Welcome to Spark, Lei. I've been here off and on for 6 years. I initially lost 15 and I've kept that off. Since then, I've lost a few more only to gain it back, lose it again, and gain it back. I struggle with motivation, as I'm sure everyone does to a degree.
I want to be an RN (2nd career) and am currently saving money so I can afford to quit my job and go to school full time. Only one more pre-req needed and I'm enrolled to start that in January.
It takes quite a while to explore all of the possibilities of weightloss and figure out what works for you, which is why the teams here are so nice...everyone is on a similar, yet slightly different journey. Some people absolutely love to exercise (I hate it), others struggle with food (my habits are fairly decent to begin with). You'll find people whom you have much in common with and you'll find yourself not only discussing food and exercise but also discussing "off-topic" things such as ranting about work or family or the idiot that cut you off on your way to work (personal experience from this morning). This site can be a stress-reliever because sometimes you can vent here to people who "get it".....REALLY get it....more so than at work or home.
I wish you all the best on your journey!! It's a lifelong journey, not a short trip.
