I've been on and off this site for nearly 10 years now! I know that this is where I'll find the tools and support to help me find success. There are some pretty amazing people here!

I've struggled with my weight my entire life. I've lost (and gained) 50 pounds numerous times. In the last few years I lost over 70, but the weight is slowly coming back. As I get older, it gets harder to lose, so here I am...back to SP to help get things back in control before I undo all of my hard work. No more yo-yoing....working on making this a lifestyle.

I've recently downloaded the app to my phone to help with tracking. I LOVE it! It's so much easier than running to the computer to log food. It's also helping me to be more active on the site.

My Program:
Working on eating right, WATCHING PORTIONS, and keeping my body in motion! I've taken up running, but am certainly not a serious runner. It's the only form of exercise I've ever stuck with.

Personal Information:
I'm from Massachusetts, married with 2 teenage boys.
