I just flew in from 180-ville this morning. So happy to finally be here. I was pleasantly surprised to see the scale read 177.6 this morning so I have a great head start and really hope that I wont be here long.

Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.

The scale does not own me!

I'm glad to have made it back to 170ville after a long stay in the 180s. I'm hoping to not stay too very long as I have my sights set on a nice place in the 120s. emoticon

Hi Team. I weighed in at 176.5 today which is a gain, but I have been in 170-ville for several years. I'm ready to commit to faithful day by day nutrition tracking and to cheer you all on in 2016

Just joined! I will check in once a week to post on the weigh-in thread.

I started at 196 pounds in November 2014. I am working to achieve a normal BMI, and then maintain it.

I use SparkPeople trackers (nutrition, activity, weight), and belong to a couple of SparkTeams.

I had stalled in the 180s, and my weight was creeping back up. So in March 2015, I asked my doctor for help and started a 4-month weight management program that consists of weekly online lessons and daily tracking. The program recommends using the USDA Choose My Plate food plan. I am slowly changing what I eat and what I WANT to eat to conform to those guidelines. Right now, my goals are 42 grams of fat per day, 1500 calories per day, and 150 minutes of exercise per week.

I'm so happy to be in the 170s! I'm hoping my journey in 170-ville will be less than 4 months, but progress is progress, no matter how long it takes!

I am changing what I WANT to eat, not just WHAT I eat.

I'm new here. I'm excited to be in the 170s because I spent two years in the 180s. But I don't really want to stay here for 2 years. I've been inconsistent over the past two months. Went from 177 to 174; now back to 176. Looks like I might be here a while. But I'd like to start heading in the right direction again. My motivation tends to fade after 3 months of trying to be healthy, and that's where I am right now. The difference this time is I'm not going to quit. Baby steps if need be. But I want to keep moving in the right direction.

Hi, my name is Cheri and I am starting this journey at close to 179lbs. I am hoping not to be here too long but as long as I'm here I hope to meet new people and maybe make some spark friends along the way.

I've been on this team for too long..... (not that active on it though). As of today I have broken though a long plateau and am now at 171. Judging by how slow my progress has been (and the fact that I won't call myself done with the 170s until I have been steadily in the 160s for 2 weeks), I am thinking I have probably another month here. Patience is key to success.

Hi 170-villers

reaching the 170s is a milestone for me - big one - because I'm not obese anymore by BMI standards.

Having reached here - I want to continue my journey to a healthy weight.

Looking forward to getting to know you all a bit better

It has been a long, long trip, but I have finally reached 170-ville! I am so excited! This means that I am no longer in any of the "Obese" classes of the BMI Categories. I am now "Overweight"! I am not stopping here, though. I plan to keep going and will hopefully not be in 170-ville for too long!
