Hi I'm Dave. I've been a SparkPeople member for about a year and a half now. I joined as a location to track my food intake and exercise activities. I am slowly trying to become more involved with the other option offered by this organization. I turned 70 today and am hooked on SparkPeople for life.

Hi I'm Stacey. My weight has fluctuated since high school. As I get closer to the big 3-0 I want to get healthy and happy. My high sugar and caffeine intake leaves me irritable and anxious. I know what's it like to be healthy and how good it feels. I'm determined to get back there and maintain it. I hope that we can support each other in kicking this dreadful sugar habit.

THANKS, SINCERELY FED UP.
Hi, I'm Karen. I have 40 plus lbs. to lose but am going to go slow and make small improvements that will help me rather than burnout in three weeks. Instinctivly, I want to lose40 pounds by July but rather I would like to get into a routine exercise plan that fits into my plan and create a healthy lifestyle. I am a teacher and mother of two teenagers that keep me busy but are at a point where I can leave them to take the time for myself, no excuses. This time I am going to utilize sparkpeople the way it is meant- reaching out to others for support and giving support. I usually go at this alone and don't tell anyone what I am doing, not this time.

Day one. Went to the gym (in my building) with the intent of walking for 30 minutes. Played only fast lively music, and before I knew it, I had walked one hour; and burned 350 calories in the process. I am pooped; but definitely have a high going on. If anyone has suggestions for fast funky music could you please pass it on. Thanks. Karen.

I am a recent addition to the Spark People family. After 6 weeks I have lost 10 pounds - not too bad for the Thanksgiving season added to being on a beach vacation!! I just hope I can keep it up through Christmas. I have an additional 35 pounds to lose. This program helps keep me focused and disciplined. I've already recommended it to several friends who have be trying to lose weight.

Good morning all. This is a heck of time to start to lose weight but it will hopefully prevent weight gain. My name is Fran and I need to lose 100 pounds more I already lost 37 pounds. I go to Weight Watchers. I go to water aerobics classes 3 times a week plus what I do on my own. I think Ill try Silver Sneakers a couple of days a week. I wish every one here the best and good luck.
Hello Everyone!...It has been a long time since I visited (2010) and I have reached my goal (again). I was a yo-yo dieter but not this time. I have lost 115 lbs and have made healthy lifestyle changes that will carry me through forever. I re-enlisted on Sparkpeople for accountability and hopefully to encourage others.

for GranJerry. Look into using Nordic Walking Sticks for your journey. They help balance your movements and I found that I could walk longer and easier with them.
