The only problem was that I did that right before Thanksgiving. I'm was determined to maintain small portion sizes, even though I did try a bit of everything. ...

Been a member for a long time, but have had no consistency for years. Figured the best thing was just to wipe clean the slate and go for a do over. <BR> <BR> Spark put me in this group (which makes sense since I'm in the ranges)) so I figured I'd start here. Don't want to bite off too much to start so figured one group is good for now. <BR> Mon, 3 Dec 2018 13:07:40 EST Dashing December Step Challenge http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=144x11528x70521217 Welcome to the Dashing December Step Challenge! <BR> We're going to have each member just post ONE post here, and then edit it daily or weekly to update it.

I am 40 years old and looking to lose 85 lbs or so. I have lost 10 lbs so far and seem to be stuck. I am watching my calories and moving more. It is a slow process and I tend to fall back into old habits too easily. I am trying to work on this and hold myself accountable. It is nice to find a community going through the same struggles.

I'm Georgi, I've had great success with SparkPeople in the past but I've gone through several significant life changes in the past five years and my health is usually one of the first things to nose-dive when things get crazy.

I will only be 40 something for 5 more months. Yup I am hitting the big 50 this November. I live in a small town called Scranton. Scranton is located in Northeast Kansas about 20 miles south of Topeka. I got into Spark because I've decided it's time to take control of my health.

I was going to start by saying my goal was to lose 50lbs in one year, but instead, lets go for 4 lbs in a month, starting today.
