Hi. I learned about "SparkPeople" in December of 2006, and when I got serious about tracking my nutrition and exercise I was able to lose 25 pounds in 6 months. I want to be around for a long time for my family so after losing 29# with Spark People I went on to the Medifast diet. As of Sept 2008 I had lost 57 pounds and had only 3 more to get off. I have spent most of my adult life gaining so I could hardly believe what I was able to write on this page about losing weight!

Currently I'm struggling with regaining some of the weight. Those nasty old habits have reared their heads. That doesn't mean I have to stay at this point though. I am using SparkCoach and I will do the work again, learn new and better habits, and reach my goal of 60# off!
