In 2002/03, I was asked to be part of the Lean Pockets Tales from the Scales promotion after their products helped me to successfully take of over 100 pounds. My before (ugh) and after (yay!) picture showed up on around 5,000 Lean Pockets boxes, and it was weird seeing myself in the local grocer's freezer! Now that I'm trying again, Lean Pockets are still a significant part of my efforts... and I love them!

I am a mother of one. I am 43, and I have a job as a freelance book editor, a very sedentary job that requires me to sit for long periods of time in front of my laptop. Back in 2003-04, I was - quite literally - a poster child for weight loss when I undertook the Healthetech Balancelog program, coupled with Nature's Sunshine herbs/supplements and low-calorie foods like Lean Pockets.

At that point, I lost 154 pounds in one year, simply by adjusting my diet (I didn't join a gym or anything like that), but I put the weight back on quickly (and then some) once I was out of the limelight and didn't have the motivation of thousands of people seeing me in spandex in Women's World or on the back of Lean Pockets boxes. My base goal is to lose 100 pounds in 2014, though I would actually like to lose more than that. Why? Because I want to feel healthier and happier, inside and out, and - most of all - because I want to be a good influence on my daughter and participate in more activities with her.

My Goals:
I want to look and feel better, and that starts with getting rid of half of me! I have done it before, and I will do it again.

My Program:
I KNOW that the Spark Nutrition Tracker will work if I work it. How do I know? Because when I did BalanceLog a few years back, I lost 154 pounds in just over a year...and it worked virtually the same way.

Personal Information:
I am a mother of one, living in Ohio with my daughter and three little dogs. I am an independent book editor and freelance writer as a profession.

Congrats on your re-loss, Lib! I know you can do it if you put your mind to it... and yeah, as long as you remember everything you put into those yummy lo-cal masterpieces you cook (because I am super, super OCD about counting every single thing I eat), I'll gladly take your leftovers! emoticon

Thats Awesome!! Since I am the only one that is "eating right" then when I make a yummo meal Ill send some over for you to try! I lost 1.9 pounds from the 1.3 I gained last week. Lets see if I can stay on a steady loss instead of the roller coaster I usually get on. :0)
