Thanks all! I've been off a week, I think. Hard to track that way! Thanks for welcoming me and your faith and suggestions! Anne you've helped my flagging motivation by saying I can do this! And yes, my doctors are very encouraged by my previous weight loss, motivating me to do more. In fact, yesterday was talking w/GYN whose daughter is gluten and milk sensitive and how much better they've been feeling without them and without as many processed foods. I've lost and maintained a 25 pound weight loss over the last 4 years. Those times, however, I didn't do it on purpose. Now that I'm trying purposely to lose weight I'm gaining muscle (fantastic!) but I'm not losing weight.
We are all in process...

Could you lose 100 pounds? If you have to lose, and the meds you're taking don't interfere with the process, yes! you could lose it. Since you're taking meds, do you have clearance from your doctor to lose weight and/or exercise?

Hi all, still new to SparkPeople & learning more each day. My husband does the grocery shopping. Our elder son has been vegan for more than a year and he has helped us become much more aware of organic and healthy eating, e.g. as little processed food as possible. I want to learn more for the health of all of us. So glad to have found this group! Also, I take at least 10 different meds a day - nothing frivolous that could be dropped. I felt hopeful reading the post of the woman who lost 101 lbs and could eliminate some medicines! Could that really happen for me? I wonder...
