I'm the heaviest I've ever been in my life and it's time I get back to a weight I know will be healthier for me. I'm working towards getting down to 185 lbs. I won't be thin but I'll be much healthier than I am now.

I think I've been here a time or two. I lose the weight but can't seem to keep it off. I'm hoping to change things this time. I'm currently at 202 so hopefully will not be here long.

I am new here. I just moved into the 9th floor after a long stay in 210 ville. I am anxious to return to onderland after a 6 month absence. I look forward to any help you can give me. I have some disabilities that make me a slow loser and not able to exercise daily but I am really trying to do 5x week.
I plan to enjoy my stay but hope to change floors sooner rather than later. emoticon

Been moving through the ville's for the past few months. Started my journey at 258 last march and I am now down to 209.2. Just 9 more pounds until Onederland! It really has been a trip but I am looking forward to my final goal weight of 180 by the end of this year!

Hi Julie & everyone. I am finally here. I was here once before about a year ago. I have been wondering around losing & gaining 20 lbs. for the last year. But I am so happy to be here. This will bring me to one of my biggest goals, ONEDERLAND.which I have been dreaming about almost since I started this journey. I hope my stay won't be to long! Linda emoticon emoticon

Hi everyone! I hate this -ville...it just seems to keep sucking me back in. This time I would like to leave FOREVER. I seem to get to Onederland, then quit, because I made, next thing I know I've moved back to 220-ville! Over the past 6 weeks I have managed to re-lose 15 pounds and have 15 to go to get back to where I was last year. This time I will not give up once I get there.

Hi, my name is Meghan. A couple years ago, I used sparkpeople and lost 40 lbs (half of my overall goal). I started struggling and completely fell off the wagon. I nearly cried this morning when I realized that I had gained all but 3 of those pounds back. I'm now at 227 lbs. I'm nervous about doing this again. I know how hard it is and how slow it can be at times.

I'm back! I checked out of here a few months ago, but then injured my knee and have gained the weight back due to inactivity from having to heal. Trying to get back out again, but until then I guess this will be my new home. :) I've got about 9 pounds to go!

Hello Everyone! My name is Ann and I am new to the team and semi new to spark people. I have tried Spark before and gave up before I gave myself a chance. I have a new attitude and am hoping to stay in this hotel only a short time.

Can't wait to meet everyone!

Hi there! Im new to Spark and new to this team. I currently weigh 244 (as of monday, down from 246) and have not seen a number below 200 in YEARS!!!! I had my son when I was 15 and was immediately put on the Depo shot. I stayed on that shot all through high school and by the time I graduated and turned 18, I was probably close to 300 lbs (I stopped weighing myself at 265). Before I had my son I was around 130. Once I moved out of my house, I stopped taking the shot and within the year, lost 100 lbs.... just from ending the shot!. That is where my yo-yoing started.

I was down to 216 a few years ago whan I found out I was pregnant with my twins. Since they have been born, I have dealt with cervical cancer and the resulting procedures and hysterectomy from that, a severe knee injury and resulting surgery from that, a near divorce.... and Im an emotional eater. SOOOO..... you can see where Im going with this.

Now, Im all healed up, marriage is back on track, gym membership is up and running, new diet (the 17 day diet from the Dr Phil SHow) is underway, I have finally admitted and vocalized my addiction to food and have surrounded myself with tools for support and now Im ready to conquer this. My goal weight is 140 but for now I just want to get under 200!!!

Thanks for the WELCOME Julie! And Welcome all other newbies!

I actually have 2 of the WATP dvd's, just haven't used them in a while. That might be just what I need to get me going again! It's soooo hot out here in ATL and my elliptical just doesn't interest me right now!

I might do it tonight!!! Thanks for the motivation!

Hello everyone!! I'm a 35 year old mother of 2 beautiful daughters. I have finally decided to take responsibility for my own health and get fit! I have always been the "bigger" girl and now I realize that if that doesn't change I will pay for it in the future. I love the support of each of these teams and the sparkpeople website, I just know that with a little motivation we can reach our goals! I look forward to reaching that 199 goal!!

Welcome, everyone! My name is Julie and I am one of the administrators here. (Carrot143 is the other.)

Please jump in on the other threads and get to know the group. We're all here to support each other! Let us know if there is anything we can do to help.

I personally have been enjoying doing videos with Leslie Sansone who does walk away the pounds. She has a team here at SP. I also did Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred but that was just too hard. I just came back from vacation where I gained a few pounds so I'm a little bummed but working hard to get back to where I started.

Hi! Natasha from Atlanta GA. Lived here all my life - I'm a Sweet GA Peach! LOL I will be 34 Aug 16th and am happily married without any children. I am a cat lover! I love dogs too as long as they are someone else's! I've struggled with weight gain since I was in my mid 20's. Office jobs/snack machines/late night eating became my worst enemy. I love fried foods, starchy foods and sweets. All of the bad stuff...

I'm new to this team but been on SP since first of Jan 2011. I love SP and the motivation! I started working out in January on my newly purchased elliptical, got burnt out after 4 months of nothing but ellip. (I had built up from 10 mins at level 1 to 40 mins at level 3.) Then I started walking 3-4 miles a day/5x a week then it got TOO HOT. I have taken several vacations over this summer and have bombed out in June/July. Hoping to make August or September the month that I leave 200-VIlle! Will be a challenge for me since I've probably gained a few pounds on my vacations. I was 207.5 last week...After a weekend of eating donuts and kyrstal's who knows! I'm on track this week and will see what the scale is reading this Friday.

Looking forward to Leaving 200-Ville!!

Hi all,

Just left the "Leaving 210-ville" team as I weighed in at 209.2 yesterday. (I snuck a peek this morning and was at 208.2, so I'm well on my way. :) If all goes according to plan, I'll be able to bid you all adieu before (or certainly by) Labor Day. In the meantime, though, I look forward to sharing support and encouragement on our journeys.

See you all in ONEderland! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Welcome Andrew,

My eating habits mimic yours and is one hellofa battle. I am 76 and retired so the free time is sometimes difficult when it comes to kitchen cruising. I am now on the verge of leaving this hotel for new digs. So hang in there.

Hi my name is Andrew and I live in Boston Ma. I have been an emotional eater pretty much my whole life. I had joined spark people about a year and a half ago. from March 2010-June 2010 I lost just around 40lbs and got down to 217 which was HUGE! Then in July I lost my job and was unemployed for about 6 months. I lost all my motivation and got right back up to 250. I have been solidly back on spark people for over a month now and really plan on making it stick this time. I have a huge problem with night time over eating. I do such a good job all day but once night time rolls around its like an eating marathon. I sometimes give into it but have been doing a really good job not letting myself get carried away. My goal is to be under 200lbs by the winter and go on a cruise in December! I hope everyone is well and I am happy to be here!

Hi,
I'm Vicki, 54, and over the past 30 years I've lost over 100 lbs, kept it off for over 16 years, then over the course of the last 14 years I've struggled to maintain, then to relose 100 lbs I gained over the last 6 years. Menopause played a big part in me gaining the weight plus a bad bike accident that made exercise next to impossible for months. The inactivity plus falling back into bad eating habits helped me to be 100 lbs heavier than I want to be. Itís been a huge struggle for me and Iíve yo-yoíd back and forth over what I felt was right for me. And Iíve felt so guilty because I felt I should be able to get the weight back off and keep it off. Iím actually only 4 lbs from my highest weight back in the 80ís, so Iíve come full circle.
I'm working towards relosing the weight and however long it takes, I won't give up. My ultimate goal is to get down to 142-145 lbs and then stay there.

Welcome DaisyJo and BeckyJen2011 - I hope you'll find your stay here motivating to make it SHORT! LOL...I've been here for awhile and working hard to leave by this fall. SP can help with the tools and let me know if you need anything while you're here in the "hotel".

Hi Everyone,
My name is Jen and I'm new to this team. I weighed in at 248 pounds in October and have been losing weight on my own since then. Today I weighted in at 207.6 lbs and decided to join sparkpeople.

My goal weight is 149 lbs so that I am actually considered healthy for once in my life. I haven't been that weight since I was 11 or 12 years old. so I am not sure if it is possible, but I want to get as healthy as I can.

I'm pretty broke right now, so that is helping me stay away from the fast food and soda. My first goal is to get below 200 lbs by the beginning of August.
