I had been slowly but steadily losing weight for about four years on Sparkpeople. My highest weight was 225 lbs. However, I gained back 23 lbs. (from my low weight of 185) after drifting away from this great site. I've just started back at Sparkpeople again after a two year absence.

I am an 12 year breast cancer survivor and enjoy life to the fullest and have recently started a jewelry making business. I want to lose weight so that I can travel and walk more comfortably due to arthritis in my ankles.

Getting back down to 185 is my interim goal.

Hi Penny, What cute cat photos! I take it your a cat person. I actually think of myself as a dog person, but I've rescued so many feral cats at work they call me the cat woman. I joined Spark People about two years ago, but am now just getting serious. Its easy to get derailed isn't it, but it's also easy to get back with the program. Good luck.
