I have started jan of 2011. I lost 18 pounds. then in 2012 I quit losing. I have maintained and stayed within 2-3 pounds this whole year but can't seem to start losing again. I do watch what I eat and I try to walk every day at least 3 days a week i know i walk for sure but i can't seem to get past this platue!!!!!!!
Every day at lunch I walk for 30 minutes then I park the furthest parking spot at work and walk. I try to take the dog for a walk.

Welcome to Spark. You have taken an important step on your journey by joining! I've been a member a little over 3 years. I made fantastic progress and lost 100 pounds in the first year BUT I became careless about nutrition and exercise and have gained a lot of the pounds back! I became disgusted with myself and closed my Spark account, but soon realized I NEEDED to be here. I'm back using the nutrition and exercise trackers now - they are so important. The sense of community and the friendships I have made here keep me going! Explore the site, make your Sparkpage if you haven’t, join teams, and make friends. You will find this site an amazing place full of encouragement, inspiration, advice, and support. Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with. Good luck! Sheila
Take time to participate on all the groups you have joined - you will find lots of help and encouragement there.
Have you been tracking your food and exercise - if not consider doing this for a period of about 2 weeks or more if possible - you might be surprised with the calorie limit you are consuming - either not enough or to much.
