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

    Hi Trish,
    Thanks for adding me as a friend. My weight loss has been slow, about a pound a week. Most of my initial weight loss was from when I was in the hospital recovering from a heart attack. Lost 8 pounds in that week (back in January), since then it has been slow but pretty steady. Ten pounds since the beginning of May is great, that is something to be proud of. Everyone always tells me that it is better to lose it slower, you tend to keep it off better. I will find out if that is true because I have always tried the fad diet, lost the weight but gained most of it back. Even on Atkins I lost 50 pounds in 4 months but gained back almost 20 of it over the course of 2 years. This time I think it will work for me because of a total lifestyle change, and the encouragement and support from friends on Sparkpeople like you, and a lot of prayer. I am truly sorry about your son and what you had to go through. I praise God that you have returned to Him and are letting Him help you through your trials. We need to turn to Him at all times, though we are human and sometimes forget that but He is always there waiting for us. God Bless.

    Hiya Trisha, Thanks for the post on my page. It is great to here you are back with God. However hard it is, however much we don't understand the things that happen it is always better with God.

    Sorry to here about you son, I lost my son back in 1981, he was 16 months old. Rememeber when we don't understand things God is the only one we can turn to, we still might not understand why stuff happens but at least we aren't on our own.
