My total pounds to goal will be 100# plus from my highest weight which was in 2011, Although I had discovered "SPARKPEOPLE". my time commitment to myself till June 1st, 2012 was minimal, and I have only lost 18#, Since June I have been recording my food consumption, attending Aqua Fitness classes 2 x per week and renewed my membership in Curves.

Jan. 2-13 - down 53#'s (35#'s with Sparks!) ya! on target.
