Hi Debbie, my name is Larry and I just found your page. Wanted to say hello and let you know that I'm also here in Crestview. Good luck on your weight loss. I've added you as a friend so we can help motivate each other.
Welcome to SparkPeople. I have been a member since 2011 and if you follow the program it DOES work. I lost over 30 lbs in 3 months initially. I have struggled a bit since then but I am working again to get back on track. You will find the trackers (both Nutrition and Fitness) are the best tools to keep you on track.
If you need any help feel free to send me an e-mail. I live in south Louisiana and am 53 years old and retired 2 years ago.
