Hi,

I'm Tammy. I have two kids. My 24 year old daughter is married and expecting her first child. My 12 year old son is driving us all crazy!

I'm looking forward to the "support group" aspect of SparkPeople, as I get very little support at home.

Hello to all

I'm Harmony
mom of 3 kids, two at 12 and one at 15.
I have a ton to take off, but have made it a priority for this year.
Trying to make or take time for the things I need to do for myself is hard for me. I am going to make a big effort to see that my needs get met this year.

Hi Everyone! My name is Brandy, I'm 35 and a mother to three kids aged 13, 10 and 8. I'm looking to lose about 60+ lbs and keep it off by eating right and exercising. It'll be nice to have the common interests of fellow moms to motivate me throughout this process. :)

Hi my name is Tamara, I am a 39 almost 40year old wife and mother. I have three sons ages 20, 18 and 12. My 12 year old is an extremely picky eater. He literally doesn't like anything that looks funny or mixed together. I have been overweight for the last five years or so and am hoping by joining spark people it will give me the motivation I need to try and start losing some of this weight. I look forward to supporting each other and getting to know you.

Hi my name is Marion I have a blened family with the youngest two of five being 15 yrs old. One girl and one boy and neither one wants to eat healthy they think I am being mean to make them eat that way. I have lost 169 pounds in the last two weeks and find it hard to keep going sometimes for the last round of 96 pounds.

Hello. Im jennifer and have thirty pounds to loose by summer. I have a 21 month old and a 12 year old. I am wondering when the 12 year old will stop hating me at random moments. He is an emotional roller coaster. Does it get any easier??

Hi! My name is Megan and I am the mother of 2 girls who are 16 and 11 1/2 (yes, there is alot of drama in my house). I am new to spark people and I am looking for a support system that will help me stay motivated past the 10% weight loss mark. I have lost and gained the same 20 lbs so many times I can not keep track of it. Now is my time for change! emoticon

Hello and Blessings to everyone.
My name is Jasmine. I'm 33 married & mother to 2 (A 2 year old girl and a 12 almost 13 year old boy). I've been on and off spark since I discovered this site almost 2 years ago.
I decided that this time I'm making everyone in the house follow along with me. I feel we should all work on achieving a healthier lifestyle.
I look forward to getting involved & being active with the team as staying motivated is my biggest problem. emoticon

hi my names jenny i am a soon to be 32 year old in 11 days. lol i am divorced november 2009 no hard feelings there though im glad its over with. I have two beautiful daughters meghan 11 and alyssa 5. I have a boyfriend of almost 2 years and he is wonderful. i am glad to have found him. lol we met on a internet dating website. come to find out he lived like 10 minutes away. over the 2 years though i have gained like 50 pounds and i am not happy about it. I had a job change where i went from a very physical job to a desk job. Im glad for the career change but i hate that i gained all that weight. I mean i was on the right track i was going to school and working third shift at a grocery store. i lost like 30 pounds in that time and felt wonderful and then i changed jobs gained that back plus another 30 it sucks thats why this year it has got to change.

Hi Schatzy,
I can relate, I have a 15 year old boy that is very emotional. He has told me he'd rather be in a foster home than with me, but I've reminded him of how great he actually has it at home and anything alternative would be horrible. Who else is going to let him get away with the crap he dishes out?

I also have a 20 yr old daughter living on her own and doing great, an 18 year old nephew who has lived with me since he was 9 and an 8 year old daughter. All my kids are wonderful, they just have their moments. I think your daughter's moods have a lot to do with her age and seeing how far she can push you. Your other kids see the attention (even though it is negative) she is getting and are also pushing your limits. I don't know, kids are all different. What works with one, doesn't always work for another. I try to let my kids be themselves, I only fight the battles that are important to me and try to shrug off the stuff that doesn't matter (especially the things they say, because they say it just to get a reaction, don't take it personal). Nobody ever said raising kids was easy. I keep telling myself, I will reap the rewards of being a parent when my kids grow up to be parents themselves and they see how hard it is. Yeah, they can be brats right now, but I truly believe I am giving them everything they need to be wonderful adults...one of these days they will come to me and say how much they appreciated me when I was raising them...it's just waiting for them to reach that maturity level. Goiid luck to you with your kids and your weight loss, I look forward to chatting with you more. Have a great day.

Hi! I'm Pal, mother of a 12 1/2 yo boy. Talk about hormonal. I thought only girls PMSed.

I've never raised a boy before and not sure what is normal or what to expect so any and all help is welcome.

I homeschool and it's a blessing having him home. I have two other children 6 and 18 yo girls.

I look forward to being in this group.

Pal...pondering if I should allow son to shave his peach fuzz.

Hello everyone, my name is Tom and I joined Spark people a few days ago and so far this site has been great. I have a 14 year old son who lives with me and my wife of two years. Boy I thought changing diaper's was hard I think that was much easier than these days but that's for other topics. I look forward to chatting with all of you.

hi I'm 31 and Mama to a 12 year old. I am a single Mum and live in NZ. Just stopped by to introduce myself and would love to make friends with people in similar situations to me (if there are any!!) and anyone else who wants to make contact:)

I am who I am. I am also who I was. I am definitely who I am going to be.

Hi Everyone,

I just signed up today so I am new to the site. I'm still trying to read all the information and find my way around. I have four beautiful children ages 6 to 19. I would like to lose some weight that I have been carrying around for the past couple of year and set a good example for my kids, especially my three daughters. I am hoping to get a lot of support and encouragement from this group and then do the same for others as well.

Hello everyone. My name is Virginia but my friends call me Vee. I am a (almost) 40 year old mother of 4 wonderful children who just happens to be raising my two grandsons. I own and operate my own low income daycare out of my home, I'm guessing that is a reason it's so hard for me to lose weight cause I don't have to leave my home for work. I am always up and down and playing with the children but for some reason it's not helping.

I am hoping that this will now give me the insentive to actually do more then what I am doing to help me lose the weight that I want to lose.

I started out at 288 (last Thursday 11-12-09) and as of Tuesday (11-17-09) I was down to 280. I put that I wanted to get down to 200 for a year's span. After that I will be restarting to get down about another 30-40 pounds.

Well, that is about all for now. If I can think of anything else I will post it.

Hello everyone,
I am a mother of 5 wonderfully different children. My oldest is 24 and my youngest is 17. My oldest was an incredible challenge through the teenage years. (I eat when I am emotional or stressed.) My youngest is proving to be an incredible challenge herself, but in a completely different way. So once again I am turning to the comfort of food to help me through.
Now that I have found Sparks, I am committed to change these habits. I would like to not only survive the teenage years but many more as well.

Thanks for having me,
Amy

Speaking of my little darling, the photo that is showing is of her and her puppy! I don't know how I managed that.

Hey there! My name is Lisa, I changed the way I eat in July and just now found out about this site. I've lost 35 lbs in the last 17 weeks and am super motivated. I'm so glad for this site, since I think people I know might be sick of hearing about my diet (especially if their not taking care of themselves). I really need to surround myself by people with good energy.
What am I saying? I'm in a group with teens! ack! hee hee hee
Hopefully your a motivating group. *big grin*

edit for spelling
