I'm trying to lose weight and get healthy.
The first picture is on my 50th birthday in 2003.
Unfortunately, I've gained weight since then -- as you can see in the second picture. And lost weight..... YAY!! Still more to lose.
--------------------------
May 9, 2010 -- And I've gained more weight since then. I feel unhealthy. Time to come back to Spark.

July 17, 2013 -- I'm still struggling with my weight. But now it's time. You know ...

July 17, 2013 -- I'm still struggling with my weight. But now it's time. You know how that feels. I have a physical challenge, so it's harder for me to walk now. I feel terrible in my body. It's time.
The last few months, things have come to my attention that have urged me towards becoming a vegetarian. The final push was finding out about the "Eat To Live" program while I was surfing the net for [unhealthy] recipes. So I came back to Spark and found the wonderful ETL Group who have helped me through the last 3 days following the ETL program. And they don't even know how much they helped me yet! Going to join the group now....
---------------------------
March 8, 2014 -- I am thrilled with the progress I have made -- down 3 jeans sizes. It's much easier for me to walk and get around. I plan to lose at least 20 more pounds.
The new picture shows me on June 19, 2013, and me on March 1, 2014.
--------------------------
August 14, 2014 -- Over a year on this plan and I've lost 45 pounds. I've gone down to size 16 jeans. I am still extremely happy with this plan. No cravings. A little bored with the food, but I'll just have to try more new recipes.

Hi Kola, I guess parchment paper woks well? it doesn't burn or anything right? I checked out silicon liner on amazon but it was bit pricey.
Have a wonderful rest of your weekend.
