    This is GREAT! That's how I lost my weight, 1 pound a week until my body said "I'm Done" at about 128 pounds. :) (And then I FORVED it to lose more by cutting carbs for a fitness competition... that wasn't my favorite part of the journey :)

Thanks for your comments on my SparkPage! Congrats on all your success as well! You have made such improvements in your health as well as appearance! GOOD JOB!

    Isn't it amazing when we think of what a transformation one year can make! Our weight didn't come on over night, but we always think it should come off fast. 1 pound/week is SO doable! Looking forward to celebrating all of the "New Me's" next New Years eve!

    I like your way of thinking. You will make yuour goal in no time if you stick to that plan. Imagine, 52 pounds a year, you would definitely be a new you and looking a whole lot better.
