Hello All....member number 57 here. I am a F2F podcast listener (when I run/walk) and a Sparker since January 2010. With Sparkpeople's help I have lost, and kept off, over 100 pounds. Looking forward to learning a lot from the F2F Sparkteam!!
My goal is the same as PAULINLIM - stay under 130. I got to my goal just a couple of months ago. So far maintaining a weight is just as much work as getting to that weight. I'm the over 50 woman Russ mentioned in #146 - the one who is looking good in a bikini for the first time in my life :) I am 58 and have never been this thin or in such good shape. I've got some arthritis here and there and a bad knee that has had 2 surgeries, but I just ignore those things for the most part.
I fully believe in the F2F way of losing weight and that's how I've done it for the last 5 or 6 years. I work at muscle building with my trainer for one hour a week, I try to get in a 20 minute resistance workout once or twice a week, I walk about 15,000 steps a day (I get up from my desk at work A LOT), and I do a long hike almost every weekend. My calorie intake for maintenance is about 2200 per day. That's it - moderate exercise and a moderate diet have added up to my success, along with fairly obsessive consistency and monitoring.
current weight: 1.0 over

Heard about this team from the F2F podcast. Those podcast have helped me gain motivation to finally turn my weight loss journey around. I have about 60-70 to lose and hoping this team will help keep me on track and accountable.
I am hoping to one day be able to run an entire half marathon!
I am new to this forum - not new to SP or F2F. My goals for this year are modest compared to past years - I will be part of a team doing the American Odyssey Relay at the end of April (Gettysburgh to DC) and then I am planning to run a half marathon (trail) with ON2VICTORY. He and I have run a HM together in November.
A couple of other things about me - big fan of the show - since the age of 50 been very active (swimming, biking, runnning) - now is the time to focus on some strength and on miles - however, a job I started in November makes it more challenging because of the hours.
