    Now is the time. I am upset with my weight gain. I know what is good nutritionally
    and preach a good line, but what I say and what I do are not the same. I would like
    to get back to my goal of 3 months ago of Vegan Before 6 because I felt better.
    With my diabetes diagnosis, I was trying to combine too many factors, and went back
    to animal protein. I actually craved it. I gained 5 pounds. I am determined to be plant based as much as possible, and need to track carefully. Has anyone else had an experience like this? Today I started a new chapter. - 3/16/2014 9:40:52 AM

  • Ok I've been here a little while and have been losing weight but I have had some problems the last 2 weeks and found out I have a large cyst on my ovary so I am having hysterectomy in a few days. I will have a large incision and Dr says no gym for 3 weeks. I am going to need some help on how to keep up with my motivation and my workouts after this surgery. Does anyone know where I can get some easy workouts to ease into that don't involve my tummy. he says i can do arms or legs to start that don't stretch my tummy. I am so upset about all this I was doing so good and now a set back. I don't want to lose my motivation. Feel free to send me some information or tell me where to find this info. - 3/6/2014 11:11:47 AM

    I am new to this community.. what i am looking for is a guide to make a daily menu plan that will keep me on track of my low carb/low sugar plan. I would like any suggestions on where to find this type of daily menu plan... i find that if i have something that tells me what to eat each day that i can stay on track better. - 2/13/2014 9:47:20 AM

    Hi, I'm Jane and new to Spark People a couple of weeks ago. As of last Sunday's weight-in I am down 8 lbs. I am a recent diabetic and have some heart issues that are new as well. This seems to be working and I need it to. I love the way the site keeps track of everything. It helps me stay focused. - 2/1/2014 1:12:43 PM
    Hello my name Melissa and I am a mother of 5 beautiful kids and was blessed to get to stay home with all of them for 17 years but it took a real toll on my body and mind about myself. I love candy and use it to make everything in my life better it is what i can control when things are outta control. I am so uncomfortable in my own skin know and really need to make some serious changes in how i eat and get myself back for my mental sanity and can't wait to be comfortable in my own skin again. - 1/27/2014 2:47:46 AM
    I'm Cassandra. I need help! I have been fighting my weight all my life, and I'm sick of it. I will be 50 in Dec. and I refuse to enter the next 50 yrs weighing what I do now. Which is the most I've ever weighed in my life. 190. I exercise everyday, eat right, but the weight is not coming off. I am in the early stages of menopause. If there is anyone out there going through the same thing, and have had some success in this area please give me some advice. Thanks - 1/20/2014 7:27:32 PM
