier and I've decided to keep on marching. I cant say that stress wont be my biggest challenge because I wont lie. I haven't learned how to deal with it yet. Can anyone really?? I'm a Ct intern in PA and will be finished my studies in FEb 10, I was an RT student when I started my journey and since then graduated in August 09.
I am married and have a wonderful 13yr old daughter and I live in Conshohocken. I have many furry children and I enjoy reading. So I'm glad to be back on track and welcome anyone who can give me tips/ideas/recipes. Thanks Tracey

Hello Everyone! I'm brand new to the site and am lovin' it! I'm excited to explore the site, meet new friends on the boards, and to use the tools available to help me get my outside to match my inside. Inside I feel slim, healthy and happy. I'm often surprised when I try on clothes in the mirror or look at a photo of myself and see that I don't really look at all how I feel. I look happy, but not so healthy or slim. SO - here's to being healthy, inside AND out. emoticon

My name is Jennifer. I am almost 32... and I live in Nevada right now. I"m trying to get back into running, and have successfully done two days so far this week and almost 5 miles. (like 4.9 so far...) Thankfully my blood pressure is back to a good level, as it was very high this time last year, and stayed that way for almost the last year. But the last month or two, it's been normal. Hurray! Now to get my weight down and the rest of my body to cooperate! I am not sure how far I'll lose, but my initial goal is to stay below 200 and hopefully get to 150... if i can actually lose a little more to 140 then w00t!

So, Hello! I'd be happy to join up with someone to kind of check each other for running buddies and stuff.

Hope everyone is doing good.

I lost 23 lbs over the summer while on medicine but am 4 months off my meds and have regained all of that weight back. Medicine is great and can have wonderful benefits but you are right - there are terrible side effects to have to deal with, too, and weight gain is one of them. Good luck to you!

I'm 34 and a stay-at-home mom. I have 60 lbs to lose. My blood pressure has steadily increased over the last year and 3 weeks ago it was up t0 140/100. This past Saturday I was puffy and swollen, could hardly bend my fingers, forearms huge and tender to the touch and aching. My hips, ankles and feet hurt constantly. My family is full of diabetics and I'm on the lowest dose of Metformin right now. I am sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. I was an athlete in a former life and could run like the wind - I want to get that back and be healthy for my kids and my husband.

Hey Kimberley,

I was getting really bad headaches for like two years. It ended up being my blood pressure. Losing weight has helped, but so has BP medicine. Something to consider!

Hope you feel better,

Hey Everyone,

What a cool website. It is a lot like weight watchers, but free!

I am new here, obviously, but I am excited. I have been heavy my entire life but things got a little out of control after my first child was born. My wife was eating for two and I decided to join her!

I have lost quite a bit of weight, but I would like to get down to what I was when I was playing football.

It is nice to meet everyone!

HI All! I am 35 years old and have a 2 year old that I need to lose weight to keep up with. My family has history of heart disease and diabetes, and I dont want a personal health scare to be the reason I start losing weight. I want to do this on my terms. Plus I want to be around for my son for a long time.

Its been hard to get motivated. My husband is out of work, and I work part time, but I also have panic attacks. Its easy to get comfortable on the couch watching tv and snacking. My biggest problem is that I dont move around enough. I used to dance and excersize daily until I got pregnant. I was in alot of pain during my pregnancy, that I didnt move enough. I gained 60 pounds while pregnant and havent lost any of it. Ive been sedentary ever since.

Excited to get started!!

Hi, I'm Dee. I am about 50 pounds overweight... Love modern medicine!! It helps one thing but the side effect... adds poundage. So this is why I am here. I am now medicine free, and ready to go!!

Hi, I am 36 and live in Southwestern VA. I have a 12 (almost 13) year old son. My family runs to heart disease, diabetes and blood pressure problems.

Until I was pregnant, and then the next year in a car accident, I was always below ideal weight, which is 140-150 for my frame and height. Now, I am at 215. The good news is that I have lost weight to get there - Thanks Spark!

My biggest problems are that I cook most everything I eat from scratch - due to allergies; and that I do not exercise enough. So, Spark Recipes is helping with the cooking and figuring out portions and nutritional content. Physical Therapy is helping me figue out how to exercise without causing problems to the damaged nerve and the messed up joints.

My goal is to be back to ideal body weight by 2 years from now. To be able to hike, fish, camp, bike and do the other things I love next summer (7 months from now) and to increase my physical fitness.

I need to avoid the health problems that my relatives develop when they are in their 40's and 50's. I know that to avoid these things, I have to do it now.

The other challenge I face is that I am over scheduled in major ways. I am a full time college student. I babysit 2 children full time and my son has serious, chronic health issues. I plan to be in grad school in the fall of 2010 in pursuit of a masters of Psychology. So, finding time... Making time is tough. However, I am committed and determined, so it will happen. And, the support of my family and of the people I have met on Spark is certainly a great help!

Hi! I love food. There I said it. That's why I am here--to fight the weight gain that has occurred in my love affair with food. Today is my first day tracking my food. I have been exercising on and off for the past year and a half. Hopefully this will work for me (finally) and I can get to my normal body weight. I am 222 as of today. I will be happy with 175.

Hi All,

My name is Angela. I am from Maine. I am 36 yrs old.

I currently have had alot of life changes recently the two biggest being finding the man of my dreams and taking on the respondsiblity of two of my neices 19/17.

One of my neices is currently overweight also. I am trying to set and example to both ofthem by walking and eating better and just over all taking care of myself.

I also have 2 dogs, 6 cats and one rat!

I have been a here on sparks off and on for about 2 yrs. This is the first time I have introduced myself.

I am hoping to find some buddies to chat with here that are around my weight loss goal.

I am getting married in the summer 2010 and in hope to be around 250lbs. I hope to continue losing weight after that but for now this is my goal!

Thanks for taking the time to read this and Happy losing everyone!

HI everyone!! I'm from Oklahoma and looking to lose about 80 pounds. I have 6 kids (3 stepsons) and a very hectic schedule. Weight lose has been very difficult for me my whole life. And now my only daughter is having difficulty. I want to change my eating and exercise habits to make it a little easier for her. If we do it together maybe I can set a example for her that will last a lifetime.

Hi, I'm Tiffany. I've been on SparkPeople for about a month now and am really happy with my successes so far. I have almost 100 pounds to lose but would be satisfied if I lost 75; so far I am 11.5 down! I think my biggest tool has been scrupulously recording everything I eat, and I've added 2 thirty-minute walks per week (hope to increase that some as I get stronger). I love all the info and support I get on SparkPeople and am glad to have found this group too. Happy Thanksgiving!

All things in moderation.

EVERYTHING tastes as good as thin feels!

Hello,

I'm new to Sparkpeople. I'm 34 and I would like to lose in total 80 pounds but at least 30 in order to be able to have a higher chance of getting pregnant.

Hello I am a single mother of 3 and I am 30. The last time I weighed myself it was 235. I have started to run and become very active. Besides the fact that my job has a new health care plan. I want to keep my co payments and doctor's visits down. I also plan on going on a few vacation spots this summer for the first time in 5 years to visit old friends and want to push myself to look better than I did in high school. I don't have anyone close to me to keep me on track so I decided that this was the best alternative for me. A friend of mine suggested that I try it out...I eat healthy meals my problem lies in the sugar tooth I tend to binge eat once every couple of months for about a week.I'm tired of it and need a group of "friends" to help me surpass that and be better. I go weigh in tomorrow for our holiday challenge. Keep ya'll posted :)

Awesome. Thanks...definitely I'd love to have a partner in this. You too...push yourself hard and you'll get there. When you think you can't do it, imagine you have no choice. People are often shocked what they can do when backed against a wall. Take care!
