Yes it is wonderful that I was contacted too! I also missed this place. It seemed something else was always more important. But I am back and it is a wonderful place. emoticon

Wow, I haven't logged on in a long time. I just got your happy 3 year message from June. Thanks! I've been missing Spark. It looks all different. Going to look around. Take care. :D

I know I'm a few days late, it's been a busy couple of weeks here-- but I wanted to say
HAPPY 2 YEAR SPARK-IVERSARY to all my fellow CLASS of 2008 Sparkers!!!

It's been 2 years since we joined Spark- where are you now? How far along are you on your journey? Do you still spark, if so, how and when?

Myself-- I've lost almost 160 lbs and gone from a size 3x to today finding out I consistently fit into size 10 jeans and pants at Land's End where I went to get a new swimsuit, so I can keep cool at my community pool down the street. The last swimsuit I bought was 1 1/2 years ago-- and I totally forgot that when I went to dig it out of storage this past week. Here we had temps in the mid-90's and my swimsuit was about 10 sizes too big! LOL-- I must say, I didn't mind it at all, except of course, it meant no swimming for me in the heat wave. :)

I have made being active an integral part of my life, so I can keep my cardio going strong-- I"ve given up the car for most of my stuff and bike and hike to most of my errands and commuting. I love to move and do it all the time now-- sitting still for a whole movie is a challenge. Boy, what a difference a spark can make, huh?

So tell me about you-- I love to share our successes!

You are not defined by your thoughts or your hopes, you are defined by your actions. In the end, what you did or didn't do will prove who you are.

I have been with SP for two years as of yesterday! I have had my very good moments and my not so good moments. I do know SP has kept me aware of what I need to do. When I get off track for a while, I soon jump back on board. My weight is not where I want it to be yet, but I am going to get there!

Hello fellow class mates of June 2008. I just found out this week that not only have I met my goal of losing 149lbs...but I SURPASSED it! I've now lost 156 lbs, much of that while here on Spark! I am also now the weight I was when I was 21!! Woot!

So, when's graduation?? :)

I did not walk yesterday. I will try it again today. We are so busy here at work that I just can't seem to find the time but I know I have to. I just want to take a 10 minute walk. How hard can that be?

Good for you Maryann, I just can't seem to get started. I plan to walk away from my desk today and go for a walk. I feel so miserable but I know I am the only one that can change me.

Stepped away for a while to deal with major life changes. However, it's nice to see my first team is still moving.

Plus -- with a new Johnny Depp movie coming out, how could I not come back!!

Lorra,
Thanks for sharing. I just want to congratulate everyone on completing one year Sparked. We all know that it just isn't easy- I'm sure the year has been filled with ups and downs, times of frustration and joy. The most important thing is that we kept getting back on track, kept believing in ourselves and our abilities. This year has been so amazing. What would I have done without sparkpeople? Although I am facing a plateau right now, I know that I am halfway to my goal. Looking forward to a great second year.


I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Philippians 4:13

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.

Hello my dear fellow classmates of June 29 - July 5th, 2008!
How is everyone doing??? It's been almost a year now since I joined spark people and I have been through quite a few ups and downs and just wanted to check in and find out where everyone else is at on their quest for a healthier perhaps slimmer self.

I have learned quite a bit in the past 11 months, have not lost the weight I would have liked when first initially starting out, but I believe on my way now.

I have met so many people here and have been inspired and moved by many of the battles, successes, and victories that people are having by staying true and committed to living life in a healthier way.
I guess this is just my time for reflection and while editing my teams I remembered that I was still apart of this one, though I do not post nearly enough!
I hope each and everyone of you is well and exactly where you should be in your leg of the journey!
Sincerely,
Lorra

Happy February Everybody!!

Well no posts since I last posted.....are all of you MIA or just busy on other boards....Hope it's the latter...

Today is the 4th and I didn't quite make my 4 lb goal this month. I did 3.5....guess I'll have to change a few things up this next month. I'm still doing great though. I post a picture and update the 4th of every month. Feb is a short month so I have some work to do.....

Take care everybody....I hope somebody stops by and posts!!

Hi Everybody!

How are you doing? We've been a quiet bunch lately....Can you believe this is the last week of January?? Where did it go. I see sun out side...that is a plus.

Has everybody been keeping up with tracking exercise and food? I think I'm going to make my 4 lb weight loss goal by Feb 4th. For those of you that don't know I post a picture and blog the 4th of every month updating my progress. My goal is to lose 4 lbs a month. It has been doable so far but as I get smaller it gets tougher....that's ok it doesn't matter how long it takes just that it is going in the right direction!!

Well I have to get off to work, just thought I would stop by and say hi and wish you a great week!!

It finally feels good to feel good. The past month has either been dealing with snow or my sinus infection or the horrible reaction I had to the antibiotics for the sinus infection.

I didn't do anything physical for month - and yesterday and today were the first days I actually got back to interval walking. It felt GREAT - even if I can tell I have some ground to make up.

It's been sunny in Oregon and great walking weather.

Hey all, I've been a bit not-here, but I HAVE been working hard. I had 3 weeks where I was sort of bleh, but now I'm back on track and doing great. I weighed in at 165 today! Extra awesome for me, because that was my weight in high school. Plus, the Wii Fit (for the first time EVER) said "That's normal" to me instead of "That's overweight." Seriously, SUCH a good feeling. Still another 15 pounds away from what should probably be my goal (I said 140 originally, but then I went and got a wedding dress at 168 and was told I could lose about 20 more pounds and still have them be able to take it in from the size 12 that I bought) but I feel like the 3 weeks off was actually a good thing to give my body a quick reset.

emoticon You arent kidding when you say the gym is really busy! Even the kids went with hubby and me tonight. One was complaining there was no bench free so she could use the weights! I just ran on the treadmill and the bike.

Good Morning all! Kim, Santa got us a Wii fit for Christmas as well and it is a blast! I think I'm addicted to super hula, the tilt tables and the step routines! I never knew my hips could move that well!

So I stepped on the scale this morning and I am just 10 pounds away from the lightest weight I have ever been in my adult life. Not that long ago it seemed so far away. Great way to start the new year!

Thanks for the good wishes with my step daughter, while it's not a perfect solution, she has chosen to go live with her Mom in CA (we're in FL) and will be leaving in a few weeks. All I do is hope we have made a postive impact on her life and that she will make the right choices along the way. Not easy to let go!

Have a wonderful day everyone!

Cari

Maryann ~ Nice to hear from you! I know how hard it is to when the weather gets cold. I use to live in So California. Weather was never a factor. I now live in the Portland, OR area (technically WA) We have been hit hard with cold weather...but If I can safely drive to the gym I'm there or just like you I do videos. I got a Wii Fit for Christmas. You how did you get so many SparkPoints since June? I'm still trying to figure out how some people can already have over 1000 points by the 4th day of the month....

Cari ~ A bank auditor....that should be quite interesting at this point in time..!! I hope it is going well and I can just imagine how stressful. Congratulations on doing well over the holidays.
Hugs to you in dealing with your Stepdaughter...I hope it works out...I wish I had some words of wisdom......

At least your weight loss plan is working.....You're doing great!

I got my 5 miles in this morning...that is my goal 6 days a week.

Have a great week everybody!!

Kim

Cold weather moving my way but I will not use this as an excuse not to exercise. I will use my videos and exercise inside or maybe I will get out and take a nice brisk walk in the cold if the sun is bright and shiny. emoticon

Hi all! I haven't been into the teams in quite some time, but wanted to let you know I have not given up! Been going through some difficulties with my oldest stepdaughter and work has been in overdrive (I'm an auditor at a bank.... good times). I'm not complaining though, I'm grateful to have a job that is keeping me frantic right now. I did really well through the holidays, even managed to lose a few more pounds.

I hope everyone had a very healthy and happy emoticon holiday! I have been thinking of you!

Thanks for the post on my sparkpage Kim! emoticon

Happy New Year everybody!!!

Anastasia asked me to be a co-leader on our team...I'm so impressed that we are still going strong. So many of the teams give up and don't participate!! We have completed 6 months on SparkPeople...that is 180 days...wow...

When I started Spark I had lost 20 lbs but was on my way to gaining it back when a friend told me about the site. Since then I have lost 65 lbs and never looked back. Although you still have to provide the motivation all the inspiration and tools you could possibly need can be found here.

We should be proud of ourselves......for sticking with it....even if that has meant starting, stopping and coming back.

If you need anything or have an idea for a new thread but want to run it by any of us first just ask...We want this to be a great place to be!!!

Have a great weekend!!

Kim

What a week!
Snowed in for over a week!
Noone in our family had done any shopping so we had a no presents Christmas.
Two and half of those days we had no power and it was COLD!
No Cable or Internet until today.
AND I am having an allergic reaction to my antibiotics. I look like I have a giant sunburn that itches!

I am SO ready for 2009!

We're a quiet group... but I have noticed that all the teams seem quieter. It's snowing here in Western Oregon and everything has come to a halt. Road are bad, schools are closed, but I am warm!!!

However, I have not completed my shopping and the weather is interferring terribly in my plans!!! Looks like I will have a window on Saturday - along with everyone else in Oregon.

Happy Wednesday!

Boy and father are off to cut down a Christmas tree. It's snowing -- well sort of - here in Oregon. Looks like we may have a "snow day" on Monday. People and schools in Oregon sort of freak at the first sight of a flake or two. Students are very excited - next week is our last week before Winter Break.

I am still nursing the cold. Today a headache -- and so haven't done much exercising. However, been pushing the herbal teas - fluids - fluids - fluids.

It's a slow start to the holidays -- but not a bad start. Will be decorating the tree later today.

Have a great Saturday!

Karen,

Sorry to hear you were down with a cold, hoping your back on the mend! Funny, I was out cold by 8:30 last night, but woke up at 3 and couldn't get back to sleep. We're having company come in tonight and a party on Saturday so I was running through that mental checklist.... hate when I do that!

Oh well, Sunday will be great for downtime!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Cari

Hi guys,

I have been MIA for the past week... I got hit with a horrible cold. Actually it wasn't that I felt awful... I was just simply exhausted. Taking a bath required a 2 hour nap afterward. I missed two days of work. Last night I went to bed at 8:30 and didn't get up this morning until 6:45.

I know we're all busy during the holidays and expect that our chats will pick up in January... but here's hoping everyone stays healthy and warm!!

Karen, that is a great line! Too funny about your dog eating your pedometer! Now it's "gently loved"!!

So I finally, finally, finally seemed to get over my plateau. I am down 3 pounds this week and I'm anxious to see if the trend continues. Sad part is that I did not do any of my normal cardio activity at all last week (kickboxing) and had 2 days of seminar food but tried to limit portions and make sensible choices. I did get lots of walking in, so maybe the change in routine was much needed to get me out of the rut.

This month is flying by, really can't believe it's almost 2 weeks to Christmas!

Hope everyone is well!

Cari

Cari -- I saw a post it note that said "Due to the economic crisis the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off." Good Luck!!

One of my other teams is the 10,000 steps and I shared this story there...Ok so first you have to know I am a teacher... and second the story is true....

The dog ate my pedometer! --- Well Chewed on!

Yesterday, I was getting ready for work, and layed the pedometer on the bed to change my clothes (after of course wearing it on my robe in the morning). Well I forgot to put it back on. That enough was upsetting - to be walking yesterday without the pedometer.

When I got home last night... hmmm the clip thinging was there but the actual pedometer was missing. I found it on the floor with tiny little PUG teeth marks. The steps had been reset and the time was hours off (am for pm)and it had 50 steps on it!!

It still works - with a few teeth marks... but alas I start over today!

Belated Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you all enjoyed yours. I kept a manual log of my food as I wasn't logging in and just plugged it all in and saw I stayed right in range without feeling that I deprived myself. Now, I have to pay attention and do more cardio as I have been slacking lately!

Happy Thanksgiving!

I've had internet issues and just an incredibly busy schedule. Small and quiet thanksgiving. Looking forward to resting and WALKING the next three days.

It's been easy to slide off track, in all areas, and stress has given me the excuse. But I am learning to be honest with myself and others... and it's not always an easy process.

I am thankful though today for many things and I hope that you and yours were blessed today.

Happy Saturday!!

It's beautiful here in Oregon. Got in a walk this morning (using podrunner intervals). I have been letting stress get to me -- not planning my meals.

However, every day is new... and the old ones have been put to rest.

Hope everyone is doing well...

Anastasia -- how are the exams going!! We're thinking of you!

Well it's turning out to be a busy November -- work - Jury Duty and the never endig battle with the plantars wart on my foot.

My scale is stuck too -- but I know why. I have been careless in food - and inconsistant in exercise. Howeveer, - the clothes are loose! and I have not put any weight back on!!

I am sure by now folks have told you to go by how you feel and your clothes. Also vary your work out if your body has gotten used to a particular routine - add intensity or length - change up the strength exercises or switch up your cardio. Little things.

Ok, so I'm not sure what is normal in losing inches, but I measure monthly and I am down 1.5 in my waist and 2 in my hips. I don't know if this is great, normal or very little, but I'm thrilled considering my scale is stuck. This makes me feel sooooo much better! emoticon

Some days it is amazing how much has changed. At one point internet access was a luxury - certainly not a necessity. Now it seems a necessity. I know that it really isn't, but it is so much a part of our lives and connection with the world and for many of us our families and friends.

The Oregon rains have set in - and I have to find a different way to walk in the rain. My 100% waterproof jacket worked great - until it dripped onto my thighs. By the end of my walk this morning both jean legs were soaked. I knew my tennis shoes would be wet - but not my jeans. Oh well... now to figure something else out.

Have a great weekend!!

Karen

Hey team, sorry to leave you practically leaderless, but I woke up this morning to no internet...and it won't be turned back on till the 20th. Fortunately I have a wireless connection, so I will try to sneak on when I can...good luck everyone and I hope to see you all real soon.

I have been away for a long time,but now i am back. I had surgery two weeks ago on my lower back. I was afraid this would throw me off track, but I am more motivated than ever. I want to exercise so bad, but I am not allowed yet. I am allowed to walk so I am going to challenge myself to walk each day now. I have to determine how much I can start with, but I must work up to three miles per day. I have been released to return to work, so I have to find my pedometer. I cannot sit for long periods of time - so walking should be a good thing and it should not be too tough for me to reach a daily goal of three miles. peace to all and I am glad to be back!

Congrats MaryAnn on graduating to the next stage! I didn't hit my goal weight when I went from 3 to 4 either, in fact I never got close to my goal weight, but I think a large part of that has to do with being pregnant.

We are getting our new car either today or tomorrow and I am so excited!! I can't wait. It's nothing fancy but it will help us out more than words can express.

How is everyone's week shaping up?

Today I moved from stage 3 to stage 4! I have not yet met my weight goal but I am getting there. I am sure that I have lost more pounds showing on spark page but I am determined not to weigh for another 2 weeks (I know this is not what is suggested) because I get a little disappointed when the scale does not agree with what my clothes are telling me emoticon .
One thing for sure is that I am not giving up. I am in for life! I want to be healthy all the days of my life.

We are the same way here, day after ThanksGiving is dedicated to Christmas decorating. Unfortunately with the small kids, we are stuck with a fake tree, so that will go up right away. The one thing I really can't wait for is seeing their eyes widen when they see the lights on again...its such an awesome moment.

We are going to KMart tomorrow to put some things on layaway for Christmas, the other great thing about KMart is there isn't as many people shopping there as opposed to WalMart.

Make sure you take pics of your place all "Christmas-e up" Kas, I would love to see how it looks.

I hate the crowds. We have a family tradition. Friday is dedicated to decorating for Christmas - light on the house - winter scene on top of the old upright piano. We won't get the tree - but will Christmas up the place.

Morning team! Glad to see everyone is doing so well. Starting to get my baking ingredients soon, so I can make a boat load of cookies for everyone else. Since ThanksGiving is right around the corner, what will everyone be doing? Is anyone brave enough to go out shopping on Black Friday?

Good for you Cari -- Glad you are feeling better - and great news about the abs... I have 3 baby mommy tummy combined with my own weight...

Walked yesterday after taking 4 days off due AGAIN to the treatment of the wart on my foot. It's barking at me this morning, but I am ignoring it.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Morning everyone, hope you all had a great Halloween and weekend. I seem to have gotten the flu and spent most of it in bed, I'm back at work today but wish I had spent one more day resting.

Thank you for the suggestions, I have been increasing my workouts so I'll try to increase the calories a bit. I have a tendency to eat the same things for breakfast so maybe I'll even work on mixing that up a bit too. I'll let you know how it goes.

One thing I am noticing is that my ab lounge is really making a difference. While I certainly don't have a six-pack, I can tell that my muscles are generally stronger and when I "suck it in" it's all over, not just the area around my ribcage (does that make sense?). Just had to share that as it's the first time ever I have felt that kind of control and firmness in those muscles.

Cari

Good Morning Team:

Had a wonderful weekend. I work medical at concerts (one of my other hats) and worked a Halloween concert that was a lot of fun. GREAT costumes. Lots of original ideas that referenced movies and popular culture. Captain Underpants - a guy with a t-shirt that said Chick Magnet with barbie stuck all over him - a couple that came as Colonel Mustard with a Rope and Mrs Peacock with a Candle stick - another as Tippy Hendrin from "THE BIRDS" with a trim little suit, cropped blond wig and black birds attacking her hair and clothing. It was a lot of fun - until the very drunk guy decided to do a handstand on the stair railing to the balcony and promptly fell over the railing. He's ok - but broke his foot.

Glad to be back home - jury duty this week.

Have a wonderful start to November!!

Karen

Happy November team!! Sorry I wasn't around much, but with Halloween yesterday I wasn't really home to use the computer and tomorrow is just as unlikely as it is our 4 year anniversary.

I've asked a number of people (higher ups) about not getting emails or notifications and they don't wanna give me an answer so I will just wait it out I guess. Hope everyone had a safe Halloween and a great weekend.

Cari - I was stuck for weeks. If you're losing inches, that's great. I swear I have the same measurements as when I started. I wouldn't think it's possible, but it's not difficult either. I would surely see inches lost as a success! The weight loss will start again. emoticon

I am having no problems with emails.

It's been an odd week - got the plantar warts treated again (nasty buggers) and so have been limping for two days and not doing cardio.

Keeping up with the water intake though. Parent Teacher conferences yesterday and today...

Have a HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!

Hang in there , Carl. I am sure the weight will start moving again. I was in that slump for a while but I started mixing it up as was suggested to you and then I lost 3 lbs.

Cari, your body may be resisting weightloss because there is no change. Try eating a few more calories and a few more minutes of workout to mix things up a little bit.

Just to let everyone know, I am not getting my spark emails again, including notifications, so I will check back now and then to see how everyone is doing.

so I am in a weight losss slump, I have not moved in 2 weeks!

I am losing inches and have been consistent with my cardio, strength training and staying in my calorie range. At first though it was TOM, but that has come and gone.

Please tell me it's because I'm gaining muscle....

I think we have the costume issue solved, father and son are going to dress as cohorts in camoflage. IMHO it would be much more interesting if I dressed to match the boy and Papa put on the glitter eyeliner to match the girls, but I seem to be alone in that idea in my house.

Hey guys, sorry I wasn't around much the past few days. We had a couple of doom and gloom days here in New York, hopefully it gets nice to take the kids out trick or treating on Halloween. I hope everyone is having a great weekend.

It's been a beautiful day here in Western Oregon. However, I had to wrestle my piece of quiche away from Marty the Pug!! I set my plate down and was logging on and he reached over ever so quietly and tried to pull it off my plate!!!

All he ended up getting was a piece of lettuce from my salad!

Hope your weekened is going well!

Dropping in to wish everyone a grand weekend. If anything is to the old saying that "It's raining cats and dogs" here in South GA then that is what is happening with us. However, it's a nice time to do my inside exercising and cuddling up with a good book! emoticon emoticon emoticon
