Good morning, Misha. I have been offline for a few days and wanted to say welcome to the team. I am proud of your 7 pounds. Do you weigh daily, weekly or monthly? You will find topics that will give you a place to post you weight each time you weigh under the forums on the team page here. If you don't see one that fits your schedule, you can start one of your own. Let me know if you need help, I will be happy to assist. My name is Judy (SONG_OF_GRACE). I am one of the leaders of the team.

We are honored that you are here. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hello, Sparklers! I joined SP years ago when I was just married, but forgot all about it and then I got back to start fresh on October 2nd year.
Since then, as of this morning, I have lost a bit over 20 pounds and I hope to lose another 30 by April, and hopefully I'll get used to eat healthy and stay on track.
I decided to lose the weight because I started taking ballet barre classes and the less you weight, the less your feet will hurt! emoticon Joking!
All my life I was lean, but my eating habits got REALLY off track all through my 40's and I want to go back to the weight I had on my 30's and hopefully get to see my abs again, I miss them! emoticon

Hello, I stated on 10/9/17. I have always been very active so that is not a problem. My issue is poor eating habits and getting discouraged when I have set backs. Weekends are also a challenge, I let up and on Mondays my hard work on during the week takes a hit. I need to remind myself that weight loss is not linear and that as long as the trend is down I am making progress.

Slow and steady wins the race. Do the best you can.

Hi! I am Carole and have been on Spark a long time. I started back when I was trying to lose my baby weight after having my son 12 years ago. Now that I've hit my 40's it has been more difficult to lose but, mainly because my habits have changed. Getting back to exercising and tracking food again. I've been lax on exercising and eating out has increased. Need to plan better.

Good morning, My name is Trish and I've restarted my journey back to health 3 weeks ago. I've been down this path many times before and had good progress only to quit and gain it all back. So, hopefully this time is the right time for me.
I'm a busy mom of 3. I have an adult son that lives at home, and an 11 yr old daughter and 12 yr old son. I work full time as a financial consultant.
Looking forward to getting to know some people!

Hello! I am PinkGranny....and I have been tracking since July with no progress. Tracking food is one thing but I am learning it is not just the food...but exercise too. At my age I especially need more exercise! So beginning today I am going to focus more on movement.....after that I am going to work on sleep. I hope you will keep me accountable.

Hello everyone!

I am here to lose 40 lbs. again...this time, sustainably!

I've been on SparkPeople on and off since 2000. I've created this new profile to give myself a clean slate - not dwelling on the past but moving forward to my healthy life.

I am making two daily commitments to myself: #1: Journal every day, and write down everything. #2: Drink 8 glasses of water.

Please join me on the SELF Ready/Set/Sweat 28-day challenge, starting October 1:

Hello, SparkFriends! I joined SparkPeople a couple of years ago, but I really started on July 24 of this year. Since then, as of this morning, I have lost 18.5 pounds. My goals are to eat healthfully, drink lots of water, exercise, and make new friends. :) I am thoroughly enjoying the whole experience of being a part of this community. emoticon

I've been on and off (mostly off) SP since 2009. Due to some health issues, I have gained about 20 lbs this year. I had about 30 to lose before that so now I'm way off from my goal. I can do this one meal at a time.

I've been looking for a weigh in team, I didn't know this existed either. Been a member since 2009. Lost 30 lbs with SP and swore I'd never put it back on. Desk job, herniated disc, then having a baby, My weight is out of control, never been this heavy in my life. I am disgusted and want to lose all of it. I have at least 60 lbs I want to lose. In my dream world I'd lost about 80 lbs, but I want to be realistic. My first goal is to get below 200.

My name is Jennifer, I am 43 and a stay at home mom. I have struggled with my weight since I was about ten. I have had times of being thin but for the most part, the past 20 years I have spent overweight. I started my journey in March by first cutting down then eliminating Pepsi, of which I would drink sometimes three cans a day. I now drink seltzer, which I still can't believe, as I always disliked it. I actually find it really refreshing now. I started at 256 and now weigh 227. I still have a long way to go but I think I finally understand it is a journey, not a sprint. I eat decently and have cut down a lot on sugar but I still eat what I ate before, just a little less of it. My favorite thing on this journey has been the walking. Some days, my shins hurt or I feel zero momentum. Other days, I feel like I could walk forever. It has balanced my anxiety and given me a sense of empowerment. I am at a plateau after minor surgery last month. I haven't lost weight since mid July. I would like to get down to maybe 150 or 60, so I still have much work to do.

Hi! I've been a member for a while but I just joined this team today. I am hoping that being accountable for my weight and sharing it with others will help me stay on track and lose the weight that I want to lose. I am 5'2". My largest weight since I've been on Sparkpeople is
149 lbs. I am happy to tell you that as of today my weight is 144 lbs. My goal is to be under 140 lbs. The "books" say that I should weigh about 125 lbs. I don't want to weigh that little. I think I would look sickly. I have never in my life been able to lose any weight. Except for after my 3 pregnancies, I never really had a need to lose any weight. I am over 50 years old, I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and I am finding it harder and harder to maintain my weight. My problem isn't exercising. I LOVE to exercise. My problem is that my whole life I have been able to eat what I want and not gain any weight. Now that I am getting older, I am starting to gain weight after eating the foods that I love. I don't want to give up the things that I did not have to give up when I was younger. I'm having trouble balancing my weight and the things that I love( that I do not want to give up). I need help!

Hi I've been a member since 2009 but did not know this team existed until today. I weigh myself every Sunday right now. Last Sunday I reached a good weight of 178.4 which I was very happy to get to.

My lowest recorded weight is from October 2015 around 169 so I would like to reach that goal and get to 150 eventually. My BMI would be out of overweight and I would be in the normal weight! Exciting! So I have about 30 pounds to lose.

I have major depression. I have 2 daughters ages 12 and 9 that drive me crazy at times but I love them lots. I am divorced and a non-custodial parent; he has custody.

Since the end of June 2017 I have switched to a more vegetarian diet. Although not yet vegan! I have seen a difference in my stomach since then. It is less and toner! I think I was measuring my waist wrong but if I did it correctly I lost 3 inches around the middle. I did it correctly tonight and unfortunately my waist to hip ratio is 1.0 because they are the same and it says I am apple shaped and high risk.

Anyways, I do have a physical scheduled at the end of September to get some much needed blood work done for my psychiatrist and I am sure they will want to run some tests as well with the switch to a different diet.

Thank you. Hi EVERYONE!!!!

I've been around SparkPeople for quite a while and need to be more accountable. Starting weight 262 Jan 1, 2015, today 198.4, my new Short Goal is 185, my final weight Goal is 145. I'll take it 1 pound at a time for me. It might be wrong, but I don't put a time limit on my weight loss, just a short goal. When I reach that weight I give myself a new short goal. One day my short goal and my maintenance goal will be the same. Wishing everyone much success on their journey to Better Health.

Hi, I have just joined this team. I am starting this journey (again) as of June 15th. I started at 171 lbs and as of today I am 163.2 My 1st goal is 155 but my overall goal is 145 or better. I have incorporated some running on the treadmill as well as a vegetarian diet because I just couldn't seem to drop any pounds with a regular diet and nightly 2 mile walks. I wish everybody much luck and success on your journey to a healthier you!

My name is Marilyn and I want to lose 30 lbs by Christmas. I am 63 years old and a widow. I am also retired. I am only responsible for myself. I need to get serious about my health. I have a weak heart, Diabetes and Sleep Apnea. I will try to remember to post weight every Monday. I take my weight everyday because I have a tendency to retain water. I take medicine to help get rid of the water but I weigh myself to make sure the medicine is working. I have to call the doctor if I gain more than 3 or 4 lbs in one day.
My starting weight is 189.8 lbs.

Hi, I just joined this team but have been a member of SparkPeople since February 14, 2014. I need accountability so I am joining this team. I can't stop myself from eating sweets and never fill full. That is where I am and I am hoping to get past all of this before summer and start losing again. I lost down to 152 but I have put on 10 pounds. I just can't get below 160. I go back and forth from 160 to 163.

My motto is 'just keep swimming' as I just keep trotting along doing my best...Since January of this year I've lost about 5 pounds and to me I feel like saying "only 5 pounds", however, since I've gained like 50 this past year and a half then losing 5 is a big big deal and I'm happy to have lost those and kept them off. The scale does go up and down but it always goes back down. Now I'm ready to take it up a notch and really get used to eating less calories each day - like 1200-1400 and try to keep carbs and protein at 100g each. In my head I get all stressed and nervous when I'm hungry but the truth is that hunger won't kill me. I cannot starve - at the weight I'm at! - I am ready to be healthy and feel better about myself. I'd like to start incorporating a few days of swimming into my weekly fitness plan since I was a competitive swimmer back in the day and it is great exercise. My goal is to go once this up coming week. I've been walking and so I'm going to walk and also try kickboxing video as well.
p.s. I don't know how to fix my ticker...I actually started at 230 and am now at 225.2

Hi, you all sound like a motivated group so I hope you don't mind another person in your group. About me, I was at goal weight for 5 year and then stopped taking care of myself. So I have been around this weight for around three very long years. I rejoined WW as that is what works for me. I lost 1.4 this week and realized I really want to lose 47 pounds. So my weigh in is on Sunday's and my exercise will be the treadmill this week. Good luck to all and here is to a lighter week.

Welcome to the group Lisa. I think we are all surprised at some point to discover just how little we know about what we put into our bodies. I know I have been, several times.

Hello! I'm Lisa and I am 53. I have lost 81 pounds since July 2015, of which I am VERY PROUD. I was feeling a little "bored" and needed something new and refreshing to jump-start my thinking. I joined SP two weeks ago and I really like this app. It's informing and motivating. One thing I have learned since joining is I am a carb-o-holic. I love the way it breaks down your food for you into categories. Very informative. Looking forward to continuing my journey, with about 90 more pounds to go, with SP. :-)

Welcome to the group. I think we all slack off on the motivation occasionally & it can be hard to restart our engines. Congratulations on getting back to it.

Hi everyone. I am Patti and I am 57 years old. I work for the Dept of Veterans Affairs and will be retiring in 3 years. I have been with Spark People for about 11 years. I was in the habit of going to the gym at work everyday but I just have not been feeling like going down. I went to the gym this past Tuesday and did some ellipticals. I guess I need to get motivated again.

Hi Everyone. I'm Sandy. I'm 72 years old & retired from corporate life. Not sure how I used to have time for it since I don't seem to have enough time to do everything I want to do now. I've been with SP since 3 July 2010 & am the leader of 3 Spark teams - Spark St. Louis, Missourians! & Genealogy. Got out of the habit of going to the Y & find it very difficult to get back to it; however, I do have a Wii Fit which I enjoy I just received 2 new Wii exercise DVDs to try out from a friend who got rid of her Wii. I also have a number of other exercise DVDs so I have no excuse not to be exercising. This too shall pass.

Hi Everyone,

I'm Christi. I'm 56 years old and retired, which means I sit a lot more than I used to! I've been on Spark since 2010 and have had a little success with weight loss. My biggest struggles are with food, specifically pizza and pasta (and diet coke - really makes me crave carbs). Meal planning and cooking are not my strong points. I'd like to change that. I'm okay with working out, drinking water and I sleep fairly well, but I need to get the food under control. I'm open to any ideas, suggestions, shared stories, easy recipes! I'm looking forward to meeting a lot of you and keeping accountable with my weight.

Hello! My name is Kim, l'm in my 50s and l have a little over 50lbs to lose. I am self-employed, creating and painting wedding shoes and sit most of the day. I donated a kidney a little over 3 years ago to my husband and have slowly put on weight. I need to take control of this because l cannot afford to have high BP or diabetes at this point. I have lost 17 lbs since Christmas, but need to lose another 55. I appreciate the add and look forward to weighing in each week alongside all of you.

Welcome Melanie! Sounds like you have a challenging but really rewarding job. I was a bus driver for over 15 years before health problems became too much for the safety of the kids. I drove for all the schools all day but had my special ed high school students in the front of my bus for a project in integration with select students. They were wonderful really. It's one part I really miss about that job because I got to work with their parents as well with the special needs they had. One young man was on my bus until the age of 20 when he mainstreamed out and the family was just amazing. His mom was dead set on him being with the other kids as much as possible. He did not let anyone just sit there and ignore him (smile) and just was so endearing. We had to do a lot of extra work and extra time in the afternoon hours for him with the other kids but they all got to just be a friend and advocate for him.

This site is great for becoming more healthy and this team especially helps with accountability. I've done more in the past 9 weeks then I have in 5 years here; and I paid for and tried everything. You'll do great!

Hi my name is Melanie. I'm the mother of a 19 year old daughter and a 30 year old stepson. I work in a high school special education classroom where the children have various disabilities. Spark people has taught me that changing your lifestyle helps keep the weight off instead of just dieting. I've been trying by myself for years with no progress to show for it. Started Sparkpeople in 2011 and left for several years as my life was a mess. Now I'm back and ready to do this.

Have much the same as everyone else I see here. I'm 45, have a wonderful, fun family and love my chihuahuas in pretty much the same level as the family (running joke in here about who I would save first in a crisis lol). So let's see, lost 150 lbs the year I married hubby, kept off for a few years but hit a lot of stress and health problems, medication changes and migraines increasing with menopause (sorry men). Got really scared being in the hospital last time. Went from being so healthy and fit to facing surgery for both knees and other stomach issues (ulcer last issue). Felt horrible and worse felt I wasn't giving my family; especially my really wonderful husband, everything I could. They all deserve much more.

Goal here is to change my attitude from feeling like I have to appear better to feeling like I have to simply live longer and healthier. I know now I need to diet for life. I know I will lose the weight, as it's getting easier every day to feel better and eat better. And I know that when I reach my goal, I will always need to keep support and positive encouragement as well as accountability in my life every day.

That's why I'm here.

Oh, started at 294 lbs on Jan 2. Now 271 lbs. I am feeling better for sure and doing more with my family. I'm really thankful for SP.

I recently gained 30 lbs in 20 days from a medication change. I have never come close to this weight before. I'm very uncomfortable and the weight has greatly exacerbated all of my health problems (I have many). It is difficult for me to work out due to my health problems, but I plan to start small with things like walking, biking and swimming along with a diet change. I technically started tonight, so earlier today I ate horribly. My county is hosting a Mayor's Fitness and Weight-Loss Challenge. I'm participating and I hope between the support hear and peer pressure of the community challenge I'll do well.. My body is unhealthy at this weight. Here's to the beginning of a long hard road. I can't wait until I can say it was completely worth every moment.

Yo, wassup?
I'm Matthew.
My short-term goal is to lose 13 pounds by February 28, 2017 (not dangerous at my weight).
Intermediate goal is to reach 240 by June 15, 2017.
Long-term goal is to reach 180 by May 28, 2018. Hopefully, I will reach 180 and bounce back up to 220 in muscle by that May date, but to reach 190 (as I get closer to my goal, I may find 180 is detrimental to my health) is my absolute, no holds barred goal.

SW: 305 pounds
HW: 317.2 pounds
CW: 280.2 pounds
GW: 180 pounds

Remember, we do this to wake up excited, and fall asleep satisfied.
Sleep Long, Get Strong, and Keep On Keepin' On!

Hello all! Not new to spark in general but new again I guess we could say! I am Linda and I just had my 3rd and final baby on the 17th, and have vowed to take it serious this time. I started changing my eating habits last Monday and plan to start the exercise portion of the journey on the 1st, giving my body some time to recoup before hitting the ground running so to speak. I am always looking for an accountability buddy, and my door is always open so to speak! I am hoping this will help to keep me accountable at least somewhat as I start the journey yet again with a goal of losing around 90 lbs to be at my heights goal weight, but honestly at this point I would be happy to hit 200!
