Congratulations on losing 25 pounds and setting a goal for 50 more pounds. You've taken the first small step. Now it's just a matter of becoming aware of what you're eating and logging it. It's amazing how well that works to stop you from eating something not so good for you! Add another small change in being more active. Every little bit helps. And keep adding small changes to all that. Sounds simple, right? It is...and isn't. But this site really helps. Use the SparkPoints Trackers to learn more of how to make those changes. And we're all here to help with suggestions and motivation. You will do it!

If you do what you always do, you will get what you always get. To get something different you have to do what you never did.

Hello all! I decided to give an intro as I have been assured by a few members now that I wasn't mistakenly added to a women only team LOL.

I lost 25 lbs a couple of years ago and have kept it off for the most part. It seems like I have been in a holding pattern now for 2 or 3 years. I can drop several pounds but man oh man does it come back FAST if you aren't paying close attention!!! There's more on my spark page as to how I recently ended up here.

I'm looking for friends, motivation, blunt & honest criticism and tips for success in climbing out of this plateau hole I seem to be stuck in. I have blown the last month or two as far as weight loss goes. I would really like to lose about 50 more lbs total. Vacation this year will be at the beach, and I really want to be down as much as I can before having to take my shirt off in public.

I decided to take some "before" pics for my profile so that I can remind myself how much I need to improve and so I'm not looking at myself in the mirror with a shirt on and saying "you don't look that bad" (as I suck my gut in). When I took the pics, it was hard for me not to suck my gut in - almost like a reflex LOL. And don't read this and think I have self esteem issues. I'm pretty happy in my own skin- I'd just like to have less of it and have it be a little tighter over nicely toned muscles emoticon Really though- be as brutally honest with me as you want, you're not going to hurt my feelings. I'm ready for some tough love- I need to be back on the path of consistent weight loss until I reach my goal.

Feel free to add me as a friend. Thanks to those who have already given me a warm welcome in my first thread here. emoticon
