This is a GRAND place to be and as you said, "...pray that sparking is my key to maintenance success." It was the key to mine. At one point I was down to 170 lbs. but as you see my ticker is up, because I'm on and off steroids right now, and I've been told not to exercise or do ANYTHING until after my heart surgery. There have been some days that I try and do some marching in place or just walking back and forth in the house, but even that I can feel it stressing my heart. However, when they put me in the wheelchair, I knew they really meant business. I have all the confidence in the world that the excess weight will come off, once I'm able to get around and exercise, again.
That being said, the long and short of it is, If you WORK the PLAN, the PLAN will WORK!!! I'm proof of that! It wasn't easy and I have to really dig deep and find my inner strength, which God empowered me with, keep seeking after God every moment, do what I knew needed to be done, whether I wanted to or not, and come back to the message boards often, for support and making and meeting some great ladies and gentlemen, who became my friends, and then my family. There's no way this site and what you choose to do here, if it's the right thing, can FAIL!!! Unless something medically is going on with anybody, this site can't FAIL. Again, I'm living proof of that!
I want to be your personal cheerleader !!! I'll scream and shout at the top of my lungs, to keep you motivated to make your mini goals, which will add up to your ultimate goal. If there is anything I can do for you, just HOLLER and I'll do the best I can to give you a hand up!!

Hitting message boards day one feels like I'm moving fast. I'm looking to get rid of 104 lbs to lighten the load on my heart (my knees and feet will probably be grateful too.). I've lost significant weight before but pray that sparking is my key to maintenance success.
