Welcome Teelavoie, and congrats on your weight loss!! I have lost only 10 lbs but I have not gotten past the planning stage for the exercising. I help water almost every night for about 1 hr. and I walk some, but you are doing great. Keep up the GOOD WORK. DLG0505, I am like you, I am learning to eat smaller portions, and to feel full. 'I don't need that much food' is a surprise to me. I can eat a few walnuts and feel great, a yogurt can hold me for a few hrs. I don't need a sandwich and chips, it really is an amazing discovery.
Welcome, Theresa! and congrats on your great progress so far. I know you'll find the community here will help you keep going as you interact with some of the great Spark People you'll find on the teams and message boards!

I am glad you decided to join in on posting. You are doing fantastic on your weight loss by losing 30 pounds. I've been here 3 months and have lost oh about 8! But what's more important to me is that I'm becoming aware of what I am eating and doing or not doing to make myself healthier.
You certainly have made great decisions about working out and tracking your nutrition. Your journey is going in the right direction - keep it up!
Have a great weekend and if you need a buddy give me a holler!

Hi! My name is Theresa. I have been using Sparkpeople for almost 3 months now and have not posted anything yet. Guess I just didn't know what to say, but I am so happy with this site and with my results so far that I just decided I should share.
I started using Sparkpeople about a week after i decided that i had reached my limit and had to do something! My weight had climbed to 198 lbs! ( And since I'm only 5 ft. that is a lot) i was finding that I was having difficulty with pains in my legs when walking and decided that i had to do something NOW or else.
Well almost 3 month later, using the website to track my nutrition and activity, I am now down 30 lbs.! I still have 40 more to go, but I already feel like a new person. I am exercising daily, yoga twice a week, and the gym the other days for strength training M, W, Fr, and cardio the other 2. I've discovered how good it makes me feel and can't figure why I waited so long to start!
I would love to hear from others.
Thanks for listening.
