I have been heavy most of my life. My body type is athletic, but not with the sexy athletic legs but the heavy kind of POPEYE style type legs. I have struggled all my life with showing my legs in any way and to make matters worse, LOL, my rear is what I consider large as well so safe to say I have never thought of myself as a particularly sexy woman. But that is all changing and I have never felt so good about myself ever! My husband said to me the other day, "WOW babe, your legs look awesome, and you have a sexy backside!" I was floored because I never thought to hear a compliment like that about my most hated part of my body. I was beaming from ear to ear for a very long time thinking wow what a great way to feel.

Proof IS in the pudding and the scale acknowledged my hard work with success!!! Today I am happy to post I am down to 225 lbs, from 248 when I started and have almost obtained my goal to lose 10lbs in September!! I have only 5 more lbs to lose and I can check off another goal reached!! I am saying goodbye forever to 23lbs and I am determined never to see it return!!

I have really never felt so happy and so healthy in my life and I wanted to say thank you to all the support and good vibes I get from SPARKPEOPLE friends and staff. Thank you for being there for us when we have our good days and especially for those bad ones!!! Thank you for giving us the tools and the encouragement to make our goals a reality!! I have told just about everybody I've met that my life changing success is greatly in part of SPARKPEOPLE and the articles and equipment they give us!!

You know the hard work and the determination is all worth it when you see results!!! Thank you all for helping me to find my way to MY FOREVER healthy and happy change of life!!!

Your friend,
Barb

    I'm beginning to get a lot of excess skin, now. But I guess it is still worth loving because it is a part of me.

Don't forget to pat yourself on your back for your efforts! And a good job spreading the Spark!

  Way to go! Just think of those compliments when you are having a bad day - should bring a smile to your face and hopefully get you out of the funk. Best of luck on your 10 lb goal in September. You can DO IT!

    Great Job, I hope to be there some day soon! I am working out really hard and loosing it, but my skin is so loose and jigly. Ugh.. I am thankful for what I have done, I just don't like the way it looks.

    Must be nice to finally feel comfortable in own skin, instead of keep wishing to have this and that looks. emoticon

    Way to go, Barb! *happy dances for you*

I think Spark has truly been the only thing that's ever helped me lose weight in a way that is healthy and manageable... I love just about every aspect of it! I'm glad that you found it and that it is working for you - and I'm glad that you've found it in you to go with it :D
