I am also now one of the co-leaders of this team. I have been with Sparkpeople now for about six years, give or take. Weight wise, I've been on a roller coaster in a way. Life threw a lot at me around 2008/2009/2010 and that was not kind to me or my waist line at all! Since Dec 2011 though I have lost around 40+ pounds and have about 15 or so more left to go which I hope to drop this spring and summer as we become more active. Hubby, son and I are avid gardeners and camping and hiking enthusiasts. We love hiking around, geocaching, rafting down creeks, and identifying wildlife and plants. When we're not camping then we're at home rushing to preserve all the food we grow! In fact I keep a blog about producing some of what we do grow (which I gave a seed giveaway on recently). In between doing all of that I also work full time at a govt travel agency so come Spring & Summer our lives are pretty hectic! I am trying to get back into the SP bit again to hopefully help me stay motivated to lose this extra stubborn 15 pounds because really, I'd love to get back into my size 8's again!
