Feel ok. Gained 4 ounces and thought I'd gain more as I splurged. Got lucky so will go right back on track. No regrets.

Good!

Spark people raised my calories 2 months a go by 200. I did not notice. Yesterday I redid my weekly menu at the 200 calories less. Maybe now I will stop gaining weight.

Life continues to throw major, unexpected curve balls, but I'm hanging in there. Some days I reach for ice cream, others I do some restorative yoga, go dancing, or maybe go for a walk or a run. I've logged into SP for 6 or 7 days in a row, my longest streak of the year.

Good about 2 weeks my weight went up 5 pounds in one day, strange, as of today, down 5 pounds in one day. Hopefully my body will be back on track now. I will see in one week.

I'm back after a 2-month break, nice to see you all again!

After losing exactly 25 lbs last year, I have regained 5-6 lbs since late November. So I'm now about 22 lbs from my goal weight. But I'm feeling pretty good about my attempts to re-establish an exercise schedule and to track my food. These habits will not take root overnight, but I'm slowly starting to focus on my weight-loss goals again.

O.K. I have not gained in the past 7 days and planned my menu for February 2-5th. I am now doing 6 more days Thursday and shop Friday for 7 days. I will start adding 2 days every day to keep it accurate now,for when I shop I can print out my grocery list for 7 days after I delete the items I already have.

So excited for my first weigh in! My first week definitely had some struggles, and I did not get to the gym, but just by controlling my water, and watching calories most days, I still lost 8 pounds. I know the first week is always the easiest, especially when you have as much to lose as I do, but what a way to start week 2! emoticon

Hey team!

Out of curiosity, would you be interested in a Sparkteam about healthy drinks? Anywhere from smoothies to mocktails? If so, would you tell me? I would appreciate!

The sun has not been out in over a week. For my job today, I did a short article on the topic of the winter blues . I made up a list of how to cope with it. Good for people to print out and post where they can see it when in need.

I have some library e-books saved to review for the newspaper i volunteer for. I still do not know which I like better...paper books or e-books. Next download, I will maybe learn how to utilize my tablet instead of my laptop for reading library books. Tablets are still new to me though.

My pedometer is still working... Woo Hoo!

I made a JoAnna M. Lund dish today for dinner called "Easy Pot Spaghetti". I thought it was delicious. A housemate of mine said the pasta was "too done". For real?

My diet is going good. Slim-Fast/WW/JoAnna M. Lund Recipes. I am doing something right as my family physician is discontinuing a medicine. I simply want to get in more activity. Believe me, I know what to do. I need either a motivation board or some motivational posters. When I see the friend feed, I get so jealous. People exercise ALL DAY. How do they manage this?

Well, I am signing off for now. Be good!

I started a healthy weight loss,fitness program for 4 months with a trainer Friday and started a healthy weight loss diploma course online for free recently, so I now should be able to get some good information for my new health this year.
I have 10 pounds left to lose and feel good that I can now get back on track.I will plan my menu starting Monday along with my grocery list.exercised 1,680 minutes in 2 weeks,so it is good. I had 20 food events in 6 weeks and a few more this month because of my January 12 birthday. I get my weight,food program and exercise program reviewed by my trainer every 10 days. He did a waist to hip ratio test. You can do it online. Mine is 76 and 70-80 is good,it tells you if you have too much fat in your mid section. My B.M.I. is 24.7 and 25 is high, but, when both are considered my waist and hips are 10 inches difference so it is good.
I feel good about starting my new program and am also on the winter 5% weight loss challenge and I have a new group weight loss challenge at TOPS. So I should have a lot of support now to reach my final goal!!

Not good, it will improve soon as I have gained weight over the past 6 weeks because of 20 food celebrations, some more this month regarding my January 12 Birthday. I have lost about 45 pounds last year even with the gaining considered. I have 10 pounds to reach my goal weight.

It could be a lot better and will improve in February. I gained 4.5 pounds this month because of 15 celebrations regarding Christmas. I start the 5% weight loss challenge January 1 and the gym instructor wants us all to lose .5 pounds a week,starting January 1 and my exercise goal is 500 minutes a week. I usually do 700 minutes a week. He is sick & away the past week and January I have a lot of birthday food celebrations to go to,my Birthday is January 12th,but will continue with my exercise and plan more for the days I do not go out to eat. I will be totally on track by February 1. I have 10 pounds to lose to reach my final goal. I have exercised over 3,600 minutes this month.

Trying to focus on other things besides the number on the scale to determine progress. I started the 30 day walking challenge. Week 1 I walked 10 mins per day. Week 2 uped it to 20 mins Week 3 im at 30 mins by the end of it i will be at about 40. It has programed my body to look forward to walking

It could be better because of the holidays I will have at least 20 food celebrations,many free, between this & next month. I weigh the same as I did 2 months a go with my weight going up & down. At least I do not weigh more then 2 months a go.I will get on track February,1. The same time I did this year. I exercise 3,000 minutes a month,so that is good!
Next month my birthday is January 12. I get many free meals on my birthday & during the month of my birthday from restaurants and 3 cakes from people, not all on my birthday. You can sign up online at "birthday freebies,search it." Many U.S. restaurants will give you a cake & sing happy birthday instead of a meal, none do that where I live in Canada, a lot will provide a free meal or a credit towards a meal.
My goal starting February 1,2017 is to get my weight to 135 pounds by April 1. I have less then 10 pounds to go.

Yay I have progressed to walking 20 mins a day instead of 10. Today I managed to get in 25 mins and what helped me this time compared to my general music was watching a spark people weight loss testimony on youtube.

I am more positive than I can remember ever being about dieting and exercising. It is all finally falling into place now that I am watching what I eat just as much as exercising.

I feel fine. Of course having a temporary crown that needs tender care helps with a soft diet. Under goal and that makes me happy.

I could feel better,but I do not expect to lose any more weight till I start fresh on February 1, 2017. I have lots of free Christmas breakfast,lunch,dinners & snack occasions where I can not bring my own food and most are run by agencies or the government so I have to go. I have many free breakfasts,lunches,dinners and 2-3 cakes because of my Birthday next month. This is why I start February 1, when the extra food is over & gone!! I started my diet & exercise this year on February 1. I have about 10 pounds left to lose. If my weight is the same from December 1 till February 1, I will be happy about it.

It could be better, I have a lot of food events this month where I can not bring my own food. I do better in February. I tend to gain some weight over December and January.

I feel good! I have lost 50 pounds this year.
I do not plan to lose weight in December, as I have 15 food events to go to.
I start a new exercise program Friday with a trainer.
I plan to keep my exercise at 3,000 minutes a month.
I exercised in November for 3,000 minutes and lost 3 pounds.
I plan to not gain weight in December.
I will lose my remaining 5 pounds early next year!

Proud of myself for losing 1 lb last week...that is 25 lbs lost this year! My energy is through the roof, and the chronic hip pain only flares up briefly from time to time.

I'm feeling encouraged and hopeful. I started my most recent journey Sept. 1, 2016. I can't believe how easy it's been so far. I'm down 38 pounds and feeling better all the time.

Stay the course.

Great! This morning I ran my first 5K race in 20 months! It was a slow course, very twisty and hilly; I ran all but the really steep hills and finished at a sprint. It was by far my longest effort to date, and I feel good.

Good and bad. I lost more than 2 lbs this week, which is a lot for me these days. But high stress with little sleep or appetite is the sole reason, and that's not how I want to accomplish my goals! This week I'll be focused on finding my equilibrium once again, because that was slow, but it worked, and it sure feels a lot better.

emoticon Linda, on losing 50 lbs! And to others for successful maintenance!
