Hi Heather & Welcome back!

Remember taking care of YOU is the most important thing. All the rest will fall into place when you do. You know it.

Sooo, pick a challenge & get to it. Food choices? Cardio? Strength training? Water? Whatever it is, start a new trend & follow through. You will feel so much better...You WILL get there again...& even further if you so choose!

Hi all, my name is Heather.

I previously lost 60 lbs & joined spark people about half way through. Before I lost the weight, I was almost a xenophobe and severely depressed. I got on some meds for my depression and once they started working, I started WW & hiking. I joined spark people after quitting WW mainly due to cost. I was on my way to onederland. Then I started a new career path & became an apprentice electrician. My day was/is filled with physical exertion which increased my appetite. I used that as an excuse to get off track and kept making excuses for the 5 lbs here, 10 lbs there. Now I have gained 40 of those pounds back & weigh 260. I am getting hurt on the job often now & am sure it is related to the weight gain. All that hard work & effort has been wasted. I am back in my old clothes, stopped many of the physical activities that I had come to love and feel my depression creeping up on me again. I am still on my meds, but as I put on more weight, the less I did actively. While the meds help, I need to be active too. So... I am at a tipping point where I am about to lose this new life I worked towards. I simply cannot bear the thought of going back to who I was before. I am back now, to see if I can pull myself up by my bootstraps & get back on track. I don't want more meds & hope that losing weight & getting moving again will prevent me from having to go that route. I don't have time for WW. I go to school 2 nights a week and have to attend other union functions several times a month, so I am back here. I know what I have to do... I did it before, but I need the support of others to do it. It doesn't work for me otherwise.
