emoticon glad you are joining us on this journey to a healthy lifestyle. I have had to learn to eat regular food and stay within my daily allotment. It's not easy, I did not know what empty or full was. I keep eating until it was gone, and ate whenever food was there. It works, when I learned potions and to stop before I was full.

Lord, bless my diet buddies and help me met my weight goals

General rule of thumb, when what you have been doing just isn't working, then you probably ought to try something different! What I have been currently doing just isn't working for getting the weight back off. I say back off, because I had lost 150 lbs after bariatric surgery. I still to this day am so thankful that I took that route as I am not certain that I would have been able to get to where I am even now. Over this last couple of years we made huge changes, moving from Oregon to Southern California, I finished my Masters in Nursing, got a new job, moved several times, even became a grandparent. As a nurse who moved to an entirely new venue, I ended up working night shift for a year; add on the first 30 lbs. Then managed to pack on 30 more with the last part of my schooling, parked in front of a computer and eating way too much!

I have tried a variety of options to get the weight back off and have added exercise as well. After reading about Sparkpeople in a magazine article, I decided to check it out. A couple of tips resonated with me; measuring my food to be sure that I am actually accurately counting calories, and earning points for various positive behaviors. Can't help myself, I still like the grade school star motivates me :)! My only fear with this program is the vulnerability I feel opening up on line about my life and struggles. I have decided though that it is worth it, to get back to a healthier, happier me.

Never Give Up!
