Hi and welcome to the team! Congratulations on reaching your goal and wanting to leave a 3 lb cushion or range. I think you will like this supportive team. I bought the Spark Solution book and I am on my first week. I have to adapt the recipes for me. It is a lot of food. I am exercising more than the book. Best wishes on the journey with us.

Hi! I am new to the team although I have been following for a couple months now as I approached my goal. Seems to be a very active team and i love that. It has been a terrific journey and I continue to learn so much about myself as I continue on my path to health. I am at my maintenance weight that I would like to maintain with a 3 lb cushion. Looking forward to taking my journey to the next level with new recipes and ideas for active fun for the whole family. Best wishes to everyone on this journey with me. emoticon

I am a seventy-five year old wife, mother, and grandmother. I had become quite sedentary due to osteoarthritis in my knees and spending my days homeschooling a granddaughter. One of my daughters introduced me to SparkPeople one year ago. I read Indygirl 's story, found some Coach Nicole exercises to do from a chair, and was hooked. Almost one year later I have been at goal for two weeks, having lost 55 pounds, can walk two to three miles and am so thrilled with this website and all the help offered. I have plans to keep Sparking and tracking food and exercise.

Hi and welcome to the team! Best wishes on your journey. This is a great team to help you get back on track. I also belonged to weight watchers and was a life time member. I would go every Saturday morning with my Mom. My Mom is sick and I am her care giver. I could not attend the meetings but lucky found Spark people. Linda from bean town emoticon emoticon emoticon

This is a great place for positive encouragement and real-life support. We're all dedicated to staying where we are, so there's definitely a lot to be learned from the lessons of others who are doing it. Please let us know if you need anything in particular and don't be afraid to start up a new discussion thread if you have a question that you'd like to put out to the team.

This team could be "just what the doctor ordered." I lost 40 pounds six years ago and became a lifetime member of weight watchers. The inspiration was my daughter asking me to be her matron of honor. My old habits are creeping back into my life. I retired last December and gained 17 pounds. If I don't do something, I will lose my lifetime member status, I don't want to start paying $14 to attend the meetings. It appears that team members are upbeat and positive. I'm hoping that you will "rub off on me."

Hi Lydia! Congratulations on all of your success and welcome to the team! I've found this team to be a wonderful source of support as I continue to navigate the sometimes murky waters of maintenance. Be sure to check out our Big Page of Links for lots of great articles, blogs and links on maintenance and check out some of the challenges and support threads we've got going here. We've got lots of active and encouraging maintainers (and aspiring maintainers too!) here on the team, so you'll be sure to your niche here. Welcome again and please let me or one of the other leaders know if you have any questions.

Hi, my name is Lydia and I have been at my goal weight for about a year now and I want to stay there. I really enjoyed Spark People to lose the weight, so I was happy to see there is a support team for maintaining the weight. I hope this team can help encourage me and I can in return encourage others to stay with their new healthy lives.
