My Progress

Thursday, February 21, 2008


well its been about a month here and have lost some weight.. and feel good about it.. i am not emtional eating which i used to all the time if i didnt see things happening fast.. now i know will take awhile.. but i eat right .. eat less.. excerise a lot.. and drink my water.. even found a walking buddy so all and all i am doing good!! I think its more of a postive attitude i have..that i will get to my goal no matter what.. this is a journey and i am learning all the time! The Best thing is my walking buddy gave me *the Secert * book and i am reading that and it is a wonderful book to see your goals and visializing them and they will happen!! so thank all of you who have helped me along the way.. Polly, Jane, Sarah and so many others who just keep me going..! hope you all get to your goals..! dont give up!

    Thanks for your encouraging words and congratulations on your success. I too seem to get stuck when the results aren't happening as quickly as I would like. For you to push through that difficult time and not give up is an inspiration to me. Have a great weekend.

    You are off to a good start....I have the book the Secret also got the DVD, really good reading, I occasionally put the dvd on when I feel I need it listen to it again. It is a lot to take in, but all very well worth while, now I just need to put it all in practice.

I am getting there!

Thursday, February 07, 2008


Well this is about 3 weeks since i have started here, sometimes i do get frustrated when i look at scale and dont see a lot lost.. i am trying and doing all with excerise and eating less and more healthy, not always easy but i am doing it!! and husband is on this too which so helps..but as far as site i dont feel like i am doing enough, not as far as reading and all but as far as teams and giving support or talking about me and my problems. I have a hard time being online a lot but i see so many giving support and doing so well and i wonder how do they have time to be online posting and doing all the things you need to do in a day and excerise too! So i have no buddy online or off just husband . and he isnt here all day. so i guess i am just feeling sorry for myself and a little emotional , but i will get thru it and keep going and will make it.. !

    Hi Geri, You have lost over 18 pounds...That is absolutely awesome! I have only lost 1 1/2 pounds in the same time frame. You are doing great. A friend of mine used to say, "Don't quit 5 minutes before the miracle happens!" Keep going girl, It took a long time to put all our weight on, it will take some time to take it off too. I deceided to have a goal of 5 pounds a month. That is a very low amount to lose but it is a healthy and permanent weight loss if you do it right. If I had 18 pounds off like you do, I would be so happy that I would be jumping up and down! I would be like Air Jordan...Ha ha..you could call me Air Cherie! Anyway, try to cheer up girl friend, you are really doing a good job. Some weeks will be a lot slower than others but the important thing is to just keep going. Oh, don't compare yourself to your hubby...men can safely lose up to 4 pounds a day because of their heavier bone structure and higher metabolism, so we females can not comepare ourselves to that! Most of us are really lucky if we can lose 4 pounds a week because our metabolism is so much slower! They really are the brawn! I hope we are the beauties...but I know I am not at this weight! Hugs to you, I hope your day is better. Cherie

    Hello- I hope all is well with you today. It does seem so frustrating when the scale does not move after all the effort you put in to eat healthy & exercise. Believe me, I have been there. My old LA Weight Loss counselor told me I was not eating 100% of the diet plan. I was sabotaging myself diet everyday by eating a single 200-300 calorie item not on my plan. Let me tell you, I struggle with that same habit even today. Sorry for rattling on. Anyway, keep up the struggle & you will progress soon.

    Keep on going! Post anytime you can or you need to ask a question, concern, boast, or to vent. We are all here for one another. I also did not lose any for a while, but I thought if I ate under the amounts & walked that was given on the Nutrition Tracker page I would lose more & faster. I did not lose any. I kept walking and increased my eating trying to keep to the lower end of the guidelines, but within the numbers, and I started losing. It is a strange concept, but for me I had to eat more to lose weight. Different things work for different people. Just don't give up. I now know from reading on the site that muscle weighs more than fat and sometimes you may lose inch (or part of an inch) which do not show any loss on the scale. But you are moving forward that is what is important. I feel like a different person than I did at the beginning of last month (really for years). I have so much energy and my outlook has improved so much that I believe my effort has not been in vain.

    I'm sorry you're feeling a bit down! It is hard to get everything done in a day and post and exercise! Personally for me there is little else I can do while feeding the baby (still breastfeeding) so I post during my time doing that... and speed clean and stuff while he naps. I'm also demanding time in the evening when my hubby is home to get other stuff done!

You aren't alone, you can do it! Have you signed up for an accountilbilty buddy on FWC forum? It can be really helpful to have someone to talk to- I know my buddy and myself IM each other during the day whenever we sit down.

I hope your day goes well and you start feeling better!

Today is the day!

Sunday, January 13, 2008


I just joined this site yesterday and found so much info and groups its hard to comprend it all, but i am confident this is exactly what i need to lose weight. I find i get bored and so i eat. i know that is one of my problems, another is excepting myself as i am.. loving my self and being realistic that i might never be a skinny woman and do i want to?? not sure. I think we all need to realize why we are over weight. How did we get like this?? for me it was being sexually abused when i was young and so gained weight so wouldnt get attention from men.. so now have to deal with that and lose the weight for me.. to feel better about me!! today has been a good day .. didnt eat a lot.. excerized and feel so good.. this is the day to start a new life..!!!

    It is very overwhelming!! I joined awhile ago but just now am getting my feet wet. People have been so supportive, even when I don't say a lot. I joined a few teams, but don't find that the best for me, I just end up lurking and don't participate! You have to find your own spot. I have yet to find it. My daughter in law has been great support for me, she has lost 40 pounds since joining SparkPeople. Me?? well I lost 20 pounds and have kept that off for several years, but have lost only 2 since joining SP. The main thing for me is all the information to be gleaned, and I am going to just keep reading until it sinks in!
Welcome to SparkPeople, and the best to you!!

    Sonia's right. Dive into all that SP has to offer and you'll find support everywhere. I found so many people with common interests and goals by clicking on to other peoples friends. The success stories and following other SP member's progress is amazingly motivating for me.

I'm so sorry that you had such a terrible thing happen to you when you were a girl. I had the same experience but came to realize that I continued to give that person power over me by living my life around that experience. It's incredibly empowering to TAKE your life back and to finally make it what you envisioned it to be all along. Success is the best revenge isn't it? And the pride that you feel when you meet one goal at a time is amazing.

I surely hope that you can find that in yourself. We're here whenever you need to vent or when you struggle. Don't starve yourself! Don't beat yourself up if you falter from your plan. Pick up where you left off and keep going.

You CAN do this for yourself. It's about time! You deserve it! Just imagine the control over your life that you have finally obtained. Good luck and please keep me informed about your progress. I'm anxious to here how well you'll adjust to your new happy life.

Keep the faith and determination and you'll do great!
Nancy

    If you find and join SparkTeams that fit your interests and needs, you will find buddies that have things in common with you (best place to talk to friends you have never met, and get all the support and motivation you will need). SparkPeople really works, but the key is you and consistency. Stay active on the forum and post frequently. Track your food, drink at least 8 glasses of water a day and add exercise to your day. Take baby steps, and before you know it those baby steps become giant leaps. SparkPeople is free, but the rewards are priceless.
