I've been there too and lost weight and had a set back that caused me to gain most of it back. I've lost about 12 pounds in less than a month now. I know some of the earlier was water weight, and now what I'm losing is actually fat. But I believe that we both have what we need to do this and it can be done! Don't give up!

I'm back.:) I had moderate success with weight loss a couple years ago with the help of this website. I started at 206 and went down to 172. My goal weight was 154. I lost focus after beginning a new relationship (which eventually led to marriage in July of 2012). It's kind of been downhill ever since. I crept back up to 206 which seems to be where my body says enough is enough! This is the point where I can only fit a few articles of clothing in my wardrobe and I'm a person who will not buy larger sizes to accommodate my growing size. Therefore, it's time to work back off the weight. I also have the motivation of my sister in law's wedding coming in June. My bridesmaid dress was purchased in August of last year and after 2 wedding date push backs, I can no longer fit it. 20 pounds must go by June 14 so I am on a mission. I need to be in the midst of motivated people so this time around on Spark, I'll participate more in the community and we'll work together to encourage one another! Thanks for reading!
