It is a bit depressing re-logging into my Spark account and facing up to just how much progress I had made, and then threw away but that makes me more determined to regain that level of fitness.
I made 2013 the year that I'll lose the weight I gained.
I dropped my weight originally from 256lb to 150lb, and then ballooned back to 226lb, mostly through depression, though now after putting an effort in this year I've managed to drop from 225lb down to 180lb.
Knowing you've been here before puts a dampener on any progress I'm making, but it is progress, and hopefully when I start losing weight under what I reached I'll finally stop beating myself up so much!
Hi, I have also been here before, unfortunately I ended up weighing more than when I started. I decided to delete my old account & start again. Diet wise I'm doing better, it's the exercise part I need to get to grips with. Maybe we can all help each other? I will accept all friend requests.
I also have been here before. I did really well last year and then fell off the wagon following my granddad passing away. I am now focused on achieving my goals and am bringing the other half along too- albeit a bit reluctantly! He is not too impressed with the 4 mile walk planned for this afternoon!!!
Good luck to you all,

I have been on this site a while and I lost a lot of weight last year but regained it. The latter half of 2012 was a disaster (emotion-wise and also health wise!) so I am re-starting my programme as of yesterday. Anyone want to join me? I am looking for sparkfriends to keep me motivated. My profile is private but I do accept all friend requests. Contact me if you want to be unstoppable in 2013!
Happy new year to all of you
