In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian
Since I joined Sparkpeople years ago, I managed to get off 50 lbs. and have kept it off. You WILL do it.....but you must commit to coming here every day, tracking your foods, and exercising. Don't be in a hurry, slow is better.....everything good takes time!
MY NEW saying: (borrowed from Delila)
"If you want to do something, you'll find a way, if you don't, you'll find an excuse."
Welcome, TAW605! Spark People has all the tools, information and support that you need to achieve your goal of losing weight, and, hopefully, getting off the meds. Using the nutrition tracker can help you keep your calorie intake where it should be, and there are many helpful articles here to help you learn a healthier way of eating and living in general. Start a new topic on the message boards, or jump in on any discussions that interest you. I'd also encourage you to take a few minutes to set up your own "Spark Page," which will give other members a chance to get to know you a bit better, as well as making it possible for us to send you "Spark Goodies" from time to time!
Best wishes for achieving your goals -- we are here to help!
