I Need to Lose 99 Pounds

I'm DomsMom. I recently had a baby and ballooned up to 227 pounds. I lost down to 190 after the 6 week postpartum. Then I went on the Mirena IUD. I couldn't lose weight after that. I actually gained. I got up to 216. I am now at 210. My healthy weight is between 107 and 145. I have am at the lower end of the medium build so I should be somewhere around 117 to 125. I decided that now's the time. I need to be healthy for me, my husband and kids! Let's get this party started!!!!

I had the IUD taken out over Christmas break and have lost that 6 pounds already. I have felt desparate seeing so many fad diets. That's why I joined the Sparks team. I know with help from friends, I can achieve my goal.

Hi and welcome to the Teachers learning to Lose team. Fad diets just don't work over the long haul, we follow them for a while and then go back to our old habits. The focus of Spark is to change the bad habits and replace them with good ones. It really works!
