Tue, 18 Oct 2011 20:37:15 EST The 17 Day Diet Hello I started on here 3 or 4 years ago I lost 20lbs on my own then gained it back. I lost touch with Sparkpeople and couldn't even remember my username and password. So i started a new one and decided to start fresh. I was just wondering has anyone on here tried the 17 Day diet? I know people who have lost a lot of weight on this plan. So I was wondering if there is a group on here supporting it? Thank-you Mon, 17 Oct 2011 00:09:34 EST Grandmother for life I'm a 43 yo Grandmother of two. My husband and I are raising the boys, ages 19 mos and 4 yo. My husband is 10+ years younger than me. Over the last two years I've managed to gain over 50 lbs, considering I was heavier than I should have been before that, that's not good. I'm out of shape, and the boys run me ragged. I've got to get this weight off, as it is hurting me, and get into better shape. I want to be around for my husband and my boys, be able to have fun with them, do activities and n...

Hello , I just want to stress the importance of couponing You MUST WATCH ! you must pay attention to make sure your "On sale" items or items you are purchasing marked prices and ring up prices are the same ! Just because its marked 9.99 doesn't mean it will ring up 9.99 If you don't pay attention you will end up paying full price or more than full price for your item and the coupon you used will not even be worth using ! also a helpful hint Most people don't pay attention to is At WALMART if ...
