    I need to lose 68.8 pounds but I will get there by 12-1-15. I have to prove it to myself that I am strong enough to do so. 2 pounds a week isn't very much. - 1/9/2015 10:57:23 AM

    Need to lose 35 lbs. and it sure is a PAIN!!! Trying to organize some recipes that won't be boring is quite a challenge. I not exactly a meat eater as it tends to slow my energy down, make me feel sluggish and ill. Always been that way, weird for a Tennessee farm girl,huh...LOL. Anyway, I am looking for some good recipes to try without meat or very little WHITE meat! Red meat just puts me down to much. - 4/29/2014 1:06:09 AM
  • Feeling like I will never lose the weight. It was easier when I was younger. I am hoping that Sparkpeople will keep me motivated to eat healthy. - 4/10/2014 2:26:42 PM
  • I am going to start over again. 2 years ago I had lost 70 pounds and was well on my way to losing another 70 but I sustained a head injury which put me off exercise and work for the next year. Now I just feel as if I can't get motivated to do ANYTHING! grrr I gained back 40 pounds and want the gain to stop.

    I am hoping Sparkpeople will be a valuable tool to help me on that path. - 4/6/2014 11:37:54 AM
    Hi, Im new here I lost 30 lbs, but have put some back on, hoping u can help me, started my healthy eating habits 2 day again. Had cereal ( hot grape nuts cereal with low fat milk), this morning. lunch was a ( spinach wrap with ham , low fat cheese, mustard, water ) , snack ( frozen grapes dipped in carmel & water ) , good start I think, dinner not sure yet. I use to be 115 and I wanna get back down. so ned encouragement. I'm 212, and wanna get to 115 again. my small goal right now is 180. Smaller goals are easier. :) - 4/4/2014 7:28:29 PM
    Hi, This is my first day. Setting up my planned food intake really was a heads up when I found that good for me avocado (guacamole) and sweet potato tortilla chips would have added 2000+ calories. Oops. Maybe that is why I kept losing and gaining the same 10 pounds for the last two years. My goal is 30 pounds off from where I am at 173, by October. I think the nutrition tracker is going to really help. - 4/1/2014 11:22:40 PM
  • Thanks to each of you for your encouraging comments. To date I have lost 85 lbs; however, 4 months of doing nothing has led me several directions for help. The last 15 are the hardest to lose. Sometimes I just seem to forget there are others just like me struggling. God be with us all. - 3/31/2014 7:02:44 PM
    For me it back on sparkpeople, was off for two years cause had a eighteen hours driving so me my eating was quick fast foods, but now I am back after a couple non-fault wrecks but did damage to parts of body and the exteme weight don't help. - 3/29/2014 11:16:46 PM
    Lost 8 lbs so far in 3 weeks, on my way to the 30 lbs I would like to loose. I already feel like I am making progress. Thanks to Sparkpeople I have set some goals I beleive I can acheive. And logging food everyday has really helped me to keep the calories in control. - 3/27/2014 12:42:26 PM
