sparkling success with spark people

Hi, my name is cheryl and i love spark people. This wonderful community has helped me get back to a healthier weight. I had gotten heavier with age, as my metabolism slowed down more and more. I started my spark journy around 190 lbs on my 5'10" frame. I had gone up to XL and XXL, size 16 or more. Spark people has shown me that i can age with grace instead of settling for fat and frumpy. Praise God for spark people. I feel so much better, a little lighter and a lot healthier.
