  • Tracking every bite and having it calculated for me is a wonderful tool.. I've kept to under 1400 calories each day-Yippee!!! - 1/12/2013 11:26:57 PM
    That is great. - 1/9/2013 3:14:49 AM
  • Would love to learn how to blog here as well as other places. I now just need the motivation to get back to exercising again it has been a while and now with time off it is a matter of forcing myself back to the gym. - 1/7/2013 8:12:11 AM
    today was my 1st day of tracking, I did pretty well. I had fun tracking, and it opened my eyes to How Much I Eat everyday. I am a manager in an elementary cafeteria. Of course I do have to taste my cooking, but I will track it. I can't wait to see how much I eat. Maybe I can wait LOL - 1/5/2013 7:36:44 PM
  • Getting back in the swing of things. Started drinking green smoothies. DELISH!!!! Going to work my way up to 1 green smoothie a day. BTW-the fruit you add to your green smoothie covers the taste of the veggies. And they will fill you up.
    Like to walk and just starting to jog but it really cold out now so I think I'll do my walking dvds inside for now until I get back to the gym next week. My goal is to drop a total of 100 lbs AND to run a couple of 5k races. When the temp permits, I will do my 4 mile outside walk. Got to keep moving. - 1/3/2013 9:52:45 PM
  • Hi everyone I am Tammy and today is my first official day with sparkpeople. I had been eating like a pig over the holidays and I was shocked to see I had gained 8 pounds MORE than I thought I was just because of mindless eating!! It felt good to take charge and get back on track - 1/2/2013 9:18:57 PM

  • Very good article!!!! - 12/26/2012 10:16:48 PM
    Since I have joined I have lost 10 pounds, but the last two weigh ins, I am remaining at the same wt. The holidays are hard-too many parties with good food and emotional eating in the evening. Lost my husband two years ago and after reading the article on emotional eating realize that is what I was doing. However I am holding my wt so am pleased about that. Have tried to see where to write a blog, but as yet can not figure how to start one. Love this site-and I tell others how good it is for your health. - 12/23/2012 8:56:14 AM
  • So my journey is well on its way. I began sparkpeople in Sept after I had already lost 10 lbs. I am now 34 lbs lighter and well on my way to becoming a healthier and happier me. My goal has never been about looking better but is about feeling better. I hope to continue my journey and next sept be close or at my goal. Best wishes to everyone at this holiday season! - 12/2/2012 2:51:18 PM
    I had lost 75 pounds four years ago and felt great but i let myself slid back into the too busy to work out attitude and ive gained 40 punds back. I dont like what i see in the mirror so im going to start here and work towards my weight loss goal of loosing 40 pounds:) - 11/19/2012 10:36:08 PM
    I am so thankfull for this sample pack i came across to shed my weight. I still can't beleive how easy my weight loss has been. I just wished i had tried this product sooner but, better late then never! I was going through so much pain with all my weight, was hurting mostly my back. I jusr couldnt get my mind and body to be on the same page, but, finally they are. This product shrinks my mid section so, when i am eating i get full much faster. I even had to remind myself to eat! I eat the same foods as before but, just less of it. Very easy for me to do, simple the better to my success because for me then it feels like i am not on any diet or weight loss program. If i had alot of money, i would have gave this product away for free to everyone i know! Especially on buddyslim, you guys have been great with the support. Cannot weight to check my weight tomorrow morning!! - 11/8/2012 11:20:17 AM
  • Today is my first day. My motto is I CAN DO THIS. I am big and slow and can't keep up with my two 6 year old boys. Despite this, I continue to keep going for my boys. I want to shed this weight and run with them. I entered all my info on Sparkspeople and it says it will take me until April of next year to lose 50 pounds. This sounds amazing and daunting all at the same time. Here I go! - 10/28/2012 12:49:32 PM
