    Hello to everyone I'm back for the 3rd. try and going to make it stick this time. I have about 25 lbs. to lose and lost 6 the first week. I don't think the 6 lbs. is doable every week but I am going to try, Just going to take it one day at a time and hope everything will fall in place. Exercising is going to be a hard barrier to cross 77 yrs old 2 bad knees and very bad back and a bad shoulder. got get some help to pick out some exercises that manage. been walking 40 - 60 min.a day when the weather is fit, it's not fast but it is exercise.
  • I also would like to quit my teams and start over/ I've been gone a while and my goals are changed. Thank you!
  • I just joined this group and love this app. My goal is too loose 20 lbs and getting motivated to do some excersice. I am retired and have been living a sedentary life due to lower back pains. I am excited and looking forward to reaching my goals.
  • I, too, would like to know how to remove myself from a team? I'm no longer in
    my forties!
  • Can i set up a team for myself and co workers?
  • How do I remove myself from a team ??

    I need to lose 68.8 pounds but I will get there by 12-1-15. I have to prove it to myself that I am strong enough to do so. 2 pounds a week isn't very much.

    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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    Hi, Im new here I lost 30 lbs, but have put some back on, hoping u can help me, started my healthy eating habits 2 day again. Had cereal ( hot grape nuts cereal with low fat milk), this morning. lunch was a ( spinach wrap with ham , low fat cheese, mustard, water ) , snack ( frozen grapes dipped in carmel & water ) , good start I think, dinner not sure yet. I use to be 115 and I wanna get back down. so ned encouragement. I'm 212, and wanna get to 115 again. my small goal right now is 180. Smaller goals are easier. :)

    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.
  • 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.
