I'm in. I don't know if there has been an update as to where we are in this challenge, but I'm down some since 1/1/14, see my tracker! I think it's great to think about our health in honor of Rick who was trying to do the same and lost his battle. Bri

hi everyone i am new to spark and just read about rick i am so sorry for his families loss, i to am in a situation with my fiancé you see i have known this man for 35 years and have loved him just as long our lives took very different paths for a long time and a two years ago we found each other again . unfortunately we are none the same as we were 35 years ago and we both had much weight to lose. he had a condition called lymphedema of the scrotum and carried it for 6 years by the time he got the surgery done for that his weight was high as he was incapable in much activity.his male parts alone weighed 142 pounds, my self i fought on and off over the last 17 years with my weight coming out a year ago weighing 300+ pounds my fiancé is well over 500 he cant do much activity wise cause his knees are so week he can hardly walk through a store for more than 10 minutes,and that's on a good day when we get married and i get him on insurance {if i can ever get a good paying job with that benefit again} we will be pushing for bariatrics but i know the dr will tell him he has to drop some first. so here i am looking into getting us both on a diet and myself starting more excersies or something i can do while i am working as i work isotonic maybe ( i work in direct care} i myself since leaving my ex husband and moving back here to him lost over 70 pounds but i have hit a platue and have gained a few pounds back again so i need to cut my calories and keep my busy jobs going so i can continue as well as support my fiancé i will look into the challenge and get moving for rick myself if anyone has any ideas or helpful hints please send it to me as i will be lowering our calorie intake my fiancé doesnt eat "junk" foods but he does eat large portions and i am so worried he will pass before i can get him back to normal. i could use all the support i can get and if there are any groups out there helping people like my fiancé with surgeries and such please pass it on after 35 years of waiting for this man i am not ready to lose him now thank you all for reading

I've been off and on Spark People for years, and was once a somewhat active member of this group. I am so saddened to hear of Big Rick's passing...I remember him well. I made the choice today to re-dedicate myself to my weight loss journey, and this is the first post I stumbled on. I definitely want to join the challenge. I am in need of challenge and support, and this seems like a fantastic opportunity for both. To Big Rick!

Finally decided that "This Has To Stop"--

I want to join. Also, my daughter wants to join if she can. She has a sparkteen account and is very motivated to lose weight and get healthier.

Hi Genovavader,
WELCOME to Sparkpeople!:-) This challenge has been around since Ricky passed away and many have participated kind of informally. I was/am his good Friend and loved him very much and it's sure been sad to have him gone. I made a little memorial for him in a blog on my Sparkpage,
and as for a picture-there is one on "his" sparkpage-and also there are blogs he had written.
Here's a link to his page www.sparkpeople.com/mypage.asp?id=BIGRICK3

Thank you so much for caring and best wishes on your journey. Sherry

Hi, I am Linda, I am returning to Spark. I need to drop between 130-150 pounds and I find I can't do it on my own. I know it is my eating because I am burning about 2200 calories off every other day at the gym but I don't eat a healthy lifestyle mostly cuz I never had anyone who I was accountable to. So ia m wondering if I could hang out here and see how it goes? I am also hoping to find a walking/workout/accountablity partner.

For GOD is LOVE and LOVE is GOD and we are the place where GOD dwells so we carry love with us everywhere we go. Love Always, In JESUS!!

Welcome, CCSPARKLES!

This is a long journey of ups and downs. Congratulations on your choice to join us! Just remember to treat each meal as a new start. If you waver on one meal, just continue on like normal on your next. You can do this!

Hi-I'm sure someone else will explain joining a challenge here, it's really simple-but since I'm not here I'll let someone else. I just watch from time to time to see how the challenge "is" going for my Dear Friend, Rick. He passed away last August over 800 lbs, and those here are working together to lose the weight he wasn't able to as a group in his honor.
To join, simply record your loss for a given time in the following area:

I have been gone from SP for close to a year. I didn't realize that Rick passed away not very long after I met him here. My heart breaks for him and his family and all of us who could easily lose our lives if we don't get this under control. I'm in.

I would like to join in... This is my first time actually stopping by the group, I'm so glad I did. Not sure if you want to count my weight from where it is right now, or the loss I just had (9 lbs.) this past week. I weigh in on Saturdays, so I will keep you posted.

I thank you, too, Holly, and all who will participate in such a loving, moving project.
I want all to know, tho, the wonderful idea came from MCDGIRL.
And also, that it was Robert who alerted the team to Rick's plight and then so many of you flooded his inbox with encouragement and care that meant more to him than you'll ever know.
It was perfect timing and hearing from others was something he so needed. Each of you were a part of making his life easier and hope filled.
Thank you and best wishes as we participate
Sherry

Holly,
I really want to be a part of this challenge; however, I only weigh in about once a month. I have been having problems with the scale I use at my drs office...it has been taken over by evil spiritsemoticon..so I have no idea what my real weight has been for the last 2 months. What I was thinking of doing is once a month I will add my total weight loss for that time to the running tally....would that be ok?

Hi everyone..I have posted a very important challenge in the Challenges thread, and how to do it is all explained there.
Big Rick was one of our members. He passed away recently. He had 650 pounds to lose, and I am proposing we lose it for he and his family. This was suggested by his friend Sherry..and I think its a great idea.
All you need to do is post your loss every week, in a running total of all pounds lost by everyone(its all explained in the thread under challenges) Please, folks, lets do this for Rick..and his family. He was a wonderful, kind, supportive man. We can do this!!!
