Welcome to SP and remember it's not a diet, but a lifestyle.

Good luck! I'm starting again too. It can be hard, but it's worth it.

emoticon Welcome to Spark. You have taken an important step on your journey by joining!
I've been a member a little more than two years. I made fantastic progress and lost 100 pounds in the first year BUT I became careless about nutrition and exercise and have gained a lot of the pounds back! I became disgusted with myself and closed my Spark account, but soon realized I NEEDED to be here. I'm back using the nutrition and exercise trackers now - they are so important. The sense of community and the friendships I have made here keep me going!
Explore the site, make your Sparkpage if you haven�t, join teams, and make friends. You will find this site an amazing place full of encouragement, inspiration, advice, and support.
Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with.
Good luck!

So here I am, age 42, starting my weight loss journey AGAIN. I have gained and lost so many times it's hard to count. The last time was about 7 years ago I lost nearly 75 pounds, going from 250 to 177 in a matter of about 7 months, I worked out on the eliptical EVERY day for 1-1.5 hours, did weights, watched what I ate and damn I felt good. My gym started going to hell in a hand-basket and I slowly stopped going, I hate walking on pavement, it hurts. I found an amazing man (the huge weight loss came after a divorce) and got married, I had to lose 20 pounds in 3 months to fit in my dress and I did it. 3 years ago I gave birth to my 4th child (his first) and she had such severe weight issues I fell into a deep depression and gained nearly ALL of it back. I am now 244 and sick of feeling/looking like this. I have tremendous heel pain but I am pushing through it with stretching, ice. I WANT to be a personal trainer for people like me, people who HAVE had to struggle with this all their lives and want someone to help them that understands from where they come. I LOVE working out but just need to REALLY get back into it.
