I started Sparking in June of 2007. By using Spark and some self discovery along the way, I'm down 50 pounds, and am holding steady at a healthy weight. Spark is a massive site, you'll be discovering new and exciting things for months to come! * Diet is a dirty word. Every time I hear it, I wash my mouth out with chocolate!

Hi, I'm Sandy and as my user name says, I live in Largo. DH and I moved to FL from VA just about 10 years ago for his health. Thanks to the wonderful folks at the Bay Pines VA, he's doing so much better. They even were able to qualify him for a VA disability pension Only problem with that is because of the rules on the pension, I had to stop working. About 8 years ago, we both lost a considerable amount of weight by going on the South Beach diet and doing a lot of bike riding. Along the way we were given the cutest small dog named Odie who needs to be walked regularly. We also started watching America's Test Kitchen and using their recipes. The food is wonderful but their portions are HUGE! We've put some of the weight back on, ;( So we decided to go back on the South Beach diet again. There is a local produce stand just up the Pinellas Trail from us where I can get fresh fruits and veggies from. We'll be starting the diet on Mar 1.
