New year, new hopes!

Hi friend,

Glad you came to visit my page :). I am a stay at home mom of two boys.

Have gone through many cycles of loss and gain, the same 20-30lbs always!! This time I have a new doctor to help me, who actually sat down with me for hours to know my history and then figure out an action plan. I hope I can manage my thyroid issues better with her help.

For some reason I have become very pesimistic about this whole weight loss thing. I feel, as usual I will ...
Hi friend,

For some reason I have become very pesimistic about this whole weight loss thing. I feel, as usual I will slog out and get few pounds down only to again it all back again...its depressing, even more when I see people here losing weight so easily!

Got a fitbit flex for my birthday, according to that I'm pretty active (without any added workouts). I eat very healthy. I guess I haven't found the missing piece of puzzle just yet.

I appreciate any advice on staying positive. Thanks! :)

A Happy New Year to all!

Its exactly one year since I joined back on Sparkpeople after creating a new id. In first nine months I lost close to 30 lbs and then in 3 months I gained about 20 lbs back.

I can't say I am happy about all the pounds I gained back but some how I feel happy that I figured out what was going on with me every winter all these years! Who would have thought of vitamin D deficiency! Come the colder months my weight shot up like a rocket without any change in my eating habits! Along with that came the alarming hair fall, muscle spasms, awful tiredness. I thought I was going to die!!

Finally after taking vit D3, I'm slowly getting better, weight is coming off slowly. Hair fall is not so much any more. I still have muscle cramps but I don't have to be afraid of laughing anymore!

Now looking back its only during winter I have gained weight! It took me a long time to connect the dots!

So that is it friends... Another new beginning..

I initially joined SparkPeople back in 2006! From there it was always ups and downs. After having our 2nd baby(who is 2 now) I'm back once again, hopefully for good!

I have a long way to go, but setting a goal of 50lbs for this year. Last month we got an elliptical so I'm back on track. Need all the motivation!

My aim is to get rid of 50% of my current body weight.
