I am still in here and wishing I would have as good of success as I did the first time around. I had lost 50 pounds and then DH got ill and it was a life changing experience. We had to completely change the way we ate and that gave me all kinds of problems as we could not have a lot of the fruits or veggies that we both like since he could no longer have them. That was 3 years ago and since then I have gooten back to tracking both foods and exercise. He now can have a few of the veggies but not very much because of his kidney failure. But he has learned how to not eat them while I am eating them. I still try and not prepare them to often so he is not tempted.
This time around I have lost almost 20 pounds after gaining all the 50 I had lost before back. I try and get in a lot of walking and now have a Wii game that helps not only me but keeps him a bit more active playing some of the games.
I am glad to have Sp because of all the friendships it has brought to me. With DH being at home and not working and me only working PT to care for him SP has been a life line to the outside sometimes.
I am so glad to have SP to fall on and to stay accountable to. If SP was not here I know it would be so much harder to keep motivated! Right now I am on a 5% challenge team and even though I have not made the 5% in weight loss I have lost each challenge. That team really rocks for motivation!
