I'm back and trying to take an active role in ... ME.
I remind myself "I'm doing this FOR ME" because I know if I do it for any one else, I won't stick with it. I WANT to be healthy. I WANT to be fit.

Right. I'm BACK too.
I think I've been back for about 6 weeks now and I'm happy with my ability to stick with a low carb eating plan AND with the results.

Rosemarie, after losing 50 pounds and getting healthy and addicted to exercise I stayed on Spark People leading a small team and about 6 of us are active everyday on our chat thread. We have a weekly weigh in with a trophy for the monthly winner and just a lot of support and no pressure with too many challenges. Most of the people have time to pop in and track their food and exercise and chat a bit and weigh in but they don't want the pressure of having to be on the site constantly. We would love to have you join our team and we can help keep you motivated and accountable. My team is Sparkie's Spark Plugs and the thread to my team is in my signature thread.

If I share my strength with just one Spark Friend I can help her gain more confidence, become more fit and live a healthy life.

Hi, I'm back here after a long absence. I have lost about 30 pounds SINCE I was here, but had hit a plateau. Hey, at least it wasn't a gain. I now have diabetes, oh. yea. So, now I'm looking to begin the weight loss again.

All of the boards I used to frequent are not active - including this one it seems. When I look for new groups, many are just lingering too. Any suggestion for a search to find active boards? (Assuming anybody sees this, lol...)

xlnt...! I remember how tough it was for me - after not doing ANYTHING to help myself for over a year - to finally admit to myself how much SparkPeople helped me when I first got started....

Sorry to hear you've gone through a lot in the past few months...

I had one huge health scare... my blood pressure... lets just say I was well...well past the heart attack / stroke zone.... and that was enough to scare the you know what out of me - I finally realize I really aren't getting any younger... so I started asking people I knew - what could I do.... I went to a couple of people in my family - that have always talked with me about nutrition - they've seen me with my ups/downs... and to make this long story short - the past 3 months - I've been following Dr. Fuhrman's website and recommendations for overall health - and I'm doing great... its a huge change - but another tool for you to look into to possibly help!

I am here and back at trying. I left and did fat secret for a while with atkins and managed to lose 50 lbs, then my mom had a stroke in 10/2011 then she died 12/25/11, 6 months later I quit smoking and gained all the weight back and kind of gave up on the gym and eating well after my weight ballooned again.

I am disappointed in myself and she would be too to see that I am not taking care of myself. I need to get back on track, so here goes nothing!!

Good to see that some of us are still/back on here. I've definitely been a yoyo the past five years, so hopefully this will be the last year of that madness!

I have hung in there but slowly gained some of the weight back. I'm trying to work on portions again while bringing exercise back into my routine.

I am still here. I have stayed somewhat active. Most of my friends seem to quite after awhile. I am ready for something new to get me going. I have done strength exercises the last three days. I really need to get that back in my life.

What are you doing?
