Welcome, Butterfly. I'm so sorry about the loss of your son, Michael. I agree with Dale, it helps to do something in his honor. He would be truly proud of you in losing all that weight.
As for me, the support on Spark People has been one of those kick-start things that helped me to lose weight. Keep in touch. Sometimes trying to do everything right can be overwhelming. I picked one thing that needed improving and worked on it until I got it right and it became a habit (like eating vegetables). Then I worked on the next thing on my list (like exercising).

Thanks everyone for a warm and inviting welcome

I look in the mirror see a beautiful woman, see the face of a happy woman, a wonderful wife and great mom. For the first time in my life I am truly happy. My family has gone through hell and back, we have survived and are stronger for it. I know that God loves me and will always be there for all of us. I am also blessed to have great friends and family members. I am truly loved.

Butterfly Brenda,
It's so nice to have you joining us. You've done an amazing job keeping 100 pounds off. Sometimes we just get numb over the tremendous accomplishments we make because we keep looking at what we haven't done.

That you had a great on plan day feels terrific, doesn't it? I also drink something over just picking up food these days and find it extremely effective. I've lost around 25 lbs and have 5 to go. The same principles I just referred to for you apply to me. Stay in a positive AM DOing it state of mind.

As far as losing Michael, that is truly devastating. Now your life has to mean even more to you, in his honor. I hope that eventually you will be able to turn that humongous loss into some valuable purpose for yourself. What do you love to do or wish you could?

Welcome to the team once again. You live in a gorgeous part of the country. I believe we have another member who lives there, too. (Sunny)

Hello, I am Brenda, another one, I will go by butterfly, I have lost a lot of weight, 100 LBS but that last 20 LBS just keeps hanging on. I am 53, retired married going on 28 years, I have a daughter ready to marry her off in October, I lost my son Michael in 2010 in the US Army, Iraq, since then I have been very depressed and barely holding on. I am looking forward to getting back my life. Today was my first truly good day food wise in a long time. I have been a member for a long time mostly just reading and learning.

Today I was able to stay focused and stay on track. I drank all my water. Filling in with liquid when I had an urge to eat between meals. Thank you GOD
