I've been away, but now I'm back with a passion! I had some major life crises--my son who was born in 2007 was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2011. Up to that point he didn't sleep right which meant I was sleep deprived all the time. His treatment helped with that and now that he's been on chemo that has been working and is in all day school, I'm not so exhausted all the time. I finally have time to take care of myself, but now am fighting the weight I put on over the past couple of years.
My internet connection is also faster so it doesn't take so long to track food. So, now everything is getting weighed before I eat it and everything is getting tracked. Historically, a food journal has been my most effective method of shedding pounds or maintaining my weight. Sparkpeople is the easiest way to do this for me.

I just came back, so I am not anywhere near my goal yet. But I started a medically managed weight loss program with the weight loss shakes and everything. It's a big adjustment; I thought nothing would make me give up my mountain dew! I am also dealing with needing to lose weight so I can have back surgery to fuse a couple of vertebrae in my back.

Glad EVER-HOPEFUL shared the challenge with us. I have made a couple of posts so far.

I hope you are enjoying yourself during this busy time. This morning 14 of us went to our woods at 7:30 am to cut Christmas trees. We were there early to beat the storm that is headed our way. I also got the opportunity to play some games with the grandchildren. Now I better get busy and get the lights on the tree.

I will also be posting a fun Challenge, which revolves
around The Twelve Days of Christmas song.

"On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave
to me - a partridge in a pear tree."

The First Day part of the Challenge asks for you
to supply a healthy pear Recipe.



"On the second day of Christmas, my true love gave to me - 2 Turtle doves !
The Second Day part of the Challenge asks you to find
2 love songs that are slow enough (not TOO slow) - to
do your cool-down, or stretching exercises today.


"On the third day of Christmas, my true love gave to me
3 French hens

Day 3 of the Challenge calls for something French -
a joke, a story, a Recipe, or something interesting
about someone French !


"On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me - 4 calling birds !

We will be the calling birds, in this part of the
Challenge !
I would like you to call by, and visit 4 members of
The Class of April 5-11,2009's SparkPages, leave a
message, comment on their blog, give a Spark-goodie,
or e-mail them - the choice is yours !
Post on this thread who you went a-calling.
Since we do not have our members shown, for your
reference,please watch for our Team's Roll Call,
when it gets sent to you.
That would be the best way to be able to contact
your "Classmates".

I'll leave you now, at Day 4, and contact you with the rest, later.
Meanwhile, I've given you enough to work on, for now !

You are so smart to measure your serving onto a small plate & then move away from the main container. Treats like that always seem to call for one more handful. You have learned & practice self-control, PATSDIARY!

Glad to see you too, Prarie Crocus! Hope your boo-boo is healing nicely! I am such a klutz, and can trip over air! But as long as I can keep on getting up, life is good!

Keep Sparking!!

I haven't checked in here for a while, and it is really nice to see so many of us around! Helen, you seem to have been the one keeping us going - good for you! I have had my ups and downs. Still at -40 pounds, which is good, but not where I want to be. However, I am loving buying size 14 instead of 18! and shopping in the misses dept and not the women's! I have had a few injuries, mostly my own fault! But I keep on going, and I know I am so much healthier than I was. And that is really what it is all about, right??

Have a great day, friends!

I just read the email about getting a new leader for this team. I did join Sparkpeople during this week, but I keep going away and coming back. I'm back again, rather reluctantly, but I think I need to lose that extra 20 lbs. The first 20 were not so hard. Maybe I can keep up with you guys and it won't be so bad. I know--this is supposed to be fun, right? Gona get on the esercise bike now--right now!

Well, even though my ticker says I have only 20 pounds to go, I really need to lose at least 40 more. But the 40 I lost has made a HUGE difference in my life, so I will enjoy seeing what the next 40 will do! WE CAN DO IT!!!

Thanks, Helen! I am glad to see that we are still here. And yes, it is HARD work. But when you see your friends and family struggle every day with health issues caused by their weight, it is an extra inspiration, for sure! I wish I didn't have those particular reasons for working, but at least I feel like I will not have the same problems as I get older.

We CAN do it!!!

Nice to hear from you, Patti! I sent everyone a Goodie, so it looks like I have ignored all of you here. I'm hoping to pick up on everyone's energy and get myself going again. I just seemed to lose focus myself and started regaining those hard-earned lost lbs.

Wishing you better luck than I have had. I guess it has nothing to do with luck! Hard work is more like it. LOL

I've been out of town for a couple of weeks, but I have been active with SP since the beginning. Have not been as successful lately as I was initially, but have learned to maintain my 40 lb loss, which is a feat in itself. Still want to lose 40 more, so making this a new beginning! A big WOO HOO to all of us!!!

Hi - I just came back today. I fell off the SP wagon months ago, and now am re-committing to living healthier. I'm about where I started a year ago. This is not where I expected to be by now! Wish me luck! emoticon

Hi folks! I am still here and have not posted to this group forum before - sorry! (I have responded to some message board hot topics though).
I have lost 62 pounds since start date and have been "idling" around the just under 200lb mark for a few months now. In fact my weight stayed around 200-203/204 from Christmas last year til about April/May of this year!! very frustrating as I had still been exercising like a fiend and watching my food intake carefully. I think my body set-point was around 200 and so it was "stalled" there not knowing what to do. I haven't been below that point since having kids (last one 18 years ago)...so no wonder my body didn't/doesn't know what to do.
I have now taken the approach to not watch the scale and to just keep on exercising and eating well. I think eventually I will win the battle (no matter how painfully slow that will be). I am trying to focus more on the good habits I have acquired and to attempt to see this as my new lifestyle.
I have my moments (sweet cravings that are usually brought on by stress or some emotional issue) but I have been able to hop back on the wagon so far.
I figure if my weight has been a battle all my adult life - I should be a little more patient about how quickly it comes off.
Good luck everyone! My personal goal is to try and lose another 38 (hopefully by the end of this year or sooner)

I'm still here! I'm back on track and working as hard as I can.

I'm Sara, I'm 28 and I need to loose 25 pounds to be at a healthy body fat %. (yes, I'm short!!) I start law school in the fall so I need to make fitness and healthy eating a priority even when I have no time! :)

I'm glad I'm not the only one still working at it from this class :)

Spending a bit too much time off the wagon and chasing it, but I'll keep climbing back up there!
I don't think my body wants to dip below 200lbs but you know, I'll do it if it takes me another year! I've been bouncing about around the 210 mark for a couple of months now...

I'm still here...I have a ways to go before I reach my goal. I need to lose another 50lbs. I was hoping to reach it by October 1st 2010 but that time is creeping up on me. Yikes!! I may need another 6 months. So I am still plugging along.

Maybe we can track our fitness minutes, strenght training, freggies, or something like that? I do all of these anyways.

~NEVER GIVE UP! Because to give up, is like giving in, and to give in, is like quitting and Winners never quit!

I, Paulette, pledge to do everything in my power to become healthier. I will watch the quality and quantity of my food. It will not be easy. I will be tempted. I will not make excuses. BUT, I will stay strong and continue to be focused because I deserve to be skinny and I am worth the work!

I'm still here. Not as active at times as I am trying not to count every single calorie- as I tend to get obsessive. I have been eating based on how I feel and trying to pick healthy foods. Doesn't always work, but I am learning! So far down about 15 pounds. Its these last 5 that are the hardest- it's where I have been for a while now- losing and gaining them.

I am definitely still here! Maybe some more team members could join in on some of the threads, it is fun to see your ideas.
It is slow going with the weight but I have met some great people here and learned many things. Just have to put some of those things into better practice.
Good Luck Team!!

It would be more acurate to say that I'm back. I weighed myself on Sunday to find I weigh a whopping 63.5 kg. My target weight is 55 kg. That puts me almost 20 pounds over.

The last few weeks have been emotionally very stressful, and emotional stress causes fatigue to the point of sleeping 12-15 hours a day.

Anyway, high time I got back on the horse.
