Welcome Julia! I'm so glad you're here! I have struggled like you for many years, many on this team have also, and I have lost 36 lbs since September, but I couldn't have done it without the help and support of this team!!!! When I am having a rough day, I come to Sparkpeople, idk what Id do without the wonderful, supportive people here!! So I hope to see you around and get to know you better :)
Hello all. My name is Julia, I will be 56 this year (!!) and I live in Portugal.
I've been struggling to lose about half my body weight for what seems like forever - all I seem to do is lose a little and then put it back on again, can't seem to stick with it and get to my goal. I need to commit to it, though, as I am beginning to have pain in my hips and can't let it get to the point where it keeps me from working in the garden - we need the vegetables and fruit we grow. I am very lucky not to have any mobility or other health problems but I'm struggling with the mental challenge of focusing on making the right choices every day.
