Some are 30 day groups. Sat, 23 Jul 2016 15:06:02 EST Where is my blog In the new comer challenge I made a blog. i wanted to enter something in it but now I can't find it. Can you help me? Mon, 20 Jun 2016 09:12:36 EST where are all the people? I joined the craft mamas, foodies unite, and menu planners but it seems like I'm the only one on any of these groups. Am I missing something? Mon, 13 Jun 2016 11:02:29 EST Finding the right foods I noticed immediately that I went over on fats on my first two days. Now I know that I can change my creamer for a non dairy. And maybe cut out all the cheese. And cut down on my avocado consumption but then where do I get the other nutrients that I do need? Is there a place that can tell me what will give me what I need without giving me stuff I don't need? Sun, 8 May 2016 08:02:58 EST New and hopeful My name is Linda. I am retired and finding it difficult to loose weight. I need to loose at least 50 pounds (100 would be heaven!) because the extra weight on my arthritic knees is making it difficult for me to be active and enjoy my retirement. My husband and I would like to travel and enjoy these years -- so I am determined to finally conquer this beast! I'm open to suggestions, help, recipes, anything! Fri, 6 May 2016 11:55:40 EST Hi There! Hi my name is Kesha. I'm 24 year old and I need to lose about 65-70 lbs still. I am really hoping that I can get this weight off and maybe even in the next year! <BR> <BR> I am really kind of hard on myself and I think that's both a bad thing and good thing. It's good because I really push myself but it's bad because when I'm expecting the scale to change and it doesn't it can kinda of crush my drive for a bit. <BR> <BR> Super nice because I'm ready to make the change at this point and al...

Wed, 4 May 2016 16:21:05 EST Hello Sparkpeople! I had gained over 100 lbs due to depression and agoraphobia. This is my second time joining. I had lost 60 lbs prior, but slacked off when I went back to school. I had maintained a 45 lb weight loss until last semester. I was so close to finishing my goal of becoming a lawyer until I hit a brick wall. I burned out with 22 credits left to go. Then I gained the weight I had lost back. I don't know how to feel about all of this. I am disappointed in myself, which doesn't help my self est... Wed, 4 May 2016 01:16:21 EST LOOKING TO CHANGE MY LIFE Hello Everyone, <BR> I am a new member as of today! I've never been one to "need" to eat healthy and exercise until now. My health has become a priority in my life now and I need to make some positive changes. I'm hoping this site will give me the opportunity to become a much healthier and happier version of myself. I'm not gonna lie.....I'm gonna need a lot of help and motivation. So, here's to the beginning of a new life!!!! <BR> Thanks everyone.

It'll take time but I got this. <BR> <BR> Look forward to meeting others along the way with similar goals and whatnot. Tue, 3 May 2016 11:59:04 EST Day 1: Starting Over...For real this time! <em>249</em> Two weeks ago, on May 14th, I told my husband that it was over. There was a lot of stuff going on that I never should have allowed to go on for so long. When I saw how much it really was affecting my kids, I knew it was time to quit being a pushover, and to quit being naïve and to really put my foot down and stand up for myself for once. I had fallen out of love with him a long, long time ago, but I was always feeling like I HAD to suck it up and deal with it. Then like I said,... Mon, 2 May 2016 13:15:07 EST Hello everyone....
