I have been a Spark member for a while. On again, off again. Now I am on again hoping to lose some weight and looking for a team to motivate me. My short term goal is to lose 10 pounds by September 17. Sounds simple, but it's not I want to lose 10 pounds and keep it off so I can go to the next goal.10 pounds of fluid weight loos is not what I am striving for. Not only do I want to lose weight I want to learn to eat health so that I can keep the weight off. See I have lost 30 pounds over and over again. I want to lose 30 pounds and move on to 60 pounds. I want to get fit again, Help!!!!

Hi everyone! I am back on Spark People after about a 4 year break. I did great then, I lost 35 lbs. In those 4 years though, my weight crept back up and now I am 10 lbs heavier than I was when I started last time! Like so many, my challenge is not only going to be losing the weight but keeping it off. Looking forward to sharing the journey with you.

Hi Debbie, I'm Leona, and your post really resonates with me...I am just back on Sparkpeople after many years, and I am sooo much heavier that the first time...or the second time...or the third time...

I really feel more ready this time than I have in a long time...if you, Debbie, or anyone else want to buddy up for motivation, check out my Sparkpage! We can do it!

Hello everyone, My name is Debbie. I am looking to get my motivation back and get back on track. I was doing so well, and then the bottom fell out and I lost my motivation and began to put the weight back on. I have to admit, I'm a little angry with myself this time. I know I have to just let it go and start fresh. Looking forward with hope.

Hi everyone!

My name is Nadine and I decided to join this team because it is right up my ally! I used to be a huge sparker, was maintaining my weight and doing well! And then well you know, things happen and I just fell off the wagon, gained all the weight back, and some more, and I've tried getting back on to spark but never had any motivation.

Well! My friend invited me to her wedding next year, and it's going to be in Columbia! I am super excited, but I also want to feel good about my body when I head go out there, so that I think was the little kick in the butt to get me back on Spark and REALLY stick with it this time around and so far so good!

I hope to meet some new sparkfriends in this team to help keep me motivated, and I hope I can do the same for all of you emoticon

Now that I have finished with the cancer treatment, I thought I was finished, but there is a very long list of things I can and cannot do. I still have to concentrate on proteins and water to help my body rebuild, it will take another 6 or so months for that. Sunshine is another taboo. yuck. Anyway, I am returning. I am now 195 pounds, and needing support for the rest. I figure 160 is my weight goal.

Thanks!

I know exactly what you mean! It's so hard to stay motivated when everyone else gives up. It's also nice to have someone else to be accountable with. Don't get me wrong, I'm not blaming anyone else for my past failures. I own those. I am a sucker for a good challenge, though! *goes off to find one*

Have a great day!

emoticon Tammy! An active group is so important! Most of mine have become so stagnant that I feel they're 'weighing' me down (pun intended). It's just not motivating to start a challenge and have one or two people join and then drop out before they get halfway through. Or have a team with thousands of members and only 3 or 4 who actually post.

Just like LLREED (prior post), I have been with SP since 2007. My original account name was imasillymomma, and I'd lost 35 pounds before falling off the wagon in 2008. As you can see, I deleted that account and over the years created two others, so now I'm up to version 3 of my screen name!
emoticon
Anyway, I am now 24 pounds heavier than my original starting weight back in 2007 and I can't stand it anymore. It's been years, and I've been through a lot. My body has changed, and I've quit smoking (more poundage added to the equation). I know the same things that worked for me when I was 32 may not work for me now that I'm 40 (eek!).

Feel free to check out my spark page and add me if you'd like. I know that "back in the day" it helped tremendously having others to help me stay accountable and having a very active group to work with!

Have a great day!

That's all you can do is keep pushing. It's like quitting smoking....don't quit quitting. I'm like you I lost over 20 pounds only to gain it back (plus some more) now I'm struggling to lose it again. I keep telling myself I've done it before I can do it again.

Anyway welcome to the team and good luck!

OK, going to try this team and get it going again. I've been with Spark for several years; lost 20 pounds, gained it back and now just can't seem to get it moving again. I've been joining a lot of on-line conferences and seminars on weight loss and health and loving all the information but it gets to the point where I just shut down and quit trying because the information is so contradictory and some of them make it sound like it just doesn't matter what I do or what I eat, it's not going to help. The problem is the quality of food we eat, no it's the toxins in our home, no it's your genes...
So here I am. Just need the motivation to do what I know needs to be done (eat more good food and drink fewer calories). Need a challenging atmosphere because so many people I am friends with here on Spark 'start over' on a weekly basis. I don't want to start over, I want to continue on and just emoticon !

Hello,

I have been with Spark for quite sometime and have lost about 40lbs. I had stumbled upon this team and I am happy that I have found an active team.

I am going back to tracking my food each day and planning. I have found in the past that planning is always a safe bet for me as well as tracking my food.

Silly me I posted on the wall...

Hi there. I just joined the team. I lost 40lbs with SparkPeople 3 years ago. I recently had a baby (he is 2 months old) and now I am 10lbs shy of my highest weight. Since his birth, I've been making bad choice one after the other and it is time to stop. I want to get fit and healthy, not only for myself but for him. I want to be a good example for him, be able to keep up with him and to live a long healthy life to watch him grow... and I want to look good naked. My spark has been re-lit.

Hi, I am back on spark and thought this would be a good team to join. I have wandered around eating, eating, eating. I tried Jenny Craig, lost well enough but gained back, weight watchers, same thing. So I am going with consistency this time. Spark away the pounds. I love SparkPeople's resources. I eat really healthy for the most part just tend to eat too much at times. Need to up the veggies and fruits a little. Less meat. I fractured my spine a year ago and that destroyed my core, rehab a little and now I'm in full swing developing my core and want to get in better shape all around and lose about 60 lbs. I also work night shift and have gone part time, 2-12 hour shifts a week, pick up a 3rd on occasion but nights wipes out the metabolism, on top of being 65, I have a slow, slow, slow metabolism. Gooooo Girl!

It has been so long that I have been on here that I created "new topic titled hi :0)" and I don't know how to get rid of it!!!! Hi :O) My name is Katherine. I have been a member since 2010 also on and off. When I started I was at my highest weight of 175 and lost 25 pounds on Spark. Things happen, as they do, and I have gained 8 of those pounds back. Scary when I started thinking about it because I still didn't even make it to my goal weight yet. So here I am again. I look forward to all the pounds we are going to lose together!!! :)


God gave me this body and it is time for me to take care of it.

Hey Team! My name is Melissa. I've been on and off of Sparks since 2009. I made a lot of progress in 2009 and was within a few pounds of my goal. Then life got tough between 2010-2014 and I preceded to put on even more weight. 2014 wasn't the year, but I decided that 2015 would be the year that I would start making some real progress and take good care of me emoticon Happy to have this team with people that understand the need to relight the Spark. Looking forward to getting to know you all. emoticon

I've had more than my fair share of starts and stops, made more excuses that necessary and finally faced the fact that if I eat mindlessly and never exercise I will gain and gain and gain. I'll never be one of those girls that can eat what ever they want and never gain an ounce. So I'm back. I'm changing my life slowly but surely one work out and one meal at a time. That's all I can handle. I get too overwhelmed when I think farther down the road than that. I'm a friend of the new co-leader Kalantha (Kathy) and I'm blessed as are all of you to have her support.

Let's get this weight off and keep it off!

We can do it!

Take care,
Dottie

Move forward, shed the limitations, shed the weight!

I started Sparks back in Sept and have gone nowhere. Will just have to force myself to track from now on. Going to make 2015 my year!! Looking forward to your support and to giving support to all of you. I plan on not only relighting the Spark but starting a bonfire under myself. emoticon

Hello! So glad to have found this team! I am back on spark again for the 3rd or 4th time. I think I reached my goal at least once but in the past five years, have slowly put back on about 16 pounds. Before it got totally away from me, I came back, because I feel like it sometimes has gotten totally away from me. Really bad food choices and lack of exercise. I know life has gotten in the way several times but that's life right?! Anyways, I decided to get in my own way and get back to it.
Started Monday and lost 3 pounds this week. I am sure it will be tougher next week, so I need to find many, many ways to stay motivated!!

Hi there! I'm back again! I've never given Sparkpeople my full attention and really done anything with it. I'm here to start again! I'm a 45 year old mom of 3 and I've recently gone back to college. Life is BUSY! lol I have about 40 lbs to lose. I hope to find lots of motivation and support here with an occasional kick in the pants if needed!

Thank you!

emoticon I'm a third time SP Weight Loss Professional (which doesn't mean I've made it to goal yet). I've lost lots of weight on both of my previous SP incarnations, but here I am right back where I started again. I REALLY want and NEED to make it "stick" this time because I'm 57 years old and starting to feel the effects of all this extra weight and it's frightening.

I am retired, a mom to an adult son who has Autism, amateur photographer, and dog lover. I also play the guitar, sing in a community chorus, and am taking piano lessons. Thank God I was able to retire and have so much time to dabble in so many fun things!

I look forward to meeting you and supporting each other on this, our final weight loss adventure!
