Sounds as if some of you have done really well since commencing in Feb 2008. I have only lost 30 kilos so have 15 kilos to go. I was going to finish by my anniversay next month but that was too much to expect. Knowing what I do from Spark People I am definately the tortise, slow and steady wins the race. I now have a realistic goal date of my 59th birthday in September just proir to a huge reunion I am having here in Vietnam with other Aussie Vietnam Veterans, some I haven't seen since 1970/71.

I am making 2009, my year to achieve more than I have ever before. Lets keep losing that bulk, fat, weight, gut, lard whatever you call it, give it back. It really doesn't belong to you and you don't really want it. Do you?

LIVE AND LET LIVE

I can't imagine being away from home for 3 weeks, much less 3 months! That had to be stressful! Good job getting back on track!

Ti, I try to stop in here when I can... I'm a co-captain on a couple challenge teams, so 90% of my SparkTime is spent there.

It's so awesome that you've reached your original goal and are redefining what you are going to do. You're definitely an inspiration to the rest of us!

Audra congrats on the 100+ lbs lost, that is awesome! How come we never hear from you on this team?

I'm down 34kgs / 75 lbs, although I've passed my original goal I'm still losing until I find my comfort spot so my goals are now 1kg at a time. I'm healthy, it happened over the last 10 months, it happened I suppose without too much conscious thought, but I really am healthy allround, and I love the feeling.

I think my greatest accomplishment is that I'm still here on SP, still logging my food and fitness everyday, still checking in with my teams and participating in challenges. I haven't lost faith in myself and I've kept it consistent - for me that is a huge accomplishment.

I am doing good. Went from 76 kilos to 69.6 from february to august (Slow and steady wins the race) but then went to Ghana for three months and GAINED a lot of it back, to 73.4 kgs or something. Now I am at 72.6 kgs and it's just gonna go down, down, down from here! I wanna reach my goal weight before the summer of 2009 :)

emoticon but I'm not an old pro at this! I'm 10 months in, same as everyone else! I'm just ultra-determined to be healthy. I've spent too many years not living... I'm done with that!

Ruth, have a wonderful trip home to see your family! Over 50 pounds lost is a great accomplishment! You'll be celebrating that next mini-goal of yours in no time!
Happy Holidays!

I'm 7 lbs. from my next 10% goal but I know that I'll get there. I just lost another 3 lbs. to make it a total of 56 lbs. I have been on many plateaus as you all have heard, but all in all if I look at the whole time I've been here it works out to 1.25lbs. per week which to me is awesome. Hope everyone has a happy and healthy holiday! My DH and I are driving from Chicago to MA next week with our 2 dogs for the Christmas holiday. I haven't spent Christmas with my family for the last 3 years so I'm pretty excited. Hoping that my Italian family doesn't get me to over do it. Since I've turned vegan last August it shouldn't be too bad with all the types of food they have. They will make some special stuff for me and I will survive.
