Be the change you wish to see in the world. ~ Mahatma Gandhi

I have been a member of SparkPeople for five years. I lost over 150 pounds at the beginning and then gained but for the first time I did not gain back more than I lost. I can't imagine where I would be if I had not stayed around, even when gaining. I am determined to drop this weight once and for all and to get healthier.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I am reading an excellent YA book called "A Long Walk to Water" and when you read about the conditions they live in- we are really in better health here than our predecessors or other countries people could ever hope to be in. It isn't a complaint- really- it just seems to add to that unhappiness that 'nothing I do is the right thing'. But I do understand your point, too. Love you, friend.

Thanks for lighting a flame under me. Oh, and adding a kick or three! I have a big feeling we go through a lot of the same things/feelings in our lives and have a good understanding of that. LOL I'll work hard at keeping myself on track and will be more than happy to kick your behind whenever you need it! emoticon

Hi Team leader. Good job so far!

I feel your pain when it comes to consistently losing weight. But I know that once we stay on track and keep motivated, we can and will be successful. Lets rock this challenge and come out on top!
