"A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government."
"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. " Thomas Jefferson

to the team. Do not be embarrassed that you regained the weight you lost. We have all done that at sometime - instead be proud of yourself for being strong enough to start again - this time as a life change, not a diet.

Hi everyone! I'm Sheila and have been on Spark off and on. I lost 42 pounds in 3.5 months in 2009 only to gain it all back again. I was ashamed and tried to come back a few times but just couldn't get back into it.
I really like the idea of the slow approach. I tend to go for the all or nothing way and always suffer for it. This weight loss needs to be a part of my life but not the only thing. I am looking for balance and healthy living.
Glad I found this group. I look forward to getting to know you all.
