I started with SparkPeople back in '06 and lost 88 pounds. I lost motivation and gained back 60 of them. Then last June I started Weight Watchers and lost 23 pounds, but then we went on a cruise and I've had trouble getting back on track. Could no longer afford WW so am back with SparkPeople.
I'm 57 and have been battling my weight since I was 6 and got my tonsils out. After that I ate the same but kept gaining and gaining. I've been on a "diet" my entire life. I've never managed to get to goal always about 50 pounds from it.
I AM encouraged though because I A) Didn't gain ALL the weight back, plus some, and B) Maintained that weight for a couple of years. So not as out of control as I have been in the past.
I realize that this is a way of life that I am going to have to do for the rest of my life. There is no going back as all the weight will come back as well.
So here I am again!
