    Are you interested in a Challenge?

    The Biggest Loser goes for 10 weeks. It consists of 10 teams participating in weekly Fitness and Nutrition challenges. The Spring challenge will be getting started the beginning of March. It consists of fitness and nutrition challenges that are often in a form of a game. If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Winter we had Help Santa Fill His Sleigh, Run Rudolf Run and Super Bowl. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Spring challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the Blue Biggest Loser Icon, copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Frosted Fitness Fun Chit Thread.

    This is a "standard" comment I have. I saw your post. This is how you stop. I also suggest your directly contact Slenderella61. She is in the 80 pound loss category. God bless you.

    Here is what I have done:

    Buy a scale, a good one. Follow Spark recommendations. Set up your weight goal, "Edit goals" on the Start Page, don't set a radical weight loss. Track ALL your food (good and bad days, you have to be honest with yourself). Drink water. I personally did all this. I set a goal of 1 pound a week over 5 months. I dropped more at first, 2 pounds a week, but then things evened out. Nowadays I just keep my daily calorie target at the low number that Spark recommends. Sometimes I have to eat a bit when I don't really want to just to hit the minimum. Make sure as you lose weight, you update your Spark weight so your calories will adjust properly.

    Get a not-fancy Fitbit. You just need a steps tracker. Set a do-able steps goal. Sync it with Spark, and set up your fitness activity to use steps for calorie calculations.

    I am slowly going down. Some days the scale is up 2 pounds, that's all right. I just keep to the course. I "officially” weigh once a week. I measure my gut at biggest point and hips. I keep a personal log of my health items, I enter it daily. I weigh most days and record it. When I see a new low, I highlight it. I can go back through my log and see a slow, sometimes unsure, but steady weight drop. That view really feels good. I walk every day now, didn’t at first. I’ve increased my walk to a continuous 30 minutes and at least 9000 steps. That’s it.

    I suggest you look up Slenderella61. This is her comment on a blog I wrote.

    I lost my first 50 pounds at an average of 1.75 pounds per week. I lost the last 30 pounds at half a pound a week average. Yes, it was exciting to lose faster, but there were advantages to the later stage, too:

    1) whenever I messed up, I could focus on how far I had come to keep from getting discouraged. (look at those old big clothes I don't need; look at old pictures; think about the things I couldn't do when I was heavy, etc)
    2) I felt a whole lot better once I'd lost 50 pounds
    3) exercise was more fun as I got smaller
    4) I learned a lot about nutrition and healthy, satisfying foods that helped as I continued the lifestyle

    I'm sure there are things you have learned and things you can do now that you couldn't do before that are helping you lose now.

    sorry about the loss of your father. Stuggling is the hardest part. I identify with you. I myself lost 50 pounds a few years ago and agree it help awesome. I had some changes happen in my life and a few people walked away from me… needless to say i gained it back and then some …. i am just getting back on track… I want that 50 gone again and more… I hope that we can reach out to each other in times of struggle. Thank you for sharing! emoticon
