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!!!!

    I honestly think that a store that opens at 3 PM on a major holiday should be boycotted. Who can finish a dinner by 2 PM or so and be at work so shortly thereafter? I think it reflects a lack of feeling for the worker. If we "vote" with our pocketbooks, maybe they'll get the message.

    Enjoy your week!

    It's nice that you can be thankful and it's no longer Thanksgiving. Isn't that what it's all about?
