I CAN DO THIS. YOU CAN DO THIS. WE CAN DO IT TODAY.

Heaviest weight ever: 308 pounds
Starting SparkPeople weight: 278.5 pounds

I lost 30 pounds before joining SparkPeople and another 40 since. My weight, my blood pressure, my fasting blood glucose, my total cholesterol and LDL have all dropped. I lost so many inches on my waist that I had to buy a leather punch to make new holes in my belts.

I am grateful to my SparkFriends and the Spark Community for their friendship and their support. Thank you all.

Yes, Fitness Blender is online & it is FREE! There is a 'guy' & a 'gal' & they do the workouts. There are lots of videos to choose from - probably 100-200. Anyway, you can search by level (1-5), time, equipment, part of body, &/or type of exercise (pilates, aerobic, etc). They don't have music, just some talking. So, I turn on my own music. It works for me! I guess I'll hop over & pick out a workout for tomorrow. emoticon
