When I decided to join Sparks I was 289 lbs and after much hard work (losing weight is a hard job for all of us) I finally made it to 279 lbs. Every once in a while my body decides its time for me to go back on Prednisone - and there goes Jo packing on the pounds againSince the beginning of the year I've been on this medication 5 or 6 times for 10 days at a time. I decided to brave the scale and my weight has spiraled to 295 lbs. I couldn't bear to change my weight sticker-it was humiliating and depressing but THANKS to my Spark Friends I am changing my weight sticker and starting over again. Everyone on our team is posting what we eat everyday, which keeps us focused. Thanks to Sparks Teams and the inspiration messages my motivation is back. The reason I'm writing this down is that it helps me get back to my goal and also to thank my internet friends and Sparks for the motivation to get started again on a healthier life style.
