THIS WORKS. WENT ON WEEKS CRUISE DID NOT GAIN A POUND.

my sister walks 15,000 steps a day at 63 years old and has lost 105 pounds. she went from a size 24 to a size 10. all her health issues dropped off as the 105 pounds dropped off.

i gave up grain and sugary products and have lost 44 pounds at age 60. i went from a size 18 to a size 10 shorts and medium tops from a 1 or 2x.

we are both still loosing weight until we reach our goal

Hi, Happy, and welcome emoticon I know where you are coming from. I quit smoking 15 years ago and when I did I instantly put on 20 lbs. It still was the best decision I ever made - in spite of the weight gain. emoticon

Here is my best advice - not complicated and it works: 1) Use your Nutrition Tracker faithfully, every single day, and print out the daily report on that page so you can make sure you are getting the proper balance of fats, carbs, and protein. This will keep you honest and accountable for your choices. Checking your report each day is critical - you want to make sure you are getting the right % of nutrients and not just eating empty calories. Remember, it is possible to stay within your calorie range eating "junk" but that isn't going to promote weight loss and it certainly won't maintain it in the long run emoticon ; 2) Find a few exercises/activities you actually ENJOY doing and then do them 3-4X a week. If you like what you are doing the chances are much better that you will stick with it emoticon ; 3) Stay active with your Team(s) because this is the place you will get encouragement, motivation, and support - including hugs on those days when things are especially tough! emoticon and; 4) Try to have fun with this journey to slimness and better health! It's a given that if you enjoy something you will stick with it! emoticon

One last thought: it isn't important how fast or slowly you lose your weight. This is one area where 'slow and steady wins the race' is more then just some old cliche emoticon . Spark teaches you a new lifestyle and you need time to re-educate yourself and develop a new relationship with food emoticon

Welcome, I find it helpful to check in with sparkpeople everyday. I spin the wheel, record my food, & read some posts or messages. It seems to help & sometimes I even post myself. Hope you have a blessed day & continue on your new lifestyle. One more thing I did the 10-minute exercise challenge. When I finished I felt great. Now I make sure I exercise 20-minutes. Just a little goes a long way. LOL emoticon

Just joined the team today. I've been trying to get back to a healthy lifestyle now for the past several months since I've been putting on weight after quitting smoking. Nothing seems to be grabbing my attention for more than 2 weeks. I'd love to hear what has worked for you - you never know, it could me my "ah ha" moment.

Be careful when you pass judgement on another. Life teaches us lessons in harsh ways when we are mean to others.
