No More Excuses

I put on 60 pounds between 2007 and 2010. I guess I could blame it on working the swing shift but, nobody else around me put on that amount of weight. My goal is to get back to a weight where I feel comfortable and maybe even to what the government says is a healthy weight for me.

It's been about three years since I wrote the paragraph above and I'm still at it. After dropping from a breath-taking all-time high of 198 lbs (on a 5' 1" frame mind you) I fell into a cycle of ...

It's been about three years since I wrote the paragraph above and I'm still at it. After dropping from a breath-taking all-time high of 198 lbs (on a 5' 1" frame mind you) I fell into a cycle of spending the first six months of the year losing 20lbs and the next six months of the year gaining 20lbs. Topping up at 165-170lbs and bottoming out at 145-150lbs. I'm comfy at 150lbs but it's still SEVENTEEN pounds more than the government thinks I should weigh. I don't feel good at 170lbs :-(

This year I'm going to try to get below 145 and STAY THERE. Wish me luck.

Welcome to Spark. We all fall off the wagon at times. This is my second time on spark. I am trying to lose 20 lbs that I put on over 3 years ago. So good luck with your journey! emoticon

emoticon Greetings and emoticon

I'm glad you're getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

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!

emoticon

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!
