So here I am back after four years and so many life changes have gone on in that time,. Not sure I will be able to catch up but I'm going to give it a try..

Two year ago I had gastric bypass. It was had for me to visit sparks in some ways because I felt like I had some how cheated on my weight loss. Well I know that was not at all tyre but I needed the time to process the changes in my own mind.

After a bad neck injury and a bad sprained foot. I found myself once again putting on weight. So back to what I know works. Tracking my food and exercise.

    I'm so sorry you are going through a rough patch....we all have them. Try to drink all your water and remember - we are in this for the long haul - changes lives...not a quick fix "diet". I've also noticed that if I don't get enough sleep I won't lose the weight.
