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.

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?

I find that a lot of enjoying walking has to do with picking the right spot. I love my hiking trail my hubby made for me. It's cool and shady and there are always surprises.
