I did it once and I can do it again ! 130# off and kept off for 3 years. 80# back on now due to poor coping skills with stress. This time it stays off. I don't want to die young or be in pain until I die old. I want energy and I deserve to be happy, energetic, and fit ! I've always taken care of others, now I take care of myself. NO MORE GUILT !!! I have choices.

Update: I had actually gained 147 # from my laziness. I had been at 177# for 3 years and still felt fat and out of control, poor self esteem. October 2013 I started again because I was unwilling to totally give up on myself. I discovered I really do love myself and I am worth so much more than what I think food & laziness were giving me.

10/5/2015 Update: I have finally arrived to Onederland. 199.3# Now on to goal ! 2-15-07 spark anniversary

Personal Information:
Started 2/15/07, rejoined 11/17/2013. I work as a nurse, no stress there...I love my family and my pets. I have no children. I am 52 yrs old and tired of being in pain so I am choosing to change my life for the better, to make positive choices and to be thankful for all things in my life good or bad as it will teach me in the end.

Other Information:
Love to RV. I had a 1988 class A Fleetwood pacearrow. Mom used to joke that it is so delaminated, she expects to look in her rearview mirror some day to see a class A convertible. LOL. Work full time, so camping is weekends and one 2 week trip yearly. I have 1 dog and roomie has 2, all eskimo's. Also like to bike but have to adjust handles again as wrists go numb fast.

    TC, thank you for the goodie. Your insight is true. I love your advice. This losing weight is tough and I do just great for a while and then I just cave!

    I always enjoy your posts also. emoticon emoticon

    Thank you for the Spark Goodie! To be honest, I feel like I live the life of leisure here when I read what everyone else is contending with. You, especially! I so wish you could retire and enjoy yourself. I know you have been unhappy the last couple of years so I pray things work out soon and you get back to feeling good about yourself!

    Thank you for the Goodie. We are trying hard to stay strong, but Mike is reeling. He has not lost many relatives (and I have lost too many over the years). His Mom is not recovering well.

    The website you mentioned seems good, but I am old-fashioned and like good 'ol paper books.

    I used to have the South Beach and Atkins, but got disgusted and gave away.

    Thank you again! emoticon emoticon emoticon
