That's wonderful news...keep moving forward...and note what determination and focus helped you to arrive at this point. When temptations come up -- and they will -- remember those steps. Great work!

I could have written your post. I have lost almost the same amount and am finally feeling like a success after countless failed attempts. I really attribute it to this site. Everyday getting a new e-mail (like the one I got that lead me to your post) is great motivation. I too am finally making a lifestyle change and I feel great.
Congrats to you and thank you for the post - what a great way to start the day!

Goal: to be fit and healthy by 40 (Sept 2011).

Well done on your weight loss. I am also trying to lose weight but its a long hard road.it has taken a year to get down from 16st 8lb and am now 14st 6lb. but every time I see the scale going down I get more motivation to carry on. so you just keep going and no matter what your age is it is never too late. I am 64 and losing weight so that I can have my op.good luck.

Congratulations, 10 lbs that is great, and you are right about the support and lifestyle change.

MOIRADEROCHE Posts: 2

I so agree about the need for support. I recommended one of my colleagues join SparkPeople, telling her that I have lost weigh with several diets over the years (sadly always put it back on), but have never been successful without a support mechanism. I know what I should do (could probably write my own diet book), but without support you get nowhere.
Well done on your weight loss!

Ten pounds is totally awesome! Especially because you are doing it the smart way. Those folks who lose 10 pounds a week generally don't keep it on, but I've found if you change your habits first, then lose the weight, it usually lasts longer!

We are very proud of you and I personally thank you for posting cause it inspires me to keep trying! emoticon

emoticon i feel great just walked for 30 minutes but today i had wonderful day....it started out when i checked my diabetes(which i was dreading i had only taken 1 tablet yesterday) to my BIG surprise i checked in at exactly 100 that made my day. than i ran errands and i was asked by several people that if i was on diet. i said yes "I AM EATING HEALTHY AND EXERCISING EVERYDAY" that made my day joined SPARK PEOPLE about 3 weeks ago(everyone was curious this is a third world country down here) i told them to check it out...it is wonderful!!!

i plan to continue w/this program until i reach my goal and than probably more just for maintance...but i suffer from hashimoto's disease emoticon and i have learned so much about the illness since i joined.

peace

I weighed myself at mom in law's yesterday - I've lost 10 lbs!

That's not an amazing amount in and of itself, as I joined SparkPeople and began this quest 6 weeks ago. But....I feel that I am making more changes than just taking the pounds off; the sensible eating and getting healthier is becoming a little more natural.

Like most of us here, I've lost weight before, here and there - and it comes back because I feel so deprived and unable to change habits.

Right now I feel as tho I am doing really well at making lifestyle changes and I think that's a huge part of the battle.

SparkPeople isn't just about "me me me"...it's about supporting one another. I want to thank everyone who takes a moment to lend support to each other, whether it's by responding with a comment or just reading and thinking about the health of others, as well as their own.
