**UPDATED 07.18.19** My highest weight was 234 lbs (Nov, 2015) and my lowest was 130 (until Sep, 2018). My current weight is 157 lbs, so I have gained 27 lbs in the 10 months since then. I'm not 100% sure of all the reasons for this weight gain, but I do know that I pretty much stopped exercising, started eating way more sugary foods than I had since my WLS in Nov, 2015, and pretty much just stopped caring about or doing anything for my nutrition. I guess I could say I had a bit of a "relapse". I am, however, 100% sure that being a part of SparkPeople will definitely get me back on track, and I will be losing weight again instead of gaining it!! I am so excited and am truly grateful for SparkPeople.com, the coaches, and all of you wonderful members!!! I have gained and lost then gained weight so many times all throughout my life, and I'm finally just sick of the up and down thing. I have a lot of knowledge, through research and personal experience, but I just haven't seemed to be able to make it work for me now. I am really excited about getting back to Spark People, as I know this is a perfect place for me!
