I won't make it because I have been stuck at 180 pounds for awhile now. But it's ok. I feel better about myself now than I did in January when I joined Sparkpeople. <BR> I have lost 35 pounds so that is an accomplishment for me.

I never thought I could do it. 30 more pounds to go to reach my goal. It has been easier for me than I thought. I'm so happy!!!! Sat, 1 Mar 2008 19:11:46 EST
