Welcome from Ludington. You in some very good company with people who will support you, encourage you, but never let you give up. Many of us have similar health problems that go along with our weight issues. Amazing how much better we generally feel as the weight starts coming down. Just learn to put yourself first in this instance. And don't let anyone or thing get in your way.....Cris

My gerd problems were greatly relieved by losing weight. I found after 25 pounds I felt better at night. I still have some probs but not as much and feel soooooooooooooo much better. Good luck and dont give up. You can do it. I read spark pages of those who lost over 100 pounds and I didnt need to lose that much so I thought if they can do it I sure can. Have fun doing it!
If you haven't got a smile on your face and laughter in your heart, then you are just a sour old fart!
I have many of the ailments you have because I am obese. It is very difficult. We will all do this together. This website is packed with all sorts of good information for us to use 24/7. I am not making much progress yet but giving up is not an option.
I agree with what Diane7789 said. to Spark and to the team!

Hi everyone. I am new to spark people. I am really hoping that this plan will help me lose weight for good. I have struggled with my weight going up and down for many years. I am now at my heaviest I have ever been. :( I also have had many health problems over the past few years. (fibromyalgia, IBS, GERD, insomnia) I believe some of the meds I take along with stress have caused me to gain weight very rapidly. My goal is to lose 100 lbs. I know it won't happen overnight, but I am really hoping to see some results soon.
