i'm still here too! sounds like we're all just hanging out in other teams/boards. :)

i have only lost 10 pounds so far, but i'm admittedly not the strictest follower of the nutrition & fitness plans. still, 10 pounds is a good accomplishment, and i'll keep at it for another 10, then another!

I am still here, too! I am more of a lurker, but I am on the site everyday tracking my food and exercise, and I read a lot of different things on the site. I don't post much, but I really love Spark People! I am hoping to cross the 20 lbs GONE mark this week.

I'm still here! I don't log in every day, but I will try harder. I've been beating myself up lately because I keep making the wrong food choices. I want to try...really try, to use to the SP food tracker and the menus. My weightloss has stalled eventhough I work out. Guess I'm still eating too much or too little? IDK.......... emoticon

I'm still active but not doing as much as I should. I rarely huddle or post to the boards but I'll try to do better!

Still here! I get on Spark every day but don't do much with ANY of my teams. I joined a nutrition class at our local wellness center, so the "real world" support I get has been fantastic and honestly what I need more than via the web. We have to keep a food journal for the class, so I just print out my Nutrition Tracker reports from Spark. I have lost 14 pounds so far and 8.75 inches. Feeling great!

Still here - more reading the articles than posting and using the food tracker, but not as active on the site as I should be, and I kind of feel that my slower weight loss these past few weeks is a direct reflection of it that. The food tracker is a great tool, but it is a bit clunky. Nice checking in!

I'm active with Spark People by using the nutrition and fitness tracker as well as reading articles and blogs. I don't post very much, but I'm still here. Spark People is a great resource.

Hi, I'm active too - I love this site and lurk a lot and may not post very often but get a ton out of it as far as support and motivation.

Oh I'm still here and still LOVING it! I tell everyone I meet about SparkPeople.com - I don't know how many check it out, but I am so happy I found this site! It has really helped me get back into fitness after being away from it for over 3 years - so I'm very grateful.

I've met soo many fun people on the Spark San Diego Team and we've had a rally, shared a potluck of spark recipes - that was super fun. We're having our second rally this coming weekend. We're hiking this time around, so it should be lots of fun.

I've lost 12 lbs, 8 inches and while I still have another 9 lbs to go, I can feel myself getting fitter by the week and that counts most of all.

Another really great thing I have found from this site is friendships! I have been missing female friendships in my life and this site has helped me connect with so many people - I find it such a blessing to just be able to log on and share with people! It makes me tear up just thinking about it, but I am very very thankful to be here and don't plan on leaving any time soon.

Still active, too. I'm very active on the Let's Sparkle Together team (also with Bear). It's been a really good thing for me. Looking at 13,000+ people from my "class" can be a bit daunting, so I only peek in here once-in-awhile and don't say much.

I've really enjoyed Spark People, though. I tell most of my friends how awesome it is, and how I've been successful so far (and well on my way to reaching my goals!).

It is unfortunate that many people don't stay on, but I've seen it regularly on here. The important thing is that YOU are still on here. I have gone through hills and valleys with my weight loss (still am) along with using the tools here, but I keep trying and keep moving forward (two steps forward, one step back - you'll get there!!).

Check out other groups you may have an interest in, or start one of your own if you like. Finding a balance in your groups and your purpose for being here is important. Groups will help you succeed, as finding others with similar characteristics, goals, etc. helps motivate you.

For those who have ventured off, I can only hope they return. Sometimes it seems overwhelming to need to lose weight or change your lifestyle habits; some only look at the big picture (gotta lose 50 pounds - very overwhelming, want to lose 2 pounds this week, not so scary). Doing it in small steps gets you there. Many people don't take the time to realize it is the small steps. We can only hope they get back on and realize this.

In the mean time, I'm so glad those of you that ARE still here ARE. Struggles and motivation, you are still here and trying, and THAT will help you succeed!!

I'm here, too! I've been struggling a bit with motivation now that it's not brand new, but working through that and still going strong.

I haven't been active in any of the teams, but I'm still tracking my food and working out.


Not a tall person - start weight is overweight for me but I'm changing that with SparkPeople for my health and fitness.

I check in with this site once a day....generally find very little movement in the boards. Very early on I found this very unhelpful to me and what I need, so I started my own site. It is very active aand up to 27 members already!

This helps is support and discussions, to keep me and some others on track. I also joined a few challenges, to keep me busy as well.

We all have to find what we need to sustain us on this journey. While this was the first team I joined, I felt I needed more

I am still very active and have lost a total of 15 pounds. I found another sparks team that I am in contact with daily. This has helped a lot! I do not use the meal plans but keep within my caloric levels daily.The other sparks team has weekly challenges that keep me motivated and going

I am still active, I admit that I have modified the program to fit what works for me which has meant that I have a somewhat slower weight loss. I think you're right about it being easy to be excited early on and lose focus as you continue on. I've been lucky after I got going strong my husband has decided to join in. This has meant more modifications but so far has been very worth it to both of us.

Anyway, I apologize for the ramble, some of us are still here!

just curious about what % of people who joined during this time are still active on the site, is there any way to tell? it's common to be very gung-ho about becoming healthy during christmas & new year, i'm wondering how many of us have stuck with the program so far?

i have - and feeling great about it! normally i fade off after a few weeks myself, but this time it feels totally different, in a good way!
