Thanks for your message Sheila! Day three and it's going well so far. Most of it is down to positive mental attitude. Also need to stick with it if and when I fall off the wagon! Good luck to you too! Ali

Welcome back to Spark. You have taken an important step on your journey by returning! I've been a member a little over 3 years. I made fantastic progress and lost 100 pounds in the first year BUT I became careless about nutrition and exercise and have gained a lot of the pounds back! I became disgusted with myself and closed my Spark account, but soon realized I NEEDED to be here. I'm back using the nutrition and exercise trackers now - they are so important. The sense of community and the friendships I have made here keep me going! Explore the site, make your Sparkpage if you haven’t, join teams, and make friends. You will find this site an amazing place full of encouragement, inspiration, advice, and support. We are here to keep everyone motivated. I’ve found that the best source of motivation on spark is posting, asking questions, and finding new friends that are in this together. We are all on this journey of a healthy live style, so your not alone in this. People need someone to believe in them. They need to know that if they take that first step out of their comfort zone, someone will be supporting them all the way. With small words of encouragement, with just a little extra time, that someone could be you. In some cases, others may just be unaware of their true abilities and potential. Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with. Good luck! Sheila
I joined spark people back in 2010 when I was a size 16, didn't exercise and felt very frumpy and unhappy. I went on to get down to a size 10/12 and felt great. Sadly over the following years the weight has crept on. I still go to the gym but don't work out very hard! I also eat loads of rubbish food alongside very healthy food. The trouble seems to be that eating rubbish has become a habit. The moment the kids are in bed I veg on the sofa and eat chocolate/crisps etc. As of yesterday I am trying to break this habit. I have started by ridding my cupboards of any bad food and by writing down what I eat I have to think about it. I'm thinking about everything I eat and if I need to eat it. I know I can do this as I've done it before but it seems harder this time round!
