Hi. I’m Marge and been with Spark people off and on for 7 years. I realized I need to lose weight and stay fit to help my high blood pressure, Type2 diabetes and just be healthy in general. I

I am married 49 years, have 4 kids and 7 grandkids. I am retired.

I enjoy walking but often find it hard with bad knees.

Please stop by my spark page and get to know me better. I look forward to getting to know you as well.

Hi

I'm Darcy. I live in Kansas and am originally from Oklahoma. My family of origin is in Oklahoma and my brother and his wife just moved to Texas.

I am a social worker and addictions counselor. I am not a typical version of either one, so the stereotypes don't really fit.

I've been overweight/obese most of my life. I'm working for health and fitness at this point. My thinking is in a better place today to make this happen but I'm still working on those coping skills for emotional eating.

I have two daughters ages 21 and 19. I have a son who will turn 2 next week.

I prefer walking and free weights. I've never been a runner and don't really plan to be at this point. I do bodyweight exercises or use a kettlebell because it doesn't require additional equipment.

I joined SP in 2008 and have been back and forth since. Still trying to develop habits that support a healthy lifestyle. Will continue to work on that.

Thank you for reading.

Darcy

Hello. I am definitely not new. I have been with SparkPeople since 2016. My journey has been slow but rewarding.

I have lived in Las Vegas for 19 years and am formerly from New Jersey. I am 65 this year and have been retired since I was 62. Although, I did return to work last year because I got bored with my own company. All of my family is back east but I get visitors at least 3-4 times a year.

I work part time as a cashier at Goodwill. I have to resist the temptation to buy since I am trying to simplify my life and get more “stuff” out of my house. I find that, as I get older, the needs beat the wants every time. However, they have so many great buys that I have to constantly remind myself.

I enjoy my life and love the support and encouragement I receive fro the Spark community. Here and on Facebook.

See you on the boards.

Being positive is a choice. My Mantra: “Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day." Each morning seek the positive and you will have a good day. Always remember, “Your only competition is YOU.”

Hello fellow spark-people! I am an active couch potato; a habit that I am going to break soon! At least that is my goal. Active Couch Potato you ask .. yes. I am a gym go-er; I do the treadmill and some strength training. I also am on a bowling team (that bowls once a week). I also work a retail job that keeps me on my feet. BUT .. once I am home and the chores are done, I tend to SIT!
I have hobbies that include sewing and cross stitch but really need to get into more active roles..that is a goal for this spring/summer!

Hello all just to reintroduce myself my name is Tema and I used to be a stay at home mom but decided to go back to work after 18 years of being home and it's the best feeling and best thing I could've done I love working for the company I now work for I deal with retirement plans and college savings plans as well as health plans so changes are if you're with an employer and they offer these types of plans I'm probably dealing with them in some way

Today is my first day really back on sparks in a long time and I'm super excited about that

I'm making it one day at a time
TENACITY is the quality displayed by someone who just won't quit -- who keeps trying until they reach their goal. Anything really worth doing takes persistence, perseverance, and stubborn determination! I AM a Tenacious Jungle Tiger and these are my survival skills!!

The key is to keep company with those who uplift you, whose presence calls forth my best....

HI, my name is Joyce, I have been a part of sparks since 2013, but became active in 2014.

I am married to my soul mate, we will be celebrating our 54th wedding anniversary Feb 28.
We have 3 adult children, 10 grandchildren and 4 and one on the way great grandchildren

I am active in Red Hats, church activities and lead an ecumenical Bible study. I like to play computer games, read, do brain puzzles and go out with friends. I am a very social person.

I like walking best but getting better about doing S/T. We have a dog named Kayla, (she is a King Charles spaniel)and she is 2 yrs old, we have an African gray, Robbie who is 16 yrs old and we have had him 13 years, he is a plucker and has metabolic bone deficiency and arthritis, vet thinks he didn't get the right nourishment when he was young, we were his 3rd owners and he was 3 when be bought him from the pet store, but he is lovable and is quite the talker. We also have a Caique, name Candy, she is 7 years old and is a cutie but has her moments. Both birds are in the computer room with me and when I am on the phone they are like children and start talking especially Candy.

Happy to be a part of the team.

Faith is our power to know there can be no true unhappiness or disappointment when the Divine is at work.

I enjoy my job. It fills my heart when I can help someone with what they need. The challenge is to stay positive when I get no donations and the customers are cranky because
i don't have everything they want.

Hi.
I'm a mom to 6, gramma to 6. Watch the youngest everyday, and the next 2 up when they don't have school.
My MIL has been diagnosed with Alzheimers and spends evenings with us.
I work part time running a clothing bank for low income and homeless in my neighborhood.
Sweetie and I have been together 23.5 years.
When I have time I like to read, crochet and tat.
My favorite exercise is walking. when I can fit it in it gives me a moment to myself.

Than-you for the invite.

I am from Pennsylvania and have been married to the love of my life for 33 years. I have three daughters and am an avid horse nut and hope to get back into riding my horses soon once I get some weight off and have more flexibility.

Hello. Reading through your response to the question, "What do you do," made me realize we have several similar threads running through our lives. 1. My Dad was career Air Force 2. I'm two years out from a full anterior hip replacement 3. TAI CHI: My surgeon told me the only things I couldn't do was run (unless someone was chasing me or the house was on fire!) and Yoga. So I take a weekly class Tai Chi class at our local senior center and it has helped my balance immensely. I hope you're recovering well from your hip surgery. Mine gave me my life back.

As for as the question: What do you do? I'm retired LEO

Hello my name is Sheryl and I am from Maryland. I currently work in the public school system. I am trying to figure out if I can retire soon as my husband will be retiring in about a month, We have both had health issues this past year and would like to spend some time together while we can. I started this new journey on SP so I can get a handle on my health and my weight is a big part of my issue. I have been noticing little changes in the short time I have been doing this.

Hello I am Suzenna 48 years old from Denver, Colorado, I am single, no children or pets. I am a 21 year breast cancer survivor I got peripheral neuropathy that I received from the chemo. I had been always told that that there was nothing that could be done for nerve damage. They can help the pain so I am on a Gabapentin, Oxycodone combination which leaves the pain bearable. I had been pretty close to bedridden for 14 years I could barely make it around my house because it hurt to much go even do that much. I have been on my pain management medication for 7 years now. I have worked my way up to walking up to 6.5 miles on my good days 4.5 miles on my bad days. I am also diabetic and have developed Chronic Kidney Disease as a result of the Diabetes, I have intracranial hypertension that gives me headaches worse than migraines. I have days that it takes me 5-6 hours to get of the groggy period of waking up.
I am not able to work a job. I have started to sell Mary Kay to see if I can get it to work around my health problems.

I'm a homemaker. Fulltime now, but prior to this I was a cosmetologist. I still do hair for family and a few friends. I make house calls if they have a reason they can't travel to see me.

I am now retired. Prior to retirement, I worked for the state of New Jersey, DHS, as an executive administrative assistant for the chief of staff. After 30 years, I left state service and moved to Las Vegas in 2000 and worked as the office manager for a jewelry store that specialized in Black Coral jewelry. They closed in 2013. After that I worked various part-time positions as an office assistant before retiring in January 2016.

Being positive is a choice. My Mantra: “Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day." Each morning seek the positive and you will have a good day. Always remember, “Your only competition is YOU.”

I work in Special Education compliance for a local school district. Basically I keep track of district data, review student documents for accuracy and that they meet state requirements, request money from the state, etc. Sounds really boring in black and white. LOL



In my real life, I am a wife and mom. I enjoy writing, crafting, and reading. I spend an inordinate amount of time at the grocery store. I think it is an organization issue. I am one of those odd people that doesn't watch t.v. I over think everything. It is a special gift.

Hello everyone, I am 21 and a communications assistant for the hearing impaired I help them be able to communicate on the telephone. They rely on me to repeat everything the person they are on the phone with into text that they can read on a screen specifically for the phone. I'm thinking about becoming a massage therapist though.

Hello all. My name is Lisa and I currently work for Child Support, here in California. I have been working here almost a year. Prior to that I was a 9-1-1 operator and Police dispatcher for 20 years. I have 3 grown children, 1 awesome grand daughter and a grand baby on the way, due in March 2017! I have a second job as a horse-drawn carriage driver and own a team of horses.

I am so looking forward to being on here and being able to support others that are on this journey, as well as be supported.

Wishing you all a great week!!

I live in Canada, but was born and educated in USA. I'll have to stick with InSh8p except through private messages.
I was the young person never chosen or last chosen for games, so I gravitated to dance, walking, and "creative dramatics" and music performance.
I saw SparkPeople mentioned in media ten years ago. I drifted away when screen refresh times were painfully slow, but I've been back for several years now.
I am especially interested in the "stay fit" part of the team name. One way that I do that for myself is by encouraging others.

Leader, SparkTeam - Nova Scotians!
Leader, SparkTeam - Violinists
Co-Leader, SparkTeam - Sista, I've got your back
Then sings my soul.

Hi! My name is Rachelle....I'm married to my best friend Eric for 6 years and been together for ten years. No kids (we got together later in life.). To be honest, I never felt the desire to have kids based on my life experiences. But we are happy happy. He feels the same for different reasons...

I have been the treatment director for a private foster care/OPMH agency for a little more than two years. I am a licensed social worker and an independently licensed clinical counselor. I have worked with families and kids overall for 20 years (yikes!!). Very busy and at times very stressful :(

I sincerely want to lose weight - I am much more fit over the last year thanks to kick butt workouts at the gym! But really needing to get back to going consistently, work has not helped with this. My supervisor tells me that I need to get it back - I only need to leave a little early twice per week for the training sessions. I will get it back! I've gained some weight back, but my clothes still generally fit....but not where I want be.

Looking forward to sharing this journey with all of you :) Good to be back!

We are not defined by the choices we have made in the past. We are defined by the choices we make and the impact we have on the lives of others!

My name is Leslie, I'm 45, 3 kids, Hunter 18, Tori 15 (gotta love having a teenage girl) and Dustin 14 and a wonderful husband.

We are a military family, my husband retired almost 10 years ago from the Army after two deployments to Iraq, he is now a mechanic with a rental equipment company.

I have worked at our local paper for over 18 years (this time around, was here 4 years in my early 20s but left for 2 years). Hard to explain what I do if you are not familiar with the industry aside from reporters and sales. I'm a behind the scenes kind of person, I worked in graphic design for some time, I've worked in sales, done receptionist kind of stuff, among many other things. When you have been with one company for so many years, your job tends to change quite a bit over the years, as I'm sure most of you may know.

I grew up in Upstate New York, but moved to Georgia when I was 15 and have been here ever since. I have a very content kind of life, happy with where I am at this stage of my life with the exception of this weight thing that I have been fighting since puberty.

Oh, a big thing in my life that I am very proud of, I quit smoking 6 years ago after smoking for about 24 years at over a pack a day. Best thing I think I ever did for myself and my family.

That about sums it up for me.

Hi ya, I'm Stacy.

For the past couple of years I have been a Happy Housewife. emoticon

My past work mostly includes being a Server at Cracker Barrel and other Restaurants since age 16. (I'm 43)

SOON: I will be working from home!

I'm currently perfecting recipes for the . com website I am building...(coming soon) emoticon

I will be an Official Blogger. My website, recipes, & ramblings will fall under all my crazy family stories; traditional family recipes and my slim it down version of many of those as well as my new creations.

I have been married for (as of June 18th) 23 years and we have been a couple for 25!

Our son is 22 and still at home. He is perfecting his skill as a machinist and gaining a lot of experience to set him up Full-Time with this special trade and skill. He has earned awards and special certificates already. emoticon

From a very young age it was very important to us as parents to mold him with the value of a dollar/morals and being prepared for this world.

We are so PROUD and Pleased that it worked! hahahaha! emoticon

He is not leaving home until his savings account hits a certain number and he has a few important essentials already taken care of. A more dependable car and some other important things. He wants to make sure once he leaves the nest, he will have a nice cushion in the bank to start out his life on his own with less stress and anxiety.

We are all for that and proud we have been able to mold that wisdom in him.

We also have a pet-daughter ZuZu. She is now 10. (her pic is on my sparkpage)

Love her so much! She has brought pure joy to our lives!
