I am 50, mother of 6 working fulltime, and live just outside Philadelphia, PA. I joined SP at the recommendation of a nutritionist after losing a great deal of weight and struggling with maintenance. I started at 456 pounds and made it to 148 3 years ago. Sadly, I relapsed in a major way and dropped off SP as I fell. I originally lost all my weight on a liquid protein diet with 600-800 calories per day (actually I did that same diet 4 times and lost over 200 pounds each time and then gaining it all back).

Recovery has been slow -- and the weight is not helping.
