I joined Spark People for motivation and to connect with others in the weight loss process, I would like to lose 50 pounds, by losing 1-2 pounds per week which I think is a reasonable goal.

I am diabetic and need to always keep my blood sugar under control. I meet with a nutritionist weekly and have my weight and measurements taken at each visit. I am also in remission from Leukemia, and got off chemotherapy in December 2013. This was my second bout with cancer (earlier testicular cancer in my early 20's), and I know that my depression contributed to my weight gain.

I made a New Year's resolution with the end of chemotherapy that I needed to take better care of myself, and to make a life-long change to both eating and exercise.

Looking forward to getting to more about this group.

My goal is to continue to lose 1-2 lbs per week until I lose another 10% body weight. I have 24 lbs left to go.

Good luck to everyone in reaching your goals and staying motivated.

Thanks SKFLUFFY7 for the encouragement! My goals are to sleep at least 6.5 hours/night, focus on five pounds at a time, and get in more cardio than last month (near zero) by doing 10 minutes /day. I have 100 pounds to lose, but I can only deal with five or I fold on maintenance behaviors.

My fitness goals for 2013 are to lose 50 lbs (I am working on my first forty sparkpeople says I should do that by October sometime). I am hoping to lose ten more by NYE :). Exercise goals are to be able to walk/jog 15 miles per week by the end of the year. I currently walk approximately 2 miles 4 times a week. I would also like to start doing some strength training for 1 hour three times per week. My ultimate goal is to lose 130 lbs total WITHOUT doing major medical intervention to help me. I would like to see my thyroid functioning a little better so I am hoping by being more physically active and eating better that will help, and also to get my bad cholesterol down just a tad, and my good cholesterol up just a tad. I am below 200 total cholesterol, however there was too much bad and on the low range of good. I also want to stay off my diet coke (I have gone from 4-6 cans a day to 1 bottle) and smoke less. By the end of 2013 I would like to be down to half a pack a day. So that is a lot of goals, but I am taking little steps at meeting them. Part of that is also spending LESS time at the computer! If I am up and active I smoke less, drink more water and less soda. So far the changes I have made have me feeling AWESOME, not feeling exhausted and sluggish and sleepy all the time! Good luck to you all!

MY name is Cynthia and I've struggled with my weight for years now. I have never been this heavy and I've spent money of fad diets, pills, and supplements. I lose weight only to gain back more, I am tired of the aches and pain, not being able to get in the clothes in my closet, not being able to get up and enjoy play time with my kids. I want to be healthy, eat right, and be able to exercise. I always start out good but when I dont see the results I give up and just quit. This time Im taking baby steps and I will not give up. I weigh 218 pound by Thanksgiving 2013 I would like to be lost @ least 20 pounds. I am learning to pay attention to everything I eat. I will not deprive myself my any food but I promise myself to eat portion size and to drink my 64 oz or more of water daily. I have statred changing my habit of the things I buy at the grocery stroe. It feels good and its evwn better when my kids are eating helathier foods

SKFLUFFY7: Welcome back. I'm new since you've been away. So glad you came back to "get back on the horse" as they say.
I have been struggling the scale for most of my adult life. I had enough when the scale hit 208 pounds. I was achy, stiff and suffered from back spasms. I'm 52 and 5'7" and "too young for this sh**". I'm a Weight Watchers Lifetime Member but I think I was having burn out and it didn't work anymore for me. (I'm a member since Jan of 1986!!) After the holiday (Christmas), I was lost, depressed and felt ugly.
I saw a post on Facebook about Sparkpeople and clicked it. The first thing I noticed is IT WAS FREE!!!!! WHAT??? FREE??? How can that be when I've been paying for Weight Watchers all these years? That got my interest. I immediately noticed how different this site was....I mean it LOOKED different....I guess what I'm trying to say is it was aesthetically pleasing to look at. This kept my interest as I also noticed how easy it was to maneuver around the site.
I didn't fully commit until March. I'm so glad I gave SP a chance to help me change. I don't feel alone. I love the videos. They give you alternatives to do geared towards your fitness level. They don't make you feel bad if you can only do 5 minutes of exercises. Sometimes that's all the time I have.
This was what I needed. I recommended it to my sister and friend.

In a nutshell, my goals for this year are: to get to and stay on a healthy plan for life. To lose weight and fit into a smaller size. To be able to be active and not be so breathless when I play with my child. To eat less and be satisfied with my healthy meal. To be more limber and less achy in my daily chores as well as an increase in my endurance. To be an inspiration to those around me who can benefit with a healthy way of living.

Falling is inevitable. The challenge is to get up and keep the end in site.

My goal is to run a 5k in March and another in April. Another goal is to do more strength training.

Overall though, my main goal is just consistency. I'm on my longest consistent workout streak ever, but it's still only been a month.

Stay on track, January I worked up to walking 2 miles a day. This will be increased in February. I have been pretty good about keeping track of my food, not so good at timely updating on the nutrition tracker. I will continue to keep track and do better at updating on the tracker.

There is a lot more for me to lose but my goal is to lose 50 pounds by June 1, I set this time frame for a family reunion. When I reach that goal I will reevaluate how I feel and start a new goal.

This is long, from my blog on 1/15:

From the hiking meetup group I'm a part of:

"This moderately strenuous hike is approxmately 8 miles RT with 2000ft of elevation gain. The Summit elevation is 3655 ft, and Kaaterskill is 22nd on the Catskill high peak elevation list. This hike is also LP's "winter" Catskill finish as well as MG's Catskill finish, so come along and join the celebration. We will be taking the southern approach from rte 16, Platte Clove Road. We will see some great views just below the summit.

Equipment: Come prepared for snow and icy trails. Bring plenty of water, snacks, lunch, snowshoes and microspikes. As we get closer to mid-March, we may not need snowshoes."

...................................


So: many people have fitness goals involving running (ie, a 5k). I'm going to make this my 1st fitness goal. The hike is toward the end of March. In many ways, it's a reward in itself. If I achieve the mini-goals for training (below) and don't achieve another set of mini-goals in order to do it, I will have made progress, and I will keep getting ready for hikes. I'm going to do my best.

To train for it, I'm going to:

1. Get out and walk for 5-10 minutes first thing in the morning.
2. Go on one short hike (30 minutes; light elevation) a week.
3. Go on a group hike with "Wandering Wednesdays" at Grafton Lakes State Park at least once every 2 weeks (these are about 2 hours long, about 3 miles, and light elevation).
4. Try to go to a yoga class and participate my best, once every 2 weeks.
5. Go to the Y and do aerobic exercise for 30+ minutes.

...for the next 4 weeks.

In order to achieve this,

1. I've enlisted a sparkbuddy, whom I will tell my goals to.
2. I've told my older son, and we've said we'd check in on my goals.
3. I will be *very* careful about hydrating---I need _much_ more than the 64oz during moderate exercise.
4. I will find a way to reward myself for reaching each of the goals each week.
5. I am fighting fatigue, and I know it's from iron deficiency, B and D vitamin deficiency; I will work at making sure to have my vitamins consistently (daily)
6. I'll use my inhaler before, during and after exercise so that I'm not in an emergency situation.


It's the exercise that's fun. The problem is the nearly-consistent CRASH afterwards from...
...not hydrating,
not enough vitamins and iron
and not having human connection.

I'm also fighting against depression,
my thyroid levels,
and other illnesses.


After 3 weeks, I'll evaluate my progress on the mini-goals, and then, at the four-week mark, create new mini-goals for reaching the big one.


This is my first time training like this. Before illness, I used to just....do all these things (hike a high peak; bike 10-20 miles). To set a goal a few months out for an exciting adventure, and to work toward it.....well, I like the idea and want to go for it.

Weight: weigh same or less at end of January as I did on Christmas Eve (62 k). Lose 1 k a month during Feb and March (to 60k), Weigh same or less at end of April as End of March, ditto end of May (60 k).(Calorie challenges in April = Easter, early May = my 70th birthday and my sister coming to stay). Lose 1 k a month in June and July. Down to 58. My aim is to weigh between 57 and 60, knowing I put on weight when I go abroad.

Aim to put on no more than 1/2 kilo a week when away from home.

Exercise: at least 20 mins a day, aim for 200 mins a week. That's a challenge, but not impossible.
Try to get out and walk 2 or 3 times a week. Not practicable in snow and ice - I damaged my knee trying that last winter.

Eating: aim to limit my portions of calorific treats when visiting. Sometimes I get permission to eat a little and take the rest home, where it does me for several days.
Wait till evening to eat calorific treats, IF my calorie intake for the day allows it.
When eating out, take a container to put what I don't eat into. (Can't do that at funeral dinners, but otherwise it's acceptable)

Health goals; 1. Control my snacking. I snack more than eat regular meals.
2. Track my food intake better.
3. Eat healthier at work. I work 10-6 have only snack machines or bring your
own. I bring in healthy food then end up snacking too.
4. Try to be more positive and accepting of myself.
5. Set more realistic weight loss goal. Strive for !0 lb weight loss per month.Long
range goal 75 lbs this year.
Fitness goals;1. Work on being consistant with exercise. Track daily.
2. Work toward more flexibility arthritic.joint disease and stiffness cause less
mobility.
3. Work on more core strenght.

Keep it simple! Every year I think about making leaps and bounds on my lifestyle and every year I go back to those same bad habits!

Believe in myself, I WILL do this!

Excercise a minimum of three times a week for at least 30 mins.
Drink my water.
Maintain my weight loss.


A day at a time and I will reach my goal. I am not perfect but I will forgive myself for the mistakes I make. Life is full of choices and sometimes we don't always make the best ones but that's what makes us human.

Cardio daily, strength training 6 days using bands, stretching/yoga daily. Have heart surgeon so I can actually keep up with my cardio and maybe get back to using weights again. Lose the weight the doctor wants me to lose before the surgery.

Im planning to put myself first once again in 2013. I did it in 2008 and lost 40 lbs. I have since put 30 of it back on and I want to get at it before I gain the rest. I'm planning to go back to tracking both food and fitness, eating 1500 calories a day with 3 days of strength training a week minimum and 4 hour long walks a week with my dog (hes already 40 lbs at 5 months old, its like pulling a truck with me hes so hyper!!! LOL) My goal is 150 by June 1st. I am gonna see how it is going results-wise for the first month before I decide how and if I have to step it up from there.
