Hi Michelle and to the team. I think most of us are far too familiar with yo-yo dieting, but as you said, time for a life change no more dieting. Take one step at a time, one pound at a time and you'll be well on your way to making a new healthy life for yourself.
Lots of knowledgeable, helpful and supportive people here and some amazing tools, such as the nutrition and fitness trackers, here on Spark. I am looking forward to getting to know you.
To give freely without expectation is a true gift.

Hi Michelle! Happy to know you haven't given up and are still working to figure out how to make this work for a lifetime. :) it all takes time. Eventually it will click.
Get involved in a couple of your teams. The motivation that comes with the people here is amazing.

My name is Michelle and I am from Pennsylvania. I am back on the wagon. I am frustrated with losing, gaining, all the yo-yo dieting. I am working on changing my mind set , with the way I think about food and change my approach to a way of life not a diet. But as a lot of you know easier said than done.I look forward to corresponding with you all.
