Watch: How Dave and Julie Lost 220 Pounds*

By , SparkPeople Blogger
Dave (dave3977) and Julie (jujumiller) Miller joined SparkPeople in February, just after starting their weight-loss journey. In just 11 months, they have shed more than 220 pounds--137 for him and 87 for her, with another 60 and 30 to go, respectively. What a great success story!

Now the couple is being called "Cleveland's Biggest Losers" by their local TV station WKYC. This morning, they were on the news to show off their slimmer, healthier selves and share the secrets to their success.

Watch the two-part segment here.

Dave, down to 232 pounds from 369 pounds

Dave says: "(We) could not have gotten this far without you.  Thank you so much!  It’s not over for us, either.  We will continue to use SparkPeople to stay on track as we continue to lose weight." 

Julie, down 87 pounds, is just 30 pounds from her goal weight!

WooHoo, Dave and Julie! Great work!

*Weight loss results will vary from person to person. No individual result should be seen as a typical result of following the SparkPeople program.

Thanks for sharing and great job! Report
It is so great to have the support of each other. It is so hard to eat sensibly when a partner chooses not to. Congrats to you both! Report
It's great that these two are working toward a common goal together. When one partner makes dramatic changes for better health and the other stays behind, things can get touchy. One partner may feel unsupported and possible sabotaged and the other may get very defensive.

Change can be tough on a relationship or it can strengthen it. Report
Congrats! Report
