Welcome to the group! You are definitely not the only one who struggles with getting the pounds to stay off. There's lots of support here. Just adopt a program and stick with it. Tracking food and activity is easier on Spark than anywhere else I have found. Good luck as you adapt to the program. You're sure to have success!
Best wishes on your journey.

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

I understand your frustration. I'm coming up on my 1 year Spark anniversary and I definitely have not lost the weight I had hoped, but if I've learned nothing else, it's to be consistant. All the successful members have said not to give up and to be consistant with you're plan, the rest will follow. I'm counting on the fact that all those people can't be wrong.
Welcome to our team. There's lots of support here.
After reading THE SPARK and noting all those who lost several pounds in the first two weeks by making a few small changes, I have been very discouraged. I have been logging, exercising daily, and cooking (something I hate doing) and GAINED 2 pounds after a month of consistent effort. So I saw this group. Maybe this is the place for me!
