Welcome, Eileen; I'm Kristi. I'm glad to be on this journey with you. The team goes through spurts of high activity; there are a handful of us who try to stay faithful through it all. Have a great week.

Hi, I'm Eileen. Originally from Maine and now living in Florida along the Indian River. I'm not new to Sparkpeople. Started way back a long time ago and have been on and off. On now and very determined to get to my goal weight. Saw this team a couple of times and decided to join. Hope we can get it up and running! Having friends to walk the weight loss trail with makes it so much easier.

Good morning team,

My name is Sharon and I am from Clarksville Arkansas. I recently met one of your team mates passing through. We had a good time talking and said I might enjoy the Live It team. I have been with Spark people since March 2010. Since that time I have lost 30 pounds and love the new life style change that came with it. I still have a way to go but know I will push through and achieve my goals.

Hope everyone has an emoticon Monday with whatever you do.

Thank you DMC10241 for inviting me to your team. I look forward to getting to know the rest of you.

Hello, this is Lee from Michigan. I found this team through the 60-day Challenge. I've been on SP for about 3 years, got serious in '09 and lost 25# -- then life interrupted and though I have remained socially active on SP, I have not been focused very much on weight loss. I have pretty much maintained the loss, however, and really want to get to a healthy BMI in 2011! I will be in and out of this team for the summer as I'm a leader on another challenge. However, I like the spiritual focus and fellowship on this team! I find that my lack of consistency begins in the spiritual realm, and then extends to the rest of my life...go figure! emoticon

I am looking forward to getting to know you all better and to be an encouragement to you as you encourage me in my daily walk. emoticon

Welcome Amy. This team is supportive, encouraging, and hilarious. The challenges are great, and boy do Wildflowerr, _Rachel, and DMC10241 challenge us. It is great though. The challenges have helped keep me moving this year.

Hi Penney! I'm not making any effort yet to buff up my biceps. It's all about butt-shrinkin' right now. But hey--she does qualify for "guns to envy," that is for certain!

I am going to enjoy this team a lot! Lots of clear-thinking women, I see. That will hopefully rub off on me! I'll go and visit your page now. Thanks, too, for the welcome!

Well, Amy, I am just Penney I have decided that I will never have the bicepts that Wildflowerrs does, but she is a great motivator. This team is the team that has become the core of spark people for me after multiple years with the program. We are so glad to have you on the team! emoticon emoticon

Hi. I'm Ellen. Okay. No. I'm Amy. I have had maybe 10 other Spark names other the past 3 years, but I have found out that just being me makes my user name easiest to remember, and telling myself the truth the best place to start, so that is where it all "began again" this past April, after going through food-allergy testing for too many health problems. Since April 22nd, I've dropped several pounds. I can no longer eat grains--I'm allergic to them all--but withdrawal STANK! It's lean meats, veggies, and fruits for me. Water, tea, and coffee occasionally.

I am getting into walking and biking, and I enjoy Pilates class on the reformer, too. I saw Wildflowerr's bicep pump and thought, "hey! I want guns like that!" So here I am....I love the Lord, I love the idea of restoring this ole' fat temple with Christ at the center command post, and here I GOooooooooo! Let's do this thing!

Hi to everyone from Northern Wisconsin. I got an invite to this team from Kristi--Hi Kristi and LOVE you! My name is Susan, I'm married to my best friend [going on 22 years], and I have seven super sons and 1 delightful daughter. I also educate my children at home [will be graduating my 3rd one this year]. I started [Oct. 2008] my journey weighing 188#'s and my weight this morning was 127#'s. I'm 2#'s away from my goal weight. I joined SP in July 2010 and this has made ALL the difference to a changed mind! God has used SP so much to change my heart and mind and habits. Praises to His Name alone who gives us the victory. I LOVE the concept of 'live-it' and plan to use that phrase from now on! emoticon

Blessings to you all, and I look forward to being involved as much as I can handle with all that is on my plate.

Susan--wife to Dennis and mom to 8 super blessings.

Thanks so much, everyone for your support and encouragement! I can't tell you how much better I feel now that I've wittled my teams down to two...what a relief! I love that I have found a team of friends and fellow believers that are so close-knit and working towards a common goal...to glorify and honor God with our lives. Thank you so much for the welcome!

Welcome to the team. This is a great team for growing closer to God, getting us to eat healthier and work out, and be accountable to each other. The challenges are great, and help keep us on track. We have wonderful team leaders who are encouraging, and great examples. I'm glad you chose this as one of your teams to stick with, and look forward to getting to know you.

So glad you joined our team. I have to admit, when I started Sparkpeople October 2009, I never in my wildest dreams expected it to bring me closer to God. But I am ever so thankful that it did. He certainly moves in mysterious ways.

So many years was wasted trying to loose weight on my own or with diet pills or weight loss drinks, you name it, I tried it. I knew that whenever there was a trial in my life, I was to give it up to God, yet never put the connection together that loosing weight and being healthy needed to be put in His hands as well.

God is a totally amazing God and to Him I give all the glory. For without Him, I am nothing.

Hi! emoticon

1st off, emoticon one your recent exceptance of Jesus Christ as your Personal Savoir! emoticon emoticon emoticon That Is emoticon

With that said, I can sO relate to your situation with food! emoticon emoticon
I have given up drugs, cigarettes, and alcohol, but food still has a strangle hold on me! But, I rebuke in the the precious name of Jesus! Because I know that I can do ALL things through Him who strengthens me!
Know that I have lost all the weight I needed to lose, I have been trying to maintain it. I still find myself running to the comfort of the pantry when I get stressed! AND until I get that under control, I will always have a battle keeping the weight off! Sometimes I find myself not wanting to control it! That's when I know my Free will is getting in the way again! God give me the strength to conquer my own Free will, in Jesus name! Amen

Blessings,
Your Sister in Christ and new emoticon

Hello everyone...

I'm a new Christian as of last October after not wanting to have anything to do with God for 20 years. Since my conversion, I'm not able to get enough of Him! I've struggled with what I now know as gluttony for a long time and have called it an eating disorder. I'm now part of another team to help me work through some of the stuff that drives me to eat and allow me to grow closer to God. My greatest desire is to live a life that glorifies and honors Him, and I know that I don't do it where food is concerned. I have decided that even if I were to never lose a pound, my prayer is that I can develop a healthy relationship with food and that as a result my relationship with God will grow deeper. I know that I can idolize food and it gets in the way of my relationship with Him.

I've been a member of Spark for about a month and have found myself overwhelmed by all of the teams that I had joined. I was excited to get involved with Spark and change everything all at once. Well, guess what? It didn't work! Now that I've settled back a bit, I've trimmed down the team membership to focus on two. I'm a full-time student and part-time employee, so I don't have a lot of time to spend on the Internet. What I was finding is that I would get onto Spark and I could lose hours of time just looking around and learning things. While it was a good learning experience, what I know is that numbing out on the internet isn't what God has planned for me, any more than numbing out with the food. Balance is one of the things I'm learning on this journey. So, while I may not be online for very long every day, I will do my best to participate and encourage!

Thanks so much for being here and I look forward to getting to know you! emoticon

Welcome Liza! I can also relate to trying to get rid of the baby weight. My youngest just turned 8 months old and I trying to lose this weight for good. We are around the same weight and I can't wait to get to 199. You can do it. Let me know if you ever want to chat or buddy up. This is a great group of ladies and I know that you will find plenty of support here. God Bless emoticon

Hi everyone, I'm Liza and have 2 wonderful daughters, 5 and 1, that I want to see grow-up. I went to the Dr. about 6 months ago and my blood pressure was ever so slightly elevated so I started thinking (and it took me 5 months to think) that I really, really needed to do something. After my two pregnancies, I never lost more than just the baby and placenta weight!!! I actively started SP late last month and have lost 11 lbs so far. It's a work in progress, but I want this to be a lifestyle change and not a temporary fix. Thanks for all the encouragement you all put out and all the wonderful information. emoticon

Amen CIERAPOET!
If we all pray and believe and hold each other up, how can we fail?

Romans 8:28 (NKJV)
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

Romans 8:31
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

Blessings to you my New LIVE IT~ Sisters!

Hi, I'm Kristi. I've been with Sparkpeople for two years and a half year, but struggle with staying consistent. I live just outside Fairbanks, Alaska so it is hard working out in the winter. I have slowly stocked up on workout DVDs. I have a weakness for chocolate, pizza, and ice cream. I am slowly overcoming those weaknesses with God and my family's help(check out my blog about my discipliner). I am lazy, and working to overcome that also.

Hello Everyone! I'm not new to Spark, but I haven't been able to keep myself on the wagon, so I'm back again.

This sure looks like a wonderful group of people! I know making some friends who will encourage and check on me will be a big help. I'm bad about getting sidetracked by life, but I want to do better!

I need to lose about 100 lbs, but I've set my starting goal at 18. That will put me at 200. I'm only 5 foot, though, so I have a long way to go.

I see lots of people talking of running. I'm curious how that came about. I mean, did they start when they were still pretty heavy? Did they get really good at walking first? Being able to run is a dream of mine, you see. As I've been very heavy for most of my life, I've never been able to. I'm also pretty curious to see what I look like under all this weight. LOL

If anyone is interested in the job of drill sergeant, let me know! LOL

Have a super day!
Shannon

I also use the Wii. Not so much now, as I did when I first started LIVING!
But I used it last night to watch the Biggest Loser. I set it up on Free step and get hand weights, and Free Step for an hour while watching it. I find it sO motivating! emoticon emoticon
There really isn't a short cut around tracking, unless when you track your food you can save favorites, or make groupings of foods that you know you eat often, and you can make a strength training "group" of exercises as well.
Maybe some other SPARKERS will post some of their tracking secrets for us both to use! It is very time consuming for sure, but I found tracking to be my lifeline! Especially FOOD! emoticon
Let me know if you have any questions...I have to go pack now! I am off to your Aunt and Kuzin's emoticon I AM SO SYKED!!!
Love and Blessings,

Hey! My name is Lana, and I'm new to the team! I am on my own weight loss journey for my own reasons, and so far I've lost 21 pounds and I am absolutely STOKED and motivated to make it 41! My doctor set my weightloss goal at 41 pounds total, saying this would be a "very healthy" weight for me, however, that will put my weight at 160, and I've weighed less than that before and felt I was still a little too pudgy. But I'm taking this one step at a time, and once I get to my initial goal, I will decide whether I should maintain or continue losing! It was very strongly recommended that I join this group by TLMASSIE, who is my aunt, and AIMEEM77, who is my cousin (and who recently dropped a whopping 100 pounds, sending my motivation through the roof! Congratulations once again Aimee, btw!). Anyways, I was told that this is a WONDERFUL, sweet, and supportive group, and that is just what I need! I have a bit of a problem logging my fitness minutes, because most of my workouts are done either using Wii Fit or EA Active on the Wii, and most of the cardio/strength training I do on there doesn't seem to be preloaded on there. I'm not the most patient person in the world, so I kind of just skip the logging of the fitness, and I'm also very lazy on the nutrition logging front...which is something I really plan to work on and improve! So, just remember: sometimes if my stats aren't showing my workouts/nutrition, it doesn't mean I'm not working out or making healthy choices LOL. Maybe some of you on here could toss me some advice on that? Anyways, I am happy to be a part of this group, and looking forward to sharing my goals and getting/giving inspiration to/from all of you, especially with real blood connections with some of the members behind the keyboards! Nice to meet all of you! Let's Live~it!

Hi, my name is Tonya. I have been here for 9 months and still trying to reach my first goal. I do know that life itself is a challenge and anything you add to it, can be a little overwhelming. I am going to give everything that I have to become the woman that God has created me to be



Philippians 2:9-11

9Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 10that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Hello, my name is Gina. I am a mother of 3 beautiful little girls who are the joy of my life. I joined Sparks & Wildflowers because of Rachel - a fantastic role model if I do say so. :) I have been overweight my entire life. I have been on a diet since I was 12 and have dieted myself to 221 lbs. I want to make this change for a couple of reasons: 1. I want to be a good example so that hopefully my children avoid some of the pain that I have gone through and 2. I want to strengthen my relationship with Christ so that I turn to Him instead of food when I am emotional. I am very excited to part of this group. emoticon

Hi all --
I actually found this team cuz I mis-typed RUN as "RU" into the search enginge and your team note starts with "RU looking..." - and I'm so glad I did! Your team goals are so common sense and I love the 'live-it' attitude. I also feel a very strong need to hang out with other Christians who think that Jesus is just awesome and active in their lives! :-)

I lost 65#s, reaching goal last year - and then have gained back 15-20# this past year - it was a heck of a year, highlighted by my donating a kidney to my husband 4 months ago. God was amazingly faithful through all of this (why did I expect anything else?!?!?!) and now I'm ready to focus on my fitness again...

Looking forward to getting to know you all...

Love in Christ, becky

Hi, my name is Freda. I just discovered this team and from simply reading a few of the posts, I knew I had to join. So much valuable information here and everybody are so positive! I've been worrying a lot about stress in my life recently (I am a student), but by the looks of it, God sent me to the right place. Isn't Jesus wonderful!

I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. - Philippians 4:13

Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's. - 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Yes, walks in the woods are def. a workout! Better than running if you ask me. But, I can't run! LOL...
You should start using that gym ASAP! Even if it's just 10 min. a day! The strength training is great!
AND you are right about the kids, they grow up way~way too fast! emoticon

Thank you. Yes, the boys are very active and always up to something! I cherish it, though, because it is a lot of fun and I know it won't last forever. I don't work out with my husband because I don't like running. However, he has offered to teach me how to lift weights and I plan on taking him up on that soon. We have a nice home gym in our basement, so I really should use it. We do like to take hikes together in the woods and parks where we live. That is fun and it is definitely a work out!

Welcome!
IT is great to have you! With those children, they most really keep you busy!
I have 5 of my own. All just about grown. The youngest just turned 18, but he will be around for a while! He is developmently delayed.
Then they range in age from 20 to 33!
I started way to young! LOL...
It's great to have the support of your husband too. Do you guys get to work out together? My husband is also disabled so he can not work out with me. Sometimes he walks around the block when he feels up to it.
Well, I am for you anytime you have a question, or just need to talk!
Blessings,
wildflowerr

Just realized I need to introduce myself. I joined the team recently. I am a stay-home-mom in Ohio with four sons ages 1, 3, 6, & 8. I finally "get it" and am working hard at transforming myself into a healthy person. I am motivated by my children, as I want to be able to run and play with them like I should without feeling winded and horrible. I am also motivated by my husband as he lost about 40 lbs. and has kept it off. He is an avid runner and lift weights and encourages me every day to do my best. I am trying and learning new things every day on my journey, and I hope and pray I achieve the results I want.

Hello, I, too, joined in October and still feel I'm in the learning stage but given the fact that all life is a "learning stage" I guess I'm right on track. I want to loose the weight to be around to see my daughter grow up to the beautiful woman I know she will be some day. I want to see her get married and have beautiful babies of her own. I want to die of old age and I want to "LIVE-it" until then!

Hi and emoticon
I have noticed myself, that I have not been making all my nutritional goals! I found that it is a balancing act trying to meet all the requirements. sO, we just do the best that we can, and work towards improving the areas that are lacking! emoticon
I thought that I had a bad vitamin D deficit, but someone at sewing B tonite brought it to my attention that 15 min in the sun gives you your Full requirement for the day! Isn't God emoticon !!!

So, do the best that you can, and let God do the rest!

Blessings,
wildflowerr

P.S.- I have found that if you are getting your requirements of fresh fruits emoticon & veggies emoticon every day, You can make great emoticon leaps in eating healthier right there!

Hi, my name is Rachel and I'm so glad you have started this team. I with you! I don't want a temporary fix! I want God to be glorified in all my life and unfortunately He hasn't especially in the area of eating healthy. I started Sparks around Christmas and although I'm staying in my calorie range, I don't make the nutritional goals. I need changes not only for my life but for the ones the Lord has given me. I'm a homeschooling mom of 4. Three boys and a girl. I'm concerned. If I'm not getting what I need, certainly my family isn't either. I'm looking forward to learning and encouraging one another on this journey. Blessings on you, Wildflower!

This is a team for people who are sick & tired of yo-yo dieting! We are saying NO! to being on a die-it, & YES to being on a Live~it! We want a healthy life style change, not just a temporary thing that allows us to get in that pair of jeans we wanted, or be able to wear a bathing suit comfortably on our next vacation! We want this change in us to be permanent!

Amen! Thank God for giving us the ability to do this.

I am always here for you! To talk, or if you have questions.
