I'm 80+ lbs below my all time high and I've lost over 50 pounds since Dec. 2008. In 2009 I achieved a healthy BMI 25. Then with SparkPeople I was able to achieve BMI 21, a weight I always wanted!
Check out my SparkPeople Success Story:

I've gained this weight back many times. But now with SP I've learned the relentless determination it takes for long term success! -Marsha

    Every once in a while it's rather nice to make a meal together and share the same menu: but clearly I cannot do it often. And yes, DH had LOST 3 pounds this week!!

    I thought I was the only person who did stuff like that! I will give myself a camera and just you and I will know that it is really from you! emoticon

    I would have posted a picture of my new frames but the picture turned out very dark. The whole purpose was to capture the style number, which I managed to do.

    I already have a post-requirement goal: triathlon 70.3 (half-iron). But in the course of reaching that goal, I am weighing the options for the run, and among them is training for and completing a full, building the base for it. Retired, I'd have more time to build that up.

    Edited to add: the Boston Qualifying time I looked up for Kevin, and I knew it before he did, pre-Buffalo Marathon last May. And your friend happens to be in the same age group. emoticon
