I started using spark in 2011 even though I signed up in 2010. I began at 197 lbs. I also faced a meniscus tear in a knee that was repaired successfully. This SCARED me into putting my health first. I was terrified of immobility.
I reached 140 lb. goal by my weigh in on January 31st/
LATEST UPDATE: I reached my goal weight of 135 lbs. by my 60th milestone. (August 21, 2016.)

Since then I am in maintenance mode. Keeping my MOVEMENT consistent, challenging myself to reach FURTHER outside of my comfort zone, & be aware of the food choices & portions I eat are a combined part of my healthy living EVERY day...Living, laughing & LOVING LIFE is the BEST benefit this journey has given me. Reach for your DREAMS...they are attainable!!!!

    Hmm I don't know if the fitbit band fits the one. Seems they have a certain band replacement design for each model. Saw on Amazon they have loads of different types too :)

    Thanks for your comment on my blog - "diet" is a funny word as my diet is one the focuses on healthy food but I'm not on a "diet." While no food is off limits there are a few I choose to not eat or rarely eat mostly for animal rights reasons.

    emoticon to you for reaching your goal and maintaining it. emoticon

    Thank you for encouraging me on my blog the other day. I try to track and record everything, even the parts that didn't go well. It's easy for me to leave certain parts out. But I do better when I am honest and accountable! Have a great weekend!
