  • How many false starts?

    10/21/2014 5:16:23 AM, by LOVAGE

    I'm back, fatter and more miserable. I've been a member for years, part of my prevarication about losing weight and my emotional eating. Still struggling with my own and family's mental health issues. Lost my job! Now well over 50, well over 250lbs, and well over the hill. So, let's have another ... Read more

    10/21/2014 2:10:25 AM, by GABRIELITA57

    Well, as the title says, this is my second go around and I do hope that I can follow through this time. I definitely need to lose weight for my health and my self-esteem, and I need to make several life style changes. I am counting on my Spark friends to encourage me, and my desire to be... Read more

    Well amazingly I have managed to lose A pound even without being able to go to the gym. I'm kind of proud of that, wishing it was more, but understanding that it's not. If you don't do the time, you can't get the reward. That's only fair, but it doesn't mean I have to like it!! I am... Read more

    10/20/2014 11:16:04 PM, by BMCC488

    This morning I didn't get up early to do WATP. I'm a bit disappointed in that, but I'm not going to beat myself up for it. I've been getting more sleep this past week than I normally do, and mainly at night instead of broken up like I sometimes do. That can be more important, I guess. My test w... Read more
