I quit once, shortly after I joined in 2008. I wasn't ready to make the healthy changes and kept avoiding coming back until November 2011. All I can say is it works! I have lost a lot of weight and I am not going to quit this time.
I am so frustrated....I thought I was starting over beginning of july...but still haven't gotten a hand of it....

As you can see, you're in great company! We are human and it happens but you're coming back with the right attitude. I am back up about 30 pounds after losing 80 pounds about 4 years ago. I recently saw a picture from 3 years ago and was reminded of how great I looked. I am using that photo as a goal.

i had quit SP for a period of over 6 months out of laziness. Just no excuse. I recently got back and I'm planning on being a regular. I redownloaded the app to help me track nutrition and water intake when i am not home. I am still getting used to making it part of my daily routine
I joined in 08 lost 60 pounds and then logged in sporadically. I gradually went back to mcdonalds type food and gained it ALL back over 4 years.
There is something about the fellowship here that keeps me focused. I am down 35 since January and 25 with SP. I may be a food addict and need the program to stay healthy-minded. It is not quite that simple because without spark, I let work edge out exercise too. SP keeps both the bad out and good in.

I quit once but I wasn't really into. Really got into it about 3 years ago, lost weight, working out consistently. I got discouraged because I hadn't hit my goal after a year so I took a break. Don't do that! I gained all my weight back and it's so hard to get back into the exercise routine but I'm struggling with that now.
You can do it!! I have quit and come back at least 3 times, it's still a struggle, but no matter how many times you quit, SPARK PEOPLE are still going to be there for you when you come, that's why I love SP! GOOD LUCK TO YOU!

Back in April, I started SP and remembering how great I felt and now wondering why I stopped. I was supported by many, all encouraging me and telling me that I can do this. So not sure why I stopped, expect that I just gave up when faced with a bad day. Silly I know. But I am back and I want to stay and see this things through. How many times have you quit SP and came back and why?
