Hi Mugglez and welcome to a great team with loads of support! I had trouble for years trying to lose weight and last August joined SparkPeople at 191 lbs. It has been a slow, but steady journey for me and I am now within 5 pounds of my goal weight of 145. Our numbers are very similar, aren't they? So, see it can be done and SparkPeople works if you put some time and effort into it.

Good luck! We're here when you need us!

No foods with high fructose corn syrup, sugar, rice syrup, corn syrup, fructose, sucrose etc. in the first three ingredients.

No foods that have more than 3 ingredients that I can not pronounce.

If an item has more than 10 ingredients it is too processed, I will not eat or buy the item.

Wonderful support here. We all need all the help we can get, making this a journey of lifestyle. We have all been or still are weighing more than is in our best interest. Some more than others, but we all need each other. Helpful family and friends and co-workers are great, sometimes we do not get that help, so we seek support here. And help is here. Welcome.

MUGGLEZ, you have done an amazing job losing weight. Yes, you gained some of it back. But, you have come to the right place and this is an awesome team for support. I would recommend staying away or spending less time with the non-supporters. Spend more time with those that support your journey. It helps to come onto SPARKPEOPLE everyday. Get involved and read about other people's journeys. Jump in with both feet and offer some advice or support to someone else that needs it too. This is a great time of year to start turning things around. Take care, and love yourself!

Hi, I'm Mugglez. Had RNY surgery in 2009, dropped 154lbs then due to stress, emotional eating, working long hours and no exercise I've gained 40lbs. Suffering from depression, anxiety, PTSD. Married 11 years with two golden retrievers. I can no longer get to my support group (2hrs away) and while we're online it isn't the same as getting face to face with the people that started supporting me back in 2008. I'm looking for some motivation to get moving, find another way of coping besides eating... and learning to not beat myself up for the 40lb weight gain. I have a major sabboteur in my family (my mother) and while I don't live with her, suffice it to say that when I was at my lowest weight she accused me of pushing my weight loss in her face when I spoke about where I was in my journey and my feelings. She had lost 250lbs back in the 80's after having a gastroplasty (stomach stapling). She gained back 50lbs and has been at the same weight for almost two decades. My father kept calling her an ugly slag or hag and then after my success she did that to me one Christmas. With my struggles, I eat to feel good and its been that way my whole life. Now even my mother is pushing food on me telling me I'm obsessing on what I'm eating. Even after the 40lbs gain I call myself fat and she says I'm finally looking normal. Well when you're 4'10" and weight 187lbs that isn't normal... My husband is a great support as is his family. I have friends who are as well including one friend who followed me into surgery and who is struggling not to lose more... and has n fact lost more than the surgeon is comfy with. I'm looking to SPARKPEOPLE to help me gain my confidence, my self-respect, and a way to cope with wanting to eat everything. The stress isn't going to go away for a few years... it is out of my control. But the eating is... I found IndyGirl to be very inspiring... and I'm hoping I can turn myself around too.
