I started AGAIN 3 months ago. Life often gets in the way of doing things like logging and exercising and before you know it you've skipped weeks, months, 2 whole years!

I am starting again today also. I read on just today that all the times you have started and stopped you were just practicing. Well you know practice makes perfect so I like that saying. So yes I am starting again but i will take it a little at a time and keep on practicing.

I just joined after losing about 70 pounds on my own. Love the idea of a supportive community and the articles and tips are very helpful. Losing 50 pounds is great and keeping it off is quite an accomplishment.
Welcome back!

I joined spark about two years ago. And, here I am again! I am happy to say that I didn't gain weight in my absence. I absolutely attribute that to Spark. My journey of educating myself about how I should be living my life through diet and exercise began here. I am so excited about this journey. We all have just one life to enjoy, don't we? It took me some time to realize that no one could get my butt off the chair, my foot out the door, stop the wrong foods from going in my body except me! I've lost almost 50 pounds in the past two years and have challenged myself to 20 by summer. I will do it. I am a woman on a mission and I am very determined to live the rest of my life in a wonderful way!

I am leading a healthier, happier life. There is so much live to live!!!!

Hi everyone,
I had joined spark about three years ago and did very well. Joined the biggest loser challenge teams and that helped a great deal with motivation. Most 40 labs at that time, got a bit vain and cocky as I've done many times in the past yet promised myself I would stay focused. Well, I lost my focus and I'm back, hopefully for good. emoticon

Hi my name is Kay. I joined here about 2yrs ago with friends from a craft group, we all kinda fell off, but one asked me to come back and help motivate her. I am really bad at doing stuff like this but I am going to try my best to support her and help myself!

Not really sure what new challenges may be out there for the team, but I know we once tracked monthly fitness minutes and raced other states...maybe we could get that set up again?

Hi,

Anything is possible if you believe!

Hello Everyone, My name is Theresa and I am starting again for the third time (I think). I have tried before but just couldn't stay motivated. I think that this time will be different because for the first time since gaining all the weight I am unable to do something because of my weight. I want to have a baby. I need to lose the weight for myself and my family. I look forward to getting to know everyone and hope everyone has a great day.

YETTOBE - I know how you feel! I went through a divorce, gained weight, worked hard last summer and lost it all only to get lazy over the winter. I'm back with a new realization that this is a process that takes time...wishing you all good things as you go through what I know is a tough time.

I'm starting again today. All over. New account and everything. I'm hoping to utilize the tools here much better than I have in the past, and really to hold myself accountable for everything. No more excuses. I need to get healthy.

I have started again as of yesterday! I had my thyroid removed in 2009 and it has been a long struggle ever since with my new slower metabolism having gained about 20 lbs since then. emoticon

BUT! I am re-energized and looking forward to using this wonderful resource and support system to get me back on track in obtaining my nutritional and fitness goals. emoticon

emoticon YETTOBE and emoticon back to SparkPeople and the team...Nice to have you with us on the journey to a healthier lifestyle again.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

It's not hard to eat right. It's not hard to exercise. What is hard? Breaking out of habits. It comes down to the habits we have created, what we've allowed our bodies to crave when we're sad, angry, happy, or depressed. And there is only one way to break habits: STOP.
