Howdy!

I'm a 48 yr. old wife and a mother of three (all grown now!). It's been a while since I have been on Spark People, but now I'm back and hoping to make a new start! My daughter and my neice have been encouraging me and some of my other family members to be a group on Spark People, and it's been very motivating and encouraging.

Howdy!

I'm a 48 yr. old wife and a mother of three (all grown now!). It's been a while since I have been on Spark People, but now I'm back and hoping to make a new start! My daughter and my neice have been encouraging me and some of my other family members to be a group on Spark People, and it's been very motivating and encouraging.

About 12 years ago, I lost close to 150 pounds. Through calorie counting, healthy eating, much exercise, and a lot of support from my family, I went from 275 pounds to 126 pounds. I was able to keep the weight off for a long time. Then I developed a knee injury from running and arthritis in my back. This has limited my ability to exercise and I have gained some weight back over the past few yrs. Although I've been able to keep about a hundred lbs off, I am hoping to lose some of the weight I've gained back by having a healthier diet and reasonable exercise.

I've been trying out a plant based vegan low fat diet and it has been working very well for me. I have also been doing strength training, low impact aerobics, and yoga.

I don't want to gain back all the weight that I worked so hard to take off, so I'm going to try to stay consistent and stick with it this time. I hope it works!

Hope the No S team can help support you in living with this very reasonable lifestyle. Honestly, I can't claim it can make you skinny, but it can make you sane! We've got to find a way that works through life's challenges, not depending on the perfect circumstances. I love our little team, but couldn't have made it without poring over the original site and the book. I'm very willing to support in any way I can.
