Feb. 2011 - I left Spark People in 2009 after enjoying some success with weight loss and felt that I was on the road to more loss and could do it without the daily logins and the support. I was wrong! Slowly, I slid back to old, unproductive habits and gained back all of the weight that I had lost and a few extra pounds to boot! I am back and determined to make the changes permanent this time! All help and support is greatly appreciated. Welcome all Spark Buddies!
March 2008 - Hi, I'm Sue a new Sparkie in Feb 2008. I have had weight problems all of my adult years, gaining 90 pounds since college. All of my attempts at weight loss have been short-lived and temporary. In the last year I have fought through grueling surgeries and treatment for breast cancer (this was my second time - 1st diagnosis 12 years ago) the loss of my beloved mother, and my final baby heading off to college. I got through it all with a strength that I never knew I had. I decided that if I could do that then I could handle my weight as well. Finding Spark People has been a true blessing! My first goal (I want to handle it in small doses - keep the motivation strong) is to lose 37 pounds by May so that I can truly enjoy a very special trip to Europe with my husband. Looking forward to the experience with all of you wonderful, supportive Sparkies!

    Welcome back. I had a very similar experience. I let stress derail me when my husbands health issues popped up. However, I got back to SP before I had gained it ALL back, I only gained back 45 of the 50 pounds I had lost. I have found that if I don't stay active on SP and weigh and measure my food I have a tendency to eat larger portions and the weight starts to come back on.

    So glad you are back with us.

    I have been on spark, and it has been very helpful thru the past year of surgery, and problems. Here's to a happy healthy new year!

    Hi ... thanks for visiting my page. Your Riley is cute! We love this breed, I can't imagine life without our Stella. Do join the group, there may only be a few, but it should start somewhere. ;)

    I can so relate to not wanting to keep up with the daily logins and all those points and stuff to keep track of. It's a lot of work and there are so many other things to do instead. But I will need to recommit and I am stalling on weight loss. Just a matter of making that commitment a priority.

    Welcome back.
