You Ladies give me so much hope. My program is going so well, but when I jump-up a couple of pounds I get a little frustrated. It is so reassuring to see that it works beyond my current stage. Thank you all!

I restarted my Spark program January 31, 2007. I never thought in a zillion years that 11 months later I'd be down 64.5 pounds! Now to get off the last 57! My goal is 135.

I joined spark first week of January of this year. I had tried to lose many times before, but no matter what I did it stayed put... spark has truly made all the difference.

Warning: I am about to be silly. I posted on the Wacky Facts thread some information that I found on another sparkpeople forum. It is an amusing way to see what we have lost in pound equivalents. I lost a calf.

Lauren, you have lost the equivalent of the fats and oils an average american eats in a year.

Cat, You have lost a small bale of hay.

If anyone else would like to track what they "lost", check out the post on the thread. Be forwarned, my adolescent 15yo boy found the one that was around 60 lbs most interesting. emoticon

Alex,
Congrats on the weight loss! I knew you were doing great with the diabetic management from the other team we are both on--I may have missed the weight loss.

Thank you! I was taking 4 pills of Glipizide and she reduced it to 1. She told me that all of the diabetes medications cause you to gain except Metformin so now it should be easier for me to lose weight. And it starts to drop off quickly!

Hi Alex, that's WONDERFUL! Boy, you must be thrilled!

I started George's Aloe Vera Juice this weekend. I'm taking it at half of the dose that they specify. I sure hope it helps, as I developed some problems after the surgery, and I'm kinda thrown by it.

I'm really glad that you're doing so well!

Take care,
Lauren

Hi all,

Since I had my diabetes meds reduced a week ago, I've dropped 5.2 lbs. My doctor said I'd start losing but I didn't think it would be so fast. I'm not complaining though...I'll take it!

I did not say I was giving up I'm just not weighing on the scale right now!

I know it's because of muscle building up.

I'm sure you know this, so this is just meant to be a gentle reminder and a hand-holding.
The weight you seem to be gaining (or keeping) is most likely muscle, which not only weighs more then fat, but burns many more calories, at rest and with exercise. Stay with us, don't give up!

I won't be doing this one. Since I've been exercising regularly, my weight on the scale has actually gone up. I know this won't last forever, but I'm not using the scale for awhile. The numbers discourage me.

233 this week (Sunday) from 233.5 last Sunday. Small, but in the right direction (and considering last weekend's indesretions, a miracle really). I hope to see that 231 I saw fleetingly last Tuesday again soon!
