My wellness journey

I started this journey in August of 2007 (before joining SP in October). Since then I have lost about 55 lbs total and feel much better! Wearing a size 12-14 and a medium, which is the first time in a long time! Doing this to get healthy and avoid diabetes.

emoticon How wonderful to be celebrating your five year Sparkversary. Keep going. emoticon

Do watch the YOUTUBE series "THE SKINNY ON OBESITY" with Robert Lustig M.D. whose book "FAT CHANCE" comes out in December. It is so helpful.


I'm reading Richard Johnson M.D.'s book "THE SUGAR FIX" and have learned so much about Metabolic Syndrome/Insulin Resistance. He has a wonderful lecture on Youtube.

emoticon It looks like you may be getting back into it. The most successful sparkers are those who participate in available activities. I hope to see you on the Central PA Board.
