Becoming my own success story.

2012 -- Had regained 30 pounds and turned back to Spark -- lost 70 pounds! Got within spitting distance of my goal.

So, where am I at now? I'm determined. I'm ferocious. I'm ready to keep banging my head against the wall until I figure out what will work for me. I see now that it isn't enough to lose weight -- it has to be sustainable, you have to be able to keep it off. There is no magic recipe -- the formula for success is constantly changing. And I am determined to keep up.

So it's good enough for me!

I actually have three nested definitions of maintenance I use:
