Slow and Steady Wins the Race

My top weight was 382 pounds. Successfully lost approximately 130 gradually over 4 years and then over 6 years, gained 100 of them back. Now have lost a total of 134 pounds over the past 11 years and seem to be gaining again -- a 6 pound gain over the last few months. Want to nip this in the bud and continue to make the progress that I've been making since 2002.

Want to nip this in the bud and continue to make the progress that I've been making since 2002. I want to do this for myself and so that I will be able to enjoy the rest of my life and be able to take care of my husband and dog. Also to be a good example to my 3 adult children. Showing that it can be done is the most important thing I think I can pass on, other than being a decent human being.

Hello,,
My name is Paula. I have been a member for a number of years, but I have not been on the site for a long time. You see, I have been through a lot of changes that has caused me to detour from my goals. I have arthritis in most of my joints. I have known about it for years but because I use to stay fit, eat right and hit the gym everyday the pain had gotten much better. But about 3 years ago I must have injured myself somehow, truth is I don't really know how or what I did to cause this. Now I have a damaged sciatic nerve that is causing me much pain in combination with the arthritis in my hips, my knees and my thumbs. I have been so depressed for years and have not been able to workout so I have gained so much weight which has caused be to be even more depressed. I just recently lost my job too so I am just really down, but I will not give up. I know the size I want to be and I am going to do everything I can to get back to that size. I need my self esteem back.

Hopefully, SparkPeople program can accommodate 12-step programs. I am doing a 90/90 and today is day 3. Gotta get this binging under control asap. Very scared. Today; so far-so good, but it's only 12:40 p.m.
