I'm still here, too, but seeing the liver specialist to day. I haven't been as dedicated to the program lately as I should be. I have resolved to being more directed this year.

Have a great day, too.

Happy Sparkversary, gang! Can you believe it's been FOUR YEARS??

Still here, still plugging away. I hit goal - and then some - in 2012, and some of it has crept back on... but I'm still using SP every day, and I'm also getting a doctor's help now because of some health stuff that may be hindering me from being where I want to be.

Have a great day, all!

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.

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.

So sorry to hear about your dad emoticon
I lost my dad 3 years ago, 6 weeks after having my 2nd baby and it was a really rough time for me all the way around... one day at a time!

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.
