Hi I am a spark people veteran been a member for over 12 yrs and still trying, I had weight loss surgery back in October 2009 a gastric sleeve, initially lost 60 lbs very quickly but then i found i could eat what i liked but in smaller quantities so no loss but no gain, I am now trying once more to get my head sorted out.
I JOINED SLIMMING WORLD in September 2017 writing this December 2017 so far I have lost 25 lbs I am loving the plan nothing is out of bounds...I am sure that this time I will reach my goal and stay there doing it the slimming world way....and the help of sparkpeople I will succeed

    Hello Trisha,

    I've been away from Spark People for a while and need to return. This seems to be the only thing to work for me. I need to track food and record it,'s all downhill.

    I noticed a couple of things about your post. One, you have a GSD? It looks like one from the photo. I have one as well. I adopted/rescued him last year. Now, he'll be 6 soon. One of his favorite things to do is walk with me and go for car rides. This brings me to the 2nd thing I noticed - your beautiful pathway for walking. I see it in your picture. You are fortunate to have such lovely roads for walking. The 3rd thing I wanted to share with you is a little trick I have found that works for me. When I crave something sweet I know I need to avoid it at all costs 100% of the time. it seems that once I get that taste in my mouth from a cookie, candy, chocolate, cake, etc.; my body will actually crave MORE! It will continue to crave it for days on end. So, I have to keep it away and not give in. Maybe that's not a big secret but it has taken me many years to learn. *Perhaps I act like a smoker with their cigarettes....once they have one, then they crave more!
    Now I need to learn how to create my own page like you have. Nice page!

    Trisha, your photos are absolutely wonderful. Thank you for sharing them with us. You are obviously a strong and as well as beautiful woman. We are better for having you as part of the team.

    Hi Trisha. I had a nephew who did some kind of stomach surgery and lost over 80 some pounds. He is doing well so far. My whole family has battled with weight. I lost many years ago down 77 lbs but seemed to be sick all the time. Doctor told me it was to small for me, no matter what the charts said, so I gained back. I have 2 children and 5 grandchildren. I keep busy with reading, embroiding and bowling plus running after the grandkids in their sports. I have lower back problems so need to get off at least 50 lbs to help make it better. I am in the state of Iowa which is snowy and cold but this year has been not as bad as other years. Would love to keep in touch and battle this together. emoticon
