I started because I realized the weight gain would not stop unless I did something about it.

I just got tired of being the biggest one in all of the family photos. Plus I hated the way I looked when I looked in the mirror.

I weighed 242 lbs. and I couldn't stand myself. I avoided mirrors, my friends, my church and everything else that meant so much to me. One morning when I woke up I said "ENOUGH" and I started looking for a diet that would work for me. Weight Watchers was out. Too much food for me and too many choices. I went down the line until I found Spark and the rest is history. I won't say I followed their diet to the letter but I used it as a guide line and now I'm at goal weight. I still use Spark as my guide line and probably always will but I have Spark to thank for getting me to goal and I do.

I started because I have wayyyy too many health problems at such a young age and I want to be healthy and HERE to enjoy life with my 10 year old daughter. It's not even about being skinnier. I'm fighting for my life!!

To build confidence, be healthier, and feel comfortable in my own skin. I want my children to see me accomplish something positive, that will keep me here longer, for them.

My comments are all over tis page but I'll add one more. When we had family gatherings, I was the heaviest and I always stayed in the backround.. I heard someone whisper something about me and that did it for me. I joined Spark.

I started because there is no point in starting IVF overweight. So, I started for the child I haven't conceived yet.

I started because I wanted to love the person I saw in the mirror. I wanted to be proud of one day saying "YES" I did it. I have lost weight but still on my road. I am happy that when I look back I have made progress instead of say wish I had started my change in healthy life stlye. This is a challenge for me. but I like challenges, it makes me a stronger person inside and out.
