    Wow! So much going on here! This is my first-ever post having just joined yesterday after hearing about the site for the first time. I am at my highest weight ever--same as my weight right before I had my son lo these 20 years ago. I've been a SAHM and he's leaving for college in 2 weeks. I was considering WW but want to try this first. My husband is crazy fit: rides his bike 10 mi to work every day and between 40-80 miles each weekend. He does all the cooking and it's pretty high-cal. My goal is to weigh less than him. Help! - 8/19/2013 1:28:19 PM

  • Hello,
    Joined before but haven't really used the site much. Thought I'd try again. Looking forward to reading SP's tips for losing, exercising, and staying positive. Wishing everyone the best in their personal goals. - 7/20/2013 11:36:16 PM

    Hi, I just joined because I started taking qsymia and I'm on my 3rd week of the first full month and it doesn't seem to be doing anything for me. I was searching for others taking qsymia when I came across this sight with some members taking it and thought maybe if I had a support group it would help. I admire everyone who has and has the power to reduce there weight. I've tried everything and I lose and gain it back. It's just an on going cycle for me. - 6/2/2013 7:33:28 PM

  • I just joined a few weeks ago and it helps me a lot to account for what I eat each day so I can change some foods when need be and being able to put my fitness time down so I can see how I am burning calories and where I need to burn more.I started out at 287 and now I,m down to 262 .I am 54 and would like to be down at least 3 pant sizes by my birthday. One step at a time is my motto. - 5/4/2013 12:53:23 AM

    New to SparkPeople but thought it would be a great tool to use in my weight loss journey. I'm also using Skinny Fiber and have lost 10 lbs with it so far. It makes me feel full so I don't overeat, but I think the tracking tools here on SparkPeople will be a plus. - 3/12/2013 4:21:22 AM
