    Thank you for your kind words. I appreciate also how honest and straighforward you are. The first day is always toughg as mine was today but with people like you in my corner, what do I have to loose!

    Thanks for the welcome. and good job on the 6.4 lbs. That's wonderful!! I want to get this weight off but to be honest I'm really afraid of failing again. I've struggled with weight loss for 20+ years. I hope I can make some changes this time that will be effective to my weight loss. Keep your fingers crossed for me!!

    Hi, Unfluffy.

    I'm honored that you have identified me as a SparkFriend. I'll put you on my SparkPage, too.

    What's your name?

    Do you have a username that doesn't say so much who you aren't, but that says more who you are?

    I resonate intensely with the pain--that's how I see it--in your introduction. I had a similar collapse 9 years ago and ballooned up to 245 or so. Pretended my clothes fit well enough--for years!! I felt, "How could I do that to myself?" But I'm learning from the spiritual development program that I'm part of that that's my inner critic having a grand old time beating me up. Right now, I'm able to shut him (if it's my father's voice) or her (if it's my mother's) up by saying, "Well, if you think this is such a big deal, where were you when I was overeating? Why didn't you help then?" That usually buys me a little silence from the critic. We all find our own ways to talk to that critter.

    Between then and SparkPeople, I've yo-yo'd up and down some, but mostly have made promises to myself. And lived in the future--I guess that's part of what promises are about. And worrying whether I'll keep them. And so far, I haven't always kept them. But I'm still making progress--about 12# off since late August.

    I see from your blog that you're experiencing a bit of reward for your SparkWork. I love that Japanese saying that I learned from SparkPeople, "Fall down seven times, get up eight."

    BTW, I'm assuming that you know that the champion weight-keeper-offers tried more than once. We'll get there. The key is faithfulness.
