I have struggled with my weight forever. I have been succesful twice and I have gained the pounds back.
This time is different, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia 5 months ago, I need to do something for me, for my body, I have to regain that confidence that took me so far.
SP helped me before and it's helping me now.
I changed my life, my location, my language and my native culture 2 years ago to start a new life, little did I know that it was going to cost me 40 pounds of extra weight. But life happens, the good thing is that I still want to get better and enjoy all the blessings that I have been given. There's so much love around me that it'd be a shame to live in sorrow.
Hopefully I will be able to inspire someone. Surely I will find inspiration.
"Counsel is mine and sound wisdom; I am understanding, power is mine."
Proverbs 8:14

    I read your page. I like what your wrote. where did you move to? Did you come to the U.S or did you leave the U.S. or something totally different? It would be hard to met a lot of people here that could not tell you they lost weight and then later gained it back. That is one of the things about sparkpeople, they teach us that this is a LIFESTYLE not a diet. However, keeping that weight off is just as hard, actually harder than getting it off. It requires living a healthy lifestyle, eating the correct foods and exercising for the rest of your life. Once you got that set in your mind and practice it for a few years we are on our way.

    Welcome to Can't do this on my own. Hope you are loving the team! emoticon
