Hello all! I'm so happy to have found this group that exactly fits my perspective on weight loss. I've lost 30 lbs in 2010, took a 6 month hiatus, kept the weight off and now I'm ready to lose some more. Happy 2011!

Hi team! I am Karoline. I joined SparkPeople in February 2008 and lost some weight successfully. Then went to Ghana in the fall of 2008 and gained most of it back, of all things. Then I haven't been too successful with losing after that, I lost some but then went to India this fall and it all came back on. I don't have too much to lose (about 25 pounds) but I want to do it slow and keep it all off, for once! :-)

Hi all!

My name is Trish and I joined this team after reading The Slowest Loser blogs on Daily Digest. I have at least 120 lbs to lose and I have hypothyroidism, which can deter my weight loss efforts. I am trying to establish a healthy lifestyle.

Aloha to Everyone:
This team caught my eye as I am such a slow loser and that is what always seems to make me give up!! This year, after advancing to the 'obese' side, I set my goal realistically and 09/2011 should be more in order for me, rather than 02/2011. I joined 24-Hour Fitness (one benefit of being a senior citizen - free membership here in Hawaii with your AARP medicare plan! So, here I go again.....years and years to ups and downs. I can do it!

Hello, I just turned 58 and I would love to finally lose this weight that I have been carrying most of my life. I have tried so many times with no success. I think that I would feel a lot better about myself and have more confidence if I could finally accomplish losing weight. I am new at sparkpeople so I am not sure how to use this site but give me time

Hi. I just joined this team. I have been on and off Sparkpeople for a few years now and I am back here again in 2011. I am 47 years old and live near Chicago. I am married with a 17 year old daughter. I am a slow loser so I was excited to see this team. I think that I have been discouraged in the past but this time I will not only focus on the number on the scale but the healthy habits I am forming. I am looking for support and encouragement in my journey.

Hi, my name is Emma, I'm 22 year old college grad from Philadelphia. I've been a member for a year or so, but I kinda got out of the habit of using SP (not sure why, though my year has been a little crazy since I moved a few times, graduated, etc.) I gained weight since graduating and would like to work on losing the few pounds I've gained. More importantly, my goal is to make healthy lifestyle changes, like working fitness back into my schedule and making healthy food choices.

emoticon Hello, my name is Vicki and I'm a poet & don't know it emoticon
I wrote a little poem for 2011...hope U like it! emoticon
The title of my poem is...

....'Transformed from 'gory' to Glory!'

The old year creeps slowly out with ALL the trials weighing down his back.
The burden he carries is often more than he can bear, causing a lack.
His youthful visage & strength departed long before the beginning of fall.
As leaves drifted down to the ground, winter began his plaintive call.
Upon winter's arrival, this year's beauty was tarnished with the cold.
Low temperatures sent shivers through his wizened body, bent & old.
The New Year beckons with the beauteous smile of a newborn baby.
Gathering strength the old one moans as he crawls slowly, hoping maybe...
He ends his reign hoping many will promise themselves they'll do it right.
Will this be the year they'll lose the weight, exercise & never lose sight?
Can we be transformed from the shame of this year's failure to succeed?
Will we dust ourselves off, journeying through our body's craves & need?
Shall we be transformed from what we look like now, to a brand new glory?
In 2011, I pray ALL of us will be able to change the path of our life's story!

Vicki Cooper/December 31, 2010

Hi all - my name is Juli and I live in SE Florida. I'm 44 and have 100+ to lose (and have for at least the past 10 years). I've been in Spark several times before, but never really focused on the right things. So ... with my new start I'll be taking baby steps, focusing on one improvement at a time to head myself down the right road.

Happy New Year my name is Marianne. I started SP the end of August. I am so glad I did. It has helped me tremendously. The recording of food is just what I need. Keeps me aware of what I put in my mouth.
I was very worried about the holidays, but I made it through with out giving up. Without SP I would have thrown in the towel. I didn't deprive my self of any of the goodies. I had a small taste, and that was it. Last year I was a glutton. Last year I gained weight,this year I lost a little bit. I will keep Sparking. Good health to everyone and a happy New Year.

Good morning, and Happy New Year! emoticon

My name is Autumn, and I've been a member of SparkPeople for a little over a year. Was doing very well with my weightloss initially, but overdid it working out and fell completely backwards. Now I'm starting over with a new year and a clean slate, and am ready to be back on the bandwagon. Slow and steady wins the race!

So excited to get to know you all!

Good Morning,

I'm new to Slowest Loser. I've been a member of SP for a couple years. I stay motivated for awhile and then allow the stresses of life to become obstacles to my health and weight loss program. I am most successful when I track my food and exercise. My biggest problem is I spend too much time exploring SP rather than actually doing exercise and that is key for me: Exercise, Exercise- which includes fun stuff.

I've also joined the 28 day boot camp challenge, so please root for me to gain some momentum and keep it going for 2011!!

I have been sparking since August, and joined reight after the blog about the cat. I am definitely suited to be on this team. I actually prefer a slower weight loss. I have been stalled over the holidays, but am going to get back to normal tomorrow. Hope to show a loss next week.

Welcome Dycarpenter1. Just to let you know, I tried to view your spark page but the background was too dark to read the words on my computer. Happy New Year.

thank you for welcoming me to the slowest loser. I hope to change my slow status in the coming year.

Afoot52, I like your "dance as if no one is watching."
I plan to do that tonight.

Happy New Year! My name is Sue from Ks and I have been a spark member since July 2008. I lost 16 #'s & kept it off for pretty long but since have gained 6-8 #'s back and have "played" with Spark this past year. I even have 7,575 spark points! I keep trying to get back on track. New Year, New Goals. Lets do this together.

emoticon AFOOT52 - to our team. There are certain guidelines that SP likes us to follow. Exercise,water and logging in food. These are basics to help us achieve consistency. From there we moved forward, with the help of teams, team mates, and postings. I find postings is a great place to get inspiration. Read our posts and answer where you would like, to help us to get to know you better.
Have a great New Years.

Hi I'm Steve from the Ozarks. I've been 35+ pounds overweight for the last 10 years. I'm a yo-yo with my dieting and exercise. One of my big hurdles is consistency with anything to do with getting healthier. Bottom line: lazy! I'm looking for help staying consistent.

I'll introduce myself to start the thread. I'm Carolyn.I'm from Omaha, NE in the States but I have lived and I work as a nurse at a Christian hospital in Africa for the past 33+ years.
I am 61 years old and I have been obese since for about 20 years. Although I've been on SP for almost 3 years, I have lost and gained and lost again but very slowly. I'm down only about ten pounds and I AM the Slowest Loser!

How about you?
