Hi, I'm Vicki, and I'm 56 years old.
I have about 56 lbs left to lose to reach my goal and can use all the added support I can get. I tend to lose slowly and in the past motivation wasn't very high. But this year hubby is on board with me and we both plan to lose as much as we can and get healthier.
I look forward to getting to know you all.

Hey all!

I am a just-turned 25 year old lady living in North Carolina. I am a yoga teacher, and have devoted a lot of my life to teaching and practicing. Yoga helped me move through disordered eating, a clinical eating disorder, and body hatred. Now I feel qualified and confident to help other people through similar things...message me or check out my Sparkpage if you like.
I'm also a Public Health student at UNC Greensboro...

Yay for Big and Beautiful!

Hi everyone!

I'm Sarah from Vancouver, BC and I'm 28 years old. I work in the public sector as an appraisal assistant doing property value assessments, etc.

I love running, hot yoga, and dancing. I've been married to my wonderful husband for just over a year now. I've lost just over 25 lbs before joining this site, and I've got another 25 to go. I'm looking for buddies so we can help support each other!

Have a great day,
Sarah

I'm sure I'll be needing your support and I'll be your cheerleader if need be! LETS DO THIS!!!!!

Hi all, my name is Rebekah and I live in Virginia. I had my 3rd baby in March (after losing 40 lbs, but I wasn't done!) and I had lost down to my pre-baby wt of 195, but I've put on a few lbs the past 2 months. I want to get back on track and finish what I started!

It is true that we do not know what we've had until we lose it, but it is also true that we don't know what we've been missing until it arrives.

Hey, I'm Christy. I'm 24 (almost 25) livingi in Knoxville, TN. I've always been on the curvy side (which I wouldn't change for anything), but recently I've let the pounds pile up. I'm not hoping to lose all of my curves, I'm just hoping to live a healthier lifestyle and get down to a healthier weight.

Hullo!

My name is Amanda, and though I am a young'un for this site - just a mere baby of 19 - I am slowly but surely getting more and more comfortable here on Sparkpeople.
I decided to join this team because it looked friendly and fun, and who doesn't find Marilyn Monroe motivating?
Look forward to getting to know you all!

Hello All !
My name is Kimberly ( or Kim) Which ever you decide to call me. :)

May of 2008 I had joined Sparks, and by the end of July I had lost 35 lbs just by eating better and exercising. Of course I fell off that wagon and back trailed my wooden wheel prints picking all the pounds I had cast over the side. Oh! And I found a couple of more lbs that werent mine to begin with but added them to my stash anyway. Sighhhhh!!!

So its back to the drawing board. I have alot to loose, but I really want to start eating HEALTHY foods and quit relying on junk/crap food. I also want to start getting in shape. I would LOVE to take up jogging one day.
My profile will be private, but if you want to be friends just send me a message!!! Im here for you, if your there for me!!!!

Hey Everyone!
My name is Victoria, I'm 21 and going to college in Minnesota. I'm really motivated to lose weight because I am going to Africa this summer for aiding the people there and I don't want to be a chub! I want to be able to help them without looking like I am greedy. I really hope through sparkpeople I can make it!

Hi,
My name is Cindy. I am 36, married, and a homeschooling mom of 3 beautiful kids. I am not new to SP but am new to this team. It has taken me a long time to realize that being beautiful DOES NOT necessarily mean being "thin" and that it includes inside as well as out. I am glad to have found this team.

Hi, I am new to the team but not to sp.

I just turned 50 last November, married with 2 fantastic kids.

I am working on loving and accepting myself as I am, with the expectation that this will help me to treat myself in a manner conducive to ensuring I reach my body's ideal weight. I have sworn off all diets.

Hi all! I'm new to this team and trying to lose 50 pounds by August. I'm also trying to boost my self-esteem (read: not completely hate myself because I'm fat), and this group seems like a great one to help with that goal :) At -50 pounds I hope I can describe myself as "voluptuous" or "buxom" rather than "fat." Here's to the journey!

BTW, that's a beautiful pic of Marilyn!

Hi all! I'm Stevie from upstate New York. I've set an initial goal of losing 50 pounds. I'll see how I feel when I get there and go from there. I love working out, but have lots of trouble with food. I guess I'm an emotional eater and I need to focus on trying to figure all that out. I look forward to "meeting" ya'll. emoticon

Hi I'm new to this team. I'm 44 and would like to lose 100 lbs by next year. Trying to be realistic. My birthday's in February and I will be 45. My goal is to have lost 15 lbs by then. I really am focused this time around because eating right has shown me that the weight does come off. Always looking for new recipes to try without meat maybe more fiber.

I've been a member here for quite a while, but never posted an intro, so I guess it's time for my own intro, and here goes...

Hi there. My name is Josie, I'm 23, and I live in New Jersey. I am going to school for special education and history. I pretty much wrote my life story (lol) on my Spark Page, so feel free to read it. Basically, I started out October 2007 at 305 pounds and got down to 275 by May 2008. Was stuck and not going anywhere (floating between 272-276) until October, and was down to 267 in November, but now I seem to be stuck again (between 271-269), as I'm currently about 270.

I enjoy reading people's comments, but I don't really write much, so please don't expect me to. If you write me (personally) I will write back, though, but I have so many things to do in a day that I don't really have time to check Spark Team message boards very often, but I am always there for you if you need me.

Anyway, that's my intro. If you have any questions or would like to chat, send me a Spark Mail or write on my Spark Page. It's nice to meet you all and best wishes to everyone for succeeding in your goals! :)

- Josie

Hi everyone,

My name is Stacey. I would like to lose 100 more pounds. I am currently a stay at home mom to a two year old, who will turn three in a couple of months. I have been married to my husband for 8 years. I am 32 years old. I am glad I found this group, it looks like a lot of fun!

Hello,

I am new to this group. I signed onto Sparkpeople awhile ago and have just been dipping my toes in. I now need to get serious.

I'm 41 with a wonderful husband and a 6 year old son. I don't want to pass on my bad habits to him. He is aleady a little bit chubby.

Its tough to be fat and I have been this way most of my life. I need to change for myself and my family. I want to do fun things like be able to take the rides at the amusement park with my little one or to buy clothes at a normal store. Or tell someone your size and not be embarrassed when they want to buy you a present.

I like this group. You seem to be genuine and fun. I look forward to being a part of it:)

About me - I hate these btw! I never know what to say...

I am a 23 year old dog trainer. I've been training for a good 6/7 years. On the 16th of October I lost my best friend. He supported me in all that I have done in my life and its been really hard to walk without him by my side. (hes my dog btw - the golden retriever on my page)

I've been fat pretty much my whole life and I've also stood in my own way with trying to lose weight. It scares me to be honest. I have started journaling/blogging to help my self through these feelings. Some other things I like to do - scrapbook, read, movies and I love music!

I guess if anyone has any questions for me then feel free to message me or whatever. :D

Hi all! I am new to the team. My name is Amy and I am 30. I need to lose quite a bit, but I am encouraged. I am having a hard time being patient right now because I am in a long distance relationship and I am going to be seeing him in a few weeks. I wish I had lost more... I am nervous about it, but I still dont want to go on a crash diet to lose between now and then, but it is tempting. I am looking forward to getting to know you. Have a great day!

Hi, I am Amy, and i'm new to the team. I really need to loose about 100 pounds but i will be more than happy to loose 80 or 85. I need some extra support and motivation in doing this. I get support and motivation from my husband, and my oldest son sometimes. he has other things to worry about-GIRLS-
and my other son I think is to young to worry about it. My mom and sister really live to far away so we can't do this together. Actually we could, they just don't really want to or at least not like I do. So any help i can get is great!! Thank you, Thank You, Thank You!!!
AMY

WITH HOPE AND DETERMINATION YOU CAN AND WILL SUCCEED AT ANYTHING YOU PUT YOU'R MIND TO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi newbies. Sorry, I have been gone (business trip with Hubby)but I am back and ready to spark again. I loved reading all the posts.
I agree about the "skinny". I enjoy curves and I think most guys do too. My husband is always saying Hope on Days Of Our Lives is too skinny now. My boys will comment about how skinny somene is. They are healthy boys and the girls on tv they think are good looking are the curvy ones.

Hi, I'm JoLana. I'm a 27 year old stylist and have been happily married for 1 year. I am wanting to lose about 80-90 pounds, but have set a goal of 50 in 1 year. I lose weight slowly and have been overweight-obese since I was 7. I carry more muscle than most women I know, so it's hard to say how much I want to weigh in the end. I do know, I don't want to be bony or "skinny" it's just not me. I would love to have a body like Kim Kardashian. I've embraced my curves!

Hello! I joined a week or so ago, but am just now getting around to introducing myself. I am big and beautiful!! I don't ever want to be SKINNY. I want to be HEALTHY. I know I'm not healthy right now. So I'm shooting for my healthy BMI range and we'll see how I feel when I'm there. I look forward to being a part of this team!

Welcome to all "Big and Beautiful" people! Whatever our size, we can be beautiful! Sometimes it is just our attitude about ourselves. I am 57 and overweight, but feeling good! Yesterday I had two men flirt with me. That felt good (I'm married, but it was great just to know...)
And I have discoverd over the years that the fashion industry think the pencil thin girl is the ideal, but real men will tell you that they like women with some "wiggle". LOL

Hi everyone! I'm 26 and have been on SP since May. I have a past of being inconsistent and this is the time for me to break free of that. I love the premise of this team and hope to adapt it for myself. I've had a hard time loving myself, I blame it on my size but even if I lost a bunch of this weight I know at this moment I would just find another reason to pick on myself. I want to love myself now and always, regardless of size, bad hair days, skin problems, or anything else that may come up. If you feel like it please come by my page and help me find a little more motivation, lol. I know I can't do this alone, so consider this my reaching out. Thanks team!

Hi all. Just joined your group yesterday and have been on sparkpeople almost a month. I'm a fun loving 57 and have been having fun with the spark teams. I'm big... how do I get back to feeling beautiful? I used to, but I don't anymore.

I'll be 40 in a few short days and want to make this this THE year. I've been married almost 12 years and have a daughter and a stepson (10 and 17). We also have 3 dogs (2 bassets and a german shorthair) a cat and a gerbil. So its definitely a houseful. I wanted to be in 1-derland by 40, but I'm beautiful regardless. I am however, determined to not spend the next decade in the 200's again. Welcome to all the other Big Beautiful Women here and good luck!!

I'm Not there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday!

Hi ladies,
My name is Terry and I have been a member of spark people since april of this year and I have lost weight,6 lbs so far. I absolutely love this site and I have learned so much from sparks and everyone is so motivational. There are days when I want to quit and don't feel like exercising but when I feel that way I just log on to spark people so I can get that boost to get me started. I'm new to this team and looking forward to getting to know everyone.

I have lost over 60 pounds, and feel great! Even though I have about 50-60 more to lose. I am starting to feel good about how I look! I am 46 years old and my skin is starting to show some age, but accepting that is my main challenge after losing the weight. I exercise almost every day, live in Wisconsin, and am so glad I found this team! Thanks leaders!

Here's a tidbit of information that can help us all feel pretty good & beautiful.

Think Marilyn Monroe is a legendary sex symbol & she wasn't a tiny little stick girl...she wore a size 14 & not a size 4! At size 14 & decades after her passing, you can still find pictures of her in malls & restaraunts & on website pages & practically anywhere. And not many people dispute that she was a beautiful woman. Beauty is more in how you see & project yourself than it is size. To be more beautiful all we need to do is smile & believe we're beautiful no matter what. It can be hard at first but if you tell yourself something everyday, like "I'm pretty. I love my eyes." then after a bit of time you really believe & become those things. Such as the self-defeating I don't feel like getting off the couch today, you say that everyday to yourself & you will find yourself spending most of your time on that couch. I am working on loving myself more & trying to see a positive to situations each day. Have a great day!

Smile...it's bound to brighten someone else's day!
Everywhere we go we should see the beauty that is there, even in the dreariest places we may see a star at night, the sun during the day, a tiny little plant growing, hear a bird singing, or maybe even see a breathtaking sight such as snow on a mountain or a stream full of life. We all should take a second to pay attention to these wonderful things.

Hi I'm Elysia & I'm 29. I am trying to embrace my own beauty just like I already embrace the beauty around me when I walk outside my home. Everywhere we go we should see the beauty that is there, even in the dreariest places we may see a star at night, the sun during the day, a tiny little plant growing, hear a bird singing, or maybe even see a breathtaking sight such as snow on a mountain or a stream full of life. We all should take a second to pay attention to these wonderful things even while we're hurrying to make appointments & meetings. All it takes is a glance & a second of appreciation for these simple things to add one more smile to our faces each day.
We still often times forget to really look at things & we usually don't see ourselves as beautifully as others see us or as the sights we see each day. I am working on this myself. Enjoy something simple today, even if for only a second.

Hi everyone, I name is Tammy, I'm 31 and live in Texas. I've been on Spark People for a little over a month and I'm loving it! I had lost 100 pounds but started gaining back last summer and have now gained 60 pounds back. I'm ready to take those pounds off again!! I joined this group because I need to start caring how I look again. Since I started gaining weight back, I've stopped wearing makeup or fixing my hair... no more of that, I can be overweight and beautiful at the same time!!

Hey All! I am Samantha. I am 27, married, working and going to school full time. I joined SP a while back, but have finally gotten serious about it. I was glad to find a team that is full of women like me! I have some weight to lose, but if I didn't lose a pound I would still be beautiful! And so would all of you!

Samantha
