Hello Mandy. Thanks for sharing your story here. You are also a hero, it is no doubt. Many people would give up even before the first try. I can't imagine how difficult it was for you before, and it is even harder now. But you are not alone.
My personal experience (not as excited as yours definitely, I lost only 40 pounds) shows me that it is not difficult to lose weight, though we need to do it wisely and don't rush, otherwise, we can harm our body. The biggest problem and challenge is to sustain it. We are all here to support one another. Good luck and I believe you will get there.

Set your goal measurable and achievable, focus on what you want, be always self-motivated and you will get the result.

Hi Mandy,

Welcome!
I am sorry for your loss. Losing a parent is so tough and can affect us in many ways. This community is really supportive. Members are helpful and encouraging.
Being active here will help keep you motivated and accountable. The Nutrition and Fitness trackers are awesome tools. I use them daily.
Just take it one day at a time. You can do it!

Best of luck to you!

Go to the "Learn" tab above and get started. Visit the website every day and use the nutrition and fitness trackers religiously. That's what worked for me and many, many others and most of us did not get it right on the first try. Welcome to SparkPeople. Never give up!

Hello. My name is Mandy. Once again I am on the path to weight loss. I was about 200 pounds in high school but not due to laziness. I worked, went to high school, was in the marching and pep band, was a cheerleader, and very active in general but was still very overweight. I lost a lot of weight having children. I got down to wearing a size 2 (about 115-120 pounds, I do not recall the weight). I then became disabled. I gained a lot of weight. I not only went back up to 200 but I passed that and got up to 215-220. I began working on weight loss and I would lose some but then I kept gaining weight due to depression. In November my Mom (my hero and best friend) passed away. I am now about 260. I am MISERABLE. I feel fat, ugly, and honestly I feel like a loser because instead of losing weight I seem to lose the battle. I WILL be successful.
