Hi! My name is Ruth (obviously). I have been on Sparks (seriously) for over a year. I have lost 47 pounds. Starting at 265, my goal is to go down to 140. I have exercised faithfully during this time. I like the Leslie Sansone DVD's. I need to work on cutting down sweets more! I am an American serving the Lord in India since 1980! My husband and I have a boarding school and church for the hearing impaired!

Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. I Corinthians 10:31 DeterminedRuth

Hi Team, my name is Laney. I Spark every day and have developed a very healthy lifestyle after years of over-doing everything, from drinking to eating to exercising. I love to check in EVERY day. I'm not sure why I'm not dropping more weight, I'm 5'9" and 180 pounds and the lowest I have been in recent times was 174. Goal is 150.

Consistency is goal #1

Hi everyone! My name is Khadija and I'm a long time sparker but have fallen WAY off track lately. I've had an extremely difficult year and have gained just under 20 pounds since November but I truly feel ready to get back on track TODAY. Over the past few weeks I've returned to some healthy habit like blogging here on sparkpeople, tracking what I eat, and working out on the elliptical several times a week. I love sparkpeople because it makes me feel like I'm a part of a commnity that's committed to taking care of themselves; I'm committing to sharing this journey with you. Take care everyone, we can do this!

Khadija, Chicago

Hello, I was very successful 2 years ago losing weight (although didn't hit goal) using SP. Life got busy and I stopped tracking and have gradually gained backed 3/4 of the weight I lost. I am trying to get back on track and am hoping weekly weigh ins will help me stay accountable.

Hello all. I am Michele and I am making a commitment to me, to get healthy. Getting familiar with SP and see the value of other peoples journey.

For me this means loosing weight and getting my A1C back down by controlling my daily food intake and seeing exercise as a positive thing. I have mental and emotional sludge that has contributed to my self neglect so it is a daily choice to overcome the negative and see the benefits of caring for me.

All this is easier said then done when there are a lot of demands on me so I hope to get support and help staying on track with this community. I have set my phone alarm to remind me to weigh Mondays and jump in with both feet!

Hi everyone, my name is Gail and I've been sparking for 3 1/2 years,with some ups and downs along the way... BUT I'M STILL HERE. I've joined and quit many other weight loss programs over the years, but SP is the best one I've tried. I'm 25 lbs. from my goal of 150 lbs.

SparkPeople has taught me a lot about nutrition and exercise. I've met some wonderful people and will be on this program for the rest of my life.

I weigh myself each Monday morning, and joining this team will me stay honest and reach goal.

Hi. My name is Trent. Was really active on SP back in 2009/2010. Lost over 25 pounds. Have gained about 15 of them back. Very frustrated that I've never been able to hit my actual goal weight of 195 (was literally less than a pound away at one point).

Weekly weigh-ins were a huge part of my success back in the day. As much as I know that other things need to change in my life to make this all work, I want to get involved with a group that is really active with a legitimate healthy focus on the weekly weigh-in. So I'm here for a season, maybe two.

Cheers!

Hi, everyone! My name is Gaye and I have been a member since October, 2008 BUT though I got HEALTHY by practicing what I learned here, I NEVER got or stayed at GOAL weight....or ANY goal weight. UNTIL....March of this year. I have been maintaining since then and am settling in to my final healthy weight of between 121-123....since then. It is going well....but I absolutely believe in being accountable most so joined this team when I saw it. I post everywhere I can for accountability!

So, I am so glad to be here!

Hi my name is Linda, I've struggles with being fat since I was 10 years old. I had a Mother that thought I had to be skinny. She had me on diet pills when I was 12 years old. I stayed on them all the way through my freshman year of high school. She wouldn't let me eat as much food as my sister did! I ate no sugar. No desserts unless it was fruit. One night I didn't eat supper, because I'd gone out after school with my boyfriend, & later I got hungry & stole a pork chop she got real mad at me! Then one day she had to take me to the Dr. & I was a sophomore in high school & I only weighed 100 lbs. & the Dr. had a fit & said to take me off the diet pills, they were only to get her through a little bit to lose about 10 lbs. She got real mad! Said she'll gain her weight back! After that I started eating anything I wanted! After my divorce from my second husband I became a diabetic 2. I was on meds. I went on WW 2 or 3 times, Nutri System 2 or 3 times then I couldn't afford either one of them. Then I found My Fitness Pal, I was on it for a while & then went on Spark in April, 2015, I thought it was December 2014. I guess I was wrong. I'm finally on the right track! Have a blessed day! lyl! emoticon emoticon

Have a blessed day!

Posting here has helped keep me accountable and has supported my process. There are many tools (Nutrition Tracker, Fitness Tracker, Weight Tracker), resources (articles, videos) and support (teams, challenges, message boards) available here.

I have taken a "slow and steady" approach and it has worked for me. Initially, I started moving because it helped relieve stress and that was my biggest need at the time. After six months of consistent movement I gravitated back to SparkPeople (I had been at Spark previously and abandoned ship) and began Nutrition Tracking and began engaging online with the SparkCommunity through teams.

Find what supports you and keep plugging away at it. You'll be glad you did!

Wishing you success in achieving your goals!

Hello to all - I have been on sparks off and on and need to stay true. My biggest obstacle is journaling my food. When I do, I stay more accountable. I have been heavy for more years then most of you have been alive. I am 5 ft 5.5 inches. I used to be 5 ft. 6 in. I now weight 231 and need to loose a total of 80 lbs. I will be happy with 50. I have MS and my legs are going fast. When I walk I use a walker and it takes me 5 min. to walk 100 ft. When I am out and about I use a wheel chair. I figure if I can't walk, I will work my arms. If I loose the weight, my arms will be like popeye's. I just need support to keep on track. Last week we had to stay in a motel for 3 days, which meant we had to eat out. I do not know how people do it. I gained the 3 lbs back that I had lost and now am starting over again. I

I am hoping you all will be there for me, and I will reciprocate.

Mom to 5 girls, 17 to 40, and grand-kids in between

Hello, everybody. I'm not brand new to this team but I am here for the first time in a very long time. In my absence, I managed to gain weight instead of losing it. But, that's also why I'm back.

I'm 5'5" and weigh a whopping 242 pounds -- my heaviest EVER! I want to get rid of 100 pounds of that, but I'll be happy if I can just drop to 199 or below by the end of 2015.

I NEED a buddy to call or e-mail me (I prefer calls) at least once per week to check on how I'm doing! I'm more than happy to return the favor.

Hi, my name is Liz, and I'm a 30 year old stay at home mom of 4 wonderful children, and married to the man of my dreams.I've struggled with weight and body image issues my since I was around 11 years old and weighed 100lbs and was told I was fat. For the longest time (throughout my teens and early adulthood) I struggled with starving myself. But then, somehow I changed that and became overweight. I've tried to lose weight over the past 4 years, but never had the drive or motivation to actually stick with it. The wake up call for me came back in April when I went to the dr for a checkup and weighed in at my heaviest (even heavier than when I was pregnant) at 195. I was tired of hating the person I saw in the mirror, I wanted to be healthier for my children. I want to be a good role model for them, and be able to run and play with them without getting so out of breath. I'm happy to say that since that day back in April I've made healthy eating changes, and lots of exercise and it has really paid off. I'm proud of the 27 pounds I've lost so far. I still have a long way to go, but this time I'm more determined and motivated than I have ever been. Oh and by the way, I'm also trying to quit smoking at the same time. That one seems to be a whole lot harder. But I'm motivated so I can, I will!

Hi! My name is Jessica, I am 31 years old and just had my wonderful son almost 8 weeks ago. I am married to the best guy in the world and love my life...except for my weight! I needed to lose some pounds before the pregnancy, then gained another 40 pounds...This is the heaviest I have ever been in my life and am looking to get back into shape. While I have never been the thin girl, I refuse to buy a whole new wardrobe so I need to fit into my clothes again! My ultimate goal is to take a shirt out of the closet and just put it on and go about my day...not try on 5 different tops and finally settle on the one that makes me look the smallest! I want to be healthy for my husband and my son and feel confident and beautiful again! I am hoping that SP will help me get there!

Started on Monday 6/15/15 with tracking food and trying to get some exercise in - 197 pounds. My first goal is 175 pounds, my pre-pregnancy weight. Ultimate goal is 150 pounds by my birthday, 11/28!

Hey everyone!

I'm Katrina. I have an 11 month old daughter and I'm married to the love of my life, so you could say I have things pretty good! The only thing I really want to change right now is my weight. I'm the heaviest I have ever been, including during my pregnancy.

This morning I weighed myself at 256 lbs.

That is a full 10 lb. gain in the last month and I can't pinpoint a reason for the increase, but I do know there is something I can do about it! I have used SparkPeople in the past but decided to start new so I wasn't constantly reminded about those past failures. My overall goal is lose about 100 lbs (to weigh about 160 lbs.) but my first goal is 50 lbs. by Christmas.

Start Date: June 18, 2015 (11 months post-pardum)
256 lbs.
6/21: 252.2 lbs. (-3.8)
1st Goal: 50 lbs. lost by Christmas 2015

Hi I am Patrice, this is the heaviest I have been and just having a hard time getting it off. I had success doing weight watchers meetings in the past and I think its because I was weighing in front of people. I think this team can help because now it helps for accountability as well as motivation. As of Monday 6/15/15 I weighed 169.8 ( I am a short so this consider obese for me).

My name is Beth. I've been a SP member for quite a while, but I have had a nasty tendency to give up easily in the past. Therefore, I have had a lot of starts and stops on SP. Well, I am back again, but this time I feel stronger than ever. I am already off to a good start. I have found that unlike in my past I have been staying consistent with my nutrition goals. I have also started taking a walk on an almost daily basis. It helps having the support on SP as well as from family. My family and long time friends actually live over 1,000 miles away from me, but we all use an Android walking app called Map My Walk that allows us to all stay in touch, compare notes, and encourage each other on despite the distance. I am hoping to draw a couple of them on here as well, because I absolutely love SP. My goal is to lose about half my weight. I've lost 5 lbs so far. I still have a long ways to go, but slow and steady wins the race.

I am a former Weight Watchers member and have been successful at losing 75-80 # since October of 2011. The majority of the weight came off in the first year and then the 5# fluctuations began. I liked the program but wasn't progressing but inertia kept me there. It was the financial aspect that finally put me over the edge. I knew the cost was too high for me to stagnate, so I came back to SparkPeople and go to a TOPS meeting for weigh ins to keep me accountable.
I love the Spark Community and the tracking of food and exercise, all the encouragement is just amazing! I have started riding a bicycle again and have logged 18 miles since Sunday. I also am a ballroom dancer, but that is another story for another day. It is great to be here.

Good evening everyone. My name is Darlene but like to be called Dar. I've been here once before a long time ago so I thought it would be nice to come back. I've been tracking my food intake and walking on the treadmill off and on but mostly walking to the stores. So far I've lost 26 pounds since I came back to Spark People and I made a deal with my Lord God if he helps me I'll do the rest and so far it's working.
I use to live in Shelton,WA but moved to Tacoma 5 yrs ago this coming Sept and love the church I'm going to and love this town. Right now I live up stairs in an apt but at the end of the month or next month I'll be moving across the building but in the same complex in a 2 bedroom apt.
I lost my husband 10 yrs ago last month but life has to go so here I am.
Take care and talk to all of you later.

This is all new to me, tracking and participating in groups. I've always tried to do this on my own, but lose and gain so it goes, hoping that this new way for me will be a lasting way. My weigh in day will be Mondays.

Thanks

I have been the member for Spark People since April and just to keep myself accountable, I joined this team. I never struggled with my weight for the most part of my life but since my son's Autism diagnose 8 years ago and dealing with it all emotionally took its toll on my body and weight. I went from my ideal weight of 142 lbs in April 2007 to 244 lbs in April 2015. I found the refuge in food well mostly junk food. During all this time, I had to energy or desire to do anything about my weight, until one night after a huge fight with my husband who made me realized that I will not be able to do anything for my family and specially my autistic son, if I die young.
When I first started to finally walk to lose weight, I couldn't walk for over 5 minutes without gasping for air and wheezing.
I have started this slow weight loss journey from April 12th, 2015 with on and of the wagon. Now I think, I need to keep myself accountable therefore joining this team.

Not new to weightloss or spark people but starting over again! I have 100 lbs to lose and would like to be more healthy, feel better, and be a better example of health to my kids. Thanks for the support and encouragement!

Hi everyone, not a new Sparker but new to this Team. I am one of those folks who start out strong, do all the right things and then slowly but surely I lose momentum, the will to keep at it, and general I'm tired of trying.

I've been on Spark for a few weeks now and was diligent with logging in, tracking food, tracking steps, mileage, exercise, water intake, etc. Now I have lost most of my energy to do this. The last few days I have noticed that I struggle just to log on, check messages, etc.

I find going grocery shopping is a really big downfall, especially if I go to Trader Joe's, there is always something there that I buy and shouldn't. I am going to start shopping at Meijer because they do have a good veggie/fruit section (sometimes) and the local Farmers Market has just opened but they can be really expensive $4 for bunch of carrots - really ? I could go to Whole Paycheck for that kind of pricing.

I'm going off track. I had surgery in March and of course couldn't exercise, walk, or anything strenuous. This leads to sitting around eating and looking at the scale, not from standing on it but by walking by it. I'm hoping that this team will produce in me the accountability that I need to stick to a plan, because someone will be watching my weight ticker. Biggest food downfalls pizza and ice cream. I am not a "fast food" person or frozen meal kind of gal. I just eat too much of whatever I am eating. I often wonder if one of those sectioned plates would work for me - I know Chinet paper plates have sections.

Well I'm looking at today as the First Day in my new weigh in challenge because I have been eating like there is no tomorrow for the last two days. Sorry this is so long.

I am determined to lose weight and am setting small goals. My current goal is to be as close to 350 pounds by my 53rd birthday (July 6) 16 down and 27 pounds to go. Don't worry, I'm realistic and recognize that I may not achieve this goal, but it is one that I have set for myself and I am striving to get as close to it as I can!

I pray to change into a better me one day at a time!

Hi all! I am new to the group, though not to Spark. I weigh in on Thursdays and this coming Thursday will be my first weigh in since rejoining Spark. I am trying not to put a number on how much weight I need to lose, but I am 5'5 and weigh 280, so you do the math!!

Good morning everyone my name is Linda, and like most people here I need to lose 100+ lbs. I weigh in on Saturday mornings however skipped last Saturday because after the week I had I knew it wasn't going to be pretty. Since then however I have gotten a treadmill in my house and it has been used every day, and I plan to continue to use it every day.

My name is Deb. I am 54 years old. I have been married to the same wonderful guy for 34 years. He is supportive of my endeavors, no matter how many times I've failed. I am a RN and I work as a nursing supervisor at a major rehabilitation hospital. I have every reason to get and keep in shape but I've used every excuse not to. I am determined this time. I will lose the weight, I will reach my goals! I am going to use all the tools SP has available and I want your help in keeping me accountable!

Hello everyone. I started Weight Watchers Feb. 22 and have lost 7 lbs. I am 5'6.5 and started at 142 lbs. I'm now at 135, and am hoping to get to 132 lbs. I've quit WW and am now using Spark People. Both systems help to track everything I eat, and to make smarter food choices.

I'm not new to Sparks and have decided to come back. I've got health issues that would benefit greatly if I were to lose over 100#. I have tried about everything over the years and have gradually gained and gained because there has been no lifestyle change. I am a type 2 diabetic with 2 other major health problems along with pain issues. I weigh 273 and accepted the notion that change will probably never happen for me because food makes me feel good. I do find that I feel better when my B/S is in control and change my thoughts about food. It doesn't last but for a few days and I'm back where I started. I weigh every day just to keep my weight "as is" because of fast weight gain and the shock when it happens. I can't afford to gain more! I need to pick a weigh-in day and make a commitment. emoticon
