Hello everyone.
My name is Janice. I have struggled with weight for most of my life. I would get to goal and stay there a few months and then loss focus and gain it back. I used to be able to loose 30 pounds in three months. This is not the case anymore, it is much slower. Glad I joined spark people for the support and inspiration I need.

I just switched from Weight Watchers. I was a member since March 2015 and lost seven pounds. $19.99 a month is expensive for what the on-line program offers. The tracking is similar but the community on this site is more active. This site has more recipes and it provides much more nutritional information.

I have been trying to lose 5 lbs by January 1st. I was down 3lbs in two weeks and then ate ham and Mac and cheese yesterday for a Christmas splurge and gained 4lbs in one day!! I hope it's just water weight from the carbs and salt, but I get discouraged from my very big weight fluctuations from day to day!!! I almost joined weight watchers today as that has worked for me in the past, but I don't want to spend the money. I've tried spark people in the past and it doesn't seem to keep me as accountable, but it's free, so worth a try!!!so, here we go!!!

Hi, I'm Amy. If you look at my ticker, it looks like I have only have 15 pounds to lose, but I was intimidated when I saw the real number (40+) so I decided to focus on a smaller goal first so I'd be less likely to get discouraged. I have a chronic condition that causes me to fatigue easily and impacts my mobility, so there are limits to the amount and types of exercises I can do. I'm focusing on consistently completing my physical and occupational therapy exercises so I can increase my daily activity levels. On the food side, my husband's doctor recommended he follow the DASH diet, so I'm seeing what impact that can have on my healthy eating habits. I just got a reconditioned Vitamix for an early Christmas present, so I'm planning to use that and my crock pot to help me get healthy meals on the table with minimal effort. I'm looking forward to being a part of this forum. I used SparkPeople in the past, but I've got a new login name and am starting from scratch so that I can focus on moving forward, instead of seeing where I stopped being disciplined in the past.

Hi! I turned 40 this summer and am still working on my journey to better health. Just trying to rev things up to spark my motivation again and stay on track. I mainly work an office job which we know can be detrimental to our health so I'm learning how to balance. Looking forward to being a part of the 40 somethings and fit!

One day at a time!

Hi, I am 45, newly divorced mom/kindergarten teacher looking for a support group to lose the weight I've put on this past year. I would be happy to lose 20 but 30 would be a plus. I am doing Zumba and just started doing the 21 day fix.

Hello, all! I am a female, 49 year old, 5'4", engaged, Private Investigator in Florida with four grown children. I have become a bit sedentary and went from 110 pounds to 155 in the last three years. I have lost 5 in the last week and shall continue. (Getting over my faux pas of indulging in a bit of "bad" food yesterday on Thanksgiving!) No matter how "old school" EA Sports Active 2 for wii sounds to kids today, I swear by it. I lost 50 pounds on it years ago and I am using it again. Completed my first full workout today (have been trying for a week, but had to build up strength!) and I feel proud and GREAT. I am down 5 pounds in a week and will continue my diet and workouts. Wishing everyone else success. ;)

Hi!
My name is Janet and I am married with two boys (ages 12 years and 9 years). I work part-time in a semi-busy retail pharmacy as a Pharmacy Technician.

I think the stresses, exhaustion and life has made me use food to get me through my day-to-day activities. I want to make this work and I will make it work.



See Ya!
Janet

Hi Roadrunner755

Welcome to the team!

And OMG---share that quinoa pizza recipe!

So glad you're here. Use the SP food track, it will help you determine a calorie range and adjust for exercise too.

Welcome back to SP Annapolitanya!

You have a great concept about making this about a healthy lifestyle. Plenty of free workout videos on SP and YouTube and you can always walk. Exercise doesn't have to cost us a fortune!

Good luck and feel free to add me as a friend if you'd like.

Hi, I'm a mother in her late 40s. First time on Spark People. My goal is to lose 40 pounds that I gained over the last 10 years or so. A good friend of mine introduced me to Spark People. When I told her how much I'd been eating she told me "You're starving yourself". I was shocked when I realized that I wasn't eating enough (and gaining weight). So I decided to start tracking my food intake. SP makes it incredibly easy. I'm planning on shooting for 1200 calories and 70 grams of protein a day. I've only being using SP for 5 days but I'm more encouraged than I ever have been by any other plan. I'm eating healthy and meeting my goals and I'M LOSING WEIGHT!!! I plan on using SP as long as it takes to learn how much food I need, until it becomes routine (translation - even after I get to my goal). I'm so excited again to try new healthy recipes (like the Quinoa pizza I made for dinner tonight). Thanks SP for making this journey easier for me!

Hi! I'm 43 and proud mom of one. I put on 60+ lbs with my pregnancy over 7 years ago and lost 30 lbs but gained it all back. I want to lose 40 lbs. and adopt a healthy lifestyle. Before I got pregnant, I never had to work hard to stay thin. Things change! Time to get serious 'cause it's not going to get any easier!

I too am a previous member and decided it was time to come back. I've been gone for over a couple of years, and have actually lost weight since my last membership. I still have a little more to go, but need the support, encouragement, and push to get it done.
My name is Tim, and I'm almost 47 years young. I live in Waynesboro, Va. with my wife of 11 years and dog Samson of three years.
I'm looking forward to meeting as many of you as possible and forming a great friendship.

Good morning! I'm back to SparkPeople after a nearly 3-year hiatus. Without going into a ridiculously long story, I had great success from 2011-2012, and was maintaining when the bottom fell out of my life. I've had some major challenges to overcome, and while I am not all the way there yet, I'm making strides and stepping forward each day. I've regained weight and lost fitness...and while I'm just at the very edge of being overweight, what is most important for me is a healthy lifestyle, a healthy diet, and my level of fitness. I don't have as many resources available to me due to changes in my income and budget, but I have achieved my goals before and have confidence that I can achieve them again! I'm trying something new...reaching out and joining a community, which is difficult since I am very introverted. I'm looking forward to meeting people and supporting one another! Cheers!

January 16, 2020: 177 lbs, BP 140/90
Goal: 125 lbs by July 4th
Goal: Reclaiming my healthy lifestyle; walking and/or strength training 6 days/week!

Welcome to the team RMRDBALLERINA

Sadly a lot of medications can cause weight gain. The changes you've made so far seem to really be working well for you. Keep up the great work!

I've been struggling with my weight since my early 30's, after being put on an anti-depressant medication. By the time I turned 40 I'd been as heavy as 220 and struggled to get down to 208. Last year, my doctor decided the anti-depressant was no longer beneficial and took me off of it. That alone caused a 20 pound loss. Earlier this year, my boyfriend had a health scare and decided it was time to eat clean. I lost another 14 pounds just cutting out most junk food and all soda and eating out only once a week along with walking fairly regularly with my dog. My doctor was really happy with my numbers at my physical this year but for my future health, would like to see me lose another 20-25 pounds. Time to step up my game!

Hi Deepika

Welcome to the team! I've given up caffeine and sugar too! It was hard initially but it really helped.

congratulations on the success you've had thus far!

Hi, everyone.

I'm new to the group. I just turned 46 last month and live in the San Francisco Bay area (Silicon Valley). I see my parents struggling with health issues as they age and many are related to weight. I want to improve my health as I near 50 and I hope to lose 40 lbs.

Hi MissDoo1

Welcome to the team. I'm in South OC. We're practically neighbors.

For the sweet tooth, try eating fruit. That usually helps calm my sweet tooth down.

Hello, I just joined the group. I live in San Diego California and I'm really hoping to shed these extra pounds. I quit smoking and gained a bunch of weight. I workout a lot and would love some buddies : ) The bad part is that lately, I've had a bad sweet tooth the last 2-3 days. During the day I eat great, it's at night that gets me...my goal is 8 -10 lbs month. I'm glad to find this group and have a go at this with you all. I would love to give/receive support : ) I'm looking to loose about 30-33lbs.

Hello! Just joined yesterday and need the support, so thanks for having me. I am 43 (almost 44) years old. About 4 years ago, I lost about 40 lbs on Medifast, but in the last 2-3 years, have gained it all back plus some due to life stress, etc. I have just recommitted to Medifast to jump start my weight loss and healthy eating - I plan on this just for a couple of months and then will do tracking my eating so that I continue to lose and relearn healthy eating habits. Thanks for having me here!
