After losing 10 lbs on my own, I joined SP in August, 2011 and lost 15 more lbs with the help of the Spark Teams, especially the 5% Challenge. These challenges are great motivators for me. I intend to continue using them to maintain my weight loss.

Update 4/7/2017

Tomorrow we begin the Spring 5% Challenge of which I am in dire need right now to work off my vacation lbs. Geesh--will I ever learn! But I WILL DO IT... again.

Update 11/30/2016

I ended the Fall 5% Challenge at 132 lbs by eating a plant-based diet and doing regular exercise. It all fell apart at Thanksgiving, but I'm doing my best to keep the weight gain moderate. At least I now know what works to get it off again.

Update 9/4/2016

I ended the Summer 5% Challenge at 137 lbs, and I'm still there even though I've stayed with my regimen rather well. It just shows that those challenges give me the extra umph I need to make progress. With the fall Challenge I should make my goal of 133 with good muscle tone.


Update 1/29/2012
2 lbs below goal; now in maintenance. The Winter 5% Challenge helped keep me on the plan!

Update 11/19/2011
I have now lost 13 more lbs, and am just 2 lbs from goal and maintenance. I want this to be the first year of a lifetime where I eat sensibly and continue to exercise through the holidays, and do not start the new year "on a diet." After my success with the Fall 5% challenge, I have renewed faith in myself--I CAN DO IT!
