Hi, I'm Ravi. I've been struggling with weight loss and keeping it off since before I can remember. I was able to shed a lot of weight the summer before my junior year of high school by (I think) doing a lot of exercise and becoming a vegetarian. However, I don't remember. My junior year of high school, I took on swim team which helped for me to keep off the weight. However, the weight slowly came back and I am at my peak weight now.

Reading the Spark made me realize that I was yo-yo dieting and not changing my lifestyle habits and that is why the weight wasn't kept off.

So this time I'm trying to change my habits.
