HI, Thanks for the encouragement. WOW !! 100 lbs that is great....... Well, yesterday was an off day...I went out with my husband and ate 2000 calories instead of the 1200-1500 I am suppose to eat, so I am back on track today. I weight myself this morning and I was 148 from 150.....now if I can just keep in that direction.

Hi and welcome to SparkPeople, Pattie. There are so many great tools and great people involved with this site. I'm sure that SP can help you along on your journey to a healthy lifestyle. Good luck reaching your goals!
My goals were similar to yours and it took me about 5 months (as I remember). I actually lost too much and my friends told me I was too thin. I raised my goal weight but I have had a hard time staying there. Maybe my body is trying to tell me something. The good thing about the whole spark adventure is that now I exercise regularly (which I did not do before) and my eating habits are much more healthy.
Take a few minutes to make up a sparkpage making it public allowing members to post a message to you on it
Also don't forget to participate as often as possible on all the groups you have joined

Unless the Lord had given me help I would soon have dwelt in the silence of death. When I said, 'My foot is slipping' your love O Lord supported me. When anxiety was great within me your consulation brought joy to my soul (Psalm 94:17-19)
