I regained 30+ pounds a couple of years ago--and refused to buy bigger clothes. Thank God I was retired and didn't have to go to work since only about 3 things fit me for a while.

Good luck on getting them off!

PS: I don't wear clothes with elastic or anything that stretches; helps me stay accountable most of the time. emoticon

There are two options regarding committment - your either IN or your OUT. There is no such thing as life in-between.

A person who wants something will find a way..
A person who doesn't will find an excuse...

Welcome to the Team! You've come to the right place. As you check out the site you'll find motivation, inspiration, articles, videos, tools and friends to travel this road to a healthier lifestyle with you.

The Nutrition Tracker is my favorite tool. It shows where my calories and other nutrients are coming from. It also has recommended ranges to aid in the weight loss plan. With tracking, exercise and drinking 8 cups of water a day you've got the scope of the SP healthy lifestyle.

Take it slow and as you incorporate one new habit into your activity, then add another. That's how we become a real 'loser'!!!

Come back soon and post often. We are a team of caring and compassionate individuals who give and get support and encouragement every day. Looking forward to getting to know you better.

emoticon Welcome to the beginning of your healthy lifestyle. Diets don't work, but making small changes to the way you live does work.
emoticon Most of us are here for the long haul, so feel free to get to know us. Questions ... wonderful, that's the only way we learn. Aha moments ... share them. We love them and they even open some doors for us to get further in our journey. Rants and pity parties ... well, I guess. I will warn you though … this is a pretty upbeat bunch of people you'll be talking to.
emoticon Check out a few Spark Pages. You'll soon find some like minded people to hook up with as friends. Join a few teams. I find that the challenge team motivates me when I don’t feel like doing what I know I should.
emoticon Don’t let all the information that is here overwhelm you. Just try to make two or three small changes, and when you've got them mastered, and then move on. Before you know it, you'll be amazed at how long you been here and how far you have come!

Hi all.
Looks like summer is here and my plans to work hard all winter and be ready for the beach failed miserably. It would seem I dealt with the cold Canadian winter by.. eating! Which means, of course, that none of my summer clothes fit and I don't think I can get away with sweats much longer. :)
I have put on at least 35 pounds over the past couple of years and also, I am now dealing with arthritis. The extra pounds make moving around more difficult for sure.
I have six beautiful grandchildren who need an active Grandma so I need to get serious about getting some weight off.!
