Restarting the Spark (again)

It started May 8-10, 2010, my time here at SP.

To everyone that's ever given me encouragement, I'm sorry that I disappeared without a trace. Thank you for believing in me when I didn't believe in myself.

I've looked for the easiest way out & it may have worked for a while but I never truly learned the lesson. Even now, I'm looking for a quick fix even though I realize that it's not the answer.

To everyone that's ever given me encouragement, I'm sorry that I disappeared without a trace. Thank you for believing in me when I didn't believe in myself.

I've looked for the easiest way out & it may have worked for a while but I never truly learned the lesson. Even now, I'm looking for a quick fix even though I realize that it's not the answer.

I had lap band surgery but it gave me complications with swallowing & regurgitating food. It also hurts from time to time when I exercise. I had lost 30 lbs w/ this method but since I don't have money to pay for adjustments, I have this device that I'm not using. If I had to do it all again, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Although I knew about the downsides & potential problems associated w/ the surgery, my issues haven't been documented & as of now, no MD can help me. I'm pretty much on my own & since I no longer work for a hospital, I don't have the money to remove the lap band.

On the HCG diet, I lost 30 lbs in 12 weeks and kept it off for 6 months only to regain it all back & then some.

Success & failure. I've never used SP by itself, it was always in conjunction with something else & the reason I gained back what I lost is because I disappeared from SP.

I stopped tracking my meals, getting support when it was needed, or giving support when I myself found success.

SP was my video game. Initially everything was about scoring points. I wanted to score the highest amount of points but I really didn't digest the information that was available on this website. When my obsession w/ getting points on SP faded, I stopped logging in & I disappeared. Treating SP as a game didn't work for me so I'll try to use it the way that it was designed.

And so here I am again, trying to restart the Spark.

Possible error, but strange nonetheless!

The difference is so minute that it doesn't matter either way!
