Mindy ask them about the Lap band process. A friend of mine has had that and it is not as hard as the bypass surgery. She has lost well over 150 now. Anna

Hi Mindy, Welcome. Glad you are giving it another start. That is kudos for you.
I myself lost forty pounds last year and have gained it all back plus a few. I know that for myself I have to keep a food dairy. (Not that great on computers but I also need to see the food written down infront of me so I can't "forget" a food I have eaten!
As some one else said, start slow and build. Do the water thing, maybe a food dairy and take it one step at a time.
Keep in touch and let us know how you are doing and what we can do to help you.
When you have time, do a Spark page, you don't have to put pictures of yourself up but I find it helps people relate to you better and people find it easier to reach out to you.
Best wishes on you weight loss journey and finding a healthier you!!

No foods with high fructose corn syrup, sugar, rice syrup, corn syrup, fructose, sucrose etc. in the first three ingredients.

No foods that have more than 3 ingredients that I can not pronounce.

If an item has more than 10 ingredients it is too processed, I will not eat or buy the item.

Welcome Mindy! This is an awesome team. Everyone offers lots of support, sympathy, and encouragement to each other. One of the main thoughts is that tomorrow is another day and to take baby steps. The weight didn't appear over night and unfortunately it won't go away overnight either. Just remember we all care about each other and offer each other positive support. Marcie

Hi Mindy, welcome back.

I'm sort of restarting myself after being derailed for a week due to plumbing issues in my house and having to eat out for a week, something I struggle with.

Hi Mindy, nice to meet you.
I would advise you not to try to do too much at once and overwhelm yourself.
I started my just learning to drink 8 glasses of water a day ( now on 10), eat at least 5 fruit and veg and start moving more.gradually I have built up from there. I also track my food on the nutrition tracker,can be a shock at first exactly how much we are eating.
good luck with your spark journey, any questions,just ask, someone will know.
If you want to set up a spark page we can all get to know you better

Good Morning!
A bit about myself. I found and started SP in May and fell after a few weeks. I am about to start going through stages to find out if I am a candidate for bypass surgery. I have anywhere from 150lbs-200lbs to loose. I'm again this morning starting my SP plan. I am looking for strong support, suggestion and friendship.
Thanks!
