Hey beautiful girl,
I just want to say to remember to take your measurements also so that you will be able to check them again in a month or at whatever point you decide. Sometimes our bodies stop losing pounds as it readjusts to the weight it currently is. During that time we may be losing inches. That is always an incentive to keep pushin' it.
Have your doctors said what is causing your hydrocephalus? Mine is caused by a colloid cyst blocking the third ventricle of the brain (my bog of June 12, 2012 Brain Surgery will be in August) If you copy and paste this, you should be able to read the blog. Sorry I couldn't link it for you. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_j
ournal_individual.asp?blog_id=4924191) so that the fluid is backing up and causing pressure on the brain. I am going to Cleveland Clinic next Thursday, Aug. 16 for my surgery. Dr. Luciano will remove the cyst while ruining my perfectly good and only a week old perm. lol If the drainage doesn't start right away, he will put in a shunt to drain it.
Let me know what you know about your hydrocephalus. Are you having surgery soon? What are they telling you? I have added your name to my daily prayer list and will be praying for you.
Blessings and hugs,

WELCOME TO SPARK!!!
Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time. A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.
1. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.
2. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.
The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family!

Hi and welcome to Spark People where you will find lots of information and tons of support and encouragement from all our members. You will find that we also have fun along the way. Drink your 8-8oz glasses of water a day (If you only drink one now, add to as you are able until you are drinking your 8 cups or more a day), watch your portion control (measure everything in the beginning...guaranteed it will get easier) and walk, dance or do any exercise you enjoy (start with 10 minutes a day or several times a day and add to it as you are able or have time). Use your fitness and nutrition tracker daily (guaranteed to work if you use them consistently and honestly). Pick one thing to change...one thing at a time. Don't try to change to many things at once as that can be very overwhelming. Just try to take one step, one minute, one hour, one day, one week at a time. They honestly will all add up to the bigger numbers. These tips will definitely help in lowering your numbers and increasing your ability to enjoy life. Don't expect miracles right away...this is a lifestyle change not a diet. You will be much healthier in the long run. Post any concerns, comments or questions you may have and someone will respond quickly.
Start each day with a positive thought just for that day. Reading and reflecting on an inspirational thought or message before you start your day can put you in a positive frame of mind.
Your thoughts determine whether you have a good day or a bad day. Fill your mind with positive ideas, suggestions, and thoughts. You will find it will change your attitude and changing your attitude can change your life.
Sometimes just reading an inspirational quote or a short paragraph helps one see the positive in a situation. Sometimes as your day progresses you just need to take a break...Take a mental break and read or think about a message of inspiration.
Never underestimate your power to change and improve! You are a good person, with wonderful qualities, and you can reach your goals!
If I can be of any help to you, please let me know with a spark mail or a comment on my page. I am here for you.
God bless you on your journey to a healthier you.
