HI DIANE AND WELCOME, I THINK WALKING REALLY HELPS YOU TO LOSE. IT CAN BE DISCOURAGING WHEN THE WEIGHT IS SLOW TO COME OFF. BUT IT WILL JUST DON'T GIVE UP.

Hi everyone. My name is Diane and I am an extremely slow loser. I lose about 1/2 -1 lb a month. I have tried so many plans to get this monster under control. I joined SP in February. I was doing well with the changes that I made and then my health issued flared up. I am currently recuperating and trying to get some things in place so that I can continue my journey. Because I am a very slow loser, it just discourages me so much especially when I see others in my threads losing 2-3 pounds per week compared to my 1/4-1/2 lb per week. I seem to gain weight so fast and it takes me forever to lose it.

I look forward to chatting with you and your successes. I am a person who loves to encourage and inspire others and I look forward to being on this team for support and encouragement.

SparkCheers

Hi, I recently joined Spark and this team. I'm 29. My SO works out of town all week and I take care of his son and our son at home. It gets a little stressful at times. At the beginning of the year, as my son turned three, I realized that I gained 60 pounds since he was born! That's a lot of weight. I am hoping to take the weight off a little faster than I gained it, but I know that slow and steady always wins the race. emoticon

Hi,
My name is Francine. I joined sparks in February, but just joined here this week-end.
I lost 35 pounds and then gained 10 back, and just cant seem to get back on track, so I joined sparks. Since I've joined, I haven't lost anything but I have changed some of my bad habits and I do exercise more.

I do have a few health problems. I don't like to use that as an excuse, but it does seem to have an effect on my diets.

I am hoping that by changing some of my bad habits, I will lose the weight slowly but surely.

April Goal: I feel that I need another month at the same goals.
5000 steps a day
Chair exercises twice a day

Hi! I've just joined this team but I joined Spark in October. I've lost about 13 pounds since joining and I want to lose another 9 pounds. Since joining, I've set a goal of 2 pounds off a month because I want to set up a lifestyle I can live with for the long term.

My weight history: Until 40 I was average weight without effort. After that I went through overweight to obese twice. I was halfway back there last summer and decided it turn it around before it went any further.

I'm British, living permanently in Japan and 63 years old. Looking forward to getting to know you. emoticon

Returning to Spark people because I lost focus and of course the weight crept back on. Recently weighed myself and am heavier than before. UGH! I hope to gain inspiration and motivation from all of you here who have been more successful than I have!

Hi, I just found this team and I think it's what I need. I have about 60 pounds to lose -- 60 to 70. I've been with SP for almost two years and have lost about 30. I'm just stuck. I'm on my way to a meeting now but will be back later to read posts and such.

Welcome Deborah!
When you have many health problems or a lot of weight to lose, it is easy to get discouraged.
Set yourself up for success by making small steps and starting streaks.
For example, walk to the mailbox every day (that is how I started.)
Drink water whenever you feel a craving...even if you give in to it, you have had your water!
Smile at your reflection every time you pass a mirror. When you are alone, seeing a smiling face is very uplifting. emoticon
Journal or track your moods (include happy ones...too many people forget them!) your nutrition and activity.
And keep checking into Spark...we may be "Imaginary friends" but we still care! emoticon

Hello, my name is Deborah. I have 100 lbs to loose...and have had for the past 3+ years since being diagnosed with diabetes, high blood pressure, two carcinoid tumors, and being told I am bi-polar within two weeks. I went into a tail-spin and had out of control eating for many months after that. I will loose real good for a few months then some little thing will upset me and I gain most of it back...get upset about that and gain some more. I am on a new med for my bi-polar and this one seems to be working well with controlling my moods and thus is keeping my feelings in check much better. I have been with SP for a few years...forgot about logging in for a long time. Then when my Dr. told me I might need bladder surgery--but--could avoid it if I lost at least 20 pounds, I decided then to get back in gear with SP and be faithful daily about logging in and tracking everything. I love how I can rack my blood sugars during the day and that helps keep that in check. I need a feeling meter! I thrive with lots of conversation...I live in the country and have no friends. My husband works all day and when he is home he wants to just relax and enjoy some TV. I am a mother of 5 and grandmother to 3. I love cats and for a period of 5 years we bred the Munchkin cat breed and showed many of them to Supreme Grand Champion status. We now have 5 left and have adopted an old tom who lives outside and ventures indoors when the weather is too chilly for him. I am excited to be a part of this group!!

I lurked for a little while and finally joined, then didn't get a chance to log in to SP for a week or so (very unlike me, usually I log my nutrition & fitness daily). Slow losers.....this sounds like just the right team for me! I have a goal of 3 lbs/month.

I'm a 57 year old woman that has a total of 92 lbs to lose to reach a decent weight where I can possibly get off of blood pressure pills and also not hurt so much from RA of the spine. I've been told by my doctor that the less extra weight I'm carrying the less stress there will be on my joints. I don't expect to lose it fast. It took me 8 years to put on all the weight. My goal is to drop 2 lbs every month and keep it off til I reach my 92 lb goal.
I am married to Bob and he's just had to get a pacemaker/defibrullator in March, and is still adjusting to having a very weak heart (20% heart strength), so I tend to stress over his health a lot, and when I'm stressing out, I tend to eat more than I should. So I will be working on making healthier food choices over time.

Hello!
I've lost 30 lbs since this time last year, so that's ... 2.5 lbs a month? S L O W ! ! So I think I'm in the right place. I have 15 or so to go. I'm terrified of just waking up one morning to find all 30 lbs back on plus a few.
Glad this team is here and looking forward to meeting people.

Welcome emoticon to the team, Leigh and Tiffany!
This after-holiday time is great for setting new goals and starting to take baby steps.
Tracking your food and exercise is very important to weight loss.
Sometimes it's helpful to join a challenge.
Above all, smile at yourself each day in the mirror, and love yourself, because you are worth the effort it takes to get healthy and fit!

Hey. I'm a long time lurker, well even that is not really true bc I keep taking months off of Spark. So I haven't really even lurked this team.
Anyways, I'm Leigh and I am such a slow loser that I'm a gainer!
Seriously, I have done every diet out there and they all work, once. Then never again. I am at the point where I really don't know how to lose weight.
But the thing I am really looking for on SP is a team, or members who want to post and chat regularly. Support! That is the thing I really REALLY need.

Hello, hello!

I am Enk and definitely a slow loser. I lost 50lbs over the span of a year through permanent lifestyle changes (90% food choices) and I am hoping to lose another 65-ish pounds over the next two years. When I started losing weight rather quickly, I told myself I'd be okay with weight loss wrinkles and extra stretch marks (I get them when I lose weight... so weird) until I got my first weight loss wrinkles and extra stretch marks. NOPE! So, I have slowed down because I am vain. Also never going to be a single-digit clothing size lady and that's fine, but a size 12 in pants would be nice.

Welcome to the team, Kat!
I'm a double-digit person myself, slowly moving down! At size 8, I'd be all wrinkles!!
Best wishes!

Esther!

Hey all. I joined this group some time last week (or maybe the week before?) but it has been crazy at our house, so this is the first I've sat at the computer in ages.

I'm Kat in Boise. on my 2nd marriage and I have a teen son from my first marriage. He lives with his dad. I want to lose the weight that has been globbing onto me since just after HS. Yes, I've been overweight for 20 years.

I have no desire to be the HS size again, and I want to stay in double digit sizes, but I'd much rather smaller number! ;) I want to keep my curves but I also want to do normal every day things w/o my heart racing and my face getting red.



Losing weight slowly is so much more appealing than GO! GO! GO! GO!

Well behaved women rarely make history.


~Kat~

Hi, I'm Therese from Sweden (live in Tunisia though) and I'm a returning member of SP and this team. I lost track and gained almost all my lost weight back.. Now I'm back and determined not to ruin my own progress again, and also to take it slow and healthy.

Hi, I'm Elizabeth from northern Vermont. The time has come to get serious about loosing weight and getting into shape. The doctor has pretty much limited the intensity of exercise for now which is fine. I'm married with grown children a have 6 beautiful grandchildren.
Looking forward to being part of this team.

Elizabeth

Hello everyone. My name is Kim and I have been using SparkPeople for about two weeks. I'm starting to find different tools and a few "teams" I think will help support my success. My weight issues are from yo-yo dieting, medication and lack of motivation. I've been at my goal weight many times and yet today I am back in another familiar territory larger than I like. Losing weight some weeks goes well and then for several weeks I will see the same number on the scale. This time I'm looking at the entire picture and not just the number. I truly want this to be the time it sticks. Here's to make positive life changes:)

Hi everyone! My name is Karen and because of many reasons my doctor has put me on a very slow program starting with consistently adhering to my raw organic eating program. This is going to slow my program down with weight loss for sure. Thought since my moto is "Being the Turtle" I'd join this team.

The best way to succeed without crashing is to go S-L-O-W! Right? LOL

You are right about the weight going slower as you get closer to goal. That's why we all have to remember the basics and stay consistent.
Lifetime fitness is a marathon, not a sprint.

HI My name is Kylie and I have lost 40 pounds in about a year and a half ! I have 20 more pounds to go until i reach the top of the healthy weight range and 35 more to go until I reach my goal weight .The more I lose the harder it is to get the pounds off and the more stressful it is , I have gone back to baby steps and its been going great ! I saw this team and thought it is for me ! I am looking forward to be on an active team and taking it slow , I hope to work up from being a slug to a tortoise and then maybe just maybe a Ninja Turtle ! Turtle power !

Emily, just think, because your weight loss is slow, it's giving you time to make those healthy habits real lifestyle change! Congrats on your achievement! And welcome to the team!
