Welcome. Good to have you here with us. This site is about changing your thinking about food and exercise and making new habits. If you work through some of the challenges, you might even find your tastes in food changing. It's important to go at it step by step, continue doing what you do, but make little changes, then more little changes. They add up to a sustainable healthy lifestyle. Most importantly, don't give up.

Achieve success in any area of life by identifying the optimum strategies and repeating them until they become habit - Charles Givens

welcome to both of you. Over a period of 2 years I've lost some weight but lately having a real hard time of it but must get back on track. What helps me is setting small achievable goals (lose 10 lbs. in next 2 months rather than lose 70 lbs. by fall) and I'm trying to achieve a change of lifestyle rather than a successful diet in the hopes that by changing not only my eating habits but regular exercise etc. that it might help. Good luck on your journey.

Lost 48 lbs. in 2012 & 13 but gained 30 back!

HI! I'm new to SparksPeople, and still learning my way around. It seems to be a bit more comprehensive than MyFitnessPal, which I have used in the past. I recently had a TIA (mini-stroke), and among some new medicines I need to take I was advised by my doctors to lose weight and exercise. I've done this moderately successfully in the past (via WW) only to have it all come back with a vengeance. Needless to say my thinking of I'd like to lose weight and exercise more, has become I must lose weight and exercise to live a longer and more energetic life. I view it as a gentle slap in the face by God saying ok get your act together now!

Currently I weigh 236 pounds, and I need to weigh 165lbs to be at the top range of a healthy weight for my size. I've not been there in more than 1 1/2 decades.

We have a 15 year old and an 11 year old, and someday many, many years from now I want to be able to enjoy my grandkids company too.

I'm extremely grateful to have a supportive wife who is doing all she can to help me make healthier choices. I know I've heard in many places how helpful it is to have community support for losing weight and keeping it off. This was something that was helpful to me when I was on WW years ago. That is why I am here on this message board now.

Good luck and good fortune to us all on this journey!
