I'm down 50 pounds - at last!
I've been up and down for many years of being a Sparkpeople member but the scale always climbed up more than it did down, until mid-July 2014. It's taken 2 1/2 years, and probably an actual loss of over 100 pounds to finally have a net loss of ... Read more
Wore a suit on Christmas that I bought in 2002 ... for the very first time!
Can you believe I've held onto clothes for almost 15 years in the hope of eventually being able to wear then? Never thought it would be this long before I actually lost enough though. When I bought it, and other clothes back then, they were al... Read more

One month roller coaster ride
