Welcome Sheila! Don't feel bad. I lost 35 lbs. in 2007 and gained it back plus four more. I'm back on track and this time it's going to stay gone.

You can do it! We're all here to support each other.
Have a great day! God bless.

Welcome to the team! I think slow and steady progress is more likely to build in long-term healthy habits.

I just read this in a book by Andrew Weil MD -

"Attempting to quit (an addiction) is commitment to changing behavior,a measure of motivation, and weather you succeed or fail is less important than making the attempt".

It goes on to talk about motivation and final success.....

ANYWAY, hello and welcome!

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.

Diet? Really? I thought it was 'Choc'! emoticon

Welcome to the group Sheila! My personal belief is that you are far more likely to keep it off if you take it slow and steady, so this is a great team to join!
Hugs,
Lex xxx

Hi Snugbean =]

emoticon This is a wonderful team with emoticon that have learned the hard way but come to realize that diet is the worst four-letter-word you can use. Again welcome to a new life style emoticon

Exercise 1st... Spark 2nd. Works for me!

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't I give myself reasons why I can.

Tired of starting over? Stop giving up!!

NEVER QUIT =]

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.
