Wow, THIS is the group that I sign on with SIX months ago? I should have been poking my head in more often. emoticon !!!

My checkup reveals that I have "lost" 6lbs. Not too bad, but I have a way to go. (better than the 10 lbs a month I was gaining!--so can I claim 66?? lol)

If you guys would have me back--I'd love to listen to your stories!

Happy "6 month" Anniversary!! My weight loss is small but I've accomplished much in the 6 months since I've joined SP.

I hired a trainer 6 months ago...I still meet with her regularly

I joined a fitness contest in November for 12 weeks and I finished

I use the nutrition tracker most days of the week

I use the fitness tracker every day I exercise

I haven't given up!!

These are all lst for me...and I just turned 61 last Thursday.

Thanks SP for providing community support,

Sandy

Hi Everyone! 6 months, WOOHOO!

In 6 months i've dropped 50 lbs, that puts my total loss now at 105.5 lbs lost.

I am 9.5 lbs away from my goal weight, but I think I might been need to lower my goal from 150 lbs to 140 lbs. It turns out I might be small boned instead of large boned like I initially thought. :-p

In the south we aren't fat, we call it big-boned.

Well, it's been six months and I'm down 8.2 lbs. It doesn't sound like much, but I'm happy with it. When I joined my first real goal was to make it through the holidays without gaining. I hovered around the 200 mark until March when I decided to get myself in gear. It's still a struggle to get the motivation for exercise, but I'm getting much better. Since mid-March I have lost 6 lbs.

I have 4 lbs to go to reach my mini-goal of 190 by April 26th. My next mini-goal is to reach 175. That will take me out of the "obese" BMI range and into "overweight".

I'm so glad we're all posting updates. It's very motivating for me. I really do need to become more active in the teams. Have a great week everyone, and keep up the good work!

Wildflower, thanks for starting this thread and giving everyone a chance to report. I reached my initial goal after 2 1/2 months, only 13 pounds but proud to have maintained it for the past 3 1/2 months thanks to SP tools.

I too can post great news...I have lost 24lbs. since joining SP and 45lbs. in total since my "quest"! I am now on my muscle building and cutting stage of my plan, in xtra small sizes, 27" extra lo-rise skinny jeans and went to the gym in shorts today for the first time my legs look so good (I go every day)

I am teetotal and smoke free once more (3 months for the former, 1 day for the latter). I've thrown my microwave away (well it broke and I didn't replace it) and so cook from scratch at all times.

I still have 5 lbs. of fat to go (mainly on my thighs and butt) and some loose skin on my bum to tighten up, but even after just 2 weeks of "leg-heavy" resistance training I am seeing a "lift" and all of the cellulite has disappearred from my thighs after daily massage of the areas implicated for the last 3 months ;-) And my co-workers are in awe!

Thank you SP for giving me the tools to be awsome at this.

OMG, you have done an amazing job. Do you have a zumba DVD you do, or do you go to class? A lot of people are doing this and just love it.

Thanks for starting this thread for the team
