Hiya team! I'm still here - wow can't believe its been almost a year. I've pretty active on sparkpeople - have it on my phone so I log my fitness minutes daily and "try" to log in all my nutritional stuff but not as good with that. I've lost some weight but far from my goal so will continue to stay active on sparkpeople.com I've become physically active but neglected my diet since I was able to eat everything and still maintain - now I want to go back to losing weight again.

I am still here, but for some reason I was never active on this team. I received an email to check in, and it dawned on me that I never did check in. Oh well...I think I was a little overwhelmed when I first joined. There was so much info coming at me, and the more I explored on my own, the farther away I got from this team...I think.
I have lost about 10 pounds in the last 11 months...not so good. But the last couple of months, I keep gaining and losing the same 5-7 pounds over and over. I am working on kicking up my cardio, and dropping my calories to the lower end of my scale...even on workout days.
I have stayed pretty active on Spark, joining several of the challenges...I am currently a starfish on the spring 5% challenge. I love the challenges.
Hope everyone has a great weekend. Next week will be our 1 year anniversary. emoticon

I've decided I am going to own up to my own laziness. You guys are all doing great, so I am a little bit ashamed.

I slacked off and gained almost 20lbs since my starting weight in June for a high around 193 lbs in January.

However, I just did a 5k race at the end of April and am back to my running. I am starting Meatless Mondays so I can learn how to get more vegetables in my diet instead of building meals around meat. I've also started tracking all my food again. My husband and I have started our own "biggest loser" contest.

Anyone else lurking around who is starting over? Hey, at least starting over is better than giving up forever!

I am still here - check in everyday and do a huddle every day.

You ladies are doing so well in losing your weight - I am stuck at 10 pounds which is way behind - maintaining but need to kick it up.

I'm still here! Haven't checked in for awhile--but I wanted to get more active. I have lost 9 lbs--got off track because I had to have surgery. But I have the all clear now!

I'm still here. Well I just got back. I've been away for a while and put on a few pounds but want to get started again. Glad to see people are still here and doing really well!

I'm still here---I lost 60 pounds between June and October of last year and am now in a holding pattern. Didn't gain anything which astounds me, but I need a kick in the butt!! I'm having my knee scoped next Wednesday, then about a week (or less) from then should be able to get back to normal. I really love Spark, I can't see mysel leaving it even after I lose lots of weight.

I asked God to spare me pain.
God said, No.
Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares
and brings you closer to me.

Pray when you are uncertain. Pray twice as hard when you are certain!

I
know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I'm not
sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

Ooh! I just got a bodybugg too! I love it. It really helps to see what my real calorie burn is. No excuses when it doesn't burn as much to shovel snow as I think it does!

I have the one that can communicate with my droid phone. It's so fun to get real-time updates!

Take care of that body, it is too late to return it !

I am still here. You have had great success. My daughter has lost 60 pounds since we joined in June and I have lost 32.

I am still at least 22 pounds from my goal weight but have just purchased the "bodybug" to try to restart my enthusiasm. I am 65 so when I felt better in my clothes it was fairly easy to say to myself "why try so hard. Nobody sees your body but you and your doctor." :) But then I need to remind myself that this is not just about wearing a size 14 instead of an 18. It is about my general health.

So back to the exercise and back to recording my foods and back to trying to get 8 hours of sleep. I can do this and so can you. Lets roll!

Roll Call! Who's still working at it? It's been a long time since June, what have you achieved?

I'm getting close to my halfway point, and am hoping to get to my goal weight and start maintenance by the end of 2011.

By now, eating right and exercising are well-established habits, but it's amazing how quickly overeating and laziness can creep back -- over the holidays, for example!

Take care of that body, it is too late to return it !
