Good for you ChaCha for finding your way again! I know how depressing it can be to have lost so much weight only to see it come back on again. You are doing the right thing by being active and choosing the right things to eat. I'm sure this Challenge will be the right challenge for you.

Hi I am ChaCha and I lost 70lbs in 2010 with SparkPeople, well this and changing to a seasonal local diet along with biking everywhere. I gained it all back after my collision and have been slow to jump back on the horse as they say. I moved to Cali in May just before I was shipped to Liberia with Peace Corps. I was evacuated, and no I never had Ebola, and suffered depression more from my living situation and having no support system than from being evacuated. I sat around watching far too much TV and eating all day. Last month we moved, and it has been awesome. I have found myself climbing out of my slump. I thought I would join this challenge as a way to motivate me to get back into the groove before I leave again in March. I now live on a bike trail and right next to a river. I am so much happier here and have actually made some friends. So here's to motivation and activation. emoticon

Hi there! I'm back again! I've never given Sparkpeople my full attention and really done anything with it. I'm here to start again! I'm a 45 year old mom of 3 and I've recently gone back to college. Life is BUSY! lol I have about 40 lbs to lose. I hope to find lots of motivation and support here with an occasional kick in the pants if needed!

Thank you!

Hello, My name is Tammy. I have been on SparkPeople a long time ago and never was able to truly understand the community posts, even though I need the community accountability and partnership in order to meet my goals. I'm hoping I can make this all work this time.

For love and long-life. God will give me strength

Hi All. I am a redo on this challenge. I had started along time ago but then never completed the challenge. I am from Southern California. Looks like there are a good number of individuals from all across the country. My aim is to complete this challenge this time, not just start it. Am just starting today. May we all do well.

Hi and welcome to the Group! I can certainly understand the problems you are referring to. Discovering the triggers that sets off the binge eating is the first step, and figuring out what the 'good stuff' would be is another step in the right direction!

Hi everyone! Like most people I have been yo-yo dieting for most of my life. I am also a binge eater and I have realized that whenever I try to restrict it just pushes me into a binge. I am here to learn to incorporate more of the good stuff and hopefully that will help push out the bad stuff with no feelings of restriction.

Hi I'm Becky!

September 1 is my first day to begin the Challenge. I love Challenges and this is one that I think I could use for sure! So many times I've discovered that when my weight loss slows down it's because I'm not eating enough!

I just took the Portion Distortion Quiz (again..and again) and I didn't do as well as I'd hoped! I'll take it again... and again until I get it seared into my mind!

I got want to do it and do this for me. My mind is in battle and my body is at war. I'm in battle with myself and if I can over come myself than I can over come it all and do it one day at a time, let it go and get one step closer to my goal.

Hi Sally, I know how it feels when you work hard to get the weight off and then it creeps back on. Sometimes you don't even realize it. You make an error here and there and all of a sudden you realize the total effect of all the little errors and it's not good news.
The good news is that you know where you went wrong and you know how and where to make the changes, You know the rules and the foods to have. Do a little planning and tweaking and you will be back right where you want to be again.
Best wishes on your journey to recovery.

Hi, my name is Sandy. I have been a member of sparkpeople for a long time. I have lost a lot of weight and gained some back. Lately it seems that I have been on a "see food diet", you know, I see food and I eat it. It's time for the insanity to stop. I know what to do and how to do it to lose weight, I am just not doing it very well. I have the next week and a half off work and I am planning to use it to get myself back on track. I am looking forward to this challenge and learning some new tricks. And I am looking forward to making some new friends along the way.

Hi I'm Sandy 46 yrs old and i am here to lose weight and get more healthier. I am not new to spark as I been here since 2009 but took some time off and I rejoined back in March 2014. I tried s many yo yo diets and just can't find the right one for me. I know spark is and that why I came back. I want to eat more healthy and learn to love food again. My goal is to get below the 200 mark. Thanks for letting me join.

I am a Beautiful Woman in side and out, I don't have a weight problem "I have a problem with my weight"

I love making new spark friends, so please feel free to drop me a line and say hello. Keep the spark going..

Value yourself. Treat yourself respectfully and compliment yourself on what you do well just the same as you would compliment another. When you disappoint yourself, tell yourself you are not a perfect person, which makes you no different from anyone else. You will not

Hi everyone. My name is Laura. I recently had bypass surgery in March. I just finished out cardiac rehab last week. I learned a lot in cardiac rehab and I am hoping to be able to carry that over now on my own. I lost over 40 pounds while I was sick but I still have weight to lose and I need to continue to learn to eat healthier to help lower my risk for another cardiac event. I felt that this was a perfect challenge for me!

I am ready to form better eating habits. A lot of the foods I have liked in the past contain a lot of salt. I am ready to find some better choices.

Hi. I'm Liz. I joined in August at the same time I joined WW. I lost 15 lbs in the first couple of months but have been struggling ever since. Dropping out of WW as I don't think it's the best program for me. SP provides me with more information and support.

This week I began reading The Spark and it's made a huge difference to me.

Looking for ways to eat more veggies with the goal of reducing or eliminating consumption of animal products.

I'm new to the group but really excited to have found it! I'm a mommy to 3 little ones, work full time, and am about 8 weeks in to trying this whole healthy living thing again. (I had amazing results back in 2008 with Spark but somehow, life got in the way). So, here I am again. My husband and I quit smoking 3 months ago, started going to the gym 5 days a week for strength & cardio training, and now I am working on the nutritional side. It's weird, but that's the hardest part for me...I would rather work out 2-3 hours than track (and stay accountable for) what I eat. Safe to say, this hasn't been working. So here I am. emoticon

Hi! I'm Jen. I've lost 37 lbs in the last 8 months, and am hoping to lose another 40 lbs. I used to be such an "all or nothing" eater, so I strive to not be too restrictive...however I know that paying more attention to the quality and quantity of my food choices will help me lose my next 40. I am hoping this challenge will help me get there!!!

Hope to connect with others on this journey as well! Best of luck to each of us, as we make these life changes!

The best is yet to come.

Hi! I'm ALSO Terri! LOL! I am 45 years old and find it harder to lose weight now that I am "middle aged." I've got the exercise thing DOWN. It's the FOOD part that I need. And along came this group! Perfect timing!

I live in Central VA at the foothills of the blueridge mountains... I love it every day! I have two active boys -ages 12 and 8 - who love to be active. I try to get out and play with them when I can.

Looking forward to doing this thing together!

Hello! I'm Terri. This is my 2nd time at SP. I lost 66 pounds with Spark People in 2009, but allowed myself to fail.

I am back and committed. I will not allow myself to fail again. emoticon

Hi all, just joined today. I don't usually join too many challenges because I get so absorbed with taking care of my other spark teams, but just recently returned from vacation and was struggling to get back and be motivated, so thought this was a good fit. I am always trying to learn new things and like to share what has worked for me. I love SparkPeople and think it is a great tool to help us on our journey.
