SparkPeople Reconnected Team Messageboard http://www.sparkpeople.com/assets/nav/nav_logo_v3.gif http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_individual.asp?gid=15451 Hi! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x15451x50272747 I'm new to this team but not to spark as have been on and off before and on for some time with my current user name. <BR> <BR> I'm not a chef, just someone who wants to cook better at home. <BR> <BR> Was browsing teams I might join and just love your name. Love being connected and communicating. <BR> <BR> I am a long time maintainer of a large (100+) weight loss, although I do not track on spark and use the site for support and resources. Part of maintaining IMO is having to relose pounds ... Sat, 6 Oct 2012 19:32:52 EST Hi, I like the name of this team... http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x15451x24823325 My name is Michelle and I am "reconnecting" with SP so this sounded like the perfect team! I recently lost 30lbs through a lower carb diet program and I want to maintain this lifestyle because it is actually working for me! My weight has been an issue for a long time-- right now, I am just trying to stay focused and encouraged-- and stay in the race. (For me, that means no more giving up!) <em>30</em> Sat, 18 Apr 2009 15:30:31 EST Hi I'm new to this group and new to Spark people http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x15451x23079407 I am Barb, I am working on lifestyle changes. I want to lose at least 50lbs. I want to learn how to keep it off maintaining a healthy lifestyle for the rest of my life. This is not a temporary change that I want to make- but a permanent one. <BR> <BR> I believe that I’m an emotional eater, and so I stuff my unresolved feelings rather than deal with them. Or that I feel that I have been deprived and I feed my unmet needs with food rather than deal with my feelings about my needs being unmet ... Fri, 20 Feb 2009 01:42:31 EST Eating a Rainbow! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x15451x17558471 Hey guys! On one of my other teams, we have a challenge to eat a rainbow of vegetables and fruit, in order to get a fuller range of nutrients into our diets. Each day, come to the thread and post what colors you've eaten. I thought I'd start a thread here for the same thing, and see what happens. <BR> <BR> An example would be: <BR> Red: Tomatoes, strawberries <BR> Orange: Carrots, oranges <BR> Yellow/Lt. Green: Iceberg lettuce, bananas <BR> Dark Green: Green beans, romaine lettuce <BR> Bl... Sun, 10 Aug 2008 21:10:13 EST Hello! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x15451x14204467 At this point, I haven't done a whole lot to train, other than sign up here and go for a walk with Dena. I'm gonna have to revisit the "doom training" we put together last year when we were attempting to gear up to go this year. <BR> <BR> Anyway, I hope you guys are having a wonderful day and I look forward to getting to know each of you!

I lost 45-50# last year(depending on where I am on a given day within my 'normal' range of 123-128) I did it aggressively, but the healthy way, through serious and persistent exercise and healthy eating/portion control, and have maintained since fall. But I've been zapped with a series of pretty serious life chall... Thu, 14 Feb 2008 16:15:12 EST
