Good luck with your endeavor! I am in the same boat in that I keep trying to loose the weight and keep it off. We all need to encourage one another! I just started Spark right after the new year...

Welcome back, Alex! It's nice that you and your wife will be doing this together. Hopefully, that will make it easier for both of you.

Best wishes!

Hello All,
It has been a while since I was last active on the boards. I joined Spark People almost 2 years ago (it might have been longer than that. I worked hard and lost over 40 lbs! I was really excited but I did not have the push to keep it off :( So here I am back at the weight I was at over 2 years ago! I recently got married (Dec 29th) and I have been thinking about starting the new lifestyle again. Now I am ready and I have a partner willing to take up the process with me.
We started this week trying to just become aware of our calorie intake and not eating out. We have gone 4 days of no eating out and I am very proud of that step! Next is starting to lower our calorie intake and start working out. Next week I will be going to the local gym and getting a trial membership and starting that process again. My only fear is since my wife and I are on different work schedules we may not go work out so I have also begun the process of trying to find someone to work out with!
I am currently just over 280 lbs and I want to get down to below 200 lbs! Every time I hit a significant number I say oh 10 more lbs is fat I am not. Lets face it people I am FAT and I do not want to be fat anymore! That is why I am hear and why I am deciding that I want to lose weight! This website has helped me in the past and I know it will again!

Thank You,
