I have always been a big guy. Last time I was under 200 lbs was when I was 15. By 2001 I had climbed to 285.

It was then I started to set some goals. By 2007 I was down to 223. However over the last 1 1/2 years I had gain back 22 lbs.

Thats when I come accross the sparks page. I thought I would give it a try.

So far I have been very impressed with this website. Its well organized, and seems to have everything I need to motivate myself to continue losing weight.

But more important, these is one of the first web pages that I have seen where the creators are more concerned about the people who use it, than about making money from their patrons.

    Thanks for the comment on my blog - yes, as consumers I feel we need to speak with our mouths AND our wallets... the additives are getting out of control. I love reading books about the changes in our food in just the past 20 years or so. Well, I love being informed but hate the actual facts. I can understand why so many of us struggle with weight and other health problems.

    By the way - love your spark page headline, lol!! Made me laugh 1st thing this AM

    Thanks for the encouraging words that you left on my Sparkpage on the 10th. I'm sorry I didn't respond sooner but I have been out of town.

    Yes, I do believe in Jesus Christ. Not only is He my Lord and Savior, He is my best friend. He has done great things for me. . . all of which I do not deserve. If I have been an encouragement to you it truly is only because of His life in me.

    May God bless you on your journey on Sparks and may you find encouragement through so many others who have great testimonies to share.

    In Jesus name,
