Thanks for the welcome. I need this daily weigh to keep on track--it's just too easy to fall off this time of year---really it's hard all times of the year. I am returning to Spark to drop back down to 140-148 ish. I am down almost 40 lbs from 245 to 206 since August 30 losing at the rate of about 2.5 a week. It took a year to do it last time---with much exercise, treadmill, elliptical and lifting with dumbbells that resulted in a lot of wear on my feet, hips, and wrists and hands. This time I am working first on reducing calories so I don't have to spend so many hours in the gym. At 48 I have managed to get through menopause and need to protect myself from too much of a good thing--food and exercise.

Don't mind me if I don't chat regularly, I am just nose to the grindstone to get to goal.

Hi Leslie! emoticon to the Team! Although some people do say that it is not a good thing to weigh in every day as your weight just naturally fluctuates, there are many people who do like the idea of weighing in daily. I'm one of those.

So let's say you only weigh in on Mondays -- what if Monday happens to be the day that your weight went up by 2 pounds -- what a bummer. But if you weigh in each day, even if you do see an up and down trend, many times it is only .2 or .4 and whether it is a gain or a loss, sometimes it depends on how much water we drink or how much sodium we took in, rather than the fact that we may have eaten wrong. And when you add in exercise, you have a whole different story. On days when I eat everything right, if I get no exercise, the scale will not move, or if it does it's in the wrong direction.

And I understand the problem with being short -- I'm only 5'2" so a little weight gain seems like a lot for us. But thank you for joining us, and I hope you will join us on the Chat group also. Several of us check in daily, it's a good way to get to know a few of the other members and soon you'll have some new friends.

Hugs, Eve

Hey Everyone,
My name is Leslie, I'm 43 and have been over weight most of my life.

I am so glad I happened upon this group, I know you are not supposed to weigh yourself everyday, but I think it is what helps me. I weigh myself every morning and every night (occasionally in between).

I was my heaviest at 205 lbs (I'm only 5') and that was after I quit smoking. I lost almost 30 pounds (when I first found SP years ago) and got lazy about it after that and gained almost all of it back. When I hit 198 again, I was not happy and had to remind myself that I promised I'd never hit 200 again, so HERE I AM! I've been back at it for quite awhile and am very serious about getting my workouts in and I do pretty good with my eating, but could do better.

I look forward to being apart of this team!

Good Morning Courageous Kim! So happy you found our team, and I'm pleased to see that you are posting on various posts that we have. Hope you will become a regular on our daily Chat group, you will get to know the ones who are avid "scale addicts." (like I am)

I am one of the shorter people on this team at 5'2, so I can relate what you mean about short people carrying around the extra weight. Hopefully, with the diligence you display and some support from fellow team members that 50 pounds will melt off quickly. Or...... we will kick your butt (kidding, of course).

emoticon so glad you joined the DWI team!

Hugs, Eve

hello team, my name is Kim and i have just joined the team. I am a daily weigher and I love that there is a team for this. I am 50# over-weight and at 5'3.5" that is a lot of extra weight to carry. My doctor started me on Belviq yesterday and I am doing a photo journal blog on my page with my weekly progress and weight. It was actually difficult and took a great deal of courage to post the before pics that i posted. However, on the bright side, I now know that i am courageous. :)

I look forward to meeting you all.

Carol, emoticon and that is a motivating message if I ever saw one! It will be interesting to get to know you as you make the journey. We are here to motivate, support, sympathize, maybe even kick your butt; in other words, we'll do whatever we can.

Hope you will join us on daily weigh in, chit chat room, and some of the word games we have going on. There are so many members who are not truly active and do not participate, it will be a joy to have you jump right in!!

Hugs, Eve

Hello Sparkers. I am happy to now be the newest member of the team today. I am looking to lose a large sum of weight over the next year...150 pounds. I believe I have just the right amount of motivation to jump in and hit the ground running.
Looking forward to getting to know all of you...and looking forward to the days to come.

Hi Team members, new and old.

I've noticed that there seems to be such a large group of people joining and leaving it's hard to keep up. Some join for a few days and then decide weighing in daily is not for them.

Anyway with that in mind, I'm not going to try and keep up with whose coming and who's going so I'd like anyone new to just stop by and tell us about yourself -- "please."

Hi everyone!

I just found you through the link on BOOKWORM27S sparkpage after she commented on my new blog about how often to weigh in "seven days to go"

I don't know that I will post my weight every single day - we'll see...I usually wait till I have three days in a row of a consistent reading...

but I am glad to find you all!!!!

See you at the scales!

Welcome Linda! You gals are doing such a good job of introducing yourselves, I don't even find it necessary to do a separate post showing who the new members are. And if you are new and haven't done it yet, perhaps you will take the time to go over and list your birthday and the city and state you live in (on the appropriate posting).

We are a friendly, nosy (and maybe noisy too) group, so the more you tell us, the better we like it. We will either give you a kick in the butt when you need it, or an arm around the shoulder if that's what you need.

Thanks so much for joining -- and I know my thoughts are echoed by Vicki (VITCHY-VICKI) as well.

Hugs, Eve

I remember you, Tiffany! Welcome back, and I'm so happy you decided to join our Team. I know that SP can take up a lot of time, but give us what you've got to spare, and we'll cheer you on to your goal. So happy to hear that your life took a turn for the better.

Hugs, Eve

Hi! My name is Tiffany. I was on SP a while back but stopped due to alot going on in my life (divorce was the start of it). I let myself go during this past year. Now I am happy and in a wonderful relationship. But I am really depressed and down on myself for my weight and lack of self esteem so I came back to SP for the motivation and inspiration.

I am busy now with 4 kids (my boyfriends) so I don't have a lot of time to spend on SP but will make every effort to be as big a part of it as I can to keep me motivated as I know I will meet some wonderful people on here again that will inspire me.

Thank you for warm welcome and the flowers. I look forward to getting to know the group. It is good to know I am not the only one obsessed with daily weighing. It sure does keep you accountable for what you eat....... or don't......

Welcome to Daily Weigh In, Cindy! Yes, here at DWI we are all obsessed with the scale, and what the number reads on a daily basis. But I think it is a good thing -- sometimes it depresses me, but other times I'm elated. If you're bad, you can try harder that day, and if you have done good, you can still try harder -- and feel like it's doing you some good.

See you at the scale first thing in the morning! So nice of you to give us a little thumbnail sketch of yourself. We're a friendly group, so join us when you can on our Chat posting.

Welcome -- from Eve

I have been a member of Sparks since October 2010. I didnít loose much for the first 8 or 9o months but last fall to Christmas I lost 40 pounds. Well not lost so much as I left them where I could easily find them again. I have gained 15 of that 40 and donít want any more of it back. I like to weigh every day and thought this team looked like the place for me.

I am married, 55 years old and live in Alberta Canada.

Well, as you can see, we've two new members!
SUSANFD and
MAK1186
Welcome to both of you! Maria, you are quite young and I have a feeling with youth on your side and the great motivation you wrote about you will be slim and trim in no time.

For those of us who are a bit older, each year it seems harder and harder to get those pounds off -- and to keep them off. I speak from experience on this as up unril I was 50 years old I was slim and trim -- now I'm 73 and it takes discipline and consistency, there is no way to get around it. My highest weight was 162, but I'm only 5'2, so I looked pretty dumpy! I've just arrived at 140 and feeling better, but have pounds to go yet. Just don't give up -- ever!

My name is Maria and I have been a member of SP for 4 years. I am 25 years old and currently in physician assistant school. In the summer of 2010, I lost about 25lbs and put them all back on. I really need to get this weight off again so I can be a role model to my patients and practice what I preach. I look forward to getting to know all of you!

I also blog my food with pics daily, check out the link in my signature if you are interested! :)

Welcome to "Daily Weigh-In" Donna! I think this team is fairly active, although you will find it's the same members (only a handful) that do all the posting. Seems to be fairly common for most of the Teams I've looked at.

Good to have you with us, and we'll see you at the scale -- first thing each morning! Also we'd like to hear more about you, so check in on the posts "Chat Room" "What did you have for Breakfast" "Emotcion for Today" and perhaps others! We'll all be friends in no time!

Hello All, my name is Donna and this is my first week back to SP after over a year (plus all I lost). I am in the process of changing some of my teams and was looking for a team that is very active, and from the posts, it looks like this one is. I have updated my SparkPage a little and am ready for another new start.


I WILL look to smaller goals to accomplish the final goal!

Looking forward to getting to know the team and participating.

Hi! I'm Sharon and will be celebrating my emoticon at the end of the month. I'm currently maintaining my weight range and have been keeping a daily weight log for over two years. It's also time that I reassess my wellness program and make minor modifications.

I'm not new to SP, just back after several months of self defeat. I believe I'm finally ready to lose this weight, especially after the wake up call of reaching an all time high of 220 pounds. Starting this new journey the right way with old school healthy eating and exercise. I look forward to getting to know the team and participating.
