I was reading your story while looking for a buddy to go through my weightloss program with and it sounds very similar to mine. I have 5 children and have tried so many diets. Now I am doing the healthier lifestyle thing. I just started in sparkpeople and I hope that your 50 lbs are almost demolished and if not maybe we can message each other about progress and motivate one another. 2532 days ago
Hi there, and welcome to Spark! I love your attitude-- You CAN do this! And, the great thing is, there are a lot of wonderful tools here on Sparkpeople that will help! I highly recommend Sparkteams as a way to get to know like-minded individuals with similar goals who can encourage you every step of the way!
Your goals look very similar to mine when I started. In the past 16 months, I lost 52 pounds and have been able to keep it off! My size 24s are now an unbelievable 14/16! I'm here to tell you, it CAN be done! Keep the fith, and drink plenty of water!
