Keeping the weight off is the hardest. Most people regain their weight back in a very short time. I was one of those people for years. Now I am at goal and have kept the weight off for over a year now. I do know now that I have to still be vigilant for the rest of my life. Old habits die hard. Congratulations! All together I lost 34 pounds but it took 3 years to do it as I would lose then gain. DonT ever give up anybody. Be determined. 1498 days ago
As I can't even bring a pint of anything frozen into the house, I'm also a big fan of the fast food small cones. McD's small vanilla is low cal, only 4 WW points plus, and a delicious treat that lasts long after it's finished on my ride home! 1608 days ago

I have just started sparks and am concerned that I will do my usual thing and lose some and start overeating again and gain the weight back . The more tools I am finding on this site the more hopeful I am. 1617 days ago
yes!!! this is why we love SPARKPEOPLE!!! we know how great this website is!! It teaches us to never eat mindless, to be aware of everything that goes into your mouth and how much of it...with no one on top of you judging...only motivating you with their testimonies!! 1618 days ago
I saw her on the Today show & that is what got me started with SparkPeople. Had never heard of this site before. What a great tool! Thank you so much for providing such a wonderful site! Double thank you & big hugs for also providing the very handy iPad / iPhone apps for free! They allow me to enter my meals as I go. No cheating or trying to remember what I ate today. Love how it calcs the calories for me, which was always too a difficult chore for me before!
Kudos to Angela for going on national TV with her story! I would not have gotten started if it were not for her. Also, Congatulations to Angela for her success! Thank you! 1618 days ago
Thanks for replaying that for us who missed it. What an inspiration. You can tell that she has control now. Good for her. I hope some day to reach that ultimate goal, that seems so far away, but it is doable. A Spark friend, Betty (javagal47) 1618 days ago
Great job! I know how hard it is to lose it, but know the benefits of doing so!! I have fibromyalgia which is usually held at bay with regular walking and exercise. I barely suffer the aches from it now. You are amazing and I congratulate you on your success! You are beautiful inside and out! And to meet Kathie Lee Gifford, how was that? I have always admired her.
Dang - you went from no activity to white water kayaking? I loved the tips on how to override those cravings. And the message of overcoming physical effects will really hit home with folks. You.Go.Girl! 1619 days ago
