Hi,
I re-joined SP less than a month ago and am so inspired by the positive people and encouraging words. I'm grateful for all the wisdom you can offer.

I am a recently single, mother of three and in my late 40s, living outside of Atlanta, Georgia and grew up in sunny southern California. About 20-30 pounds overweight. Not terribly bad at food choices but am looking to improve my mental well-being. The weight is secondary and temporary, I'm comfortable with that fact. Glad to be here.

Hi Thomas, I'm new to this team, too. I've been on SP for many years but just got more active this past year. I live in FL, but lived in the DFW area for about 8 years in the 90s. I LOVE your neck of the woods. It's were the best and BIGGEST Renaissance Festival in the country is located!!!!! Very happy place to forget about the "real world" for a day or a weekend emoticon
I look forward to getting to know you and the rest of the folks on this team....exchange interesting perspectives and get a little happiness boost when the day hasn't been so ideal.

Hope your weekend is spectacular!

Greetings World,

My name is Thomas and I call Houston/Katy Texas my home. I have been a very negative person for most of my life. I am told that I never used to worry before my mother got sick and succumbed to cancer by the time I was 13. I do not say this for sympathy, I am 45 now and I live with a very negative attitude and I am changing that. I joined with you all because I know this world needs more positive people and more positive information and stories out there. I have had enough of all the negative this worlds people have put out there and i want to be one to take part in a change. A change in my life for better health and a change in the world by getting away form the negative attitude and expressing an attitude of hope, joy and positivism. I hope to make some great friends here. After-all, Iron sharpens Iron!

I am currently doing two official SP challenges.
SP Official Stress Busting Challenge (in week TWO), and SP Official Better Sleep Challenge (in week TWO)

Here are the changes I have made so far:
1. Planning meals on weekly basis
2. Drinking 2.2 L of H2O per day
3. Keeping fruit in bowls throughout my house
4. Tracking my food calories
5. Working out every day
6. Eating 5 fruits or vegetables each day

I am working on new workouts and I have a 1200 calorie a day diet. TIME TO DO THIS!

Hi Wanda,

I am only very new to blogging so most of the time find it difficult to know what to write about, and end up rattling on about things in my life. My main aim is to produce inspiring blogs which give a message.

I look forward to reading yours too

Hugs back to you and the rest of the team

Wanted to welcome all of you to our team. I'm sorry it's taken so long to get here and say WELCOME, but welcome you are. We meet everyday in the Chit Chat lounge, so do drop in there and join in the posts. It's how we get to know each other and offer the support and encouragement that we all need.

You will find that we are from all over. I'm from Alberta Canada but many are from California all the way across the states to the Eastern seaboard.

We are happy to have you here and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Someone will always take the time to help you out.

Hugs,
Wanda

Hi - I'm from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canadal. I stumbled on SparkPeople by accident and decided that it was the tool for me. I love the resources, the coaches, the ease of use, and the program. I joined SparkCoach and I highly recommend it as the daily interaction is very beneficial. While I need to lose weight - probably about 50 to 75 pounds, my real struggle has always been exercise. I'm just one of those people who doesn't get much thrill out of activity. So I decided that exercise would be my number one focus in the program. While I signed up for SP about a year ago, I've really given it my full attention since November. I'm happy to report that I go to the Fieldhouse (walking track) about 3 times a week, and walk around 45 minutes each time. AND the biggest thing is that I'm starting to enjoy it. I certainly enjoy the positive feelings swirling in my head. I listen to Podcasts while I'm walking - interviews with some of the world's most interesting people and that fills my major passion - life long learning. I purchased the Activity Tracker and love it too.

All in all, it's a great tool, and is helping me stay focussed and committed.

I'm strong, capable and ready to face the sun.

Hi everyone!

I noticed the name of this team and just had to come check it out. Last year, I joined SparkPeople and it has helped me change some habits. Haven't tried blogging yet, but it's on my to-do list for this new year, so why not start by joining this team?

I live in Florida with my husband and our four kids, just finished my Bachelor's degree yesterday, and I am very active with our oldest daughter's Girl Scout troop.

Life is made up of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad, but the bad things don't spoil the good things or make them unimportant.

Hello, I live in sunny Southern California and I am a sunny person who is upbeat most of the time. I am really glad that SP let me know about this team because it will help reinforce the positives in my life. I am new to blogging, and I am enjoying the process. My first blog was done because SparkGuy told me to, and I have done several in the last month.

Good day! I am here from blustery west Michigan. Where the polar vortex has brought beauty over the last weeks, and a broken treadmill has reduced my exercise to merely strength training and a few attempts at cardio. It's warming up though, so today I will begin my daily walks through my neighborhood. How exciting is that!?

Let's see, sorry about the little "tangent" there. I'm mom to five amazing children, two of which are grown now. My husband is the most supportive person I know, though he is no fan of exercise he is very encouraging to me.

I am also a writer and the family historian, which means my desk and I are great friends ... I'm working on severing or at least taming that relationship by regular exercise and better self-esteem. I'm slowly working on getting out in the real world where I can shine, rather than hiding behind my computer.

Anyway, I was directed here by a suggestion on Spark Coach and having read through some threads I am thrilled to have found all of you! I'm looking forward to an encouraging future with you.

I joined the team a week or so ago and haven't really been on the message boards yet, so I thought it was time to introduce myself. I have been on SP for almost 7 months and even though I haven't reached as many goals as I would like to have reached by this time, I remain positive and committed to the program and philosophy.
I joined this team because I believe in blogging as a way to work through your own issues and to see what others are going through. The idea of "positive blogging" interests me because I am committed to making 2014 a year to "CREATE POSITIVE CHANGE" in my life as well as to hopefully inspire others to do the same. You must purposely choose to be positive in this world where we are overwhelmed with the negative attitudes and opinions and messages.

Looking forward to sharing this journey with you.

Hi everyone,

I just joined and I'm wanting to blog, but just haven't done it yet.

I joined SP a year ago, and was only on it for a few weeks, before getting overwhelmed. I've been back since last month, and I'm finally getting it together. I feel like blogging, but I think I just don't know what to talk about first. I'm making some notes to myself to organize my thoughts for the first one. Then I know after that it should be a lot easier. I just have so much to talk about, and just need a good place to start. I'm thinking if I just 'introduce myself' that should be a good one to start with.

Anyway, I'm glad I found this team. I look forward to learning a lot, and getting inspired along the way!

Hi all!

Happy to be here via Spark Coach program.

emoticon emoticon This looks like a place I would like to be! I like to be positive. Of course, I have my moments, but by and large I am an optimist. I might be in the minority. Most of my life, I've been stubbornly optimistic! Lol. I hope to be motivated and inspired by you all! This will be a nice change for me. Although, there it's important to let go of negativity, sadness, frustration and even anger, there is always room for being positive, loving the world, happiness, joy and of course. even being funny! Lol. emoticon

As I said, I'm happy to be here!

Hello Team Members! I'm Stephanie (Steph) and, though terribly shy, I truly enjoy sharing with and encouraging anyone (or anything, for that matter) who might be looking for some up-beat backup. I joined the team last week but haven't gathered up the courage to "talk" to anyone before now. Oh! Also am totally NON-computer savy, so it does take me a while to figure out where everything is AND remember how the heck I got there! Bear with me and I WILL get better at all of the above. Am truly looking forward to getting to know you all. GOOD GRIEF! I feel as though I know you all already! Will work on the Chit Chat Lounge "challenge" first!

Welcome to the positive bloggers team. Visit us daily in the Chit Chat lounge as that is where we gather. Ask if you have questions, we will do what we can to help you out. Your positive journey will be a personal journey of learning to seek and find your positives in every situation. As you continue to work towards the goal of being positive it becomes easier and easier. The Law of Attraction at work...what you focus on is what you draw to yourself. Looking forward to getting to know you.

Hi I'm Risa...I need to be positive! I always thought that I was, but actually I tend to go over unimportant negative things - usually at work, and that gets me to over eat or eat off plan.

If I can tackle this..I think I can finally lose weight.

I'm trying to release all that so I can finally lose weight..look forward to learning with this team.

Hi, I'm Jess. I'm very happy to be on this team! Sometimes I'm like one of those carts you get in a supermarket with the bum wheel that always want to pull off to the right or the left and if you don't keep an eye on it, you'll end up engaging a pile of canned goods or something else. My mind is like that. I know I can chose my thoughts but often I forget to steer and there goes that cart!

Looking forward to cultivating the good with you all.

Hi, I'm Lauren. I have a positivity Facebook page rather than a blog. I'm hoping to find inspiration and support to keep the positivity going. Some days are easier than others, as you all probably already know. We are trying out a new positivity model at work, though some days it turns into, "I'm positive this will fail." I've decided that I can present as upbeat or as a crab, and I much prefer the world see me as the former.

Oh, and I took a photo of Pollyanna a week or so ago when I was in her hometown: www.flickr.com/photos/lauren0099/951

Hi..I'm Terry and I've been searching for some positive, motivating teams...Life has enough negative people who just don't get it...I'd like to work with people who have a positive outlook on life and in supporting each other...I'm here for anyone who needs me...
God bless all of you!

Fall seven times...get up eight.

Be still and know I am God

I'm Shannon and I am working on changing my negative self talk to positive self talk. I am a happy person, smart, creative, active, and caring. It takes daily declarations to make this behavioral change and I am doing it! emoticon

I am Brigette. I want to start trying to focus on the positive, instead of negative.

Hi. I've been visiting SparkPeople on and off for a few years. Finally decided to get serious about it this summer and have been loving it. The SparkCoach has really helped me stay positive and motivated. I'm a school teacher, so I usually do better during the summer anyway. I'm hoping that by reading and posting more positives, that the goodness will help me through the school year as well. I like thinking happy thoughts, but deal with mild depression and moderate anxiety, so it's good to have some reminders to stay positive. Thanks in advance for all your positiveness. :D

Hi! I'm Trent.

I've been on SparkPeople for about 4 years now and am finally on the road to meeting my goals of 195 pounds and 15% body fat.

Blogging has been a big part of my journey, so I'm happy to find others who feel the same way. I will very occasionally post blogs that have "The Power of Negative Thinking" in the title or an actual titled "Pity Party" blog when I'm frustrated. I would ask you not to read these, given the nature of the team. The overwhelming majority of my blogs are positive.

Please let me know if my blogs do or don't fit the team's vision. I won't be offended if you ask me to leave.

Thanks!

Hello!

My name is Rhiannon. I love blogging and this group seemed right up my alley.

I don't use my sparkpeople blog too much. I blog on wordpress and tend to favor that for every type of blog I write.

This summer I'm working through a family summer bucket list that I wrote for my family. Some on the bucket list are for me alone, others are for my daughter, some are for my husband and I together and the rest is meant for us to do as a family (or as much of a family as we can be with my husband working overtime -- which he does a lot in the summer).

The link to my wordpress blog is in my signature, whenever I write a blog for here I'll post the link..or copy and paste it to the sparkpeople blog.
