Success in 2010

I am 53 years young. I say this because I don't look or feel this old. I have struggled for many years with extra weight. I have been able to get a little weight off during the years but then I would put it back on. Every Jan 1 my new years resolution is to get slim. This year I decided that nothing was going to stop me from succeeding. 2010 will be the year I get fit and healthy. I weigh 180 I never thought it would get this high.

Anyway I would like to lose 35-40lbs. When I started in January I was 186 .As I get older this is a struggle and I admit I could use help and support. I have gone to W8W in the past and it seems to work for me as long as I don't lose the momentum. I hope to find the support here and once and for all shed the fat.

Happy New Year and congrats on taking the first step to reaching a healthier you! I'm glad you're getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

There's a SparkTeam of people doing Weight Watchers so you might want to check into it - as for 'only' losing 8 lbs - hey, it's better than the 10 lbs an average person gains so you could look at it as you're 18 lbs down from where you could have been! It's all relative and there's a whole community of people here who have been thru and are going thru everything affecting you!

In my experience, SparkPeople is like a emoticon in some ways - it's lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!

If you ever need any help using features of the site, there are tutorial videos under the HELP section that can show you how to use the features of the site. You can also find them on the START page and several other places on the site.

emoticon

If you haven't discovered The Spark book and/or the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check them out - the program is simple but extremely effective. There is a TON of information on this site - so much it might even seem overwhelming but fortunately we don't have to 'digest' everything at once! The FastBreak program is a good way to start.

emoticon

Another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I do - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!

Hi and Welcome! Congrats on last year's weight loss. SP can really help you achieve your weight, health, and fitness goals. Be determined, persistent, and consistent. Explore the site. Have you looked at SP's food tracker? Track or journal your food, drink your water, and move your body. I've never used WW, but have had good results with journaling my food and counting calories. I absolutely would not have gotten to goal weight without working out. Make time for workouts--you'll feel better in the long run! Best wishes!

Hi. Thanks for the comment on my blog. And yes it is healthy. I did a LOT of research on this before I decided to do it. I wanted to make a very educated decision and I feel that I am doing what is right for me. Try reading my Fasting!!! blog...it might help explain a few things. Good luck on your journey.
