Hi and Welcome,

Sparks is a wonderful site and the people are very supportive. Here are a few hints to help:

When your busy, (or when you get discouraged, every once in a while it happens) Try doing some small things to keep you on track.

Post-it notes with taped on pencils.... On the cupboard where your plates are.... put up a post-it note and a pencil...and put a mark for every serving of vegetables or fruits you have each day. Put a post-it on the fridge and mark off waters, juices or sodas, and other one for "moving your body".

Hash marks are a quick and easy way to keep some kind of track of what you're are doing and eating. and it's not as complicated or time consuming as logging all the foods and calories. Don't get me wrong...It's not as "good" as keeping a full account, but when time is scarce, or your just having a bad spell, it's better than nothing.

Also, here are some links to what is offered here:

And, remember to have patience with yourself.

I have dealt with obesity issues since I have been six years old and now Im what you might say is midlife. (Age is a relative number to me, my mother had a philosophy your'e not old until you want to be) I am coming here now because I did get what has been for me a godsend, a lap band in 2004. It helped me get 145 lbs off and keep them off for the first time ever for more than a year. This was the fifth time I lost more than a 100 lbs in my life as well. However, the journey needs to get going again as I just let it stop after l I had further surgery and gained about 15 back. I need some accountability and am ready for it and ready to interact online again. I also feel I have a lot of knowledge that I can also share.
