hey there, came across your page. I noticed you have the same end goal weight as me. And I too work in software development and work odd hours with my masters. It's a good thing you started thinking and working on tackling your goal weight before you got bigger like me :(. I keep giving up, or have a million and one excuses of why each time I gave up. But would like to have a spark buddy to keep myself accountable lol.
Maybe it'll work this time. It would be nice to lose more than 15 lbs and keep it off, and maybe build up confidence to keep going. Best of luck! Great progress!
