So this is what 10 stone looks like! 46 poounds lighter than when I returned to Spark People!

The jester's hat I knitted for a friend. Think it will put a smile on her face.

- I'm a reborn Sparker after discovering I need the support of teammates to continue eating properly and maintain motivation to exercise.
- Last time round I had no Spark page, no Spark friends, and although I documented my food & exercise, I may just as well have been doing it myself. Didn't work. I need support of others going through the same experience.
- This time I blogged, friended, joined teams (now I'm co-leading two!) and its made all the difference. Mutual support works!
- I achieved my revised goal weight today - March 7, 2011, as I have now been able to fit back into the size 12 which I previously thought an impossible task, since before returning to Spark People I was struggling to fit into even really loosely cut size 20 clothing.
