Well, tomorrow will be my first year on Spark People and I'm loving it. The weight has come off slowly and I have a ways to go but I'm 36.8 pounds less than I was last year at this time. This site has changed my whole life. I love all the help I've gotten along the way from Spark and so many new friends I have met. I think the moral support I've gotten along the way has helped me so much. If I'm having a bad day I can come here and write about the day I'm having and am always surprised at all the responses I get encouraging me to be strong or pick myself up. Not to beat myself up. I'm still cheating some but I have learned that even when I cheat it's not like I eat a whole bag of anything anymore. Portion control has helped me a lot. Now if I'm tempted to cheat it's just a little of the bad stuff. I'm feeling so much better and my self esteem is so much better too. I just can't tell you how much this site has helped me. Thanks everyone.
