Hello Sheila
I too lost 100 lbs but had to gain some back in order to qualify for the sleeve.
I'm new to Sparkpeople.
I'm on facebook also - 100plusGO. Feel free to like the page and add recipes or motivation to others. We're all in the same boat :)

emoticon Welcome to Spark. You have taken an important step on your journey by joining!
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 havenít, 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.
Iíve 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!

I've been here before, before my wedding about 2 years ago, but never bought in to the messaging bit.

Ive suffered depression (and was medicated for the last 8 years) and have finally weaned off it (with Dr approval) as one day I want to have a baby.

Unfortunately, Ive swapped meds for alcohol every day - done this for about 2 years.

Looked down today and realised Dang! Im FAT! So here I am.
