Maintaining 80 Pound Loss with SP & Relentless Determination!

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!

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

Loved reading your Spark Page and seeing your race pictures. I am training to do a half marathon in June 2015 (my firs trace ever) I am not worried about rime as much as finishing for my first race. I am really excited and seeing your pictures really is a inspiration for sure

You look great! and I wish you all the best.

Remember how far you’ve come, not just how far you have to go. You are not where you want to be, but neither are you where you used to be.

I just figured that if Gary had to stay home, you could celebrate his improved health with a tofu birthday cake for Natalie! :) What a bummer for both of you! No birthday, no Valentine's party but, this is a big plus, improved health for Gary. If everyone agrees, we can move the V Day party to the following week. emoticon
