Well, I don't know if you just joined, but you have your sparkpage set to where we can't see anything or make comments to you. check your sets and make sure they are the way you want them.
I too have went sown the road you have gone down. I even had gastric bypass surgery. I only lost about 80 and was still over weight. i started gaining weight back so I seen that It was going to take old fashion hard work to get healthy and change my lifestyle for life. I have lost 40lbs since I have been a Spark member. I love the support that I can get here. It does make a difference. So feel free to add me as a friend. I can't do that for you because of the settings on your page.
Weight loss surgery is stomach surgery, NOT Mind surgery.
Change the MIND AND Change the BODY
MAKE UP YOUR MIND You are NOT going to Quit
You are NOT going to Sit
MAKE UP YOUR MIND You are going to GET UP and GET MOVING !!!!

I just wanted to say hello to everyone and introduce myself. My name is Janice and I've been a member of Sparkpeople for a couple of years, however I never took advantage of all that this site has to offer. Instead, I chose to do the quick weight-loss starvation diets to loose weight. First, let me back up, I had gastric-bypass surgery in January of 2004. I lost 122 lbs, and as of today I have put all but 27 lbs back on. Sooo, when all attempts to do the fad diets only resulted in me gaining the weight back on, I realized that I needed to change my relationship with food for any lasting results. The surgery and the fad diets are only temporary if you don't learn how to eat healthy and have a healthy relationship with food. LOL. So, that's my story.
One final note, I have two young boys ages 9 & 11 (he'll be 12 Feb. 6th) who are both over 200 lbs, and we as a family are going to get our weight to a healthy weight. I need help and encouragement when it comes to my children!
I just keep reminding myself: One day at a time One pound at a time And before you know it, You've reached your goal!
