I'm looking forward to smaller pants sizes. Hopefully by summer I can get into a 12. But if I don't I won't be too hard on myself. I'm losing weight again. So hopefully I can break that 200 mark by mid April. Then I will mark another goal for the next 50.

emoticon

Initial Goals:
1. Get back into my previous weight loss jeans.

2. Meet my fiber requirements 5 days a week.

Now that I am finally exercising for the first time in 23 years I have decided to set these weekly exercise goals.

1. Walk or go to the gym 3 - 4 days a week.
2. Strength training 2 - 3 times a week

Can you believe it's been a whole year?? I've benefited from it more ways than I can count. I've been pretty darn consistent the whole year, and it's paid off. I haven't reached my goal weight yet, but feel so much better and quite proud of my progress. Most of all, I've learned such a lot about weight loss and support....silly me, after 40 years of dieting, and 15 years of being a psychotherapist I thought I knew it all! How arrogant....eh?

Anyway, I want to pass on a piece of info. If you aren't a member of the "Done Being the Fat Girl" team, consider joining. (Men are also welcome, in spite of the name.) This month I've been a part of their Buddy Support System challenge, and it's been fun and motivational. I'm on a team of 10 folks, competing against about 15 other teams of 10 for points we earn for different healthy goals each week. It's shaken up my approach, and I've already lost 4 more pounds this month.

If you want to get involved for the February challenge, join the team and when you see the email for the February BSS (Buddy Support System) - sign up and let them know that you joined because of me:
LPCPRO - a Royal Ruby! That way I get more points!

Thanks, and have a great year. Use this website, and you will succeed.

-Carol

It was one year for me on Friday, and I'm still here!!

Sure, a year ago today I thought I'd be sitting here 40lb lighter than I am now, but I'm really happy with the 45 pounds I lost over last year (really 54 if you count gaining 9 and then losing it again)...

So while I'd like to be thinner, I like food better!!

I'll get there, I'll just get there in the slow lane.

And I may still be fat, but I'm LESS fat, thank you!

If there were no rain, there could be no rainbows!

I'd like to be thin... but I like food better!

Today is my anniversary. Today I will set my goals to take one day at a time, make healthier food choices and exercise, exercise, exercise. I will be a healthier thinner me but only one day at a time. No more making actual weight loss goals.

Happy Anniversary! People have commented on how good I look, and I tell them it's all thanks to SparkPeople! I lost about 25 pounds this year, with 5 to go. I've done well drinking water & watching what & how much I eat, but just started exercising in earnest this fall. Thank heavens forSP!!

1 year for me on 1-23 and though I'm not where I initially wanted to be by now, I cannot be upset in the least. I think my initial goal wasn't realistic enough to keep the weight off.

I've lost 56 lbs since Jan. 23, 2008 and am 100% positive that I will lose the remaining lbs and meet my goal over the next year.

Today is my 1 year anniversary! I love SP! I lost about 30 pounds last year, a total of 50 in the last 2 years. I took a few weeks off of tracking for the holidays, but got right back on track on Jan. 1st. I'd like to lose another 25-30 this year!

One year for me today. I am happy to be a regular here, still dieting and exercising. I have been slow to lose, but I have lost. My health has improved, I can do 10K hikes. I am now exercising and eating fish daily. I want to be under 200 by Valentines and under 185 by May 12.

All the best to all you. You are great team mates and I am always happy to see you here! We can do it!

Wow! It's hard to believe its been a whole year already. I had a slow year without much progress until recently--that's when I really started to ut all the componets together--eating right within portion limits, exercising regularly, making it my lifestyle, getting my perspective squared away, etc. The one thing I did well from the start was drinking lots of water. I'm ready and eager to keep going on my weight loss.

Happy Anniversary!! It has been a year of ups and downs for me and the scale. Ended up about 30 pounds lighter and in the Bootcamp Challenge. I am reaching for my goal weight by the end of the year. My total weightloss is over 80 pounds.

Today is my 1 year anniv. Glad to see I'm not the only one that hasn't really lost this past year. I will start doing really good only to fall back on bad habits again. Like yesterday. It's that time of the month and sweets got the best of me. I haven't been exercising much this month and that's not good, but the weather has really stunk. I need to get going because Jan. is almost over and I still haven't made any progress.

Happy Anniversary All!

Mine is on the 24th. I was not active the first few months, most just reading the articles and such and then slowly increased my activity on it. I do not know where I exactly started and didnt actually weigh in for the first time until May and probably lost some before then since I had changed my eating habits shortly after joining. I started taking everything more seriously in May and lost tow pants sizes. I have since gained 1 back over the holidays but am working towards the very large goal that I have. The last year is full of lessons learned and I plan to use those lessons in the future and will reach my goal.

I don't remember the exact day I started, but I am extremely grateful for the weight I have lost (39.5 pounds) and am looking forward to continue losing. I went with Sparkpeople's goal for me, but I would like to lose more. This site has been a Godsend for me.

My story sounds pretty much the same as Dragonfly and Musicbeerman. My anny is the 23rd. I stayed pretty good for a couple of weeks when I first signed up, then fell back to old habits and got away from the site. I started up again at the end on July or early August and have been active since. I hope to stay active here in 2009 and make better use of all the great support and information available here.
Happy Anniversary everyone!
