Aloha! I'm new to the team, but not new to SparkPeople. Been doing this a while, and I think I might've finally figured out what works for me diet-wise (sticking with what works may be another matter...with my weight fluctuations to prove it). Good luck to all!

Welcome to the Hawaii Sparkers team, CHEETAHLOVER12!!

Yes, you are in the right place for support and encouragement. Congratulations on your success so far, and what you'll learn if you stick around SP, is how to make sure you keep up the good habits and maybe even pick up the pace in ways that will amaze you.
Slow and steady wins the race!

Hi all. I am a returning user of spark people. I am a patient of Bariatric Surgery. I am almost 3 years out. I am doing well with the weight loss but have struggled with eating healthy. My dietician recommended I use spark people. I need to increase my calorie intake as my resting calories is only 820. I need to bring that up to 1100.

I hope maybe this will help me and the support of everyone here.

You are in the right place! We will do our best to support you, and I look forward to seeing you around!!
Sounds like you are on the right track, and just remember, Rome wasn't built in a day, so keep at it steadily and you see both success on the scale as well as those NSVs soon enough!

Aloha Hawaii Sparkers. I am returning to Spark People after a long (6 year) absence. I am 58 years old & a former Hawaii resident. Military brat.My mom is from the Big Island and I have 32 cousins in Hawaii. I started Kindergarten --and graduated high school on Oahu. I have lived in the islands on & off since 1960, finally leaving in 1992. I miss the aloha. I go back every few years to visit my cousins, but my career has me firmly planted in Jacksonville, FL.

I have a lot of health issues that have crept up due to my middle-age weight increases and know that I will have better success at addressing each challenge with the help of Spark People. The educational, moral, and emotional support is unparalleled compared to any other program I've tried in the past.

So, here I am with 50-100 lbs to lose, a diabetes 2 diagnosis that needs to get under control, arthritis issues that limit some of my mobility, a hectic work schedule that drains my energy and interferes with any exercise ambitions (yeah, bad excuse, I know), and many many bad eating habits that I have to surmount --ummm, modify--because there are too many local foods that I can't resist. Mom was Japanese/Dad was caucasian --and you know that I still go to bed with visions of L&L BBQ dancing in my head! Spam musubi, portuguese sausage/rice&eggs, shoyu as a major condiment on the table, etc. Stuff that were the automatic go-to comfort foods that I now have say 'aloha oe' --no longer part of the pantry. My cupboards are empty. My fridge is full of fresh vegetables that dare me to find a palatable way to prepare them that stays within my daily points. ---Oh dear---I need support. And fresh ideas. And a virtual luau to keep my brain happy since my taste buds think I've slipped into a culinary coma. :)

I look forward to meeting all of you and learning the tips and techniques everyone has developed to substitute into a healthy lifestyle, without losing all the local flavor!

Hi Jennifer!
I'm not on Maui either... but I know there is a lot of awesome stuff going on over there and I bet lots of great yoga!
Hopefully a fellow team member will know of something... and hook up with you for buddy work-outs!!
If you're on Oahu, I have a couple of yoga recommendations. emoticon

Sorry Jennifer, I don't live on Maui and was only there once. I heard life is good on Maui so you'll adjust very well. Good luck and as we say in Hawaiian "Welina Mai!" (Welcome!).

Aloha,

My name is Jennifer... I currently live in Tucson Arizona, but am relocating to Maui in July. Oh my that's just a few weeks away!! Yay! It's been quite the adventure just planning the move!! :) I am so excited about our new home. We will be living in south Maui and I'm looking to meet some workout buddies. I welcome any advice on places to eat, workout and have fun. In the past I've used the gym's at the resort or just ran on the beach, oh and kayaking of course. I love yoga too so definitely would love some recommendations on a studio.

Look forward to making friends!!

Mahalo!

Aloha mai kakou! I'm new to Sparkpeople but unfortunately not new to wanting to lose weight. I want to lose weight to get healthy because my health stops me from doing the things I want to do. Mahalo!

Aloha to you!

Glad to see you here and I hope you take advantage of everything on this website to help in achieving your goals. The food tracker is excellent and a great place to start to get an idea of what you are putting into your body, the nutrition and calorie values, and for me at least, I realized how out of balance my eating was.

Over the past 18 months I've managed to reach my goal and now I'm revisiting my goals once more.

Main thing, I am much healthier than I was 18 months ago. I am an active 67 year old. Exercise at he gym daily. Originally I started my weight loss with Weight Watchers (the points plus plan is terrific). I still follow that, but have recently switched to the Dr. Furman Eat to Live program (not for everyone as it is a vegan diet), but it helped in breaking through a plateau I had been stuck at.

I guess we each need to find a style of eating that we can live with and continue to work towards our goals. Difficult as that is at times.

Check out the site and find what works for you.

Aloha, June

Hi! I'm not really new to SparkPeople but definitely pretty new to utilizing everything that's on here. My goal is to lose some weight and to definitely keep up with the new healthier changes and make it a habit for life. Hoping to stay motivated especially during the holidays and parties :)
