I'm with Marsha - since you have changed your lifestyle rather than gone on a 'diet' you will be able to maintain your weight loss. That is such a blessing - as are our SparkFriends who support us! Welcome to the team!! emoticon

Hi Amanda and welcome to the team! There's no shame in being a slow loser. By now your "diet" has become a way of life, not something you're doing for a few weeks and then giving up!! You look amazing -- happy and healthy --- and really that's what this all about!!
You look at least ten years younger, too, which is a nice perk along along the way! Your husband must be so proud of you and your boys probably love the fact that you feel like playing with them! Great job! I'd say, "Keep up the great work!" but I know you will!

Once again
emoticon !!!

Hey everyone! My name's Amanda and I joined the team about two weeks ago, but am just now getting to explore the team. My weight loss journey began in November 2009. It's been almost three years, and I've lost almost 90 lbs. I seem to be the poster child for losing slowly!! It was only recently that I embraced slow loss, however, and that's when I decided to come join you all here. I'm looking forward to getting to know the team! :)
