I have been overweight for a very long time. My highest weight was 335 lbs. I lost 65 lbs several years ago and have not been able to progress below 270. I keep bouncing between 270 and 290 lbs. I'm realy tired of it and want to break the cycle that I have been on for years. Last year was hard, I had cancer, 5 surgeries and 6 months of chemo. I was so sick from the chemo that the doctors canceled my last 3 treatments. Now that I am back on my feet I feel that I am ready to do this. Soooo.....

Last week I went onto the internet to find diet help. I was thinking about jouning WW again. But I failed so many times with that diet (no falt of WW it was all me) I just could not bring myself to repeating the insanitity one more time. I came across Sparkpeople in my quest for help. I was not sure what it was about and being so lost in what to do I chose the handle Lost4now hoping that I would not be lost4long. The way that the site is set up is amazing. I don't have to tell you that you know it. I am amazed at all of the tool and help that you get if you want it.

I just finished my first week with Sparkpeople and I lost 3 lbs. I am looking forward to keeping my weight loss going and with the help of all of you and Sparkpeople I am on my way.

    I just wanted to say hi and tell you that even though I've been away from SP for the past several months (bogged down with work and stress) I am looking forward to ending the mighty-year-of-challenges that has plagued me this past year and start fresh soon... I may be still a bit scarce around here for the next little while but I did want to let you know that I've been thinking of you and hope you are doing well in life, in happiness, and in your journey.
