Just checking in. Still maintaining, but considering losing another 10.

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.

Two of the people on the list seem to be typos, but both have been inactive for quite some time as far as I know. SOSAYSTARA and MERRY_XMAS are both people I was friends with who have disappeared.

I've tried a couple of people that are on my friends list, but without success. I wish people would at least say something before they just disappear. emoticon

Does anyone know someone named FTERPAULA who reached goal on 8/21/2011 and lost 108 lbs?

Someone entered this name on the maintenance anniversary list and it doesn't exist on SparkPeople.com so I suspect it is a typo.

-------

Also, here is the current list of folks who either didn't have a Spark ID or stopped checking in on the maintenance anniversary list - if anyone knows them personally, maybe it could help to send a gentle message and ask if everything is ok.

docs.google.com/spreadsheet/pub?key=

h4KrA4GkhKgdGdfWV9FM1VjMmdrQk1CWnFVSR>jAtSUE&single=true&gid=2&output=html


(about once a month I email all the people on the list who are getting close to needing to renew their data or whose data have already expired past a year - the people on this list haven't responded and so were archived)

Never, ever, EVER give up!

From BMI 53 (336 lbs) to under 30. Now aiming for less than 20% body fat.

Thanks!

Hopefully we'll hear from her or someone who knows her - usually when I search for contributions to the site I'll pick up comments on blogs & message boards, but not this time...

Does anyone know "NANCY2012"?

Someone put an entry for that name into the Hall of Fame / Maintenance Anniversaries list, but there doesn't seem to be anyone on SparkPeople.com by that name - no Spark page, and no sign of any contributions anywhere on the site. I want to make sure this user really exists before adding the name.

Here are the details:

Date/time entered:
8/31/2013 9:32:21

Reached goal:
7/2/2011

Spark ID:
nancy2012

lbs lost:
70

Thanks in advance for any information you guys have!

Thanks again, you guys, for your help with this.

One other thing that could help, if anyone has a spare moment, is to browse some of the names on the list to see if they still have Spark IDs. When I sent a renewal reminder out today I found out that JULIA-JULIE is no longer on Spark People.

So if you happen to come across something like that, please let me know! Thanks!

Here's a list of the ones that appear not to have a Spark ID:

BULBS
MILEHI52`
JULIA-JULIE
NICOLEVAR5886
SOSAYSRARA
ABBETG22
KATEANDDRACO
MARY_XMAS
VANANDEL
LGREEN521

If you happen to know any of them, and if you know they've changed their ID, please let me know - thanks!!!

I agree! I recently contacted a SparkBuddy who I hadn't heard from in a while and she admitted that she had, in fact, been slipping. She thanked me for reaching out and said that my concern inspired her to get back on track and recommit to her goals. I understand the desire to pull away when you're not doing well, I've done it too, but sometimes a caring helping hand can help get you out of your funk and make you realize that you can get back to it even if you've undone much or all of your progress. It seems that it's often when we need help the most that we don't ask for it and I think a caring message or two can make a difference.

Good call on DEBBYFROMMT. That was her and we've got it sorted out now. :-)

Indeed, when slipping often the last thing we want to do is reach out. It's so painful and humiliating. Most of us have been there many times, ourselves. I want to be very clear that there is no judgement here, only concern.

And sometimes a hand from a friend at that point can help pull us out of the spiral. That is why I suggested a gentle contact if you already know someone on the list and have a personal connection with them.

A lot of people who slip don't want to be reminded of it by seeing people who are still able to do what they weren't. I don't judge. Hopefully they'll be back someday.

I'm afraid VADAVICTORIA may have left us. She's a SparkFriend of mine and we used to be in touch, but it's been several months since I last heard from her. She also didn't acknowledge her one-year maintenance anniversary, which I think she would have been enthusiastic about celebrating if she were on track. I hope I'm wrong, but I have a bad feeling that she's fallen off the wagon.

Hi Everyone,

This is such a supportive community, I thought I'd put a call out for some help.

Most of you know about our Maintenance Anniversaries list
docs.google.com/forms/d/1eQoYlctQfXA
rC
Gv3qKYX8rW6o-ODNA2eLr4YVeFtUwc/viewform


which also doubles as our Hall of Fame

I love watching people celebrate their maintenance anniversaries because every year of maintenance means another year of learning, refining, and practicing the skills that help us keep the weight off for good. As you accrue more years of maintenance, your chances of regaining decrease, according to the studies.

The flip side, however, is that sometimes people don't maintain, or they stop checking in for some other reason. In order to keep our list current, everyone on it has to update his/her information once a year.

Sadly, there are some people who either do not have a Spark ID that exists, or they have stopped checking in. The list of these folks is here:
docs.google.com/spreadsheet/pub?key=
0A
h4KrA4GkhKgdGdfWV9FM1VjMmdrQk1CWnFVSR>jAtSUE&single=true&gid=2&output=html


Before people go inactive on the list and every month after they go inactive I send a Spark email asking them to update their information and come back. Some of you may have seen such a message, over the past year or so.

If you have time, perhaps you can browse the list of inactive maintainers, and if you know anyone on it, could you gently ask them if they're doing OK and whether they need help, or support? While it is always possible they've moved on to other pursuits, there's always the worrying possibility that they've stumbled and need some extra help. Maybe if they know you they'll respond where they haven't to my messages...

Thanks so much. emoticon

Here's the link again for updating information on that list:
