    Need to lose 35 lbs. and it sure is a PAIN!!! Trying to organize some recipes that won't be boring is quite a challenge. I not exactly a meat eater as it tends to slow my energy down, make me feel sluggish and ill. Always been that way, weird for a Tennessee farm girl,huh...LOL. Anyway, I am looking for some good recipes to try without meat or very little WHITE meat! Red meat just puts me down to much. - 4/29/2014 1:06:09 AM

    Feeling like I will never lose the weight. It was easier when I was younger. I am hoping that Sparkpeople will keep me motivated to eat healthy. - 4/10/2014 2:26:42 PM
  • I am going to start over again. 2 years ago I had lost 70 pounds and was well on my way to losing another 70 but I sustained a head injury which put me off exercise and work for the next year. Now I just feel as if I can't get motivated to do ANYTHING! grrr I gained back 40 pounds and want the gain to stop.

    I am hoping Sparkpeople will be a valuable tool to help me on that path. - 4/6/2014 11:37:54 AM

    Hi, This is my first day. Setting up my planned food intake really was a heads up when I found that good for me avocado (guacamole) and sweet potato tortilla chips would have added 2000+ calories. Oops. Maybe that is why I kept losing and gaining the same 10 pounds for the last two years. My goal is 30 pounds off from where I am at 173, by October. I think the nutrition tracker is going to really help. - 4/1/2014 11:22:40 PM
  • Thanks to each of you for your encouraging comments. To date I have lost 85 lbs; however, 4 months of doing nothing has led me several directions for help. The last 15 are the hardest to lose. Sometimes I just seem to forget there are others just like me struggling. God be with us all. - 3/31/2014 7:02:44 PM

    Lost 8 lbs so far in 3 weeks, on my way to the 30 lbs I would like to loose. I already feel like I am making progress. Thanks to Sparkpeople I have set some goals I beleive I can acheive. And logging food everyday has really helped me to keep the calories in control. - 3/27/2014 12:42:26 PM

    Now is the time. I am upset with my weight gain. I know what is good nutritionally
    and preach a good line, but what I say and what I do are not the same. I would like
    to get back to my goal of 3 months ago of Vegan Before 6 because I felt better.
    With my diabetes diagnosis, I was trying to combine too many factors, and went back
    to animal protein. I actually craved it. I gained 5 pounds. I am determined to be plant based as much as possible, and need to track carefully. Has anyone else had an experience like this? Today I started a new chapter. - 3/16/2014 9:40:52 AM

  • Ok I've been here a little while and have been losing weight but I have had some problems the last 2 weeks and found out I have a large cyst on my ovary so I am having hysterectomy in a few days. I will have a large incision and Dr says no gym for 3 weeks. I am going to need some help on how to keep up with my motivation and my workouts after this surgery. Does anyone know where I can get some easy workouts to ease into that don't involve my tummy. he says i can do arms or legs to start that don't stretch my tummy. I am so upset about all this I was doing so good and now a set back. I don't want to lose my motivation. Feel free to send me some information or tell me where to find this info. - 3/6/2014 11:11:47 AM
