It's clear that everyone is thinking, and trying to head in the right direction. We're all trying to live a healthier lifestyle, for sure. Me? I've been around Spark People for a few years, and am happy that the weight has come off fairly slowly. What has come off, has stayed off, and that's what counts. For our new team members, be sure to check out the fitness and food trackers. Such valuable tools to help us on our way!

That is really a great goal - I managed to do it once before and plan on doing it again this time too.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

I can't say that your goal seems very realistic - a realistic weight loss goal is between .5 and 2 pounds a week and the 2 pounds a week is for people whose BMI is over 30. You might lose that much in that time frame but even if you could, it would not be healthy to do so. Realistically, you might possibly lose 15-20 pounds by your half marathon. I will wish you luck and I am sure that even without being down 50 pounds, you will do great in your race.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

Welcome - You can do this. The change to a vegan diet is a good step toward getting healthier. I am not sure I could go that route but I know there is a lot of research that suggests it will help.

I too would like to lose weight, 16-20 lbs in the next 8 weeks. I have just transitioned into a vegan diet/plant based diet. So i would also like to be off meds, and take at least 15 points off my cholesterol.

I would like to lose a total of 75lbs. Starting with this eight week program I hope to loss at least 20 to 25. I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in Feb and I believe if I lose the weight it well help my cure. Good blessings to everyone who is on this track.
