*** Go girl, keep it up.. remembering that it can be gained much faster than it took to lose the weigh. I was like you, could eat any thing, gained weigh.. lost it and gained it back time and time a gain, with life, problems, and going through many trails, of dealing with being single and homeless, and generally un happy in side, with while wearing th mask of happyness, for others to see.. but in side I have been dying a slow death, my tools were and are my fork..and knif and spoon. Got up to 486 pounds, worked down to 303 up to 30 yo yo ing through out the years, but have not gone past 350 for the last 9 years. I still have some 220 pounds to lose. I am thank ful to Spark people, may be with Spark people I may have gone back up over 400 pounds.
