Coming back to SP and this team after being here on and off for several years. I can sympathize with you on the yoyo dieting and losing/gaining weight over the years. It's frustrating. Guess the best thing I have found that helps is the kind of support and motivation that you get here on SP. Definitely a slow loser so am glad to be back and trying to do it right this time. Good luck. You have lots of company here!

Welcome to SP and to the team! I can so identify with you - even though I didn't gain weight until I was in my 40's - but ever since then it's been you-you dieting for me too. I'm still struggling, but determined that 2012 is going to be the year I reach my goal, and maintain it!!

I am healthier and stronger since joining SP - but still working towards my goal.

I know we can do it.... we just need to make up our minds and be consistent!!

Good luck and happy Sparking!!

Welcome, just know that you are not alone. It seems as though I've been dieting all my life. Hopefully, this time it will work as it now is a way of life. You can do it. Good luck.

They say it is better to be poor and happy than rich and miserable, but how about a compromise like moderately rich and just moody?

Hi Laura and emoticon .

I totally know where you are coming from. I started "dieting" at 14 when I was 5'2" and 165 pounds. I dieted for years. Last Aug (2011) I discovered Spark People and learned that diet is the nasty word I had thought it to be. Until I decided to make a healthy "lifestyle change" in my eating I couldn't keep the weight off.

Stick with us. We are a great group who will encourage you, give advice when asked for and help you on your healthy lifestyle change.
