Thanks for your support MOM2ACAT :) It's nice to hear from someone who had successfully lost weight and has maintained the loss as well.

Welcome to Spark!
You've come to the right place! I joined 8 years ago, and Spark has been the only way that has worked for me; having the support on my teams and from my Sparkfriends has made all the difference. Even though I am at my goal weight, I still need help maintaining that; that and all the friends I've made here is why I have stuck with it all this time.

My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in hospice care for metastatic breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.

So I have had a steady weight gain after meeting my husband, then getting married, and having two kids, this weight gain as resulted in about 90lbs in 11 yrs. I have yo-yo'd throughout this time. Well a year after giving birth to my last daughter I was shocked to weigh myself at 221. I swore I'd never let myself get over 200lbs. So I really hope I'm fed up enough to make some REAL lifestyle changes... permanent ones.
