About a year ago, Ebony Lugo joined SparkPeople and set out on her journey to healthy living. Since then, the 23-year-old New York City resident--known as SWEETZMIX--has lost 48 pounds and been named a SparkPeople Motivator!
We're not the only ones who have noticed Ebony's success; USA Today featured her in its sixth annual Weight-Loss Challenge in the newspaper and online at dietchallenge.usatoday.com
. The series focuses on losing weight on a budget. In addition to joining 100% FREE SparkPeople, Ebony started cooking big batches a few times a week and eating breakfast at home every day instead of dining out, saving hundreds of dollars a month!
