Thanks so much for the words of advice! I definitely need to concentrate on drinking more water! It is such an easy thing to do, but for some reason I forget. Since I started tracking my calories this week, I also am shocked as to how many I was eating. Making healthier choices this week has definitely helped keep me fuller without adding all the calories.
Best of luck with your TKR recovery. I used to be an x-ray tech for an orthopedic surgeon and have seen many many patients in your situation! Keep up the therapy and you will be well on your way!!

Hi Carolyn....I can relate to your goal. I too struggle with weight loss. In the past going to the gym knocking myself out why I wonder are the pounds not falling off me. And, then I begin writing down what I put into my mouth.....holey smokes!! No wonder I fail....by nights end I have mindlessly consumed a boat load of calories. A bite here, a handful there and it all adds up. So what helps me is to write it down or click on food intake on SP which I am trying to get used to doing. Another thing that helps me in the past with weight loss......the dreaded water drinking. I know that is a challenge for many of us but if you squeeze some lemon juice into it that makes it better to consume. I also think it helps the interior "plumbing" in some way. I am recouperating from knee replacement surgery and so eager to get into gear to shed these unwanted pounds and begin to feel better. Someone brought to my attention about watching the fitness videos and I intend to work with this as best as I can until I have better movement in my knee. Another thing that helped me in the passed was to walk 4 miles a day in one hour. good luck

Hi! I'm Carolyn. I am 52 years old and live in Alaska. I am a grandmother of one, with one on the way. I have yo-yo dieted my entire adult life, and finding it a real struggle to lose any weight since I turned 50. My goal is to develop better habits of eating healthy and exercising daily. Hopefully these habits will produce some results of weight loss, better mood, more energy and less aching.

I have lost 15 lbs so far since February after my total right knee replacement. I exercise

Hi Grace, I am 73, when I turned 72 I began to lost my final weight through a program www.foodaddictsinrecovery.org

I went from 186 down to 158 in 90 days, after that I kept losing til within a year I was 135 and wearing a size 10 petite down from xlarge when I began.

I had been with the TOPS program and used sparkpeople.com for years (2009-2013) to record date. Kept yo yoing. Finally had to admit I was a food addict using the flour and sugar products to calm me and reward me. I was walking two miles/day, took trips, gained lost. Now I am maintaining my weight loss and want to lose 10 more lbs to weigh 125. I have shrunk from 5'6" to 5'3" have osteopenia for which I take Vit D3 2000 iu/day; my anxiety pill has been eliminated, my thyroid pill is down to 100 mcg where it used to be higher, my cholesterol med has been reduced, my blood pressure pill has been reduced, I do take supplements and found that Biotin has kept my hair from falling out plus it strengthened my nails, I take a multivitamin for women 50+, and I do take a diuretic. So far blood work every 6 mos is good. So, it can be done even though we hit menopause, get fragile, etc. Very glad to have found this special blog. Thanks to you and all the others for posting.

Hi everyone! My name is Grace....just turned 52 and would love to lose 20 pounds. But losing just one pound is a struggle for me and I need help and motivation! I've been on SP for years. Leaving, returning...you all know that feeling I'm sure. Hoping this team will give me the motivation I need 😃

Hi Mary
In 48 hours I will be in for TKR and am looking forward to getting back to "normal" and can begin moving around with ease. Already got my walking odometer ready to count my 10,000 steps. Encouraging to hear positive results from having new knee. Good luck on your journey

Hello - I noticed info about this team on another message - so glad I found you. Been a member of SP for several years, love the information I garner from this site, it is awesome and a blessing..

I have been battling releasing 15-20 lbs for the past few years. I follow W/W in my points+ amount and yet the scale does not move. Exercise has been sporadic - daily accountability would be welcome...

Thanks.

Hello, my name is Joyce, I joined the team yesterday. I am married for over 51 years, we have 3 adult children, David, Denyse and Joell. 10 grandchildren 2 step grandchildren, 2-1/2 great grandchildren (3rd is due in Sept) and 2 step great grandchildren. I am active in Red Hats, chruch and lead an ecumemical Bible study. I am also a team leader of Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. Just took that on, the one leader left and the other asked for help. We have one dog Kelie (she is going blind and that upsets us but it taking it one day at a time), and 2 birds, Robbie(African gray) and Candy (a Caique). The pets run our lives. I have been on sparks since 2103 but not active until Sept of 2014. so far I just seem to gain lb, then lose a lb. I am hoping to break that cycle. I had lost 27 lbs over the past 8 years and in the past 3 years gain 20 back some of that was due to stress (my mom lived with us and she had dementia) but some is just me . Glad to be part of this team. Have a great day,

Good morning all! I have been on SparkPeople for awhile, but usually don't use the message boards. For this next part of my journey, I have decided to delve into the spark teams and meet some new people!

I am a 30+ year veteran teacher - I am married and have two children. Our youngest graduates from high school on Thursday. In less than 90 days, we will be without children in the house for the first time in 25 years. I don't know if I am excited or sad.

We live in Western North Carolina. I love to kayak, walk and hike. But I would rather sit and read or craft.

If we couldn't laugh we would all go insane! - JB.

Hello!

I am new to SP, but not a stranger to diet plans. I have had great success with low carb plans. I'm getting back on the wagon and my husband is getting on board too. I'm looking forward to getting to learn my way around the site and maybe even getting involved in some of the exercise routines suggested. Being 50+ makes the weight loss a bit more challenging than in the past! I wish everyone success on their weight loss journey, and I'm hoping to stay motivated by all the success stories!

Hello!

I'm happy to be part of the team! My journey toward health started back in October when I had the flu. I was sick for a few days and did not eat and decided it would be a great time to begin moving toward healthy! I lost about 25 lbs. on my own from October to the end of December. I joined SP on December 28 to continue my journey. I've lost another 28 lbs. since then. I now have about 15 lbs. to lose.

I'm looking forward to being part of this team and giving and receiving support! Go out and make this a great weekend!

Hi Everyone! I Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Andrea and I am 50 years old. I live in Virginia with my husband and youngest daughter. Ive never been overweight and most people wouldnt consider me overweight now, but Im trying to be a healthier me so Im starting this journey with a clear mind and an open heart. I was recently placed on cholesterol medication to get my cholesterol down. Type II diabetes runs on both sides of my family and I dont want to have to deal with that. Currently I weigh in at 165 and I would like to get down to 150. I have already made some changes to my diet and have joined a gym. If anyone has a great workout routine or some great vegetarian dishes I would love to hear from you.

Im looking forward to getting to know everyone in the group and I will be checking in often.

Hi
I'm Raffie. I was a member of the 50+ with 40-25lbs to lose, but I lost a load of weight and now have 15lbs to lose so thought that I would join here.

I cycle a lot, walk my dogs a lot too and am generally finally shifting the accumulated timber.

What else?
I work part-time as a dog groomer. Used to be full time but I smashed my wrist to smithereenies 5 years ago so I just like to keep my hand in nowadays.
I work part-time as an office manager for a Guitar Academy
I listen to music all the time too and dance about the house when I think that nobody is looking. I dance about the place when they are looking too. It's my house and I can dance if I want to emoticon
I am looking forward to joining in the chit-chat.

Blessed are the cracked for it is those who let in the light.

Goals: log in and participate daily!
Keep my calorie intake w/in goal
Exercise as planned

Looking forward to this! emoticon

Hi everyone - I actually have about 20 to lose, but will be happy with 10 - 15. So here's hoping we all make our goals!

I started a cleanse 5 days ago, doing pretty well, and getting good exercise - Snowshoed yesterday several miles with hubby, and today we went back and hiked it (no snowshoes) and went further and uphill to beautiful views, probably at least 5 miles, so I'm really happy with my energy level (shakes!) and my legs hanging in there for me. Whoo hoooo!

With just 11 pounds left to reach my goal weight, I thought it was time to join this team. I've been in the 25-49 pounds to lose team since I joined SP in November. I'm 57 and gained a lot of weight after an accident that put me in a wheelchair for 3 months. I've lost 25 pounds on SP so far, and I couldn't be happier!

I hope to inspire others with my success, and encourage everyone to work hard to reach your own goals!

Hi team. My name is Elaine. Been poking around SP for about a month and realized I didn't really introduce myself to the team. Looking to drop 20 pesky pounds and looking for all the motivation I can get!

I cannot exercise my way out of a bad diet.

emoticon with setting small goals, ie. Next 2 weeks 2-3 lbs. Make realistic goals so you feel good about success. If you lose more, Bonus! Or at least 10mintes a day exercise first week, 15 min week 2 and 3. You can always do more but at least you feel on track.

Hi, I'm new to this team. I am 51 (closer to 52) and am having an awful time with menopausal weight gain, mostly in my belly though I also seem to have lost my cheekbones and my round face makes me feel fatter than I am. Its all very frustrating, as are hot flashes and lack of libido.

I'm hoping that this team will help me battle these problems and help me feel not so alone in this wicked phase of life! My name is Kelly and any advice you can offer will be much appreciated!

Hi everyone! I"ve just come back to SP after I took an extended vacation (read relapse) last spring. Everything was going so well but I got lazy from posting and tracking and now I'm not exactly starting over but I have lost a lot of ground. That's ok, I'm not beating myself up about it. Just trying to get back on track. Feel free to read my blog on starting the week out right. It's taken me til the end of January to get going but I feel like I'm ready to knuckle down again. Would welcome any encouragement and wish you all success in meeting your goals here on SP. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi, I'm Jeanne and I live in Arizona. Glad to join the team-- not sure how it works, though; how do we add points to the team? Are they added automatically from our personal points or is there something additional to do?

I just turned 50, but I've done Weight Watchers more times than I can count and SP a couple of times before. Haven't had much success with weight loss since I got married 24 years ago. Ha. This time I'm a retired empty-nester... so maybe it will be easier? :-D Kids are off to college, so now I only have to plan meals with my low-carbing husband in mind. In fact, all my "favorite" weight-loss obstacles are gone: I'm not teaching anymore, so my stress level is low and I am not too tired or busy to exercise. I am years past cancer surgeries, chemo and radiation, so my energy level is not compromised. I have recently rediscovered sewing as a hobby, so maybe that will keep me out of the fridge. I have two dogs that love to walk, chickens that lay eggs, and organic veggies growing in my garden. Surely I can keep up with this for more than the three or four weeks I usually last?

Great to "meet" all of you!

Hello, My name is Donna and I come from Northern Wisconsin. I first came across SparkPeople a few years back but my life started in a crazy spin so I never kept up.
I have lost and gained many times in my life but cant seem to keep it off. I really need to lose 15 - 20 lbs. so I am hoping that this year is my year. I love to walk, ride my bike, cross-country ski, fish and camp. I have participated in the Warrior Dash for 2 years now and need to get in shape for this year.

With God all things are possible
