Feeling Good

Hi, I gained weight while on medication, I'm still on the meds but the Doc says there isn't any reason I can't lose what I've gained. Easy for him to say.

Fitness Minutes: 9,304

My Goals:
My goal is to get rid of this excess weight and improve my body image.

My Program:
I exercise five days a week at a gym. My favorite cardo class is spinning. I also use the weight machines. Still this weight stays. I guess it's true the only way to lose weight is through exercise AND diet. I love exercising, but have problems with dieting.

Personal Information:
I'm 62, retired and enjoying life. I live in a suburg of Phila. PA
The picture is of my buddy. He likes to go camping with me. He also makes sure I'm safe.

Welcome to SparkPeople! emoticon

Start with your Start Page! Here is a video to help you unlock the power of Your Start Page:

Here's the video for the Nutrition Tracker - the best tool online!

I was 54 when I joined SparkPeople and 56 when I came back and started my Spark Program, starting with Stage One. This is a one day at a time program, but if you do the SparkPeople Program Steps, it really does work. I am terribly average, it's the SP program that is extraordinary.

I found logging my foods in the Nutrition Tracker helped me to lose 90 lbs in 16 months! I started at 210 and went to 120. I am 5'1.5" short, lol.

I hung clothing that was too small on my closet door and every time I would get discouraged I would try them on. Week by week they started fitting! That kept me motivated.

Welcome aboard, we really are all in the same boat! Sometimes we can sail right along but sometimes we have to be rowing like crazy!

You can make it happen! SparkPeople really does work!

I spent most of my 59 years in Obesityville - that is one town I never want to visit ever again!
Slim City is way more fun!!

Welcome Back!

I smiled when I read your post because I have been there! Way too many eyes looking at me and the comments, not always so kind. So, I kept SP to myself until people began to notice. For me, what they noticed first was the smaller things - looser clothing and one less chin. So, I began to let people in on SP. Then comes the inevitable question, "how much have you lost?" In my case, since I lost weight prior to SP, my SP weight loss is not impressive to most.

What keeps me going is the skills and support of SP. I am now part of a community that will support and encourage me. I joined a number of teams. My team mates have made a difference when I stumbled. They also celebrated my triumphs. I do not feel judged.

What keeps me motivated, is the challenges. I currently doing the 5k Your Challenge.

Since you are returning, I am sure you know, about the teams, challenges and other aspects of SP, but just a friendly reminder...

If you have questions about any aspect of the website or the program, post a message in one of our Forums. For example, if you have a question about nutrition, post a message in the Diet and Nutrition Forum. Or a question about exercise, post in the Fitness Forum and so forth.

Feel free to drop by my Spark Page and say hi. I would love it!

The Best,

Hi! Thought I would check in and see how you are doing. I am continuing to lose slowly, but I'm happy with that because I know that I didn't gain all the weight in a day and it sure isn't going to come off in a day. I've been a yo-yo dieter in the past and I am determined to keep it off this time once I lose it.

You can succeed. You already have the exercise part down good. Now with the food part, make small changes one at a time. They will add up to success.

Have a good day!
