emoticon BACK! I view success at long term weight loss as akin to successful maintaining of sobriety in alcoholism. Like the alcoholic's One Day at a Time lifelong battle to resist alcohol, we who have let food get out of hand, become Master instead of our servant, must keep constant vigilance ever thereafter to keep it in line and avoid it regaining mastery over us. I lost over 90 lbs. year before last and have kept it off with Spark's help. I have much more to lose, but have been steadily rearranging and toning up my body, gaining better health and strength. But the kind of strength you mention I don't have and perhaps never will. I like food too much - good food, and lots of it, and so do all my significant others. Portion distortion is too easy to fall into, tempting hefty food choices too common and too tempting for me to go it alone. Sometimes real strength lies in recognizing our limitations and seeking out help. Thank God Spark affords such excellent help, available whenever we call. Just keep coming back, keep trying, and build other supportive connections - you and I both will achieve our goals! God Bless! emoticon

Hi welcome back. I just joined this team yesterday when they were the featured team but I have been on SP since Jan. I think this will be a life long trip for me too. I have succeeded at dieting and losing weight a number of times, but always gained it back. This time I am taking the scenic route and enjoying myself.

I am not new to SparkPeople. I was able to lose 20 pounds, (which is minimal to what I need to lose) 2 summers ago. I have gained that back, simply because I did not continue to participate several times a day in reading spark articles and tracking my food. I found tremendous strength from reading an article each time when I felt weak. When I started feeling strong enough to not keep tracking is when I started failing. Why do I do that? It's time for me to find some inner strength, so I can feel better. I am so appreciative of the time and effort of those who have created this site and maintain it. I'm only sorry that I have not taken full advantage of such a generous endeavor. I need to start with baby steps again. This will be the perfect forum for that.
