Hello my name is Deanna. I lost 53 pounds here in 2006-2007 I got pregnant and gained it all back. I did go back down some after the birth of my son but I have not been able to lose since and have tried multiple ways. I need lots of support and someone to keep kicking me in the pants to keep me going. looking forward to meeting you all!

Hi, I am Pixieburds. I am 60 years old and have been on my weight loss journey for two years. Right now I am stuck in another long plateau. I think I have gained and lost the same 3 pounds every week for the past 4 months. It is do frustrating. But I am following my diet, I am limiting carbs a lot, I keep my portions reasonable. And I am exercising 5-6 days a week with strength training. I know that eventually it will move downward again. But I sure am tires of the 180's. I started out at 253, and I have lost lots of inches. I am stronger now than ever in my life too. Most of all, my health is better. My diabetes is controlled, and I keep the blood sugars less than 125. I no longer need to use my CPAP for sleep apnea, I am not taking pain meds for my arthritis, and I don't have to take Prilosec any more for GERD. So, even though the scale is stubborn, I know I am on the right track. Hope everyone has a nice weekend.

Hello Team,
My name is Brenda, and I am from Eastern Arkansas. I have been on Sparkpeople (off and on) since 2007. I have lost and gained the same 30 pounds since 2003. It seems that I have been trying to lose weight all my life. In 2011, after years of trying to find what was wrong with me, I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism. On top of that I have sleep apenea and I have had three knee replacements in the past 12 years. I am often exhausted and have no energy or motivation. I am the slowest Loser.

****Brenda****

emoticon everyone , my name is Linda & I just joined. I've been a member of spark since 11/2009. Started at 276lbs. & the lowest I got was 202 lbs. I never saw Onederland yet. That is a main goal for me this year. I've been losing the same 30 to 40 lbs. since 2009. I have been back on track since 1/3/2015. I'm down to 234 lbs. as of today. This time around it's slow going losing the weight. I think my age is finally catching up slowing down my metabolism or just maybe I'm consuming more calories than I think I am. A lot of food I eat has the calorie content on the packaging. I guess I have to get back to weighing & measuring everything. If that doesn't work I have to start walking more.

Go for it, CandyCane! I just turned 60 and have completely transformed my body over the last 7 years. Slow and steady is the way to do it. I get a lot of steps, do a little strength training, and track everything I eat. But I eat plenty! Make easy exercises an every day habit and you'll be on your way!

Hi, I just joined this team. I've been a member of SP for 2 1/2 yrs now. I've lost 44 lbs so far. I've come up on a brick wall, so to speak. I just have no motivation or even desire to do anything regarding my health/diet/fitness. I know that's got to change and when I saw this team, I thought maybe I'd find something or someone that can help me get my spark back! I'm a 57 year old mom & grandma. I did found some good books on fitness for those 50 yrs old and older by Dr Karl Knoff. It starts out slowly, building up strength and flexibility and stamina. I'm going to try that out starting tomorrow!

I'm back at Spark People after a few years away (I was Myrtlebee or Myrtleboo--I don't remember). Anyway, I was on this team before. I will be concentrating on changing unhealthy habits to healthy ones in small steps and will be happy if that happens to result in weight loss. I do need to lose a pretty significant amount of weight, but I am trying to improve my health most of all.

I am new to this team but not to Sparkpeople. I have been on this weight loss journey for 13 years now and have lost 114lbs. I have come close to reaching my goal weight once and had lost almost 252lbs but had a stroke at 28 years old and gained alot of my weight back. I am committed to losing this weight the right way this time and doing it slow WITHOUT diet pills that cause stroke! so far I have changed my diet to eating healthier food choices and I have been exercising more at the gym. I also have an accountability partner in my sister and fellow sparker, Artist8784 who keeps me on track. she challenges me and we both recently bought fitbit activity trackers to challenge ourselves to go further with exercise. One of the big things that has helped me is to take measurements other than weight. when I haven't seen alot of weight loss I have seen tremendous changes in inches lost. for instance this last month I lost 6.4lbs but lost 11 inches total off my body. where I was hoping for 2lbs a week in weight loss and didn't get it I was still happy because I lost inches. anyways, to find out more about me see my sparkpage there is alot more to read there.

Thank you Westernsage for inviting me to the team! I use my Wii Fit equipment as my scale and always set my weight loss goal as a half pound in two weeks. I am maintaining at the upper end of healthy BMI, but it might not be my healthiest weight. I'll figure it out ... SLOWLY!

Well, I'm back for the first time since 2012. I am looking for a woman I used to follow on here and I'm pretty sure she was on this team. I can see her face and I wish I could remember her screen name. She had mobility issues and had lost over 100 pounds last I knew. She would use an arm bicycle. I know this is pretty vague, but, maybe someone will remember. Any suggestions as to who she may be is great appreciated emoticon

Returning Member...

Hubby and I are working to lose 60 lbs over the next year. He has a severely damaged heart and is on a very low calorie/ low sodium plan and I'm doing the same plan with him. Since Sept. 13th, he's down 23 lbs and I'm down 13 lbs.

Hey there. IDK if i ever introduced myself on here. I've been away from SP for... I don't even know. A long time.
I have watched my weight creep up over the past few years. I am officially at my highest high.
:(
I really need people who I can chat with and relate to who don't judge me.
I'm a yoga, hoop and belly dance teacher. My life goal is to motivate people (especially women) to live the life they want now at this size, in this body.
But that doesn't mean that I don't want to get my health in order before it's too late!
I'm interested in making some new and active SP friends.
Namaste :)

New to the group but been on SP a while now. I'm 36, sahm that homeschools my youngest and apparently slow at weight loss. Hormones caused my weight gain, I've been off them a few yrs now but the weight stayed.
I got serious about weight loss starting mid Aug. I even started boxing beginning of Sept. I'm averaging a 5" & 2.5 lbs loss a month. I get frustrated sometimes because I feel I should be losing as much as many others, 1-2 lbs a week. I have a decent diet & exercise 30-50 mins a day.

REJOINING, OLD MEMBER...

Hi, I'm Vicki and I'm 58 years old. Salt has always been hard for me to cut back on but due to my husbands severely damaged heart he has to cut back to no more than 2000 grams a day and 1200 calories a day. So I'm following the same plan he's doing to make it easier on both of us. Right now our goals are to eat in a much healthier fashion and to lose 60 lbs over the next 12 months.

Hi, I'm Kris. I joined the team a while ago but don't think I ever introduced myself. I'm 45 (nearly 46) and married to a wonderful man. We have a great life and love riding the Harley, hanging out with family and playing with our many pets (1 cat, 2 Russian tortoises, 2 Ball Pythons).

I've been on this journey for a long time and I keep losing and re-gaining the same 40lbs. I want it gone! I am working on a new program where I can make lasting changes to live the healthiest life possible.

Recently I decided to take control of what we eat by making a grocery list and doing the meal planning. It has worked out really well. I've made 90% of our meals at home for the past 2 weeks and all have been healthy, low calorie, low fat type recipes. Many of them from SP. It's amazing how much different I feel just in two weeks of not eating out. I don't feel sluggish or bloated. And I definitely don't miss any of the junk. Even when we'd go out to eat, I'd try to get the healthiest option---but shockingly---those options aren't all that healthy. All the chemicals, preservatives, grease, and ick were just slowing me down. I'm sleeping better and waking up without an alarm. I don't feel as tired in the morning as I used to. What a huge change!!!

Anyway, I'm a believer that a slow approach helps those new habits really sink in. I'm happy to be on the team!!!

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.

NEVER 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



Diane from NC

If you cheat, you lose everything but weight.

TAKE BACK YOUR TEMPLE!!!

1 Cor. 6:19-20 - What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [which is] in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

Eph. 2:10 - For we are God�s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.

2 Cor. 5:17- This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person

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
