Wish I could get more exercise in, but having trouble getting home from work before it is too dark to walk.

My vacation is over. I have pre-school meetings this week and next Monday, the 18th begins the new school term. Wanted to loose a couple more pounds this summer, but somewhat satisfied with the 7 pound loss.

I've been away, but I'm back and slowly getting my head back on straight after suffering a loss. It's good to be here.

Been busy this last month. Things at work making me crazy. The good thing is that I am not eating to make the craziness go away. Weather has moderated here in southeast South Dakota so will be able to walk this morning without using snowshoes or rubber boots.

I need to get back into a routine, as things have been so "fly the seat of your pants" lately. Things can only get better, right?

Woo hoo! Happy Sparkversary week, you guys!

Big congratulations to those of us who are still fighting the good fight. So many of us are trying to undo an entire lifetime of an unhealthy relationship with food, and so yeah, we're going to be in this for the long haul - maybe even the rest of our lives.

I'm very grateful for Spark as a resource... and for fine people like you who are on this journey, too. Together, we'll get through this life in the happiest, healthiest way possible.

Here's to you, and to us!

I know what you are talking about, but the weather locked us in the house until yesterday. Our club is closed due to the weather so no swimming for us. Maybe they will be open this Thursday.

You guys... we're still here, which means that we still have that "spark."

We're not perfect. Life happens.

And the thing about learning to live more healthfully is that it's not always the same game year after year. Our bodies and our minds change over time... and so we must re-learn sometmes.

But we're STILL HERE. And I think as long as we're still here, and still willing to learn, and still willing to try new things, we're going to be okay.

You can look at a setback as a failure... or you can look at it as a setup for a comeback.

I know which I'm going to choose. :)

Still here! It was a rough year, but I'm still here. :)

Can you guys believe it's been almost three years since we joined? Holy moly! In a lot of ways, it feels like just yesterday... but so many of us have come so far that it seems in other ways like a whole lifetime ago.

I've had my ups and downs this past year, both with my weight AND with my personal life (and I'm sure it's no shock that both were related to each other). However, with the support here, it's helped me a lot with getting back on track and relearning how to be healthy again... especially on the INSIDE.

Hope everyone here is doing well and still hanging tough!

I am still here and continue to be. I just got my tech coordinator to get Spark People back on my school computer, which will help me track my food which I have not been doing lately. That is not good for me. I have lost three pounds since the beginning of the month, and am determined to get back to greater participation.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. emoticon

Thanks, Mama812, I know that it was his time. He was 96, and had contracted pneumonia at the beginning of the month. He did go peacefully early Thursday morning. It was a beautiful sunrise, just the kind that he loved.

I know that he is in a much better place now, but there is still an ache in my heart.

Glad you are doing well. I think I will be struggling with eating appropriately at least for the next week or two. Daddy died yesterday. It was just the two of us left, so other than my husband there is no one to handle everything. I think I ate yesterday, but I didn't do a very good job of it.

I'm here, skulking in the background. I'm 4-6 lbs over my goal weight, but all and all, maintenance has been a good phase for me. I just need to find a new groove, now that I'm working the night shift.

I am still her but not working at it as hard as in the past. Not that I don't want to, but life is kind of tough right now. Work is just crazy and my dad has just been diagnosed with congestive heart failure--in addition to the pneumonia he picked up a week ago. Been a little difficult to get all the exercise and stuff in that I did.

Thanks for the note Hoops. Today is the last day of my second "5% 8 week challenge" I love thechallenges. A lot of activity and a lot of fun. I recommend all to do it. Monday the 23rd is the beginning of sign up for the "fall 5% 8 week challenge" The sign up is for a short while then its closed till the next one. You are put on a team of about 50 people and you compete as a team against others. Each week is a different goal like you get points fir drinking 8 glasses of water. Of course there is the exercise minutes competition and most weight loss which my team wins the weight one every week. Most people dont come close to 5% but any progress is a step forward. My update: since 07/2012 i have lost 73 pounds. Anyone have quetions sparkmail me. Glad to see some new faces her. Keep sparkin

Thanks, I'm feeling pretty good. Just need to get into my routine. Today I have a meeting in an area town, so that will kind of break the rhythm, but it will be alright.

Made it through July. Wanted to do more fitness, but I'm lucky that I didn't get any more Boo-Boos. School starts in 15 days and I need to be healthy. emoticon

I am still here (luckily), though I look like I have been through a sausage grinder.

Friday the 28th in a fit of ungracefulness I slammed my foot into my dresser and broke my little toe on the right foot.

Yesterday, knowing that walking was going to be too painful, yet, I hopped on my bike and got on the local bike trail. I had about twenty minutes in when I decided to take a short cut home. I should have stayed on the bike trail, about a mile longer but good pavement. To make a long story short I took the wrong path across some broken up sidewalk and wound up on the ground. Took the hide of my left leg right under the knee cap and sprained the right wrist. Had to walk the bike eight blocks home (4 of those uphill). Hubby straightened the fender on the bike.

I guess that the upside is that the little toe seems to be in place and is no longer painful.

I just want to get through July in one piece.

Back from a three day business meeting at a hunting/fishing resort. They fed us three meals a day, but they only had one meal--usually quite calorie laden. We were 26 miles from nowhere, so there was no way to get anything other than the food they were feeding us. Feel like I could be a balloon in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

I am still here, but May wasn't a good month for me. I injured my right heel which made even walking extremely painful. Was only able to do a minimum amount of exercise. Therefore haven't lost any weight since late April.

Sprained my wrist on Saturday, as I was helping my Dad get into the car, and his knee gave out on him (he's 95) and I caught him before he went down, but every bone in my left wrist went snap, crackle, pop. Needless to say, now I am having a horrendous time rotating my wrist. Not able to jump rope right now. Argh----------------.

Glad you are here. Hey it may actually be spring here in southeast South Dakota. Got out and did a nour of gardening. Cleaned up the patio and went to the storage locker and got the patio chairs out. Took all the yard waste out to the landfill with five minutes to spare. It has been a great day.

Woke up this morning to hear the wind howling so bad, that I would need an anchor to keep me on the sidewalk this morning. Looks like my jump rope and I will be good friends today.

Haven't checked in for a time. Time seems to be at a premium lately. Having trouble getting my exercise in which is frustrating. I know that I have to keep at it, because I'm not looking back.

I'm back again! Can't believe its been 2 years since joining Sparkpeople. I have been successful with losing weight but not with maintaining. Determined that 2013 will be my year! I plan on really using Sparkpeople a lot this year to help me with this goal.

It's a new year and coming up on our 2 year anniversary. The snow has finally come and it is hard to get the outdoor exercise in (and not worry about falling down and breaking a hip).

Doing a lot more jump rope work.

I had the worst time this summer because it was so hot and humid the types of things I did last summer would have been crazy to do. I couln't even take my pug, Bella, with me on walks because she suffers horribly in the humidity.

Tonight was beautiful and we got a two mile walk in.

Hope that people are still out there. I realize I haven't posted to this link since May, but I hope that people are continuing to work toward their goal.

I didn't get much weight off this summer, but I am recommitting myself to be more proactive with my program. I know that I can do it, if I get more focused on my goals.

I know what you are saying. I have had a tremendously busy week and I still have a lot to do before sundown!!! The good thing is that a year ago I couldn't have done this, not enough energy. My scale hasn't moved in while, but I feel great and can work circles around the "old me."

Life is so much better now that I'm routinely active and healthy - I had my physical last week and my doctor was really pleased! Of course, I don't need a doctor to tell me I'm doing fine - I can totally feel it for myself.

I'm here. I have been gone for awhile, but I have lost 30 lbs and can wear clothes and shop at stores I haven't been to in years. I zipped up a size 12 skirt last night and got teary eyed. It's been a long journey, but the pay off is good! Glad to see you all are still hanging in there !

I am still here. I have been kind of disappointed that I haven't lost the weight I did the first year, but the good thing is that I haven't gained any of what I lost, back. My clothes fit, and i feel pretty good, now that I have gotten rid of the cough that set in at the beginning of the month.

I will keep at this. It will be easier after school ends in seven weeks, to be able to devote more time to exercise.

I'm still here too and want to congratulate everyone for sticking with the life long journey we are on. This will not happen overnight. It took us a long time to put on all this extra weight - it took me 10 years. So enjoy the ride. emoticon

Great attitude, Penna. This couple of months has been tough for me. Too many things to do and not enough time to do them. I know that I am better off when I make the time to track my food and get a walk in.
