Sorry I have been absent but I had a lot of things happen at once. I had to relocate my family from Massachusetts to West Virginia so I could become my dad's care taker. My mom passed away in January very unexpectedly. I am one year recovered from Lung Cancer surgery. I am trying to find a new balance and I really need to get back to my SPARK family.
I apologize for leaving the team high and dry.

Great to see that each day gets a little better for you. I often wonder what happened to all the people who started out with us 2 years ago. I did well for the first year, then held steady for a while, then relapsed for several months. I'm back to daily entries into the food log and try to get at least 10 minutes of movement everyday.

How is everyone doing?? I hope your plan is going as you want. Just take one day at a time. If you have obstacles do not that it overwhelm you. Take a deep breath and move forward. It will make the victory at the end even more worth while.

Sorry I have been MIA, my mother passed away unexpected in January and I returned to WV. I stayed for 3 months taking care of my ill father. I am back with my husband and son and we are moving to WV hopefully by July so I can continue taking care of my father. I am just getting back to SPARK and hope all of you are doing well.

I forgot to mention that SparkPeople want to interview me for their radio show. I was flabbergasted to say the least. I explained about my recent health situation and weight gain. We are going to do it in February or March when I am feeling better. I am so flattered. My hubby is so happy. My son said "what do they want to talk to YOU about?" I said "because of my success!!!" Kids, lol

Hello everyone!!
I just wanted to let you all know I have not forgotten about this awesome team. I am battling lung cancer, starting chemotherapy today. I feel like I have left you all down since I am not around much to help you. I am undure if the other leader is active here, I do not hear from him.
Please carry on with your healthy journey I know you are strong and smart!! Do not let the holiday temptations bring you down. Enjoy but do not go "hog-wild", lol

Please send me sparkmail or post on my page if you have questions or just need moral support!!

I want to apologize for being MIA. I have had several health issues I have been dealing with. First it was thyroid cancer in July and now it is lung cancer. I have more surgery and treatment to go. I know I have let all of you down by not being a good leader and support system. I will voluntary leave the position of leader so someone else can lead you onward and upward. You all deserve better!!! I wish everyone the best!!!

Interesting to check in with this team sight one year later. I was faithfully Sparkin' daily until mid-May, then stopped for a while. I decided today that I needed to get back into the discipline of logging in and charting my food every day since I've been creeping up a bit on the scales. Glad to see that there are still a few people checking in on this sight. I'm signing up today for 16 weeks, 12 pounds. Hoping that the more I say it out loud, the stronger my resolve will be.

I changed the symbol that appears with my posts to the 1 year anniversary badge..which we should all do since that is the purpose of this group. I think I began on the 17th or 18th, and today is the 23rd, but I still want to celebrate. I have been doing well enough, but I can amp it up a bit. I have lost between 19 and 21 pounds...I usually do this...I lose and gain a range of 5 pounds as I plateau in that range. Last time I plateaued like this was a good 5 - 7 pounds ago. I have gone back to Curves 2x a week. Once the school year starts, I hope to go three times a week o the way home form work. RIght now I am starting slow to make this goal a reality and to do more at home because if I don't go out, I save gas and money, so I go to Curves on days I plan to be out since it is out of the way unless I am in that part of town which is on my way home from the school at which I teach. I am detoxing for 9 months to renew my liver. I am getting off as many meds as possible. I have the support of my husband who has lost 62 pounds. I am so psyched to continue another year and many more after that! emoticon emoticonemoticon

Happy July 4th everyone!!!
We are keeping low key. I think once everyone is showered we are going to PetCo to add more fish to our son's fish tank. We acquired a 20 gallon tank from family so it is a work in progress. We are grilling at home also later. I will hope to get some reading time eventually. My son and I will do some exercises at home, he needs to practice jumping rope like boxers because they do that in his karate class.

My weight is down 25 pounds and hovering. Now, I am way more focused on strength and health - water walking, water aerobics - and healthy eating. This time of the year is CRAZY in my job, so not having another "goal"/"deadline"/"self-stressor" to focus on is critical for my mental health.

I fell off the healthy wagon last month. I returned to my old eating and drinking patterns and stopped exercising. My plan is to get back on this month.

I backslid a little bit. I have gained 3 lbs in the past month. I haven't been exercising, eating, or drinking water the way I should. Needless to say I went back to old patterns. Today I decided to start over and do the things that are healthy for me. Hopeful I can be back on track soon.

I had my physical this week, had not seen my PCP for a couple years. They did an EKG and it was abnormal so now I have to under go a stress test. Until that is over I am not allowed to exercise.......and boy do I feel odd not exercising!!!

Don't you hate when the scale plays the YO YO with us!!! Glad it is improving.

Got off-track in the fall with family challenges and job challenges. Going to weigh & measure & get back to tracking daily. And, my guy finally realized that if he sabotages my efforts, I tend to quit. Then, we both discover that I am a happier person, with a more positive outlook on life when I eat right & get my exercise. :) Right now, he is out shopping for healthy food while I am home sick. Gotta have my whole team on board, and I finally do.

and you will grow stronger until you have accomplished a purpose...

Started back in January heavier than when I left several months before. I am slowly losing weight. I have lost about 1 lb per week. I am going to the gym twice a week and trying to at least walk daily.

Elaine...I hope you are enjoying the journey even through the ups and downs. Good luck to you to hold strong and get moving forward one step at a time.

My hubby and I are doing the juicing reboot plan. A new way of getting veggies and fruits into the meals....and making the body healthier.

I took a break for several months. Gained the weight I losted and a little more. Came back Jan 1st and have been making progress. When I started it was after the 1st anniversary of losing my son and had some emotional issues to still deal with. Now that I am feeling better I can focus my attention on my health and weight and not get distracted.

Thanks! Staying strong no matter what is sooooooooo important! Everyone has plateaus, or bad days, or goes through hard stuff. You just have to pick yourself back up and keep going.

Hello everyone!

I feel like I am doing really well. I think I hit a bit of a plateau after Christmas, but I switched up my exercise/WT routine (it was due to be changed anyway) and have been following my nutrition tracker more faithfully. I have been working to make sure I drink my 8 cups of water a day, and I'm working this week on eating healthier snacks and fruits/vegetables. Last week I lost 2.4 lbs!!! I'm really looking forward to Sunday because that's my 6 month Sparkversary.

I dont' remember a whole lot of what happened the first 10 days of January. I was more depressed than usual and letting work and home life get under...some days it was just hard to care.

But since the 11th I have gotten up every morning and exercised 20-30 minutes! I am feeling better and moving along.

It took me a little longer than I expected to get back in the groove, but I think I'm finally back in the "eat healthy/exercise" mode. Getting off track for a while was a good wake-up call for me to see how easily I can go astray. Will need to get better at making this a true lifestyle change.

I actually lost a pound despite the holidays! We had a non-traditional Christmas meal and I worked a lot of extra hours...that must have helped.

Well, so I probably should belong to a New Year's resolution team since I haven't really participated on this one. I kind of fizzled last summer. I'm here now though! It's really inspiring to see those that have stuck to the program and how your lives have changed. My aha moment is; that it's the journey itself that changes us, not the actual event. Where will I be in 7 months if I stick to the program? I can't wait to see.

I did so much better than I expected during the Thanksgiving - Christmas season until....last week. Wow! It was totally back to my old "sweets" days. I think we're about done with all of the family and friend parties and munchies, so I'm very much looking forward to getting back on track and starting with the new "12 more pounds" goal. Happy NEW Year!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!!!

Just a reminder to enjoy the holiday and family time but try to plan ahead so you do not go too far off your plan. If possible do some extra fitness to counterbalance eating off plan.
Important part is to ENJOY the family time.....don't overthink it too much.

Congrats, MZNICOLEG. That seems pretty rapid for how light you already were to begin with. What did it for you? Are you able to maintain?

Unfortunately, I've only gained since July. I'm recommitting by joining the Seasonal Accountability Challenge for a kickstart.

MZNICOLE - Wow!! 30 Pounds is terrific - and very inspiring. I started about the same time and I finally hit 15 pounds today. You give me hope that I can speed up my weight loss a little bit during the next few weeks if I improve on the exercise part.

My husband and I each got to the 12-pounds lost mark this week. Without knowing that "we" were eating healthier, he sprinted out ahead of me at first. Now that we are in the same place and now that he's aware of the intent, I expect him to move ahead a little faster. Since starting in July, this does seem so very slow, but since it's the first time in at least 10 years that I've been able to lose more than 5 pounds - instead of gaining 5 pounds, I'm thrilled and still motivated to keep on going for the next 12.

Haven't been around for a while, been really busy around my house. I have managed to lose 17 pounds so far, since coming back to Spark People in July. It's been slow, sometimes I wish I could lose the weight faster. Now that summer is over and fall is upon us, I should be posting a lot more. Have a great day everybody.

I think I've finally hit the "safe" 10 pounds mark....the scale says 11 but I know it will bobble up and down a bit. I know we aren't supposed to measure our success by the scale, but since I'm a numbers person by nature, I can't help myself! My clothes are fitting better and I still feel motivated enough to avoid most major danger zones related to bad eating habits. This has really been a new experience for me to eat responsibly for an extended period of time.

I've been doing well, these last two months...though I have to say I never feel ready to move up to the next stage. I recently moved from stage two to stage three and all I could think was '...really? Am I really ready? Did I really learn stage two? Did I change?'. I think I'll have to always be pretty vigilant about tracking calories and fitness minutes because I really don't feel like I've changed so much despite the steady weight loss.

I think that I'm going to revist the stages and kidn of do them in tandem with stage three. Or maybe start over in stage four.

You live in an eternity.
Be happy today.

I've resumed exercise this week and lost 3lbs! I added an additional day of strength training and that seemed to help tremendously. I'm so proud of myself for not giving up!emoticon
