I Get Knocked Down But I Spark Up Again (221.2)

Saturday, May 04, 2013

End of radio silence...On March 18th, 2013, after more than ten years, my husband filed for divorce and on March 22nd, 2013, after more than nineteen years, I received my BA in Biology from the University of California at Santa Cruz.

And, after Sparking since January 15th, 2010 I FINALLY lost some D$%@# weight!

THIRTY pounds baby on the ticker and really FIFTY pounds from my highest weight of 271.

I slid down the pole from morbidly obese to just class I obese.

(Cause you gotta have goals...)

    I'm sorry to hear about your marriage... unless you aren't sorry- then YAY?

    but kudos on the loss! i think we're pretty much at the same weight now. of course i am higher than my original starting weight... so eeek!

    Glad to see you back! most of my sparkfriends have disappeared and I don't feel compelled to even be here anymore
