Flip through a copy of February's SHAPE magazine (on newsstands now), and you might spot a familiar face: SparkPeople member Michelle Arellano, aka SMALLTOWNMOMMY.

Now 40, this kickboxing fanatic lost 82 pounds--and has kept it off for 1 1/2 years! She has gained confidence as she shed pounds, and she credits SparkPeople and her friends on the site for her success.

To read more of Michelle's story, pick up a copy of SHAPE today--and be sure to stop by Michelle's SparkPage to congratulate her.

Chris "SparkGuy" Downie is also featured in this month's SHAPE!
