31 pounds since January 8th, 2012. Using the nutrition tracker every day has been the biggest help on this journey. I love the SP website for all the articles, messge boards and recipes. I wouldn't be sucessful without it.

Congrats on your weight loss!! I am down 15 pounds since January 1st. I had already been a member here, but didn't really start using SP to log my food & fitness until March. It is a great tool to use to aid in weight loss and maintaining a healthy lifestyle!

I've lost 25 lbs. since I started trying to lose weight in January (I know, how cliche). I have 10 or 15 lbs. left to go!

10 kilos as of yesterday. That is around 22 pounds. I started losing weight at the beginning of the year, so it has taken me 6 months. I'm over halfway and going strong!

This time -- 110 lbs. Hopefully this is the last major weight loss I'll have to do.

But like many of you, I've lost many more that I eventually regained! I'm hoping I learned enough from those experiences that I won't make the same mistakes, but time will tell...

In my lifetime? Dozens and dozens and dozens.

This time 'round - 17! :)

6/24/12 8:45 P

I started losing about a year ago. Was at 326 and hit 218. I have some normal fluctuation of about 2-3 punds. So total overall is 108 lbs.

Mostly i did very reduced calorie, cut out processed foods as much as possible, severely reduced my sodium and gave up sodas. I still need to take off a good 20 pounds but can not believe how much better I feel.

Eat less, move more. The most simple principal but one that really works.

Thanks to you all. It is very hard. I lost my mother last year and I just fell apart. Some meds make you gain weight, and then depression makes you keep it on. My triglycerides were 571 and I have to get that down. I don't eat alot of sugar, because I am a diabetic, and take 2000mgs a day of Metformin which is suppose to help you lost weight. Not sure why it didn't, stay in the bathroom more than anywhere else in the house. Last October, I quit smoking, and didn't smoke for 6 months, but in the last month, I have been smoking a little on a daily basis, so now, I have to start the patches again, just to stop smoking. Seems harder now than in October. I just stopped then, and now, if I have a patch on, I take it off so I can smoke. But I am gonna win both of the battles. Get my weight to where I want it and stop smoking... Good luck to you all, and keep inspiring one another. This site has been a tremendous help to me. Have a blessed day.

Great job to all of you! This is a great site with plenty of interesting tips and recipes as well as inspirational people to help you along the way.

I am down 27 pounds and still going! :)

losing 5 lbs in 3 weeks is better than progress Swallis.. that reason to celebrate. Thats 85 lbs a year at that rate. Even if you slow to 3 lbs a month thats less than 2 years, and you are doing way better than that.

I have lost 142 in 3 years .. 156 weeks... so obviously less than a lb a week. Its not about losing 3 lbs in 1 week, or 1/2 a lb in 1 week. The person who succeeds, is the person that never gives up.. Keep losing 4-5 lbs a month, and your Christmas present to yourself will be GW.

Get rid of only, and cant.. scream I lost 5 freaking lbs! Next month it'll be 10. Like bricks in a house, you can stack success upon success. Concentrate on building the house, and not the brick you have in your hand ( 5 lbs )..

I've only lost 5 lbs so far but I just started Spark in April. I had been trying to lose weight for the 6-9 months prior and was lucky to lose a pound then gain it back. Keeping track of my food, drinking my water and tracking my fitness has helped me be accountable for myself. Is like to see more come off, but progress is progress and I'm so glad I see it and feel it. I can now walk without feeling like I'm dying! So glad I read about SP in a magazine and decided to check it out. My ongoing goal is PROGRESS.

139 lbs as of today, and the last 44 with SP.

ONELOVED15 - Just do the best you can, and it will be good enough. Even now I look and say " I still need to lose 50 lbs ". You need to be happy at 166, or you won't be happy in a size 4. It isn't a competition. Maybe you are just being funny, but I worry when people talk about their " journey" , or themselves in less than glowing terms. There are plenty of people to say bad things about you, always acknowledge your own accomplishments.

not enough! I just got really serious so it's my fault. my weight is bouncing back and forth and seems to be going no where but I feel better everyday now since I have changed the way that I am eating. I know that it will start to come off if I continue to regulate what I eat and continue to work out. So far I have gone from 170 a couple of weeks ago to 166 today, it doesn't seem like a lot to me but I will take it! I will get back into my size 4 everything this year!

Great job TWARNERPOWELL! Keep up the good work! Watching the scale drop is definitely a great motivator. Tracking your food and making mindful choices should help with other aspects of your health as well. Since I really started paying attention to what I put in my mouth, my cholesterol dropped to 178...It has been between 199-210 for the past 10 years.. Just hang in there and watch the positive changes happen! Good luck!

I just wanna say that I am happy that I found this site. I had gotten way over weight, and weighed 189 three weeks ago on my scale at home, and this morning, I weighed 180. I am so proud. I suffer from high cholesterol and type 2 diabetes, and it has been a struggle for me because I also have panic and anxiety disorders along with depression and fibromyaligia, but I have been trying really hard to stay with in my tracker, and I have been doing it. Thanks again for this site and all the people here that are here to help.
