I've been trying to lose weight for 3 years, almost four now. I have gone up and down and struggled for one reason or another. I've been through some traumatic times in recent years, and am hoping to use exercise as a way to release and move forward.

I am now focusing on regular exercise and a healthy diet, with things I enjoy in moderation, making small changes one by one in my life. It's slow, but better.

I'm looking for spark friends to help motivate each other and keep me coming back to this website, which will keep me thinking about my goals. Please feel free to add me if you think we have things in common!

    yeah I did! I've joined in the past, but fell off the wagon. I'm determined to stick with my lifestyle for the long haul. that sucks about the physical therapy... My knees are messed up from running - it isn't super serious but it's enough to warrant painkillers sometimes, so I've decided to get back into my old hobby of swimming! :) how long have you been with sparkpeople??

    Hey! So I was bumming around the forums and saw you were kind of looking for a weight loss buddy? If you're interested, I'm game for trying to keep one another accountable or something. I'm at 160 pounds too! :-) Let me know... and it looks like you just ran a 5K... how'd it go???

    Welcome to the Kombucha Kurious & Fond of Fermenting Sparkteam!

    Funny name, but we're all pretty serious about it! Most of the team are fermenting foodstuffs to a lesser or greater degree, so there's always someone that can help or give advice from their own experience.

    Drop in, have a look around and maybe tell us a little about yourself and what you do, or aspire to do!
