10-09-09 This is the second time I've joined Spark. The first time I joined was March 15th of 2007. Between January, 2007 and October, 2008, I lost 90 pounds (went from 256 pounds down to 166 pounds) by using the bestlife plan and Spark. I've regained 22 pounds back and need to get back on track. I need to track my food and fitness again. I want to reach my goal: to weigh 152.

Lee, may I just say that you are an amazing person! This is Cathy from the Rensselaer meeting. I really enjoyed meeting you! I've checked out your Spark Page. You have a lovely family. Congrats on your first grandchild, Joscelyn, she's beautiful like her grandma. Thanks for showing us the awesome yoga moves. I have added you as a Spark friend & would feel honored if you added me as well. Also that's great on getting your poems published. I would love to read them as I enjoy writing as well!
