The sad reality is that very few actually do. Why is this? I had lost nearly 100lbs and felt amazing in the first 4 months I joined spark....then slowly but surely I gained....now over 3 years later I gained all back and then some....what is the answer? I need to do this, but it is so darn hard.

I love this site but it's kind of hard to keep track of my supplements, because I am either to way over in proteins and vitamins, and way under in carbs. I realize that I need to make adjustments, but I am not sure how to do this. If someone knows of a different site like this where people who had gastric bypass can access it I would greatly appreciate it :) Mahalo (Thanks) ukismom Wed, 23 Feb 2011 21:11:53 EST 11 things for 2011: Let's Recommit! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x26812x38873558 Hi, team!

My goals; lose weight (100 lbs would be good) and begin to live a healthier life style, not only do "I" deserve to live a LONG life, but my 6-yr old son deserves to have his mom around for A LONG TIME!!! I hope to get moving and keep it going! <BR> <BR> Hope you all have a fantastic day. <BR> <BR> Smiles, <BR> Joy Sat, 26 Jun 2010 00:04:59 EST NSV http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x26812x34756722 A team member on another team of mine (WAUSUP) wrote a blog about deciding to track NSV's (non scale victories) I was so taken with the idea that I started a thread on that team to invite the whole team to note daily NSV's. I thought it might be something worthwhile for us to do here too. <BR> <BR> I'm starting it off with the NSV that my slacks that I wanted to wear to an upcoming wedding are too big. Now that's a non scale related victory! Sat, 12 Jun 2010 14:05:02 EST Want to swim with my kids! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x26812x34659306 Hi everyone!

I used to be very athletic and in shape, but time, work, family, stress, etc have all taken a hard toll on my body and my attitude. I will lose 40 pounds by Christmas and will be very excited to take my kids to swim lessons next summer and jump in the pool with them! Thank you all for being here for...

I can do it by just taking baby steps each and every day and to realized I am not perfect and I will make mistakes but you have to get back up and keep moving forward?

Sun, 25 Jan 2009 23:34:49 EST Hi! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x26812x22253753 Hi everyone! <BR> I just started this and have about50 lbs to lose. I am 26, just married in august 2008 and graduated from seminary in May 2008. I want to lose weight to be healthy, especially when my husband and I start a family! I am an emotional eater, I eat when I stressed or not feeling good, so just knowing that helps some but I need more help!!
