Have you done the spark stages...I started with them, some of the stuff seemed strange but what did I have to loose but 200+ pounds....I followed them step by step and it taught me how to live a healthy life, not just diet.. I am the happy I did it slow and have been able to keep it off and keep going..
Thank you so much for accepting my friend invitation! I am very honored! I have been looking around on Spark people for quite sometime now and just now am getting up enough courage to talk to someone. I am really having a hard time getting motivated. I am way over 50 and I see so many overweight people my age or older in stores on oxygen, have really bad skin problems on their lower legs, red, purple, and some are so heavy they need the electric wheelchairs to do their shopping. I am getting to notice so much more now. I am starting to have fears of ending up with these problems. Yet I can't seem to get motivated enough. It's like an addiction. I think getting depressed all the time with feelings of hopelessness is a large part of my problem.
