I'm so grateful for SparkPeople! I started (again) at 280 in April, 2013, determined to lose at least 100 pounds. I've lost 30+ so far, from my highest weight in January, 2013, of 288. Now I am headed to losing 100 more.

I'm losing 'from the inside out" -- getting healthy in body, mind, and spirit, with the love and encouragement from so many Sparkfriends in this wonderful community. This, I know, is what I need for long term stable weight loss.

If I can you ...

If I can you do it -- so can you. I've been though major life changes here, and I keep learning to love myself, treat myself well, and thus eat better and move my body.

A quote from the Dalai Lama

"There are only two days in a year that nothing can be done. One is called 'yesterday' and the other is called 'tomorrow', so today is the right day to LOVE, BELIEVE, DO and mostly, LIVE."

So all I really have to do is live for today and take each one as it comes. If I do each day well I can succeed.

Has the whole foods diet caused you to have a B-12 deficiency? I can't eat soy due to thyroid disease. What do you use as your protein source?
