I am most happy, that I reached my weight goal, and that I'm feeling more healthy with all the strength training exercise, and biking and walking. For my age, my balance is much better now than when I began Sparks. emoticon emoticon

Jenna - welcome back and hang in there!

Don't compare yourself to others - we're all different and have different things going on in our lives. The important thing is that you are back and are again working hard to change your life!

Best of luck reaching your goals!

I did good the first few months and then really bad the last few! So I'm essentially back where I started in January and "started over" a couple weeks ago. I didn't gain back to where I was last summer at my highest-so I guess that's what I'm proud of...

It's depressing to see some of you who were at similar starting weights as me, have similar weight loss goals and met them or are very close when I'm still so far away. But at the same time I'm happy that so many of you have been successful and able to change your lifestyles and become healthier people...it's inspirational at the same time!

Wow, people are doing WONDERFUL! I have lost quite a lot of weight, about 65 lb. however have 30-35 left to go and it is just not budging. I wanted to ramp up my exercise in September but am having an energy crisis -- when I get home from work i am just exhausted and can't do much. Today I am hoping to get to the gym and change it up from my usual home ex. routine. I think I will try doing more in the a.m.'s before leaving home. Good luck to all of us on our goals!

I have had a rough road to get where I am today. I am most proud of myself in that I managed to get through all the bad and get back on track. I am still not where I had wanted to be at this point in time, but I will get there some day. The fact that I am still here and trying is enough for me right now. Congrats to everyone else! We are all amazing!

For me, I am proud that I am actually sticking with it... in the past, I would try something for about 3 months, not see results, and give up... however, I knew this year was bringing about Change and I knew I was (finally!) ready for it! I have lost 46#s so far... about 1/2 to my ultimate goal. I am able to shop in all stores now - not just ones limited to a Plus Size section... and even though I have had those discouraging weigh-in's or hard days with bad choices, overall - thanks to SP and all the support and tools here, it hasn't been THAT hard! This is doable... and it is working!!!

Spark On, People!

I am so thankful that I have stuck out the program. I have had a lifestyle change for four and a half months and although I am babysitting all day and working at the studios at night, I have really kept weight off (25lbs) and am beginning from square one to get off these last 15 lbs. I am choosing not to lose all the suggested weight because I am seeing I look better with a little fluff at this time in life.

We will see when I get there and I am proud to say I WILL get there with Spark People and all of the resources here. I am so proud that this is the first time I have ever stuck with a program like this!!!!

I am also very proud of all of the people I have met and gotten to know and proud of their successes and friendships! Thank you that I am able to share this with you and read what others have to say. Jerri emoticon

I am most proud of the fact that I am almost back to my pre-pregnancy weight and the fact that I have stuck to spark people for this length of time and that I'm still working out 5 to 6 days a week. Thanks to everyone for all your support!

I am proud that I have lost 50 pounds and was able to go on a very active vacation this month (hiking, kayaking, etc) and really enjoyed it! That's a first for me.

It's so cool to feel strong and healthy! emoticon

Seven months already, hard to believe. The last two months I have been away from home for most of it of entertaining company when we are at home so computer time has been very limited. My routine went out the window and it was hard to stay on track.

I am most proud of the fact that with all of it I only gained back six pounds. Normally the summers are good for fifteen to twenty so I feel that I must have sub consciously done the right things.

I am also proud that I still feel very committed and have started to go back to Stage 1 as of today and will monitor, excercise and get rid of that gain as well as the last few pounds still lingering from before.

I am not proud of anything the last few months since I havent lost anything. well I have gained, lost,gained,lost its a viscious cycle. BUT I am very proud that I can walk to the store with my son, I can play outside with him for longer periods of time. I can do a lot more now that I couldnt do before. I have only lost 17 pounds BUT that 17 pounds has made a major impact on my life! I havent been able to do the gym lately except maybe 1 time a week because my babysitter at night (my father ) has had several surgeries lately and cant babysit for me. So thats going to set me back. But I can only do what I can do!

I am still active, just been busy and not had time to spend on the computer. I have hit a plateau also, but I am going to get back into a routine of strength training. I have kept up the cardio, but been lax in other areas. Need to get back into the routine.

I am still active also, I am not losing weight right now, but I'm not gaining either! emoticon I'm starting a job as a Nursing Assistant in a Nursing Home setting so I'm sure I will get plenty of exercise there, a lot of folks have reported losing weight in that type of setting b/c you stay busy and work off what you eat for breakfast and lunch with no problem, so we'll see! emoticon
Good health to all, we can do this thing, we are worth the effort! emoticon

I guess that I am most pround that I have stuck it out and am still active on SP. I have lost about 30# so far and that is helping me with soem of the medical problems I have.

There is still so much to do and a lot farther to go but I know that I will be here for the long run.

I have meet some wonderful people here who I may not ever meet face to face but they are like family and it's is great to have this feeling of support and motivation here.

Sticking with it! Even though I've been struggling with my weight after losing 19lbs since joining sparkpeople. My diabetic med's were raised and have gained but have started to lose some back and trying to find and keep a balance because of that with exercise and diet.Staying with Spark and keep learning and growning with this most helpful and lifesaving web site tool! The support from others here on these teams helps as well.

I've been consistently active with SparkPeople, and it has paid off in so many ways. I've lost 40 pounds, gotten in better shape, decreased my pain from chronic conditions, made lots of online friends, developed a more positive attitude that has generalized to other parts of my life, and racked up 5,000 spark points! I'm so thankful that I found SparkPeople, and feel that it's made it possible to make lasting life changes.

I have been slacking some this summer but do check in. I was going to get real serious Monday....Oh, how I hate to say that! I have been stable with my weight only because I have been very active.

I've been on a bit of a plateau, and I'm proud that I'm working on losing again. I think plateaus are the hardest things to get over for me. I've lost 35, gained 15, and now I'm 5 back down, so I am working on my weight again. I hate gaining weight, I feel horrible!
