Welcome to the Team. I can only imagine what it was like to bounce up and down for so many years, as my incredible weight gain happened with menopause. But ultimately, we're on the same journey, looking towards the same destination.
Since you did WW, you've got a head start because you already know so much more about good nutrition. I guess the key is consistency. SparkPeople's program should be viewed as a "nutritional lifestyle change" instead of a "diet." It's not something you do for 3 weeks, or 3 months, or until you lose 25 lbs: it's something you do from now on.
I had a challenge when I joined last June, "eating down an unhealthy pantry." But now the Doritos are history, my eternal tubs of sour cream are now tubs of homemade Greek yogurt, and the ice cream's become frozen yogurt--which is pretty good, actually.
So, congratulations to you for starting over one last time! You can really make it last this time!
Life is a Journey, not a Destination. Plan the trip wisely!
