So I got an invite for this group and it hit me, just like most groups on here at least the better ones it stated "for women". Now either my name "i am x" sounds more feminine than I thought or my man card has just been flushed. So my thought is "when in Rome" :) <BR> <BR> So can I join ? I could really use the whole "revamp yourself" mentality now. I am about 480lbs on a good day and just need to find focus and support, OMG its has come to this I sound like a diatribe for a bra commercial (... Thu, 22 Sep 2011 12:46:13 EST elp... Hey Everyone, <BR> <BR> I'm hitting my head against the wall. My boyfriend and I are fighting. I'm on the verge of giving up and calling it quits. I can't wake up to go to the gym early and then at night there never seems to be enough time. I work insane hours. I work at Lane Bryant (a store some of us know too well) and I really do enjoy it. I pick up as many hours as I can for A) the Beefy Pay Check and B) it makes me be out of the house and makes me moving. I don't know what to do. <BR>... Wed, 21 Sep 2011 12:56:44 EST Hi Im Kim! I used to be on sparkteens but since i turned 18 i decided to get a spark people and so far ive been doing way better on this than i did on sparkteens. I think its cause I have more time to actually log in and get the motivation i need to stay focused. I really hope i stay at this positive mind set and don't let setbacks get to me. I am prone to letting that happen, thats what has hurt me in the past with weight loss. Speaking of my goal is initially loose 50 pounds, but over all its to find ...

I look forward to the day I can get all my stuff in that part of the store. <BR> I want to feel good in my skin and like what looks back at me in the mirror. Sun, 18 Sep 2011 21:30:46 EST Hi I'm Jess I'm new to the team, but not to Spark...I've tried numerous times to lose the weight, and lose about 20 and then gain it back, in addition to the 20 pounds I've lost and kept off for over two years now. I'm determined to do it this time, and although Spark advises against diet supplements, my dr has suggested I take Alli, so I just started it a week ago. Feel free to add me as a SparkFriend Sun, 18 Sep 2011 19:53:55 EST Diet Tips! I would recommend not eating after 5-6 o'clock for good weight loss results!

Mon, 12 Sep 2011 00:36:27 EST Past diets!! I've done slimming world, slim fast, slimming pills, grapefruit diet and weight watchers for short periods without much luck. The only time I lost weight in the past was when I half starved myself and the weight fell off but I didn't have much to lose and had a very physical job at the time. What diets has everyone done in the past and have they worked? Sat, 10 Sep 2011 17:06:37 EST Do you have any health conditions? I suffer with anxiety and depression and I have recently started taking anti depressants and depol injection for this. Thankfully the medication doesn't cause weight gain and I asked my doctor specifically for something that would not affect weight. Apart from this I am pretty healthy physically and do my best to stay in shape but I'm no athlete, just a beginner in the fitness stakes but I will be joining a gym shortly. <BR> <BR> Does anyone have health conditions to deal with and how do the...

My husband doesn't really buy that much of it nowadays because he is watching his figure too so it might just be once a week when the temptation is there. I plan to control this by not feeling guilty and holding my hands up when I do treat myself and then I can enjoy a treat and not fall off the wagon because of it. So its ok to treat myself to these every now and then, its allowed, lol!!! <BR> <BR> What is your weakness (Shoes, wine, lottery, shoppi... Sat, 10 Sep 2011 16:54:35 EST What is your best speed food?
