Goodbye, SparkPeople!


Monday, November 16, 2009

I was rewriting my information and had a really nice piece written when it decided my goal weight had to be lower than my current and didn't save a word I wrote! So I guess I'll just post something here.

Since September I have been in Stage 4 and not been using SparkPeople anymore. I had lost 15 lbs and really liked how I looked. I decided to move my goal weight up and not worry about the nutrition tracker anymore. Now I simply listen to myself to know when to stop eating and simply try to walk as much as I can in my day. I have lost another 7 pounds since then. The other day I went to look at jeans, since my current ones are litterally falling off of me, and discovered that I was down not one but two sizes! So I bought two pairs of jeans, one pair being skinny! I'm going to put up an after picture soon, probably in the jeans.

SparkPeople has been a wonderful tool for my weightloss. Without it I know I would not look or feel this good! I want to thank everyone in this great community for being there. I am probably not going to be coming back, and wanted to thank everyone before leaving. Thank you!!

    This communitee has become like family to me. Even when I loose my weight, I will continue to still be here cause I keep learning more things about all kinds of subjects. I love that about this site. There is just too much info here to want to leave it. Besides, I really like the people, and I would really miss them.

    Good luck if you are venturing off SP. Congrats on your weight loss, it feels fantastic, doesn't it? Well, events in your life will happen and you will be distracted and focused on other things and before you know it, you can be 40 lbs overweight again. I speak from experience having lost weight 4 times in the last 25 years that unless you stay with it continually, it will eventually creep back on (and it will likely happen within 2 years, just like the stats say), this I know. This is the last time I plan to do this, but I said that last time too. I have less to lose each time now than the last time, because I have figured out some of what works and stick with it. I now need to keep those last 20 lbs off for good and using the Nutrition Tracker, whether on SP or not, is going to be the best way. If a few lbs creep up (only weighing every few days or once a week), then stepping up the cardio and cutting a few calories. I wish you the best of luck and enjoy your NEW you!

    Sorry you're not coming back. I lost my weight just a little over a year ago, and I really do attribute my continued low weight to visiting this site on an almost daily basis.

Besides it's fun!
