Thank you Shelia. I appreciate the words of encouragement. Wow! You did awesome losing 100 lbs. I know gaining back is terrible, but it's not the end of the world. We need to pull ourselves up off the floor, stop our pity party and take a stand (or control) and move on.
I had a training session last night at the gym. Wow! He is kicking my butt. I told my training I want to be pushed and want these last 20 lbs off by end of Sept. I keep saying to myself "you can do this" I am thinging positive and holding my head up high.

emoticon Welcome back 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!
Sheila

Hello everyone, I have been with SP since 2010. I stopped logging in for a while as I was taking care of some medical issues. During my time away I managed to maintain my weight loss (must have been all that physical therapy). Back at the gym with my trainer (2 days a week) and cardio 3 days a week. On the weekends I get out and walk (I live in NYC). Trying to drop these last 20 lbs. I guess if I ate better the whole program would work.
Looking forward to your support and company. Hope to talk to you soon. Tricia
