❤ LadyStarSparkel - Once a Model... Now ~100lbs Overweight! Ugh!!! SO DISCOURAGING!!!! ... PRAYING!!! Jan '18 started GREAT & lasted about a week. Now it's Sept & I'm trying again with a New Strategy... Use Coaching!!! SP Premium Coaching, Kaiser Permanente (my Medical Provider) Cosching, & 24Hr Fitness Coaching. Without Accountability, Validation, & Encouragement I simply give up too easily!!! What follows is a Synopsis of my History... Slender until my 40s (~135-145lbs), I went through "The Change" early (42) and Weight started "Coming On." I went from ~145lbs to 220lbs by the time I'd reached 50. At 50, I found a Strict Support Group & lost 70lbs!!! WOW!!! I kept the weight off for ~6 years!!! I swore I'd NEVER put it on again!!! But, "LIFE HAPPENED"... My Rigid Support didn't bend with my changing life... By 60 ~250lbs!!! (Now, 63, ~265lbs??? YIKES!!!) I PRAYED for "Something" to HELP Get & Stay MOTIVATED!!! ***Sparkpeople*** had seemed the Answer!!! I began my SP Adventure in April 2015... GOAL: to get to ~150lbs & STAY THERE!!! I GREW DRAMATICALLY thru SP!!! I went From feeling a HOPELESS to feeling ENTIRELY SURE THIS WAS GOING TO HELP ME!!! (Dropping 5lbs in 5 days will do that!!!!) Sadly, my Enthusiasm & Weight Loss didn't last. * I did lose ~25lbs thru Sparkpeople's BLC28 (Biggest Loser Challenge). At the end, however, I experienced some Traumatic Stuff there & DROPPED OUT of SP Altogether!!! Result??? I promptly put on 30lbs!!! Ugh!!! * I didn't think I'd come back to SP... "A Few Bad Apples" had ruined it for me!!! Now, January 2018 is here... I"ve a New Kaiser Doctor, who I looking forward to meeting, I'm back to Sparkpeople & Joined Premium... I'm OPTIMISTIC AGAIN!!! YAY!!! [* NOTE: Enormous Disappointment upon meeting that "New Doctor" is probably what Squashed my Enthusiasm & Optimism... She didn't even so much as offer a Good Pep Talk!!!] Sept '18: Maybe with "Actual Support" I can again really use SP!!! This time, I PRAY to STICK with it!!! * I've LEARNED SO MUCH HERE & MET SO MANY FAB SP FOLKS!!! ♡ ♡ ♡ BLESSINGS to ALL!!! ♡ ♡ ♡ TODAY, I PRAY (AGAIN!!!) to PLEASE KEEP UP My MOTIVATION!!! (No Matter What!!!) xoxo ❤ SparkelStar (aka Constance in Berkeley, CA)

    Thanks for the add and good luck to you with BLC. It's my first time here but from what I've seen the last week it looks like a great place to find that support system you're looking for.

    Thanks for commenting on my photos. The one where I'm dressed mostly in black was taken at a charity event in Disneyland several years ago. Thanks for bringing that fun memory back to the forefront.

    emoticon to Spark People. This is a fantastic resource to learn, get motivated, stay inspired and travel with like minded people who encourage us along the way. After three years I am still not a goal but I can say I have lost 50 lbs and kept it off. That's the amazing part. Keeping it off is new to me. I attribute that largely to Spark. As well, I haven't lost sight of my goal. In the past I always did.

    Also, emoticon , to BLC! You're going to absolutely love it.

    emoticon for the friend add. Have added you too. emoticon
