Hello! My name is Lori. I first learned about SparkPeople
in 2007 but I didn't become active on the site until recently. I have struggled with my weight for the last 13 years. I've been yo-yo dieting over the years. I try to lose weight and do really well in the beginning, lose 15-20 pounds then lose my motivation and quit. In 2005 when I weighed as much as I did when I was 9 months pregnant with my son I realized I really needed to do something so I joined Weight Watchers. I thought I finally found a program that worked well for me. I stuck with it for 8 months which was the longest diet stretch I'd ever done. I lost 44 pounds and then I had to quit going to the WW meetings. I thought I could do it on my own and continue to lose but I didn't. My WW instructor told me I would fail without the support from the meetings and he was right. I put all the weight back on plus 13 more in the last 5 years. I purchased The Spark book last year and finally read it the beginning of this year and I loved the book! I found it to be very motivating and I got my "Spark" back! Therfore, here I am finding my support from SparkPeople because I know I can't do it on my own. I now know that I can no longer call this a diet. It is a lifestyle change and I want to take the weight off and keep it off. No more yo-yo dieting for me! So, here I go on my weight loss journey.
