I joined Spark People in 2007. I did not become active until a year ago. I remember going to the doctor and the scale read 191#. Of course in my mind I only weighed 186#, which is was bad enough. I decided to join a few different groups with the plan to lose 30#. Well, I am just shy of 30#. I made and I could not have done it alone. It came off slow and somehow because of all my Spark People support over the year, I never lost focus or became impatient. I plan to continue to work on 15# to 20# at 66. I am excited to continue. I have met so many wonderful people. I love the support. I am having fun wearing smaller sizes. Yes, size 12 jeans. They were tight. I will get there. I am not a frequent blogger, but I do love the chit chat and reading everyone's notes. I just wanted to say thank you for being my friend and I hope to make many new friends in the coming year.
