I Found Spark after my "failed" diet with Atkins (lost 5 lbs) for 8 months. (before that was South Beach Diet Lost 10 lbs..)
Lost and Gained Back in that vicious Diet Circle..
(I'm 5'8) Once I hit my highest weight ever: 197.7 lbs and needed to go shopping for BIGGER clothes and pants bc my size 16's were cutting me in half, I broke down in a dressing room and started balling!
I pulled myself together and REFUSED to buy anything.
I came home and searched for free support groups and found Spark!!
Within a few weeks I lost an inch or two and some weight where my 16's were not cutting me in half and I moved forward from there.
I have lost 24 lbs and many inches since! In a size 12 and XL shirts/tops now..
I need to lose 24 MORE lbs and more inches to reach my Goal/Maintaining Weight now and I will do it right here with Spark!
My Goal Weight is 148 which should put me in a size 9/10 or maybe even smaller..
I have not been near that size in over 10 years!!
I will never be the skinny size 0 girl before marriage and a baby and I don't want to be that.
I want "meat" on my bones and curves.
Just healthy, tone, fit and feel comfortable in my skin/clothes!
