Hi and welcome! Sparks is a great support network, so look around and find some teams you'd like to join. Like Claireese said, the challenges do help. You're young, so should do well. I love sweets too, they are definitely my downfall. I will a lot of time have a piece of candy in the 40-calorie range after dinner. Be faithful in your tracking, it helps a lot. Good luck to you.

Hi, and thanks for the welcome.

I think I might try the gum thing. I like to have dessert after dinner. I've had to cut that out since starting to count calories, and I'm going nuts!

I'm having pizza today, but I know how many slices I can have to keep within my diet, and I've saved calories from earlier in the day, so I SHOULD be able to have it without going over. The problem is that there is nothing better than a chocolate chip cookie after pizza!

emoticon to the Spark of ND Team. Gets a little quiet on here but so glad you have joined us. Ohh how I can relate to LOVING pizza!! I pray I never become celiac like my mother because I wouldn't get pizza, the real stuff. I like vsweets too, especially after meals but I have disciplined myself and eat occasionally. After my meals and cravings for sweets I chew sugarless gum. I like the Ice Breakers Ice Cubes peppermint and bubble breeze. Sugarless gum has really helped me keep away from desserts and chocolate...love chocolate. I wish you lots of luck on your journey to healthy living with Sparks. I too found Sparks just by googling and I've been here since 2006. Getting involved on challenges is what works for me. Hope to see you on threads and forums. Don't give up on yourself...just keep putting one foot in front of the other. Have a great week!

Hi!

I'm not sure what to write in here. I'm 31. I have a bad marriage that helped me stress eat and push my weight up to 280+ pounds. I dropped 60 (quickly) following my divorce, and have recently put back 10 of that. I don't want it back! I want it gone, and I want to feel better about myself.

Most of the time, when I start feeling bad about my weight, I just eat more. I refuse to let that happen again. I found this site while googling the question "Is a cheat day bad for a diet?" It turns out that it isn't! That will make this much easier on me because I loooove pizza and sugar.

I joined SP because I know that if I really want to do this (and I really, really do) I need to have some support from outside myself.

Thanks for listening to my rambling!
