i'm attempting to lose the remaining 150pounds that i have left before my goal. between Oct. 5th and Dec 20th of 2006, i lost 40 pounds with the help from Spark! Christmas proved to be my downfall...then January came and my husband and i separated...then February came and i wallowed in my misery...then March flew by...
so i gained back 3 pounds, which isn't bad- but i aim to melt some serious poundage here in the next months to come...."be prepared" is all i have to say to those stubburn fat cells.
