Oh wow, blast from the past thread! I was one of the original responders, back on March 17, 2013, all happy about my 24# loss. Well... it's closer to 80# now :)

And I STILL feel GREAT! :D

Since joining Sparkpeople? Not more than a few pounds.
But I am maintaining an 80 lb weight loss from my highest non-pregnant weight. I have been at, or within a few pounds over or under my goal of 120 for over 7 years now.

I've just started tracking again, and I recently added some exercise back in, so I had a little beginners boost in the past week. I'm about 5 pounds lighter that I was last week, but that's partly from staying hydrated and clearing out my system, along with my body being startled out of hibernation.

I joined Spark People on Jan 12 and as of today I have lost 15 pounds for an overall total of 50 pounds lost with 30 more to go. I wish I had found Spark earlier as tracking my nutrition and exercise has really helped me zero in on what I need to focus on to get to my goal and keep me there. I am determined to maintain my weight loss and to improve my overall health and fitness. The tracking has been invaluable and is keeping me accountable.

Total from my highest weight in '83, 172 lb. - I weighed at least 335 lb. at that time.

On SparkPeople, 63.4. I am now within my goal of 160 Lb. May not get that last 2 lb, but that would be OK with me.

Since I "really" started Spark, I've lost 26 pounds with another 75ish to go. At the moment, I've hit a plateau and haven't lost anything for a few weeks even though I've been working out solid every day. Hopefully that turns soon.

3/18/13 10:21 A

10 solid pounds since Early December, 10-12 more to go!

55 lbs. The best part of this website is the small goals you set for yourself that snowball into huge lifestyle changes. Last summer, I couldn't cook to save my life... now I'm a regular gourmet chef in the kitchen and cook all mine and my families dinners from scratch (including my kid's snacks; crackers, granola bars etc. no more packaged snacks), I spent most of my free time on the computer during the day, now I can't sit still and am far more productive. I only come on the computer to do my mornin' Sparkin' and periodically to check recipes, meal plans and to use fitness videos. I workout nearly every day now. I am getting super muscular, brought my RHR down from 70-80 bpm to 45 bpm, my blood pressure into the range of kids and professional athletes. Before I would sit whenever I could, I was tired all the time, slept a lot... now I stand and pace about always looking for more things to do. I guess what I'm trying to say is Spark's has changed my entire lifestyle.

Tips: Just keep challenging yourself and setting new mini goals for your diet, fitness, health and life and in a year time, you'll look back and will be absolutely amazed by how much self-improvement you've made.

Thank you ladies, that was wonderful advice! I too love the trackers, for the simple fact that I'm happy to put in a good meal and exercise. In the same sense, disappointed in myself when I don't do so good, I find that if I plan my meals and exercise for the day, I really follow through rather than just tracking, you know?

Down 24# since Jan 5th - (245 to 221).

And I am feeling GREAT.

I use the Nutrition Tracker and track EVERYTHING - which has been of such immense benefit, in getting a handle on both portion control and "nutritional value" (really helps me keep an eye on my protein, which seems to be chronically low when left to my own devices).

I enjoy reading blogs and official Spark articles, and chilling out on the forums. I did join a couple of Teams but find that I prefer the general (and busier) forums.

Hi Alyssa,
I have lost 28# in 5 months.
I love the food tracker and all the health articles. The communities I'm involved in have taught me a lot about my personal health issues.
This is a great site. It looks like you have a great start by starting your own thread. Good luck.
Sincerely, Julia
